Baltimore Sun’s BEST party in 2 weeks

Veteran Jones swings into new career phase


GALLOWAY TOWNSHIP, N.J. -- The 2005 season was winding down, and the way Rosie Jones had it figured, so was her career on the LPGA Tour. As well as she was playing, as competitive as she was, the injuries weren't going away. Nor were the tour's upstarts, some of whom were young enough to be her daughter.

"Everything as far as my body goes is screaming at me, 'What are you doing to me, just stop,' " Jones, 46, said one afternoon last week, standing on the practice tee at the Marriott Seaview Resort and Spa before the start of the ShopRite LPGA Classic.
