Golf commentator Brandel Chamblee is not backing down from his insinuation that Tiger Woods cheated on the PGA Tour this season. In a recent column for Golf.com, Chamblee gave Woods an "F" for the 2013 season, writing that the world's top-ranked player was "a little cavalier with the rules" and that "ethics matter more than athletics. " Woods' agent, Mark Steinberg, quickly fired back with threats of legal action. "There is nothing you can call a golfer worse than a cheater," Steinberg told ESPN.com.

Most of the sales pitches being made for the new national healthcare plan have been along the lines of California's earnest effort, using pictures of cherubic children in toy cars with taglines like ”Preexisting conditions won't stop your kids anymore.” Not so everywhere.

Rose pulled his approach and had to settle for par. Rose, who opened with a 67, had a 69 in the 36-hole exhibition for the four major champions of the year.

This is something you don't see two-time major winners do very often. John Daly was at a Nashville pizza parlor over the weekend when, apparently on a dare, he hit a golf ball that was on top of a tee held in a fan's mouth. Now, I'm thinking that given Daly's history of drinking, letting him swing a driver at full speed toward my head is not the best course of action, but Daly was successful and it appears everyone enjoyed themselves. But what happened to the golf ball?
