Sleepless Levin stuck outside U.S. Open

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- To say Spencer Levin woke up Monday to the bad news that he was the 61st-ranked golfer in the world, one spot shy of automatic qualification for this month's U.S. Open, would not be totally accurate. Levin really didn't sleep much at all. The leader after three rounds at the prestigious Memorial Tournament, Levin struggled over the final nine holes of...

Unlikely leader knows the stakes

DUBLIN, Ohio -- Come along for the ride with Spencer Levin. Buckle up. The 27-year-old Levin held a four-shot lead after 10 holes Saturday at the Memorial Tournament, his big swings and a couple of long-distance chips creating some breathing room between Levin and the player who was then in second place, Tiger Woods. The wild stuff was just beginning, though Levin overcame two...

Spencer Levin Will Not Be Reading This Blog Post

Or anything on the Internet, for that matter. That's because Spencer Levin has the technological desire of a wombat. Asked about the uplifting nature of the masses after Kyle Stanley's collapse at Torrey Pines, Levin said it would be impossible for groups to do the same for him since he looks at technology the same way Phil Mickelson looks at layup yardages. "I'...

Spencer Levin finds a new use for his belly putter

You have to feel for Spencer Levin. Not only did the kid blow a six-shot at the Waste Management Open (it was actually seven at one point during the day), he also suffered this humbling moment on the back nine. After knocking his tee-shot in the Cholla, Levin was forced to use his belly putter to hack back into play -- but not before the bush exacted some revenge by leaving Levin...

Spencer Levin takes Phoenix Open lead

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) -- Spencer Levin took one last drag on his cigarette, stamped it out in the rough and climbed into the bunker behind the 17th green. He set up quickly, took a quick glance at the hole and splashed out.

Trust pays off for Levin at Phoenix Open

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- When Spencer Levin's dad told him Thursday that his practice-range swings looked great, he had a hard time believing it. He was all over the range and didn't feel good heading into the first round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open. His father, Don Levin, who played briefly on the PGA Tour in the 1970s, told him just to trust his swing and he'd...

Levin, Stanley opens with 62s to lead at Torrey
