AUGUSTA, Ga. — Xander Schauffele could have ruined perhaps the greatest golf story ever told.

Like all NBA playoff contenders, the Knicks hope to avoid the play-in scenarios that will involve the teams that finish the regular season in seventh through 10th place in each conference.

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...

Fantasy owners must factor in playing time when looking at waiver wire
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.

AUGUSTA, Ga. — Phil Mickelson had been waiting for the kind of round he shot Saturday for a long time. He just wishes it had come sooner. Mickelson, for weeks, has been saying he felt his game is close to being sharp, yet it hasn’t shown in his scores. He rallied on Friday to make...

Surprising Penguins have NHL trade deadline decision to make
Sorry about that, but I just noticed an unaccountable typographical error in my preseason prediction column. Somehow Mike Sullivan was named as the first coach most likely to be fired, when I know I wrote that he would win the Jack Adams Trophy.

Imperfect replay system is still better than none at all
There is no greater love/hate relationship in all of sports than replay. It is essential … and it is bothersome. It increases integrity within the games … and slows them to a crawl. It gets bad calls turned to good calls … except when it doesn’t. And, as we saw Thursday at Citi Field, there...
