HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. - Luke Donald remained in position to take the No. 1 ranking, shooting a 1-under 70 on Saturday for a 1-stroke lead over defending champion Jim Furyk in The Heritage. Donald, third in the world behind No. 1 Martin Kaymer and No. 2 Lee Westwood, would claim the top spot with a victory at Harbour Town, no matter how Westwood fares in the Indonesian Masters. Westwood took a 5-stroke lead in Jakarta, shooting his second straight 6-under 66 in the Asian Tour event.

NORTON, Mass. - Luke Donald finally made the right putts to get off to a good start. Now the world's No. 1 player would like to see how far that might take him in the Deutsche Bank Championship. Donald had a 5-under 66 on Friday at the TPC Boston and wound up 1 shot behind Troy Matteson. Even though Donald has three wins around the world and 10 finishes in the top 10, he has started slowly. Donald was headed that way again until making three straight par saves on the back nine to keep the momentum.

CASARES, Spain - Luke Donald will meet Martin Kaymer in the semifinals of the World Match Play Championship on Sunday, with the world's No. 1 ranking firmly in their sights after the elimination of top-ranked Lee Westwood. Westwood fell to Ryder Cup teammate Ian Poulter in the final 16 Saturday on the Finca Cortesin course. Second-ranked Donald struggled against Johan Edfors, needing a playoff to beat the Swedish outsider in the first knockout round. But he rediscovered his consistent best to defeat Masters champion Charl Schwartzel by 2 holes in the quarterfinals.

HOYLAKE, England - Jiyai Shin opened a 5-stroke lead in the Women's British Open, shooting an 8-under 64 on Saturday in the wind-delayed second round. Coming off a playoff victory Monday in the Kingsmill Championship, the 24-year-old South Korean player had a 9-under 135 total at Royal Liverpool. The nine-time LPGA Tour winner hit all 18 greens in regulation and needed only 28 putts. The 64 is the lowest round in competition at Royal Liverpool, breaking the mark of 65 set by four players in the 2006 British Open.

MEDINAH, Ill. - Erasing some of their worst Ryder Cup memories, the Europeans wore the image of Seve Ballesteros on their sleeves and played their hearts out Sunday at Medinah Country Club to match the greatest comeback in history and head home with that precious gold trophy. Europe got its payback for 1999 at Brookline, when the Americans roared back from the same 10-6 deficit. This rally was even more remarkable, carried out in front of a raucous American crowd that began its chants of "USA!"

Fuzzy Zoeller defended his Champions Skins Game title with new partner Ben Crenshaw by taking a dozen skins and $500,000 on the back nine yesterday in Kaanapali, Hawaii, to beat first-day leaders Greg Norman and Jay Haas.

Norman and Haas, who began the day with three skins and $90,000, added to their total with a par on the second playoff hole for the 18th-hole "superskin" worth $100,000.

ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates - Rory McIlroy opened his season by outplaying Tiger Woods on Thursday in the first round of the Abu Dhabi Golf Championship, shooting a 5-under 67 for a share of the lead. Woods shot a 70 in the threesome with McIlroy and top-ranked Luke Donald, who finished with a 71. Robert Karlsson tied for the lead, with Gareth Maybin and Richard Finch one shot back. Woods played bogey-free golf that produced few momentous shots and only two birdies. He missed several birdie chances.

All around him, players were making runs at the lead. Steve Stricker didn't flinch. He simply outlasted them. Stricker followed the lowest round of his career with 36 solid holes yesterday to win the John Deere Classic in Silvis, Ill., by three strokes. Stricker, who tied the course record Saturday, fired a 7-under 64 in the fourth round after starting the day with a third-round 68 to finish at 264 for the tournament. That was good enough to give him his second PGA Tour win this year and sixth in all, not to mention a heavy dose of momentum heading into the British Open to go with the $774,000 winnner's check.

PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. - Tiger Woods limped off the golf course and into an uncertain future. His return at The Players Championship from what he had described as a "minor injury" lasted only nine holes yesterday. Woods withdrew because of pain in his left knee and Achilles, but not before taking 42 shots for his worst nine-hole score on the TPC Sawgrass course. "I'm having a hard time walking," he said. Woods flexed his left knee after hitting tee shots. He took baby steps to climb out of a bunker.

SPRINGFIELD, N.J. -- The first round of the 98th PGA Championship gave hope to the underdogs of the golf world that someone could break through to make it a sweep of first-time winners in the four majors of 2016. It's not that many people would consider Jimmy Walker an underdog, given that he has won five times on the PGA Tour in the last two years and showed similar form Thursday at steamy Baltusrol Golf Club with a 5-under-par 65. But the 37-year-old from Texas, in his 10th year on tour, is winless in the majors and a recent slump has seen him slip to No. 48 in the world rankings.

