Jason Bohn of the US tees off during the FedEx St. Jude Classic, in Memphis, Tennessee, on June 11, 2015American Jason Bohn fired a nine-under 61 for the co-lead after the third round of The Greenbrier Classic while Tiger Woods is trying to hang in with a crowded leaderboard. Woods, who is coming off a dismal performance at the US Open last month, on Saturday shot one-over 71 as he played the back nine in plus-two at the $6.7 million PGA Tour event. The 42-year-old Bohn was at 11-under 199 after 54 holes with three others -- Bryce Molder (67), Park Sung-Joon and Sean O'Hair, who both shot 66.

Nick Kyrgios can win Wimbledon, warns Newcombe | Tennis

  • Former Wimbledon star John Newcombe backs Kyrgios to go all the way
  • Newcombe says we’ve only seen tip of the iceberg with respect to Australian

John Newcombe says it’d be crazy to write off Nick Kyrgios as the big-stage showman resumes his audacious bid to become Wimbledon’s youngest men’s champion in almost 30 years.

“It’s a big reach, but his rise has been so meteoric so far that he doesn’t know - and we don’t know - where his limits are at the moment,” Newcombe said ahead of Kyrgios’s fourth-round showdown with Richard Gasquet on Monday.

Jeff Locke Salutes America

For all the crap we’ve given Jeff Locke throughout the year, you’ve gotta give him major props for not only throwing an eight inning shutout masterpiece on Saturday, but also for doing it in record time (the game barely cracked two hours) – giving everyone more time to enjoy the holiday on a beautiful afternoon/evening. Sure, a quiet day from the Pirate offense helped out with that too, but a Josh Harrison double and Neil Walker single was enough.

Locke’s always going to be what he is – a marginal-ish fifth starter – but today’s gem (arguably his best career start – and it probably would have been a complete game shutout if his spot hadn’t been due to lead off the ninth inning of a one-run game) gives his numbers a nice boost well into respectable territory. He has outings like this in him once in a while, and more often than not he at least gives the Bucs a chance. With a great top three and an okay fourth guy, that’s perfectly fine in a rotation. If the Pirates are going to make an upgrade in the next couple of weeks, it’s probably going to be to the offense and/or maybe the bullpen, not their fifth starter.
