BEDFORD, PA. / / It is late, and I am very tired the night I check into Bedford Springs Resort in south-central Pennsylvania's Cumberland Valley. But as the evening unfolds, I will get very little sleep. It isn't that my $249 bedroom for the night is not comfortable. The mile-high bed's thick mattress and cloud-soft bedding are cushy -- once I manage to scale them without the help of a step stool. It isn't that the hallways are not quiet. As I walk them in the wee hours of the night, I am by myself, but not really alone.

Bruce Vaughan took advantage of cool morning conditions with an opening-round 66 to take a two-shot lead in the first round of the U.S. Senior Open on Thursday in Sammamish, Wash. Less than a week after finishing in a tie for 20th at the Senior British Open, Vaughan picked up where he left off with birdies on Sahalee's 16th and 18th holes — the 18th a brutal, uphill 465-yard par 4, converted from a par 5. Vaughan then birdied the second, third and sixth holes on his back nine, before bogeying the par-3 9th, his final hole of the day. "(I'm)

The Greenbrier bills itself as "America's Resort," and if that conveys a certain arrogance and where-do-they-get-off hauteur, it's almost understandable. For one thing, the venerable West Virginia resort dates to the late 18th century, when wealthy visitors came to this isolated part of the Allegheny Mountains seeking the healing powers of its mineral springs. For another, while that first humble inn near White Sulphur Springs is now a first-class resort spread over 6,500 lush acres complete with a soaring Georgian-style main building and 670 guest rooms, it still attracts the rich, famous and powerful, who come these days for the golf, trout fishing, whitewater rafting and excellent cuisine.
