The weekend when Juli Inkster won the Safeway LPGA Golf Championship in Portland, Ore.--a late September tournament of no special importance except that by winning, Inkster qualified for the LPGA Hall of Fame--pretty much nobody but her husband Brian and her two daughters, Hayley and Cori, her parents and a little gathering of friends and family paid attention. Or, as Inkster says, "The whole world checked out."

Two weeks ago it was Japan. Last week it was Japan. And beginning today, the LPGA is here at the Desert Inn on the Strip for the PageNet Championship, where the big issues are jet lag and whether Karrie Webb can finish off Juli Inkster. Of course, another issue is the LPGA's scheduling, which sends its players to tournaments in Japan for a couple of weeks before staging on another continent its season-ending, $1-million tournament featuring the year's top 30 money winners. The fallout?

Defending champion Juli Inkster continued her domination of the Atlantic City golf tournament Friday with a four-under-par 67 to take a one-stroke lead over second-year pro Patty Jordan at Galloway Township, N.J. Inkster led or shared the lead after every round of last year's inaugural tournament, and she showed no willingness to have that change this year.

JoAnne Carner, powering the ball through gusting winds that bothered most of her competitors, fired a six-under-par 66 Friday to build a three-stroke lead after the second round of the $200,000 Elizabeth Arden golf tournament at Turnberry Isle Country Club. Carner began the round two strokes behind the leaders, but quickly took control with a five-under 31 on the front nine of the 6,092-yard course.

Tiger Woods needed only 90 minutes Friday to show that his game is hitting on all cylinders. It could take a marathon weekend, however, to convert that into his first PGA Tour victory since July. Woods completed his first round in the rain-delayed Bay Hill Invitational at Orlando, Fla., with four birdies on the last seven holes, giving him an eight-under-par 64 and a one-stroke lead over Robert Damron, who didn't play a shot.

England's soccer players' union called an unprecedented strike for Dec. 1 after the union head said talks over television revenue broke down Tuesday. The Professional Football Players Assn. is asking for 5%, or about $40 million annually, of a television deal. The first strike in the history of the English game loomed after the Premier League offered $30 million. The league said it would seek a court injunction to stop the strike.

If nothing else, the first season-ending women's pro golf event already is the clubhouse leader in, well, initials--the ITT LPGA Tour Championship--and in subplots involving money. For instance, can co-leader Karrie Webb see herself becoming the first Ms. Million as she stares through those darkly tinted wrap-around sunglasses as black as a $50 casino chip? Can Laura Davies stop hitting her drives off cart paths and behind trees and make up three shots? Naturally, there's a lot at stake.
