FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- It was a more confident, comfortable Fred Couples who swept past his old friend and mentor to assume control of the Honda Classic.A week ago at the Doral Ryder Open, Couples spoke of being intimidated by the veteran Ray Floyd and observed, going into the final round, that "he won't be worried about me, and I'll be worried about him."Couples, almost certainly the best player in the world over the past nine months, exhibited a different demeanor yesterday after a 7-under-par 65 enabled him to replace Floyd as the leader after three rounds.

DORAL, Fla. — Amy Sabbatini sat her husband down Feb. 28 for a little heart-to-heart. Rory Sabbatini, whose five PGA Tour victories often are buried under a reputation for boorishness, had gotten a little snippy with a volunteer at the previous week's stop in Mexico. Nothing major, especially when held up against other incidents. But it was a red flag to Amy, who doesn't mind accompanying her husband into hot water but lately has been pushing an attitude adjustment. "I told him that no matter the circumstance, he has to behave," Amy said.

The guy from the Windy City just happens to work for a guy who loves the wind. It was blowing strong Tuesday at PGA National in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla., site of the Honda Classic and the site of Y.E. Yang's 2009 breakthrough on the PGA Tour. "Mr. Yang loves it," said his Chicago area-born caddie, A.J. Montecinos. "It was windy where he grew up. And he's an awesome ball striker." So good that five months after the Korean-born Yang survived "The Bear Trap" - a three-hole stretch at the Jack Nicklaus redesign - he tamed a Tiger at the PGA Championship at Hazeltine.

Mark Wilson won the $990,000 first prize in a four-man playoff at the Honda Classic at PGA National in Palm Beach Gardens, but only after a guy named Boo Weekley missed a 3-foot putt Sunday that would have given him the victory and basically made his life. I realize I should be the last person to comment on somebody else's funny name, but you have to admit that Boo Weekley is a pretty odd moniker for a golfer. When I first heard it, I thought it was the Orioles' 2007 marketing slogan.

Spring training is just kicking into gear, but baseball is not the only game in South Florida this time of year. In Palm Beach Gardens, less than an hour up Interstate 95 from the Orioles' training facility, is PGA National Resort and Spa, which will host the Honda Classic this coming week. In case you were wondering, Tiger Woods will not be there. He never plays the Honda - perhaps because he drives a Buick - but that just means one of your other favorite golfers will have a chance to win. My money's on defending U.S. Open champion Angel Cabrera.

Sam Saunders had 265 yards into an 18th green protected by everything but angry alligators. So, naturally, he took out his driver rather than playing it safe. Saunders hit into a bunker, leading to a bogey-6 on Sunday at the Honda Classic. But here's guessing his coach didn't mind. That man's name is Arnold Palmer . Saunders is his grandson via Palmer's youngest daughter, Amy . Palmer became rich and famous with his go-for-broke mentality, and Saunders earned some attention - plus more than $68,000 - by tying for 17th at the Honda.

Just-cut Owens signs with Bills nfl Terrell Owens has found a new team, signing a one-year, $6.5 million contract yesterday with the Buffalo Bills only two days after the high-maintenance wide receiver was cut by the Dallas Cowboys. Owens caught 69 passes for 1,052 yards and 10 touchdowns last season, but the Cowboys were looking to improve the atmosphere in the locker room and decided they would be better off without him. "I'm leaving America's team [for] North America's team," Owens, 35, said at a news conference.
