Boston Globe By : Mark Shanahan

Just how exclusive is The Country Club in Brookline?

We’re about to find out. Word around the club’s meticulously manicured grounds is that Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and his supermodel spouse, Gisele Bundchen, whose mansion is just an errant tee shot away, would like to join.

But it’s not clear if the club famous for understatement and insularity will accept the glamorous power couple as members. - Referenced Article


Phil Mickelson $3 million linked to money laundering  

CBS News By : Kyle Porter

 Phil Mickelson has been in the news more for potential illegal financial activity than he has for winning golf tournaments over the last two years. First, Lefty was tied up in a potential insider trading extravaganza.

 
Now, a sports gambling ring and money laundering story. ESPN is reporting that almost $3 million of Mickelson's cash was transferred to someone who could get 60 years in prison for money laundering and illegal sports betting. Here's the crux of the matter from ESPN:
 
Nearly $3 million transferred from golfer Phil Mickelson to an intermediary was part of "an illegal gambling operation which accepted and placed bets on sporting events," according to two sources and court documents obtained by Outside the Lines.
 
Mickelson, a five-time major winner and one of the PGA Tour's wealthiest and most popular players, has not been charged with a crime and is not under federal investigation.

WIMBLEDON 2015: Serena Williams Halfway to True Grand Slam  

ABC News By : HOWARD FENDRICH

Williams prefers to downplay her chances of becoming the first tennis player in more than a quarter-century to win all four major tournaments — Australian Open, French Open, Wimbledon, U.S. Open — in the same season.

"I haven't done well at Wimbledon recently, so that's the only one that's kind of eluding me," Williams said, managing to keep a straight face and perhaps hoping to convince herself as much as anyone who might be listening. "So I'm trying to get to that one, at least make it deep in the second week of that tournament." - Referenced Article


Tom Brady appeal: What you need to know as the New England Patriots QB and Roger Goodell meet Tuesday  

MassLive By : Kevin Duffy

For about a month now, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has "looked forward to hearing directly" from Tom Brady. It was a point he made at the May 20 NFL owner meetings, and it was a point he reiterated in his June 2 letter to the NFLPA.

"I very much look forward to hearing from Mr. Brady and to considering any new information or evidence that he may bring to my attention," Goodell wrote.

"My mind is open; there has been no 'prejudgment' and no bias that warrants recusal." - Referenced Article


Jordan Spieths Grand Slam chances  

ESPN By : Ian O'Connor

In his mind, Jordan Spieth had waged a valiant fight against a penal colony of a golf course, against heavy self-imposed pressure to win the U.S. Open, and still he had come up empty. Somehow he had double-bogeyed the 17th at Chambers Bay, and so the birdie at the 72nd hole would prove irrelevant with Dustin Johnson about to win on an eagle try from 13 feet.

Spieth was behind closed doors in the scoring area, locked away with the local caddie, Michael Greller, who had gotten married at this place. Referenced Article
