Faxon on D&C: Tiger 'going to find his way'

PGA golfer and analyst Brad Faxon joined the Dennis & Callahan show Monday morning to talk about the Masters. South African Charl Schwartzel finished with birdies in his final four holes Sunday to win his first Masters at age 26.

"If you don't like golf, you wouldn't have liked that. That was an unbelievable day," Faxon said. "[Jack Nicklaus' win in 1986] might have been the best one to watch. This one was a close second."

Rory McIlroy had one of the tournament's greatest collapses in the final round, but Faxon said McIlroy has the right demeanor to overcome such a disappointment. "The guy's 21 years old. He's going to forget about this stuff pretty quickly," Faxon said. "I'm sure he had a pint last night with a few of his buddies, and he's gone. … He walked off this [course] kind of smiling and laughing. Rory McIlroy is going to be fine. This is definitely not the last we've heard from him."

Local hoop star Murphy arrested in Florida

University of Florida basketball player Erik Murphy, a Rhode Island native and former standout at St. Mark's School in Southboro, was arrested early Sunday morning in St. Augustine, Fla., on felony burglary charges.

According to the police report, Murphy and Florida teammate Cody Larson went into Scarlett O'Hara's Bar and Restaurant around 2 a.m., claiming they had lost a wallet. After they attempted to get close to an employee who was counting money, the players were told to leave by bouncers. The players then allegedly broke into a bar employee's car across the street.

Murphy, 20, and Larson were released on $5,000 bond. Team manager Joshua Adel was charged with principal to burglary for allegedly serving as a lookout.

Murphy, a 6-foot-10 sophomore forward, averaged 4.8 points and 2.3 rebounds in 10.8 minutes per game for the Gators. He hit 40 percent of his 3-pointers.

Murphy's father is former Boston College standout Jay Murphy....

Mashup: Masters blocks female reporters

The Masters golf tournament, which has previously been criticized for its treatment of women, insisted an incident in which two female reporters were barred from the players' locker room Sunday was a mistake. The women were with with a group of reporters following Rory McIlroy when they told by a female security guard that women were not allowed into the locker room, where McIlroy was being interviewed.

Masters personnel later acknowledged the error. "It should not have happened," said Steve Ethun, a spokesman for Augusta National (which has no female members). "We will work as hard as we can to make sure it does not happen again."

Also in the news over the weekend, a youth football coach in the San Diego area was arrested on suspicion of felony battery after allegedly assaulting a parent of another team. Coach Saivaauli Savaiinea claims to have overheard Mark Cannon trying to recruit one of his top players after a game between...

Varitek: Beckett was best he's ever been

Jason Varitek has seen Josh Beckett dominate. He caught the pitcher during his phenomenal postseason run in 2007, and he was behind the plate when Beckett enjoyed an overpowering four-month stretch in 2009.

But on Sunday night, when Beckett allowed just two hits over eight shutout innings to a stacked Yankees lineup, Varitek suggested that the pitcher might have outdone himself in Boston's 4-0 victory.

“Best I’ve seen him. As far as [being] complete, absolutely,” Varitek said. “[It was] eight strong, perfect innings.”

Pedroia: 'Four games out now with 153 to go'

Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia took stock of his team after a 4-0 victory on Sunday night allowed the Sox to take two of three from the Yankees over the weekend, improving to 2-7 on the year. While the start certainly has not been what Boston was looking for, Pedroia suggested that the team's predicament isn't quite as dire as has been portrayed.

"In like the sixth inning I was looking up at the board out there. We’re four games out now with 153 to go," Pedroia said. "Everybody knows what type of team we have. The expectations, everyone told us how good we were and we went to Texas and they punched us right in the mouth. We’ve go to respond to it. The best we can do is go out there and play.

"The way I think about it," Pedroia continued, "we’re four games out of first place with 153 to go. That’s a long-ass way away. I’m not very smart, but it looks doable. What do you think?...
