British Open: McIlroy has record round

Rory McIlroy tied the major championship record by shooting a 9-under-par 63 Thursday in the opening round of the British Open. McIlroy, a 21-year-old from Northern Ireland, tied the back-nine record at the Open with a 30 that included six birdies.

 

McIlroy is the 22nd player in history to shoot 63 in a major championship. Tiger Woods was the most recent to accomplish the feat, which he did at the 2007 PGA Championship.

 

Woods finished Thursday's round with a solid 67 and said, "I'm in a good spot." John Daly finished with a 66. Five-time winner Tom Watson, who was lst year's runner-up, shot a 73.

Faxon on D&C: Tiger faces 'huge week'

PGA golfer and Rhode Island resident Brad Faxon joined the Dennis & Callahan show Thursday morning to talk about the British Open at the legendary St. Andrews course in Scotland. "There's nothing quite like it," Faxon said of the difficult course. "You can't compare it to anything here [in the United States] at all, because there's nothing like it. A lot of players go over there for the first time and they hate it and they don't even want to go back. And then there's some players that just embrace it. Most of the players nowadays are embracing it, even though they don't know what they're talking about."

 

Asked about the chances of Tiger Woods winning five more major championships to surpass Jack Nicklaus' record of 18 majors, Faxon replied: "I'd say it's up there -- it's 80, 90 percent. It's hard to imagine as well as he's played in the past him not doing it. I think his left knee bothers him a little bit. I don't...

Mashup: Eagles may be stuck with Vick

An NFL insider refers to Michael Vick's brief tenure in Philadelphia as an "abject failure" and notes that no team would give up even a seventh-round draft pick for the controversial quarterback. That story leads off Thursday's Morning Mashup, which features videos of a now-legendary (and since-banned) "beer cup snake," Lions linebacker Zack Follett's interesting offseason workout regimen, and baseball great Gary Carter getting grief from an obnoxious fan.

Theo: Steinbrenner 'is the Yankees'

Red Sox general manager Theo Epstein joined in on the praise of the late George Steinbrenner, who died of a massive heart attack on Tuesday morning at the age of 80. Epstein praised Steinbrenner for his generous donations to many charities, especially in his later years, including five-figure donations to the annual Jimmy Fund Radio/Telethon on WEEI. 

 

"Our condolences go out to the Steinbrenner family and the Yankees organization," Epstein said Wednesday during an option Red Sox workout at Fenway Park. "Obviously, he was a great icon in baseball and great competitor. He was someone who hated to lose and ran his organization accordingly. We’re finding out more and more, that he was someone with a huge heart, as well, who might have been hard to work for, at times, but that doesn’t give you the full measure of the man. Seems like a great man and built a great organization. He’ll be missed...

One rehab for Clay; no DL for Beltre

While several regulars are on the disabled list, Red Sox general manager Theo Epstein sounded optimistic about two players key to the team's hopes in the second half. 

 

Clay Buchholz is expected to make just one rehab start before returning to the Red Sox rotation while Adrian Beltre, who had his hamstring tighten the day before the All-Star break on Sunday is not expected to head to the disabled list. 

 

“He’s going to go three or four innings on a rehab start Friday in Syracuse, just make sure he’s comfortable," Epstein said of Buchholz. "He’s healthy but we want him to test it. He hasn’t thrown in a game in three weeks so we want to make sure he tests it, gets around, bounces around okay on the hamstring. If that goes well, he’ll probably make just one and back to the big league rotation.”
