Constellation Energy Group remains committed to sponsoring golf's Senior Players Championship at Baltimore Country Club in October, but an executive acknowledged Monday that the recession has raised concerns about its involvement beyond 2011. "This would not be something that we'd take on if there was no contract in place, but we will uphold our [five-year] commitment," said Stacey Ullrich, Constellation's executive director for marketing and community outreach. Organizers held an event Monday to launch awareness of the tournament, which raised $400,000 for local charities in each of the past two years.

BETHESDA - -The scene around the first tee at Congressional Country Club Friday was what most envisioned when Tiger Woods announced three years ago that he would be hosting a regular Professional Golf Association tour event over Fourth of July weekend. Fans stood five-deep in most places, 10-deep in others, hoping for a glimpse of the world's best player. But when Woods leaves after Sunday's final round of the AT&T National tournament, big-time golf in Maryland will suffer the latest painful blow.

Walter Andrew Romans Sr., a retired golf professional who worked at the Baltimore County Club for nearly four decades, died in his sleep April 16 at St. Joseph Medical Center. The Homeland resident was 93. Born in Warren, Mass., and raised in Utica, N.Y., he became a caddie as a teen to help support his family after his father's death. "He kept coming back, working hard and asking questions. He learned the importance of yardage, how to read the greens and, most important of all, friendly customer service," said his son, Walter Andrew Romans Jr. of Brookeville.

Seeking a compromise in Roland Park dispute At every bargaining table, each party must start by understanding what's non-negotiable for its opposition. So in the ongoing deadlock between Baltimore Country Club, Roland Park, the Keswick Multi-Care Center and now the city, it's useful to review the non-negotiables ("Roland Park proposal imperils zoning code," letters, Jan. 5). The Baltimore Country Club needs cash - at least fair market value for the 17 acres of land it has on the auction block to pay for capital improvements for its historic clubhouse.

The Baltimore Sun's editorial "Tie-breaker" (Dec. 15) rightly notes the stalemate between the Roland Park community and the Baltimore Country Club on the Keswick Multi-Care Center's plan to build an assisted-living facility on land that now belongs to the country club. This stalemate is an opportunity for the city to take a leadership role in moving the project out of Roland Park and into another area in the city that is in need of redevelopment. There is no need to destroy green space to build such a center when there are so many sites throughout the city, including near Roland Park, that are in need of redevelopment.

Hundreds of Roland Park residents packed a community meeting last night to hear Keswick Multi-Care representatives promote their plans to build a facility for the elderly, but few were persuaded by the company's arguments. Keswick administrators and project architects told the crowd at Roland Park Elementary School that the $195 million proposal would not increase traffic in the neighborhood and would leave undeveloped most of the 17 acres being acquired for the project. Baltimore Country Club is planning to sell the land to Keswick for $12.5 million.

Let's not mince words: Des Smyth does not have a pretty golf swing. He picks the club straight up, gets it completely off plane, pauses, then goes after the ball like a hockey player looking to rip a slap shot top shelf. It is - when you compare it to the fluid tempo and graceful turn that many players have on the Champions Tour - downright ugly. But don't take someone else's word for it. Just ask Smyth. "It looks far worse than it feels," Smyth joked yesterday, chuckling in his native Irish brogue.
