Johnson now has 15 wins in his career, six of them dating to his first major at the U.S. maybe both of them, I think, just made a gap in the trees and made my ball go right through there.

After the play, he acknowledged the crowd at Chesapeake Energy Arena, which had stood in appreciation.

Kyle Edmund and Dan Evans both lost in straight sets to Lucas Pouille and Jeremy Chardy respectively, as France took a 2-0 lead in the best-of-five tie.

Javier Hernandez has reacted to comments from Jose Mourinho claiming he would've scored 20 goals for Manchester United this season.

The gulf between the top two teams and the rest of the field, however, remained significant.
Thompson was leading by three when was informed of a rule breach stemming from the way she replaced her ball on the 17th green during Saturday's third round. After receiving the email, LPGA Tour rules official and annoying brat who reminds the teacher that she forgot to assign homework Sue Witters leveled the penalty, one day later.
Jordan Spieth . Spieth, the 23-year-old Texan who shot 75 to open the Masters, including an ugly nine on the 15th hole, followed his 69 on Friday with a smooth 68 on Saturday to play himself to nearly the very top of the leaderboard.

"They have hard games coming up, though, so we have to keep winning and, hopefully, they get a bit stressed".
Following the truck attack in Stockholm , which killed 4 people and injured more than a dozen, a person was arrested in connection to it, who is believed to be a 39 year old man from Uzbekistan.

But Hughes, who now has Erik Pieters and Marc Muniesa at his disposal at left back, said this morning: "You look at all good players, but that's not one that's realistic for us, to be honest".
Coutinho's drilled finished levelled matters in the 70th minute and Firmino sealed the win two minutes later with a wonderful dipping strike over Lee Grant.

With Tottenham having narrowed the gap to four points with a 4-0 win at Watford , Chelsea's lead was cut to four points ahead of the late kick-off at the Vitality Stadium. Son, who had become the first South Korean to score 10 goals in a Premier League season, scored again after the break. There was nothing fortuitous about the second goal - a moment of pure class from Hazard.
In a share of 12th place, it was the first time since 2010 that he had failed to beat par in at least one of his first two rounds at Augusta National.

They wound up tied for the lead Saturday on a tense afternoon that set the stage for a Masters finale still up for grabs.
Florida State had 16 steals, and Slaughter also contributed 11 points and eight rebounds. Buoyed by the success of Pac-12 partner OR, the fourth-seed Bruins jumped out a 9-2 lead over UConn (35-0) before the Huskies scored 17 of the next 19 points.

Origi crouched an attempt wide after 54 minutes and Grant needed to save from Firmino and Coutinho as Liverpool pushed for an equaliser, before Lovren's header crashed contrary to the crossbar.

Firmino let fly using a fantastic volley that gave Lee Grant no chance and, although Simon Mignolet needed to refuse Saido Berahino his first Stoke goal , Klopp's guys held on to get a priceless success. And while Arsenal and United can potentially threaten their place in the top-four shake-up, points on the board at such a late stage of the season are a distinct advantage.
South Korean forward Son Heung-Min has excelled in Kane's absence but Pochettino insists that Kane remains the man to lead Tottenham's title charge. When I ask him and I say, 'Oh Harry, I don't know if you're ready or not, ' he says Harry, 'No, no, no I want to be involved.' I say 'no, you are not involved, your answer is wrong.' He says 'gaffer it's up to you, you're the manager, you decide.' Now, OK, yes if his answer is this, he is ready! Victor Wanyama will also be assessed ahead of the ...
On top of the domination, Westbrook tallied his 41st triple-double of the season, tying Oscar Robertson's triple-double total for the 1961-62 season.

Fitzpatrick, who finished seventh at the tournament a year ago, will play the first two rounds with former world No. 1 Jordan Spieth and two-time major champion Martin Kaymer.

McIlroy remembered a costly error of judgment on the 11th hole of his third round at Augusta past year when he drove the ball ...
Manager Mauricio Pochettino saluted "fantastic" Tottenham Hotspur's 4-0 rout of Watford as his title chasers increased the pressure on English Premier League leaders Chelsea .

However, Klopp believes Liverpool have shown they are capable of performing in the Senegal international's absence - pointing to the chances created without Mane in the 2-2 draw with Bournemouth. "All the injuries don't make life easier". The Potters have lost their last three league games and are yet to beat any of the sides in the top seven this season .
The Dutchman was lively and involved but he wasted a great chance to open the scoring after just 20 minutes. Moments later, he hit the crossbar.

Victor Wanyama may return after a back injury but Harry Kane and Danny Rose remain out.
France were also without several front-line players but were ultimately too good and will now face either Serbia or Spain in the semi-finals in September.
