  • Tiger Woods nearly misses cut at British Open Jul 18, 2014 1:40 PM
    Tiger Woods has shot one of his worst rounds at the British Open, a 5-over 77 that nearly cost him a chance to play this weekend. Woods has failed to make the cut at a major only three times in his professional career, most recently at the 2011 PGA Championship. He was in danger again after a triple-bogey at the 17th hole pushed his score to 3 over for the tournament — outside the projected cut.

  • British Open: a new golf course, a new Tiger Woods Jul 15, 2014 1:40 PM
    Tiger Woods was an hour into his practice round Tuesday at the British Open when he stood on the fifth tee with a foreign object in his hand. In golf vernacular, it’s called a driver. “This is a different golf course when what we played in ‘06,” Woods said. “It was hot, ball was flying. It was very dusty. Now we’re making ball marks on the greens, which we weren’t doing then.”

Lefty was in good spirits Monday at the British Open, except for having to return the claret jug.

  • For Niebrugge, Stricker more than a mentor Jul 8, 2014 4:42 PM
    There’s an interesting combination in the field for this week’s John Deere Classic, the only PGA Tour event played in Illinois in 2014. Steve Stricker, who considers himself semiretired at age 47 because he plays only a limited tournament schedule, has long been a JDC mainstay. u.s. Amateur Public Links champ Jordan Niebrugge, meanwhile, will be one of the youngest players in the 156-man starting field. They both hail from Wisconsin.
