I lived down here 'til my mother died when I was 7 years old.

Daniel Summerhays rebounded from a disappointing finish last week in Illinois to take the lead Thursday in the rain-delayed first round of the Sanderson Farms Championship at Madison, Miss. Four days after squandering the final-round lead in the John Deere Classic, Summerhays shot a nine-under-par 63 to open a three-stroke lead. He had an eagle and seven birdies in a bogey-free round in steamy conditions. Will Claxton, Michael Bradley and Jonathan Randolph shot 66. The entire afternoon group was unable to finish because of storms that hit the course in suburban Jackson.

Vijay Singh played a quick 13 holes and earned a hefty check that moved him closer to one of his career goals: winning the PGA Tour's season money title. Singh collected $630,000 for his four-shot win at the rain-delayed John Deere Classic on Monday at Silvis, Ill., moving ahead of Davis Love III on this year's tour earnings list. "My goal is to really be able to win the money list just once before I finish. This will probably be the best opportunity I get," said Singh, who has collected $5.

OK, so a John Deere tractor in the driveway of a Torrance tract home may seem a little out of place, but J.J. Stanley can explain. Mention the word "tractor" to Stanley, and you won't have to struggle for conversation for at least 45 minutes. "I'm just crazy about them," says the 64-year-old electronics engineer, who fittingly had a farm-themed party with the tractor and all the trappings July 25 to celebrate his retirement after 31 years at Hughes Aircraft.

ARDMORE, Pa. - Steve Stricker, true to his personality, played another wild and crazy round in the U.S. Open golf tournament Saturday. One double bogey. Two birdies. Even-par 70. Also, one semi-fist pump and a smile, followed quickly by a return to stone-faced composure. Mannequins have shown more emotion. The smile came after he saved par with a 13-foot putt on the 18th hole that left him a shot out of the lead going into Sunday's usual U.S. Open agony and ecstasy. "It was a big putt," Stricker said.

There is much to fret over these days. DirecTV has dumped Nickelodeon. Katie has dumped Tom. Ann Curry is out. Jeff Daniels, with almost no anchor experience, is suddenly in. Despite all our best efforts, the world remains a shifty place.

Zach Johnson lost sight of his ball after his bunker shot from 193 yards out during the second sudden-death playoff hole Sunday at the John Deere Classic in Silvis, Ill. But he liked what he heard. “I liked that crescendo from the crowd,” Johnson said. His ball bounced on the green, then ran up to less than a foot from the cup. An easy birdie putt later, Johnson had knocked off Troy Matteson, whose approach landed 43 feet away, for the tournament victory. An earlier roar from the crowd wasn't such a positive sign for Johnson, who held a one-stroke lead over Matteson while playing the 18th hole.

Defending champion Steve Stricker broke the 36-hole record at the John Deere Classic in Silvis, Ill., giving him a one-stroke lead entering Saturday's third round. Stricker, playing in the morning, shot a five-under-par 66 on Friday for a two-round total of 126, which is 16 under at the TPC Deere Run course. That was just good enough to hold off Paul Goydos , who shot only the fourth 59 in PGA Tour history in the opening round. Goydos couldn't maintain his deft putting touch and settled for a three-under 68, leaving him at 127. A relentless string of thunderstorms that began with 100 of the 156 golfers still to begin or complete the second round of the U.S. Women's Open caused play to be suspended at midafternoon in Oakmont, Pa. Cristie Kerr , the world's No. 1 player, and first-round leader Brittany Lang shared the not-very-crowded clubhouse lead at one-over 143. Clippers sign free agent Cook The Clippers signed their third free agent in the last two days, reaching a two-year agreement with former Lakers forward Brian Cook .

That annual chartered airplane from the John Deere Classic to the British Open carried quite the motley assortment from Illinois to the west coast of Scotland on Sunday night. It carried one 29-year-old with zero links experience and a passport he hadn't even brought to Illinois, and it carried a 49-year-old who finds experience "way overrated" and salved his screaming back unapologetically with beers.

Sonya Rinker was looking for a guy: someone who was kind, respectful and had a special place in his heart -- for tractors. She wanted a man who could share the thrill of a good tractor-pull show, who could see beauty in a shiny row of green-and-yellow John Deeres. She didn't know that somewhere along these rolling Pennsylvania hills, there was such a man, a shy guy named Tom with two vintage Deere tractors. He had been looking for a gal, someone who'd put up with his milking cows at 3 a.m. and his six-day work weeks.

Steve Stricker vaulted into second place at the John Deere Classic, tying a course record and matching the lowest score of his career with a 10-under-par 61 Saturday that left him three strokes behind Darron Stiles through two rounds at Silvis, Ill. Stiles (65), the first-round co-leader with Lee Janzen, remained on top at 13-under 129. Stricker, however, stole the show on a sunny day at TPC Deere Run.
