Halfway through the year, however, Rory McIlroy is playing second fiddle. Remember the hype over McIlroy going for the career Grand Slam at the Masters? That was three months ago, and it seems like a lot longer. The attention has shifted...

Spieth wins US Open Title, halfway to Grand Slam

UNIVERSITY PLACE, Wash. (AP) -- Jordan Spieth is halfway home to the Grand Slam, a prize only three of the biggest names in modern golf have ever chased. And he still can't believe how he got there. Spieth won the U.S. Open in a heart-stopper Sunday with a turn of events even more wild than the terrain at Chambers Bay. He thought he had it won with a 25-foot birdie putt on the 16th...

Masters champ Jordan Spieth aims for another major title at U.S. Open

  Jordan Spieth was home last week in Dallas when he slipped into his green jacket from Augusta National. It was not a special occasion for the Masters champion. "Just kind of felt like it," he said Monday with a grin. "Why wouldn't I put it on, to be honest with you?" Just don't get the idea that the 21-year-old is content with what already has been a banner year. That runaway...

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...
