  • 2nd round under way at blustery...

    AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) — Lee Westwood might be wondering if he's contending for a green jacket or the claret jug.

    In search of his first major title, Westwood bundled up in long sleeves and returned to the course Friday at the Masters — a day that felt more like a British Open.

    He started his day with five pars to stay in the lead after being greeted by blustery winds and temperatures in the 50s — about a 25-degree contrast to opening day when he shot 5-under-par 67 to take a one-shot advantage over Louis Oosthuizen and Peter Hanson.

  • Membership issues creep up again...

    AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) — Jabbed, prodded and poked repeatedly about a topic that never really goes away, Billy Payne wouldn’t budge.
    Faced with questions at his annual news conference about when a woman would become a member at the home of the Masters, the Augusta National chairman gave different variations of the same answer: That’s our business, not yours.
    The topic was on the front burner again Wednesday, the eve of the year’s first major, because one of the club’s longtime sponsors, IBM, has a new CEO — Virginia Rometty. The last four CEOs at IBM, all male, have been invited to be members.

  • Baylor wins title, goes 40-0

    DENVER (AP) — Brittney Griner’s place in women’s basketball history is secure.
    Blocking layups, snagging rebounds, hitting shots over two and three helpless defenders, she towered over the competition all season long to earn player of the year and outstanding player of the NCAA tournament honors.

  • Isotopes open 10th season at...

    ALBUQUERQUE — To start the 2012 season, the Albuquerque Isotopes will become very familiar with the Omaha Storm Chasers and the Iowa Cubs.

    But it might take awhile for the Isotopes to get familiar with one another.

    The Isotopes, Albuquerque’s Triple-A franchise, throw out their first pitch on the road Thursday at Omaha. After an eight-game road swing to open the season, they will be home April 13 for eight games against those same teams.

    This will be season No. 10 for the Isotopes since making their debut in 2003. Since that time, the Isotopes have had three managers and two parent clubs, including their current Major League Baseball franchise, the Los Angeles Dodgers.
