Bruce Brockbank is hoping for perfect weather Sunday in central Oklahoma, while his BYU team stays away from Karsten Creek Golf Club. That way, nobody could say the Cougars enjoyed an advantage in the NCAA Championship. BYU is in the 24-team men’s field for the first time since the national tournament adopted a schedule that included a Sunday round. Because school policy prohibits Sunday activity, the Cougars will be allowed to play Thursday (one day ahead of the field) in what counts as their third round in the 72-hole, stroke-play portion of the event in Stillwater, Okla. As the BYU women’s team did in 2016, the Cougars will tee off one by one Thursday, accompanied by a walking scorer after

The U.S. Open heads to Shinnecock Hills for the fifth time this June, but the historic track has undergone some substantial changes since it last hosted the championship in 2004.

Here's a look at our ranking of U.S. Open picks with current odds from Westgate Las Vegas Superbook (Did you hear the good news?

After sitting at home last week, Charley Hoffman decided it was time for a change. The veteran estimated that he has been using the same version of a Scotty Cameron putter for the last five years, but heading into this week's Fort Worth Invitational he wanted to shake things up.

Country music star Jake Owen talked about his opening round at the 2018 Nashville Golf Open. Jake Owen has performed in front of packed crowds, toured alongside some of the biggest names in country music and has spent years carving out a name for himself as a well-known musician.   But on Thursday afternoon, while competing in the Nashville Golf Open as a sponsor exemption, even an accomplished artist like Owen is susceptible to a few pre-round jitters. "I had some nerves out there," Owen admitted with a smile, shortly after he'd completed his round at the Nashville Golf and Athletic Club in Brentwood. "But, you know, it is what it is."  Many know Owen, a Nashville resident and the 2012 American

Starting in 2009, the powers-that-be in NCAA Division I men’s golf made the wise decision to completely transform their national championship. The individual title would remain a stroke-play affair, but match play would be added to determine the team champion. Since then, the top eight schools in stroke play have advanced to a single elimination bracket, each team’s full five-man roster competing head-to-head.

Golf’s prestige and grandeur were on full display this week at Media Day for the 118th U.S. Open at Shinnecock Hills Golf Course.  The tournament which is 3 weeks away, is a demonstration of high finance, elite competition, and picturesque views. The 2018 U.S. Open will be the 10th played on Long Island and fifth at Shinnecock Hills Golf Club.  The 2026 Open will also be at Shinnecock.
