PITTSFORD, New York (AP) — Fox Sports is in as the next broadcast partner for the U.S. Open starting in 2015. Johnny Miller appears to be out.
In a surprising announcement, the U.S. Golf Association said it has signed a 12-year multimedia deal with Fox network and Fox Sports 1 to be the domestic broadcast partner for the U.S. Open and other USGA championships.
Though financial terms weren't disclosed, a person with knowledge of the negotiations said the Fox bid was in the neighborhood of $100 million a year, more than double the previous contract. The person wasn't authorized to release details and spoke on condition of anonymity.

SOUTHAMPTON, New York -- Inbee Park understood the meaning of winning the U.S. Women's Open much better the second time around.
She appreciated, too, the magnitude of this particular accomplishment.
On Sunday, Park became the first player in the modern era to win the first three majors of the year.

ARDMORE, Pennsylvania -- Merion Golf Club did more than just hold its own.
Called too short, too cramped and too much of a pushover when the U.S. Open teed off, it nearly stole the show by the end.

ARDMORE, Pennsylvania -- LaRue Temple has to take off Sunday from working behind the bar.
He's needed on the bag of a U.S. Open contender.
Amateur Michael Kim should be one of those feel-good stories at Merion Golf Club as he makes his charge up the leaderboard.
But it's his caddie who was feeling the Philly love on Saturday.
