Vijay Singh, withstanding two eagles including a hole in one from onrushing Tiger Woods, clung to a narrow lead Saturday after three rounds of the Sprint International at Castle Rock, Colo. Singh, who won the PGA Championship last week, had four birdies and two bogeys in a steady if unspectacular round at Castle Pines Golf Club, which for the first time in three days was spared delays from lightning and rain.

The best way to make sure you're in the field for the PGA Championship? Win the thing before. But that's not the only way. Since 1995, when the number of club pros invited was reduced from 40 to 25, the field of 150 for the PGA Championship has proved to be the strongest in golf. Last year at Valhalla, a record 81 of the top 100 in the world rankings were on hand. Here is how players become eligible: 1--All former PGA champions. 2--Winners of the last five U.S. Opens (1993-1997).

David Toms withstood the best golf's heavyweights could throw at him and maintained his lead Saturday after three rounds of the Sprint International at Castle Rock, Colo. Toms, who began the day with a three-point lead over Paul Goydos but with David Duval, Ernie Els and Steve Elkington in close pursuit, finished with 39 points. Duval birdied six of his last 11 holes and had 36 points, matching the total of Stephen Ames of Canada.

With two holes to play, David Toms could have folded and given David Duval a victory at the Sprint International at Castle Rock, Colo. Instead he came up with two birdies and a victory. Toms, who double-bogeyed the 16th, led every round in posting his second career victory on the PGA Tour, but he had to hold off Duval and Stephen Ames over the final holes. Ames had the lead at the turn Sunday, but in a wild finish it shifted to Toms, then to Duval and finally back to Toms.

Vijay Singh, hot enough to win the PGA Championship, stayed hot enough Thursday to card six birdies and an eagle, giving him a share of the first-round lead in the Sprint International at Castle Rock, Colo. Four days after winning his first major tournament, Singh scored 15 points under the modified Stableford system used in this event, tying journeyman Jim Carter--who had 11 one-putt greens, including his last eight--for the lead.

Sure, records are made to be broken, but there are a few in golf that probably never will be. Even though professional golfers may be better than ever as a group, playing the finest-conditioned courses in the world and using equipment so technically advanced there probably are computer chips stuffed inside, there are several golf standards that seem certain to be left standing when titanium eventually turns to rust. * Byron Nelson's 11 consecutive tournament victories.

Fighting back pain all weekend, David Toms shot a one-under-par 71 on Sunday to win the PGA Buick Challenge at Pine Mountain, Ga., by three strokes with a 271. "I had no idea I would win," said Toms, who won $324,000 and became the sixth multiple-winner on the PGA Tour this year. Toms won the Sprint International in August. Stuart Appleby birdied two of the final three holes for a 71 that put him in second at 14 under and earned him $194,400.
