Julianne Alvarez had a 5-foot par putt on the 18th hole to give Washington its first NCAA golf title, a big moment for a freshman. It felt even bigger when she missed, sending another match against Stanford to extra holes. ''She walked off and said, 'I'm sorry,''' Washington coach Mary Lou Mulflur said.

SMU teammates Ben Baxter and Andrew Buchanan won the U.S. Amateur Four-Ball Championship on Wednesday, beating Brandon Cigna and Ben Warnquist 3 and 2 at Winged Foot. The 20-year-old Baxter, from Flower Mound, Texas, and 21-year-old Buchanan, from Los Altos, California, entered the tournament with SMU was barred from postseason play for one year because of violations. ''This is kind of a replacement for NCAAs and it turned out to be a much better replacement than we could have imagined,'' Buchanan said.

The race to Rio is playing out all over the globe with athletes competing for coveted spots. On the LPGA Tour, the competition among a slew of talented South Korean players to compete in Olympic golf this summer is particularly intense. Ha Na Jang is No. 9 in the world ranking, but trails four fellow South Koreans: No. 2 Inbee Park, No. 4 Sei Young Kim, No. 7 In Gee Chun and No. 8 Amy Yang.

Fresh off a landmark victory, Bernhard Langer tries to enter a league of his own at the Senior PGA Championship. Nicklaus was the first to win the Senior Grand Slam - it took him all of two years to win all four after he turned 50 in 1990 - but he had largely retired when the Senior British Open was added to the major rotation. Nicklaus only played that once in its first year as a major in 2003.

Jordan Spieth was the Masters champion with another victory and a couple of runner-up finishes when he got to Colonial last year, a few weeks before winning the U.S. Open. This time at Hogan's Alley, at the tournament now known as the Dean & Deluca Invitational, Spieth arrives with one win and his only runner-up finish this season coming after he squandered a five-stroke lead on the back nine when trying to defend his title at Augusta. Spieth is still home for the back half of this Texas two-step and a few weeks away from the U.S. Open.

(Reuters) - Strong winds forecast for this week's Colonial tournament in Fort Worth, Texas have put a smile on the face of U.S. Open champion Jordan Spieth who believes he will benefit from the challenge at Colonial Country Club. Spieth struggled with his swing at last week's AT&T Byron Nelson, fading into a tie for 18th after trailing by just two shots heading into the final round, but feels his game can only improve with a more imaginative approach in gusty conditions. "Given the forecast, it's going to take a lot of imagination," American Spieth told reporters on Wednesday while preparing for Thursday's opening round.
