    (CNN)Without the adrenaline that comes from playing in front of fans, athletes have had to find other ways to motivate themselves during 2020. Some have turned to their faith without supporters to urge them on. Others have relied on individual strategies, such as artificially generating their own emotions, to get themselves pumped up for the big stage. For Kim Sei-Young, on a deserted Aronimink Golf Club course in Philadelphia in October, with nothing but the trees and the wind to keep her company, she found motivation in a more rhythmic source. The catchy tones of "Dynamite" by her compatriots and super boy band BTS provided an inspirational tune for Kim as she dominated the Women's PGA Championship, eventually securing the first major win of her career by five shots. For someone who had previously had a reputation for being very successful on the Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA) Tour without...
    President Trump said he's the winner of two swing states that major media networks declared President-elect Joe Biden won in the election. Trump said he "easily won" the states of Michigan and Pennsylvania, citing election fraud as the reason Biden was projected to be the winner of both states. "Nobody wants to report that Pennsylvania and Michigan didn’t allow our Poll Watchers and/or Vote Observers to Watch or Observe. This is responsible for hundreds of thousands of votes that should not be allowed to count," Trump tweeted. "Therefore, I easily win both states. Report the News!" Twitter promptly marked the president's claim in his tweet as "disputed," linking users to fact-check articles that state there is "no evidence of widespread voter fraud in the 2020 US election." Nobody wants to report that Pennsylvania and Michigan didn’t allow our Poll Watchers and/or Vote Observers to Watch or Observe. This is...
    Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden was preparing to declare himself president-elect in a Friday night speech in his hometown Wilmington, Del., but he switched up the plan after his campaign had already set up balloons and celebratory fireworks. Fox News, citing a local law enforcement source in Wilmington, reported that Biden won’t claim victory unless major networks declare him winner by 10 pm. That may or may not happen as absentee ballots cause delays in vote-counting after the Tuesday election. The source told the news channel that if networks declare Biden winner by 10 pm, he and running mate Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) will speak outdoors by 11:30 pm. If the major networks do not declare a winner by 10 pm, Biden will appear alone indoors in the 11 pm hour. It’s unclear what he would say to reporters. Biden pulled ahead of President Trump in crucial swing states...

    Oracle appears to have come out on top as part of a bid to tether TikTok with an American company, making the app—a frequent target of President Donald Trump’s—linked to one of his biggest supporters in the tech industry. Hide Oracle’s Chairman Larry Ellison is one of the few people in Silicon Valley who have been outspoken in supporting Trump. Hide Late Sunday, the Wall Street Journal reported that Oracle would become TikTok’s “trusted tech partner” moving forward, and that the deal between ByteDance, the Chinese company that owns TikTok, and Oracle would not be an outright sale. It’s unclear what exactly “trusted tech partner” specifically means and whether the deal will satisfy Trump’s imposed deadline for selling U.S. operations of TikTok to an American buyer. However, Ellison’s relationship with Trump may help the deal go through. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said on Monday that the...

    (CNN)Four-time major winner Brooks Koepka has called an end to his 2020 season due to injury. The former world No.1 golfer withdrew from the upcoming Northern Trust tournament at TPC Boston, Massachusetts, citing persistent hip and knee problems. The Northern Trust is the first leg of the FedEx Cup playoffs -- the culmination of the PGA Tour -- and only the top 70 players qualify for the next stage. So, with Koepka currently sitting 97th in the standings, his 2020 season is over.
