Greg DePalma, Jeff Shain and Pro Golf Weekly‘s Joel Cook take an in-depth look at the Open Championship, as golf’s top names descend on Royal Birkdale for the 10th time. Few favorites arrive on form, and Birkdale tends to reward those who already have major-championship pedigrees. Also, a review of last week’s U.S. Women’s Open, Senior Players Championship and other news.

Greg DePalma, Jeff Shain and Pro Golf Weekly‘s Joel Cook take on a jam-packed set of tournament previews – not only the John Deere Classic and Scottish Open as final tuneups for the Open Championship, but majors elsewhere at the U.S. Women’s Open and Senior Players Championship. The latest Open Championship odds also get a look.
Golf: Bones Mackay is trading in his caddie bib for a TV microphone starting next week. Before attention turns overseas, though, a presidential shadow is cast over the U.S. Women’s Open.
Golf: Last weekend proved one of renewal in the winners’ circle on several circuits – and perhaps for Tiger Woods too. Meantime, Stephen Curry is set for a one-week venture between the ropes.
Golf: Steve Stricker and Stewart Cink are in the U.S. Open, but Phil Mickelson will probably opt out. Meantime, Lydia Ko keeps the No.1 women’s ranking one more week.
Golf: Though Bernhard Langer set an all-time record for senior major titles and Kevin Kisner rose above the pack at Colonial, those headlines got pushed aside by Tiger Woods’ latest saga.
Golf: The world’s top golfers go their separate ways after The Players Championship, with the PGA Tour heading to DFW and European Tour players readying for their flagship event.
