Kevin Na has a pre-shot routine longer than a “Godfather” movie, but far less entertaining. The 28-year-old golfer, who leads The Players Championship through three rounds, recognizes how ridiculous his routine is and apologizes for it.
“There’s so much on the line that I just have to sometimes back off,” Na told the media on Saturday. “Or I’ll force myself to take...
That golf is a game that demands controlling dark inner demons as much as a little white ball has never been truer than it was in watching Kevin Na take the third-round lead at The Players on Saturday.
To put it mildly, it's painful watching Na play golf.
In baseball, balks are penalized. But in golf it's merely bad etiquette for...
The only complaint about Matt Kuchar was not winning enough. He picked up a big one Sunday in The Players Championship.
Kuchar avoided the big mistakes that slowed so many other contenders - starting with Kevin Na - and kept out of the water on the TPC Sawgrass at the end. He closed with a 2-under 70 for a two-shot victory.
It was the fourth career win for Kuchar, and his first...
Kevin Na rolled in a 15-foot birdie putt on the final hole Saturday for a 4-under 68 and a one-shot lead at The Players Championship.
For all the waggles and practice swings, and even purposely missing the ball so he can start over, Na pieced together a brilliant round on the TPC Sawgrass. He had one of only three scorecards without a bogey, and the final birdie gave him the lead...
Tiger Woods on Friday played like a man who wasn't going to miss consecutive cuts for the first time in his professional career.
World No. 1 Rory McIlroy played like a man who's still dazed and confused when it comes to architect Pete Dye's idiosyncratic TPC Sawgrass layout.
McIlroy has yet to play the weekend in three trips to The Players and left scratching his head...
English Premiership Championship
Manchester City is poised to win it’s first Barclay’s Premiership title and it’s first league title since 1968! On paper, it is very unlikely they can lose their grasp on the trophy. They face off against the 17th place Queens Park Rangers who are trying to hold a spot in the top division. QPR holds a two point lead on the Bolton Wanderers...
Harris English's errant tee shot on hole #1 in The Players at TPC Sawgrass hit volunteer Denny Meredith of Jacksonville right off the top of the dome yesterday. The ball bounces off his hat like it was made of concrete, must have hurt like a *****.
According to Jacksonville.com, "Meredith never lost consciousness but was transported back to the main First Aid center...
Television cameras and thousands of eyeballs focused on Tiger Woods' right foot as he made his way up the sixth fairway.
No worries, though. It was just a broken shoe.
Woods snapped the eyelet during his tee shot at the par-4 No. 5, called for a backup shoe and made a quick swap following his approach shot on the next hole. He found some rhythm a few minutes later, enough to...
