GULLANE, Scotland - A blue sky and a gentle breeze usually means ripe scoring conditions at the British Open. Just not on the brown links of Muirfield. Zach Johnson handled it better than anyone yesterday. Helped along by a 45-foot eagle putt and only one bogey despite trouble lurking around every pot bunker, Johnson had a 5-under 66 for a one-shot lead, the first time he's been atop the leaderboard at any major since he rallied to win the Masters 6 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 5-year drought in the majors.

FORT WORTH, Texas - Jason Dufner matched playing partner Zach Johnson's birdie putt on the 17th hole Saturday, then overcame a wayward final tee shot to save par and keep the lead at the Crowne Plaza Invitational. Dufner shot a 4-under 66 in the third round for a 15-under 195 total. That put him a stroke ahead of Johnson, who shot 65. Tom Gillis was a distant third at 7 under after a 69 at the Colonial Country Club. Dufner, the winner last week in the Byron Nelson Championship about 30 miles away, could become the first player to win both tour events in the Dallas-Fort Worth area in the same year since Ben Hogan in 1946.

FORT WORTH, Texas - Zach Johnson won the PGA Tour's Crown Plaza Invitational for his first victory since also winning at the Colonial Country Club, a.k.a. Hogan's Alley, two years ago. Johnson was assessed a 2-stroke penalty for failing to replace his ball to its original position after marking it on the 18th hole. That left him with a 2-over 72 and a 1-stroke victory over Jason Dufner. Johnson finished at 12-under 268 for his eighth PGA Tour title. Dufner closed with a 74. Tommy Gainey was a distant third at 7 under after a 67.   PGA Seniors BENTON HARBOR, Mich.

LAKE ORION, Mich. - Roger Chapman won the U.S. Senior Open by 2 strokes. He shot a 4-under-par 66 Sunday to finish the tournament at 10 under, joining impressive company. Chapman, Jack Nicklaus, Gary Player, and Hale Irwin are the only players to win the U.S. Senior Open and Senior PGA Championship in the same year. The Briton's career highlight before this year was a European Tour win in Brazil 12 years ago. Bernhard Langer, Fred Funk, Tom Lehman, and Corey Pavin finished tied for second at 8-under 272 in the Champions Tour's fourth of five majors.

PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. - The Players Championship still lacks some definition going into the weekend. At least it still has one of golf's star attractions. In what looks to be a neighborhood block party, Sea Island residents Matt Kuchar and Zach Johnson steered clear of trouble Friday and shared the 36-hole lead with Kevin Na. They had a 1-shot lead over Harris English, a PGA Tour rookie who also lives 100 miles to the north at Sea Island. The attention shifted to Tiger Woods, who with one burst of birdies went from a guy struggling to make the cut to being on the periphery of contention.

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.

At the start of the week, nobody would have been surprised to see veteran Davis Love III make today's final of the Match Play Championship. But Geoff Ogilvy? It'll be Love vs. Ogilvy, however, in the 36-hole showdown after each player survived five grueling matches, including yesterday's quarter- and semifinals, to give themselves a shot at the $1.35 million winner's check and one of the four World Golf Championship titles. Love, who made it to the finals against Tiger Woods in 2004, played his way past Chris DiMarco and Padraig Harrington, among others, this week before ousting Zach Johnson, 4 and 2, in yesterday's semifinals.

Sean O'Hair got to do yesterday what every child who ever played a sport dreams of doing. He beat one of his heroes. In this case, it was the popular Fred Couples, who, at 46, is twice his age and very much in the midst of a career resurgence. After Couples battled back from 3-down through 10 holes in the first round of the Match Play Championship, O'Hair ended it by sinking a 17-foot birdie putt on the first playoff hole. "Huge" is how O'Hair, 23, from West Chester, described the victory, which sent him into today's second round against Zach Johnson, a 1-up winner over Jim Furyk.

Sean O'Hair was taken down yesterday in the second round of the Match Play Championship, but not without a serious fight. Sloppy early going left O'Hair 3-down against Zach Johnson on the 16th tee at La Costa Resort and Spa. That's when O'Hair started scrambling. He carded two do-or-die birdies before Johnson ended the rally with a birdie at the 18th for a 1-up win. "I couldn't get anything going, and when I finally did, it was too late," said O'Hair, the 23-year-old from West Chester.

ST. ANDREWS, Scotland - In 2011, a 21-year-old Rory McIlroy had the 63-hole lead at the Masters before barfing on the final nine. Two months later, he won the U.S. Open by eight shots to get his first major title. He, of course, has since added three more. Last month, 31-year-old Dustin Johnson, who probably should have a few majors already, lost the U.S. Open by three-putting the final hole from 15 feet. Now, one of the game's longest hitters is trying to finally nab that elusive first major on his very next try, at golf's oldest major.

AUGUSTA, Ga. - Talk about an unkind cut. The qualifying number for the weekend at the Masters came in at 4-over-par 148, and the likes of Phil Mickelson, Ernie Els, Sergio Garcia, Webb Simpson, and past champions Charl Schwartzel and Zach Johnson will not be seen any more this year at Augusta National Golf Club. Mickelson, three-time winner of the green jacket, was betrayed again by his short game. He carded a triple-bogey 6 at No. 12, going from front bunker to back bunker with his second shot, and back bunker to front bunker with his third.

GULLANE, Scotland - The stretching routine that Miguel Angel Jimenez goes through before each round may look a bit ridiculous. It's sure working out, though. The fun-loving Spaniard, again showing how much experience matters at golf's oldest major championship, scrambled for an even-par 71 on Friday 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 just 1 stroke behind, a group that also included English favorite Lee Westwood, long-hitting American Dustin Johnson, and Sweden's Henrik Stenson.

MICHAEL ALLEN shot a 7-under-par 63 yesterday and broke away from the pack for a five-stroke lead after the second round of the U.S. Senior Open. Allen was among seven players who shared the first-round lead at 3-under. He birdied five of the first eight holes and eagled the par-5 14th while shooting his best round of the year in hot, breezy conditions at the par-70 Omaha Country Club. Allen's 36-hole lead is the largest in the event's 34-year history. Rocco Mediate, at 5-under, is his closest pursuer.
