James Hahn stood and stared at his scorecard. He was looking at the numerical evidence of his glorious golf round Friday at the Humana Challenge. Hahn, a 31-year-old who has struggled and played on lesser golf tours ever since he graduated from California in 2003, counted four birdies, an eagle and a lonely bogey in his round of five-under-par 67 at La Quinta Country Club. He has a two-day total of 14-under-par 130 and is tied for the second-round lead with Roberto Castro whose aunt, Jenny Lidback, once won on the LPGA Tour.

The Deutsche Bank Championship in Norton, Mass., has restarted after a three-hour weather delay halted the third round of play. PGA Tour officials are having the golfers play off the first and 10th tees in threesomes after pulling them off the TPC Boston course at 8:46 a.m. EDT because of rain and lightning. The first group had already completed six holes of play when the decision was made to halt the round. All scores were erased and the third round restarted at 12:15 p.m. local time.

There are three co-leaders after the first round of the Humana Challenge, and none of them has won a PGA Tour event. So when the tournament ends Sunday at the PGA West Palmer course in La Quinta, it seems unlikely Jason Kokrak, Roberto Castro or James Hahn will be collecting the winner's check of $1.008 million. But for a day anyway, the threesome got to shine. Kokrak, at La Quinta Country Club; Castro, at PGA West Nicklaus; and Hahn, at PGA West Palmer, each shot nine-under-par 63s Thursday, which gave them a one-shot advantage over a quartet that included rookie Russell Henley, who won last week's Sony Open in Honolulu.

Sergio Garcia opened with five birdies in seven holes and later made an 18-foot eagle putt on the 18th hole for a seven-under 64 to take a one-shot lead over Roberto Castro and Henrik Stenson on Saturday after the second round of the Deutsche Bank Championship at Norton, Mass. Garcia was at 13-under 129. Phil Mickelson , who had shared the first-round lead, took a wild ride to a 71 as he closed with back-to-back birdies that left him five strokes back. Tiger Woods , in the featured grouping with Mickelson and Adam Scott , made a 35-foot birdie putt on the 18th hole for a 67 and was six shots back.

PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. -- Sergio Garcia was only 19 when he first challenged Tiger Woods during the final round of the 1999 PGA Championship. Woods nipped the fist-pumping Spaniard - then affectionately known as El Nino - by a shot for a second major championship. Yet, the stage was set for a classic rivalry. It never happened. Tiger would do his part, but Sergio could not keep up, especially when the two were paired together. Garcia, now 33, will get another chance to stand up to the pressure of a pairing with Woods on Saturday when the two longtime foes face off in the final group at the Players Championship.

David Toms thought his five-iron was headed for the back bunker on the par-three fourth hole, so when it kissed off the pin and dropped into the cup for an ace, he figured Saturday might be his day in the Memorial at Dublin, Ohio. On a day of low scoring and a wild scramble for the lead, Toms shot an eight-under-par 64 and wound up in a four-way tie for the top spot with Fred Couples, Jeff Sluman and Bart Bryant at 12-under 204. "I put myself in position today, and that's all I did," Toms said.

For California Pizza Kitchen Inc. Chief Executive Rick Rosenfield, the two hours he spent scrubbing pans and dishes in the steamy confines of one of his chain's restaurant kitchens was enough to bring about corporate change. Utensils at the 168-restaurant chain now are sorted before they hit the sink area, so they're easier for dishwashers to handle without getting jabbed. "It's the forks that get you," Rosenfield said.

Annika Sorenstam turned her head and studied the large leaderboard behind the green on her last hole Thursday in the LPGA Championship, seeing her name in a familiar position at the top. It didn't stay there long, but it was never far away. Natalie Gulbis rose to the occasion of playing with Sorenstam by closing with five consecutive birdies, including an 18-foot putt on the ninth hole, for a five-under-par 67 at Havre de Grace, Md.

As Jeff Greco remembers it, he was the first to take the plunge into wrestling after listening to his father's exploits on the mat. But it didn't take long for Jeff's twin brother, Mike, to join. And before long, both were learning the sport and coming to the realization that wrestling was their cup of tea. That was in 1991, during their freshman year at Laguna Hills High.
