at Winged Foot:

    Call him a mad scientist in a tam o’shanter cap. Call him a game-changer in golf. Any description of Bryson DeChambeau now starts with U.S. Open champion. In a breathtaking performance Sunday at Winged Foot, on a course so demanding no one else broke par, DeChambeau blasted away with his driver and had short irons from the ankle-deep rough on his way to a 3-under 67. When his 7-foot par putt fell on the 18th, DeChambeau thrust those two powerful arms into the air. This was validation that his idea to add 40 pounds of mass, to produce an incredible amount of speed and power, would lead to moments like this. Two shots behind Matthew Wolff going into the final...

    MAMARONECK, N.Y. (AP) — The Latest from the final round of the U.S. Open, golf’s second major of the year (all times EDT): ___ 1:35 p.m. It was an ugly start to the final round for Rory McIlroy and Harris English. McIlroy needed four putts from just off the front of the first green en route to a double bogey. English hit an errant tee shot and, even with the help of marshals surrounding the fairway, could not find his ball in the three-minute limit. He had to go back to the tee box and re-tee, and from there, he also made double. McIlroy is now at 3 over and English is at 2 over. Leader Matthew Wolff is at...

While it’s fun to watch Dustin Johnson go 30 under to win a tournament during the PGA Tour season once in awhile, there’s something to be said about the best in the world struggling to break par.

    He’s the last Am standing. John Pak is not going to win the U.S. Open, but he is going to be standing on the 18th green at Winged Foot late Sunday afternoon for the awards ceremony and he’ll be handed a trophy. Pak, a 21-year-old senior at Florida State who grew up in Scotch Plains, N.J., will have the luxury on Sunday of shooting whatever in the final round, and he’ll still win low amateur at this 120th U.S. Open. That’s because, of the 13 amateurs who qualified into the 144-player field this week, Pak was the only one to make the cut. He wasn’t happy with the 79 he shot in Saturday’s third round, but he’ll always have Thursday,...

    Where have you gone, Jordan Spieth? What happened to the guy who won three major championships before his 22nd birthday, ascended to No. 1 in the world and didn’t seem to have a worry in the world? What happened to the guy who made every important putt he looked at? What happened to the youthful exuberance that used to be painted all over his face? Has anyone seen that Jordan Spieth? No one saw him Saturday at Winged Foot in the third round of the U.S. Open, because he missed the cut Friday by eight shots after shooting 81 in the second round.

Alex Noren is the only player through nine holes who is under par. Temperatures were in the upper 40s when the third round began and are only expected to nudge past 60 degrees Fahrenheit (15 Celsius). The wind isn’t strong, but it’s enough. The scores?

    Tiger Woods has made enough double bogeys in his career to understand anything in golf is possible, especially in the U.S. Open. But two on the same hole with a pair of fluffed chips in successive rounds? That’s a stat that won’t make the cut when it comes time to review Woods’ spectacular career. Woods didn’t make the cut Friday, either, which was surprising only to his most sycophantic fans. His game was spotty coming in, and if he had to play Winged Foot every week of his pro career he might still be looking for his first win. He missed fairways and he missed putts. He likely missed the thousands of fans who would have cheered his every move...
    Tiger Woods is leaving Winged Foot early once again. The hunt for his 16th major championship, and fourth U.S. Open title, ended Friday after Woods shot a 7-over-par 77 in the second round and fell to 10-over-par overall, missing the projected cut of 6-over. Double bogeys on the 16th and 18th holes sent Woods spiraling down the leaderboard before he even made the turn, denying him a chance to pass Sam Snead for the outright lead in all-time PGA Tour victories. For the second straight day, the par-4 18th hole was a nightmare for Woods. His drive there Friday found the bunker and his second shot rolled off the fr ont of the green. It set up a chip...

Friday Round 2, the opening day is expected to include tougher winds, cooler temperatures and firmer greens than we saw.

    Bryson DeChambeau is over Winged Foot. The newly bulked up golfer was caught by a hot mic in a fit of frustration during the end of his US Open first round on Thursday. “These greens suck,” he was apparently heard saying. “They’re so bad.” Despite DeChambeau’s irritation with the greens, he’s in contention after Round 1. He finished with a 1-under 69 and is tied for 14th place. DeChambeau wasn’t the only participant who seemed irked about Winged Foot.

