Knox confident heading into key stretch

(AP) -- Russell Knox needed results before he could find confidence, and now his confidence is soaring.

Just over six months ago, Knox got in as an alternate for his first World Golf Championship, scrambled to secure a Chinese visa and wound up winning the HSBC Champions in Shanghai. He has become more visible since then, only partly because of his steady play. Read More...

Trump wants wall to protect Irish course

WASHINGTON (AP) Donald Trump wants to build another huge wall, this time to keep out the rising seas threatening to swamp his luxury golf resort in Ireland.

The Republican presidential candidate has called climate change a "con job" and a "hoax." But in an application filed this month in County Clare, Ireland, the Trump International Golf Links and Hotel cites the threat of global warming in seeking a permit to build a nearly two-mile-long stone wall between it and the Atlantic Ocean. The beach in front of the 18th green is disappearing at a rate of about a yard each year. Read More...

McIlroy eagles 18, wins 1st Irish Open

STRAFFAN, Ireland (AP) Rory McIlroy eagled the final hole to cap his first victory of the season Sunday at the Irish Open, his home tournament where he's famously struggled over the years.

McIlroy's three-shot triumph over Scotland's Russell Knox and Bradley Dredge of Wales wasn't smooth sailing. But the Northern Ireland native prevailed with a 3-under 69, thanks to superior driving power that allowed him to birdie the K Club's first three par-5 holes - then demolish the competition with his final powerful approach shot. Read More...

Donaldson narrowly qualifies for US Open

FAR HILLS, N.J. (AP) Jamie Donaldson's birdie-birdie finish to tie for 10th in the Irish Open moved him to No. 60 in the world and spared him from qualifying for the U.S. Open.

The U.S. Open field for Oakmont on June 16-19 now is half-filled after 27 players earned exemptions from being in the top 60 this week. Sergio Garcia, at No. 12 after winning the AT&T Byron Nelson, was among the 27 players in the top 60 of this week's world ranking who weren't already eligible. Read More...

Jutanugarn posts second straight victory

WILLIAMSBURG, Va. (AP) Ariya Jutanugarn quickly has made winning a habit on the LPGA Tour.

The 20-year-old shot a nearly mistake-free 4-under 67 on Sunday and won the Kingsmill Championship by one shot for her second consecutive victory. The bad news for the rest of the tour is that she said this one was much easier to finish off than her first two weeks ago. Read More...
