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...

James Hahn finds no substitute for desire and hard work

James Hahn wins a playoff at Riviera for 1st PGA Tour title

James Hahn wins in playoff at Riviera...now do you know him?

James Hahn's professional golf career was stalling so much eight years ago that he got a side gig as a salon shoe salesman at Nordstrom. He once had just $200 to his name, which isn't nearly enough to buy a pair of those Jimmy Choo shoes or other high-end kicks he said he was so good at selling. He was in Edmonton on the Canadian Tour and didn't have enough money to pay his caddie...

One year from now, Simpson won't be able to play with the belly putter he has used since 2004 because...
