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.

Heavy rains washed away Lee Trevino's chance of improving his position and made Don Bies the winner of the storm-shortened, two-round Kaanapali tournament Saturday. "It probably doesn't matter," Trevino said after a series of squalls flooded Hawaii's Royal Kaanapali course and forced cancellation of the final round of play. "I was six shots back. The way Don was playing, that was too much to make up."

A 58-year-old Marina del Rey man was recovering Wednesday after he was bitten by a shark at a beach in Maui. Officials said the shark was believed to be about 10 feet long and bit the man on his right thigh while he was in the water Tuesday morning at Kaanapali Beach, which is in the city of Lahaina on the island's west shore. The victim told authorities the shark's head was "the size of a basketball," Maui County officials said in a statement. Officials shut down the popular beach for a mile in both directions.

The big question on the PGA Tour has gone from when will Tiger Woods win to when will he lose. Woods won for the sixth time in nine tournaments Sunday, finishing with a 17-under-par 271 to defeat Ernie Els by one stroke and win the National Car Rental Classic at Lake Buena Vista, Fla. The troubling trend for everyone else is that Woods keeps winning, and no one is quite sure when--or if--he is going to stop. Not even Woods.

Hale Irwin tied a 12-year-old Senior PGA Tour record with his ninth tournament victory of the year Sunday, winning the Kaanapali Classic by three shots. Irwin shot a one-under-par 70 in the final round for a 54-hole total of 13-under 200. The first prize of $127,500 gave him $2,131,364, the most money any player has earned on any tour in one year. Bruce Summerhays, who led after the first and second rounds, couldn't recover from a triple-bogey on No. 6.

Doug Dalziel shot a 7-under-par 65 Friday to lead a first-round charge of non-winners in the $250,000 Syracuse Senior golf tournament. Dalziel, whose best previous finish was seventh in last year's Kaanapali event in Hawaii, tied the tournament record with his opening round on the Lafayette Country Club. Lou Graham and Jim Hatfield, who like Dalziel have never won a PGA Seniors Tour event, were in second place at 66. George Lanning, also seeking his first senior victory, shot a 67.
