Aussie stars stumble as Tiger Woods lights up the Masters

Molinari also played alongside Woods in the final round at Carnoustie.

It's an image the officials at the National are trying to beat to the punch this year as weather threatens to derail an already dramatic tournament with Tiger Woods making his fifth attempt at a green jacket on Sunday.

Tony Finau was already four under for the day when he came within inches of an albatross on the par-five eighth. Players will go off the first and 10th tees in hopes of finishing before afternoon thunderstorms that are in the forecast.

He got up and down for birdie at 15, where his chip on left him two feet, and he reached 11-under with a seven-foot birdie at the par-three 16th.

Woods split the fairway with a 309-yard drive, and then hit the best approach shot of the day at the seventh to set up a tap-in birdie.

He completely changed his putting stroke, and worked in the gym and on the range to add distance, and he has played as well as any golfer in the world over the last calendar year. "It will be an exciting day tomorrow". The shot was pure, hooking around the pines to the green. A security guard - a Georgia Bureau of Investigation agent - came rushing in to help mange the patrons.

Silence, power struggle: Fallout from Magic Johnson's Lakers exit
Doc Rivers has proven to be able to get as much out of his team as possible, even after the exodus of talent they experienced. Lamb is coming off a career-best season that included three game-winning shots (one of them the 50-foot heave in Toronto ).

House committee chair extends deadline for Trump's tax returns
"Those concerns lack merit". "Concerns about what the Committee may do with the tax returns and return information are baseless". Trump's tax returns in NY will have some of the same information found in the president's federal tax returns.

Jurgen Klopp urges Liverpool to ignore past pain ahead of Chelsea game
Then Chelsea condemned anti-Semitic chanting by Blues fans during the club's 2-2 Europa League draw at MOL Vidi on December 13. Obviously that club has a long history of racism and many of us associate them with the worst of football fan culture.

Woods hopped out of the way, winced and repeatedly flexed his ankle, and then poured in another putt. This is the gallery that has longed to see him recapture the past, especially after four back surgeries that only two years ago left him hobbling up the stairs, wondering if he would play again.

The delay lasted only 29 minutes. On the par three 16th Woods hit a superb tee shot - the closest to the hard pin to that stage of the round. Every time I tried to get close I just was off today, I don't know what else to say. "If it happened to skip up, great, but make sure I keep it on the flag side ..."

"The day I don't feel pressure is the day I quit", Woods said. "Hopefully I can focus and have a good weekend", the 23-year-old Li said. Bryson DeChambeau, who shared the 18-hole lead with Koepka, went bogey-double bogey around the turn and shot 75.

He shot rounds of 75 and 73. However, a four-shot swing over the next two put Watson in charge and he ultimately triumphed with relative comfort.

Sales of juggling balls and meditation apps after Rory McIlroy's unusual preparation failed to get him into contention to complete the career grand slam.

Barely able to walk after throwing out his back bending over to kiss his daughter on the practice range on Thursday, the battling Australian somehow turned in a near flawless scorecard, with six birdies and a single bogey. He's 61 years old and under par for the tournament.
