6 a.m. O.J. Simpson tees off 19 minutes after sunrise at the Riviera Country Club, a tony, old-money retreat studded with eucalyptus trees not far from his Brentwood home. One member of his foursome, movie producer Craig Baumgarten, 45, botches a shot and irritably blames Simpson, who becomes angry. But the tension quickly subsides. "There was never a moment when we thought they'd come to blows," says one member of the foursome. "We laughed about it later." Afterward, the golfers have lunch, then settle into the card room of the Spanish-style clubhouse to play gin rummy.
