The pungent aroma of a genuine Cuban cigar slams into the nostrils of visitors on the seventh floor of the Bel Age Hotel in Hollywood whenever David Frost is in town. Tracking the source of the smoke, one is bound to find him in a comfortable suite with a fat stogie in his mouth, a phone glued to his ear and both hands tossing clothing into a suitcase. Frost, a well-worn and stoop-shouldered gentleman of 49 with red and blue eyes, has no time to waste; he's catching a flight for New York.

Who would have guessed John Gielgud was a gossipmonger? Meticulously dapper and fit at age 88, the famed actor (whom we'll next see in "Best of Friends" this fall on PBS' "Masterpiece Theater") tells journalist David Frost, "I talk too much. " In this rare and insightful interview, conducted at the Playhouse Theater in London, Gielgud says the one thing he wished he had learned sooner in life "was to hold my tongue. " He confesses he has often talked "stupidly and impetuously" and "hurt people's feelings.

LA QUINTA, Calif. - Scott Stallings opened a 5-stroke lead in the Humana Challenge on Saturday, holing a 20-foot, downhill putt on the par-5 eighth hole for his second eagle of the round. Stallings shot a 9-under 63 to reach 22-under 194 after three days in perfect conditions in the Coachella Valley. The two-time PGA Tour winner played PGA West's Jack Nicklaus Private Course after opening with a 66 on the Arnold Palmer Private Course - the site of the final round Sunday - and shooting a 65 on Saturday at La Quinta Country Club.

What fun it would be to play tennis with David Frost - for money. Tonight (9 o'clock on Channels 12 and 39, 10 p.m. on Channels 23 and 52), Frost plays pat-a-cake with President Bush in an interview taped Dec. 19. This installment of Talking With David Frost is a humanizing outing for the President, designed to make him look like one of the fellas - the real smart one who always has a little trouble with a joke. Every now and then, Frost tries to put a little topspin on his questions, driving the President back a step or two, but Frost never presses the slightest advantage to make Bush defend himself.

David Frost, a nine-time runner-up in four years on the PGA tour, earned his first victory yesterday with a birdie on the first playoff hole to capture the $400,000 Southern Open at Columbus, Ga. Frost caught Bob Tway with a 6-foot birdie putt on the final hole of regulation play, then won the tournament when he birdied and Tway 2-putted from 10 feet. The victory was the first in three career playoffs for Frost, a South African. Both players shot final-round 67s to pass third-round leader Dave Barr and ended regulation play at 10-under-par 280. Barr, Ken Forsman and George Archer finished in a three-way tie for third place 1 stroke behind at 271. Barr had a 70, Forsman a 69 and Archer a 65. "The ultimate is to win out here; although I've accomplished a lot, this is the cherry on the cake," Frost said.

Three years after resigning from office - the only U.S. president to do so - Richard M. Nixon agreed to sit for a long conversation with David Frost, an English TV chat-show host who'd entertained a few politicians as guests, but more often could be found lobbing softballs at singers, actors, comedians. The 1977 interview, aired over four nights and watched by more than 45 million people, offered the former commander-in- chief the opportunity to shine up his tarnished image, to restore some legitimacy to a sullied reign.

NICK WATNEY missed a chance for a 59 on Sunday in his CIMB Classic victory, closing with a bogey for a course-record 10-under 61 at The Mines in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Watney finished at 22-under 262 and earned $1,098,000 in the unofficial PGA Tour event. The tournament will become a full-fledged PGA Tour event next year. Five players have shot 59 in official PGA Tour events. "I really wanted to finish strong . . . but winning the tournament was more important than a 59 for me," said Watney.

A judge ordered St. Louis Blues player Mike Danton yesterday to stop all direct contact - at least temporarily - with the man he's accused of trying to have killed: his agent and confidant, David Frost. It was the first intervention by authorities into the relationship since Danton's arrest April 16 on murder-for-hire conspiracy charges. During the past 4 weeks, Frost has claimed he has spoken frequently with Danton. And he's continually denied the government's allegation that Danton wanted him killed.

IN THIS, the season of the movie vampire, we're reminded that "Frost/Nixon" star Frank Langella is a former Dracula. Did that help him land the role of Richard Nixon in Ron Howard's new movie? It probably didn't hurt, and his background as a blood-sucker won't ease suspicions in some quarters that "Frost/Nixon" is another bashing of the disgraced Nixon, whose stock in Hollywood probably hasn't risen since Anthony Hopkins played him as a demented, noxious drunk in "Nixon.

It was the "gotcha!" heard round the world. Peter Morgan's fascinating Frost/Nixon is about David Frost's now-legendary TV interviews of Richard M. Nixon, which capped an important, shameful chapter in 20th-century U.S. history. New City Stage is giving this historical drama a riveting Philadelphia premiere; the cast is exceptionally strong, and the direction, by Aaron Cromie, is exceptionally taut. On what seems like a mad whim, the British talk show host and playboy, given to Italian shoes, Bentleys, and beautiful women, a man who knew nothing about politics but knew everything about television, wrote to ask Nixon to agree to a series of interviews.

Curtis Strange was in a group at 65 and 1997 champion Greg Norman and Paul Azinger were among those who shot 66. Sergio Garcia, the 19-year-old Spanish prodigy, was forced to withdraw and underwent minor surgery when an abscess developed above his left eye. He is expected to recover in time to play the Irish Open next month.
