Jordan Spieth is from Texas and has a Claret Jug at home to squash any doubts that he can play in the wind. Still, The Forecaddie is not used to modern players proclaiming their love of playing in the wind or scheduling their season with wind in mind. With 15-25 mph winds forecast for his match against Patrick Reed on Friday at the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play, Spieth made clear he both loves wind and chooses to play where it will blow. “I have and will continue to schedule tournaments away from a dome because it’s just unusual for me,” Spieth said. “I like having the feel aspect. Places with no wind, where it’s just driving range shots, it’s just never been something I’ve been used to. So

Stop us if you’ve heard this one before: a Tony Romo performance turned ugly late. Romo, playing on a sponsor’s exemption in the Corales Puntacana Resort & Club Championship, was toddling along well through the first 12 holes of the day, carding an even-par round right up to that point. “I was nervous,” Romo conceded.

The Latest on the Dell Technologies Match Play (all times local): 6:28 p.m. Dustin Johnson, Rory McIlroy and Phil Mickelson lost in the opening round and now face a tough road to the weekend in the Dell Technologies Match Play. Bernd Wiesberger of Austria ended Johnson's seven-match winning streak and had plenty of help in a 3-and-1 victory. Former U.S. Amateur champion Peter Uihlein caught McIlroy a little flat and built too big of a lead for McIlroy to overcome. McIlroy birdied five in a row on the back nine at Austin Country Club until losing on the 17th hole. Mickelson, who won the last World Golf Championship in Mexico three weeks ago, made only one birdie in losing to Charles Howell III.

Brockton, Mass., and Augusta National are not synonymous, nor necessarily even compatible. Augusta National is urbane, refined, haughty. Brockton is hardy, its chin sturdy, a town capable of taking a punch, but also of throwing one.

John Senden is back inside the ropes for the first time in nearly a year at this week's Chitimacha Louisiana Open on the Tour. Senden took a leave of absence from professional golf in April, when his teenage son, Jacob, was diagnosed with a brain tumor. "I haven't really played in 12 months, but in that time Jacob has really, really hung tough," Senden said.

AUSTIN, Texas – The gentleman’s game is almost entirely devoid of anything even approaching trash talk or gamesmanship. What’s considered the norm in other sports is strictly taboo in golf - at least that’s the standard for 51 weeks out of the year. That anomaly, however, can be wildly entertaining. During Monday’s blind draw to determine this week’s 16 pods, Pat Perez was the first to suggest that this week’s WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play is the exception to the stoic rule on the PGA Tour. “Me and Branden [Grace] played a nine-hole match today and were chirping at each other the entire time,” Perez laughed. “Stuff like, ‘go in the trees.’ We were laughing about it, I didn’t get mad, I hit

Here is how things played out on Day 2 of the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play, as 64 players take on Austin Country Club with hopes of advancing out of pool play. Click here for Day 1 match results: Group 1: Adam Hadwin (38) def. Dustin Johnson (1), 4 and 3: After a dominating performance at last year’s Match Play, where he never trailed in any match, Johnson is already mathematically eliminated. He got routed on Thursday by Hadwin, after the Canadian built a 2-up lead at the turn and then poured it on with wins on the 11th and 13th holes. Group 1: Kevin Kisner (32) def. Bernd Wiesberger (52), 5 and 4: Kisner made three consecutive birdies midway through the front nine to set the tone, then

Na wasn't impressed, pointing out that the putt was actually 3 foot 4 inches and was worth $300,000. But it's not the first time Na has been cited for his pace of play, so sympathy was at a premium. However, some in the game say there is more to slow play than the self-absorption of millionaire golfers terrified of making mistakes. "There are times when it's unpalatable, horrible to watch," says Englishman Eddie Pepperell, who won his maiden European Tour title in Doha last month. "I saw a couple of clips of Kevin Na, and that wasn't cool. And what JB Holmes did was disrespectful. But the reality is, an acceptable amount of time for a three-ball depends on the toughness and length of the course."

Jordan Spieth and Patrick Reed enjoy few things more than trying to beat each other, and that's when they are partners. The stakes are even higher in the Dell Technologies Match Play. Win or go home. Spieth and Reed did their part Thursday by winning their matches for a second straight day to set up a showdown on the skirts of Hill Country in Texas. They play Friday to determine who wins the group and advances to the weekend of this World Golf Championship. Reed fired the first shot when asked what made Spieth a good opponent in match play. "I don't know. My back still hurts from the last Ryder Cup," he said with a laugh, alluding to the way he carried Spieth in their partnership at Hazeltine
