The names on the lockers this week at Mission Hills go like this, in order, Naree, Aree, Karrie. . . . We may be talking the chain of command on the LPGA Tour in the next few years. Naree and Aree Wongluekiet are 14-year-old amateurs playing in their second Nabisco Championship, where Karrie Webb is not only the defending champion but also the top player in the game. At this point, Webb is hoping nobody is too quick to tear the pages from the calendar.

Annika Sorenstam's course this week in the du Maurier Classic is the prudent one: fairways and greens. Putt for birdie, but be satisfied with par. So far, so good. In the first two rounds of the LPGA's last major tournament of 2000, Sorenstam shot consecutive three-under-par 69s to take a one-stroke lead over Canada's Lorie Kane at Alymer, Canada.

On a day when 14-year-old Aree Wongluekiet and veteran Dottie Pepper faded from the lead, Mi Hyun Kim survived a triple-bogey on the 17th hole and a two-hole sudden-death playoff against fellow South Korean Jeong Jang to win the LPGA Safeway Golf Championship Sunday at Portland, Ore. Kim, the 1999 rookie of the year, gave up the lead twice to Jang on the back nine, but forced the playoff with a birdie on No. 18 to finish with a 72 for a three-day total of one-under 215.
