PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. (AP) Tiger Woods had what he called "easily" his best round hitting the ball, and he didn't even break par at the Honda Classic.

PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. (AP) Retief Goosen one-putted the last six holes to win his second U.S. Open title at Shinnecock Hills in 2004. He has not been back to the storied club on Long Island since that day, and he probably won't go back unless he qualifies.
