With puddles in the fairway and swamps in the rough, the trick was to find high ground at Newport (R.I) Country Club. Annika Sorenstam set her sights even higher yesterday in the first round of the U.S. Women's Open, and wound up in surprisingly strange territory. With her trademark consistency that had been missing the last 4 months, and the lone birdie of the first round on the ninth hole, Sorenstam shot a 2-under 69 to join a four-way tie for the lead with Se Ri Pak, Pat Hurst and 19-year-old amateur Jane Park.

Len Mattiace had played very well at the St. Jude Classic, yet he started the final round so far back he didn't bother checking a leaderboard. That turned out to be a very wise decision. Mattiace won for the second time this year as he rallied from a seven-stroke deficit by shooting a 7-under-par 64 yesterday to win the St. Jude Classic, in Memphis, Tenn., by a stroke. He pulled off the largest come-from-behind victory since Davis Love III rallied from seven down in 2001 to win at Pebble Beach.

IRVING, Texas - Brendon Todd birdied his final two holes Friday to take a 2-stroke lead after two rounds at the Byron Nelson Championship. The birdies at Nos. 17 and 18 wrapped up a 6-under 64 and put Todd alone atop the crowded leaderboard at 8-under 132. Among eight players at 6 under were Martin Kaymer, The Players Championship winner Sunday, and Paul Casey after his record back nine. Casey was over par before matching the PGA Tour record for the best score on a back nine, an 8-under 27 with six birdies and an eagle.

RANCHO MIRAGE, Calif. - Inbee Park opened a 3-stroke lead in the Kraft Nabisco Championship, twice hitting to 21/2 feet to set up back-nine birdies in a bogey-free round. The 24-year-old South Korean shot a 5-under 67 on Saturday to reach 12 under at Mission Hills, putting her in position for her second major title and second victory of the year. She won the 2008 U.S. Women's Open and added her fourth LPGA Tour title in February in Thailand. Lizette Salas, a stroke behind Park entering the round, had a 69 to remain second.

The leaderboard had Robert Allenby flirting with golf's magic number. It was wrong, an error by the volunteer keeping his unofficial score. Allenby's 9-under 63 yesterday still was good enough to give him a two-shot lead after the opening round of the Bob Hope Chrysler Classic in Palm Desert, Calif. The leaderboard initially had him finishing with a 60, which would have been one shot off the PGA Tour record, last done by David Duval in the 1999 Hope. Mark Calcavecchia and Craig Kanada were tied for second at 65. Phil Mickelson made his 2007 debut with a 70, and defending champion Chad Campbell also had a 70. Allenby, who kept his card correctly during the round, chuckled about the scoring mixup.

From its Ben Hogan trophy room to its status as the longest-running event at its original site, the Colonial Country Club in Fort Worth, Tex., is among the most venerable stops on the PGA Tour. This week, the ol' course is playing like a pitch-and-putt. Steve Stricker shot his second straight 63 yesterday morning, giving him a 14-under-par 126 total that set records for 36 holes and for any consecutive rounds at the Crowne Plaza Invitational - yet was barely enough to top a leaderboard filled with players taking advantage of light wind and pillow-soft greens.

Coming off one of the longest breaks in his career, Tiger Woods might get another one sooner than he would like. Woods went south on the easier North Course at Torrey Pines, hitting only one fairway and having to scramble for a birdie on his final hole for a 1-under-par 71 yesterday in the Buick Invitational at San Diego. That left him six shots behind Brandt Jobe and Thomas Levet, but he will be around the cut line today playing the South Course, which was four strokes harder.

  ATLANTA - Brandt Snedeker had one of his best rounds of the year, a 6-under 64 Saturday that gave him a share of the lead at the Tour Championship. It could turn out to be a round worth $10 million. Snedeker, in control of his game despite increasing wind at tree-lined East Lake, made a collection of tough putts and used his short game to pick up a couple of other birdies to wind up atop the leaderboard with Justin Rose, who also played bogey-free for a 68. Sunday at East Lake is the final day of the FedEx Cup, and it has never been more up for grabs among so many top players.

