SERGIO GARCIA won the rain-shortened Johor (Malaysia) Open on Sunday, closing with an 11-under 61 for a three-stroke victory in the Asian Tour's season-ending event. The 32-year-old Spanish star finished at 18-under 198 at Horizon Hills for his second victory of the year and 24th international title. He also won the PGA Tour's Wyndham Championship in August. Garcia had the lowest final round by a winner in Asian Tour history. He birdied seven of the first nine holes to make the turn in 7-under 29, added birdies on 13 and 14 before a long rain delay, then returned to make it four in a row with birdies on 15 and 16. American Jonathan Moore also shot a 61 to finish second.

In Philadelphia, visiting dignitaries may get a miniature Liberty Bell from the mayor. But yesterday in Fujisawa City, a resort town of 370,000 about 50 kilometers from Tokyo, mere trinkets wouldn't do. Fujisawa City Mayor Katsuo Yamamoto presented members of the Philadelphia Orchestra with some woodcuts and colorful swaths of silk painted with the image of Mount Fuji. And the Philadelphians reciprocated with copies of their latest recordings. "Perhaps my daughter will get these CDs," said the mayor, adding that she is a budding violist.

A review Saturday of Charles Dutoit's last concert as artistic chief of the Philadelphia Orchestra residency in Saratoga Springs, N.Y., referred to a 2011 European tour as his first with the orchestra. It will be his second tour with the orchestra. The first was an Asian tour this year. The Inquirer wants its news report to be fair and correct in every respect, and regrets when it is not.

There was a time when Greg Lesher got so fed up with golf, he didn't know if he'd even try to regain his PGA tour card. "I didn't play for three months, and I didn't miss it all," Lesher said yesterday of his 1994 golf sabbatical, which he spent working with his father at the family's Mack Truck dealership in Lebanon, Pa. Lesher did return, playing the Asian tour for the last two years. And yesterday, he carded back-to-back 2-under-par 70s to qualify for next week's U.S. Open at Oakland Hills Country Club in Birmingham, Mich.

A well-known auto-racing publicist was arrested yesterday and charged with statutory rape and soliciting a minor for sex over the Internet, authorities said. Richard Norman "Chip" Williams Jr., of Mooresville, N.C., was arrested in the parking lot of a Guilford County church where he had arranged to meet what he believed was a 14-year-old girl with whom he had been conversing in an Internet chat room, Sheriff B.J. Barnes said. Williams' firm, Williams Company of America, Inc., handles media and public relations for drivers Kyle Petty, Bobby Labonte, Derrike Cope and John Andretti, among others.

The budget of the Philadelphia Orchestra must be taking a beating in these last few weeks of Christoph Eschenbach's tenure. Extra money was spent on augmented firepower last week in Mahler's Symphony No. 8, with revenue lost on seats given over to choirs. But artistic ambition is not one of those assets that figures easily into a business equation, and it shouldn't. This week's program assembled by Eschenbach - his penultimate as music director before leaving town on the orchestra's Asian tour - is stacked two-thirds deep with new scores.

Vijay Singh came to the United States as a long-limbed, smooth-swinging, hard-working golfer from Fiji whom few people had ever heard of. That didn't last long. Singh found the winner's circle in only his seventh PGA tour event of 1993, shooting a final-round 66 and then winning a playoff to capture the Buick Classic on Sunday in Harrison, N.Y. Not only did the victory earn him a check for $180,000, it also gave him a two-year exemption on the U.S. tour. "I felt that I had been playing well but had given away one or two tournaments earlier," Singh, 30, said yesterday between a practice round for his first U.S. Open and a trip to the range at Baltusrol Golf Club.

Everybody who had the Emlyn Aubrey-Danny Briggs quinella in the SEI Pennsylvania Classic opening-day pool should proceed directly to the front of the nearest lottery line. The Force is with you. Maybe you expected something along the lines of Davis Love-Vijay Singh. Sorry, they're not here. Tom Lehman and Kirk Triplett, the next-best things on the PGA Tour money list, did tee it up. They shot 73 and 74, respectively. Aubrey and Briggs carded 6-under-par 65s yesterday at Paoli's Waynesborough Country Club for a two-stroke lead after the opening round of the first PGA Tour event in this area in two decades.

Doug Reed and his wife sat on the windswept patio of Wyncote Golf Club, taking a hot dog break from what would become two hours of staring at the scoreboard, where the results of open qualifying for the Nike Philadelphia Classic were posted yesterday. Reed hoped his 77 would be good enough to earn one of 14 berths in the $200,000 Philmont Country Club event that starts Thursday. He had reason to be optimistic: The wind was blowing shots all over the links-style course. But, alas, nothing over a 74 got in, and the eight people who carded 75s entered a playoff for alternate positions 1 through 8. For Reed, 36, who was in real-estate for 10 years in his hometown of Naples, Fla., before re-dedicating himself to golf in January, it was the latest disappointment in a season full of them.

After learning Chinese, the complicated terminology used in the huddle doesn't seem so foreign to Eagles tight end Chad Lewis. Lewis, who lived in Taichung, Taiwan, from 1990 to '92 while on a Mormon mission, left yesterday for an 11-day visit to promote the NFL in Asia. Lewis will visit Thailand, Singapore and Taiwan. The 30-year-old will teach a clinic in Thailand, throw out the first pitch at a professional baseball game in Taiwan, and give interviews to Asian reporters.

Alex Ng, a tailor here who sings part-time in an a cappella group, is a passionate lover of classical music. That was obvious enough by the look of glee on his face Tuesday night as Philadelphia Orchestra music director Wolfgang Sawallisch signed his program after the concert here. "Thank you, Maestro!" Ng exclaimed as he bounded past the line of fellow autograph-seekers in the conductor's room of the ultra-modern concert hall at the foot of the world's tallest buildings. "I have about 300 CDs," Ng said.

So where have you gone, Annika Sorenstam? At 28, six months removed from clinching her second LPGA Player of the Year award in three seasons, she's still stalking her first victory in 1998. Last week, she tied for 10th at the Sara Lee Classic in Old Hickory, Tenn., where she closed with a 66, the best final-round score, to get within two shots of a four-way playoff. But as is the syndrome with Tiger Woods on the men's side, anything less than first place has basically become irrelevant.
