Team USA is entering the Ryder Cup on Friday as a heavy underdog against Team Europe. There is plenty of star power on both sides, but most feel the Europeans have a better shot to win with a squad that is anchored by four of the world’s top six players. Some have also speculated that […]

Graeme McDowell Proves Being a First-Time Dad is Hard
Graeme McDowell is a major champion. He’s won 11 times on the European and PGA Tours and is, hands-down, one of the best players in the world today. But none of that means...
MARANA, Ariz. -- Graeme McDowell figured his luck had run out Friday at the Match Play Championship.
After two remarkable rallies to even reach the third round, McDowell missed a pair of 8-foot putts to fall 2 down with two holes to play against Hunter Mahan, who had lost only four times in 18 matches at the Golf Club of Dove Mountain.

To set the stage for this absurd shot, McDowell, playing in the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship, thins his approach shot from the bunker on the 18th hole and looks destined to hit the...
