Spieth storms into early lead at Travelers Championship

Rory McIlroy returned to action last week at the U.S. Open, and was understandably a little rusty.

US Open leaderboard crowded after day two

Paul Casey chopped his way to a triple bogey, only to respond with five straight birdies that carried him to 1-under 71 and make him the first to hit the clubhouse with the lead at 7-under 137. He then hacked out his fifth out sideways and now some 52-feet from the hole from where he chipped and two putted. "I hit the ball better than I did yesterday, I drove it very well and hit a lot of good iron shots, I just didn't make any putts", Johnson said. Read More

Koepka in control and with a 1-shot lead at US Open

Prior to Sunday, Koepka's only win on the PGA Tour came in 2015 at the Waste Management Phoenix Open. Harman, who had taken the outright lead earlier in the round with a birdie at three, seemed to fade as the pressure increased, bogeying the 12th after finding the rough and missing a short putt on the 13th hole as Koepka was going the other way.

Oakland triumphant as parade celebrates Warriors title

That was followed by a staredown from Durant after hitting a late 3-pointer. The Warriors beat LeBron James and the Cavaliers in five games in the Finals. Both of them appear to have lost their minds. One Warrior has already publicly stated he won't make the trip if the offer is placed on the table. It is hard to argue this statement after the team's performance this year and dominance in the playoffs. Read More

Andre Ward admits his low punches were 'borderline'

While the judges verdict divides opinion, Ward was confident he'd get the nod but fully aware that the fight was close especially facing a deficit from the knockdown. Yes he went 12 rounds with a past-prime Arthur Abraham in two of the most boring world title fights in living memory, but he has consistently failed when he has stepped up on any level. Read More

Missed fairways leave McIlroy in rough shape at US Open

The U.S. Open was only his sixth start this year. Right behind was a trio of players that included Rickie Fowler , who went 28 holes before making his first bogey and then went three holes without making a par. Mickelson had kept fans and officials guessing nearly down to the wire, hanging on to the long shot hope that storms might delay the start of the year's second major and allow him to attend the graduation and then fly from San Diego to Wisconsin to make his tee time.

Marc Leishman racing up leaderboard at US Open

He's 13 strokes behind Rickie Fowler , who is now one stroke ahead with players still on the course.
