Tiger Woods won't be at the Ryder Cup in Rome but he's already proven he can be a valuable

NEW The last time Team USA attempted to break its drought on European soil, Tiger Woods was leading the mission.  Fast forward five years and his appearance in Paris in 2018 seems very likely to have been his last. As a player at least.  The 47-year-old will not be playing at Marco Simone for Zach Johnson. He won't be a vice captain. He won't even be there. But his presence will still be felt.  Woods, a man who bleeds red, white and blue, has 15 majors to his name and a treasure trove of Ryder Cup experience, is someone any American would want in their corner.

Smith claiming he was 'pushed out'.

Aaron Judge becomes first Yankees player EVER to hit three home runs twice in a single

Aaron Judge has etched his name into the New York Yankees history books by becoming the first ever player to hit three home runs twice in a single season.Judge was at his brilliant best as the Yankees sealed a 7-1 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Friday night, first hitting a three-run homer in the third inning and then a two-run shot in the fifth off rookie starter Brandon Pfaadt. It was in the seventh when New York's star slugger made history, adding his record third homer of the night by reaching the second deck in right field with a solo drive off Slade Cecconi.

Aaron Rodgers insists that he's 'not drinking any p***' as he recovers from an Achilles tear... adding that his reported use of the sounds of dolphins mating to recover 'was a joke'

New York Jets quarterback Aaron Rodgers appeared on The Pat McAfee Show to address the biggest rumors facing his recovery: No, he does not drink his own urine. Speaking to McAfee and his former Green Bay Packers teammate AJ Hawk on the show being broadcast on ESPN, Rodgers - a practitioner of alternative medicine - said he doesn't indulge in any of his own bodily fluids as he recovers from a season-ending Achilles injury. Hawk seemed slightly surprised by the revelation saying that he believed the quarterback took part in such practices while he was in Green Bay.

Losing to Bayern Munich is one thing but lose at Burnley and this gets messy! Erik ten

CHRIS WHEELER: The Champions League loss to Bayern Munich in midweek followed defeats to Brighton and Arsenal. Spurs's win over United at the Tottenham Stadium last month makes it four defeats in the first six games. Let's be clear: Ten Hag has not entered basket-case territory yet. Not even close. The Dutchman is displaying the same coolness he did when navigating United through a torrid start to last season before he secured a third-place finish and won the Carabao Cup. But the first small cracks have started to appear in the calm exterior. Ten Hag's assessment of the defeats to Arsenal and Spurs were detached from the mainstream view. A man who spoke yesterday about not looking for excuses bemoaned United's luck at not being awarded penalties in both games.

Folarin Balogun misses TWO penalties as the USMNT striker suffers a nightmare full debut for new club Monaco... with his double blunder proving costly in a late 1-0 defeat by Nice

As far as nightmare debuts go, not many will trump Folarin Balogun's disastrous first start for new club Monaco. The USMNT striker got his Monaco career fully up and running on Friday after completing a $26million move from Arsenal last month, and there was plenty of expectation following his impressive loan spell with fellow French team Reims last season. Yet unfortunately for both Balogun and his new employers, his eagerly-awaited debut did not go to plan.

Scott was discussing the news about Diggs with Stephen A. Smith and Ryan Clark on Friday's First Take, especially on how it may dent the Cowboy's Super Bowl hopes after two impressive wins to start the season. 'This is a major, major blow for Dallas and like Stephen. A always says "Just wait, something bad always happens",' Scott said, referring to Smith's cynicism of the Cowboys in previous seasons.

Will the NFL ever have to segregate fans? Another violent incident with fans brawling mars 49ers' win vs New York Giants at the start of Week 3

Three weeks into the NFL season and the league has already received an alarming wakeup call. One that surely cannot be left ignored.  The 2023 season has made headlines for all the wrong reasons with backlash to turf and concerns over player safety in the wake of season-ending injuries for Aaron Rodgers and Nick Chubb.  But the most damning have come in the form of the rise of fan-related incidents, raising the unavoidable question; Is it time for the NFL to consider fan segregation?

US Ryder Cup team breakdown: The only LIV Golf rebel, three of 2023's four major

History has stacked the deck against the United States of America going into the 2023 Ryder Cup in Rome. An away team hasn't won the Ryder Cup since the 2012 'Miracle at Medinah'. The Americans haven't won in Europe since their two-point win at The Belfry in 1993. If there was any time for the US to change that - it would be right now, after a year where three Americans claimed major championship victories. The team assembled by captain Zach Johnson is capable of turning the tide - as none of the American group sits outside the OWGR top-25 and the team boasts a combined ten PGA Tour wins. With some of the best players golf has to offer, Mail Sport takes a closer look at the team the Americans have put together to defend their Ryder Cup title.

GRAEME SOUNESS: David Raya vs Aaron Ramsdale is great for Arsenal but I'm not having Kai

GRAEME SOUNESS: Arsenal have carried a very heavy piece of baggage into this season. The knowledge that they lost their nerve last spring. I'm sorry, but you can't dress up what happened to their last Premier League campaign any other way. They were in the box seat heading into the home stretch of the season and they didn't perform. That little seed in their heads will be there until they win that competition. But I like the Arsenal squad I see - and although it doesn't always follow that they will get better year on year, they're a group of young men who should do exactly that. We'll have a far better picture about Arsenal and Tottenham by 5pm on Sunday. The intensity of a huge north London derby and two teams playing with great confidence adds up to the first proper test that either of the clubs have faced this season. They've each played only one team in the top 10, so far - and given Manchester United's early season form, we really can't read too much into the fact that both teams have beaten them.

In 1993, Alex Rodriguez was selected first overall in the MLB Draft, kickstarting a Hall of Fame-caliber career that spanned more than two decades and produced countless memorable moments on the big stage. But while Rodriguez smashed 696 home runs, was a three-time MVP and 14-time All-Star, many remember him best as a drug cheat. That reputation resurfaced last week when ESPN reported that in 2014, Rodriguez met with two assistant US Department of Justice attorneys and seven Drug Enforcement Administration agents and handed over the names of three fellow players.

LASK 1-3 Liverpool: Mo Salah, Luis Diaz, and Darwin Nunez score as Reds mount ANOTHER

LASK 1-3 LIVERPOOL - LEWIS STEELE AT THE RAIFFEISEN ARENA, LINZ: Jurgen Klopp said Liverpool were in the Europa League to 'compete and not give out opportunities' when asked this week if the competition was a chance to bleed in youngsters and fringe players. For much of this match, the opposite was the case. The Reds handed out lots of opportunities by making 11 changes to the side who beat Wolves last weekend. And they did not compete at all in the first half. Austrian side LASK were stronger, well drilled off the ball and capitalised on Liverpool's many weaknesses. But Klopp's men continued their Jekyll and Hyde theme of the season, by winning a game after going 1-0 down for the fourth time in the last five matches. After falling behind to a superb strike, two second-half goals in seven minutes put Liverpool into the driving seat.
