the US Open:

    Prince Harry last night left the door open to taking up US citizenship by saying he would not be eligible to vote in 'this' presidential election.  'This election, I'm not going to be able to vote here in the US,' the Duke of Sussex said, adding that he had never voted in Britain either because convention dictates that the royal family keep out of politics.  Harry's remark leaves open the possibility that he could seek to vote in a future election in the US, which would likely require him to obtain a 'green card' and stay in America for at least three years. Meghan and Harry have commented more openly on politics since quitting frontline royal duties earlier this year,...
    Paige Spiranac will give credit where it is due. On Sunday, Spiranac congratulated Bryson DeChambeau on his US Open win, less than two months after the “Playing A Round” podcast host chastised the 26-year-old golfer’s behavior. “It’s fun to give Bryson s–t at times but you have to give him so much credit for sticking to his guns despite all the hate and now he gets to call himself a US Open Champion. Well deserved win,” Spiranac tweeted. DeChambeau, whose physical transformation has become one of golf’s biggest storylines this season, scored his first major championship win on Sunday at the Winged Foot Golf Club. He finished 6-under par to cruise to a six-shot victory that he called “surreal.” “It’s...
    Promising, whining, and gnashing of teeth that the end of this US Open will be more of an entertainment feature than the final stages of the 120th edition. Bryson DiCambo is a big winner. He has many US Open Titles like Tom Watson and Gary Blair, which is one more than Chevroletor and Nick Falto. The professor is not so cruel after all. In fact, he may have changed golf form within four rounds of competition. History will show that in the fourth round of the generally brutal US Open, DiCambo banged on the wing foot. His 67 and six-under total ensured a half-dozen stroke victory over Matthew Wolf. The 27-year-old DiCambo was the only player to equal the fourth...

    MAMORANECK, N.Y. (AP) — A look at the key hole Sunday in the final round of the U.S. Open: HOLE: 11. YARDAGE: 365. PAR: 4. STROKE AVERAGE: 3.92. RANK: 15. KEY FACT: Matthew Wolff was two shots behind and in the fairway when he hit a poor wedge to the right rough and had to scramble for par. Bryson DeChambeau was in the right rough, didn’t quite reach the green with a front pin and used putter from 15 feet away for a birdie and a three-shot lead. Wolff never got closer.

    Now that’s what you call having the last laugh. Bryson DeChambeau, the man ridiculed for putting on three stones in weight, the player laughed at for thinking he could bully Winged Foot, is the new US Open Champion. The 27 year old American claimed his first major championship in astonishing style with the only round under par all day, demolishing the most difficult course on the US Open rota and everyone else in the field in the process. The final victory margin over Matt Wolff was no fewer than six shots following a brilliant 67, as he broke the spirit of the 21 year old over the back nine. No disgrace in that for Wolff, of course, who put in...

    Matthew Wolff is on the verge of making history at the U.S. Open on Sunday as one of the youngest golfers ever to win one of golf’s four majors. The second-year pro with an unorthodox swing surged to the top of the leaderboard on Saturday after beginning the round four strokes off the lead. By the end of the day, he was in sole possession of first place, going 5-under for the day after carding a 5-under 65 with six birdies (including five in the front nine). Wolff will attempt to hold off several golfers as they vie for his lead; chief among them is Bryson DeChambeau and Louis Oosthuizen, the only two golfers with an under-par score at...
    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...

Barrika’s has definitively sunk (+10) in a field that he could only face on the first...
    Matthew Wolff can carve his name into golfing history on Sunday after the 21-year-old took the third round lead at the US Open after a brilliant five-under-par 65 at Winged Foot. The American can become the first player to win the US Open on his debut in the major since amateur Francis Ouimet in 1913 and the first professional to achieve the feat. He would also be the youngest US Open champion since the legendary Bobby Jones in 1923 and match the achievement of Jordan Spieth, who claimed the coveted crown as a 21-year-old in 2015. Wolff finished in a share of fourth in last month’s PGA Championship behind Collin Morikawa and is confident he can make the step...

