''I'm going to handle him the way I do everyone else,'' Furyk said Monday before boarding a flight for the Canadian Open. ''I'll ask my top eight guys. The way he's playing, he might be one of them. I'll ask the vice captains, collectively, and I think we'll do the best we can to round out the team. We want the guys playing the best.''

U.S. swimming star Ryan Lochte has been banned from competition until July 2019 by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency, according to the AP. Lochte and his wife got intravenous vitamin injections to bolster their immune systems in May, which they posted on social media, and because the dosage exceeded 100 millilitres, it broke anti-doping rules. Lochte cooperated with the Agency, but cautioned other athletes not to make the same mistake.

"A rule is a rule and I accept that there is a technical violation. I am hopeful other athletes will learn from my mistake and be mindful of this rule, as well as others."
