11:45PM: That's it for Day 1: Here's a final look at the leaderboard, we'll be back again tomorrow with more updates.

11:10PM: At least he can joke about it.

10:57PM: Tiger shoots 80. Some unreal stats.

10:50PM: Spieth, Day finish at 2 under par: Solid starts for two of the favorites coming into the week.

10:40PM: (Jaw drops)

10:35PM: Amateur Brian Campbell is closing strong: Two birdies in a row and he's one off the lead.

10:20PM: Big names on the course at +1 include ... Kevin Kisner, Justin Rose, Billy Horschel, Zach Johnson and Jimmy Walker.

10:10PM: Finally, a birdie. Tiger's now beating Fowler by a stroke.

10:05PM: Day rebounds with a birdie on 16. He's back to 3 under par, along with Ben Martin (thru 15).

9:50PM: Down, but not out: Some late miscues by Spieth and Day, but they're still only three off the lead.

9:38PM: Just keeps getting worse. And he still has four holes left.

9:34PM: Another birdie for Day, and he's only one stroke behind Stenson and DJ.

9:20PM: Just a reminder, Hammer is 15 years old.

9:15PM: At 7 over par, Rickie Fowler's had an awful day, but he almost aced the par-4 12th.

9:10PM: Here comes Jordan: That's three birdies in a row for Jordan Spieth ...

9:01PM: Yeesh, not pretty ...

8:57PM: Day's going low: Jason Day adds another birdie on No. 12 to get to 3 under, two off the lead.

8:45PM: Look at that club fly! ICYMI, Tiger let his club go after hacking out of the rough on No. 8.

8:30PM: That's a birdie for Spieth. After a short putt on the 11th, Spieth reaches under par for the first time in Round 1.

8:25PM: Some thoughts on Henrik Stenson, who shot a career-low in the majors on Thursday, a 5-under 65.

8:20PM: Pick up the pace. That's what rules officials have told the Tiger-Rickie-Louis trio, according to the TV folks.

8:15PM: Jordan Spieth has been steady. The Masters champ is at even par through 10 holes, with one birdie and one bogey.

8:14PM: And lest we forget about Rickie Fowler ... he turned in 8 over par.

8:08PM: Tiger Woods turns in 4-over 39. No big numbers on his card (four bogeys, no birdies), but lots of bad swings and poor putts.

8PM: Amateur Brian Campbell is 3 under through seven holes. The 22-year-old Illinois senior made it through local and sectional qualifying to reach Chambers Bay.

7:52PM: Tiger Woods manages to save par at the par-5 eighth, despite a wayward tee shot and his club flying from his hand after impact on his second shot. Rickie Fowler, meanwhile, doubled the eighth. Tiger is at 4 over, Rickie at 5 over.

7:47PM: Jason Day is on the move. He makes a 25-footer for birdie at the ninth to turn in 2 under 33.

7:39PM: The saga continues for Tiger Woods off the tee on No. 8.

7:35PM: Jordan Spieth birdies the par-5 eighth to get back to even par for the tournament.

7:22PM: Some analysis of Rory McIlroy's opening-round 2-over 72.

7:15PM: Another bogey for Tiger. Woods drops to 4 over through six holes.

7:10PM: Jordan Spieth makes his first non-par. Unfortunately, it's a bogey at the sixth to drop to 1 over.

6:58PM: Ben Martin is off to a great start. Par-birdie-eagle has him at 3 under through three holes.

6:46PM: Meanwhile, there are 32 players currently under par, including amateur Beau Hossler, of Olympic Club fame in 2012. Starting at the 10th, he turned in 1-under 34.

6:39PM: Another bogey for Tiger Woods. He's 3 over through four holes.

6:28PM: In case you missed it, U.S. Senior Open champion Colin Montgomerie opened in 1-under 69 today.

6:22PM: Four holes, four pars for reigning Masters champion Jordan Spieth.

6:19PM: For the record, Sergio had 33 putts in an opening-round, even-par 70.

6:14PM: Not that there would be anything wrong with a few tears on the first hole of your U.S. Open debut, but ...

6:06PM: Ian Poulter said he would let us know his feelings on Chambers Bay after the event is over. After a double on his first hole, we probably have our answer.

5:55PM: Just like that ... Tiger is 2 over after two holes.

