TULSA, Okla. -- Here we go again. There they go again. First it was Augusta for the Masters, then Oakmont for the U.S. Open and, most recently, the British Open at Turnberry.Next flop, Southern Hills?For at least the opening round of this year's PGA Championship, foreign-born players continued to dominate. Take your pick, but just make sure he's not carrying a U.S. passport.The story line in golf this year eventually became the story here yesterday, as the contingent of foreign-born players took a rather large swing in completing their first-ever sweep of the sport's grand slam.

Soon after he was eliminated from "Big Break: Mexico," Chad Schulze found himself with another chance to claim the top spot on the Golf Channel's reality television show and win an exemption for a PGA Tour event. Schulze, 34, of Cockeysville, was offered the chance to participate in the 20th season of "Big Break" right after the show in Mexico concluded. This time, it would be in Puerto Rico. "It was the perfect scenario. I had nothing going on," Schulze said. Schulze's familiarity with "Big Break" allowed him to make a smooth transition between tournaments and adjust how he would approach this season.

ST. LOUIS -- So it has come full circle. What began last year at the PGA Championship at Crooked Stick with John Daly's victory ended yesterday at the Bellerive Country Club with Nick Price's triumph.The fact that Daly's reign began because he took Price's vacated spot when Price withdrew to be with his wife for the birth of their first child added flavor to the drama of the afternoon. As did the presence of Price's caddie, Jeff (Squeaky) Medlen, who switched to Daly last year when Price withdrew, making Medlen the first known caddie to carry for back-to-back PGA champions.

THE LONGEST field goal ever made in the National Football League is 63 yards. The record has stood 28 years. It was set by a Tom Dempsey of the New Orleans Saints, who had half a right foot and wore a special, square-toed cleat to protect it. No other kicker wore a similar shoe. We bring up this bit of trivia not as one final commercial break from the Super Bowl, but to contrast the enlightenment of the NFL a quarter-century ago with the position taken by the folks who run today's Professional Golfers' Association Tour.

MEDINAH, Ill. -- His career, if not his life, has been watched by the world's microscope, his success and failure judged more closely than any golfer to have played the game. Today, as Tiger Woods finds himself on the brink of another victory, he will be in a position that he hasn't been in since winning the Masters two years ago.Woods will go into the final round of the 81st PGA Championship at Medinah Country Club as a leader.The presence of Canadian left-hander Mike Weir, tied with Woods after yesterday's third round at 11-under-par 205, seems almost superfluous.

In 1990, Congress passed the Americans with Disabilities Act. The ADA was intended to create a level playing field for people with disabilities by ensuring them equal opportunity in employment and equal access to places of public accommodation.The recent decision by an Oregon federal court to exempt disabled golfer Casey Martin from the Professional Golfers Association's no-cart rule has stretched the application of the ADA far beyond the original intent of Congress. Far from ensuring a level playing field, the court has given Martin a free ride over the same courses on which other PGA players must walk.

When the United States Golf Association packed up its corporate tents after the 2002 Senior Open concluded, Caves Valley returned to its roots as a private club that was selective in the tournaments it hosted. Mandated to promote the amateur ranks, the Owings Mills club welcomed a handful of events in the intervening years - none involving professionals. That will change in the summer of 2014, when the Ladies Professional Golf Association's inaugural International Crown comes to Baltimore County for a four-day, match-play event featuring four-player teams from eight different countries.

It's fine — for amateurs Chris Dufresne Los Angeles Times The most sleep-inducing word on the PGA Tour this year is "bifurcation," although the issue over whether the tour should break from USGA and R&A is hotter than Dubai. Golf's ruling lords have proposed banning "the anchoring" of a club (putter) to a player's body. The PGA Tour has suggested it won't go along. In a perfect world, this ban should have been initiated 40 years ago or at least before belly putting players won three of last five majors.

He has been a mythical figure to this generation of golf fans. A virtual recluse since playing his last competitive round in 1971 at age 58, Ben Hogan died three years ago - two months after Tiger Woods had taken their sport by storm by winning the 1997 Masters at age 21. Their legends could forever be linked, as Woods tries this week to become the first player to win three major championships in the same season since Hogan in 1953. The roads they took to the top couldn't have been more different; their approaches once they got there have had some interesting parallels.
