Reporting from Pebble Beach — Tiger Woods is tied for 15th place. That's not bad, but it can be made to sound better. Woods shot a first-round 68 Thursday at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am. That was four under par on the Spyglass Hill course that Woods played, but numbers crunchers and Woods fans can take note that Spyglass played the hardest of the three-course rotation and Woods' 68 was tied for the fourth-best score on Spyglass. "I drove it great today," Woods said, "I drove it on a string for most of the day. But I left a few shots out there.

Lindsey Vonn will skip the World Cup ski races next week in Beaver Creek, Colo., as she recovers from a downhill training crash in which she partially tore one of the reconstructed ligaments in her surgically repaired right knee. The reigning Olympic downhill champion, however, is not ruling out a possible return to racing in Lake Louise, Canada, the following week, her personal publicist, Lewis Kay, said in a statement Friday. The Sochi Games are less than three months away.

Faulty wiring in an outdoor security light ignited a fire Thursday morning that gutted a $10-million mansion in Newport Beach's exclusive Spyglass Hill neighborhood, fire officials said. The owners of the property on Ridgeline Drive had been on vacation for several days, family members reported, and the lights may have been on since Sunday.

PEBBLE BEACH - Lee Westwood still doesn't know why his father took him to the golf course. He played just about every other sport in England when he was 12, such as soccer, cricket and rugby. He used to go fishing with his father, but the fish weren't biting, mainly because Westwood kept throwing stones into the water. So off they went to a golf course called Kilton Forest, neither of them having ever so much as swung a club. Westwood was hooked. "I turned pro at 19 and came on tour, and he was still a 12 handicap, so I can't understand the reasons for that," Westwood said.

Patrick Henry Horgan III recalled that he was paired with Tom Watson during the third round of a tournament in New Orleans in 1989. Horgan shot a 67 and Watson had a 69. "He asked me if I had to qualify for the tournament," Horgan said. "I said, 'No, Tom. I'm on the tour.' " Horgan, who was identified as "Morgan" on a local television newscast Thursday, is not so obscure now.

Brett Ogle, a 28-year-old Australian playing on the PGA Tour for the first time, has said that people in the United States don't know him. That relationship may change. Ogle maintained his lead in the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am on Saturday by shooting a three-under-par 69 at Spyglass Hill, the most difficult course of the three-course rotation.

When the folks at the Newport Beach Marriott Hotel and Tennis Club built a new wing and tower onto their hotel 2 1/2 years ago and decided to put a cocktail lounge on top, the predictable what-to-name-the-bar question undoubtedly came up. It's nice to think that some local Solomon, after rejecting names such as Rich Corinthian Leather Lounge and The Doo Dah Room, stepped forward and said: "Why don't we all go up there and just blurt out the...

In the hills of Newport Coast, the natural topography has changed to that of homes, people and newly planted trees. In spots you can still see unspoiled terrain, but it is being overrun by bulldozers and tractors inch by inch. On Nov. 10, as we were cleaning up our dinner plates, a family of four was coming up from the hills on San Joaquin Hills Road. The four-legged beautiful gentle creatures from Buck Canyon had left their natural habitat below to find food. The road was dark and the cars were going fast.

PEBBLE BEACH -- It was a busy Saturday at the AT&T National Pebble Beach Pro-Am, where Phil Mickelson missed the cut by taking way too many shots to play the 14th hole at Pebble Beach and Vijay Singh moved into a tie for the lead by using a small amount of shots to maneuver his way around Spyglass Hill. Go figure how Mickelson, the defending champion, can miss the cut. The recipe is simple. Crack two balls out of bounds on the same hole, mix well for an 11 and you're thoroughly baked.

In last year's first round of the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am, Phil Mickelson fired a shocking 62 at Spyglass Hill, good for a course record. Many exhaled slowly and spoke in hushed tones about just how long Mickelson's mark would last. Probably into the next century was the best guess. Hopefully, they used a pencil to write down Mickelson's record.

Phil's on fire, at least in the golf sense, a Mickelsonian condition represented by symptoms of extreme low scores and a high number of birdies. If Phil Mickelson were any hotter, he'd either come with asbestos gloves, a pilot light or a warning label. Consider what he did on opening day at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am. Mickelson flung a course record, 10-under-par 62 at Spyglass Hill and ambled to a three-shot lead, the biggest first-round lead here in 27 years. What's up with this?

My husband, Brian, has had the same mistress for years. He spends most weekends with her, claims she keeps him in shape and takes away his stress, but often he'll come home more frustrated than ever. I've tried to entice him away with new extracurricular activities, but I know he'll never give her up. He's hooked. His addiction to the game of golf can be spooky; I don't know if a man could be this passionate about a woman.
