Americans Wes Short Jr., Scott Dunlap, Scott Parel and Ken Duke topped the Senior British Open leaderboard together with England’s Paul Broadhurst when first-round play was suspended due to fading light. The leaders were a stroke ahead after a 3-under 67 at Royal Lytham & St. Annes. Parel will need to play a hole and Duke two holes on Friday to complete their first round.
Golf’s oldest championship is all about tradition, and this is one Francesco Molinari could have done without. Fifty-one weeks after he won the British Open and gazed at his name etched on the silver claret jug, he had to return it. Getting it back won’t be easy.
Francesco Molinari was the “other” guy, a check-your-program placeholder, somebody to watch Sunday when the wall-to-wall spectators blocked a clear vantage of the superstar in his pairing, Tiger Woods.
Zach Johnson and Kevin Kisner are more than just housemates this week. They share the lead in the British Open. Playing on opposites ends of a day that started with umbrellas and ended with shadows, they had a one-shot lead at Carnoustie. Tommy Fleetwood, Pat Perez and Xander Schauffele were one shot back heading into the weekend.
Sung Kang doesn’t plan to handle rulings any differently because he doesn’t think he did anything wrong when fellow PGA Tour player Joel Dahmen accused him of taking a bad drop three weeks ago.
Whether the turf is sun-baked or rain-soaked, brown or green, Carnoustie shows it can hold its own. In what might be the easiest conditions of the week, Kevin Kisner took only 22 putts, one of them a long eagle putt that sparked his round of 5-under-par 66 to lead the British Open by one shot.
Trailing for the first time all weekend at Royal Birkdale, Jordan Spieth followed with a birdie-eagle-birdie-birdie stretch that allowed him to close with a 1-under 69 and win the British Open by three shots over Matt Kuchar.
UNIVERSITY PLACE, Wash. – Rory McIlroy won the 2011 U.S. Open by eight strokes at Congressional but he hasn’t had much success in six other Opens, including the 115th edition at Chambers Bay. McIlroy says his scores haven’t reflected his solid ball-striking, and that was the case again Saturday during an even-par 70 that had the makings of a 65. He’s at 4-over 214 through three rounds, eight strokes behind the leaders.
UNIVERSITY PLACE, Wash. – As many U.S. golf fans mostly drooled and silently prayed, the boy next door, Jordan Spieth, hung tough in the U.S. Open here Saturday. You don’t play the horrors of Chambers Bay. You survive them. Whoever does that best today wins a big check, a big trophy and the title of King of Patience. If you allow yourself to be bewitched, bothered or even the slightest bit bewildered on one of these U.S. Golf Association courses designed to baffle, you won’t win.
UNIVERSITY PLACE, Wash. – Keith Ross was on the Chambers Bay driving range at 5:45 a.m. Monday, waiting for Tiger Woods to arrive. Instead, Dustin Johnson showed up. For 10 minutes, Johnson hit balls and Ross was the only one in the grandstands to see them soar into the distance.
UNIVERSITY PLACE, Wash. – Jordan Spieth was three shots clear of the U.S. Open field after rolling in a pair of early 30-plus-foot birdie putts. About 90 minutes later, he trailed Dustin Johnson by two.

UNIVERSITY PLACE, Wash. – Golf became secondary Friday afternoon when Jason Day collapsed near the ninth green, the last hole of his second round at the U.S. Open. Jordan Spieth, playing in the same group, tried to shield photographers from snapping pictures of a prone Day. A concerned Tiger Woods, knowing Day has been experiencing health issues, looked down anxiously from the upper tee box on No. 9. Players stopped practice sessions on the range to watch Day on a nearby big screen.
UNIVERSITY PLACE, Wash. – After Thursday’s 2-under 68, Jordan Spieth suggested he would be pleased with the same score for the next three rounds.

SANDWICH, England – Darren Clarke marched along bumpy fairways on a wild ride at Royal St. George’s that was filled with blunders and brilliance, and one final birdie that brought the kind of ovation he had not heard in a decade at the British Open. Right behind him was Lucas Glover, far more steady in closing his solid round with eight straight pars.
