Jimmie Johnson was "horsing around" on top of a moving golf cart when he fell off and broke his left wrist, his team told the Associated Press yesterday. The version clarifies what happened during the celebrity tournament in Lecanto, Fla., 1 day after the initial account from Hendrick Motorsports implied that the Nextel Cup champion had fallen out of the cart. Although Hendrick officials gave no details of the accident, Johnson released a statement that said he was "in" the cart when he fell out. That account differed from one in yesterday's edition of the Citrus County (Fla.

A Philadelphia Zoo employee was killed Monday morning after a golf cart apparently fell on him, police said. Zoo communications director Dana Lombardo said the man, whose identity authorities have not disclosed, was 59 and had been a mechanic for 14 years. His duties included working on the zoo's fleet of golf carts. It was unclear to police and zoo officials how the cart ended up on top of the mechanic. "Basically, we had a really traumatic incident happen here this morning," Lombardo said.

The scene did not look like a country club golf course, but golf carts were the most popular way of getting around the thicket of cables, trucks and trailers outside the First Union Center yesterday. Two, four and six seaters carried workmen, cameramen, reporters and technicians to and from the four media pavilions. Forsaking the golf cart was Bob Covington, a technician for Reuters who zipped through the area on a new high-tech scooter. It's made of aircraft aluminum, weighs six pounds, folds in half, and holds as much as 212 pounds - about 60 pounds more than Covington.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - They chauffeured Joe Paterno into his Penn State media day news conference on a golf cart, then tried to position the cart in such a way where the press, including at least 30 photographers and TV camera people, could get a good look at him. He looked pretty good. Nine days after he was accidentally knocked down by wide receiver Devon Smith while his attention was diverted to a tackle-tight end drill on another practice field, the 84-year-old head coach remained in the cart for Tuesday's entire 20-minute session, admitting at one point, "I feel great except that I'm in a lot of pain.

KICKING THE ball on the golf course was once just a way to unleash frustration after scoring above par. Now, it's how you play the game - FootGolf, that is. FootGolf, a mash-up of soccer and golf, challenges players to kick a regulation soccer ball into a 21-inch-round hole. Cobbs Creek Golf Course on Lansdowne Avenue started offering the sport about a month ago and hasn't even had an official opening yet (that's planned for spring). But while FootGolf may be new to Philadelphia, it's been growing internationally.

Deputies found 37-year-old James Straub, of Stoneham, Mass., driving along a road. He wasn't dressed as a clown - just wearing some colorful clothing after an outing at Terry Hills Golf Course.

SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. - Two boys stood in line to use a Port-A-John when a golf cart puttered past. One squealed, "There she is!" His mother said, "Oh, look! It's Mo'ne! Mo'ne Davis!" A few yards farther, a father asked, "Mo'ne, can you stop for a picture?" "No," said the driver, before Mo'ne could answer. "We're late. " Davis was, in fact, late for the team dinner at a local chicken wing restaurant. Her Taney Dragons Little League team ate at the same chain during the regional tournament in Bristol, Conn., last week, and, well, baseball teams are superstitious.

Odds are 1 in 12,000 that a person will be struck by lightning in his or her lifetime. But if you find yourself in the shoes of David Bodkin-Parris, 14, who was hit by a bolt of bad luck Monday in Glenolden, it can change your life forever. Michael Utley knows this all too well. In May 2000, Utley, 63, was golfing in Cape Cod, Mass., when it happened. Rain and hail began to fall as the siren blared, alerting golfers to get off the course. Severe weather was coming. As Utley headed inside, a bolt hit him. "My buddies saw me fall to the ground," Utley said.

It may be hush-hush at Merion Golf Club during the early practice rounds of the U.S. Open. But there was a growing buzz - sitting in the stands behind the fairways, shuffling down Golf House Road, standing at concessions where the chattiest of spectators were sipping brews before noon. Ah, the sweet sound of gossip. And it got louder as Thursday, the first day of tournament play, drew near. Some golfer - no one knows who, of course - rented one of the homes along the golf course for more than $40,000!

Katie Holmes is again in the arms of the Catholic Church she left to join the Scientology of husband Tom Cruise. Now that TomKat are splitting up, Kat has signed up at the Parish of St. Francis Xavier in Manhattan. This tends to corroborate, though not prove, that religion was involved in the split, specifically the faith in which daughter Suri, 6, will be raised. Tom tends to marry Catholics: think of his second wife, Nicole Kidman. He learned about Scientology from his first wife, Mimi Rogers.

ELTON BRAND strode through the corridors of TD Garden dressed like a stockbroker, as amiable as a preacher. A security guard congratulated Brand on his exceptional effort in a losing cause. "Thanks," said Brand. "See you Saturday. " It was Monday. The Sixers had just lost Game 5. Brand was, in effect, assuring a Sixers win in Game 6 on Wednesday night. A return to Boston for a Game 7. Which meant that he would be a Sixer for one more game. Maybe more.

ORLANDO - Charlie Wi felt a lot better walking off the golf course compared with his previous round in Florida. So did Tiger Woods. Coming off a final round at Palm Harbor's Innisbrook in which he made a 13 on one hole, Wi hit an 8-iron over the water to six feet for birdie on the 18th for a 6-under-par 66, giving him a share of the lead with Jason Dufner on Thursday in the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill Club & Lodge. It's the fourth time Dufner has been atop the leader board after a round during the Florida swing - except that none of those rounds has been on a Sunday.