    MAMARONECK, N.Y. (AP) — The Latest from the third round of the U.S. Open, golf’s second major of the year (all times local): ___ 12:45 p.m. The leaders at the U.S. Open are still two hours away from teeing off and already have a pretty good idea of what to expect at Winged Foot if they’re watching on TV. 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? Typical for a U.S. Open at Winged Foot. Troy Merritt was wrapping up his third round...
    Every shot required full attention. Every hole was a test. Every par was valued. Patrick Reed embraced every aspect of it Friday when the U.S. Open lived up to its reputation as the toughest test in golf, and so did Winged Foot. “I love the grind,” Reed said, barely unable to contain a grin. CLICK HERE FOR MORE SPORTS COVERAGE ON FOXNEWS.COM From the bunker, he twice saved par. From ankle-deep rough behind the green to back pins, he walked off with two more pars. Throw in five birdies to offset the inevitable mistakes, and Reed had an even-par 70 that gave him a one-shot lead going into a U.S. Open that feels as though it's just getting started. “It’s...
    By DOUG FERGUSON, AP Golf Writer MAMARONECK, N.Y. (AP) — This was the Winged Foot everyone has heard about. This is the U.S. Open everyone expected. Patrick Reed answered the first big test Friday when the wind arrived out of the north, bringing a little chill and a lot of trouble. He never got flustered by bogeys and made enough birdie putts and key saves for an even-par 70. It felt just as rewarding as the 66 he shot in the opening round, and it gave him a one-shot lead over muscleman Bryson DeChambeau, who powered and putted his way to a 68. The opening round featured soft greens, a few accessible pins and 21 rounds under par. Friday was...

    Gary Woodland was hoping a return to the US Open this week as defending champion could give him some renewed energy and get his game back on track. But he may need a little more help to cure what’s actually been ailing him: a torn labrum in his hip. Woodland revealed he has been playing through the injury Friday after shooting a 4-over-par 74 at Winged Foot to drop to 8-over through two rounds. The 2019 US Open champion is expected to miss the cut, which should give his hip some rest before he visits a specialist on Monday. “I’ve got a lot of pain in there, and I’ve been fighting through it, but it gets to a point...

    It was only one round, but it was a record-setting one for Justin Thomas. Thomas seized the early lead at the 120th U.S. Open on Thursday at venerable Winged Foot with a 5-under-par 65 on a golf course many expected would yield very few rounds below par this week with the fairways narrow and the rough ankle-deep. Thomas’ 65 was the lowest score ever posted in the six US Opens played at Winged Foot. “Yeah, 65 is fun no matter where you play, especially at Winged Foot,” he said. “It’s one of the best rounds I’ve played in a while tee to green. I was in a really good frame of mind and I was focused. I just was...

    Phil Mickelson plays a practice round ahead of the 2020 U.S. Open. Danielle Parhizkaran-USA TODAY Sports Phil Mickelson has never won a U.S. Open, but he's come in second six times at the tournament. This year, one brave bettor placed a $45,000 wager on Mickelson to win at 75/1. The bet would win $3.3 million if it comes through.

    President Donald Trump is a member at Winged Foot Golf Club in New York, where the U.S. Open is being contested this week. It’s a notoriously tough layout — but Trump is claiming he routinely scores well enough that he probably should have entered the tournament. Appearing on Fox Sports Radio Thursday morning, the president was asked by host Clay Travis what his best score has been on the supremely difficult track. “Low 70s, quite a bit,” Trump replied. “I’ve been a member there a long time. I could do pretty well.” Par at Winged Foot is 70. Geoff Ogilvy, who won the U.S. Open the last time it was played at Winged Foot in 2006, shot rounds of 71,...
    Tiger Woods is back on the golf course after a disappointing end to the 2020 FedEx Cup playoffs, in which he exited after a a 51st-place finish and 11-over-par score. Now he’ll take to the Winged Foot Golf Course in New York in search of that elusive 83rd PGA Tour event win and 16th major victory. The last time Woods played the US Open on this course is not a happy memory for him: It was six weeks removed from the death of his father. He opened the tournament with a 6-over 76 — his worst-ever start to a major — and registered six bogeys and a double. He ended up missing the cut by three strokes. Sporting News...
    MAMARONECK, N.Y. (AP) — The Latest from the U.S. Open (all times local): 7:30 a.m. Brandon Wu kicked off the 120th U.S. Open with a drive into the right side of the fairway at Winged Foot. That's considered a great start. Hitting fairways is paramount at Winged Foot. For starters, it's tough to advance the ball very far. But the greens are severe, and the bunkers are as much as 8 feet deep. That explains why only two players out of 750 who have started the previous five U.S. Opens at Winged Foot finished under par. Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy will get an early start Thursday, though they begin on opposite ends of the West Course. The opening round...

