He missed last year's US Open as he took the second half of the year off to rehab his knee. He plays 59th-ranked Leonardo Mayer next.

Chubb tallied the first touchdown for the Bulldogs when he scored from 1-yard out, before a 34-yard touchdown pass from Fromm to Wims pushed Georgia's lead to 14-0 lead early in the second quarter. The question still lingers as for how an FCS team that was reported by the Associated Press to be nothing more than "sacrificial lambs" delivered such a humbling loss to the Wolverines, who clobbered fellow national power Notre Dame 38-0 two weeks later.

perth_map

Johnson defeated Jordan Spieth in a playoff at the Northern Trust Open last Sunday, the first of four FedExCup playoff events. Having started at the 10th, Johnson made the turn in 31 thanks in part to an eagle at the 18th.

I didn't feel like I could rotate properly. Schwartzman beat Cilic, the 2014 US Open champion, 4-6, 7-5, 7-5, 6-4, to advance to the fourth round of a grand slam event for the first time.

Obviously, he gives us another chance to stretch the field.

Texas gave up 482 yards of offense to the Terrapins - 263 of which came on the ground.
