BOTTOM LINES

May 25, 1997

U.S. OPENS ON TV: There will be 27 hours of coverage from
Congressional next month. The women will get 14 hours at Pumpkin
Ridge.

PHIL SIMMS: The U.S. Open entry of the former Giants
quarterback was the first one received by the USGA.

THE MASTERS: Ticket requests for the practice rounds must be
received by July 15. Think they'll sell out?

MARKET MOVER: Focused on Alan Greenspan's musings?
Price-earnings ratios? Here's a better indicator. The week after
Tiger Woods won the Masters, golf stocks rose 6%.

EQUAL RIGHTS: Connecticut passes a bill making it illegal for
private clubs to discriminate against women members. Look for
more states to force clubs into the 20th century.

DAVID LEADBETTER: He says Tiger "has a presence, an aura like
Norman had and Faldo still does." Norman had?

YIKES! SPIKES: Should the Tour ban metal spikes? "No," says Brad
Faxon. "That will never happen." Yo, Brad, last week at the
Cadillac NFL Classic, 72% of the Seniors went spikeless.

STEWART CINK: Everyone's preseason can't-miss has missed the cut
in four of his last five Tour starts.
