A robot just pulled off the best possible move in the game of golf.
Today’s final round of the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines was delayed due to rain, but play resumed around 11:00 Pacific time. Despite this, Golf Channel is currently airing tape-delayed rain delay coverage. We can only assume the GC is borrowing from its NBCUniversal sibling’s Olympics bag of tricks, but golf…
Jason Day held off Jordan Spieth to win this weekend’s PGA Championship at Whistling Straits, seizing his first major after finishing three times as a runner-up—and doing it in record-setting fashion.
Minus the cameraman’s terrible angle, this is a pretty sweet putt by reigning Players Championship winner Rickie Fowler on the fourth hole at the Quicken Loans National. At 70 feet, it’s still 41 feet off Craig Barlow’s PGA record, but it’ll do.
Zach Johnson claimed his second career major today at St. Andrews after dispatching Louis Oosthuizen and Marc Leishman in a four-hole playoff to claim the Open Championship.
Tiger Woods missed the cut at The Open by seven strokes after shooting a second round 75 Saturday. It’s the second straight major championship Woods has failed to reach the end of, the first time in his career he’s missed the cut at consecutive majors.

That ankle injury that Rory McIlroy suffered while playing soccer will indeed keep the golfer out of this year’s British Open. McIlroy announced that he’ll be missing the tournament with a sad Instagram post:
After a weekend of gripes about the state of Chambers Bay and the difficulty of the course, Jordan Spieth delivered a masterful second shot on the par-5 18th hole, one that played the wild geometry of the green like a putt-putt course and set the reigning Masters champion up for a two-putt birdie that awarded him…
It’s the final round of the U.S. Open, and viewers have had myriad and legitimate gripes about Fox in its first year as the tournament’s official broadcaster. One common theme has highlighted the network’s announcers and their lack of knowledge or preparation; here’s an example, in which former British Open champion…
Jason Day collapsed while walking on the 9th fairway at Chambers Bay while trying to finish his final hole of the second round. It made for a terrifying scene as orange-shirted medics treated the Australian PGA pro, who sat tied for seventh place at the time of the incident. Day has a history of dizzy spells; Fox…
The par-5 eighth at Chambers Bay turned ugly for Tiger Woods today, as his attempt to bounce back at the U.S. Open already finds the three-time champ four over par. He actually managed to par this, despite losing a handle on things.
Justin Rose was co-leading today’s Memorial at Muirfield Village when, on the 18th, his bunker shot went awry and brained a spectator whose reflexes or attention span weren’t enough to avoid it.
Rickie Fowler responded to his fellow golfers’ declaring him “most overrated” by beating out Sergio Garcia and Kevin Kisner in a Players Championship playoff on a Sunday that found him carding three separate birdies on the TPC Sawgrass 17th “Island Green”—a hole that averaged over par for the tournament.

Jim Furyk defeated J.B. Holmes five-and-three today at the Match Play, and Holmes’s situation certainly wasn’t helped on the 10th when his shot bounced off a tree and right onto a spectator’s dome. The chap went down hard, and if you listen closely to this replay you can hear the ball crack against his skull:
