DORAL, Fla. (AP) Padraig Harrington's game slipped so badly last year that he failed to keep full status on the PGA Tour for the first time. He wrote letters to tournaments asking for a sponsor's exemption and received one from every tournament but the CIMB Classic in Malaysia.

Some of the tournaments responded within an hour of his request. It was easy to see why, and not just because he's a three-time major champion.

McIlroy misses cut in American return

PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. (AP) - As far as star power goes, the PGA Tour is like a fireworks show in the rain.

The Phoenix Open was more high-charged than ever this year with the Super Bowl in town and Tiger Woods back to golf. Except that Woods was on his way home after two days and a career-high 82 to miss the cut by 12 shots. A week later, Woods was gone after 11 holes and glutes that wouldn't activate. Read More...
