Super-long hitter Rory McIlroy put a new driver in his bag Thursday, and the bad news for everyone else is that he can blast it even further off the tee. Playing partner Bubba Watson, one of the game's longest hitters, could only watch as McIlroy used his new driver to boom the ball past him time and again en route to an opening one-under 71, seven shots behind leader Rikard Karlberg. McIlroy's equipment supplier Nike's decision earlier this year to stop making clubs means he is now free to choose the weapons that suit his game best.
The publicity posters plastered all over Shanghai for the WGC-HSBC Champions portray Rickie Fowler as a superhero "Eagle Eye", and the US Ryder Cup star lived up to his billing Thursday. Sweden's Rikard Karlberg leads on eight-under after a damp first round of the $9.5 million event dubbed "Asia's Major", where Rory McIlroy's putter proved as cool as the conditions. The FedEx Cup champion and world number three carded a steady one-under 71 with just two birdies and a solitary bogey.
Unheralded Swede Rikard Karlberg shot a first round eight-under-par 64 to outshine a stellar field at the WGC-HSBC Champions on Thursday, finishing a shot ahead of Rickie Fowler at a wet Sheshan International Golf Club. "I bombed my drives, I bombed my shots to the green and I stayed aggressive with my putts, even when the greens were getting a bit bumpy at the end of the day." Fowler hit seven birdies in a flawless 65 to stand a stroke ahead of compatriot Daniel Berger, reigning champion Russell Knox of Scotland and in-form Japanese Hideki Matsuyama, who all carded 66.
The Chicago Cubs are coming home with a chance to win their first World Series crown since 1908 in front of their devoted but long-suffering supporters. Jake Arrieta threw five hitless innings and the Cubs captured their first World Series triumph since 1945 by routing the Cleveland Indians 5-1 Wednesday to level Major League Baseball's best-of-seven championship showdown at one win each. The Cubs are trying to end the longest title drought in American sports history and could do it in Chicago starting Friday by sweeping the next three games at iconic 102-year-old Wrigley Field.
Russell Westbrook scored nine of his 32 points in the waning minutes as the Oklahoma City Thunder rallied to beat the 76ers 103-97 in Philadelphia on Wednesday in their NBA season-opener. Westbrook, who also had 12 rebounds and nine assists, snapped a 97-97 tie with 35 seconds remaining by connecting twice from the free-throw line after a foul off the ball by Philadelphia's Gerald Henderson. The Thunder, who trailed by six with 6:17 to play and by four with 4:16 left, spoiled the injury-delayed NBA debut of Sixers center Joel Embiid, who finished with 20 points and seven rebounds.

Lawyers in New Jersey's "Bridgegate" trial will begin delivering closing arguments on Thursday, seeking to sway jurors deliberating the fate of two former allies of Governor Chris Christie. Jurors heard more than a month of testimony in the trial of Bridget Anne Kelly, Christie's former deputy chief of staff, and Bill Baroni, former deputy executive director of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, operator of the bridge. Closing arguments are scheduled to begin at 9:30 a.m. in federal court in Newark, New Jersey, and are expected to last into Friday.
Casino mogul Sheldon Adelson said he is prepared to walk away from a deal to build a stadium that would help relocate the National Football League's Oakland Raiders to Las Vegas if terms offered by the team do not improve. "I negotiated to bring in the Oakland Raiders, an NFL football team from Oakland, because they don't have a stadium there, that I would build a stadium and rent it out to the Oakland Raiders," Adelson said on Wednesday during a travel technology conference in Tel Aviv. Adelson, who succeeded this month in getting legislation passed to enable the construction of the stadium, said his problems now involve negotiations with the Raiders.
