From a Golf Channel press release.

ORLANDO, Fla. (June 21, 2017) – The PGA TOUR heads to Connecticut for the Travelers Championship, where three of the world’s top-6 players – Rory McIlroy (No. 3), Jason Day (No. 4) and Jordan Spieth (No. 6) – are in the field. Fellow top-10 players in the world – Sergio Garcia and Henrik Stenson – are in Germany this week for the BMW International Open, where Stenson looks to defend his 2016 title, which came just weeks before the Swede’s first major win. The PGA TOUR Champions head to Wisconsin for the second annual American Family Insurance Championship, with Steve Stricker scheduled to tee it up in his home state. Lydia Ko and Michelle Wie headline the field at...

HITTING NEWSSTANDS TOMORROW, the next issue of Sports Illustrated features U.S. Open champion Brooks Koepka, who owned Erin Hills last week with a 16-under par performance that put him in the record books.

The cover story written by senior writer Alan Shipnuck includes this observation from U.S. Ryder Cup assistant captain Steve Stricker:

"[Koepka] looks like he wants to fight you… He looks like he wants to punch you in the mouth. That's what I like about him—he's got an edge. For sure it's intimidating to play against. You get a guy who is built like a linebacker and pounds the crap out of the ball, and then looks...​

Phil and Bones have officially split.

It doesn’t get any better than this exchange from 2012. pic.twitter.com/zll38kLHsh

IT'S OVER. BOTH RELEASING STATEMENTS, Phil Mickelson and his caddie Jim "Bones" Mackay announced they are moving on from an on-course working relationship that dates back to 1992.

As far as I know, the news comes as a complete surprise to the golf world. It might be more shocking than Brooks Koepka's record performance at the U.S. Open or the DUI for Tiger Woods.

A Phil and Bones breakup? No way. They smiled, they talked and talked and talked, they joked, they seemed like brothers.

"Player-caddie relationships don't often last that long," Mackay said in his statement. "I wish Phil nothing but the best. His game is still at an elite level, and when he wins in the future (definitely the Masters), I will...

OF COURSE, FATHER'S DAY IS SUNDAY, and I'd say that Davis Love III caddying for his son Dru at Erin Hills is near the top of feel-good stories.

The elder Love spoke to Golf Channel earlier in the week about carrying for his son.

"It has been exciting for Dru," Love said. "I got him through the local qualifying and then he made it on to the sectional on his own while I was trying to play. Obviously this week playing in his first major championship in his first week as a professional, it is pretty incredible to be on the bag.

"People have been asking me, 'Don’t you wish you were playing?' I don't think I'd rather be playing than to get to do this. What a great...

Rickie Fowler hits his tee shot on the 18th hole
during the first round of the U.S. Open.

IN SEARCH OF HIS FIRST MAJOR, Rickie Fowler took a big step on Thursday at Erin Hills in Wisconsin. Fowler fired a sizzling 65 that included no bogeys to grab the lead in the 2017 U.S. Open.

"You don't get many rounds at the U.S. Open that are stress-free," Fowler said. "I've been swinging well all through the start of the week. It was nice getting off to a quick start."

As USA Today reported, Fowler birdied three of his first five holes and striped the ball all day long. He hit 12 of 14 fairways and 15 of 18 greens in regulation. It didn't hurt that he played in the...

HERE'S THE GOLF COURSE EVERYONE is talking about this week.

Or complaining. Or whining. Or cussing.


Erin Hills will be set up at 7,741 yards and will play to a par of 36-36—72. The yardage for each round of the championship will vary due to course setup and conditions.

Erin Hills, located 35 miles northwest of Milwaukee in the Kettle Moraine region, was designed by the team of Dr. Michael Hurdzan, Dana Fry and Ron Whitten. The public facility opened for play in 2006. Covering 652 acres, the area was host to icy fingers and streams from the last glacier to cover south central Wisconsin. The course features bentgrass greens and fine fescue fairways. The design team oversaw a major renovation to the layout in...

Let's take a moment to talk about @KingJames' golf swing... #NBAFinals ( via @Samsung) pic.twitter.com/dG6rQqzhpk

HE MAY BE KING JAMES ON THE COURT, but LeBron is something else altogether on the course. He clearly needs more range time. A lot more. The offseason is coming soon.
