IRVING, Texas -- Nick Price's first victory in eight years on the American pro golf tour was upstaged yesterday by the initial application of golf's instant-replay rule.Price, a former globetrotter who now resides in the United HTC States, scored a welcome but more-or-less routine one-stroke victory in the Byron Nelson Classic."Eight years is a long time to be patient," Price said after his closing 68 and 270 total made him a winner in this country for the first time since the 1983 World Series of Golf.

TROON, Scotland -- Almost since John Highet, a local doctor, and James Dickie, a builder from Glasgow, came up with the idea of creating a small golf course in 1878 on the Ayrshire shore, the Postage Stamp -- the infamous, 123-yard eighth hole at Royal Troon -- has been delivering beatings to golfers. The best in the world will try again at Royal Troon when the British Open begins tomorrow. Royal Troon is where Arnold Palmer won his second straight British Open in 1962, though he never had better than a par-3 at the eighth.

At the end, Glen Barrett pointed to one shot that was the difference in his one-stroke victory in the 73rd annual Maryland Open championship at Crofton Country Club yesterday.Clutching a one-stroke lead over close friend and Glenn Dale Golf Club shop associate Webb Heintzelman, Barrett hit a 170-yard 6-iron shot from a terrible lie in a fairway bunker and the ball wound up 35 feet below the cup in a deep swale.The ensuing multi-breaking putt fell into the cup for a birdie-3, and a two-shot margin.

THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. -- It ended on the 17th green, with darkness falling on the golf course and Tiger Woods enjoying another moment in the spotlight.Winning a match that was both different and controversial, Woods overcame an early two-hole deficit to defeat David Duval, 2 and 1, in the Showdown at Sherwood, a match-play exhibition unlike any they play on the PGA Tour.Neither Woods nor Duval could control what people thought of the event, nor could they control how many people watched the ABC network telecast.

AUGUSTA, Ga. -- Around the world, Ian Woosnam is recognized as one of the most competitive and skillful of golf's shot-makers. The only void, if you can call it that, was he had never proven his ability before an American audience.Now that omission in his otherwise glittering resume has been taken care of, and the 33-year-old Welshman is wearing the green coat emblematic of the Masters championship. He performed with consistency and an unruffled demeanor as he won the 55th renewal of this famed tournament, played over the hallowed hills of the Augusta National Club on a hot, humid afternoon.

POTOMAC - Duffy Waldorf finally got the better of the back nine at the TPC at Avenel yesterday. After struggling with the inward stretch in the first two rounds at the Capital Open, Waldorf used four back-side birdies to erase a pair of bogeys on his way to a 2-under-par 33. That gave Waldorf a 66 - his best score in 39 competitive rounds here - and left him at 8-under, three shots behind leader Rory Sabbatini. "Today, I obviously played my best [on the back nine], making all of those birdies," Waldorf said.

At a time when most corporate checkbooks are taking a rest, and as senior golf elsewhere is scrambling for boardroom support, businesses in the Baltimore area are greeting this week's U.S. Senior Open with a record-setting shower of cash. Even before the catering bills have been tallied, more than $5 million has been spent on corporate hospitality - a record for the U.S. Senior Open, and perhaps for any senior golf tournament. Dozens of local corporations are spending $100,000 or more to lease tents along the fairways of Caves Valley Golf Club.

PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. - Leave it to Jack Nicklaus to give the crowd watching behind the 18th hole at the Pebble Beach Golf Links yesterday one last memory from more than four decades in the U.S. Open. Leave it Nicklaus to find a way to say the proper goodbye to a golf course and a tournament that defined his legendary career. It didn't matter that Nicklaus shot an 11-over-par 82, his highest score in 160 Open rounds. It only mattered that Nicklaus had one last great shot left in his 60-year-old body.

Two-time champion Charlie Narciso had yo-yo nines of 32-39, but his par-matching 71 was good for a two-stroke lead halfway through the annual Baltimore Publinx golf tournament at Forest Park Golf Course yesterday.Serge Hogg, 36-3773, and Keith Janecek, 38-3674, were the only others in the championship flight of the four-flight, 120-man tournament to better 75.First flight leaders Trip Burch, 36-3773; and Donald Stout, 36-3874, were the only others under 75.Narciso had four birdies on his first nine, putting six 3s on his card, and there were visions of shooting in the 60s.Taking a cue from U.S. Open players who have been offsetting eagles with double-bogeys, those visions disappeared at the 11th hole, as his tee shot hit a cart path and bounded out of bounds.
