Day in no hurry to join 59 club

World No. 1 Jason Day says he is in no rush to join the elite band of golfers to break 60 as he heads into this week's Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines Golf Course outside San Diego.

A sizzling start to the year on the PGA Tour has seen two players, Justin Thomas and Adam Hadwin, duck under 60 already.

The Australian star said: "I would much rather win the four majors than shoot a 59, you can put it that way.

"For me personally, I don't really care about it to be honest." - AFP

Bolt loses gold after IOC ruling

The International Olympic Committee said yesterday it had stripped Jamaica of their gold medal earned in the 4x100m relay at the 2008 Beijing Games after Nesta Carter tested positive for a banned substance.

This means Bolt can no longer lay claim to the title of "triple-triple" Olympic champion. - AFP
