AUGUSTA - On a sweltering day at Augusta National, the kid stayed cool. And now, Rory McIlroy has a comfortable lead heading into the final round of a major.

It's Rory's to lose

The trees are ready to roar and the ground is ready to shake, but for that to happen Sunday, Rory McIlroy will have to cooperate. If the kid from Northern Ireland plays the way he has for the first three rounds, Sunday will simply be a coronation.

Before deliberating, Bonds' jurors get an earful

Woods just not the same

AUGUSTA - There was a time when Tiger Woods would have responded to the perceived slight in the way he knew best - with his clubs. A 65 on Sunday, perhaps, good enough to slip on another green jacket while Ian Poulter waited at the airport for a flight home.

Post spawn bass fishing

Last week we talked a little about how to catch bedding bass. You are going to continue to see these fish in the shallows over the next few weeks because they don't all bed at the same time but you are also going to have fish in the same waters that have done their thing and moved off the beds. These bass will now take on some new and different habits and thus it will require a different set of strategies in order to catch them. Based on the observations you make in the places you fish, you may ...
