Wade Johnstone started playing squash in his native Australia when he was 3 years old. In the 28 years since, the sport has left him exhausted, frustrated, lonely, perpetually broke - and very happy with it all. Last week, Johnstone finished his daily workout and slouched in a chair at the Bare Hills Racquet and Fitness Club in northern Baltimore, where he has been the head squash pro for more than eight years. Six white-walled squash courts with glass doors sprawled in front of him. His office, which is little more than a desk and burgundy swivel chair, sat behind him. “This is my second home,” the 31-year-old said with a laugh.

TULSA, Okla. -- The signs that point in the direction of Southern Hills Country Club for this week's Tour Championship are the same ones used two years ago when the PGA Championship was held here.They might want to change them to read "TIGER."An event that usually has the attention of only its 30 participants playing for the $3 million purse and the $540,000 first-place check suddenly has become one of the biggest events in golf.All because of a 20-year-old phenom who in a little more than a month has gone from being the greatest amateur player in the world -- probably the greatest amateur in history -- to a dominant force on the PGA Tour.

TULSA, Okla. -- Has anyone told Tom Lehman that he wasn't supposed to steal the spotlight at this year's $3 million Tour Championship? Has anyone reminded Lehman that this is Southern Hills and not some local muni? One more question: Has any golfer in the field seen Lehman lately?The rest of this elite field here began losing touch with Lehman on Friday, when the reigning British Open champion birdied four straight holes to start the back nine and take a four-shot lead. Lehman was long gone by the time he finished yesterday, shooting a 6-under-par 64 and building his margin to seemingly insurmountable proportions.

ATLANTA - This has been an interesting year for Ernie Els. He had the dubious distinction of finishing second in the season's first three majors, including twice to Tiger Woods. He rose to second in the world rankings, again behind Woods. More than anyone, Els has been asked about Woods. Or, as Els has called Woods on more than one occasion: "You-know-who." Here come those questions again, this time at the Tour Championship. With you-know-who getting off to a relatively slow start in this elite 29-player field, Els took the first-round lead with a 6-under-par 64 at the East Lake Golf Club.

The realization didn't hit Bill Haas until after he clambered onto the balcony next to East Lake's 18th green late Sunday. Two trophies flanked PGA Tour Commissioner Tim Finchem for the closing presentation. One was for the Tour Championship, which Haas had just won in a three-hole playoff with Hunter Mahan. The other was the FedEx Cup. No one else seemed to be joining them on stage. "I didn't know I had won this," Haas told the commish, nodding toward the FedEx Cup. "Congratulations, you won both," Finchem said.

Tiger Woods is two shots out of last place after the opening round of the Deutsche Bank Championship in Norton, Mass., nine shots behind leaders Jason Day and Zach Johnson. Woods, who began Friday's round on the 10th hole at the TPC of Boston course, finished at 1-over-par 72. After bogeys on four of his first six holes, Woods carded consecutive birdies to finish his opening nine and added one birdie over his closing nine. Day and Johnson finished their rounds 8 under, one shot ahead of Ryan Moore, Ryan Palmer, Rory McIlroy, Hunter Mahan, Brian Davis and D.J. Trahan.

It has been a rough August on golf's rules and procedures front. For the third time this month, a harsh penalty has come down for a fairly innocuous mistake. Jim Furyk was booted from this week's opening FedEx Cup playoff event after missing Wednesday's pro-am tee time. A low cell phone battery caused the device's alarm to malfunction. "I'm beside myself," Furyk told a PGA Tour liaison, "but I have a way of climbing into stupid situations. " He's not alone. The dust hasn't completely settled from Dustin Johnson's two-stroke penalty at the PGA Championship for grounding his club in a bunker at No. 18, and Juli Inkster was disqualified from last week's LPGA stop for keeping loose mid-round by swinging a club with a weighted donut attached.
