Revered golfer Tiger Woods has revealed that he is healthy and ready to return to competitive golf after sustaining back injuries, which has kept him from playing in the PGA Tour since August. The 39-year old has said that his recovery has allowed him to ramp up his practice sessions and is hopeful about the outcome of the said sessions.
"I feel great. I feel really, really, good. It's great to be back out here competing again. I've missed it quite a bit," said Woods when asked about his physical health. "I'm excited that I have this much time off to obviously heal and get stronger and get my game in order for next year. I went through a period there for the last year, year and a half, where I didn't really practice that much."
Woods first underwent a back surgery in March 31 earlier this year, and then sustained another back injury in August. The golfer had also revealed in an interview that he is finally hitting as many balls as needed and is prepared to compete in the Hero World Challenge. more >>

The discussion between both teams first reportedly occurred last summer and was never finalized, but with Rondo becoming a free agent come July, there is still the chance that talks could resume. However, the rumors and speculation started gaining heat once more, after news came out that Rondo and LA Lakers star shooting guard Kobe Bryant had breakfast together Thursday morning.
The players stated that their meeting was just breakfast though, and there was nothing about a trade in or becoming teammates. more >>
Deion Sanders is reportedly suing his ex-wife Pilar Sanders for defamation after she accused him of assaulting their children.
Deion "Prime Time" Sanders, the 47-year-old NFL Hall-of-Famer, is continuing to go through a tough time with his ex-wife Pilar, while appearing with their children and his producer girlfriend Tracey Edmonds in the OWN Network show, "Deion's Family Playbook." After Pilar posted a link of a YouTube recording where her daughter with Deion tells her mother that the ex-NFL star assaulted their children, the link was reportedly removed by OWN networks.
While Pilar went on to accuse media maven Oprah Winfrey of supporting a child abuser, Deion decided to sue his ex-wife for defamation. In the documents filed in Collin County, Texas, Deion requested a restraining order while alleging that Pilar "has published, and continues to publish, statements on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube and other social media accusing Plaintiff of child abuse, abuse of the Defendant, assault, murder, and other crimes (the 'False Statements'). She has also appeared on television, specifically the 'Bill O'Reilly Show,' making similar abuse allegations." more >>
Kayla Montgomery started her life as an athlete. She was a star player on her soccer team with school. Then she found out she had a disease that usually leaves people unable to stand. But that didn't stop her from chasing her dream.
When she was taken to the hospital, she had been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. Kayla began to have no feelings in her legs and became extremely depressed. But she refused to give up and began running slow to fast. Eventually becoming the fastest girl in her state. Probably one of the most inspirational stories you will ever hear. She will not forget these competitions or how much her coach has helped her through it all.
Now that she is done competing, she can always look back and say when she was able to run through the disease, she gave it her all. God bless this woman! She has the heart of a lion. more >>
As the St Louis Rams exited the tunnel during the team introduction in their football game against the Oakland Raiders, five Rams - led by Kenny Britt and Tavon Austin - put their hands up in the air in an homage to the Ferguson protesters slogan of, "Hands Up, Don't Shoot."
They should be suspended.
What these Rams players - as I now call them, The Rams Five - did Sunday night was disgusting. They perpetuated a meme that has been proven false. Michael Brown did not have his hands in the air. Michael Brown was not giving up. Michael Brown charged officer Darren Wilson after he physically assaulted him in his car. more >>
