Power Rankings - RBC Canadian Open

View image | gettyimages.com There's not much I can write that will touch upon the depth of the 2015 Open Championship at St. Andrews. The sheer volume of compelling story lines could, alone, fill a book. I will say this, St. Andrews provided yet another reason why its grounds are so revered amongst those who play the game. With howling winds, torrential downpours and perfect weather...

Tom Watson on the Masters: 'The only regret I have is that it's the end'

  Tom Watson is filled with all sorts of conflicting emotions. He's melancholy that such a big part of his life is winding down, yet there's an immense sense of pride in what he's accomplished. He's realistic that it's the right time to step away, but he can still flash that ol' competitive streak when anyone suggests this is nothing more than a nostalgic farewell at the home of...

AP WAS THERE: 43 years ago, Trevino ends a Grand Slam dream

EDITOR'S NOTE: Jack Nicklaus had never trailed in any round on his way to winning the Masters and U.S. Open in 1972, and the British Open was played that year at Muirfield, where Nicklaus had won his first claret jug six years earlier. He woke up Monday morning of Open week with a stiff neck, which restricted his swing. Playing cautiously, he stayed in range of the leaders until...

Spieth a young man on cusp of history at St. Andrews

Arnold Palmer proposed it. Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods pursued it. Those are the three biggest names in golf over the last half-century, combining for 214 wins on the PGA Tour and 39 majors. They all came to Scotland - Palmer at St. Andrews, Nicklaus and Woods at Muirfield - with hopes of a Grand Slam, the holy grail in golf. They all failed. The next opportunity falls to a 21...

Along for the ride on Watson's farewell at St. Andrews

This was one time Luke Donald didn't mind taking 45 minutes to play a 357-yard hole. He was on the 18th hole at St. Andrews, and the company he kept that Friday afternoon in 2005 could not have been better. Donald played with Tom Watson and Jack Nicklaus, giving him an unobstructed view for the farewell of golf's greatest champion. Not only was it the final round for Nicklaus at...

Tiger's motivation might not be what we thought it was

Eighteen. It’s the number most associated with Tiger Woods. The legend goes that as a boy, Woods pinned a newspaper cutout of Jack Nicklaus’ achievements on his bedroom wall and vowed one day not only to scale Mount Nicklaus but eclipse those 18 majors. It is a compelling narrative; one that’s captivated us since he changed golf with that groundbreaking 1997 Masters victory...

Nicklaus, Irwin: Quit whining about Chambers & just win Open

Forty-one years later, it remains the benchmark by which demanding tests of golf are held, and Hale Irwin won't dispute that winning the U.S. Open at Winged Foot in 1974 was grueling work. It's just that in one respect there was an ease to it. "By Tuesday, 70 percent of the field had given up," Irwin said. "I said to myself: All I have to do is beat 30 percent." So infamously tough...

Jack Nicklaus Can’t Relate To Tiger Woods And Doesn’t Want To, Either

DUBLIN, Ohio — Jack Nicklaus gets asked more about Tiger Woods than he ever did about the golf ball. The only difference is the nature of the question. For the longest time, it used to be, “Do you think Tiger will break your record in the majors?” Now it has become, “What’s wrong with Tiger?” The answer is the same. Nicklaus really doesn’t...

Jack Nicklaus: 'I think I underachieved all my life'

DUBLIN, Ohio --€“ When Jack Nicklaus speaks, the golf industry listens. On Wednesday, the Memorial Tournament host talked about his career and how he basically "underachieved" in a career during which he won 18 major championships among 73 career Tour titles. Shocking?

Well, well, well.  Things are getting very interesting heading into the U.S. Open at Chambers Bay aren't they? We can't wait to see whether Jordan Spieth can win his second straight major.
