PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. – The fog was so thick on a brisk Saturday morning at iconic Pebble Beach that it was impossible to see the ninth and 10th holes from the seventh green. The Pacific Ocean was nearly indecipherable, too. Unmistakable, however, was the quality of golf from all four U.S. Amateur semifinalists. With a trip to the U.S. Open – and a likely invite to the Masters – on the line, Cole Hammer and Isaiah Salinda rose to the occasion on a soft and gettable Pebble Beach layout. Hammer, an incoming freshman at Texas, made five birdies in his last 12 holes and overcame a 2-over start through four holes to shoot 2 under in 16 holes. Salinda, a senior at Stanford, was 5 under in 18 holes with

Things took a barbaric turn Friday night during a fight at Southers Marsh Golf Club in Plymouth, Mass. A 47-year-old man was arrested and charged with mayhem after allegedly biting another man’s finger off during the altercation. WCVB reports that someone called 911 after two foursomes got into it on the course. Firefighters arrived to find that one of the men had his finger bitten off down to the knuckle.

C.T. Pan has his wife, Michelle, carrying his golf bag this week. But she may not be eager to be back caddying for her husband anytime soon. “It was a coincidence, for sure,” Pan told Amanda Balionis of CBS during a rain-delay at the Wyndham Championship Saturday as to how Michelle Pan ended up being his caddie this week. C.T. Pan said he has broken two bags this year and was able to get a substitute bag this week. But a search for a local caddie in the Greensboro, N.C., area proved fruitless. So he turned to his wife. “I asked her ‘Do you want to caddie for me?’ She always wanted to do it. But we (didn’t) know when was the right time. This is a perfect week to do it, and she said ‘yes.’ But

Pro golfer Justin Thomas on PGA Championship and investing 3:50 PM ET Wed, 15 Aug 2018 | 02:18 Tiger Woods is no longer golf's reigning king, but he still steals the show — and that's just fine with 2017 PGA champ Justin Thomas. In fact, while Woods hasn't scored a major title in a decade, he was the main attraction last weekend at the U.S. PGA Championship. He ultimately came in second place, behind Brooks Koepka. Thomas, who played at the championship and tied for sixth place, said Woods helped get the game, and the prize money, where it is today. "I don't think I even understand all that Tiger's done for the game of golf," he said in a recent interview with "Closing Bell" on CNBC. "The

If Lexi Thompson’s trouble in the sixth fairway brought back any painful memories Saturday at the Indy Women in Tech Championship, she shook them off in a hurry. If the approach of another rules official amid a spirited run of brilliant play rattled her, she didn’t show it. Thompson posted an 8-under-par 64 in the third round despite another awkward rules infraction.

Brandt Snedeker struggled coming off the emotional high that comes with shooting 59, but it didn’t stop him from rallying Friday to try to turn his historic round into a victory at the Wyndham Championship.

Rory McIlroy is taking a few weeks off from golf following last week's PGA Championship. The No. 7 player in the world will skip next week's Northern Trust, which is the first of four FedEx Cup Playoff events, before presumably returning for the Dell Technologies Championship over Labor Day. "I need to assess where I'm at," McIlroy said after last week's PGA. "I think the best thing for me to do right now is just sort of take a couple days off, reflect on what I need to do going forward. The best thing might be to take that first FedExCup week off and work on my game and come back, hopefully, in a better place for Boston. "Historically, the first FedEx playoff event hasn't been my best event

If you're struggling to hit accurate drives, the issue is a lack of clubface control. Many amateurs start their backswings by whipping the driver way inside the target line and opening the face. From there, they re-route the club on a looping path that comes into the ball from outside the target line—the classic over-the-top move—with an open face in relation to the path.

Paul Waring and Thomas Aiken lead the way at the Nordea Masters, but Ryder Cup hopeful Thorbjorn Olesen remains firmly in contention for an important victory. Overnight co-leader Waring entered the third round two shots clear of Aiken, but the South African signed for a three-under 67 to join him at the top of the leaderboard on 12 under for the tournament. The pair sit three shots clear of Olesen, who will be hoping to triumph in Gothenburg to boost his chances of clinching an automatic qualification spot for Europe's Ryder Cup team.

Brandt Snedeker is bracing for a long last day at the Wyndham Championship.

Johnson Wagner didn't hear no bell.

Add this to the reasons why we all love golfer Andrew “Beef” Johnston. The man who has used a bacon and cheddar towel at the U.S. Open and who has the best beard in golf got some mud on his pants after hitting out of a hazard at the Nordea Masters, so he decided to change them … in front of the gallery. And he had no problem with it, getting the crowd into the act as he stripped:
