PGA: Humana Challenge-Third Round(Reuters) - Phil Mickelson has been a little rusty with his usually renowned short game in his first PGA Tour event in four months and he squandered the chance to shoot a low score at the Humana Challenge with some untidy play on Saturday. Though the American left-hander piled up eight birdies in the third round, he also carded four bogeys to finish with a four-under-par 68 on the Palmer Private course at PGA West. "The little nuances of getting the ball in the hole have been slightly off but it was a day today that could have been really low," Mickelson told Golf Channel after finishing at 11-under 205, six strokes off the tournament lead. "But I am looking forward to tomorrow's round and getting that one more round under my belt of competitiveness and see if I can get it all to kind of fire." Five-times major winner Mickelson has not competed on the PGA Tour since he withdrew from the BMW Championship after two rounds in September, saying he wanted to rest for the Ryder Cup that was played later that month.


New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick talks to the media during a press conference to address the under inflation of footballs used in the AFC championship game at Gillette Stadium on January 22, 2015 in Foxboro, MassachusettsA New England Patriots internal investigation shows the NFL club did nothing wrong in the controversy over football inflation levels in a playoff victory, coach Bill Belichick said Saturday. "Deflategate" has overshadowed New England's 45-7 romp over visiting Indianapolis last week to book a Super Bowl berth against Seattle after a league probe showed the Patriots used under-inflated balls in the first half of the game, raising concerns of deliberate cheating. "I believe now 100 percent I have personally and we as an organization have followed every rule to the letter," Belichick said. The NFL is looking into how balls lost air between a pre-kickoff exam by officials and half-time of the playoff, while Belichick says that the team's look into the issue found balls can lose enough air to become outside NFL guidelines without tampering.

A snow shoveler crosses a street during a winter snowstorm in CambridgeA winter storm spread freezing rain and snow and snarled traffic from the Middle Atlantic states into New England on Saturday, and forecasters said they expected a second system to lash the region early next week. Winter storm warnings remained in place for parts of New England, with up to 8 inches (20 cm) of snow expected in the area overnight as the storm system headed east, said National Weather Service (NWS) meteorologist Brian Hurley in College Park, Maryland.


Bomb threats against two U.S. airline flights on Saturday prompted North American air defense fighter planes to scramble to accompany them to their destination in Atlanta, an airport spokesman said. The planes landed safely at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, no bombs were found aboard either and the Atlanta airport has returned to normal operations, said airport spokesman Reese McCranie. Threats against Delta Air Lines flight 1156, coming from Portland, Oregon, and Southwest Airlines flight 2492, from Milwaukee, had been deemed credible, McCranie said. Several media outlets reported that a Twitter user going by the name Zortic wrote of planting bombs on the two planes, stating in a message to a Delta Twitter account, "I have a bomb on one of your planes, but I forgot which one when I left the airport.
By Kevin Murphy KANSAS CITY, Mo.

Robert "Robbie" Caldwell, 25, and an unidentified man are being sought in the Thursday morning kidnapping of a 67-year-old man outside his home in Kansas City as he was getting ready to leave for work, the FBI said in a statement. He returned to Kansas City on Friday. Caldwell is believed to be driving that car, the FBI said.
