The illustrious high school golf career of Ron Won ended Tuesday. And now it is complete. Won, a University High senior, used a hot putter to shoot an impressive six-under-par 66 on a wind-swept SCGA Members Club course in Murrieta and win the CIF-SCGA individual title. In the process he broke the tournament record of 67 shared by Tiger Woods of Western and Charley Hoffman of Poway and finally put an elusive first-place finish on an otherwise impeccable resume.

In terms of his presidential bid, Rep. Ron Paul is all in. He won’t run for Congress in 2012, he said Tuesday. Paul, 75, announced his plans through Twitter. In an interview with a newspaper in his southeast Texas district, the Facts, the 12-term Republican congressman said it was time for him to concentrate on the presidential campaign. “I felt it was better that I concentrate on one election,” Paul told the paper. “It’s about that time when I should change tactics.” Paul has watched as his libertarian-leaning brand of conservatism has caught on among Republicans and tea party activists in recent years.

University's Brian Sinay grabbed the headlines last year when he won the Southern Section individual golf championship, joining Tiger Woods and Ted Oh, who also accomplished the same feat as freshmen. However, Sinay doesn't even play in the No. 1 slot for the Trojans. That person is junior Ron Won, who has won three consecutive Pacific Coast League titles, beating Sinay for the last two titles. In the league finals at Coto de Caza this year, Won led Sinay by two strokes with two holes remaining.

"Tea party" sentiment is pulling the Republican presidential contest to the right as would-be candidates appeal for support from the GOP's conservative base. Tea party litmus tests were dominant 2012 themes as most of the presidential contenders addressed the nation's largest annual conservative conference, which ended Saturday. Competing for straw-poll votes from thousands of activists ? who gave libertarian Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) first place ? the potential candidates sought to outdo one another in expressing their disgust with a bloated government in Washington.

University High golf Coach Craig Huff says he will always remember Ron Won. Forget the on-course achievements that made Won synonymous with local high school golf for the last four years. It's not Won's game that has made an impact on Huff. "He's just one of the neatest kids on the planet," Huff said. "Anyone who's ever come in contact with him says the same thing. I'm going to remember that more than anything. Even if he was just a kid in my class, I'd remember him."

So much for fairy tales. At least ones involving Ron Won. Won, trying to punctuate a stellar junior golf career with his first AJGA victory, playing just a few miles from his Irvine home, came up short in the final round of the Junior Championship Thursday at Coto de Caza. Won bogeyed two of the first four holes on Coto's difficult 6,963-yard North course and did not recover in his final-round 75 and finished second.

Time is running out, and Ron Won knows it. That's why a victory at the AJGA Junior Championship at Coto de Caza would mean so much. Won has been on a hot streak in American Junior Golf Assn. events, but yearns for the first-place finish that has eluded him. The 18-year-old Irvine resident once again put himself in position to get it by shooting a five-under-par 67 Wednesday in the second round on Coto de Caza's 6,963-yard North Course.

Ron Swoboda had a mediocre career at best, a lifetime .242 batting average. He never equaled the promise of 1965, his rookie year, when he hit 19 home runs at age 21. He was rushed into the big leagues after only one season of minor league play and would fail to acquire a hitter's needed finishing touches. Still, he was an emotional player who had his moments of glory.

Eli Broad made his fortune building affordable homes for Southern Californians, while Ron Burkle made his by filling their pantries with groceries. On Wednesday, they joined in a bid to buy the Los Angeles Times' parent, Tribune Co. If successful, the two billionaires with no newspaper experience might pull off one of their most audacious deals yet. Broad and Burkle have spent millions cutting separate swaths across the landscape of Southern California arts, culture and philanthropy.
