There's no telling who was correct in the Ben Wright flap of last weekend, but if he said anything remotely close to what was reported--that lesbians on the tour are hurting women's pro golf--Wright was wrong. Nothing seems to be hurting women's golf. Or men's golf. Or senior golf. It's all booming. There's even a 24-hour golf channel, for goodness' sake. And then there's tennis. There was a time when golf and tennis were considered equals. Not anymore.

Pelican Hill Golf Club, thanks to its location overlooking the Pacific Ocean along the Newport Coast, has been called "Pebble Beach South." Such remarks are usually made in promotional copy aimed at luring golfers to one of the two courses that sit on the bluffs above Crystal Cove State Park. Rob Ford, director of golf at Pelican Hill, knows the idea of such comparisons makes purists cringe. "The thing we just don't have," Ford said, "is the rich tournament history of Pebble Beach."

Because one of golf's natural inclinations is to search for something new (see graphite, titanium, oversizing), here comes a 24-year-old Floridian with a loopy grin, a surfer's haircut and a killer golf game. It's David Duval, who finished second to winner Peter Jacobsen last week at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am and already has some good things expected of him.
