Phil Mickelson Age: 36. Major titles: 3 ('04 Masters, '05 PGA, '06 Masters). Prognosis: Desperately looking to get the Mickelson Machine back on track. After winning back-to-back majors (PGA, Masters), Mickelson was breathing down Tiger Woods' neck - then blew the U.S. Open in spectacular fashion. After his disappointing tie for 22d place at the British Open, he wants the magic. Look for Lefty to pull a bunny from his hat. Ladbroke odds: 8-1. Jim Furyk Major titles: 1 ('03 U.S. Open)

After third-place finishes in 1985, 1986 and 1987, tour player Jim Booros finally made it to the top locally yesterday when he won the 60th Philadelphia PGA Golf Championship with a 10-under-par 203 at the Eagle Lodge Country Club. Booros, 39, followed rounds of 69 and 68 with a 5-under-par 66 to win by 1 stroke over Gene Fieger of Downingtown. He won $16,000 from the $100,000 purse. Fieger, who eagled the fifth hole with a 50-foot putt, closed with three straight birdies for a 66 and won the $12,500 second prize.

PITTSFORD, N.Y. - The Philadelphia-area will be well-represented at the 95th PGA Championship, which starts tomorrow at Oak Hill Country Club. Mark Sheftic, the PGA teaching professional at Merion, and David McNabb, the PGA head professional at Applebrook Golf Club in Malvern, will both be in the field. It is the first PGA Championship for McNabb, who tied for ninth in the 2013 PGA Professional National Championship, giving him a shot to play with the best golfers in the world this week.

When the PGA of America did not announce two months ago that Aronimink Golf Club in Newtown Square would be the site of the 1993 PGA Championship, the warning lights began to flash. The PGA has traditionally announced the site of its tournament five years hence at the site of the current tournament. But officials were non-committal in August when asked at this year's PGA at Edmond, Okla., leading people to believe that Aronimink wasn't the lock that many people had thought. But James Ray Carpenter, the president of the PGA of America, soothed the doomsayers yesterday by announcing that Aronimink would indeed be the site of the 1993 PGA Championship, its 75th.

Atlanta Athletic Club has been around in various forms since 1898. The configuration of its Highlands Course was completed in 1970. Six years later the U.S. Open was held there. Since then it has undergone a couple of redesigns by Rees Jones, whose father, Robert Trent Jones Sr., was one of the original architects for what was then a 27-hole complex. Anyway, that major is remembered for the shot that clinched it, a 5-iron out of the rough from 22-year-old Jerry Pate on the 72nd hole from some 190 yards away that had to clear a lake fronting the green.

The Philadelphia Section PGA Championship has been reduced from 54 to 36 holes because Tuesday's storm left a massive cleanup for the grounds staff at White Manor Country Club in Malvern. After the first round was washed out, the tournament had scheduled a morning and afternoon shotgun start for Wednesday. But the grounds staff was not able to get the course ready until 10:30 a.m., meaning one of the shotgun starts had to be carried over to Thursday. The field will be cut to the low 60 players and ties after Thursday, with the second and final round going off Friday.

Marc Sheftic , 38, a PGA teaching pro at Merion, shot a 76 Wednesday to finish in a four-way tie for fourth with a 283 in the PGA Professional National Championship, qualifying him for the PGA Championship in August. Also qualifying for the PGA was David McNabb , of Applebrook in Malvern, who was tied for ninth with a 286 after shooting a 71. Rod Perry won the event at Sunriver (Ore.) Resort, shooting a 3-under 69 for a 3-stroke victory. The 39-year-old Perry, the PGA head pro at Crane Lakes in Port Orange, Fla., finished at 10-under 277. SOCCER: Paulinho headed Brazil into the Confederations Cup final with an 86th-minute header on Wednesday to give the host nation a 2-1 victory over Uruguay at Mineirao Stadium in Belo Horizonte, Brazil.

Dave McNabb waited a long time to participate in his first career major, finally getting his chance last year at age 47 in the PGA Championship at Oak Hill Country Club in Rochester, N.Y.

The two most recent PGA Professional National Championships, the premier tournament for U.S. club professionals, have generated some memorable moments for Dave McNabb. McNabb, 49, the head pro at Applebrook Golf Club in Malvern, has capitalized on his success in the PNC to earn back-to-back invitations to the PGA Championship, the first and second majors of his long career. He played four solid rounds in the PNC in 2013 and tied for ninth place to qualify. Last year, he sank a 20-foot birdie putt on the 18th hole to avoid a playoff for the remainder of the 20 available spots in the PGA. "I just felt that I hung in there and something good happened at the end," McNabb said Saturday of last year's clutch putt, as he finished up preparations for Sunday's start of the PNC at the Philadelphia Cricket Club.

