On a muggy Sunday in Newtown Square, 54-hole co-leader Nick Watney carded a final round 66 to claim victory at the 2011 AT&T National at Aronimink Golf Club. The win is Watney’s fourth as a professional and second this season.

Remember when K.J. Choi tied the Aronimink course record with a 64 on Friday? Well, forget about it. Nick Watney is your new (italics) record holder after an -8, 62 Saturday. Despite a largely ordinary even-par, 35 on the front, Watney would card six birdies and one eagle for a back nine total of just 27.

2011 Players Champion K.J. Choi tied the Aronimink Golf Club course record with a -6, 64 Friday morning. The 41-year-old South Korean matched the mark set by defending champion Justin Rose in second round of last year’s tournament. Choi, winner of the 2007 AT&T National at Congressional, was unaware that he had tied the record until he reached the press room and was so notified. Speaking through a translator, Choi said that although he’s “not really a records kind of guy,” he is nonetheless “very pleased” with his accomplishment. He currently leads at a total -7, two shots clear of Justin Leonard, Chris Riley, Bo Van Pelt and Charlie Wi, the last of whom finished in fourth place at the AT&T in 2010.

During his Tuesday afternoon press conference from inside the AT&T National Media Center, the fourteen-time Major Champion expressed that while his recovery from injury is going well, he remains unwilling to set any form of a timetable in regard to a return to golf. Woods was quick to admit that he knew there existed a 50-50 chance of further damaging his still-healing knee and Achilles tendon when opted to participate in the Players Championship in May, a tournament in which he was forced to withdraw after only nine holes upon re-injuring both areas.

After being called up, sent down, re-called, asked to pitch relief, sent down again and ultimately recalled once more, Vance Worley’s struggles on Sunday afternoon weren’t altogether shocking considering his recently unorthodox travel and pitching schedules. Though Vance had performed plenty well in his previous appearances for the big club this season, the New York…

Say what you will about Bernard Hopkins’ penchant for outlandish commentary, but don’t ever question his ability, desire or resolve inside the ring.

Congratulations to the graduating class of 2011. You’ve worked and partied…and partied…and partied…and are now set to face the world. In an effort to guide you through your impending transition—in whatever form that may take—some members of the local sports scene have stepped up to provide an example. Phillies’ chairman and part-owner Bill Giles recently…

At 26-16, the Philadelphia Phillies are leading the National League. They trail only the upstart Cleveland Indians for the best record in all of baseball. Still, the silence of their bats remains a glaring issue. The Phightins have scored just nine runs in their last five games, and needed both a gem from Cole Hamels…

Unsatisfied with the officiating during the Flyers-Bruins series? So, evidently, was Dan Carcillo. The National Hockey League has announced that it will suspend Carcillo two games following an incident during the fourth and final game of the Philadelphia Flyers semi-final series with the Boston Bruins. Per the NHL: “Between the first and second period, while…

Maybe Derek Lowe should get in trouble more often. Facing him in just his second start after an arrest for driving under the influence, the Philadelphia Phillies looked clearly intoxicated trying to combat Lowe and the rest of the Atlanta pitching staff Friday night. Registering just two hits in nine fruitless innings, the Phillies’ bats…

Following up on a story we posted here a few weeks back, former La Salle Explorer Aaric Murray appears to have found a new home in his quest to transfer.

Much in the fashion of Lavoy Allen after his junior season, Temple guard Ramone Moore will be filing paperwork today—Saturday—to declare for the NBA draft. Fortunately for the Owls, his eyes aren’t exclusively on the pros just yet. Inquirer staff writer Keith Pompey is reporting that Moore is only making the move to increase his…

In the kind of story that may motivate us to create a new “in a completely unsurprising turn of events” tag, former La Salle University center Aaric Murray has announced his intent to leave Coach John Giannini’s Explorers following the completion of his sophomore year. Widely recruited as a high school senior out of Glen Mills by a…

I’ll be the first to admit that this is at least a day or two late. For practical reasons, I held off on writing a Temple-San Diego State recap until my emotions no longer clouded my judgment. A rant about what went wrong would have been just as unthoughtful as a gushing lovefest about “how…
