Chelsea and United remain divided over Rooney future

Anyone for crazy golf?

THE SCORES came down at Carnoustie yesterday, but there was no reduction in the volume of the complaints as the world's best golfers struggled with the unpredictable winds and the knee-high rough, which have turned their best-laid plans into double and triple bogeys at the 128th Open Championship.

Golf: Duval drives on towards the Masters

A WEEK after David Duval achieved a momentous victory in a gruelling week at The Players Championship, the 27-year-old American confirmed his status as world No 1 and hot favourite for this week's US Masters by winning the BellSouth Classic.

Golf: Missed putts leave Montgomerie struggling

NO ONE conveys dejection quite like Colin Montgomerie. The glories of sunrise on another beautiful southern morning were no contest for the Scot's depression. Twelve hours after being forced to abandon his first round in the BellSouth Classic with two holes to play as dusk fell on Thursday evening, Montgomerie finished par, bogey yesterday for a level- par 72.

Golf: Faldo finds his swing at last

EUPHORIC MAY be a slight exaggeration but Nick Faldo was certainly a happy chappy. "I shall go and have a tuna sandwich to celebrate," he confirmed. And to what can this joyousness be attributed? The first round of the BellSouth Classic represented the first time in 16 attempts that Faldo managed to break 70. With the US Masters looming a week away, it was just in the nick of time for the six-time major champion who has slumped to 97th in the world, 21st in Europe and 11th in Britain.

Golf: Confident Montgomerie makes move

COLIN MONTGOMERIE'S air of quiet confidence at The Players Championship seemed to be justified when he moved towards the top of the leaderboard with a commanding start to his second round at the TPC of Sawgrass. The Scot began the day at level par, four off the lead, but had picked up five birdies without dropping a stroke after 12 holes. While the overnight leaders, Brian Watts and Bob Estes at four under, were late starters, Japan's Joe Ozaki scored a 68 to move to seven under.
