LOS ANGELES (AP) — Tiger Woods had Riviera rocking with cheers that could be heard a half-mile away, three birdies and an eagle in his opening four holes for his hottest start on the PGA Tour in nearly 10 years.
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Justin Thomas was playing well enough to want to keep going, with six birdies in a seven-hole stretch before it was too dark to continue Friday at the Genesis Open.
It also was raining.
It was cold.
And he already had been slogging through Riviera for nine hours.
SAN DIEGO (AP) — Justin Rose won at Torrey Pines. Adam Scott challenged him to the final hole. And thanks to that 1-2 finish at the Farmers Insurance Open, both surpassed $50 million in career earnings on the PGA Tour.
It's a feat achieved by only five other players. These days, it's little more than a monetary milestone.
SAN DIEGO (AP) — Justin Rose missed a short birdie putt that felt like another bogey. His three-shot lead was down to one through six holes of the Farmers Insurance Open, and the biggest battle was trying not to panic.
That's when he scratched a line on his scorecard after six holes, wanting to start his round from that moment forward.
And he gave himself a pep talk.
"You're No. 1 for a reason. Just start playing like it, please," he said.
SAN DIEGO (AP) — Justin Rose overcame a few nervous moments early with enough key putts down the stretch for a 3-under 69 and a two-stroke victory over Adam Scott in the Farmers Insurance Open on Sunday.
Rose had a three-shot lead shrink to a single shot with his third bogey in five holes to start the final round at Torrey Pines. He restored his lead, and then had to hold off a late charge by Scott, who birdied his last four holes for a 68. Rose finished at 21-under 267.
SAN DIEGO (AP) — Justin Rose tracked the flight of his 3-wood until he saw it splash into the pond guarding the 18th green at Torrey Pines. He walked a few steps and pulled his cap down over his eyes, the look of a man who had just made a crucial mistake at the wrong time.
The World Cup of Golf appears to have found a home in southeast Melbourne.
For the third consecutive time, one of golf's biggest team events is being played at a famous sandbelt course in the southeastern Australian city. The 28-team tournament, based on the Official World Golf Ranking, begins Thursday at Metropolitan Golf Club, with Denmark returning as the defending champion from nearby Kingston Heath in 2016.
MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) — Marc Leishman will partner Cameron Smith for the home team when Australia hosts the World Cup of Golf at Metropolitan Golf Club in November.
Tournament officials said Friday that Jason Day was not available for Australia due to the pending birth of his child, and that Leishman, as captain, chose Smith over Adam Scott to play alongside him in the 56-man, $7 million tournament from Nov. 22-25.
ST. LOUIS (AP) — The roars were unlike anything Brooks Koepka had ever heard, and he knew exactly what they meant.
They got louder for each birdie by Tiger Woods that moved him closer to the lead Sunday in the PGA Championship, and Koepka could hear a ripple effect of noise. First, real time. Seconds later, another burst from patrons watching on TV in chalets. Then, distant cheers from every corner of Bellerive when the score was posted.
ST. LOUIS (AP) — Brooks Koepka is impossible to overlook now, winning the PGA Championship on Sunday with machine-like precision to go with his back-to-back U.S. Open titles.
And it still felt — and sounded — like he was playing second billing to Tiger Woods.
With roars for Woods unheard anywhere this side of Augusta National, Koepka kept his cool and ran off two birdies on the back nine at Bellerive with Adam Scott tied for the lead and Woods one shot behind.
ST. LOUIS (AP) — A brief look at Sunday's final round at the PGA Championship:
WINNER: Brooks Koepka shot 4-under 66 to finish at 16-under 264.
RUNNER-UP: Tiger Woods shot his best final round in a major, 6-under 64, to finish second — two strokes back.
BRIEFLY TIED: Playing in the final group, Adam Scott was briefly knotted with Koepka at 14 under but finished third, a shot behind Woods.
ST. LOUIS (AP) — Adam Scott was poised to pull off a successful sneak attack at the PGA Championship on Sunday, quietly hanging around the top of the leaderboard while all the attention was elsewhere.
