    Mauricio Pochettino reckons England can beat ANYONE at the World Cup. The Three Lions booked their place in the knockout stages with a 3-0 victory over Wales. 2England booked their place in the last-16 after beating WalesCredit: Getty 2Mauricio Pochettino reckons England can beat anyone at the World CupCredit: The Mega Agency After an disappointing first 45, Marcus Rashford struck twice either side of Phil Foden's first World Cup goal to secure their passage as group winners. Gareth Southgate's side will now face Senegal in the last-16 on Sunday in a game they'll be expected to win. But if England do progress, they're on course to play 2018 winners France or Argentina, depending on how they fare in their final group game.

    Los Angeles Dodgers reportedly have met with free agent Justin Verlander. Justin Verlander, one of the best pitchers in the game at the age of 39, finds himself on the free agent market and has some of the game’s richest teams pursuing him. Per Jon Heyman of the New York Post, the Los Angeles Dodgers are meeting with Verlander today. Word is Dodgers are meeting with Justin Verlander today. Would fit their preference for big talents on short-term deals (with of course very high AAV). Both NY teams interested and of course incumbent Astros. — Jon Heyman (@JonHeyman) November 28, 2022 The fit is obvious on the surface as both player and team are eyeing a short-term, high AAV deal. Verlander’s price tag is reportedly similar to what Max Scherzer got from the Mets last offseason. Scherzer, of course, signed for three years and $130MM, good for a $43.3MM AAV. While Verlander is older than Scherzer was in his trip through free agency, a deal in that realm is by no means unrealistic.Dodgers: What could a Justin Verlander deal...
    Washington State has been out of sight and largely out of mind for 10 days in advance of its Thursday night duel with 14th-ranked Utah. Which version of themselves will take the field at 7 p.m. on what should be a chilly but dry night in the Palouse? No team in the Pac-12 owns a line of demarcation quite as bold and obvious as WSU. For three games and 54 minutes, the Cougars looked like a contender. They won at Wisconsin, owned a 3-0 record and held a 12-point lead over Oregon midway through the fourth quarter. But since that point, the Cougars (4-3, 1-3) have looked decidedly average. They collapsed down the stretch against the Ducks, allowing three touchdowns in three minutes in a come-from-ahead loss, and haven’t been the same. Mostly, the offense has vanished. The Cougars scored 14 points in a loss at USC and 10 in a defeat at Oregon State. They have dropped three of their past four games and are closer to the bottom of the standings than the top. Quarterback Cam Ward has...
    That familiar ping can mean only one thing. Rather than being slow-cooked in the oven or stirred on the hob, your dinner has been blasted from cold (or worse, frozen) to hot in a matter of minutes… in the microwave. In culinary circles, it's a dirty word. Such is the snobbery around microwaves that Gordon Ramsay says they're the preserve of 'lazy cooks', while Raymond Blanc compares their use to 'an act of hate'. Even Mary Berry, who in 1988 devoted an entire book to microwave cooking, now swears she wouldn't use hers for anything except warming up a cup of cold coffee. And yet there are those among us who — whisper it — can't get enough of the humble microwave. Ninety-three per cent of us have one in our kitchens — a figure that has doubled since the 1990s.