I LOST $25 in the last few weeks. A few things didn't fall my way. It started the night of Aug. 11, when the Dodgers' Adrian Gonzalez, hitting .298 at the time, went 0-for-4 with a pair of strikeouts. Astros phenom Carlos Correa had the same stat line. Yankees outfielder Brett Gardner, an All-Star for the first time last month, went 0-for-6 with a strikeout hat trick. It's tough to win a contest on DraftKings competing against more than 61,000 other lineups of 10 players - a complete diamond, but with two pitchers - when 30 percent of your lineup combines to go 0-for-14 with seven strikeouts.

ST. ANDREWS, Scotland - There's no way Jordan Spieth can possibly complete golf's calendar Grand Slam, right? Not at 21. Or probably any other age. Why? Well, because it's never been done in the modern era. He's halfway there, having gone wire-to-wire in April at the Masters (where he tied Tiger Woods' scoring record) before taking last month's U.S. Open by a shot when Dustin Johnson three-putted the 72nd green. Last week he won in a playoff at the John Deere, in his first start since Chambers Bay, even though a bunch of folks figured he would have been better off getting to the Old Course earlier to properly prepare for the third major of the season.

OK, SO maybe it wasn't Jean Van de Velde at Carnoustie. But it sure seemed eerily close. With one hole to go late yesterday afternoon at Philadelphia Cricket Club, the PGA Professional National Championship was pretty much Ben Polland's to lose. He led by two over one of the other members of his threesome, 2012 PNC champion Matt Dobyns, who also plays out of the New York Metropolitan Section. At 24, in his PNC debut, Polland was trying to become the youngest winner, by four years (Howell Fraser, in the inaugural event in 1968)

All Robby Bruns wanted, in his second career PGA Professional National Championship, was to get by the first two rounds at Philadelphia Cricket Club and then see what he could accomplish. Not only did Bruns, an assistant pro at Merion, climb the leader board Tuesday after making the 36-hole cut, he also gave himself a chance to achieve something special - a berth in his first PGA Championship - over the final 18 holes. The 25-year-old pro fired a 2-under-par 68 on the Wissahickon course for a 54-hole score of 3-over 215 and moved into position to make a run at a top-20 finish, which would get him in next month's PGA at Whistling Straits in Kohler, Wis. He was in a tie for 37th place when he finished just after noon - well before a 1-hour, 33-minute delay imposed because of lightning in the area - but he rose to a tie for 21st place by the end of the day. He jumped 56 spots in the standings.

A MONTH AGO, Gulph Mills Golf Club assistant pro Joshua Rackley pocketed $100,000 for winning the 18-hole Haverford Trust Philadelphia PGA Classic on the second hole of a playoff, by far the biggest payday for the 25-year-old. Or for just about anyone who isn't at least making a living on some mini tour. And yes, he already has invested a sizable chunk of that windfall. Hey, the guy went to North Carolina State. "I can't complain," Rackley said yesterday after completing his morning round at Philadelpia Cricket Club, site of this week's 72-hole Professional National Championship.

THE PGA TOUR will be back in the Philadelphia area in 2018, following a 7-year absence. The Daily News has confirmed a Comcast SportsNet report that Newtown Square's Aronimink Country Club will host the BMW Championship in mid-September of that year. That event, the third leg of the FedExCup playoffs, is held at different venues throughout the country. It won't become official until the club's membership votes to accept on March 4, but sources say that isn't expected to be an issue.

IN 1910 THE Philadelphia Cricket Club hosted the U.S. Open for the second time in 4 years, on its St. Martins course in Chestnut Hill, nine holes of which are still there. In 2020 the Wissahickon and Militia Hill courses in Flourtown will be the site of the first USGA championship to be held at the club since then, the newly created U.S. Amateur men's Four-Ball. The inaugural championship is being held in early May at The Olympic Club in San Francisco, the first competition on the USGA schedule (the inaugural women's championship is the following week at Oregon's Bandon Dunes resort)

It took some extra work for George Forster, but he found his way into the Philadelphia Section PGA record books on Thursday. Forster, the head pro at Radnor Valley Country Club in Villanova, sank an eight-foot birdie putt on the third playoff hole to defeat Stu Ingraham and capture the Philadelphia PGA Championship at Llanerch Country Club in Havertown. With the victory, at age 58, Forster became the oldest player ever to win the section's premier event, beating out Marty Furgol, who won in 1970 at 54. He also did it 15 years after his previous section championship.

U.S. captain Tom Watson said he would be foolish not to consider Tiger Woods as one of his three wild-card selections for the Ryder Cup, a decision that ultimately would be based on Woods' words instead of his actions. Watson has said all year he wanted Woods on his team if he was healthy and playing well. Even though Woods is injured and not playing for the next month, Watson wouldn't rule him out Monday. "I can't assess his medical condition and I honestly can't assess how he's playing," Watson said.
