SPORTLIGHT

Aug. 15

1914 The United States beats Australia 3-2 in matches to take the Davis Cup.

1948 Babe Didrikson Zaharias wins the U.S. Women s Open golf title over Betty Hicks.

1950 Ezzard Charles knocks out Freddie Beshore in the 14th round to retain his world heavyweight title.

1965 Dave Marr edges Jack Nicklaus and Billy Casper to take the PGA Championship.

1966 Jose Torres retains his world light-heavyweight title with a unanimous decision over Eddie Cotton in Las Vegas.

1993 Greg Norman lips his putt on the PGA Championship s second playoff hole, giving Paul Azinger the title and leaving Norman with an unprecedented career of Grand Slam playoff losses. Norman, despite winning his second British Open title a month earlier, has lost playoffs in three other majors the 1984 U.S. Open, the 1987 Masters and the 1989 British Open.

1993 Damon Hill, son of the late Graham Hill, wins the Hungarian Grand Prix and they become the first father-son winners in Formula One.

1995 Monica Seles returns to the WTA Tour after a 28-month absence following her 1993 stabbing with a 6-0, 6-3 win over Kimberly Po at the Canadian Open in Toronto.

1999 Tiger Woods makes a crucial par save on the 17th hole and holds on to win the PGA Championship by one stroke over 19-year-old Sergio Garcia. The 23-year-old Woods becomes the youngest player to win two majors since Seve Ballesteros in 1980.

2004 In Athens, Greece, the U.S. men s basketball team loses 92-73 to Puerto Rico, the third Olympic defeat for the Americans and first since adding pros. American teams had been 24-0 since the professional Olympic era began with the 1992 Dream Team. The U.S Olympic team s record was 109-2 entering the game.

2005 Phil Mickelson delivers another dramatic finish in a major, flopping a chip out of deep rough to 2 feet for a birdie on the final hole and a one-shot victory in the PGA Championship.
