Sport in brief
Collin Morikawa won his second PGA Tour title on just his 23rd start, denying Justin Thomas in a play-off at the Workday Charity Open. Three shots down with three to play, Morikawa, 23, clawed back the world No5 to take the event at Muirfield Village, Ohio, into extra holes. When Thomas holed a 50-footer for a birdie on the first extra hole, it seemed Morikawa was about to miss out. But he nervelessly holed from 25 feet to extend the play-off and then on the third play-off hole, Thomas bogeyed to hand Morikawa the win. At the Austrian Open, meanwhile, Scotland’s Marc Warren claimed his first title in six years with a one-shot win.
Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James said he would not wear a social justice message on the back of his jersey when the NBA season resumes. The Lakers are to open the restarted season on
July 30, with the NBA allowing players a message on jerseys instead of surnames. “It was no disrespect to the list that was handed out to all the players,” he said. “I commend anyone that decides to put something on the back of their jersey. It’s just something that didn’t really seriously resonate with my mission, with my goal.” The list of phrases reportedly includes Black Lives Matter; Say Their Names and I Can’t Breathe.
