Golf -- Golf Channel suspended anchor Kelly Tilghman for two weeks yesterday for saying last week that young players who wanted to challenge Tiger Woods should "lynch him in a back alley." Tilghman was laughing during the exchange Friday with analyst Nick Faldo at the Mercedes-Benz Championship, and Woods' agent said he didn't think there was any ill intent.

Hockey -- The Detroit Red Wings signed goalie Chris Osgood to a three-year extension.

Osgood will make $1.7 million next season, $1.45 million in 2009-10 and $1.1 million for the 2010-11 season.