OAKMONT, Pa. - The highlight of Thursday's weather-interrupted opening round of the U.S. Open? Well, for a select few, it might have been during the first suspension of play in the late morning, when the European threesome of Martin Kaymer, Lee Westwood and Luke Donald (and their caddies) found themselves stuck in the media dining tent at Oakmont Country Club taking in the pivotal England-Wales football match from the Euro Championships in France. What else were they going to be doing?

UNIVERSITY PLACE, Wash. - This is not the Phil we know. This Phil laid up with a 6-iron on a 304-yard par-4. This Phil had the lead, leaked oil on the back nine and said he was "really pleased to be under par. " This Phil said he was nervous at the start. This Phil missed putts on 16, 17 and 18 that would have made the crowd of faithful Phil-istines explode with cheers to echo over the Puget Sound and back again. Phil Mickelson has never won a U.S. Open. He has finished second a record six times.

PINEHURST, N.C. - When Martin Kaymer won his first major, the story wasn't totally about him. That's what happens when somebody grounds a club in the sand on the last hole of regulation to penalize himself out of what became a two-man playoff. See: Dustin Johnson. That was almost 4 years ago. And the way Kaymer's career had trended down, some wondered if he'd ever win another of the only four tournaments that truly elevate resumes. That's also been known to happen in this fickle, silly game.

PINEHURST, N.C. - He signed and signed and signed in the hot evening sun. As his fellow also-rans finished behind him on the 18th green at Pinehurst No. 2, he signed flags and hats and shirts; then, on his way down the steps to the locker room, he heard a woman holler from the overhanging porch: "Phil! Phil! Phil! Please, for my dad, Phil!" With that, golf's most credited dad stretched the length of his 6-3 frame, snared the dangling ticket with a tanned, manicured hand, signed his name one last time and disappeared, to even more cheers.

PINEHURST, N.C. - All one needs to know about Erik Compton, a two-time heart transplant recipient, could be found Sunday by his play on the 18th hole at the U.S. Open after Martin Kaymer already had cemented the victory. "I hit the world's worst shot in to the green and got up and down" for par, Compton said after tying for second place with Rickie Fowler in only his second Open appearance. "You can't ever give up. We all have adversity in our lives. Some are different than others, some are more major.

PINEHURST, N.C. - After firing back-to-back 65s on the first two days of the U.S. Open, Martin Kaymer declined to set goals for the weekend, knowing anything could happen - particularly on the firm and fast layout known as Pinehurst No. 2. "I'm not really into goals," Kaymer said. "I just want to play. " Wow, did he ever. Thanks to steely nerves and an incredible display of putting, Kaymer lapped the field in the 114th national championship. He closed with a 69 Sunday and won by 8 strokes.

After Martin Kaymer made golf look so effortless at the demanding Pinehurst No. 2 course through the first two days of the U.S. Open, he showed Saturday that the game can come back and bite. However, despite some wayward drives and misread putts, Kaymer lost just 1 stroke off his substantial margin from the day before and entered Sunday's final round of the 114th national championship with a 5-shot lead. The golf wasn't nearly as pristine for the 29-year-old German, who became the first contestant in U.S. Open history to card back-to-back rounds of 65. But he still tied for the third-best 54-hole score ever at an Open, 8-under-par 202, after a 72 that he punctuated with a 10-foot birdie putt at No. 18. "Obviously after the first two days, for me, it's OK to hit some poor shots once in a while, so it was acceptable," Kaymer said.

PINEHURST, N.C. - Martin Kaymer went where not even Tiger Woods has gone. Or anyone else. Less than 24 hours after the 29-year-old German opened the 114th U.S. Open with a 5-under-par 65 at Pinehurst No. 2, he did it again yesterday, which history tells us should be impossible. The 2010 PGA champion, whose win at last month's The Players Championship was his first in 3 years, extended his lead from three shots to six halfway through the season's second major. The only others who ever led by that much after 36 holes were Woods in 2000 and Rory McIlroy 3 years ago. Kaymer's 130 is one lower than the Open record set by McIlroy at Congressional, which played as a par 71. The only other man thought to to post consecutive 65s in a major was David Toms, in the middle two rounds of the 2001 PGA in Atlanta that he eventually won by one over Phil Mickelson.

PINEHURST, N.C. – Many U.S. Open observers thought firm and fast conditions, the turtle-backed greens, and tufts of gnarly grass in waste areas would cause a high percentage of golfers to struggle with the No. 2 course at Pinehurst Resort and Country Club. At the halfway point of the 114th national championship, that high percentage does not include Martin Kaymer. The 29-year-old former PGA champion from Germany enjoyed a record-setting day Friday at the Open. He fired his second consecutive 5-under-par 65 and set a 36-hole scoring mark of 130. His 6-stroke lead over Brendon Todd tied another Open record.
