  • Mad Dash: Former PGA star may earn $10 million to never play again

    Max Thompson at NBC on Yahoo Sports3 hrs ago

    Here's a question few will ever have to ponder: Would you rather chase your passion, or hang it up for an exorbitant amount of money? A recent report on Golf.com seems to suggest that former PGA star Anthony Kim is opting for the latter. Derailed by a brutal string of injuries in 2012, Kim disappeared from the pro ranks to heal and rehab, but two years later, has yet to return to the course. The reason may be a lucrative one. A friend close to Kim speculates that an insurance policy the golfer took out in case injury ended his career is worth at least $10 million, and possibly escalating closer to $20 million. If he takes another swing on the tour, that money is gone. More details here, but that's one tough call.

    Adam Scott and caddie Steve Williams announced Wednesday that they have ended their partnership.

    Scott and Williams had worked together since summer 2011, but Williams, 50, said at the start of this season that he hoped to scale back his tournament schedule and spend more time with family in New Zealand.

    “After discussing this in detail with Adam it became evident that my plan was not going to fit with Adam’s requirements so we decided to end our partnership,” Williams said. 

    With Williams on the bag, Scott won his first career major at the 2013 Masters, ascended to No. 1 in the world this past May and developed into one of the most consistent players on any tour, finishing outside the top 25 only once this calendar year.

  • Mad Dash: Penn State fans planning 'Joe-out' in Paterno's honor

    Max Thompson at NBC on Yahoo Sports1 day ago

    Happy days are back in Happy Valley for Penn State fans. The NCAA recently lifted the team's bowl ban, scholarships will be reinstated in 2015, and the Nittany Lions are 3-0 under the endless ball of energy that is new head coach James Franklin. So with spirits high, one group of fans has decided it's time to honor and celebrate Joe Paterno at this Saturday's game against UMass at Beaver Stadium. Instead of the "white-outs" the venue is so famous for, the group is proposing a "Joe-out," which is a little more difficult to pull off than waving white towels in the air. 

    The fans are undeterred, though, suggesting cardboard cutouts, JoePa masks, or even tribute hats for those that have them.
