ATLANTA - Life has changed dramatically for Paul Azinger since the last time he played in the Tour Championship. That was in 1993. He was defending champion, having won the year before at Pinehurst No. 2. He was second on the PGA Tour's money list, having added to his resume his first major title, the PGA Championship. He was also a month away from finding that he had cancer. Azinger makes his return today, here at East Lake Golf Club. "It was a lot tougher [getting back] than I thought it would be," Azinger said yesterday.

Someone forgot to tell Paul Azinger that golf is not a team sport. The 2008 Ryder Cup captain operated under the crazy notion that 12 hyper-competitive men who spend the rest of the year trying to steal each other's paychecks would hold hands for a three-day event in the name of country pride. So Azinger, all too aware of the Yanks' three-Cup losing streak, created a pod system that divided players into groups of four. "We put guys together who would sell out for each other, share secrets and share philosophies," Azinger said.

KIAWAH ISLAND, S.C. -- The puzzling inability of the United States team to play well in the fourball competition at the Ryder Cup continued yesterday, keeping alive Europe's hopes of taking the coveted cup home again.Europe won three and tied one in the four matches in the fourball, or better-ball, phase yesterday afternoon at the wind-swept Ocean Course. That squared the matches after two days, 8-8, leaving the Ryder Cup up for grabs with 12 singles matches remaining today.The final blow for the Americans was the seemingly impervious Spanish duo of Seve Ballesteros and Jose-Maria Olazabal.

PONTE VEDRA, Fla. -- Paul Azinger, looking for the most important victory of his career, successfully negotiated high winds to take a one-stroke lead yesterday at the halfway mark of The Players Championship.Azinger shot a 4-under-par 68 for a two-round total of 9-under-par 135. One stroke back at 136 are Fuzzy Zoeller and Steve Elkington, with Ian Baker-Finch at 138.Wind gusts that reached 45 miles per hour in the late afternoon brought scores up from the placid first round, when 36 players broke 70. The first-round leader, Bob Tway, followed his 65 with 77."

CARMEL, Ind. -- Uncertainty is the only certainty about the two wild-card selections for the U.S. Ryder Cup team.U.S. captain Dave Stockton said yesterday that his short list to fill the final spots on the 12-man team keeps getting longer.Jack Nicklaus' phenomenal 65 in the U.S. Senior Open playoff moved him back into contention as did Chip Beck's strong showing in the Buick Open last weekend.And proven veterans like Tom Watson, Tom Kite, Curtis Strange and Raymond Floyd warrant consideration, as do a handful of newcomers and those who may fall just shy of earning enough points to make the Top 10.Stockton said the increasing options have been the first "unfun" aspect of his captaincy.

LOS ANGELES -- Paul Azinger is home on the range, a hot summer sun beating down as he beats balls at Riviera Country Club.He shoots the breeze with caddies and club-manufacturing representatives, an utter sense of normalcy prevailing as he prepares for today's first round of the PGA Championship.But underneath, everything has changed."I'm not that much different, but I think a little differently," Azinger said. "Life in general . . . it's just different. I think about the reality of, you know, what we're all going to face.

AUGUSTA, Ga. -- That Paul Azinger is present and accounted for at the annual Masters tournament lawn party causes a glow of quiet elation and, at the same time, prayers of profound gratitude. This is one golfer who doesn't have to win one of the most coveted of all championships -- although that's his pronounced intention.Just being here as a part of the Masters show provides graphic awareness of how fortunate he is to be alive. He doesn't have to beat the golf course because he has already beaten cancer.

TOLEDO, Ohio -- There will be one more walk to the first tee at the Inverness Club for Greg Norman, barring a playoff in the evening hours today. When he arrived here for the PGA Championship in 1986, he had won his first major championship, the British Open at Turnberry in the west of Scotland. History bespeaks the rest of it, as Norman watched Bob Tway hole a sand wedge on the 72nd hole to win the championship.This time Norman heads into the final round of the PGA Championship in the lead again, fresh from a pulsating triumph in the British Open at Royal St. George's, where he exorcised all those demons that had haunted him for seven years.

Favorites* Hale Irwin: Defending champion and 3-time Open winner is looking to join a select group with No. 4. Hasn't won this year but has finished in the top 5 in his past 4 events.* Seve Ballesteros: Aside from Billy Andrade, he probably is the hottest golfer in the world. Has emerged from a slump to win 3 times in Europe and Japan during the past 2 months and finished fifth last week. Has to control tee shots to stay in the hunt.* Nick Faldo: The 2-time British Open and Masters champion came within a shot of a playoff last year with Irwin and Mike Donald.
