Tiger Woods made four bogeys in a row at the Bridgestone Invitational, the first time he's done that since 1996. In fact, the last time he did that he couldn't even go into a bar a buy a few beers to forget about it.

Woods hadn't made four consecutive bogeys since 1996. Or in John Daly terms, that was three wives ago.

Venus Williams has pulled out of the U.S. Open. Tough week for the Solar System. First Pluto gets the boot, then Venus withdraws.
