WATCH: Stewart Cink “Cinks” impressive 94-foot putt

OK, so, this is crazy. Stewart Cink sank a 94-foot putt on the Georgia Tech basketball court to win $25,000 for a student.

Rickie Fowler taunted by fans over his ex-girlfriend

Were fans at the Waste Management Phoenix Open taunting Rickie Fowler with chants of “Team Alexis” on Saturday? It sure seems that was the case. When Fowler stepped to tee off on the 16th hole at TPC Scottsdale Saturday, he was met with chants of “Team Alexis" from the rowdy fans. Alexis is almost certainly a reference to model Alexis Randock, whom Fowler began dating in...
