    (CNN)It looks like Masters champion Scottie Scheffler will miss the cut at the 2022 PGA Championship after a stuttering performance.Coming off a disappointing opening round Thursday -- which included a rare show of frustration from the usually unflappable Scheffler -- the world No. 1 entered Friday's second round one over par, six shots behind leader Rory McIlroy.And with the aim surely to climb back up the leaderboard, Scheffler showed some of his trademark grit and grind, clearly not playing his best but managing to eke out nine pars in a row on his first nine holes at Southern Hills Country Club in Tulsa, Oklahoma.However, it was on the back nine when things started to go pear-shaped for arguably the most in-form golfer in the world. Scheffler reacts after hitting his bunker shot on the 13th hole during the second round of the 2022 PGA Championship.Consecutive bogeys on the first and second holes -- his 10th and 11th -- meant the 25-year-old was always playing catch-up; but it only got worse from there.Read MoreA birdie on his 13th gave Scheffler some...
    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — For years, Marcel Hofker dreamed of attending college and playing the sport he loved. The married father and business owner grew up in St. Paul, with hockey providing connection, structure and community. “I grew up in the suburbs as a Black and white person, you know, a mixed person, and instantly discovered I was different,” Hofker said. “I went by Marc because Marcel was too different. But hockey is what people do in North St. Paul, what people did in North St. Paul. So I played hockey and I loved hockey. It made me on equal footing with everybody else for that hour or two hours.” READ MORE: Memorial Service For Walter Mondale To Be Held In Minneapolis SundayHofker said his passion for hockey continued to grow, ultimately playing for Mahtomedi during his sophomore year of high school. An injury would later turn his college dream upside down. “I missed my junior year. That’s when I discovered marijuana, painkillers, because they gave me a bunch of those,” Hofker said of his medical care. “I lost the structure...
    ARSENAL target Omar Marmoush has revealed he dreams of playing at the Emirates ahead of a possible summer switch from Wolfsburg. The Gunners - as well as rivals Tottenham - are claimed to be keeping tabs on the 23-year-old following his impressive season on loan at Stuttgart. 1Omar Marmoush has impressed on loan at Stuttgart from Wolfsburg this seasonCredit: Getty The Egyptian winger has been one of Stuttgart's only shining lights this campaign with the club in danger of being relegated from the Bundesliga. He has chipped in with three goals and four assists in 20 German top-flight outings. Marmoush is due back at Wolfsburg in the summer, but will have just a year left on his contract. And the 11-cap international has dropped a subtle come-and-get-me plea to Arsenal, along with another Premier League side.

    BELGRADE, Serbia (AP) — Top-ranked Novak Djokovic dug deep for the second match in a row to reach the semifinals of the Serbia Open with a 4-6, 6-3, 6-3 win over Miomir Kecmanovic on Thursday. Kecmanovic won the opening set without facing a break point, but Djokovic finally showed signs of getting back to his best in the second and then won the final four games of the decider in what was just his sixth match of the year. The 20-time Grand Slam champion stretched his winning streak against compatriots to 10 matches going back to a loss to Janko Tipsarevic in Madrid in 2012. Djokovic next plays third-seeded Karen Khachanov, who defeated Brazilian qualifier Thiago Monteiro 7-5, 6-4. Djokovic also endured a tough game Wednesday when he rallied from a set down to beat compatriot Laslo Djere 2-6, 7-6 (6), 7-6 (4). He joked that he’s happy he would not have to face another Serb in the semifinals. Djokovic opened his clay-court season with a surprising loss to Alejandro Davidovich Fokina at the Monte Carlo Masters last week, his...
    BELGRADE, Serbia (AP) — Novak Djokovic rallied from a set down to beat compatriot Laslo Djere 2-6, 7-6 (6), 7-6 (4) in the second round of the Serbia Open on Wednesday in a match that lasted almost 3 1/2 hours. The top-ranked Serb struggled to find his rhythm in what was just his fifth match of the year and the 50th-ranked Djere created break-point opportunities in all four of Djokovic’s service games in the opening set. Djokovic improved in the second and recovered from missing three set points in the 12th game to win the tiebreaker. Djere had a chance to go 5-3 up in the third set before Djokovic broke back for 4-4, and the 20-time Grand Slam champion then won the last four points of the decisive tiebreaker. Djokovic was coming off rare back-to-back defeats after opening his clay-court season with a surprising loss to Alejandro Davidovich Fokina at the Monte Carlo Masters last week, his first match since being eliminated in the quarterfinals of the Dubai Tennis Championships in February. Dubai was his first tournament of...
