Henry Liaw was on a fourth golf course for a fourth consecutive day Thursday and, no, he came nowhere close to shooting a 58, as he did Tuesday while playing in a junior tournament at Alhambra Municipal Golf Course. The 12-year-old from Rowland Heights, who was six under par with a 66 at Altadena Golf Club on Monday, shot a 69 Wednesday at Spring Valley Lake Country Club in Victorville, which at 6,184 yards is a par 72 and much more difficult than Alhambra, a par-70, 5,214-yard layout.

One hot afternoon last month in Sylmar, Brian "Biff" McGahan jumped into his backyard pool to help his screaming 11-year-old niece, who had been shocked by a faulty underwater light fixture. The girl got out of the water safely, but McGahan was electrocuted and sank to the bottom of the pool. Four people, including his new wife, managed to pull him out, but it was too late. Any premature death is a tragedy, but McGahan's, at 31, seems to have hit hundreds of people especially hard.

UC Irvine was in a familiar position Friday night at the end of the first quarter in the opening round of the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation men's water polo tournament at the Los Alamitos Reserve Center. The top-ranked Anteaters were tied, 1-1, with Stanford. "Sometimes it takes a goal from the other team, or maybe we are down a goal at the end of the first quarter to make us realize that we have to get going and play harder," Irvine goalkeeper Dan Hipp said.

Al Scates, longtime coach of the UCLA men's volleyball team, learned that you can never take a 6-foot-6, 250-pound man lightly. The day before the Bruins' match with Pepperdine in the finals of the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation tournament championship at Pauley Pavilion, Scates said that he wanted to wear the Waves' powerfully built outside hitter George Roumain down.

The match was like a shell game for Long Beach State. Were the Bruin setters going to get the ball to middle blockers Adam Naeve or Tom Stillwell or maybe put it up for swing hitter Ben Moselle? More often than not, the 49ers guessed wrong and UCLA overpowered Long Beach State, 15-12, 15-9, 15-10, Thursday in a semifinal match of the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation men's volleyball tournament at Pauley Pavilion.

California didn't just stop UC Irvine's two-meter attack Saturday night, it suffocated it. The underdog Bears used an extended defense on the perimeter and a tough double team in the hole that led to a 9-7 overtime victory over the top-ranked Anteaters in the semifinals of the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation men's water polo tournament at the Los Alamitos Armed Forces Reserve Center. Fourth-ranked California (16-8) plays UCLA in today's 6:30 p.m.

Sometimes genius is unveiled accidentally. For the record, no one told Matt Unger, Cal State Northridge's senior setter, to cross everyone up by looking for the normally overlooked Craig Hewitt. "He set (Hewitt) early, which is unusual," Northridge Coach John Price said. "But since it was working, I came up with a brilliant coaching strategy. I said, 'Hey, whatever works, let's keep doing it.'

Attention, please: Young adults at work here. Yes, there's a greening process going on right now in golf and it doesn't have anything to do with watering the putting surfaces. Now that 25-year-old Justin Leonard has won the British Open, it seems pretty clear that if the players winning majors get any younger, they're going to need learner permits to drive their golf carts. It's a youth movement unlike anything golf has ever seen before on a major level.
