ROCHESTER, N.Y. - Put Phil Mickelson and Tiger Woods in the same room and they'd compete for oxygen. That's why Saturday looked so strange for the two uber-competitors, who played separately but stumbled similarly. Mickelson blew up with an eight-over 78, triple-bogeying the par-four seventh and playing the final five holes in five over with a double bogey. After trying to drive the 323-yard par-four 14th, Mickelson took a nice tour of the fringe, needing three back-and-forth chips to find the green before two-putting.

Reporting from San Martin, Calif. — The way the past two years have gone, Tiger Woods now appears to be taking the resurrection of his golf career one step at a time. Literally. "First of all," he says, "I'm able to walk the golf course. " And that, alone, offers some hope for his chances at the Frys.com Open, which begins Thursday at CordeValle in Northern California. Woods used to skip right past late-season tournaments such as this one, but he has played all of 61/2 rounds since the Masters last April.

Tiger Woods had his lowest opening round in three years Friday in the Deutsche Bank Championship. It still wasn't enough to be low man in Sean Foley's coaching stable. Seung-yul Noh, a rising star from South Korea in his first season on the PGA Tour, ran off four straight birdies early in his round and closed with back-to-back birdies on the TPC Boston in Norton, Mass., for a nine-under 62. That gave him a one-shot lead over Chris Kirk, whose 23 putts included an eagle on the new 18th hole.

In theatrical parlance, it's called the Greek chorus. And in the tale of two extremes that has defined Tiger Woods' season, the voices from the periphery at times have been nearly as entertaining as the drama they accompany. Item: Woods is back to his winning ways - three times, in fact, more than anyone else on the PGA Tour. He recently passed Jack Nicklaus for No. 2 on the all-time victories list. (Voices: He's back!) Then again, Woods has an equal number of starts in which he didn't finish 72 holes - two missed cuts and an injury flare-up.

Tiger Woods limped off a golf course Thursday, having recorded a nine-hole score of six-over 42 at the Players Championship at TPC Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla., and what followed him were questions. The biggest one: Is he ever going to win big golf tournaments again? And, in the short term: Could he possibly be ready for the U.S. Open in five weeks? Woods, 35, surrendered to pain in his knee and Achilles' tendon and for the second straight year was unable to finish the tournament, which is considered just a notch below the four majors of golf.

Sean Foley and Hamish McColl, known collectively as the Right Size, can turn almost anything into comedy. Two balloonists crashing through a villager's roof in the far frozen north of England. Two middle-aged golfers who disappear behind a sofa. Two vaudevillians who can't leave the stage. Two complete strangers trapped in a bathroom together for 25 years.

Comedian Joan Rivers is taking her play, "Joan Rivers: A Work in Progress by a Life in Progress," across the Atlantic. After a stop at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival Aug. 7-25, "Work in Progress" is scheduled to play Aug. 29-Sept. 18 and Dec. 2-Jan. 29, 2009, at London's Leicester Square Theatre. The new production, to be directed by Sean Foley, will include some changes to Rivers' slice-and-dice, riff-and-rant content seen earlier this year at the Geffen Playhouse. "That's why it's called a 'work in progress,' " said Judy Katz, Rivers' publicist.
