Double major winner Jordan Spieth believes defending champion Rory McIlroy's potential absence from the British Open through injury would "dampen" the occasion. McIlroy's title defense and keenly anticipated contest against Spieth was thrown into doubt on Monday when the Northern Irishman revealed he had ruptured an ankle ligament while playing soccer with friends. While many observers believe McIlroy is certain to miss the third major of the season, the American winner of this year's U.S. Masters and U.S. Open is keen to see the world number one recover in time to play at St Andrews next week.

A week ago at the Travelers Championship, Danny Lee became so disappointed with his driver that he gave it to a young fan in the middle of the final round and walked away. Nearly eight years after becoming a U.S. Amateur champion at age 18, Lee earned his first PGA Tour win at The Greenbrier Classic in a four-man playoff. Lee won in his 98th tour event when he parred the second hole of Sunday's sudden-death playoff, eliminating David Hearn after Kevin Kisner and Robert Streb faltered on the first playoff hole.
