GLASGOW, Scotland - One of the YouTube clips of Conor Trainor's jaw-dropping try has been watched over 80,000 times.

Trainor joked that more than a few of the views were his own.

"Probably half of them were mine," he said, laughing. "(The number of views) is cool for sure. But it was nice just to see so many people watching the Canadian team do well."

HOYLAKE, England - Rory McIlroy clutched the treasured piece of silverware, his reward for winning golf's oldest major championship.

Now he's got his eyes on a new jacket. Something in green, preferably.

With a grind-it-out performance on the final day of the British Open, McIlroy checked off another requirement for joining perhaps the most exclusive club in the game.

U.S. Open? He's won that. PGA Championship? Yep, got one of those too.

Conway, Bourdais win at Toronto Indy

Mike Conway, Sebastien Bourdais each win at Honda Indy Toronto doubleheader
Tyler Harper, The Canadian Press

TORONTO - A dramatic weekend that featured a postponed race, plenty of rain and enough collisions to fill a junkyard was won by a pair of unassuming drivers who held their nerve as others cracked.

Sebastien Bourdais and Mike Conway entered the Honda Indy Toronto overlooked in favour of a championship duel and the return of a hometown driver.

They shouldn't have been.

McIlroys have double success at British Open

A McIlroy double: father of British Open champ hits jackpot when son wins at Royal Liverpool
The Associated Press

HOYLAKE, England - Rory McIlroy was not the only winner at the British Open on Sunday.

The BBC said McIlroy's father, Gerry, and three of Gerry's friends placed a combined bet of 400 pounds (now $680) in 2004 on McIlroy winning the British Open before he turned 26.

McIlroy was 15 at the time of the wager and is now 25.

Cabrera's bat carries Jays to win over Texas

Cabrera's bat carries Jays to win over Rangers but Buehrle denied the win again
Neil Davidson, The Canadian Press

TORONTO - It was about as ugly a win as you can get.

Toronto starter Mark Buehrle fell trying to throw a pitch, balking in a run. Closer Casey Janssen didn't finish the ninth. Even Rogers Centre couldn't make up its mind, opening and then closing the dome.

When the dust had settled, the Blue Jays had defeated the lowly Texas Rangers 9-6 Sunday, securing the series win over the worst club in the majors.

The teams combined for 27 hits. But it was hardly a precision batting display.

Norway's Kristoff wins Tour stage; Nibali leads

Norway's Kristoff wins 15th stage at Tour to thwart breakaway duo; Nibali keeps yellow jersey
Jamey Keaten, The Associated Press

NIMES, France - Almost at the line, Jack Bauer and Martin Elmiger were exhausted but could see it coming — their first Tour de France stage victory. Those last 50 metres, however, got in the way.

A bunch of sprinters leading the pack came speeding like a runaway train and plowed past the huffing breakaway duo in the final milliseconds. Stage 15 belonged to Norwegian speedster Alexander Kristoff, his second stage victory in this Tour.

Woods says Watson should pick him for Ryder Cup

After worst 72-hole finish in major, Tiger Woods says he would pick him for Ryder Cup
Doug Ferguson, The Associated Press

HOYLAKE, England - Even after his worst 72-hole finish in a major, Tiger Woods says he would pick himself for the Ryder Cup team.

His first major of the year, and second tournament since March 31 back surgery, wasn't much of an audition for U.S. captain Tom Watson. Woods was never the same after opening the British Open with a 69. The mistakes kept piling up, and so did the big numbers, and he closed with a 3-over 75 on Sunday at Royal Liverpool.

Jays GM says talks continue to improve team, but is there extra payroll available?
Neil Davidson, The Canadian Press

Can you take on additional salary, he was asked?