    Former President Barack Obama’s Tuesday visit to the White House was turned against President Joe Biden as critics played misleading clips of him at the reception to claim he doesn’t know where he is. First, the Republican National Committee posted two misleading clips of the reception that quickly went viral – one eventually made it to Fox News prime time. The first clip shows an apparently confused Biden wandering around and looking confused, while the second shows Biden standing on the outside of a group of people as Obama is treated like a rock star. Both clips are taken out of context and omit key seconds that completely change their content. In the first Biden is actually looking for someone he wishes to bring on stage. In the full clip, Biden can be seen looking around and then finding the person he was apparently searching for – who appears to be Interior Secretary Deb Haaland although her face is somewhat obscured. Biden then brings her onstage to applause, the RNC clip ends right before Biden finds her. The second clip...
    CHICAGO (AP) — When Ochai Agbaji and Kansas are rolling, they can pile up points in a hurry. In case that doesn’t happen in the Sweet 16 against Providence, the Jayhawks think they have another way to advance. “It’s easier to make a team play bad than it is to go out make shots every game,” Kansas guard Christian Braun said Thursday. The NCAA Tournament returns to Chicago this weekend, and the Midwest Region semifinals feature four teams that know a little something about defense. The top-seeded Jayhawks take on Nate Watson and the Friars on Friday night, followed by Iowa State and Miami in a matchup of double-digit seeds. The Cyclones lead the Sweet 16 in scoring defense (51.5 points per game), field-goal percentage defense (33.3%), steals (24) and turnovers forced (36), according to Sportradar. The focus on defense under first-year coach T.J. Otzelberger has powered the Big 12 school to the second weekend of the NCAA tourney after it won just two games last season. “We know they’re real scrappy,” Miami guard Kameron McGusty said. “They’ve got good...
    TOTTENHAM have already been part of one fly-on-the-wall documentary - now loan star Dejan Kulusevski is starring in another with girlfriend and fellow footballer Eldina Ahmic. Playmakers, now in its fifth series, is a show put together by Sweden’s TV4 network that follows five Swedish athletes and their partners, also including Aston Villa goalkeeper Robin Olsen. 3Dejan Kulusevski and partner Eldina Ahmic are stars in a Swedish documentaryCredit: Instagram @eldinaahmic 3Kulusevski's move to Tottenham and the couple's new life in London is documented in the showCredit: Instagram @eldinaahmic 3Ahmic plays as a midfielder for Swedish club IF BrommapojkarnaCredit: Instagram @eldinaahmic The first episode, which went out online on Thursday, featured a short film of Ahmic introducing herself and Kulusevksi and of them walking their dog while they were still living in Turin. Kulusevski, on loan at Spurs from Juventus, said: “It’s just something very small. It’s not even on television, it’s on an app on the internet. “The show is actually more about her and what she is doing, and how it is to live in cities like Turin and...
    Louisville moved past its painful collapse in the conference tournament to dominate its NCAA Tournament opener, and aim to keep that going against a ninth-seeded Gonzaga squad determined to pull off an upset. Top-seeded Louisville (26-4) hosts the Bulldogs in Sunday’s second-round game in seeking its 11th Sweet 16 appearance in 15 years under coach Jeff Walz and fifth in six seasons (the 2020 tournament was cancelled because of COVID-19). As common as that has become for this successful program, nobody’s taking things for granted — Gonzaga (27-6) is a challenging team that has won six in a row. But Cardinals like senior Emily Engstler yearn to get to the Sweet 16 for the first time. “Just to even go past the second round for me is something special, especially to do it with this team,” said Engstler, who transferred from Syracuse last summer. “I’m just really excited to be playing with them and Gonzaga is a really good team. I think we just have to lock in the next few days and we’ll be alright.” The Cardinals...
    INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Tennessee arrived in Indianapolis with a single focus and little interest in continuing the seeding debate. Of course the Volunteers want to show the NCAA selection committee the Southeastern Conference tourney champs warrant a higher seed than No. 3 in the South Region. Yet, players had a steely-eyed vision on a new mission when they arrived Wednesday — winning a first-round game for the third time in five years and reaching a Final Four for first time in school history. “It was good to see us set a goal to win the SEC Tournament and achieve that goal, but we also had a goal at the beginning of the year to win games in March, to get to the Final Four and win a national championship,” Josiah-Jordan James said. “It starts with Longwood.” The 14th-seeded Lancers (26-6), from the small town of Farmville, Virginia, are making their first tourney appearance. Thursday’s winner faces either sixth-seeded Colorado State (25-5) or 11th-seeded Michigan (17-14), which play in the day’s first game. Still, the orange-and-white clad fans who made the...
    PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. (AP) — Erik Compton is going to have a great Saturday. If he makes the cut at the Honda Classic, he’ll be playing a third round at PGA National. If not, he’ll merely have to settle for the 30th anniversary of getting a second chance at life. The date was Feb. 26, 1992, when Compton — then 12 — got the first of what has become two heart transplants, needed after he was diagnosed with viral cardiomyopathy, a condition where the heart becomes inflamed and cannot effectively pump blood. He has battled and battled and battled since, and an opening round of 1-under 69 at the Honda Classic on Thursday was yet another reminder that he’s made a career out of defying absurdly long odds. “I’ve got more pressure experience in my life in the field combined,” Compton said. Those words weren’t hyperbole, and certainly don’t just apply to him playing golf. He likes to say he’s been dead, twice. He drove himself to a hospital after having a heart attack in 2007, seven months before...

    MADRID (AP) — Atlético Madrid squandered a good chance to move closer to the top of the Spanish league, losing 1-0 to last-place Levante at home on Wednesday. Gonzalo Melero scored on a breakaway early in the second half to give Levante its second win in 24 league matches. The stunning loss kept Atlético from regaining the final Champions League qualification spot. The defending champions stayed fifth, tied on points with fourth-place Barcelona, which has a game in hand. The match was postponed from the 21st round last month. Atlético couldn’t play then because it faced Real Sociedad in the round of 16 of the Copa del Rey in a match postponed because of Atlético’s participation in the Spanish Super Cup in Saudi Arabia. Atlético had won three of its last five leagues matches after enduring a four-game losing streak in the competition. “We are not giving our best and it’s impossible to win like this,” Atlético goalkeeper Jan Oblak said. “We are going through a very difficult moment and we have to improve in every aspect. We are...
    LUKE SHAW was slammed by Manchester United fans after playing a goalscorer onside for the second time in five days. The left-back, 26, failed to get up level with the rest of his defenders at Old Trafford just after half-time today. 2Luke Shaw came under criticism in the build-up to the Southampton equaliser 2Che Adams scores the equaliser at Old Trafford three minutes into the second halfCredit: AFP Ché Adams levels it up for the Saints! ????Southampton have had some great chances in this game, and they finally score ⚽️A well-taken finish from the forward ???? pic.twitter.com/U1BLs77Vg0— Football on BT Sport (@btsportfootball) February 12, 2022 And that allowed Che Adams to get in behind and equalise for Southampton three minutes into the second half with a neat finish off the post.

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Deandre Ayton had 20 points and 16 rebounds in an efficient 24 minutes and the NBA-leading Phoenix Suns rebounded from a streak-ending loss to beat the short-handed Washington Wizards 95-80 on Saturday night. Ayton, playing his third game since returning from a sprained right ankle, and the Suns bounced back from a loss Thursday night at Atlanta that ended their 11-game winning streak. READ MORE: Harford County Deputies Are Searching For 64-Year-Old WomanPhoenix led by 25 before the midpoint of the second quarter, 27 at half and 36 in the third quarter. The Wizards set offensive season lows — and the Suns defensive bests — for points in a quarter (11 in the second), half (33 in the first) and game. Chris Paul added 14 points and nine assists for Phoenix, Cameron Johnson and Mikal Bridges each scored 12 points, and Devin Booker had 11. At 42-10, the Suns moved 2 1/2 games ahead of Golden State for the league lead. Montrezl Harrell scored 15 points for Washington, and Aaron Holiday had 11. The Wizards have lost...
