Risk and Reward - RBC Canadian Open

I've just noticed that I don't have any Canadians in my Power Rankings. I didn't intentionally do this, and it wasn't meant as a slight toward the United States' northern neighbors, but there just weren't any playing well enough statistically to justify a place. To be fair, no Canadian has won the Canadian Open for the last sixty years. That's sixty, with...

Donald Trump Rips ‘Horrible Look’ of Pinehurst No. 2

The course got great reviews from players, with most of them loving the different look for the championship.One man was not a fan...

Fan Swipes Luke Donald’s Golf Ball

The newly-redesigned course at Doral is playing tough.  Really tough.  The scoring average for the second round Friday was 76, a full four strokes above par.  Only three rounds were under-par Friday and an absurd number of golf balls found the water…113 in all.  For former world No. 1 Luke Donald, he had to deal with more than just the course en route to his 10-over 82 Friday...

Luke Donald’s ball was picked up by a volunteer at the WGC Cadillac Championship

This is not a joke! A volunteer at the WGC Cadillac Championship picked up a shot hit by Luke Donald.

I mean come on people, this doesn’t take a genius to figure out...

WATCH: Chick Walks Away With Luke Donald’s Ball, Gets Caught

Well, I guess this girl didn't get the memo that it’s golf and not baseball where a fan keeps a home run. If a player hits a shot and if it goes near the fans then the fans must make room for the player to hit their next shot. Instead, this fan decides to take the ball and walk away but then returns once an official spots her in the act. At least she was a good sport about...
