• As members of the media looked on, Tom Watson tried to hack his way out of the fescue on the third hole of the British Open playoff at Turnberry on Sunday. Watson barely moved the ball forward on his way to a double bogey that effectively ended his chances of winning the tournament. Stewart Cink won the claret jug for his first victory in a major, but Watson enthralled the crowds in Scotland with his run at the championship at age 59 (page 28).
• Lance Armstrong (second from left) could only watch when his Astana teammate Alberto Contador (far right) broke from the pack on Sunday as the Tour de France climbed into the Swiss Alps. While Contador, 26, won the 15th stage and took the yellow jersey, Armstrong, 37, settled for second place overall, 1:37 behind. He admitted that he now had little chance of winning his eighth Tour.
• Troy Dumais (foreground) and Kristian Ipsen of the U.S. twisted through the air during the men's three-meter synchronized springboard diving final at the 13th FINA world championships in Rome last Saturday. The U.S. won the silver medal and China the gold.
• Jeremiah Butler (left) took on Delvin McMillian last Friday during the quad rugby final at the 29th National Veterans Wheelchair Games in Spokane. McMillian, 29, was an Air Force airman first class. Butler, 26, served in Iraq as an Army private first class. They were among nearly 600 athletes from the U.S. and Great Britain who competed for various randomly assigned teams.
