Golfers like to tell stories, and the one about Michael Newstead's accident spread across the fairway and to the emergency room even before he got there, picking up an embellishment here and there.Contrary to rumors, a golf ball did not lodge in his leg. Nor did it go through it. Nor was he hit with a club by another golfer.But it was indeed an unusual accident that befell Mr. Newstead on Saturday at the Oakmont Green course in Hampstead.He turned to watch a member of his foursome take a second shot, and the ball rocketed 35 yards toward his shin so fast and hard, it broke both of the long bones.

No. 9, which measures 605 yards, is what the pros call a "three-shot" par-5. It's fronted by a ravine that discourages all but the longest hitters from even considering a try to reach the green in two shots. Dennis Trixler found a way to solve the lay of the land.In order to take advantage of the wide landing area 230 yards out, Trixler hit a 5-wood from the tee. He used the same club for his second shot, which left him 122 yards to the pin. He then hit a pitching wedge that landed two yards short of the hole and bounced in. It was the only eagle of the first round.

A strong first-half performance and finish led the Blue Devils to an 11-8 upset of the rival Tar Heels. Jordan Wolf finished with a game-high three goals for Duke, which led 8-4 at halftime. A third-quarter lull let Carolina back in as the Heels went on a 3-0 run to cut the gap to 8-7. But Duke outscored Carolina 3-1 in the fourth, with Wolf adding the final goal with 1:49 left.

The Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association and affiliated Baltimore Catholic League have adopted a 35-second shot clock for the upcoming basketball season. The shot clock will be in place this season for all three of the MIAA conferences and the BCL at the varsity and junior varsity levels. After years of consideration, the addition of the shot clock was approved in April at an annual meeting among MIAA athletic directors after the leagues' coaches made a formal proposal following the conclusion of last season.

With how tightly contested the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference has been in boys soccer this season, it was only fitting that the deciding goal in Sunday's championship game needed a second effort. Loyola sophomore forward Ryan Conrad provided it. After his first shot was blocked by a Gilman defender, he collected the ball again, nudged it to his right and then unleashed a shot from 10 yards out that found the lower left corner. The goal came in the game's 44th minute and was enough, but Conrad added a second goal late in the game to give the No. 2 Dons a 2-0 victory over No. 5 Gilman at Stevenson University in Owings Mills.

Ryan McConnel compares what he does for a living to "trying to hold onto a tornado or something." And he loves what he does. McConnel rides bulls, rides them for eight seconds at a shot - if he's lucky, which is about half the time. He's a pro, one of 2009's Top 10 riders on the Professional Bull Riders circuit. The New Mexico native's coming off a year in which he earned $146,500, which isn't bad money for a guy who can get the better of a four-footed animal about every other time he tries.

At Timbers at Troy, after you've negotiated rolling hills off the tees, avoided sculpted bunkers and reached a green in regulation strokes, there's no guarantee you can walk away with a two-putt par. Timbers, a county-owned public course off Route 103 in eastern Howard, has bentgrass fairways that make iron shots a joy to hit, intimidating environmental areas and a design that capitalizes on the area's rolling terrain. But the real challenges are the tiered, undulating greens, as friends Tom, Jesse, Bill and I learned when we played there on a recent morning.

President Barack Obama nominated Baltimore U.S. District Court Judge Andre M. Davis on Thursday to fill a long-vacant seat on the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals, calling his judicial record one of "integrity and fairness." It is Davis' second shot at the seat, left empty since the 2000 death of Francis D. Murnaghan Jr. That fall, President Bill Clinton nominated Davis to the Richmond, Va.-based court, but the Republican-controlled Senate never confirmed him, and the nomination expired shortly thereafter.
