PGA Tour looking at switching 9s at East Lake

ATLANTA (AP) Hal Sutton was in a bunker so deep that only his hat could be seen. He got up-and-down for par on the 18th hole, then won a playoff by hitting a 4-wood to 6 feet for birdie on the 244-yard closing hole. That was the first Tour Championship at East Lake in 1998. It's not often that close. Jordan Spieth became the ninth player in the last 12 years at East Lake to win...

Day wins The Barclays in another runaway

EDISON, N.J. (AP) Jason Day, so poor as a kid that he shopped at a store where he stuffed as much used clothing as he could into a bag for $5, is trying not to think about the potential of a $10 million bonus for winning the FedEx Cup. That's still four weeks away. Day, so cocksure as a teenager that he talked about being No. 1 even before he was a PGA Tour rookie, is trying to...

''It's golf,'' Watson said Thursday after a 5-under 65 for a four-way tie for the lead with Tony Finau, Spencer Levin and Camilo Villegas. ''It's Atlanta that we are all...

Watson on 65: I'm so dumb, I'm not going to think about it

By David Kenyon The first tournament of the PGA Tour’s FedEx Cup playoffs teed off on Thursday, and Bubba Watson is off to a respectable start at The Barclays. But according to ESPN’s Jason Sebel, Watson said he won’t have many thoughts about the five-under-par 65 that has him atop the leaderboard, and that "I'm so dumb, I'm not going to think about it."

The Latest: 3rd round of US Open begins at Chambers Bay

UNIVERSITY PLACE, Wash. (AP) The latest from the U.S. Open (all times local): 8 a.m. Nick Hardy began the third round of the U.S. Open on Saturday about 10 hours after finishing his second, and one has to wonder if he got any sleep at all. He was probably busy receiving ''thank-you'' text messages. Hardy made bogey as the sun was setting over Chambers Bay, and that moved the cut...

Movers and Losers - The Barclays

Ouch. That's all I have to say about my performance last week. If I could put myself in the column below under "Losers" that'd be ideal, as I dropped a number of ranks in my effort to bottle lightening and jump over those picking the chalk. Speaking of making the cut, here's how important it is to be a successful in my rankings: of the Top-15 for my power rankings, there are a total...
