Will Tiger Woods play in this week's PGA Championship at Valhalla in Louisville, Kentucky?
"I'm optimistic," Joe LaCava, Woods' caddie, said after he finished charting the entire golf course. "I'm hoping he plays. So I'm just doing whatever work I would normally do."
Woods' agent, Mark Steinberg at Excel Sports Management, said in an email that Monday would be too early for doctors to decide whether Woods could or even should try to play this week after another back injury.
Woods took another turn toward an uncertain future when he withdrew after eight holes and one final shot Sunday at the Bridgestone Invitational.
The U.S. men's national team cut John Wall, Bradley Beal and Paul Millsap, a person with knowledge of the details said, leaving the roster at 16 players. With Paul George lost to a broken right leg, the Americans will have to drop four more players before the World Cup of Basketball starts later this month in Spain. Among those still in the roster pool are the Warriors' Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson.
Wayne Rooney and Juan Mata scored two minutes apart in a second-half flurry, Jesse Lingard added an insurance goal in the final minutes, and Manchester United rallied to beat longtime rival Liverpool 3-1 in the title match of the International Champions Cup in Miami Gardens, Florida.
The scheduled game between the San Jose Giants and Bakersfield Blaze was postponed because of a power failure at Sam Lynn Ballpark. It will be made up as part of a doubleheader Wednesday.