5:38PM: Our feel-good story of the tournament is in the clubhouse with a 7-over 77. Not bad for a 15-year-old.

5:35PM: And we have our first "Oh ... Tiger," from Tiger, after he sprays his approach right on No. 1. Only took two shots.

5:30PM: Tiger, Rickie and Louis are off, all down the middle of the fairway. Rickie gets a mock "overrated" chant from the fans.
5:23PM: You can't birdie them all ... if you don't birdie the first. 2013 U.S. Open champ Justin Rose hits his approach to two feet on hole No. 1.

5:19PM: And ... Jordan Spieth, Justin Rose and Jason Day are off. Big Cat coming up soon.
5:13PM: Definitive proof that "Seinfeld" stands the test of time, Fox just quizzed Cole Hammer on the 90's, only question he got right was, "What is Seinfeld's first name?"
4:58PM: Perks of being Tiger Woods: Warming up and watching your swing on the big screen that overlooks the range.
4:53PM: Meanwhile. world No. 1 Rory McIlroy had a rough finish, bogeying two of his final three holes for a 2-over 72 on Day 1. Agrees with Phil that the short putts are the toughest because it is "tough to commit to your lines" on these greens.

4:42PM: Reminder: Henrik Stenson is No. 5 in the world. He just freshened up everyone's memory birdieing four of his final five holes to tie DJ at 5-under 65.

4:26PM: Immediately after announcers say he has no imagination, Dustin Johnson hits one out of the fescue on his final hole in what looks like the opposite direction of the green, but uses the slope and the ball ends up 15 feet from the hole. His put comes up short and he makes his only bogey of the day, but is the leader in the clubhouse after a 5-under 65.
4:12PM: She's not wrong.

4:05PM: Bubba, Phil take different approaches to post-round interviews. Bubba doesn't speak. Phil goes classic Phil, "I’m under par the first round of the U.S. Open, I’m pretty pleased." Ends interview with a hug.

3:55PM: Mickelson backs up a bit on the back nine, but still finishes with a 1-under 69, well within striking distance of the career Grand Slam after Day 1.
3:50PM: Bubba not happy after having to wait to hit his second shot on 18: "Wait 30 minutes ... this is pathetic professional golf." Finishes with even-par 70 on Day 1.

3:36PM: Guy who knows just a tad bit about Chambers Bay, Michael Putnam:

3:29PM: Dustin Johnson gets it to 5 under with another birdie. Fourteen bogey-free holes now. While he's lighting it up, only 11 other players are under par. DJ dominating with his Tour-leading length in Round 1.

3:20PM: The first group is in the house. University Place resident Michael Putnam turns in an even-par 70. Putnam, Marcus Fraser (71) and Steve Marino (75) went around in 5 hours and 10 minutes. It's slow going out there.
3:12PM: Lest you forget, the railway adjacent to the 16th hole is active. A train just stopped to watch Phil and Bubba play 16. Here's Rory from a bit earlier:

3:01PM: We have a new leader. Dustin Johnson makes birdie at No. 4 to get to 4 under. Bogey-free through 13 holes. In search of his first major championship. Worth note (tweet prior to last birdie):
2:54PM: Stunning view of the property at Chambers Bay. Those hills also explain the aforementioned stretcher. Joe Buck on the broadcast said the elevation changes while walking the golf course were akin to going up and then back down the 605-foot Space Needle in nearby Seattle.

2:49PM: This is why some of the players have retained a backup caddie. Stay safe, folks.
2:45PM: Just like Phil, Reed plays the front nine without a dropped shot and promptly bogeys his 10th hole of the day. Speaking of Mickelson, who led by himself at 3 under just an hour ago, back-to-back bogeys have him back to minus-1. Serious bunker problems for Lefty on 14. He was lucky to only lose one shot.
2:40PM: Looking for Rory? The world No. 1 is even par through 10 after trading two birdies and two bogeys on his opening nine. Lurking.

2:26PM: Chambers Bay is already showing its teeth. The morning wave expected to have it easier but just eight players find themselves in red numbers. Mike Davis re-emphasized on the broadcast that the golf course is only going to get faster and firmer as the day goes on. This was just from a practice round on Tuesday:
2:20PM: Reed turns in 4-under 31. Dustin Johnson to 3 under par, one shot back. Mickelson, meanwhile, dropped another shot at 13 and is back to 2 under. A look at Reed's spotless opening nine:

2:15PM: The defending champ is off to an interesting start. Martin Kaymer bringing the color, with a bogey, an eagle, a double bogey and a birdie.

