PLAYERS: Tiger Woods
Heading into the weekend at the Olympic Club out in San Francisco, Calif., 17-year-old Beau Hossler was just excited to be part of the nation's biggest golf event. But as the teen took the course on Friday, sitting at even par for the tournament, he surely didn't expect to take the lead. That's just what Hossler did on Friday afternoon, dropping to minus-2 through 10 holes on the second day of the tournament, before the amateur golfer fell back down to earth and finished the day at a still respectable plus-3, just four back of the lead -- held by...

Fans' bizarre outbursts following Tiger shot

If you aren’t sick of “you da man!” and “get in the hole!” then you don’t watch enough golf. Every shot from off the green on every hole of every tournament, some jerkwad has to be the guy to yell “get in the hole!” It doesn’t work. It never has worked. And it never will work. You friends won’t recognize that it was you on television and the players probably...

Woods falls apart on the weekend

For two rounds, Tiger Woods seemed to be in command in the US Open. Then came a weekend of frustration that ran his winless streak in major championships to four years. Woods threw away his last chance at winning the Open on Sunday with a bogey-bogey-double bogey start that took away any chance of him mounting a charge up the leaderboard at Olympic Club. Woods made some birdies...

Tiger Woods Misses Tap-In Putt, Drops Four Strokes in First Eight Holes at U.S. Open

After Friday's round, it finally felt safe to say that Tiger Woods was 'back,' and that was certainly the buzz around golf. Even other golfers were finally starting to take notice.

Tiger Woods' Status as U.S. Open Favorite Reaffirmed by Rock-Solid First Round at Olympic

The last time the world saw Tiger Woods win a major championship, he beat Rocco Mediate in the summer of 2008 in the U.S. Open at Torrey Pines on essentially one leg for his 14th major, just four shy of Jack Nicklaus' record of 18. Plenty has happened on and off the course in Tiger's life since then, but once again Woods is the favorite to America's golf championship...

Santa Margarita's Hossler takes lead at U.S. Open

SAN FRANCISCO Not even Tiger Woods is immune from losing the U.S. Open lead. Nor is a teenager incapable of holding it. Amateur Beau Hossler who just completed his year in high school used two birdies around the Olympic Clubs turn to reach 2-under par and stand alone atop an anything-goes leaderboard. The 17-year-old Californian broke a tie with former Open champion Jim Furyk...

Teen amateur Hossler believes he can win US Open

Somewhere along The Olympic Club's tight, twisting fairways, 17-year-old Beau Hossler went from thinking he could be the low amateur to believing he could win the whole tournament. Apparently he wasn't the only one. Tiger Woods' agent approached Hossler's dad outside the scorer's room late Saturday afternoon, shook his hand and said, ''This is unbelievable...

Tiger suffers major Saturday meltdown

It's been 48 years since United States Opens finished on Saturdays. But Tiger Woods finished this Open on Saturday. With the eyes of the sporting world upon him, with the debate on whether he's finally back or not poised to swing in his favor, Woods handed Sunday back to LeBron James and Kevin Durant, as much as to Jim Furyk and Graeme McDowell. He suffered a premature...

Chip Kelly hangs with Tiger Woods at Olympic

As fans, I think we all presume that college football coaches have no lives, and spend their off-season’s huddled up in dark film rooms, breaking down tape of future opponents, and ignoring their wives as effortlessly in June as they do in October. At least that’s the vision I have anyway. And for some (yeah, we’re looking at you Nick Saban), it’s probably true, but for...
