Carnoustie a challenge for Open field

CARNOUSTIE, Scotland (AP) The eve of the British Open felt like cramming for a final exam, a multiple choice one with no obvious answers.

The wind that blows off the North Sea across the exposed links of Carnoustie has not been the primary concern during practice rounds. Players have a reasonable idea how far the ball travels in the air. They just don't know how far it goes on the ground.

"If you get it downwind and you hit that little flat draw and it gets running, it will go pretty much until it runs into something," Justin Thomas said.


Older, richer McIlroy back at Carnoustie

CARNOUSTIE, Scotland (AP) Rory McIlroy was an 18-year-old with big head of curls and a big game to match when he teed it up as an amateur in his first British Open at Carnoustie in 2007.

Carefree and unafraid, he played the first round without making a bogey and went on to win the silver medal as low amateur. Soon he would turn pro, and anyone who knows golf knows how well the story has unfolded since. Read More...

Knox giddy over Open pairing with Woods

CARNOUSTIE, Scotland (AP) Getting into the British Open was a reward in itself for Russell Knox. And then it got better.

Lincicome chasing history on PGA Tour

NICHOLASVILLE, Ky. (AP) Brittany Lincicome has every reason to be nervous as she chases history.

The eight-time LPGA Tour winner hopes to knock out the jitters over first few holes at the PGA Tour's Barbasol Championship and play well enough from there to stick around through the weekend. If she were to make the cut, Lincicome would achieve something that only Babe Zaharias has done against male competitors. Read More...

Woods: Open my best shot at major win

CARNOUSTIE, Scotland (AP) Tiger Woods doesn't feel as old at the oldest championship in golf.

Back at the British Open for the first time in three years, Woods broke from his tradition on Tuesday morning. Instead of being among the first on the tee for practice, he didn't show up at Carnoustie until his news conference just before lunch. Then, he played nine holes with Masters champion Patrick Reed and Bryson DeChambeau. Read More...

Rose doesn't understand poor Open record

CARNOUSTIE, Scotland (AP) It's been 20 years since Justin Rose, his slight frame shrouded by a baggy red sweater, holed out for eagle to secure a tie for fourth place at the British Open.

He was just a kid then -a 17-year-old amateur seemingly with the golfing world at his feet - but it remains his best finish at his home major. Read More...
