INDIO, Calif. (AP) - Greg Nor-
man had ll the odds in his favor as
he stood over a bunker shot next to
the 18th green yesterday at the
Skins Game. No one had won a
dime yet, but Norman was about to
earn a bundle.
The only question was how big
that bundle would be.
Norman ended up making it a
cool $1 million, making a routine
par on the 18th hole and adding a
birdie on the second extra hole to
sweep all the money.
Norman's win in a new format
made him the biggest winner in the
19-year history of the event. It also
made losers out of Tiger Woods,
Jesper Parnevik and Colin Mont-
gomerie, who all went home empty-
handed.
"Any win is a great win, whether
it's a Skins Game or a regular tour-
nament," Norman said. "It's very
satisfying to do it. Whenever you
beat the caliber of players like that,
it's good."
Norman, after making a birdie on
the 17th hole to win all the previous
skins, needed to only par the 18th to
become the big winner.
That was because a new rule

forced a player to at least tie for low
score on the next hole after winning
a skin.
He did it with a conservative sand
shot and two putts that allowed him
to cash in 17 skins worth $800,000.
Still at stake, though, was the
$200,000 skin from the 18th hole,
which Norman added for good
measure on a five-footer for birdie
on the second playoff hole.
"I've never had to make a par for .
$800,000 in my life," Norman said.
The course was set up so viewers
could see birdies. On the stretch of
five holes beginning on No. 12,
there was no hole more than 388
yards and two of the par-4s were
within driving distance.
But there were only two birdies
on those holes - both at the 300-
yard 14th - before Parnevik sank
his 20-footer on 16.
Woods, who signed a television
deal to appear in four Skins Games
over five years, was supposed to
boost ratings and galleries.
He may have, but his game was
nothing more than ordinary, as he
plodded along with nothing but pars
on the back nine before the 18th
hole.

Former Dodger loves
to fly and it shows
LOS ANGELES (AP) - Former
Dodgers shortstop Kevin Elster has been
included in a lawsuit filed by a Delta Air
Lines flight attendant who claims she
was threatened and required spinal sur-
gery after a trip last
year.
The lawsuit was
filed in June by San-
% ~dra Komine, 45,
against former
Dodgers pitcher Car-
los Perez and the team.
At the time, she identi-
Elster fied Elster only as a
200-pound player who ignored instruc-
tions to wear his seat belt and fell on her
during landing on July 2, 2000.
On Thursday, Dodgers lawyer John
Collins confirmed that Elster was
included.
Komine claims that before a 45-
minute flight from San Francisco to Los
Angeles, Perez grabbed her hair and
"shook her head violently side to side,"
and shook her again during landing after
she asked him to turn off his cellular
telephone.
Shortly after takeoff, Perez claimed to
have a handgun and threatened to shoot
several attendants, telling one, "I can do
anything I want to you."
Komine's suit claims negligence,
assault and battery, intentional infliction
of emotional distress and loss of consor-
tium.
Judge Emilie Elias on Wednesday
overruled most of the Dodgers' chal-
lenges to Komine's lawsuit, dismissing
only the claim of negligent infliction of
emotional distress.
Elster, who also played with the New
York Mets and Texas Rangers, was not
re-signed by the Dodgers after the 2000
season. Perez was released last May.
Ailing Mashburn may
* miss several months
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -
Charlotte Hornets forward Jamal
Mashburn may be out for up to two
months because of an abdominal
strain that is more serious than orig-
inally believed.
Mashburn, the Hornets' second-
leading scorer, has already missed
three games because of the injury.
The diagnosis was originally a
strained right groin, . but was
changed.
One possible treatment for the
injury is surgery, unnamed sources
told The Charlotte Observer.
Doctors are still considering the
most appropriate option and have
not yet made a decision about treat-
ment.
A team spokesman said no addi-
tional information on Mashburn's
condition or prognosis would be
available until Tuesday, after team
physician. Glenn Perry and others
have had a chance to consult with
the specialists Mashburn has seen.
"All I know is he's not going to be
around for a while. What the cir-
cumstances are, I don't know,"
coach Paul Silas said.
"I don't have a clue how long it
will be. All I know is it will be at

