There would be no tournament records for Tiger Woods on Saturday. One day after his scorching 10-under-par 62, Woods had to settle for par 72 in the face of gusty winds at Sherwood Country Club in Thousand Oaks. But that still was good enough for the third-round lead of the Northwestern Mutual World Challenge, which benefits Woods' charities. Woods, who already has won the event a record five times, was 11 under par (205) and held a two-shot lead over Zach Johnson, who also shot 72. Bubba Watson shot a three-under 69 to climb into contention at seven under, while Matt Kuchar struggled to a four-over 76 and was fourth at four under.

In his salad days, Roscoe Tanner could wilt any green foe with his blistering serve. The string-scorching projectiles left the knees of opponents on the professional tennis tour knocking. One Roscoe rocket reportedly was clocked at 164 m.p.h. A decade later, Tanner still is recognized for his service ace. Make that ace service. A Westlake Village resident, Tanner is the head pro at the exclusive Sherwood Country Club in Lake Sherwood.

Tiger Woods and the other 17 players in Woods' charity tournament had to wait an extra hour to tee off Friday because of morning frost at Sherwood Country Club. Woods said he also "didn't warm up well" when he was practicing on the driving range. "I was not hitting it very good. " But that all changed on the course, where Woods got hot in a hurry and showed why he's the world's top-ranked player and a five-time winner of his event. Woods fired a 10-under-par 62, tying his tournament record, to surge into the second-round lead of the Northwestern Mutual World Challenge.

What is the Shark Shootout? For thousands of sick children it is another ray of hope. For thousands of local golf fans it is a fantasy tournament. And for the pro golfers, it is perhaps the humor highlight of the year as the pressure of the 45-week season has ended. Example: Last Saturday at Sherwood Country Club in Thousand Oaks, Arnold Palmer, a straw hat bent at the edges and tugged down over his ears, squatted behind a 10-foot putt and tried to read the line to the cup.

The sour look your mother told you to get rid of as she sent you upstairs to bed found a home on the faces of Johan Kriek and Jimmy Connors Saturday night in the semifinals of the Digital PC Champions tournament. Each player battled himself as much as his opponent, with Connors prevailing, 7-6 (7-4), 7-5, before a sellout crowd of 2,600 at the Sherwood Country Club. Kriek struggled early, then regained control of his serves and forehand as the match wore on.

Ian Poulter is still looking for his first victory on the PGA Tour, but in the meantime he'll gladly settle for winning the Chevron World Challenge and its $1.35-million prize. First, though, he'll have to master the 18th hole at Sherwood Country Club in Thousand Oaks, where the Englishman gave away sole possession of the tournament's first-round lead Thursday. Poulter double-bogeyed the hole after a wayward tee shot into the right-side trees, forcing him to settle for a four-under-par 68 and a share of the lead with Zach Johnson.

Rail-thin Peter Fleming used a withering service game for a 3-6, 7-5, 6-1 victory over Tom Gullikson in the opening match of the Digital PC Champions tennis tournament at the Sherwood Country Club on Wednesday night. Fleming, who moves on to play tour co-founder Jimmy Connors tonight at 7, faced a perilous situation midway through the second set when Gullikson broke Fleming's serve to go up three games to two, then held his serve for a 4-2 advantage.

  Facing an uphill, 25-foot putt for birdie on the 14th hole at Sherwood Country Club, Zach Johnson struck the ball hard, "too hard," he said. No matter. The ball went into the cup instead of sailing by, helping Johnson to a five-under-par 67 and the first-round lead Thursday in the Northwestern Mutual World Challenge. Matt Kuchar finished one shot behind Johnson, and Hunter Mahan and Bubba Watson were three shots behind with two-under 70s in the tournament that benefits Tiger Woods' charities.

Tiger Woods seldom says much on Twitter despite having 3.7 million followers and being nudged by his girlfriend, Olympic skier Lindsey Vonn, to tweet more often. "As far as her convincing me to tweet more, yes, she certainly has hinted that," Woods said Wednesday at Sherwood Country Club, site of his charity golf tournament that starts Thursday.

If Tiger Woods is finally going to win another golf tournament, it might as well be his own. Showing the form that the world came to expect from Woods before his sensational downfall a year ago, Woods fired a seven-under-par 65 to take a one-shot lead Thursday in the opening round of the Chevron World Challenge in Thousand Oaks. The 18-player event at the Sherwood Country Club course benefits the Tiger Woods Foundation, and its namesake is a four-time winner. But Woods missed the event in 2008 due to knee surgery and again last year due to the Thanksgiving night car accident that ignited his sex scandal.

Graeme McDowell shot a four-under 68 to win golf's World Challenge for the second time in three years Sunday. The Northern Ireland native finished 17 under par for the tournament at Sherwood Country Club in Thousand Oaks, three shots ahead of second-place Keegan Bradley, to earn the event's $1-million first prize. Bo Van Pelt was third at 10 under par, seven shots back of McDowell. And tournament host Tiger Woods, Jim Furyk and Rickie Fowler tied for fourth at nine under. A key moment for McDowell came on the par-three 17th when he made an excellent downhill chip shot from just off the green, the ball stopping at the lip of the cup. That saved McDowell's par and kept his lead over Bradley at two strokes.

Tiger Woods, meanwhile, struggled on the front nine at Sherwood Country Club. McDowell, who led after 36 holes, was 11 under par and two shots ahead of Keegan Bradley through seven holes Saturday as an early morning drizzle kept the golf course soggy. Bradley was three under for the day. Jim Furyk was four shots back at seven under for the tournament, followed by Bo Van Pelt at six under.
