GREENSBORO, N.C. -- The undeclared duel between Davis Love III and Fred Couples played second lead yesterday to the cast of players fighting for first place in the Kmart Greater Greensboro Open.Grabbing shares of the spotlight with 5-under-par 67s were Phil Blackmar, Brian Claar, Jeff Maggert, Robert Gamez, Kenny Perry and Bill Britton. Love and Couples have won two tournaments each this year, quite an accomplishment compared with the six leaders' six career tournament wins.Love, winner last week of the Heritage Golf Classic, struggled to an 71, due in part to consecutive bogeys on the back nine.

KEY BISCAYNE, Fla. -- This is a rare moment of respite for Chi Chi Rodriguez. It's Wednesday, his only day off, and he is taking a siesta at the Sonesta. Naturally, the phone rings."Chi Chi," a voice says, "hope I'm not disturbing your nap or anything.""Well, sort of," Rodriguez replies, no trace of unpleasantness in his voice. "I'll tell you, just give me a call back in a while."Rodriguez, 56, drifts off again and, as always happens before he nods, the memories come back. He is 7 and back behind the plow in Bayamon, Puerto Rico.
