Rick Reilly Compares Martin Kaymer’s U.S Open Performance To Nazi Germany

There are some things you’re probably better off not doing. Comparing just about anything that happens in sports to an invasion is probably one of those things.

Ken Duke Makes Incredible Par Save After Intentional Putt Into Bunker (Video)

Ken Duke hit a poor tee shot on the ninth hole at Pinehurst on Friday during the second round of the U.S. Open.
