And just like that, the rains finally stopped, the skies cleared a little, the small committee of worried tournament volunteers stopped secretly building an ark, and the 64th Senior PGA Championship got under way yesterday. It was a beautiful thing. "Biggest attendance for a Thursday in the history of the Senior PGA," said tournament director Jason Soucy, who had worried that iffy weather might prompt many fans to blow off the first day. Not that it will matter in the grand scheme of things, but the lead after the first round was shared by a trio of mudders who slopped it around the Aronimink track at 68, 2-under par: John Jacobs, Bobby Wadkins and Florida club pro Mike San Filippo.

When Aronimink Golf Club decided not to host the 1993 PGA Championship, the Philadelphia region may have lost more than a major golf tournament and the $30 million in revenues the week-long event could generate. Philadelphia now may find itself harder pressed to lure back professional golf, either for special occasions or for an annual PGA tour stop. "Obviously, there's a sizable economic loss," David Brenner, head of the Philadelphia Sports Congress, said yesterday. Brenner and his agency in 1988 helped Aronimink secure the '93 event from the PGA of America, sponsor of the PGA Championship, one of golf's four major tournaments.

Aronimink Golf Club is back in good graces with both the PGA of America and the United States Golf Association and once again thinking about hosting golf's premier events. Aronimink, in Newtown Square, asked to be relieved of its host role for the 1993 PGA Championship over its lack of minority members in the wake of the racial discrimination controversy that erupted in 1990 at Shoal Creek Golf Club, outside Birmingham, Ala. Aronimink will host its first major championship since 1977, the U.S. Junior Amateur, beginning Tuesday.

Aronimink Golf Club in Newtown Square decided last night to withdraw as host of the 1993 PGA Championship, saying it could not comply with professional golf's new minority-membership requirements for at least seven years. The club's board voted last night to ask out of its contract with the PGA of America, sole sponsor of the PGA Championship, one of golf's four major tournaments. In so doing, Aronimink, one of the area's oldest and most prestigious private courses, became the first scheduled host of a major tournament to relinquish its role because it could not accommodate minority members in time for its tournament.

The tournament is still almost a year away, but the campaign to create excitement for next year's Senior PGA Championship at Aronimink Golf Club has officially begun. A "natural fit" is how Roger Warren, secretary of the PGA of America, which stages the tournament, described Aronimink last week during a kickoff luncheon at the posh and private club in Newtown Square, Delaware County. The Senior PGA, set for June 5-8, is one of the biggest tournaments for the 50-plus circuit, along with the U.S. Senior Open.

After Suzi Spotleson tapped in a par putt at the 18th, Katie Edelblut dropped her head and went to give Spotleson a congratulatory handshake. But no congratulations were in order. Not yet. "Oh my God, I thought I just lost on 18," Edelblut said as she walked off the green. "We're playing 36? Sounds good. I still have a chance, then. " Instead of winning the Women's Match Play Championship right then, Spotleson carried a one-hole lead into the second 18 of the Championship Flight.

The thought - once the AT&T National, a PGA Tour event hosted by Tiger Woods, left Aronimink Golf Club for the last time in 2011 - was that the Newtown Square facility wouldn't entertain another professional golf tournament unless it was a major championship. But when the tour contacted Aronimink last fall and asked club officials their degree of interest in hosting the third of four annual FedEx Cup playoff events, the BMW Championship in 2018, president Steven Zodtner said his immediate reaction was: "Let's talk.

That event, the third leg of the FedExCup playoffs, is held at different venues throughout the country.

PINEHURST, N.C. - Have 12 months really gone by since Justin Rose beat Phil Mickelson on the closing nine at Merion to win his first major? A dozen years from now, those Father's Day freeze-frames will remain just as vivid. "I can't believe it's a year," said Rose, who this week at Pinehurst No. 2 will try to become only the second man in just over six decades, and first in a quarter-century, to go back-to-back in the U.S. Open, the PGA Tour's second major of the season. "A lot of good stuff has happened in that year.
