The two tennis stars even had their picture taken with the Eastern Conference Finals trophy and Heat center Greg Oden:Breakups are tough, especially when you’re famous (not that I would know), so it’s nice to see that Caroline has gotten herself back on track and that she’s out there enjoying life.Related Link: Did Caroline Curse Rory?In Case You Missed ItMark Cuban Provides Perspective on Phil Mickelson SituationDallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban was hit with a civil lawsuit in 2008 from the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, which accused him of insider trading. He was eventually cleared, but not before he felt his reputation was dragged through the mud.So not surprisingly, Cuban is paying attention to the situation surrounding Phil Mickelson. Read MoreJason Dufner’s Acting is Pretty BaaaaadThe 2014 PGA Championship has yet to be played, but that isn’t stopping Jason Dufner from planning for the final major of 2015.
