Oklahoma authorities plan to extradite an Arkansas man charged two years ago with vandalizing the golf course at Southern Hills Country Club, the site of this week's U.S. Open. The Carroll County, Ark., sheriff's department arrested Richard William Jones on Saturday and was holding him in jail, a dispatcher said Tuesday. Jones was charged in September 1999 for felony malicious injury to property after he had left Oklahoma.

Golfer Tommy Bolt, known as well for his legendary temper tantrums as for winning the 1958 U.S. Open, died Saturday in Batesville, Ark., the PGA Tour announced. He was 92.

"His golf prowess was only matched by his formidable and colorful personality."

TULSA, Okla. -- It's so hot, there is steam rising above the Arkansas River. It's right at 100 degrees, and isn't that an oven setting? Asking Tiger Woods if the heat bothers him is pointless. He's simply not inclined to allow negative thoughts into his head, or to mention them publicly and thus prove to his peers that he is not totally focused.

The 101st U.S Open, Tiger Woods versus all comers, tees off this morning at Southern Hills with a fairly simple story line. It is Tiger chasing history and 155 guys chasing Tiger. Woods is favored to win his fifth straight major championship, while the best of the rest attempt to make moral-victory statements such as the kind the plucky Philadelphia 76ers are making. With any other golfer except Woods, the odds would overwhelmingly favor the field against the defending U.S. Open champion.
