Nestled between the golf geezers ranked No. 59 in the world, Dudley Hart, and No. 61, Woody Austin, lies a genuine adolescent sensation -- and one who'll make his PGA Tour debut at Riviera Country Club next month. Ryo Ishikawa, a human being even younger than David Archuleta, will cross the Pacific to play Feb. 19-22 in the Northern Trust Open at 17 years 5 months and 2 days old, one month before he plays in Orlando, Fla.

The Americans kept the lead over the International team in the Presidents Cup, and they still don't have a point from Tiger Woods . Woods is 0-2 for the first time in this event, and the first time in any team competition since he and Phil Mickelson lost their opening two matches at the 2004 Ryder Cup, but the U.S. leads, 7-5. Aaron Baddeley earned a small measure of redemption by making a strong par on the 18th hole as he...

Hit: Ryo Ishikawa, the 17-year-old Japanese phenomenon playing in the last group of the day, chipped from 37 yards in the darkness on the ninth hole, spun it back and drained the ensuing five-footer for a scrambling par and a 71. He didn't make the cut, but his style and excellent manner make him irresistible to watch. Miss: When a 27-foot eagle putt went barreling in on No. 1, Phil Mickelson stood at 10 under par and appeared primed for a possible runaway. When his drive on No. 2 strayed so far left it bounced off the driving range fence, well, not so much.

Rory McIlroy first tried a cold water bottle, then ice packs in a towel. By the time he left Atlanta Athletic Club, his right hand was taped like an NFL free safety. But he made it to the finish. Hitting several shots nearly one-handed after hurting his wrist on a swing against a tree root, McIlroy cobbled together an even-par 70 Thursday to stay in the PGA Championship mix for at least a day. "It was a good effort," said McIlroy, seven shots off Steve Stricker's pace but only four out of third.

Birdie: Ryo Ishikawa: The Japanese teenager with the huge media following is two shots back after shooting 70-71 at Pebble Beach. "I've played with him in Japan and it's even worse over there," Rory McIlroy, who played with Ishikawa the first two days, says of the reporters who track Ishikawa. ("He handles it very, very well. That's probably the most impressive thing about him — apart from how he plays golf." Bogey: Aaron Baddeley: He hasn't been the same player since leading the 2008 Open at Oakmont after Saturday (and making triple bogey to start Sunday's round)

A fresh breeze rustled the pink dogwoods and Chinese fir trees here Tuesday, and that's not to be confused with the 25-mph wind gusts that made the aptly named Augusta National feel more like Royal Birkdale or St. Andrews. "This looks more like a British Open press conference than it does a Masters press conference," said Tiger Woods, surveying the cardigans and windbreakers in the crowd. The more meaningful breeze wasn't supplied by Mother Nature.

Over here at the playhouse usually known as Riviera Country Club, there hasn't been this much hubbub about a high school student since 1992, when some 16-year-old from Western High in Anaheim turned up and missed the cut yet wowed the crowd. "These guys are just too good," Tiger Woods actually said that Friday. "I just don't think I'm ready for this."

Aside from the swirling news of Tiger Woods' return and a first-day leaderboard stacked with familiar names, it was a day for young guns. A 22-year-old playing on a special exemption and a 17-year-old from Japan drew plenty of attention at the opening round of the Northern Trust Open on Thursday at the Riviera Country Club. Vincent Johnson, given a shot at the PGA Tour event thanks to the inaugural Charlie Sifford exemption, shot a one-under-par 70 in his opening round.

BIRDIE In a genuine golf nightmare, Retief Goosen stood in a bunker beside the No. 17 green with the ball pressed almost up against the wall. Viewers cringed; Goosen contorted. With his right foot in the sand and his left knee folded on the ground above, he swung, and in some genuine golf ingenuity, the ball flew out, trickled over and landed three feet from the cup to arrange birdie.

Scott Stallings shot a final-round 68 on Sunday to finally grab the top spot on the leaderboard and win the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines Golf Course. On a day in which the leaderboard was packed at the top, with as many as six players tied for the lead late in the day, Stallings' birdie at the famous par-five 18th hole held up for his third PGA Tour victory. It gave him a four-round score of nine-under-par 209, one stroke ahead of K.J. Choi, Graham DeLaet, Jason Day, Pat Perez and Marc Leishman, who finished in a five-way tie for second.
