AUGUSTA, Ga. -- He crossed the fairways to uninterrupted applause, the galleries as thrilled as ever to see him, the Spaniard with the Pepsodent smile and magical game. It has been this way at the Masters, or at any tournament actually, for more than a decade now. The only difference yesterday was the middling score on the board. Looks like another lost week for Seve Ballesteros.It is all a little hard to believe, this. Ballesteros' legend is safe if he never wins another tournament, but at issue suddenly is how often he will indeed win again, if ever -- a startling question to ask about a golfer considered the world's best just two years ago.He is only 33, an age at which many golfers just begin to discover their potency, but he was an Amadeus who began winning tournaments 15 years ago, and there are signs that after cramming the substance of a long career into a decade, he is losing that palpable fire that has made him so identifiable, successful, the most charismatic golfer since Arnold Palmer.

NEW YORK -- Northrop Grumman Corp., the second-largest provider of computer services to the federal government, will close its Greenbelt-based computer-resale unit, which employs 365 people. Northrop said Jan. 24 that it intended to "exit" the business, either by selling the unit or closing it. At the time Chief Executive Officer Ronald Sugar said the business was "no longer a strategic fit" for Northrop. The Los Angeles-based company received offers from as many five other companies to buy the business but felt a sale would take too long, company spokeswoman Juli Ballesteros said yesterday.

SOUTHPORT, England -- Seeking the crowning glory to his recent comeback, Seve Ballesteros weaved his way through the wind-swept sand dunes of Royal Birkdale until a finishing surge carried him into the first-round lead yesterday at the 120th British Open.With a steady 25-mph wind blowing off the adjacent Irish Sea, the 34-year-old Spaniard played with a consummate control that never has been the hallmark of his game, particularly in recent years.But on the final two holes, the swashbuckler in Ballesteros took over as he eagled the par-5 17th and made a 45-foot birdie putt on the 18th for a round of 4-under-par 66.It was one better than the 67s shot by Santiago Luna, also of Spain, Martin Gates of England and Chip Beck of the United States.

AUGUSTA, Ga. -- The Masters begins today at Augusta National Golf Club with the smart money riding on Fred Couples, Nick Faldo and Seve Ballesteros. The safest bet of the week, though, is that there will be first-rate theater on the final holes early Sunday evening.The tournament has delivered a stirring finish for six straight years, with three playoffs and three one-stroke wins decided on the 72nd hole, the latter including Ian Woosnam's victory a year ago. Not since 1983 has a Masters been decided by more than two strokes.
