  • Woods’ woes only get worse Aug 8, 2014 8:26 PM
    The 96th PGA Championship is only at the midway point, but its two weekend rounds will be lacking something. Tiger Woods won’t be around when the pursuit of front-running Rory McIlroy resumes on Saturday. Woods missed the cut after shooting his second straight 74 in Friday’s second round at Valhalla, and that could well mean the end to a dismal, injury-filled season for golf’s long-time No. 1 star. He still has a long way to go to recover from the back problems that bothered him all season and required surgery March 31. His 6-over-par 146 total at Valhalla was 5 strokes above the cut line to play the final 36 holes of the last major championship of 2014.

  • Western Amateur one tough test Jul 29, 2014 10:22 PM
    No tournament in golf, amateur or professional, requires as much to win as the Western Amateur.

  • Zach Johnson’s 67 earns share of JDC lead Jul 11, 2014 7:56 PM
    The John Deere Classic isn’t Zach Johnson’s personal showcase. It just seems that way at times. Johnson gained a share of the first-round lead after shooting a 63 on Thursday. He added a 67 in Friday’s second round to hit the midway point in the tourney in a tie for the lead with William McGirt.

     
  • 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.