    The U.S. Open, one of the four major championships in golf, will begin Thursday after being postponed from its original date in June because of the pandemic. The 72-hole tournament, open to both professionals and amateurs, has been held every year since 1895 when it first took place at the Newport Country Club in Newport, R.I. Ironically, the tournament was dominated by British players early on. It wasn’t until 1911 when John J. McDermott became the first American ever to win the championship. This year’s U.S. Open will take place at Winged Foot West Course in Mamaroneck, N.Y., which is famously known as the same course where Phil Mickelson lost his best chance at winning the U.S. Open in 2006. Winged Foot is...

    Golf’s highest-paying major will take place this week. The 2020 U.S. Open features not only the richest purse among golf’s majors, but also the richest winner’s share. The first recipient of that profitable payout is Gary Woodland, who made over $2 million last season by winning the event with a score of 271 (13-under-par). That said, look for golfers such as Dustin Johnson (2020 FedEx Cup playoffs winner), Brooks Koepka (winner of the 2017, ’18 U.S. Opens) and more to challenge for that payout this season. Again, even golfers who finish at the bottom of the cut line will make a pretty penny (by non-golfer standards); last year’s last-place finishers made over $21,000. Below is the full breakdown of...
    The 2020 U.S. Open is set to tee off Thursday at the Winged Foot West course in Mamaroneck, N.Y. The competition is typically scheduled for mid-June, but due to the coronavirus pandemic, the United States Golf Association had to push it back to mid-September. As of 2019, the U.S. Open awards a $12.5 million purse, which is the largest of all four major championships and is tied for the largest of all PGA Tour events (The Players Championship also has a $12.5 million purse). Gary Woodland is the reigning U.S. Open champion, having won his first and only major title last year at Pebble Beach. He is currently ranked 26th in the world and is at 60-1 odds to reclaim his crown. World...
    Tiger Woods sightings have been a bit of a rarity in 2020, but any time there’s a major championship on the line, you can count on the 15-time major champion to make an appearance. Woods has won three US Opens (2000, 2002, 2008) and has only missed the cut three times at this major. He has played in two majors at Winged Foot, the site of this weekend’s tournament, finishing T29 in the 1997 PGA Championship and missing the cut in the 2006 U.S. Open. Despite winning the Masters in 2019, Woods has struggled since returning to the Tour after the pandemic hiatus. In four events he hasn’t finished better than 37th in the PGA Championship, 12 strokes behind the...

    The U.S. Open has a clear favorite to win its 2020 event. Dustin Johnson is the clear favorite to win this event following a monster outing in the 2020 FedEx Cup playoffs, in which he won both The Northern Trust and Tour Championship, but also finished second (by a stroke) in the BMW Championship. He seemed unstoppable as he became the 2019-20 PGA golfer of the year, and he’ll look to continue that incredible run of dominance in the COVID-19-affected season. Of course, there are plenty of golfers who would love to knock him off his perch; likely contenders to do that are Jon Rahm and Justin Thomas, who nipped at Johnson’s heels throughout the playoffs and ended up...

    New York (CNN Business)For American theaters, "Tenet" was supposed to be the film that brought audiences back to the movies. There was just one problem: "Tenet" opened, and hardly anyone showed up.Warner Bros.' new Christopher Nolan spy thriller has made roughly $30 million domestically since opening in North America two weeks ago. That includes two pretty lackluster weekends where the film made about $9.5 million and $6.7 million at the box office. (Warner Bros., like CNN, is owned by WarnerMedia.)For Warner Bros., the news isn't all bad since "Tenet" has performed admirably overseas. The film, which opened internationally in late August, has brought in more than $205 million globally so far. However, for domestic theaters, "Tenet's" rough start puts a...

    THE second Major of the season is upon us - and it promises to be a cracker at brutal Winged Foot. Colin Montgomerie and Phil Mickelson threw away golden chances to win when the game's toughest tournament was last held at this New York course in 2006. 1 Straight-hitting scramble artist Geoff Ogilvy prevailed that week, showcasing some amazing skill around the greens.
