  • The Carolina Panthers' state-of-the-art team headquarters and practice facility is beginning to take shape. Just over the South Carolina state line in Rock Hill, steel support beams are emerging from the ground on a rocky, dusty 240-acre plot of land. The Panthers will continue to play home games at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte but practices, training camp and everything else club-related will be at The Rock. Completion is scheduled for 2023.
  • Since its creation in 1965, the sport of pickleball has gained a huge following among players of all ages, but still has room to grow.
  • The Congaree Golf Club will get its chance to shine this week when it hosts the Palmetto Championships, a relocated PGA Tour event after the planned RBC Canadian Open was called off for a second straight year due to COVID-19. The club is a Tom Fazio design in rural southern South Carolina, not far from more well-known layouts like the Ocean Course in Charleston and Harbour Town Golf Links on Hilton Head Island. It was founded as much for championship golf as for its stated mission to help grow the game for young people who might not otherwise swing a club.
  • PGA of America CEO Seth Waugh has apologized to winner Phil Mickelson and Brooks Koepka for fans rushing onto the 18th hole at the PGA Championship on Sunday. After Mickelson landed his second shot on the green, spectators swept past the ropes, marshals and security and swarmed both players and their caddies as they walked to the green. Waugh said player safety is the organization's priority and that the organization regretted the situation made Mickelson, Koepka and their caddies feel vulnerable. Koepka said his surgically repaired right knee was hurt by onrushing fans as he tried to go forward.
  • COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — A bill allowing college athletes in South Carolina to make money or other benefits from their names and images is on its way to the governor's desk. The House passed the bill 103-15 on Wednesday. Supporters say it is critical to get it out as quickly as possible because Florida's law allowing athletes to cash in goes into effect this summer and surrounding states with teams that compete with Clemson and South Carolina are also close to passing similar proposals. The bill allows athletes to be paid from outside organizations for autograph sessions, guest appearances, sponsorships or other events that use their name, image or likeness.
