PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. - Hunter Mahan was bracing for the worst of Pebble Beach, his golf bag weighed down with rain gear and everything else to handle nasty weather. Instead, he was reminded how much he loves this place. It helps that Mahan drilled a 3-wood onto the 18th green for a 2-putt birdie that gave him a 6-under 66 and a share of the lead to par with Russell Knox in the Pebble Beach National Pro-Am. Better yet, the rain everyone was expecting early in the afternoon never showed up. So when Mahan was asked about the most interesting part of the day, all he could think of was that it was boring - in a good way. "I had a good time with my partner.

MARANA, Ariz. - Matt Kuchar finally put Hunter Mahan in a hole and went on to capture the Match Play Championship on Sunday. Mahan went 169 straight holes without trailing in this event until Kuchar won the fourth hole with a par and was on his way.

For all the great shots, the match ended when Mahan went from bunker to desert in taking 4 shots to reach the 17th green. Kuchar won, 2 and 1, when Mahan conceded his birdie putt.

Hunter Mahan shot an 8-under 62 yesterday to take the first-round lead in the Travelers Championship before rain suspended play with 39 golfers still on the course. The round was one stroke off the course record and it was his sixth consecutive round in the 60s at the TPC at River Highlands in Cromwell, Conn. "It's one of the courses that you look at it and you feel comfortable," said Hunter, who finished second in last year's tournament. "There's not really a shot here that I worry about.

MARANA, Ariz. - Hunter Mahan stopped Rory McIlroy's march to No. 1 by winning the Match Play Championship. Mahan built a 4-up lead through 10 holes at Dove Mountain, then held off the 22-year-old from Northern Ireland to capture his second World Golf Championship title. McIlroy defeated Lee Westwood in a semifinal match Sunday morning. He could have replaced Luke Donald at No. 1 in the world by winning the tournament. But he fell behind with a series of mistakes on the front nine and could never catch up. With his 2-and-1 victory, Mahan becomes the first American to win the Match Play Championship since Tiger Woods in 2008.

DORAL, Fla. - Tiger Woods was on his game, and so were most of the world's best golfers Thursday in the Cadillac Championship. Except for the world's No. 1 player.

Ricky Barnes switched from a plain black shirt to a festive Hawaiian number between the morning and afternoon rounds of the U.S. Amateur championship match. Good thing he was ready to party, too.

"I'm on top of the world right now," said Barnes, a senior at Arizona. "I'm sure we will stay up and have some fun tonight.

PINEHURST, N.C. – Putting continues to be a source of frustration for Phil Mickelson at the U.S. Open, and he admitted Friday that it is affecting his overall play. Mickelson, a six-time runner-up in the Open, saw a promising start to his second round go sour, and his 3-over-par round of 73 left him at 143 and far off the blistering pace set by Martin Kaymer. The 34 putts he needed on the day said it all. "I feel like I'm playing well enough to win except for putting," he said.

PITTSFORD, N.Y. - After he left the Canadian Open despite holding the 36-hole lead and ended his day holding newborn Zoe Olivia Mahan, first-time father Hunter Mahan felt a need to visit Twitter for the view from outside. "Usually on Twitter, they tell me how much I [stink] all the time and how dumb I am," Mahan said, "so I figured somebody would say, 'You're an idiot. You didn't know what you were doing.' But I didn't see that. Maybe I didn't look far enough down. " But it wasn't that way on Twitter or anywhere else in the world.

PITTSFORD, N.Y. - Hunter Mahan entered his third round at the Canadian Open at Glen Abbey Golf Club with a two-shot lead. He was coming off a course record 62 that Friday in an event in which the winner takes home a little more than $1 million. Instead, he got a phone call on the practice range that he would be taking something home that weekend that was worth much more than the million-dollar tournament prize. His wife, Kandi, had gone into labor with their first child. The decision, for him, was an easy one. He was going to be there for the birth of Zoe Olivia Mahan.

GULLANE, Scotland - Lee Westwood has contended enough in the majors that he can identify important moments, even if he could barely see his ball. He had a 1-shot lead over Tiger Woods, standing in grass up to his knees in the dunes left of the par-3 16th hole. It was one of the few bad shots Westwood hit Saturday at Muirfield, and by far his worst predicament. He slashed at the ball and it didn't reach the green. He used a putter to belt his next shot up the hill to 12 feet. What followed was a finish that allowed him to believe he was closer than ever to ending his 20-year pursuit of a major.

Hunter Mahan's face was reddened by the sun, his voice rubbed rough by a week of talking about Merion, his body tensed by the nearness of a first major championship. "This course," Mahan said as a sun-splashed Saturday faded to dusk, "tests you from tee to green. " On moving day at the 2013 U.S. Open, the one Mahan made was both small and large. His 69 bested par by a single stroke. But on a day when most of the field again marched backward, his total of par 210 was good enough to leave him in a tie for second with South Africa's Charl Schwartzel and Steve Stricker.

PHIL MICKELSON stood in the hallowed halls of Merion's clubhouse, just feet from where he teed off 4 hours earlier, and was asked to describe the feeling of finishing second in the U.S. Open for the sixth time. "It's very heartbreaking," Mickelson said. "I feel like this was my best chance on a course I loved. " Merion loved Mickelson back. But it was his putter that betrayed him. Here's a look at walking all 18 holes with Lefty, during a round that was as sideways as it was up and down: 3:14 p.m.: With well more than $1 billion net worth serenading Mickelson with "Happy Birthday" from Merion's members' tent off the first tee, Phil plants his tee in the ground as the only player in the U.S. Open under par for the tournament.

Hunter Mahan hung around for 14 holes and was tied for the lead at several points in Sunday's final round of the U.S. Open. But the 31-year-old from Dallas refused to look back on the missed opportunity and a final four holes that dropped him from a first-place tie to 4 strokes back of winner Justin Rose. "I stepped on the tee today knowing I was going to win, and left the 18th green knowing I could win," Mahan said. "It's all good. " But Mahan, who entered the final round a stroke back of leader Phil Mickelson, will certainly reflect upon his misfortune on 15 when he surveys his eighth Open.

THEY WARM UP on the launching pad, rocket into the sky, explode into a thousand shiny sparks . . . then, most often, they just sort of drift back to Earth. There is nothing wrong with Earth, of course. Not every golfer can exist in the stratosphere of Phil Mickelson, and none has ever reached the orbit of Tiger Woods. But some seem to tickle the upper edge of the troposphere, find it a little too cold for their liking and descend to a more comfortable cruising altitude. At Merion, given its fickle lines and its alien status, one of those players gliding just below the game's superstars has an excellent chance to break through.
