FORT WORTH, Texas -- There are three compelling reasons why Jim Furyk has not written a golf instruction book for amateurs - his grip, his swing and his putting approach. All are unconventional. But they work for Furyk, who heads into the Bank of America Colonial as the top-ranked player in the field in season earnings ($2,962,649), scoring average (69.46) and world ranking (fifth). "I wouldn't tell people to try to copy what I do," said Furyk, who overlaps two fingers on his grip, has a loop at the top of his swing and putts cross-handed.

It has been a rough August on golf's rules and procedures front. For the third time this month, a harsh penalty has come down for a fairly innocuous mistake. Jim Furyk was booted from this week's opening FedEx Cup playoff event after missing Wednesday's pro-am tee time. A low cell phone battery caused the device's alarm to malfunction. "I'm beside myself," Furyk told a PGA Tour liaison, "but I have a way of climbing into stupid situations. " He's not alone. The dust hasn't completely settled from Dustin Johnson's two-stroke penalty at the PGA Championship for grounding his club in a bunker at No. 18, and Juli Inkster was disqualified from last week's LPGA stop for keeping loose mid-round by swinging a club with a weighted donut attached.

Who will win the U.S. Open this weekend? A win by Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson or Davis Love would make it a fairy-tale Open, but Retief Goosen's putter may play the big, bad wolf in this version. Michael S. Herman Sr. Baldwin For reasons of sheer reputation and sentimental value, many pundits and fans alike pick Tiger Woods. However, the course at Winged Foot demands both exemplary accuracy and putting. Therefore, my pick is Jim Furyk to ultimately raise the trophy. Chris R. Buchar Baltimore The real winner will be Winged Foot Golf Club.

ORLANDO, Fla. - At first Arnold Palmer said he would keep an opinion regarding Tiger Woods to himself. Then he let it out. "The best thing he can do is to open up and let a bunch of guys shoot at him," Palmer said. "That's just my thought." Translation: Palmer believes Woods should sit down with a full contingent of reporters and answer questions about his four-plus-month absence from the PGA Tour, which was brought on by a sex scandal. "That might be the best way to move on," Palmer added.

Four-time Bay Hill Invitational winner Tiger Woods added his name to the commitment list for next week's PGA Tour event, again cementing another strong field for host Arnold Palmer's annual spring fling. Woods, who has won four of his past five official stroke-play events worldwide, including last week's Ford Championship at Doral, took this week off in advance of Bay Hill. For now, he still resides at Isleworth, located just across the Butler Chain of Lakes from Bay Hill. "A week off, and you don't get many home games," he said Sunday night.

Jim Furyk finally won after 32 months and 58 tournaments, and it became a footnote Sunday. When he reached the 18th green after a wild detour through the trees at Innisbrook, at Palm Harbor, Fla., two television networks broadcast the first interview with Tiger Woods since revelations he had been cheating on his wife. Furyk wasn't aware of this until after he won the Transitions Championship. One of Woods' closest friends on the PGA Tour, he walked into the interview room holding a three-page transcript of Woods' interviews with ESPN and the Golf Channel.

During the course of the first 30 Ryder Cups, the biennial international team golf tournament that pits the United States against Europe (formerly just the United Kingdom), the Americans whupped up on the other guys, winning 23 of those events and sharing the trophy twice. But over the past six Ryder Cups, the Americans are 1-5 and winless in the new century. In fact, in the past two, it was the U.S. getting beaten badly, 18 1/2- 9 1/2 . The next Ryder Cup is scheduled for Sept. 19-21 at Valhalla Golf Club in Louisville, Ky., and by any handicapping measure, the chances of the Americans turning this around are pretty slim.

CARNOUSTIE, Scotland -- On an often-gorgeous day rife with often un-gorgeous golf, it took a steady hand to keep his wits and the lead. That would be Sergio Garcia, who, at 27, is playing in his 36th major tournament. He left the premises yesterday with the same two-shot lead he had brought along for his 9 a.m. tee time. His even-par 71 lacked the sparkle of his first-round 65, but with most of the players below him plunging even more precipitously, and with Tiger Woods' deficit swelling from four shots to seven, the 71 began to look shiny.

