U.S. Open champion Lucas Glover has recovered from a rocky start to his PGA Tour season by making two eagles on his way to a 7-under-par 66 and a one-shot lead in the SBS Championship in Kapalua, Hawaii. The only other time Glover played at Kapalua, he opened the tournament with four straight bogeys. Yesterday, he hit his approach on the first hole into a hazard and made double-bogey. Starting with his eagle on the par-5 fifth, Glover played a nine-hole stretch in 9-under par. He had a one-shot lead over Martin Laird, Nathan Green, Matt Kuchar and Nick Watney.

THE DREADED PICK I'm skipping the Handicapping 101 portion of this exercise because I really don't know who to make the favorite. I was going to list Tiger at 10-1. Not to win, just to finish. I have Phil Mickelson in a pool, and he has almost won this thing like a dozen times (without actually winning it). But at this point in the age game, who knows? I think K.J. Choi should play well, but he won the Players Champion- ship and nobody wins both. I think Luke Donald will play well, but he doesn't seem to lift a trophy too often.

VANCOUVER, British Columbia - American Kris Blanks shot a 3-under 67 to take a 1-stroke lead after the first-round at the Canadian Open on Thursday. Matt McQuillan was the best of 17 Canadians with a 2-under 68, putting the 30-year-old PGA Tour rookie in a tie with 11 players, including Ernie Els. Rickie Fowler, Anthony Kim and Lucas Glover - playing together in softer morning conditions - all shot 69 to finish among another group of nine players on a day when only 21 players were under par on the tight tree-lined, 7,010-yard Shaughnessy Golf and Country Club.

PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. - When Tiger Woods won by 15 shots here in 2000, he opened with a 65. That was then. This time, his first-round score in the fifth U.S. Open to be held at Pebble Beach Golf Links was 3-over-par 74, which left him five back with 54 holes remaining. But he didn't play that badly. He hit 10 fairways and a dozen greens. He just didn't make anything happen. And hey, he's still one ahead of Phil Mickelson. "The greens were awful, just awful," Woods said.

Nick Watney appeared to be along for the ride until making two birdies over the final three holes to take advantage of a late collapse by John Rollins and win the Buick Invitational in San Diego. Watney knocked in a 40-foot birdie putt from the fringe on the par-3 16th, then completed his five-shot rally yesterday with a two-putt birdie on the 18th hole. He closed with a 4-under 68 for his second career victory. "I knew it wasn't over," Watney said. Rollins let this one get away.

PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. - David Toms, who came to The Players Championship with just four rounds in the 60s in 19 previous appearances, now has two in the same week. The Louisiana native used a 4-under-par 68 to grab the lead midway through Friday's second round at TPC Sawgrass. Combined with his opening 66, his total of 10-under 134 left him 1 stroke ahead of his nearest pursuit. Until this week, Toms had never broken 70 twice in the same week at Sawgrass. "It seemed like early in my career around here, I was always trying to play the perfect shot," said Toms, now 10 years removed from his PGA Championship crown.

Mark Calcavecchia defied the afternoon rain to shoot a bogey-free 68 and take a three-way share of the first-round lead at the Senior British Open yesterday. Bidding to become the fourth player to win both the British Open and the senior version, the 51-year-old American had two birdies on either side of the turn before parring the final five holes. Calcavecchia, winner of the British Open at Troon in 1989, was joined on 4 under by Ireland's Mark McNulty and Australia's Mike Harwood, who earlier benefited from still and dry conditions on the parkland course at Walton Heath in Walton on the Hill, England, that hosted the 1981 Ryder Cup. "The weather moved in when we were on No. 11 - it wasn't horrible, but it made it tougher for sure," said Calcavecchia, one of three players not to drop a shot in their first rounds.

Mark Calcavecchia well remembers the last time he opened a weekend contending for a major championship. This time, he's hoping for a better ending. Calcavecchia opened a three-stroke lead yesterday in the Regions Tradition at Shoal Creek, Ala., shooting a 7-under-par 65. The event is the Champions Tour's first major of the season. Calcavecchia, with wife Brenda working as his caddie, was second in the British Open last year after 36 holes, but dropped to 73rd with closing rounds of 77 and 80. "I didn't handle that too good," said Calcavecchia, the 1989 British Open winner.

KOHLER, Wis. - Anthony Kim and Lucas Glover dropped out, at least for the time being. Bubba Watson and Dustin Johnson, who needed something for his efforts, took their places. The eight automatic qualifiers for the U.S. Ryder Cup team that will try to defend its title at the biennial matches in Wales this October were finalized yesterday. Phil Mickelson and Hunter Mahan already knew they were in. They'll be joined by Jim Furyk, Steve Stricker, Jeff Overton and Matt Kuchar, as well as Watson and Johnson.

PINEHURST, N.C. - It all started here in 1999, when Phil Mickelson famously lost the U.S. Open to Payne Stewart by one on a closing 15-foot par putt. Three years later at Bethpage, he again finished second, three behind Tiger Woods. In 2004, he was runner-up, by two, to Retief Goosen at Shinnecock Hills. In 2006, going for his third straight major, Mickelson blew a 1-shot lead with a 72nd-hole double bogey at Winged Foot. In 2009, back at Bethpage, he lost by a deuce to Lucas Glover.

MICHAEL ALLEN shot a 7-under-par 63 yesterday and broke away from the pack for a five-stroke lead after the second round of the U.S. Senior Open. Allen was among seven players who shared the first-round lead at 3-under. He birdied five of the first eight holes and eagled the par-5 14th while shooting his best round of the year in hot, breezy conditions at the par-70 Omaha Country Club. Allen's 36-hole lead is the largest in the event's 34-year history. Rocco Mediate, at 5-under, is his closest pursuer.

The Monday-to-Wednesday story lines have all been covered, some past the point of excess. Can Tiger win his first major in five years? Can Phil Mickelson finally win his first U.S. Open? Will Sergio Garcia say something crazy? How will venerable Merion handle the marauding modern athletes with their space-age equipment? Those Thursday through Sunday story lines, which finally begin writing themselves, determine whether this will be a classic tournament or just another stop on the tour.

LYTHAM ST. ANNES - Padraig Harrington. Angel Cabrera. Lucas Glover. Golf's major championships used to be so easy to predict. Stewart Cink. Y.E. Yang. Phil Mickelson. Tiger Woods could be counted on to win most of them. Mickelson would grab one every now and then. Occasionally, some little-known player - say, Ben Curtis or Shaun Micheel - would slip in to steal one away. Graeme McDowell. Louis Oosthuizen. Martin Kaymer. Now, it feels like a total crapshoot, a blindfolded toss at a dart board.

SANDWICH, England - Darren Clarke marched along bumpy fairways on a wild ride at Royal St. George's that was filled with blunders and brilliance, and one final birdie that brought the kind of ovation he had not heard in a decade at the British Open. Right behind him was Lucas Glover, far more steady in closing his round with eight straight pars. When a sun-baked and wind-blown second round finally ended yesterday, they shared the lead in a major that is living up to its proper name.