    BEIJING (AP) — Immediately after one of Finland’s most lopsided losses in international women’s hockey history, general manager Tuula Puputti marveled with envy at the depth of talent Canada has assembled. She began by referencing Canada’s top line centered by captain Marie-Philip Poulin, who has drawn comparisons to Sidney Crosby for scoring two gold-medal clinching goals. Then there’s a second line anchored by Sarah Fillier, the 21-year-old Princeton captain, who already has scored four times in her Olympic debut. Puputti, however, didn’t stop there. “Who wouldn’t want to have their third and fourth lines on their teams as well?” the former goalie said, incredulously. “It’s plenty to choose.” Plenty harder to contain. Whatever faint hope there was of the rest of the world closing the gap on the Canadian and U.S. women’s hockey teams is quickly being dashed three days into the Beijing Games. Canada outclassed its first two Group A opponents with a pair of 11-1 victories, beginning with Switzerland on Thursday and the Finns on Saturday. And Finland, the defending Olympic and world championship bronze medalist, hardly fared...
    David Quinn walked into Boston University coach Jack Parker’s office in the summer of 1987 and got news that destroyed his Olympic dream. Quinn learned he was a hemophiliac and was told his hockey-playing career was over. “It was a big blow,” said Quinn, now 55. “It was devastating in a lot of ways, life-altering. People have put up with a lot worse than I have in life, that’s for sure, but at 20 years old still a tough pill to swallow.” More than three decades since the rare blood disorder kept him from playing at the 1988 Games in Calgary, Quinn is getting a second Olympic opportunity as the U.S. coach in Beijing. It’s also a chance of another kind for Quinn to get back into coaching after being fired last summer by the New York Rangers following three seasons dedicated to a rebuild. “I really think Quinny can be a great coach in the NHL,” said veteran defenseman Brendan Smith, who played for him for three years in New York. “The situation he was put in was...
    SANTA CLARA — Day 4 of ThumbWatch showed no sign of Jimmy Garoppolo on the practice field, casting further doubt on if he’ll start in the 49ers’ home finale Sunday against the Houston Texans. Garoppolo did not practice Monday, and after planning to test out his sprained right thumb Wednesday, he skipped the ensuing practice. All of which sets the stage for rookie Trey Lance to make his second career start, and do so with a chance to clinch a wild-card playoff berth, so long as the 49ers (8-7) beat the Texans (4-11) after the New Orleans Saints (7-8) lose at the Carolina Panthers (5-10). Garoppolo sounded game Wednesday to give it a go, sore thumb and all, just as he did in playing through all of last Thursday night’s loss at Tennessee, where he got injured on a second-quarter sack. His ulnar collateral ligament was torn, and a fleck of bone came off in the process, coach Kyle Shanahan explained Wednesday.

    MONTREAL (AP) — Jonathan Drouin was the only scorer in the shootout, and the Montreal Canadiens beat the Philadelphia Flyers 3-2 on Thursday night in a mostly empty Bell Centre because of the rise of COVID-19 cases. Quebec public health officials asked the Canadiens to play without fans in their home arena earlier Thursday to help slow the spread of the virus. The Canadiens agreed to the provincial government’s request, making the game the first at Bell Centre without spectators since Game 4 of the 2021 North Division semifinal against the Toronto Maple Leafs on May 25. Artturi Lehkonen and Laurent Dauphin scored in regulation for Montreal. Cayden Primeau, son of former Philadelphia player Keith Primeau, allowed two goals on 38 shots. He saved every shootout attempt. Max Willman and Jackson Cates scored for the Flyers. Carter Hart stopped 38 of 40 shots. LIGHTNING 2, SENATORS 1 TAMPA, Fla.
