Just getting to US Open a challenge

Look up and down the entry list, and you'll find curiosities with players when it comes to the US Open. But nothing confounds quite like the overall record of Luke Donald and Zach Johnson.

Gambling at Golf has Never Been So Easy

  A fantasy sports geek, I’ve pretty much proven I’ll do fantasy anything. Baseball, football, basketball, hockey, NASCAR, and yes, even soccer, both English Premier League and MLS. It’s an infectious disease. This year, I was invited to participate in a weekly golf pool where you pick one golfer a week with standings based on accrued prize money. You can only pick a golfer...

The bloom is off Augusta National

Something is missing from the Masters this year, a tradition that ranks right up there with Amen Corner, endless roars on Sunday afternoon and the winner's green jacket. Color.