ST. LOUIS (AP) — The Latest on the PGA Championship, golf's final major of the year (all times local):
Brooks Koepka has won his first PGA Championship, playing poised and mistake-free golf down the stretch amid ear-splitting roars for Tiger Woods and a late charge from revitalized Adam Scott.
ST. LOUIS (AP) — Brooks Koepka sometimes gets ignored on television in the list of notable scores. In the gym, he gets overlooked by Dustin Johnson
There is no mistaking him in a major.
Koepka bullied rain-softened Bellerive on Saturday in the PGA Championship, building a five-shot lead until he had to scramble to avoid a slide on the back nine. He settled for a 4-under 66 and a two-shot lead over Adam Scott going into the final round of the final major of the year.
ST. LOUIS (AP) — A look at the key hole Saturday in the third round of the PGA Championship:
ST. LOUIS (AP) — Adam Scott was back in contention for the first time in what seemed like an eternity when the former Masters champion began the final round of the British Open last month.
His mindset? Take it low.
"And I took the wrong mindset," Scott admitted Saturday after shooting a 5-under 65 that left him two shots back of Brooks Koepka heading into the final round of the PGA Championship.
He wound up shooting 73 at Carnoustie and was never in contention on the back nine.
ST. LOUIS (AP) — The Latest on the PGA Championship, golf's final major of the year (all times local):
Brooks Koepka will take a two-shot lead over Adam Scott into the final round of the PGA Championship after shooting a 4-under 66 that left him at 12 under for the tournament.
CARNOUSTIE, Scotland (AP) — Three tournaments remain before the top eight players qualify for the U.S. Ryder Cup team, including $10 million or more purses from the World Golf Championship at Firestone and the PGA Championship.
Another deadline quickly approaching is the FedEx Cup, and Adam Scott did himself a big favor with his tie for 17th at the British Open.
SOUTHAMPTON, N.Y. (AP) — The Latest on Friday's second round of the U.S. Open (all times local):
The U.S. Open cut sliced off some huge names.
Gone are Tiger Woods, Jordan Spieth, Rory McIlroy and Jason Day.
Headed home are Sergio Garcia, Adam Scott, Martin Kaymer and Jon Rahm.
Throw in some other major tournament winners such as Keegan Bradley, Charl Schwartzel and Ernie Els.
SOUTHAMPTON, N.Y. (AP) — The U.S. Open cut sliced off some huge names.
There won't be an inspiring weekend return to the tournament for Tiger Woods, nor a fifth major championship for Rory McIlroy.
Jordan Spieth won't get his fourth major, Martin Kaymer never contended for a third and Jason Day is going home without his second. Same deal for some other owners of one major title: Sergio Garcia, Adam Scott and Keegan Bradley.
SOUTHAMPTON, N.Y. (AP) — In the six days since Adam Scott qualified for the U.S. Open, he has a new caddie and an old coach.
Scott showed up at Shinnecock Hills on Sunday without David Clark, who had been exclusively on his bag for last 18 months. Scott said they parted ways after making it through the 36-hole sectional qualifier on Monday in Ohio.
Instead, he will use a caddie from Shinnecock Hills this week at the U.S. Open.
Tiger Woods will play the opening two rounds of the U.S. Open with Justin Thomas and Dustin Johnson, which feels like a grouping of Nos. 1-2-3 in the world ranking.
Except that Woods is No. 80.
The USGA released its tee times Thursday for the U.S. Open next week at Shinnecock Hills, and it offered two stacked groups for the morning and afternoon.
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Adam Scott and Russell Knox were among those who made it through 36 holes of U.S. Open qualifying. The next order of business was to call the FedEx St. Jude classic and express their regrets.
Perhaps no alternate list is more volatile than the PGA Tour event the week of U.S. Open qualifying.
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Adam Scott spent five weeks trying to secure his spot in the world ranking to get into the U.S. Open. The last resort was his first 36-hole sectional qualifier, and the former Masters champion and world No. 1 made it Monday with one stroke to spare.
