Dustin Johnson leads the top five players in the world who have committed to play the CJ Cup at Shadow Creek in Las Vegas, the start of a two-week stretch of relocated Asia events that includes Tiger Woods returning to California.

The CJ Cup typically is held in South Korea, followed by the Zozo Championship in Japan. Both events were moved to the western U.S. because of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the fields were expected to be stacked with the Masters just two weeks after those events.

The CJ Cup is Oct. 15-18, with the Zozo Championship at Sherwood a week later.

It looked as though it might get him into a playoff. Read More...

DeChambeau wins US Open for first major

MAMARONECK, N.Y. (AP) What was supposed to be a typical U.S. Open produced a most unconventional champion.

Bryson DeChambeau was not the least bit concerned by the narrow fairways or the ankle-deep rough that shape Winged Foot into historically the toughest of all U.S. Opens.
