  • When Paul Goydos qualified for last year’s British Open, his first Open Championship in a 15-year Tour career, he immediately envisioned a family trip to England for he and his two daughters.

  • OK, Paul “Sunshine” Goydos atop the Texas Open leaderboard may be a surprise, but some names fit atop the San Antonio marquee like Tex-Mex. Officials could just as well rename the event the Justin Leonard Invitational.

  • It was tough to pick a winner out of the list of possible contenders on Sunday in San Antonio.

  • Quietly, the Byron Nelson Championship is a week with major implications for players looking to play the season’s middle lineup of Grand Slam events.

  • A caddie-yard-staple-turned-radio-analyst has returned to the business end of a golf bag. Mike Collins, a regular on-course analyst for XM/Sirius Radio’s PGA Tour broadcasts, is back looping as Kevin Streelman’s new bagman.

  • MINNEOLA, Fla. – In many ways, qualifying for the U.S. Open is just like every other event a professional will play. It all comes down to location, location, location.

  • Late last year during the PGA Tour’s playoff stop in New Jersey we were talking with Michael Allen when he mentioned that a Champions Tour Q-School application had just arrived at his house.
