MEDINAH, Ill. (AP) — For the fifth time in the last six years, August on the PGA Tour means no more Tiger Woods for the rest of the season. Only now he's healthy. He also is the Masters champion. And that makes it a season he wouldn't trade. "Very special to win my 15th major and get my fifth...

MEDINAH, Ill. (AP) — The course is familiar to Tiger Woods. The circumstances are not. Medinah is where Woods buried that 8-foot par putt on the 17th hole in 1999 to win the PGA Championship for the first time by holding off teenage Sergio Garcia. He returned to Medinah in 2006 and won the PGA...

That was Tiger Woods in his red shirt on Sunday at the Masters. That was Tiger Woods slipping on the green jacket. But it's not the same Tiger Woods.

Organizers of the British Open have refused a request by former champion John Daly to use a golf cart at the championship in Royal Portrush this month. Daly had applied to use a cart because of his arthritic right knee. The R&A said it was declining the request because “walking the course is an integral part of the championship and is central to the tradition of links golf.” It said it was important to “ensure that, as far as possible, the challenge is the same for all players in the field.” (AP Photo/Andres Kudacki, FIle)

Daly's manager said Tuesday he is likely to play the Barbasol Championship next week in Kentucky, and the two-time major champion with osteoarthritis in his right knee already has been granted a cart...

Neither did Karrie Webb, who won seven majors in her Hall of Fame career. Webb watched from outside...

CHASKA, Minn. (AP) — Hannah Green keeps getting out of tough spots, and it's taken her to a place she has never been. Green twice escaped trouble with unlikely par saves, including one shot she holed from off the green, and made four birdies for a 3-under 69 and took a three-shot lead into the...

CHASKA, Minn. (AP) — The LPGA Tour gets its crack at Hazeltine National, the course with a recent history of surprising outcomes. This is where Rich Beem, a former car stereo salesman, held off a charge by Tiger Woods in the 2002 PGA Championship. It's where Y.E. Yang became the only player to come...

(AP) — The Latest on the U.S. Open (all times local): 1:45 p.m. One reason for Tiger Woods' less-than-great showing at the PGA Championship last month: "I was in rough shape," he said.
