Donald, Grace share 1st-round lead at RBC Heritage

Fri, 15 Apr 2016 04:20:02 GMT

Missing the Masters made Luke Donald's blood boil. The former world No. 1 channeled that anger to shoot his best round since January, a 5-under 66 at the RBC Heritage that left the Englishman tied with Branden Grace for the first-round lead Thursday. The two were a stroke ahead of four players,...

Fri, 15 Apr 2016 00:38:00 GMT

Let's be honest: Who doesn't like to peek at the occasional train-wreck?

We live in a rubber-necking society in cyberspace, where anyone is a tweet or misstep away from infamy. Cue recent implosions involving Jordan Spieth and Johnny Manziel.

Spieth got the yips on the 12th hole and shot his way...

Wed, 13 Apr 2016 16:40:00 GMT

Add Vijay Singh's name to a small but potentially growing list of pro golfers who will skip their sport's Olympic return in Rio de Janeiro this summer.

The PGA Tour veteran has informed officials in his native Fiji that — for a variety of reasons — he has changed his mind about competing in Brazil.

Jordan Spieth's Masters collapse wasn't good for him, but might be good for golf

Wed, 13 Apr 2016 00:04:00 GMT

Because his parents graduated from Saucon Valley High School and he has family still living in this area, Jordan Spieth has become our local connection to big-time golf in the same way that Taylor Swift is Berks County's link to pop culture and music.

Not many of us knew about him until last year...

Jordan Spieth is still learning to control his thoughts and emotions

Tue, 12 Apr 2016 00:30:00 GMT

Take-aways from the 80th Masters …

Jordan Spieth is a fascinating psychological specimen.

To his everlasting credit and the joy of sportswriters everywhere, he doesn't seem to have a pause button from his brain to his mouth. He feels what he says and says what he feels, and we should all hope that...

Mon, 11 Apr 2016 23:03:31 GMT

Jordan Spieth's infamous collapse in the final round of the Masters on Sunday brings to mind so many others in the world of sports that we thought we'd bring the top 15 others to you just for fun.

Spieth had a five-stroke lead when he came to the 10th hole on Sunday. But two straight bogeys followed...

Jordan Spieth gets words of encouragement from Jack Nicklaus, Stephen Curry after Masters collapse

Mon, 11 Apr 2016 15:35:00 GMT

Jordan Spieth clearly wasn't doing too well following Sunday's final round of the Masters at Augusta National. The 2015 tournament champion lost his balance and nearly fell while putting the green jacket on this year's winner, Danny Willett.

"As you can imagine, I can't think of anybody else who...

Danny Willett the beneficiary of Jordan Spieth's Masters collapse

Mon, 11 Apr 2016 11:45:00 GMT

Danny Willett was Nick Faldo. Jordan Spieth was Greg Norman.

The comparisons are as inevitable as they obvious. Just as mind-bending too.

The 80th Masters week began with the memories of Jack Nicklaus' stirring victory at Augusta National 30 years ago, but there was another anniversary less celebrated,...

Trying to play it safe, Jordan Spieth plays his way into a historic collapse at the Masters

Mon, 11 Apr 2016 03:45:00 GMT

It was chilly enough to make bare knees knock. Parkas were buttoned. Blankets were spread. Shadows rode in on the breeze.

"I said, 'Buddy, it looks like we're collapsing,'" said Jordan Spieth.

A car alarm blared in the distance. Deep groans echoed off the pines. Sunburned men rattled their empty...

The torture of Jordan Spieth's Masters collapse may live forever

Mon, 11 Apr 2016 02:14:00 GMT

Jordan Spieth's walk up the 18th hole took 10 minutes, 9 seconds. Tee to green. A drive, an approach, two putts and a textbook par.

But within the longest, cruelest 465-yard uphill climb of his life, the emptiness was still carving its way through.

Somehow, Spieth's final hole at Augusta National...

