When the U.S. Women's Open last visited Oakmont Country Club in 1992, Patty Sheehan prevailed over Juli Inkster in a Monday playoff after matching four-day totals of 4-under par. No word whether the U.S. Golf Association was showing mercy. Oakmont and the USGA last tested the game's top men three years ago, when Angel Cabrera won at 5 over — and hardly anyone complained about a tricked-up layout. Judging from early reviews, this Women's Open will more resemble that affair than the 1992 version.

Lee Snyder, owner of Hampstead's new Oakmont Green Golf Course, is a man of unusual vision.It was on a cold, rainy day eight months ago that Snyder -- his words barely audible above the roar of bulldozers carving out shapes of tees, greens and fairways -- predicted his course would be ready by June 1, 1992.There were many doubters. Some even went so far as to say it would be impossible.Yet, with still three weeks to go, Snyder is confident of meeting the opening target date."Actually," said Snyder, "I'm very happy with most aspects of the project.

OAKMONT, Pa. -- Tiger Woods missed a right-to-left putt yesterday that would have forced a playoff at Oakmont Country Club, and the 107th U.S. Open unofficially became The International Open of America. Angel Cabrera of Argentina waddled off with the championship by shooting 1-under-par 69 and finishing at 5-over 285. That was enough, on a humid day and a treacherous track, to hold off Woods and Jim Furyk, who ended up one shot back at 286. Niclas Fasth finished fourth at 287, and David Toms and Bubba Watson finished four shots back at 289. Cabrera joins a U.S. Open winners line behind Geoff Ogilvy (Australia, 2006)

HAMPSTEAD -- Struggling shopkeepers are angry that the town might allow yet another retail center to be built while existing space remains vacant.Several retailers attended the Planning and Zoning Commission meeting last week to protest the Oakmont commercial site, a shopping center planned for the north end of town on Route 30.One entire shopping center sits empty on Black Rock Road. Several storefronts at the new Roberts Field have yet to attract their first tenants, and five or six have been abandoned at North Carroll Plaza.

When free-market forces collide with government regulations, the shock waves can travel far.They've been felt in Hampstead, where the proposed Oakmont Green shopping center has forced the town government to reconsider the role it plays in deciding how much retail space is desirable.The planned shopping center would include a 42,716-square-foot grocery store and 13,800 square feet of additional retail space on the east side of Route 30 across from Brodbeck Road.Opponents of the new shopping center say there is no need for more retail space in Hampstead, and it's the town's duty to prevent over-development.

The Hampstead Town Council last night unanimously approved revamping the town's zoning ordinances, which have not undergone a major update since 1972.Town Manager John A. Riley responded to criticism that the town was changing the ordinance to accommodate the developers of the Oakmont Green Retail Center."The town is not changing the ordinance for Oakmont, we're changing it because Oakmont brought to light a lot of inconsistencies in the zoning ordinance," he said.The former zoning ordinance was a copy of the county zoning ordinance.

OAKMONT, Pa. -- It could be that Phil Mickelson will long for the day when he was an idiot. At least back then he still could swing a club. Right now, it seems very unlikely that Mickelson will redeem himself for the U.S. Open meltdown at Winged Foot Golf Club, the one last June in which he turned a lead into a loss on the last hole and said, "I am such an idiot." He showed up at this Open in a different kind of pain, one in his inflamed left wrist. If it weren't the U.S. Open, if it were some other tournament, he probably would not be playing, he said yesterday at Oakmont Country Club.

HAMPSTEAD GOLFER Paul Kraushofer has a knack for coordinating golfers and corporate sponsors into popular tournaments that yield substantial contributions to nonprofit groups.This year, he organized a golf tournament that raised more than $2,000 for the Grant-A-Wish Foundation."I'd rather be able to give than to be needing help, and I'm thankful I can do so," Kraushofer said. "People enjoy the game, and the foundation benefits, so it's a winning combination."Grant-A-Wish Foundation, founded in 1982, is a comprehensive charitable assistance program based in Baltimore that offers experiences for the critically ill child and the family throughout the child's illness.

Hampstead's current contretemps over the Oakmont Green Center is a not an example of good town planning. From appearances, it seems that Hampstead's council changed its zoning law just to suit this proposed retail complex. The council's handling of this project has damaged the integrity of the town's planning process.Over this winter, the town government did an about-face on the Oakmont center. Initially, the plan was rejected. Within six weeks,However, the zoning code was revised to more easily accommodate developments such as this, and a month later, voila, it was approved.
