LYTHAM ST. ANNES, England - The door appears open for someone other than Tiger Woods to win the 130th British Open this week at Royal Lytham and St. Annes, and the someone many have mentioned as a potential candidate to take home the coveted claret jug is Sergio Garcia. Just one question: Will the 21-year-old Spaniard take too long to get a firm grasp on one of golf's most hallowed pieces of hardware? Those who remember the final round of last month's U.S. Open at Southern Hills in Tulsa are still talking about Garcia, gripping and regripping his clubs as if they were lathered in Vaseline, while shooting his way out of contention with a 5-over-par 77. Those who recall what happened to Garcia in recent British Opens - the tearful teen-ager collapsing on the shoulder of his mother after missing the cut two years ago at Carnoustie as well as the petulant PGA Tour rookie who took a chunk out of the almost sacred sod at St. Andrews after a disappointing shot from a sand divot - remain skeptical.

SHEBOYGAN, Wis. — Sergio Garcia went ballistic Thursday after blasting out of a greenside bunker during a bogey-bogey-bogey stretch. He slammed his wedge into the bunker five times, then threw the club at his bag, leaving his caddie to clean up his mess. The former No. 2 player in the world has slumped since suffering a broken heart at the hands of Morgan-Leigh Norman — the daughter of Greg — in the spring of 2009. "It hurt," he said. Garcia announced last weekend he will take a two-month break after the PGA Championship, bypassing the FedEx Cup events and the Ryder Cup. "I need to miss the game a little bit," he explained.

Admittedly, seeing the gung-ho American golfers kick some European butt at the Ryder Cup (especially Anthony Kim routing Sergio Garcia) was certainly satisfying. But as far as memorable, sorry, international team golf doesn't exactly inspire bar-stool reminiscing. Two other events that occurred over the weekend are much more likely to linger in the memories of sports fans, and both involved Baltimore teams. Of course, the final game at Yankee Stadium will be remembered more globally as the Bronx Bombers closed out an 85-year run in The House That Ruth Built with a 7-3 win over the Orioles, who served as foils in the nostalgic farewell.

2 p.m. [channels 11,4] PGA Tour events aren't usually scheduled to finish on a Monday, but it's a Labor Day special. Mike Weir (right) leads. He's left-handed and Canadian. Camilo Villegas is one stroke behind Weir. Villegas is the guy who wears tight clothes and gets down on the green to read his putts as if he were a snake. Sergio Garcia is three back, and because this isn't one of the majors, he has a chance to win.

CARNOUSTIE, Scotland -- The name of Sergio Garcia, familiar to the world's golf fans for eight years and 36 major tournaments seems ripe for new recognition. Sometime today, here on the east coast of Scotland, the Spaniard could fulfill his huge promise by commanding this 136th British Open and claiming his first major title at age 27.

The numbers are in: On three typical holes in the final round of the U.S. Open last Sunday, Sergio Garcia averaged 33 seconds before his tee shot and 23 pre-swing waggles. Those numbers come courtesy of Richard Sandomir of The New York Times, who notes that, by comparison, in his famous Honeymooners golfing lesson for buddy Ralph Kramden, Ed Norton committed nine waggles during a 15-second swing preamble. Unlike Norton, Garcia didn't address the ball with a hearty, "Hello, ball!" Others, however, weren't shy about addressing Garcia's waggles, which can be defined as repeated loosenings and regrippings of the golf club.

CARNOUSTIE, Scotland -- On an often-gorgeous day rife with often un-gorgeous golf, it took a steady hand to keep his wits and the lead. That would be Sergio Garcia, who, at 27, is playing in his 36th major tournament. He left the premises yesterday with the same two-shot lead he had brought along for his 9 a.m. tee time. His even-par 71 lacked the sparkle of his first-round 65, but with most of the players below him plunging even more precipitously, and with Tiger Woods' deficit swelling from four shots to seven, the 71 began to look shiny.

Birdie on 18 puts Weir in front at Deutsche Bank GOLF Mike Weir holed a 5-foot birdie putt on the 18th hole for a 4-under-par 67 to take a one-stroke lead yesterday in the Deutsche Bank Championship in Norton, Mass., leaving him in a familiar position with hopes of a better outcome. It was the 10th time the Canadian has had at least a share of the 54-hole lead on the PGA Tour, but he has only one win when leading going into the final round. Weir had a 17-under 196 total. He matched the course record Friday with a 61 and shot a 67 on Saturday.

SOUTHPORT, England - Sergio Garcia is from Spain. Ernie Els hails from South Africa. Each feels right at home on the western coast of England. Even before Tiger Woods had to call it a year to have more surgery on his ailing knee, Garcia and Els would have liked their chances at a course such as Royal Birkdale, with all those odd bumps, that howling wind off the Irish Sea, the ominous clouds hanging overhead in seeming perpetuity. The site of this year's British Open, which starts today, is the sort of place where they learned the game, honing their swings and accepting that it's not necessarily a bad thing to hit a grounder from the middle of the fairway.

OAKMONT, PA. -- You expect the Green Bay Packers to win at Lambeau Field in December. You figure the bulls will fare OK on the streets of Pamplona. And you'd bet the mortgage that Takeru Kobayashi will eat the most hot dogs at a Tokyo Wienerschnitzel. In competition, home-field advantage is supposed to mean something. So how then do we reason that the U.S. Open is about to tee off at Oakmont Country Club and the American golfers have rarely looked so vulnerable on their home turf? Lately, it's like they've been running a red carpet for their out-of-country guests from the first tee box Thursday to the 18th green Sunday.

Who do you think will win a major golf tournament first - Sergio Garcia or Chris DiMarco? While Sergio has the length and the game to win any tournament, his balky putter seems to be holding him back. Chris DiMarco's fine all-around game, along with his confidence and his competitive spirit, will help him break through first in a major. Jim Kirby Columbia I believe that Chris DiMarco has a better chance of winning a major. When the pressure was on, DiMarco kept hitting clutch putt after putt down the stretch in the British Open.
