  1. The End of a Brilliant Summer: Rory at the Ryder Cup

    Shane Ryan

    As iconic moments go, a few stood out in Europe's emphatic, 16.5-11.5 Ryder Cup victory in Gleneagles. There was, of course, the clincher -- Jamie Donaldson's wedge on 15 that stopped two feet from the pin, setting off a champagne...

  2. The Ryder Cup Preview: Massive, Unhinged, Scottish

    Shane Ryan

    Long after I've become a twisted, bitter shell of my younger, better self (I give it two to three years), there will remain one sporting event that inspires in me those old feelings of drama, history, and romance. That event is the Ryder Cup. Th...

  3. Rory McIlroy Becomes Iconic at the PGA Championship

    Shane Ryan

    On the sixth hole at Valhalla, on Sunday, play was so backed up that Rory McIlroy and Bernd Wiesberger, playing in the final group, arrived at the tee to find Phil Mickelson and Rickie Fowler waiting for the fairway to clear so they could hit their d...

  4. The Rory Coaster Reaches Its Apex at the British Open

    Shane Ryan

    There's never really been a period of time when it has been boring to be Rory McIlroy, but it's a fair guess that 2014 is already a strong contender for Most Interesting Year of His Life. Entering the season, the two-time major champion and...

  5. Just Another Day

    Shane Ryan

    Sportswriters crave thoughtful quotes from the athletes they cover, and we set the bar very low. Give us anything - the lame joke, the trite observation - and we'll eat it up. It's part of the agreement, and both sides have lear...

    Robert Mays

    Thomas Dimitroff doesn't look like he runs an NFL team. In a profession where Ted Thompson and his Packers-sponsored golf outfit are the standard, the Falcons' general manager looks like few of his colleagues. Rams GM Les Snead ha...

    Wesley Morris

    I feel bad for Rickie Fowler. Last week, he spent the opening round of the U.S. Open in knickerbockers - white, pleated ones. The Easter-egg blue in his argyle socks went with the mini checks in his golf shirt. Payne Stewart was on his mind...

  9. The Uncensored 2014 U.S. Open Power Rankings

    Shane Ryan

    I just realized something: Unlike the other American majors, the U.S. Open lacks a sweet tagline. The Masters has "a tradition unlike any other," and the PGA Championship is "glory's last shot." Both pretty cool, right? But o...

    Charles P. Pierce

    To paraphrase Mr. Hemingway's famous reply to Mr. Fitzgerald - yes, the rich are different from you and me: They have more money than us, and a great many of them are a special kind of moron. Those of us who foll...
