It's still Tiger and Phil Bill Dwyre Los Angeles Times The best golfer in the world is at home in Florida with ice packs on his bad knee. Battling for 1-A are Phil Mickelson, Rory McIlroy, Luke Donald, Lee Westwood and Steve Stricker. We eliminate McIlroy because he is just a kid and showed that when he whined after the British Open about not liking to play in bad weather. It's not Donald because he can't hit enough big boomers. We eliminate Westwood because he always seems to eliminate himself.

Olympic suits Kuchar Tom Yantz Hartford Courant Not Tiger, Phil, Bubba, Rory or Lee. "Kooch" will reign supreme. Matt Kuchar just won The Players Championship, where he beat a stellar field. The U.S. Open at the Olympic Club, toughened to the extreme by the USGA, will be a greater physical and mental endurance test. Kuchar can grind with the best of them. He ranks 10th in greens in regulation and 25th in driving accuracy on the PGA Tour.

SHEBOYGAN, Wis. — With the PGA Championship over, the U.S. Ryder Cup roster got its first eight members Sunday. Both Anthony Kim and Lucas Glover fell out of the top eight in the point standings, with Bubba Watson and Dustin Johnson replacing them thanks to their strong finishes Sunday. Tiger Woods is 12th in the standings and will have to be one of Corey Pavin's four captain's picks to join the team. The rest of the team: Phil Mickelson, Hunter Mahan, Jim Furyk, Steve Stricker, Jeff Overton and Matt Kuchar . Overall, it's a young team, Mickelson said.

Though freshly divorced Tiger Woods generated the big headlines when he arrived in Wales without a wife or girlfriend, he isn't the only U.S. Ryder Cup player going solo. Steve Stricker , favored to be Woods' partner in the two-man segments, had to travel without wife Nicki after her grandmother broke a hip. Nicki's mother had agreed to watch their kids but now has to attend to an ailing parent. Stricker received the news Saturday night, when Nicki called him in tears.

All that Welsh mud has dried by now, offering something of a bookend finish to the PGA Tour's high season. Mud — or more aptly, slime — also ruled headlines, you'll recall, as 2010 set forth. Come to think of it, there wasn't much tidiness in between, either. Tiger Woods didn't win a tournament. Phil Mickelson won one. So did a Monday qualifier (Arjun Atwal, Greensboro). Nobody won more than three. Two players shot 59. A rules violation decided a playoff. Another denied someone a playoff — for a major.

MAMARONECK, N.Y. -- Anyone who watched the U.S. Open yesterday can say they had a chance to witness history, with Tiger Woods missing the cut in a major for the first time in his professional career. It's almost the same for many players who are still in the field. They can say they have a chance, period. They sensed a whole new openness to the Open once the most towering figure in golf failed to make it to the weekend. "Well, it helps. It helps us all," said Colin Montgomerie, who is at par after two rounds on a daunting Winged Foot course and will be in the final group today with the leader, Steve Stricker (1-under)

This much we know: Tiger Woods isn't going to be the PGA Tour's Player of the Year. In a departure from the routine, Woods' day help won't have to clear a spot this winter for another Jack Nicklaus Trophy to go with the 10 already occupying space as doorstops or whatever. Then again, that's what happens when your hardware collection has been stagnant all year. Which brings us to what we don't know: Who might take home that Nicklaus statuette. Matt Kuchar? Dustin Johnson?

It's not the question one wants to hear hours before boarding a trans-Atlantic charter for one of golf's biggest weeks. Are you gassed? Matt Kuchar paused a beat but made no attempt to dodge. "I could use a couple of down days," the FedEx Cup runner-up admitted Sunday. "But I don't get a couple of down days for a couple weeks. I've understood that. " Ryder Cup vs. FedEx Cup. It's a delicate balance. Four years ago, one of the prime reasons offered for the United States' back-to-back Ryder Cup wipeouts was that the PGA Tour's best couldn't get back to high gear after essentially shutting it down after the PGA Championship.

POTOMAC -- For every Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson, for whom success came early on the PGA Tour, there are scores of players who have labored in obscurity, ones struggling on and off the tour to achieve success.John Morse, who has played himself into Kemper Open contention with rounds of 69-68137, is one of the latter, having come to the tour in 1994 at the advanced age of 36.Today and tomorrow, he will be trying to get his game home in the same fashion he has pushed it to this point, a 5-under-par total, one stroke behind co-leaders D. A. Weibring and Mark Wiebe.

POTOMAC -- If Lee Porter felt lonely going out after yesterday's rain delay during the second round of the $3.5 million Kemper Insurance Open, he could be forgiven. How would it feel if you were leading the tournament and your two playing partners decided to go home? That is what happened when Porter returned to the course after the delay without Mark McCumber or Chris Perry, both of whom withdrew during the break. "It was really weird at the time," said Porter, who was 8-under at that point and one shot ahead.

PINEHURST N.C.-- Years from now, perhaps when the U.S. Open returns to Pinehurst No. 2, they will talk about what happened this week in the same way they talk about what happened at Winged Foot a quarter-century ago.With one significant difference: the players will speak of reverence for this hallowed course rather than revile the way the USGA tricked up Winged Foot back when Hale Irwin won at 7-over par.They also might recall something else -- the first...
