FRANKLIN, Wis. -- Being behind made all the difference for Mark Brooks in his head-to-head battle with Robert Gamez at the Greater Milwaukee Open.The co-leaders were tied at 19-under par after 15 holes yesterday, but Brooks was in the group behind Gamez. The arrangement allowed Brooks to see that a risk-free approach was called for down the stretch, and his application of that translated into a one-stroke victory."It's not a pretty way to finish, but I got the job done," said Brooks, whose final-round, 2-under 70 gave him an 18-under 270 total for 72 holes.

POTOMAC -- Mark Brooks came into this year's Kemper Open as The Other Guy in his threesome, obscured by the imposing shadows cast by John Daly and Phil Mickelson.After leaving Daly and Mickelson in the dust with an opening-round 65 Thursday, Brooks appeared ready to do the same to the rest of the field yesterday by doubling his three-shot lead on two different occasions.But Brooks ran into problems on the back nine at Avenel. By the time he was finished, he had seen a possible record-setting round turn into merely a respectable one. His seemingly insurmountable lead had become significantly less comfortable.

TULSA, Okla. - He is not quite Roy McAvoy, the fictitious driving-range pro from Texas who nearly wins the U.S. Open in the movie "Tin Cup." He is certainly not Tiger Woods, the No. 1 player in the world whom he and two others lead by nine strokes after two rounds of the 101st Open here at Southern Hills. Meet J.L. Lewis, the 40-year-old Texan who once gave lessons at a driving range in Austin and later worked at a country club in Round Rock, Texas, after making a little more than $9,000 in his rookie season on the PGA Tour.

CAPTION: Into the swing: Retief Goosen saved par after errant shots on the first three holes, later building a five-shot lead that allowed him enough breathing room so that a final-hole bogey still gave him a par-70 and the title. Unlucky 13: Mark Brooks finds trouble in a 13th-hole bunker. Bogeys on the ninth and 10th holes helped put him at a five-shot disadvantage. TULSA, Okla. - Some professional golfers have needed months, even years, to find redemption. Some never find it at all, chasing those demons of chances blown and championships lost for the rest of their careers.

ST. ANDREWS, Scotland -- So many demons. John Daly has beaten booze. He has struggled through the headaches and sugar rushes of sobriety. He has fought the habit of giving up in mid-golf round. He has weathered three suspensions from the PGA Tour because of behavioral problems. He and his reputation have felt the chill of cold shoulders from his peers.So it follows that yesterday, in the 124th British Open, at the birthplace of golf, in wind that gusted at 52 mph, Daly found himself in a position where he again needed to overcome.

POTOMAC -- By design, John Daly and Phil Mickelson were paired in yesterday's opening round of the $1.3 million Kemper Open. By regulation, Mark Brooks was thrown in to fill out the threesome.While his name certainly would have been in smaller letters if the Tournament Players Club at Avenel used a marquee to promote its most attractive grouping, Brooks now finds himself where it matters: on top of the leader board.With Daly and Mickelson getting most of the attention from the galleries, Brooks extracted nearly as many birdies out of the Tournament Players Club course as his two more celebrated playing partners combined.
