Webb Simpson avoids penalty for stepping on ball thanks to rules changes

There has been plenty of talk about players putting on the green with the flagstick in the hole, and having to drop the ball at knee-high length…

2:00 AM ET Greg WyshynskiESPN The NHL has reached the midpoint of the season, which means we are at that delightful juncture where awards-race narratives start being cemented and we all pray that the front-runners stay healthy.
