GULLANE, Scotland -- The 121st British Open, which started today at Muirfield, provides the American game with the opportunity to confirm its renewed dominance of international golf.After years of yielding much of the high ground to European stars, the Americans have recovered to the point that they hold three of the game's four major championships, as well as the Ryder Cup.The only big prize not now in their grasp is this one, now claimed by a quasi-American, Ian Baker-Finch, an Australian who lives in Florida and plays the U.S tour.

GULLANE, Scotland - History suggests that Tiger Woods will win the 131st British Open this weekend at Muirfield. The list of the 14 past Open champions at this 111-year-old course considered by many to be the purest test of any in the rotation includes modern legends such as Jack Nicklaus and those from long ago such as Harry Vardon. Starting with a fellow named Harold Hilton back in 1892, there is not a slouch in the bunch. Logic, too, tells us that Woods, 26, will become the second player in history to win the first three legs of golf's Grand Slam.

GULLANE, Scotland - The last time a British Open was held here at Muirfield, Nick Faldo played the role to which Tiger Woods has now ascended. A decade ago, Faldo was the No. 1 golfer in the world and the most intimidating figure at a tournament he had won twice. "I came here as the favorite. I was here with the intention of winning," Faldo said yesterday. "So that's very similar to what Tiger is thinking right now. He's the man to beat, and he's just got to be comfortable with the way he prepares."

GULLANE, Scotland -- J. A. Prideaux has spent most of this summer wondering whether it was ever going to rain.This is not typically a concern in Scotland, but the Muirfield secretary had reason to worry. With each unseasonably warm and sunny day, Muirfield grew drier and browner. Imagine moving the 1992 British Open to Arizona from bonnie Scotland."It was the fairways that I was most concerned with," Prideaux said last week. "We had seven weeks of no rain. That would do the fairways no good whatsoever."

GULLANE, Scotland -- If Muirfield were a person, it might be the kind of grim British schoolmaster that many of its members -- the prideful and all-male Honorable Company of Edinburgh Golfers -- happen to resemble.Lessons would be delivered with brisk condescension and an undeniable truth: "Place your drives in the fairway, young sirs, or golf for you will be little more than heavy labor."Indeed, missing the short grass at Muirfield, where the 121st British Open begins today, usually forces a player to bend his back in the hayfields that pass for rough or excavate earth from craters that pass for bunkers.

ST. LOUIS -- As the final major tournament of the year, the 74th PGA Championship, which was to begin today at the Bellerive Country Club, is most attractive as a battle between a select few to win the official stamp as the best player of 1992.This year's chosen elite are Fred Couples, winner of the Masters; Nick Faldo, the British Open champion; Tom Kite, the U.S. Open champion; and Davis Love III, a three-time winner. Their edge is so clear-cut that the PGA of America, showing admirable stage presence, has joined Couples, Faldo and Kite in a threesome for the first two rounds.

GULLANE, Scotland - As he hoisted the Claret Jug at Royal Lytham & St. Annes after the final round of last year's British Open to celebrate the first major championship of his career, David Duval seemed to have finally climbed over the hump. Little did anyone know that the hump would only get larger. Going into the 131st Open, which begins at Muirfield tomorrow, Duval seems more like an afterthought than the tournament's defending champion. He has missed the cut in the three events he has played since finishing tied for fourth at the Memorial Tournament, including the U.S. Open.

Sergio Garcia: The talented Spaniard has the game to compete with Tiger, but does he have the temperament? Fans here will be more tolerant of Garcia's club waggling routine, but he has to show a little more maturity when adversity strikes. Ernie Els: It has been five years since Els won the second of his two U.S. Open titles, and he has come close in a handful of majors since. He hasn't played well recently, but Els is a streaky putter capable of going low at any time. Phil Mickelson: He has to end his winless streak in the majors, now 0-for-40, at some point, given his stature as the world's No. 2 player.

Rickie Fowler gave himself a chance to be the next youngster to win on the PGA Tour, shooting a 6-under 66 on Friday in Dublin, Ohio, to tie the 36-hole record at the Memorial Tournament and take a three-shot lead. Fowler, 21, ran off three straight birdies late in his round, giving him a good buffer from second-place Justin Rose heading into the weekend at Muirfield Village. Fowler was at 13-under 131. That tied the tournament record set by Scott Hoch in 1987.
