ELLIOTT'S ISLAND - The chief of the Nause-Waiwash Band of Indian People Inc. starts his days in pre-dawn darkness, stepping from his three-bedroom bungalow in this Eastern Shore village to putter through chores. This morning, Sewell "Winterhawk" Fitzhugh plants a handful of asparagus in his sandy garden and scatters feed for a dozen chickens. He checks the mesh across the wire pen, security against roving eagles that might wish to make snacks of their domesticated cousins. Then he walks into the space in the yard he has created for prayer, a circle perhaps 20 feet across, staked out by spindly cedar saplings decorated with colorful strips of fabric.

If Tuesday's luncheon at the Sheppard Pratt Conference Center had been a boxing match, it would have been over in the first five minutes, because the speaker, Steve Fitzhugh, had his audience won over in about that much time. And this was no tomato-can opponent that Fitzhugh, a former Denver Broncos and Cleveland Browns linebacker, was up against, but rather the toughest group a speaker can face, namely a roomful of teenagers and more to the point, a group of student-athletes from area private and religious schools.

The 75th Maryland Open came down to a pair of seven-foot birdie putts from below the cup on the 18th green at Old South Country Club in Lothian yesterday. Steve Madsen watched as Woody FitzHugh's bid slid by on the right side, then put his ball right in the heart of the cup.The birdie-four at the 533-yard closing hole gave Madsen a round of par 72, and a 54-hole championship total of 215. FitzHugh, who had carried a four-shot lead into the final round, ended with 77216.Of the critical putts, Madsen, head professional at Lakewood Country Club, said, "I thought Woody would make his, and then I thought I had left mine short."

Woody FitzHugh, one of the best Middle Atlantic PGA players during the 1980's, flashed some of his old form for the second straight day, as he built a four-stroke lead with rounds of 69-70139 in the 75th annual Maryland Open at Old South Country Club in Lothian yesterday.None of the first eight players in Monday's opening round, was able to improve, a factor which resulted in a seven-stroke gap. First-round leader Steve Madsen from Lakewood Country Club, slipped back with a 75 to stand at 143, followed by Craig Gunn, Danville, Va., 71-73144; low amateur Pat Tallent, Congressional CC, 72-73145; and 1993 champion Glen Barrett, Glenn Dale GC, 72-73145.

VIENNA -- For Mayor Russell Brinsfield and Chief Sewell Fitzhugh, the event yesterday was more than a celebration of the history of this little village along the Nanticoke River. If things go as the pair plans, the daylong commemoration of Capt. John Smith's 1,500-mile trek around the bay in 1608 could be a first step toward making Vienna a tourist stop along the National Park Service's first water trail. "We're looking for ways to make the town a destination," Brinsfield said. "We don't want our town turning into some huge tourist thing, but we're testing the waters to see what's possible in terms of some sort of historical and environmental center, something that would include a Native American heritage center.

Warren Wiggins, the Baltimore runner who pledged to raise money to fix up Mount Auburn Cemetery by running across the country, has temporarily cut his trip short. After three days of running east from Los Angeles, Wiggins said mechanical problems afflicted the motor home he needed to sleep and cook in. So he decided to come home. "We are not abandoning the effort. We are still trying to pull it through," Wiggins said. He hopes to sell the current motor home and buy a newer, used one. If all goes well, the 49-year-old former science teacher might be out on the road next month.

For more than 20 years, Warren Wiggins has pushed a lawn mower over his mother's grave at Mount Auburn Cemetery, carefully tending that patch of ground while all around the grass grew knee-deep and headstones stood crooked and broken. Over the years, others decried the deplorable condition of Mount Auburn, believed to be the oldest African-American cemetery in Baltimore and the resting place of many renowned blacks. But with the exception of some regular volunteer cleanups, nothing much has improved.

He is the oldest American player ever to make a U.S. Ryder Cup team on his own merit, and one of the more unlikely ever to play in the history of the event. Then again, how many professional golfers have ever followed the same script as Fred Funk? As part of a 12-man team that will try to regain the Cup from Europe when the biennial competition begins tomorrow at Oakland Hills outside Detroit, Funk, 48, has accomplished great feats despite starting late, hitting short and winning only a handful of times in a 16-year PGA Tour career.
