Michele Lyford shot a par 74 on Torrey Pines' North Course Friday afternoon to win the girls' 15-17 division of the Optimist Junior World Golf Tournament. Then the 17-year-old player from Redlands sought out her father. To tell him of the good news? To share the moment of victory? No, that wasn't foremost on her mind. Lyford had to locate her father to remind him that they had to check out of their hotel room. Some people just have so many things to do.

Five years ago, Chris Christenson and his son Matt had a man-to-man talk. He figured it was time for a little male bonding and a good chance to pick his son's brain about his future. Chris was 58 and a year away from a retirement brought on by poor health. Matt, 9, was mature for his age. The subject was Matt's athletic future: should he scrap his budding Little League career and devote his full attention to golf?

Eldrick (Tiger) Woods isn't like most of the other participants in the 10-and-under division of this week's Junior World Golf Tournament at Presidio Hills. As a two-time defending champion and as a youngster who has not lost a tournament this season, people expect big things from this little person. At 4-feet 9-inches tall and 81 pounds, Tiger Woods has before him this week a tall order. Nobody has ever won three consecutive Junior World Golf Titles. "That's my goal this year," Tiger said.

Now, Tiger Woods knows what it's like to be backed up on the 405 during rush hour. Woods, 15, of Cypress, was on a roll--making three birdies in a row at one point--Wednesday at the Optimist Junior World golf tournament at Torrey Pines Golf Course. But slow play in front of him caused a three-group logjam that forced him to wait almost 30 minutes on the 11th tee. By the time traffic cleared, it took Woods a while to get started. He bogeyed Nos.

Now Eldrick "Tiger" Woods knows what it's to be backed up on the freeway during rush hour. Woods of Cypress was on a roll Wednesday at the Optimist Junior World Golf tournament at Torrey Pines Golf Course--three birdies in a row put him at four under for the day--and all he wanted was to keep the rhythm and get home. But the slow play in front of him caused a three-group logjam that forced him to wait for almost 30 minutes on the 11th tee.
