It all looked so familiar Sunday -- except when it didn't. There was Tiger Woods on the 18th green at the Arnold Palmer Invitational in Orlando. Same good-luck red shirt as always on the final day. Same enthusiastic -- even adoring -- crowds cheering his every move. Same look of grim determination on his face when he needed to concentrate. But when he sank his final putt for a 2-under-par 70 to officially win the tournament by five strokes over Graeme McDowell and end 30 months of no wins on the PGA Tour, we saw a different reaction from Tiger than we'd seen in the past.

LOS ANGELES -- Tom Watson found himself in a greenside bunker yesterday during a practice round at Riviera Country Club, site of the $1 million Nissan Los Angeles Open that gets under way tomorrow.He holed out from 60 feet, prompting his caddy, Bruce Edwards, to say: "Now you do it."It was one hole too late for such a dramatic shot.It would have been nice to have won with this kind of flair last Sunday, but bunkers weren't his main obstacle in the Pebble Beach National Pro-Am. It was a different problem.

WILL THE United States Golf Association get it right for this week's U.S. Open at Pinehurst's No. 2 course? Johnny Miller concluded NBC's 2003 U.S. Open telecast by saying that Olympia Fields was a bit too tame. He jokingly warned players that the USGA would exact revenge the next year at Shinnecock Hills. After 36 holes in Southampton, however, 2004 co-leaders Phil Mickelson and Shigeki Maruyama were 6-under par. Seventeen players had finished 36 holes at par or better. That kind of scoring is probably too low for USGA standards.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- Until Johnny Miller came along, golf commentary on TV consisted of a good-old-boy, face-saving conspiracy of silence.When once asked why he so rarely criticized anyone, Lee Trevino, Miller's predecessor at NBC, replied, "If I have to criticize people to keep this job, then I don't want the job."That was the state of golf analysis. If, in a crucial situation, a player hit an awful shot, or badly missed a makable putt, the standard practice was to invent an external reason.

POTOMAC - At first glance, he looks very much the same. The bulging arms, white-blond hair and backswing to the heavens could only belong to John Daly. But something is different. The arms are less beefy, the hair doesn't blow recklessly in the breeze and the backswing might even be a touch shorter. The differences are subtle - indeed, the casual observer might just see ol' Long John about to rip another one - yet in Daly's mind, he has finally found the right direction. But the biggest change didn't occur on the outside of the 1991 PGA and 1995 British Open champion.
