      NORMAN, Okla. — Kinzie Hansen hit a dramatic, tying three-run home run in the seventh inning, Tiare Jennings led off the ninth inning with a solo blast and Oklahoma set an NCAA record with its 48-straight win on Saturday, a thrilling 8-7 decision over Clemson to win the Norman Super Regional.

        Padraig Harrington is in a tight duel with Steve Stricker going into the final round of the Senior PGA Championship. A double-bogey helped erase a five-shot lead for Harrington, who is one ahead of Stricker in what will be a matchup of opposing Ryder Cup captains from 2021. Harrington shot 68, while Stricker matched Harrington's tournament-low 64 from the opening round. Stewart Cink aced the 191-yard 13th hole and is three shots behind Harrington.

          Defending Formula One champion Max Verstappen produced a superb final lap to take pole position at the Monaco Grand Prix and deny Aston Martin veteran Fernando Alonso his first pole in 11 years. Verstappen called his first pole at Monaco "very lovely" but there was nothing to cheer for his Red Bull teammate Sergio Perez as last year's Monaco winner crashed early in qualifying. 

            Johnny Rutherford and Gordon Johncock will always be linked to the 1973 Indianapolis 500. Rutherford made the first of his three pole-winning runs that year. Johncock captured the first of his two Indy wins. What they remember most from that tragic month is how it was a catalyst for safety improvements across all forms of racing. Two drivers and a pit crew member died that month. Since then, steps to boost safety have been seen from the car to the track itself.

            By the time the match was over, the other athletes and their families had all left with their medals. But after nearly four hours of tug-of-war, Fain emerged with the trophy.

            FRISCO, Texas — Seth Waugh stood in front of students from Frisco ISD, the University of North Texas and kids invited through United Way, explaining why he believes golf has become cool. Waugh, the PGA of America’s CEO since 2018, is 65, but with his long silver hair and deep tan, he himself resonates California-beach cool, although he is Massachusetts born-and-raised. “We’ve gone from being ...

            Clint Castleberry had one glorious season at Georgia Tech. He was a whirlwind on both sides of the line, seeming to turn up everywhere. And then, he was gone. All that potential, snuffed out by the horrors of war. On this Memorial Day weekend, the largely forgotten exploits of Castleberry are a somber, painful reminder of what might've been if not for war. He finished third in the Heisman balloting as a freshman in 1942. Then he headed off to World War II, where he died while piloting a B-26 off the coast of Africa. He was just 21.

            Southeastern Conference leaders will continue debating what to do with their football schedule when they meet in the Florida Panhandle next week. The options: Play eight conference games with one annual rival or go to nine with three. Whether ESPN is willing to pay for extra conference games will factor into the decision, but how much? There is still no hard deadline to make a call on a format that goes into effect next year. Commissioner Greg Sankey told AP there is no guarantee a vote will even be taken next week.


            Two horses have died the past two days following injuries at Churchill Downs. They are the 11th and 12th fatalities over the past month at the home of the Kentucky Derby. Mare Kimberley Dream was euthanized after sustaining a distal sesamodean ligament rupture to her front leg during Saturday's first race. Lost in Limbo was euthanized following a similar injury just before the finish line in Friday's seventh race. A Kentucky steward's report from May 13 lists the previously unreported death of Bosque Redondo after finishing 10th in the seventh race from an unspecified injury.

            NASCAR drivers have long considered the Coca-Cola 600 the most grueling race on the schedule. It's expected to be even more challenging Sunday for Alex Bowman, who'll be racing for the first time since fracturing his vertebra last month at a sprint car race in Hendrick Motorsports' teammate Kyle Larson's new racing series in West Burlington, Iowa. Bowman said even twisting the wrong way can be painful. Bowman missed three Cup points races while sidelined, leaving him five points out of the 16th and final playoff qualifying position with 13 races remaining in the regular season. Cup points leader William Byron will start on the pole for Sunday's race after qualifying was rained out.

            Mito Pereira has a one-shot lead going into the final round of the LIV Golf event at Trump National DC. Pereira had five birdies over his last seven holes and shot 67. He leads by one shot over Harold Varner III. Varner opened with a 64 but he didn't make a birdie on the back nine Saturday and shot 72. Henrik Stenson and Kevin Na are tied for third.

            Alex Palou is the pole sitter and IndyCar points leader headed into the Indianapolis 500. The Spaniard is performing at a high level despite his rocky future. He is headed to McLaren Racing next season but currently is a Chip Ganassi Racing driver, so he's trying to balance the obligations of two teams. He's the favorite to win Sunday. Palou has the steely resolve to be able to shut out all the noise and win the race.
