Molinari makes claim for wild-card

While Colin Montgomerie was extolling the well-timed charge of Padraig Harrington in New Jersey, Edoardo Molinari was just a few feet away here doing the utmost to get himself noticed in the great wild-card war.

Cole escapes driving ban – because his wife is too famous

Mr Loophole strikes again.

Matthew Norman's Diary: Voice of liberty silenced by courts... and The Sun

And so it ended, Jon Gaunt's career as SunTalk's Voice of Free Speech, not with a bang or even a whimper, but with deafening dead air. One minute there he was, Gaunty, up at the Court of Appeal, challenging Ofcom's censure over his depiction of a councillor as a "Nazi" on the most convincing human rights grounds.

British challenge fades in face of total dominance

The shortish, wiry fellow in the dazzling white trousers won the Open yesterday, but unfortunately for British golf fans it was the wrong one. Paul Casey, of strikingly similar stature to Louis Oosthuizen and in strikingly similar clobber, simply could not reel in his playing partner, never closing the gap to less than three shots, and watching the South African become all but uncatchable. Casey's situation was not helped by perhaps the least timely triple-bogey he will ever record, on the par-four 12th hole following an errant drive into an unforgiving clump of gorse.
