Here’s where all 30 players will start the Tour Championship at East Lake

Jon Rahm got the better of Dustin Johnson on Sunday at Olympia Fields, but Rahm will still start next week’s Tour Championship two behind DJ.

It’s the second year of adjusted scoring at the East Lake, meaning Johnson, the FedExCup No. 1, will start the week with a two-shot advantage.

Here’s how the 30-man field will open the season’s final event, with the winner taking home the FedExCup:

Joe Burrow spars with Bengals defense in intriguing Sunday scrimmage

Joe Burrow had another strong showing at a Cincinnati Bengals training camp scrimmage, this time on Sunday evening in an exhibition meant to take the place of the traditional third preseason game.

It didn’t look good at first though, not with Burrow posting an 0-for-3 line to start the scrimmage.

Not that Burrow has been a stranger to bouncing back during camp. He quickly responded by completing nine of his next 10 passes with a touchdown pass to Tyler Boyd. Burrow also peppered tight end C.J. Uzomah with plenty of looks.

Burrow hit plenty of other targets on later drives, including the upstart Mike Thomas. He also had at least one fluky interception, though coaches ended up calling a flag and it was overturned (no officials were present so things were a little fluid).

The 30 golfers who advanced to the 2020 Tour Championship

The BMW Championship is in the books, the FedEx Cup points have been calculated and we now know the 30 golfers who will be moving on to the Tour Championship at East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta.

After the conclusion of the BMW Championship, the golfer ranked No. 1 on the FedEx Cup point list will start the Tour Championship with a score of -10, a reward for accumulating the most points throughout the season.

That golfer will be Dustin Johnson. Jon Rahm, winner of the BMW Championship, will start in the second position.

On the other end of the top 30 is Billy Horschel, the 2014 FedEx Cup winner. He is advancing in the final spot thanks in part to a double-bogey, three-putt by Corey Conners on the 18th hole on Sunday.

“You never want to see something like that happen to anybody,” H...

SANZAAR boss admits Super Rugby over-extended

Australia and New Zealand organised domestic Super Rugby competitions during the coronavirus pandemic

SANZAAR chief executive Andy Marinos admitted Monday that Super Rugby sowed the seeds of its own demise when it launched an ambitious expansion plan for the southern hemisphere competition.

Marinos also raised doubts over whether a planned trans-Tasman competition would proceed next year, and conceded the future of the competition was out of SANZAAR’s hands.

The governing body oversaw Super Rugby’s expansion from an initial 10 teams in 1995 to a peak of 18 in 2016, despite complaints from fans that the globe-crossing competition had lost its intensity and become too hard to follow.

Marinos admitted the critics were correct and Super Rugby had strayed from the original formul...

OLYMPIA FIELDS, Ill. (AP) — Even with a pair of silver trophies in his possession, Jon Rahm still couldn’t believe what happened Sunday in the BMW Championship. And he only saw half of it.

Rahm was on the range on the other side of the Olympia Fields clubhouse, preparing for a playoff that no one really expected, when Dustin Johnson rolled in a 45-foot birdie putt down the ridge for birdie to force a playoff.

Moments later, Rahm faced a putt even longer and more difficult on the 18th – just outside 65 feet that he had ...
