He's 50, he's losing his hair, his face has more lines than a road map and Jay Haas has never been better. At his age, he should be asking for the senior-citizen discount instead of showing the kids how it's done, such as shooting a 68 at the PGA Championship, which is what Haas did here Thursday at Whistling Straits. In fact, it's possible that the only thing more unexpected than Haas' opening round was that he was not alone.

Jay Haas used brilliant iron play to set up six birdie putts of six feet or less and take the third-round lead in the International at Castle Rock, Colo., on Saturday. Haas, in his 19th season on the PGA Tour, birdied the final two holes and scored 13 points for a 54-hole total of 28 in the tournament, which uses the modified Stableford scoring system. Lee Janzen and David Duval were at 25 points, and Tom Watson and Ernie Els were at 24.

It seemed like old times Saturday at the Bob Hope Chrysler Classic. No, change that. It was old times, especially at Indian Wells, where 48-year-old Jay Haas shot 63 for the second time in four days and took a one-stroke lead going into today's final round. If Haas wins, at least he's going to know how to act, because it would be nearly 14 years to the day that he won the Hope in 1988 at Indian Wells. Carrying it a step further, if Haas wins, he'll have PGA Tour victories in four decades.

Today's fifth and final round of the Bob Hope Chrysler Classic looks as if it's going to be a real horse race. It could be a Haas race. Or maybe it will be something resembling a cavalry charge. Who's going to win it? Right now, it's sort of like handicapping the handicaps. Jay Haas? The 72-hole leader went four years without a victory until he got one last year in Houston, and he now wonders if he'll be worried. Bob Tway?

The ball stopped 12 feet short of the cup on the 18th hole Sunday, and two things were evident to Jay Haas. If only he could two-putt, he would win $180,000. His 6-year-old son could two-putt from 12 feet. So Haas rolled in the putt for a birdie to win the Bob Hope Chrysler Classic by two shots at Indian Wells, which certainly got its revenge and where the leaders weren't exactly their normal par-busting selves.

Tiger Woods and his dominant game took a detour in the first round of the Players Championship on Thursday at Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla. That cleared the way for Jay Haas, Rocco Mediate, Bob Tway and Skip Kendall to tie for the early lead at four-under-par 68. Woods, coming off an 11-stroke victory at the Bay Hill Invitational for his third win in four tournaments this year, spent most of his morning playing from ankle-deep grass and rallied over the final few holes for a 72.
