That annual chartered airplane from the John Deere Classic to the British Open carried quite the motley assortment from Illinois to the west coast of Scotland on Sunday night. It carried one 29-year-old with zero links experience and a passport he hadn't even brought to Illinois, and it carried a 49-year-old who finds experience "way overrated" and salved his screaming back unapologetically with beers.

Two days after his Presidents Cup snub, Rory Sabbatini made captain Greg Norman's decision to leave him off the International team look even more peculiar. Sabbatini ran off seven birdies on renovated Cog Hill for a five-under-par 66 on Thursday, giving him a share of the lead with Steve Marino at the BMW International and hopes of making it to the FedEx Cup finale. They had a one-shot lead over Bo Van Pelt and Marc Leishman, who qualified for the third playoff event by making an eagle on his final hole Monday at the TPC Boston.

Sergio Garcia took another important step toward recovering from a troublesome season Thursday with a six-under 65 at Liberty National for a share of the lead at the PGA Tour's the Barclays tournament with Paul Goydos and Steve Marino at Jersey City, N.J. "We are getting back into it," Garcia said. "Last week was nice. It was good to see ourselves . . . getting that feeling of being out there trying to win a tournament and getting the juices flowing a little bit. We're just looking forward to hopefully finishing the year well here, keep this good momentum going."

Paul Goydos figured Liberty National at least would look good on television, with the Statue of Liberty and so many other New York landmarks serving as a spectacular backdrop at the Barclays. Inside the ropes is starting to look pretty good to him too. Goydos put together three straight birdies early in the third round Saturday to build a lead that stood up until Steve Marino ran off three straight late on the cloudy afternoon to catch him for the lead. Both shot three-under-par 68 and were at nine-under 204 at Jersey City, N.J. Goydos has only two victories in his 17 years on the PGA Tour.

Steve Stricker birdied the second hole of a sudden-death playoff to beat Tim Clark and Steve Marino and win the PGA Tour's Crowne Plaza Invitational on Sunday at Fort Worth. "This means a lot," he said afterward, his voice cracking and the gallery chanting his last name. "It's tough to win out there. Feel fortunate any time you get a chance to." Clark came in having won the most money ($12.7 million) without winning a tournament in PGA Tour history.

Rookie Webb Simpson found enough birdies on long, tough and wet Liberty National in Jersey City, N.J., to shoot a three-under-par 68 Friday and build a two-shot lead in the Barclays, the opening playoff event on the PGA Tour. Simpson, 24, took the lead with an approach to 10 inches on the fifth hole. He was among nine players who broke par, finishing at eight-under 134. Paul Goydos and Steve Marino, among the leaders after the first round, each had a 71 and were tied for second.

The Solheim Cup is coming down to the singles. Michelle Wie and Cristie Kerr overcame a dismal final two holes to win their match at Sugar Grove, Ill., giving the United States a split in the afternoon foursomes Saturday and sending the Americans into today's 12 single matches tied. Both teams have eight points; the United States needs 14 points to win the Cup for a third straight time, while Europe needs 14 1/2 points to claim its first victory on U.S. soil. The afternoon matches weren't the Americans' finest -- there were two big losses, and Wie and Kerr struggled down the stretch.

Comparing our boot camps to the torture of prisoners (Opinion, Dec. 14) is absurd. When I went to boot camp, we were taught, among other things, how to defend ourselves with, among other things, pugil sticks and hand-to-hand combat. Our drill instructors didn't knock us around; we used them to learn to fight and defend. We carried heavy packs to condition ourselves for combat, and we had drill instructors in our faces to teach us the discipline necessary to survive in combat. I'm amazed that Max Boot compared the training of our troops so they can survive Bush's folly to the torture of prisoners.
