Henrik Stenson, Jon Rahm tied for lead in the Bahamas

Jon Rahm hardly missed a shot and found golf easy Friday on his way to a 9-under 63, giving him a share of the lead with Henrik Stenson going into the weekend at the Hero World Challenge. Tiger Woods stayed eight shots behind, and an 18-month-old rules decision kept him from being a further stroke back.

Henrik Stenson bounces back, shoots 64 at Bay Hill

Henrik Stenson had a hot putter, a much quieter crowd and a one-shot lead in the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

Rickie Fowler’s steady play produces Deutsche Bank championship

Johnson, Stenson shoot 65s for first-round lead at U.S. Open

UNIVERSITY PLACE, Wash. – As Dustin Johnson was being shuffled from TV interviews to radio interviews to print media interviews, he asked an official: “Is this the last one?” Nope, he was told, one more to go. A similar thought probably crossed Johnson’s mind 30 minutes earlier as he was finishing his opening round at the U.S. Open. He was 6-under par and making a run at the major championship scoring record (63) but he settled for par after smashing his drive on his 17th hole, the par-5 8th.
