Moriya Jutanugarn overcame a poor start and birdied the 18th for a hard-earned 1-under 70 to tie Jin Young Ko at 9 under on Saturday going into the final round of the HUGEL-JTBC LA Open. Ko shot a 66 at Wilshire Country Club in her bid to become the year's first two-time winner on the LPGA Tour. She won the Women's Australian Open in February, her first victory as an official tour member. Jutanugarn is trying to match younger sister Ariya as a tour champion. Seven-time winner Ariya was tied for 27th after a 72 in the third round. Hall of Famer Inbee Park was two shots back in third after a 69. Her birdie putt for a share of the lead on 18 slid just by the hole. Moriya Jutanugarn's round included

Welcome to the Dew Sweeper, your one-stop shop to catch up on the weekend action from the golf world. Until Sunday, Andrew Landry was best known for his out-of-nowhere run at the 2016 U.S. Open. With a near-flawless display in San Antonio, the 30-year-old proved he's far more than a one-week wonder.

ESPN New York Mets outfielder Yoenis Cespedes wants to swing his way out of an early season slump, but with his golf clubs rather than his bat. "One of the things that I did before, years ago, when I was in a slump, was playing golf and trying to get out of my slump," Cespedes told reporters through an interpreter after Friday's 5-3 win against the Atlanta Braves. "I said this season I wouldn't go to play golf. So one of the things that I'm doing now, that I didn't do before, is watching the videos. That's something different I'm doing right now. But unfortunately, it's not going too well so far." Cespedes and the Mets took some backlash for his golf habit in 2016, when he played 18 holes hours

Sergio Garcia most definitely plays with passion, and that can boil over. There was the time last year he slammed his putter and took it out of play at TPC Boston. That came just months after the Spaniard hurt himself swinging in frustration at gorse. Add another one to the tally. Here’s Garcia chucking his driver during Friday’s second round at the Valero Texas Open: First off, and there’s truly no snark here, that was an impressively smooth toss. But otherwise, this was a messy situation. Apparently, Garcia tossed his offending club so deep into the bushes that it took almost a minute to find. Then, Garcia hit a horrible chip shot for his second. Despite his driver reaction, he was just left

7-year-old Tommy Morrissey swung by Little Big Shots on Sunday to show of his golf skills. Morrissey was born with only one fully developed arm, but that hasn’t stopped him from succeeding in the sport he loves. Morrissey said he started playing golf at the age of one.

A win is a win, so Akshay Bhatia will gladly add the Junior Invitational at Sage Valley to a résumé that already includes the Junior PGA Championship and first-team AJGA Rolex All-American honors. Lucky for Bhatia, he had built a four-stroke lead so the late stumbles. “I told myself all day that I’m still in control of this golf tournament no matter how many bogeys I made,” said Bhatia, who started the day up by four strokes on his nearest competitor.

Matthew Sughrue helped the U.S. defeat the Great Britain & Ireland team in the Concession Cup. BRADENTON, Fla. – Peter McEvoy wasn't inclined to make excuses. The captain of the Great Britain & Ireland team in the Concession Cup, McEvoy had just watched his squad battle valiantly but all too much in vain against a loaded United States squad, and the outcome was as predictable as it was emphatic, a 23 ½ to 4 ½ American victory at The Concession Golf Club that kept the Sir Michael Bonallack and William Campbell Trophy in American hands for another two years.

Brooks Koepka will return to the PGA Tour next week at the Zurich Classic following three months on the shelf to let a wrist injury heal. Koepka, who will defend his U.S. Open title in June, has not played anywhere since finishing last at the Sentry Tournament of Champions in January and shooting all four rounds at 74 or worse.  Koepka told the Associated Press that he did not touch a club for 91 days and was even in a soft cast for a while because of a partially torn tendon (Koepka initially struggled to get a proper diagnosis on the injury). "It was torn a lot worse than they originally thought," Koepka told the AP. "The ligaments that hold the tendon in place were gone. Every time I went to

Kirk Triplett felt like the odd man out for much of the final round at the Bass Pro Shops Legends of Golf at Big Cedar Lodge. Teamed with Paul Broadhurst in the PGA Tour Champions event, Triplett couldn’t seem to get a birdie putt to fall while playing four-balls on the Par-3 Top of the Rock course. “I was the glue guy all week, just trying to make pars,” Triplett said.
