2016 PGA Tour schedule will feature busy summer stretch

We’re not even through the summer of ’15, but you’ll excuse us for drifting forward to the summer of ’16. Hey, it’s golf. It’s all about course-management and planning the next shot, right? Anyway, you probably have heard that next summer will be a jam-packed slate thanks to accommodations made by golf’s return to the Olympic Games for the first time since 1904, and...

No guarantees Spieth will ever get another chance

ST. ANDREWS, Scotland (AP) The odds of a Grand Slam already were long simply because no one had ever swept the four professional majors in one year. If that's the best measure, this sobering piece of history might make Jordan Spieth feel even worse. No one ever got another chance. Dating to 1960, when Arnold Palmer hatched the modern version of the Grand Slam on his way to St. Andrews...

Palmer bids graceful goodbye to St. Andrews at British Open

ST. ANDREWS, Scotland — For so much of Wednesday the atmosphere at the 144th British Open, so festive, had been overmatched by the weather, so cruel. Cold and raw, rain pelting down, then subsiding to a steady mist, only to stream down again. Gray one moment, even more gray the next, it was a day devoid of color, any semblance of enthusiasm, and certainly thrills. To hold out any...

AP WAS THERE: 55 years ago, Alliss shoots 66 and sets record

EDITOR'S NOTE: Arnold Palmer first played the British Open in 1960, and it was on his journey to St. Andrews that he proposed the modern concept of the Grand Slam - winning all four professional majors in the same year. It was a different era. Even though Palmer had won the Masters and U.S. Open, he still had to go through 36 holes of qualifying to get into the British Open. Everyone...

Odds are something odd will happen to Jordan Spieth

ST. ANDREWS, Scotland (AP) Something has to go wrong for Jordan Spieth at the British Open because it always does. That was the case for Arnold Palmer when he was on the wrong end of history at St. Andrews in 1960. And for Jack Nicklaus, who could only wish he had packed his own pillow along with his golf clubs on the way to Muirfield in 1972. And for Tiger Woods, whose fiercest...

Spieth arrives at St. Andrews, resuming Grand Slam quest

ST. ANDREWS, Scotland (AP) There was no escaping Jordan Spieth even before he arrived Monday at St. Andrews to resume his pursuit of the Grand Slam. Behind the practice range, one British television network talked to any player willing to stop. After a few gratuitous questions about the weather (cool and cloudy) and the Old Course (magnificent shape), the reporter got to the point...

Spieth a young man on cusp of history at St. Andrews

Arnold Palmer proposed it. Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods pursued it. Those are the three biggest names in golf over the last half-century, combining for 214 wins on the PGA Tour and 39 majors. They all came to Scotland - Palmer at St. Andrews, Nicklaus and Woods at Muirfield - with hopes of a Grand Slam, the holy grail in golf. They all failed. The next opportunity falls to a 21...

Along for the ride on Watson's farewell at St. Andrews

This was one time Luke Donald didn't mind taking 45 minutes to play a 357-yard hole. He was on the 18th hole at St. Andrews, and the company he kept that Friday afternoon in 2005 could not have been better. Donald played with Tom Watson and Jack Nicklaus, giving him an unobstructed view for the farewell of golf's greatest champion. Not only was it the final round for Nicklaus at...

Xarelto brings in big name celebrities to sell medicine

I never thought I’d get excited about a blood-thinner, but this Xarelto commercial is a tour de force of manliness I just can’t ignore. The ad features Kevin Nealon, Brian Vickers, and Arnold Palmer who at first glance are an unlikely trio. My theory is that the combination of Nealon (a big name comedian from yesteryear) Vickers (a NASCAR driver), and Arnold Palmer (famous old...
