Greatest Ever: Payne Stewart & the 1999 U.S. Open

In 113 years of the U.S. Open, one of them stands out as the greatest ever. Was it Francis Ouimet winning as an amateur in 1913 for the first time? Nope. How about 1960, when Jack Nicklaus almost became the first amateur to win the U.S. Open since 1933? Ehhh, it’s close, but no. Maybe Tiger on a wounded knee, forcing and then winning an epic Monday playoff against Rocco Mediate...

Johnson determined to get back on the team

(Eds: With AP Photos.) By DOUG FERGUSON AP Golf Writer Dustin Johnson is starting to compile the kind of numbers that are difficult to ignore. Not since Tiger Woods has a player won on the PGA Tour in each of his first seven seasons. To already have eight tour wins before turning 30 puts him in select company that only includes names like Woods, Davis Love III, Phil Mickelson and...

5 best players without a green jacket

One of the most popular labels in golf is the best player to have never won a major, which can be looked at two ways. The bad news is that it means a player has never won a major. The good news is that he's at least thought highly enough to be considered. The best player at Augusta National to have never won the Masters? That stings a little bit more. Just ask Greg Norman...

Mickelson's 60 marvelous, and cruel

Phil Mickelson held his head in horror on the ninth green, his 18th of the day. His 26-foot putt birdie putt for 59 curled around the hole and stayed out. "It's crushing," Mickelson said, "because you don't get that chance very often." David Duval, who shot one of golf's magical 59s, tweeted: "he just got robbed." No one would disagree...
