Haverford School lost 22 players to graduation, including workhorse rusher Phil Poquie, but the cupboard is far from bare for 11th-year coach Mike Murphy. The defending Inter-Ac League champs return five starters on both sides of the ball, including four first-team all-league picks: offensive lineman Brian Denoncour (6-foot-3, 270 pounds), multipurpose standout Dox Aitken, offensive lineman and linebacker Frank Cresta, and linebacker Mickey Kober. The main targets for Fords quarterback Kevin Carter, who passed for 1,500 yards and 16 touchdowns last season, are Aitken and Micah Sims.

GALLOWAY TOWNSHIP, N.J. - All right, so Alexis Thompson fell short last weekend in trying to become the youngest player in LPGA history to win a tournament on the tour. She has about two years left to own the distinction. One figures with her power and talent, an LPGA Tour win isn't too far away for the 16-year-old Floridian. Thompson, who was tied for the 54-hole lead in the Avnet LPGA Classic in Mobile, Ala., shot a 78 on Sunday - when she was 16 years, 2 months and 21 days old - to finish in a tie for 19th, 9 strokes behind winner Maria Hjorth.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - The only questions Tiger Woods fielded before his next tournament came from his fans. Instead of a news conference before this week's Wells Fargo Championship, Woods answered 19 questions Monday in a 15-minute video posted on his website. The questions were submitted through Facebook and Twitter. The timing of the decision was peculiar. Woods is coming off his worst performance ever at the Masters, a tie for 40th in which he finished 15 shots behind and was roundly criticized for kicking his 9-iron in disgust in the second round after a poor tee shot on the par-3 16th hole.

Tiger Woods is back on a PGA Tour golf course for the first time in nearly three months after an injury layoff. Woods returns this week at the Bridgestone Invitational in Akron, Ohio, and he wasted little time on Tuesday at Firestone. He was on the practice range just as the sun was starting to rise, playing nine holes accompanied by swing coach Sean Foley . On the bag is Bryon Bell , his childhood friend. Woods announced two weeks ago that he had fired Steve Williams , his caddie of 12 years.

Sean O'Hair wrapped up the description of his good- but-not-good-enough performance in the U.S. Open sectional qualifying competition by saying, "Clearly, it's disappointing. " He added ruefully, "Then again, this year's been nothing but disappointing. " O'Hair, of West Chester, is going through his most frustrating year since joining the PGA Tour in 2005. He has missed eight cuts in 14 tour events this year, and his world ranking has fallen to 89. With only two top-20 finishes, he is 128th on the FedEx Cup points list and needs to make a move soon to firm up a spot for the playoffs starting in August.

PITTSFORD, N.Y. - It was another day at the PGA Championship, and another frustrating walk around Oak Hill Country Club for Tiger Woods, who assuredly will come up empty again for an 18th straight major. Woods bogeyed two of his first three holes Saturday and made nothing happen after that. His 3-over-par 73 left him at 4-over 214, tied for 48th place and 13 strokes behind 54-hole leader Jim Furyk. "It was hard for me," Woods said. "I didn't play very well today. I didn't hit it very good, didn't make anything, kept blocking every putt.

For Sean O'Hair, the last few weeks have been fraught with drama. But after recording his best finish of 2011 at The Players Championship, the West Chester resident hopes the only drama involving him from now on comes when he puts himself in position on Sundays for a PGA Tour victory. O'Hair, 28, closed Sunday with an even-par 72 on the TPC Sawgrass Stadium Course to tie for 19th place at 7-under 281. The $107,000-plus he pocketed was just $40,000 less than the amount he had won in his previous 10 tournaments combined.

Jake McCain was slowed in the early going of the nonleague contest Saturday afternoon against Bishop Shanahan with a slight case of dehydration. "The heat got to me a little bit and then I drank too much water on the sideline," the senior running back and middle linebacker said. Thankfully for Penn Charter, McCain was his usual bullish self down the stretch. He helped the injury- and illness-depleted Quakers put together a 19-play, 88-yard drive over the final 11 minutes of the game to run down the clock and turn back the Eagles, 19-12, in their first game at the school's new turf field.

When Justin Rose saw Aronimink Golf Club for the first time last year, he felt his best approach was, in his terms, to "take what you can get. " He got plenty. He set a course record of 64 in the second round of the AT&T National, grabbed a 5-stroke lead with nine holes to play, and held off a charge by Ryan Moore to capture the tournament by 1 shot for his second PGA Tour win in the span of about a month. "If there's one thing about not having played a golf course before, you come into it with no preconceived notions," Moore said earlier this month in a conference call with reporters.

Fourth in a series BOSTON - If you've spent enough time around a golf course in your life, you have invariably heard the phrase: "You drive for show but putt for dough. " Anyone who has three-putted in an important match can sympathize with the phrase coined in the 1940s by four-time British Open winner Bobby Locke. Today, you probably head back to the clubhouse after your round, pull out your scorecard and, over the course of some cold beverages, count your number of putts to determine whether your round was a success or failure.

THERE WAS a time when Sean O'Hair was considered one of the best young talents on the PGA Tour. For all of the obvious reasons. Now, that seems like such a long time ago. It happens. Ask Anthony Kim. And it's hardly like he's the only other one. Once, O'Hair was threatening to crack the top 10 of the world rankings. These days, he's just below 200. He's gone through, as you might expect, a bunch of changes trying to make things right. His former caddie, Paul Tesori, was on the bag for Webb Simpson when he won last year's U.S. Open.

The question lingers in the air like an odd smell for Tiger Woods, even though he has won six times in his last 20 golf tournaments and has completed a 21/2-year run to again rise to No. 1 in the world. Does he need to win a major before he is declared all the way back? Woods' 14th major championship victory came in the 2008 U.S. Open when he hobbled around Torrey Pines for much of the championship, including a 19-hole Monday playoff, on one leg. He hasn't won a major since, a run of 18 straight, while enduring assorted injuries and a scandal that ended his marriage.

BETHESDA, Md. - To Tiger Woods' way of thinking, people have short memories, as illustrated by the guy who asked him at Monday's AT&T National media day: "How will you know when you're back?" "Well, I won a tournament already," Woods said, sparking laughter from the audience at Congressional Country Club as he referred to his victory in March at the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill. Woods' win - his seventh at Bay Hill - broke a PGA Tour drought that had stretched back to September of 2009, or shortly before the time his life started to unravel with revelations about his marital infidelity.

In his first six years on the PGA Tour, Sean O'Hair made the game of golf look easy, with three victories and the consistency that had many considering him among the best players on the circuit under the age of 30. The current year, however, has seen him go through his first slump. He has spent much of 2011 not shooting the scores to which he has been accustomed; only one of his first 26 rounds was in the 60s. His world ranking, No. 43 at the start of 2011, has dropped to 102. Now as the West Chester resident returns home to prepare for the AT&T National beginning Thursday at Aronimink Golf Club, he feels his game is coming back.