SOUTHAMPTON, N.Y. - When Jim Furyk appeared between the gallery ropes at Shinnecock Hills yesterday, he caught a few folks unaware. Furyk had surgery on his left wrist March 22 and had been told he might miss three to six months while recovering. This being New York, he had played only two holes of his unexpected practice round before he began getting some feedback on his surprise appearance. "Welcome back, Jim," a course marshal said. "I hope you win." Furyk laughed and said, "I hope I start."

OLYMPIA FIELDS, Ill. - All over the country, 25-handicap golfers with hitches in their backswings and cross-handed putting grips are feeling a little better about their games. Jim Furyk, who took the imperfect swing taught him by his father as a youngster to improbable heights, won the 103rd U.S. Open last night at Olympia Fields. Not only did Furyk win the first major championship of his 10-year career, but he did it rather easily. It seemed fitting that Furyk, given his restrained personality, won without any dramatics.

AUGUSTA, Ga. -The fans wanted to witness history, and Chad Campbell strived to supply it. Not long after the soft-spoken Texan set a Masters record by making birdies on his first five holes, the patrons shouted words of encouragement. "63!" "One more!" "Get to 10!" Campbell's birdie on No. 16 got him to 9-under par, but he retreated with bogeys on 17 and 18 for a still-sterling 65 that left him wanting more. "Leaves you with a sour taste in your mouth," he said after falling two strokes shy of the course-record 63 - but five better than Tiger Woods.

The NFL could have a new commissioner by the end of the owners meeting that begins today outside Chicago, and who in Baltimore won't be happy to bid farewell to Paul "Build another Museum" Tagliabue? The list of candidates is down to five and a final decision could be made by late tomorrow, barring a small-market mutiny that could delay the expected coronation of in-house favorite Roger Goodell. Personally, I'd like to see the NFL go outside the box and choose Constellation Energy chief executive Mayo Shattuck III, but maybe I'm just being provincial - or campaigning for a cushy underling job in the central office, where I hear you have to climb over big barrels of $100 bills just to get to your desk.

Tiger Woods let it all out yesterday, releasing a huge burst of emotion after he dropped the final putt to win the British Open for the second straight year. He clutched his caddie and then his wife, tears flowing as the significance of his first major victory since the death of his father hit home in a big way. Indeed, the iceman came unglued after staring down the rest of the field at Royal Liverpool on the way to an 18-under-par 270, but he also served notice that he is all the way back as the engraver carved his name on the famous claret jug during the final two holes of the tournament.

OLYMPIA FIELDS, Ill. - Jim Furyk joined Tiger Woods in the record books of the U.S. Open yesterday, not once but three times. Woods, who obliterated the field at Pebble Beach three years ago, was not a factor. As Furyk became the third player in tournament history to get to double digits under par, Woods played his way out of serious contention in the third round of the 103rd U.S. Open at Olympia Fields. Furyk finished a round of 3-under-par 67 with a 30-foot birdie putt that put him at 10-under par for the third time in a stretch of 10 holes, helping him break the previous 54-hole Open scoring record by three strokes.

Can't we all just get along? It isn't even football season yet and Terrell Owens and Donovan McNabb are at it again. Frankly, I expected Donovan to take the high road after T.O. re-ignited their running feud with his new tell-all book, T.O., but McNabb always seems to take the bait. He labeled Owens' autobiography a "children's book" and disputed many of the revelations included in it during a media session Friday, as if there is anyone out there who needs to be reminded that T.O. is a major loon who would say just about anything to get on SportsCenter.

MAMARONECK, N.Y. -- Anyone who watched the U.S. Open yesterday can say they had a chance to witness history, with Tiger Woods missing the cut in a major for the first time in his professional career. It's almost the same for many players who are still in the field. They can say they have a chance, period. They sensed a whole new openness to the Open once the most towering figure in golf failed to make it to the weekend. "Well, it helps. It helps us all," said Colin Montgomerie, who is at par after two rounds on a daunting Winged Foot course and will be in the final group today with the leader, Steve Stricker (1-under)
