Golf: This Game Makes No Sense

For the second consecutive week on the PGA Tour, a player that either missed the cut or didn’t finish in the top 50 in the previous tournament won the next tournament. One week ago, it was Tiger Woods that amazed everyone at the Farmers Insurance Open after missing the cut the previous week in Abu Dhabi.

Mickelson goes wire to wire for win

Phil Mickelson completed a wire-to-wire victory in the Phoenix Open, missing another chance to make history in a dominating week at TPC Scottsdale.

Golfer James Hahn celebrated a birdie putt on the 16th hole during his final round at the 2013 Waste Management Phoenix Open by doing some of the Gangnam Style dance.

How to put a quick end to slow play

Tiger Woods isn't in the field this week at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am. And it isn't because last year he was embarrassed by eventual champion Phil Mickelson in a final-round showdown. The reasons for Woods' absence are many -- he usually plays only once in California to start his season, and this year it was Torrey Pines, where he won -- but what doesn...

The buzz in golf not all good

(Eds: With AP Photos.) By DOUG FERGUSON AP Golf Writer What should be happy times for golf is being overshadowed by off-course controversy. Tiger Woods won for the 75th time on the PGA Tour and set a record with his eighth win at Torrey Pines.
