VIDEO: Dutch cyclist suffers terrifying crash

Annemiek Van Vleuten was in the lead on the descent and cruising around 50mph when a slick roadway from a slight drizzle caused her to crash head-first into the curb. She laid there looking lifeless for a minute or two before she received medical attention. As I write this NBC says there are unconfirmed reports from the Dutch Olympic team that she is okay. Thank God, in live action I swear she looked like she died. That was one of the nastiest crashes I have ever seen and hope I never see anything like that again. She was FLYING...

Jimmy Furyk is at it again. Starting the day 16 strokes behind the leader, Furyk went on an absolute tear to set the PGA Record. He hit 10 birdies and an Eagle for his round. I don’t think I’ve even hit 10 pars in my life let alone 12 under in a single round. Furyk was a man possessed as he birdied 7(!!!!!!!) straight holes from holes 6 to 12.
