Notes: This is the fourth and final playoff event for the FedEx Cup and the $10 million bonus.

Tiger Woods is the only player to win the FedEx Cup twice. Woods is in the Tour Championship for the first time since 2013. This is his first appearance in the Tour Championship without having won during the season. … Nine of the 30 players have not won this season. … Seventeen players from the 30-man field were in the Tour Championship last year. … Bill Haas (No. 25) in 2011 is the lowest seed to win the FedEx Cup. … Jordan Spieth missed qualifying for the Tour Championship for the first time. Spieth is the only American on the Ryder Cup team not at East Lake. … Europe has six Ryder Cup players at the Tour Championship. … This will be the last year of four FedEx Cup playoff events. There will be three events next year.

Tour Championship

The PGA Tour season comes to a close this week at East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta, Ga., site of the Tour Championship, the end of the season-long race for the FedEx Cup. This year’s winner at East Lake will take home $1.62 million, while the FedEx Cup winner will win the $10 million prize.

While all 30 remaining players in the playoffs technically have a chance to win the FedEx Cup, those in the top five have the best opportunity, needing only to win the Tour Championship to also clinch the FedEx Cup. That means a win for Bryson DeChambeau, Justin Rose, Tony Finau, Dustin Johnson or Justin Thomas will also give them the cup.

These five also have varying mathematical chances of still winning the FedEx Cup without winning the Tour Championship. For Thomas, he can win it back-to-back with a win at East Lake, which would make him only the second player to win the cup twice, Tiger Woods being the only other player to do so. A win for any other of the top four would be their first FedEx Cup title.

At 20th in the standings, Woods’ chances of claiming his third FedEx Cup are slim, but there is a convoluted way he can get it done. For Woods to even give himself a chance would mean he’d be in contention once again as he continues to get closer to an 80th career victory, which is an exciting proposition for the season’s final event.

2018 UCI Road World Championships

The 2018 UCI Road World Championships will take place in Innsbruck, Austria, and are set to be one of the hardest in recent years. As ever, there will be 12 gold medals and 10 rainbow jerseys on offer over the nine days of competition between September 23 and 30.

Kicking off the competition will be the women’s and men’s team time trials, which are set to be the last ridden by trade teams – at least for the foreseeable future. Team Sunweb dominated the competition last year, winning both the women’s and men’s events, and have again named strong teams for both events this year, with Ellen van Dijk and Tom Dumoulin set to headline their line-ups. Both of the courses for this competition will be considerably longer than what we saw in Norway.

After first taking place in Copenhagen, Denmark, in 1921 – where there was just one amateur race – the first professional world championship took place six years later at the Nürburgring, Germany, where Alfredo Binda led an Italian one-two-three to win the first of his three world titles. Jean Aerts of Belgium, meanwhile, took the honours in the amateur race which continued until 1995 after which it was replaced by an under-23 race.

The International Cycling Union (UCI) were slow to introduce any women’s events to the programme, but in 1958 Luxembourg rider Elsy Jacobs was popping the Champagne after becoming the first women’s world champion when she beat Tamara Novikova and Mariya Lukshina of the Soviet Union on the roads of Reims, France.

Over the years further races were added to the programme which now spans an eight-day period in mid-Sept, starting just seven days after the final grand tour of the season, the Vuelta a España.

The winner in each discipline – or disciplines – gets to wear the distinctive rainbow band jersey awarded to each world champion for the next 12 months while competing in that particular discipline, though not in the following year’s UCI Road World Championships.

When are the UCI Road World Championships?
This year’s championships which will take place in Innsbruck, Austria, start on Sunday Sept 23, 2018, and conclude seven days later on Sept 30.

MLL Championship Game in Charleston Will Feature the First-Place Dallas Rattlers Versus the Third-Place Denver Outlaws

MLL Championship Game

The Dallas Rattlers will face the Denver Outlaws in the 2018 Major League Lacrosse (MLL) Championship Game in Charleston, S.C. on Saturday, Aug. 18 at 7 p.m. at MUSC Health Stadium. The game will feature two sparkling examples of MLL success. The new Rattlers’ franchise that now calls Frisco, Texas home, led the league in regular season wins, while the league’s enduring example of postseason participation and annual attendance leader, Denver, will make its eighth championship game appearance in 13 years since joining the league in 2006.

“These two teams met twice this season, played nearly 129 minutes and were separated by a single goal in each game,” said MLL Commissioner Alexander (Sandy) Brown. “The fans who will attend this game will witness something very special. No matter the final result, the Steinfeld Trophy will reside in very deserving hands.”

The Rattlers 15-12 wire-to-wire victory over the talented New York Lizards, in front of more than 6,000 fans at the Ford Center at The Star on Saturday, gives first-year coach Bill Warder and his team a chance to win a championship in their first season in Texas. The Outlaws also secured their spot in the championship game, for the third consecutive season, with a 13-12 victory over the Chesapeake Bayhawks in Annapolis. It was Denver’s third straight road game and second straight win in an elimination game for veteran head coach BJ O’Hara, who is seeking his third Steinfeld Trophy in five seasons.

The Dallas roster features attackman and Warrior Offensive Player of the Year candidate, Jordan Wolf, defenseman and Warrior Defensive Player of the Year candidate, Matt Dunn, and Brine Goalie of the Year candidate John Galloway.

Denver is led offensively by Colorado native, Eric Law, the 2017 Warrior Offensive Player of the Year and the 2016 Coca-Cola Championship Game Most Valuable Player, who has 25 goals and 13 assists in eight career playoff games. Mike Simon, who has won four Steinfeld Trophies during his career, leads a defense that hasn’t allowed more than 14 goals in its last six games. Dillon Ward, who took over for the injured starter Jack Kelly, has won two of three starts.
