AUGUSTA, Ga. -- The course wouldn't be eaten alive again Friday, not by anyone, from the clammy outset and soggy middle to the wind-whipped end. Augusta National again had most everyone under control, and that included the one guy whose force-of-nature runs can turn the place inside out. So there stood Tiger Woods, brilliantly extricated from pine straw along the 15th fairway, staring directly at the pin and full command of the weekend....

Teeing off on the final hole at the U.S. Open, Justin Rose figured he needed par to seal a victory. The direction and trajectory of his shot looked good, but not until he walked up the fairway did Rose see that his ball had landed right beside a plaque commemorating the famous one-iron shot that Ben Hogan hit on the way to winning the U.S. Open in 1950. “When I came over the hill and saw my ball lying in the middle of the fairway … I thought, 'This is my moment,'" Rose recalled.

Australia's Jason Day capped an exciting day at the Deutsche Bank Championship on Sunday with a routine birdie to take the lead after the third round at Norton, Mass. Day watched a three-shot lead evaporate in two holes, only to get it back on the par-five 18th with a shot just off the back of the green, leaving him a simple two-putt for birdie and a five-under 66. He had a one-shot lead over American Brandt Snedeker , who made a mess of the 18th until chipping in for par and a 67. England's Luke Donald was a stroke further back in third place after he birdied the last hole for a 66. The rest of the leaderboard has Steve Stricker and Charley Hoffman at 13 under and Phil Mickelson leading a group of four tied at 12 under.

Bo Van Pelt kept bogeys off his card and picked up an extra shot when his wedge spun back into the hole for an eagle. It's a formula that would work well at aU.S. Open, which is what Congressional felt like Thursday in the AT&T National at Bethesda, Md. On a day when only seven players managed a score in the 60s, Van Pelt opened with a four-under-par 67 to grab a one-shot lead over Vijay Singh , Brendon De Jonge and Jimmy Walker . Tiger Woods was never under par in the afternoon and opened with a one-over 72. The venerable Blue Course took a beating last year in the so-called toughest test in golf when unfavorable weather conditions in the weeks leading up to the U.S. Open and overnight rain during the championship made Congressional a pushover.

Tiger Woods seemed to be in an upbeat, joking mood Tuesday, even as he answered questions about his personal life, his struggles on the course and whether the first had any influence over the second. But he seemed baffled at his sudden decline in almost every facet of his game and said he didn't know how he would fare this weekend. Thursday might have given him a much-needed confidence boost. Woods shot a one-under-par 71 and is three shots behind the leaders after the first day of the PGA Championship.

AUGUSTA, Ga. - The ornery, tormenting course has taken so much back over two days, and now a brimming Sunday at Augusta National will give everyone everything they could want at the Masters. There is Angel Cabrera, the unaffected Argentine who brought coffee to the practice range on a sun-splashed Saturday morning and a pack of cigarettes to the interview room. There are three Australians lingering near the lead, swinging against the history of their countrymen's past failings on this ground.

Bubba Watson overpowered two-time champion Geoff Ogilvy on Friday and rolled into the quarterfinals of the Match Play Championship with a performance so dominant that he has played only 43 holes in three days in Marana, Ariz. Ogilvy had little chance against Watson, who was seven under par through 13 holes and ended up with a six-and-four win. Martin Kaymer of Germany had to rally against Hunter Mahan to reach the quarterfinals. He was two down with six holes remaining but then won two holes, pulled ahead with an eight-foot birdie on No. 16, then closed out the match when Mahan hit a poor chip on the 17th hole.

ARDMORE, Pa. - Justin Rose received a text message last week telling him to "go out and be the man your dad taught you to be. " After he finished his round but before he had won the U.S. Open on Sunday at Merion Golf Club, Rose pointed skyward as a nod to his late father and coach, Ken. "The look up to the heavens was absolutely for my dad," Rose said. "Father's Day was not lost on me today. You don't have opportunities to really dedicate a win to someone you love. And today was about him. " Rose shot an even-par 70 Sunday, capping it with one of the loveliest pars he has ever made, to win the U.S. Open by two shots over Phil Mickelson and Jason Day. Rose, 32, finished one over par and became the first English player to win the U.S. Open in 43 years.

ARDMORE, Pa.  - It is hard to know whether this year's U.S. Open golf tournament will be remembered for Justin Rose's victory or Phil Mickelson's defeat. Rose is 32 years old, an Englishman born in South Africa, who was a prodigy as early as 17 with his tie for fourth place as an amateur in the 1998 British Open. Recently, he has been seen as somebody who hasn't won a major but certainly should. Now he has, making birdies on Nos. 12 and 13 and holding on for a one-shot victory with his closing 70, an even-par finale that left him at an unusual 72-hole winning total of one-over 281. The real answer to how this U.S. Open will be remembered may rest with the course it was played on, Merion Golf Club, which yielded nothing.

Will Power wrapped his hand around a big bottle of champagne, shook it up, let the bubbly fly and took a long drink. What better way to celebrate a perfect weekend? Power put on a masterful performance Sunday over a difficult street course to win the inaugural Baltimore Grand Prix. The Australian deftly negotiated hairpin turns and confidently gripped the wheel over bumpy roads to earn his second consecutive victory and career-high sixth of the season. Power had the best time in Friday's practice session, captured the pole Saturday, then led in 70 of the 75 laps to earn the $35,000 top prize.

Reporting from Augusta, Ga. For a while there, the Young Guns were threatening to turn the Masters into their own little campus intramural. Jason Day, 23, came within a shot Friday of matching the best 18-hole score at a major. Not that Rory McIlroy, 21, eased up all that much from his opening 65. And Rickie Fowler, 22, was keeping pace. Then the establishment had to come along and cast its shadow. A large shadow. Hello, Mr. Woods. Bill Plaschke: Tiger Woods puts a charge into Augusta Ten shots off McIlroy's pace at one point, Tiger Woods showed flashes of his 14-major former self with seven birdies over his final 11 holes — finishing with a six-under-par 66 that left him just three shots off the lead.
