"Conor is as generous as it gets," Audie Attar said in response to McGregor not yet donating $500K to The Good Fight Foundation as promised.
After a weekend at the Masters when PGA Tour professional Billy Horschel got more attention for his bare feet than his play at Augusta National, he apologized for his fiery behavior. Horschel, who stumbled to a 50th-place finish at Augusta, Ga., following a 4-over-par 76 on Sunday, referenced his behavior without mentioning a specific incident. "I apologize to Augusta National, the Members of the Club and to the patrons for any conduct that may have crossed the line," Horschel said in the second of consecutive apology posts at Twitter.

Just weeks after the fight was announced, Conor McGregor is claiming that he is not fighting Dustin Poirier at UFC 264 on July 10. He made the comment in the midst of a Twitter spat between the two fighters. McGregor won the first meeting between the two when he was on the rise to UFC greatness. Poirier more recently won the rematch, setting up a blockbuster bout this summer. The bout could be in trouble after Poirier and McGregor went to battle on Twitter after Poirier called McGregor out for not following through on a $500,000 donation to his charity, The Good Fight Foundation. McGregor had promised the donation in the lead-up to their fight at UFC 257 in January. Poirier claims that McGregor's team stopped responding to his team's communications about the donation after he defeated McGregor at UFC 257 via second-round TKO stoppage. McGregor fired back, saying that Poirier's team never detailed how the money was to be directed.

The two men were cordial and respectful of one another, each of course talking about how they expected to win the fight, but with little to no trash talk. The sparks began flying over the situation surrounding the donation to Poirier's foundation. It's unclear if McGregor was serious or simply caught up in the heat of the moment, but their exchange on Twitter led the Irishman to saying that the fight was off and that he would fight someone else on July 10. "You're ripped you inbred hillbilly. Why do you wink with your ears? You f---ing brain dead hillbilly. 500k with no plan in place. Ye hang tight. Fool. You must be new to money," McGregor wrote. "The fight is off btw (by the way). I'm going to fight someone else on the 10th. Good luck on your old contract kid." https://twitter.com/TheNotoriousMMA/status/1381624066105344000?s=20 Just a few minutes later, McGregor didn't exactly pull back the comment about not fighting Poirier, but seemed to be saying as much, as he threw out another comment about making him pay with his brain. "My team does their due diligence to make sure every donation meets the mark. My generosity is known. You will pay with your brain for this attempt at smearing my name," he said. UFC officials had not yet commented on the exchange at the time of publication. https://twitter.com/TheNotoriousMMA/status/1381626207670784002?s=20 TRENDING > Georges St-Pierre tells Joe Rogan he would have returned for Khabib
So much for the old Augusta adage that supposedly demands Masters debutants quietly go learn the idiosyncrasies of the National, while allowing the experienced campaigners to hog the Sunday spotlight Between them, and to varying degrees, two 24-year-olds in Will Zalatoris and Bob MacIntyre played such active roles at the season’s first major that they not only underlined their credentials as future green-jacketeers but more immediately to appear in this year’s Ryder Cup. Zalatoris was the obvious rookie star of the show, whittling away Hideki Matsuyama’s six-shot lead with seven to play, down to one in the increasingly nervy climax. The American’s reaction said it all. His outright runner-up’s position was the best finish by a first-timer at Augusta since Dan Pohl 39 years ago, but Zalatoris was trying to emulate Fuzzy Zoeller’s historic feat of three years before. “The fact that I’m frustrated that I finished second in my third major says something,” Zalatoris said. Certainly, it will scream plenty to Steve Stricker. When he was appointed United States captain in February 2019, Zalatoris was ranked 2004th in the world with nowhere to compete but the mini tours. Stricker would just about have heard of the young blond-haired Californian by dint of him winning the US Junior Amateur title in 2014 and playing on the triumphant 2017 Walker Cup team at LA Country Club, where he won all three of his matches against Great Britain and Ireland. Stricker’s ears might well have pricked up when rumours circulated of the Owen Wilson lookalike pushing the US captain, Spider Miller, into the pool at the after-party. Little wonder his nickname is “Showtime”. But then the screen went blank as far as Zalatoris was concerned. Great young amateurs come and all too often they disappear in pro prime-time, and it was not until a tie for sixth at last year’s US Open when Zalatoris earned wider recognition. By then he was a winner on the Korn Ferry Tour, but because of the pandemic and the archaic PGA Tour membership rules, the feeder league to the main circuit was closed off. Zalatoris has been forced to rely on invites, but has accepted the challenge with such vigour that he arrived in Georgia on the back of five top-10s on the PGA Tour. At Sawgrass HQ, they will be scrambling to find a loophole to grant full membership so he can take his place in the FedEx Cup playoffs (he is a marketing department’s dream) but, fortunately for Stricker, he is eligible for Whistling Straits. At 23rd in the standings, Zalatoris still has some climbing to do, but if he carries on in this vein, his candidature will be irresistible. Stricker has six wild cards at his disposal and Zalatoris, up to world No 27, already looks extremely worthy. It will also help that Jordan Spieth is an advocate. The three-time major winner hurtled up to 12th in the list with his tie for third and that, on the back of his first victory in four years at the Texas Open the week before, makes Spieth basically certain of his place.
The Browns appear to be closing in on Jadeveon Clowney. Continuing a pursuit that began with a contract offer Clowney turned down last year, Cleveland remains interested in signing the free agent defensive end, a person familiar with the situation told The Associated Press. Clowney visited the Browns on March 24, and NFL Network reported on Monday that he'll return to Cleveland's headquarters Wednesday — a visit that could include a physical that may lead to a contract agreement.
