It was time.” Wilson threw for 225 yards and his 15-yard touchdown pass to Ed Dickson with 5:08 left was the difference in the Seahawks’ 27-24 victory over the Green Bay Packers on Thursday night.

Red Sox’s Mookie Betts caps off winning year with MVP award

Mookie Betts is ready to become an ambassador for baseball, now that he’s won a batting title, World Series and Most Valuable Player award with Boston. “I enjoy being kind of a face around the game. I’ve kind of used this pedestal or whatever you want to say to spread knowledge that the game is fun,” he said Thursday after his runaway victory for the AL MVP award. Milwaukee’s Christian Yelich was close to a unanimous pick for the NL honour. A 26-year-old outfielder just like Betts, Yelich also won a batting championship and led his team to a division

Matt Wallace FINED £3,000 for slow play despite back-to-back Dubai birdies

This season’s triple Tour winning Wallace was adjudged to have taken too long to putt out for par on the ninth hole and this after bizarrely being timed in birdying both the seventh and eighth holes on the Earth Course.

His round of 68 saw him share fifth place in the closing Rolex Series event. Wallace had been advised by McFee he was ‘on the clock’ during the time he

Tiger Woods FINAL SCORE: Tiger Woods WINS Tour Championship by two shots

Woods is on the verge of returning to the winner’s circle for the first time at a PGA Tour event since 2013.

The 42-year-old carded a 65 on Saturday to give him a three-shot lead heading into Sunday with Rory McIlroy and Justin Rose in close contention.

All eyes will be on the American to see whether he can complete his remarkable 2018 comeback campaign at the Tour Championship.

He has remained calm throughout the weekend having been at the top of the leaderboard since the first round.

However, speaking yesterday, Woods admitted he is still surprised at how far he has come in such a short space of time.

“In March, I didn’t really have a golf swing yet,” Woods said.

“I was still trying to figure out how to play.

“My body is so different than it was then, and my equipment is so different than it was then, too, as well, because of my body and because of my swing.

“I’ve gone through a lot this year to get myself to this point.”
