Clarke won't change what's working for Europe Ryder Cup team

LONDON, England – Darren Clarke isn't planning to rock the Ryder Cup boat.

Is A Tandem Bike Vs. BMW i8 A Fair Race?

Justin Rose, Paul McGinley, Ian Poulter and Wu Ashun are all in Shanghai playing the European Tour’s BMW Masters. And any event sponsored by BMW gives the automaker yet another opportunity to show off its slick new i8 sports car. So BMW and the European Tour decided to stage a race: the i8 vs. a tandem bike. Seems a bit unfair, no? Well, not when the bike can cut through the course...

Time to look ahead, not behind

NAPA, Calif. (AP) A new PGA Tour season starts Thursday, and it's about time. The last thing American golf needs right now is another idle week to rehash a Ryder Cup loss that is getting overcooked by the minute. It's probably good that Phil Mickelson is not expected to play again until we know which two teams are going to the Super Bowl. To spend a week or more looking back at...
