GULLANE, Scotland - The last five days must feel like a blur to 19-year-old Jordan Spieth. He won the John Deere Classic on Sunday for his first professional win, which qualified him for the British Open. He flew on a charter overnight to Scotland. He saw Muirfield for the first time. And then he went out Thursday and shot a 69, one of only 14 rounds in the 60s. Perhaps even more impressive is that Spieth had only one bogey, dropping a shot on the par-3 fourth hole. He birdied two of the par 5s and added another birdie on the short par-4 third hole.

AUGUSTA, Ga. - For someone who is 21 years old and is playing in the Masters for just the second time in his life, Jordan Spieth possesses the game and the demeanor of an Augusta National Golf Club veteran while maintaining the youthful exuberance to use the word "cool" a lot. Indeed, Spieth was the coolest customer on a hot day Thursday amid the azaleas and the dogwoods, carding nine birdies in a near-record-tying round of 8-under-par 64 that was...

Jason Day nearly dropped out of the Byron Nelson Championship before it began. He wound up winning the tournament - even though most folks likely will remember Jordan Spieth as the big winner. Day fought through a rocky final round for a 2-over 72, but it was good enough to give the 22-year-old Australian the first win of his PGA Tour career. Still, the 2010 Nelson will go down for the remarkable Tour debut by Spieth, a 16-year-old junior at a local Dallas-area high school.

VANCOUVER, British Columbia - Bo Van Pelt birdied four of his last five holes Saturday to finish with a 65 and a 1-stroke lead after three rounds of the RBC Canadian Open. Canadian Adam Hadwin, playing on a sponsor's exemption, finished with a 68, alone in second at 4-under-par 206. Andres Romero (67) and first-round leader Kris Blanks (69) were tied for third, 2 shots back, at Shaughnessy Golf and Country Club. West Chester's Sean O Hair shot a 66 and was at 2 under with John Daly (67)

DUMB AND DUMBER were at the Mets' home opener against the Phillies yesterday. Bottom of the fourth. One out. Mets second baseman Daniel Murphy hits a double deep to rightfield. The Phillies' Grady Sizemore chases it down when two idiots, sitting field level in the first row behind a chain-link fence, try to douse the outfielder with beer. Idiot No. 1 was clearly visible on the television feed. Wearing a Mets jersey, he propelled the liquid from his cup with a feeble underhanded motion.

Cameron Beckman arrived at the Byron Nelson Championship yesterday in jeopardy of missing the cut. He left in first place. Beckman tied the TPC Four Seasons course record - and set a personal best - with a 61 in the second round in the PGA Tour event in Irving, Texas. He's at 10-under 130, tied for the lead with rookie Blake Adams. First round co-leader Jason Day is alone at 131. Adams, a 34-year-old rookie who spent the last 3 years on the Nationwide Tour, was part of a cluster at the top after the first round, piled up six birdies on his way to a 64. The rest of the leaderboard includes 16-year-old Jordan Spieth, a local high school junior who became the sixth-youngest player ever to make the cut at a PGA event.

Kiyoshi Murota shot a 5-under-par 67 yesterday to take a four-stroke lead in the Senior PGA Championship over a glittering scoreboard that includes Nick Price, Hale Irwin and Tom Watson. The 55-year-old touring pro and golf teacher from Japan followed an opening 66 to stand at 11-under 133 in the Champions Tour's major tournament at Valhalla Golf Club in Louisville, Ky. Price was one of 78 players who had to return to the course yesterday morning to complete the first round because of weather delays.

