Tiger Growls Again, Backstreeter Back
REBOUND: Tiger Woods ended his winless summer with a birdie Sunday on the seventh playoff hole to defeat Jim Furyk in the NEC Invitational, ending the longest playoff on the PGA Tour in 10 years. "It was a war today," said Woods, who started the final round two strokes behind. "Neither one of us gave an inch. It was fun to be a part of it" . . . RETURNED: All five Backstreet Boys resumed the "Black & Blue World Tour 2001" Friday night at Milwaukee's Bradley Center. The tour was put on hold July 9, when group member A.J. McLean, 23, entered an undisclosed treatment center for depression and alcohol abuse. "We actually went and saw A.J. during the time he was there," Backstreeter Brian Littrell said Friday. "And that was good for us and good for him, I'm sure, to see him in his environment." The Boys still have 23 concert dates left on the tour . . . REMUNERATED: There were four winning tickets sold in the $295 million Powerball lottery, the third largest in U.S. history, held Saturday night, according to lottery officials. Winning tickets were purchased in New Hampshire, Minnesota, Delaware, and Kentucky, though winners will not be known until they come forward with their tickets. On Sunday, Kentuckian David Edwards, 46, a divorced father who had just been laid off from his job, stepped forward and claimed to be one of the winners (his split: $74 million) . . . DIED: Actress Jane Greer, 76, a film noir star and former wife of bandleader Rudy Vallee (whom she married in spite of the fact that her studio boss, Howard Hughes, was in love with her), died of cancer in Los Angeles on Friday. The former beauty queen outfoxed Robert Mitchum and Kirk Douglas in 1947's noir classic "Out of the Past."
