The stamp, as Mike Reid calls it, is wearing off. It never will be erased completely. There will be someone in every crowd who remembers Reid's days as an All-America defensive tackle at Penn State and later an All-Pro with the Cincinnati Bengals, but that's OK. At 44, Reid has reached the point in his music career - pianist, songwriter, now singer - where he finally can be defined by what he is and not by what he was. Football was...

Is your driver dysfunctional? Have your irons gone irrational? If your putter spies a five-foot putt, does it start to shake uncontrollably? If so, Theodore Weiss, a psychiatrist at Lankenau Hospital, can't help. He offers no therapy for crazy or otherwise uncooperative golf equipment. If you think your problem is in your bag and not beneath your visor, look elsewhere. But Weiss thinks he can help open-minded golfers looking to, er, shrink their scores. "The point of science, I think, is prediction and control," said Weiss, and who among golfers couldn't use a little more of both?

Mike Reid received his varsity soccer indoctrination playing defense, but now he keeps opposing defenders on their toes. In fact, the Lenape senior usually has two or three defenders draped around him during games. Reid's wide variety of moves has frustrated even the best of them. When dribbling the ball, he rarely lets it stray far from his foot. The 5-foot-7, 135-pound forward has been a premier scorer for one of the top programs in South Jersey the last two years. Last season, he scored 17 goals and helped Lenape win the South Jersey Group 4 title and finish No. 1 in The Inquirer's South Jersey rankings.

You can't blame Mike Reid and Leonard Thompson if they feel neglected. The PGA Tour veterans produced the best rounds (6-under-par 66) they ever shot in a major tournament and they are getting no respect. Instead, the likes of Tom Watson (67), Arnold Palmer (68) and Jack Nicklaus (68) got all the attention yesterday after the first round of the PGA Championship. That's OK with Reid because he's not expected to leap tall buildings in a single bound. He's one of the shortest hitters on the tour, but he showed up the experts at Kemper Lakes Golf Club, the second-longest layout ever to host the PGA Championship.

Rosemont's Charlie Bolling shot a 70 yesterday to move to 7 under par and take a 1-stroke lead over four golfers after the second round of the $500,000 Kemper Open in Bethesda, Md. Fred Couples held a 3-stroke lead after the first round but fell 4 strokes off the pace after struggling to a 77 and 141 total. Couples, who tied the Congressional Golf Course record with an 8-under-par 64 in the opening round, lost 4 strokes to par when he shot a 7 on the 16th hole. Bobby Clampett, Mike Reid, Larry Mize and Leonard Thompson each finished the second round at 138, 1 stroke off the pace.

Mike Reid has enjoyed much more space on the soccer field in his last four games, and the Lenape senior has taken full advantage of the extra room. Reid continued his postseason tear by scoring twice during Lenape's 3-0 victory yesterday over East Brunswick in a state Group 4 semifinal at Hamilton East. Lenape, 20-4-1 and ranked No. 1 in South Jersey by The Inquirer, advanced to Friday's 6 p.m. state Group 4 championship against Randolph, a shoot-out winner over Kearny, at the College of New Jersey.

For as long as he can remember, Mike Reid has heard that he was too small to play sports. And all that time, Reid has been on a mission to prove those skeptics wrong. This soccer season, he made an emphatic statement in behalf of the little guy. The 5-foot-7, 140-pound Lenape senior stood out during the recent state soccer tournament. Reid scored six goals in six games as Lenape romped to its first state Group 4 championship. Though he drew a crowd whenever he got the ball, it didn't seem to matter.

Mike Reid came from 4 strokes back with a 5-under-par 67 yesterday in the Tucson (Ariz.) Open and scored the first victory of his 11-year career on the PGA tour. Reid, 33, took advantage of Fuzzy Zoeller's front-side troubles to gain a share of the top spot, then pulled away from Hal Sutton on the back side of the new TPC course at Star Pass. The slender, soft-spoken Reid finished with a 268 total - 20 strokes under par. "Words can't describe how grateful I feel," he said.

Stu Ingraham says he enjoyed the best moment of his golf career last weekend. He also suffered his worst moment. Ingraham, the assistant club pro at Waynesborough Country Club in Paoli, finished the first round of the PGA Championships among the leaders with a 70, but then an erratic second round made him miss the cut of qualifiers for the final 36 holes of the tournament at Kemper Lakes Golf Club in Hawthorn Woods, Ill.

Tom Watson missed a 30-inch par-saving putt and let Mike Reid escape with a playoff victory yesterday in the World Series of Golf in Akron, Ohio. Watson, seeking his first victory of the season and second in four years, three-putted the first playoff hole and Reid became a winner with a routine par. The lapse by Watson, who has been troubled by inconsistent short putting for the four years of his slump, cost him a chance to go past Jack Nicklaus and take the all-time money-winning lead on the PGA Tour.

The last major golf tournament of the season turned out to be one of vindication for Payne Stewart. Stewart won the 71st PGA Championship yesterday at Kemper Lakes Golf Club, and he did it in a way that was very much out of character. Too often in the past, he has managed to turn potential victory into defeat. It happened already this year in the U.S. Open, the British Open and two weeks ago in the Buick Open. But this time - trailing by six shots with five holes to play - he birdied four of the last five holes and came away with his first major championship when leader Mike Reid collapsed down the stretch.

Tall and lean Mike Reid slashed his drive on the final hole as dusk began to settle around Kemper Lakes Golf Club. It was well past his dinner time and Reid indicated he was hungry in more ways than one. He turned to a marshall standing nearby and wondered aloud. "Hey, does Domino's deliver pizzas out here?" Extra cheese, mushrooms or otherwise, Reid is chewing it up in the 71st PGA Championship and devouring the monster of a course that plays to a par 72 strung out over nearly 7,200 yards.

As one who ranks next to last among 185 tour players in driving distance, Mike Reid looked like the kind of guy who would be devoured by the long and difficult Kemper Lakes Golf Club course at the 71st PGA Championship. Instead, it has been the skinny, bespectacled Reid who has beaten Kemper Lakes to its knees. The 35-year-old tour veteran shot a 5-under-par 67 to take a 2-shot lead in the rain-delayed second round of the PGA with a record-tying 11-under-par total of 133. While 133 is not the lowest number ever posted for 36 holes of a PGA, the 11-under-par figure matches that of Hal Sutton, when he shot the record 131 at the par-71 Riviera Country Club in Pacific Palisades, Calif.
