Ex-Navy star Billy Hurley III denied first PGA win at Greenbrier Classic

July 07, 2014|Sports Digest

Former Navy star Billy Hurley III, who had a two-shot lead after three rounds in the Greenbrier Classic, shot a 3-over-par 73 in the final round Sunday and fell to a seven-way tie for fourth at 9-under 271. Hurley took the lead in the second round and shot a 3-under 67 in the third round to extend his lead over Argentina's Angel Cabrera. But Hurley bogeyed four of the first six holes in the final round to fall out of contention for his first PGA Tour win. No third-round leader ever has held on to win the Greenbrier Classic. Cabrera shot a 6-under 64 Sunday to win in White Sulphur Springs, W.Va., finishing at 16 under. George McNeill finished second at 14 under, while Webb Simpson was third at 10 under.

For Wizards center Gortat, choice to return 'real easy'

Washington Wizards center Marcin Gortat, who plans to sign a five-year, $60 million contract with the team Thursday, sat down with NBA TV for an interview Saturday and offered his first comments since deciding to return to Washington. "First of all, I like the city," Gortat said from the Orlando Pro Summer League. "I like the team. I definitely feel comfortable over there. The team really took me under the wing, and they help me since … day one. I definitely love the chemistry between me and John Wall. I think Bradley Beal is going to be a great player one day. Coach Randy [Wittman] believes in me, and I have a great relationship with him. So the decision was real easy for me. I believe that we will be a special team for the next four or five years." Gortat was asked about interest from the Miami Heat. "We had a few teams," he said, "but I don't think it [makes] any sense to talk about that now."
