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.

Goosen received a special exemption in 2016 for Oakmont. Chances of another one for this year's major are slim.

"We're begging them," the 49-year-old South African said with a soft laugh.