A Norman-esque collapse leaves Jordan Spieth reeling

Mon, 11 Apr 2016 01:55:00 GMT

He crouched. He wiped his putter blade. Took his cross-handed grip. Forward-pressed. Draino.

This was Jordan Spieth on the ninth green Sunday. His 21-foot birdie gave him a five-shot lead, seeming to make a mockery of the old line about the Masters not beginning until the back nine Sunday.

"Spieth...

Louis Oosthuizen's trick-shot hole in one thrills gallery at 16

Mon, 11 Apr 2016 00:39:00 GMT

Shane Lowry and Davis Love III had already made holes-in-one at the 181-yard 16th hole Sunday afternoon at the Masters. The pin, in its traditional final-round location, was accessible. The distance was favorable. And, well, Lowry made his ace with a smooth-swing 8-iron. Two groups later Love matched...

Danny Willett wins Masters after Jordan Spieth unravels on back 9

Sun, 10 Apr 2016 23:13:00 GMT

Danny Willett in a green jacket was hard to believe considering he wasn't even sure he could play the Masters two weeks ago.

No one was more stunned than Jordan Spieth.

Nine holes away from another wire-to-wire victory, the defending Masters champion threw it away Sunday with a collapse around...

One for the ages: At 58, Langer is a Masters contender

Sun, 10 Apr 2016 17:40:02 GMT

On the 30th anniversary of Jack Nicklaus' final Masters victory, another ageless blond is making a run at the green jacket. This one would be even more remarkable. Fifty-eight-year-old Bernhard Langer used all his wits and guile to shoot a 2-under 70 on another challenging day at Augusta National,...

Masters notes: Rory McIlroy can't make it happen in a 77

Sun, 10 Apr 2016 03:10:00 GMT

Rory McIlroy wasn't outwardly rooting for Jordan Spieth's late troubles Saturday at the Masters. But neither was he mourning them.

After an awful day in which he shot five-over-par 77 in the premier last pairing with Spieth, McIlroy took solace in Spieth's bogey-double-bogey finish that put the...

Jordan Spieth leads entering Masters final round, but confidence may be shaken

Sun, 10 Apr 2016 01:54:00 GMT

As the record-setting leader of the Masters on Saturday evening, Jordan Spieth looked anything but confident or happy.

"Mixed feelings," he admitted rather glumly.

In the span of a half-hour, near sunset at Augusta National, Spieth's march toward possibly pulling on the green jacket for a second...

Scenes from the Masters: Wind takes center stage at Augusta

Sun, 10 Apr 2016 01:24:00 GMT

There has been plenty of movement Saturday during the third round of the Masters at Augusta National. The leaderboard is in a state of constant flux. The wind continues to dominate. And players are searching for any kind of stability they can find. Here's a look at some of Saturday's scenes and...

What's the skinny on Masters first-timer Smylie Kaufman?

Sun, 10 Apr 2016 00:58:00 GMT

Need some background on Smylie Kaufman, who will play in Sunday's final pairing with Jordan Spieth? Well, he's 24, still lives with his parents and drives a 2008 Nissan Murano. And after 54 holes in his first Masters, he's 2 under par, one of only four players in red figures.

Kaufman qualified...

A Masters victory for Bernhard Langer would be 'one for the old guys'

Sun, 10 Apr 2016 00:37:00 GMT

His hair remains perfect, his belly slim. His wrinkles reveal signs of aging, sure, but Bernhard Langer's body still produces goosebumps at just the right moments.

One of those came Saturday when the Masters fans gave him a standing ovation on No. 18, a tribute to a man besting competitors half...

Mystery man Jeff Knox makes Masters fairy tale an annual reality

Sun, 10 Apr 2016 00:28:00 GMT

Must be nice to be Jeff Knox, to wake up on a Saturday morning, make the 3-mile drive from your Georgia home to your local golf club and head to No. 1 for your 9:50 a.m. tee time.

Only it's Augusta National. It's the third round of the Masters. And that lefty sauntering up to the tee box beside...
