10:11 a.m., Sunday: The debate raged Saturday night on Twitter, peaking when Gary Woodland made two absolutely ridiculous par saves on the 12th and 14th holes to stay atop the leader board: Was this man living a charmed life and strolling along the path of destiny, or were we witnessing the exact opposite? If he fell, it would open up some incredible storylines, from Brooks Koepka going five for his last nine in majors and treating his fellow professionals and the sport itself roughly like General Sherman treated the south during the Civil War, or Justin Rose capturing a much-deserved second major, or Rory McIlroy finally ending his five-year major drought. 6:13 p.m.: Well, folks, it was...

This led me to add a corollary to my offer: If the player leaves my camp, for any reason whatsoever, and doesn't leave a token bit of compensation in place, said player cannot come back. This happened several years ago with a very good player I was helping.

Simpson, to Patrick Reed snapping a wedge over his knee during the second round of this year's U.S. Open. Which explains why each day this week at Pebble Beach Golf Links, David Cannon arrives on the property by 5:30 a.m. (a couple of hours later on the weekend) to formulate his plan for how to cover the U.S. Open. Remember the shot of Jack Nicklaus raising his putter on the 17th hole during the final round of the 1986 Masters?

PEBBLE BEACH-Henrik Stenson is known as the "Iceman" for his steely demeanor. During the U.S. Open's third round, Stenson's approach at the 16th veered right into the crowd, a shot Stenson acknowledged as a "semi-shank" and "rocket." Unfortunately, because he was hidden by trees, the gallery didn't see his ball coming and it hit a fan in the forehead, knocking him out and to the ground. "Luckily, I mean, you can get hit worse places," Stenson explained after his round.
