Who needs more time to practice? Jordan Spieth, who will likely be the new No. 1 player in the world within the next two weeks, is locked in and on top of his game at this week's John Deere Classic. #Spieth   #PGATour   #Golf
Jordan Spieth may be a week away from the third leg of the Grand Slam, but right now he's dialed in and crushing the competition at the John Deere Classic.

Talk about bad timing - Rory McIlroy suffered a freak soccer injury over the weekend, and now his hopes of even playing at The Open, much less hoisting the Claret Jug for the second straight year, have taken a huge hit. ‪#‎OpenChampionship‬ ‪#‎RoryMcIlroy‬ ‪#‎Golf‬
World No. 1 Rory McIlroy suffered a freak ankle injury over the weekend, which will likely cost him a shot at the Open Championship at St. Andrews.

Rory McIlroy's homecoming isn't going quite the way he had planned. With the U.S. Open just three weeks away, can he get anything going at Royal County Down and salvage some positives from the Irish Open? #RoryMcIlroy   #Golf   #IrishOpen   #EuropeanTour   #PGATour  
Rory McIlroy was hoping for a hometown boost at this week's Irish Open, but as it stands, he'll struggle just to avoid a second straight missed cut heading into the U.S. Open.

Day 3 of the 2015 #Masters  Tournament is under way, and while Jordan Spieth still holds a dominating lead, some all-too-familiar names are shooting up the leaderboard behind him, ready to take advantage of any small opening. #JordanSpieth   #TigerWoods   #RoryMcIlroy   #PhilMickelson
Augusta National is still Jordan Spieth's world for now, but some familiar names are making sure that he doesn't just get to fall asleep with this lead.

Rory McIlroy's game has been under intense scrutiny these past few weeks, but with the #Masters  looming, he's making the right call to shut it down and make his final preparations in private. #RoryMcIlroy   #PGATour   #Golf   #AugustaNational  
Rory McIlroy has been working to find his game ahead of the Masters, but with just two weeks before Augusta National, some time off might be just what he needs to go for his first green jacket.

Tiger Woods is in the middle of a career crisis - hurt, rebuilding his swing, and playing so badly that he doesn't feel he even belongs on the PGA Tour right now. That realization, however, might be the only thing that lets him ever win again. #TigerWoods   #Golf   #PGATour
Tiger Woods has been hurt and playing badly, but his admission that he can't just force his way through it - as he might have before - may be the best chance he has to ever win again on Tour.

no one can perform at the pga level if they're not healthy. so many haters were desperately waiting for Tiger to fall. He didn't let them down by his sexual bliss. everyone makes mistakes. he has more than paid for those he made. it's now time to stop trying to please everyone of most who have no bearing on his life. and just PLAY.

Jordan Spieth is staring down history heading into next week's Open Championship, but he's staying stateside to play in this week's John Deere Classic. Despite missing practice time at the Old Course, here's why that's absolutely the right decision. #JordanSpieth   #OpenChampionship   #PGATour   #Golf   #JohnDeereClassic  
With the Grand Slam suddenly a very real possibility, should Jordan Spieth be skipping valuable practice time at St. Andrews to play in this week's John Deere Classic?

Dustin Johnson and Henrik Stenson are living up to the expectation for big hitters at Chambers Bay. Tiger Woods? Not so much. #USOpen   #Golf   #ChambersBay   #USGA   #DustinJohnson   #TigerWoods
The 2015 US Open is underway at Chambers Bay. Big hitters Dustin Johnson and Henrik Stenson took advantage to share the early lead while Tiger Woods struggles to get his game back.

Jordan Spieth is already a superstar in he game of golf, but he could be set to become a household name if he keeps up his historic dominance at the #Masters . Can anybody catch the red-hot 21-year-old? #AugustaNational   #Golf   #PGATour   #JordanSpieth  
The second round of the Masters is underway at Augusta National, and Jordan Spieth is once again the story of the day, extending his already dominant lead as the weekend looms.

Jordan Spieth hasn't slowed down since bursting onto the #PGATour  scene in 2013. He might have left Augusta National disappointed last year, but after winning the Valspar Championship in a playoff, he's set to be a #Masters  favorite again in 2015. #Golf   #JordanSpieth   #ValsparChampionship   #FedExCup
Jordan Spieth felt a huge disappointment at last year's Masters, but he's been building to a return all year, peaking with his impressive playoff win at the Valspar Championship.

Between Tiger's back problems and his inability to adapt to the new swing with Chris Como, could his hopes of a 2015 comeback be in jeopardy already? #FarmersInsOpen   #PGATour   #TigerWoods   #Golf  
Tiger Woods was battling his swing all day at the Farmers Insurance Open, but a sore back has forced him to withdraw once again as his disappointing comeback continues.
