    Gadsden County native Ben Bates will play in the U.S. Open this weekend at Notre Dame’s Warren Course in South Bend, Indiana.
    “It was like finding lighting in a bottle,” Ben Bates said about shooting a 68 early this month to finish second in a qualifying round to gain the spot.
    The 68 was in the Montgomery qualifying round.
    In all about 150 golfers will compete in the Open, one of the few PGA events that is open to golfers that aren’t on the card-carrying pro circuit.

    Prior to the baseball season, Mike Martin Sr. announced this would be his last year as the Florida State head coach.
    This was his 40th year at the helm. In that time, he became college baseball’s winningest coach, sent scores of players to the big leagues and added prominence to one of the nation’s premier programs.
    The only thing Martin lacked in his sterling resume was a national title.

    LORMAN, Miss. -- Having made more 3-pointers than anyone in the history of the Alcorn State University men’s basketball program, Maurice Howard will have to launch from a few steps further in 2019-20 – and so will the rest of NCAA Division I.
    The NCAA Playing Rules Oversight Panel approved a rule change this summer that moves the 3-point line back to the international distance of 22 feet 1.75 inches. The collegiate line was previously at 20 feet, 9 inches.

    Just when it looked like it might be fate, Michigan’s Tommy Henry put a stop, at least temporarily, to Florida State and Mike Martin’s run to a national NCAA Baseball Championship.
    Henry’s left arm limited the Seminoles to just three hits in the Wolverines’ 2-0 win in the College World Series on Monday night.
    The loss dropped FSU into the loser’s bracket, a spot it tried to start working its way out of Wednesday with a game against Texas Tech.

    It looked like a made-for-television event.
    Gary Woodland staved off all challenges to win last weekend’s U.S. Open at Pebble Beach, shooting 13 under par.
    Woodland entered the final round Sunday tied with Justin Rose for the lead.
    The 35-year-old pulled away from Rose mid-round, then held off late-charging FSU alumnus Brooks Koepka with heads-up play on the last three holes.
    It was the first Major win for Woodland.

    Surprising Florida State will face Arkansas in their College Baseball World Series opener 8 p.m. Saturday in Omaha, Nebraska.
    The Seminoles, no doubt, will be the sentimental favorite in the event, as most all nonparticipating team fans will be pulling for FSU and legendary coach Mike Martin to get his first national title in what will be his 18th and final appearance in Omaha.

    Robert F. Munroe Day School’s football coach Alex Lehky and eight of his Bobcat football players attended the University of South Alabama’s Jaguars Prospect Camp Saturday.
    All eight of the Bobcat players competed against other players from throughout the Southeast region.