    I turn on my computer. I wait impatiently as it boots up. I go online, and my breath catches in my chest—until I hear three little words: “Meg Ryan Fall.” As true devotees of the Meg Ryan Fall movement will undoubtedly note, this is a play on a line from Nora Ephron’s You’ve Got Mail. Alongside When Harry Met Sally and Sleepless in Seattle, You’ve Got Mail is one of Ephron's three Meg Ryan rom-coms to have inspired the yearly trend we now know as either “Nora Ephron Season” or, more commonly, Meg Ryan Fall.
    A Berks County man was arrested on a slew of charges Wednesday, Aug. 17 for sexually abusing two girls over the course of five years, authorities said. James D. Fisher, 59, remained held Thursday, Aug. 25 in the Berks County Jail on an unrelated offense, the Berks County District Attorney's Office said. An investigation into Fisher began on Monday, July 11, after the Central Berks Regional Police Department received a complaint from two girls who claimed that they had been sexually abused by Fisher when they were seven years old, authorities said. The alleged sexual abuse happened between 2011 and 2016, prosecutors said. In separate interviews, both victims claimed that the abuse happened at a home on Friedensburg Road in Lower Alsace Township. Fisher has been charged with the following offenses: Three counts of rape of a child Two counts of involuntary deviate sexual intercourse Three counts of aggravated indecent assault of a child Three counts of aggravated indecent assault Two counts of indecent assault Two counts of corruption of minors Two counts of endangering the welfare of children Two counts...
    SAN FRANCISCO — More than two years after indicating they would seek death against an alleged Bay Area gang member charged with murdering three people, federal prosecutors have reversed course, filing court papers that say execution is no longer on the table. In December 2019, the U.S. Department of Justice indicated that Michael “Gallo” Rebolledo, 33, would be the lone defendant to face a potential death sentence out of 10 alleged Sureño gang members charged with a total of seven murder counts and several other shootings. In a court document reversing the decision, filed July 12, prosecutors didn’t state the reason death is no longer being sought. President Joe Biden promised during the 2020 campaign to end federal death sentences, which were resumed under the Trump Administration, resulting in 13 executions. But while some federal prosecutors have since announced their intent not to seek death in several high-profile cases across the United States, others are behaving as if it is still an option. In Sacramento, for instance, the U.S. Attorney’s office has not yet officially ruled out seeking death for...
    The San Jose Downtown Association’s Dine Downtown program, a promotion intended to give local businesses a boost and customers some fresh dining options, returns this week. From July 21-31, restaurants, lounges and coffee houses will offer specials that range from fixed-price meals to chef specials to food-and-wine pairings. “After two years of pandemic, Dine Downtown could be one of the drivers compelling Bay Area residents and office workers out of their houses,” Julie Carlson, marketing director of the Downtown Association, said in announcing the participants. It’s the 14th year the SJDA has coordinated San Jose’s “restaurant week,” which this time will run for 11 days. Among the 20-plus participants are businesses that bravely opened as the region is emerging from the pandemic economy: The FAB (Food & Beverage); entertainment venues Mama Kin and San Pedro Social; Secco at the Hilton San Jose; and Serious Dumpling. One downtown mainstay — Mezcal — has participated in all 14 years of Dine Downtown. This time, the restaurant will offer a three-course, $30 prix fixe menu with choice of Tortilla Soup or Caesar Salad, an...
    ROAD rage murderer Kenny Noye opted to complete a course about the dangers of getting angry behind the wheel after getting clocked for speeding. The double killer, 75, was caught driving a £50,000 Mercedes GLC 220D luxury four wheel drive in February this year in Kent driving 47mph in a 40mph zone. 1Noye was given the option of taking a speed awareness course or having three points on his driving licenceCredit: PA:Press Association The former gangster was given the choice of having three points on his driving licence or taking a speed awareness course, which includes lessons about avoiding the dangers of road rage. Noye spent 21 years in jail for the M25 murder of Stephen Cameron in 1996. He also once stabbed an undercover police officer to death and was convicted in 1986 for handling gold bullion snatched in the £26 million Brink’s-Mat raid at Heathrow. The majority of the stolen gold was never recovered, although 11 bullion bars were found at his former home. He served eight years behind bars for his role in the heist, fined £500,000,...

