J OURNEYMAN KEN DUKE made a 2 1/2-foot birdie putt on the second playoff hole yesterday to beat Chris Stroud at the Travelers Championship in Cromwell, Conn., and earn his first PGA Tour victory. Stroud had chipped in from 51 feet on the 18th hole to force the playoff. But the 44-year-old Duke made the better approach shot on the second extra hole, bouncing his ball in front of the flag and rolling it close. "I've knocked on the door a lot and here we are," said Duke, who turned pro in 1994.

THEY MADE a deal among themselves. The sacrifice would be great. No tweeting. No texting. No cell phones. No sneaking out to see girlfriends. No family dinners. The local players on the Duke lacrosse team were going to treat this Memorial Day weekend like monks in a monastery. The reward was pretty gratifying. After some early tension and a five-goal hole, Duke battled back to win its second NCAA men's lacrosse national championship with a sterling, 16-10 victory over perennial powerhouse Syracuse in front of 28,224 at Lincoln Financial Field.

Everything will be fine, Duke's Brian Dailey thought Monday as he watched Jordan Wolf score a goal, raise his arms, and pump his gloved right fist. The seventh-seeded Blue Devils had stumbled into a 5-0 hole in the NCAA Division I men's lacrosse final, but all doubt seemed to dissipate in the second quarter while Wolf celebrated in the northeast corner of Lincoln Financial Field. A former Lower Merion High star, Wolf finished with four goals, but none more important than the first one, as he steadied Duke and guided his team to its first national title since 2010 in a 16-10 win over top-seeded Syracuse.

It started with a phone call between old friends. Duke lacrosse coach John Danowski had heard that a faceoff guy from Chaminade High School on Long Island was enrolling in the fall, but that was all he knew. He hadn't scouted him or spoken to him. Danowski called Jack Moran, the longtime Chaminade coach, to find out whether it was true. Their conversation three years ago set into motion a process that culminated Monday at Lincoln Financial Field with Duke's national championship victory over Syracuse.

It was late Saturday as coach John Danowski and his Duke assistants rolled through game footage in their Center City hotel. They had finished the first three-quarters of the afternoon's NCAA men's lacrosse semifinal win over Cornell when their players entered for a scheduled 11 p.m. team meeting. The coach said he did not do this on purpose, but it gave the coach a chance to place a lasting image in his team's memory. Together they watched Cornell rattle off seven fourth-quarter goals and just fall short of toppling Duke.

Barely survive and advance. That's what seventh seed Duke did Saturday in the NCAA men's lacrosse Division I semifinal at Lincoln Financial Field. Holding off charging Cornell, the Blue Devils escaped with a 16-14 victory in the first of the two semifinal games. After opening up a 14-6 cushion, Duke (15-5) clung to a one-goal lead with 53 seconds remaining. After winning a faceoff, the Blue Devils called timeout. When play resumed, Cornell moved goalie A.J. Fiore away from the net to insert an extra defenseman.

With sticks in their hands, the three Conestoga youth lacrosse teammates sat, nearly a decade ago, in the green seats of Lincoln Financial Field's Section 101. Playing lacrosse in college was not even a thought then, Brian Dailey said. So as Dailey, Tanner Scott, and Jamie Ikeda watched Duke lose to Johns Hopkins in the 2005 NCAA final, they had no idea they were glimpsing into their future. Now Duke teammates, the three will return to the Linc on Saturday afternoon when the Blue Devils face Cornell in a national semifinal at 2:30 p.m. "We definitely dreamed about it," said Ikeda, a freshman defender.

Unseeded but not quite an underdog, Cornell heads to Lincoln Financial Field on Saturday in search of its first berth in the NCAA men's lacrosse title game since 2009. The Big Red fell in the Ivy League semifinals before rolling to two NCAA tournament wins over Maryland and Ohio State by a combined score of 32-14. Coach Ben DeLuca said he's not quite sure if the winning margins will be an advantage in the final four. "We're coming in with a great amount of confidence and we draw upon the experience we had throughout the season," DeLuca said.

Duke and Denver will join Cornell and top-seeded Syracuse in the NCAA Division I men's lacrosse Final Four this weekend at Lincoln Financial Field. David Lawson scored his career-best fifth goal with 2 minutes, 16 seconds remaining to lift seventh-seeded Duke to a 12-11 win over No. 2 Notre Dame (11-5) in the quarterfinals Sunday in Indianapolis. In their seventh consecutive trip to the Final Four, the Blue Devils (14-5) will play Cornell at 2:30 p.m. Saturday at the Linc. Duke won the national championship in 2010.
