Thank goodness Jack Nicklaus turned 70 on Thursday. Because if you are the Golf Channel and you're televising the Bob Hope Classic for three hours on that afternoon and there is no golf and only rain, you've got time to fill. Billy Andrade, who along with Judy Rankin is a new member of the Golf Channel team, said he was enjoying the free-flowing, on-the-fly experience Thursday. For example, he got to tell of his first meeting with Nicklaus. It was when Andrade was playing college golf at Wake Forest when Nicklaus' son, Jackie, was playing at North Carolina.

He shot a 63 at Pebble Beach, but Billy Andrade said his score doesn't really compare to Phil Mickelson's 62 Thursday at Spyglass Hill. "I said, 'How many holes did he play? Did he play them all?' My gosh. No, I think a 62 over there is pretty damn sporty. I think a 63 over here is pretty sporty as well, but Spyglass is definitely the toughest course we play in this tournament."

There it is. The Enemy. Public Enemy No. 1. The Rack. Murder Incorporated. Jack the Ripper. Al Capone. Himmler. Torquemada. Eighteen holes of silent screaming. The enemy in other sports is, like as not, some tattooed scowling rogue with hair on his chest and murder in his heart who'll hit on the break and fight dirty--rabbit-punch you, thumb you in the eye, maybe bite in the clinches.

Billy Andrade beat the course he hates with a nine-under-par 63 and built a three-shot lead Thursday in the first round of the $1.1-million Northern Telecom Open. Andrade did most of his damage to the water-logged Starr Pass course with a streak that included seven birdies and an eagle during a nine-hole stretch beginning on the seventh. "The best score, the best round of my life," Andrade said. "Until today, I hated this course. It's the reason I haven't played here since '88."

There's an old saying in golf that all the bad breaks you get will be evened out by good breaks over the course of a round. For Billy Andrade it didn't happen in one round, and it may not be complete redemption, but his misfortune from two weeks ago took a turn for the better when he won the EMC Golf Skills Challenge at Ojai Valley Inn and Spa on Monday. Andrade finished the recently completed PGA Tour season ranked No. 31 on the money list.

Billy Andrade sounded apologetic after beating Jeff Sluman in a playoff to win the Kemper Open at Potomac, Md., for his first victory on the PGA Tour. "It's unfortunate that it had to be him," Andrade said. "If I beat (Greg) Norman or somebody, then it would have been really unbelievable. But beating somebody that I'm so close to, it's difficult."

Roger Clemens didn't only win a playoff game Saturday night for the New York Yankees. He also helped Billy Andrade win a golf tournament.

While golf's international stars faded and failed in the stretch run Sunday, Billy Andrade seized command and went on to his second consecutive PGA Tour victory. "Just like last week, coming down the stretch, I felt like I was in control," Andrade said after his two-stroke victory in the Buick Classic at Harrison, N.Y. He established that control with a one-under 34 over the difficult back nine at the Westchester Country Club, shot 68 for the day and had an 11-under-par 273 total.
