In summers past, Tracy Bolger divided her attention between soccer, basketball and golf. A recent graduate of Haddonfield, she is now concentrating on golf, the sport she will play in college. Bolger received a golf scholarship to St. John's University in New York, which will start its first women's team. When the team gets together for a few fall tournaments, Bolger - coming off a number of summer tourneys - will be well-prepared. This month, she qualified for the second level - or First Flight - of the Philadelphia Women's Amateur, and advanced to the semifinals at Spring-Ford Country Club in Royersford, Montgomery County.

T. C. Chen of Taiwan highlighted a 4-under-par 67 with a hole-in-one yesterday and held a 1-stroke lead after three rounds of the $600,000 Los Angeles Open. Chen, who started the day 1 shot off the lead, aced the 161-yard, par-3 6th hole with a 6-iron. He went on to finish 54 holes at the Riviera Country Club with a total of 9-under 204 in his bid for his first PGA tour victory. Danny Edwards shot a 68 and held second at 205. Ben Crenshaw fashioned a 66 to join Bobby Wadkins (68)

For Tiger Woods, it was a week of ultra-intense scrutiny. It was also seven days of "fantasy land and Disney World wrapped into one. " The reigning U.S. Amateur champion, a 19-year-old freshman at Stanford, was just the fourth black to play in the Masters, 20 years after Lee Elder broke the color barrier. No detail of his first trip here was left unchronicled. Yesterday he birdied three of the last four holes, including a 3 at No. 18, for his third even-par round of 72 in the tournament.

Until a week ago, Cheryl Seamans was a young woman with daydreams about golf but a day job in accounting. That was before she won the Pennsylvania Women's Amateur. In the final match at Shannopin Country Club in Western Pennsylvania, Seamans, 23, of Holland, Bucks County, narrowly edged the national grand dame of women's amateur golf, Carol Semple Thompson, 54, winner of the state amateur title 21 times, including last year. "I was more excited than intimidated," Seamans said last week, still dumbstruck that she somehow prevailed, 1 up in 19 holes, over a living legend.

PLYMOUTH MEETING, Pa. - Senior Pete Williamson is Dartmouth's No. 1 golfer, but it's the team's fourth best golfer, sophomore Joe Maziar, who is the reason the Big Green hold the lead after the first day of the Big Five Invitational at Plymouth Country Club. Dartmouth will look to hold off Penn, Campbell (Buies Creek, N.C.), and Temple, which round out the top four teams. Dartmouth coach Rich Parker knows that the bottom of his lineup will be the key to his team's keeping the lead Sunday.

AUGUSTA, Ga. - You probably can't win a major on the first day. But you maybe can lose it. Rory McIlroy isn't leading the Masters after the first round. But he can see the guy who is. For starters, that's enough. "It was a good day," the two-time major winner said, after an opening 1-under-par 71 left him trailing by three in the year's first tournament that defines careers. "I think they set the course up very difficult today. I think everyone needed to stay patient. Anything in red numbers was good.

EGG HARBOR TOWNSHIP - Michael Johnson enjoyed the time he played in the U.S. Amateur in 2012 and wants to get that national championship feeling again at this year's U.S. Open. Johnson, who this spring became La Salle's first all-Atlantic Ten Conference selection, took the first step Monday at Hidden Creek Golf Club when he fired a 1-under-par 71 in Open local qualifying to gain one of six available spots into the next round. Alex Hicks of Cape May Court House, N.J., the runner-up in last year's Philadelphia Amateur, and Jose Garrido, coach of the Colombian national golf team, tied for medalist honors with rounds of 70 on a sunny but windy day by the Shore.

This is the life. It is golf, travel, money, and a little bit of fame. It is the LPGA, and more women are leaving college early - or skipping it all together - to turn professional and pursue their dreams. Of course, it is not nearly that simple. Or that glamorous. For those young players good enough to make it, the tour is full of pressures and frustration. It is endless travel and countless hours on the driving range and practice green. It is days, weeks and months away from family and friends.

The golf season of Bucks County pro Jon Rusk got off to a late start this year because he decided one day to work on his jump shot rather than his short game. The result: "I broke my [right] hand in February playing basketball, like an idiot," Rusk said Monday. "I didn't get a cast on it and it's still hurting a little bit. I don't know if it's healed right. " Despite the injury, Rusk, of Washington Crossing, advanced to the second stage of qualifying for next month's U.S. Open, one of four players tied for medalist honors with a 1-under-par 69 at the Springhaven Club in Wallingford.

Mark Miller knew his plan had merit. He just needed to persuade the powers that be at Christopher Dock to implement it. The idea began on the golf course, which is also where it ended happily for all involved. "A couple of years ago, I just started to play golf in the summer with a couple friends," said Miller, a senior. "Finally, in our junior year, we campaigned to have it become a varsity sport at Dock. "After it didn't go through at first [last fall], we came back again in the spring to try again.

Matt Kuchar may not quite be in Sergio Garcia territory when it comes to the Best Players Not to Win a Major, but the hottest golfer on the PGA Tour knows that he is entering the conversation. It's a double-edged sword. Kuchar has been playing well enough over the last three years to now rank in the world's top 10. But he's 34 years old, and the best-player title can weigh like an anvil the longer one fails to claim a major. "There's a lot of us in the boat - best player to not win [a major]

For Buddy Marucci, golf always has been about the courtesy, the sportsmanship, the integrity, and the ability to compete intensely but to do it the right way. It's a lesson he learned from his father, George Marucci Sr., an accountant who taught him the game at Llanerch Country Club. While he wanted his son to think his way around the course and hit excellent shots, the elder Marucci stressed the idea of being a gentleman. "My father's influence on me in golf was more about the demeanor than the skill," said Marucci, 57, of Villanova, the captain of the U.S. Walker Cup team that will take on a team from Great Britain and Ireland in the 42d matches this weekend at Merion Golf Club.

Casey Martin, who battled the PGA Tour for the right to use a golf cart in competition, was named head coach of the University of Oregon golf team yesterday. Martin, 33, takes over for Steve Nosler, who announced in March that this would be his final season. Martin had been serving as a volunteer assistant for the Ducks since the start of the season. "The thought of building a nationally competitive golf program for the University of Oregon is simply thrilling to me," Martin said.

Growing up as a junior golfer in England, Paul Casey dreamed big dreams about one day winning the British Open, especially when he got to work the leader board at Royal St. George's as a 15-year-old high school student in 1993. "We did the first hole and that was the best deal in the world," Casey recalled yesterday. "We got up early, put the names of who was coming through, and then we got to go home and watch the rest of the golf. We got paid for the privilege and slept in a tent.