    CLIFTON, N.J. (AP) — Nasa Hataoka shot a bogey-free 7-under-par 65 in perfect playing conditions and grabbed an early one-stroke lead in the $3 million Cognizant Founders Cup on Thursday. Hataoka ignited her round with a 10-foot eagle putt on No. 2 at Upper Montclair Country Club and added five birdies the rest of the way in posting her fifth straight round in the 60s. The 23-year-old is seeking her second straight tour win after winning in Los Angeles last month, then returning to Japan for a rest. The time off didn’t hurt her game in the event that honors the 13 founding members of the LPGA Tour. “I was originally planning to play in Palos Verdes last week, but I decided take the two weeks off and gear up for this tournament,” Hataoka said, adding she rested for three days, met with her trainer, did strength training and got in a little practice. Amy Yang of South Korea and Giulia Molinaro of Italy were tied for second and a shot ahead of Americans Ally Ewing and Ryann O’Toole....
    LA PINEDA, Spain (AP) — Scott Jamieson took a two-shot lead of the ISPS Handa Championship in Spain after the second round on Friday. Jamieson eagled the 18th hole to finish with a 7-under 63 at the Lakes Course in eastern Spain. Overnight leader Tapio Pulkkanen is his nearest chaser entering the weekend. The Finn followed up his opening-round 6-under 64 with a 67. Jamieson is seeking his second career European tour win after his sole title at the Nelson Mandela Championship in 2012. This season he has come close, leading the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship for three days in January before a poor final round cost him the title. “This year I seem to be coming out of the gates very well, I’ve had some good starts so far and I think it’s easier to play the golf course the first two rounds because you’re not necessarily playing other people at that point,” Jamieson said. “It gets tougher as the tournament goes on so hopefully I can do a good job of continuing to play the golf course.” Spaniard...
    HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. (AP) — Morgan Hoffmann left the RBC Heritage feeling like a winner, even if he didn’t make the cut. Hoffmann played his first PGA Tour even since 2019 because of his muscular dystrophy. He had not teed off on tour since the Shriners Hospital for Children Open in October 2019. And while the 32-year-old Hoffmann will miss the final two rounds at Harbour Town Golf Links after shooting 1-over par after 36 holes, he was pleased to be back on course. “I definitely wanted to prove to myself that I could do it again,” Hoffmann said following his second-round 72. “I know that I can and just need to sharpen up.” Hoffmann is playing on a major medical exemption. He’s got three more tournaments left to try to secure playing privileges. If not, he’s ready to put in the work to keep his career going forward. Hoffmann was out early Friday on the course, fans calling his name and shouting encouragement as he walked past. “Way to go, Morgan,” a...
    THIS is the incredible moment an enormous three-footed ALLIGATOR strolls across a golf course in Florida. Onlookers were left stunned as the knobbly monster barrelled its way along the green in Bonita Bay at the weekend. 2An alligator stunned onlookers as it made its way across a golf course in FloridaCredit: Twitter 2The beast was missed one of its feet as it plodded along casuallyCredit: Twitter The alligator paid absolutely no heed to the shocked golfers, who had been enjoying a casual swing in the Sunshine State. And despite being surrounded by putters, the relentless reptile calmly made an exit on its three feet. Twitter users were quick to react, with one saying: “Prehistoric killing machine!” Another joked: “Who put this golf course in my swamp?” One laughed: “What a way to start the week.” Another added: “Hope they let him play through!” Alligators are no strangers to Floridians, with the south-eastern US state home to roughly 1.25million of the jurassic snappers.

    PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Tiger Woods is going into the World Golf Hall of Fame with three others who no doubt will be overshadowed in the presence of a player who transcended the sport like no other. Perhaps that’s only fitting. It was like that every time Woods teed it up, from his “Hello, world” debut in Milwaukee in 1996 through his 15 majors and 82 titles on the PGA Tour. Win or not, Woods was playing and it seemed everyone else was along for the ride. Ernie Els might have summed it up as well as anyone in early 2000. They matched eagles on the 72nd hole at Kapalua and birdies in the playoff. Woods beat him on the second extra hole with a 40-foot putt for his 18th win worldwide and fifth in a row on the PGA Tour. Except for his age — 24 — Woods already had met current Hall of Fame requirements by then. “He’s probably going to be bigger than Elvis when he gets into his 40s,” Els said that day. Now...

The Northern Irishman claimed that the Bay Hill set-up has become so difficult to play on that top stars are skipping the event. 2Rory McIlroy couldn't hide his frustrationCredit: Reuters His frustration reached breaking point - quite literally - on the 12th hole, when he SNAPPED his club. The event only attracted four of the world's top ten amid complaints - despite the near-£10million prize money. After play, McIlroy fumed: "I feel punch drunk, to be honest.

    (CNN)Scottie Scheffler had to overcome not only a stacked field to win the Arnold Palmer Invitational, but also some brutal conditions that left many of the world's top golfers reeling from a grueling weekend of action.Scheffler's gutsy win at Bay Hill was his second title in three starts after winning February's Phoenix Open, victories that will push the 25-year-old American into the world's top five for the first time.Extra long rough and rapid greens were compounded by windy conditions over the weekend, but Scheffler recorded a bogey free back nine -- including two impressive par saves on 15 and 16 -- to take home the $2.16 million prize money."It feels great to be able to win here," Scheffler told reporters after finishing on five-under par, one clear of Viktor Hovland, Billy Horschel and Tyrrell Hatton. "To be completely honest with you, right now I'm exhausted. This course is a total beatdown trying to play.

