Golf The Masters 3:30 P.M. [Chs. 13, 9] Bet you didn't have Trevor Immelman and Brandt Snedeker in your Masters pool. Phil Mickelson lurks three strokes back, and with his nemesis, Tiger Woods, unable to buy a putt, "Lefty" has a great shot at a third green jacket. Keep an eye, though, on Retief Goosen. He has finished in the top five three years running, and he is tied for 11th.

Annika Sorenstam won the Dubai Ladies Masters by two strokes yesterday in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, for her first victory since she won there in 2006. The Swede closed with a 2-under-par 70 to finish at 10-under 278 in the Ladies European Tour's season-ending tournament. "I am so happy to have finally won again," Sorenstam said. Overnight leader Iben Tinning of Denmark had a double bogey on the final hole and finished with a 73 to tie for second with England's Laura Davies (72). South African Open -- James Kingston shot a 1-under 71 to beat Oliver Wilson by one stroke in Paarl, South Africa.

AUGUSTA, Ga. -- Phil Mickelson's popularity among golf fans didn't mushroom when he won the Masters two years ago. Even before that, he was viewed the way Arnold Palmer was a generation ago - the people's choice as much for his failures and foibles as for success in everything but major championships. It took his one-shot victory over Chris DiMarco, punctuated by a 20-foot birdie on the final hole and his much-replayed mini-leap, for Mickelson to end an 0-for-45 drought in majors. It took a subsequent one-shot win in last year's PGA Championship for him to show what happened here wasn't a fluke.

OAKMONT, Pa. -- Tiger Woods missed a right-to-left putt yesterday that would have forced a playoff at Oakmont Country Club, and the 107th U.S. Open unofficially became The International Open of America. Angel Cabrera of Argentina waddled off with the championship by shooting 1-under-par 69 and finishing at 5-over 285. That was enough, on a humid day and a treacherous track, to hold off Woods and Jim Furyk, who ended up one shot back at 286. Niclas Fasth finished fourth at 287, and David Toms and Bubba Watson finished four shots back at 289. Cabrera joins a U.S. Open winners line behind Geoff Ogilvy (Australia, 2006)

MEDINAH, Ill. -- Just to prove it's a numbers game, here comes the 88th PGA Championship, starting today, worth at least $6.5 million, with at least $1.17 million to the winner. The top 10 players in the world are at Medinah Country Club, the suburban Chicago layout, hosting its fifth major championship. And the one to watch is still Tiger Woods. His numbers are off the charts: $5.1 million, No. 1 ranked for the 404th week, four victories this year, 50 for his career, two wins and a tie for second in his past three tournaments, PGA Tour leader this year in earnings, scoring, greens in regulation, birdie average and closest to the hole.

CAPTION: Into the swing: Retief Goosen saved par after errant shots on the first three holes, later building a five-shot lead that allowed him enough breathing room so that a final-hole bogey still gave him a par-70 and the title. Unlucky 13: Mark Brooks finds trouble in a 13th-hole bunker. Bogeys on the ninth and 10th holes helped put him at a five-shot disadvantage. TULSA, Okla. - Some professional golfers have needed months, even years, to find redemption. Some never find it at all, chasing those demons of chances blown and championships lost for the rest of their careers.

AUGUSTA, Ga. -- David Duval came to Augusta National for last year's Masters tournament with the weight of the world rankings on his shoulders. He was ranked No. 1, having capped a dominating stretch of more than a year with a victory in the Tournament Players Championship. The coronation was supposed to take place here. It didn't. There was a noticeable difference when Duval arrived for the 64th Masters earlier this week. He was ranked second in the world, but treated almost as an afterthought.
