In N.Y., Phil Mushnick notes that Tiger Woods and Billy Mayfair rode golf carts to the first hole of sudden death in yesterday's Nissan Open on CBS. Mushnick: "That neither Jim Nantz nor Ken Venturi mentioned this -- as it was Venturi who testified on behalf of the PGA Tour in the Casey Martin case -- was pathetic." The carts were used in sudden death "to expedite play to keep CBS from minimizing its loss of previously scheduled programming" (N.Y. POST, 3/2)....Hughes Electronics Corp.'s DirecTV unit "plans to announce long- term marketing deals" with Bell-Atlantic and SBC Communications. The new partners "won't take an equity stake" in DirecTV (WALL STREET JOURNAL, 3/2).
