Someone keeps pranking Webb Simpson at the U.S. Open

Someone is pranking Webb Simpson at the U.S. Open, and they're doing it 100 percent the right way. According to Simpson, he's been greeted with a different name on his locker each day he shows up at Chambers Bay. And the culprit isn't just taking a piece of tape and scrawling something clever on it with a Sharpie. No, she or he is putting up a brand-new, shiny placard each time....

For a 15-year-old Texan, an early taste of a tough test

UNIVERSITY PLACE, Wash. (AP) He wasn't old enough to drive a car and could barely see over the steering wheel, anyway. The 15-year-old was devoted to golf, and even though he had never so much as entered a USGA event, he tried to qualify for the U.S. Open to see how his game stacked up. Two great rounds later, he was playing in his first major championship. ''I never expected myself...

All eyes on 15-year-old Cole Hammer at U.S. Open

UNIVERSITY PLACE, Wash. – Beau Hossler, the 20-year-old incoming junior at Texas, will be playing in his third U.S. Open this week. Simply amazing. But even he cracked a joke when introducing the latest teen sensation, 15-year-old Cole Hammer, to a friend on the Chambers Bay practice range. “Cole’s going to be Class of 2028 or something like that,” Hossler said, a smile...

USGA's Davis calls reaction to his warning about Chambers Bay 'overblown'

You might recall USGA executive director Mike Davis issuing a stern warning to golfers about their preparation for this year's U.S. Open at Chambers Bay. While hosting a preview of the course earlier this month, Davis cautioned that even the best golfers will have little chance unless they arrive early and play often. "The idea of coming in and playing two practice rounds and having...

Players laugh at Mike Davis' key to success at Chambers Bay

USGA Executive Director Mike Davis stirred the pot on Tour with his comments on Chambers Bay and the unique challenges the players will face during this year's U.S. Open. Exclusive from typical U.S. Open courses that challenge players with narrow fairways, thick rough, and firm greens, Chambers Bay takes on more of a links course feel, whose wide, dry fairways and severe undulations...

Mike Davis hasn't caused this much consternation since he spoke at a PGA Tour players meeting about the evils of the long putter. Only this time, he was extolling the virtues of Chambers Bay.

Mickelson sees results, within 3 shots of Wells Fargo lead