least three games. The strain is
behind the abdominal wall that goes
into the groin area, from what I
understand."
Mashburn was not available for
comment.
The Hornets brought rookie Kirk
Haston off the injured list in time
for Friday's home game against
Orlando, giving them a full active
roster of 12 players.
Racing crowd struck
by stray Ford Focus
CARMARTHEN, Wales (AP) -
Two-time world champion Carlos
Sainz's car went off the road and
plowed into a spectator area during
the British Rally on Saturday, leav-
ing 13 fans hospitalized.
None of the 13 was in life-threat-
ening condition at West Wales Gen-
eral Hospital, police spokesman Dai
Davies said.
A 12-year-old boy and 13-year-
old girl sustained leg injures. Two
adults had serious head and back
injuries, and nine others were
expected to be released with scrapes
and bruises.
Police initially reported at least 15
were injured, but said two victims
who arrived by helicopter were
counted twice.
The accident happened during the
11th stage of the rally - the third
stage on Saturday. Crowds estimated
at 50,000 daily attend the four-day
rally, one of the most popular sports
events in Wales.
Sainz slid wide in his Ford Focus
while taking a corner in a forested
area about eight miles into the 18.5-
mile stage, a Ford spokesman said.
Sainz was not injured and finished
the stage before withdrawing. Ford
also withdrew its other car from the
rally.
Richard Burns, closing in on his
first World Rally Championship,
remained in second place overall
after the 11 thstage. Marcus Gron-
hold of Finland was in first place.
"It does not matter how I feel
about driving," Burns said. "This
puts everything into perspective."

PONTIAC, Mich. (AP) - The Green Bay Packers don't
feel sorry for the winless Detroit Lions.
They're just happy to escape Detroit.
The Lions made up all but two points of a 16-point deficit
in the final seven minutes with two touchdowns and a 2-
point conversion, before Green Bay survived with a 29-27
win on Thursday.
"It's not our place to feel bad for the other team," Green
Bay's William Henderson said. "It's on them to turn it
around."
The Packers (7-3) won in the Silverdome for the first time
in five years and for just the second time in the regular sea-
son since 1992 to close within a half-game of Chicago in the
NFC Central.
But the Lions once again came close to their first win of
the season, missing a chance to send the game into overtime
when rookie quarterback Mike McMahon threw an incom-
plete pass on a 2-point conversion with 10 seconds left.
"For 10 years, the games here have always been like this
- turnovers and a lot of wild things," said Brett Favre, who
had thrown 10 interceptions in his last four games in
Detroit. "I'm just thankful that we got this win, because we

appeared to be set to win easily.
But McMahon, who was 9-of-20 for 89 yards with a
touchdown, kept Detroit's hopes alive.
"I have the utmost respect for Charlie Batch, who is a
class guy," Green Bay coach Mike Sherman said, "but when
Mike McMahon came in the game, it turned the whole
game around.
Lamont Warren's one-yard touchdown and McMahon's 2-
point conversion run cut the deficit to 29-21 with 1:17 left.
After Todd Lyght recovered an onside kick, McMahon threw a
29-yard touchdown pass to rookie Scotty Anderson on a fourth-
and-8 with ten seconds left. But McMahon scrambled and
threw a pass through the end zone on the two-point try.
Batch was 8-of-19 for 118 yards with no touchdowns, an
'interception and a fumble before McMahon, who played one
series in the first half, came on midway through the fourth
quarter.
Batch had set franchise records for completions (36),
attempts (62) and yards (436) in the last week's loss at Ari-
zona. He said he couldn't plant and throw effectively
because of a groin pull.
McMahon refused to fuel a quarterback controversy that
mayv brew infDetroit...
