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.

  • FIFA under fire for disbanding anti-racism task force

    By Chris Bertram MANCHESTER (Reuters) - World soccer's governing body FIFA was under fire on Monday for winding up its anti-racism task force with former presidential candidate Prince Ali Bin Al Hussein of Jordan describing the move as worrying and shameful. FIFA secretary general Fatma Samoura confirmed the decision when she spoke to the Soccerex conference in Manchester, saying the task force had a "very specific mandate". "We can live with perception (created by disbanding the task force) but we are taking very firm action." However, Prince Ali, a former FIFA executive committee member who has twice run for the presidency, said that "the notion that the current FIFA leadership believes that the task force’s recommendations have been implemented is shameful." He added that the announcement was "incredibly worrying".
