Open and shut: Spieth authors epic British win
(Sun, 23 Jul 2017 17:38:24 GMT)
Jordan Spieth captured his third major with one of the toughest tests of will in golf history.

Jordan Spieth won The Open after his caddie saved his butt on the wild 13th hole
(Sun, 23 Jul 2017 20:25:27 GMT)
Jordan Spieth went on an epic run on the final five holes to win The Open Championship, but it may have never happened if not for his caddie saving the day on the wild 13th hole. At No. 13, Spieth hit his tee shot about 100 yards to the right of the fairway. While Spieth had a much cleaner lie in the practice area, his shot to the green was completely blind and his own calculation of how far he was from the green turned out to be way off.

‘Lovely legs’: Announcer still ranting about Sergio Garcia’s fiancée’s skirt
(Sat, 22 Jul 2017 17:55:56 GMT)
Peter Alliss risked being branded as sexist again in referring to Sergio Garcia’s fiancee’s “lovely legs” and saying her skirt didn’t belong on a golf course. The legendary BBC commentator was criticized at April’s Masters for an off-mic remark in which he said Angela Akins was wearing “the shortest skirt on the campus.” And now he has refused to back down from his comments in a column for a magazine. Alliss writes in Atlantic Golf & Lifestyle that Akins’ skirt was more suited to ice skating than a golf course. She was seen at Royal Birkdale this week wearing a skirt similar to the one that initially caught Alliss’ attention at Augusta. Garcia will marry American Akins – a former Golf Channel

Fans love Golf Channel's 'playing through' feature
(Sat, 22 Jul 2017 17:15:00 GMT)
At the Ryder Cup last year the Golf Channel introduced a new feature which can only be described as a game changer. Rather than miss one second of play, when it's time for an ad break, Golf Channel simply runs the ad in a double screen alongside the coverage. It's an idea that could work across a variety of different sports, like baseball and soccer, and naturally, golf fans love it:

Goodwin rallies to win U.S. Junior Am
(Sun, 23 Jul 2017 01:43:00 GMT)
ANDOVER, Kan. - Noah Goodwin rallied to beat Matthew Wolff 1 up in 100-degree heat Saturday in the U.S. Junior Amateur final to become the third player to win a year after losing the title match. The 17-year-old Goodwin, from Corinth, Texas, was four holes down with eight to play at Flint Hills National before pulling off the second-biggest comeback in tournament history. ''It's every junior's dream to win the U.S. Junior,'' Goodwin said. ''It's the most prestigious junior event in the entire world. Everybody knows about it, and to add my name among the greats like Jordan Spieth and Tiger Woods just means everything to me.'' Goodwin works with Spieth's instructor, Cameron McCormick, and the noted

NASCAR drivers golf instead of watching XFINITY Series race
(Sat, 22 Jul 2017 22:30:00 GMT)
Depending on the schedule, most Cup Series drivers spend their Saturdays either practicing, resting, fulfilling sponsor obligations or actually watching the XFINITY Series race. But this Saturday, sandwiched between practice in the morning and qualifying this evening for Sunday's Brickyard 400, Ricky Stenhouse Jr., Kyle Larson and Denny Hamlin opted to hit the golf course at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. While the XFINITY drivers are flying around the 2.5-mile track, these guys are taking advantage of the Brickyard Crossing golf course, which borders the track and actually has four holes inside of it. Google Earth screenshot Most tracks on the schedule don't offer these kind of amenities - although

LOOK: Tiger Woods has a pool table that Raiders fans will absolutely love
(Sat, 22 Jul 2017 05:45:00 GMT)
Tiger Woods isn't exactly in any shape to be playing golf right now, so it looks like he has decided to pass time by playing another sport: billiards.   Woods apparently has a pool table at his house, and since he now has some free time on his hands, it looks like he decided to redesign his pool table by getting rid of the green felt that normally covers a pool table and adding some silver and black.  Basically, Woods turned his pool table into something that every Raiders fan is going to want for Christmas.  If you want you're own Raiders pool table, all you have to do is go to Walmart.com and fork over roughly $3,000. Actually, don't do that, it looks like Tiger might've bought them all because

Chad Collins' brilliant approach at Barbasol
(Sat, 22 Jul 2017 22:48:23 GMT)
In the third round of the 2017 Barbasol Championship, Chad Collins stuffs his 137-yard approach inside 2 feet to set up a tap-in birdie on the par-4 15th hole.

