With one dramatic, lightning-quick putt on the only hole of the day, Jeff Quinney won the U.S. Amateur, avoided a lifetime of "what ifs" and got a bonus--a golfing date next year with Tiger Woods. Quinney, who blew a three-hole lead with three holes to play in regulation, won the weather-suspended 100th Amateur on Monday by sinking a 30-foot birdie putt on the 39th hole to defeat James Driscoll. The 39 holes tied the U.S. Amateur record for the longest title match.

After four years of disappointment, Eric Meeks finally succeeded at the U.S. Amateur golf championships. "I've played well before, but not in anything as good as this. It was a good time to do it," Meeks, 23, of Walnut, said after becoming the U.S. Amateur champion Sunday with a 7 and 6 win over Danny Yates of Atlanta. In each of his four previous U.S. Amateurs, Meeks, from Friendly Hills Country Club, had missed qualifying by a stroke.

The subject of Oliver Rheinfurth's depression comes up, and almost instantly tears flood the eyes of Ursula Rheinfurth, his mother. "It was a very, very difficult time," Ursula said, her voice filled with concern. "I didn't know what to do." Moments later, the subject turns to Oliver's recovery, his return to normal life, the golf course and his appearance in the U.S. Amateur Championship beginning Monday at Oak Hill Country Club in Rochester, N.Y. The tears turn to laughter.

Tiger Woods, who had trouble controlling his short irons in his first Masters, did so perfectly to win his second U.S. Amateur on Sunday at Newport, R.I., and earn another trip to Augusta. "I spent hours and hours on the range and it paid off on the 18th hole," said Woods, who hit a 140-yard eight-iron shot 18 feet past the pin and watched it spin back to within 16 inches of the hole to all but end his 36-hole match with George (Buddy) Marucci.
