Mickelson said he needed to spend more time on the range with his swing coach, Butch Harmon, before theU.S.

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.

SHEBOYGAN, Wis. — Now it all makes sense. For months golf's No. 1 ranking has sat there on a platter, ready to be consumed by Phil Mickelson. But based on Mickelson's play, you might have wondered whether he actually wanted to overtake Tiger Woods as the world's greatest player. Now we know otherwise. Mickelson revealed Tuesday at the PGA Championship that he is being treated for a form of arthritis that left him so debilitated, he could not get out of bed during a family vacation to Hawaii in late June.

Battling for 1-A are Phil Mickelson, Rory McIlroy, Luke Donald, Lee Westwood and Steve Stricker. We eliminate McIlroy because he is just a kid and showed that when he whined after the British Open about not liking to play in bad weather. It's not Donald because he can't hit enough big boomers. We eliminate Westwood because he always seems to eliminate himself.

Phil Mickelson has planned enough Masters champions dinners around what he likes. For his third, he's bowing to others. Mickelson said his first thought was a tribute to Seve Ballesteros , whose first Masters win came 31 years ago and inspired a 9-year-old Mickelson to dream about a green jacket. Ballesteros has been unable to travel in recent years while battling brain cancer. "I sent him an e-mail saying if he were able to come and feeling healthy enough, I would love to have the dinner be something he would like — a Spanish dish of paella or whatever he thought would be appropriate," Mickelson said.

Tiger Woods hammered a low, drawing 3-wood, twirled his club and then gave swing guru Sean Foley a fist bump. His practice session was complete. After walking to the first tee, Woods asked an official, "What's the batting order today?" With playing partner K.J. Choi waiting in the on-deck circle, Woods put a flawed swing on that same 3-wood, and his drive settled in the right rough just 231 yards away. A so-so approach, followed by a heavy bunker shot and flubbed four-footer left Woods 2 over par before he could catch his breath at the BMW Championship.

Five weeks ago, Graeme McDowell proved the steadiest when Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson and other marquee names couldn't keep from snagging golf spikes at Pebble Beach. Louis Oosthuizen follows with the most dominant non-Tiger performance in a major since Jack Nicklaus 30 years ago. The casual golf fan asks, "Who are these guys?" The answer: Maybe folks just haven't been paying enough attention. Especially when it comes to players who spend the bulk of their time on the other side of the pond.

ST. ANDREWS, Scotland — A month ago at Pebble Beach, Phil Mickelson did the nearly unthinkable when he played the first round of the U.S. Open without a birdie. On Thursday, it almost happened again. Despite benign conditions that didn't worsen until after he made the turn at the Old Course, Mickelson couldn't get a birdie putt to fall until the final hole of a 1-over-par 73. That left him trailing 96 other golfers, in a fight to make the cut with worse weather on the way. "I fought hard today," Mickelson told ESPN in his only interview.

Jason Bohn, Jeff Overton and Blake Adams shot 7-under 63s Thursday to share the first-round lead at the Colonial in Fort Worth, Texas, where 2008 champ Phil Mickelson struggled after an impressive start. Mickelson birdied the first two holes, but that was the lowest he got on a hot day with ideal scoring conditions. He finished with a 1-over 71 and is tied for 89th after 75 players broke par. It would take quite a comeback for Mickelson to win his third Colonial, a victory that would push him to No. 1 in the world ranking ahead of Tiger Woods for the first time.

AUGUSTA, Ga. -Phil Mickelson and Tiger Woods stole the show for most of Sunday. But they exited stage right before the green jacket ceremony. Mickelson birdied six of the first eight holes, becoming just the fourth player in Masters history to record a front-nine 30. The others: Johnny Miller in the third round in 1975, Greg Norman in the fourth round in 1988 and K.J. Choi in the second round in 2004. "The front nine was awesome," Mickelson said. "It was really fun, and it gave me a chance on the back.
