AKRON, Ohio -- Matt Kuchar finished with a 12-foot birdie at the Bridgestone Invitational, which had no bearing on the outcome but still had a few ramifications.Kuchar tied for third, so that putt was worth an additional $249,250. It cost Jordan Spieth enough world ranking points that Dustin Johnson moved ahead of him to No. 2 by the slimmest of margins.And that birdie putt could send Kuchar to the Olympics.Whether he earns a spot in Rio de Janeiro is now out of Kuchars hands. The Americans are allowed the maximum four players because all of them are among the top 15 in the world ranking, and the birdie allowed him to move to No. 15. Still to be announced is which four Americans will go to Rio.Of the top four in the world ranking -- Johnson (2), Spieth (3), Bubba Watson (5) and Rickie Fowler (7) -- Watson is the only one who has said he is going. The biggest question marks of that group are Spieth and Fowler. Thats why Kuchars birdie putt was so important, because if two Americans choose not to go, those spots could end up going to Patrick Reed and Kuchar.Kuchar wants to play in the Olympics, though its still a long way off. Not only does he need at least two players to withdraw, he has to be sure he stays among the top 15 in the world ranking after this week.Olympic qualifying is based on the world ranking published next Monday, and that brings Phil Mickelson into the equation. Mickelson would have to finish alone in second at the Scottish Open -- he won the last time it was held at Castle Stuart -- to move ahead of Kuchar and be in position for any Olympic withdrawals. If Lefty were to win, he would have a mathematical chance to move ahead of Reed as the first U.S. alternate.J.B. Holmes, Shane Lowry and Chris Wood also are at Castle Stuart and could bump Kuchar from the top 15 if they were to win. A victory by Wood likely would be enough for him to reach No. 15 and give the U.K. three players.---HURLEY Game notes Billy Hurley III already delivered one of the most inspirational stories of the year when the former Naval officer won the Quicken Loans National at Congressional not far from his Virginia home, a tournament created to honor the military.Then, he chose to give up his spot in the British Open to honor a family commitment -- his sisters wedding.And it keeps getting better.For the last few years, PGA Tour rules officials and other key employees have been receiving handwritten notes from Hurley thanking them for their work. When asked about this, Hurley smiled and said, I write a lot of notes.Its a lost art that goes back decades. Arnold Palmer once showed the way to a young Jack Nicklaus on writing thank-you notes to tournament directors in the 1960s. Hurley goes beyond that.I write to the tournament director, the superintendent and title sponsors, at least at the tournaments Im playing, he said. And then the whole tour staff. Theres a lot of people that make this possible.Hurley doesnt know where he picked up this habit.I just think its the right thing to do, he said. They work hard for us. I dont know what their salaries are, but its not what ours are.---HOME SWEET HOME: Shane Lowry is playing the PGA Tour as a member for the first time this year, and what he hopes is many years to come.But he has no plans for moving his home base away from Ireland. His role model is Padraig Harrington, a PGA Tour member for more than a decade who has never followed other Europeans by getting a home in Florida.I cant see myself moving to the States at all, Lowry said. As everyone knows, Im quite friendly with Padraig, so hes done it for the last 15 years, traveled over and back. Im not finding it too difficult.Lowry typically plays two or three weeks in a row before going back to Ireland. He usually can get out Sunday night and be home Monday.Dublin is my home now in Ireland, and I see that being the case for the next while, he said.And how does he practice in the winter?I dont, Lowry said with a laugh. The weather is obviously not great. You can get out and hit shots for an hour. I just need to keep the rust away for me. ... I might play nine holes with my friends. Im not one of these guys that feels like I need to practice all every day. If I play nine holes four, five times a week, Im pretty happy.---McGIRT DOES EUROPE: Memorial winner William McGirt is excited about his first trip to the British Open, mainly because of links golf, but also one other oddity.Ive never been to Europe, McGirt said.Yes, he has a passport. McGirt played in South America when he was on the Web.com Tour, and he played in Malaysia in 2012. He qualified for the Open by being in the top 20 in the FedEx Cup, and hes going over on the charter from Philadelphia.Im looking forward to playing a completely different style of golf, he said. I grew up playing a golf course not manicured anywhere close to what we have out here. So I learned to play bump-and-run shots. Being able to use your imagination, thats the biggest thing Im looking forward to, where theres no such thing as a standard shot.---DIVOTS: Bubba Watson is all in for the Olympics, but he is leaving caddie Ted Scott at home. Watson said longtime friend Randall Wells will be on the bag for him in Rio. ... Jean Van de Velde, who lost a three-shot lead on the final hole in the 1999 British Open at Carnoustie, is making his PGA Tour Champions debut this week in the Dicks Sporting Goods Classic. ... The Greenbrier Classic has been canceled because of deadly flooding, but the charter flight to the British Open is still going. The same plane that takes players and others who would have been at The Greenbrier is the one that takes them from Scotland to the Canadian Open. The only difference? It now leaves Sunday night from Philadelphia. ... John Daly will be keeping a busy schedule the next two months. He begins his stretch of majors at Royal Troon for the British Open and Carnoustie for the Senior British Open. Then, its back over the ocean to New Jersey for the PGA Championship at Baltusrol. Two weeks later, he has the U.S. Senior Open at Scioto in Ohio before heading back across the Atlantic to play the Czech Masters on the European Tour.---STAT OF THE WEEK: The winners of the three World Golf Championships this year all won in their previous start -- Adam Scott (Honda Classic, WGC-Cadillac Championship), Jason Day (Arnold Palmer Invitational, WGC-Dell Match Play) and Dustin Johnson (U.S. Open, WGC-Bridgestone Invitational).---FINAL WORD: I work in the Army 14 years. ... And training every morning, thats why we come to play golf, I think really easy. -- Thongchai Jaidee, a former paratrooper in Thailand, after his eighth European Tour victory in the French Open.

