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.

GAINESVILLE, Va. - Tiger Woods is in contention for his first victory in nearly two years after a 5-under 66 in the second round of the Quicken Loans National. Woods birdied six of his final 13 holes. The unlikeliest was his final birdie, a 36-footer on his next-to-last hole that he celebrated with a big fist pump. Woods is tied for fifth, 3 shots behind leader Ryo Ishikawa. LPGA TURNBERRY, Scotland - Suzanne Petterson shot a 3-under 69 in the second round of the Women's British Open to move to 7-under 137 and took a 2-stroke lead over four other golfers.

OK, SO Jordan Spieth didn't become the youngest player to win golf's oldest major since 1893. Nor did he become only the second man, and first since fellow Texan Ben Hogan 62 years ago, to win the first three modern-era majors in a season. It means he can't win the Grand Slam, something only Bobby Jones in 1930 has ever been able to pull off. Instead, like Arnold Palmer in 1960 and Jack Nicklaus a dozen years later, Spieth's pursuit of immortality came to an end by a single shot at the Open Championship.

ST. ANDREWS, Scotland – On a day in which just about anyone with a pulse was going way low at the Old Course, the most notable exception turned out to be the guy who'd won two of his 14 majors here by a combined 13 strokes. That, of course, was a long time ago, when days like this were his domain. But Tiger Woods will turn 40 in a little over five months. And he's now a little over seven years removed from his last indelible moment. As occasionally happens, the birthplace of golf was left defenseless by rather benign early weather conditions on Thursday.

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.

ANYONE WHO says golf isn't entertaining wasn't paying attention to the British Open yesterday. There was ESPN analyst Paul Azinger, who won the PGA Championship in 1993, dressing down Tiger Woods. And speaking of dressing, who told John Daly it was OK to wear pajamas on the course? Azinger teed off on Tiger several times, even going so far as to call him a "hack. " Here's are some of Paul's best on-air zingers: * "It's hard to watch the greatest player of this generation be a middle-of-the-pack hack.

ST. ANDREWS, Scotland –  Tiger Woods is listed at 25-1 by Ladbroke's in his quest to win a fourth claret jug in the Open Championship, which begins tomorrow on the Old Course, where he won by eight in 2000 and again by a handful when golf's oldest major returned to its home five years later. You could argue that weighing all factors, it actually should be more like 250-1, even with defending champion Rory McIlroy, the bloke who might be the next Tiger, recuperating from the recent soccer mishap that left him with a ruptured ankle ligament (brain freeze?

The former Dodgers manager told the Los Angeles Times over the weekend that Rose has no business participating in pregame ceremonies at tomorrow night's All-Star Game in Cincinnati. Never mind that Charlie Hustle is beloved in the town where he played and managed. There are, apparently, no gray areas in Lasorda's Dodger Blue world. "You have got to be out," Lasorda told the Times. "He has got to be suspended for life.
