PGA Tour: Northern Trust Open Leaderboard

Riviera Country Club outside of Los Angeles, California is proving to be relatively difficult this week, even for the best PGA Tour professionals in the world.

There were plenty of long...

Goosen keeps the lead at Riviera

LOS ANGELES (AP) Retief Goosen made only two pars on the back nine and survived a day of wild shots at Riviera to take a two-shot lead into the final round of the Northern Trust Open. Goosen wasn't sure how his nerves would hold up because he had not been a 36-hole leader in more than four years. Those nerves were tested in his round of 2-under 69.

Goosen takes 1-shot lead into weekend at Riviera

LOS ANGELES (AP) The position is a place Retief Goosen hasn't been in more than four years. The feeling? Probably longer. ''I'm excited,'' Goosen said. Few players are more unflappable than the 46-year-old South African. He wasn't the least bit flustered when he three-putted from 12 feet on the final hole at Southern Hills to blow a chance at winning the 2001 U.S. Open. He just...

Monday finish makes little sense for Tournament of Champions

  The Hyundai Tournament of Champions is the second PGA Tour event that ends on a Monday. The other is the Deutsche Bank Championship, which has ended on Labor Day since its inception in 2003 and it works beautifully with the Boston community. As for Kapalua? The decision to switch to a Monday finish didn't make sense four years ago, and it doesn't make sense now. For sure, the...

The Travelers Championship - Power Rankings

I’d like to start out talking about the World Cup because, mostly, I’d just like to avoid talking about my picks for the U.S. Open. With Pinehurst knocking away Bubba Watson’s shots like Tim Howard breaking up Ghana’s scoring chances, I was left with little in the way of points by Sunday as my other picks slowly faded out of the top 10. This spring has been particularly harsh...
