The Players Championship is changing this year to a three-hole aggregate playoff involving the closing stretch at the TPC Sawgrass.

Bubba lives in Tiger's old house.

Stan Cooke shot a 7-under 65 in windy conditions Tuesday to take the first-round lead in the Senior PGA Professional National Championship.

Clemson freshman golfer Ashlan Ramsey is turning pro after the school year.

The lack of drama on the back nine Sunday, compounded by the absence of Tiger Woods, led to low television ratings for the Masters.

Bubba Watson decided to keep his post-Masters victory more low key this year. Instead of going to New York for a media tour, he headed home to Orlando, Fla., and kept plans for a five-day vacation with his wife.

The moment doesn't get much bigger than this — a 20-foot putt on the 18th green Sunday at Augusta National for the win.

Karen Stupples habitually waved to the cheering gallery two weeks ago in the first round of the Kraft Nabisco Championship.

The Zurich Classic of New Orleans will feature a host of international players.

AUGUSTA, Ga. - Golf has reached a turning point. Like most turning points, this one offers the chance to reminisce or regret, to hope or worry.

Three lefties have combined to win six of the last 12 Masters titles and two of them have a lot in common.

McDowell returns to the field this week after missing the cut at The Masters. He will try to become the fourth player to successfully defend his title and first since Boo Weekley in 2007-08.

For all the crazy stunts Bubba Watson does for fun, the green jacket was off limits.

Bubba Watson collected his second green jacket in three years at The Masters on Sunday, and that vaulted him to No. 4 in this week's world golf rankings.

At about 5 p.m. Sunday, leaders Bubba Watson and Jordan Spieth stood on the ninth green.

Bubba Watson scooped up his son, hugged his wife and took off down the ropes along the 18th green, high-fiving the patrons at Augusta National.

AUGUSTA, Ga. - The winner didn't raise his fists to the sky, he dropped his head to his knees.

At just past 7:20 p.m., as twilight began to fall on the pristine Georgia hills, Jordan Spieth pushed through a doorway and stepped out onto a walkway that sits behind the first fairway of Augusta National Golf Club.

AUGUSTA, Ga. - Bubba Watson held a three-shot lead when he sliced his drive behind the trees protecting the left side of the 15th fairway at Augusta National. Play it safe, and he'd become the second player ever to win the Masters twice in his first six tries.

You win one Masters and you're Craig Stadler. Or maybe Ian Woosnam. And there's nothing wrong with that. Ask the guys who don't have a green jacket. Or a lifetime seat at the Champions Dinner.

AUGUSTA, Ga. - In 1963, Jack Nicklaus became the youngest Masters champion. Seventeen years later, Seve Ballesteros became the youngest. And seventeen years after that, Tiger Woods took the record lower. That was 17 years ago.

It was early Sunday afternoon, more than an hour before the Masters leaders teed off, and the white, hand-run scoreboard near the second hole began to a flash a "3".

In just his fifth major championship start, Jordan Spieth showed that he can keep up with the best in the world.

He plays a sexy game of golf, owns two green jackets and — in what constitutes a show of major respect in these parts —Bubba Watson made rabid Georgia Bulldog fans take a break from spring football to watch some golf this weekend.

AUGUSTA, Ga. - Jordan Spieth realizes that he probably didn't look like he was having fun Sunday at the Masters on the back nine as he fruitlessly tried to catch Bubba Watson.

Like John Travolta's character in "Saturday Night Fever," Jordan Spieth strutted down the Augusta National practice range, one confident stride after the next.

To hear Bubba Watson speak, he's someone from a small town in the Florida panhandle who has no business winning one green jacket at the Masters, let alone two in a three-year span.

Miguel Angel Jimenez, Bernhard Langer and Fred Couples made the Masters one for the ages — the older ages for sure.

A brief look at the final round of the Masters on Sunday:
