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.
