Alexander: At U.S. Open, rough (again) may be the story

It is a ritual, part of the tradition of the U.S. Open. The U.S. Golf Association, which runs this tournament, endeavors to make that year’s course as demanding (diabolical?) as possible. The players sigh, shake their heads but refrain from squawking as loudly as earlier generations of pros did. They know it’s coming, after all. And while some in the viewing audience nod their heads knowingly when the game’s stars get a taste of the difficulty everyday hackers routinely experience … well, don’t ...

Alexander: Yuka Saso, Lexi Thompson both make history at U.S. Women’s Open

We do not know how aware Lexi Thompson is of the history of U.S. Opens at San Francisco’s Olympic Club. We do know, however, that she became part of an unfortunate historical quirk Sunday afternoon. Four times, the men’s U.S. Open has been played on that historic track. Each time, the leader after 54 holes wasn’t the one still standing at the end. Sunday, in the first U.S. Women’s Open played at Olympic, Thompson led by a shot over Filipino teenager Yuka Saso coming into the round, by five shots...

Alexander: Irvine’s Rose Zhang takes aim at U.S. Women’s Open

When last we talked to Irvine’s Rose Zhang, in April of 2020, she was limited to hitting golf balls in her garage, idled because of the COVID-19 lockdown.  “I have a little range area in my garage,” she said then. “I just hit balls and then putt. There’s not much you can do.” Later in the year her left wrist started bothering her, with what was first believed to be tendinitis but turned out to be a wrist impingement, and she said earlier this year overdoing it in the garage probably had a lot to...

Whicker: It’s a major, so Brooks Koepka will have to be dealt with

Like some ominous Low Country beast, Brooks Koepka rose out of the marshlands Thursday. If the rest of the PGA Championship field could lock the doors, it would. A double bogey on his opening hole, the 10th at the Ocean Course, did not chase him away. Neither did the wind patterns that have dominated every conversation. The clattering of trashcan lids might not work either. Koepka, the 2018 and 2019 PGA champ, filled his pockets with six birdies and shot 3-under-par 69, which had him tied for th...
