Europe contemplating change in golf membership policy

Typically, being a member of the two largest tours in golf requires a top 50 world ranking. That effectively assures the player of getting into the four majors and four World Golf Championships, which would be more than half of the minimum starts...

ON THE TEE: Most compelling race in Boston at the bottom

NORTON, Mass. (AP) For at least one day, the battle at the bottom was more compelling than the battle for No. 1 at the Deutsche Bank Championship. Whoever lands at No. 1 in the world ranking - Rory McIlroy, Jordan Spieth or Jason Day - won't be decided until after the traditional Labor Day finish at the TPC Boston. And even after the good (Day shot 68), pretty good (McIlroy shot...

The race for $10 million gets under way at Plainfield

EDISON, N.J. (AP) The points are slightly different for the FedEx Cup playoffs. The principle remains unchanged. For those who narrowly got into the top 125 to qualify for golf's ultimate bonus series, it's time to play well or go home. That applies to players such as Lee Westwood and Jason Dufner, Stewart Cink and Luke Donald, and possibly Adam Scott. Those with mediocre seasons...

RBC Canadian Open Preview

Pick to Win:Brooks Koepka (22/1): This is a course with four par 5s, where getting a lot of par breakers will be crucial for a successful week. Those are two things Koepka excels at: he ranks sixth on tour in Par 5 Scoring Average, and 10th in Parbreakers. The new greens should be no problem for Koepka, who is ninth in Strokes Gained: Putting. The par 5s should be reachable for...

Along for the ride on Watson's farewell at St. Andrews

This was one time Luke Donald didn't mind taking 45 minutes to play a 357-yard hole.

Donald played with Tom Watson and Jack Nicklaus, giving him an unobstructed view for the farewell of golf's greatest champion. Not only was it the final round for Nicklaus at...
