Handicapping 101 Or, trying to sort out some of the usual suspects: Tiger Woods (5-1): You were expecting maybe Michelle Wie? Luke Donald (10-1): He's majorless, but also No. 1 in the rankings. Lee Westwood (12-1): Also majorless, has come close a lot lately. Rory McIlroy (13-1): Defending champ had missed three straight cuts before losing late at St. Jude's Classic. Not many repeat in this major. Phil Mickelson (15-1): Last time we saw him, he was shooting 79, but is a five-time runner-up.

IRVING, Texas - Keegan Bradley shot a 10-under-par 60 to lead the field in the opening round of the Byron Nelson Championship on Thursday. Bradley broke the TPC Four Seasons course record and matched the best round ever in the Nelson. He equaled Phil Mickelson's opening 60 at Phoenix as the best round on the tour this season. Charl Schwartzel was 3 strokes back, Robert Karlsson, Harris English and Ted Potter Jr. shot 64, and two-time major champion Angel Cabrera, Ryan Palmer, and Camilo Villegas were at 65. Guan Tianlang, the 14-year-old amateur from China, shot 70 in his second tournament since making the cut at the Masters.

PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. - Ian Poulter ran off four birdies around the turn and Martin Laird was the only player without a bogey on his card. That was enough for them to share the lead Thursday in The Players Championship at the TPC Sawgrass. Poulter birdied all of the par 5s on his way to a 7-under 65. Laird played in the afternoon and relied on his putting for some critical par saves to match Poulter. They were a shot ahead of Blake Adams. Phil Mickelson, inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame on Monday, had a 71. Rory McIlroy hit in the water on the island-green 17th for double bogey and shot even par 72. Meanwhile, Tiger Woods shot a three-over 74. Woods once went nearly eight years without missing the cut. Now he's in danger of missing the cut for the second straight week.

NEW YORK - Brandt Snedeker had nothing more than big hopes and another strong finish when he left the TPC Boston, expecting to wait deep into the night for a phone call from Ryder Cup captain Davis Love III that would determine if he was on the U.S. team. "I had no clue one way or another," Snedeker said Tuesday. "Got on the plane, got here to Indianapolis, and got a voice mail from Davis just asking if I brought my putter from Boston and if I wanted to be on the team. I was just so excited.

GUAN TIANLANG is an eighth-grader from China who barely weighs 125 pounds and doesn't hit the golf ball far enough to reach some par 4s. The next stop for the 14-year-old prodigy will be the Masters, where he will tee it up with Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson and Bubba Watson at Augusta National. Guan completed a wire-to-wire victory Sunday in the Asia-Pacific Amateur Championship, making a 5-foot par putt on the final hole at Amata Spring Country Club for a one-shot win that earned him a Masters invitation.

MEDINAH, Ill. - Erasing some of their worst Ryder Cup memories, the Europeans wore the image of Seve Ballesteros on their sleeves and played their hearts out Sunday at Medinah Country Club to match the greatest comeback in history and head home with that precious gold trophy. Europe got its payback for 1999 at Brookline, when the Americans roared back from the same 10-6 deficit. This rally was even more remarkable, carried out in front of a raucous American crowd that began its chants of "USA!"

Henrik Stenson was famous for reasons he never imagined. Two months ago, he was best known as the Swede who stripped down to nothing but his underwear and a golf glove while playing from a water hazard at Doral. Out of curiosity, he searched the Internet and found 143 articles, more news than he ever got for his game. "I guess I got as much attention off that thing as from my results the last 10 years," he said. His golf was all the rage yesterday at The Players Championship in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla. With a final round that was close to perfect, Stenson was the only player to keep bogeys off his card on his way to a 6-under 66 that gave him a four-shot victory, the 10th of his career.

Lee Westwood took some money off Ian Poulter earlier this week during a practice round prior to the Masters. On Saturday, the two friends from England again will play together for a chance at significantly higher stakes the next day, like a green jacket. Westwood and Poulter, both of whom are listed in the top 10 of the World Golf Rankings, fired two of the best rounds in Friday's second round and found themselves tied at the top with scores of 8-under-par 136 at the halfway point.

MEDINAH, Ill. - Rory McIlroy has gone from being a rookie in the Ryder Cup to a marked man at Medinah. McIlroy is the first European in nearly 20 years to go into the Ryder Cup as the No. 1 player in the world, although the star power of this 23-year-old from Northern Ireland is defined by much more than a computer ranking. He already has won two majors, with a record score in the U.S. Open last year at Congressional and a record margin at the PGA Championship last month at Kiawah Island.

MEDINAH, Ill. - Phil Mickelson and Keegan Bradley helped stake the U.S. team to its biggest lead in the Ryder Cup in more than 30 years. Ian Poulter, eyes bulging and fists shaking with every clutch putt, at least gave Europe a lot of momentum over the final frantic hour Saturday at Medinah. Right when it looked as if the Americans were a lock to win back the cup, Poulter birdied his last five holes to win a crucial point and keep everyone guessing. Steady chants of "USA! USA!" gave way to snappy serenades of "Ole, Ole" as both sides trudged to the team rooms in darkness to prepare for 12 singles matches on Sunday.

MEDINAH, Ill. - Keegan Bradley made Friday at the Ryder Cup feel like the best day of his life, and it wasn't too shabby for the rest of the Americans. Bradley led a strong performance by rookies on both teams at Medinah by teaming with Phil Mickelson for two wins against Europe's best two partnerships. Even with Tiger Woods getting shut out on opening day for the fourth time, the United States took a big step toward regaining the cup by taking a 5-3 lead. Leading the way was Bradley, the former PGA champion whom Mickelson took under his wing last year for a series of money games at the majors to prepare the New England kid for moments like this.

AUGUSTA, Ga. - Last April, he returned to Augusta National to begin the rest of his golfing life, coming off a rather cumbersome offseason. A year later, Tiger Woods comes back to the Masters, where he's a four-time winner, as an enigma wrapped around a gargantuan question mark stuck inside a punch line. The only certainty is that he's a poor facsimile of his old Terminator self. Yet this being Augusta, well, who knows? Even so, at this stage in the reclamation project, would it be proper etiquette to actually label him a long shot?
