By the time Joey Sindelar was 12, he probably had played more golf than most will play in a lifetime. Instead of growing up with a basketball hoop on the garage, Sindelar had a putting green in his front yard, a golf course in the back, and a father intent on making little Joey a golfer.

Three new names charged up Saturday's leaderboard, two charged out once they finished, all while that pesky leader, Joey Sindelar, stuck around long enough to once again finish ahead after a dizzying afternoon at the AT&T Champions Classic at Valencia Country Club. One name proudly wears old-school knickers because they're more "comfortable," smokes profusely between punishingly long shots and hails from Mississippi, which is obviously distinguishable in his voice. Golfer: Steve Thomas.

Joey Sindelar had seven birdies and one bogey Thursday en route to a seven-under-par 63 that gave him the first-round lead in the $350,000 Southern Open golf tournament at Green Island Country Club. Sindelar was one shot in front of Clarence Rose, Tim Simpson and Billy Pierot.

Life can surprise you; no wonder Forrest Gump likened it to a box of chocolates. Example: You wake up on a Sunday counting the hours to a thrilling playoff game. And you get one, except Jim Nance is announcing it on CBS, not Al Michaels on ABC. Never in a million years did I imagine wanting to know the whys or whereabouts of Joey Sindelar, a nondescript, 46-year-old golfer built along the lines of Bill Parcells.

Joey Sindelar played the final 10 holes in seven under par Thursday and finished with a six-under-par 65 to take a one-stroke lead in the first round of the $400,000 B.C. Open golf tournament. Jay Delsing was second at 66, and Antonio Cerda was another stroke back after 18 holes on the En-Joie Golf Club course. "The last 10 holes, seven under, that will certainly turn you around and get it going in the right direction," said Sindelar, a native of nearby Horseheads, N.Y.

Joey Sindelar is all by himself, and Jeff Sluman has seen it before. Sindelar shot a two-under-par 69 Saturday and built an eight-stroke lead over his fellow New Yorker after three rounds of the $400,000 B.C. Open golf tournament at Endicott, N.Y. "Joey is kind of running away with it," Sluman said. "He deserves to win. It's the Joey Sindelar Story. It's happened to me before."

Ray Floyd climbed into the bunker with visions of a bogey--or worse--flashing through his mind. Then his eyes lit up. "I saw that the sand was raked up flush with the lip of the trap, so that there was no lip," Floyd said Saturday after the third round of the $700,000 Honda golf tournament. "I figured I had two options--use the sand wedge and try to play for a (bogey) four and I might make five, or go for the putter."

Joey Sindelar parred the first playoff hole to defeat Willie Wood and win a $1-million PGA tournament Sunday at Coal Valley, Ill. After both golfers hit their second shots into the rough on the par-four 16th hole, Sindelar chipped to within a foot of the cup while Wood's shot went six feet past the cup. Wood missed his attempt for par before Sindelar holed the short putt for the victory. They finished the tournament tied at 12-under-par 268 after Wood shot a 69 and Sindelar a 66.

Joey Sindelar, mired in a slump that has seen him miss the cut in his six events this year, had a hot putter again Friday and built a one-shot lead halfway through the BellSouth Classic at Duluth, Ga. His six-under-par 66 gave him a 10-under 134 total after two rounds on the rugged hills of the 7,259-yard TPC Sugarloaf club and the lead over John Huston, who shot 67 for 135.

Joey Sindelar had a hunch someone would come out of the pack to win the Wachovia Championship on Sunday at Charlotte, N.C. He just didn't think it would be him. Sindelar was 14 years and 370 tournaments removed from his last PGA Tour victory. He had spent the last five years struggling to keep his card. Worse yet, he was three shots behind with three holes to play at Quail Hollow, perhaps the most demanding finish on tour.

Joey Sindelar takes a three-shot lead and a certain amount of curiosity into today's final round of the $1.3-million Memorial tournament at Dublin, Ohio. "It'll be interesting to see how my nerves handle it," Sindelar said Saturday after taking command of the tournament with birdies on four of his last five holes. "It's been a long time for me," said Sindelar, in a slump for almost four years. "I might shoot 62 or I might shoot 77."

Joey Sindelar beat the field by two strokes in the Honda tournament at Coral Springs, Fla., Sunday. He beat darkness by a smaller margin. "It got down to the point where, technically, we could have stopped it on the last tee," Sindelar said after a long, slow trip over the TPC course at Eagle Trace. The wind, which helped produce some exotic scores--11 on a par-3, for example--slowed things down, even with the field playing in twosomes.

Ed Dougherty closed quickly and caught defending champion Joey Sindelar to share the lead in the second round of the $500,000 B.C. Open golf tournament Friday at Endicott, N.Y. Dougherty, who has never won in an 8-year career that was interrupted by a 4-year retirement, birdied the last three holes for a 4-under-par 67 that matched Sindelar at 10-under-par 132. "I had a lot of birdie opportunities but didn't putt well early in the round," Dougherty said."

Joey Sindelar figured he'd be long gone by the time the International tournament was decided. Instead, Sindelar was there at the finish Sunday to collect the $180,000 first prize when he scored a record 17 points under the unique scoring system to win the tournament at Castle Rock, Colo. "I've never been one to give up," Sindelar said. "But this just reinforces it." A day earlier, however, Sindelar was ready to throw in the towel.
