Two highlights stick out in Tom Lehman's career, which has also had its fair share of lows. In 1996, he won the British Open at Royal Lytham & St. Annes. And in 1999, he was on the winning Ryder Cup team at the Country Club in Brookline, Mass. Lehman, who turned 54 last week, has had that kind of success on the Champions Tour, which has stopped at Newport Beach Country Club for the 19th annual Toshiba Classic this week. At the end of 2012, Lehman became the first player to repeat as Champions Tour player of the year, and he became the first golfer in history to be named player of the year on all three PGA tours: the Web.com Tour (formerly known as Nationwide)

GULLANE, Scotland - By the time young pro Jordan Spieth is able to legally buy a beer, he might be able to buy the whole beer company. Spieth will turn 20 on July 27, giving him another year (before he can sidle up to the bar) to work on a bank account that has already grown incredibly. He is the Dallas golfer who left the University of Texas in December to join the pro tour. There are good decisions and great decisions. Judging by current events, that Texas degree can wait.

BIRDIE Tom Lehman putted out on No. 18, and within seconds a fan shouted from the stands: "Thank you, Tom!" Lehman removed his cap in gratitude but then whipped it downward, as if trying to swat a fly. He had just bogeyed the 18th by leaving an eight-foot putt short. Few would have expected Lehman, 50, to make the cut in the PGA Championship, being played in his home state. But Lehman made it with two shots to spare -- and longed to do even better. "The fans here are tremendous; they're the best," Lehman said.

Two weeks after turning 50, former Ryder Cup captain Tom Lehman looked like his old self Saturday in the Transitions Championship at Palm Harbor, Fla., with a three-under-par 68 for his first 54-hole lead in more than four years. Lehman ran off four straight birdies and shot 31 on the back nine to grab a one-shot lead over Retief Goosen. Lehman will try to become only the seventh player in his 50s to win on the PGA Tour.

Tom Lehman, motivated by the early successes of his playing partners, had five birdies and an eagle over his last 14 holes Thursday and shared the lead in the first round of the weather-delayed International. With half of the field still on the course, play was suspended twice in the afternoon by lightning. The 72 players who did not finish their first round were to return at 7 a.m. MDT today, with the second round to begin about two hours later.

Fred Couples spent Friday attracting most of the attention at the 16th annual Toshiba Classic. Saturday, he just stole the whole show. He shot the lowest score in the second round — a seven-under-par 64 — and he takes a two-shot lead into Sunday's final round at Newport Beach Country Club. Tom Lehman, who had the second-lowest score in the second round (65), is tied for second with Chien Soon Lu, who shot a 67. Loren Roberts and Ronnie Black are four shots off the lead.

It didn't go so great for the U.S. Ryder Cup team the last time, but only if you consider the most lopsided American defeat in Ryder Cup history as bad news. At the very least, it provides a starting point for the matches coming up in September, simply because it can't be that terrible again. In fact, Tom Lehman is almost certain it won't.

Tom Lehman made an 80-foot birdie putt on the par-five second hole Friday that helped him take the second-round lead in the Greater Milwaukee Open at Franklin, Wis. "You make one of those a year. It goes over the hump and breaks in--it was ridiculous," Lehman said. "In this game you take it when you can get one like that."

Tom Lehman held the 54-hole lead at Jack Nicklaus' Memorial tournament Saturday, as he did six weeks ago in the Masters. This time, however, th lead he held after Saturday was four strokes instead of the one-shot edge he had at Augusta. He had a third consecutive five-under-par 67 for a 201 total, well ahead of second-place John Cook and eight shots better than Donnie Hammond and David Edwards, who are tied or third. Bob Tway holed a 155-yard nine-iron for an ace on No.

It's still three years away, but if someone had wanted to get a head start and put up a banner at Torrey Pines that welcomed the 2008 U.S. Open, nobody could have seen it Friday because the fog was so thick. Somewhere, there are probably a bunch of guys in the standard-issue white shirts and khaki slacks of the U.S. Golf Assn., who are shaking their heads and realizing that the cold, soupy fog that messed up the second round of the Buick Invitational is their worst nightmare.

They started the Buick Invitational here Thursday at Torrey Pines, but there was so much talk about the North and the South, it sounded a lot more like the Civil War than the first round of a golf tournament. Was it better to play the North Course first, and then the South Course? Would one be better to play first, last, every day? Or never. It didn't take long to figure it all out. The answer was to play the North Course -- every time, if possible.
