Mahan begins long road in the playoffs, with history on side

EDISON, N.J. (AP) Recent history is what gives Hunter Mahan a level of optimism he would not ordinarily have at The Barclays. For the first time in 10 years, he is at risk of ending a PGA Tour season without once finishing in the top three. For the first time in more than six years, Mahan is out of the top 50 in the world ranking. He starts the FedEx Cup playoffs at No. 71, his...

Golf's other Jordan makes strong start at British Open

ST. ANDREWS, Scotland (AP) Turns out there's another 21-year-old American called Jordan to watch out for at the British Open.

Does Rory McIlroy's Match Play win signal he's going on a run of victories?

SAN FRANCISCO -- Only time will tell how posterity will view Rory McIlroy's first WGC-Cadillac Match Play title. Will it be another stepping-stone in a decorated career or just a highlight in a career that was very good, but not great? So far, McIlroy's good play has come in spurts. Recent history shows that when he gets going, he puts together a string of good tournaments. In 2012...

Spieth a popular Masters champion among his fellow pros

AUGUSTA, Ga. -- They likely would have been in the parking lot, loading the car trunk, thoughts turned toward the time off or the next tournament. Only, this was different. This was Jordan Spieth, the kid they have all embraced for his spirit, for his competitive fire, for his down-home dignity. "I enjoy being around him. He's a quality individual," Phil Mickelson said Sunday night...

Risk and Reward - Shell Houston Open

Mickelson among group of big names falling in world rankings

What do Justin Rose, Rickie Fowler, Billy Horschel, Phil Mickelson, Graeme McDowell, Chris Kirk, Hunter Mahan and Jason Dufner all have in common? They started the year with lofty world rankings, but have stumbled out of the gates. Combined, they’ve piled up zero top 10s and 14 missed cuts in 44 starts thus far in 2015.

Risk and Reward - AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am

Who cares about Tiger Woods, Bill Murray is back for the AT&T Pro-Am! I may not ever walk in between the ropes at the Pro-Am, but at least Bill Murray can carry the same flippant attitude I would, so I've got that going for me. Which is nice. According to Golf Magazine, Murray says he carries between a 7 and 11 handicap. Given the source, I'd imagine that's a convenient pun....

Keegan Bradley’s Dilema: Super Bowl Or PGA Tour Victory?

To leave or not to leave — that is the question. It’s not uncommon for a PGA Tour star to leave a tournament in the middle of it for personal reasons.
