    Air Force veteran aims to calm violence and help young victims in her community Chain restaurants in bad financial shape Opinion: Bryson DeChambeau’s U.S. Open win clinches it — golf rules need to be changed Bryson DeChambeau admires the late, great Ben Hogan, so he must know that the 1951 U.S. Open was played on the South Course at Oakland Hills Country Club, known as “The Monster.” In ’51, Hogan posted a 3-under-par 67 on Sunday — a remarkable score under the circumstances. © Provided by Golfweek U.S. Open It was the lowest round of the week. It was one of only two sub-par rounds in the championship. With it, Hogan claimed his third U.S. Open title and the...

    MAMARONECK, N.Y. (AP) — What was supposed to be a typical U.S. Open produced a most unconventional champion. Bryson DeChambeau was not the least bit concerned by the narrow fairways or the ankle-deep rough that shape Winged Foot into historically the toughest of all U.S. Opens. With his extra 40 pounds of muscle and mass, he wanted to pound it into submission with his driver, even if his errant shots were buried in deep grass. That’s how he plays the game. And for skeptics who said that wouldn’t work in a U.S. Open at Winged Foot, just look at that shiny silver trophy he kissed, and the record score he posted Sunday in a six-shot victory. This victory was as...
    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...
    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): ___ 12:40 p.m. While the leaders are warming up at Winged Foot, the U.S. Open’s lone remaining amateur is done with his round. John Pak, a senior at Florida State who grew up not far from Winged Foot, shot 4-over 74 to finish the tournament at 18-over 298. Matthew Wolff has an afternoon tee time and will start at 5-under par, with a two-shot lead over Bryson DeChambeau on a brisk, breezy day at Winged Foot. The 21-year-old Wolff is trying to become the youngest U.S. Open winner since Bobby Jones in 1923. DeChambeau is hoping to...

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. That struggle was beautifully captured all week by multiple photographers out on the course at Winged...
    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,...
    Matthew Wolff deserved some cheers for the way he picked apart Winged Foot on Saturday afternoon to move into the lead of the U.S. Open. Patrick Reed and Bryson DeChambeau deserved something, too, and rowdy New York fans would have been sure to give it to them had they been allowed to be there to watch. They weren’t, of course, and the Open suffered because of it. So, likely, did the TV ratings, which already figured to take a hit because Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson were long gone. No stars. No buzz. No fun, unless you like watching scenes of players studying maps on the greens like they were preparing for the invasion of Normandy. “It’s like a zombie...
    The 25 most memorable fictional TV towns Americas oldest general stores No fairways, no problem as DeChambeau continues to overpower Winged Foot MAMARONECK, N.Y. – Bryson DeChambeau has remained aggressive at the U.S. Open, despite hitting just 17 of 42 fairways through three rounds. He’s also remained in the hunt, at 3 under par and just two shots behind front-runner Matthew Wolff. © Provided by Golf Channel Although most contend hitting fairways is crucial at Winged Foot that hasn’t been the case for DeChambeau. Asked how many times this week he’s ended up with a lie that required he simply hack out to the fairway, his answer was surprising. “I had one on [No.] 1, second round. I had to...
    Rory McIlroy believes he can challenge for the U.S. Open title on Sunday, saying a third-round 68 has given him “a pretty good shot.” The Northern Irishman began on Thursday with a 3-under 67 but turned his numbers around in the second round when a 76 looked to have scuppered his hopes. On Saturday, moving day at Winged Foot, McIlroy had three birdies and just one dropped shot in the kind of solid performance he would sign for again in the final round. Four-time major winner McIlroy, who was 22 years old when he won the 2011 U.S. Open, was back on the leaderboard. On a course where American Matthew Wolff, just 21, was setting the pace, McIlroy was...

    With just three golfers playing below par the previous day, the odds of anyone carding a 30 on the back nine Saturday at treacherous Winged Foot appeared slim. Englishman in New York Paul Casey certainly would not have pegged himself as the one to post that crazy closing score, especially after bogeying five of the first seven holes in the third round of the U.S. Open. “Yeah, in all honesty I kind of wanted to walk in after the first five, six, seven holes. It was just ugly,” Casey said after finishing the roller-coaster day at 1-under 69 and 5-over for the tournament. “In fairness, it was incredibly difficult out there. It was windy this morning. It was cold. “But...
    MAMARONECK, N.Y.

Teeing off early, the Swedish golfer shot a 3-under 67 to reach 3 over for the tournament.

He shot 72-74 the first two rounds and is seven shots behind leader Patrick Reed. ___ 12:45 p.m. The leaders at the U.S. Open are still two hours away from...
    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?

    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.

    Bryson DeChambeau to Winged Foot designer A.W. Tillinghast: “Give me your old-school, narrow, tree-lined, soul-crushing brute that is the West Course and I’ll raise you a 380-yard drive on your 557-yard par-5 ninth hole, leaving me a pitching wedge to the green and one putt for eagle.’’ DeChambeau to the USGA: “Give me your sadistic course setup with your gnarly, sneaker-swallowing rough and your bowling-alley-narrow fairways and I’ll raise you 3-under through 36 holes at the 120th U.S. Open whilst bombing drivers all over your yard.

