MATT KUCHAR NEWS

It's not over for top seeds, but it sure feels like it

SAN FRANCISCO — Ian Poulter refused a ride in a van. Instead, he marched in from the 16th green, refusing to speak to any of the assembled media. Matt Kuchar? He playfully bounced a golf ball, but that wasn’t reflective of his mood; he, too, sought the solace of the locker room. Henrik Stenson. Jimmy Walker. Jason Day. Justin Rose. They also joined the march of first-round losers...

New format, same fickle Match Play tournament

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) Rory McIlroy opened with a birdie and followed with 13 straight pars. That's not a card that usually advances in the Match Play Championship, and yet the world's No. 1 player wound up winning in 14 holes. Masters champion Jordan Spieth made seven birdies and had to go 16 holes. And then there was Lee Westwood, who had five bogeys and a double bogey and won his...

Jordan Spieth wins at Match Play; defending champ Jason Day ousted

  Masters champion Jordan Spieth had to play good golf for an easy time Wednesday in the Match Play Championship. Unlike last year, it only meant that he was off to a good start in a tournament that won't have any clarity until players start packing their bags. Spieth made six birdies, including a 7-iron to 4 feet on the par-3 13th for some breathing room, and closed out Mikko Ilonen...

Day brings an edge to Match Play

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) This is one week where Jason Day is not trying to make friends. The Match Play Championship brings out an edge in the 27-year-old Australian, who doesn't lack for confidence in any format and yet seems to crank it up a notch when he only has to worry about the guy he's playing. It worked well for Day a year ago in Arizona when he never trailed over the final 53...

HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. -- Jordan Spieth fixed his game in a hurry. He shot a 9-under 62 Friday to get back in contention at the RBC Heritage.

SI loves to proclaim new eras: First of many covers for Jordan Spieth

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...

Both items are delicious and awesome in their own right, but put the Pecans IN the waffle and holy mother of God is it epic.

Power Rankings - WGC-Cadillac Championship

Like a Lumber Liquidators floor plank, there were few safe picks once the winds and rains started at PGA National. Rory McIlroy, Justin Rose, Dustin Johnson, and more found themselves far afoul of the cut line as their long and high ball flights fell victim to the storm. Struggling, aging stars should take note, though, because Padraig Harrington's victory proves that it is possible...

HONOLULU (AP) Webb Simpson and Matt Kuchar made enough birdies on the back nine Friday to build a little separation and share the lead in the Sony Open. Kuchar played bogey-free in a round of 7-under 63. He lost a chance to add one more birdie when he drove into a fairway bunker and narrowly cleared the lip. Simpson reached the par-5 18th green in two for a two-putt birdie with...

On PGA Tour, a hot stretch can mean big bucks

HONOLULU (AP) The advice has been passed along for decades on the PGA Tour, and Matt Kuchar believes it has merit. He just doesn't like it. Call it the 80-20 equation. ''I remember coming out and guys telling me you're going to make 80 percent of your money in 20 percent of your starts,'' Kuchar said. ''The idea was basically you're going to get hot a couple of times, and that's...

Adam Scott will attempt to win his third Australian Masters title in a row on yet another renowned Melbourne sand-belt course, and with a tryout caddie on his bag.
