OLYMPIA FIELDS, Ill. - There are no breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean, as there were at Pebble Beach in 2000. There is no talk of this being "The People's Open," as there was last year when the U.S. Open was played on Bethpage Black, the monstrous public course on Long Island. There seems to be a decided lack of buzz about this year's national championship, which begins this morning at Olympia Fields, an 80-year-old club 35 miles south of Chicago. It doesn't help that Tiger Woods, the 103rd Open's defending champion, comes in amid some of his most lackluster play in four years.

LET'S REVISIT for a moment Bethpage Black, the public golf course on Long Island that was tailor-remade for the 102nd U.S. Open, which ended last Sunday. Perhaps you heard some of the pre-Open blather about the course being too long for anyone but Tiger Woods and a few other really long PGA hitters. Longtime Columbia resident John A. "Chip" McDonald wasn't all that surprised. Starting nearly five years ago, McDonald could see it coming. For he and his Jessup-based, family-run company did much of the work that turned Bethpage from being merely hard into a monster, 7,295-yard, par 70 - yes, 70!

FARMINGDALE, N.Y. -- The U.S. Open has spent the past century going from one private country club to another, with an occasional stop at a place such as Pebble Beach that is a public course only in that it charges everyone the same triple-digit greens fee. That changes today when the 102nd Open will begin on the famed but once-forgotten Black Course at Bethpage State Park. Though Tiger Woods and the other 155 players competing here won't have to sleep in their cars to get a tee time or pay their $31 greens fee, as weekend hackers do, they will have to contend with the longest course in Open history, which U.S. Golf Association officials hope will live up to its nasty reputation.

FARMINGDALE, N.Y. - Before making Tiger Woods an immortal lock to win the 102nd U.S. Open here on the formidable Black Course at Bethpage State Park, consider this piece of minutia. In his already legendary career, Woods has never won a major championship on a par-70 course. That's zero wins in eight majors dating to the 1997 Open at Congressional Country Club in Bethesda. But Woods seems as daunted by this particular drought as he usually does by a downhill 10-footer for par. Going for his eighth major title and trying to revive talk of another Grand Slam after winning the Masters in April, Woods said the longest course in Open history could ultimately be in his favor.

FARMINGDALE, N.Y. - He hasn't won the 102nd U.S. Open just yet, though there was a sense of inevitability following Tiger Woods throughout his opening round yesterday on the Black Course at Bethpage State Park. His score of 3-under-par 67 had given Woods a one-stroke lead over Sergio Garcia, though with the exception of the 22-year-old Spaniard and Phil Mickelson down the leaderboard a few notches at even-par 70, there didn't seem to be many others in the hunt with major championship mettle.
