ORLANDO, Fla. -- Two days after the most positive development in his career in years, Matt Kuchar was driving through Birmingham, Ala., on Tuesday morning, tooling along to his next tournament while simultaneously recapping the highlights of his most recent start. He was experiencing, metaphorically and realistically, the highways and byways of the unpredictable pro game. "I'm cruising along I-20," he said of his whereabouts. Anybody with 20-20 vision when the Orlando native leaped onto the national scene as a college sophomore would be surprised to learn of the not-so-exotic tournament locales he's been frequenting of late, including Athens, Ga., Fort Smith, Ark., and Richmond, Va. Obviously, big-league stops like Riviera, Augusta and Colonial, they are not. But leave it to the relentlessly upbeat Kuchar, whose panache and demeanor made him the world's most famous amateur in 1997-1998, to make the best of his situation.

Tiger Woods hammered a low, drawing 3-wood, twirled his club and then gave swing guru Sean Foley a fist bump. His practice session was complete. After walking to the first tee, Woods asked an official, "What's the batting order today?" With playing partner K.J. Choi waiting in the on-deck circle, Woods put a flawed swing on that same 3-wood, and his drive settled in the right rough just 231 yards away. A so-so approach, followed by a heavy bunker shot and flubbed four-footer left Woods 2 over par before he could catch his breath at the BMW Championship.

AUGUSTA, Ga. -- Watching them during yesterday's third round at Augusta National, it was difficult to tell which male member of the Kuchar family was having the best time.Was it Matt Kuchar, the 19-year-old amateur who continued his remarkable debut at the 62nd Masters with a masterful 4-under- par 68 to put himself at even-par 216 going into the final round?Was it Peter Kuchar, the 48-year-old caddie who was soaking up the spotlight cast on his suddenly famous son, whom he described as "more than a son, he's my best friend"?

SHEBOYGAN, Wis. — Matt Kuchar reported feeling both hungry and sick after his alarm clock sounded at 4:30 a.m. Friday. "I just don't feel good when I get five hours of sleep," he said. But Kuchar insisted his mood was fine. The former college and amateur star might be the cheeriest man on the PGA Tour, with a smile frequency that rivals that of Phil Mickelson. It was merely his body, he said, that needed time to "click" after the short turnaround following Thursday's play at the PGA Championship, which was halted by darkness.

Allison Kuchar's two-run home run in the third inning proved to be the difference as No. 15 C. Milton Wright upset No. 6 Catonsville, 2-1, yesterday in the 3A North regional final. Kuchar's two-out home run spoiled a solid pitching performance from Comets ace Amanda Fefel, who went seven innings with 11 strikeouts, scattering five hits. Catonsville (21-3) also demonstrated power when Fefel hit a long homer in the second to give the Comets an early 1-0 lead. Mustangs pitcher Chelsea Funk pitched a complete game with five strikeouts.

SAN FRANCISCO -- The aw-shucks smile is still attached to Matt Kuchar's face. The magic touch is still attached to his shots. And as happened at Augusta National for this year's Masters, Kuchar's name is still attached to the leader boards.It went up there when Kuchar shot even-par 70 in Thursday's opening round of the 98th U.S. Open here at the Olympic Club. It moved up yesterday when Kuchar shot a 1-under-par 69 in the second round. Could he make it to the top by tomorrow night?"I don't know if it's ever good to start thinking about winning," said Kuchar, the 19-year-old reigning U.S. Amateur champion who recently finished his sophomore year at Georgia Tech.

He is back on the Georgia Tech campus, back in the dorms with his buddies and, for the moment, out of the spotlight that followed him to places such as Augusta National, the Olympic Club and Royal Birkdale during a whirlwind spring and summer.One more thing: Matt Kuchar couldn't be happier."He's been able to get a little bit of sanity back," said Georgia Tech coach Bruce Heppler.Kuchar seems to have no second thoughts on passing up a chance to turn pro, on not cashing in on a three-month stretch that saw him go from being a relatively unknown U.S. Amateur champion to having one of the most recognizable faces in golf.

C. Milton Wright goalie Allison Kuchar got off to a strong start this season, shutting out two opponents and allowing just one goal in another game. But it wasn't until the Mustangs played Catholic that Kuchar faced her first real test. She gave up two goals in the first 20 minutes. But Kuchar settled down and blanked Catholic after that, finishing with 13 saves as No. 5 C.M. Wright rallied for a 3-2 victory. It's not lost on Kuchar that she is replacing four-year starter Katie Kolb, who played a big role in C.M. Wright's winning last year's Class 4A state title.

What the movie-making Kuchar Brothers have lacked in budget they have made up for in imagination. At the end of a Cold War film, they piled chairs atop the actors to represent the aftermath of a bomb blast. For a ship scene, somebody off-screen tossed water onto the actors to simulate waves splashing onto a nonexistent ship's nonexistent deck. When they needed sunlight to shoot by, they'd go on the rooftops of the Bronx neighborhood where they grew up. The 57-year-old twins, George and Mike Kuchar, made dozens of needless-to-say noncommercial, mostly short movies in the 1950s and 1960s.

AUGUSTA, Ga. -- The exit was quick, the words were few, the message was clear. If Fuzzy Zoeller had only done this a year ago.After blowing past a mob of reporters as he came off the course at Augusta National, and declining an interview with CBS, Zoeller went into the clubhouse and disappeared for 15 minutes in the champions' locker room yesterday. He then walked out a back staircase and into a waiting car.Zoeller broke his silence, however briefly, and answered a couple of questions about a round of 1-under 71 in which he lost a share of the clubhouse lead with a bogey at 18."

To prepare for the Mike Kuchar Showcase on Artscape's opening night, I bought Jennifer M. Kroot's "It Came from Kuchar," an elating and revealing docu-biography of underground filmmaker Mike Kuchar and his fellow auteur, brother George. (It's now out on DVD: go to kucharfilm.com.) I was never a fan of New York's proudly amateurish, campy and poetic "underground cinema" scene, not even when I was working for a small film magazine in the basement of the Bleecker Street Cinema. But Kroot's film opened my mind to their odd charms.

I asked Jennifer M. Kroot to assess the Mike Kuchar films at Artscape. Here's what she said: "Medusa's Gaze" (2010) "It's about Mike's favorite subject: a person dealing with the aftermath of a relationship. A performance artist actually reads poetry in it, but the movie itself is poetical. Mike creates a pretty magical vision, even if the guy is just sitting in his living room, whether with very theatrical, crazy costumes or the fabric of the set. The love affair gone wrong comes out in all these mythological guises, including Medusa's gaze.

The C. Milton Wright softball team had a chance to win a state title last spring and fell one game short. The No. 4 Mustangs obviously learned from the experience. With two runs in the bottom of the seventh, C. Milton Wright got past No. 2 Chesapeake of Anne Arundel, 4-3, for the Class 4A state crown at College Park last night. Sophomore shortstop Allison Kuchar scored the game-winning run on a groundout by senior catcher Katie McCauley to give the Mustangs their third state title. With one out and the Cougars infield playing in, McCauley hit a short grounder to second baseman Kelly Hickman, whose throw to home plate was just late as Kuchar slid under the tag of catcher Samantha Dulski to send the Mustangs' side in an uproar.
