Golf: In a wild finish almost too exciting for golf, Jordan Spieth’s British Open win gave him the third leg of a rare career Grand Slam. Spieth finished three shots ahead of fellow American Matt Kuchar but only after a furious finish over the last five holes that included an eagle. He also managed to lose just one stroke when he sprayed a drive 75-yards outside of the fairway into a steep, grassy dune, took a penalty drop and played a third shot from a driving range.

NASCAR: Kasey Kahne survived a crash-marred Brickyard 400 on Sunday for his first NASCAR Cup victory in three years. The Hendrick Motorsports driver won under caution in the race that took more than six hours to complete, finally finishing in fading light after 167 laps and double overtime. Brad Keselowski finished second. It was a wild day at Indianapolis Motor Speedway with Kyle Busch and Martin Truex Jr. — driving the two fastest cars — going out in a crash with 49 laps to go. That was only a prelude the final 20 laps that included five crashes, two of which brought out the red flag.
