Water still draws Amy Alcott. The LPGA Hall of Famer, famous for sparking a women's golf tradition by jumping into a greenside lake after winning the Nabisco Dinah Shore tournament, is often found churning laps at Southern California swimming pools. "I'm not a good swimmer," Alcott, 55, says, "but I enjoy being in the water and exercising. " Nor has the winner of five major championships and 24 other LPGA Tour events ruled out another leap into a lake. On April 2, in conjunction with the Kraft Nabisco Championship in Rancho Mirage, Calif., she'll host the inaugural Fresh & Easy Dinah Shore Charity Pro-Am, featuring legends such as her, Nancy Lopez, Pat Bradley and Patty Sheehan.

DURHAM, N.C. -- If there is any doubt that Jenny Chuasiriporn wants to be just another student here at Duke, consider where she spent many of her nights prior to the basketball team's showdown in January against North Carolina.She was in Tent No. 83, a 7-iron away from Cameron Indoor Stadium, waiting in line for a ticket like everyone else."Being at Duke is such a perfect environment for me," Chuasiriporn said as she sat outside the tent on a spring-like afternoon, the start of practice still a week away.

DINAH, IS THERE anyone fin-ah? Talk about fine! In honor of Sister Kathleen Feeley, president of the College of Notre Dame of Maryland for the past 20 years who's retiring in June of '92, one of America's best known entertainers, Dinah Shore, will present an evening of musical tribute at the Meyerhoff. All the arrangements for this mighty fine fete, slated for Nov. 23, are being made by the always fine Margaret McManus, wife of ABC sportscaster Jim McKay. The event's likely to be a sellout so call early for reservations, 783-8000.

With her honey blond hair, cheery songs and good-night kiss for the cameras, Dinah Shore embodied the optimism of 1950s' America like no other television star of her era. She was the small screen's version of Doris Day, the woman as girl next door. And she kept bringing us the sunshine into the '90s.Television lost one of its brightest stars yesterday when Ms. Shore died in her Beverly Hills, Calif., home after a short bout with cancer, just five days before her 77th birthday. By her side were her ex-husband, George Montgomery, and her two children, Melissa Ann Hime and John David Montgomery.

Television is changing our notion of entertainment in strange ways.A few weeks ago, Michael Landon went on the "Tonight" show to talk about his impending death. (He died of cancer July 1). And his performance was -- literally -- reviewed in some publications.Tonight at 8 on the The Nashville Network (TNN), Burt Reynolds and Dinah Shore, former lovers, sit down in front of the cameras for 90 minutes during which they mainly discuss their famous love affair of yesterday.A terminal illness and a love affair are pretty private stuff.

PONTE VEDRA, Fla. -- Before he teed off yesterday in the third round of the $1.8 million Players Championship, Nick Faldo took a look at the leader board.It showed Fred Couples with a course-record, 9-under-par 63 on the TPC at Sawgrass and cozily positioned among the leaders in the tournament billed as the annual championship of golf's touring pros."The man's so hot he must be wearing asbestos shorts," the laconic Englishman said of Couples, whose recent run has taken him to the top of world golf.

People waited in line, anxious to talk to Dinah Shore. They wanted her to sign her new cookbook for their daughters or nieces who have modeled themselves after Dinah. Some of them brought gifts for Dinah -- a can of Old Bay seasoning, a recipe for Milky Way cake. Two of them, upset over the treatment of chickens, presented her with save-the-chickens literature.But mostly what people told Dinah, whose biography lists her as somewhere between 69 and 74 years old, was that she looked great and that they respect her.For two hours on a gray Thursday afternoon Dinah sat in the middle of the Kitchen Bazaar store in the Towson Town Center signing cookbooks and meeting her fans.

Success hasn't changed Ted Sheftic, and he is the first to say that he genuinely enjoys teaching and providing services for the members of Hanover (Pa.) Country Club, something he has done as head golf professional for the past 25 years.A number of Baltimore area golfers have taken lessons from Sheftic over the years, usually with notable improvement, but the pro's stock took a dramatic leap upward earlier this spring when one of his students, LPGA Tour player Nanci Bowen, captured the Nabisco Dinah Shore tournament.
