In what is cited as a medical first, surgeons in Sacramento have used a specially designed robot to help them perform a hip replacement surgery.

Tiger Woods has missed the cut in the Abu Dhabi Championship after he was penalized two strokes for moving his ball from vines. He'll join top-ranked Rory McIlroy on the sidelines this weekend -- the first time that both have missed a cut in the 41 tournaments they've played together -- because of the blunder. It happened at the fifth hole Friday when his drive sailed to the right of the fairway and landed in a thicket of vines. Woods called playing partner Martin Kaymer over to see if he could get relief, and Kaymer agreed the ball had become embedded in the vines.

Writers from around the Tribune Co. offer their predictions on whether the San Antonio Spurs can defeat the defending champion Miami Heat in the NBA Finals. Please join the conversation by voting in the poll and leaving a comment of your own. Ben Bolch, Los Angeles Times Yes. The Spurs are a more complete, cohesive and consistent team. They don't sell as many jerseys or generate as many Twitter followers (in social media holdout Tim Duncan's case, zero). The Spurs just win while sending opponents to the loony bin with their methodical playmaking.
