Hale Irwin and Gary Player, two of the most accomplished men in the history of golf, were added to the field for the 2005 Constellation Energy Classic yesterday. The Champions Tour event will be played Sept. 16-18 at Hayfields Country Club in Hunt Valley. One of five players to win the U.S. Open as many as three times, Irwin, 60, has been the most dominant figure on the 50-and-over circuit. He has 42 wins on the Champions Tour, where no one else has 30; two have come this year. Wayne Levi held off a late Irwin charge in the 2004 Constellation Energy Classic.

K.J. Choi banished three long years of losing with one outstanding, four-hole stretch in the Chrysler Classic of Greensboro yesterday. The South Korean star birdied the first holes in the final round, giving him all the cushion he needed in a two-shot victory over Shigeki Maruyama. It was Choi's first PGA Tour victory since 2002, when he won two tournaments during a breakthrough season. He finished with a 6-under-par 66 yesterday for a 22-under 266 total, one stroke short of Jesper Parnevik's tournament record, set in 1999.

Senior PGA Tour officials will have a close eye (and ear) on the scene when the inaugural Toyota Invitational, a $200,000 tournament featuring 21 tour members, spends the next two days at Cattail Creek Country Club in western Howard County.The event is a trial balloon looking toward the possibility of gaining a regular spot on future Senior Tour calendars. Although there are variables that go into making a presentation for a possible tour event, there is no set list of criteria, according to Tim Crosby, a Senior Tour vice president for sponsor relations.

Bruce Summerhays, still on the crest of the wave that carried him to his first Senior PGA Tour victory Sunday, tied the course record with a 6-under-par 34-3266, and opened a three-stroke lead on the rest of the field after the first round of the Toyota Invitational tournament at Cattail Creek Country Club yesterday.With 21 Senior pros headlining a two-day program that is seen as a forerunner of a possible full-field tour event, Hale Irwin, Larry Laoretti, John Jacobs and Jim Dent are tied after shooting 69s on the 6,624-yard, par-72 course in western Howard County.

LAKE MANASSAS, Va. -- There was a little more nationalism and a lot more competition, a little more gamesmanship and a lot more drama yesterday at the Robert Trent Jones Golf Club.Though the Presidents Cup didn't quite come of age at the midpoint of this inaugural three-day event, it at least came to life. An early charge by the International team was answered later in the day by the Americans.After the International team climbed out of a gaping first-day hole to close a five-point deficit to two, the U.S. team won the last three alternate-shot matches in the afternoon to move ahead 12-8 going into today's head-to-head competition.
