Some prominent name is about to get left out. More than one, really. It might be Paul Casey or Luke Donald, even though both are ranked among the world's top 10 golf practitioners. It could be Justin Rose. Or Miguel Angel Jimenez. Or Edoardo Molinari. All have won big tournaments in the last three months. Could it possibly be three-time major winner Padraig Harrington? Certainly you can all but write off Sergio Garcia. "It's a headache," European Ryder Cup captain Colin Montgomerie said recently.

PERTH, Australia - Colin Montgomerie fears he could be out of golf for months rather than weeks after his back problem acted up again in the second round of the Johnnie Walker Classic. Montgomerie, who was the European PGA Tour's Volvo Order of Merit player every year from 1994 to 2000, withdrew on the 12th hole yesterday and immediately made plans to see a London specialist. "I don't think I will be back for a long time," said Montgomerie, 38. Montgomerie was scratched from the English Open last June when the problem first flared up. Intensive treatment enabled him to play the U.S. Open the following week, but the injury resurfaced at the end of the season.

Colin Montgomerie believes Tiger Woods will return from his marital problems to win more majors but says he won't be the iconic player who dominated golf for the last decade. Woods has taken an indefinite leave from the game after admitting to infidelity. Europe's Ryder Cup captain told BBC Radio on Sunday that he had no doubt Woods would come back and add to his 14 majors, but he said the mystique had now gone. "He will come back, but whether he will retain that mystique as an iconic player, I'm not sure," Montgomerie said.

Four-time Bay Hill Invitational winner Tiger Woods added his name to the commitment list for next week's PGA Tour event, again cementing another strong field for host Arnold Palmer's annual spring fling. Woods, who has won four of his past five official stroke-play events worldwide, including last week's Ford Championship at Doral, took this week off in advance of Bay Hill. For now, he still resides at Isleworth, located just across the Butler Chain of Lakes from Bay Hill. "A week off, and you don't get many home games," he said Sunday night.

PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. -- Remove the asterisk from Tom Kite's record. Remove the albatross from his sunburned neck. The leading money-winner in the history of professional golf finally has something to back up his fat bank account.Facing gale-force winds on the front nine, and the pressure of winning his first major championship down the stretch, Kite erased some bitter disappointments yesterday to win the 92nd U.S. Open, at Pebble Beach."It was such a struggle," said Kite. "I don't know whether this is getting over the hump, but I can't remember a much better feeling than this in golf.

LYTHAM ST. ANNES, England - Colin Montgomerie has spent much of his career chasing an elusive four-headed monster, following it around the world for nearly a decade. It has taunted him during playoff defeats at the U.S. Open and PGA Championship. It has teased him at the Masters. Yet this creature has caused the most Grand Slam havoc for Montgomerie on his home turf, terrorizing him for years at the British Open. The 38-year-old Scot finally found a sliver of redemption yesterday in the opening round of the 130th Open here at Royal Lytham and St. Annes.

ST. ANDREWS, Scotland - The four muscles arrive first. Wearing Nike shirts, caps and shoes, they surround the green with necks tight and eyes darting. "Get down! Everybody quiet!" they shout. The preening caddie comes next. Behaving as if a golf bag gives one immunity from good manners, Steve Williams forgets he is a guy carrying clubs, acting instead like a thug protecting a don. "No photos, please, thank you!" he screams with every other breath. Finally, here comes the golfer himself, strolling and smiling and standing famously over that Nike ball after another mind-swiveling shot, but is it too late?

GULLANE, Scotland - Colin Montgomerie hired a new caddie a little more than a month ago, hoping that Andy Prodger would bring him the kind of luck and magic that worked so well when Nick Faldo won the first of his three British Open titles here at Muirfield in 1987. Then Montgomerie dumped his old set of Callaways after shooting a 3-over-par 74 in the first round of the 131st Open on Thursday. If yesterday's round of 7-under 64 is any indication that making changes could be good for one of golf's long-suffering stars, who knows what might be next?

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.

AUGUSTA, Ga. -- Maybe he is just setting himself up for another of his now legendary comebacks. Maybe he is trying to give the rest of the field at Augusta National for the 64th Masters a false sense of security. Or maybe Tiger Woods was merely proving he was human. What could have been disaster for Woods yesterday was saved by a couple of late birdies that helped him walk off the wind-swept, tricked-up course with a 3-over-par 75. It left him seven shots behind first-round leader Dennis Paulson.
