Sergio García—with whom Woods feuded all weekend—was six over on the last two holes to finish six shots back.

Who's the Rarest of Them All? A perplexed fan in an old-school Caps jersey—Rangers colors, dude!—stood out in a sea of red last Saturday in Washington at Game 5 of the Eastern Conference semifinals against New York.

The jump was to promote a Red Bull X-Fighters World Tour event, which was held in nearby Glen Helen.
