Golf halfway through year: Turnover at warp speed

The No. 1 player in golf already has three wins in 2015, including a World Golf Championship, and he has finished in the top 10 at both majors. Halfway through the year, however, Rory McIlroy is playing second fiddle. Remember the hype over McIlroy going for the career Grand Slam at the Masters? That was three months ago, and it seems like a lot longer. The attention has shifted...

Sergio Garcia compares Chambers Bay to NBA Finals with 'no backboard'

It’s been clear Sergio Garcia is not a fan of the Chambers Bay course this week.  After breaking even after his first round, Garcia tweeted that he thinks “a championship of the caliber of (the U.S. Open) deserves better quality green surfaces (than) we have this week."

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.

Nicklaus appears to back USGA's Davis on practice comments

Practice makes perfect, at least according to Jack Nicklaus and USGA executive director Mike Davis. The latter created a stir in April when he warned players to study this year's U.S. Open course at Chambers Bay thoroughly if players wanted a shot at winning.
