In ESPN The Magazine, Bob Harig writes that Phil Mickelson is the greatest loser in U.S. Open history -- and we mean that in a good way (sort of). But will Pinehurst be the place where Left finally makes it all right?
Adam Scott didn't luck into being world No. 1, but if the Aussie owns any plans at a prolonged stay in the top spot, he'll have to keep up his consistent play in the biggest events, writes ESPN.com's Bob Harig.
Jack Nicklaus will make a rare competitive golf appearance next week when he teams with Gary Player at a newly reconfigured Legends of Golf event -- although the Golden Bear scoffed at his own golf abilities.
After plenty of fanfare, none of the four players who had a chance to overtake Tiger Woods for No. 1 in the Official World Golf Ranking will make it to the top spot after their performances in the Players Championship.
Adam Scott could have stayed in the Bahamas, watched the Players Championship from his couch, and moved to No. 1 in the world this week for the first time in his career. Perhaps he wishes he had chosen that option.
