Daily Sports: PGA Championship Finale Highlights Sunday

It’s the final day of golf from Oak Hill today, as the PGA Championship concludes. Jim Furyk holds a one-stroke lead on Jason Dufner, and four others within four shots of the lead. I’d personally like to see Rory McIlroy rally from six down, but I’m not holding my breath. Golf keys Sunday’s daily sports docket, with TNT starting coverage at 11 AM ET and going for three hours, and then CBS taking over at 2 PM ET and going until the end of the tournament roughly five hours later.

Sunday baseball on TV offers the usual day-night doubleheader, with TBS and ESPN. It’s Tigers-Yanks from the Bronx, under the watchful eye of Ernie Johnson and John Smoltz at 1 PM ET on TBS. Then the week concludes with Rays-Dodgers on ESPN’s Sunday Night Baseball at 8 PM ET. The Dodgers have knocked Tampa off in the first two games of this series, continuing a hot streak that was explored in Friday’s MLB coverage here at TheSportsNotebook.

Week 1 of the NFL preseason has a mostly quiet day, but there’s still Buffalo-Indianapolis at 1:30 PM ET on the NFL Network. TheSportsNotebook did its AFC East preview a couple days ago and I’m cautiously optimistic about the Bills this season. This is a team that’s gotten some excess love from pundits in recent years so I emphasize the “caution” in my optimism, but at the very least, I think they can beat out Miami and the New York Jets for second place in the AFC East.

Yesterday at TheSportsNotebook we had NASCAR Sprint Cup Series coverage, in anticipation of today’s race at Watkins Glen. The Cheez-It-355 runs at 1 PM ET and will be televised by ESPN.

TheSportsNotebook’s Sunday is going to be about the NFL, as a preview of the NFC West will go up later on today.
