Most NFL fanbases would be thrilled with the success the Philadelphia Eagles have had in the last 20 years. This season marks the 11th time in the playoffs for Philly since 2000, and on Sunday the team will play in its sixth NFC Championship in that time span, one of which they converted into a Super Bowl appearance against the New England Patriots in 2004. In Philly, two Super Bowl losses in franchise history just isn't going to cut it, and no amount of NFC Championship wins or losses will ease the pain until they get that breakthrough ring.

Austin Cook hit a hybrid into the fairway bunker on the par-4 18th on a breezy Saturday afternoon at La Quinta Country Club, then chunked a wedge and raced a chip 20 feet past the hole. Kip Henley, the longtime PGA Tour caddie who guided Cook to a breakthrough victory at Sea Island in November, stepped in to give the 26-year-old former Arkansas star a quick pep talk. "Kip said, 'Let's finish this like we did on the first day at the Nicklaus Course.' We made a big par putt on 18 there and he said, 'Let's just do the same thing. Let's get this line right and if you get the line right it's going in.'" It did , giving Cook an 8-under 64 and a one-stroke lead in the CareerBuilder Challenge going into

Even former President Obama sees the change in Tiger Woods. After the two played golf at The Floridian on Jan. 13, Obama was heard to remark that there was “a lightness” around the 14-time major champion, who was approachable, posing for pictures and chatting with other guests. It’s an observation supported by several people who’ve spent time around Woods recently. That might surprise fans whose fixed image of Woods is still that icily aloof superstar, game face permanently intact, every on-course step fiercely guarded by his Rottweiler-cum-caddie, Steve Williams. That impression is years out of date, from before off-course incidents, injuries, surgeries and assorted other indignities turned

Rory McIlroy fired a seven-under-par 65 on Saturday in the third round of the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship to sit one shot behind leaders Ross Fisher and Thomas Pieters. Northern Ireland's McIlroy is on 16-under 200 overall with the former world No. 1 playing his first event since October. England's Fisher also shot a 65, while overnight leader Pieters added a 67 to reach 17-under 199 on a low-scoring day in the absence of any wind at the Abu Dhabi Golf Club's National Course. Top-ranked Dustin Johnson (68) is five shots behind the leaders. Defending champion Tommy Fleetwood (67) was tied fourth on 201 with Matthew Fitzpatrick, whose nine-under 63 is the lowest round of the tournament so far.

Before the Patriots play the Jaguars in Sunday's AFC Championship Game, CBS will air a teaser featuring John Malkovich in which the famed actor questions the necessity of such a production. "But if they see this, aren't they already watching?" he asks, before wondering, "Couldn't you just get Jim Nantz to narrate over some footage?" Good thoughts, John, but instead, CBS hired you to create the ultimate hype video for a football game. What starts in humor turns into a dramatic performance -- complete with a full orchestra -- worthy of an Emmy as Malkovich explains how he would "tease" this David-Goliath matchup of Jacksonville attempting to pull off a huge upset in New England to advance to the Super Bowl.

LA QUINTA, Calif. – If any facet of his game has plagued Phil Mickelson in recent years, it’s been his driving. In the past six seasons Mickelson has ranked better than 91st in strokes gained: off-the-tee once (2014). Last fall his driving was at an all-time low, according to statistics, and he gave up nearly half a shot a round off the tee (-0.434) in eight recorded rounds to start the 2017-18 season, ranking him 194th. Yet Mickelson, 47, entered 2018 with new hope. His new Callaway Rogue Sub Zero driver could be the answer, he believed. The new club is four swingweights lighter than his previous driver, and Mickelson spent the offseason getting comfortable with it. “This is actually the best

LA QUINTA, Calif. – On July 20, 1969, astronaut Neil Armstrong made one giant leap for mankind by taking the first steps on the moon. Thirty years later to the day, Charlie Reiter was born in Palm Desert, Calif. Fitting, because Reiter, now 18, can launch a golf ball seemingly into orbit. Reiter’s TrackMan numbers with the driver are out of this world for a teenager: A swing speed around 130 mph, ball speeds up to 192 mph, nearly 330 yards of carry. “That’s about as fast as it gets,” said Chris Zambri, head coach at USC, where Reiter will play beginning this fall. Golf fans were treated to Reiter’s prodigious length at the CareerBuilder Challenge, where Reiter became the first amateur in the

When Feng Shanshan was confirmed as the women's number one golfer she marked the historic achievement by ordering steak at Dallas airport and sending a photo of it to her parents. The 28-year-old had every reason to celebrate even while swapping planes: she was the first Chinese -- male or female -- to top the golf world rankings. "She is more into quality versus quantity, but also she is a person who has a high golfing IQ," said Feng's long-time swing coach Gary Gilchrist.
