Bo Van Pelt: From fan to co-leader at Muirfield Village

DUBLIN, Ohio (AP) Bo Van Pelt experienced his first big disappointment in golf at Muirfield Village. ''I remember I tried to get Greg Norman's autograph,'' Van Pelt said. ''He was No. 1 in the world, and I couldn't get it. And I said something not very nice to him. That was my buddies' fault. They said I would say anything, but I did. I was 13, trying to impress. He was the only...

Risk and Reward - RBC Canadian Open

The Travelers Championship - Power Rankings

I’d like to start out talking about the World Cup because, mostly, I’d just like to avoid talking about my picks for the U.S. Open.
