The Senior PGA Tour is filled with stories about players who have worked their whole lives for a sniff of the big-time, players who have spent years trying to qualify for the regular tour or toiled as club pros at out-of-the-way places or traveled each Monday looking for a spot in that week's field. And then there is Doug Johnson, the first-round leader of the $1.45 million State Farm Senior Classic. He has done all of the above -- and more. Johnson started on his career path at the 1972 Milwaukee Open as a marshal, and was so inspired by the play of the champion, Jim Colbert, that he quit college and moved to Florida.

The year was 1954. Nine days before Christmas. It was late in the evening and neither John Wickham, a cab driver, nor his wife, DeSylvia, a clothing-store cashier, had come home to their five children. At first the youngsters weren't too concerned. DeWayne Wickham, then an 8-year-old third-grader recalls, "For us, it was party time." But as the evening wore on, the oldest child, 13-year-old Andre, became increasingly worried. He stayed all night and it was he who answered the door when the police arrived early the next morning.

Keys to the game Quickness and guard play. VCU's guards moved too quickly for Maryland's zone defense and shot too well. Did you notice that ... Freshman Braxton Dupree started but was pulled early. He started the second half and finished with three points. ... Maryland's other freshmen asserted themselves early. Adrian Bowie, Cliff Tucker and Jerome Burney began the game hitting four of their first five shots as a group. Left to ponder Eric Hayes, who had a career-high 18 points against Illinois last week, missed his only two shots of the first half and didn't hit his only field goal - it was a three - until about six minutes into the second half.

No. 9, which measures 605 yards, is what the pros call a "three-shot" par-5. It's fronted by a ravine that discourages all but the longest hitters from even considering a try to reach the green in two shots. Dennis Trixler found a way to solve the lay of the land.In order to take advantage of the wide landing area 230 yards out, Trixler hit a 5-wood from the tee. He used the same club for his second shot, which left him 122 yards to the pin. He then hit a pitching wedge that landed two yards short of the hole and bounced in. It was the only eagle of the first round.

Standing in the home clubhouse after the shortest outing of his career, Orioles left-hander Wei-Yin Chen pondered why he has given up so many home runs lately, including three in a 5-4 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays on Saturday afternoon. After allowing just three in his first eight games of the season, he's yielded 12 in his past eight outings. Chen tried to answer the question as honestly as he could, but the truth is that he doesn't know why he is suddenly elevating pitches and why the opposition - including a struggling offense like the Rays' - now is making him pay. “For every game, you don't want to give up any home runs.

Maybe even longer than he will think about losing the 91st U.S. Open.The last three holes -- two par-4s sandwiched around a par-3 -- turned into a Homeric struggle for Simpson. He bogeyed all three in yesterday's playoff to Payne Stewart; was 7-over the last three rounds and lost by two shots."I didn't feel any different playing the last three holes today," said Simpson, who finished with a 5-over-par 77. "They're good holes.