Jordan Lynch, the all-purpose Heisman Trophy finalist from Northern Illinois, failed to make it into that exclusive club. GURNEE, Ill. -- Charley Hull is fresh as a daisy, and England is dreaming big.Hull helped England grab the lead in the UL International Crown on Saturday, and the United States advanced with a sweep against Japan.Hull, who missed Fridays four-ball session with a fever and trouble with her asthma, teamed with Melissa Reid for a 3-and-1 victory over sisters Ariya and Moriya Jutanugarn of Thailand. Holly Clyburn and Jodi Ewart Shadoff routed Pornanong Phatlum and Porani Chutichai 7 and 5, helping seventh-seeded England to a Pool B-best nine points.We couldnt have asked for much of a better day than we got today, Clyburn said.The U.S., which began the day with just three points, turned in its best performance so far in the rare team event on the LPGA Tour. Lexi Thompson and Cristie Kerr posted their second straight win with a 4-and-2 victory over Ai Suzuki and Ayaka Watanabe, and Stacy Lewis and Gerina Piller surged to a 3-and-1 win over Haru Nomara and Mika Miyazato.Taiwan also wrapped up a spot in the fourth session before a lingering thunderstorm postponed play with two Pool A matches still on the course, leaving two spots open for Sundays 10 singles matches. The country with the most points at the end of the weekend wins a silver trophy, to go along with $100,000 and a crown for each of its four players.Before the rain drenched the course, the players had to play through hot, humid conditions at the Merit Club about 40 miles northwest of Chicago.Have you ever seen the movie `Good Morning, Vietnam, where Robin Williams goes off into the tangent where its like, its hot, its sticky, its hot? a smiling Kerr asked. It was pretty much like that.The 20-year-old Hull struggled to breathe for much of Thursday night and got some oxygen and an IV to help her feel better. She watched the back nine of Reids gutsy effort playing by herself in a close loss to Japan, and felt fresh as a daisy heading into the third session.ddddddddddddShaking off a slow start, Hull and Reid won five straight holes to go from two down to three up. Hull had three straight birdies before she eagled the par-5 eighth. Reid closed out the string with a birdie on No. 9.Me and Mel both played awesome, so it was fun, Hull said.England did not make the field for the inaugural event in 2014, which Spain won with 15 points. It was considered an afterthought coming into this week, but the strong start has the women dreaming of what a victory could do for the sport in their country.You know, if we did win, hopefully it would inspire not only girls but women and men and some young guys and boys and stuff to want to take up the club and think that its fun and want to learn how to play this game, Reid said.The second-seeded U.S. was swept by England on Thursday, but the Americans rebounded with three points against Thailand in the second session and picked up even more momentum against Japan. Piller finished her match with a birdie on 17, and Thompson beat the oncoming storm with a closing eagle on 16.We stuck with our pairings, and we just tried to stay positive with it and go out and play aggressive, Thompson said. We knew we had to make birdies and just go for it.Piller and Lewis were tied with Nomura and Miyazato before Piller rolled in a birdie from the fringe on 12. Piller got a good look at the putt when Lewis left one just short from right in front of her ball.Any time you get a free read is huge, and after she hit it, she told me what she put it at and where it ended up, Piller said.
