Now the spotlight turns squarely on Corey Pavin. Colin Montgomerie had the honor of playing first, taking his share of heat for leaving a top-10 player and a PGA Tour double winner out of Europe's Ryder Cup lineup. It's a debate that won't truly be settled until Oct. 3 — and only if the Scotsman is clutching the trophy. But the European team captain's storm — pick three of five players ranked among the world's top 22 — was predicated by what he aptly termed "an embarrassment of riches.

SOUTHAMPTON, N.Y. -- He bogeyed the first hole on the first day of the tournament. Went on to bogey five more holes that day. Hit only six of 18 greens in regulation. That's how Corey Pavin won the U.S. Open.He was six shots off the lead after 36 holes, as close to the cut mark as to the leader. Still three shots off the lead after 54 holes, out of sight and mind, so displeased with his game that he spent an hour on the practice tee after the round. That's how Corey Pavin won the U.S. Open.

It's a gray area Teddy Greenstein Chicago Tribune Has anyone had a worse 2010 than Jim Gray? Once known for grilling Pete Rose — and not accepting Rose's lie about not having bet on baseball — he now needs to regain his credibility. Like Tiger Woods at Firestone, Gray is fighting the dreaded two-way miss: Too soft on LeBron James, too harsh to Corey Pavin (assuming he really did utter "You're going down!" to the Ryder Cup captain)

POTOMAC - Although some casual golf fans will be disappointed that stars like Tiger Woods, David Duval and Phil Mickelson will be skipping the Kemper, there are plenty of people who don't mind the absence of the creme de la creme. Players who are struggling to retain their playing privileges on the tour see weeks like this as a chance to break through, much like 1999 champion Rich Beem did. "Without the top players in the field, you might have a slightly better chance to win," said Bart Bryant, who graduated from the tour's qualifying school this year.

ST. ANDREWS, Scotland -- It sort of figured that it would be here, at the home of golf, the most traditional of British Open venues, that the modern game's most unconventional player would blast his way into the consciousness of the fans.That's just what happened yesterday at the Old Course on a bright, blustery and cold afternoon. It is where the new John Daly tamed some old demons and decided to show the world that he is a more mature and patient golfer -- and a genuine threat to win his second major championship.

In Phil Jackman's column on Monday, it was noted that the ballot for second base on The Baltimore Sun's all-time team did not include Dave Johnson. The omission was due to an error by the newspaper, not the Orioles. A corrected ballot will run in all editions of The Evening Sun and The Sun on Thursday, June 6. The Baltimore Sun regrets the error.-Reading time, two minutes:When Ben Brundred, general chairman of the Kemper Open beginning at Avenel Thursday, says, "We've probably got the best field we've ever had," he's not blowing smoke.

AUGUSTA, Ga. -- They are leading the 58th Masters tournament after one round. But if Augusta National had a marquee rather than a leader board, you barely would see their names.Call it being obliterated by a legend.That's what happened yesterday, when American phenom Phil Mickelson, defending champion Jose Maria Olazabal of Spain and David Frost, a South African now living in Dallas, each shot 6-under-par 66.That's what happened when a fellow with a closetful of green jackets and a ghost of a chance came in at 5-under 67, a fellow who turned back the rapidly advancing hands of his 55-year-old clock with an opening-round score that equaled any he had shot in his 36 previous Masters.

SAN FRANCISCO -- Tom Lehman will play in the last twosome of the day in the final round of the U.S. Open for the fourth straight year when he tees off today at the Olympic Club. But for the first time, Lehman will not have either a share or sole possession of the lead."The pressure will finally be on the other guy," Lehman said after climbing into contention with a 2-under-par 68 to move him within four shots of third-round leader Payne Stewart. "It's something a little different. Maybe it's better for me."

POTOMAC - There will be no Phil Mickelson for "Phil's Army" to follow this week. And likewise, as one might guess, Tiger Woods won't be taking any swings in tournament competition either. But Corey Pavin will. Pavin is one of a handful of headliners who chose to be at the Tournament Players Club at Avenel two days after the U.S. Open to compete in the Booz Allen Classic. Why isn't Pavin taking it easy like many others? Because after taking most of March off, Pavin thought he needed to get back on the course and play.

POTOMAC -- Paul Stankowski can pinpoint the moment when his life on the PGA Tour changed dramatically, when the success he found during a two-year period began to fade. It was a few days before the start of the 1997 PGA Championship at Winged Foot. Stankowski, then considered one of the tour's rising stars, needed to finish in the top three to make the Ryder Cup team. "I started changing my swing, from being very steep to being flat," Stankowski said yesterday. "I didn't like the way I looked on videotape.

Ted Schulz (1991), David Toms (1993), Pavin (1995), and Davis Love III (1995) had shot 63. As it turned out, none of them was a winner, although Love was the closest with his playoff loss to Lee Janzen a year ago."

Corey Pavin was the only one, and it didn't come as a big surprise to anyone.Long considered one of the game's toughest players under pressure, a player whose first major championship was long overdue, Pavin shot a 2-under-par 68 to beat Greg Norman by two shots and Tom Lehman by three.
