  • By the Rover's count, the Brits have at least four exceptional twentysomething talents in Justin Ros

    By the Rover's count, the Brits have at least four exceptional twentysomething talents in Justin Rose (26), Paul Casey (29), Nick Dougherty (25) and Luke Donald (29), while the United States boasts only one: Sean O'Hair (24). Translation: expect many more one-sided Ryder Cups over the coming decade.


  • One-armed Lefty is still in contention

    OAKMONT, Pa. -- Sorry, but when I see Phil Mickelson toughing it out with a wrist support in the U.S. Open, well, I don't exactly think of Curt Schilling and his bloody sock. Nor do I think of Willis Reed limping onto the court for Game 7 of the 1970 NBA Finals. Or of Kirk Gibson hobbling around the bases after homering to win the '88 World Series opener. Or of Jack Youngblood playing in the Super Bowl on a broken leg.


  • No American looks like a lovable loser

    OAKMONT, Pa. -- Something's missing from this U.S. Open, something that at least partially makes up for the barrage of bogeys we — and the poor players — are about to be subjected to: a sentimental favorite on the American side. By that I mean an accomplished veteran golfer who has yet to win a major championship, a guy who everybody agrees is "owed one."
