Strategy is one of the topics that fascinates me most about golf because it combines multiple disciplines – expectation management, mental discipline, and numerical analysis.

Drones and Instagram have changed golf forever.

Matthew Wolff is 21 years and attempting to win the U.S. Open in his very first appearance. He will chase it in silence. It worked for another 20-something last month when Collin Morikawa won the PGA Championship. Is it about to happen again?
Matthew Wolff hit only two fairways Saturday and still matched the lowest score ever at Winged Foot in a major, a 5-under 65 that gave the 21-year-old Californian a 2-shot lead over Bryson DeChambeau going into the final round of the U.S. Open.
Ernie Els missed a chance to build a big lead during the second round of the PGA Tour Champions' Pure Insurance Championship at Pebble Beach on Saturday, but he holds a 1-stroke lead over Dicky Pride, with Jim Furyk and four others 2 shots back.
While there are no spectators on the property at Winged Foot Golf Club, that didn't stop those nearby with a view of the course from heckling Patrick Reed on Saturday. Reed had bigger problems, though, as he shot a 77 to fall 8 shots off the lead.