2:00PM: Reed it and leap. Patrick Reed has leapfrogged Phil Mickelson for the lead at 115th U.S. Open. Reed at 4 under through eight after back-to-back birdies at 16 and 17.

1:47PM: Course info. Closing hole sounds like driver-wedge.

1:44PM: Bounce-back birdie for Phil at 11. Mickelson back in the lead by himself at 3 under after a beautiful 6-iron approach to the green landed on a hill and tracked to the hole. Birdie putt. Draino.
1:41PM: He's alive. We were worried. We're always worried. Somebody put a bell on him or something.
1:31PM: Big names in the early mix. Seven-way tie at the top of the board. Five of those players reside in the top 17 of the Official World Golf Ranking. What a start.

1:25PM: Phil's first dropped shot comes at the par-4 10th. Second shot wound up on the back of the green and he three-putted from what might as well have been Siberia. Played his first putt nowhere near the direction of the hole and tried to ride a massive slope. Would have been a miracle par. Back to 2-under.

1:19PM: Seventh time is the charm? Your early leader, Phil Mickelson, has finished runner-up at the U.S. Open a record six times. His list of near-misses: 1999 Pinehurst, 2002 Bethpage, 2004 Shinnecock, 2006 Winged Foot, 2009 Bethpage, 2013 Merion.

1:10PM: Like Sergio at Medinah! 15-year-old Cole Hammer, who was visibly emotional starting his round, just took off running in the 12th fairway to see around some kind of mountain after playing his shot. Kid is a little fired up. Par-bogey-par start.

1:04PM: Lefty goes out in 3-under 32. We're all going to go through this yet again on Sunday - aren't we?

12:53PM: Preliminary research reveals an uncanny resemblance:

12:44PM: Have to wonder if ... he ever asked for a Red Ryder when he was a kid.

12:33PM: Is this real life? Phil, Stenson, DJ, Scott all in the mix at the U.S. Open:

12:30PM: What she said.

12:26PM: TAP-IN. That's what 15-year-old Cole Hammer had on his first hole at the 115th U.S. Open, as he left his birdie putt MERE ROTATIONS short. What were YOU doing at 15?

12:20PM: Imagery of what just happened at Chambers Bay:

12:14PM: It's Hammer time. Cole is the third-youngest player to ever compete in a U.S. Open.

12:08PM: World No. 1 made birdie at this hole to get to 1 under (No. 10 was Rory McIlroy's first hole of the day).

11:57AM: "Absolutely the best thing" is how Mark Rolfing referred to an early tee time on Thursday at the 115th U.S. Open at Chambers Bay.

11:53AM: Mickelson leads the U.S. Open. We're just going to leave this here:

11:47AM: We're not saying anything ... but we're just saying. Colin Montgomerie (three Champions Tour major championships, zero on the regular circuit) birdies his opening hole.

11:42AM: Conditions are ... perfect, it seems, for the next few hours at Chambers Bay:

11:35AM: Best seat in the house? Kelly Tilghman's view from the 'Live From' set:

11:18AM: Phil co-leads the U.S. Open alongside Cody Gribble after a birdie at No. 3:

11:13AM: Sergio Garcia is seeing red ... even though he's not yet on the golf course. Warming up with a dark red golf ball in advance of his 11:17 tee time.

10:56AM: Meanwhile, a certain lefty is off to a rough start. Bubba, not Phil.

10:50AM: Hey, ma! Look at me! Former Texas teammate of Jordan spieth, Cody Gribble is the early leader at the 115th U.S. Open:

10:35AM: Hear from Mike Davis, executive director of the USGA, on the Thursday setup:


10:29AM: The No. 1 player in the world has arrived and is warming up on the range:


10:22AM: On 'Live From' the U.S. Open, John Feinstein reported that players were given an emergency phone number to call if, when out on the course, they fall and need help, because "that's how difficult" Chambers Bay is to walk.


10:15AM: The pin locations for the opening round:


10:03AM: The first group is off, led by Michael Putnam. Only 51 more to go ...

