Tiger Woods prepped for a Bethpage Black that would be firm and fast. But rains have rendered the course soft and slow. "This is a different course than what we prepared for," he said. "I hit a four-iron on No. 7 that was head high that only [released] 10 feet on the green. I don't think I've ever seen that in a U.S. Open before." Worth noting for superintendents who want to Tiger-proof their course: Just add water.

Matt Kenseth said Thursday the massive penalties that NASCAR levied against the driver and his Joe Gibbs Racing team were "grossly unfair" and "borderline shameful. " NASCAR on Wednesday stripped Kenseth of 50 championship points and suspended his crew chief Jason Ratcliff for several races, among other penalties, because last weekend Kenseth's No. 20 Toyota had an engine part that was too light. The faulty part -- a rod that connects a piston to the crankshaft and normally weighs just over one pound -- was detected in an inspection after Kenseth won Sunday's race at Kansas Speedway.

It gets dark early here next to the Pacific Ocean, and the Northern Trust Open is being held two weeks earlier than in the past. With that early date comes about 30 minutes less daylight. To compensate, the field was kept to 132 players instead of 144, but one threesome that included Murrieta's Rickie Fowler still was left stranded in the dark. Fowler, who was even par with a hole to go, PGA Tour rookie Alex Prugh of Spokane, Wash., and Brett Lederer of Lakewood will have to finish their final first-round hole at 8 a.m. Friday.

Onto a canvas of old fools he was slapped, in brush strokes of lime and blond and bold. Into a clubhouse of ancient ideas he swept, a jock and a kid and a hoot. Forget Ricky Barnes' exhaled drives and hold-your-breath putts. The best thing about him is his timing. With the promise of protesters rumbling in the distance, a club desperately in need of a distraction discovered one Friday when its annual "sewing circle" was interrupted by a guy waving a needle and stealing the yarn.

Professional golf's landscape is littered with phenom flameouts, amateur world-beaters who could not make it on the PGA Tour. For every Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson, there are dozens of former college stars who faded into the anonymity of club professional or been relegated to far-flung tours with small purses. Ricky Barnes has no intention of fading into anything. "It's been a lot slower getting to where I want to go," says the 2002 U.S. Amateur Champion and two-time All American at Arizona.

As Mike Weir answered questions under a bright blue sky Saturday morning, a horn sounded in the distance. It was 10:01 a.m., and already the threat of a monster storm loomed in the distance. That turned out to be a false alarm. The heaviest showers held off until a few minutes before 7 p.m., when third-round play in the U.S. Open was halted and eventually suspended for the night. It will resume at 7:30 a.m. EDT today.

Could there have been a more enticing preview for what will come today? Did NBC have a hand in this? Moments before darkness closed the curtains Sunday at the 109th U.S. Open, Tiger Woods crept onto the first page of the leaderboard. Meanwhile, Ricky Barnes, seemingly in position to win his first anything since 2002, took on the gait of a man who couldn't swallow. Was a golf ball lodged in his throat? Barnes bogeyed the first hole of his final round and snap-hooked his drive on the second.
