  • The winning numbers in Sunday evening's drawing of the Florida Lottery's 'Pick 3 Evening' game were: 7-2-2 (seven, two, two)
  • They had waited more than five years for this moment. No way were those frail little ropes, strung up on flimsy poles, going to hold them back. No way were they listening to those red-shirted marshals, a bit of terror in their eyes as they pleaded futilely for everyone to come to their senses. They had to feel it, touch it, see it with their own eyes. Maybe that was the only way to persuade themselves that this most remarkable of comebacks had actually happened. Tiger Woods. A winner again . The staid ol' Tour Championship became a boisterous street party late Sunday afternoon, the fans storming down the middle of the 18th fairway like a bunch of crazed college kids laying siege to a football field after a last-second victory. 'Tiger! Tiger! Tiger!' they chanted over and over, looking very much like they may storm the Tudor-style clubhouse, the roar carrying all the way to Peachtree. It was thrilling, exhilarating, even a bit frightening for those caught in the middle of the mob. Then again, it was not an unexpected reaction given what Woods has meant to the game of golf — to the entire sporting world, really. 'From one goat (greatest of all time) to another I can only imagine what @TigerWoods is feeling today,' tweeted Michael Phelps, the winningest athlete in Olympic history. 'Pumped to be watching this today!! Have fun out there today my man!!!' Despite an influx of talented young players in recent years, golf just hasn't been the same since Woods went away, his brilliant career derailed by debilitating injuries and personal demons. As NBC analyst Roger Maltbie put it, 'He doesn't just move the needle, he is the needle.' But that needle looked broken beyond repair as days without a win grew to months, the months without a win grew to years. It had been 1,876 days since his last victory, and even Woods had moved on from the idea of ever winning another golf tournament. He was more concerned about his quality of life. 'The low point was not knowing if I'd ever be able to live pain-free again,' Woods said. 'Am I going to be able to sit, stand, walk, lay down without feeling the pain that I was in. I just didn't want to live that way. Is this how the rest of my life is going to be? (If so), it's going to be a tough rest of my life. So, I was beyond playing. I couldn't sit. I couldn't walk. I couldn't lay down without feeling the pain in my back and my leg.' On April 19, 2017, he underwent surgery for the fourth time, this time to fuse his lower back. About six weeks later, he was arrested on suspicion of DUI after being found asleep behind the wheel of his car with the motor running. Woods blamed it on a bad combination of pain medications. Everyone figured he's gotten hooked on drugs as a way of coping with a body that never stopped hurting. The idea of ever playing competitive golf again — much less winning — seemed downright ludicrous. Then, miraculously, the dark cloud lifted. Woods got himself cleaned up. The pain went away. Just four months after reporting he couldn't hit the ball more than 60 yards, Woods rejoined the PGA Tour and made the cut in his first event at Torrey Pines. By the time the summer rolled around, he was in the mix at the major championships. He earned a spot on the U.S. Ryder Cup team. He played his way into the finale of the FedEx Cup playoff. Finally, on a blistering fall day in Atlanta, he made it official. The comeback was complete. 'I just didn't know whether or when this would ever happen again,' he said. 'I just didn't know if I could ever piece together a golf swing.' Woods wasn't fully aware of all the commotion going on behind him as he strolled down the 18th fairway, chatting and smiling with playing partner Rory McIlroy in the final group. When he got up to the green, Woods could finally survey the remarkable scene. It reminded him a bit of Jack Nicklaus winning the U.S. Open at Baltusrol in 1980, the crowds invading the course as the Golden Bear wrapped up a victory that defied those skeptics who thought he was all washed up at age 40. 'Jack Is Back,' the scoreboard famously proclaimed. 'I just didn't have the tight pants and the hair,' Woods quipped. 'But it was all good. There was no message on the East Lake leaderboard. This time, the most telling moment came after Woods teed off at the 14th hole, which dissects the walk to the tee for No. 17. His closest challenger, Billy Horschel, was heading that way. He saw Woods coming. He stopped to let him pass. It only seemed right. Tiger Woods is back. And golf is better for it. ___ Paul Newberry is a sports columnist for The Associated Press.

  • The Jacksonville Fire and Rescue Department said there were dozens of medical calls during the Jaguars game for the second week in a row. Some fans left their seats early to escape the heat, seeking shade in the south end zone and Daily’s Place Amphitheater. Others walked out during the third quarter, saying it was just too hot. People opting to watch the game from Daily’s Amphitheater rather than brave the heat @ActionNewsJax @WOKVNews pic.twitter.com/oG1tciNPu9 — Brittney Donovan (@brittneyANjax) September 23, 2018 STORY: Bortles Q&A: Jaguars quarterback says he paid brother's tuition with first paycheck “It was brutally hot, especially if you sat on the right side of the stadium, (with the sun) that was beating right on you,” Jared Shlellabarger said. Guest services offered people water cups to stay hydrated, and two Jacksonville Transportation Authority buses served as cooling stations with water misters outside. Fans who stayed until the game ended said they were disappointed by the loss but are looking forward to better games and better weather during the next home game. “Go Jags, we’ll get them the next time,” Barbara Butler said. Action News Jax requested information from JFRD about the exact number of people who were treated for heat-related illness at the game but has not yet received that information. They’ve also got some misters on the ground level near the cooling bus to help you beat the heat @ActionNewsJax @WOKVNews pic.twitter.com/GhBAQBYWVu — Brittney Donovan (@brittneyANjax) September 23, 2018 Guest services has some water cups near the cooling station on the other side of the stadium @ActionNewsJax @WOKVNews pic.twitter.com/pYaJtEgLEb — Brittney Donovan (@brittneyANjax) September 23, 2018 A lot of people seeking shade rather than being in the stands in the fourth quarter of the #Jaguars game @ActionNewsJax @WOKVNews pic.twitter.com/c0CtOLfG0M — Brittney Donovan (@brittneyANjax) September 23, 2018

  • Denny McCarthy won the season-ending Web.com Tour Championship on Sunday to earn fully exempt PGA Tour status and a spot in the Players Championship. McCarthy closed with a 6-under 65 for a four-stroke victory over Lucas Glover at Atlantic Beach Country Club. The 25-year-old former Virginia player earned $180,000 to top the 25 PGA Tour card-earners with $255,793 in the four-event Web.com Tour Finals. 'It's been quite a journey this year,' McCarthy said. 'The PGA Tour was tough to start out the year. I stuck through it and got my game. I raised my level and have been playing some really good golf. Just feels incredible to finish off these Finals. So much work behind the scenes that nobody really sees.' McCarthy finished at 23-under 261. Glover, the 2009 U.S. Open champion, closed with a 69. He made $108,000 to finish seventh with $125,212 in the series for the top 75 players from the Web.com regular-season money list, Nos. 126-200 in the PGA Tour's FedEx Cup standings, and non-members with enough money to have placed in the top 200. Jim Knous earned the 25th and final card from the four-event money list with $41,931, edging Justin Lower by $500. Knous made a 5-foot par save on the final hole for a 71 that left him tied for 57th. Lower missed an 8-footer for birdie, settling for a 69 and a tie for 21st. 'It was a brutal day emotionally,' Knous said. 'I wasn't quite sure how much my performance would affect the overall outcome. It kind of just depended on what everybody else did. That's pretty terrifying. So I really just kind of did my best to stay calm and inside I was really freaking out and just super psyched that at the end of the day finished right there on No. 25.' The top-25 finishers on the Web.com regular-season money list competed against each other for tour priority, with regular-season earnings counting in their totals. Sungjae Im topped the list to earn the No. 1 priority spot of the 50 total cards.