    Federal health officials delayed a planned public meeting to review Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine for children under five. Citing the need to see more data as part of its rolling application process, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced on Friday, Feb. 11 that it would be delaying the planned meeting, raising questions about how soon children should get the COVID-19 shot. The FDA’s outside experts had been set to meet on Tuesday, Feb. 15 to discuss if children under the age of 5 could safely receive a low dose of the vaccine safely. Pfizer said on Friday that it will be waiting for new data on a three-dose series of the vaccine for children between 6 months and 5 years old, the only age group in the US still not eligible to receive the vaccine. The trial in children 6 months through 4 years of age is still in progress and data on the first two doses in that age group are being shared with the FDA on an ongoing basis, officials noted. Cases continue to accumulate according...
    BEIJING (AP) — The men’s downhill at the Beijing Olympics was postponed because of wind that gusted at up to 40 mph at the top of the course when the race was supposed to start Sunday, delaying the opening race of the Alpine schedule. No new date was announced immediately. The first women’s race — the giant slalom — is scheduled for Monday, with Mikaela Shiffrin of the United States defending her Olympic gold from 2018. At the top of the speed course known as The Rock at Yanqing Alpine Skiing Center, the wind was deemed too dangerous when Sunday’s men’s race originally was scheduled to begin at 11 a.m. The start was delayed three times for a total of three hours in the hope that the wind would relent. But eventually the decision was made at 1 p.m. to put it off to another day. Wind was also an issue for Alpine skiing four years ago at the Pyongchang Games, where multiple races were postponed and the schedule was shuffled repeatedly. Saturday’s third and final training session for...
    TYCOON footballer Gareth Bale is getting taxpayer cash to build an indoor golf course. The Wales and Real Madrid star will receive a slice of £2.35million towards the project. 1When he isn't playing football, Real Madrid star Bale also likes to play golfCredit: Getty It will go on converting an empty building into a 23,000sq  ft golf bar in his home city of Cardiff. Called Par 59, it will open in spring and have three nine-hole courses, a bar and a restaurant. Bale, 32, who is paid about £500,000 a week, already owns the Elevens sports bar nearby. His newest venture is one of three businesses to get an undisclosed share of an interest-free Welsh government loan. Cardiff council said the bar would help the city’s post-pandemic recovery. Par 59 co-founder Nick Saunders said it would create 45 jobs and occupy a site that had been empty for six years.

    ALTENMARKT-ZAUCHENSEE, Austria (AP) — Swiss skier Lara Gut-Behrami won the fourth women’s World Cup downhill of the season Saturday after Olympic champion Sofia Goggia had an awkward crash halfway down her run. The Italian, who had won the previous three downhills, seemed unhurt and skied down the course shortly after the incident. Gut-Behrami timed 1 minute, 45.78 seconds in perfect conditions on the three-kilometer Kälberloch course to beat Kira Weidle of Germany by one-tenth of a second. Ramona Siebenhofer of Austria was 0.44 behind in third. It was Gut-Behrami’s second win of the season but first since missing nearly four weeks of racing following a coronavirus infection. “My last two months were everything but good,” the Swiss skier told Austrian TV. “I am happy that I’m getting back into the rhythm. It’s cool that I could ski on a high level for three days in a row,” added Gut-Behrami, who had posted the third-fastest time in both trainings. Downhill world champion Corinne Suter trailed her Swiss teammate by 0.99 in seventh and defending overall champion Petra Vlhova finished 2.27 behind...
    The 2022 Sony Open heads back to historic Waialae Country Club this weekend and we have picks, predictions and best bets to help you out.  Fresh off his win at the Sentry Tournament of Champions, Cameron Smith enters the 2022 Sony Open looking to pull a Justin Thomas with a sweep of the Hawaii swing. And considering that the Aussie also has a PGA Tour win notched at Waialae Country Club, it’s hard not to think that he’s set to make a good run at back-to-back victories and easy to see why he’s installed as the favorite. With that said, there is some competition around him. While Bryson DeChambeau and several others may have dropped out of this field, the Sony Open almost always delivers an entertaining tournament and a unique golf course challenge that opens up the field for everyone. That is to say, there isn’t just one way to win at Waialae. As almost always, ball-striking will be crucial to win, but so too will putting on this Bermuda grass and, to some degree, driving accuracy as well....
    KAPALUA, Hawaii (AP) — Adam Scott was among the first batch of players the Saudi International announced as playing its Asian Tour event next month, and now he no longer is on the list. The means he won’t need a conflicting event release from the PGA Tour, nor will he be required to play the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am twice over the next three years, the stipulation for PGA Tour members going to Saudi Arabia. A Saudi tournament spokesman said only that Scott’s playing schedule has changed, and he will only play Abu Dhabi and Dubai before preparing for “the big block” of PGA Tour events. Some other players going to Saudi Arabia to collect handsome appearance money from the government’s Public Investment Fund did not seem bothered by the strings attached to getting a release. “We’re not getting our arms twisted to go” to Saudi Arabia, Marc Leishman said. “We’ve been offered what we’ve been offered, take it or leave it. So I took it.” He hasn’t played the Pebble Beach Pro-Am since 2011, meaning the Aussie will be...
    Promising data from South Africa, the world's first Omicron hotspot, suggest that the country's Omicron-driven Covid wave is fading after just one month. After seeing a 1,800 percent increase in infections from late November through mid-December, cases appear to have peaked nationally at about 27,000 on December 15. Cases have fallen in the country for the last five days in a row. Between December 15 and December 22, the case rate has dropped by about 22 percent. At the same time, data from South Africa suggests that Omicron cases are more likely to be mild, in part because vaccinated and previously infected people who catch the variant have protection from severe disease. In the U.S., new Covid cases are rising sharply with about three in four cases nationwide caused by Omicron. On Wednesday, the US recorded a staggering 238,378 new daily infections, and 2,024 new deaths. Since the start of the pandemic, the US has recorded 51.5 million cases of COVID-19 and 812,069 deaths.  The Omicron variant now accounts for 73 percent of new cases in the US and pushes...

