"Golf is still the best job I've ever had," Ogilvy said Thursday. "I'd prefer to do it while I still can - if I still can. I don't know. I feel like I can." Read More...

Rivalry in golf about tours, not players

PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. (AP) — Jon Rahm began his year by winning two in a row on the PGA Tour. Rory McIlroy began his year with birdies on the last two holes to win in Dubai.
