AUGUSTA, Ga. -- Like John Travolta's character in “Saturday Night Fever,” Jordan Spieth strutted down the Augusta National practice range, one confident stride after the next. While onlookers applauded, Spieth high-fived Sean Foley, the swing coach for Justin Rose. After reaching the practice green, Spieth bantered with playing partner Bubba Watson. He appeared completely in his element, a 20-year-old ready to prove that experience matters as much as the color of your shirt.

Justin Rose started out as another guy in Tiger Woods' group Thursday at Bay Hill. He wound up in the lead. Rose put on a clinic with the putter and ran off four straight birdies late in his round for a seven-under-par 65, giving him a two-shot lead after the opening round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Orlando, Fla. Woods had two sloppy bogeys from greenside bunkers and didn't hit it as well as he did when he won at Doral two weeks ago....

The echoes amid the pines at Augusta National provided evidence Wednesday that the excitement of the 78th Masters was kicking up. The annual par-three tournament produced its usual crowd-pleasing theatrics -- from the aces delivered by Matt Jones, Buddy Alexander and Mark O'Meara to the dialed-in, six-birdie victory claimed by Ryan Moore. But the serious business begins Thursday with 97 players teeing it up and many eager to see just how wide open the doors to contending will be. Finding an obvious favorite seems as difficult as ever, particularly with the absence of the world No. 1 Tiger Woods.

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.

Bill Haas wanted to atone for the way he finished his opening round. He did that and more Friday and was tied for the lead in the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Orlando, Fla. That sure wasn't the case for Tiger Woods. One shot out of the lead with three holes to play, Woods closed with three sloppy bogeys to fall four shots behind going into the weekend. That makes the chore a little more difficult in his bid to defend his title at Bay Hill and return to No. 1 in the world. "The good news is we've got 36 holes to go," Woods said.

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.

Dublin, Ohio — Justin Rose put a new putter in his bag two weeks ago and placed 10th at the European Tour's showcase event. Then for some reason, he took it out for last week's return to the U.S. circuit. Turns out the English pro outsmarted himself. Rose made the cut, but finished near the weekend's bottom. "Probably wasn't the smartest thing," he admitted. New putter reinstated, Rose rebounded Thursday with a seven-under-par 65 that was good for a share of the lead after one round at the Memorial Tournament.

They started near high noon, two gunslingers and a sniper. They were ready, willing and hoping to be able to bring the enemy to its knees, the enemy being the hallowed and harrowing Riviera Country Club. They were Dustin Johnson, Justin Rose and Jim Furyk, a threesome of big-name golfers and a popular choice for the galleries on the second day of the Northern Trust Open. The attraction was obvious. Two of the players, Rose and Furyk, were major winners, each having a U.S. Open title in their resume.

Ben Hogan won at Riviera Country Club. So did Byron Nelson and Sam Snead too, all before the Dodgers or Lakers ever showed up here. This is the week when Los Angeles shares its cherished course with the PGA Tour, and all that history and tradition generally matters little to the traveling circus. On Sunday, the golfers will pack their bags and head to the Arizona desert, another tournament in the books, another weekend of work done. It isn't like that for John Merrick. He grew up in Long Beach, went to UCLA, then moved back to Long Beach.

The NHL levied a heavy penalty on Buffalo Sabres forward Patrick Kaleta, hitting the repeat offender with a 10-game suspension for his illegal check to the head of Columbia Blue Jackets defenseman Jack Johnson. He had an in-person hearing with the league Tuesday afternoon and has already served two games of the suspension. Brendan Shanahan, the NHL's chief disciplinarian, said in his video explanation that there would have been supplemental discipline assessed "no matter who delivered this hit. " But weighing heavily into the long suspension is the fact that Kaleta has been fined three times and suspended three other times in his career.

Four months ago, Justin Rose made a serious run at the British Open. That was the easy part. Now comes the real work for the 18-year-old Englishman. Since turning professional following his stunning fourth-place finish at Royal Birkdale--just two strokes behind winner Mark O'Meara--Rose has been painfully reminded that he's still, after all, a teenager. He's played eight tournaments since then--and missed every cut.

Reporting from Doral, Fla. -- Bubba Watson isn't all that fond of the TPC Blue Monster. "This golf course really doesn't suit me," Watson said Friday. "Not a big fan of No. 18. I normally play it really bad. " Imagine if he actually felt comfortable around the joint. Carving shots around the landscape that others might not even visualize, Watson chased down playing partner Justin Rose with a 10-under-par 62 at the WGC-Cadillac Championship that was that lowest seen around the Monster in a decade and one off the course record.

ROCHESTER, N.Y. - Beep, beep, beep. That's just the sound from moving day at the PGA Championship, where several of the second-round leaders shifted to reverse and backed up on a sun-splashed Saturday at Oak Hill Country Club. Wind appeared for the first time. It swirled just enough to sweep away the plethora of birdie chances that had defined the first two rounds. Only two of the final six golfers broke par 70. One of them, Jim Furyk, will take a one-shot lead over second-round leader Jason Dufner into Sunday's final round.
