Demarkis Cooper (Oxon Hill) was named the first recipient. UMES is one of 18 schools to offer a PGA-approved degree in golf management, but the only historically black university with the program. The foundation is the philanthropic arm of the Owings Mills club, which hosted the LPGA's International Crown in late July.

It's a gloriously sunny day in Miami, and I'm standing in a semicircle of maybe 500 people on a carpet of lush, sweet-smelling, green-glinting grass, the kind that makes you want to get naked and roll around on your back like a dog.But the people around me are not doing that. They're silent and solemn, like a church congregation, except that a lot of them are smoking cigars. They're staring intently at some tiny figures way off in the distance. I'm staring, too, but I can't quite make out what the figures are doing.

The senior standout closed out a fine four-year career with her second straight individual title at the Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland golf championships, leading the Reds to their fifth consecutive team crown last week at Fox Hollow Golf Course in Timonium. After taking a three-stroke lead with a 41 covering nine holes on Tuesday's first day, Golueke fired a one-over-par 37 on Wednesday for a two-day total of 78 to comfortably win by seven strokes. Golueke's long drives off the tee set up shorter shots with her irons as she had five consecutive pars at one point on the second day and finished her career with a birdie.

It all looked so familiar Sunday -- except when it didn't. There was Tiger Woods on the 18th green at the Arnold Palmer Invitational in Orlando. Same good-luck red shirt as always on the final day. Same enthusiastic -- even adoring -- crowds cheering his every move. Same look of grim determination on his face when he needed to concentrate. But when he sank his final putt for a 2-under-par 70 to officially win the tournament by five strokes over Graeme McDowell and end 30 months of no wins on the PGA Tour, we saw a different reaction from Tiger than we'd seen in the past.

Some athletes take to a sport after watching a memorable performance. Others simply are born to play it. Hall of Fame golfer Carol Mann's career path was set when she couldn't see her head in a mirror made for young ballerinas to study their movements. "I made my ballet debut at the Lyric Theatre [in Chicago], in a little-kids ballet," recalled Mann, who grew up in Rodgers Forge and lived there until her parents moved to Chicago after her freshman year at Notre Dame Prep. "That was my first experience of performing in the public.

There is no near-term downside to the Baltimore area enjoying a week at the center of the golf universe in late July. The inaugural LPGA International Crown, which will bring together 32 top women from eight countries for a new-concept team competition at Caves Valley Golf Club, is going to be a major event with significant global reach. And we're not even going to have to tear up any light rail tracks or turn downtown into a traffic nightmare to make it possible. There are no major infrastructure issues like the ones that made the Baltimore Grand Prix such a tough sell and there is nothing to boil the blood of local commuters and jilted business owners - just a classy showcase event at a classy location that will show off both Baltimore City and Baltimore County to millions of potential visitors worldwide.

"It's an incredible environment, a great fan base, and there are a lot of nerves involved. " No, ex-Ravens quarterback Trent Dilfer wasn't talking about a trip to Heinz Field or any of the stadiums he played in throughout his 11 year NFL career. Instead he was discussing the 25 th annual American Century Championship, a nationally televised celebrity golf tournament that Dilfer has competed in for the past decade.   While Dilfer and the other celebrities who descend on Reno-Tahoe each July may not be Tiger Woods -- although Dilfer is an excellent golfer and has seven top-10 finishes in the event -- the chance to play on a high quality course in front of a large gallery is tough to beat.

Every golf season, local women's golf groups play for an incredibly worthy cause, called Fairway to Life , which benefits the Breast Care Center at the University of Maryland Greenebaum Cancer Center. As a participant in the program and a co-chair of a local tournament a few years ago, I had the opportunity to meet and work with Marie Bowers , an extraordinary volunteer and resident in the Padonia Road area. Marie has been involved with Fairway To Life since 1999, a year after its inception and I know firsthand that she is an integral part of its annual success.

The Cavaliers' win ended a run of six-straight titles by Roland Park. An “unplayable” Fox Hollow Golf Course forced the IAAM to cancel the second day of play and use Monday's first round scores to determine the title winner. “What we saw was that the greens were unplayable,” Friends School athletic director Greg Whitley and IAAM golf commissioner said.
