Woodland has clubhouse lead...Dodgers shelve Jansen...Hamlin takes Michigan pole
ST. LOUIS (AP) — Gary Woodland was the leader at 10 under when the second round of the PGA Championship was suspended at Bellerive Country Club, where a band of strong storms brought heavy rains. Woodland is one shot better than Kevin Kisner (KIHZ’-nur) after both completed morning rounds without any issue. Nobody in the afternoon wave Friday finished their second round, which means big names such as Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy and Justin Thomas will have to resume play at 7 a.m. Saturday.
DENVER (AP) — Los Angeles Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen has been placed on the 10-day disabled list because of an irregular heartbeat. Jansen didn’t feel right before Thursday’s game against Colorado and was taken to a Denver hospital for tests. The 30-year-old right-hander dealt with an irregular heartbeat in 2011 and underwent a procedure on his heart in October 2012 to return it to normal rhythm.
BROOKLYN, Mich. (AP) — Denny Hamlin and Kyle Busch swept the front row in qualifying at Michigan International Speedway. Hamlin went 202.794 mph in Friday’s session to win a pole for the second consecutive week as he seeks his first Cup win of the season. Kevin Harvick was third in qualifying, followed by Erik Jones and Austin Dillon.
COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) — Members of the University of Maryland athletic staff have been placed on administrative leave, pending the outcome of a review of the death of football player Jordan McNair in June. In a statement to ESPN, Maryland said the alleged behavior of head coach DJ Durkin and strength and conditioning coach Rick Court were “troubling and not consistent with our approach to the coaching and development of our student athletes.” The statement comes after an ESPN story, citing unidentified sources, described a program led by Durkin and Court rife with verbal abuse and humiliation of players.
WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) — Wake Forest says it has placed assistant basketball coach Jamill Jones on leave after police say he threw a punch that killed a New York City tourist last weekend. Police say Sandor Szabo banged on Jones’ SUV window early Sunday, apparently thinking the vehicle was his Uber ride, after attending his stepsister’s wedding. Jones turned himself in to police Thursday and was arraigned on a misdemeanor assault charge.
