MEDINAH, Ill. -- Somebody must have gotten the name wrong. Mighty Medinah? After yesterday's third round of the PGA Championship, it's time for a change. Try Mickey Mouse Medinah. There were enough birdies to fill up an aviary at Medinah Country Club, which had been enjoying this huge buildup as a tree-lined, golf ball-munching, 7,561-yard uphill march through a grassy gauntlet. Not so much. Medinah has turned out to be about as macho as a doormat. And this is precisely how Tiger Woods treated it, walking all over the place with a 7-under-par 65 yesterday that matched the course record.

Pick, don't bet on U.S. Teddy Greenstein Chicago Tribune I'll pick the Stars and Stripes. You can justify the pick like this: Even though the Americans have lost four straight on the road, they've won two of their last three in the land of the free. Plus Tiger Woods is to Chicago golf what pre-busted Lance Armstrong was to the Tour de France. Woods won the last two majors played at Medinah. But the Europeans have the better putters (Luke Donald, Rory McIlroy, Ian Poulter)

MEDINAH, Ill. -- In the cold rain, in the growing darkness, on a wet and bumpy 18th green, that's far from the normal comfort zone for Tiger Woods. But that's precisely where Woods introduced himself to the 88th PGA Championship yesterday, the moment a slippery, 18-foot right-to-left breaking putt disappeared into the hole for a birdie that defined his day. Moments later, while Woods did a television interview, a grinning Phil Mickelson walked over and...

MEDINAH, Ill. -- The late-afternoon sun filtered through the trees yesterday at Medinah Country Club as Tiger Woods removed his cap to salute the fans who cheered each footstep of his leisurely stroll up the 18th fairway and straight into legend once again. Woods left Medinah with the $1.224 million winner's check, his 12th major championship and his streak intact of nine straight rounds in the 60s. The numbers are more than impressive; they are dominating. He made only three bogeys in 72 holes, played the par-5 holes in a combined 8-under par, made 21 birdies and, for good measure, became only the fifth player to win the PGA Championship at least three times.

MEDINAH, Ill. -- He is 9 years older and a few million dollars richer, the result of the success he has had since joining the Senior Tour. Except for the gray in his hair and a more friendly demeanor, there isn't much difference to Hale Irwin now as there was when he won the U.S. Open here in 1990.Irwin, then the oldest player to ever win the Open at 45 and now the oldest player in this year's 81st PGA Championship, is still in contention in a major championship at Medinah Country Club. With a 3-under-par 69 yesterday, Irwin is at 5-under 139 and four shots off the lead.

MEDINAH, Ill. -- It was opening day of the PGA Championship, or, if you prefer, Round 1 of the Tiger Woods-Phil Mickelson battle at Medinah Country Club. The record will show that when it came time to play, the two competitors shook hands, walked to opposite corners of the tee and then came out swinging ... their clubs. Expecting a fistfight perhaps? Scorecards showed matching 69s for Woods and Mickelson, their showdown ruled a draw, but still accompanied by the kind of fanfare that might be expected from this rare superstar matchup.
