Photo by Darren Carroll/Getty Images(WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va.) -- Tiger Woods, finished his weekend at the Greenbrier Classic with his first bogey-free scorecard in 55 rounds, a finish that he says is encouraging.

"It's the best I've hit in a very long time," Woods said on Sunday, "I had full control for all clubs." Tiger had been coming off of some of the worst golf of his career, shooting a third-round 85 at June's Memorial Tournament and missing the cut at the U.S. Open.

Saying that he felt like he took a step forward at the Memorial Tournament, Tiger said that if he had made a few more putts, "this week could have been completely different."

"It's not a short-term fix," Woods added, "it takes time to build it." Expressing confidence in his ability to get his game back to the level he's accustomed to, he says he's "pleased" with what he is able to do."

Photo by Frederick Breedon/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Lamarcus Aldridge has decided to sign with the San Antonio Spurs, the star announced on his Twitter page on Saturday afternoon.

Aldridge, who is from Texas, said he is "excited to join the team and be close to my family and friends." The former Portland Trail Blazers forward had been among the most coveted free agents of the NBA offseason, garnering interest from the Los Angeles Lakers, Miami Heat, Dallas Mavericks and Phoenix Suns, among others.

ESPN reports the contract Aldridge signs will be for four years, with the option for him to opt-out after the third year. It will be worth over $80 million.

Aldridge, who had spent the first nine years of his NBA career in Portland, met twice with Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich.

Photo by Darren Carroll/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Two-time Masters champion Bubba Watson weighed in on the confederate flag debate on Friday, saying he would paint over the symbol on the General Lee -- the vehicle driven by the Duke brothers on 1980s television show The Dukes of Hazzard.

Watson tweeted on Friday saying that "All men ARE created equal," and that he would paint the American flag over the Confederate flag on the car.

Watson purchased the vehicle at auction in 2012, and in January had it autographed by John Schneider, who played Bo Duke on the show.

Photo by Leon Halip/Getty Images(DETROIT) -- Detroit Tigers star and two-time MVP Miguel Cabrera was placed on the disabled list for the first time in his career on Saturday, just one day after he suffered a strained calf while running the bases.

Cabrera was attempting to take second base on a hit-and-run Friday night against the Toronto Blue Jays when he came up lame with an apparent leg injury. The team later confirmed that he was diagnosed with a left calf strain, after an MRI showed no injury to his Achilles tendon.

Cabrera is expected to be examined again on Saturday.

The Tigers won Friday night to climb back above .500 with a 40-39 record. Detroit remained in a disappointing third place in the American League Central, behind the Kansas City Royals and the Minnesota Twins.

Photo by Lou Rocco/ABC via Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Becky Hammon will coach San Antonio's summer league team in Las Vegas, the Spurs announced Friday.

She will be the first female head coach in summer league history. Natalie Nakase served as an assistant coach for the Los Angeles Clippers in 2014.

Hammon became the first female full-time assistant coach in NBA history when she joined the Spurs before the 2014-15 season. She played 16 seasons in the WNBA, making the All-Star team six times, and moved to the Spurs bench upon her retirement.

Clive Brunskill/Getty Images(LONDON) -- Serena Williams was forced to three sets against Heather Watson in the third round of Wimbledon Friday, but managed to come out on top to continue her quest towards winning a Grand Slam.

Williams, the top-seeded player, beat Britain's Watson 6-2, 4-6, 7-5.

She will now play her sister, Venus Williams, in the fourth round.

Should Serena Williams win at Wimbledon and then the US Open later this summer, she would become the first player to win all four legs of the Grand Slam in the same year since Steffi Graf did it in 1988.

Williams defeated Maria Sharapova and Lucie Safarova earlier this year to win the Australian Open and French Open, respectively.

Allen Kee / ESPN Images(NEW YORK) -- After much debate, New York Yankees player Alex Rodriguez will get the ball from his 3,000th hit on Friday.

Zack Hample, the fan who caught the milestone hit on June 19, will give Rodriguez the ball during a news conference at Yankee Stadium at 5:30 p.m.

In exchange, the Yankees will make a donation to a charity Hample supports "that helps underserved communities afford to play the game," ESPN reports.

The team tweeted on Friday: "#Yankees will donate $150,000 to Pitch In for Baseball, a charity which @zack_hample has supported since 2009."

"Hample will also receive some memorabilia, tickets and other perks from the Yankees," according to ESPN.

SONNY TUMBELAKA/AFP/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- An Indonesian teenager, who bravely survived a deadly tsunami as a young boy, is now fulfilling his dream of becoming a professional soccer player.

When Martunis was just 7 years old, a devastating tsunami struck Indonesia on Boxing Day 2004, killing his mother and two siblings, according to ESPN.

Martunis was stranded on a beach, and three weeks later was found wearing a Portugal soccer team shirt.

At the time, the boy said he wasn't afraid "because I wanted to be alive to meet my family and become a [soccer] player," ESPN reported.

Now, the life-long fan has signed a contract with Sporting Lisbon of Portugal. Martunis will play for the team's youth academy in Alcochete, Portugal, ESPN said.

A year after the tsunami, Cristiano Ronaldo, one of the best soccer players in the world, visited Martunis and promised to pay for the boy's education, ESPN reported.

At the time, Ronaldo said, "I believe that many adults would not even be able to deal with what he has gone through."
