RORY MCILROY HAS PULLED OUT of the Olympic Games, joining Adam Scott, Louis Oosthuizen, Charl Schwartzel, Marc Leishman and Vijay Singh. ESPN.com reports that Rickie Fowler might be next.

The Olympic golf movement is in shambles, and, based on what I read, the entire Rio Games seem to be hanging by a thread. Sad stuff, to be sure.

McIlroy's statement:

THE USGA DOESN'T CALL THIS an apology. But I think we can call it an apology. It registers a 10 on the regret meter.

USGA Statement Regarding Dustin Johnson Ruling

The USGA wishes to congratulate Dustin Johnson on his victory and thank him, and the other players in the field, for their professionalism and grace throughout the championship. Dustin is a wonderful champion, a talented golfer and a gentleman.

Our team at the USGA has seen...

SHANE LOWRY CONFESSED HE WAS "bitterly disappointed" to blow a four-shot lead but insisted that Dustin Johnson deserved his US Open triumph despite a rules decision delay that took some drama out of the back nine. The 29-year old from Offaly dropped three shots on the front nine to fall behind, then three-putted the 14th, 15th and 16th and carded a six over 76 to end up tied for second, three behind the eventual champion on one under.

Though he birdied the last and the scoreboard showed a 68 for a four shot win on five under par, Johnson was handed a...

PHIL MICKELSON HAS FINISHED SECOND a half dozen times in the U.S. Open. At age 46, can Lefty finally break through and win the national championship?

He certainly thinks so. And in the above clip he tells why Oakmont and his experience give him a great chance this year.

Midway through his opening round, Phil is 1 under and sits three shots off the lead set by Andrew Landry.
