Phil Mickelson has agreed to compete in the LG Skins Game, the first time in 5 years the three-time major champion will play in the event. Mickelson, the No. 2 player in the world and a two-time winner on the PGA Tour this year, joins a four-man field that includes two-time defending champion Stephen Ames. The other two spots will be filled out this summer, although an invitation has been offered to Sergio Garcia as winner of The Players Championship. The LG Skins Game, which began in 1983, will be played Nov. 29-30 at Indian Wells Golf Resort in California.

Tiger Woods' father, angry at not being invited to the Ryder Cup by the PGA of America, said he would skip the three-day golf competition between the United States and Europe. "This is my protest at the way they treat the parents," Earl Woods was quoted as saying in yesterday's The Mail on Sunday of London. "It makes no sense, and it's not justified. Tiger is only 21 and does not have a girlfriend, but they don't think enough of the parents to invite them instead. " The PGA of America pays the expenses of wives or girlfriends of the 12 U.S. golfers to the biennial event, which begins Friday in Spain.

Tiger Woods has started to hit balls with short irons and says he is able to stabilize his rebuilt left knee. The 14-time major champion says he is on schedule to play the Masters. Woods had reconstructive surgery a week after winning a playoff for the U.S. Open title in June. His news conference in Thousand Oaks, Calif., yesterday was his first since that victory. Six months after surgery to repair a ruptured ligament - his third operation in six years - Woods said he was excited: "Everything has been right on schedule.

Is Tiger Woods as good as he was in 2000? Could he be even better? Can he win his third major of the year? As Woods and a phalanx of would-be pursuers prepare for tomorrow's start of the PGA Championship at Baltusrol Golf Club, these loom as the biggest questions in golf. In 2000, when he won three majors in a year, it seemed that Woods couldn't possibly be any more dominating and intimidating. And he didn't just win; he humbled the field in the U.S. Open at Pebble Beach by 15 shots, he cruised to an 8-shot victory in the British Open at St. Andrews, and he closed the deal at the PGA Championship at Valhalla by nipping Bob May in a playoff.

Golf superstar and all-around nice guy Tiger Woods has become engaged to his Swedish sweetie, Elin Nordegren. "She called this morning and was incredibly happy," Nordegren's father, Thomas, told the Swedish newspaper Expressen. "I only spoke shortly with them on the telephone, but they were happy and I congratulated them. " A spokesman for the Shamwari Game Reserve in South Africa said Woods, 27, proposed to the 23-year-old model Tuesday during a walk at the game park outside Port Elizabeth.

Activity in the fan zone located to the left of the fairway on the mammoth par-5, 605-yard ninth hole at Aronimink Golf Club came to a standstill when Tiger Woods stepped up to the tee Sunday in the final round of the AT&T National. It's good they were paying attention because Woods' drive was coming their way. The crowd scattered, then scrambled to see where the ball landed while roving marshals shooed them away and began to make a clearing. The ball came to a stop in front of a photo vendor on dirt packed so tightly it may as well have been concrete.

TIGER WOODS was never a child. He was a robot programmed to play golf by a demanding father much like Joe Jackson did with Michael. This programming reminds me of the East Germans and Soviet Union, which dominated the Olympics by separating their youth from their parents and sending them to a sports gulag. Remember that Andre Agassi recently admitted his hatred of tennis but was forced into it by a demanding parent. When children, like many child stars now living in misery, are forced to become adults, they then become children when they're adults.

Tiger Woods hit another one of those amazing shots that only he can hit yesterday - 217 yards, out of a bunker, up and over a stand of tall trees, nothing but pin. Then he made the 12-foot birdie putt. "It was one of the all-time best shots I've ever made," said Woods, who rarely speaks in superlatives. "I hit it so flush it was scary. " The latest installment in shots only Tiger Woods can pull off came in the early morning, when he was finishing the final two holes of his second round.

PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. - Tiger Woods keeps saying his return to peak form is a "process," and he says he continued on that path at the U.S. Open even if he didn't seriously challenge the leaders in Sunday's final round. Woods, who dazzled with a 15-shot victory the last time the Open was played at Pebble Beach Golf Links in 2000, carded a 72-hole score - a 3-over-par 287 - that was 15 strokes worse than his record score that year. He followed Saturday's scintillating 66 with a 75 in the final round.

