The scoreboards and scaffolding have come down at Caves Valley Golf Club in Owings Mills, and the venue has returned to its members and corporate clientele. Yet with the success of the LPGA's inaugural International Crown won by Spain last Sunday, it doesn't seem to be a question of whether the LPGA will return to a club that prides itself on periodically hosting major championships, but when and with what event. "I would like to see us play whatever we and they want to play here," LPGA commissioner Michael Whan said on the final day. I think this course can hold anything on the LPGA schedule.

The Spaniards, who arrived at Caves Valley Golf Club in Owings Mills last week with confident games and rather anonymous profiles, left Sunday carrying the glistening silver trophy and wearing the four individual crowns for their victory in the eight-country, 32-player event.

For consumers, it's clearly good news: Oil prices have fallen to a five-year low, and gasoline prices have dropped to the lowest point in seven years.But for Crown Central Petroleum Corp., a Baltimore-based gasoline refiner and marketer, the drop in oil and gasoline prices is anything but good news.The company, which hasn't shown an annual profit since 1990, said that it cut production at its largest refinery, in Pasadena, Texas, by 20 percent because of a severe decline in U.S. Gulf Coast refining margins.

Crown Central Petroleum Corp. said yesterday that it had completed the sale of $125 million of senior notes -- more than it originally planned -- as investors appeared to signal some optimism about the loss-plagued oil company.Demand for the high-yield bonds was so great that the Baltimore-based refiner and marketer increased the planned $100 million offering by 25 percent. The notes promised to pay buyers 10.875 percent a year over their 10-year life, but because they were sold at a slight discount, they will actually pay almost 10.92 percent.

Some athletes take to a sport after watching a memorable performance. Others simply are born to play it. Hall of Fame golfer Carol Mann's career path was set when she couldn't see her head in a mirror made for young ballerinas to study their movements. "I made my ballet debut at the Lyric Theatre [in Chicago], in a little-kids ballet," recalled Mann, who grew up in Rodgers Forge and lived there until her parents moved to Chicago after her freshman year at Notre Dame Prep. "That was my first experience of performing in the public.

When Mike Leiter practices archery at the Harford Bowmen club at Susquehanna State Park, it might not appear he is having fun. Leiter, one of the most successful archers in the country, is a quiet person, especially when practicing. Each shot, even when he's not at the club and is just practicing at his home in Fallston, is a slow process. He draws the bow back deliberately and takes several seconds to line up his shot. After the release, Leiter's stoic face doesn't change, even if he knows it was a bull's-eye.

I do not follow horse racing all year but found myself intrigued by the Preakness and followed it to see if the Kentucky Derby winner prevailed. Once that happened, there was an excitement about the Belmont Stakes and a possible Triple Crown winner! It felt like having a Triple Crown winner would be a small, positive thing for the United States to be momentarily excited about. So when I saw California Chrome lose to "fresh" horses that did not run the previous two races, I had to agree with owner Steve Coburn that this was very unfair and that the owners were "cheaters" ( "California Chrome co-owner Steve Coburn apologizes for critical comments," June 9)

ELMONT, N.Y. - As California Chrome began his recovery from a foot injury that might have contributed to his flat performance in the Belmont Stakes, his co-owner, Steve Coburn, stood by harsh comments about owners and trainers who run fresh horses in the third leg of the Triple Crown. An unrepentant Coburn said the Belmont, which pitted numerous fresh horses against a tired California Chrome, was "like me, at 6-foot-2, playing basketball with a kid in a wheelchair. " Coburn had become one of the stars of California Chrome's Triple Crown quest with his bold predictions of victory and his talk of representing the little guy in a sport full of blue bloods.
