MAMARONECK, N.Y. -- He might have left Stanford after two years, but the education of Tiger Woods continues. Woods keeps learning that playing in the other majors isn't as easy as it was at Augusta National in this year's Masters.It happened in June at Congressional, where Woods wrecked his chances in the U.S. Open with three double bogeys. It happened last month at Royal Troon, where Woods shot himself out of contention with two triples and a quad.And it has happened here at Winged Foot during the 79th PGA Championship.

ST. ANDREWS, Scotland — A month ago at Pebble Beach, Phil Mickelson did the nearly unthinkable when he played the first round of the U.S. Open without a birdie. On Thursday, it almost happened again. Despite benign conditions that didn't worsen until after he made the turn at the Old Course, Mickelson couldn't get a birdie putt to fall until the final hole of a 1-over-par 73. That left him trailing 96 other golfers, in a fight to make the cut with worse weather on the way. "I fought hard today," Mickelson told ESPN in his only interview.

WILMINGTON, Del. - Entering the 10th tee at DuPont Country Club yesterday, Nancy Scranton was cruising. Starting the final round of the McDonald's LPGA Championship two shots behind co-leaders Juli Inkster and Wendy Ward, Scranton had two birdies on the first nine to put her in a tie for the lead with Inkster. But then the wheels fell off in a hurry. Par putts on the 10th and 11th kept her tied for the lead, but on the par-4 12th, Scranton's drive was well left, forcing her to punch back to the fairway.

PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. — Dustin Johnson was informed late Saturday that, going back to 1975, more than half the players holding a 54-hole lead at a PGA Tour event had failed to close out the victory. Why would that be? "I've got no idea," Johnson said. He does now. Johnson imploded early Sunday, setting the tone for a day at Pebble Beach that will be remembered for producing carnage from top players rather than the first European-born U.S. Open champion in 40 years.

Joe Wood, a solid amateur player from Norbeck Country Club, produced three birdies over a seven-hole span in the middle of his round and finished 36-3470 to win a Middle Atlantic PGA pro-am at Rolling Road Golf Club yesterday. In the process, he defeated 60 pros in the 240-man field.Eight pros shot 1-over-par 71, including Dean Wilson of the Elkridge Club; Mark Spolarich, Eisenhower GC; and Jim Kardash, Glen Burnie Family Golf Center. All eight, who could have easily pointed to missed opportunities that cost an outright victory, earned places in the season-ending Tournament of Champions.

Bethesda -- Now that Phil Mickelson has missed the cut in his second straight tournament, maybe Tiger Woods can find a job for his suddenly friendly rival for the weekend in the AT&T National at Congressional Country Club. After shooting a 3-over-par 73 for a two-round total of 7-over 147, Mickelson sounded as if he'd like a job working in public relations. "This has been a fun few days for our family," said Mickelson, who also missed the cut in last month's U.S. Open at Oakmont. "I love the fact that we have a tournament here being hosted by Tiger and [that]

Jairo Irreno Jr. of Potomac caught Tim Elliott on the front nine, then held him off down the stretch yesterday to win the annual Amateur at International tournament in Fairfax, Va. The outcome ended a streak of five consecutive titles by Kirk Lombardi of Montgomery Village G&CC, who finished sixth. Irreno, from TPC-Avenel and a sophomore at James Madison University, finished with a par 71 for a 54-hole total of 214. Elliott, from Glen Arm and Pine Ridge GC, ended with 74 and 215. Chris Baloga, from Baltimore and Mount Pleasant GC, recovered from an opening 78 to shoot 71-69 and wind up in third place at 218. His 69, which included four birdies and a double bogey, earned a share of the day's low round.

AN ORIOLE batter singles to right field. He tries to steal second, but is thrown out. The next batter hits a home run. The radio announcer remarks that if the first batter had not been caught stealing, the Orioles would have two runs instead of just one. A professional golfer shoots a double bogey on the second hole on the final day of a tournament. He goes on to lose the match by just one stroke. The next day, a columnist writes that, were it not for that early double bogey, he would have won the match.