9:55AM: Phil Mickelson is warming up for his first round at 10:33 a.m. ET

9:50AM: The course setup for Thursday looks like this:

Teenager Im wins Web.com season opener

By Will GrayJanuary 16, 2018, 10:23 pm

South Korea's Sungjae Im cruised to a four-shot victory at The Bahamas Great Exuma Classic, becoming just the second teenager to win an event on the Web.com Tour.

Im started the final day of the season-opening event in a share of the lead but still with six holes left in his third round. He was one shot behind Carlos Ortiz when the final round began, but moved ahead of the former Web.com Player of the Year thanks to a 7-under 65 in rainy and windy conditions. Im's 13-under total left him four clear of Ortiz and five shots ahead of a quartet of players in third.

Still more than two months shy of his 20th birthday, Im joins Jason Day as the only two teens to win on the developmental circuit. Day was 19 years, 7 months and 26 days old when he captured the 2007 Legend Financial Group Classic.

Recent PGA Tour winners Si Woo Kim and Patrick Cantlay and former NCAA champ Aaron Wise all won their first Web.com Tour event at age 20.

Other notable finishes in the event included Max Homa (T-7), Erik Compton (T-13), Curtis Luck (T-13) and Lee McCoy (T-13). The Web.com Tour will remain in the Bahamas for another week, with opening round of The Bahamas Great Abaco Classic set to begin Sunday.

Mickelson grouped with Z. Johnson at CareerBuilder

By Will GrayJanuary 16, 2018, 8:28 pm

He's not the highest-ranked player in this week's field, but Phil Mickelson will likely draw the biggest crowd at the CareerBuilder Challenge as he makes his first start of 2018. Here are a few early-round, marquee groupings to watch as players battle the three-course rotation in the Californian desert (all times ET):

12:10 p.m. Thursday, 11:40 a.m. Friday, 1:20 p.m. Saturday: Phil Mickelson, Zach Johnson

Mickelson is making his fourth straight trip to Palm Springs, having cracked the top 25 each of the last three times. In addition to their respective amateur partners, he'll play the first three rounds alongside a fellow Masters champ in Johnson, who tied for 14th last week in Hawaii and finished third in this event in 2014.

11:40 a.m. Thursday, 1:20 p.m. Friday, 12:50 p.m. Saturday: Jon Rahm, Bubba Watson

At No. 3 in the world, Rahm is the highest-ranked player teeing it up this week and the Spaniard returns to an event where he finished T-34 last year in his tournament debut. He'll play the first two rounds alongside Watson, who is looking to bounce back from a difficult 2016-17 season and failed to crack the top 50 in two starts in the fall.

11:40 a.m. Thursday, 1:20 p.m. Friday, 12:50 p.m. Saturday: Patrick Reed, Brandt Snedeker

Reed made the first big splash of his career at this event in 2014, shooting three straight rounds of 63 en route to his maiden victory. He'll be joined by Snedeker, whose bid for a Masters bid via the top 50 of the world rankings came up short last month and who hasn't played this event since a missed cut in 2015.

1:10 p.m. Thursday, 12:40 p.m. Friday, 12:10 p.m. Saturday: Patton Kizzire, Bill Haas

Kizzire heads east after a whirlwind Sunday ended with his second win of the season in a six-hole playoff over James Hahn in Honolulu. He'll play alongside Haas, who won this event in both 2010 and 2015 to go with a runner-up finish in 2011 and remains the tournament's all-time leading money winner.

Mackay still a caddie at heart, even with a microphone

By Doug FergusonJanuary 16, 2018, 7:34 pm

HONOLULU – All it took was one week back on the bag to remind Jim ''Bones'' Mackay what he always loved about being a caddie.

It just wasn't enough for this to be the ultimate mic drop.

Mackay traded in his TV microphone at the Sony Open for the 40-pound bag belonging to Justin Thomas.

It was his first time caddying since he split with Phil Mickelson six months ago. Mackay was only a temporary replacement at Waialae for Jimmy Johnson, a good friend and Thomas' regular caddie who has a nasty case of plantar fasciitis that will keep him in a walking boot for the next month.

