  • Tiger Woods squeaks out a win at Congressional


    BETHESDA, Md. (AP) — Congressional reopened its gates Sunday to thousands of spectators who got what they expected in the AT&T National — another win by Tiger Woods.

    Only this win didn't follow a typical script.

    Caught in a tense duel with Bo Van Pelt on another sweltering day, it looked as though Woods blinked first until Van Pelt matched him with mistakes of his own. Woods closed with a 2-under 69 and won by two shots when Van Pelt finished with his third straight bogey and had to settle for a 71.

  • Bolt upset by Blake in Jamaican 100 finals

      KINGSTON, Jamaica (AP) — When the Olympics start, it will be Usain Bolt doing the chasing.

    The World's Fastest Man wasn't even the fastest man in Jamaica on Friday night.

    Instead, that honor was snatched away by Yohan Blake, the man they call "The Beast," who blew away Bolt out of the starting blocks and finished the 100-meter final in 9.75 seconds to upset the world-record holder by 0.11 seconds in the Jamaican Olympic trials.

    How big a shocker? Time will tell. One thing for sure, however, is that the math for the London Olympics has changed dramatically.
