SWING DOCTOR. You hear the term all the time these days, particularly when it comes to professional golfers. Butch Harmon was the biggest name in the business when he was working with Tiger Woods, but when the two split up in 2002, Harmon's name fell out of the headlines. Kent Cayce and Chuck Turesco do the same thing that Harmon does - and they can do it for you. While they might not be able to help you become the No. 1 player in the world, their credentials are more than respectable and, better yet, you only have to drive to Laurel to benefit from their expertise.

Summer is now official. The calendar might not say so, but the weather's definitely warm enough, and that's what matters. To celebrate, my girlfriend, Amie, and I escaped the city Monday night for a round of mini-golf - the official sport of summer. We drove to Night Hawk Golf Center in Gambrills, which has batting cages, a driving range, arcade games, and, of course, mini-golf. Between the mini-golf and arcade games, an hour at Night Hawk was a fun, semi-lazy way to fill a weeknight.

By his own admission Frank J. Laber, 57, is on the back nine of his successful golf career. Although Laber is not competing or serving a golf club, he now offers a practical coaching approach - stressing the short game, from 30 yards in - at his own course, the Black Horse Golf learning center on Troyer Road in White Hall, which opened in 1999. "This is essential to those looking for lower scores, since shots at these short distances represent about 70 percent of the shots in a normal round of golf," Laber says.
