THOSE OF YOU out there of a certain vintage - say, the ones who understand that our daily Page 2 feature The Flip Side is a reference to turning over a record to play the less familiar song - may recall the days when various folks bore the title of The Fifth Beatle. Stuart Sutcliffe and Pete Best, one-time actual members of the band, have worn the moniker, as have producer George Martin, manager Brian Epstein and even New York disc jockey Murray the K. To get to sports, this weekend the PGA Tour begins its Southern Swing through Florida, and NBC, in partnership with USA Network, carries five consecutive tournaments.

MIAMI -- There is a reason the closing hole of the Blue Monster is so highly regarded. It chews up players and spits them out. The 18th hole -- rated the most difficult on the PGA Tour last year -- engulfs its conquerors with drama and demoralizes those who go down in defeat.Just ask Steve Elkington.He kicked a dent in the scorers' trailer yesterday after storming off the 18th green with a bogey that severely jeopardized his lead at the Doral-Ryder Open. Two hours later, after Ernie Els and Greg Kraft were added to the list of victims of the menacing finishing hole, Elkington was back, this time after notching his 10th career victory and earning a winner's check of $540,000.

True remark overheard yesterday morning from a 3-year-old, struggling to stay vertical on a South Baltimore street, to his mother: "Get me out of here!"And if he had a credit card he'd probably do what Baltimoreans are doing in droves: calling their travel agents and booking a trip south -- anywhere south, the farther the better.Or maybe a nice cruise."Cruises are up, because they're starting to be affordable now, they're competitive," said Jeannie Urban, a part-time agent and director of the cruise desk at Roeder Travel on York Road.