Bubba to media: How did you play that hole today?
(Sat, 22 Jul 2017 11:40:00 GMT)
SOUTHPORT, England - Bubba Watson has a bit of a prickly past when it comes to answering questions from the golf media, but one would think after staying in contention at The Open following a second-round 72, he'd be happy to meet the press and discuss the possibility of trying to win his first major since the 2014 Masters. Well ... one would be wrong. The Open: Full-field scores | Live blog: Day 3 | Full coverage Not only did Watson not want to answer questions in the first place, because those questions (from golf media members covering a golf tournament) are always the same (about the golf being played at a golf tournament), but he grew indignant the longer he talked, eventually falling back

Justin Thomas not in talkative mood after shooting 80
(Sat, 22 Jul 2017 07:19:22 GMT)
SOUTHPORT, England — Justin Thomas likely will try to purge this week’s experience from his mind. Thomas, who began the second round two shots off the lead, shot an 80 on Friday, lowlighted by a 9 he took on the par-4 sixth hole, which he made a of mess trying to hack his ball out of the high grass. He took three big swings — first the ball didn’t move, then it jumped backwards before losing the ball on his third swing as it stayed buried in high grass. He finally took a drop and pitched onto the green. So Thomas went from contending to missing the cut by two shots with his 7-over total. Thomas was unavailable for comment after his round. It has been a trying week for defending champion Henrik

‘It’s crushing’: Jordan Spieth’s run made his victim’s family cry
(Sun, 23 Jul 2017 21:27:37 GMT)
SOUTHPORT, England — Jordan Spieth was euphoric. He’d just won the British Open and was about to be handed the coveted Claret Jug for the first time in his already-brilliant career. As he walked up the hill from the 18th green to the scorer’s trailer, he spotted Matt Kuchar, whom he’d just denied a first career major championship, being greeted by his wife and two sons. The two young boys were crying. Kuchar comforted them briefly before entering the scorer’s trailer to go over the scorecards. Spieth noticed inside the trailer that Kuchar, who’s known for having a smile perpetually plastered to his face, was emotional. When Kuchar emerged outside from the trailer to ready himself for the awards

Danny Willett fails to see the fun side of early Open start as Yorkshireman continues to struggle with his game
(Sun, 23 Jul 2017 18:59:58 GMT)
A Yorkshireman to a tee, Danny Willett was not prepared to apply a single coat of sugar to the dubious honour of teeing off first in the final round of the 146th Open Championship. “It was amazing,” Willett said, with several dollops of heavy sarcasm. A year ago, Willett bestrode the Open Championship as Masters champion, the world seemingly at his feet.

W2W4 at The Open: Will anyone catch Jordan Spieth?
(Sat, 22 Jul 2017 21:15:52 GMT)
SOUTHPORT, England -- Jordan Spieth, 23, heads into the final round of the 146th Open holding a 3-shot lead, which is nothing new. The Texan has sat atop the leaderboard an astonishing 14 different times after a round in his young career. If he can make it 15 on Sunday, he'll grab the third leg of the career Grand Slam. Will anyone catch Spieth? We asked our panel of writers at Royal Birkdale to weigh in. No chance. When he's on like this, no one can catch him. What's scary is the rest of the field knows it, too. His 2015 wasn't that long ago. When he went to a place where he got into contention, he won. By the end of the FedEx Cup playoffs, anyone going head-to-head with him learned pretty quickly

British Open purse 2017: Winner's payout is $1.845 million in prize money
(Sun, 23 Jul 2017 15:00:02 GMT)
The golfer who wins The Open Championship on Sunday at Royal Birkdale will get the Claret Jug. He’ll also take home $1.845 million in prize money out of a total purse of $10.25 million. That payout will come in American dollars for the first time ever. “We are operating in an increasingly global marketplace and have made the decision to award the prize fund in US dollars in recognition of the fact that it is the most widely adopted currency for prize money in golf," R&A chief executive Martin Slumbers said. He didn’t mention that the British pound is down considerably from last summer. The $10.25 million total purse makes The Open the second-most lucrative event in golf behind the U.S. Open,

Watch: Spieth hits a lot of poor shots on Sunday
(Sun, 23 Jul 2017 12:30:00 GMT)
Here's a look at the not-so-great shots and putts Spieth hit on Sunday. Remember: You've been warned. We begin with Spieth losing his cool at No. 1. He made bogey: He uncharacterically missed a short putt for birdie on No. 9 Then he went way left into the spectators on No. 11. He managed to save par. And then on 13, he grabbed his head immediately after hitting his drive as his ball sailed so far right he ended up dropping a ball and playing from near the practice grounds. He eventually made bogey after a 25 minute delay to figure out where he was going to play his approach shot from. If Spieth is going to win his third major on Sunday at Royal Birkdale, he'll have to overcome some of the wildest

