Michael Jordan to Sell Majority Stake in Charlotte Hornets, and First Round of US Open Sees Rickie Fowler and Xander Schauffele Shoot 62

The Associated Press reports that basketball legend Michael Jordan is selling his majority ownership stake of the Charlotte Hornets. Jordan bought the team in 2010 for about $275 million, and will reportedly sell to a group led by Gabe Plotkin, a minority stakeholder in the Hornets, and Rick Schnall, a minority owner of the Atlanta Hawks. NBA Commissioner Adam Silver commented:

"In the same way that it's wonderful that one of our greatest, Michael Jordan, could become the principal governor of a team, he has the absolute right to sell at the same time. Values have gone up a lot since he bought that team, so that is his decision."

ESPN reported that the opening round of the 123rd U.S. Open at Los Angeles Country Club saw American Rickie Fowler pour in 10 birdies in a single round to shoot 62. This was the first 62 recorded in a round at the U.S. Open in 122 years. Also, the scoring average in the first round was 71.38, the lowest in an opening round of a U.S. Open in the past 90 years. Fowler was followed in short order by Xander Schauffele, who who fired a bogey-free 62. Schauffele commented:

"The sun didn't come out and it was misting this morning, so I'd say the greens held a little bit more moisture than anticipated. And then the fairways are a little bit softer, too, because of that sort of overcast, and without the sun out it's not drying out much. I think fairways are easier to hit and greens are a little bit softer."
