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.”

Hall inductees named

ST. MARYS, Ont.—Slugger Jason Bay, pitcher Ryan Dempster, coach Rob Thomson, and executive Gord Ash are going into the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame.

The four members of the 2019 class own a combined eight World Series rings, five all-star selections, and four Tip O'Neill awards.
