POTOMAC -- It was so long ago that Billy Andrade couldn't remember, for a moment, when or what it was. When was the last time he had won a golf tournament?"

The dream was the most vivid Rebecca Andrade remembers ever having. There was a young, slender and attractive girl walking along a beach. "I knew this was going to be one of my kids," says Andrade, who was pregnant at the time. "She was going to be fine, but she was going to have some difficulties. I don't know where this came from, but I just knew it." Today, she says she believes the dream was a prophecy of her daughter, Kelli, one of twins born Jan. 29, 1999. The girls were born prematurely, and their survival was a matter of poor odds.

POTOMAC -- Billy Andrade wouldn't trade the experience of winning his first PGA tournament here at the Kemper Open last year for anything. However, he would like to have it back to perhaps change a few of the things that followed his playoff victory over close friend Jeff Sluman."

ROCHESTER, N.Y. - As with most major-championship venues, Phil Mickelson has bittersweet memories of Oak Hill Country Club. It was here, in 1995, that he made his Ryder Cup debut, winning all three of his matches, but watching the U.S. team lose to Europe by a point. This long, tight course that punishes the smallest mistakes took its toll on some of the game's other elite players in yesterday's opening round of the 85th PGA Championship, but not so much on its most frustrated star. With a 4-under-par 66 that gave him a share of the lead with Rodney Pampling of Australia, Mickelson put himself in position to either add to his lengthy history of misery in majors or end one of the game's most dubious droughts.

POTOMAC -- The satisfaction of being on top of the golf world TC left Billy Andrade as quickly as it came.Five years ago, Andrade broke through on the PGA Tour in a very big way. His first victory came at the Kemper Open, and he liked the experience so much, he relived it the following week with a win at the Hartford Open.Andrade was the first player in 12 years to post his inaugural tour victories in consecutive weeks, but a not so funny thing happened on his way to stardom. He hasn't had a successful Sunday since, but Andrade got a leg up on that elusive third tour win with a 5-under 66 in the first round of the Kemper Open yesterday.

POTOMAC -- Maybe it was fitting that the pins here have white flags. After two days of intense heat and record-setting scores, the Tournament Players Club course at Avenel officially surrendered during the third round of the $1 million Kemper Open.A course-record 8-under-par 63 by Ted Schulz late yesterday morning set the tone, an afternoon rain delay of nearly two hours did its part to soften things some more and a bunch of red-hot players smashed the place to smithereens. By early last night, Schulz and his round were merely a footnote.

SAN FRANCISCO -- The U.S. government allowed a former commander in El Salvador's leftist guerrilla army to settle in the United States and receive thousands of dollars in payments as an informant even though officials at the CIA and the Justice Department were convinced he had been involved in the killing of six Americans in 1985, a new report has concluded.In a summary of a classified report on the matter, the inspectors general of the CIA and the departments of State, Justice and Defense cited contradictory claims about whether U.S. diplomats or intelligence agents were ultimately responsible for allowing the former rebel into the country in 1990 in return for his services as an informant.

POTOMAC -- This is the kind of day it was at the Kemper Open yesterday:Ben Crenshaw crushed a drive on the 16th hole, but he hit it so good it went too far and ended up in a fairway bunker. His shoulders were sloped to about belt level when he grabbed a 4-iron and belted it . . . into the hole, 180 yards distant."What can you do?" he asked, rhetorically. A galleryite answered, "Go pick it out of the cup."The very next shot Ben hit, on the par-3 17th, went in the water. An eagle followed by a double bogey.

WASHINGTON - A sharply divided U.S. Supreme Court affirmed yesterday the right of states to impose harsh prison terms for repeat criminals, upholding a pair of 25-year sentences for minor offenses imposed under California's tough-on-crime "three-strikes" law. In two 5-4 votes, the high court said the long prison sentences do not violate the Eighth Amendment's protection against cruel and unusual punishment even when meted out for crimes such as shoplifting...

If someone would have told Johns Hopkins coach Frank Margraff before last night's game that his team would set a school record for offensive plays in a game and run up 487 yards in total offense, he probably would have been elated. But in hindsight, it didn't matter much. In spite of running 91 offensive plays, the Blue Jays (2-1) were beaten, 50-27, by Division III powerhouse Bridgewater (3-0) at Homewood Field. Bridgewater's Davon Cruz led all rushers with 212 yards on 14 carries and four touchdowns.

NORFOLK, Va. -- Sometimes, it truly is better to be lucky than good, and that is why the Old Dominion women's basketball team will advance to next weekend's Mideast Regional semifinals.The No. 2 Lady Monarchs were pushed to the limit yesterday by a scrappy Purdue team that nearly pulled off the biggest upset of the NCAA women's tournament, but a potential winning layup with five seconds to go in overtime spun halfway down the basket and out.Instead, Old Dominion, the top seed in the region, held on for a 69-65 nationally televised win."

CHASKA, Minn. -- A year ago, Mike Donald was nearly at the top of his profession. He came within an inch of winning the U.S. Open at Medinah. But the birdie putt, on the 17th hole of a 19-hole playoff against Hale Irwin, rolled over the cup. Irwin won with a birdie two holes later.A lot has happened to Donald since the Open, most of it bad, some of it tragic. Pearl Donald, who was close to her bachelor son, died of complications after heart surgery this year. Donald's game, which began to sour shortly after the Open, has deteriorated badly this year.

POTOMAC -- Sometimes golfers on the PGA Tour have a hint that a good round is lurking. They might have made a few putts the previous week, or felt things coming together on the practice tee.And sometimes, like yesterday at Avenel, they have no clue at all.Tour rookie David Toms, who had missed the cut in his last five tournaments, shot an out-of-nowhere 8-under-par 63 to take the opening-round lead at the $1.1 million Kemper Open.It tied the course record, set last year by Ted Schulz, and gave Toms a one-shot lead over Jay Don Blake.

POTOMAC -- When the Kemper Open moved from Congressional Country Club in Bethesda to the Tournament Players Club at Avenel five years ago, more than merely the ZIP code changed.The event went from a course for monstrously long hitters such as Greg Norman to one for long shots such as Billy Andrade. Inaugural champion Tom Kite called Avenel "a thinking man's course."It will still take a lot of thought to win the $1.1 million Kemper Open, which begins today. But for the first time since the tournament left Congressional, it will also take some extra distance off the tee."
