Attorneys for the family of Jordan McNair received information about the investigation into the former Terrapins offensive lineman's death late Thursday night, just hours before a board meeting to discuss the inquiry, a spokesperson for the board confirmed.

Having captured golf's ultimate prize, he was annoyed because he didn't secure the smaller one that was also at stake that day. Even today, Thomas laments finishing second at last year's Tour Championship to Xander Schauffele, having missed an 18th-hole birdie opportunity that would have forced a playoff. "It still bothers me,'' he said, even though Thomas still walked away from East Lake with the $10 million bonus that goes to the winner of the yearlong points competition on the PGA Tour, part of a player-of-the-year season.
