WILMINGTON, Del. -- Alice Ritzman said it best for all the survivors of two rounds of the McDonald's LPGA championship when she declared, "I'm lucky to be where I am."The first-day co-leader, a 16-year tour veteran, is one shot out of the lead after a 2-over-par 73 and a 36-hole total of 141.This was a bright, sunny day, but a wind that gusted to 35 mph "made it a nightmare," according to Ritzman. "When the conditions are like this, you hope to hit it solidly. When you don't, the wind accentuates your problems."

Life on the professional golf tour for any man or woma straining to reach the top of the leader board is an unending struggle. Frustration and pain compounds itself. The search for a consistent swing, one that rings the cash register, creates devilish torment.Tina Barrett, 24, knows the discouraging experience of suffering punishment while in constant pursuit of pars, birdies and a piece of the prize. She led going into the final round of the Inamori Classic in Poway, Calif., yesterday and came away with a 1-over-par 73 that added up to a total of 282 and left her in a fourth-place tie. Still, the overall showing was praiseworthy.

It can be described as a hard way to make an easy living. A grit-your-teeth, grind-it-out kind of business.For Tina Barrett, like the rest of the more than 200 accredited players on the LPGA Tour, golf becomes a challenging game of numbers. Less than three-quarters of that many tournament places, 144, are available, and only the 70 top finishers each week receive part of the purse.Barrett, 27, has found tour life to be a demanding but rewarding experience.After attending Perry Hall High School, where she played on the boys' golf team, Barrett went on to Longwood (Va.)

When Sarah LeBrun Ingram has her golf game under control, all facets of it radiate brilliance.This was true several times in the 1980s, when she emerged on the local sporting scene as a shy teen-ager, then went on to earn All-America recognition at Duke.Never had Ingram, 25, reached such a consistent level of superior play, however, as she displayed during the past year. The highlights were her first Women's Western Amateur title and the Women's Mid-Amateur championship, her first United States Golf Association crown.
