Sean O'Hair got a putting tip from Tiger Woods and put it to good use Thursday in the Tour Championship, opening with a four-under-par 66 to take a one-shot lead in the final FedEx Cup playoff event. Woods did all right himself. He recovered from a shaky start with three birdies during a four-hole stretch on the back nine at East Lake for a 67, leaving him one shot back along with Padraig Harrington and British Open champion Stewart Cink. O'Hair played six times last week at home with his buddies.

With Tiger Woods near the bottom of the field and Phil Mickelson unable to make a move, Sean O' Hair and Ryan Palmer charged into a tie for the lead in Saturday's third round of the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational at Akron, Ohio. O'Hair fired a six-under-par 64 and Palmer a sparkling 63, the only two bogey-free scores of the day, as the pair edged one shot clear of a tightly bunched leaderboard at Firestone Country Club. O'Hair and Palmer were at nine-under 201, with Matt Kuchar alone in third after carding a 66 on a soft layout vulnerable to low scoring.

Tiger Woods had the lead and was ready to turn the Tour Championship into a runaway Friday. First came a five-wood up the hill on the par-five 15th that narrowly cleared the bunker, hopped onto the green and rolled toward the flag until it stopped just over four feet away. On the next hole, Woods started walking before his shot began its descent to inside four feet. There were so many fans around the 16th green that it was hard to read the video board showing Woods' PGA Tour ranking on putts between four and five feet.

Phil Mickelson walks with big, long steps, meaning the eager golf fans, the ones waving scorecards and visors to be autographed, have to jog along to keep up. It's worthwhile exercise. Mickelson was in a signing mood Wednesday at Torrey Pines. For this Tiger Woods-less moment anyway, Mickelson is golf's biggest attraction. Today he begins his 19th season on the PGA Tour at the Farmers Insurance Open on the course he considers home. He spoke of personal issues, of Tiger issues, of club issues, of the state of his golf, his physique, his outlook on life, as easily as if every media member was a good buddy.

Sean O'Hair hasn't made many birdies lately. He saw more than his share Saturday in another day of low scoring at the Deutsche Bank Championship, and some of them were even his own. O'Hair was eight under par in an eight-hole stretch in the middle of his round, sending him to a seven-under 64 and a share of the lead with Jim Furyk after 36 holes on the TPC Boston. O'Hair and Furyk were at 12-under 130, two shots clear of Retief Goosen and Marc Leishman, who had a tournament-low 62. Nearly half the field of 99 players shot in the 60s. O'Hair and Furyk, who made six birdies in his round of 67, played in the same group with Goosen, who had a 67. The threesome combined to make 17 birdies and one eagle.

Steve Stricker squeezed everything he could out of his final shot Sunday in the Deutsche Bank Championship, setting up an eagle that gave him a share of the lead with Retief Goosen and Sean O'Hair. Stricker, who can overtake Tiger Woods atop the FedEx Cup standings with a victory, hit his hybrid to five feet on the par-five 18th for a six-under-par 65. He was among a dozen players separated by three shots going into today's Labor Day finish at TPC Boston in Norton, Mass. "I needed a day like this today to get back into it," Stricker said.

Y.E. Yang is best known for beating Tiger Woods in the final round to win this year's PGA Championship, so it seemed only fitting that the South Korean again would make ripples at Woods' tournament. Yang overcame flu symptoms and fired a seven-under-par 65 on Friday to take the second-round lead in the Chevron World Challenge, which benefits Woods' charity. That gave Yang a two-day total of nine-under 135 at the par-72 Sherwood Country Club in Thousand Oaks. Two shots behind Yang were three golfers: two-time British Open champion Padraig Harrington, who won this tournament in 2002; Ian Poulter, who shared the first-round lead; and Kenny Perry, who matched Yang's 65 as Perry concludes what has been, in his words, "a magical year" on the golf course.

What does it mean when half your Ryder Cup team has never played in it before? The U.S. is going to find out in a couple of weeks when it fields a team of six rookies against a European team that won the last two Ryder Cup matches by the most lopsided scores in history. U.S. captain Paul Azinger filled out the last four members of his squad Tuesday, three of them Ryder Cup rookies and two of them at least mild surprises. Steve Stricker, Hunter Mahan, J.B. Holmes and Chad Campbell were captain's picks for Azinger, who said no to Woody Austin and Rocco Mediate.

Golf fans had waited nearly 9 1/2 months for Tiger Woods to begin the final round of a golf tournament in contention. When that moment finally arrived on Sunday at Bay Hill, he delivered in characteristic fashion. Woods sank a 16-foot birdie putt on the final hole of regulation to edge Sean O'Hair, win the Arnold Palmer Invitational for the sixth time and match the largest final-round comeback of his career.

Tiger Woods made two nice chip-ins for birdie. Padraig Harrington showed glimpses of the game that enabled him to win the last two majors. And Vaughn Taylor and Webb Simpson each had a hole in one. But the stars of Friday's second round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational were Sean O'Hair and the course at Bay Hill.

Sean O'Hair has conquered strong winds, unforgiving greens and thick rough through the first three rounds of the Arnold Palmer Invitational. But, today, he'll face perhaps his most difficult test yet: 18 holes of golf alongside defending champion Tiger Woods. On a gusty Saturday when only eight players managed to shoot par or better, O'Hair posted a one-over-par 71 to retain a five-shot lead over Woods.
