Paul Azinger used to say for years that the only thing that made a player choke was cash or prestige. The final World Golf Championship of the year provides an opportunity for a first at the HSBC Champions. No country has ever had four players win the four World Golf Championships, and even with only 19 players in the field — two of whom are not PGA Tour members — the United States has a chance to just that. Woods...
Performing for the first time in the United Arab Emirates, where strict rules govern what women wear in public, Bliss wasn’t about to risk offending a nation set to have WWE female wrestlers fight on the same card as the men. "The welcome was so warm," Bliss said of fighting Banks for the WWE Raw women’s championship, a year after female stars made only promotional appearances at the event. WWE is taking another step this weekend with a pay-per-view card...
A person with knowledge of the talks tells The Associated Press FIFA President Gianni Infantino is doubling down on his Club World Cup plans with a proposal for an annual tournament despite European soccer’s resistance to any competition that challenges the supremacy of the Champions League. The proposals, which include a global Nations League as a mini-World Cup every two years, were formed by FIFA to eliminate two little-regarded competitions: the current annual seven-team Club World Cup held in December...
It’s not very often a trade featuring a Pro Bowl caliber talent can be seen as a win for everyone involved, but that may just be what happened Monday. The Dallas Cowboys traded a 1st round pick to the Oakland Raiders for 24-year-old wide receiver Amari Cooper and there appears to be no consensus of the clear victor of the trade. Although his numbers have decreased in his fourth season, Cooper remains an explosive target on every snap. During his...
NEW ORLEANS (AP) — LSU coach Ed Orgeron hopes coaches will band together and demand changes to NCAA football’s targeting rule and how it is enforced. Orgeron’s suggestion comes just days after a target foul called last weekend LSU linebacker Devin White, a penalty which triggered White’s suspension for the first half of the fourth-ranked Tigers‘ next game against No. 1 Alabama on Nov. 3. Orgeron said he favors rules designed to protect players’ heads, however, he said the current...
DALLAS (AP) — Texas officials are requiring that the state’s largest schools report concussions suffered by high school athletes in a move seen as the nation’s biggest effort to track brain injuries among young athletes. The University Interscholastic League, Texas’ governing body for public high school sports, on Monday ordered the schools to submit individual concussion reports. Texas has more high school athletes than any other state with about 825,000. School staff must answer more than a dozen questions on...
A grievance the NFL Players Association filed on behalf of Panthers safety Eric Reid after his free-agent visit to the Bengals this spring has been denied by an arbitrator, according to sources informed of the decision.

Starting pitchers usually don’t finish the fifth inning and use of relievers is up markedly in an era when "bullpenning" has become a verb. "I know our series there was a lot of strikeouts, but there was the strategy part of it — I think that that’s very exciting for a baseball purist that loves to see what managers think and how you can kind of match up against the opposition." Postseason games this year have averaged a record 18.8...
