UNIVERSITY PLACE, Wash. — Henrik Stenson compared the greens to broccoli, except broccoli is green and the greens are brown. Ian Poulter said Chambers Bay would turn the U.S. Open into “a complete farce,” but he conceded his comments were constructed from hearsay.

But Jim Furyk, who 12 years ago won a U.S. Open on a course very different from this year’s — old-fashioned Olympia Fields south of Chicago — described Chambers in less emotional terms.

San Francisco Examiner

San Francisco? Herb Caen’s cool, gray city of love? Rudyard Kipling’s town of mad people? Golf capital of the universe? Indeed, all of the above.

S.F. Examiner: Spieth has waited a year to be back in this position

By Art Spander
San Francisco Examiner

AUGUSTA, Ga. — He's one day and 18 holes from a dream. Jordan Spieth still is in front of the Masters. Three rounds, and nobody else has caught him. Now comes the round that matters, the round that means whether he gets the championship or more disappointment.

There's a theory that a golfer who challenges hard at Augusta one year often returns and wins the next year. Spieth, at 21, can only hope it holds true. And his game holds up.
