July 28, 2016Olympics- Russian athletes affected by Rio bans (Reuters)

Following the International Olympic Committee's (IOC) decision on Sunday not to issue a blanket ban on Russian athletes despite evidence of systematic doping across the majority of Olympic sports, global sporting federations have been left to decide which Russians can compete at next month's Rio Games. The IOC said any Russian athletes with a previous doping suspension will be ineligible to compete at the Olympics. AQUATICS (SWIMMING, DIVING, SYNCHRONISED SWIMMING AND WATERPOLO) - Yulia Efimova, Mikhail Dovgalyuk, Natalia Lovtcova, Anastasia Krapivina, Nikita Lobintsev, Vladimir Morozov and Daria Ustinova are seven Russian swimmers banned by the governing body FINA from competing at Rio.

Lockers are in alphabetical order, and it doesn't matter if they give lessons or make millions in PGA Tour earnings. Club pros will have the same tee times as tour players when the PGA Championship starts Thursday. ''When I go back next week to work I'll be a club pro again, but this week I'm out here playing these guys and that's how you have to look at it,'' Ryan Helminen, a club pro at Ridgeway Country Club in Neenah, Wisconsin said.


July 27, 2016Olympics-Golf-Kiwi Ko the woman to beat at Rio Games (Reuters)

By Liana B. Baker SAN FRANCISCO, July 28 (Reuters) - Red-hot New Zealander Lydia Ko is a force whenever she tees it up in a tournament but the world number one is far from a shoo-in for gold in women's golf in Rio where, unlike on the men's side, the top players will be competing. Ko has won two major championships on the LPGA Tour in the last 12 months and finished no worse than a tie for third in the other three, a remarkable level of consistency that suggests she will be on the medal podium. South Korea will have the biggest representation of all competing nations with four players ranked inside the top nine, but the vagaries of golf and the depth of international talent in the women's game make confident predictions difficult.

By Larry Fine SPRINGFIELD, New Jersey (Reuters) - Ryder Cup captains Davis Love III and Darren Clarke are both looking for balance on their respective teams as they move closer to assembling their squads for the matches at Hazeltine. The Ryder Cup match play competition will be held Sept. 30-Oct. 2 in Minnesota, with Europe dominating of late with eight wins from the last 10 biennial matches. "In our automatic qualifying positions right now we have five rookies in there, with one of them being the Masters champion," Northern Irishman Clarke told reporters at Baltusrol on the eve of Thursday's opening round of the PGA Championship.

SPRINGFIELD, N.J. (AP) -- Facts and figures for the 98th PGA Championship, which starts Thursday:

Lydia Ko and Brooke Henderson got timely breaks before the Ricoh Women's British Open. Ko and Henderson were both off last week while many top players competed in the UL International Crown team matches in Illinois. The 19-year-old Ko visited France for a promotional event for her upcoming title defense in The Evian Championship and took some tourist time in London before arriving at Woburn Golf Club.


July 27, 2016Clean-shaven Johnson goes for No. 1 at PGA (The Associated Press)

Dustin Johnson apparently had high expectations after winning his first major at the U.S. Open. While his back-to-back victories at the U.S. Open and the World Golf Championship at Firestone rightly get most of the attention, it's easy to overlook that he has been playing better than anyone all year. With a tie for second last week at the Canadian Open, the 32-year-old Johnson arrived at Baltusrol with a mathematical chance to replace Jason Day at No. 1 in the world.