UNIVERSITY PLACE, Wash. - You could hear the roars a mile away. First, for excellence; later, for courage. Jason Day thrilled thousands in the crowd at the U.S. Open when he overcame two bad breaks and holed out to make a brilliant birdie on the par-5 No. 1, his 10th hole of the day. A couple of hours later Friday, near the end of the most grueling walk in U.S. Open history, Day collapsed near the green after descending from the tee at...

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.

UNIVERSITY PLACE, Wash. - The artist had heard enough from the critics. Robert Trent Jones Jr. designed Chambers Bay to host a U.S. Open. Only 8 years old, the Bay undulates wildly from tee to green like St. Andrews and has waste areas like Pine Valley. It incorporates 1,000 feet of vertical climbs over a 7-mile trudge and can use vastly different tee boxes, depending on the USGA's whim and the prevailing winds. It is a taxing test, amplified by players' unfamiliarity with it . . . and their criticisms of it. That's why Robert Trent Jones Jr. snuck into Tiger Woods' news conference yesterday.

TIGER WOODS had the most memorable last-place finish in the history of golf yesterday. Woods, who is reinventing his swing, shot an 85 at the Memorial in Dublin, Ohio, on Saturday, his worst single-day score in 20 years on the PGA Tour. He followed that with a 2-over-par 74 yesterday to finish a career-worst 14-over-par 302, his highest score ever in a 72-hole tournament. That puts him on par with Roy McAvoy, the fictional golfer played by Kevin Costner in the film "Tin Cup" for unforgettable closing rounds.

TIGER WOODS is back in the game. The dating game, that is. Yesterday, he and Lindsey Vonn announced their breakup after seeing each other for more than two years "Lindsey and I have mutually decided to stop dating," Woods said on his website under the headline "A personal message from Tiger. " "I have great admiration, respect and love for Lindsey and I'll always cherish our time together. She has been amazing with [my children] Sam and Charlie and my entire family. Unfortunately, we lead very hectic lives and are both competing in demanding sports.

AUGUSTA, Ga. - If you'd told CBS before the first ball was struck this week that Rory McIlroy and Tiger Woods would be going out in the second-to-last group on Masters Sunday, they probably would've signed up. Especially the Tiger part. But who would ever figure that two of the five guys tied for fifth place after the first 54 holes of the season's first major would also be 10 strokes behind the record-setting pace being set by last April's runner-up, who appears to be about as precocious as they were at 21?

AUGUSTA, Ga. - Tiger Woods was unable to kick his game up another notch Sunday in the final round of the Masters, but he was pleased with his return to competition after a horrendous start to the year. Woods, who injured his right wrist at No. 9 but kept playing, carded a 1-over-par 73 for a 72-hole score of 5-under 283, tied for 17th. He had an eagle and two birdies, all coming on Augusta National's par-5s, but added five bogeys. For the day, he managed to hit just two fairways and seven greens.

AUGUSTA, Ga. - Before Jordan Spieth went out for another record-breaking day at the Masters, the hills and dales at Augusta National Golf Club reverberated with roars generated by the contestants who figured to be the two most watched at the start of the week. Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy, who teed off 30 minutes apart in the third round Saturday, both created buzz in the galleries by carding scores of 4-under-par 32 on the front nine. Alas, each came home in 36 for 68. Although tied for fifth at 6-under 210, they will play together in Sunday's final round 10 strokes behind Spieth.

AUGUSTA, Ga. - The birdies for Jordan Spieth in his first 52 holes of the Masters were flowing like the waters of Rae's Creek as he became only the second player in the history of this venerable event to reach 18-under par. But golf can be a cruel game, and Spieth felt it smack him Saturday at the 17th hole of Augusta National Golf Club, where a bad drive, a bad chip, and a couple of bad putts led to a double bogey and gave hope to pursuers Phil Mickelson...

He had such a great name. And, with his sweet swing, his broad shoulders, and his perfect hair and outfits, Bert Yancey looked as if he was born to golf. I discovered Yancey while watching the 1967 Masters. The fact that he had been a professional at the Green Valley Country Club in Lafayette Hill sparked my interest, but there was something more. Everything about the 29-year-old bespoke a competence. He seemed as solid as one of Augusta National's loblolly pines, playing with a perfect combination of determination, confidence, and poise.