    The White House denied that it scrapped plans to host a press conference after President Joe Biden meets with his Canadian and Mexican counterparts because aides do not want Biden answering reporter questions. Last week, White House press secretary Jen Psaki indicated that Biden would continue the tradition of holding a press conference after the so-called "Three Amigos" meeting, an event organized after all eight preceding summits. BIDEN FEELS LEFT-WING PRESSURE AGAINST RESTING ON INFRASTRUCTURE LAURELS But reporters will only be allowed in the meeting rooms for short periods of time before Biden speaks with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador separately and then once more when they all gather together, according to White House spokesman Chris Meagher on Wednesday.

    Getty Chase Elliott celebrates a win at the Charlotte Roval. The NASCAR Cup Series drivers head to the Charlotte Roval on Sunday, October 10, for the final Round of 12 race. Chase Elliott will enter the weekend as the early favorite based on his history of success, and he will have the opportunity to win his third straight race at the road course. BetMGM released the early odds for the Bank of America Roval 400, confirming that the Hendrick Motorsports driver will be the favorite at 2-1. One of his teammates, Kyle Larson, has the second-best odds at 9-2 while Joe Gibbs Racing’s Martin Truex Jr. enters the weekend at 6-1. Denny Hamlin and Kyle Busch round out the top five tied at 12-1. Elliott has extremely favorable odds due to his considerable amount of success at the Charlotte Roval. He finished sixth in the inaugural trip to the 2.28-mile road course on September 30, 2018. He then visited Victory Lane in back-to-back races in 2019 and 2020. Now Elliott will try to complete the Charlotte Roval hat...
    BOSTON (CBS) — Even with all the wild scenarios that could have played out on the final day of the MLB regular season, most baseball fans had an inkling that it would be the Red Sox and the Yankees — two of the biggest rivals in all of the sporting world — duking it out in the AL Wild Card game. That is exactly what Major League Baseball will get Tuesday night at Fenway Park. It’s win or go home for both teams, as the winner will advance to the ALDS to face off against the AL East champion Tampa Bay Rays. The Red Sox are hosting Tuesday’s Wild Card game because they went 10-9 against the Yankees in the regular season and thus owned the tiebreaker between the two teams. Considering Boston took seven straight against New York to start the season, the tides have turned a bit in the second half. The Yankees are riding a six-game win streak against the Red Sox, including a three-game sweep at Fenway Park just a few weeks ago. It was that...

