PITTSFORD, N.Y. - Phil Mickelson admits he had a dream the night before the final round of the U.S. Open at Merion Golf Club that he had won the championship. Once he awoke, it took him at least a full minute to realize he actually hadn't done it. Now when Mickelson wakes up in the morning, he takes a look at the Claret Jug to prove to himself that winning the British Open was real. "I just remember feeling that elation, and for the past week or two that I've had the Claret Jug, I've been looking at it when I wake up just to make sure it wasn't a dream," Mickelson said Tuesday at Oak Hill Country Club after completing a practice round for the PGA Championship and signing autographs for more than half an hour.

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.

GULLANE, Scotland - Tiger Woods was actually having a pretty good day, though the fans lining the seventh hole might have thought otherwise. They had the misfortune of having to listen as he unleashed a string of loud expletives directed at himself and a ball that bounced over the green into the rough. Hardly the way a gentleman golfer at the British Open is supposed to act, even if no one seemed to take much offense. Not with home favorite Lee Westwood on the green putting for birdie in a championship that even on Saturday was already becoming a two-man show within a show.

GULLANE, Scotland - Lee Westwood has contended enough in the majors that he can identify important moments, even if he could barely see his ball. He had a 1-shot lead over Tiger Woods, standing in grass up to his knees in the dunes left of the par-3 16th hole. It was one of the few bad shots Westwood hit Saturday at Muirfield, and by far his worst predicament. He slashed at the ball and it didn't reach the green. He used a putter to belt his next shot up the hill to 12 feet. What followed was a finish that allowed him to believe he was closer than ever to ending his 20-year pursuit of a major.

GULLANE, Scotland - Miguel Angel Jimenez' preround stretching is getting a lot of the attention, but his golf is what could help him grab a place in history. The fun-loving Spaniard scrambled for an even-par 71 yesterday that was good enough to lead midway through the British Open at baked-out Muirfield. He can hardly relax. Tiger Woods was among four players only one stroke behind, a group that included English favorite Lee Westwood, long-hitting American Dustin Johnson, and Sweden's Henrik Stenson.

GULLANE, Scotland - A blue sky and a gentle breeze usually mean ripe scoring conditions at the British Open. Just not on the brown links of Muirfield. Zach Johnson handled it better than anyone on Thursday. Helped along by a 45-foot eagle putt and only one bogey despite trouble lurking around every bunker, Johnson had a 5-under 66 for a 1-shot lead, the first time he's been atop the leader board at a major since he rallied to win the Masters six years ago. Tiger Woods more than survived the late end of the draw, after the sun had thoroughly baked out the crispy greens and allowed only eight of the 20 rounds under par. He knocked one putt clear off the green, but 10 one-putts - most of them for pars - carried him to a 69, a good start in his bid to end his five-year drought in the majors.

DAZED AND confused, that's what Rory McIlroy says he was after blowing up for an 8-over 79 in the opening round of 2013 British Open yesterday at Muirfield in Scotland. It was a day lowlighted by two double-bogeys on the back nine by the No. 2-ranked player in the world. "It's strange," McIlroy told the media after his round. "I mean, I wish I could stand up here and tell you guys what's wrong or what I need to do to make it right, because I feel like I've got the shots. I don't know what you can do. You've just got to try and play your way out of it. "But it's nothing to do with technique.

MUIRFIELD. Located on the northeast coast of Scotland, not far from Edinburgh, it's considered the fairest test of any course on the Open Championship rotation, because it doesn't contain nearly as many of those quirky bounces and hidden dangers that define links golf. But that doesn't mean it's any less daunting. There are no trees or water hazards to contend with, but the thick rough and small greens more than make up for that. The two nines rotate in opposite directions, with the back (which goes clockwise)

GULLANE, Scotland - Tiger Woods said his ailing left elbow is "good to go" for the British Open, and he insisted yesterday there's no loss of confidence despite the longest stretch of his career without a major title. Woods held his regular session with the media ahead of the British Open at Muirfield, where he resumes his quest for a 15th major title. Once considered a lock to break Jack Nicklaus' record, he hasn't won one of golf's biggest events since the 2008 U.S. Open. "I feel very good about my game," Woods said.

GULLANE, Scotland - Jordan Spieth has a problem that would be a major irritation to most teenagers. His cellphone keeps cutting out since he arrived in Scotland. "Honestly, my service plan is not working too hot over here," Spieth said Tuesday, strolling slowly toward the lunch tent at Muirfield. But Spieth isn't like most teens. This past weekend, the 19-year-old from Texas became the youngest PGA Tour winner in 82 years. Within hours, he was on a charter flight across the Atlantic, where he'll play in his first British Open beginning Thursday.
