Ryan Blaum leads Web.com Tour Finals opener (The Associated Press)
Ryan Blaum shot an 8-under 64 on Thursday to take the lead in the Hotel Fitness Championship, the first of four events in the Web.com Tour Finals. Blaum had a bogey-free round at Sycamore Hills, the Jack Nicklaus-designed course that was drenched by 11 inches of rain late last week. ''I think it was playing excellent,'' said Blaum, the 30-year-old former Duke player finished 31st on the Web.com Tour's regular-season money list. ''Overall, I think the course is in great shape.'' The top 25 players on the Web.com Tour money list earned PGA Tour cards last week.
Stewart returning to competition after fatal crash (The Associated Press)
Tony Stewart will return to Sprint Cup competition Sunday night at Atlanta Motor Speedway, ending a three-race hiatus taken after he struck and killed a fellow driver during a dirt-track race. The three-time NASCAR champion has not raced since his car hit Kevin Ward Jr. at an Aug. 9 sprint car event in upstate New York. Stewart pulled out of the NASCAR race at Watkins Glen the next morning, then skipped races at Michigan and Bristol Motor Speedway. Stewart-Haas Racing executive vice president Brett Frood has said the emphasis was on giving Stewart time needed to get him ''in a better place than he is.'' Stewart's only comment since the crash was a statement the day after the crash in which he said ''there aren't words to describe the sadness I feel about the accident that took the life of Kevin Ward Jr.'' Ward had climbed from his car after it had spun while racing for position with Stewart.
