Tiger Woods found himself 21 shots off the lead entering the final round of The Northern Trust, but that didn't mean he was ready to pack it in and move on to the BMW Championship next week. No, no, no ... Woods needed a good finish to help his chances of getting back to East Lake and he wasted no time Sunday in doing so. A perfect drive and a dart at the first set up Woods for his first birdie of the day after narrowly missing out on one Saturday.
The San Francisco Giants are parting ways with a fan favorite Sunday. After making a trade with the Tampa Bay Rays, the Giants designated veteran Hunter Pence for assignment. Pence, 37, will be placed on waivers following the move.
Imagine being able to walk around with two of golf's best for what felt like a casual round of golf. In their case, it also looked like a casual round. Woods used his putter to go over a steep slope from behind the 18th green, and he made a 6-footer coming back to end with a birdie.
The No. 2 overall pick in the 2020 NBA Draft is a nice place to be for the Warriors. Like every team in the league, the Warriors have plenty of needs, especially after a down season. There is a good chance that the Warriors shop this pick hard to find veteran help for their planned return to the NBA Finals, but if they don't move the pick then their priorities should include the center position, depth in the backcourt and, most importantly, NBA ready talent.
Sophia Popov marked her ball a few inches from the hole on the 18th green, pulled the brim of her cap over her face and began to cry in the arms of her caddie. Moments later and still wiping away tears, Popov tapped in the putt to complete a two-stroke victory at Royal Troon and another fairy-tale story at the Women's British Open. Ranked No. 304, Popov had never won a senior professional event before.
It seemed appropriate on a day when two fellow competitors at the Northern Trust shot scores uncomfortably close to his age that Phil Mickelson announced his plan to debut on the PGA Tour Champions. Scottie Scheffler's Friday-morning 59 briefly appeared like it wouldn't even be low round of the day until Dustin Johnson flatlined his way to a 60 in the afternoon. Like Roger Bannister's 4-minute-mile, the '60' barrier seems to fall now with the frequency of a one-legged drunk on an ice rink, and those low rounds by Scheffler and Johnson might have reminded Mickelson that the days when he can hang with that kind of firepower are fewer and farther between.
Bayern Munich – PSG looks set to be a thrilling UEFA Champions League final matchup on Sunday (start time, 3pm ET), featuring the “been there, done that” five-time European champions from Germany and the big-spending have-nots with all the French glory they could ever want but nothing from Europe's biggest stage. Bayern were most recently crowned champions of Europe in 2013, when they topped fellow Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund at Wembley Stadium. Perhaps no side has been as dominant, or made it look so easy, as Bayern have done since the knockout rounds resumed two weeks ago.
Back-to-back early playoff exits were enough to make the Washington Capitals realize they made a mistake. In the two years since promoting top assistant Todd Reirden instead of giving Stanley Cup-winning coach Barry Trotz a raise, they've been knocked out of the playoffs in the first round.

With the new regime in Washington, led by head coach Ron Rivera, the goal going forward was to rebrand the franchise and create a winning culture going forward.

As one of the older players in the NFL, AP knows what it's like to go through camp with a coaching staff who may be on the way out, and he definitely knows what it's like to be playing with a team who has a goal in mind and is on it's way to accomplishing that.
