BLOOMFIELD TOWNSHIP, Mich. - The PGA Championship looked a lot like the U.S. Open, with only seven players under par when darkness finally covered Oakland Hills yesterday and put "The Monster" to sleep. It sounded like a U.S. Open, too. "There's only one guy who's going to like this place by the end of the week," Ben Curtis said. Jeev Milkha Singh and Robert Karlsson found it agreeable enough after each shot 2-under-par 68 in the pleasant morning conditions, before thunderstorms stopped play for 90 minutes in the afternoon.

PINEHURST, N.C. -- He is a former U.S. Open champion whose career has been interrupted a number of times by injuries and illness. Steve Jones, who won the Open at Oakland Hills in 1996, came out of the dark yesterday at Pinehurst No. 2. Playing in the Open for the first time since 2002, the year he was sidelined by a career-threatening heart problem, Jones put himself on the leader board and possibly into contention at the 105th U.S. Open by shooting a...

There were two potential stumbling blocks when course superintendent Steve Glossinger was first approached five years ago about coming to work at Caves Valley Golf Club. He had never heard of the Baltimore club. He was working at Oakland Hills in Bloomfield Hills, Mich., considered by some among the top 10 courses in the country. Yet he listened to what Dennis Satyshur, Caves Valley's director of golf, as well as club chairman Les Disharoon and president Reg Murphy had to offer: a chance to put the then- 6-year-old club on the map. Glossinger, whose status had gone to near guru-level among his peers after the 1996 U.S. Open at Oakland Hills, took his leap of faith, leaving behind his Michigan roots and putting his reputation on the line.

San Francisco. -- Afriend from the East Coast called to inquire about the latest disaster to hit the Bay Area -- the fire in the Oakland hills. I painted a firestorm of cataclysmic proportions: a smoke-veiled sun that turned the sea the color of blood; inhabitants fleeing from balls of fire; ashes raining down from the sky."Man, California living must be over-rated," my friend exclaimed.We Californians live now, as Joan Didion would put it, "close to the edge," beset with reminders of how transient life can be: the mudslide of '82 that sent houses down slopes to meet highways; the earthquake of '89 that set glass and concrete a-tumbling; now the firestorm of '91, fed by Santa Ana-like winds, that left burnt-out hot tubs, charred sports cars, lonely chimneys.

In more than two decades as a track commentator, ABC's Marty Liquori scrupulously has avoided the temptation to become a part of the action, going so far as not to tell runners how far they were from the finish line or even where their closest competition was.But Liquori crossed that line during the running of the Advil Mini-Marathon, which airs today on "Wide World of Sports" (Channel 2, 4: 30 p.m.) and probably helped keep a deserving runner on course for the Olympics, and saved her from injury.

BLOOMFIELD TOWNSHIP, Mich. - Not long after Tiger Woods announced he was done for the year because of knee surgery, the search began for the player who could dominate golf in his absence, especially the final two majors. Padraig Harrington didn't make too many short lists. Most eyes were on Phil Mickelson, No. 2 in the world with three majors among his 35 victories around the world. Maybe it was time for Ernie Els to emerge anew, especially now that Woods wasn't around to break his heart.
