INDIANAPOLIS —Tens of thousands of fans glistening with sunscreen and toting
coolers filled with ice and water descended on the Indianapolis Motor Speedway
on Sunday for what could be the hottest Indianapolis 500 on record. Dwight Freeney Jersey . You can watch the

Tens of thousands of fans glistening with sunscreen and toting coolers filled
with ice and water descended on the Indianapolis Motor Speedway on Sunday for
what could be the hottest Indianapolis 500 on record. Temperatures were forecast
to climb into the mid-90s during the afternoons race, and track officials spent
much of the week urging fans to take precautions against the heat. The track
brought in portable misting stations and cooling stations, but spokesman Doug
Boles said track medical personnel expected to treat more than 1,000 fans before
the races conclusion. The hottest race day on record was in 1937, when the
National Weather Service said the temperature hit 92 degrees. Even before the
start of the race, those in attendance were feeling the heat. Pace car driver
Guy Fieri, host of the Food Networks show “Diners, Drive-ins and Dives,” said
Sunday was hotter than when he was practicing in the Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 pace
car the last few days. Fieri said he thought heat will be a factor in the race
but that the drivers could handle it. “I dont think I could do it—Ive got air
conditioning in the ZR1,” Fieri said. Former Los Angeles Dodgers manager Tommy
Lasorda said he was glad he was going to be in the air conditioning for his
first Indy 500 – and felt for the race drivers. “With the equipment they wear,
its going to be tough. Its going to be really tough,” Lasorda said. “I feel
sorry that they have to do it when its this hot, too.” Laurie Smith, 47, of
Fishers, Ind., and her 14-year-old son, C.J., werent fazed. Smith packed hats,
bottles equipped with fans and misters and collapsible coolers that included
plastic bags containing a damp washcloth and ice to cool down their necks. She
also had a secret weapon: a black umbrella. Smith said shes taken the umbrella
on outings to amusement parks and other places to provide shade on hot days, but
this was the first time in her four trips to the 500 that shed brought it to the
track. “It brings (the temperature) down maybe five, six degrees,” she said. “It
makes it just a little cooler.” Smith planned to use the umbrella while walking
around but said she wouldnt open it during the race unless they move to a higher
vantage point where she wouldnt obstruct anyones view. “If I need to scoot up to
the back couple of rows with my umbrella, thats an option,” she said. If thats
not possible, she has a backup plan. “If it gets a little warm, well just have
to go underneath the stands and do a little shopping,” she said. Some fans,
though, opted to sit this one out. Paula Jarrett, 52, of New Palestine, Ind.,
just east of Indianapolis, has attended nearly every race for the last decade,
and her husband, David Hill, has been going for about 20 years. Theyve sat
through unseasonably cold days, heat waves and even severe thunderstorms in 2004
that spawned tornadoes in the city. “We usually never miss a race,” Jarrett
said. “Weve been at the track before when its 55 and rainy and youre freezing
your rear off and drinking hot chocolate and wishing the sun would come out, and
weve been out there and fried in the sun.” This year, though, they decided to
sell their tickets high in the third turn after seeing the forecast of record
temperatures and heat indexes of 100 degrees. Even on a cooler day, Jarrett
said, the sun is “in your face all afternoon long. Its just hot as Hades up
there. Youre packed in with all those people up there. You cant keep sunscreen
on.” The couple found takers for all four of their tickets. Jarrett said her
husband had some “sellers remorse” and acknowledged they would miss seeing the
action in person, Still, she said sitting this one out wasnt all bad. “Theres
something to be said for staying at home and listening to it on the radio,” she
said. Pat Angerer Jersey . With six rounds to go,

Ryder Hesjedal and Olympic veteran Clara Hughes will lead the Canadian road
cycling team at the London Olympics.NORTON, Mass. —Rory McIlroy got the start
he wanted Monday at the Deutsche Bank Championship, erasing a three-shot deficit
in just five holes. The finish was hardly a masterpiece, except for the part
when golfs No. 1 player posed with the trophy. Boy Wonder didnt make it easy on
himself on Labor Day at the TPC Boston. He tore up the turf on a tee shot that
travelled 170 yards, and that was the only fairway he hit over the last five
holes. He had to make a 6-foot putt to save par from a bunker, and a 5-foot putt
to save bogey after a pitch sailed from one side of the green to the other. And
he had to wait as Louis Oosthuizens birdie putt to force a playoff slid below
the hole. “I had a couple of wobbles coming in, but I obviously did enough and
Im very excited to get a victory,” McIlroy said. Thats all anyone will remember.
On a leaderboard packed with some of the biggest names in golf—McIlroy,
Oosthuizen, Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson and Dustin Johnson—the 23-year-old
from Northern Ireland took a giant leap toward establishing himself as the best
in the game. With four birdies in six holes at the start, and limiting the
damage from his mistakes at the end, McIlroy closed with a 4-under 67 for a
one-shot victory over Oosthuizen, joining Woods as the only three-time winners
this year on the PGA Tour. McIlroy goes to No. 1 in the FedEx Cup. And with one
of his wins being the PGA Championship, that might be enough for his peers to
vote him PGA Tour player of the year. He also has a comfortable gap in the world
ranking, and could be tough to catch the rest of the year unless Woods were to
win the next two FedEx Cup events. “Hes not No. 1 in the world for nothing,”
Oosthuizen said. “Hes a great young talent, a lot of majors left for him to win.
