The conversation was focused on "shooting your age."More specifically, at what stage of a golfer's life should he consider the prime time to post a score the equal of his age.It was conceded to be before age 100 and after age 60. The best score ever recorded by a golfer at any age is 59.Still, the feat which has been described as the most satisfying thrill in the game has been accomplished at a wide variety of ages. It has been recorded even by golfers in their 90s.However, take it from former Piney Branch senior champion Vernon Sullivan, who, at age 72, feels he may be within striking distance of the rare accomplishment.

FARMINGDALE, N.Y. -- The crown of the PGA Tour's Everyman has not always rested easily atop Phil Mickelson's head. Often, what you saw and what you got were not what you believed. There were the long lines of autograph seekers who were never left unsatisfied. There were the frequent appearances in pro-am events, especially those long grinds such as the Bob Hope Classic, where Mickelson actually seemed to enjoy every minute and always made his 15-handicap partners feel as if they actually mattered.

FEELING FRANTIC? Got 20 hours' worth of work that you intend to plow through today? Join the crowd. It turns out that Tuesdays, on balance, are the work days in which we get the most done. That's from a survey of executives released this year by a national firm that provides temporary financial professionals. Mondays, as everyone knows, are tied up with meetings and water-cooler talk. How was your weekend? It comes in second as the most productive day of the week. After Tuesdays, the work week just falls off a cliff, according to executives' estimates of how much actually gets accomplished when.

NEW YORK -- Has Merlin Olsen traded in those tickler bouquets for a blow gun armed with some very pointed darts?Well, after hearing his commentary during CBS's Giants-Phoenix game Sunday, we must say the man is going through a metamorphosis. Olsen took out the gun and aimed it at the biggest cat on the field -- Lawrence Taylor.After discussing Taylor's post-Philly freakout "47 people quit" remark with play-by-play man Dick Stockton, Olsen -- unlike assorted tapeheads and pen-toters who applauded Taylor's spiel -- made one heck of a point.

A year ago, R.W. Eaks came to the Baltimore Country Club for the Senior Players Championship playing the best golf of his life. Another strong finish, and possibly even his first major championship, seemed within reach. After an opening-round 67, which left him tied for the tournament lead, it looked like his dream season was only about to get better. A week later, he could barely walk. "I kind of sprained one of my knees [walking the hilly Baltimore Country Club course], and it kind of snowballed from there," said Eaks, who tumbled down the leader board and finished tied for 47th, 19 shots behind winner Loren Roberts.

Joe Lynch of Baltimore County has been playing golf for only two years but has made progress quickly. He usually plays at Pine Shore Golf -- a tough 27-hole layout on Beauchamp Road that features three nines of par 30 each -- with octogenarian John McQuay.Recently, Lynch shot a 69 over 18 holes, topping McQuay for the first time. Even though 69 is 9-over-par, it's impressive since Pine Shore owner Al Janis has a standing challenge to anyone who plays par 72 courses to see how close to par they will be on the difficult course.
