Tiger still more talented Bill Kline The Morning Call Sure, the field has caught and even trampled Tiger Woods in stroke-play tournaments. But Tiger still has more talent than the bottom third of the U.S. Presidents Cup team combined. In match play, particularly one-on-one, he has as much resolve as a freedom fighter. And when Tiger is inspired — as he will be after his selection is maligned by some — his engine gets fired up more than Dick Vitale preaching at a motivational seminar.

Dawn Perdue has been following racing for as long as she can remember. When she was 9, Perdue watched a drag race with her father. Immediately after seeing a jet dragster go down the track, she turned to her father and told him her dream was to race in one. Perdue moved closer to that dream on her 16th birthday, when her parents bought her her first racecar, a Ford Pinto. Although she grew up in Pennsylvania near the Maryland border, Perdue's racing career blossomed in Cecil County and at Maryland International Raceway at Budds Creek Motocross Park in Mechanicsville.

The FedEx Cup chase isn't the only "tournament within a tournament" in play at this week's BMW Championship. It's also the last chance for players to lock up a Presidents Cup berth. The top 10 players in both the U.S. and international standings after this week book automatic passage to Australia for November's showdown at Royal Melbourne. Remember, too, that U.S. captain Fred Couples already has earmarked one of his wild-card picks for Tiger Woods . That leaves even less wiggle room for U.S. hopefuls.

Looking to create more interaction between baseball players from Baltimore City public and private schools, organizers of the President's Cup have changed the event's format, eschewing a 16-team public vs. private tournament in favor of a single East vs. West all-star game. Now in its fourth year, the event -- to take place Saturday at 1 p.m. at Camden Yards -- will feature two 25-man teams comprised of players from a mixture of 18 public and private schools. Lester Davis, the director of communications and media relations for City Council President Bernard "Jack" Young, said the new format better lends itself to building relationships between players from diverse social and economic backgrounds.

LAKE MANASSAS, Va. -- Provide a distinctive name, such as the Presidents Cup, line it with a cast of celebrated foreign and domestic players, create an intriguing format, utilize a pristine parcel of real estate and you have, excuse the presumptuousness, the potential for excellence.The venue is the Robert Trent Jones Golf Club, located in the Civil War country of Old Virginia, amidst a setting that might be considered an "up north" version of Augusta National. When Jones, a venerable architect whose hands have built more than 600 facilities worldwide, viewed the land, he called it "the greatest golf course terrain I've ever seen."

LAKE MANASSAS, Va. -- It's immediately apparent that the grand and regal ambition behind the concept of staging a golf tournament with a special identity, known as the Presidents Cup, is designed to separate it from the rest of the pack.This is not the Phoenix Open, the Federal Express St. Jude Classic or any of the other myriad of regular PGA Tour stops played almost weekly across the face of America's golf landscape. If that was the idea, to just be another event, the staging area would not be the prestigious Robert Trent Jones Golf Club.

LAKE MANASSAS, Va. -- The inaugural Presidents Cup took an unexpected blow yesterday when it was announced that Greg Norman -- the player for whom this event was conceived -- had withdrawn while being treated in Houston for a gastrointestinal condition.Norman, the second-ranked player in the world and the event's leading draw, recently underwent surgery for infected hemorrhoids. But, according to Dr. Richard Andrassy, a Houston physician who is treating Norman, the player's current condition is unrelated to the surgery.

POTOMAC - In the wake of much-publicized cries of poor sportsmanship surrounding the United States' emotional Ryder Cup victory last fall, U.S. captain Ken Venturi said he is planning to "show the world what tradition and dedication ... to the game is all about" at this year's Presidents Cup matches in October. In a news conference at the Kemper Insurance Open yesterday, the veteran CBS analyst also said he is "heavily considering" retirement at the end of this season, but is currently focused on retaining control of the match-play event that pits the Americans against the best world players not eligible for the Ryder Cup. Venturi said he had previously been pondering retirement, but the death of his wife, Beau, to cancer in 1998 left him "needing something to do," so he continued in his television role.

GAINESVILLE, VA. -- Presidents Cup As Chris DiMarco surveyed the 15-foot birdie putt he was about to take on the 18th green yesterday at Robert Trent Jones Golf Club, his caddie, Pat O'Bryan, said quietly, "It's the moment you've been waiting for your whole life, so go ahead and do it." DiMarco, who went from stalwart to star over the course of four days in this year's Presidents Cup, seized the moment, and the U.S. team, which had been waiting five years to win an international competition, took home a trophy that it had shared in South Africa in 2003.

The senior shortstop-outfielder led the Greyhounds (12-4) to a 4-1 record last week. Tilley came through offensively and defensively late in a dramatic 9-8 win over No. 14 Mount St. Joseph in the President's Cup semifinal game Saturday. He hit a two-run home run in the top of the seventh inning to give the Greyhounds the lead and then helped end the game in the bottom of the frame when he turned a double play at shortstop. Tilley batted .436 in the five games, including two home runs, two doubles, eight RBIs, eight runs scored, two stolen bases and a sacrifice fly. Gilman also had wins over Georgetown Prep, McDonogh and St. Paul's early in the week before losing to Archbishop Spalding.
