SAN FRANCISCO (AP) Rory McIlroy ran off three straight birdies to force overtime and outlast an old foe in the Match Play Championship, a performance that could be expected from the No. 1 player in the world.

Match Play: Westwood beats Spieth; Grace survives playoff

Power Rankings - The Masters

View image | gettyimages.com There's nothing quite like The Masters in sports. Every great game has a theater of wonder, an event that, when dissolved down to its finest elements, is everything of which players dream. Those barest elements are available in the championships of the world's pastimes but few provide the same dramatic back drop, year in and year out, on which to paint...

Power Rankings - Shell Houston Open

The Masters is almost here and I, for one, am both excited and exasperated. Right now, there is about as far from a clear favorite as can be, with just one repeat winner this year and several of the biggest names in the sport have failed to display much in the way of brilliance. I'll walk you through a few here, so you can see what I'm saying. Justin Rose, a veritable stallion among...

Innisbrook makes up for bad spot on schedule for Valspar Championship

What better time is there to make my return than 11 official PGA tournaments into the 2014-2015 season? Well, 11 tournaments ago would have been a good spot, but my father always told me, "Son, clean up your room." No. Wait.
