(AP) - Hall of Fame golfer Hubert Green has died at the age of 71. Green won the 1977 U.S. Open and the 1985 PGA Championship in a career that included 19 PGA Tour victories and four on the seniors circuit. He won his U.S. Open despite a threat against his life that he found out about after 14 holes of the final round. He chose to continue playing and held on to the lead. The PGA Tour announced that Green died Tuesday after battling throat cancer.

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) - Wake Forest has added Villanova to its 2020 schedule while its game with Tulane that season has been pushed back to 2027. That came amid a series of schedule changes. The Demon Deacons were scheduled to play Tulane on Sept. 5, 2020. When that game was moved back seven years, Wake Forest's visit to Old Dominion in 2020 was moved up two weeks to replace it. The Villanova game will then fill the ensuing opening on the schedule.
