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.

The biggest winner in Northern Ireland's parade of major champions might turn out to be Royal Portrush. The scenic club overlooking the country's northern coast is getting a renewed look to bring back the British Open for the first time in more than 50 years. Meanwhile, there's new discussion about taking the Irish Open north as soon as 2013. Club officials said last week that Northern Ireland finance ministers have pledged the necessary financial support to lure the Irish Open, which has had eight host venues in the last 13 years.

Justin Rose played bogey-free Friday and shot the best score of the tournament, a 6-under 64, to build a one-shot lead over Jason Day and Charlie Wi at the AT&T National in Newton Square, Pa. The weekend will include defending champion Tiger Woods , but just barely. He had an even-par 70, making a routine par on his last hole to make the cut on the number. • Na Yeon Choi followed her opening 64 with a 4-under 67 to build a two-stroke lead over three golfers through the second round of the LPGA's Jamie Farr Owens Corning Classic in Sylvania, Ohio.

Tiger Woods ' miserable year ended with more disappointment as he gave up a four-stroke lead Sunday and suffered a playoff loss to Graeme McDowell in the Chevron World Challenge at Thousand Oaks, Calif. It marked the first time that Woods, without a win since the 2009 Australian Open, lost a tournament in which he led by at least three strokes going into the final round. Woods let his grip on the lead slip with a double bogey on the 13th that McDowell birdied for a two-stroke lead that he eventually gave away, leading to the extra hole at Sherwood Country Club.

Just how close did U.S. Open champion Graeme McDowell come to not even getting a tee time at Pebble Beach? Had Brian Gay , Scott Verplank or Michael Sim birdied his final hole at the Byron Nelson Championship, McDowell would have been knocked from the top 50 in the world rankings on the day those exemptions were given out. The Northern Ireland native had not entered sectional qualifying as a backup plan. "I really felt like if I didn't get in, it wasn't going to be the end of my summer," McDowell said.

The first shots of the 2011 PGA Tour season are scheduled to be struck Thursday afternoon. About an hour later, the LPGA finally will get around to unveiling its 2011 schedule. Though no one keeps such trivia, it might be the first time a higher-tier sports entity has kept its full calendar-year docket off the market until after New Year's Day. That's the nature of the challenge LPGA Commissioner Mike Whan was left to shovel out of. "The first thing you need to do when turning a business around is to stop the slide," Whan said at last year's season finale.

Tiger Woods is a lame-duck No. 1; Lee Westwood waits in the wings. Push number-crunching aside, though, and no golfer is hotter than Martin Kaymer. It turns out the PGA Championship was only a springboard for the 25-year-old German, who has yet to come away without hardware since that victorious playoff at Whistling Straits. After a three-week hiatus, he won the KLM Open in the Netherlands. Then he went 3-0-1 in helping Europe win back the Ryder Cup. Finally, a birdie-birdie finish captured last week's Dunhill Links at St.Andrews.

BETHESDA, Md. — The U.S. Open long has billed itself as the most democratic among golf's major championships. The big names get reserved spots, sure — though they share the practice range with up-and-comers, amateurs, club pros and maybe a hotshot teen. More than half the field, in fact, remains allocated to qualifiers. Egalitarianism rules, limited only by one's ability to survive 36-hole qualifying. It remains a noble approach, even if the bluebloods typically assert their superiority once the opening round commences.

Bubba Watson can't help himself. He knows only one way to answer questions, and that's to utter the first thing that pops into his head. After he completed a morning practice round Monday at Congressional Country Club, he was asked if he had enjoyed seeing anything particular on the golf course. "The clubhouse," he replied. "I'm gonna eat lunch. " Watson also didn't give the conventional answer to the question dogging American golfers: Why can't any of them win a major?

PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. — Lee Westwood didn't bother checking the World Golf Rankings on Monday. Having seen Martin Kaymer reach the WGC Match Play final, Westwood already was aware his reign at No. 1 was going to end. Besides, checking the list never was his habit. "I tend to look when I'm going up," he quipped. For years, golf fans didn't even have that kind of incentive. Tiger Woods was No. 1, and the question about the next guy wasn't so much "Who?" but "How far?"
