"What kind of guy am I?" asked singer-guitarist Steve Jones, absent-mindedly stroking his chin as he pondered the question. You could tell something caustic was coming. "I'll tell you. I'm not the kind of guy a girl would take home to her mother. She'd kick the girl out and probably call the cops on me." Jones looked smug. He obviously still likes being thought of as a rowdy rogue--just like in the old days.

It's come to this -- a Sex Pistol drives a Prius. On a recent crisp afternoon, Steve Jones, the guitar architect of London punk in its primacy, zipped down Hollywood Boulevard in his shiny white hybrid Toyota, which is customized with a rooftop image of her majesty Queen Elizabeth, a safety pin jutting from her lip. And you thought punk rock was dead. Even with the distraction of nubile young tourists strolling up the Walk of Fame, Jones was in a melancholy mood.

Just in case you forgot, the Sex Pistols are still anti-establishment -- even if the establishment is the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

The last five U.S. Opens have been won by players who had not won a major tournament and have not won one since. TOM KITE 1992 Kite had won 15 times on the PGA Tour before the '92 Open at Pebble Beach and had several close calls in the majors--seven top-five finishes in the Masters, two in the British Open and two in the PGA.

Steve Jones, whose triumph in last year's U.S. Open capped his comeback from a 1991 dirt-bike accident, shot a nine-under-par 62 Thursday for a two-stroke lead over Nick Price at the Phoenix Open. Jones was two shots off the tournament and course record of 60 set by Grant Waite last year. Jones sank birdie putts of 1 1/2, 8, 5, 30, 25, 20 and 1 feet. He also chipped in from 40 feet on the fifth hole and two-putted from 25 feet on No. 15, a short par five.

Steve Jones shot a seven-under-par 63 and took a two-stroke lead Friday at the halfway point of the $800,000 Texas Open. A four-time PGA Tour winner but firing mostly blanks this year, Jones used a 15-foot eagle putt on the par-five fifth hole of the short but testy Oak Hills course at San Antonio and post a 12-under-par total of 128. Duffy Waldorf, a former UCLA star, shot a 63 after an opening 67 and was alone at 130.

Steve Jones, the U.S. Open champion, the guy who then tied for 70th at Memphis and at the Western Open, and missed the cut at the British Open, was so concerned about the shape of his golf game last week that he decided there was only one way to get really serious about preparing for this week's PGA Championship in Louisville, Ky. He went fishing . . . in Montana . . . all week.

The voice of Steve "Jonesy" Jones is not what you would call a classic FM-radio baritone. His cockney ramble is as graceful as a freight truck with balky gears, and every weekday he helms a two-hour radio show that staggers, mutters and misfires like a boozy sailor tossing darts in a West London dive. "I don't know if we're giving anything away," he told his listeners on a recent show. "I couldn't give a toss, to be honest with you. Let's play another song, another pox Christmas song ...

There was no runaway Friday in the Phoenix Open. Kelly Gibson and Brent Geiberger saw to it. In another sense, so did Steve Jones. "I made sure of that," Jones said after ruining what could have been a sensational round with four bogeys in the last eight holes for a 69 and a two-round total of 134. "I fell asleep. I was awake on the front and asleep on the back." Gibson shot a five-under-par 66, improving by one stroke on his opening round, to lead the $2.5-million tournament at nine-under 133.
