After twin bombings at last year's Boston Marathon killed three people and injured 264, officials have established additional security measures for this spring's race. The changes include a law enforcement presence that will be doubled to more than 3,500 officers. "This year, runners and spectators will see more uniformed police officers on the course and as they approach the course," Kurt Schwartz, director of the Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency, told reporters. "And in some areas, the uniformed police officers will be accompanied by bomb-sniffing canines.

It appears that Tiger Woods and his former caddie, Steve Williams, have put an end to their feud that began after Woods fired Williams in 2011. Williams now caddies for Adam Scott, who was paired with Woods in the final round of the British Open on Sunday. After the round was over, Williams and Woods shook hands and shared a few words before Williams patted Woods on the shoulder. “He was saying it was a good fight out there today,” Woods said. Woods' current caddie, Joe LaCava, said that Williams and Woods talked during the round too. "I think it's great if that's the case if it's getting better," LaCava said.

Adam Scott has experienced the victory stroll up the 18th fairway before, including more than half a dozen times on the PGA Tour — but never like this. Fans breaking into sing-song chant. Shouts of Sunday cheer as spectators called out the name … of his caddie? "I had no idea how popular a New Zealander can be," Scott said. Not just any New Zealander. Steve Williams, the Kiwi caddie until recently employed by Tiger Woods before a breakup that doesn't seem ready to die quite yet. In Woods' return from a 12-week injury layoff, there was Williams removing the 18th-hole flag that is the traditional reward for the winning caddie.

In 1983, Steve Williams, who for a decade had been America's best sprinter, sat down and wrote a screenplay. He described it as an Animal House-type look at the world of big time track and field. Williams told a story of under-the-table payments and indiscriminate drug use. It was a comedy. "No one believed it," Williams said recently. "No one wanted to touch it. Now, with what we all know about the sport, lots of producers are interested."

Ethan Rarick, an avowed Democrat, says, "I will support a nonpartisan redistricting of Democrat-dominated California on the same day I can be assured of similar fairness in Republican states" (Opinion, Oct. 2). That's the problem with today's Democrats; they want to follow someone else's lead rather than exhibit the kind of responsibility and accountability that would eventually result in their return to national political dominance. STEVE WILLIAMS Apple Valley Rarick, a Democrat, admits gerrymandering isn't fair but sees it as a necessary tool to fight Republicans.

GULLANE, Scotland - Sunday at the British Open could bring one of the great three-way matchups in golf history: Tiger Woods versus British favorite son Lee Westwood versus a nightmare named Muirfield. Westwood smiled his way around the rough and sharp edges of Muirfield for a 70 and a three-under-par 210 total that puts him two shots ahead of Woods and Hunter Mahan. Those three are the only ones that Muirfield has allowed to break par through three rounds. Masters champion Adam Scott is next at even par, followed by four at one over, including the irrepressible Zach Johnson, and two at two over, including the often magical and ever unpredictable Phil Mickelson.

LYTHAM ST. ANNES, England - So much was going on at the British Open on Saturday that it was hard to tell whether this was a golf tournament or a mystery novel. The what-ifs were as fascinating as the who-done-its. The who-done-its were mainly Adam Scott, Zach Johnson and Graeme McDowell. Scott, a handsome and heretofore underachieving Aussie, played with 36-hole leader Brandt Snedeker in the final twosome, caught him quickly as Snedeker's magic-wand putter ran out of batteries, and walked right down the middle of most fairways to a two-under-par 68 and a four-shot lead.

Jack Nicklaus said Wednesday that "it would surprise me" if Tiger Woods did not return to competitive golf in time for the Masters, a tournament the embattled world No. 1 has won four times in his career. "I suspect he'll play something before Augusta," Nicklaus said behind the 18th green at PGA National, where the Honda Classic opens Thursday in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla.. "Your guess is as good as mine. I'd be very surprised if he doesn't play something before Augusta."

Tiger Woods drove on adjacent fairways twice on the back nine, hit a cup of beer in a spectator's hand, got rattled by a bug and was relegated to shaping some shots around trees and under branches. He still managed to shoot a seven-under-par 65 on Saturday in the third round of the Buick Open at Grand Blanc Township, Mich., giving him a 17-under 199 total and a one-stroke lead when Michael Letzig (68) double-bogeyed the last hole.

We've seen this all before, just not for a while ... an exotic shot at the back of a green from out of the shadows ... the red shirt on a Sunday with a major on the line ... the stylistic fist pump when the ball drops in the hole ... a championship at the Masters for Tiger Woods. Cheers and hugs were the order of the moment in the gathering dusk at the back of the 18th green at Augusta National Golf Club, where Woods wrapped his arms around caddie Steve Williams.
