Three days after the major championship season ended, Tiger Woods and Vijay Singh played like they still have plenty to prove yesterday by taking a share of the lead in the NEC Invitational in Akron, Ohio. Woods twice escaped trouble from the trees but never came close to making bogey on a Firestone course that offered no letup for those coming off the PGA Championship. He made a 15-foot birdie on his final hole for a 4-under 66, and later was joined by Singh and Henrik Stenson, of Sweden.

A decade ago, Sony's Walkman tape cassette player set us free to program our musical entertainment wherever and whenever we wanted. In the 1990s, our liberation will extend to a variety of hand-held products that supply us both with sound and sight on demand, using software that - like an audio cassette - slips readily into a slot or shirt pocket. One case in point is the TurboExpress portable game system from NEC, a nifty (albeit expensive at $250) new rival to the red-hot Nintendo Game Boy. Unlike the competition, NEC's multi-level games play in full color, with cartoon-quality animation and sometimes even stereo sound.

On the eve of Nintendo's entry into the 16-bit videogame wars with its Super NES system, rival NEC has taken a strong offensive move - dropping the price of its TurboGrafx 16-video-game console to under $100 - half the original price. Sega's Genesis system, currently the U.S. market leader among higher- resolution 16-bit games, was recently reduced to $150. Nintendo has yet to announce the price tag for its Super 16 bit system, due in stores this fall, but electronics and toy trade magazines have speculated that it would fall close to the $200 mark.

With his unfolding series of dramas written under the overall title We, Charles Fuller has given the Negro Ensemble Company (NEC) enough black history to fill a season, let alone a month. The history is useful, but, so far, the drama has been negligible as the Pulitzer Prize-winning Philadelphia playwright has explored the contradictions and cruel deceptions of emancipation in the Civil War and the era that followed. This is true of the fourth installment, Burner's Frolic, which opened Sunday at the NEC's home base, Off-Broadway's Theater Four.

If anyone had questions about Stewart Cink being chosen for the Ryder Cup team, he answered them with authority yesterday at the NEC Invitational at Akron, Ohio. The last man to make the U.S. team, Cink never let anyone within two shots en route to becoming the first wire-to-wire winner this year on the PGA Tour. He closed with an even-par 70 in the final round, ending with a 15-foot birdie putt that gave him a four-shot victory over Tiger Woods and Rory Sabbatini, who tied for second.

The only thing Chris Riley knew about Firestone was that it usually took a score of about 12-under-par to win, and the trophy always went to Tiger Woods. It might not be that simple this year. As the wind and rough sent Woods to a sloppy finish and his worst score in 22 rounds at Firestone, Riley and David Toms pulled away with pars to share the lead after two rounds of the NEC Invitational in Akron, Ohio. Riley and Toms each had a 3-under 67 and were the only players to break par among the final dozen who teed off late yesterday afternoon.

Robert Allenby has been looking for a spark in his game, a little something extra to turn good rounds into good scores. His 8-under 63 in the second round of NEC Invitational yesterday might do the trick. Allenby han eagle and five birdies on his final seven holes set the course record and take a share of the lead with Steve Lowery in the $5 million World Golf Championship event. "I haven't played anywhere near the way I played last year or the year before, when I won twice each year," Allenby said.