''The toughest thing about not caddying is missing the competition, not having a dog in the fight,'' Mackay said before the final round. ''There's nothing more rewarding as a caddie, in general terms, when you say, 'I don't like 6-iron, I like 7,' and being right. I miss that part of it.''

The reward now?

''Not stumbling over my words,'' he said. ''And being better than I was the previous week.''

He has done remarkably well since he started his new job at the British Open last summer, except for that time he momentarily forgot his role. Parts of that famous caddie adage – ''Show up, keep up, shut up'' – apparently can apply to golf analysts on the ground.

During the early hours of the telecast, before Johnny Miller came on, Justin Leonard was in the booth.

''It's my job to report on what I see. It's not my job to ask questions,'' Mackay said. ''I forgot that for a minute.''

Leonard was part of a booth discussion on how a comfortable pairing can help players trying to win a major. That prompted Mackay to ask Leonard if he found it helpful at the 1997 British Open when he was trying to win his first major and was paired with Fred Couples in the final round at Royal Troon.

''What I didn't know is we were going to commercial in six seconds,'' Mackay said. ''I would have no way of knowing that, but I completely hung Justin out to dry. He's now got four seconds to answer my long-winded question.''

During the commercial break, the next voice Mackay heard belonged to Tommy Roy, the executive golf producer at NBC.

''Bones, don't ever do that again.''

It was Roy who recognized the value experienced caddies could bring to a telecast. That's why he invited Mackay and John Wood, the caddie for Matt Kuchar, into the control room at the 2015 Houston Open so they could see how it all worked and how uncomfortable it can be to hear directions coming through an earpiece.

Both worked as on-course reporters at Sea Island that fall.

And when Mickelson and Mackay parted ways after 25 years, Roy scooped up the longtime caddie for TV.

It's common for players to move into broadcasting. Far more unusual is for a caddie to be part of the mix. Mackay loves his new job. Mostly, he loves how it has helped elevate his profession after so many years of caddies being looked upon more unfavorably than they are now.

''I want to be a caddie that's doing TV,'' he said. ''That's what I hope to come across as. The guys think this is good for caddies. And if it's good for caddies, that makes me happy. Because I'm a caddie. I'll always be a caddie.''

Not next week at Torrey Pines, where Mickelson won three times. Not a week later in Phoenix, where Mackay lives. Both events belong to CBS.

And not the Masters.

He hasn't missed Augusta since 1994, when Mickelson broke his leg skiing that winter.

''That killed me,'' he said, ''but not nearly as much as it's going to kill me this year. I'll wake up on Thursday of the Masters and I'll be really grumpy. I'll probably avoid television at all costs until the 10th tee Sunday. And I'll watch. But it will be, within reason, the hardest day of my life.''

There are too many memories, dating to when he was in the gallery right of the 11th green in 1987 when Larry Mize chipped in to beat Greg Norman. He caddied for Mize for two years, and then Scott Simpson in 1992, and Mickelson the rest of the way. He was on the bag for Lefty's three green jackets.

Mackay still doesn't talk much about what led them to part ways, except to say that a player-caddie relationship runs its course.

''If you lose that positive dynamic, there's no point in continuing,'' he said. ''It can be gone in six months or a year or five years. In our case, it took 25 years.''

He says a dozen or so players called when they split up, and the phone call most intriguing was from Roy at NBC.

''I thought I'd caddie until I dropped,'' Mackay said.

He never imagined getting yardages and lining up putts for anyone except the golfer whose bag he was carrying. Now it's for an audience that measures in the millions. Mackay doesn't look at it as a second career. And he won't rule out caddying again.

''It will always be tempting,'' he said. ''I'll always consider myself a caddie. Right now, I'm very lucky and grateful to have the job I do.''

Except for that first week in April.

The Social: The end was nigh, then it wasn't

By Jason CrookJanuary 16, 2018, 7:00 pm

The star power at the Sony Open may have been overshadowed by a missile scare, but there were plenty of other social media stories that kept the golf world on its toes this week, including some insight on Tiger Woods from a round with President Obama and some failed trick shots.

All that and more in this week's edition of The Social.

By now you've undoubtedly heard about the false alarm in Hawaii on Saturday, where just about everyone, including most Sony Open participants, woke up to an emergency cell phone alert that there was a ballistic missile heading toward the islands.

Hawaiian emergency management officials eventually admitted the original message was mistakenly sent out, but before they did, people (understandably) freaked out.

