BETHESDA, Md. - Bo Van Pelt kept bogeys off his card and picked up an extra shot when his wedge spun back into the hole for an eagle on Thursday for the lead in the AT&T National. On a day when the temperature was in the 90s and only seven players managed a score in the 60s, Van Pelt opened with a 4-under 67 on the venerable Blue Course to grab a 1-shot lead over Vijay Singh, Brendon De Jonge and Jimmy Walker, who bogeyed his final hole. Tiger Woods was never under par in the afternoon and opened with a 1-over 72. The AT&T National is inmaryland after two years at Aronimink in Newtown Square in 2010 and 2011.

Down in the dumps after missing yet another short putt, Pat Hurst played her next seven holes in 6-under par and finished at 6-under 67 for for a share of the lead with Ji Young Oh in the first round of the U.S. Women's Open in Edina, Minn., yesterday. "I wasn't expecting much, and I guess this week I wasn't expecting much," Hurst said. "I just want to go out and play the best I can. I've been hitting the ball really well, just not scoring. If I can keep that flat stick going, it's going to be good.

Michelle Wie accomplished something in her ancestral homeland she had failed to do in seven previous tries elsewhere: The American teen made the cut at a men's tournament. With huge crowds cheering for the player they cherish as a "big sister," Wie was at 5-under-par 139 after two rounds, tied for 17th (six shots out of the lead) in the Asian Tour's SK Telecom Open in Incheon, South Korea. Wie, 16, shot a 3-under 69 in the second round to make the cut by five strokes. No woman has made the cut on the PGA Tour since Babe Zaharias at the 1945 Tucson Open.

ATLANTA - Tiger Woods sure didn't look intimidated Thursday in the Tour Championship. Woods kept the ball in play at East Lake and chipped in for one of his six birdies on his way to a 4-under 66 that gave him a share of the lead with Justin Rose. It was the first step toward what Woods hopes is another FedEx Cup title, and another $10 million bonus. Rory McIlroy, playing with Woods for the fifth time in these playoffs, saved par on the last hole for a 69. The week began with Greg Norman saying that Woods was intimidated by McIlroy, a suggestion that both players found amusing.

Furyk made seven birdies through 10 holes at East Lake - including seven 3s to start the round - until he missed a few greens on the back nine that slowed his momentum. He wound up with a 6-under 64, giving him a 1-shot lead over Justin Rose going into the weekend at the Tour Championship. His 7-under 133 gives him an outside shot at the FedEx Cup title and its $10 million bonus.

AUGUSTA, Ga. – Phil Mickelson again found no magic in his putter during Saturday's third round of the Masters and fell back to 9 strokes behind 54-hole leader Rory McIlroy, but he didn't give up hope of repeating as champion. "On Sunday, a lot can happen," Mickelson said after a 71 left him in a tie for 18th place at 213. "I'm not going to count myself out. I'm going to go out [later Saturday] and do whatever work I need to give myself the best round, a hot round [Sunday]

Greg Biffle was caught speeding on pit road, had another bad stop, and ran out of gas while leading - twice. Biffle overcame all the miscues yesterday at Las Vegas Motor Speedway to snap his 76-race winless streak, capturing the Sam's Town 300 race partly because almost every other driver had similar issues while leading. "It was definitely not short of action," said Biffle, who last won a Nationwide Series race at California in February 2008. Carl Edwards, his teammate, surged into the lead for a two-lap overtime sprint to the finish, but Biffle was able to regain the gas pressure and snatch the lead back from Edwards, who finished second.

BETHESDA, Md. - The flight of his shot into the 18th green was so pure that Tiger Woods immediately started walking and twirled his club, knowing that it effectively wrapped up another win at the AT&T National. Making it even more special was the sound of thousands of fans at the Congressional Country Club to see it. One day after spectators were kept away from the course because of debris from a violent wind storm, they returned Sunday in full force and got what they expected - Woods in his red shirt, outlasting Bo Van Pelt in a back-nine duel, and posing with another trophy.

AUGUSTA, Ga. - The next major is two months from now, when the U.S. Open goes back to the Olympic Club in San Francisco. The last time it was there, in 1998, Tiger Woods tied for 18th as a 22-year-old. This time he will be heading there as a guy who hasn't added any legs of the Grand Slam to his resume since getting his third national championship in 2008. He came here with great expectations, after getting his first PGA Tour victory in 21/2 years just two weeks ago. The four-time Masters winner leaves on a renewed quest for more answers.

It's nice to be able to play golf with the mind-set of K.J. Choi - grind it out hole-by-hole, then add it up at the end. Choi was so focused on that method Friday that when he signed his scorecard at the end of the second round of the AT&T National, it added up to 64 - tying the Aronimink Golf Club course record - and gave him a 2-stroke lead at the midway point of the $6.2 million tournament. Choi, who won this event at Congressional Country Club in 2007, closed on an incredible roll with five birdies on his final six holes, four of them in succession, to equal the 64 that Justin Rose carded in the second round of the 2010 AT&T National.
