Quirky approach makes U.S. Am champ DeChambeau captivating

OLYMPIA FIELDS, Ill. — In 1965, a young kid with tons of power and plenty of potential won a well-known golf tournament in Georgia by a then-tournament record nine shots at just 25-years-old.

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...

Woods still chasing Nicklaus despite 7-year major drought

ST. ANDREWS, Scotland (AP) Tiger Woods is still gunning for Jack Nicklaus' record. Despite a slump that has sent him plummeting to No. 241 in the world golf rankings, Woods remains confident that he can win at least four more majors in his career. Woods comes into the British Open with 14 major titles on his resume, but his last victory in one of golf's biggest events came at the...

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

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 talks Tiger, but questions change to what's wrong

DUBLIN, Ohio (AP) 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 know. Woods might not, either. Nicklaus...
