PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. -- Lee Trevino had just completed a 64, and he was running hot.His 8-under-par score could have been better. And he knew it."I'm still hot about those two bogeys," Trevino mumbled yesterday after establishing a four-stroke lead at the halfway point of the PGA Seniors Championship.His mood quickly improved, however, when he began recounting the fastest start of his career: a 29 on the front, 9-under par after 10 holes and 10 under after 12."Yeah, after I make eagle on 10 and birdie on 12, I was thinking of the 50s. Just for a minute, until I made that little boo-boo on 13," Trevino said.

LEE TREVINO was always one of the most entertaining players in professional golf, but now - at the age of 65 - he's also a miracle of modern science. The "Merry Mex" has returned to the Champions Tour after a lengthy layoff, choosing the Constellation Energy Classic at Hayfields Country Club to put his bionic lower back to its first real test since he underwent revolutionary surgery in Germany four months ago. The procedure involves the insertion of small titanium rollers to create space between the discs and reduce the likelihood of nerve inflammation and painful back spasms.

DETROIT - This week's Ford Senior Players Championship will be Lee Trevino's last major-championship event. He is quietly walking away from Senior Tour majors. This is the final major of 2001, and Trevino said it's simply the end of the line. "Yeah, that's right. I'm not the kind of guy to make it official or whatever," Trevino said before arriving in Dearborn, Mich. "I don't dwell on any of that stuff, but this is it. "There comes a time when you've got to stop and slow down. Some people say, `How many majors did you play?

Both came after he had charged long first putts past the hole.

But it wouldn't drop.Then Trevino, who left his attempt at birdie short, had to sink an 18-inch putt for par to claim a one-shot victory.Trevino incurred the penalty when he touched the ball and caused it to move in the tee area of the 13th hole, a 136-yard par-3 surrounded by desert sand and rocks.

George Archer spends much of his time away from the Senior PGA Tour fishing for trout near his home in Lake Tahoe, Nev. A year ago, Archer and his brother took their now-91-year-old father out with them. "It was cute, my dad caught five, I caught one and my brother caught three," recalled Archer. "My dad said, `Well, I guess I out-fished the boys.' " That's how Archer, 60, feels when he outplays those younger than him on the Senior Tour. It happened in the tour's opening tournament this year, the MasterCard Championship, where Archer won his 19th senior title.

The numbers are telling.Of the first 20 tournament winners on the Senior PGA Tour this season, none has been older than 55. The two most dominant players have been rookies Bruce Fleisher and Allen Doyle. Only one player in the Top 20, Al Geiberger, is over 60.Which makes it seem likely that whoever wins this week's State Farm Senior Classic will fit a profile: a player who has been out on the 50-and-over tour for five years or less and might not be a household name.The second-year, $1.3 million tournament begins today at the Hobbit's Glen Golf Club with a 78-player field lacking in name recognition, but not in competitiveness.

BETHLEHEM, Pa. -- Any time the United States Golf Association runs up its flag for a major championship, the players' comments are almost predictable.That's the way it was on the eve of the 13th annual U.S. Senior Open at Saucon Valley Country Club yesterday, although the veterans of this event and the U.S. Open admit comparing conditions for the two is similar to matching apples and oranges.The beautiful, tree-lined layout, designed by Herbert Strong and opened in 1922, is perfectly straightforward, with no hidden problems.

BETHESDA -- It was raining, sometimes easy and sometimes hard, and no one could blame Lee Trevino if his preparations for the U.S. Senior Open beginning tomorrow at Congressional Country Club included sticking close to the clubhouse. Maybe even in an old air raid shelter.Twenty years ago to the day, Lee and fellow PGA tourists Bobby Nichols and Jerry Heard were competing in the Western Open outside Chicago. The boom of thunder was followed by the crack of lightning and Trevino, huddled underneath an umbrella with Heard, screamed, "I'm hit."
