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.

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."

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."

Billy Andrade won the Bell Canadian Open on Sunday by purposely playing into the bunker and saving par to defeat Bob Friend on the first playoff hole at Oakville, Canada. The victory ended a seven-year drought for Andrade. He has won three times on the PGA Tour and has trailed going into the final round in all three. "When you don't win for awhile, you don't know if you're ever going to win again," said Andrade, who finished at 13-under 275 and won $396,000.

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.