Carl Pettersson would have to consider this a good day. He made five birdies in the 5 hours he spent on the golf course, and had only one milkshake in the 6 hours he spent inside the locker room during a rainy day at the Memorial. The best part of all was that he finished his round yesterday and was atop the leaderboard. Pettersson make up ground quickly after a 6-hour rain delay by playing bogey-free in his round of 5-under-par 67, making him the leader in the clubhouse by two shots with more than two-thirds of the field unable to finish the second round.

ROBBY BRUNS, in his second summer working as a seasonal assistant at Merion, barely survived the 36-hole cut in the PGA Professional National Championship at Philadelphia Cricket Club. That's what happens when you close out the second round with bogeys on five of the final seven holes, which he did Monday at Militia Hill, the other course used the first two days. But yesterday on the Wissahickon layout, the 25-year-old Iowa native shot a 2-under-par 68, despite dropping a stroke on the 18th.

Americans Mark Calcavecchia and Lee Rinker had a two-shot lead after two rounds of the Senior British Open yesterday. Calcavecchia - one of three overnight leaders - made six birdies in his 3-under-par 69. He was joined at 7-under by Rinker and Canada's Rod Spittle, who each shot 67 at Walton Heath in Walton on the Hill, England. It's the first time since 2004 that at least three players have held a share of the lead after 36 holes of a Senior British Open. Australian Peter Fowler was two shots back after a 68, with American pair John Cook (67)

Justin Leonard just turned 39 last month. He has won a dozen times on the PGA Tour. In 1997, he lifted the claret jug at Royal Troon. Two years later, he drained the most memorable putt in Ryder Cup history to cap the greatest comeback ever in that event. So the game has been good to him. But it can also be cruel. In his last 43 tournaments, he's had a single top 10, none this season. He has missed the cut in seven of his last 10 starts. But there he was yesterday at Aronimink, going around in 3-under-par 67 to grab a share of the second spot through 36 holes of the AT&T National, two shots off the lead.

Noren had a 69 to go with his first-round 64. Play at the Kuala Lumpur Golf and Country Club was halted for nearly 3 hours before it resumed....

KOHLER, Wis. - Matt Kuchar was one of those guys. You know, a somebody who was supposed to become something, preferably ASAP. He was the 1997 U.S. Amateur champion, succeeding Tiger Woods. He tied for 14th at the 1998 U.S. Open, his second major, as an amateur. And was seemingly on his way. But it didn't happen. At least not yet. Before this year, Kuchar had played in 17 majors. He'd missed the cut in all but four. A tie for 48th at the 2008 U.S. Open was his first made-cut in a major since 1999.

THE WELL-proportioned woman passed in front of us just as Tiger Woods went into his swing. "Whoa," a man to my side said to the not-nearly-as-well-proportioned woman at his side. "Now there's a lady for Tiger. "That's what he needs to be looking at. " Mark it down. At 11:04 a.m. yesterday, something was said out loud in the vicinity of Tiger Woods that was not pure encouragement, not pure empathy, not pure adulation. A little joke, a reference to a past conveniently overlooked this week during the rare appearance of golf's fallen deity, even as details of his impending divorce settlement broke on Wednesday.

PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. - For most of the day, it seemed as if much of the U.S. Open field was scrummed at 1-under-par. And you needed a media guide to identify many of them. The course that gave us Open winners Jack Nicklaus in 1972, Tom Watson in 1982, Tom Kite in 1992 and Tiger Woods 10 years ago provided an opening-round leaderboard that looked more like some kind of Quad Cities pro-am. This is what those first 18 holes at a major can often turn into. And when it was in the books, one of the guys at 2-under 69 being chased at Pebble Beach Golf Links was none other than Shaun Micheel, who somehow managed to win the 2003 PGA Championship despite winning nothing before.
