FORT WORTH, Texas -- The hottest woman turned out to be the 1991 U.S. Women's Open champion, but it had nothing to do with the extreme temperatures or temperaments of the week.It had everything to do with how Meg Mallon kept putting herself in position to win her second women's major championship in three weeks yesterday at Colonial Country Club.Mallon, the 28-year-old LPGA sensation who hadn't won a tournament until this year, shot a 4-under-par 67 to finish at 1-under 283 and beat Pat Bradley by two shots.

TULSA, Okla. -- The question on most minds here yesterday wasn't whether Tiger Woods would win the 101st U.S. Open at Southern Hills for his fifth straight major championship. Everyone -- from the thousands of fans who ringed the fairway ropes to the folks at NBC who were just wringing their hands -- wanted to know whether the world's best player was even going to make the cut. "A lot of people were saying that if he didn't make the cut, it would be a ghost town over the weekend," Ted Robinson, an administrator for the federal government from Tulsa, said as he watched Woods on the 16th hole yesterday.

Through 15 holes of yesterday's final round of the Greater Baltimore Classic, eight golfers were within two strokes of the lead, then shared by eventual champion J.C. Snead and Rodger Davis. One by one, the would-be contenders faded coming in, some falling victim to the par-5 18th. Doug Tewell and Bobby Wadkins didn't necessarily fade -- Tewell shot 5-under-par 67 yesterday, Wadkins had a 66 -- but each would have hoped for a more fortuitous finish. Tewell walked up to the 18th green in a tie for the lead.

HAVRE DE GRACE -- Before one competition in the Jack Russell Terrier Association of America's National Trials yesterday, Megan Johnson stood in line in a yellow slicker, while 6 1/2 -month old Tac whimpered in her arms.Then it was Tac's turn to compete in Susquehanna State Park. With morning rain pelting down, the lithe little dog approached a man-made, 10-foot-long tunnel with an entrance hole about 8 inches wide. When judge Terry Grainger said the word, Megan, 13, unleashed Tac.Just 4.55 seconds later, he had wormed his way through to the other end, well within the one-minute limit, and barked at a caged rat at the hole's end for at least 30 seconds -- another requirement related to Jack Russells' original purpose of hunting burrowing animals.

BLOOMFIELD HILLS, Mich. -- Tiger Woods followed the shot of the day with the blow-up of the day.Woods, the can't-miss 20-year-old who's won the last two U.S. Amateur championships and is coming off his first NCAA title, made a lot of noise on the front nine at the U.S. Open yesterday. He holed a 60-degree wedge from 60 yards for birdie on No. 5, hit the stick with his approach on No. 6, and had a share of the lead when he got to 3-under on No. 12.Could Woods keep it up for four days and become the first amateur to win the Open in 63 years?

NEWPORT, R.I. -- They are not as different as they might seem, Annika Sorenstam and Pat Hurst. Both are roughly the same age, both have had good lives in golf, both shot the same score in 36 holes of playing alongside each other yesterday to finish at even par and both would give anything to win the U.S. Women's Open playoff today. They will give everything they have, which, granted, involves a couple of different inventories: Today's 18-hole playoff 9 a.m., ESPN

ROCKVILLE - It took seven extra holes to do it, but Brian Scott of Crofton collected a Middle Atlantic Golf Association junior championship yesterday at steamy Manor Country Club. Scott, an Arundel High School junior, outlasted Georgetown Prep sophomore Greg Carlin in a battle of 15-year-olds. The two played 25 holes to sort out what had been a four-way playoff, with Scott finally winning with his seventh successive par. Carlin's wayward tee shot proved the difference; he needed three strokes to reach the green and could not save par. Earlier, high school juniors Alex Brueggemann (John Carroll)

They have been labeled the nine most interesting golf holes in Carroll County.A survey of county golf professionals shows three of these choice holes are at Wakefield Valley, three at Piney Branch, two at Bear Creek and one at Western Maryland College.The selectors included PGA professionals Bill Horney of Wakefield, Jeff Zachman of Piney Branch, Greg Long of Bear Creek and Dan Loucks of Liberty Park.In reaching a consensus of the nine holes, committee members were limited to votes at courses other than their own.With no effort to divide the "Divine Nine" into equal parts of par3's, 4's and 5's, the selectors favored longer holes.
