The disqualification of Chip Richter, the third-round leader, from last week's Pennsylvania Amateur Championship was proof that even the best players casually violate the Rules of Golf without realizing it. Richter's breach of the rules came on the third hole of the final round when he misidentified a regular water hazard (yellow stakes and markings) for a lateral water hazard (red stakes and markings). He had reached the fourth green when the violation was uncovered, and he was disqualified.

YOUR CHEATIN' HEART Don't kid yourself that you're doing your spouse a favor by having an affair. The thesis that extramarital loving can revive intra-marital loving doesn't hold water, psychologist Judith F. Slater writes in Lear's magazine. "While (an affair) may begin as an attempt to solve a problem, it can easily become the overwhelming problem. " A PRESSURE SITUATION Sorry, but moderate exercise alone does not appear to lower blood pressure enough for it to be a reasonable alternative to antihypertension medicines, says a new study in the Journal of the American Medical Association.

Mark Brooks birdied the second hole in a sudden-death playoff yesterday to defeat Dave Barr in the $700,000 Greater Hartford Open in Cromwell, Conn. The playoff was set up when Brooks, who had made an eagle on the 12th hole and a birdie on No. 15 to go to 16 under par, bogeyed the 16th to fall back into a three-way tie with Barr and Joey Sindelar. Sindelar hit into the water and double-bogeyed the first playoff hole, No. 16, to fall out of the playoff. After his second shot fell short on the par-4, 399-yard 17th hole, Barr - using a lefthanded stance - made a miraculous chip from the edge of a water hazard to get close to the pin. But the Canadian's shot went for naught when Brooks, who shot a 69 in regulation play, made his five-foot putt to earn the $126,000 winner's check.

Henrik Stenson was famous for reasons he never imagined. Two months ago, he was best known as the Swede who stripped down to nothing but his underwear and a golf glove while playing from a water hazard at Doral. Out of curiosity, he searched the Internet and found 143 articles, more news than he ever got for his game. "I guess I got as much attention off that thing as from my results the last 10 years," he said. His golf was all the rage yesterday at The Players Championship in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla. With a final round that was close to perfect, Stenson was the only player to keep bogeys off his card on his way to a 6-under 66 that gave him a four-shot victory, the 10th of his career.

There are no whales, castles or one-eyed pirates. No lions or lighthouses, either. Instead there's lots of grass, loads of shrubs and plenty of trees. There's also a waterfall flowing into a lake which someday might be stocked with fish and sprout water lilies. Clearly, this is not your run-of-the-windmill slice of family recreation, or competition - whatever course you choose - that's been around for more than a half-century. In fact, it's downright above par. It's a plush, snazzy miniature golf course being built on City Avenue west of 77th Street, in Overbrook Park.

Summer is the drowning season, and doctors are advocating new prevention strategies built on a better understanding of risks in the water. While parents at the beach may worry about their children being swept away by a giant wave, there may be more to fear from backyard pools. Also, being a competent pool swimmer doesn't guarantee a person's safety in other types of water, such as lakes and rivers. "People need to be aware of the potential dangers," said Christine Branche, director of the division of unintentional injury prevention at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

From a car passing on Interstate 95, they still look impressive, the 33 mothballed Navy ships now docked at the Philadelphia shipyard basin at the bottom of Broad Street. But up close, the mothballed vessels are rusting shadows of their past glory. It's unlikely they'll ever return to roaming the high seas - but they might be useful sinking to the bottom of the sea. Philadelphia is always on the lookout for a new line of business to replace the industries that have fled.

Elverson builder Merle Stoltzfus has presented a near-perfect plan to some hard-to-sell officials in three northern Chester County communities. They like the idea of a golf course community dotted with small village-like developments winding through the verdant hillsides of the area. They even like the idea of irrigating the golf course with wastewater from the sewage system and running public water lines from Elverson for the proposed development. But concerns over how far the Elverson Water Co., which is owned by Stoltzfus, can expand beyond the golf course development have led Warwick and East Nantmeal Townships to file a formal protest with the Public Utility Commission, the agency that makes the ultimate decision on the water company's franchise territory.

Watch the 17th. The hole could win or lose the Ryder Cup. It is the 511-yard par 5 redesigned four years ago by Seve Ballesteros, the European captain. And it is a killer. The Americans were complaining about it after two days of practice. Ballesteros shook off criticism of his man-made monster. "If you don't like it," he said of the 17th, "it's only because you don't know how to play it. You should have your match won before you get to 17, and you won't have to worry about it. " Even a perfect tee shot can get golfers in trouble.

Willie Wood says it's time to turn the page. He has a new wife, and a new life. It's been eight years since his first wife, Holly, lost her battle with cancer, leaving behind two young children. Wood, who enjoyed an outstanding junior amateur career, was trying to establish himself on the PGA Tour at the time. He's still trying. The emotional detour certainly had an effect. But Wood, who turns 37 in six weeks, isn't blaming his personal tragedy for his professional plight.