'Team Alfie' members making themselves heard at British Open
(Sat, 22 Jul 2017 17:07:00 GMT)
They snaked their way beside the undulating fairways of Royal Birkdale all week, a group of around 150 spectators wearing white T-shirts and caps, displaying colorful banners and cheering on their working-class hero playing inside the ropes. Meet Team Alfie, the fan club of a 25-year-old amateur golfer from east London who has risen to prominence at this British Open. Alfie Plant is the only amateur playing the weekend at Birkdale, so he's set to win the silver medal as low amateur, following in the footsteps of Tiger Woods (1996) and Rory McIlroy (2007) among others. After tapping in for par at No. 18 for a 1-under 69 in his third round Saturday, he looked up to a grandstand to the right of

Spieth loses cool: 'That's just crap man'
(Sun, 23 Jul 2017 09:59:00 GMT)
Winning an Open has a lot to do with managing the elements and keeping your emotions intact. It didn't take long for front-runner Jordan Spieth to lose his cool on Sunday of the 146th Open, where he began the day with a three-shot lead. Spieth's tee shot at the first was struck nicely and even Johnny Miller commented what a confidence-booster it was. Spieth did a club twirl and swiftly bent down to pick up his tee. But the shot was headed left and didn't curl back into the fairway or bounce back in. Instead, it got caught up in the thick gorse and when Spieth came upon it, he didn't mince words. “That’s just crap man, that’s crap. Not getting rewarded for good shots,” Spieth said. His caddie

Spieth silences his doubters - including himself
(Sun, 23 Jul 2017 21:02:00 GMT)
It wasn’t Jean van de Velde standing in the burn at Carnoustie, but it was no less outrageous – Jordan Spieth perched atop a dune glaring into a cold rain. Although Spieth was trying as best he could to see a line to the 13th green, and minimize the damage of a drive that ended up closer to the practice tee than it did the fairway, he may as well have been watching the claret jug slipping away into the gloom. Van de Velde went on to lose that 2006 Open in spectacular fashion, whereas Spieth’s finish was even more remarkable and completed a wire-to-wire victory that was far more eventful than anyone could have imagined just 24 hours earlier. “Give me a round number,” Spieth shouted to his caddie Michael Greller from atop the hill adjacent to the 13th fairway.

After Further Review: Race to a Slam
(Sun, 23 Jul 2017 22:50:00 GMT)
Each week, GolfChannel.com takes a look back at the week in golf. Here's what's weighing on our writers' minds.  On the three-way chase for a career Grand Slam: With three players now one leg away from the career Grand Slam, expect Jordan Spieth to be the first of the trio to round the bases. Spieth might not win next month at Quail Hollow, but he’s ideally positioned to lift the Wanamaker Trophy sooner rather than later and clearly is able to conjure magic on a major stage. Phil Mickelson’s window to win the U.S. Open has likely closed, while the lengthy lead-up to the Masters doesn’t help Rory McIlroy’s cause. The PGA’s position on the calendar, whether in May or August, should shorten the

Rory McIlroy stands still again in pursuit of greatness
(Sat, 22 Jul 2017 19:56:42 GMT)
Not so long ago, Rory McIlroy was the phenomenon deemed capable of 20 majors or more. While Jordan Spieth, five years his junior, streaked into the sunset, he slipped agitatedly into the shadows. There was a sense of wonder at Hoylake when McIlroy achieved his third major triumph at the age of 25. Spieth, however, is on the cusp of doing so at 23.

Satisfied Spieth eyes third major title
(Sat, 22 Jul 2017 10:06:22 GMT)
By Ed Osmond SOUTHPORT, England (Reuters) - Jordan Spieth was a contented man after battling strong winds and torrential rain to move clear of the field in the British Open second round on Friday. The American world number three shot 69 to follow an opening 65 and finished on six under par, two strokes ahead of compatriot Matt Kuchar, as his bid for a third major title gathered momentum. "We got in at six under and it was a very, very solid day," Spieth told reporters.

Birkdale overcomes 62, technology to shine in British Open spotlight
(Sun, 23 Jul 2017 20:01:45 GMT)
SOUTHPORT, England – Royal Birkdale gave us another Grade 1 British Open winner, another week of starry leaderboards and further validation that, at least as far as English venues go, this continues to be a player and fan favorite.  The 2017 Open produced a thoroughbred headed to the Hall of Fame, whose talent and depth of preparation was heightened by the challenges of Birkdale.  Even before Jordan Spieth captured the Claret Jug, the course was validated by the previous list of winners. Even after 36 holes of the 146th Open, 18 of the top-20 players in the world made the cut. In the discombobulated terrain that is modern golf, where elite players seem streakier than their predecessors, such
