There are many ways to check the degree of difficulty of a golf course. You can count the sand traps, check the wind flow, calibrate the topography, chart the doglegs. In a U.S. Open, all you have to do is listen to the golfers. When, to a man, they term a course fair, you read it easy. Under their breath, you can be sure they're thinking, "I can birdie this sucker. Let me at it! Where's the first tee?" If they say, "Who in the world designed this layout--the Marquis de Sade?"

"She wasn't happy with her role," Sherman said. "She wanted to contribute more, but her production was such that we had to get the people in who were productive. She had to do what was right for herself." Reached at home Wednesday, Hazlett had no comment. Northridge (14-6), 10th-ranked in preseason polls, has climbed to No.
