Who Is the Oldest Player to Win a PGA Tour Event?

One of the many beautiful things about being a professional golfer is the ability to have a longer career than most other athletes. Let’s face it. With a few notable exceptions, there aren’t many MLB, NFL, or NBA players that have careers that span more than two decades or play into their mid-to-late 40s. But that’s certainly not an uncommon thing on the PGA Tour, is it? Just look at 50-year-old Phil Mickelson. Sure, he plays a few events on the PGA Tour Champions these days but he still gets out there and tees it up with the less-than-50 crowd on the regular tour on a consistent basis. And it’s not as if the older guys can’t win on the PGA Tour or even win major championships. Jack Nicklaus won his sixth and final Masters at age 46 and Tiger Woods won his 15th major at the age of 43.

“Defund and abolish” anti-police graffiti, as well as references to a 13-year-old Chicago boy who was shot and killed by police in late March, showed up in Denver’s Capitol Hill neighborhood over the weekend. An anarchy symbol also was spray-painted on a plaque at the governor’s mansion. Reports of graffiti started coming into the Denver Police Department on Sunday morning, and by the afternoon, Denver Police technician Tyrone Campbell said authorities knew of four locations, adding there may be more reports as people leave for work or return to offices on Monday. Campbell said it wasn’t clear whether the graffiti was related to Saturday’s protests, which he noted spurred no arrests and no citations. One was held midday in downtown Denver and the other was at night in Cheesman Park. Tynin

Michael Jordan Is Considered the NBA GOAT, but He Was Only the Highest-Paid Player in the League for 2 of his 15 Seasons

Michael Jordan speaks to reporters after winning the 1998 NBA Finals with the Chicago Bulls | MIKE NELSON/AFP via Getty ImagesRELATED: The best player in any particular sport is more often than not the highest-paid player in their respective league. Mike Trout. Steph Curry. Patrick Mahomes. It just makes sense that the most important player is rightly compensated for their dominance, but that wasn’t the case for Michael Jordan during his NBA career. Jordan is one of the most underpaid athletes to ever compete in professional sports. Even though he was the undisputed best basketball player in the world throughout the 1990s, Jordan was only the highest-paid player in the NBA twice over his 15 seasons in the league. Wait, what? Michael Jordan earned $93.7 million in the NBA Mich

Who’s next for GOP? White House hopefuls move forward as Trump considers run

Markieff Morris has been ‘unsung hero’ as Lakers battle without injured stars

No less a basketball pundit than ESPN’s Zach Lowe offered a mea culpa on Friday in his weekly column of ten NBA observations. The sentiment could not have been more direct. “Boy was I wrong about Markieff Morris”. For those paying attention during the Lakers’ 7-8 stretch with neither LeBron James or Anthony Davis, it’s been clear that Morris has been one of the most consistent, most steadying presences on the team on both ends. In the last 15 games, he’s been the team’s fifth-leading scorer (11.8 ppg), the third-best rebounder (6.5 rpg) and a steady spacing big (37.7 % from 3-point range). Coach Frank Vogel recently said Morris is not being talked about enough: “He’s been like the unsung hero of this stretch.” To which Morris himself says: Well, of course. What did you expect? “I mean, (ex
