Tiger Woods, looking to break his drought of 17 majors without a title, will tee off in the 8:35 a.m. group Thursday, playing alongside Davis Love III and Keegan Bradley.
The field for the 142nd British Open golf championship, which starts Thursday at Muirfield. Players listed in only the first category for which they qualified:
Guan Tianlang, the 14-year-old Chinese amateur, continues to add to his scrapbook of incredible feats.
Castro hit shots to tap-in range on the famed 17th and 18th holes on his way to a 9-under 63. That tied the course record held by Greg Norman and Fred Couples, and gave him a three-shot lead over Rory McIlroy.
One year ago, Jason Dufner's victory at the Zurich Classic made him the fifth player in the last eight years to celebrate his maiden PGA Tour triumph in New Orleans.
At some point after he won the 1986 Masters, Jack Nicklaus lost two major championships. He's just not sure when.
We're seeing some low scores among the early finishers, perhaps an indication that the greens aren't as tough as usual on an overcast day. Michael Thompson shot a 5-under 67, Ryan Moore and Ryo Ishikawa posted 68s, and Keegan Bradley turned in a 69 _ 13 shots better than the day before. Get ready: It could be quite a shootout among the leaders.
Tiger Woods has teed off for his final round on a cloudy day at Augusta National. The rest of the leaders will begin their rounds in the next 25 minutes. It's raining about 145 miles West of here over in Atlanta, so we might get a few showers before the day is done. But nothing serious expected.
Jason Day was having a g'day at the Masters,, and if he can finish it off, there's going to be quite a celebration Down Under.
