CHASKA, Minn. - He had lost a share of the lead and, given his past formula for winning on the PGA Tour, a realistic chance at victory here at Hazeltine National Golf Club in the 84th PGA Championship. After a long day that followed a sleepless night, Fred Funk did not lose his humor or perspective. All he lost was a couple of strokes to par, and given the conditions yesterday, that wasn't so bad at all. It began early in the morning, when the former University of Maryland golf coach returned for the final five holes of a second round suspended by lightning Friday night.

Jordan McKelvin first fell in love with golf at age 2. She received a plastic set of golf clubs as a gift from her great-aunt, and she rarely put them down. By the time she turned 5, visits to the driving range with her dad became commonplace. She isn't playing with toy clubs any more. In just her second year of high school competition, McKelvin's skill has made the Westminster sophomore one of the state's best golfers. And her work in school and the community has achieved equally high marks.

Kevin Anderson was introduced Tuesday as Maryland's athletic director, saying it is his aim "to take the program from good to great" and vowing to build "cohesion" in a department that has had its share of personality conflicts. Appearing at Comcast Center, Anderson was handed a black baseball cap with "Terps" in red lettering by incoming university president Wallace Loh — the man who selected Anderson from among three finalists. "Well, today is a new day at the University of Maryland," Anderson, 55, the Army athletic director since 2004, said after placing the cap on his head.

Don't ever tell Jason Rodenhaver that you can't find a diamond in the rough. The University of Maryland women's golf coach knows better. He unearthed his jewel in the hills of Floyd County two years ago, when he basically stumbled upon Jessica Hollandsworth. "It was basically luck," Rodenhaver recalled. "It happened because I answered the phone one day. It's always been my theory -- always answer the phone because you never know." On the other end of the line was Floyd County High School assistant golf coach Bobby Clark, a former high school state champion who played at Clemson.

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.
