Dustin Johnson won the Sentry Tournament of Champions by eight shots in his last start, but he knows that doesn't mean much this week.

With a convincing win at the 2016 Ryder Cup and an even more lopsided victory at the 2017 Presidents Cup, there's a growing sentiment that the U.S. has re-figured out this whole team golf thing. Not so fast, says Rory McIlroy.

Charlie Reiter is skipping classes at Palm Desert High to play in the CareerBuilder Challenge. He's still getting schooled, too, by the likes of Jon Rahm. The 18-year-old Reiter, the first amateur to receive a sponsor exemption in tournament history, recently hooked up with Rahm at nearby Big Horn. "It was definitely eye-opening," Reiter said. "We played like 12 holes together and I think he had, maybe, a one-putt almost every single hole. He made like six straight birdies. It just showed me how good you have to be in certain areas of your game to be on the tour and be a top-level golfer." Rahm, at No. 3 in the world, is the top-ranked player in the event that starts Thursday. He chuckled recalling

The world’s top tours head to desert regions this week, perfect locales for The Hot Seat, the gauge upon which we measure the level of heat the game’s top personalities are facing ... Sahara sizzle: Rory McIlroy McIlroy won’t have to look far to see how his form measures up to world No. 1 Dustin Johnson at the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship. McIlroy will make his 2018 debut with Johnson in his face, literally. McIlroy will be grouped with Johnson and Tommy Fleetwood in the first two rounds. Players like to downplay pairings early in a tournament, but it’s hard to believe McIlroy and Johnson won’t be trying to send each other messages in this European Tour event in the United Arab Emirates. That’s

On Monday, tensions were noticeably high in the NBA, and on Martin Luther King Day no less. In Oklahoma City, Russell Westbrook was ejected after being hit with two technicals, prompting Carmelo Anthony to say he's "done" with referees. In Philly, Sixers guard Ben Simmons and Raptors guard Kyle Lowry were ejected after a mini-dustup that reportedly bled over into the tunnel.

It has been four years since he was a European Tour member and, indeed, since he played in any of his home circuit’s regular events. The Ryder Cup was the principal lure in persuading him to rejoin, of course, but there were also the memories of the seasons that helped him climb to world No3. “It really was,” Casey said.

Paul Barrington is a former World Trick Shot Champion in golf. Tom Bushell is our CNN talent. Can he compete with the trick shot master?

Billionaire Charles Cohen built 39 acres of golf greens and holes in his own backyard with the help of golf course architect Michael Lehrer. The yard features 10 pins, 70 target combinations, 3 sand traps, tee markers, ball washer, one green that covers 11,000 square feet of artificial turf, man-made waterfalls, and 7 tee boxes. Lehrer uses 180 tons of crushed rock to shape the green then 10 tons of stone dust to smooth the surface. All told, the course cost Cohen between $100,000 - $200,000.

The rule for the record attempt, according to Guinness World Records, is that the hole must be at least 500 yards long. The clock begins the moment the ball is first struck and stops when it drops into the hole. The golfer can ride in a cart, but must finish the hole with as many clubs as they started with. Jeffs chose to sprint between shots instead of riding, but on the day of the record attempt he almost ran out of puff. "I only had three attempts," he explains. "My first two failed because I went out a bit too hard." The nine handicapper had just enough in the tank for one final attempt, taking three shots to get onto the green before stopping the clock with the simplest of tap-ins after

If Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal can still win majors, why can’t Tiger Woods or Phil Mickelson? Practically ancient in the world of tennis, legends Federer and Nadal reasserted themselves in 2017. And that’s a sport where no one is supposed to win majors in their thirties. With both Woods and Mickelson seemingly healthy, 2018 will tell us if modern science, coupled with status and experience, will present us with fortysomethings battling twentysomethings for major glory. Golf has typically honored late-career runs by those of a certain vintage, but not since Hale Irwin at Medinah in 1990 have we seen a genuinely resurgent late-career win. That suggests the golf gods have decreed this is a young