As the situation unfolded, some Tour pros took to social media to express their confusion and to let the Twittersphere know how they planned on riding out this threat:

While I would've been in that bathtub under the mattress with John Peterson, his wife, baby and in-laws (wait, how big is this tub?), here's how Justin Thomas reacted to the threat of impending doom:

Yeah, you heard that right.

“I was like ‘there’s nothing I can do,'” Thomas said. ”I sat on my couch and opened up the sliding door and watched TV and listened to music. I was like, if it’s my time, it’s my time.”

Hmmm ... can we just go ahead and award him all the 2018 majors right now? Because if Thomas is staring down death in mid-January, you gotta like the kid's chances on the back nine Sunday at Augusta and beyond.

Before the Hawaiian Missile Crisis of 2018, things were going about as well as they could at Waialae Country Club, starting with the Wednesday pro-am.

Jordan Spieth might have been the third-biggest star in his own group, after getting paired with superstar singer/songwriter/actor Nick Jonas and model/actress Kelly Rohrbach.

You'd be hard-pressed to find a more photogenic group out on the course, and the "Baywatch" star has a gorgeous swing as well, which makes sense, considering she was a former collegiate golfer at Georgetown.

As impressive as that group was, they were somehow outshined by an amateur in another group, former NFL coach June Jones.

Jones, who now coaches the CFL's Hamilton Tiger-Cats, played his round in bare feet and putted with his 5-iron, a remedy he came up with to battle the yips.

Former NFL and current CFL coach June Jones: A master of 5-iron putting?

A post shared by PGA TOUR (@pgatour) on

Considering he made back-to-back birdies at one point during the day, it's safe to say he's won that battle.

With Tiger Woods' return to the PGA Tour about a week away, that sound you hear is the hype train motoring full speed down the tracks.

First, his ex-girlfriend Lindsey Vonn told Sports Illustrated that she hopes this comeback works out for him.

“I loved him and we’re still friends. Sometimes, I wish he would have listened to me a little more, but he’s very stubborn and he likes to go his own way," the Olympic skiier said. "I hope this latest comeback sticks. I hope he goes back to winning tournaments.”

Vonn also mentioned she thinks Woods is very stubborn and that he didn't listen to her enough. That really shouldn't shock anyone who watched him win the 2008 U.S. Open on one leg. Don't think there were a lot of people in his ear telling him that was a great idea at the time.

We also have this report from Golf Channel Insider Tim Rosaforte, stating that the 14-time major champ recently played a round with former president Barack Obama at The Floridian in Palm City, Fla., where he received rave reviews from instructor Claude Harmon.

The Farmers Insurance Open is sure to be must-see TV, but until then, I'm here for all of the rampant speculation and guesses as to how things will go. The more takes the better. Make them extra spicy, please and thanks.

These poor New Orleans Saints fans. Guess the only thing you can do is throw your 65-inch TV off the balcony and get 'em next year.

Here's two more just for good measure.

Farts ... will they ever not be funny?

Perhaps someday, but that day was not early last week, when Tommy Fleetwood let one rip on his European teammates during EurAsia Cup team photos.

Fleetwood went 3-0-0 in the event, helping Europe to a victory over Asia, perhaps by distracting his opponents with the aid of his secret weapon.

Also, how about the diabolical question, "Did you get that?"

Yeah Tommy, we all got that.

Ahhh ... golf trick shot videos. You were fun while you lasted.

But now we’ve officially come to the point in their existence where an unsuccessful attempt is much more entertaining than a properly executed shot, and right on cue, a couple of pros delivered some epic fails.

We start with Sony Open runner-up James Hahn’s preparation for the event, where for some reason he thought he needed to practice a running, jumping, Happy Gilmore-esque shot from the lip of a bunker. It didn’t exactly work out.

Not to be outdone, Ladies European Tour pro Carly Booth attempted the juggling-drive-it-out-of-midair shot made famous by the Bryan Bros, and from the looks of things she might have caught it a little close to the hosel.

PSA to trick-shot artists everywhere: For the sake of the viewing public, if you feel a miss coming on, please make sure the camera is rolling.

Seriously, though, who cares? Definitely not these guys and gals, who took the time to comment, "who cares?" They definitely do not care.