The 84th Maryland Open Championship went to a sudden-death playoff yesterday, but a sudden phone call decided the winner. While pros Gary Mankulish and Wayne DeFrancesco were on the course at Woodholme Country Club in Pikesville, headed to their second playoff hole, Maryland State Golf Association officials received word that Mankulish's membership in the Mid-Atlantic PGA had been suspended. Pros in the Maryland Open are required to be MAPGA members in good standing, so Mankulish was disqualified, and DeFrancesco, playing on his home course, was declared winner of his third Maryland Open title.

On a shocking and stirring day at the 138th British Open, two of the least-frequently asked questions in the English language loomed over Turnberry and competed for primacy. Would Tiger Woods really miss the cut? And: Could a 59-year-old actually win this thing? After the overwhelming favorite thrashed through a six-hole thud so profound he looked like some other and far more deeply flawed human, the first question found an even rarer answer. Yes. And as Tom Watson righted a foundering round with four birdies in the last 10 holes, a 60-foot monster putt on No. 16 and a 60-footer from the fringe on No. 18 that loosed a proper roar, the second question found a curious answer.

FARMINGDALE, N.Y. - -The secret to a successful golf swing, Ben Hogan believed, is in the dirt. The secret to success in the first round of the U.S. Open this year? Avoiding the dirt. Or, more accurately, the mud. "Look," Mike Weir said, "I'm wearing white shoes. They're hardly dirty at all." It helped that Weir spent the round walking on clouds, firing a 6-under-par 64. Also key was that Weir teed off Friday in the afternoon wave. By then, Mother Nature (finally) had taken mercy on Bethpage Black after soaking her so thoroughly, Boo Weekley joked that the frogs sought shelter.

With two of the sport's biggest names in contention going into yesterday's third round of the McDonald's LPGA Championship, you would figure that either Lorena Ochoa or Annika Sorenstam would somehow find her way to the top of the leader board at Bulle Rock in Havre de Grace. Ochoa and Sorenstam remain in contention, but they have some catching up to do. Jee Young Lee, 22, a South Korean with a string of top-10 finishes in major championships, followed a 7-under-par 65 by Maria Hjorth of Sweden with one of her own to reach 12-under 204 and take a one-stroke lead over Hjorth going into today's final round.

RANCHO MIRAGE, Calif. -- Since when does a victorious Sunday charge amount to a modest round of 3-under 69? And is it a full-scale retreat when you've got a three-shot lead with four holes to go and promptly fire up a bogey, a double bogey and a bogey? The answers were yes for Morgan Pressel, who at 18 became the youngest winner in the history of LPGA major championship competition; and yes for Suzann Pettersen, whose quest for victory at the Kraft Nabisco Championship veered erratically at the worst possible time.

SPRINGFIELD, N.J. - Tiger Woods has found a way to overshadow Phil Mickelson for most of their careers, typically by winning major championships or making funnier TV commercials. Yesterday, Woods managed to steal some of the spotlight that came with Mickelson being the second-round leader of the 87th PGA Championship at Baltusrol Golf Club. Woods did it in a most unusual way. He nearly missed the cut. Hours after Mickelson finished an impressive round of 5-under-par 65 that helped him move into sole possession of the lead, Woods chased the projected cut line as if he were trying to win the tournament.

Bob Lentz shot 67, the only sub-par round among 147 starters, and took a four-stroke lead halfway through the annual Fall Publinx championship at Mount Pleasant Golf Course yesterday. Jim Hickey followed with 71, the first par round of his career. Ross Ellberg included four birdies in a scrambling round of 72, trailed by Drew Forrester (73), Chris Baloga (73) and defending champion Charlie Narciso (73). Lentz, who had opened with an 82 last year, was superb with his bogey-free tour of the 6,400-yard, par-71 course this time.

Followed by a gallery of 20, professional golfers Wayne DeFrancesco of Columbia and Gary Mankulish of Rockville took the lead after the second round in the 84th Maryland Open Championship yesterday at Woodholme Country Club in Pikesville. DeFrancesco, a teaching professional at Woodholme, finished the day with 70 on the par-71 course to bring his total coming into today's final round to 141. He birdied the ninth hole but otherwise shot par with a strong short game. DeFrancesco, who won the event in 1994 and 1995 and tied for fifth last year, was tied for third after the first round.
