Photo by Chris Condon/PGA TOUR(NEW YORK) -- Jordan Spieth's reign as the world's number one golfer lasted just one tournament.

Spieth, the 22-year-old phenom who won this year's Masters and U.S. Open, claimed the top spot in the world rankings on the back of those major victories and a top-10 finish at the British Open last month. The Official World Golf Rankings are based on a two-year rolling average including results in each tournament a golfer appears.

Coming into the Barclay's Pro-Am this weekend, Spieth held a slight edge over McIlroy, but needed to finish in the top 60 to maintain that lead. Instead, Spieth shot a 177 in two rounds, missed the cut and lost his claim to the top spot.

Photo by Matt Hazlett/Getty Images(WASHINGTON) -- Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III will not play in Saturday's preseason game due to concern over concussion-like symptoms.

Griffin suffered the injury in the team's August 20 preseason game against the Detroit Lions. While he practiced all week, the team said on Twitter Friday that "further review by neuropsychologists" determined he should be kept out of competition and re-tested in one to two weeks.

A two-week timeframe would leave open the possibility of a quarterback change before the start of the regular season. Backup Kirk Cousins is likely to start for the Redskins on Saturday night against the Baltimore Ravens.

Noel Vasquez/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- He's been with the Dodgers since Brooklyn, and he's going to spend yet another year with them.

Los Angeles Dodgers play-by-play announcer Vin Scully announced Friday he will return for the 2016 season, marking his 67th year as the voice of the Dodgers.

The 87-year-old's decision was revealed on the video board at Dodger Stadium after the second inning of a game against the Chicago Cubs on Friday night. The video involved cue cards and Jimmy Kimmel with Scully saying nothing.

According to the Los Angeles Times, Scully has cut back on his schedule the past few years, and doesn't travel for regular season games outside of California.

The broadcaster turns 88 in November and his work with the Dodgers marks the longest time a broadcaster has worked with a single team in professional sports history.

Otto Greule Jr/Getty Images(SEATTLE) — The Seattle Mariners relieved Jack Zduriencik of his general manager duties Friday.

The decision was likely prompted by the Mariners failure to see a playoff game in the seven years since Zduriencik took the general manager post, reports MLB.com.

Kevin Mather, the Mariners’ team president, will look at candidates to replace Zduriencik over the next month with hopes to find a new team manager by early October.  

In the meantime, the current assistant manager Jeff Kingston will fill in as interim GM to complete the season, MLB.com reports.

Michael Hickey/Getty Images(URBANA, Ill.) -- Illinois' coach is out only a week before the season begins.

Head football coach Tim Beckman has been dismissed by the University of Illinois Director of Athletics Mike Thomas, according to a statement on Friday.

The decision came out of an external review and one week before the season began. The review looked into allegations that Beckman had encouraged players to play hurt or influenced medical decisions.

"The preliminary information external reviewers shared with me does not reflect our values or our commitment to the welfare of our student-athletes, and I've chosen to act accordingly," Thomas said in the statement. "During the review, we have asked people not to rush to judgment, but I now have enough information to make this decision in assessing the status and direction of the football program."

Bill Cubit will be the interim coach for the 2015 season, said the statement.

According to the statement, Beckman won't get the $3.1 million left from the last two years of his original five-year contract. The statement also said he won't get the $743,000 called for if his contract had been bought out.

Jonathan Daniel/Getty Images(CHICAGO) -- Derrick Rose has responded to a civil suit filed against him.

Chicago Bulls star Derrick Rose released a brief personal statement to USA TODAY on Thursday, commenting on the lawsuit filed against him for sexual misconduct.

“I am just focusing on staying healthy and getting ready for the season,” Rose said in the statement. “I am not going to comment other than to say – I know the truth, and am confident I will be proven innocent.”

The plaintiff in the civil suit filed Wednesday in Los Angeles Superior Court accuses Rose of drugging and gang raping her two years ago after breaking into her apartment.

Jim McIsaac/Getty Images(SARASOTA, Fla.) -- Hockey icon Al Arbour has died.

Al Arbour has died at the age of 82 after a lifetime career in hockey where he served as a player, coach, and as an executive.

He is perhaps most remembered as a coach for the New York Islanders, leading the team to four consecutive Stanley Cup wins from 1980-1983.

“Al will always be remembered as one of, if not the, greatest coaches ever to stand behind a bench in the history of the National Hockey League,” Islanders President and General Manager Garth Snow said in a statement. “The New York Islanders franchise has four Stanley Cups to its name, thanks in large part to Al’s incredible efforts. From his innovative coaching methods, to his humble way of life away from the game, Al is one of the reasons the New York Islanders are a historic franchise. On behalf of the entire organization, we send our deepest condolences to the entire Arbour family.”

In NHL history, Arbour is second in wins and games coached behind Scotty Bowman. He was also inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1996.
