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.

The realization didn't hit Bill Haas until after he clambered onto the balcony next to East Lake's 18th green late Sunday. Two trophies flanked PGA Tour Commissioner Tim Finchem for the closing presentation. One was for the Tour Championship, which Haas had just won in a three-hole playoff with Hunter Mahan. The other was the FedEx Cup. No one else seemed to be joining them on stage. "I didn't know I had won this," Haas told the commish, nodding toward the FedEx Cup. "Congratulations, you won both," Finchem said.

Jason Bohn, Jeff Overton and Blake Adams shot 7-under 63s Thursday to share the first-round lead at the Colonial in Fort Worth, Texas, where 2008 champ Phil Mickelson struggled after an impressive start. Mickelson birdied the first two holes, but that was the lowest he got on a hot day with ideal scoring conditions. He finished with a 1-over 71 and is tied for 89th after 75 players broke par. It would take quite a comeback for Mickelson to win his third Colonial, a victory that would push him to No. 1 in the world ranking ahead of Tiger Woods for the first time.

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.

OAKMONT, PA. -- You expect the Green Bay Packers to win at Lambeau Field in December. You figure the bulls will fare OK on the streets of Pamplona. And you'd bet the mortgage that Takeru Kobayashi will eat the most hot dogs at a Tokyo Wienerschnitzel. In competition, home-field advantage is supposed to mean something. So how then do we reason that the U.S. Open is about to tee off at Oakmont Country Club and the American golfers have rarely looked so vulnerable on their home turf? Lately, it's like they've been running a red carpet for their out-of-country guests from the first tee box Thursday to the 18th green Sunday.

Gay outdistances Heritage field by 10 golf Brian Gay shot a 7-under-par 64 to win at the Verizon Heritage on Sunday in Hilton Head Island, S.C., prevailing by an astounding 10 shots. He broke the 13-year-old scoring record, finishing at 20-under 264 on the way to his second PGA Tour victory. "Just another unbelievable day," Gay said. He had the tour's largest margin of victory since Phil Mickelson won the 2006 BellSouth Classic by 13 strokes. Gay bested Loren Roberts' mark of 19-under in winning the 1996 Verizon Heritage.

STRAFFAN, Ireland -- As far as Ryder Cup celebrations go, the one the European team staged yesterday at The K Club was hardly a model of restraint. Not that it mattered, of course. Sergio Garcia flipped his visor backward and emptied an entire bottle of champagne over his head. Henrik Stenson donned a fluffy green and white wig. His shirt soaked with champagne, Padraig Harrington draped himself in an Irish flag and waved it to the crowd. Paul Casey and Robert Karlsson clinked their magnums of champagne together and showered each other with the stuff.

Westwood vs. Donald Bill Dwyre Los Angeles Times This 140th edition of The Open Championship, also known on the United States side of the pond as the British Open, will come down to a country-wrenching battle for the title between Lee Westwood and Luke Donald. The English will be torn. Their tabloids will wring their hands in indecision that will manifest itself in big, black wobbly headlines. Whom to root for? Which one is truly our lad? They are both Englishmen, of course, but which is more English than the other?

Charley Hoffman fired a 9-under 62 Monday to roll to a five-stroke victory at the Deutsche Bank Championship, the second of four FedEx Cup playoff events. Hoffman missed the course record at the TPC Boston in Norton, Mass., by a stroke but matched the event's scoring record of 22-under 262. "I actually didn't know how many birdies I had today," said Hoffman, who earned $1.35 million for his second PGA Tour victory. "The ball just kept going in the hole, and the few bad shots I hit, I got away with.
