It's no secret among local golfers that the Philadelphia area has at least its share of first-rate courses. Now comes a "Top 100" ranking of courses from Golfweek magazine that suggests the region enjoys an embarrassment of riches. No fewer than 10 private courses in the region were named to Golfweek's just-released list of the country's top 100 "classical" courses, and six other courses - two of them daily-fee layouts open to the public - were ranked among the nation's top 100 "modern" courses.

Tiger Woods will have his own brand of sports drink next year under an endorsement deal announced yesterday with Gatorade that marks a couple of firsts for the world's No. 1 golfer - his first U.S. deal with a beverage company and his first licensing agreement. Gatorade said it will introduce "Gatorade Tiger" in March, with more products to follow. Woods picked out the flavors himself, with the drink available in a cherry blend, citrus blend and grape. Terms of the deal were not disclosed, although Golfweek magazine reported last month it was for 5 years and could pay Woods as much as $100 million, moving him closer to the $1 billion mark in career endorsements.

A year doesn't go by that a major golf publication doesn't rank Pine Valley or Pebble Beach as the very best course in the United States, and maybe even the entire world. How wonderful for the golfers who get to play there. But what are the top courses for the rest of us ordinary hacks who (a) are not members of Pine Valley, or (b) aren't about to raid Junior's college fund for the $350 to play Pebble Beach? How about the Golf Course at Glen Mills, the three-year-old upscale layout in Delaware County, as the best daily-fee course in Pennsylvania?

Mike "Fluff" Cowan will be back at work as a caddie in the Masters. Just not for Tiger Woods. Golfweek magazine reported on its web site last night that Cowan will be on the bag for Jim Furyk next week at Augusta National, and possibly longer than that. Furyk, who finished third on the money list last year, fired caddie Steve DuPlantis after 41/2 years and gave Cowan a call after The Players Championship. "I had a need, and there wasn't any finer man available," Furyk told Golfweek.

The Daily News covers the Open: Check out PhillyDailyNews.com's U.S. Open page for our coverage of the tournament at Merion . THE RULE is called "lift, clean and place. " Some players call it "lift, clean and cheat. " It's something the PGA Tour regularly enacts with mud on a course, so players can feel a true ball flight. But in the history of the U.S. Open, the game's governing body is "fairly certain" it has never provided players with relief from muddied golf balls - and isn't likely to start this week at Merion Golf Club, no matter how much rain has fallen.

time player in Tiger Woods, it is making a bid for TV's prime time. That is among the PGA Tour's proposals in ongoing negotiations with networks for TV contracts that begin with the 1999 season, sources close to the talks told the Associated Press. Several proposals were presented by the tour in talks that began last week with CBS, NBC, ABC, ESPN and Fox, the sources said yesterday, and commissioner Tim Finchem was waiting to see which options would fly. The possibilities included starting the season with consecutive events played in Hawaii and broadcast in prime time on the East Coast, the sources said.

First reports of the firing were reported in Golfweek newspaper, which said the wager was $1,000 at 10-to-1 odds. The Europeans won the Ryder Cup on American soil.

Golf Channel announcer Kelly Tilghman apologized on television yesterday as she returned from a two-week suspension for using the word lynch in reference to Tiger Woods. "In a recent live broadcast, I used an inappropriate word that was offensive to many," Tilghman said at the start of the Golf Channel's telecast of the Buick Invitational. "Over the last two weeks, I've taken the time to reflect and truly understand the impact of what I said. " Tilghman, Golf Channel's lead play-by-play announcer, said during its coverage of the season-opening Mercedes-Benz Championship that young golfers trying to compete with Woods, the world's top-ranked golfer whose father was black and mother is from Thailand, should "lynch him in a back alley.

Almost nine years ago, long before any talk of a Senior PGA Championship coming to Aronimink Golf Club, a small long-range planning committee from the Newtown Square club sat down for what would turn out to be a fateful meeting with a golf-course architect named Ron Prichard. Prichard, who has made a career of studying and restoring classic courses designed in the 1920s and '30s, certainly didn't need to tell anyone on the Aronimink committee about the golf course. Everyone in the room knew full well that the 300 acres beyond the doors of the grand Aronimink clubhouse were the work of the most revered architect of the first half of the 20th century, Donald Ross, who at the peak of his career in 1927 walked these very hillsides to draw up field sketches of the 18 holes he envisioned.

As golf's so-called "fifth major," The Players Championship, begins today, surprise, surprise, you've got to like Tiger Woods' chances. Not only is Woods looking more invincible than ever after last week's 11-shot victory in the Bay Hill Invitational, and not only has he won an almost inconceivable three of four tournaments this year, the No. 1 player in the world doesn't even have to worry about Nos. 2 and 3 this week. Ernie Els, No. 2 and the one guy who seems to have raised his game near Woods' stratosphere, withdrew from the tournament Tuesday, citing another flare-up of pain from a wrist injury he suffered recently while slugging a punching bag. Phil Mickelson, No. 3, is at home doing daddy duty after he and wife Amy welcomed their third child, Evan Samuel, 7 pounds, 9 ounces, into the world Sunday night.
