They were two venerable rivals who knew each other's moves and strategies as well as their own. When the New York Aquatic Club A team and the Olympic Club of San Francisco clashed yesterday for the title at the U.S. Water Polo National Championships at the Naval Academy, the outcome was likely to be determined by which side received the better defense and goaltending. And, so it was. Olympic goalie Dan Hackett and the men directly in front of him were brilliant and the New York team prevailed, 7-4, to finish first in an eight-team affair that stretched over three days.

- If Tiger Woods is the star attraction and host of the AT&T National tournament beginning Thursday at Congressional Country Club, Beau Hossler is certainly high on the marquee. Golf fans - and plenty of others - now know Beau. A year after playing here as a virtually unknown 16-year-old amateur in theU.S. Open, Hossler returns as something of a social media phenomenon after staying in contention - and briefly leading - this year's Open at the Olympic Club in San Francisco earlier this month.

SAN FRANCISCO -- Casey Martin's first official day at the 98th U.S. Open at the Olympic Club turned out to be anything but a smooth ride.Martin -- the disabled professional golfer who won a lawsuit against the PGA Tour that allows him to use motorized transportation in competition -- needed three golf carts to complete an 18-hole practice round yesterday.His first cart broke down in the first fairway, and a replacement cart did not have enough power and weight to make it up a hill next to the No. 2 tee box.The U.S. Golf Association, the governing body that conducts the U.S. Open, has agreed to honor Martin's courtroom victory and provide him a cart this week.

SAN FRANCISCO -- Tom Lehman will play in the last twosome of the day in the final round of the U.S. Open for the fourth straight year when he tees off today at the Olympic Club. But for the first time, Lehman will not have either a share or sole possession of the lead."The pressure will finally be on the other guy," Lehman said after climbing into contention with a 2-under-par 68 to move him within four shots of third-round leader Payne Stewart. "It's something a little different. Maybe it's better for me."

SAN FRANCISCO -- King Martin can still remember the afternoons when his two sons, Cameron and Casey, would go out to the backyard of the family's home in Oregon and set up a miniature golf course using cut-down clubs and Whiffle balls."

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.

The Navy Aquatic Club "A" team faced tough competition in the opening round of the U.S. Water Polo National Championships yesterday, and paid the price. Host Navy was routed in both its matches in the eight-team tournament at Lejeune Hall, losing to California, 11-3, and New York Aquatic Club, 16-7. Navy coach Mike Schofield did not have high expectations for his team in this event, even though most of his players were on the team that took fourth in the NCAA tournament last year. He said he considers this weekend's tournament a primer for the fall season, while most of the other entrants are reaching the end of their campaigns.

POTOMAC -- The Kemper Open is getting ready for its 12th trip to the TPC at Avenel and its first trip to the PGA Tour's version of nirvana.A field that includes Tiger Woods. Though it won't be made official until a week from Friday, the 22-year-old superstar is considered a sure bet to play in the June 4-7 event."As of now, we're on Tiger's schedule," tournament chairman Ben Brundred said yesterday.Woods, who broke a 10-month winless drought with his recent victory at the BellSouth Classic outside Atlanta, will likely play in next week's Memorial Tournament in Dublin, Ohio, and at the Kemper before taking a week off prior to the U.S. Open.

SAN FRANCISCO -- Rumors about what the USGA would announce in regard to possible changes in equipment regulations flew like some of John Daly's drives in the month since many top manufacturers took out ads extolling the virtues of high-tech golf.But when USGA executive director David Fay and president Buzz Taylor were finished with yesterday's much-anticipated news conference at the Olympic Club, rumors had been quieted and one thing was perfectly clear: The USGA had backed down.In an announcement that calmed both the fears of players and manufacturers, as well as the loathing for what the USGA seemed on the brink of doing, Fay said that "virtually all" of the clubs currently on the market and being used by the world's top players met standards being proposed.
