Bottom Lines


Metal Woods: Hang on to those Franklin Mint medallions of Tiger
Woods. They rose in value when a judge barred Franklin from
using Woods's name or likeness.

Metal Woods II: Callaway makes the pros' favorite fairway woods.
Which firm comes in second? An outfit by the name of Orlimar,
which makes the TriMetal.

Ratings: TV numbers for the Masters were down 33%. Still, the
second round's 3.9 rating on USA made it the most watched
tournament ever on cable.

Ratings II: Hale Irwin recently called Gil Morgan the top senior.
"That was then," said Irwin after winning last week.

Feeling Indigo: Doug Sanders on the three-footer he missed on
the final hole at the '70 British Open, which he lost to Jack
Nicklaus: "There isn't a day when I don't think of that putt."

Ryder Cup Preview: Only three Europeans are ranked among the
world's top 20.
