Best finish in 2013-14 season: Won the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open
Reason to watch: Hard to believe, but this will mark just the 10th start in a major championship for Simpson. His previous nine have yielded one top-10 finish — that famously came in the 2012 U.S. Open at Olympic Club in San Francisco. OK, so we know he has the game to handle U.S. Open conditions.

Best finish in 2013-14 season: Won the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial
Reason to watch: Here’s a little fun fact about the world’s No. 1-ranked player that you may not know and he’d probably prefer to not be reminded about — he’s never once finished inside the top 10 at a U.S. Open.

Woods shot a first-round 1-over 71, thanks to a double bogey on his closing hole Thursday. He is playing with Keegan Bradley and Davis Love III.
We’ll track his progress throughout the day.
No. 7, 461 yards, par 4: Tiger’s tee shot with a fairway wood cuts and cuts but just not quite enough, and he ends up just inches into the intermediate cut of rough. Woods, from the rough and 201 yards out, couldn’t get it all the way to the green, and he is now short-sided and in another batch of thick rough, and there is a bunker between him and the green. Woods hits a very professional shot out of that thick rough … to within about 2 feet from par. Bradley makes birdie to get back to -2, and he is five back. Woods makes par … a good escape. he is even par, seven back. Continue reading →
Jordan Spieth, 19, became the youngest player to win a PGA Tour event in 82 years Sunday. And he did it by surviving a grueling five-hole, sudden-death playoff with defending champion Zach Johnson and David Hearn at the John Deere Classic.
Spieth, who got into the playoff when he holed a bunker shot on the final hole of regulation that he called “the luckiest shot I’ve ever hit in my life,” become the youngest winner since 19-year-old Ralph Guldahl won the Santa Monica Open in 1931.
“I don’t know what I did to deserve all those breaks,” Spieth said.
Spieth holed a 26-inch putt on the 18th green, the fifth playoff hole, for a win and new status. The former Texas star came to the Deere as a special temporary member. He heads to the British Open as a full-fledged PGA Tour member with a two-year exemption. He’s also eligible for the season-ending playoffs. And he collected a first-prize check of $828,000.
