George Archer didn't think much of his chances when he teed off Sunday in the final round of the $550,000 Kaanapali Classic. Archer trailed leader Dave Stockton by four shots, 10 other golfers were either ahead or tied with him, and the absence of the usual blustery trade winds guaranteed low scores. But as Archer would say later, "When you shoot a 63, you have a chance to do something."

It was a nightmare in Hawaii that Mark Monazzami can never forget . . . no matter how hard he tries. He emerged from the hospital Thursday and planned to join the search for his bride's body in the beautiful waters off Maui. It was there, he said, that she bled to death after the shark took off her arm. There are no eyewitnesses to the attack and no body.

Despite another ho-hum 66 that gave him a share of the lead Friday in the National Car Rental Classic at Lake Buena Vista, Fla., Tiger Woods considered the optimal scoring conditions and said anything could happen over the weekend. The trick is to convince everyone else of that. Woods continued to show peak form after a three-week layoff with a variety of shots that carried him into a tie for the lead after two rounds with Jim Carter and Bob Tway.

What usually is an easy event for PGA Tour players turned into a day of frustration on slick, sun-baked greens at the $2-million National Car Rental Classic, leaving Davis Love III and five others in the lead after the second round at Lake Buena Vista, Fla. Their seven-under 137 tied the record for the highest 36-hole lead in the Disney Classic, set by John Mahaffey in 1973. That didn't surprise anyone.

Lee Trevino says he knows what to expect in his debut on the Senior PGA Tour in the Kaanapali tournament, starting here today. "I'm going to be nervous. I'm going to be pressured. I'm going to be trying too hard," Trevino said. His arrival on the scene--Trevino turned 50 last week--is one of the most heralded since the senior tour started 10 years ago. And Trevino has been preparing for it for nearly three years.
