Oakmont win might be greatest accomplishment, says McIlroy
Yahoo News - 9 months
By Mark Lamport-Stokes OAKMONT, Pennsylvania (Reuters) - Rory McIlroy has already won four major titles but says that a victory at this week's U.S. Open being played at treacherous Oakmont Country Club could rank as his greatest ever accomplishment. All four of McIlroy's previous wins in golf's blue riband events have been achieved on soft layouts where the scoring has been low, very different from Oakmont where the last U.S. Open champion here, Angel Cabrera in 2007, finished at five-over par. "To be able to win on a course like this with the conditions the way they are, it would probably be my biggest accomplishment in the game ... would make me feel like a more complete player." McIlroy announced himself as a potential golfing great with a stunning eight-shot win to claim his first major title in the 2011 U.S. Open at Congressional, becoming the championship's youngest winner since 1923.

Day, Spieth and McIlroy set for US Open showdown
Yahoo News - 9 months
World number one Jason Day will lead golf's young stars in seeking to join a who's who of champions produced by Oakmont when the rugged course in Pittsburgh hosts the 2016 US Open next week. Johnny Miller delivered a sublime 63 to win the 1973 US Open there, where South African Ernie Els captured the first of his four major titles in a US Open playoff in 1994. Reigning US Open champion Jordan Spieth, recalling Argentinian Angel Cabrera's "ball-striking clinic" en route to the title in 2007 -- the last time Oakmont hosted the championship, said the course was not one to be trifled with.

Golf: Argentine Grillo wins Frys.com Open in playoff
Yahoo News - over 1 year
(Reuters) - Argentine Emiliano Grillo made a perfect start to his career as a PGA Tour member when he beat American Kevin Na in a playoff at the Frys.com Open in northern California on Sunday. After missing a three-footer that would have won it at the first extra hole, Grillo made amends at the next, the par-five 18th, with an eight-foot birdie to edge Na at the Silverado Resort in Napa. A day after almost hitting Rory McIlroy with his drive at the reachable par-four 17th, Grillo became the sixth Argentine player to win on the American circuit, joining Roberto de Vicenzo, Jose Coceres, Angel Cabrera, Andres Romero and Fabian Gomez.

With high fives and a squirrel prank Tiger enjoys opening win
Yahoo News - over 3 years
By Simon Evans DUBLIN, Ohio (Reuters) - As much as players and officials like to talk up the competitive nature of the Presidents Cup there was also an end-of-season party atmosphere at Muirfield Village on Thursday with even Tiger Woods joining in the fun. Woods and Matt Kuchar enjoyed a comfortable 5&4 win over Argentine Angel Cabrera and Australian Marc Leishman and the world number one had an unusually relaxed day. With eight birdies between them and winning six holes to one, the American pair never looked in danger and there was even time for some fun and games. ...

U.S. retains early control at Presidents Cup
Chicago Times - over 3 years
DUBLIN, Ohio (Reuters) - The United States remained in overall control midway through Thursday's opening fourballs at the Presidents Cup following a suspension in play for just under an hour-and-a-half because of a thunderstorm. Seeking to win the trophy for an eighth time in 10 editions of the biennial team competition, the Americans led in five of the six matches and trailed in one at Muirfield Village Golf Club. Hunter Mahan and Brandt Snedeker spectacularly set the tone in the first match out, making five birdies in the first five holes and were one up on Australian Jason Day and Canada's Graham DeLaet with four holes to play. Bill Haas and Webb Simpson were two up on Masters champion Adam Scott of Australia and Japan's Hideki Matsuyama after 14 holes in a contest of high quality while Steve Stricker and rookie Jordan Spieth were two up on South African Ernie Els and Zimbabwe's Brendon de Jonge after 12 holes. Tiger Woods and Matt Kuchar were three up on Argentina's Angel Cabrera an ...

Flailing Thunderbird Business School Was Asking For Trouble With These Exorbitant Professor Salaries
Business Insider - over 3 years
There's a big controversy at the Thunderbird School of Global Management, the business school regularly ranked as the best place to get an international business education. The struggling school, which had a $4 million deficit in fiscal 2013, has agreed to a partnership deal with a for-profit education provider called Laureate Education Inc. Many alums are enraged. At least two board members have resigned in protest. They believe the link up with for-profit Laureate will tarnish the school's brand. But some of them should be paying a little more attention to how much some of the school's faculty are making. The highest paid professor at the Thunderbird School of Global Management makes more than the dean of the Harvard Business School. Or his boss. Or, for that matter, President Obama. Yet, he is little known outside his Glendale, Arizona-based school, not widely quoted in the media, nor broadly recognized as an expert in his field. He doesn’t even make the list of the top 50 bu ...
