I think of the middle irons as being anything from a 5- to 7-iron. The 7-iron borders on a short iron. To play these irons, your stance should be slightly less than or at shoulder width. Too wide a stance will cause you to sweep the club too much, while a narrow stance will cause you to swing too steeply. Bend from the hips so that your arms hang comfortably with a slight flex in the knees. You should try to keep your spine as straight as possible.

Richard Dunn When Ted Norby set the course record at Newport Beach Country Club, there were no galleries, no CNBC television cameras and no members of the Senior PGA Tour to compete against. But, for the former Corona del Mar High and UC Irvine standout, his 10-under-par 61 was a career low, and, quite possibly, a score that could last a long time. "I've played a lot of golf, and that's the best round I've seen," said local golf professional Eric Woods, who played with Norby that day along with Dave Donnellan, a former assistant pro at the club.

What do you get when you combine Best Buys columnist Greer Wylder and Karen Wight for a shopping trip? Two very worried husbands. Greer has been writing Best Buys for nine years. In that time, she has cultivated a fabulous repertoire of behind the scenes shopping locations. I got lucky this week and tagged along on one of her "missions." The destination was the Historic Plaza, aka the "Circle" in Orange. The object of our quest was outdoor lighting. I had not been up to Orange for a shopping safari for some time, and I was not disappointed.

BRYCE ALDERTON Sinking a hole-in-one alone is an accomplishment every golfer strives to achieve. I'm still trying after 13 years of playing this crazy game. But when I heard Sid DuPont's story, I nearly fell out my chair in amazement. The 63-year-old DuPont, a Newport Beach Country Club member, tallied two hole-in-ones in less than a week. In back-to-back rounds, four days apart no less. DuPont aced the par-3 203-yard eighth hole Oct. 24 with a 5-wood alongside witnesses Jack Ericsmoen, Craig Carlson and John Fries.

BY TONY LEE COSTA MESA — The final leaderboard at the 37th annual Costa Mesa City Championship was dominated by eagles, literally and figuratively. Jason Bittick, first-round leader and the Santa Margarita High Eagles’ varsity golf coach, represented his mascot well Sunday by recording three eagles of his own en route a tournament-low eight-under-par 134, to win by four strokes. “I thought I put the pins in some hard spots,” Tournament Director Sean Collins said.

Many people resist the urge to play executive golf courses and I think that is a big mistake. There are several advantages to those shorter courses that can help tremendously the next time you play a regulation course. Still the negative connotation exists. Many golfers think those type of courses are beneath them and tag them with the derogatory term, pitch and putt. Those courses are for juniors and old women, they believe. My friend is one of those people and I have tried countless times to get him over to Newport Beach Golf Course, but he has adamantly refused.

When the clutter prevented her from opening the door to her son's bedroom, Laura Wasilowski decided to do something about it. So, she created a quilt. Titled "Gus Cleans His Room," the whimsical wall quilt features a giant vacuum outside the bedroom window sucking everything out of the room. Wasilowski says her work is unique because there is a story behind the illustrations she incorporates into each of her quilts and the stories are usually funny.

Corona del Mar High senior Marina Coskinas is the only returning starter for one of the top girls' water polo programs in the country, a program that is coming off winning its first CIF Southern Section Division 1 title. It's something that Coskinas doesn't take lightly. There is the responsibility of being one of four senior team captains this year. There is the responsibility of scoring goals, much more than last year, when her primary offensive focus was often just to hold position at two meters.

Life on the road has been a hotbed of adventures for the Wanted. Waking up in different time zones, digging through suitcases, eating potatoes for breakfast, squabbling and leaving smelly socks lying around have all contributed to the rapport shared by the quintet. Although having fun is a priority, members of the British-Irish boy band, united by a bone-deep passion for music, remind themselves that they are blessed. "It's a really exciting journey we are on. I mean, I'm sitting in my hotel looking at a theme park," guitarist Siva Kaneswaran, 24, said by phone from San Jose.

Re "Iron Lady' portrayal is inaccurate," Mailbag, Jan. 27 I read with great interest Dr. R. Claire Friend's letter regarding "The Iron Lady," currently in release in movie theaters. While I share Friend's disappointment in how the story unfolded (all too few flashbacks reminiscing the former prime minister's achievements, chief among them her meteoric rise) focusing more instead on her diminished state of mind, I take particular issue with the doctor taking Harvey Weinstein to task as the doctor did. The Weinstein Co. bought and distributed the film; that is the extent of their involvement.

Meryl Streep is without question an actress of extraordinary and seemingly limitless talent who was recently recognized as one of our national treasures. Her portrayal is so uncannily believable we are persuaded Streep is Margaret Thatcher. She is truly a phenomenon, convincing us what we see is actual reality, not virtual reality. That the famed Weinstein brothers — whose Weinsten Co. made the film — have used the greatest living actress to humiliate Baroness Thatcher is both disgraceful and unforgivable.

Once again, Meryl Streep gives an Oscar-worthy performance in a big role on the big screen. Her acting credentials are on vivid display as she virtually channels the core persona of British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher. She delivers a brilliant performance as the legendary "Iron Lady" of the film's title. Screenwriter Abi Morgan and Director Phyllida Morgan offer a sensitive look at the life of the first woman to hold that high office in Britain. They begin with scenes of Thatcher in her old age and delicate health.

COSTA MESA — As a dramatic soundtrack played, Killybrooke Elementary School students chopped, stirred and cooked healthy gastronomic masterpieces using the secret ingredient — tomatoes — in hopes of beating out the competition. Team Food Revolution made chili and served it in a hollowed red bell pepper with chili-pepper corn muffins. But it was Team Veggie Monsters that took the top honor by only two points with a whole-grain pasta, marinara sauce and bruschetta for Killybrooke's "Iron Chef"-inspired cooking competition Monday in the school's multipurpose room.

COSTA MESA — After hours of debate, the City Council voted 4 to 1 Tuesday night in favor of a ground lease agreement with a Newport Beach-based real estate company that will finance and operate the Orange County Fairgrounds for the city, if the state Legislature permits Costa Mesa to buy the landmark property from the state. Calling the process flawed, Councilwoman Katrina Foley dissented. The city and its chosen partner, Facilities Management West, still must work out community use and other terms of the $96-million agreement to buy the fairgrounds.

Outfitted in tall white chef hats and green aprons, the Food Fighters faced off against the Blazing Hot Chili Peppers in a cooking showdown Monday at Killybrooke Elementary in Costa Mesa. Sixteen students in grades 4 to 8 participated in the Killybrooke Iron Chef competition, a pilot event sponsored by the school, the Network for a Healthy California and the Newport-Mesa Unified School District's Food Services Department. Students had 45 minutes to create a tasty, healthy dish using a secret ingredient: vegetables.

H aving successfully subsidized world peace, Tony Stark has now become more of a supersized three-ring circus in "Iron Man 2," and that's the crux of this sequel in a nutshell. Aside from nifty special effects, the original film had star Robert Downey Jr.'s sly, offbeat humor at its core. It was more than just the sum of its techno wizardry and explosions — there was a real sense of fun. There is still fun to be found in "IM2" — just few and far between. As Stark wannabe Justin Hammer, Sam Rockwell is stupidly funny.