Americans Mark Calcavecchia and Lee Rinker had a two-shot lead after two rounds of the Senior British Open yesterday. Calcavecchia - one of three overnight leaders - made six birdies in his 3-under-par 69. He was joined at 7-under by Rinker and Canada's Rod Spittle, who each shot 67 at Walton Heath in Walton on the Hill, England. It's the first time since 2004 that at least three players have held a share of the lead after 36 holes of a Senior British Open. Australian Peter Fowler was two shots back after a 68, with American pair John Cook (67)

For Temple's Brandon Matthews, improvement in his short game and his putting, which leads to a reduction in the pressure he puts on other parts of his game, has resulted in better finishes this season. Going into Sunday's start of the American Athletic Conference golf championships, the 6-foot-4 junior has won three tournaments (all in succession), tied for second, and tied for third. That success follows his victory in December in the prestigious Dixie Amateur at Coral Springs, Fla. "I may not be hitting it the absolute best I can," Matthews said earlier this week, "but my up-and-downs have been very, very good.

AUGUSTA, Ga. - Tiger Woods was unable to kick his game up another notch Sunday in the final round of the Masters, but he was pleased with his return to competition after a horrendous start to the year. Woods, who injured his right wrist at No. 9 but kept playing, carded a 1-over-par 73 for a 72-hole score of 5-under 283, tied for 17th. He had an eagle and two birdies, all coming on Augusta National's par-5s, but added five bogeys. For the day, he managed to hit just two fairways and seven greens.

AUGUSTA, Ga. - The people who follow professional golf always have sought the next great player since before the days of Arnold Palmer. They found one 18 years ago at the Masters where 21-year-old Tiger Woods set records that few thought would ever be approached. Then Jordan Spieth came along last year and displayed his talent and his competitive nature right away, entering the final 18 holes of his first Masters with a share of the lead. Although he eventually lost to Bubba Watson, he created a buzz where people expected he would contend again someday at Augusta National Golf Club.

AUGUSTA, Ga. - The birdies for Jordan Spieth in his first 52 holes of the Masters were flowing like the waters of Rae's Creek as he became only the second player in the history of this venerable event to reach 18-under par. But golf can be a cruel game, and Spieth felt it smack him Saturday at the 17th hole of Augusta National Golf Club, where a bad drive, a bad chip, and a couple of bad putts led to a double bogey and gave hope to pursuers Phil Mickelson...

AUGUSTA, Ga. - Before Jordan Spieth went out for another record-breaking day at the Masters, the hills and dales at Augusta National Golf Club reverberated with roars generated by the contestants who figured to be the two most watched at the start of the week. Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy, who teed off 30 minutes apart in the third round Saturday, both created buzz in the galleries by carding scores of 4-under-par 32 on the front nine. Alas, each came home in 36 for 68. Although tied for fifth at 6-under 210, they will play together in Sunday's final round 10 strokes behind Spieth.

AUGUSTA, Ga. – For Tiger Woods, the fact that he shot his first round in the 60s at the Masters since the final day of the 2011 event was a cause for optimism, and not just because he made the 36-hole cut easily. Woods, in his first competition in two months, notched four birdies in a 3-under-par 69 that put him in a tie for 19th place at 142. Even though he is 12 shots behind record-breaking 36-hole leader Jordan Spieth, Woods' mantra is "anything can happen" at Augusta National Golf Club.

AUGUSTA, Ga. – The old saying is that records are made to be broken. But as any wily veteran Masters watcher will tell you, they're not made to be broken by a 21-year-old who has played a mere six competitive rounds at the Augusta National Golf Club. Then again, a special young talent like Jordan Spieth comes around, like, once every 18 years, just as a 21-year-old Tiger Woods did in 1997 when he ran away to a 12-stroke victory before a multitude of disbelieving onlookers for his first of four green jackets.

AUGUSTA, Ga. - They've been playing major golf championships for, well, quite a while now. Before yesterday, nobody had ever been 14-under-par at the halfway point in any of them. Jordan Spieth, your 21-year-old defending Masters runner-up, has changed that. Just as he might end up changing a bunch of things, maybe even before he approaches middle age. The Texas native, who has family ties to the Lehigh Valley, shot a 6-under 66 in the second round at Augusta National yesterday.