    And on the second day of the 120th U.S. Open, Winged Foot punched back. One day after the venerable West Course yielded a surprising 21 scores below par in the first round, just three players managed to break par in Friday’s second round. In a span of 24 hours, this championship reset itself back to what it was expected to be in the first place: A grueling bloodbath of bogeys, doubles and “others.’’ So, as it heads into the weekend, the leaderboard that had 21 scores in red numbers after Thursday now has just six players below par. Patrick Reed, with a birdie on his final hole of the day, leads at 4-under after shooting 70 on Friday. Bryson DeChambeau,...

    Phil Mickelson admitted he had played “some of my worst golf” as he tumbled out of the U.S. Open at Winged Foot, scene of surely his biggest golfing nightmare. Fourteen years after he double-bogeyed the 18th to surrender the 2006 U.S. Open to Geoff Ogilvy, when a par would have secured a third straight major, Mickelson failed to make the cut on the same course. Now 50 years old and fresh from a debut on the Champions Tour, Mickelson followed Thursday’s wretched 79 with a more respectable 74 in tough scoring conditions. But at 13 over par he was certain to miss the weekend’s action, and when asked whether he had considered if it might be his final U.S. Open, Mickelson...

    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...

(AP) — The Latest from the U.S. Open (all times EDT): 9:35 a.m. Thomas Pieters made two birdies on the front nine to jump into the lead early on a cool, breezy Day 2 at the U.S. Open. He is at 6-under par, one shot ahead of Justin Thomas, who tees off Friday afternoon. With the entire morning wave on the course, Pieters was one of only six players with a below-par score for the day. Winds are blowing out of the north and the temperature is hovering around 60, setting up what is expected to be a tougher day than Thursday, when Thomas shot the lowest U.S. Open score in history at notoriously difficult...
    (CNN)Winged Foot has a reputation as one of the toughest golf courses on the circuit, but American Justin Thomas made light work of the New York course on Thursday as he took an early lead of five-under at the U.S. Open. That's the highest score any player has carded on the first day of the six previous U.S. Opens at Winged Foot, the world No. 3 finishing one shot clear of Patrick Reed, Thomas Pieters and Matthew Wolff and two clear of Rory McIlroy and Lee Westwood. Thomas, 27, is looking to add to his sole major triumph at the 2017 PGA Championship. "65 is fun no matter where you play, especially at Winged Foot," he told reporters.Thomas set the...
    By JIM LITKE, AP Sports Writer We knew we were in for a treat when Zach Johnson’s birdie putt at No. 1 blew six feet past the flagstick before it gave into gravity, turned 180 degrees and lazily dunked itself. Because you rarely see shots like that outside of miniature golf courses. But that’s a U.S. Open at Winged Foot for you: 7,400-plus yards of slimmed down fairways, flanked by three-months-gnarlier-than-usual rough and a handful of greens that could be covered overnight with asphalt and converted into serviceable skateboard parks by morning. Not coincidentally, the big question heading into Round 1 was whether the century-old course would prove too tough even for the world’s best golfers. The short answer is...

    The powers that be at the USGA tapped into a cool story when the two players with local ties hit the first tee shots Thursday morning. Danny Balin, a 38-year-old White Plains resident and the head pro at Fresh Meadow Country Club on Long Island, struck the first shot on the first tee at 6:50 a.m. And 23-year-old Brandon Wu, who grew up in Scarsdale and played college golf at Stanford, struck the first tee shot on No. 10 at the same time. “When they said ‘Scarsdale, New York,’ my heart skipped a beat,’’ Wu said after shooting a 4-over 74, nine shots behind first-round leader Justin Thomas. “I was pretty excited, and I hit the fairway, so that was...
    All that hype over how tough the U.S. Open can be at Winged Foot. All that history of so many scores over par. Thursday brought a surprise: All those red numbers. Justin Thomas led the way with six birdies and only one bogey from a bad lie in the bunker, finishing with a 25-foot birdie putt that he barely touched for a 5-under 65. It was the lowest score in a U.S. Open at Winged Foot, which is hosting the Open for the sixth time dating to 1929. And it was worth only a one-shot lead over Patrick Reed, Thomas Pieters of Belgium and Matthew Wolff, the 21-year-old Californian making his U.S. Open debut. CLICK HERE FOR MORE SPORTS COVERAGE...
    What was expected to be a bloodbath Thursday at Winged Foot turned out to be nothing more than a warm bath.

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...
    Winged Foot was supposed to be difficult, but no one appears to have told Justin Thomas Thick, penalizing rough and lightning-fast greens? No problem for Justin Thomas so far this week at Winged Foot. Thomas did on Thursday what so many failed to do over the years: make Winged Foot look easy. He shot a five-under 65 in the first round of the 120th U.S. Open, the lowest score ever recorded in a U.S. Open held at this iconic course just north of New York City. The first hole was the most difficult when the tournament was last held here in 2006. Thomas, though, played it perfectly, his approach shot catching the ridge in the center of the green and...
    Patrick Reed’s quest for his first US Open title already has been highlighted by his first hole-in-one at a major tournament.

Reed previously had recorded just one ace in his pro career, at the 2015 Houston Open. Reed’s shot marked the second straight year someone has carded a “1” at the US Open after Rory Sabbatini nailed an ace in 2019 at Pebble Beach. Reed, playing with Jordan Spieth and Hideki Matsuyama in a morning threesome, had posted a double bogey on the fifth hole and a birdie on...

That's considered a great start. Hitting fairways is paramount at Winged Foot. For starters, it's tough to advance the ball very far.
