CHICAGO - Kevin Streelman has been doing the stay-at-home dad thing, such as comforting daughter Sophia as she watched little brother Rhett get a buzz cut. It will grow back, he promised. Also making a comeback: Streelman's vocation and passion - professional golf. The three-time PGA Tour winner is playing this week in the Scottsdale Open, a Tuesday-Thursday minitour event near his Arizona ...

FARMINGDALE, N.Y. - The vibe is different from the time he walks into the room. News conferences with Tiger Woods through the years, and particularly at major championships, were stubborn contests of will. How many ways could reporters ask a similar question, only to get the same terse, rote answer? It was as if Woods could write volumes of insight into golf and himself, but chose to make a ...

Traditionally, the PGA Championship is the Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor of the majors - adorable, certainly, but hopelessly far down the line of succession, poor thing. That never has been fair because the field for this tournament always is loaded. This year, for instance, 99 of the world's top 100 players are expected to sally forth Thursday. Would have been a perfect 100 had Justin ...

The setting is familiar, and so is the man who's favored to win one of golf's biggest tournaments. But the date? Well, it just feels a little weird. Yes, the PGA Championship is already here. The best golfers in the world will tee it up Thursday through Sunday with a major on the line at Bethpage State Park's Black Course on Long Island in New York.

When Tiger Woods won the Masters last weekend, it was a moment many thought would never happen. Woods has been one of the most important figures in modern sports because of the way he rocketed into golf and exemplified excellence. He is second all-time on the list of wins (81) and majors (15), and reintroduced a generation to a tradition like no other. It was hard to think a time could come ...

AUGUSTA, Ga. - Tiger Woods faced this question: Should Jack Nicklaus be worried about his record 18 majors? "Well, I don't know if he's worried or not," Woods replied, later adding: "I'm just enjoying 15." Perhaps he'd also enjoy these 15 takeaways from one of the most memorable Masters in history: 1. This place always delivers. Sunday drama at the Masters is a given. The risk-reward holes on ...

Tiger Woods gave golf a much-needed boost with his run at the PGA Championship last week. It helped put the sport back on the national stage. NASCAR feels it had a similar moment when Chase Elliott finally won his first race earlier this month at Watkins Glen. "That really was a big moment," said Kurt Busch, among a few drivers on hand for a tire test at Texas Motor Speedway recently. "It's ...

ST. LOUIS - The fist pump for the birdie at the 18th was demonstrative, but didn't have the same ferocity as the celebration a decade ago at Torrey Pines. The result was not a major triumph, but a significant step in an extraordinary comeback. Tiger Woods didn't win the PGA Championship on Sunday, but it sure felt that way for much of a loud and raucous day at Bellerive Country Club. When ...

Sometime during the decade when Tiger Woods dominated professional golf - and the word "dominated" doesn't really do justice to exactly what he did - I thought a good column would be asking his fellow pros if they were getting a little tired of it. The man was winning everything, or winning so often that it seemed as if it was everything. Between 1999 and 2009, Woods recorded 64 of his 79 PGA ...
