soccer • Mexico has yet another coach — and a last chance to reach next year's World Cup in Brazil. El Tri, which last missed a World Cup in 1990, opens a two-game playoff Wednesday in Mexico City against New Zealand, with the winner earning a World Cup berth.

The second leg is Nov. 20 in Wellington, New Zealand. Mexico will try to pile up the goals in hopes of an overwhelming advantage in the second game. New Zealand figures to defend heavily Wednesday and take its chances at home.

Mexico is scrambling to reach Brazil, bringing in coach Miguel Herrera to handle the playoff in the latest of a series of four coaching changes. Herrera, the coach of the Mexican club America, has recruited 10 players from America and has overlooked the country's Europe-based players, like Manchester United's Javier Hernandez.

Bayne's younger sister, Sarah, also has multiple sclerosis.

The Champions Tour's Kenny Perry missed a 7-foot birdie putt on the par-4 18th hole that would have sent the match into a playoff.
