A Tournament of Champions field is the elite of golf. You don't get in this lineup just because you won an Open or a PGA back in the days when Eisenhower was President and coffee was a dime. You have to have shot your way in here by winning a tournament in the past 12 months. You're news, not history. So, naturally, you expect to see Tom Kite and Curtis Strange and Greg Norman and Mark Calcavecchia in here. But Stan Utley?! Wait a minute! You want to run that by me again?! Stan Who !?

An impromptu putting lesson and another day of benign, windless conditions helped Tripp Isenhour fire an eight-under-par 64 Friday and grab a one-shot lead in the Buy.com Tour's Inland Empire Open at Empire Lakes Golf Course. Isenhour's 64 gave him a two-round total of 14-under 130 and a one-shot edge over Fran Quinn, who carded a 65. Former PGA and Canadian tour pro Dave Barr, 48, is two shots back after a 67.

Chris Perry shot a five-under-par 65 to take the lead Friday after two rounds of the Colonial tournament at Ft. Worth. Perry's 36-hole total of 131 is one shot ahead of Wayne Levi, Stan Utley, Gene Sauers and Keith Clearwater. Levi, a four-time winner last year, had a 65 that, he said, "could have been very, very low." Sauers had 66 in the muggy heat that hung over the Colonial Country Club. Clearwater and Utley each shot 64.

Nick Price, crediting an adjusted putting stance, shot a bogey-free 64 Friday to take a one-stroke lead after two rounds of the Byron Nelson tournament at Irving, Tex. Price, who had considered using a long putter, said he made a major improvement in the last two months when he discovered he had most of his weight on his back foot. "When you're putting well, as I have been for the past few weeks, it takes a lot of pressure off your chipping, the rest of your game," Price said.

Tom Kite shot a second consecutive 66 Saturday and moved into a two-stroke lead after three rounds of the Byron Nelson Classic. That lead, said Kite, means absolutely nothing. "All it does is give you a name to put in the newspapers as the third-round leader," said Kite, who had a 54-hole total of 200. "There are, what? Twenty-three guys within five shots? This lead is nothing. It's a crapshoot tomorrow. Who knows what will happen?"

Todd Barranger, an obscure winless rookie, matched his low round of the year with a seven-under-par 65 Thursday to take a one-shot lead in the opening round of the Buick Southern Open in Pine Mountain, Ga. Barranger, a graduate of the 1993 tour qualifying school, held his lead over Australian Steve Elkington, Steve Lamontagne and Jim McGovern, who had two eagles. Barranger birdied two of the first three holes when his approach shots hit the pin, stopping two feet shy on No. 1 and one foot on No.

Another first round of an Open, another terrific day for Tom Watson. With memories from his surprising performance at Olympia Fields still vivid, Watson shot a five-under-par 66 to take a three-stroke lead after the rain-shortened opening round of the U.S. Senior Open at Inverness Club on Thursday at Toledo, Ohio. A thunderstorm suspended play with 36 of the 156 players still on the course. The first round will be completed today, followed by the second round.
