McIlroy lasts only 2 days in American return

PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. (AP) As far as star power goes, the PGA Tour is like a fireworks show in the rain. The Phoenix Open was more high-charged than ever this year with the Super Bowl in town and Tiger Woods back to golf. Except that Woods was on his way home after two days and a career-high 82 to miss the cut by 12 shots. A week later, Woods was gone after 11 holes and glutes...

McIlroy gets off to a wind-blown start at Honda

PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. (AP) Rory McIlroy is playing so well that he can easily manage a smile even on the bad days. One of those occasions came Thursday on his way to the 15th tee at the Honda Classic.

Rory McIlroy trails Jim Herman by 8 shots in Honda Classic

  Playing in America for the first time this year, Rory McIlroy's first shot was a 2-iron out of play. A relentless wind with gusts that approached 35 mph provided a rude welcome to just about everyone Thursday at the Honda Classic except for Jim Herman, who somehow made it around PGA National without a bogey for a 5-under-par 65 and a one-shot lead. McIlroy managed to salvage a...

A homecoming at Honda Classic for Brooks Koepka

PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. (AP) Brooks Koepka played in his hometown PGA Tour a year ago on a sponsor's exemption.

In two years, the 24-year-old Koepka has been on a fast track that has crossed international...

McIlroy looking to keep momentum to the Masters

PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. (AP) Rory McIlroy is on a roll, and he wants to keep it that way. McIlroy is making his PGA Tour season debut this week at the Honda Classic. It's the first time in five months that the world's No. 1 player has competed on American soil, even though this feels like a home game because he lives in south Florida.

Risk and Reward - The Honda Classic

Is it possible that someone like Rory McIlroy could be bad for fantasy golf, the very sport that benefits from the rise of such a superstar? In as volatile a sport as golf, having as near a constant as McIlroy or Tiger Woods in his prime levels the playing field quite a bit between the lay person and the expert because, and this is especially true in non-salary based games, just...

Tiger Woods taking leave of absence: ‘My play, and scores, are not acceptable’

Is This The Greatest, Luckiest Hole-In-One Ever?

As golfers, we talk a lot  about “bad breaks” and “unlucky bounces” and players are forever wondering when the golf gods are going to flip the scales and we’ll cash in all our our “bad bounce” currency for the one that makes it all worth while.  I hate to say it, but I think Richard Green just cashed in all of the golf world’s bad breaks in making this ace on Wednesday...

McIlroy looks untouchable in winning Dubai Desert Classic

Call him "untouchable," "class," "brilliant" or any other superlative of the sort. They all apply to Rory McIlroy, and perhaps spell bad news for the rest of golf.
