U.S. Open players lost figuratively, literally in practice at Chambers Bay

  Robert Streb walked off the third green at Chambers Bay, looked both directions and headed left down a dirt path toward Puget Sound. Wrong way. He walked back up the hill and stood in front of a large sign that showed a map of the course, arms crossed as he tried to figure out one of the many mysteries about this U.S. course. In this case, it was a simple question -- where was...

Does Rory McIlroy's Match Play win signal he's going on a run of victories?

Day brings an edge to Match Play

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) This is one week where Jason Day is not trying to make friends.

It worked well for Day a year ago in Arizona when he never trailed over the final 53...

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...
