ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. (AP) — Two-time U.S. Open champion Retief Goosen and three-time major champion Jan Stephenson are among five people selected for induction into the World Golf Hall of Fame.
A 16-member panel of mostly golf administrators also selected retired Augusta National chairman Billy Payne, LPGA charter member and renowned teacher Peggy Kirk Bell and Dennis Walters, who has been inspiring golfers through clinics despite being paralyzed from the chest down since he was 24.
ST. LOUIS (AP) — The land of Ernie Els, Retief Goosen, Louis Oosthuizen and Charl Schwartzel could be delivering another major-title winner.
With his second straight solid round at the PGA Championship on Friday, South Africa's Brandon Stone is one good weekend away from breaking through at the same course where the godfather of golf in his country, Gary Player, completed the career grand slam a generation ago.
Two-time U.S. Open champion Retief Goosen was among 12 players who made it into the British Open on Tuesday through local final qualifying.
Goosen had rounds of 71-72 at Princes to make it by one shot.
Local final qualifying offered three spots at each of four links across Britain. Tom Lewis, who held the 18-hole lead at nearby Royal St. George's in the 2011 Open when he was a 20-year-old amateur, led the three qualifiers from Princes.
Facts and figures for the 118th U.S. Open golf championship, which starts Thursday in Southampton, New York:
Site: Shinnecock Hills Golf Club.
Length: 7,445 yards.
Par: 70 (35-35).
Cut: Top 60 players and ties.
Playoff (if necessary): Two-hole aggregate immediately after 72 holes are completed.
Field: 156 players (136 professionals, 20 amateurs).
SOUTHAMPTON, N.Y. (AP) — The U.S. Open prefers to be looked upon as the ultimate test in golf, which can be an invitation for trouble.
FAR HILLS, N.J. (AP) — Ernie Els and Jim Furyk have received a special exemption to play in the U.S. Open this year at Shinnecock Hills on Long Island, New York.
Els is a two-time U.S. Open champion who would have faced qualifying because his five-year exemption from winning the 2012 British Open ran out last year. Els won the U.S. Open at Oakmont in 1994 and at Congressional in 1997. This will be his 29th consecutive U.S. Open.
PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. (AP) — Retief Goosen one-putted the last six holes to win his second U.S. Open title at Shinnecock Hills in 2004. He has not been back to the storied club on Long Island since that day, and he probably won't go back unless he qualifies.
Goosen received a special exemption in 2016 for Oakmont. Chances of another one for this year's major are slim.
"We're begging them," the 49-year-old South African said with a soft laugh.
JOHANNESBURG (AP) — Chris Paisley and Adrien Saddier opened up a big lead after two rounds of the South African Open on Friday as they moved to 13 under par and four shots clear of their nearest challengers.
England's Paisley hit a 7-under 65 to move up from second overnight. France's Saddier had the round of the day at Glendower Golf Club in Johannesburg, a blistering, course record-equaling 63 with an eagle, seven birdies and no bogeys.
An era of dominance in the majors ended the last time the British Open was at Royal Birkdale, even if nobody knew it.
Tiger Woods piled up so many majors so quickly that when he had knee surgery following his 2008 U.S. Open victory at Torrey Pines and had to sit out the last two majors, a few wags suggested that the next name engraved on the claret jug should include an asterisk.
MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — Matt Every, Scott Brown, Stewart Cink and Sebastian Munoz each shot 6-under 64s on Thursday to share the lead after one round at the St. Jude Classic.
Charl Schwartzel and Matt Jones were each one stroke back at the final tuneup before the U.S. Open.
Two-time U.S. Open champion Retief Goosen and Chez Reavie each shot a 66 on the par-70 TPC Southwind course.
Steve Stricker always thought it was a long shot, and he recently was reminded that the USGA is tight when it comes to special exemptions for the U.S. Open.
"I wrote them quite a while back and asked for one, and they politely called me and declined," Stricker said.
