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.

Louis Oosthuizen Barry Stavro Los Angeles Times My Ouija board says the PGA champ will emerge from the group of 16 players who have won the last 16 majors and, no, Tiger Woods isn't in that mix. Sunday's winner will be … South Africa's Louis Oosthuizen. Granted, he's one of the more obscure names among the recent 16 major winners. But he's having a fine year. He came within a ball turn of sinking the winning putt at Augusta before Bubba Watson came out of the trees in a playoff to beat him for a green jacket, and Oosthuizen has continued to play well; he was in the mix last week at Firestone.

Charlie Wi shot a 2-under 69 on Friday to join Matt Kuchar in the lead after two rounds of the BMW Championship in Lemont, Ill. Still battling an illness that left him almost without a voice the day before, Kuchar rebounded from four early bogeys for a 72. Marc Leishman had the best score of the day on a course that has been giving the field fits, shooting a 65 to climb one shot off the lead at 5-under 137. Tiger Woods...

Olympic suits Kuchar Tom Yantz Hartford Courant Not Tiger, Phil, Bubba, Rory or Lee. "Kooch" will reign supreme. Matt Kuchar just won The Players Championship, where he beat a stellar field. The U.S. Open at the Olympic Club, toughened to the extreme by the USGA, will be a greater physical and mental endurance test. Kuchar can grind with the best of them. He ranks 10th in greens in regulation and 25th in driving accuracy on the PGA Tour.

Tiger Woods will be holding a news conference this afternoon at Congressional Country Club to promote the return of his AT&T National tournament. The event moved to the suburbs of Philadelphia last summer while theU.S. Open was being played at the Bethesda club. In researching a story for Tuesday's newspaper, I came across an interesting stat: Woods is currently in the worst three-tournament stretch of his legendary 16-year career. After winning the Arnold Palmer Invitational in March by five shots -- prompting even the cynical Johnny Miller to proclaim that "He's back!"

With the PGA Tour schedule making its autumn slowdown, the LPGA begins its homestretch with a focus on the one thing the men's game couldn't produce in 2010 — turnover at the top of the rankings. The No. 1 spot already has changed hands seven times, with Jiyai Shin , Ai Miyazato and Cristie Kerr passing it around since Lorena Ochoa's retirement in April. Yani Tseng , with two major titles this year, and Suzann Pettersen also are within striking distance.

The FedEx Cup begins its fifth edition of its "playoff" series this week, signaling open season for critics of the PGA Tour's attempt to give its season a meaningful finish. The points system is too wonky. The four-event series is weighted too heavily. One could win two playoff events but not the FedEx Cup. It's all worth examining. But one can't say players don't take it seriously. Why else would Ernie Els, Padraig Harrington and other top names have added their names to last week's stop in Greensboro?

This much we know: Tiger Woods isn't going to be the PGA Tour's Player of the Year. In a departure from the routine, Woods' day help won't have to clear a spot this winter for another Jack Nicklaus Trophy to go with the 10 already occupying space as doorstops or whatever. Then again, that's what happens when your hardware collection has been stagnant all year. Which brings us to what we don't know: Who might take home that Nicklaus statuette. Matt Kuchar? Dustin Johnson?

NEWPORT, Wales — A surprising 6-4 lead for the United States team at midafternoon Saturday looked less rosy a few hours later as the Ryder Cup headed toward Sunday's hoped-for dramatics. Because of the deluge of rain that hit the course Friday and caused a seven-hour delay, Saturday turned into a patchwork, nonstop march of foursome and four-ball teams. After the completion of six foursome matches (in which two-man teams alternate shots), the U.S. and captain Corey Pavin were where they weren't supposed to be — ahead.

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.
