Home Girls St. Andrews finally opened its arms to the greatest female players in the world last week, and the Women's British Open at the Home of Golf was a raging success, although two blips kept it from being all it could have been. First, number 17, the Road Hole, a 453-yard par-4 in Open Championships, was played from the normal tee but as a par-5, making par for the course 73. The reason: Officials feared that bad weather would make the hole unreachable. Really? Why couldn't they simply find a forward teeing ground to use in foul conditions instead of messing with history, the most storied second shot in golf and the value of par? Second, the pace of play was atrocious, with multiple six-hour rounds clogging the course. Earlier this year the LPGA did an admirable job of establishing and enforcing new pace-of-play regulations. Rounds were noticeably faster, and the players were policing themselves beautifully. Since mid-May, though, the pace seems to have crept backward. Granted,
Welcome to this week's edition of the Monday Awards, where ESPN has packed Dick Vitale back up in a box until late October and it's unclear why Knick fans are excited about Zach "I won't get into any trouble in NYC" Randolph.

Westchester Country Club would seem to be an ideal breeding ground for tour pros. It has two 18-hole courses, a nine-hole par-3 layout, a sprawling practice tee, two huge practice greens and a short-game practice area. There are droves of kids in the junior program, and virtually all of them have well-heeled parents who furnish them with the latest equipment, lessons with the club's seven instructors and funds to compete around the country. A PGA Tour event has been held on the grounds every year since 1967.
In the U.S., Lorena Ochoa is most readily identified as the reigning Associated Press Female Athlete of the Year. In her native Mexico she is much more: the nation's sweetheart. Two weeks ago Ochoa played in front of her compatriots at the MasterCard Championship, outside Mexico City, and you had to be there to comprehend the intensity of the ardor.
Ten years ago, believe it or not, there were no fully exempt Koreans on the LPGA tour. And then there was one: Se Ri Pak, a lonely 19-year-old with a pushy father and a limited command of English. When Pak, as a rookie, won four tournaments in 1998 (including the LPGA Championship and the U.S. Women's Open), hundreds of South Korean girls began training for golf careers of their own. Now that first wave of Korean players has landed in America -- this year 45 of them hold tour cards -- and a typical LPGA leader board is now covered with mellifluous monosyllables: Kims and Yims, Ahns and Hans, Jangs and Kangs.
"I never imagined this would be coming up again," says Ping chairman John Solheim, whose father, company founder Karsten Solheim, sued the USGA and the PGA Tour in 1989 after they tried to ban the square grooves used in the company's Eye2 irons. (The Eye2's were deemed conforming, and both suits were settled out of court.) On Feb. 27 the USGA proposed new regulations on grooves, arguing that current designs impart too much spin on the ball, especially from the rough, thus de-emphasizing the importance of driving accuracy. Like his father, Solheim is not buying the argument, but the USGA is soliciting feedback on the proposal, so, Solheim says, "we will put in our comments and wait to see what they decide." If the USGA stands by the specifications of its new proposal, does he foresee more legal action? Responds Solheim, "I'm not going to say anything about that at this time, because I'm praying it won't get that far."

Annika Sorenstam said a Swedish newspaper took out of context her plans to quit golf and have children.
Somehow, it figures that Paul Goydos, the everyman hard-luck Linus of the PGA Tour, finally wins a tournament for the first time in 11 years and he's not even the main headline. The biggest story at the Sony Open was that of a local Hawaiian teen sensation who made the cut and won the hearts of fellow Hawaiians.
