    No question about it, golf should stay in the Olympics

    With one tweet, Jordan Spieth said what we all suspected. He congratulated medal winners Justin Rose, Henrik Stenson and Matt Kuchar, adding it “will be a goal to represent [the U.S.] in 2020.” In other words, and we’re reading between the characters here: I messed up.

    Golf’s return to the Olympics after 112 years produced a thrilling Sunday — two major champions dueling in the afternoon sun and a cheery American firing an eight-under-par 63 to win bronze.

    Beach volleyball is a sport perfectly suited for Brazil

    Outside the beach volleyball venue Saturday, Brazilians and tourists danced on the boardwalk, munched on grilled shrimp, scanned racks of cheap jewelry and played futevolei — soccer on a volleyball court. If you want to feel alive, you come to Copacabana Beach on a glistening, 85-degree day. And...

    U.S. Open notes: Jason Day comeback falls short

    Jason Day, the world’s top-ranked player, shot a 76 in the first round of the U.S. Open, and three grueling days later, he still believed he had a chance to win with two holes left to play Sunday.
