Branden Grace is contending at the BMW PGA Championship thanks in part to a questionable ruling he received during the opening round at Wentworth. Grace opened the European Tour's flagship event with rounds of 68-71, and at 5 under he sits two shots behind Belgium's Thomas Pieters. But he's facing criticism for a free drop he received after his ball plugged into the face of a greenside bunker on the 13th hole Thursday. The South African appeared to be headed for a double bogey, but after digging his feet into the sand he called over European Tour rules official Mark Hill and explained that his feet were touching the rubber sheet at the bottom of the bunker. That prevented him from taking his

Shrugging off fatigue from last week's victory, Bernhard Langer shot a 7-under 65 Thursday to take a two-shot lead in the first round of the Senior PGA Championship. The 59-year-old German could break Jack Nicklaus' record of eight senior majors with a win at Trump National. He tied Nicklaus last week with a five-shot victory at the Regions Tradition. He would also become the first player to win all five of the current senior majors. Langer started with five straight pars on a cool, misty morning before sparse galleries. The start was delayed 80 minutes because of overnight rain that saturated President Donald Trump's already-soft course on the shores of the Potomac River, about 25 miles from

The road back to professional golf will be a long one for Tiger Woods, but he will not be short on support. One of Woods' pals on Tour, Davis Love III, had a similar fusion surgery to repair a disc in his neck years ago, and Love believes Woods can come back from his successfully, according to reporting from Golf Channel's Rex Hoggard. "He's asked about the fusion surgery for years and I told him to talk to Peyton Manning.

Fred Funk, an eight-time winner on the PGA Tour who now plays on the Legends Tour, took issue with a recent column by USA TODAY Sports’ Christine Brennan, and on Friday posted a response on Brennan's column — published Wednesday online — focused primarily on the ties between President Trump and the Senior PGA Championship, which is being played at Trump National Golf Club in Potomac Falls, Va. She quoted Funk from his news conference on Wednesday, touching on his ties to Trump as well as a comment that Brennan wrote was sexist. “I feel like I should be on the ladies tour right now,” Funk said in reference to keeping up with the length of modern golf courses. He then added, “I

FORT WORTH, Texas – A recurring rib injury will keep Rory McIlroy from playing next week’s Memorial. McIlroy skipped this week’s BMW PGA Championship, the European Tour’s flagship event, after the injury resurfaced during The Players earlier this month. Although he tied for 35th at TPC Sawgrass, an MRI revealed that McIroy had suffered a “low-grade response” to the rib injury he suffered earlier in the year. The MRI also showed that he didn’t have any new injuries. McIlroy tied for fourth place last year at Muirfield Village and his manager told Golf Digest his “focus is on getting back to full health for the U.S. Open.”

Jon Rahm was at Colonial during tournament week each of the past two years to accept the Ben Hogan Award that goes to the nation's top college golfer. With his 4-under 66 on Thursday, Rahm was a stroke behind first-round leaders Kelly Kraft, Derek Fathauer and PGA Tour rookie J.T. Poston.

Adopting the spiderman-style crouch to read the greens made famous by Colombian Camilo Villegas on the U.S. Tour, Germany's Max Kieffer powered his way into contention at the BMW PGA Championship on Friday. When he has doubts about the way his putts are shaping, Kieffer leans right down on the turf and stretches out his legs behind him to get a better view of the ball and its ideal path to the hole. "It helps me to see the shape a bit better from down there." The holes must have appeared wide as buckets as Kieffer made a remarkable run on to the leaderboard on the back nine.

Barack Obama's not just on vacation -- he's on the most EPIC vacay, and it's starting to feel like he's rubbing it in your face. Prez 44 was celebrating and grinning Friday all over Scotland's St Andrews Golf Club ... birthplace of the sport he's apparently trying to turn pro in now. Based on his face, we'd say Barack was killing it on the Old Course. He's made a point of hitting the links almost everywhere he's been since leaving office -- starting in Palm Springs and most recently in Italy. Gotta say ... no one in history's done retirement better. Just to run down his passport stamps since January: Virgin Islands, French Polynesia, Italy, Germany, Scotland. PLUS the reported $60 mil he and
