Facing an uphill, 25-foot putt for birdie on the 14th hole at Sherwood Country Club, Zach Johnson struck the ball hard, "too hard," he said. No matter. The ball went into the cup instead of sailing by, helping Johnson to a five-under-par 67 and the first-round lead Thursday in the Northwestern Mutual World Challenge. Matt Kuchar finished one shot behind Johnson, and Hunter Mahan and Bubba Watson were three shots behind with two-under 70s in the tournament that benefits Tiger Woods' charities.

Zach Johnson shot a five-under-par 67 to seize the first-round lead Thursday in Tiger Woods' charity golf tournament at Sherwood Country Club in Thousand Oaks. Matt Kuchar finished one shot behind Johnson in the Northwestern Mutual World Challenge. Hunter Mahan and Bubba Watson were three shots back after shooting two-under 70s. Woods -- a five-time winner of the event -- also looked poised to shoot 70 when he came to the 18th green with a three-foot putt for birdie. But he missed the putt and settled for a one-under 71. Johnson, who finished second in the World Challenge in 2007 and 2011, had seven birdies and two bogeys in Thursday's round.

It's the photo every girl dreams of: the beautiful white dress, the handsome husband - and Zach Braff. OK, so a bride who got some wedding photos taken in New York City probably didn't dream about that last part, but now she definitely has a wedding photo to remember after the actor photo-bombed her and her husband on 42nd Street. As the photographer Sascha Reinking tells it, he was taking pictures of Verena and Michael, a couple from Germany who had already gotten married but wanted to take wedding photos while on vacation in New York, on the first weekend of November.

These are the games where all heads normally turn to Kobe Bryant. Regardless of title - opponent, teammate, fan or hater - everyone in attendance anticipates Bryant's time in the crunch for the Lakers, successful or not.

GAME SUMMARY: Grizzlies 89, Lakers 86 Zach Randolph was the man on the spot and he delivered with several late plays to push Memphis to an 89-86 victory.

Seems passing on that chance to be an LSU quarterback might have been a wise decision for right-hander Zach Lee. On Friday the Dodgers named Lee as their Minor League Pitcher of the Year. Scott Schebler, an outfielder who hit 27 home runs for Class-A Rancho Cucamonga, was named the Minor League Player of the Year. Lee was a first-round draft pick in 2010 who had fallen to 28 th overall because he had enrolled at LSU to play quarterback. Most figured he could not be signed . In his third season in the minors, Lee went 10-10 with a 3.22 ERA at double-A Chattanooga.

The peace I had out there …" The Iowa native felt the love all day from the 10,000-plus fans who endured muddy conditions to witness the Monday finish. "I'm not from Chicago," Johnson said, "but I feel local.

Zach Hodskins, whose left arm ends at his elbow and who became a YouTube sensation after a video was posted of him playing basketball, has been offered a spot as a walk-on at the University of Florida by Coach Billy Donovan. Hodskins has played high school and AAU ball over the last few years. He hasn't decided yet whether to accept the offer, which would guarantee Hodskins a place on the team, but he won't get a scholarship. Before you cry out "gimmick for publicity," watch the video of Hodskins playing.
