When Paul Azinger took the job as U.S. Ryder Cup captain four years ago, he did so only after wrangling an overhaul of the roster process that doubled his wild-card picks and set a later selection date. Azinger wanted the hottest players going to Valhalla, suggesting he would even take a Nationwide Tour guy if he scored back-to-back wins right before selection day. That never came into play, but the philosophy paid off when Azinger's team of upstarts ended Europe's streak of three wins.

Now the spotlight turns squarely on Corey Pavin. Colin Montgomerie had the honor of playing first, taking his share of heat for leaving a top-10 player and a PGA Tour double winner out of Europe's Ryder Cup lineup. It's a debate that won't truly be settled until Oct. 3 — and only if the Scotsman is clutching the trophy. But the European team captain's storm — pick three of five players ranked among the world's top 22 — was predicated by what he aptly termed "an embarrassment of riches.

ROCHESTER, N.Y. -- Corey Pavin has long built his reputation as golf's little big man, the scrawny guy with the huge heart, a player whose toughness more than equaled his talents.After what happened this summer at Shinnecock Hills on the final hole of the U.S. Open, and after what happened yesterday here at Oak Hill at a crucial moment of the 31st Ryder Cup, Pavin is building something else.His legacy.His 18-foot, downhill chip-in for birdie from the rough behind the 18th hole ended a tense, 5 3/4 -hour struggle with Nick Faldo and Bernhard Langer in the day's final match, giving Pavin and Loren Roberts a dramatic 1-up victory.

SANDWICH, England -- On a tense, cotton-mouth afternoon when Royal St. George's was rigged to play at its bone-dry hardest, Nick Faldo switched modes from birdie-maker to par-producer and clung to a share of the lead going into today's final round of the 122nd British Open.Dogging Faldo's par 70 all the way was a ravenous pack, led by Corey Pavin, who rode two long birdie putts to a 68 that tied the Englishman at 8-under-par 202.One stroke back were Bernhard Langer, who posted a 70 despite having to take an unplayable lie in a seemingly singular bush amid the sand hills, and Greg Norman, whose less intense demeanor was reflected in a relaxed putting stroke that gained him a 69.Behind the leading four were a host of players, beginning with Nick Price, who got back into contention with a 67 for 205 to tie with Peter Senior.

It's a gray area Teddy Greenstein Chicago Tribune Has anyone had a worse 2010 than Jim Gray? Once known for grilling Pete Rose — and not accepting Rose's lie about not having bet on baseball — he now needs to regain his credibility. Like Tiger Woods at Firestone, Gray is fighting the dreaded two-way miss: Too soft on LeBron James, too harsh to Corey Pavin (assuming he really did utter "You're going down!" to the Ryder Cup captain)

A snafu broke out over a Golf Channel report that quoted Ryder Cup captain Corey Pavin saying he would choose Tiger Woods for this year's squad if Woods doesn't finish in the top 8 of the point standings . At his news conference Wednesday, and on his Twitter account, Pavin claimed he was misquoted by Golf Channel contributor Jim Gray and that he has not selected anyone to be on the team. Pavin will reveal his picks Sept. 7. "(Gray) asked me a few questions and his interpretation of what I said is incorrect," Pavin said.

CHASKA, Minn. - - Hazeltine National will play so long for the PGA Championship, even Corey Pavin likes his chances. Huh? Pavin is the wimpiest hitter on the PGA Tour. His average drive peters out at 259.4 yards, an entire first down shorter than those of Brian Gay, who ranks 200th among the tour's 201 measured players. And yet, Pavin loves the fact that Hazeltine National could play to a major championship-record 7,674 yards, depending on the setup. Why? Because three of the four par-5s are all but unreachable, meaning that players will approach the greens with wedges or 9-irons.

POTOMAC - There will be no Phil Mickelson for "Phil's Army" to follow this week. And likewise, as one might guess, Tiger Woods won't be taking any swings in tournament competition either. But Corey Pavin will. Pavin is one of a handful of headliners who chose to be at the Tournament Players Club at Avenel two days after the U.S. Open to compete in the Booz Allen Classic. Why isn't Pavin taking it easy like many others? Because after taking most of March off, Pavin thought he needed to get back on the course and play.

SOUTHAMPTON, N.Y . - Given his reputation for accurate tee shots and a solid, if sometimes streaky, short game, Fred Funk would seem to have the right profile for a regular U.S. Open contender. His reputation hasn't translated into very much success on his Open record. In 15 appearances dating back to 1985, when he was still coaching at the University of Maryland, Funk has missed the cut eight times and has only one top-10 finish, a tie for seventh in 1993 at Baltusrol. His two previous trips to Shinnecock Hills Golf Club weren't very good - he missed the cut both in 1986 and 1995.

TULSA, Okla. -- Nick Price will be looking to stop a couple of significant streaks today in the final round of the 76th PGA Championship at Southern Hills Country Club. The rest of the field, including a group of hungry Americans, will be looking to stop Price.With his five-shot lead whittled to three, Price is trying to become the first player in 12 years to win back-to-back major championships. He is also trying to complete the first sweep of Grand Slam events by foreign-born players.A round of even-par 70 yesterday, which included a wild closing seven holes, gave the 37-year-old from Zimbabwe a three-round total of 8-under 202, three shots ahead of Jay Haas, four better than both Corey Pavin and left-handed phenom Phil Mickelson.

AUGUSTA, Ga. -- The 10-year anniversary of one of the most famous shots ever struck in the history of the Masters will likely pass quietly. That is, unless Larry Mize gets in contention again this weekend at Augusta National.A decade ago, Mize was a fairly obscure 29-year-old whose reputation was for blowing tournaments rather than winning them. He had won once, in 1983, and his penchant for losing leads had given him the unfortunate nickname "Larry De-Mize."Then Mize hit a 140-foot chip shot to beat Greg Norman on the second hole of sudden death.

POTOMAC -- Corey Pavin, with a "nothing to lose" attitude, produced one of his most solid rounds, as he equaled the Tournament Players Club at Avenel course record with an 8-under-par 63 in yesterday's closing round of the Kemper Open.The result was a 277, and a tie for 10th place. Ted Schulz (1991), David Toms (1993), Pavin (1995), and Davis Love III (1995) had shot 63. As it turned out, none of them was a winner, although Love was the closest with his playoff loss to Lee Janzen a year ago."
