Rose 'excited' for title defense at new venue

Rose of England plays his second shot on the fourth hole during the second round of the British Open golf championship on the Old Course in St. Andrews, Scotland(Reuters) - Justin Rose has produced sparkling form over the past three months after a slow start to the PGA Tour season and says he is "excited" about his title defense at this week's Quicken Loans National in Gainesville, Virginia. World number seven Rose clinched last year's tournament after a playoff at Congressional Country Club in Maryland, and knows he faces a very different test at a new venue over the next four days at Robert Trent Jones Golf Club. "So, it's a new test ... I don't certainly put any pressure on myself this week." Rose brings excellent form to the PGA Tour event hosted by Tiger Woods, having posted four top-10s in 13 starts this season, including a victory at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans in April and a playoff loss at the Memorial Tournament in June.

NFL asks police to watch Goodell's Maine house

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell speaks during the 2015 NFL Draft on April 30, 2015 in Chicago, IllinoisIn the wake of NFL commissioner Roger Goodell's decision to uphold a four-game suspension of New England Patriots star Tom Brady, the league has asked police to watch Goodell's home in the region. Police in Scarborough, Maine, said they were contacted by the NFL over security concerns for Goodell's $6.5 million (6 million euro) house after Goodell rejected Brady's appeal of his ban stemming from the "Deflategate" scandal. "They did reach out and let us know about the decision and that it might not be popular," Scarborough Police Chief Robbie Moulton told the Portland Press Herald.

Brady blasts NFL 'Deflategate' suspension, denies wrongdoing

File photo of New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady walking to the sidelines after throwing an interception in the first quarter against the Seattle Seahawks during the NFL Super Bowl XLIX football game in GlendaleNew England Patriots football star Tom Brady denied on Wednesday he had destroyed his cell phone to avoid giving it to NFL investigators, saying the flap was "manufactured" to distract from "zero evidence" against him in the "Deflategate" scandal. Brady issued his statement a day after National Football League Commissioner Roger Goodell upheld a four-game suspension of the quarterback for his part in an alleged scheme to deflate footballs below league standards in the game that put the Patriots in the 2015 Super Bowl. Many NFL quarterbacks, including Brady, prefer softer game balls because they are easier to grip in cold weather.

Fed says economy improving; September rate hike in view

An eagle tops the U.S. Federal Reserve building's facade in WashingtonThe U.S. economy and job market continue to strengthen, the Federal Reserve said on Wednesday, leaving the door open for a possible interest rate hike when central bank policymakers next meet in September. "On balance, a range of labor market indicators suggest that underutilization of labor resources has diminished since early this year," the Fed said in a policy statement that kept rates unchanged. The Fed also said it now only needs to see "some" more improvement in the labor market, a qualification that analysts said strongly suggested it believes the recent solid U.S. job gains will continue.

Weak home purchase contracts hint at pause in sales activity

Homes are seen for sale in the northwest area of PortlandThe decline in contracts, which came on the heels of reports showing the pace of home price appreciation stalling in major cities and new home sales dropping, did little to change perceptions that the housing market recovery was on track given a tightening labor market. It is important to bear in mind that there is still plenty of fundamental support for the housing market," said Jennifer Lee, a senior economist at BMO Capital Markets in Toronto. The National Association of Realtors said on Wednesday its Pending Home Sales Index, based on contracts signed last month, declined 1.8 percent to 110.3.
