AUGUSTA, Ga. - Nine months ago, Adam Scott led the British Open by four shots with four holes to go. That's how close he was to winning his first major. Instead, he made like Ed Sneed at the 1979 Masters. Sneed led by three with three left but never got one of those green jackets. Neither did Scott get his claret jug. Instead he became one of those train-wreck tragedies that dot golf's lore, closing with four straight bogeys to finish one behind Ernie Els. The fact that it happens is one thing.

AUGUSTA, Ga. - Several Australians have had chances to win the Masters over the years and fallen short, but Adam Scott thought of only one as he strode up and down the hills of Augusta National Golf Club in the rain and the gathering darkness Sunday. Maybe it was destiny. Maybe it was a "We-Owe-You-One" idea brought into play by the ghost of Bobby Jones. But Scott finally broke through and became the first Australian to win a green jacket thanks to the two biggest clutch putts of his career, the second of which bested Angel Cabrera in a playoff.

Enough with Captain America and Thor and Iron Man and Ultron. Enough with mall cops. Enough with Fury Road and the Furious crew, and enough with "The Rock. " (Although San Andreas , Dwayne Johnson's mega-temblor pic, definitely rocks.) Summer doesn't have to be the exclusive domain of comic-book superheroes, mutants of the post-apocalypse, disaster epics, effects-driven spectacles, and Melissa McCarthy turning into a spy. If you're looking for an antidote - many, in fact - to the bloat and bluster of the studios' summer lineup, alternatives are coming to theaters (and other viewing platforms)

TOM CARPUS has had less hectic weeks. That's what happens when you become part of a moment. He's the head golf professional at Kennett Square Golf & Country Club. He's also a rules expert who has worked at 18 PGA Championships and a couple of Ryder Cups. He was doing his fourth Masters, where in the second round he was one of the three rules officials stationed at the 15th hole. In case you missed it, Tiger Woods had to take a drop there after hitting the flagstick with his third shot to the par 5 and watching his ball richochet into the water.

DORAL, Fla. - Playing only his sixth round of the year, Adam Scott faced a strong test Thursday at Doral and never looked better. In fierce wind on the TPC Blue Monster at Doral, Scott kept the ball in play and then hung on for a 6-under-par 66 that gave him a share of the lead with Jason Dufner in the Cadillac Championship. It was a battle all day for Rory McIlroy in his first event as No. 1 in the world. He wound up with a 73 in the World Golf Championships event. Tiger Woods wasn't much better.

THE METS, as everyone in Philly knows, are a bunch of losers. But, if a certain scorned woman keeps a promise, the entire team is about to score. And we mean SCORE.   Back in 2004, Anna Benson, wife of then-Mets pitcher Kris Benson, told shock jock Howard Stern that if she ever caught her husband cheating she would "do everybody on his whole team," including the coaches and groundskeepers. Well guess what? That's right, old Kris was caught warming up in the wrong bullpen.

There are many ways to consume Jason Schwartzman's new movie, The Overnight , opening Friday at the Ritz Five. Watching it in a public place where others can happen by - say, an office right before you are set to interview star Schwartzman - is not the best way to experience the surprisingly sweet sex romp about considerably more than sex. "I know that feeling," Schwartzman said. "I was on an airplane, and I was in between two people. The woman on my left was really old. I was watching some movie, and it had a crazy sex scene.

LYTHAM ST. ANNES, England - Ernie Els kept feeling that something special could happen in the British Open, and it did. But only after a collapse by Adam Scott that no one imagined. Four shots ahead with four holes to play - after eight consecutive holes with nothing worse than par - Scott bogeyed them all and had to fight back tears on the 18th green Sunday as the magnitude of his meltdown began to sink in. Els, who started the final round 6 shots behind, finished off a flawless back nine with a 15-foot birdie putt for a 2-under-par 68 that looked as if it would do little more than lock up another runner-up finish at Royal Lytham & St. Annes.

PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. - Sergio Garcia made seven straight putts - six of them for birdie - on his way to a 7-under 65 to match his best score at The Players Championship. That gave him a 1-shot lead over Tiger Woods, who again made short work of the par 5s and posted his second straight 67. Woods broke his own 36-hole record at TPC Sawgrass by 6 shots and can't find much wrong with his game at the moment. Garcia ran off five straight birdies, ending the streak with putts from 20 feet and 25 feet, and then he added a 40-foot birdie putt on the par-3 eighth.

THE MEEK might inherit the Earth, but the meek won't win this U.S. Open. Watered greens Wednesday night and a half-inch of rain Thursday night helped Martin Kaymer stand at 10-under after two rounds, an Open record and six better than second-place Brendan Todd. Only 13 golfers were within nine shots of him, and only Keegan Bradley (2-under) and Rory McIlroy (1-under) have major championships on their resumés. Receptive greens have rewarded Kaymer's accurate play, and they might remain through the weekend.

AUGUSTA, Ga.- In 1963, Jack Nicklaus became the youngest Masters champion. Seventeen years later, Seve Ballesteros became the youngest. And seventeen years after that, Tiger Woods took the record lower. That was 17 years ago. For a while, it sure looked as if 20-year-old Jordan Spieth was going to keep the timeline intact. He was trying to make a whole bunch of history. Youngest to win this major. Youngest to win any major in 83 years. Second Masters rookie to get a green jacket since 1935.

AUGUSTA, Ga. - Entering the interview room wearing a green jacket after the final round of the 2012 Masters, Bubba Watson left no doubt that winning the tournment meant everything to him. What Watson probably didn't realize was how much his life would change. With the demands on his time, the continuing euphoria about his initial major championship and learning how "to be a good dad," he experienced a lull in his success that extended through the 2013 season. Now, however, Watson appears at ease and confident and it's showing in his play.

AUGUSTA, Ga. - As you may have heard, Tiger Woods is not playing in the Masters this week because of his recent back surgery, robbing the patrons of a chance to see the dominant golfer of an era that began with Woods' first green jacket back in 1997 and continued through his 14th major title in the 2008 U.S. Open. Woods' chief challengers from that period - Phil Mickelson (43 years old), Ernie Els (44), Jim Furyk (43), Steve Stricker (47), and Vijay Singh (51) - may be on, or close to reaching, the back nine of their careers, and the players ready to represent the next generation of greats are lining up. Some qualify thanks to victories in major championships: Rory McIlroy (24)

AUGUSTA, Ga. - Bill Haas has played in the Masters four previous times. He'd never broken 70, never finished better than 20th and never been higher than 11th after a round. His best finish in 12 other major starts as a professional was 12th at the 2011 PGA. But he has won five times since 2010, including the 2011 Tour Championship, with the most recent coming last July. Yesterday at Augusta National, the 31-year-old South Carolinian opened with a 4-under-par 68 to grab a one-shot lead over defending champion Adam Scott, 2012 winner Bubba Watson and Louis Oosthuizen, the guy Watson beat in a playoff after 18 holes.

AUGUSTA, Ga. - Since playing in his first Masters just three years ago at the age of 23, Jason Day has twice walked most of the back nine at Augusta National Golf Club on Sunday with a chance to have a green jacket slipped onto his shoulders. After these near-misses - a tie for second in 2011 and a third-place finish in 2013 - Day gets another chance to break through for his first major championship when the Masters begins Thursday. This year, such an achievement comes with an extra benefit: the No. 1 world ranking.

The Masters this year welcomes its largest rookie class since 1935, when it was two years old and known as the Augusta National Invitation Tournament. The group of 23 contestants is considered to be one of the most talented ever and leads to anticipation that a player will win the event in his initial try for the first time since Fuzzy Zoeller in 1979. Then again, this is the Masters, the year's first major, the Augusta National Golf Club, the tradition, and the rich history of great golfers who have won there.