    Tiger Woods hit his opening drive to the center of the first fairway, spun a short iron to 18 feet and just missed his birdie putt, tapping in for an easy par. The rest of his day was an up-and-down scramble punctuated by an ugly double bogey. Unable to take advantage of a relatively tame Winged Foot, Woods had a string of three straight mid-round birdies but dumped a pitch shot on No. 18 to conclude a 3-over 73 Thursday in the opening round of the U.S. Open. Woods finished eight shots behind playing partner Justin Thomas, who’s 17 years younger and held the early lead after shooting 65. “Well, it was a bit of ebb and flow to the...

    MAMARONECK, N.Y. (AP) — The USGA considers this U.S. Open a success even before the opening tee shot, mainly because it’s being played this year at Winged Foot.

In 1973 at Oakmont, Johnny Miller shocked the golf world with a final-round score of 63, the lowest in major championship history, and walked away with the U.S. Open trophy. A year later, the United States Golf Association got its revenge. Woods is one of the few players in the field this week who played the last time the U.S. Open was held here, in 2006. But it’s not a happy memory. He shot 76-76 and missed the cut at 12-over, the first time in his professional career he failed to make the cut in a major championship. That tournament is most remembered for Phil...

And the venue will be one that’s going to separate the survivors from those who crumble amid extremely difficult conditions: Winged Foot Golf Club. Anytime there’s a previous U.S. Open (1974) at a course that earned the moniker “The Massacre at Winged Foot” as the winner (Hale Irwin) finished at 7-over and the cut-line was at 13-over,...

    Only 15 golfers who played in the 2006 U.S. Open at Winged Foot will be back in Mamaroneck to tee off in the 2020 U.S. Open. But the legend of the course, plus a few practice rounds this week, have quickly filled in the rest of the field on the massive challenge they are in for beginning Thursday. “I’m not going into this week scared of Winged Foot, [but] it is probably the hardest golf course I’ve ever played, I think,” world No. 3 Justin Thomas said Tuesday. “Tee to green, the rough, the greens, everything factored in, I think this is the hardest course I’ve played.” The average score at Winged Foot for the 2006 U.S. Open was 74.99...
    First-time fatherhood has suited Rory McIlroy. He has doted on daughter Poppy in the two weeks since she was born, and he felt the pang of having to leave her and wife Erica to prepare for this week’s U.S. Open. He’s also embraced the sleepless nights, even diaper duty. “I’ve got my hands dirty, put it that way,” McIlroy said Tuesday at Winged Foot. McIlroy is hoping to do the same this week during what figures to be a brutal test. Still one of golf’s best, the 31-year-old is attempting to end a lengthy — at least for him — drought at the majors. Since winning the 2014 PGA Championship for his fourth career major, McIlroy has gone 0 for...
    MAMARONECK, N.Y. (AP) — The older he gets, the more difficult it gets for Tiger Woods. He is one victory away from setting the PGA Tour career record, and it’s been that way since January. Every major he plays this year is a chance to tie the mark for the most titles in each one. He missed out on a fifth PGA Championship victory last month. He goes for No. 4 in the U.S. Open this week at Winged Foot. He gets a shot at a sixth green jacket at the Masters in November. “I think it gets harder to win as we all age,” Woods responded to a query about records getting harder to achieve the closer a player...

Winged Foot has been waiting through the COVID-19 postponement, moving the 2020 U.S. Open from June to this week. Winged Foot has been waiting while the 13 PGA Tour tournaments since the restart of its season following a three-month pandemic pause have delivered winners with an average winning score of 17.5 under par.

    It was Friday the 13th, and the world was about to change in ways no one could imagine. That was the day the PGA Tour — hours before the second round of its signature event, The Players Championship — hastily shut down its 2020 season as COVID-19 was spreading faster than the California wildfires. At that moment back in March, the golf world, sports world and the world in general had no idea what was ahead. Playing a U.S. Open at Winged Foot, which is located just a few miles from one of the first major COVID-19 outbreaks in the U.S., New Rochelle, did not seem like even a remote possibility. Yet here we are this week, with the U.S....

    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) – Now it comes down to the Masters to determine if any of golf’s majors will have fans this year. A week before the PGA Championship begins without spectators, the U.S. Open announced Wednesday it would not have fans Sept. 17-20 at Winged Foot in New York because of health and safety concerns from the COVID-19 pandemic. “We will miss the excitement of the fans and what their presence brings to the championship,” said Mike Davis, CEO of the USGA.
