Collin Morikawa tapped in for par to become the champion golfer of the year, and that meant 263 days until the words, “Fore, please,” introduced the next major at Augusta National.
SANDWICH, England (AP) — LEADING: Louis Oosthuizen (65) set the British Open record for 36 holes at 129 and leads by two shots.
TRAILING: Collin Morikawa (64) is at 131
LURKING: Jordan Spieth (67) was three shots behind, followed by a group that includes Dustin Johnson (65).
SANDWICH, England (AP) — Louis Oosthuizen set a 36-hole record at the British Open and is halfway to ending that run of near misses at the majors.
Now all he has to do is hold off a cast of major champions on the weekend at Royal St.
One of Dustin Johnson's best traits is a short memory, and given some of the misfortune he's had in the majors, he needs it.
So don't expect him to return to Royal St. George's for the British Open this week and remember too much beyond being a runner-up to Darren Clarke in 2011.
SANDWICH, England (AP) — A brief look at the British Open, which starts Thursday:
The Masters green jacket had been in his possession for just over three weeks and Dustin Johnson already was looking ahead at more major titles.
U.S. Open champion. Masters champion. Two-time major champion.
A capsule look at the previous 14 times the British Open was at Royal St. George’s in Sandwich, England:
HIGHLIGHTS FROM RIO: Inbee Park of South Korea had not faced top competition in two months because of a thumb injury and was under pressure to give up her spot to another player for powerhouse South Korea.
Dustin Johnson was never going to the Olympics. Justin Thomas was never going to miss them. And then there was Patrick Cantlay, who didn't have a choice.
No one really asked Cantlay for his outlook on the Olympics even as he returned to the top 10 in the world by winning the Memorial for his second victory of the PGA Tour season.
Four of the top 10 men in the world golf ranking are not going to Japan for the Olympics, only one of them by choice.
The 60-man field was set Tuesday based on the world ranking with a half-dozen late withdrawals, a list that included U.S.
SAN DIEGO (AP) — Here are the courses that held a PGA Tour event and a major championship in the same year. Only two rounds were played at Pebble Beach and three rounds on the South Course at Torrey Pines for PGA Tour events:
RIDGELAND, S.C. (AP) — Garrick Higgo won the Palmetto Championship at Congaree for his first PGA Tour victory Sunday when leader Chesson Hadley blew a two-shot lead with bogeys on his final three holes.
RIDGELAND, S.C. (AP) — Chesson Hadley moved a step closer to his first PGA Tour victory in seven years, opening a four-stroke lead over Harris English and six over Dustin Johnson on Sunday in the rain-delayed Palmetto Championship at Congaree.
RIDGELAND, S.C. (AP) — Chesson Hadley is off to his best start on the PGA Tour since 2016, shooting a 5-under 66 on Friday for a two-stroke lead over Dustin Johnson in the Palmetto Championship at Congaree.
Carlos Ortiz was so tired from playing 30 holes in one day at the rain-soaked Memorial that he plopped down on the seat of a golf cart. Before long, he remembered to pull out his phone to check the scores.
RIDGELAND, S.C. (AP) — Dustin Johnson got off to a fast start Thursday at Congaree in his home-state Palmetto Championship, shooting a 6-under 65 that left him a shot behind leader Wes Roach.
Johnson, the world's top-ranked player and a South Carolina native, hadn't played since missing the cut the last time he teed it up in the Palmetto State at the PGA Championship on Kiawah Island last month.
KIAWAH ISLAND, S.C. (AP) — A brief look at Friday's second round of the PGA Championship at Kiawah Island (all times EDT):
LEADING: Phil Mickelson and Louis Oosthuizen at 5-under 139. Mickelson shot a 3-under 69 in the morning and Oosthuizen had a 68 in the afternoon.
KIAWAH ISLAND, S.C. (AP) — Both Ryder Cup captains — combined age: 103 — made the cut at the PGA Championship. Three of the top four players in the world did not.
Even though 5-over 149 through 36 holes was good enough to play the weekend at Kiawah Island, top-ranked Dustin Johnson couldn't manage it.
Opening Day at the PGA Championship essentially wound up a draw.
Good shots were rewarded, bad ones predictably punished and the Ocean Course -- reliably backed up by stiff breezes off the Atlantic -- came out of it looking like anything but a pushover.
