STILL DREAMING: MY JOURNEY FROM THE BARRIO TO CAPITOL HILL
Norton, the only heavyweight champion never to win the title in the ring, had been in poor health for the last several years after suffering a series of strokes, a friend of the fighter said.
A great summer of golf finally paid off for Henrik Stenson. Stenson made three straight birdies to race by a fast-fading Sergio Garcia, and he holed a bunker shot for birdie on the 17th hole to turn back a final threat from Steve Stricker and win the Deutsche Bank Championship.
Garcia was at 19-under 194 and had a two-shot lead over Henrik Stenson, perhaps the hottest player in golf with two runner-up finishes and two third-place finishes in his last five events.
Woods hit a variety of full shots with no indication of any pain. It was far different from four days ago, when he dropped to his knees after a back spasm when he hit one errant shot in The Barclays.

An Ohio man will be charged with aggravated murder after three bodies wrapped in trash bags were found in suburban Cleveland, the mayor said Monday.
In 1983, Terry Eagleton made the life of every student of English literature easier with the publication of his seminal "Literary Theory: An Introduction." He deftly describes the complex development of this subject throughout the late 19th and 20th centuries in a single volume.
Never name a girl child Zelda. That's just asking for trouble because we know only one Zelda, and we all know what happened to her. And Zelda ("Zee") Mallory, the center of the novel if not its narrator-protagonist, is one mixed-up lady, although it takes a long time for that to become clear.
Officials from two Southwestern Virginia counties say a project vital to the area's economic development has been held up for years because of a dispute with federal regulators over what is an airport and what is a coal mine.
Tiger Woods has become the first $100 million man on the PGA Tour.
In a Labor Day finish filled with some of golf's biggest names, Rory McIlroy sent his stock soaring in the Deutsche Bank Championship.
Louis Oosthuizen combined one of the sweetest swings in golf with a putting stroke that was just as pure. That's all it took for him to race by Rory McIlroy, leave Tiger Woods behind and seize control Sunday in the Deutsche Bank Championship.
Rickie Fowler set three goals for himself at the start of the year. He achieved his top priority in early May when he won for the first time on the PGA Tour with a birdie on the first playoff hole at Quail Hollow.
Seung-yul Noh has birdied his last two holes for a 9-under 62 to take a two-shot lead in the Deutsche Bank Championship.
