Golf’s biggest questions: Rickie Fowler’s major chances, Rory McIlroy’s return

Christmas is two weeks away, and the golf offseason has finally arrived … right in the middle of the 2017-18 PGA Tour season. I don’t really understand it, but I’m going to enjoy it because golf cranks up again just a few weeks after Christmas with the two-tournament Hawaii swing, and then we’re off on our nine-month journey. There is, of course, all kinds of intrigue going into the 2018 calendar year. There already was before Tiger Woods started swinging his driver like he was Tony Finau down in the Bahamas two weeks ago, and now that intrigue has been

OKC’s George: Pacers’ success brings ‘closure’

3:01 PM ET INDIANAPOLIS — As he returns to Indianapolis to play in the arena he called home for his first seven NBA seasons, Oklahoma City Thunder forward Paul George said Wednesday that he has regrets about how things ended with the Pacers. But he also has closure. “I think both sides — myself and the front office — would definitely like to have handled things better,” George said. “I for sure will take ownership on that. But I have no regrets on the outcome.” George declined to say specifically what those regrets are. “I know what I would’ve changed,”

‘Don’t let him shoot it!’ Inside Harden’s terrifying trick

8:58 AM ET HOUSTON — “By yourself! By yourself!” Cleveland Cavaliers coach Ty Lue hollers from the bench after a ball screen set at the top of the arc prompts power forward Jeff Green to switch onto James Harden, the Houston Rockets superstar who considers seeing a bigger defender alone in space “probably one of the best feelings in the world.” The game got close for the Houston Rockets, but the greatness of James Harden and Chris Paul held up in Portland. Ryan Anderson was one point shy of matching his season high, while Chris Paul nearly had a triple-double

The downside of modernizing the Rules of Golf

For the better part of the last decade, officials at the USGA and R&A have offered a simple refrain to anyone professing difficulty understanding the nuances of the Rules of Golf. Be patient, they insisted. Relief is on the way. This promise, at last, is close to being fulfilled. In March, the governing bodies jointly revealed their first pass at a “modernized” Rules book that tackled several of the game’s most complex, confusing and confounding capstones. Having solicited feedback from the golf community, officials from the two groups are currently in the throes of crafting the final text (sources say

Superintendent seeks revenge at Sun City golf tournament

Each December, Sun City golfers take on one of the most fun and most challenging games of the year during the annual Superintendent’s Revenge. From maneuvering around giant inflatables to putting with a hockey stick, residents faced a new obstacle at every hole during the tournament held at Argent Lakes and Okatie Creek golf courses Dec. 5. The annual tournament, now in its sixth year, is an opportunity for residents to not only have fun, but to give back to the community as well. Each player brought at least one new, unwrapped toy or book donation for Bluffton Self Help.

LeBron praises Lonzo, sees first-year parallels

3:02 AM ET CLEVELAND — LeBron James sat in front of his locker Tuesday night following the Cavaliers‘ 123-114 win over the Atlanta Hawks, a game in which he tied his career high in assists with 17, but he wasn’t ready to talk about his team’s 15th victory in its past 16 games. A television stationed across the locker room from James showed the Los Angeles Lakers battling the New York Knicks in overtime. James was going to watch the finish to the Knicks’ 113-109 win over the Cavs’ next opponent — the Lakers and their lightning-rod rookie, Lonzo Ball

Lauer just wants to ‘play golf and stay in the Hamptons,’ source says

Matt Lauer’s distraught-looking wife, Annette Roque, was spotted without her wedding ring in the Hamptons — and her father says she plans on divorcing the disgraced newsman.

While Annette was photographed jewelry-free on a Wednesday morning visit to a grocery store in the Hamptons, with reports saying the couple’s done, lusty Lauer was still wearing his wedding ring in Sag Harbor.

Meanwhile, Page Six has learned that Lauer has no intention of trying to stage a professional comeback.

Lauer has made one statement regarding his firing from NBC’s “Today” for alleged sexual harassment, saying, “Repairing the damage will take a lot of time and soul searching and I’m committed to beginning that effort. It is now my full-time job.” A source says, “Matt has no intention in returning to public life . . . He plans to disappear and play golf.”

The source added, “He wants to be a regular Joe. To play golf and stay in the Hamptons. He has no intention of mounting a Billy Bush-style comeback campaign. He is going to stick to his one statement and not address the allegations further.”

Another source says of Lauer’s vow to remain out of the spotlight, “I wouldn’t make a 20-year promise . . . but he wants to focus on his family.”

He’s been seen in Sag Harbor with his wedding band still on.

A source told us that Lauer and Roque are still living together in the Hamptons, where she’s emerged looking miserable and gaunt. “She’s back in the Hamptons to take care of the kids,” says a source. “This has taken a huge toll. She’s painfully thin. People at her kids’ school are concerned.”

The Dutch model’s dad, Henri, 76, told the Daily Mail from his home in the Netherlands: “She is not going to stay with him and work it out. They are not together trying to work it out.”

Back at “Today,” ratings without Lauer are through the roof. Perhaps it’s just car-wreck viewing, but the show was No. 1 over ABC’s “Good Morning America” for the five days ending Dec. 1. A source even tells us, “They are not going to actively replace Matt.”

Another insider added: “Savannah [Guthrie] and Hoda [Kotb] will continue hosting the show for the short term. No long-term ­decisions have been made.”
