Why is it you can't praise a winner? Thomas Bonk and Jim Murray wrote about Nanci Bowen winning the Dinah Shore golf tournament in a very negative manner. She has worked long and hard on her golf game, and she hung in there playing steady golf on March 26 when the favorites began to falter. Why not give her credit? My Nanci is a nice, unassuming, attractive, well-liked young lady. However, as usual, the media want to belittle the efforts of a winner and almost mock her in an article.

Stop me if you've heard this: There's this internationally famed, brilliant golfer who has won 47 women's tournaments, not counting those abroad, and she has piled up $4,083,921 in prize money over the years. There's this other golfer no one ever heard of who has never won a tour tournament and has earned $140,266 in her career. Guess who won the Nabisco Dinah Shore, first "major" of the women's tour Sunday? Need you ask? It wasn't Nancy Lopez, the party of the first part.

As expected, Nanci won the Nabisco Dinah Shore. Not Nancy Lopez, Nanci Bowen. Meanwhile, the water around the 18th green at Mission Hills flows backward. The first major women's golf title of the year wound up somewhere that nobody expected Sunday when it was all but placed as a gift in Bowen's golf bag. And just who is this Nanci Bowen?

Ernie Els had been worried about defending his Buick Classic title the week after winning his second U.S. Open. He didn't show it Thursday. Els continued his mastery of the Westchester Country Club in Harrison, N.Y., with a seven-under-par 64 that gave him a two-stroke lead over Brad Faxon in the opening round. "It's right there, it's still in my mind," he said of his victory last weekend at Congressional Country Club. "I still get the nice feel from the U.S. Open. . . .
