IT WASN'T HARD to identify with Jason Gore, the walking human interest story who stepped to the first tee at Pinehurst yesterday with a chance to deliver one of the great long-shot victories in the history of the U.S. Open. It was even easier to identify with him a few hours later, when he double-bogeyed the 18th hole to finish with a final round of 84 ... a mile or so behind New Zealand's Michael Campbell, who actually did deliver one of the great long-shot victories in Open history. Gore was the guy with the perpetual smile who found himself in the highly unlikely position of being paired with defending champion and three-round leader Retief Goosen in the last group yesterday.

Glen Barrett, head professional at Glenn Dale Golf Club, knocked three strokes off par in his final three holes and vaulted into the lead after two rounds of the 73rd annual Maryland Open tournament at Crofton Country Club yesterday.The 3-under-par 69 left him at 140, three strokes ahead of his closest pursuer heading into this morning's final round. Webb Heintzelman had the day's low round, a 68, and moved into second at 143.Amateur Del Ponchock, the defending champion, and Buddy Sass each shot 70 and were at 144, followed by first-day leader John McNaney, 145.With the field cut to the low 40 and ties, 49 players at 153 will play today, with starting times between 7:30 and 10:34 a.m.Barrett called his round the opposite of his opening 71 when he reached nine greens in regulation and got up-and-down from all over.

Farmingdale, N.Y. - -Could there have been a more enticing preview for what will come today? Did NBC have a hand in this? Moments before darkness closed the curtains Sunday at the 109th U.S. Open, Tiger Woods crept onto the first page of the leader board. Meanwhile, Ricky Barnes, seemingly in position to win his first anything since 2002, took on the gait of a man who couldn't swallow. Was a golf ball lodged in his throat? Barnes bogeyed the first hole of his final round and snap-hooked his drive on the second.

CASTLE ROCK, Colo. -- Ian Baker-Finch appears all but certain of reaching the final round of The International -- if the weather allows the final round to be reached.For the second time in as many days, thunderstorms yesterday caused an overnight delay in play.Seventy-two men -- including PGA champion John Daly -- still were on the course when darkness fell on the Castle Pines Golf Club and extended second-round play into today. They were scheduled to return at 7 a.m. to complete the second round -- complete with the probable playoff for the final few qualifying spots -- before third-round play later in the day.That timetable, of course, is subject to change by the weather.

Warren Guernsey of Cobleskill, N.Y., has been bowling well enough lately to consider returning to the Professional Bowlers Association Tour full time. His performance yesterday in the Lipton Brisk PBA East Coast Tournament did nothing to change that notion. Guernsey, 28, finished plus-359 in eight games at Shake and Bake Bowl in West Baltimore to lead the tournament and qualify for today's finals. Eleven others in the 78-man field, including Danny Wiseman of Baltimore and Tim Criss of Bel Air, also advanced.

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.

HAGERSTOWN -- Jack Skilling, whose history of poor first-round scores usually had eliminated him from title contention, came into this year's Maryland Open determined to have a good first round, then get into position to be a contender the second day.After meeting those two goals with rounds of 70 and 67 for 3-under-par 137, Skilling, head professional at the White Flint Golf Center in Rockville, finds himself in an unfamiliar Open position as the leader...

SOUTHAMPTON, N.Y. - Two years ago, Fred Funk played the final round of the PGA Championship with Tiger Woods, pumping his fists and making enough shots to stay in contention until the back nine before finishing tied for fourth. It was Funk's best finish ever in a major. The former Maryland golf coach hoped to improve on that performance going into the final round of the 104th U.S. Open at Shinnecock Hills Golf Club. After starting the round three shots behind Retief Goosen, a string of early bogeys and a disheartening double bogey took Funk out of contention quickly.

MITCHELLVILLE -- As children, most are taught to be good hosts, but with the 83rd Maryland Open being played at the Country Club at Woodmore, host professional David Long is taking full advantage of his guests. After yesterday's second round, Long sits tied with Fair Oaks Golf Park professional Bill Rislove at 2-under par 140. "There's certain course knowledge that definitely helps out here," Long said, "but for the most part, everything's right in front of you. ... Getting to see these greens day in and day out helps, no doubt about it."

Keith Unikel, a University of Maryland junior, came from five shots back with a closing 4-under-par 68, lifting him to a 54-hole total of 217 and a one-stroke victory in the 77th annual Maryland Open at Crofton Country Club yesterday.The winner had opened 75-74 and finished about an hour ahead of the last groups. Down the stretch, Mark Evenson and second-round leader Dennis Winters had their chances, but could not get the one birdie that would have given either, or both, a share of the lead.
