Sep. 26, 2020 7:06 PM EDT

PUNTA CANA, Dominican Republic (AP) — Adam Long went from trying to hit a fairway to a course so open it's hard to miss. He went from grinding over pars to pouring in birdies. One week after he toiled to a tie for 13th at Winged Foot in the U.S. Open, Long is loving life in the Caribbean. Long ran off five...

MAMARONECK, N.Y. (AP) — Two moments were key for Bryson DeChambeau winning the U.S. Open. The first one was early in the week, when he played a practice round at Winged Foot with Phil Mickelson.

Johnson unable to keep momentum going at U.S. Open

Sep. 20, 2020 6:43 PM EDT

Dustin Johnson arrived at Winged Foot playing better golf than arguably anyone in the world. A balky putter cost him any shot at a second U.S. Open title. Unable to get much going from the start, Johnson closed out his tournament with a even-par 70 on Sunday in final round. He finished tied for sixth at 5 over,...

Sep. 19, 2020 9:23 PM EDT

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...

California cool, Matthew Wolff takes detour to US Open lead

Sep. 19, 2020 8:44 PM EDT

MAMARONECK, N.Y. (AP) — Matthew Wolff is playing his first U.S. Open and carving his own path. That starts with shots he gouges out of the rough.

Even without hostile NY crowds, this US Open is tough enough

Sep. 19, 2020 9:12 AM EDT

It’s rare when fans wind up rooting for the golf course, even one as majestic as Winged Foot, but suddenly that’s a viable option. Maybe because the two players atop the leaderboard heading into Round 3 at the U.S. Open are not exactly — how to put this? — the most likeable guys in the...

Sep. 18, 2020 9:28 PM EDT

MAMARONECK, N.Y. (AP) — Gary Woodland waited 15 months to return to the U.S. Open as defending champion and it turned into a miserable week before he even arrived. Woodland shot another 74 on Friday and appeared certain to miss the cut. What bothered him more than his score was a tear in his left labrum...