Hes such a cool kid on the course. Its great playing with him. He makes tough
shots look really easy sometimes, especially long irons. “I dont think the back
nine he hit the ball that great after what he did on the front nine, but he did
what he had to do.” Woods made an early charge to get back in the hunt, though
he never got closer than three shots until a two-putt birdie on the par-5 18th
gave him a 66. He finished in third place, two shots behind, and earned enough
money to become the first player to surpass $100 million in PGA Tour earnings.
Woods attributed that to higher purses, though hes responsible for those. “I
think we got some interest in the game of golf,” Woods said. “A lot more youth,
thats for sure.” One of those kids—McIlroy—keeps winning. The Honda
Classic in March. The record eight-shot win in the PGA Championship. And now a
FedEx Cup playoff event in Boston. “Three is a great number,” McIlroy said. “Id
like to make it four—or five—after the FedEx Cup.” Phil Mickelson also had
a 66 and tied for fourth, along with Dustin Johnson, who had a 70 and likely
played his way onto the Ryder Cup team. Brandt Snedeker made a strong case for a
captains pick with a 65-67 weekend to finish sixth. Davis Love III will announce
his four picks Tuesday morning in New York. McIlroy had a three-shot lead with
six holes to play, and only a clutch bogey putt on the 17th hole kept him from
losing all of his lead. Oosthuizen, who had to cope with pain in his right
shoulder earlier in the round, came back with two birdies on the back to gget
within one shot. Robert Mathis Jersey. McIlroy hit a chip over
the 17th green into more rough, and it looked as if he would struggle to make
bogey. Oosthuizen, however, missed the green from 140 yards in the fairway,
chipped poorly to 10 feet and missed his par putt, and McIlroy calmly sank his
5-foot bogey putt to stay one shot ahead. “The 17th hole cost me,” Oosthuizen
said. McIlroy finished 20-under 264. It was the second time this year that
Oosthuizen, who won the British Open by seven shots at St. Andrews two years
ago, failed to win after leading going into the final round. McIlroy made an
early charge with three straight birdies, but the turning point came on the
fifth hole when Oosthuizen felt pain in his shoulder on a tee shot that sailed
into the trees and led to double bogey. The pain went away on the back, which
the South African attributed to an adrenaline rush. McIlroy and Oosthuizen
turned it into a two-man race, with Woods lurking until he couldnt convert
enough putts. In the end, neither could Oosthuizen. He missed from just inside
10 feet for par on the 17th and from 12 feet on the 18th. “I probably made all
my putts yesterday,” Oosthuizen said. There was other drama at the Deutsche Bank
Championship, though it was not nearly as compelling as the top of the
leaderboard. Charley Hoffman went from the first page of the leaderboard to an
unimaginable collapse until he steadied himself at the end. Hoffman, who was 13
under after a birdie on the eighth hole, played his next nine holes in 8-over
par, including a quadruple-bogey 7 on the par-3 11th. He came to the 18th
needing a par to finish among the top 70 in the FedEx Cup and advance to the
third playoff event next week in Indianapolis. He went over the green in two,
barely chipped onto the putting surface, and then ran his putt 12 feet by the
hole. He made the putt for par, and moves on. “I didnt expect to be playing next
week,” Hoffman said. “Shooting 42 on the back nine, I dont think I deserved to
play next week. But I guess Ive got another chance.” Others who advanced
included Dicky Pride, who birdied his last two holes to get the 70th spot by one
stroke over Jonas Blixt; and Chris Kirk, who stumbled at the start only to
birdie four of his last five holes. Oosthuizen had a three-shot lead at the
start of the final round, though he was never expecting an easy time. McIlroy
rallied to cut a six-shot deficit in half on the back nine of the third round to
give himself a chance, another example why he is No. 1 in the world. Sure
enough, McIlroy came out firing with three straight birdies, starting with a
two-putt from the fringe on the par-5 second. The fifth hole changed everything.
Oosthuizen reached for his shoulder after a horrific snap hook off the tee. The
ball dove into the woods and landed in the middle of shoulder-high bushes,
leaving him no option but to take a penalty drop out of the hazard. He laid up
short of the creek and two-putted for double bogey. They were tied, because
McIlroys tee shot found a clump of native grass on the edge of a bunker, and he
had to chip out short of the creek and made bogey. Oosthuizen, though, was
clearly hurting. He couldnt get through his swing on the next tee shot, which
sailed into the bunker and kept him from attacking the pin. Thats what McIlroy
did, hitting 9-iron into 3 feet for birdie and his first lead. He never gave it
back. ’ ’ ’
