It was a sentimental stroll around Hayfields Country Club yesterday, as Bob Gilder will be sad to see the Constellation Energy Classic leave that venue and Arnold Palmer hinted that it might have been his last golf tournament. When the Champions Tour marks a decade in the Baltimore area in October 2007, the Constellation Energy Senior Players Championship will be a major and move to Baltimore Country Club. Gilder will be going for a three-peat of sorts after he won his second straight CEC yesterday.

Another of golf's big names is coming to Baltimore later this month for the Constellation Energy Classic. Hale Irwin, a three-time U.S. Open champion who has won 40 events on the Champions Tour, informed tournament officials that he would join the field at Hayfields Country Club in Hunt Valley for the $1.6 million event, scheduled for Sept. 27-Oct. 3. Irwin will be added to a list that includes eight-time PGA Tour major champion Tom Watson, defending champion Larry Nelson, reigning Senior Open champion Peter Jacobsen and Senior British Open champion Pete Oakley.

Two guys who have some history on Baltimore's Hillen Road held court in yesterday's first round of the $1.7 million Constellation Energy Classic. Jim Thorpe, who went to Morgan State on a football scholarship in the late 1960s, had the lone eagle of the day and birdied four of the last six holes to post a 6-under-par 66 at Hayfields Country Club.

Who knew fun could be so exhausting? Just ask anyone who got into the swing of things at last week's Constellation Energy Classic. There was lots of golf to watch and play with members on the PGA Champions Tour. And there were a few good parties to enjoy -- and recover from -- as well, particularly Saturday's shindig thrown by Constellation Energy CEO Mayo Shattuck and his wife, Molly, at their Guilford digs. Molly said they decided to pay homage to golf's origins by having a wee bit of a Scottish theme.

Fifty years after he introduced himself to Baltimore with a victory in the Eastern Open at Mount Pleasant Golf Course, Arnold Palmer can still take a golf tournament to another level. Palmer, whose triumph here in 1956 was only the third of 92 career titles, rarely plays in competitive events anymore, which is why it was such a coup for the organizers of the fourth annual Constellation Energy Classic to lure him into the field for the PGA Champions Tour stop at the Hayfields Country Club on Sept.

Most of the players who finished the first round soaking wet were also too slippery for the leader board in yesterday's Constellation Energy Classic in Hunt Valley. Of the top 10 scores in the first round, nine came from those who played in dry conditions, before rain began pelting the Hayfields Country Club course in mid-afternoon. The only survivor was Caves Valley member Jim Holtgrieve, - whose 2-under-par 70 left him in a tie with four others, three shots off the lead. Holtgrieve's success came mostly at the beginning of his round, with three birdies over the first seven holes.

The improvement John Harris has shown in his three seasons on the PGA Champions Tour is reflected in his steadily improved scoring at Hayfields Country Club over that span. Harris, one of a group who came to the Senior circuit after a stellar amateur career, made his debut here in June 2002, one week after turning 50. He improved each round and ended at 221, tied for 63rd. A year later, it was 217, and a tie for 28th. Going into the today's final round of the Constellation Energy Classic, he stands tied for 17th after shooting 70-69 for two trips over the 7,051-yard course.

When Jerry Pate started his final round eagle-birdie-birdie, he thought he had something going at the Constellation Energy Classic yesterday at Hayfields Country Club. As things developed, that burst produced a high-water mark for the Pensacola, Fla., resident who has been laboring recently with much more important high-water problems at home caused by Hurricane Jeanne. Pate, who nearly withdrew after not playing well in the pro-ams, struggled to shoot a 1-over-par 37 on his first nine in the opening round, but he closed with a 33 on the back nine, then shot 66-69 on the weekend for a 54-hole total of 205, and a tie for sixth.

How firm was Bob Gilder's control of the Constellation Energy Classic? The 54-year-old from Oregon wasted two-plus days' of pacesetting work with a double-bogey dip into the pond on the par-3 third hole, but steadied himself while his pursuers spun their wheels and actually made the turn with a bigger cushion than he had at the start of the final round. Gilder's unassuming visage evokes Mister Magoo, but his eyes turned steely when it counted, as he completed a wire-to-wire romp with a 5-under 67, a record-setting 54-hole total of 18-under at Hayfields Country Club and a four-stroke win, his first on the Champions Tour since April 2003.

Funk could be in field in 2006 Fred Funk could be among the rookies at the 2006 Constellation Energy Classic. Funk grew up in Prince George's County and coached at the University of Maryland before developing into a PGA Tour mainstay in his late 30s. Funk won the Tournament Players Championship this year, what is considered the regular Tour's fifth major. After he turns 50 next June, Funk is expected to split time between the PGA Tour events where he has a good history, and select events on the Champions Tour.

How low can you go? The Constellation Energy Classic looked more like a limbo contest than a golf tournament yesterday afternoon as a mild breeze and some sweet shot-making delivered a leader board that should make for a memorable final round at Hayfields Country Club. The pacesetter hasn't won in more than two years and his followers include the likes of Tom Watson and Curtis Strange. Bob Gilder had a 67 that left him at 13-under-par 131. He posted the best two-day score ever at Hayfields, equaled the CEC's 36-hole record and positioned himself to become its second straight wire-to-wire winner.

Bob Gilder wants to be distinguished for something other than his perfect attendance record on the Champions Tour this season. Tom Watson, whose status as one of golf's all-time greats was secure decades ago, is among the men stalking him in the Constellation Energy Classic. Gilder tied the course record with an 8-under-par 64 yesterday, showing the way in a first round in which 53 of the 78 players were at par or better on the welcoming greens of Hayfields Country Club. Watson birdied Nos. 16 and 18 for a 66. He hit 17 greens in regulation.

Unlike the Champions Tour, Rick Rhoden wasn't idle last weekend. While the tour's top players took a week off before resuming their pursuit of points and position in the Charles Schwab Cup in the Constellation Energy Classic, Rhoden teed it up in Denver. On Sunday, the former baseball All-Star pitcher won his third consecutive John Elway Celebrity Classic, but he's had enough of beating the likes of Al Del Greco, Mickey Tettleton and Jack Marin in his second professional life. Playing on his third sponsor's exemption of the year, Rhoden was the first of the six men in at 68 in the first round of the CEC. He's not knocking being the best ever on the Celebrity Players Tour, but wants to be a regular on the Champions Tour.

LEE TREVINO was always one of the most entertaining players in professional golf, but now - at the age of 65 - he's also a miracle of modern science. The "Merry Mex" has returned to the Champions Tour after a lengthy layoff, choosing the Constellation Energy Classic at Hayfields Country Club to put his bionic lower back to its first real test since he underwent revolutionary surgery in Germany four months ago. The procedure involves the insertion of small titanium rollers to create space between the discs and reduce the likelihood of nerve inflammation and painful back spasms.

Hale Irwin is out, but Tom Kite has been added to a Constellation Energy Classic field that includes 20 of the top 25 money-winners on the Champions Tour. Irwin notched his 43rd victory among the 50-and-over set Sunday, at the First Tee Open at Pebble Beach. After competing three straight weeks on the Champion Tour's just-concluded West Coast swing, the most successful player in tour history notified local organizers late Monday that a sore back would prohibit him from coming to Baltimore.
