Xander Schauffele hoping for major breakthrough after near-misses
AUGUSTA, Ga. — Xander Schauffele could have ruined perhaps the greatest golf story ever told. He was among the three players who were one stroke, one swing, one lucky bounce away from tying Tiger Woods in the 2019 Masters, and forcing Woods into a playoff absolutely nobody in creation wanted to see. Thankfully for all...

Fauci ‘not sure’ why Texas doesn’t have COVID uptick after nixing masks
It’s been some five weeks since Texas lifted its mask mandate, and there has yet to be an explosion of COVID-19 cases. It’s something Dr. Anthony Fauci can’t quite explain. “I’m not really quite sure,” he told MSNBC this week. “It could be they’re doing things outdoors.” Daily cases in Texas hovered above 7,000 in...

Rangers goaltender Alexandar Georgiev couldn’t tell you why he is always at the top of his game when facing the Islanders, but there’s no doubt it has been a trend over his four seasons in New York.

If it ain’t broke, Joe Biden will break it: Goodwin
The sage advice that “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” is older than Joe Biden, but apparently he never heard of it. Or doesn’t think much of it.  The president is on a tear, as in tearing up arrangements that were achieving their objectives. His early results are disastrous.  In an act of astonishing...

Why Bryson DeChambeau may never win the Masters
AUGUSTA, Ga. — Bryson DeChambeau was marching to the practice green with a certainty in his step, and a path naturally cleared ahead of him. There aren’t many people at Augusta National this spring, but those who were in DeChambeau’s way stepped aside quickly. They once did the same here for Jack Nicklaus, and for...

Nothing bursts the bubble of a fantasy baseball player like a rash of early season injuries. You can have a phenomenal draft and, in a blink of an eye, it can fall to pieces.

MLB swings and misses in political debacle to move All-Star game from Georgia
It’s clear Georgia’s new voter law is nothing close to the “Jim Crow on steroids” description attributed to our alleged unifier in chief, President Biden. Yet I’m pretty certain the law is an attempt by GOP Gov. Brian Kemp to ingratiate himself with Trump voters who believe Kemp didn’t do enough to prevent the Peach...

Closed schools are a harmful inequity, but teachers’ unions don’t give a damn
In New York City and nationally, school shutdowns without question do the most harm to minority, low-income and special-needs students. And it’s beyond outrageous that the teacher-union leaders who are behind the most egregious public-school closures pretend the opposite. They’re making things easier on the members, knowing full well that it hurts the kids they...

Team Biden caves on Iran — and gets nothing in return
Even before the “indirect” US-Iran talks in Vienna had finished up, Team Biden caved, with the State Department saying it’s ready to lift sanctions on the rogue regime to rejoin the nuclear deal — giving away all leverage without getting a thing in return. Spokesman Ned Price said Washington is “prepared” to lift all sanctions “that...

Letters to the Editor — April 11, 2021
No ticket for TigerI find it incomprehensible that Tiger Woods was not charged with speeding or reckless driving (“Tiger gets free drop,” April 8). The facts warrant it. He was driving at a speed of 87 miles per hour in an area with a 45-mph limit. The sheriff’s justification for not issuing a citation is...
