- Mickelson and Kuchar take aim at The Barclays
By Larry Fine PARAMUS New Jersey (Reuters) - Phil Mickelson and Matt Kuchar are primed for a chance to win this week's Barclays, the first installment of the four-event FedExCup playoffs, and derail the magical run of Northern Irishman Rory McIlroy. McIlroy, ranked first in the world and first in the FedExCup standings after winning the British Open, WGC-Bridgestone and PGA Championship in succession, begins a quest for a fourth victory in a row when the elite 125-man field tees it up on Thursday for the first round at Ridgewood Country Club. Mickelson bounced back from a sub-par season with a second-place finish earlier this month behind the 25-year-old McIlroy in the PGA Championship at Valhalla for his ninth runner-up showing at a major. "The PGA was a big week for me because it was the first time this year my game was back," Mickelson told reporters on Tuesday at the tree-lined course designed by A.W. Tillinghast.
- Watson thirsts for first taste of Ryder Cup success
By Larry Fine PARAMUS New Jersey (Reuters) - Twice Masters champion Bubba Watson says the thrill of merely making a Ryder Cup is no longer enough for him and that it is high time the U.S. "As a kid growing up, your whole dream was to be on the PGA Tour and then make the Ryder Cup team," Watson told reporters on Tuesday ahead of Thursday's first round of The Barclays, the opening event of the FedExCup playoffs. "I think sometimes ... we get so excited about making the team, and now not having a victory, not tasting a victory, that drives me to try to win one, to try to win a Ryder Cup," the emotional left-hander said. Watson will be appearing in his third successive Ryder Cup, carrying in a personal 3-5-0 record after losses at Celtic Manor in Wales in 2010 and at Medinah in 2012, when Europe triumphed after a rousing, record-tying Sunday comeback.

- Lance Armstrong says the big lie would have continued

OK, so we’ve seen the iPhone 6’s rear shell and its front display panel countless times by now.

MacRumors has snagged some more photos from luxury retailer Feld & Volk that show the iPhone 6’s front panel attached directly to its rear shell, which marks the first time we’ve seen these two components assembled together like this. MacRumors comments that “it’s important to note that Feld and Volk’s images still depict unfinished iPhone 6 parts that are in rough condition, and Apple’s completed device will undoubtedly look even more polished.”
