Somewhat like the fight manager who did not know when to throw in the towel, the PGA Tour went on relentlessly last year, with no apparent end. And it started the new year in the same perplexing manner, with no clear-cut beginning. Once upon a time, the tour took a break around Thanksgiving and came back fresh in mid-January to show off those Hollywood stars with golf swings out of a Keystone Kops movie. That is not the case anymore. It has now become proper for touring pros, with blessings of the PGA, to seek out events whenever and wherever sponsors shell out the the loot.

HONOLULU - Russell Henley became the first PGA Tour rookie in 10 years to win his debut with a record-setting performance Sunday in the Sony Open. Tied for the lead with fellow rookie Scott Langley to start the final round, Henley seized control from the start with a birdie on the first hole. And then he really poured it on at the end of the round. Henley birdied his last five holes to close with a 7-under-par 63 for a 3-shot win over Tim Clark. Henley finished at 24-under 256. It was the second-lowest score for a 72-hole tournament in PGA Tour history, 1 shot behind Tommy Armour III at the Texas Open in 2003.

WINNING ON the PGA Tour is what Tommy Gainey dreamed about when he held a job wrapping insulation around hot water tanks, when he was playing more mini-tours than he can remember, when he was taking part in a Golf Channel reality series where he was best known as the guy wearing two gloves. "Two Gloves" never imagined his first win would unfold the way it did Sunday at Sea Island Golf Club in St. Simons Island, Ga. Seven shots behind going into the final round of the McGladrey Classic, Gainey came within one putt of a 59, and then had to wait more than 2 hours as David Toms, Jim Furyk and tournament host Davis Love III - who have combined for 49 wins, three majors and 17 Ryder Cup teams - tried to catch him. None of them could.

John Appleget of Stone Harbor Country Club preserved his first day's lead and won the Susquehanna Valley Open golf tournament of the Philadelphia PGA with a 36-hole par score of 140 yesterday at Susquehanna Valley Country Club in Hummels Wharf, Pa. It was Appleget's first victory on the local pro tour. JUNIOR BOYS Radley Run's Kyle Yerk, who eagled the third and eighth holes, shared the medal prize at 2-over-par 72 with Chris Hoyle of Llanerch Country Club in the qualifying round of the Philadelphia Junior Boys' golf championship on Merion Golf Club's West Course.

The Walrus still has some bite. Craig Stadler shot a stunning 9-under-par 63 yesterday to come from eight shots behind and win the B.C. Open in Endicott, N.Y., by one stroke over Alex Cejka and Steve Lowery. It was the 13th victory on the PGA Tour for Stadler and his second win in 8 days. He captured the Senior Players Championship last week. "It's like la-la land here the last 2 weeks," said Stadler, who became the first Senior Tour player to win a PGA event. Ray Floyd also won on both tours in 1992, but he was 49 and still on the PGA Tour when he captured Doral.

Prize money on the PGA Tour will go up to a record $180 million in 2001, with an even larger increase anticipated when the tour negotiates a new, four-year television contract in the spring. Also, commissioner Tim Finch-em said yesterday he's confident the tour can work out marketing issues with the player largely responsible for those rising purses - Tiger Woods. "We don't have issues that can't be resolved," Finchem said during a teleconference to discuss the state of the tour.

Tom Sieckmann, who had been winless in four years on the PGA tour and had missed the cut in 13 of 16 events this season, parred the second hole of a sudden-death playoff with Mark Wiebe yesterday to win the Anheuser-Busch Golf Classic in Williamsburg, Va. Both players made par-saving putts on the first playoff hole, the 427-yard 16th. Wiebe's putt was from 12 feet on the fringe of the green and Sieckmann's from three feet. Wiebe missed a six-footer for par on the next hole, and Sieckmann sank a two-footer.

FOR ALL THE big moments in Graeme McDowell's career, his resume was short on PGA Tour victories. McDowell relished what he called his first authentic tour win, defeating fellow U.S. Open champ Webb Simpson in a playoff at the RBC Heritage on Sunday in Hilton Head Island, S.C. McDowell has been at the center of some of golf's biggest moments, from his rousing triumph at Pebble Beach in 2010 to capturing the winning point for Europe in that year's...

The PGA Tour said Monday it would follow a new rule that bans the anchored putting stroke used by four of the last six major champions, but requested a temporary reprieve for those who play the game for fun.

JOHN DALY has taken a swing at the PGA Tour's drug-testing policy. Daly, on his radio show, "Hit It Hard With John Daly" on Sirius/XM, said the Tour notifies players before they will be tested, given them time to clean up their act. "It's not random; it's a big a joke," Daly said. "This whole drug testing is a joke. " Daly said he expects to be tested before this week's Valspar Championship at Innisbrook Resort in Palm Harbor, Fla. "I know when I'm getting drug tested," he said.

