SYDNEY (AP) — Defending champion Jordan Spieth failed to take advantage of ideal scoring conditions at the Australian Open on Friday, shooting an even-par 71 to fall further behind the leaders. After an opening 70, he was at 1-under 141 and eight strokes behind clubhouse leader Lucas Herbert, who shot 66 on Friday and was at 9-under 133. Spieth trailed by seven strokes after the opening round. First-round leader Cameron Davis, who led by two strokes after a 63, had an afternoon start, as did Jason Day, who trailed Davis by three shots. Spieth, who hasn't played since the Presidents Cup in late September, has won the Australian Open two out of the last three years and finished second the other

PA Sport England's Matt Fitzpatrick believes he is right on track to erase his Dubai disappointment after an opening 66 in the Hong Kong Open. Fitzpatrick, 23, led by a shot at halfway in the defence of his DP World Tour Championship title last week, but struggled to a third round of 72 and eventually finished 12th. That was still his seventh straight top-15 finish since he won the Omega European Masters and a round containing six birdies and two bogeys at Fanling left him a shot behind leader SSP Chawrasia. "It's a good start to the week," Fitzpatrick told "It's not an easy course and listening to Justin Rose talking after the pro-am, he said four rounds of four under would

Tommy Fleetwood has expressed his delight that his newly won European Tour title will "be on my CV forever" -- but has already set his sights on defending his crown next year. The long-haired Merseysider only sealed the tour's coveted Race to Dubai title last week, but he is straight back into action at the Hong Kong Open, which opens the new European Tour season. It is a tournament he came within two strokes of winning last year, setting in motion a remarkable run that saw him gatecrash the world top 20 and ultimately pip Justin Rose to seal the order of merit title last week in Dubai.

After another 10-month spell away and a fourth back operation in three years, Tiger Woods is “pain free” and could be back playing competitively as early as next week. Woods, who has not played competitive golf for 10 months as he recovers from a fourth operation on his back in three years, will be making his comeback next week at his own tournament in Albany, Bahamas.

Paul Casey will represent Europe for the first time since 2008 after being selected as a wild card for EurAsia Cup. Casey recently announced he would be rejoining the European Tour for the 2018 season, making him available to play in future Ryder Cups for Europe. Thomas Bjorn, who will captain the European team for the Ryder Cup in Paris next year, will also lead Europe at the EurAsia Cup in Malaysia. He said picking Casey was a "no-brainer." "He is a wonderful player with a lot of experience and I think the young guys can learn a lot from him," Bjorn said of the No. 14-ranked Casey. "He's also got a fantastic match-play record and not just in Ryder Cups. He is comfortable with where he is in

(CNN)It's hard to imagine any of today's top professional golfers hunkered in a workshop making their own golf clubs. Rewind a couple of decades though and that's exactly what former world no.1 Greg Norman used to do, before he headed out to compete on the PGA Tour. "I used to hand make all my equipment, assemble my shafts, weigh up my grips, get the spine angles of my shafts exactly the same for every iron shot so you get absolute consistency with performance of your shaft," the 62-year-old Norman told CNN Sport over the phone earlier this month from his office in West Palm Beach, Florida. With that in mind, you can perhaps understand why Norman was baffled by the recent revelation that US Ryder Cup star Patrick Reed had failed to notice he'd been playing with the wrong club set-up.

Apologies to the LPGA’s golden eras, but women’s golf has never been deeper. With the game going global, with the unrelenting wave of Asian talent continuing to slam the tour’s shores, with Thailand and China promising to add to what South Korea is delivering, it’s more difficult than ever to win. That’s a beautiful and perplexing thing for the women’s game. That’s because it is more difficult than ever to dominate. And that’s a magic word in golf. There is no more powerful elixir in the sport. Domination gets you on the cover of Sports Illustrated, on ESPN SportsCenter, maybe even on NBC Nightly News if the “D” in domination is dynamic enough. The women’s best chance of moving their sport to

He has also worked as a television commentator calling Australian Rules Football, Athletics and Tennis for a number of networks. SYDNEY, Australia -- The sunshine warmed everything it touched on Friday, except Jordan Spieth's putter. His magic wand was as cold as ice in the second round of the Australian Open. In glorious conditions with no wind to speak of he struck the ball well from tee to green but had 33 putts in an even par 71 to leave himself a long way off the pace in his title defence at one-under. "It just was a bad
