Larrupin' Lefty's the Stud in This Stable
In the International's modified Stable-ford scoring system, which awards points for par-breakers, you either beat par or get beaten. Nick Faldo made 18 pars in the first round last year, a decade after doing the same in the final round to win the 1987 British Open, and he missed the cut. Castle Pines is heavily wooded, as John Huston (above) discovered last year. The champion's $360,000 in long green is most likely to go to Phil Mickelson, who won here a year ago and is the tournament's only multiple winner.

Low-Price Leaders on A Supermarket Spree
Last summer the oversized check for the winner of the LPGA Classic in Maple Grove, Minn., was inscribed with an oversized name, Danielle Ammaccapane. This summer the Classic signed a one-year deal with new title sponsor Rainbow Foods, but the purse remains one of the tour's smallest at $600,000. That's one reason Annika Sorenstam, Se Ri Pak and Karrie Webb will sit this one out, but Ammaccapane will still have no picnic defending her title against Brandie Burton, Nancy Lopez, Meg Mallon and Colleen Walker.
