2019 Open Championship: Shane Lowry’s emotional win at Royal Portrush resonated deeply
I cried on Sunday when Shane Lowry won The Open Championship. Covering The Open from afar is a bizarre experience. It’s always one of my favorite weeks of the year, but it’s still a little weird. My family drove to Colorado for the week for a wedding, and I... Read more

U.S. Open 2019: A beach shot, runaway golf cart and bandit seagull shake up Pebble Beach
PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. —  Golf at the 2019 U.S. Open has been relatively tame. And that’s actually a compliment considering how the USGA has laid out its courses, particularly over the last few years. Few will forget Billy Horschel mocking the Poa annua at Chambers Bay in 2015, for... Read more
