Par Two

Planning a wedding could be good for your golf game. From the Miami Herald:

PALM BEACH GARDENS - How often do you see this happen? Aaron Baddeley is preoccupied with wedding plans, and his golf game is improving.

The young Aussie continued his recent run of good play Thursday with a 4-under-par 68, finding himself tied for fourth after one round of the Honda Classic.

That followed a sixth-place finish in Tucson, which was preceded by placing seventh at the Nissan Open. Seven of his past eight rounds have been in the 60s.

Baddeley, 23, weds Richelle Robbins in 36 days. ''It's been easy,'' he said. ''When you're off the golf course, you're not thinking about [golf],'' Baddeley said. ``You're trying to get wedding stuff done. I'm talking to Richelle and that's what you do.

``When you're off the course you don't have to worry about it, going through premarital counseling and getting plans ready. It's been easy.''

Robbins stayed in Arizona this week, finalizing some of the details. Baddeley later acknowledged there's not all that much left for him to take care of.

''Richelle's got the list, ticking things off the list,'' he said. ``I went through the list, and there was like one thing I could do.''

Show up?

''Show up and organize transportation,'' he said. ``I can do that.''
