No question the timing wasn't great for Vijay Singh to fall out of the top 50 in the world rankings, but it could have been worse. It could have happened next week. The only man to interrupt Tiger Woods' reign at No. 1 still has one week to get back inside that cut line and reserve a spot in both the U.S. Open and British Open. Singh stands 51st this week, with J.B. Holmes one spot back and PGA Tour rookie Rickie Fowler at No. 54. All need a top-5 finish at the Byron Nelson Championship to meet automatic qualification.

Eighteen suddenly seems like an awfully large number, like Roger Maris' 61 and Hank Aaron's 755. Those figures towered over baseball until sluggers began injecting power into their veins. But Tiger Woods won't be able to ingest his way to Jack Nicklaus' record for major championships. If there existed a pill to help make 12-footers, we all would have taken it by now. Just 81/2 months ago, around the time Americans were pouring gravy on their stuffing and dark meat, Woods seemed an absolute cinch to reach 18. Not yet 34, Woods had claimed 14 majors, one by 15 strokes (the 2000 U.S. Open)

Tiger Woods has said he doesn't know when he'll return from his neck injury, but he filed his entry form for the British Open on Monday. The Open will be played at St. Andrews, one of Woods' favorite courses. He won his first British Open there in 2000 by eight strokes, and his 19-under 269 is the best score ever at St. Andrews. Woods has committed to two other events this summer, the U.S. Open at Pebble Beach June 17-20 and the AT&T National July 1-4, where his foundation is the benefiting charity.

Justin Rose played bogey-free Friday and shot the best score of the tournament, a 6-under 64, to build a one-shot lead over Jason Day and Charlie Wi at the AT&T National in Newton Square, Pa. The weekend will include defending champion Tiger Woods , but just barely. He had an even-par 70, making a routine par on his last hole to make the cut on the number. • Na Yeon Choi followed her opening 64 with a 4-under 67 to build a two-stroke lead over three golfers through the second round of the LPGA's Jamie Farr Owens Corning Classic in Sylvania, Ohio.

Top 10 picks for the 66th Masters, with odds: Tiger Woods (5-1): Not the overwhelming favorite he has been in the past, Woods is still the player to beat. Coming off a poor putting performance at The Players Championship, Woods needs to get his flat stick working to become the first repeat champion since Nick Faldo in 1989 and '90. Retief Goosen (10-1): He has missed the cut in two of his three previous appearances at Augusta, but that was before his victory in last year's U.S. Open. Goosen has backed it up with four wins since, including last week's BellSouth Classic.

Good morning -- Vijay Singh -- With Tiger Woods also failing, you picked a good weekend to miss the cut with no one noticing. QUESTION OF THE DAY Which Super Bowl champion had the better defense - the 1985 Bears or the 2000 Ravens? The 2000 Ravens with the NFL record for fewest points per game coupled with the only defense to pitch a Super Bowl shutout [special teams excluded] trumps "Da Bears." David Kelley Towson There is only one answer to this question, and it is: "We'll never know."

So Ravens running back Jamal Lewis fell 39 yards short of the NFL's single-season rushing record Sunday night, ending up with 2,066 to Eric Dickerson's all-time best of 2,105. Is being No. 2 really so bad? You decide. 1. The PGA ranks Tiger Woods as the No. 1 golfer in the world. Who is No. 2? 2. The country's largest retailer is Wal-Mart. What company ranks second? 3. Ruben Studdard won TV's American Idol singing contest in 2003. Who came in second? 4. Augustus was the first emperor of Rome.

It was going to happen eventually. He simply couldn't win every time he teed it up (could he?) Still, it was somewhat remarkable yesterday morning when Australia's Geoff Ogilvy officially ended Tiger Woods' winning streak by wrapping up the rain-delayed CA Championship. Ogilvy shot a 1-under-par 71 to end the somewhat absurd talk of Tiger's perfect season, finishing at 17-under, one shot better than Retief Goosen, Vijay Singh and Jim Furyk. Woods started the day five back and finished fifth.

AUGUSTA, Ga. -- Trying to win the Masters for the first time is tough enough. Vijay Singh did it yesterday with Tiger Woods, David Duval and Ernie Els chasing him all the way to the finish line. If ever there was a group of challengers frightening enough to cause a leader to crumble in the final round at Augusta National, this was it. But Singh never gave his pursuers even the smallest opening. He was three shots in front when the final round started and ended, and not once in between did anyone catch him. Not once did he succumb to any of the traditional Masters pressures that have swallowed so many.

FARMINGDALE, N.Y. - -The secret to a successful golf swing, Ben Hogan believed, is in the dirt. The secret to success in the first round of the U.S. Open this year? Avoiding the dirt. Or, more accurately, the mud. "Look," Mike Weir said, "I'm wearing white shoes. They're hardly dirty at all." It helped that Weir spent the round walking on clouds, firing a 6-under-par 64. Also key was that Weir teed off Friday in the afternoon wave. By then, Mother Nature (finally) had taken mercy on Bethpage Black after soaking her so thoroughly, Boo Weekley joked that the frogs sought shelter.

Birdie on 18 puts Weir in front at Deutsche Bank GOLF Mike Weir holed a 5-foot birdie putt on the 18th hole for a 4-under-par 67 to take a one-stroke lead yesterday in the Deutsche Bank Championship in Norton, Mass., leaving him in a familiar position with hopes of a better outcome. It was the 10th time the Canadian has had at least a share of the 54-hole lead on the PGA Tour, but he has only one win when leading going into the final round. Weir had a 17-under 196 total. He matched the course record Friday with a 61 and shot a 67 on Saturday.

TULSA, Okla. -- The last three winners of the PGA Championship are Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson and Vijay Singh, who have combined for 18 major titles, 12 by Woods, so they have strength in numbers. This year, the tournament will be played starting today at steamy Southern Hills Country Club, where the forecast for the rest of the week, for the 98th PGA Championship, the fourth and final major of the year, is lingering heat and a first-time winner. Except that Tiger Woods is hotter than anyone.

POTOMAC -- There was a feeling during last week's Memorial Tournament that Greg Norman simply ran out of holes, that the momentum he had gathered early in the third round was lost in waiting to finish the rain-delayed and then rain-shortened event.So after shooting a 5-under-par 66 yesterday at the TPC at Avenel, Norman was asked if it was just a continuation of what transpired at Muirfield Village. "First round of the Kemper Open, I wish it were the fourth round at Memorial," he said.It didn't help improve his best finish of the season -- Norman was tied for second behind the eventual winner, Vijay Singh -- but it did help his chances to do something he hasn't accomplished since a month before his historic collapse at last year's Masters.
