Rose Wins U.S. Open For First Major Title

Justin Rose is the winner of the 2013 U.S. Open. Rose carded a final-round, even-par 70 to finish at one-over par on the East Course at Merion Golf Club and claim his first major title. Third-round leader Phil Mickelson shot four-over on the final day to finish two shots back in a tie for second with Jason Day at plus-three. "Lefty" was seeking his first U.S. Open title on his 43rd birthday, but settled instead for his record sixth runner-up finish. Tiger Woods shot a four-over 74 on the final day to finish tied for 32nd at 13-over par. It was his highest score ever at a major as a professional.

OFF THE CUFF with Diane Jones

If you want to get someone's attention, whisper. That old investment brokerage ad is the opposite of what is going on regarding shootings in Ferguson and Tower Grove. When people threaten violence or blankly label one as a racist, it's very hard to listen. The same holds true for those who sum up the plight of impoverished black communities as "that's how those people are."
