Building after building loomed in the near distance, all of them quiet and vacant.

Tornadoes hopscotched across the Tampa Bay area for hours Saturday, killing four people at mobile home parks and smashing dozens of houses into splinters, authorities said. A two-day storm with winds gusting up to 90 m.p.h. also was blamed for sinking a freighter. All 15 crew members were rescued after the 255-foot Holstein went down with 2,000 tons of flour late Friday in the Gulf of Mexico.

1 Is Hale Irwin still the champion of them all? Yes, until somebody knocks him off. Irwin turns 58 in June, yet with his unmatched intensity and the way he keeps himself in shape, there's no reason to believe he'll move aside. Irwin stumbled a bit the final two days of the MasterCard Championship in Hawaii but rebounded with a tie for seventh at the ACE Group Classic at Naples, Fla. In 2002, Irwin finished in the top 10 in 22 of his 27 starts. * 2 Who will be his most formidable challengers?
