Ever since the PGA Tour announced last week plans to move the Booz Allen Classic from its regular spot in June to October beginning in 2007, there has been speculation that the tournament could lose its title sponsorship when the current contract runs out after this year's event. Steve Lesnick, chairman and chief executive officer of Kemper Sports, which has run the tournament for more than 30 years, said in a telephone interview yesterday that he wasn't sure which direction the tournament would take if the Washington-area consulting firm pulled its financial commitment after only three years.

Employee volunteers from Booz Allen Hamilton's Aberdeen office delivered more than 200 backpacks filled with school supplies, in addition to several boxes of additional materials, to support Edgewood Elementary School students as they kicked off the new school year. For the fourth consecutive year, Edgewood Elementary School made their school supply list "optional" for students because of the current economic environment. With nearly 70 percent of students at the school receiving free or reduced-cost meals, the school views this as a way to reduce the financial burden on families.

BETHESDA - To many pros in this week's Booz Allen Classic, there's a single word that explains why this year's tournament has drawn eight of the top 10 golfers in the world and 17 of the top 25. Congressional. The 81-year-old country club in Montgomery County has played host to some of the sport's grandest events. Using words such as "classic," "traditional" and "wonderful," several players agreed that the move of the tournament to Congressional from TPC at Avenel in Potomac is what attracted its strongest field in recent memory.

Last year's embarrassing leak of spy-budget details gave insight into just how lucrative the business of federal contracting has become since the 2001 terrorist attacks and the 2003 start of the Iraq war. At a Colorado conference sponsored by the Defense Intelligence Agency, a PowerPoint slide revealed that 70 percent of intelligence dollars go not to government employees or agencies, but to private companies such as SAIC and Booz Allen Hamilton....

POTOMAC -- If Ben Curtis does nothing else in his career, his surprise victory in the 2003 British Open at Royal St. George's secured a place, however obscure, in the history of the game. Problem is, Curtis has done little, if anything, since that sunny summer day in Sandwich, England. Ranked 396th in the world at the time of his win, Curtis got as high as 33rd after the victory but is back to 205th. "I've been telling a few people, I feel like I did three years ago," Curtis said yesterday.

BETHESDA - The most exposure Matt Gogel has received in his first five years on the PGA Tour came during a high-profile tournament that he seemed to have won, and later lost, while doing little wrong. Fans still remind him of the day at the 2000 Pebble Beach National Pro-Am when Gogel, then a rookie, watched Tiger Woods make an eagle and two birdies on the last four holes to win. "I guess that's the star power of Tiger," Gogel said yesterday. "I still think they probably remember the fact that I won in 2002 [at Pebble Beach]

A federal judge has dismissed two lawsuits filed by the consulting firm of Booz Allen & Hamilton Inc. last year that alleged fraud and negligence by Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Maryland and eight of its directors.The lawsuits, part of a tangle of litigation involving the health insurer, were filed in response to an earlier action brought by Blue Cross against Booz Allen.

The 9-to-5 workday is about as passe as typewriters. People telecommute from home. They cram a 40-hour workweek into four days. They arrive and leave well before rush hours. These flexible work arrangements are increasingly seen as a way for companies to hang on to their best employees. In a recent study from the Families and Work Institute, a nonprofit research group, more than half of workers said they didn't feel they had enough time for themselves, their partner or their children. Even so, flexible work arrangements are not so widespread that you can expect to land one no questions asked - especially if you're new to a job. For example, an institute study found that 39 percent of a sample of large and small companies allow some employees to work a condensed workweek at least part of the year.

POTOMAC -- The circumstances of Ben Curtis' two PGA Tour victories could not have been any different. The first, coming in the 2003 British Open, took place at venerable Royal St. George's before a crowd of 37,000 boisterous fans on a sunny Sunday afternoon, with Curtis watching as some of golf's biggest names hacked up the last few holes to hand a then-unknown 26-year-old rookie a one-stroke win and the coveted Claret Jug. The second came yesterday, in...

POTOMAC -- Ben Curtis took down the sign outside the pro shop at Mill Creek Golf Club a year after his first PGA Tour victory, the sign proclaiming the public course that his grandfather built near Columbus, Ohio, as the home of the 2003 British Open champion. "He wanted to get the monkey off his back," Nancy Plant, one of Curtis' aunts and a part owner of the club, said yesterday morning from the clubhouse as she followed her nephew's third round in the Booz Allen Classic on the Internet.

In a key first step to the anticipated relocation of tens of thousands of jobs to Maryland under a national military base consolidation, a major government contractor opened the doors yesterday to its plush new waterfront offices near Aberdeen in Harford County. With about 150 local employees, Booz Allen Hamilton Inc. expects to double its presence in the coming years as military operations move to Aberdeen Proving Ground from New Jersey, and a state official said the company became the first of the large contractors to make the leap.

POTOMAC -- After going to Congressional Country Club in 1980, the Kemper Open became a must-play event on the PGA Tour schedule. Though the move seven years later to the nearby Tournament Players Club at Avenel lessened its popularity among the players, it still seemed to be one of the tour's more stable events. Now it's teetering on extinction. Uncertainty is the dominant theme going into today's opening round of the Booz Allen Classic, the third year under that corporate logo after one year as the short-lived FBR Capital Open.

Potomac -- Padraig Harrington hopes the feeling returns by tomorrow, by the time he tees it up for real at the Booz Allen Classic. When he played a practice round yesterday at the Tournament Players Club at Avenel, his mind was still at Winged Foot, replaying the final round of the recently completed U.S. Open. Specifically, Harrington was still thinking about the last three holes, all of them resulting in bogeys, taking the 34-year-old Irishman from a shot behind Phil Mickelson to two behind the eventual and unlikely champion, Geoff Ogilvy of Australia.
