    Golf: Horschel's wife opens up on battle with alcoholism

    Horschel and his wife met at Florida, where she played on the golf team. She gave birth to their first child, a daughter, right as Horschel was winning the BMW Championship and the Tour Championship at the end of 2014 to capture the $10 million FedEx Cup. They had their second child in April. Horschel declined to get into specifics on the extra layer of emotions after his playoff victory over Jason Day.

    Lexi Thompson hopes she can finally put the ANA Inspiration rules mess behind her. Thompson shot her third 6-under 65 on Sunday to finish off a nearly flawless wire-to-wire victory in the Kingsmill Championship with a tournament-record 20-under 264 total. She broke the record of 19 under at Kingsmill's River Course set by Annika Sorenstam in 2008. The victory came in Thompson's third event since she lost the ANA Inspiration in a playoff after being penalized four strokes for a rules violation reported by a television viewer, and she said she hopes chatter about that situation can finally be put to rest. "I'm so over that. It is in the past. It's unfortunate what happened, but it's time to move
