OAKMONT, Pa.-- --It's not so bad playing in the shadow. Jim Furyk grew up not far from here, had family and friends sprinkled in the gallery yesterday and had already won the U.S. Open once before. But he wasn't the one they were all here to see, and he wasn't the reason the gallery and media contingent following his playing group topped even that of Tiger Woods. There was a single hole that seemed to quaintly illustrate the differences between the stoic Furyk and affable Phil Mickelson.

It has been a rough August on golf's rules and procedures front. For the third time this month, a harsh penalty has come down for a fairly innocuous mistake. Jim Furyk was booted from this week's opening FedEx Cup playoff event after missing Wednesday's pro-am tee time. A low cell phone battery caused the device's alarm to malfunction. "I'm beside myself," Furyk told a PGA Tour liaison, "but I have a way of climbing into stupid situations. " He's not alone. The dust hasn't completely settled from Dustin Johnson's two-stroke penalty at the PGA Championship for grounding his club in a bunker at No. 18, and Juli Inkster was disqualified from last week's LPGA stop for keeping loose mid-round by swinging a club with a weighted donut attached.

PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. -- You've seen the commercial. As Johnny Miller makes like John Madden with a telestrator, a golf conglomerate pitches its clubs and pokes fun at Jim Furyk's unorthodox swing.Isn't Furyk offended?"Look, I did the commercial with them," Furyk said. "Calloway approached me tenderly. They were afraid I'd be opposed, but I've always viewed my swing as being very much a part of me. I've gotten a lot of air time out of it."Furyk is going to get a lot more this weekend if he continues his hot hand in the Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.

Jim Furyk finally won after 32 months and 58 tournaments, and it became a footnote Sunday. When he reached the 18th green after a wild detour through the trees at Innisbrook, at Palm Harbor, Fla., two television networks broadcast the first interview with Tiger Woods since revelations he had been cheating on his wife. Furyk wasn't aware of this until after he won the Transitions Championship. One of Woods' closest friends on the PGA Tour, he walked into the interview room holding a three-page transcript of Woods' interviews with ESPN and the Golf Channel.

OAKMONT, Pa. -- Tiger Woods missed a right-to-left putt yesterday that would have forced a playoff at Oakmont Country Club, and the 107th U.S. Open unofficially became The International Open of America. Angel Cabrera of Argentina waddled off with the championship by shooting 1-under-par 69 and finishing at 5-over 285. That was enough, on a humid day and a treacherous track, to hold off Woods and Jim Furyk, who ended up one shot back at 286. Niclas Fasth finished fourth at 287, and David Toms and Bubba Watson finished four shots back at 289. Cabrera joins a U.S. Open winners line behind Geoff Ogilvy (Australia, 2006)

OLYMPIA FIELDS, Ill. - Is this the U.S. Open or the FBR Capital Open? Is this Olympia Fields or Strawberry Fields? After two rounds of the 103rd Open - U.S., not FBR - nothing seems real here, either. And there's nothing to worry about, even if your ball finds the junk. How else do you explain Jim Furyk setting a 36-hole scoring record for the Open with a 7-under-par 133 after shooting a bogey-free, 4-under 66 yesterday. Or Vijay Singh tying Furyk for the lead after making a run at breaking a major-championship scoring record before finishing tied for the mark with a 7-under 63. Furyk and Singh lead by two strokes over Stephen Leaney and Jonathan Byrd.

ROCHESTER, N.Y. - Four years ago, Tiger Woods came to the PGA Championship at Medinah outside Chicago in the midst of a major championship drought. He had been supplanted by David Duval as the world's top-ranked player. There were even questions as to whether Woods would regain the PGA Tour Player of the Year award that Duval had won the previous year. Woods answered those questions with a one-shot victory. The debate about who was the PGA Tour's top player was as short-lived as Gigli.

AKRON, Ohio - The moral of this story is that if you're going to wait for Tiger Woods to beat himself, you're going to wait an awfully long time and eventually, you're going to lose. Jim Furyk learned that lesson yesterday when he dropped a seven-hole sudden-death playoff to Woods in the NEC Invitational at Firestone Country Club. Furyk went eyeball-to-eyeball with the world's best player for 25 holes, outplayed him tee to green in the playoff and even threw a miracle bunker shot at him on the 72nd hole.

Ballesteros stable after brain tumor surgery golf Seve Ballesteros was in stable condition yesterday in Madrid, Spain, after the golf great, 51, had surgery on a brain tumor a day earlier. La Paz hospital said there were no complications from the surgery. Spanish state news agency Efe reported the operation lasted 12 hours. The hospital said a sizable part of the Spaniard's tumor was removed. It was not immediately known whether it was malignant, and it would be several days before the results were announced.

MAMARONECK, N.Y. -- Winged Foot stomped on the best players in the world yesterday. The No. 1 player, Tiger Woods, acutely felt the pain. He hobbled off with a footprint on his neck. But the difficulty, of course, might prove to be a blessing for Woods. On a day when he went high at the U.S. Open, nobody else went really low. Colin Montgomerie was the only player to break par, taking the first-round lead with a 1-under-par 69. The conditions, though, helped jam the leader board. There are 27 players within three shots of the lead, including Phil Mickelson, Jim Furyk and three others at 70 and Vijay Singh among eight at 71. Woods, meanwhile, looked shaky in his first tournament since the Masters, shooting a 76. But with the way Winged Foot is playing, it would be a mistake to count him out. "I was hoping to get back to 4-over," Woods said.

FORT WORTH, Texas -- There are three compelling reasons why Jim Furyk has not written a golf instruction book for amateurs - his grip, his swing and his putting approach. All are unconventional. But they work for Furyk, who heads into the Bank of America Colonial as the top-ranked player in the field in season earnings ($2,962,649), scoring average (69.46) and world ranking (fifth). "I wouldn't tell people to try to copy what I do," said Furyk, who overlaps two fingers on his grip, has a loop at the top of his swing and putts cross-handed.

...TC BETHESDA -- Tiger Woods isn't only the young American who covets a strong showing in his national tournament this week. As much as Paul Stankowski and Jim Furyk, among others, would love to break through and win their first major championship title, the week will be regarded as a success if they perform two tasks.Score some Ryder Cup points, and impress Tom Kite.The Ryder Cup is one of the more compelling subplots at this week's U.S. Open. The 1992 U.S. Open champion at Pebble Beach, Kite is the captain in charge of bringing the Ryder Cup back to the United States after 1995's loss to Europe.

Finding the perfect partner for Tiger Woods is often a predicament for those making the pairings in international team competitions. Jack Nicklaus is only the latest U.S captain to be left second-guessing himself. Or, perhaps, being second-guessed. Paired with Fred Couples, who has compiled one of the best records in the short history of the Presidents Cup, Woods' struggles as a team player continued during yesterday's opening foursome matches at the Robert Trent Jones Golf Club. A resounding, 4-and-3 defeat for Woods and Couples by two-time U.S. Open champion Retief Goosen of South Africa and Adam Scott of Australia in the opening match led to an overall, 3 1/2 -2 1/2 deficit after the first day of the four-day event.

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.
