After the United States lost the Ryder Cup in October at Medinah Country Club, for the seventh time in nine matches, I called Tom Watson.

And it possibly happened at the same time Uchitel was hooking up with Woods. Even though this happened before her relationship with Dingman, it grosses out Nordegren. Especially since she found...
(Eds: With AP Photos.) By DOUG FERGUSON AP Golf Writer Remember this before saluting PGA of America officials for going ''outside the box'' when they selected Tom Watson as the next Ryder Cup captain.
They're the ones who built the box in the first place.
With due respect to Larry Nelson, who has more reason than ever to believe he will never be a captain, and...
ESPN’s Rob Parker came out today and stated that he wants to know if Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III is “a brother or a cornball brother.”
“I want to find about him,” Parker said. “I don’t know because I keep hearing these things. We all know he has a white fiancee. Then there was all this talk about he’s a Republican, which there’s no information at all...