    Girona could not defeat Las Palmas in Montilivi this Sunday afternoon, but the feelings that the team left again were good. Especially in the second half, in which Stuani had three clear goal options. “We know that Stuani is going to score a lot of goals. Today he was not successful in front of goal, but the responsibility of scoring has to be everyone’s, ”declared the Girona coach at a press conference once the match ended. The goal was the only thing that the Catalans lacked to be able to add the three points. Little, but at the same time a lot. “In the second half we have generated a lot more. We have taken the initiative, but it has not helped us to win. I am satisfied with what I have seen, but of course we can improve ”, insisted Míchel speaking of the summary of the duel.

    07/20/2021 at 12:41 PM CEST Manoj Daswani In order for the reader to find these lines written in the international terminal of the gigantic Haneda airport, 33 kilometers from the Olympic Stadium in Tokyo, the journalist who signs them has had to go through the same odyssey as the rest of the special envoys of the international press. Namely: temperature recording every day and for 15 consecutive times through a platform called Icon, geolocation of the mobile phone weeks before entering Japanese territory, filling in endless data to sometimes astonishing questions (do you intend to enter the country with several gold bars?) and the most expensive thing, getting first the organization of the Games and then a Japanese ministry to authorize the plan of activities described to the millimeter and in detail. So it’s been weeks since the special envoys have had to decide whether on Saturday we are going to wait at the finish line for the metallic dream of Alejandro Valverde; or if we are going to be in judo, taekwondo or the shooting...
    A female sailor has become the first woman to complete the intense training needed to become a Naval Special Warfare Combatant-Craft Crewman (SWCC), the Associated Press reported. The 37-week training course prepares people to be the boat operators who transport Navy SEALs, but also perform their own classified missions at sea. The unidentified woman received her pin on Thursday, along with 17 other sailors who graduated, the AP reported. She is also the first of 18 women to successfully try out for a position as a SWCC or SEAL, the AP reported. Only 35% of those who begin the SWCC training end up graduating. “Becoming the first female to graduate from a Naval Special Warfare training pipeline is an extraordinary accomplishment and we are incredibly proud of our teammate,” Rear Adm. H.W. Howard III, the commander of Naval Special Warfare, told the AP. “Like her fellow operators, she demonstrated the character, cognitive and leadership attributes required to join our force.” Female United States Marine Corps (USMC) recruits from Lima Company, the first gender integrated training class in San Diego, support...

Shaw set up the second goal for Harry Maguire before crossing for Harry Kane to make it 3-0 in the 4-0 win over Ukraine in the quarter-finals. Told about his achievement of overtaking Zidane’s contributions at a Euro, Shaw said: "A very strange stat! A nice one, I think. "Obviously, Zidane was one of the best midfielders ever and I can't compare to him. "But the most important thing for me was reaching the semi-final, getting another game at Wembley in front of our own crowd and hopefully making them happy again." Shaw has been impressive for England and so far,...
    ANTIOCH — More than five years after golfers took their last swings at the Roddy Ranch Golf Club, plans are taking shape for its new life as a regional park. While no one knows exactly what it will look like, East Bay Regional Parks District planners on Thursday night gave residents a glimpse into three concepts, all of which will restore habitat, protect endangered species and native grasslands while allowing for some passive recreation such as walking, jogging, picnicking, horseback riding or biking. East Bay Regional Parks collaborated with the East Contra Costa County Habitat Conservancy to buy the property three years ago. They envision the 230-acre land at the border of Antioch and Brentwood as a gateway to the future Deer Valley Regional Park, an unbroken open space of some 3,500 acres from Balfour Road down Vasco Road to almost Interstate 580 northwest of Livermore. “It’s incredibly biologically rich,” Abigail Fateman, executive director of the East Contra Costa County Habitat Conservancy, said, noting some protected plant species exist there that aren’t found anywhere else in the county. One of...
    (CBS New York) — The PGA Tour returns from the West Coast for the Travelers Championship at TPC River Highlands. After braving Torrey Pines at the U.S. Open, a strong field will face a different sort of course. TPC River Highlands offers up its fair share of scoring opportunities. Defending champion Dustin Johnson shot a third-round 61 last year, which was still three strokes short of Jim Furyk’s course-record 58 in 2016. Last year, the Travelers was the third tournament after golf’s COVID-forced layoff. But it was the first of the three events to occur on its originally scheduled date. No fans attended, of course. But this year, approximately 10,000 spectators will be on hand each day.

His win at last year’s Travelers was the first of three wins in a season that ended with the FedExCup. But his play has dropped off some this year. He tied for 19th at the U.S. Open...
