Stacy Lewis made a 15-foot putt for par on the 17th hole, a shot that took a hard left turn as it slowed. It was as if a GPS voice in Lewis' head told her ball, "Left turn in two feet. " When the ball dropped, Lewis bent over. Her head was down; her shaking hands were on her legs. Lewis didn't look up until Yani Tseng finished that same par-three 17th hole with a dispiriting bogey. Lewis, a 26-year-old who had never won a professional tournament, now has a big one. With a final round of three-under-par 69, Lewis finished the Kraft Nabisco Championship at Mission Hills Country Club in Rancho Mirage with a 13-under 72-hole total of 275 and a three-shot win over Tseng, the defending champion.

The Lakers confirmed Thursday that Dwight Howard would be sidelined when the team opens its preseason slate of games Oct. 7 in Fresno against the Golden State Warriors. Howard is not expected to be ready to participate when the Lakers start training camp Oct. 2. The newly acquired center, who had surgery in April to repair a herniated disk in his back, said last month that he might not be ready by the Lakers' season opener Oct. 30. The Lakers probably will shift Pau Gasol to center in Howard's absence and use Jordan Hill as their starting power forward.

It was criticism from one of the best in women's golf, and Michelle Wie was hurt. Annika Sorenstam, who has retired from the LPGA, suggested last month during the U.S. Women's Open that Wie was shortchanging women's golf by pursuing her degree at Stanford. "I think her focus, in my opinion, should be more on golf," Sorenstam said. "She's very distracted with school, doesn't really play as much full time as I thought she would. I think she needs to come out here and compete more regularly.

Justin Leonard described his round Friday at Disney as a "fun, easy day," and it was every bit of that. He had a nine-under 63 for his lowest round of the year, putting him in a tie for the lead with Henrik Stenson and Bio Kim at the Children's Miracle Network Classic at Lake Buena Vista, Fla. By the time he headed for the Magic Kingdom for the parade with his four children, all was well. Leonard, Stenson (64) and Kim (65) were at 12-under 132, two shots clear of Nick O'Hern (66)

The NBA players' association wanted a meeting and said the league would grant one — under one condition. Just agree first to a 50-50 split of revenues. Players already rejected that offer once. The league confirmed it wasn't moving beyond that number but wanted to meet about other issues, and it said the union wasn't interested. All that matters: An on-time start to the NBA season now seems even less likely. Commissioner David Stern has said the league will cancel the first two weeks of the regular season if the sides can't reach a labor agreement by Monday, and it now appears the sides won't even talk before then.

Where are the Americans in the world's most prominent individual sports, golf and tennis? Not on the leaderboards very often. The sports' next majors begin soon — the U.S. Open men's golf championship on Thursday at Congressional Country Club in Bethesda, Md., and Wimbledon at the All England Lawn Tennis Club on Monday — and there doesn't seem much reason to expect an American winner. On turf where, in the not-too-distant past, Americans dominated, they now mostly founder.

The fact that an American golfer is ranked No. 1 in the world is not a surprise. The fact that a second golfer is ranked No. 1 - a woman - is very much a surprise. Of course, everyone knows Tiger Woods; the other is Stacy Lewis, and she has been talking a little Twitter trash with her top-ranked counterpart. "I tweeted Tiger, 'Congrats. Welcome back to No. 1.'" She was being funny. "Apparently in [140] characters, people couldn't find the humor in that," Lewis said. Lewis' ascension to No. 1 caught a lot of people by surprise.

If past success in big tournaments has anything to do with predicting success on the weekend of a major championship, then good luck handicapping the field at the midway point of Kraft Nabisco Championship. The top eight players after two rounds have a combined 13 major titles, which seemingly sets up a weekend clash of women's golf heavyweights at Mission Hills Country Club in Rancho Mirage. Unheralded South Korean Song-Hee Kim has the midway lead after her four-under-par 68 today during the second round gave her a two-day total of seven-under 137, but lined up just behind her is a parade of past major champions poised to pounce.
