FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — Chase Elliott drove backward on the track after an emotional victory that could really get the 2020 Cup champion headed in the right direction again.

AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) — Bryson DeChambeau was the mad scientist who calculated barometric pressure and the decay of spin rate in altitude when trying to figure out how to best play the game. Then he became the incredible bulk, adding 40 pounds of muscle and mass with a diet of some 3,500 calories a day in an effort to swing the club faster and hit the ball farther than anyone.

AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) — Scottie Scheffler is not, by nature, a selfish person. It's not how he was raised, nor how he chooses to live his life, and if that ever were to change, he knows he can rely on his wife, Meredith, to bring him back to center. The problem is that Scheffler plays a selfish sport.
