Dustin Johnson holds his nerve to win Travelers and make immediate return to world top five

Dustin Johnson won his 20th PGA Tour title and his first for 16 months on Sunday in a tense finish to the Travelers Championship. Johnson, who was world No1 a little over a year ago, fell out of the top five of the rankings last week, but staged an immediate return with a one-shot victory over fellow American Kevin Streelman after a 67 for 19-under. The laconic big-hitter looked to be cruising when his playing partner and join-overnight leader, Brendon Todd, took a triple-bogey on the 12th. But ...

Rory McIlroy hits out at ‘silly’ calls to shut event after shooting first-round 63

If it seemed daft that Rory McIlroy shot a first-round 63 and was still three off the pace, then the world No 1 thought it just as perverse that there had been talk of the Travelers Championship, in Hartford, Connecticut, being cancelled because of coronavirus withdrawals. “One or two positive tests and people are panicking,” McIlroy said. “I saw a couple of calls to shut the tournament down, which is silly from my point of view. As a whole, it’s been going really well. There’s a couple of loose...

By CHRISTOPHER RUGABER WASHINGTON  — The wave of layoffs that has engulfed the U.S. economy since the coronavirus struck forced 5.2 million more people to seek unemployment benefits last week, the government reported Thursday. Roughly 22 million have now sought jobless benefits in the past month — easily the worst stretch of U.S. job losses on record.

'In order to make a living I must put myself and my community in danger': Uber drivers say the company's inconsistent sick pay policy is pushing them to keep working — even if they get sick

Uber drivers have told Business Insider the company's restrictive and inconsistent coronavirus sick pay policy is forcing them to choose between their health and their bank accounts. Public health officials have instructed older Americans, those with serious underlying health conditions, and people experiencing common coronavirus symptoms to stay home to avoid catching or spreading the disease. But Uber has refused to pay drivers facing those circumstances, even as it deactivates their account...

Or are they going to offload their current assets for picks and prospects in preparation for the future? Well, the decision of whether a team is a buyer or a seller is, obviously and predominately, based on their position in the standings.

Best places to visit in Connecticut

Connecticut is probably the best spot to see vivid fall foliage in the U.S., yet there’s quite a lot more here than just leaves and trees. There are bunches of exhibition halls here (some of which you can visit for nothing!), first class cafés to fulfill any foodie, and astounding waterfront towns that will get you into the soul of unwinding quickly. There are heaps of privately possessed shops and B&Bs here to absorb the history and culture of Connecticut. It’s a simple escape from most signifi...
