During the summer, Archbishop Spalding senior golfer Micaa' Thomas said getting the opportunity to compete in the 2014 Nature Valley First Tee Open at Pebble Beach Golf Links in California in September was "a dream come true. " She made sure to make it a memorable one. In her opening round, Thomas hit her approach shot on the par-5 14th hole within an inch of the hole, tapping it in for one of her three birdies. The Golf Channel named it "The Shot of the Day" and she was interviewed following the round.

WASHINGTON - As the fighting between Israelis and Palestinians has intensified, I've found it increasingly impossible to watch TV news. Lately, whenever Middle East stories come on CNN or MSNBC, I reach for the remote and switch to the Golf Channel. Everyone needs a break from the all too real suffering that surrounds this story. I happened to mention this in a chat with Jim Bouton, the former Yankees pitcher and author of Ball Four. Mr. Bouton says he's had the same reaction, and as we talked we came up with 10 reasons for why the Golf Channel is actually the perfect antidote to Middle East news: 1. All the commentators on the Golf Channel actually know what they're talking about, and no one is identified by the phony and meaningless title of "Terrorism Expert."

GALLOWAY TOWNSHIP, N.J. -- The 2005 season was winding down and the way Rosie Jones had it figured, so was her career on the LPGA Tour. As well as she was playing, as competitive as she was, the injuries weren't going away. Nor were the tour's upstarts, some of whom were young enough to be her daughter. `Everything as far as my body goes is screaming at me, `What are you doing to me, just stop,'" Jones, 46, said one afternoon last week, standing on the practice tee at the Marriott Seaview Resort and Spa before the start of the ShopRite LPGA Classic.

Biking Charity ride through Md. begins today Kris Bailey helped organize a charity bike ride that will cover 365 miles throughout Maryland, mostly because she saw a need that struck close to home. Never mind that the proceeds from the five-day event will go to aid women in Cambodia, Asia, and Malawi, Africa, each thousands of miles away. Bailey saw mothers and daughters in difficult circumstances, with the same hopes as the women in her life. "The moms, they have kids, they have husbands, they want to feed their kids, provide for their family, have access to health care," Bailey said.

Maybe you're a tennis fan, and you found last month's ruling that Comcast did not have to put the Tennis Channel on its basic level of service quite troubling. Or, more likely, you're a Deadspin reader and you found that website's reprinting of a screed authored by the Tennis Channel CEO as hilarious as it is preposterous. Yeah. Probably that. John Koblin got his hands on the letter, which is in the approximate style of something a precocious 14-year-old might write during an ill-advised Facebook outburst.
