Welcome to the Joe Inman Classic at Joe Inman Country Club. . . . All right, it's really the SBC Senior Classic at Wilshire Country Club but there is clearly an Inman tint to the thing. Last year, he won the tournament. Two years ago, he won the tournament. And after Friday's first round, Inman is leading the tournament. What does that say about the tournament? "Weird," Inman said. "Very weird." You could build a case for that, all right.

Joe Inman lies on the trainer's table, face down, heat pack on his back, but resolute. He has just hung up on his wife, knowing full well how sensible she sounds by telling him to withdraw from the SBC Senior Classic. But he doesn't want to listen. This is his tournament. Officials have changed the venue, moving the SBC from Wilshire Country Club to Valencia, and they've changed the month, moving it from October to March, but Inman feels the need to proceed.

By now, we know that there are certain rules in golf that will never change. A birdie is always one shot under par. The fairway is a better place to be than the rough. A golf ball is round, and a flagstick is straight. You can never stop Joe Inman at Wilshire Country Club, you can only hope to contain him. There was no containing Inman this week at Wilshire, where the excitable, talkative, 52-year-old from Marietta, Ga., won the $1.4-million SBC Senior Classic for the third year in a row.

The first time was unexpected. The second time was a financial feather in the cap. The third time was charming. The fourth time will be an uphill battle. Joe Inman, three-time champion of the SBC Senior Classic, has been receiving treatment for a strained back and sore ribs, and did not rule out withdrawing from this year's tournament, which begins Friday at Valencia Country Club. "It's no good if I'm playing and not playing well," said Inman, who injured himself on the tour last month.

Today's important golf question is whether a perpetually peppy, power-walking former golf club salesman who has never won a Senior PGA Tour event can get past one of the game's preeminent players who has a personality drier than a summer sidewalk back home in Oklahoma and who already has won 14 times in two years? "Who knows?" said Joe Inman. "You never know," said Gil Morgan.

Say what you will about Wilshire Country Club (Uh, it's tiny and it's easy?), but it is the finest piece of short-grass real estate in the golfing world. Isn't that right, Joe Inman? "It is a special place," he said. Why, it's only one Matterhorn short of being Inman's personal Disneyland of golf courses. Wilshire is the Happiest Place on Earth for Inman, who is one round away from winning his third consecutive senior tour event at the quaint, friendly course here on the edge of Hancock Park.

So what's the deal with this Joe Inman character? What's the best way to describe what he's all about? Is it . . . No thought left unspoken? Can't be beaten at Wilshire Country Club? Social commentator of our day? Take your pick. All we need to know is that for the second year in a row, the Pacific Bell Senior Classic was one big Joe Ride.

As soon as his golf ball disappeared into the hole on the 18th green, Joe Inman dropped his putter, he pulled down the bill of his cap and he started to cry. Then he started to talk. And talk. And talk. As Inman might say about himself, "Lor-DEE, son, can you talk!" Well, yes, he sure can. Wherever Inman is this morning, chances are he's still yakking about how he won his first Senior PGA Tour event, the $1.
