Tiger Woods (3-1): Has never gone longer than 4 years without winning this thing. Phil Mickelson (6-1): Always a threat on this course, if he doesn't get in his own way. Padraig Harrington (8-1): Has a lot of guts to go with his game. Geoff Ogilvy (10-1): In fine form, though he hasn't played that well here. Ernie Els (13-1): Missed cut last 2 years, but was never out of top six from 2000 to '04. Sergio Garcia (16-1): Missed cut last 2 years. Probably can't putt well enough.

ORLANDO, Fla. - Justin Rose started out as another guy in Tiger Woods' group Thursday at Bay Hill. He wound up in the lead. Rose put on a clinic with the putter and ran off four straight birdies late in his round for a 7-under 65, giving him a 2-shot lead after the opening round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational. Woods had two sloppy bogeys from greenside bunkers. But he made enough key par saves and manhandled the par 5s to scratch out a 69, a reasonable start as he tries to win Bay Hill for the eighth time and return to No. 1 in the world.

  CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Nick Watney answered what he referred to as a wake-up call at the Wells Fargo Championship. Tiger Woods might need one. Watney had gone nine straight rounds on the PGA Tour without breaking 70 and had failed to crack the top 10 in all nine of his stroke-play tournaments. He worked hard to change that, and it paid off Friday with an 8-under 64 that put him atop theleader board at Quail Hollow. Woods wasn't sure about the weekend, either, though he was certain he would not be spending time at Quail Hollow.

FARMINGDALE, N.Y. - Padraig Harrington found a way to take some of the attention away from Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy on Thursday. He made six birdies on the tough back nine of Bethpage Black and opened the FedEx Cup playoffs with a 7-under 64 for a 1-shot lead at The Barclays. Harrington came to life on the back nine with four straight birdies to cap off his 64, giving him a 1-shot lead over Nick Watney and Brian Harman among the early starters. The hotter it became, the crustier the greens were, and it was unlikely anyone would catch him. No one did. Sergio Garcia was part of the group at 66, while defending champion Dustin Johnson and Rickie Fowler were in the group at 67. Thousands of fans chased after Woods and McIlroy, in the marquee group based on their standing in the FedEx Cup - Woods at No. 1, McIlroy at No. 3. Woods scratched out a 68. McIlroy had three birdies through six holes, but let the good start get away from him and settled for a 69.   LPGA COQUITLAM, British Columbia - Top-ranked Yani Tseng shot a 6-under 66 to take a 1-stroke lead after the first round of the Canadian Women's Open.

FARMINGDALE, N.Y. - A common phrase this year - "Tiger's back" - took on a new meaning Friday at The Barclays. Woods felt a twinge in his lower back when he awoke and felt pain throughout the second round at Bethpage Black. He overcame a bogey-bogey start, struggled in the simple task of retrieving the ball from the cup and stayed 3 strokes back, well within range of Nick Watney and the resurgent Sergio Garcia, who shared the lead going into the weekend. As many injuries as Woods has gone through the last two years, the way he grimaced and walked gingerly made it look as if this could be another.

FARMINGDALE, N.Y. - Sergio Garcia survived the fast, slippery greens of Bethpage Black for a 2-under 69 and a 2-shot lead in The Barclays. Garcia was 3 shots behind Nick Watney after 10 holes Saturday and had the lead three holes later when Watney struggled off the tee. The Spaniard played bogey-free over the final eight holes, and stretched his margin to 2 shots when Watney three-putted the 18th for a 71. Players described the greens as...

FARMINGDALE, N.Y. - Nick Watney salvaged a dismal season with a victory Sunday at The Barclays that was timely in many ways.

Watney won by 3 strokes over Brandt Snedeker. Watney is assured a shot at the $10 million prize at the Tour Championship next month and is also in the running for a Ryder Cup selection.

DUE TO THE FOG that wiped out an entire day of golf, the Farmers Insurance Open in San Diego was never going to end on Sunday. Tiger Woods just made it look as if it was over. Hands thrust in the pockets of his rain pants, Woods walked off Torrey Pines in the chill of twilight with a six-shot lead and only 11 more holes standing in the way of winning on the public course along the Pacific Ocean for the eighth time in his pro career. He drove the ball with superb control in the third round on his way to a 3-under 69 to build a four-shot lead after three rounds.

LYDIA KO won the Canadian Women's Open in Coquitlam, British Columbia, on Sunday to become the youngest winner in LPGA Tour history and only the fifth amateur champion. The 15-year-old South Korean-born New Zealander closed with a 5-under 67 for a three-stroke victory. She broke the age record of 16 set by Lexi Thompson last September in the Navistar LPGA Classic in Alabama, and is the first amateur winner since JoAnne Carner in the 1969 Burdine's Invitational. In January, Ko won the New South Wales Open in Australia at 14 to become the youngest player to win a professional tour event, a mark broken by 14-year-old Brooke Henderson in June in a Canadian Women's Tour event in Quebec.

DUBLIN, Ohio - Charl Schwartzel made sure one hole didn't ruin an entire round yesterday in the Memorial. Schwartzel hit the ball so consistently well at Muirfield Village that the former Masters champion twice had stretches of four straight birdies. He bounced back from a double bogey on the par-3 eighth hole with a birdie on the final hole to finish at 7-under 65. Schwartzel had a one-shot lead over Scott Piercy, who went from smashing it to playing it safe, and he was six shots clear of five-time winner Tiger Woods.

SAN DIEGO - Tiger Woods is a winner again at Torrey Pines, and the only question Monday was how long it would take him to finish. Woods stretched his lead to eight shots in the Farmers Insurance Open before losing his focus and his patience during a painfully slow finish by the group ahead. Despite dropping four shots over the last five holes, he still managed an even-par 72 for a four-shot victory on the course where he has won more than any other in his pro career. He won the tournament for the seventh time, one behind the record held by Sam Snead, who won the Greater Greensboro Open eight times.

With no labor agreement in sight, negotiations between the NHL and the players' union were put on hold Thursday until Friday. Donald Fehr , executive director of the NHL Players' Association, said the union could extend a counteroffer Friday at the NHL's New York office. The two sides are at odds over hockey-related revenue. The league wants to knock down the players' cut to 46 percent. Last season, the players' share was 57 percent. NHL commissioner Gary Bettman on Tuesday issued a second proposal to the union, an offer he called significant.
