By winning The Open Championship, Jordan Spieth joined Jack Nicklaus as the only player with three major wins before his 24th birthday.

On Sunday, Jordan Spieth won his third major championship, further proving that the gamble Under Armour took on a little-known, 19-year-old golfer in 2013 was a brilliant one. Among Under Armour's bevy of MVPs and tops-in-their-sport athletes, is Spieth, the face of their golf line. As was the case with many of the other athletes on Team Under Armour, they jumped on Spieth's bandwagon early, long before he was a household name.

Long Drive competitions are quite the event. The event is rather self-explanatory — extremely strong golfers gather together to see who can hit golf balls farther than anyone else in the world. Think of it as golf's Home Run Derby, an event meant to show off the strength of its competitors and their very specific ability outside of the larger sport. Long Drive competitions are also similar to the Home Run Derby in that they give athletes an opportunity to let loose. Whereas over-the-top celebrations are somewhat frowned upon at Augusta National, Tuesday night at the Mile High Showdown, they were all but encouraged. And no one had better celebrations on Tuesday than eventual champion Maurice Allen.

Do you know what the Mile High Showdown is? Neither did we, that is until Maurice Allen sauntered onto the scene. The event invites some of the biggest long-ball hitters in golf to smash the ball as far as possible in the Denver altitude. And Allen, who seemingly loves the spotlight, was ready for his closeup when the event started, sporting perhaps the greatest pants/shoes combo that has ever been rocked on a course.  Here's a closer look. This was Allen's first televised World Long Drive Association win and he soaked it all up, going full Nature Boy during one of his interviews. Someone put this man on every Tour stop. Is he a golfer in the conventional sense? No, but he can break the sport

We interviewed Rocco Mediate, the golf player who made it to the 2008 US Open against Tiger Woods. Here are his thoughts about that historic match. Following is a transcript of the video. It was the funnest time I have ever had playing golf in my life, was that Monday, with him. So, 2008 United States Open, Torrey Pines, against Tiger Woods, our best player, probably ever. That week I was playing good, I was playing good coming in. And Tiger came to the last, having to make birdie, hit a tee shot on the left bunker, laid it up on the rough. I am watching the telecast. Everybody was like, “Oh, my god! I can’t believe you're going to win the US Open.” I went, "I haven't won anything yet. We are

Dustin Johnson hopes he is starting to see the end of his back problems that began with an untimely fall on the eve of The Masters. The world number one headed to Augusta National as hot favourite to add to his U.S. Open win in 2016 after three consecutive PGA Tour titles in seven starts. Johnson said he still receives regular treatment on his back to ease his tight muscles, and the 33-year-old hopes he will be fit enough to be in contention at the upcoming US PGA Championship at Quail Hollow.

Associated Press GREENSBORO, N.C. -- There's going to be a whole lot of Love at the Wyndham Championship. Tournament director Mark Brazil said Tuesday that Dru Love received a sponsor's exemption to next month's event and will join his father -- three-time winner Davis Love III -- in the field. The two Loves played The Greenbrier Classic and the Barbasol Championship together, and Davis Love III caddied for his son at the U.S. Open. The Love family has strong ties to the Greensboro-based tournament. Davis Love Jr. played here four times from 1959 to '68 and Davis Love III counts victories here in 1992, 2006 and 2015 among his 21 career wins. Dru Love is in his first year as a professional after
