WORLD RECORD: How much golf is too much? How about 17 rounds in 24 hours, the record recently set by five Englishmen in Iceland?

NICK FALDO: He's playing in the next three Euro tour events, hoping to accumulate enough points to make the Ryder Cup team. As if captain Seve Ballesteros wouldn't pick him otherwise.

A BALLESTEROS FINALLY WINS: Baldomero, Seve's six-year-old son, won a nine-hole event in Spain.

FADING: Every Senior tour event on network television this season has had a lower rating than it did last year.

COURSES: There are more golf courses in the U.S. (15,703) than McDonald's restaurants (10,915).

PHIL MICKELSON: It took awhile, but his partnership with IBM has paid off with a neat Web site. At www.phil-mickelson.com you can see Lefty's swing from two angles and at three speeds. Way cool.

PAUL STANKOWSKI: If he doesn't qualify on points, isn't he the most logical Ryder Cup selection? He ranks in the top 20 in driving, scoring, money, eagles, birdies and all-around, and has five top-10 finishes in 19 starts.
