A wide-open weekend at the Valspar Championship

PALM HARBOR, Fla. (AP) Jordan Spieth finished his opening round at the Valspar Championship and figured he had dug a hole. He made double bogey on the third hole, didn't convert enough birdie chances and wound up with a 1-under 70. And then he looked at the rest of the scores and realized he was only four shots behind. ''I thought there was an 8 under out there,'' Spieth when he...

Real hazard: Golfer Hoffman's round interrupted by alligator

The alligator ambled across the third fairway at Innisbrook Friday during the second round of the Valspar Championship. Hoffman, John Senden and Woody Austin wisely decided to wait until the gator finished his journey from one swamp to...

Risk and Reward - Farmers Insurance Open

There's something of a catharsis in coming home from work, nearly setting the house on fire trying to make hot dogs, and sitting down to blather on about fantasy golf. The click of the keyboard distracts just enough from the piercing shrill of the smoke alarm that I can just about hear myself think. I should turn the stove off. Certainly, a more rounded individual would be able to...

Power Rankings - Farmers Insurance Open

What better time is there to make my return than 11 official PGA tournaments into the 2014-2015 season? Well, 11 tournaments ago would have been a good spot, but my father always told me, "Son, clean up your room." No. Wait. Maybe it was something closer to "the best time to plant a tree is 30 years ago. The next best time is now." That sounds more like it, even if he stole if from...

Risk and Reward - Quicken Loans National

I'm going to take a bite out of the field for the Quicken Loans National to give you an idea of what this weekend might taste like. Too soon for a Luis Suarez joke? My apologies. But picking players for fantasy golf can be a little bit like picking teams to win at the World Cup. There's your established players, the talent that has been playing hot and should be expected to win,...

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. With Pinehurst knocking away Bubba Watson’s shots like Tim Howard breaking up Ghana’s scoring chances, I was left with little in the way of points by Sunday as my other picks slowly faded out of the top 10. This spring has been particularly harsh...
