One more back surgery followed that brief return in 2017, and it’s been a slow road back. In the FedEx Cup finale, however, Woods is picking up momentum. He opened with a 62 at Aronimink two weeks ago on a rain-softened course and stayed within five shots of the lead the rest of the way until he tied for sixth.

Playing in the second-last group, Stanford went eagle-double bogey-birdie from the 15th, then saw her birdie chance brush the hole on No. 18. She crouched with her hands on her head, tapped in for par, then went to sign autographs out of sight of the playing area. Seeking a first LPGA title, Olson teed off two shots ahead of Kim and then gave one back at the par-3 2nd hole. The leaderboard 11

The Ontario government has filed notice to appeal a judge’s ruling that killed Premier Doug Ford’s original proposed cut to Toronto council.

“I was hoping he would sign with us,” said Kane, “but I like the fact a big-time free agent left and did something you don’t see too much in the NHL. I think it sets a tone, sets a precedent for players. I like the fact he had the courage to make that move.” It’s fair to say that what other NHLers thought of Tavares’ decision was based, at least a bit, on geography 7
