Aronimink Golf Club, which relinquished its opportunity to host the 1993 PGA Championship more than a decade ago because it felt it could not comply with minority-membership guidelines at that time, has been selected as the site of the 2003 Senior PGA Championship, the PGA of America announced yesterday. The Newtown Square club, designed by legendary architect Donald Ross and opened in 1928, served as host for the 1962 PGA Championship, which was won by Gary Player. The golf course underwent extensive renovations from August 2000 through March, with greens, tees and fairways all redone with new bent grass.

Hale Irwin birdied the 18th hole yesterday to win the weather-plagued Senior PGA Championship in Louisville, Ky., by one stroke over Jay Haas. Irwin led after each round and finished at 8-under 276 to win the event for the fourth time. He won it 3 years in a row starting in 1996. Irwin, who will turn 59 on Thursday, was the oldest winner of the event since Pete Cooper won in 1976 at age 61. Haas, playing in his first senior event after turning 50 in December, missed a 10-foot birdie putt on 18 as co-leader Irwin watched from the fairway.

Rick Holanda, the man whose job it is to put Aronimink Golf Club's course in pristine shape for the Senior PGA Championship, rolled a Titleist across the ninth green one day last week and nodded his approval. "The PGA wants the greens at 11 1/2 on the Stimpmeter," said Holanda, golf course superintendent at Aronimink, referring to a crude but effective device for measuring the speed of the greens. "I'm going to try to convince them to let me take them to 12. I mean, our members play them at 12. " With only three weeks to go before Fuzzy Zoeller, Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer and the rest of the field of 144 of the game's elder statesmen arrive at Aronimink, it is getting close to crunch time.

Murota had a 1-shot edge over alternate Trevor Dodds, with former Masters and British Open winner O'Meara another stroke back at 68.

Even though he didn't win a single tournament on the PGA Tour, Brandt Jobe enjoyed a decent career there, winning more than $9 million.

One source said club officials already have approved the offer and a vote of the membership is all that is needed to bring the tour back to the Philadelphia area.

Senior golf got just what it needed yesterday, the return of the Big Three. For at least a day, Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus and Gary Player were again on center stage. The 71-year-old Palmer shot his age, Nicklaus, 61, matched his best round of the year in relation to par with a 4-under-par 68 and Player, 65, had a 70 as the trio stole all the attention in the first round of the Senior PGA Championship. You almost had to feel sorry for Jim Thorpe, who was hardly noticed in grabbing the lead with six birdies in a 67 on the tree-lined Ridgewood (N.J.

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.

THE PGA Championship counts the same as the Masters, U.S. Open and British Open. It just doesn't seem that way. Because, well, it's generally viewed as being fourth in the grand-slam pecking order. Just don't try selling that to five-time champion Jack Nicklaus, who I'm sure treasures those Wanamaker Trophies every bit as much as his other 13 major titles. Still . . . The Masters has the green jacket, and returns to the same TV-friendly venue every April. The U.S. Open is the national championship, and is the toughest tournament to win. The British Open is the oldest championship, and the one the rest of the world reveres most.

SO WHAT EXACTLY might the future hold for Merion Golf Club, as far as hosting more USGA events, maybe even at some point a sixth U.S. Open? The fifth - but first in 32 years - ended Sunday with Justin Rose holding the trophy, his first at any major. For the most part, everything went about as well as could be expected, despite the obvious logistical issues that holding it on such a small piece of property entails. But since nobody broke par, there can be no more questions about the East Course withstanding the test of time.
