Salah is becoming such a danger for opponents in the area that the penalties are mounting up for Jurgen Klopp's side.

perth_map

The deadline for Murray to declare for the 2019 NFL Draft is Monday.

Disciplined Anirban Lahiri lying at 3-under, Matt Kuchar holds lead

Both courses require keeping the ball in play, and Kuchar has done that well over three rounds. Chez Reavie , after consecutive 65s, and Stewart Cink (62, with nine birdies) are joint third at 10-under 130, four shots adrift. The easygoing vibe in Hawaii is a flawless fit for Matt Kuchar, who spends as much as a month at a time on the islands when his schedule allows. Under the circumstances, he might have had reason to be slightly disappointed with a five-under-par 65, which included ... Read More »

Oklahoma QB Austin Kendall enters transfer portal

perth_map

He has spent most of his time backing up a pair of Heisman winners in Baker Mayfield and Kyler Murray . He served as the backup to Heisman Trophy victor Kyler Murray last season. Since 2016, Kendall has only played in eight games for the Sooners.
