Spieth arrives at St. Andrews, resuming Grand Slam quest

ST. ANDREWS, Scotland (AP) There was no escaping Jordan Spieth even before he arrived Monday at St. Andrews to resume his pursuit of the Grand Slam. Behind the practice range, one British television network talked to any player willing to stop.

U.S. Open's most important figure, Mike Davis, isn't even playing

  Tiger Woods speaks of him in reverential tones. No one has received more attention in the months leading up to the U.S. Open at Chambers Bay, mainly because of his reputation in this major over the last decade. His name is Mike Davis, and he's not even playing. Davis is the executive director of the USGA, the man largely responsible for U.S. Open coming to a golf course unlike...

U.S. Open alternate's clubs confiscated during practice round

If you're a golfer, you're used to obscure rules. But it's a gentlemen's game of integrity, and rules are rules nonetheless. Clint Rice found this out the hard way on Tuesday at Chambers Bay.

The par-5 13th at Augusta: A beauty can be a real beast

AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) The beauty of the 13th hole at Augusta National goes beyond the estimated 1,600 azalea bushes that are bursting with blooms down the left side and behind the green of the best little par 5 in golf. It is the ultimate risk-and-reward hole, pleasing to play until one mistake from the tee, from the fairway, even from the green. Curtis Strange once hit into the tributary...

Drought contributes to clever, cruel 10th hole at Riviera

PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. (AP) No one summed up the 10th hole at Riviera as well as Ryo Ishikawa of Japan. ''Fun hole to watch. Tough to play,'' he said during the opening round of the Northern Trust Open. What many consider to be the best little par 4 in America - and among the best in the world - received even more attention last week at Riviera when it went from being clever to...

On PGA Tour, a hot stretch can mean big bucks

HONOLULU (AP) The advice has been passed along for decades on the PGA Tour, and Matt Kuchar believes it has merit. He just doesn't like it. Call it the 80-20 equation. ''I remember coming out and guys telling me you're going to make 80 percent of your money in 20 percent of your starts,'' Kuchar said. ''The idea was basically you're going to get hot a couple of times, and that's...

Kapalua a test unlike any other on the PGA Tour

KAPALUA, Hawaii (AP) The reward for winning on the PGA Tour is a trip to the west tip of Maui for the Hyundai Tournament of Champions, where the course was built on the side of a mountain, overlooks the ocean and evokes a response from players that is different from other weeks. ''My first reaction was, `Do we get a cart for the week?''' Canadian Open champion Tim Clark said. J...
