It might not be a major week anymore, but the leaderboard sure looks like it after one round at the 2018 Travelers Championship. Jordan Spieth co-leads with Zach Johnson after a 7-under 63 on Thursday that included six birdies and an eagle. Rory McIlroy is T3 after a 6-under 64 that included seven birdies. Justin Thomas and Jason Day are T9 after firing 5-under 65. Whoooo boy, that's a front page. Spieth and McIlroy didn't go out until the afternoon after they both missed the cut at last week's U.S. Open, but their performances were certainly worth the wait. McIlroy played behind Spieth and birdied four of his first six holes before playing the rest of his round in 2 under to get to 64. Spieth

Brooks Koepka won the U.S. Open for the second year in a row on Sunday, only the seventh golfer in the 123-year history of the U.S. Open to do so, and it was anything but easy.  The wailing wind played havoc with drives as the hard greens, dried from lack of water, sent anything but the perfect putt soaring into the rough.  Shinnecock Hills proved to be a challenge this year and the scores proved it.  In a sport where some tournaments are won by players who hit 20 shots fewer than the course was designed to require, not one golfer ended this Open below par overall, with Koepka coming out on top with a +1.  It was a rough weekend. Throughout the 2018 U.S. Open, plenty of golfers took time to complain

Last Saturday, during the third round at Shinnecock Hills in Southampton, N.Y., Mickelson sent a putt on the 13th green well past the hole.

SEASIDE, Calif. (AP) — Ryan Vermeer won the PGA Professional Championship on Wednesday, overcoming front-nine problems to top the 20 qualifiers for the PGA Championship. The 40-year-old Vermeer, the director of instruction at Happy Hollow Club in Omaha, Nebraska, closed with a 1-over 73 on the Bayonet Course for a two-stroke victory over Sean McCarty and Bob Sowards. The PGA Championship is in August at Bellerive in St. Louis. Vermeer played the front in 4 over with a double-bogey on the par-4 second and bogeys on the par-4 seventh and par-4 eighth. He rebounded with birdies on the par-5 10th and par-4 11th and also birdied the par-5 18th. Vermeer finished at 5-under 283. The former University

NEW YORK — Peter Thomson, the Australian who won five British Opens and became the only player in the 20th century to win that major three consecutive years, died Wednesday in Melbourne, Australia. He was 88. His death was announced by Golf Australia, the sport’s governing body in that country, which said he had been treated for Parkinson’s disease for the past four years. At a time when Australians had made little impact on international golf, Mr. Thomson emerged as a leading player on links far from his homeland, winning the British Open each summer from 1954 to 1956 and again in 1958 and 1965. Mr. Thomson played for only a few seasons in the United States, where courses were more suited to
