Darren Clarke of Northern Ireland captured his first major championship on Sunday, firing a final-round 70 to win the 2011 Open Championship at Royal St George's Golf Club in Sandwich, Kent.
Clarke finished the championship at 5-under par, three shots ahead of Dustin Johnson, who saw his hopes for his first major end when he hit his second shot out-of-bounds at the 14th hole, leading to a double bogey.
Phil Mickelson shared second place with Johnson after shooting a final-round 68. Mickelson started the round five shots behind Clarke but put together a brilliant first nine that included three birdies and an eagle. He was tied for the lead after another birdie at No. 10 but made four bogeys in the last eight holes to fall out of contention.
Tammy Horton-Plante, wife of Bruins first-line winger Nathan Horton, tweeted that the Stanley Cup was lost at Logan Airport on Sunday. Horton was scheduled to have the Cup on Sunday and bring it to Dunnville, Ontario, where a parade was scheduled. While the Cup was indeed missing from the parade, it was never actually missing.
Speaking with WEEI.com, a JetBlue representative explained that the Cup was scheduled to fly from Boston to Buffalo on an 8 a.m. flight. It was checked in seven minutes late, however, as its 7:37 a.m. check-in went past the 30-minute cutoff time. As a result, it missed its flight and had to take a later one. Massport told WEEI.com that after checking with both Logan Airport and the State Police, nothing was ever called in about the Stanley Cup being missing.
After things were sorted out with TSA, Horton’s wife tweeted: CUP day...
According to a report from ESPN's Buster Olney, the Red Sox are not in a rush to make a trade for outfield help.
"Red Sox will give their current outfielders -- Josh Reddick, in particular -- more time before deciding whether to go after somebody else," Olney wrote on Sunday.
Reddick is batting .379 with an OPS of 1.095 in his 66 at-bats this season. There have been trade rumors involving the Sox and Carlos Beltran, who is in the final year of a seven-year, $119 million contract and is owed roughly $7 million over the last two months of 2011.

Making his second rehab start with Triple-A Pawtucket, Red Sox outfielder Carl Crawford went 0-for-3 Saturday night at McCoy Stadium. Crawford, who has been coming back from a left hamstring strain, struck out in his first at-bat, grounded out to first base his second time up, and popped up to third base after being jammed on an 80 mph fastball from lefty R.J. Swindle in his final plate appearance of the night.
Crawford, who didn't stay around to talk to the media following his outing, will travel to Baltimore Sunday where he will meet the team for its three-game series against the Orioles, starting Monday. He has been on the disabled list since June 18.
