Thirty years before she played Morticia Addams on screen, a preteen Anjelica Huston stood in front of the bathroom mirror pretending to be the slinky ghoul with the almond eyes and arched eyebrows. The future model, actor, and memoirist had a morbid streak as wide as the Irish Sea. One of her favorite books, she writes in A Story Lately Told: Coming of Age in Ireland, London, and New York (Scribner, 242 pages, $16.42), the first volume of her two-part memoir, was a collection of Charles Addams cartoons.

The fifth annual Exelon Invitational, hosted by Jim Furyk, has a new home. No date has been set for this year's event, but it will be held at Hartefeld National Golf Club in Avondale, Pa. Last June, for the second straight year, it was played at nearby at Inniscrone G.C. In the late 1990s, Hartefeld hosted the PGA Senior Tour's Philadelphia stop for 2 years. Last year, Furyk was joined by John Daly, David Toms and Matt Kuchar for an 18-hole skins match worth $280,000.

The PGA Tour is known for the motto "These guys can play. " Obviously, it's a saying that has no age limit. Of the challengers going into today's final round of the SEI Pennsylvania Classic, quite a few are in the 40-something category. Three of them - Dan Forsman (44), Jeff Sluman (45) and John Huston (41) - are in a tie for fourth, 3 strokes off the lead of Billy Andrade. Mark O'Meara (45) could have been in that fourth-place group but for a bogey at the 18th. Olin Browne (43)

For a couple of 22-year-old stars, Sergio Garcia and Charles Howell III looked like a couple of kids slinging dirt in the sandbox. Their drives sailed into the rough. Their approach shots didn't even scare the greens. Garcia made back-to-back bogeys. Howell bogeyed three out of four holes, his only par coming when he hit a shot off the cart path. In a marquee match between two of golf's brightest young stars, Garcia made one fewer mistake yesterday to advance to the third round in the Match Play Championship with a 1-up victory in Carlsbad, Calif.

Nick Price may be a little further down the leader board than he would like after three rounds of the PGA Championship, but he is counting on his experience in major championships to assist him in today's final round. Price has captured two PGAs and one British Open in his career. Of the 13 players within seven shots of the lead going into today, only he and 54-hole co-leader Tiger Woods have won majors. "It's a different feeling playing the back nine on the last day when you're in contention in a major championship," said Price, who fired a 69 for a three-round score of 210, five shots off the lead.

Jay Sigel's "only bad shot of the day" almost gave the Kaanapali (Hawaii) Senior Classic an interesting finish yesterday. What was a comfortable three-stroke lead with two holes to play suddenly threatened to throw the tournament into a scramble finish when Sigel, from Berwyn, hit his tee shot at the par-3 17th into the water. "I hit an 8-iron and it was a 9-iron shot," he said after finishing with a 3-under-par 68 that gave him a 12-under 201 total and a two-stroke win. As it turned out, Sigel, fourth on the Senior PGA Tour money list, handled the double-bogey to become the tournament's first wire-to-wire winner.

Michael Bradley regrouped after missing an 8-inch putt on the 11th hole and won the Doral-Ryder Open golf tournament in Miami yesterday. "I still don't know what happened," Bradley said of the missed putt. "I went through my routine. I was trying, but it did a 360-degree horseshoe. " Amazingly, on a wind-blown day, it was Bradley's only bogey as he closed with a 71 and finished at 10-under-par 278, one stroke better than John Huston and Billy Mayfair. It was Bradley's second career victory.

In rewriting one of the oldest records on the PGA Tour and giving the final Hawaiian Open an appropriate farewell, John Huston wasn't thinking about the mark. Huston put his stamp on the Tour on yesterday with a birdie on the 72nd hole to close out the 33-year-old tournament with a 28-under-par 260. That broke the Tour's 27-under mark set shared by Ben Hogan and Mike Souchak and easily breezed past the 23-under record for the tournament in Honolulu. The Tour record for total score for a 72-hole event, 257, wasn't quite within Huston's reach.

He wears a 42 long, just in case the folks who make those green jackets want a head start. They might even want to make that a bulk order. Sure, Tiger Woods is only 21. And this is his first major as a professional. And 36 holes remain. But this much is certain: It's a good thing for the other golfers he shot 40 on the front nine Thursday, or the Masters would be unofficially over, if it isn't already. Greg Norman proved a year ago anything can happen at Augusta National, especially on the weekend.
