Louis Oosthuizen Barry Stavro Los Angeles Times My Ouija board says the PGA champ will emerge from the group of 16 players who have won the last 16 majors and, no, Tiger Woods isn't in that mix. Sunday's winner will be … South Africa's Louis Oosthuizen. Granted, he's one of the more obscure names among the recent 16 major winners. But he's having a fine year. He came within a ball turn of sinking the winning putt at Augusta before Bubba Watson came out of the trees in a playoff to beat him for a green jacket, and Oosthuizen has continued to play well; he was in the mix last week at Firestone.

According to coach Ed Hottle, Stevenson's best start in school history has been a long time coming. It's also a product of inspired play by the defense. Through four games, no opponent has scored more than 19 points in a single game against the Mustangs, who are tied for 12th in Division III in points allowed (9.8), rank 18th in yards surrendered (247.8), are tied for fourth in interceptions (nine) and eighth in takeaways (12). So how does a defense that in 2013 allowed 24.2 points and 370.2 yards per game and collected 11 interceptions among their 17 takeaways improve so dramatically?

SHEBOYGAN, Wis. — Tiger Woods might be far enough behind leader Nick Watney that he couldn't see him through a Sheboygan fog, but there's incentive for Woods to put up a good score Sunday. He can improve his Ryder Cup position, though he'll likely need some of his fellow players to stumble. Woods is currently 10th in the U.S. standings, with the top eight guaranteed a spot on the team. As erratic as his play was Saturday, Woods was encouraged. "The striking, the sound, the feel, more than anything, it feels good," said Woods, who is tied for 31st in the PGA Championship at 3 under.

How some of our columnists and editors feel about the two-stroke penalty given to Tiger Woods at the Masters Saturday: Peter Schmuck, columnist: By most accounts, the ruling was correct and penalty appropriate, which is a sign that professional golf has evolved from the time when a player could have days of honorable competition wiped out by some subtle violation he wasn't even aware he committed. I'm still disgusted over the silly ruling that knocked Dustin Johnson out of the PGA Championship in 2010.

The Tour Championship When: Thursday-Sunday, East Lake Golf Club, Atlanta. Course: 7,319 yards, par 70. Format: 72 holes, stroke play. No cut. Field is limited to final 30 players in FedEx Cup points race. Purse: $8.5 million ($1.4 million to winner). 2010 champion: Jim Furyk (8-under-par 272, one shot ahead of Luke Donald). Furyk is not at East Lake, standing 36th on the points list after last week's BMW Championship. FedEx Cup: Points are reset this week to give everyone a mathematical chance of winning the FedEx Cup. A win by any of the top five — Webb Simpson, Dustin Johnson, Justin Rose, Luke Donald or Matt Kuchar — would lock up the title without outside help.

PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. — Before Phil Mickelson went on a late afternoon birdie binge Friday, the most interesting name on the U.S. Open leaderboard was the generic "Johnson." Dustin Johnson has the power to obliterate par-5s, the experience to navigate Pebble Beach's slopey, fickle greens and a caddie who sounds as if he should have sunscreen on his nose and a surfboard in his arm. "Dude," caddie Bobby Brown said, "we have a vibe going." Johnson already has won twice here, triumphing at the last two AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Ams.

SHEBOYGAN, Wis. — With the PGA Championship over, the U.S. Ryder Cup roster got its first eight members Sunday. Both Anthony Kim and Lucas Glover fell out of the top eight in the point standings, with Bubba Watson and Dustin Johnson replacing them thanks to their strong finishes Sunday. Tiger Woods is 12th in the standings and will have to be one of Corey Pavin's four captain's picks to join the team. The rest of the team: Phil Mickelson, Hunter Mahan, Jim Furyk, Steve Stricker, Jeff Overton and Matt Kuchar . Overall, it's a young team, Mickelson said.

SHEBOYGAN, Wis. — Remember Dustin Johnson? In the final round of the U.S. Open, he lost a three-shot lead in one horrific hour. To hear him tell it, that's about all the time he needed to get past that Sunday 82 at Pebble Beach. Asked when he recovered, Johnson replied: "Probably the next day. You know, it was kind of a fluke thing. Golfers have bad rounds, so I didn't dwell on it at all. " Johnson missed the cut in his next event, the AT&T National, but rebounded at the British Open (tie for 14th)

Twenty-two birdies. That's all Ken Green wants out of his teammate this week. "I don't think I've made 22 birdies in my last four tournaments combined," Mark Calcavecchia said Wednesday. "We'll have fun either way. " Green and Calcavecchia are paired at this week's Legends of Golf, a partnership they sometimes discussed in the days before they hit the Champions Tour — "when I was actually normal," Green said. That was before Green lost his lower right leg in a fiery 2009 RV accident.

ATLANTA — Tiger Woods didn't qualify for the Tour Championship, his second consecutive miss. Nor is Jim Furyk around to defend his title. They account for three of the four FedEx Cup crowns awarded since the PGA Tour's "playoff" series was introduced. Vijay Singh did make the 30-man lineup but needs serious help to take home the $10 million FedEx top prize. Ditto for Phil Mickelson. Suffice it to say the FedEx Cup will have a fresh champion when the final putt drops Sunday at East Lake Golf Club.

Nearly a year later, the sequence remains something of a blur for Dustin Johnson. Three strokes ahead of his U.S. Open pursuers to start the final day at Pebble Beach, Johnson opened with a par. He piped his drive at No. 2 long and down the middle. And then … Before the lanky South Carolinian could fully process the situation, he had a triple bogey. "With a wedge in my hand," Johnson lamented recently. "It's a funny game. " Though not always fun and games, especially in a major championship.

According to one report out of Ireland, Rory McIlroy sacked out for 11 hours of his flight home from Malaysia. Little wonder. In the 61/2 days since losing his grip on a Masters green jacket, the 21-year-old pro had logged 10,000 miles just to get to Kuala Lumpur, endured a brush with lost clubs, shared the 36-hole lead and wound up third. Yet in his inability to stave off Matteo Manassero, it didn't take long for some to question whether his Augusta National jackknife had scarred McIlroy.

It wasn't all that long ago that the PGA Tour's annual arrival at TPC Sawgrass would reignite discussion as to whether The Players Championship deserves major status. That debate has pretty much died off now. And in at least one pro's mind, golf's richest event may not even hold honorary "fifth major" acclaim. England's Lee Westwood raised eyebrows at last week's Quail Hollow Championship when he suggested the maturation of the World Golf Championships series may have nudged The Players aside.

All that Welsh mud has dried by now, offering something of a bookend finish to the PGA Tour's high season. Mud — or more aptly, slime — also ruled headlines, you'll recall, as 2010 set forth. Come to think of it, there wasn't much tidiness in between, either. Tiger Woods didn't win a tournament. Phil Mickelson won one. So did a Monday qualifier (Arjun Atwal, Greensboro). Nobody won more than three. Two players shot 59. A rules violation decided a playoff. Another denied someone a playoff — for a major.

It's not the question one wants to hear hours before boarding a trans-Atlantic charter for one of golf's biggest weeks. Are you gassed? Matt Kuchar paused a beat but made no attempt to dodge. "I could use a couple of down days," the FedEx Cup runner-up admitted Sunday. "But I don't get a couple of down days for a couple weeks. I've understood that. " Ryder Cup vs. FedEx Cup. It's a delicate balance. Four years ago, one of the prime reasons offered for the United States' back-to-back Ryder Cup wipeouts was that the PGA Tour's best couldn't get back to high gear after essentially shutting it down after the PGA Championship.
