    Standing outside the jockey’s room on opening day Wednesday at Del Mar, Patrick Valenzuela is a magnet — and magnetic in a bubble-gum, Seersucker suit.

    CARNOUSTIE, Scotland — Some clouds came in and the wind started blowing — if just a bit — as Tiger Woods played the early holes Thursday, making what had been a warm, sunny day seem a little more like a British Open.
