EDISON, N.J. (AP) As golf has become more global and the wealth of the PGA Tour has made it the premier destination, there has been grumbling over the years that it has become easier for international players to earn a PGA Tour card through world rankings that get them into the biggest events.

It was something else.” So exhilarating was the play by Grace and Kaymer in Saturday’s third...

U.S. Open Greens At Chambers Bay In Rough Shape Before Round 1 (Photo)

The U.S. Open is the toughest major championship in golf. The USGA does its best to make the course incredibly difficult to shoot par.

This year’s U.S. Open starts Thursday at Chambers Bay in Washington. Judging by the early condition of the greens...
