Connor Shaw and Dylan Thompson each threw long scoring passes, and No. 6 South Carolina defeated North Carolina 27-10 in both teams' season opener Thursday night.
The game in Columbia, S.C., was delayed nearly two hours in the fourth quarter by rain with the Gamecocks ahead 27-10.
Shaw found Shaq Roland for a 65-yard touchdown on the game's third play. Thompson threw a 29-yard TD to Kane Whitehurst later in the quarter.
Tiger Woods didn't look anything like the player who only four days ago at The Barclays dropped to knees with back pain. He took full swings at TPC Boston in preparation for the Deutsche Bank Championship, which starts Friday in Norton, Mass. "It's fine," Woods said. "This was the first day I swung a club since Sunday. And it was a pleasant surprise to play without any discomfort."
Woods will be paired with Phil Mickelson and Adam Scott.
Phoenix traded Caron Butler to Milwaukee for Ish Smith and Viacheslav Kravstov. Butler, an 11-year NBA veteran, is from nearby Racine, Wis. The Suns acquired Butler and Eric Bledsoe from the Los Angeles Clippers on July 10 in a three-team trade that sent the Suns' Jared Dudley and Milwaukee's J.J. Redick to L.A. The Bucks got two second-round draft picks in the deal.
