Whoever the wag was that said golf is “a good walk spoiled” no doubt had a 20-plus handicap. Yes, the idea of chasing a ball around a series of fields with a stick to knock it into a hole hundreds of yards away is preposterous. How can that possibly be easy, or fun? But that stick is a custom-fitted weapon of forged steel with tight grooves for scientifically-designed loft and lift; a rubber grip endorsed by the best golfers on the planet; and, sometimes, a very serious price tag. The ball in question is a dual-dimpled wad of high-tech material encased in a thin urethane cover and designed to scream off the tee with a satisfying snick, and continue its flight until it is out of sight.

Human Genome Sciences Inc. has begun an 8 million-share public offering of its common stock. The company said it will use the sale proceeds to pay for such things as expansion of testing its experimental drugs in people and operating its manufacturing plant and making acquisitions. The Rockville developer of gene-based drugs filed last month with the Securities and Exchange Commission to sell up to $1 billion worth of securities in offerings that would be made from time to time as the company saw fit. The offering of 8 million shares the company announced late Thursday stems from that "shelf" registration.
