Luke Guthrie brought only one 2-liter bottle of Mountain Dew from America, enough of a caffeine fix to get him through the week without headaches. He packed only one sweater _ lime green _ because his crash course on Shanghai did not include checking the forecast.
Keegan Bradley is playing so well at the CIMB Classic that not even his beloved Boston Red Sox and the World Series can distract him.
Luke Guthrie took only 19 putts in his round of 7-under 65, giving Americans the top three spots on the leaderboard Thursday in the BMW Masters.
Matt Kuchar knows how it feels to make clutch birdies at Oak Hill.
Ever since Greg Norman's final-round implosion allowed Nick Faldo win the Masters in 1996, a generation of fine English talent has come up short in golf's four major championships.
The most recent golden era of golf in England had everything but the one prize that brings credibility.
Rose's win at Merion made him the first Englishman since Tony Jacklin in 1970 at Hazeltine to win America's national championship.

While lining up an eagle putt on the 12th green, Paul Casey ended up in the "ruff."
For Michael Phelps, the atmosphere at last week's Ryder Cup was unlike anything he experienced at an Olympics.
Whether it's sheer concentration, inspiration from the loudest gallery in golf or a willingness to deliver when the sport is more about country and continent than cash, the Ryder Cup tends to deliver more stunning shots in three days than most fans see in a month.
The Ryder Cup comes to Chicago for the first time, and it's only fitting that the Windy City can claim one of the players as its own.
"It's been very tough the last two days in the wind," Casey said. "These are not conditions I expected or wanted. But it makes a very good, difficult golf course even more so. It's a great test of golf, which is I guess what we want. This is the Final Series for us in Europe. It's meant to be difficult, and it has been."
"Maybe it was the best thing I could have done was to save energy for today, and I did feel fresh," he said.
