  • A Tour pro charged for clubs? And can't pay?

    SPRINGFIELD, N.J. – Rich Beem opened with a 1-under 69 on Thursday at the PGA Championship, his first under-par round on the PGA Tour since 2012. As good as that moment was for the 45-year-old, his week didn’t start that well. Beem, who won the 2002 PGA Championship, rarely plays on Tour and spends his time now working as an analyst for Sky Sports. As he readied for his start at Baltusrol he reached out to Matt Rollins, the Tour rep for Parsons Xtreme Golf (PXG), to order a set of the company’s clubs. He was charged $2,800. That’s when things became a little uncomfortable. PGA Championship: Full-field scores | Live blog: Day 1 | Photo gallery “He gave me a bill, he tried to run my credit card

  • This scary tandem could make life easier for Jimmy Garoppolo

    Whether it was Tom Brady or Jimmy Garoppolo, the pieces surrounding the New England Patriots’ starting quarterback swapped and shuttled in and out of positional groupings Thursday. This is every training camp for coach Bill Belichick, a few weeks when depth charts and lineups fall into a nebulous mix of tinkering and unlikelihood. It’s a challenge figuring out where the Patriots’ roster construction is headed in July.

  • Twins Trade Eduardo Nunez to Giants

    After Thursday’s game, the Twins announced that utility infielder Eduardo Nunez was traded to the San Francisco Giants for lefthanded reliever Adalberto Mejia. In a corresponding move, Jorge Polanco was recalled from Triple-A Rochester. Nunez has had a breakout season this year, hitting .296/.325/.439 with a career-high 12 home runs and 26 stolen bases, also a career high. Despite eclipsing his previous high in home runs by seven, Nunez’s isolated power was still a below-average .144 thanks to fewer doubles relative to his at-bats, but his speed will play in the enormous AT&T Park. With incumbent third baseman Matt Duffy still on the disabled list, Nunez likely slots in there with Conor Gillaspie

Kane was arrested late last week for allegedly harassing three women, and potentially choking and pulling the hair of one of them.

  • Hamilton: Hungary stewards’ Rosberg ruling sets precedent for all

    Lewis Hamilton believes the FIA stewards’ ruling on Nico Rosberg’s pole position lap partly set under yellow flags in Hungary sets a precedent for all other Formula 1 drivers. Hamilton was forced to abandon his final Q3 lap in Hungary after a spin for Fernando Alonso sparked double waved yellow flags at Turn 8. Rosberg was one of the last drivers to come across the double waved yellow flags, lifting briefly through the incident site before taking pole by one-tenth of a second. The stewards investigated the incident late in the day, reportedly at Hamilton’s behest, but felt that Rosberg slowed sufficiently despite setting a session-best middle sector. Speaking on Thursday about the incident, Hamilton

  • NASCAR issues warnings to five Sprint Cup teams

    Five Sprint Cup teams were given warnings Wednesday for inspection failures last weekend at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. For failing the laser inspection station twice in prerace, NASCAR warned the No. 5 Chevrolet of Kasey Kahne, the No. 27 Chevrolet of Paul Menard and the No. 83 Toyota of Matt DiBenedetto. It’s the fourth warning this season for DiBenedetto’s car, which means the team would lose pit selection for Sunday’s race at Pocono Raceway. It’s the first warning for Kahne and third for Menard. NASCAR also issued warnings because the No. 41 Chevrolet of Kurt Busch and the No. 43 Ford of Aric Almirola failed template inspection twice before qualifying.

  • Here's why 2018 could mean a great deal for the Royals at the 2016 trade deadline

    The Kansas City Royals were always going to have to make some choices with a crop of talent set to hit free agency after 2017, but the performance in 2016 has actually presented general manager Dayton Moore with an even tougher conundrum as we eye the trade deadline (Aug. 1, 4 p.m. ET). Coming off a World Series championship with a similar team in 2016, injuries and rotation issues have mostly been culprits in a 49-51 record. The Royals entered Thursday 8 1/2 games out in the AL Central and 6 1/2 games out of the second wild card with five teams to jump over. Basically, they have the look of a non-contender. Then the harsh reality of having a relatively cheap owner in a small market sets in,

The Englishman and former fighter was asked about countryman Kell Brook’s longshot attempt to defeat middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin on Sept. 10 at London’s O2 Arena. “I understand why Kell took the fight — one’s for the payday,” Hatton said. “Two, he won the title, you want routine defenses to put pennies in the bank to help yourself and family in the future. He’s done that now. Now, he wants to test himself against the best.” Hatton said that Brook, the unbeaten International Boxing Federation welterweight champion,

Lagares already missed a month due to the thumb injury, which he suffered trying to make a diving catch back on June 4, and it has continued to nag him since his return earlier in July. A timetable for his recovery from surgery is uncertain but it's the type of procedure that could very well knock Lagares out for the remainder of the season.
