So who will win a tournament first.....Phil or Tiger?
I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.

Brooks Koepka becomes 7th player to go back-to-back at U.S. Open

One was about power. The other was about patience.

Brooks Koepka has a game for the U.S. Open no matter the course, no matter the test, no matter the circumstances.

He never lost hope when he began his title defense with a 75 and was 7-over par midway through the second round. He didn't lose his mind in the most punishing third round of a U.S. Open in nearly two decades.

Hall of Fame golfer Hubert Green dies at 71

Hall of Fame golfer Hubert Green, who won a U.S. Open playing portions of the final round despite a threat against his life, has died. He was 71.

Green won the 1977 U.S. Open and the 1985 PGA Championship in a career that included 19 PGA Tour victories and four on the seniors circuit. The PGA Tour announced that Green died Tuesday after battling throat cancer.

On the course....
nobody follows Tiger Woods anymore, because his galleries are too big.

Another big-name superfight could soon be coming to the Las Vegas area -- but this one would trade boxing gloves for golf clubs.

Golf stars Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson reportedly are trying to set up a $10 million winner-take-all match play event in Sin City that would be broadcasted live on television and would feature both greats wearing microphones.

If Phil keeps wearing those long sleeved straight jacket shirts - he'll lose!
Great idea that will do really well imo
No one has ever bet enough on a winning horse.

Tiger Woods to battle past struggles with slow greens at The Open

The golf course is fast, the golf ball is rolling forever and ever, and Carnoustie promises to see some unique strategy decisions this week during The Open.

That is true for Tiger Woods, who returns to the tournament for the first time since 2015 and for his fourth tournament -- and third Open -- at what is generally considered the toughest venue in the tournament rotation.

Zach Johnson, Kevin Kisner matched at 6-under in second round

Zach Johnson and Kevin Kisner are more than just housemates this week. They share the lead in the British Open.

Johnson, whose name already is on the claret jug from his playoff victory at St. Andrews three years ago, holed a 30-foot birdie putt Friday on the 18th hole at Carnoustie for a 4-under 67 just as the rain was starting to end.

My gosh did anybody else play in The Open besides Tiger. No doubt about it he's a great player but I thought the coverage way a little much.

What are the playoff rules for the PGA?

72 holes doesn't seem like it'll be enough.

I'm pretty sure that both Ragozin and Thorograph will be giving Tiger the better number considering how wide he went, how much trouble he encountered etc.
