Leader Jordan Spieth at 11 under was six shots lower after three rounds than anyone in the nine previous Opens held here. Spieth can only be compared to two players this early in his career; Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods. Grace's 62 looked like being matched soon after as Johnson played his first 10 holes in five under par, but the big-hitting American could only find one more birdie and settled for a 64. Read More »

Dream day for him . Certainly a one-in-a-million shot, but who knows? Jordan Spieth almost made a hole-in-one on the par-three 14. He made birdie at each of his last four holes.

McIlroy recovers from rocky start to finish joint fourth

What's next for Kyrie Irving, LeBron James and Cleveland Cavaliers?

perth_map

I'm not going to accuse LeBron of such a thing. As recent signings Serge Ibaka and Kyle Lowry - the latter of which would be ideal for the Cavs , by the way - can't be traded until December 15. It also points to not a great relationship right now between Irving and James. Still, he's a tough, hard-nosed defender, which is something the Cavs have lacked at the point of attack with the poor-defending Irving . Read More »

Paredes, 30, will make his first career appearance on a Major League roster after going a combined 1-2 with one save and posting a 2.23 ERA (10 ER/40.1 IP) in 30 games with Triple-A OKC and Double-A Tulsa.

After the incident, Li rallied to play the final seven holes even, using a sand wedge as a putter . It has to do with it was someone else's day, and I didn't play as well as I should have. Tiger Woods had a vicious lip-out in his bid for 62 in the second round of the 2007 PGA Championship at Southern Hills. As great as Grace's 62 was Saturday, Li's 63 could be better. Read More »
