Len Mattiace can attest that the first victory on the PGA Tour is the most difficult. He had been close before but had come up short. That's why the feeling he had, walking up the 18th fairway at Riviera Country Club last year during the final round of the Nissan Open, was so strange. "I was in a comfortable place," Mattiace said. This was a guy who had crashed hard in a similar position four years earlier.

Len Mattiace had played very well at the St. Jude Classic, yet he started the final round so far back he didn't bother checking a leaderboard Sunday. Mattiace won for the second time this year as he rallied from a seven-stroke deficit by shooting a seven-under 64 to win the tournament by a stroke. He pulled off the largest come-from-behind victory since Davis Love III rallied from seven behind in 2001 to win at Pebble Beach. "I didn't look at the leaderboard.

Some things just are what they are and you cannot change them. There is no alteration policy. For instance, there are 12 Days of Christmas, Three Stooges, 101 Dalmatians and 18 holes in golf. You can't just stop after 17 holes and say, well, that's enough, and then take it to the house. You have to play all 18 before it's over, which was one too many for the third week in a row.

Len Mattiace shot a seven-under-par 65 Saturday at the Disney Golf Classic at Lake Buena Vista, Fla., giving him a two-stroke lead over David Duval and putting him in the final group for the first time in his two years on the PGA Tour. "It's kind of weird," said Mattiace, stepping in from a steady rain that fell throughout the third round. "I had to find some type of medium where if you don't try at all, you're not going to play well. If you try too hard, you're going to fall on your face.

Tiger Woods returned after a five-week break from the PGA Tour and found that some things never change. In the land of Disney, players have to shoot low scores to be in the lead. He wasn't among them. "For my first tournament back in a while, to be able to shoot a halfway decent score is not bad," Woods said Thursday after his 69 in the National Car Rental Classic at Lake Buena Vista, Fla. Five players had a share of the lead at seven-under-par 65, most of them with something at stake.
