George Archer made only one change when he played the 17th hole at Newport Beach Country Club for a second time Saturday. Archer, who was in a playoff with Lee Trevino in the Georgia-Pacific Super Seniors event for players 60 and older, took his rain jacket off before hitting his tee shot on the hole, which had been disastrous for him 30 minutes earlier. The first time through Archer hit a four-iron off the toe of his club. His ball ended up in the water and he made a double bogey.

He makes his 6-foot-3 presence quietly felt. You'd never guess Jean S. Fugett Jr. was a lawyer, broadcaster, former newspaperman, Super Bowl veteran, Amherst scholar. Nor would he likely volunteer that he is the younger brother and successor of the late Reginald F. Lewis, one of America's boldest entrepreneurs who engineered the success of TLC Beatrice International Holdings Inc., by far the nation's biggest black-owned company. "Those things have to be forced out of him," said Lee A. Archer Jr.

Today's important golf question is whether a perpetually peppy, power-walking former golf club salesman who has never won a Senior PGA Tour event can get past one of the game's preeminent players who has a personality drier than a summer sidewalk back home in Oklahoma and who already has won 14 times in two years? "Who knows?" said Joe Inman. "You never know," said Gil Morgan.

Director Michael Oblowitz and writer-producer Larry Gross have a tough time getting a grip on "This World, Then the Fireworks," a lurid, low-down adaptation of a story by legendary hard-boiled writer Jim Thompson. As a result, "This World" lumbers and strains too often when it should snap and crackle. It's the late '20s and the lives of two small children, brother and sister, are blasted when their father, in your classic fit of jealous rage, takes a shotgun to his lover and her husband, a cop.

Richard Lee McNair's job in the prison factory was mending U.S. mailbags. Thousands of the leather pouches were routinely delivered to the shop at the federal maximum-security penitentiary here, and the middle-aged convict worked quietly each day, helping to stitch them back up. Once the bags were refurbished, they were stacked on pallets, hundreds in a pile. McNair watched for four months as forklifts scooped up the pallets and hauled them to a warehouse just outside the prison walls.

You've overcome every obstacle, met every challenge, reached every goal--all before turning 50. You're a success, a big shot. Then one day a doctor tells you something you cannot change or conquer. You are sick. You are dying. What do you do now that your life, always measured by achievements and accomplishments, must be measured instead in months or weeks?
