Jordan Spieth chases history Sunday at the 2015 PGA Championship

Jordan Spieth PGA Championship

The Final Round of the 2015 PGA Championship at Whistling Straits in Kohler, Wis.,  is underway on Sunday, and it has the potential to be a classic finish. Australia’s Jason Day leads after three rounds, but 2015 Masters and U.S. Open champion Jordan Spieth is two strokes behind. If Spieth can catch Day, he’ll have won three of the four majors in 2015, and with his fourth-place finish at The Open Championship, he’d arguably have the greatest major tournament year in history.

2015 NFL Preseason TV schedule

2015 NFL Preseason TV Schedule

From start to finish, the 2014 NFL season was not a good one.

The league would like to keep our eyes focused on the field this season, but that’s a tough proposition when everything it and its players do is under a microscope.
