AKRON, Ohio -- Dustin Johnson sailed off to the Bahamas for a private celebration of winning his first major championship at the U.S. Open.He came roaring back at the Bridgestone Invitational. In the toughest conditions at Firestone in nearly a decade, Johnson made it look easy Sunday, when he closed with a 4-under 66 and rallied from a 3-shot deficit against the worlds No. 1 player to win another World Golf Championship.He needed some help from Jason Day, who collapsed on the back nine. Johnson did his part by making a tough par save on the 15th hole, when he got in range, and pouring in a 15-foot birdie putt on the 17th hole that made a bogey at the end meaningless.Two starts, two victories, and now No. 2 in the world.Its the first time Ive won two tournaments in a row, Johnson said after his 1-shot victory over Scott Piercy. I mean, thats big. Im excited and looking forward to going over to the British with the golf game in good form.Johnson looks like the player to beat at Royal Troon, with a frightening combination of driving, wedges and -- finally -- putts falling.Day was also looking forward to the British Open -- anything to take his mind off the finish. He had a 1-shot lead, then didnt hit a green in regulation over the last six holes.Far more damaging was the par-5 16th hole. He tried to play it safe off the tee on the 655-yard hole and hooked a 3-wood into the trees. He blasted through the branches and across the fairway and got a good break when a young fan picked up his ball, which allowed Day a free drop from behind a tree. Then, he tried to squeeze a shot from 200 yards around the pond. It came up short and rode the collar of the bank into the water, which led to double-bogey.I thought I had the right play, Day said. I was just trying to hit it up there to the left, get it just left of the bunker or just in the bunker there. ... Sometimes you take those risks, and it doesnt pay off. So it happens, but Im looking forward to the Open.Day rushed over to Johnson before signing his card to congratulate him.Piercy nearly overcame back-to-back bogeys, but two good looks at birdies burned the edges on the 16th and 17th holes, and a birdie on the closing hole made the deficit one shot and Piercy a runner-up for the second straight week. He tied for second behind Johnson in the U.S. Open.Inch here or inch there is kind of the difference between winning and finishing second or third, Piercy said.Johnson joined Tiger Woods as the only players to capture three of the four World Golf Championships. He won the Cadillac Championship at Doral last year and the HSBC Champions in Shanghai in the fall of 2013.His 66-66 weekend at Firestone gave him a 6-under 274 and matched the highest winning score at this World Golf Championship since Woods in 2005. Nine players finished under par, the fewest since Woods was the only player to break par in 2007.Day closed with a 72 and tied for third with Jordan Spieth (67), Matt Kuchar (66) and Kevin Chappell (67).Kuchar moved to No. 15 in the world, which could be important if he can stay in the top 15 and remain the sixth-highest American after next week, provided two Americans choose not to play in the Olympics. Bubba Watson is the only player of those eligible who has said for certain that he will go to Rio.Johnson was three shots behind when he rolled in a 15-foot birdie putt on the 13th hole and followed with a wedge into 8 feet for birdie on the next hole. Right when Day was getting into big trouble on the 16th, Johnson blasted a 9-iron out of the thick rough on the 17th to 15 feet and rolled in the birdie putt to take command.Johnson has 11 career victories in his nine years on the PGA Tour.I feel great, he said. I feel like my game is where it has been all year. I just havent been putting quite as well as Id like. The last couple of weeks, I just putted a little better.He made it sound so simple. It looks that way too. Key to his game was his decision late last year to go to a fade off the tee instead of the draw he has leaned on for most of his career. He has that dialed in, and Johnson said when hes driving it as well as he has been, then Im going to be very tough to beat.That certainly has been the case his past two tournaments. He is building a home in south Florida with one room dedicated to golf memorabilia, such as his trophies.Hopefully, he said, Ive got to make it bigger.

SEVIERVILLE, Tenn. -- The Tennessee high school basketball player convicted of aggravated rape of a freshman teammate will be released from custody next month, a person familiar with the case said Tuesday.The person said the player, who was convicted as a juvenile and has been in custody since December of last year, will be released Nov. 21. Two other Ooltewah High School players convicted on juvenile aggravated assault charges were sentenced to 60 days in custody in addition to the 50 days they have already served.The person spoke on condition of anonymity because Tuesdays sentencing was closed to the public and no ruling was announced immediately afterward. The players names havent been released because they were in juvenile court.The Chattanooga Times Free Press first reported the information.Police said three members of last years Ooltewah team assaulted a freshman teammate Dec. 22 with a pool cue. The incident occurred when the team from the Chattanooga area was playing in a tournament about 150 miles away in the resort town of Gatlinburg.Gatlinburg police charged three players with the rape of one teammate, though the Hamilton County district attorneys office has indicated four freshman players were assaulted during that trip. Ooltewah High School is in Hamilton County; Gatlinburg is in Sevier County.Prosecutors in March unsuccessfully attempted to have one of the three defendants tried as an adult. On Aug. 30, one player was convicted in juvenile court of aggravated rape and aggravated assault; the two others were found guilty only of aggravated assault.One of the victims filed suit on Sept. 9 against his former coach, the former vice principal and athletic director, the former principal and the Hamilton County Board of Education, accusing them of knowingly ignoring the abuse of athletes.An investigation launched by the Hamilton County district attorneys office and sheriffs office after the Dec. 22 inncident revealed widespread, systemic problems going unaddressed at every level in the countys public schools.dddddddddddd Their report, which was released in September, says permissive coaches and an apathetic administration allowed a culture of bullying to spread in the county.The report found that neither Ooltewah High officials nor central office administrators at Hamilton County acknowledged the seriousness of the Dec. 22 case. The report also said there is no indication that Rick Smith, the Hamilton County schools superintendent at the time, took his duty to manage the situation seriously. Smith has since stepped down.A separate investigation commissioned by Hamilton County officials showed Ooltewahs basketball team had a culture of hazing and bullying even before the Dec. 22 incident. But the investigation also said there was no evidence that Hamilton County school officials or Ooltewah High administrators knew or should have known such an incident would occur.Andre Montgomery, who coached Ooltewahs team at the time, was indicted by Hamilton County officials in May on four counts of failing to report child sexual abuse.Allard Nayadley, an assistant principal at the time, also faced charges in Hamilton County of failing to report child sexual abuse but entered a pre-trial diversion program in May. If he complies with terms of that program, which include performing community service and taking a class on mandatory reporting, the charges can be removed from his record.Similar charges against former Ooltewah assistant coach Karl Williams were dropped in May.Also, Rodney Burns, the Gatlinburg detective who handled the rape investigation, faces aggravated perjury charges in Hamilton County regarding his testimony during a preliminary hearing for Montgomery, Nayadley and Williams.