MR. 58 TEES OFF at 8:10 a.m. Thursday. Eagles punter Donnie Jones, the oldest player on the team, will be in Pittsburgh on Thursday preparing for a preseason game. Still, he will be following what Jim Furyk does at the Wyndham Championships. So will the rest of the golf world. Because, the last time he played, Furyk shot the lowest score in the history of the PGA Tour. "Golll-eee, man!" said Jones, a Louisiana native. "I've never even shot even par! My best golf day was probably the day I shot 76. Jim Furyk, if you're listening: That was a hell of a round, man. " Among the four major American sports, kickers and punters tend to be the best golfers.

SPRINGFIELD, N.J. - Lightning followed by steady, heavy rain Saturday forced officials to suspend the third round of play in the 98th PGA Championship at Baltusrol Golf Club. A gloomy forecast for Sunday raised the possibility that the season's final major might have to be extended to a fifth day. Play was suspended at 2:14 p.m. because of lightning in the area. Of the 86 players who made the 36-hole cut and advanced to Saturday's play, only 37 completed their rounds. Ten contestants, including co-leaders Jimmy Walker and Robert Streb, did not tee off and faced the possibility of going 36 holes Sunday.

AT THE 2011 Masters, Australian Jason Day closed with two birdies to finish tied for second, two behind South Africa's Charl Schwartzel, who birdied the last four holes. And two months later he got another second at the U.S. Open, eight in back of runaway winner Rory McIlroy. The previous August, Day had tied for 10th at the PGA Championship in his second major. But that April in Augusta, most people still didn't really know who the then-23-year-old was or what he might have in him. Golf is littered with guys who do something and are mostly never heard from again.

OAKMONT, Pa. - A varied collection of challengers each would like to be the one coming out to the 18th green at Oakmont Country Club on Sunday evening to collect the trophy for the U.S. Open championship, but there's plenty of work to be done before that happens. With U.S. Golf Association officials continuing their efforts to try to get back on schedule after a stormy Thursday, the Open ended another day with a round left incomplete, requiring 25 players to return to the course at 7 a.m. Sunday to finish up the third round.

OAKMONT, Pa. – As unusual days at the U.S. Open go, this one was pretty strange. Dustin Johnson, who went two rounds and 36 holes Friday at Oakmont Country Club and got in just before dark, was at the same 4-under-par figure as a relative unknown, Andrew Landry, who struck one shot all day – a 12-foot birdie putt that hit the bottom of the cup and finished off a first-round 66. Landry, a PGA Tour rookie who ranks No. 624 in the world this...

GALLOWAY TOWNSHIP, N.J. - You see golfers getting hugged all the time as they celebrate moments on this green or that. This one was different. This was an international event, the Solheim Cup, where it's usually just teammates hugging teammates. This was a husband hugging his wife, and doing it in rural Germany, instead of, say, Jason Day embracing Ellie at Sawgrass. This wife, Gerina Piller, had just made a crucial putt for the United States that staved off defeat and paved the way for an epic comeback; this wife, who had come from golf's deepest shadows to bring her country glory.

Industrial Valley Bank and the local PGA Tour event that bank once sponsored are both defunct now. But for a brief period, from 1969 through 1980, those two entities found themselves enmeshed in a war that ultimately transformed the face of . And as a rich and powerful vanguard of the future stormed the gates of tradition, the losing side's last defense was a delete button. Difficult as it now may be to imagine, with nearly the entire world corporately branded, there was a time not long ago when a wall separated sports and business.

WE INTERRUPT this particularly dead time in our collective sports calendar to bring you the latest adventures of Donald Trump - a man who, when he isn't hosting a reality show, is one. I know: It's like feeding Canada geese, writing about this guy. It just produces more . . . well . . . mess. Trump is testing the limits of free speech and his own financial tolerance of it with this latest grab for attention, running for the nomination of a party that is already clearly running from him. He's like a human minesweeper for the Republicans, publicly testing out polarizing views that popularize Facebook pages but - even among a consortium of loose-cannon candidates - seem self-defeating for any serious presidential bid. By Trump's own admission, his insulting and inflammatory comments about Mexican immigrants - "bringing drugs . . . crime . . . they're rapists" - have already cost him millions.

DONALD TRUMP has become like a skunk at a picnic. Everyone's trying to get as far away as possible. Yesterday, Macy's cut the cord with Trump's menswear line, and said in a statement, "We welcome all customers, and respect for the dignity of all people is a cornerstone of our culture . . . In light of statements made by Donald Trump, we have decided to discontinue our business relationship. " As the type of guy who when dumped by a woman, yelled back, "I dumped you first!"

UNIVERSITY PLACE, Wash. - There is no NBA rule to make LeBron James self-deprecating. The NFL cannot force Marshawn Lynch to be a good sport, and Major League Baseball could never convince Barry Bonds to be pleasant. The same is true with Tiger. Neither the PGA Tour nor the USGA nor the legions of fans who follow him can coerce the most important golfer in history to be genuine or forthcoming about anything but the mechanics of the game. As he resumes his quest to catch Jack Nicklaus today at the U.S. Open, Woods becomes further diminished by the play and the personalties of his peers.
