It’s high noon...

Matthew Wolff places second in Rocket Mortgage Classic:

Former Oklahoma State golfer Matthew Wolff had a former get revenge as Bryson DeChambeau ended up beating him in the Rocket Mortgage Classic in Detroit over the weekend.

“It was definitely a grind out there. Didn’t start off really well at all, wasn’t hitting it how I was at the beginning of the week and feel like I was really getting some bad breaks as well, which was pretty unfortunate,” Wolff said. “Bryson played great, 7 under. You know, it’s not like I gave it to him. He definitely earned it, kudos to him.” {Golf Channel}

Sutton family’s honesty drove documentary:

When Eddie Sutton’s sons got the proposal for a film about their father, they new the story had to be told authentically.

“When they came to us with this idea I think we all agreed, as far as my brothers and I, that we needed to tell the whole story,” Sutton’s son Scott said. “Yes, he was a great basketball coach and he was a great man. He was a wonderful father and husband and grandfather to our children but he had flaws. He made mistakes. … I think we wanted to show that a man can have an unbelievable career, be a wonderful person, and still have difficulties and still be flawed. And that was my father.”{Tulsa World}

Stillwater Stars eliminated in first round:

The Oklahoma State Alumni TBT did not make it past the first round of the tournament. Losing to 12-seed Brotherly Love.

“Obviously, we wanted to come out with a win but we didn’t,” Nash said. “It was a great experience. Hopefully, we’ll come back next year.”

Nash’s vintage performance — 30 points while making 12 of 18 shots — wasn’t enough to overcome Stillwater’s lack of depth.

The Oklahoma State alumni team had just seven players — three former Cowboys — after Markel Brown suffered an ankle injury and three others tested positive for COVID-19.

But Nash’s hot start put the Stars ahead after one quarter. He scored 11 points in the quarter and Stillwater led 26-18.{Oklahoman}
