Canyon Meadows is a hit with the Champions Tour players _ and they'll have to hit it straight to have any chance of winning the inaugural Shaw Charity Classic.
The pose was a familiar one for Jim Furyk _ buckled over as if he'd taken a punch in the gut, barely able to watch the flight of the ball.
The PGA Championship can't be accused of being only in a New York state of mind.
Maybe one reason Tiger Woods isn't that impressed by anyone shooting 59 is that he's already done it.
Fifteen years after winning the British Open at Royal Birkdale, Mark O'Meara will be making a return to the course for the Senior British Open.
Two weeks after enjoying the perks of a U.S. Open champion, from dining with the prime minister to watching the Wimbledon men's final from the Royal Box, Justin Rose led a parade of stars exiting the British Open.

About the only thing Fred Couples and Colin Montgomerie had in common was a golf swing good enough to trust for a lifetime.

"The Open here in 1998 was a dream come true for me. To hold the claret jug here on the 18th green was the icing on the cake of my career," O'Meara said Wednesday, a day before the tournament starts.
