JERSEY CITY, N.J. (AP) — Liberty National was never so susceptible to low scoring as it was Thursday, and Tiger Woods could feel it. He just couldn't do much about it.
GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) — Byeong Hun An and Sungjae Im each shot 8-under 62 on Thursday to share the lead after one round at the Wyndham Championship.
ST. SIMONS ISLAND, Ga. (AP) — Charles Howell III made a 15-foot birdie putt on the second hole of a playoff with Patrick Rodgers on Sunday in the RSM Classic to end an 11-year victory drought.
Howell dropped to his knees and buried his head in his hands, then tearfully embraced wife Heather and children Ansley and Chase — neither of whom were born when he last won on the PGA Tour at Riviera in 2007.
For the first time in his PGA Tour career, Bryson DeChambeau will enter a tournament looking to defend a title.
DeChambeau's breakthrough on the PGA Tour came last year at the John Deere Classic, which tees off on Thursday at TPC Deere Run in Silvis, Illinois. After entering the final round four strokes off the pace, DeChambeau birdied six of his final nine holes for a one-shot win over Patrick Rodgers.
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.
PLAYA DEL CARMEN, Mexico (AP) — Rickie Fowler woke up at 5 a.m. Saturday and played three holes in the OHL Classic at Mayakoba. It was enough to get him a three-way share of the 36-hole lead going into a marathon finish in Mexico.
PLAYA DEL CARMEN, Mexico (AP) — Patrick Rodgers kept making birdies until his name was atop the leaderboard and it was too dark to play any longer Friday.
Rodgers, a former Jack Nicklaus Award winner as the top player in college, ran off four straight birdies on the back nine and reached 11-under par until the storm-delayed OHL Classic at Mayakoba was suspended by darkness.
Rodgers hit his tee shot on the par-5 seventh hole, one of the three holes he will have to complete Saturday morning.
SILVIS, Ill. (AP) — Third-round leader Patrick Rodgers knew that it would take a ton of birdies Sunday to win the John Deere Classic.
Bryson DeChambeau took that advice to heart.
DeChambeau overcame a four-stroke deficit to beat Rodgers by a stroke for his first PGA Tour title — and a spot next week in the British Open.
SILVIS, Ill. (AP) — Patrick Rodgers is 18 holes away from his first PGA Tour win.
But the 25-year-old former Stanford star knows that it'll likely take a lower score than the one he shot Saturday to secure such a milestone victory.
Rodgers shot a 3-under 68 in the third round, maintaining a two-stroke lead in the John Deere Classic.
Rodgers had a 16-under 197 total at TPC Deere Run. He's trying to become the third player in five years to win the Quad Cities event for his first PGA Tour title.
SILVIS, Ill. (AP) — Patrick Rodgers shot a 7-under 64 on Friday to take a two-shot lead after the second round of the John Deere Classic.
Rodgers had eight birdies and a bogey to finish at 13-under 129 at TPC Deere Run. Finishing on the front nine, he had five birdies in a seven-hole stretch before closing with a bogey on the par-4 ninth.
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — The range of emotions was to be expected when some 750 players were spread across 10 cities to compete for 53 spots in the U.S. Open.
Only that wasn't limited to the final stage of U.S. Open qualifying.
Or even the golf course.
"It kills me not to be there," Patrick Rodgers said.
"It was a tough decision," Geoff Ogilvy said. "Obviously, that's a tournament that means a lot to me."
SAN DIEGO (AP) — Patrick Rodgers had a clean scorecard to match a picture-perfect Saturday at Torrey Pines and shot a 5-under 67 to share the lead with defending champion Brandt Snedeker in the Farmers Insurance Open.
Snedeker, trying to become only the fourth player to win back-to-back at Torrey Pines, didn't get much out of his round of 70. His three birdies were all inside 6 feet, and the longest putt he made was for par.
SAN DIEGO (AP) — Already a two-time winner at Torrey Pines, having a share of the lead is exactly where Brandt Snedeker wanted to be Saturday.
It's just not all that familiar to him.
Snedeker won last year in the Farmers Insurance Open by rallying from six shots behind in the final round that was stretched over two days because of high wind. His other victory at Torrey was in 2012, when he was seven shots behind and won in a playoff over Kyle Stanley, who made triple bogey on the last hole.
KAPALUA, Hawaii (AP) — Jordan Spieth made it tough on everyone in his age group, including Justin Thomas.
The high school class of 2011 features Spieth and Thomas, along with Daniel Berger, Patrick Rodgers, Ollie Schniederjans and Emiliano Grillo. Another of their friends from junior golf, Smylie Kaufman, was one year ahead of them.
They all were top players with bright futures.
None proved it quicker than Spieth, which only raised the bar for everyone else.
CROMWELL, Conn. (AP) — Daniel Berger birdied seven of his last 10 holes Sunday for an 8-under 62 and a three-stroke lead in the Travelers Championship.
The 23-year-old Floridian, the PGA Tour rookie of the year last season, had just one bogey and was two strokes off the course record. He reached 15-under 195 at TPC River Highlands, following up rounds of 66 and 67 that left him tied for the lead coming into the day.
