The Week Oct. 31-Nov. 6

Rival this: First, Mickelson snaps Tiger's win streak, then he
catches Woods from behind.

Hit in Miss.
Steve Lowery finally gets it right. On his fifth try he holds on
to a final-round lead.

Lorie needed 122 tries to get her first W but has since won
three of nine starts.

We were starting to worry about Tom Watson's nerves. Guess it
was just a case of rookie jitters.

Front Men
Darren Clarke and Lee Westwood take their race to supplant Monty
down to the wire.

--PGA Mickelson credited his new putter, a Scotty Cameron
prototype with a teryllium insert, and ball, a Titleist Pro V1,
for his two-stroke victory over Woods in the Tour Championship
at East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta.... Lowery made a 40-foot putt
for birdie to beat Skip Kendall on the first hole of a playoff
at the Southern Farm Bureau Classic at Annandale Golf Club in
Madison, Miss.... Jim Furyk, who sprained his right wrist at a
Steelers-Ravens game in Baltimore two weeks ago when he slipped
playing catch in the parking lot, withdrew from the Tour
Championship and this week's American Express Championship.

--LPGA Kane made four birdies on the back nine on Sunday, then
birdied the first hole of a playoff against Sophie Gustafson in
the Mizuno Classic at the Seta Golf Course in Otsu-Shiga, Japan.

--SENIOR Watson's only win of 2000 came by a shot over John
Jacobs at the Senior Tour Championship at the TPC at Myrtle
Beach, S.C.... Larry Nelson tied for 10th to claim the money
title with $2.7 million.

--ALSO At the Volvo Masters in Jerez, Spain, Pierre Fulke's
one-stroke victory over Clarke--who nearly missed his
third-round tee time after locking himself in a
bathroom--ensured a close finish in the race for the European
money crown. With a week to go, Clarke leads Westwood by only
$93K, and one of them will end Colin Montgomerie's seven-year
reign as leading money winner.
