Every day brings the relentless drumbeat of pressure. To move faster. To pull off another miracle. "I feel like I have no control over my life," says David Duvall. "Sometimes I feel like it's so intense I can't stand it." He must be a world-famous brain surgeon. No. Gotta be the commander of some counterterrorism SWAT team. Not quite. David Duvall is a professional bicycle messenger, and perhaps the best Baltimore has seen. "He's like a Greek god," says Gary Boukis, owner of Magic Messenger, the company where Duvall -- 6-foot-5, 205 pounds, with the physique of an Olympic decathlon champion -- has spent 16 years delivering rush packages.

PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. -- David Duval is still looking for his first win on the PGA Tour.Duval tied the course record with a 62 Saturday to earn the third-round lead at the Pebble Beach National Pro-Am, but he couldn't back it up yesterday. He had a 1-under 71 and needed to finish strong with birdies on the last two holes to get a share of second place with Tiger Woods.Duval was victimized by his own weak iron play, as he spent the day getting up and down and saving par."I'm disappointed with how I played today, but I'm proud of myself for chipping and putting it close," Duval said.

POTOMAC - Come Sunday night, Rich Beem hopes to party here like it's 1999. It might be a little more sedate affair, given that Beem is now married and the father of an 11-month-old son. It might also not be as significant a victory as it was when Beem won the Kemper Insurance Open as a rookie, given that he has a win at the 2002 PGA Championship on his resume. But given the way Beem has struggled this season, winning this week's $4.8 million Booz Allen Classic at the Tournament Players Club at Avenel would be a rather large step in the right direction.

FARMINGDALE, N.Y. - He hasn't won the 102nd U.S. Open just yet, though there was a sense of inevitability following Tiger Woods throughout his opening round yesterday on the Black Course at Bethpage State Park. His score of 3-under-par 67 had given Woods a one-stroke lead over Sergio Garcia, though with the exception of the 22-year-old Spaniard and Phil Mickelson down the leaderboard a few notches at even-par 70, there didn't seem to be many others in the hunt with major championship mettle.

AUGUSTA, Ga. -- Tigermania has quieted, almost to a whisper. Greg Norman is an afterthought, three years and one major shoulder operation removed from the most heartbreaking of his many defeats here at Augusta National.Having recently passed Woods as the No. 1 player in the world rankings, David Duval will be looking to do something he has yet to accomplish in a remarkable streak that has now produced 11 victories in his past 34 tournaments.In going for his third victory in as many weeks, Duval will try to win his first major championship when play begins tomorrow in the 63rd Masters.

SUTTON COLDFIELD, England - The unwritten Ryder Cup rules for both teams are simple, really, just a matter of counting. Ready? You start at eight and if the United States gets to 14 first, it's over. A three-day marathon that has turned into a sprint, that's what the Ryder Cup has become, with nothing left today but 12 matches worth 12 points and equal chances for glory or gloom at the Belfry. For the first time since the 1991 Ryder Cup at Kiawah Island, S.C., the U.S. team and Europe start the final day in a tie. How that happened was either heartbreaking or lucky, depending on your point of view, because the 8-8 tie after yesterday wouldn't have occurred if not for a heavy dose of the unexpected.

AUGUSTA, Ga. - The ghosts that have followed David Duval here the past three years at the Masters might be lurking somewhere behind the azaleas or hiding amid the pines. Whether they come out this weekend depends greatly on whether Duval stays in the hunt. Despite a recent wrist injury to compound problems both on and off the course earlier in the year, Duval showed no signs yesterday of doing anything different this year at Augusta National. A 6-under-par 66 - Duval's best round ever at a Masters - was punctuated with a birdie on the final hole.

PINEHURST N.C.-- Years from now, perhaps when the U.S. Open returns to Pinehurst No. 2, they will talk about what happened this week in the same way they talk about what happened at Winged Foot a quarter-century ago.With one significant difference: the players will speak of reverence for this hallowed course rather than revile the way the USGA tricked up Winged Foot back when Hale Irwin won at 7-over par.They also might recall something else -- the first...

SANDWICH, England - David Duval is back, at least geographically. So, yeah, it has been quite a dry spell the past two years, since Duval stood up to the weighty challenge at Royal Lytham and won the 2001 British Open with characteristic cool, a 65 on Saturday followed by a 67 on Sunday. He hasn't won since and has come close only once. But now Duval has returned to the continent where he experienced his greatest victory, looking for something good once again, this time at the first British Open in 10 years at Royal St. George's.

DULUTH, Ga. - Their friendship was forged a couple of years ago, shortly after Tiger Woods recaptured the ranking as the world's best player from David Duval. They have spent time fishing together and playing golf together before last year's British Open at St. Andrews. They even flew home together after playing against each other in the final round with Woods celebrating his victory there while consoling Duval on his back-nine collapse at the Old Course. Back then, it seemed as if the camaraderie between them had overshadowed their competition.

LYTHAM ST. ANNES, England - Somewhere between his first tee shot and last putt yesterday at Royal Lytham and St. Annes, David Duval was struck by lightning on a perfectly sunny afternoon. It was strictly in a figurative sense, and it might have helped Duval win the first major championship of his star-crossed career. That it came during the final round of the 130th British Open made it all the better. "I think as much as anything, I realize that maybe even more so than Augusta in the past, you know what?

PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. -- It may be Tiger Woods' world, but it's Mark O'Meara's tournament.With the Pacific Ocean on his left and an adoring grandstand on his right, Woods came up a stroke short in the Pebble Beach National Pro-Am yesterday. O'Meara won for a record fifth time, and in a touchy-feely, we're-such-good-friends celebrity event, the unassuming veteran and the dynasty-to-be really are buddies.Five years ago, after a junior tournament in Florida, Woods' father, Earl, phoned O'Meara and asked whether they could get in 18 holes together.

LYTHAM ST. ANNES, England - David Duval has spent the better part of the past two years pursuing Tiger Woods and the better part of his eight-year career chasing an elusive first major championship. After what happened here yesterday at Royal Lytham and St. Annes in the third round of the 130th British Open, their roles are reversed and Duval finds himself again on the brink of achieving his goal. With a 6-under-par 65 that was completed by early afternoon, Duval climbed rapidly into contention.

AUGUSTA, Ga. - David Duval looked out at a room filled with reporters after the last round of the Masters yesterday. "Been here before," he said with a sigh. Close, in other words. So close to winning his first major title, yet frustrated again in the end. After Duval's session, Phil Mickelson replaced him in the chair. Same song, second verse. "I don't know what words to say," he said. "It's very disappointing." Duval and Mickelson chased Tiger Woods to the last hole at Augusta National, putting up scores that would have obliterated the field and earned a green jacket in almost any other year.
