ATLANTA -- You know the old saying: Sometimes its better to be lucky than good.Dustin Johnson? Oh, hes just good -- no luck necessary. OK, hes better than good. Already this year, his three victories include a major and a WGC event. Now he might be 18 holes away from a fourth title at the season-ending Tour Championship.The PGA Tour? Well, theyre just lucky. Or at least they will be if Johnson can clinch the win Sunday afternoon -- and every other important trophy in the process.With a victory, Johnson -- who is tied for the 54-hole lead with Kevin Chappell and 2 strokes ahead of Rory McIlroy and Ryan Moore -- will claim both the tournament title and the FedEx Cup to go along with his no-doubt-about-it Player of the Year award as voted on by his peers.Its a good look for the PGA Tour, as the system isnt necessarily set up to reward the best player and yet, thats exactly what it will do for the second consecutive year.Thats ideally what the PGA Tour will have, said Jordan Spieth, who swept those awards last year, but I dont think the system is set up for that. Honestly, the system is quite the opposite, but I think its worked the last couple of years. It happens in every sport. The Patriots went undefeated and lost to the Giants in the Super Bowl.We collectively understand it better in other sports. Teams make the playoffs, then compete against each other and the winner is the champion -- even if that team wasnt the best one during the course of the season.Maybe because theres no head-to-head matches, or maybe because a player can win the entire FedEx Cup without winning the last event -- or any event, really -- that we struggle more with the idea that a PGA Tour playoff champion can be someone other than the best player of that season.It doesnt always work out that way. Actually, it more frequently doesnt work out that way.Two years ago, Billy Horschel won the final two playoff events to claim a deserving FedEx title -- but there was little argument in favor of him as the best player of the season.Same for the previous two years, when Henrik Stenson and Brandt Snedeker each double-dipped for hardware here at East Lake Golf Club. And the two years before that, too, when the winners of both trophies were Bill Haas and Jim Furyk.We have to go all the way back to 2009 for the last time players split these two honors. That year afforded us one of the games most awkward photos of all time, with Tiger Woods holding his FedEx Cup trophy while standing next to Phil Mickelson holding his Tour Championship trophy.Thats what wed call a bad look for the PGA Tour -- even if its exactly how the system is set up.If they dont get lucky, it could happen again.While the dream scenario, the one with no controversy or lamentation over the end result, is a singular player sweeping the end-of-season trophies to put a neat little bow around the campaign, the so-called nightmare scenario is still very much at play.If Chappell wins the tournament, but Johnson finishes in the top eight, theyll each get a trophy. If Moore wins, Johnson only needs to be in the top seven. If McIlroy wins, Johnson will need a solo second-place finish in order to claim the FedEx Cup title.Think about that: Theres a very plausible scenario in which one of the worlds best players can take two of the final three playoff events, then stand next to Johnson for an awkward post-round photo op while each raises his respective trophy in triumph.Thats probably not what the PGA Tours executives want, but the way the system is set up, thats what they might get.Sometimes its better to be lucky than good.The PGA Tour will get lucky once again if Johnson is as good for the seasons final 18 holes as hes been all year. If not, Sunday afternoon could offer the first split trophy ceremony in seven years, as awkward as that might be. Wholesale Titans Jerseys . "Thank you for the warm welcome," Beckham said on an 80-degree February morning. In this case, it was soccer weather. The sport moved a step closer to returning to South Florida on Wednesday, when Beckham confirmed he has exercised his option to purchase a Major League Soccer expansion franchise in Miami.

With Parker having a quiet game for once, Nicolas Batum and Boris Diaw provided the scoring as France won its first major basketball title by beating Lithuania 80-66 on Sunday.

Jon Montgomerys gold medal in skeleton at the Whistler Sliding Centre and his subsequent auctioning off of a pitcher of beer in the village square elevated him to folk-hero status. GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Drew Brees two-game funk ended with an offensive eruption in the desert.The New Orleans quarterback threw for 389 yards and four touchdowns, leading the New Orleans Saints past the Arizona Cardinals 48-41 Sunday in the highest-scoring game in the NFL this season.Its good for him, its good for the coach, too, Saints coach Sean Payton said.Brees, who had no TDs and six interceptions his previous two games, completed 37 of 48 with no picks.It wasnt anything earth shattering this week, he said. It wasnt a wholesale change of anything. We just got back to our stuff.It was Brees 21st career game with at least four TD passes and no interceptions, tying Tom Brady for most in NFL history.Brandin Cooks caught seven passes for a career-best 186 yards for the Saints (6-8), including touchdown plays of 65 and 45 yards .Knowing they (the Cardinals) were the No. 1 defensive team in the league, as a competitor you want to accept those challenges and bring it on, Cooks said. As a team, that is what we did. `David Johnson rushed for 53 yards and caught four passes for 55 yards for Arizona (5-8-1). The second-year back became the first player in NFL history to have at least 100 yards from scrimmage in the first 14 games of a season.As impressive of a stat that is, you kind of expect it, Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer said. Thats how good of a player he is.Johnson rushed for two touchdowns, giving him 17 TDs this season and 30 in the first 30 games as a pro.Palmer threw for 318 yards and two scores in a game that clinched the first losing season for the Cardinals in Bruce Arians four years as coach. Arians praised the play of his makeshift blocking unit, but its strong game wasnt enough.Im extremely proud of the guys on the offensive line, he said, and shocked that we gave up that many points.The teams amassed 913 yards, 488 by New Orleans, 425 by Arizona, which finished 4-3-1 at home.Thats a very good offense with a great quarterback, a great play caller, a lot of weapons, very good offensive line Palmer said of the Saints. You dont expect to come in and play the field position game and kick field goals. You have to come in and score touchdoowns, and they outlasted us.ddddddddddddThe teams traded touchdowns on four possessions in the second half before Brees put New Orleans ahead for good, 41-34, with a 4-yard scoring pass to Michael Thomas with 5:33 to play.A moment later, the Cardinals Brittan Golden fumbled and Ken Crawley recovered for the Saints at the Arizona 29. That led to Tim Hightowers 2-yard touchdown run that made it a two-score game with 3:27 remaining.Palmer threw 30 yards to John Brown for a score with 2:19 left, but the onside kick try went out of bounds and the Saints ran out the clock.Brees threw for three touchdowns in the first half, including the two long passes to Cooks.His only bad moment came when Marcus Golden stripped the ball out of his hands and Calais Campbell grabbed it out of the air. The 6-foot-8 lineman rambled 53 yards for a touchdown.CAMPBELLS LAST?Campbell also had two sacks in what could be his final home game for Arizona.Its just the harsh reality that it could be, he said. I really hope its not, but well see how that goes.His two sacks made him the only player in franchise history to have at least six sacks in seven different seasons.But the 30-year-old lineman is a free agent after this, his ninth NFL season. And theres wide speculation the Cardinals wont re-sign him, opting to devote their resources elsewhere.FITZGERALD MOVES UPArizonas Larry Fitzgerald caught seven passes to give him 1,116 career receptions. He passed Hall of Famer Jerry Rice (1,115) for the most catches in a players first 200 games in NFL history.Fitzgerald and his good friend and former teammate, Anquan Boldin of Detroit, eac
