CROMWELL, Conn. – Brian Harman has moved on. He’s not fixated on his major near-miss last week at the U.S. Open, the final-round 72 that dropped him into a tie for second, or even his victory last month at the Wells Fargo Championship. When the left-hander teed off early Thursday at the Travelers Championship those chapters were closed, and he immediately began a new phase. “I put all that to bed,” Harman said. “Once the tournament's over with, it's over with for me. Obviously I would have loved to have won last week but my focus is on this week and trying to play well.” To prove the point, Harman birdied his first two holes on Day 1 at TPC River Highlands, turned in 2 under, and opened his closing

CROMWELL, Conn. – Rory McIlroy’s putter may have secured itself a reprieve. The Northern Irishman, who missed the cut last week at the U.S. Open after being sidelined with an injury since The Players in May, conceded on Thursday at the Travelers Championship that he wanted to give his current putter one more week to “see how it performed.” Although he took 30 putts and lost about a stroke to the field on the greens, McIlroy took solace in a round of 67 that left him tied for 10th when he completed his day. “It's nothing to do with the putter. It's mostly what I'm doing with it,” said McIlroy, who spoke with putting coach Phil Kenyon on Monday. “If I keep working on stuff and working on the right

CROMWELL, Conn. – Jordan Spieth was cruising along at the Travelers Championship at 3 under par when he stepped to the sixth tee. Just as Spieth, Brandt Snedeker and Wesley Bryan were preparing to hit the crowd behind the tee box began to stir. “A lady fainted and then obviously we were going to wait, our officer was right on top of it, and then the guy that was walking with us was on top of getting the paramedics involved, and she ended up being OK,” said Spieth, who opened with a 63 for a one-stroke lead. “We obviously were hoping she was going to be OK. And then wanted to be appropriate on how we went through the rest of our hole.” Spieth said this is the second time in a month someone in

CROMWELL, Conn. – Anirban Lahiri has covered the emotional spectrum this week at the Travelers Championship, following his opening 73 with a 63 on Friday that moved him to 4 under par. For most players, those kinds of swings can be difficult. But then Lahiri isn’t most players. Following his runner-up finish at the Memorial a few weeks ago, Lahiri spent 12 days at the Dhamma Dhara Vipassana Meditation Center in Shelburne Falls, Mass. For nine of those days, he did not speak. “You go to the center for 10 days, you switch your phones off. There is no TV, you're not allowed to read,” said Lahiri, who has gone through the Vipassana program three times since 2004. “You're meditating. You're not allowed

NEW YORK-Adam Scott was among the pro golfers who wondered if the USGA creating punishing conditions at the U.S. Open was the right thing to do, especially when "thinking about the bigger picture of the game of golf," as he said the week before, via Golfweek. So how did he feel about the 2017 U.S. Open, which featured a winning score of 16-under for Brooks Koepka and so many players with low scores? "I don't think it hurt anything," he told For The Win at Manhattan's Chelsea Piers while promoting his new Uniqlo golfwear line. "People will probably say, it wasn't the U.S. Open. I think it's a little unfair to say that. I don't think it's hurt anything. I don't think anything brilliant and revolutionary

The Chicago golf course that Tiger Woods is set to design has now taken greater shape. As the Chicago Tribune reports, a Wednesday-night gathering at a Chicago cultural center revealed to community members specifics of this planned design. It was announced in December that Woods was to be lead designer on a project that entailed the shaping of two long-standing Chicago courses – Jackson Park and South Shore – into one premium venue that could one day host a PGA Tour event. On Wednesday, that future venue came into greater focus. TGR Design President Bryon Bell and senior design consultant Beau Welling were on hand to discuss the plan for the Woods layout, which was revealed to be a 7,354-yard

Frank "Sandy" Tatum, one of golf's greatest ambassadors and a former USGA president, died Thursday at age 96. Tatum served on the USGA executive committee from 1972-80 and he was president from '78-'79. At the 1974 U.S. Open – nicknamed "The Massacre at Winged Foot" – Tatum defended the brutal setup with his infamous quote: “Our objective is not to humiliate the best players in the world," Tatum said. “We’re simply trying to identify who they are.” Hale Irwin won the tournament with a score of 7 over par. "All of us at the USGA are deeply saddened by the passing of truly one of the great individuals ever involved with golf," said Mike Davis, the USGA's executive director. "Sandy Tatum certainly
