The rookie was back home, and her family and old friends were all around. Laurie Brower--the best girl ever to play on the Villa Park High School golf team--had her brother, Martin, as her caddie. Her father, Gary, was in the gallery. And here and there, at the pro-am Wednesday and on the Los Coyotes Country Club course Thursday, Brower was greeted and cheered by women who had been her mother's friends.

Call it fate. Jill Briles-Hinton arrived in town for the Los Angeles Women's Championship at roughly the same time that her favorite talk-show host, Rosie O'Donnell, arrived for two weeks' of tapings at Universal Studios Hollywood. A 10-year veteran of the LPGA tour, Briles-Hinton spent several days angling for tickets. She even called O'Donnell's production office in New York and offered to give the television personality an on-air golf lesson. The producers told her: "Send us a tape."

Entering the Valley of the Stars Championship today, about the only thing Helen Alfredsson and Emilee Klein have in common are their short commutes to Oakmont Country Club. Alfredsson, a native of Sweden who lives in La Canada Flintridge, is off to another torrid start on the LPGA tour, having posted three top-eight finishes.

The way Jim Givens' heart was racing as he teed up on the first hole at Oakmont Country Club on Wednesday it might have killed him not too long ago. Givens, a Glendale resident, had a cholesterol count of nearly 300 about a year ago and seemed destined for a heart attack. You wouldn't know it by looking at the slender, 160-pound Givens, but at this time last year, his doctor feared for his life. "He told me it would be malpractice for him not to treat it," Givens said.

As expected, Emilee Klein had one of the largest galleries of the day--about 50 to 100 people depending on the hole. Right there every step of the way was 11-year-old Lauren Huhnerkoch of Burnsville, Minn. Huhnerkoch, a shy blond who preferred that her father did all of the talking for her, claims to be Klein's No. 1 fan and has a T-shirt reading "Emilee Klein Fan Club" (which is autographed by Klein) to prove it.
