As an example of the good things that can evolve from sports, turn your attention to an organization known as the Golfers' Charitable Association. It's on the way to making its second million dollars -- which, like the first million, will go to humane causes.This is the 25th anniversary of the group that was formed for the purpose of supporting professional golf in Baltimore but, at the same time, donates substantial revenues to hospitals, educational and rehabilitation institutions. The members allow themselves the enjoyment of being involved in golf, but the scorecard adds up to an immense profit for charity.

The trip back to Baltimore has been a long one for professional golf. It will be 10 years this summer since a then unknown Swede named Liselotte Neumann introduced herself with a victory in the U.S. Women's Open at Five Farms.The trip for Lee Corrigan and his partner, John Matthews, to help bring another tournament to the area might not have been as long, but it was certainly difficult. In fact, their road to staging this year's State Farm Senior Classic at Hobbit's Glen in Columbia was nearly flooded out.It began four years ago, when the founders of EMCEE Sports, a Columbia sports marketing firm, approached PGA Tour officials about bringing an event to what was one of the country's largest markets without one."

For most of his 19-year career on the PGA Tour, Payne Stewart was known for his style rather than his substance. His behavior was admittedly more that of a churl than a champion. But last winter, he went through a major transformation.He stopped drinking. He took his religious faith more seriously. He went from a player who fans -- and members of the media -- openly rooted against to one they pulled for, as happened when Stewart won his second U.S. Open in June.It was his third major championship and the 11th victory of his career.

Albert Lord doesn't like to wait - not in business or on the golf course. The colorful chairman of student loan behemoth Sallie Mae, who's embroiled in a nasty fight over the failed sale of the company, has spent 40 years in the accounting and banking industries. He said that experience should have instilled in him a measure of patience, but it hasn't. Whether in traffic, at the office or on the links, Lord said, he just doesn't like to wait. He can't do much about the first two, but he's got a sure-fire solution for the last one: He's building his own, an 18-hole golf course on land he's acquired amid shuttered tobacco farms and grazing horses in southern Anne Arundel County.

TIGER WOODS almost never relinquishes a lead. He wins coming from far behind as well -- as he did on Sunday, making up seven shots in seven holes at Pebble Beach. Power and finesse, confidence and grace, he may have it all -- and he's strikingly mature at the age of 24. Sunday's victory gave him six PGA championships in a row. He presses to match the record set in 1945 by the man called Lord Byron. Mr. Woods probably won't win another five straight. And yet he has already surpassed many of golf's best players of this and any era. When Byron Nelson went on his tear, professional golf was a relative infant.
