5 monthes ago   |   By

Masters champion Patrick Reed is a pretty no-nonsense guy. His 3-over-par 73 on Thursday, in the first round of the U.S. Open on a day when the scoring average exceeded 76, didn't bring a sense of satisfaction, or a smile.

Column: Mickelson gives US Open the silent treatment

5 monthes ago   |   By

SOUTHAMPTON, N.Y. - Phil Mickelson almost won the U.S. Open once while wearing a beeper - yes, a beeper - in case he had to be summoned for the birth of his daughter. He skipped another one because the same daughter was graduating from high school.
If it seems like Mickelson has been chasing Open titles almost as long as the USGA has been putting the tournament on, well, it's not that much of a stretch. This is his 27th Open, and his third at Shinnecock Hills, where the first time he played was so long ago the winner hit a 4-wood made out of real wood on the 18th hole to capture the...

The bigger the names, the bigger the numbers. Such was the rule of thumb in the first round of the U.S. Open at Shinnecock Hills Golf Club on Thursday - and a downward-turned thumb at that.

US to open temporary shelter in Texas for immigrant children

5 monthes ago   |   By

HOUSTON - Federal authorities say they will open a temporary shelter for unaccompanied immigrant children in far west Texas as existing facilities reach capacity.
A spokesman for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services said Thursday that authorities would open a shelter at the Tornillo port of entry, about 40 miles southeast of El Paso. The spokesman did not immediately respond to questions about whether children would be kept outdoors.

Star group of Mickelson, McIlroy, Spieth crash at Shinnecock

5 monthes ago   |   By

SOUTHAMPTON, N.Y. - Three holes into his 27th U.S. Open, Phil Mickelson called over a rules official for a question rarely heard.
“Is there a rule that allows me to see the ball when I hit it?” he asked.
There was no relief for Mickelson. Not on the 12th hole at Shinnecock Hills. Not at many others.
And he wasn't alone.
Mickelson was in the marquee group Thursday morning, which featured three players who have a dozen majors among them. And because USGA officials try to have a sense of humour, they put together the only three active players who have three legs of the career Grand...

The Latest: Johnson gets a little help finding ball in rough

SOUTHAMPTON, N.Y. - The Latest on the U.S. Open's first round Thursday : 3:40 p.m. The rough is so thick at Shinnecock that players are having a hard time finding their golf ball even with help from volunteers.

The Latest: Traffic nightmare averted, at least for players

5 monthes ago   |   By

SOUTHAMPTON, N.Y. - The Latest on the U.S. Open's first round Thursday : 3 p.m. The last golfers have teed off for the first round of the U.S. Open, and that means tournament organizers have avoided the nightmare traffic scenario that had been feared earlier in the week. With the 15-mile trip from the official players' hotel to Shinnecock Hills taking two to three hours during the practice rounds, the USGA warned players to leave extra early for the course. A golfer who is late for his tee time is disqualified, and traffic is no excuse.
