No Quail Hollow for Woods, who is 'sick' of being sidelined
News Image(Reuters) - Media speculation that Tiger Woods would make his PGA Tour return at next week's Wells Fargo Championship proved false when his name was not included in the official field for the event after Friday's deadline. Players had until 5 p.m. EDT to register for the May 5-8 tournament at Quail Hollow in Charlotte, North Carolina and Woods was a conspicuous absentee when the PGA Tour eventually released the full field. A few hours earlier on the opposite side of the country, Woods gave a strong indication that even he did not know when he would be making his competitive comeback as he continues his recovery from back surgeries.

Tunsil turmoil reverberates beyond NFL draft day
News ImageThe turmoil around Laremy Tunsil's arrival in the NFL continued to reverberate Friday as his former college Ole Miss vowed to "aggressively investigate" his admission he took money from a coach there. A video of Tunsil smoking from a marijuana pipe made in part from a gas mask, which mysteriously appeared on the player's own Twitter account as the draft began, was just the beginning. The video was enough to see the 21-year-old offensive tackle drop from a likely top-five pick to 13th overall, where he was taken by the Miami Dolphins.
