Woodland denies history with US Open title

PEBBLE BEACH, Calif.—Gary Woodland denied Brooks Koepka's bold bid at history and made U.S. Open memories of his own yesterday with two clutch shots, a birdie putt on the final hole and that silver trophy in his hands at Pebble Beach.

Yeah, he's got this.

Koepka, trying to match a 114-year-old record with his third straight U.S. Open, kept the pressure on until the very end.

Woods wins in return to Match Play

AUSTIN, Tex.—Six years later, the Dell Technologies Match Play was all too familiar for Tiger Woods.

He was on the cusp of losing his fourth-straight hole yesterday when Woods poured in a 10-foot par putt while Aaron Wise three-putted from 30 feet.

Just like that, momentum swung in his favour. Woods won three of the next six holes to take his opening match 3-and-1.

Pebble Beach no U.S. Open preview

PEBBLE BEACH, Calif.—Only four American courses have hosted a PGA Tour event and a major championship in the same year—a concept that USGA chief executive Mike Davis does not consider to be ideal.

One big exception is Pebble Beach.

“I think this is great,” Davis said yesterday as he walked down the 16th fairway.

“Because this is nothing like it will be [in] June.”

Top-ranked Rose wins tournament title

SAN DIEGO—Justin Rose missed a short birdie putt that felt like another bogey.

His three-shot lead was down to one through six holes of the Farmers Insurance Open—and the biggest battle was trying not to panic.

That's when he scratched a line on his scorecard after six holes, wanting to start his round from that moment forward.

He also gave himself a pep talk.
