  • What's not to like about Trevor Lawrence?

  • Rory McIlroy criticises FedEx Cup for handicapped scoring system and highly-publicised £15m winning cheque
    The player at the top of FedEx Cup standings, Justin Thomas, will start Thursday's first round in Atlanta on 10-under. With the 30-strong field handicapped based on their positions in that points list, the player in second, Patrick Cantlay, will tee off on eight-under, and then a sliding scale down to the players in 26th to 30th on level-par. McIlroy starts on five-under and could, therefore, beat Thomas by four shots over four rounds and still finish behind him. More

  • Zion Williamson escalates $100 million legal battle with fraud allegations against marketing firm
