MITCHELVILLE - Practice is supposed to make perfect, but for two of the leaders at the 83rd Maryland Open, practice hasn't mattered much. Neither Russ Nielson nor Moose Brown has played much golf this year, with Nielsen playing only 12 rounds, but the two are tied for first along with Jared Goslee after shooting 2-under par 69 yesterday at the Country Club at Woodmore. "I'm actually playing less golf this year than ever," said Nielsen, who has been the head pro at Woodmont Country Club for three years.

A father who got him started, a highly regarded professional teacher, and a strong college coach are part of the scene that has helped vault Del Ponchock into the No. 1 position on one of the most improved college golf teams in the nation.In the process, Ponchock, a fifth-year senior at the University of Maryland, has developed into one of the top collegians. For the fall-spring season combined, he has competed in eight tournaments, won three, and been out of the top five only once.Ahead of him are the NCAA Regionals, a likely place in the NCAA championships, and almost-certain All-America recognition.
