What figures to be golf's most scrutinized new course could have its architect by the end of the week. The eight finalists for the 2016 Rio Olympics design project — a list that includes Jack Nicklaus , Greg Norman , Annika Sorenstam and Gary Player — wrapped up two days of presentations to organizers Wednesday in Brazil. From there, a selection committee will wrestle with the final choice. Rio 2016 will mark golf's return to the Olympics after a 112-year absence.

POTOMAC -- Maybe the all-out assault on par during the opening round of the Kemper Open yesterday should have been anticipated considering the way things went during Wednesday's pro-am.For openers, Joey Sindelar's 63 is the unofficial course record for Avenel. Russ Cochran equaled the old mark with his 64. And Jay Don Blake had a hole-in-one as he and his three amateur partners had a best-ball 47.How well did the field of 156 fare yesterday? A whopping 65 percent (102) had par or better, and, generally speaking, they faced fairly tough pin placements all day. There were a half-dozen nine-hole scores of 31.* One of the players who is in the five-way tie for second place at 66 is Neal Lancaster, who got married Saturday.

From: North Coast, Calif. Price: $15 Serve with: Salmon, ham, Asian cuisine This full-bodied, well-rounded sauvignon blanc stands out in an otherwise undistinguished line of California wines produced under the name of the legendary Australian golfer. This white wine displays floral aromas and vibrant flavors of figs, orange, lime, apricots, Asian spices and minerals. It lingers on the palate in a most satisfying way.

PONTE VEDRA, Fla. -- The TPC Stadium Course owes Bob Tway a debt that has gone uncollected for eight years. It was here in 1983 that Tway, playing in the PGA Tour Qualifying School, shot a final-day 81 after five impressive days of play to miss getting his tour card by one stroke.A victory at The Players Championship would certainly settle the score. Tway took the first step in that direction yesterday, when he shot a 7-under-par 65 to take the first-round lead.Tway has a lot of company in the par-busting set, though.

AUGUSTA, Ga. -- Paul Stankowski has the best game plan for overtaking Tiger Woods in today's final round of the 61st Masters."If I can make five, six, seven birdies tomorrow afternoon, like in the first three holes, I can definitely put some heat on him," a joking Stankowski said. He is 10 shots behind Woods.Then there was Costantino Rocca, who after a roller-coaster 2-under-par 70 finds himself at 6-under 210 and in second place -- nine shots behind Woods. "I think it's too far," Rocca said.

Hasn't won this year but has finished in the top 5 in his past 4 events.* Seve Ballesteros: Aside from Billy Andrade, he probably is the hottest golfer in the world. Has emerged from a slump to win 3 times in Europe and Japan during the past 2 months and finished fifth last week. Has to control tee shots to stay in the hunt.* Nick Faldo: The 2-time British Open and Masters champion came within a shot of a playoff last year with Irwin and Mike Donald.

NAPLES, Fla. -- Standing on the tee, ready to demonstrate an arsenal of shots, was one of the most talked-about names in the history of golf, although a stranger to the masses. Murray "Moe" Norman, somewhat anonymous and even mysterious, shouldn't need an introduction but he does. He grew up in Canada, still lives there and, except for rare appearances in this country, could be classified a missing person.A certain celebrity status, in absentia, has come to him and continues to build. When professionals on the tour enumerate the standout strikers of the golf ball they mention such deities as Bobby Jones, Byron Nelson, Ben Hogan.

JUPITER, Fla. -- Atop Greg Norman's dark wooden desk inside his Florida headquarters, where the walls display photos of the golfer with Presidents Bill Clinton and George H.W. Bush, sits a tall, red coffee mug with yellow lettering. "It's good to be king," the mug reads. Norman's ego has fully recovered from being shattered three times on the way to seemingly certain victory at Augusta National Golf Club, site of this week's Masters Tournament. Today, Norman the businessman is too busy to think much about Norman the golfer.
