    The title of Arnold Palmer's final memoir that's due out in a few weeks is called A Life Well Played, which couldn't be more appropriate, especially now in light of his passing Sunday at age 87. "His shoulder never healed and it started a bit of a downward spiral," his personal assistant for 50 years, Doc Giffin, tells PEOPLE. Palmer, the winner of 62 PGA Tour titles and seven major championships, could no longer play the game he loved so much, the game that had given the greenskeeper's son from Latrobe, Pennsylvania, so much.

  • Nick Saban would ‘love’ for Blake Barnett to stay at Alabama

    At least from Alabama’s side of it, the door’s not completely shut on Blake Barnett‘s future being in Tuscaloosa. Earlier Wednesday, a report surfaced that Barnett had decided to leave the football program and transfer out.  In meeting with the media a short time later, Nick Saban confirmed that Barnett had “expressed some concern about his future” at a meeting earlier in the day. The head coach said he “didn’t know” when asked if Barnett, who lost the starting quarterback job to true freshman Jalen Hurts earlier this year, was still a part of the team, although he made it clear that the redshirt freshman was still welcome in the locker room if he changes his mind.

  • Rangers believe Zibanejad’s best is yet to come

    It’s plausible – yet not guaranteed – that Derick Brassard will be better next season than the player he was traded for, Mika Zibanejad. Plenty of New York Rangers fans are justified in being excited about the long-term impact of the move, and not merely because of the second-round pick they received in the swap. Zibanejad is a lot younger than Brassard. Even if Brassard ages well at 29, his Swedish trade counterpart is merely 23. The Rangers, quite reasonably, wonder if Zibanejad’s best days are still ahead of him. “He’s a younger player that our scouting staff and our management all felt he was on the upswing,” Vigneault said to the Rangers’ website. “The speed is there. The skill is there.
