Movie review: The visually astounding ‘Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse’ manages to improve on 2018’s first impressive chapter
Just as you did when its predecessor hit the big screen, you stare in wonder at the visual mastery on display in the new animated film, “Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse.” Like 2018’s acclaimed “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse,” the second chapter is more than a comic book come to life. It’s akin to a million lovingly create paintings being mashed together in the world’s greatest ...

Viktor Hovland endured another near miss at a major at the PGA Championship. The 25-year-old finished in a tie for second behind winner Brooks Koepka following a 2-under 68 that left him at 7 under for the tournament. Hovland's chances at catching Koepka disappeared when a shot out of a fairway bunker on the 16th hole plugged into the lip. He double-bogeyed the hole but salvaged a runner-up finish when he birdied the 18th.
Brooks Koepka is a major champion again. Gone are those injuries that led to doubt whether he was still part of golf's elite. Koepka won the PGA Championship at Oak Hill by closing with a 67 and winning by two shots over Scotties Scheffler and Viktor Hovland. He now has won the PGA Championship three times. And it was his fifth major title.
American lore is full of tales of the lone cowboy, the rugged individualist who will do what needs to be done and ride off into the sunset. In reality, loneliness in America can be deadly.
The PGA Championship was plenty tough at rainy Oak Hill and so was Brooks Koepka. He shot 66 and takes a one-shot lead over Viktor Hovland and Corey Conners going into the final round. Koepka had the low score for the second straight round. He still needed some help from Conners. The Canadian lost the lead when his bunker shot on the 16th plugged into the lip and led to double bogey.
Scottie Scheffler is part of a three-way tie for the lead going into the weekend at the PGA Championship. Oak Hill over two days has provided a little of everything — freezing temperatures, warm wind and rain. It also has unlimited possibilities on the weekend. Nine players are under par. Eighteen players are separated by five shots. Bryson DeChambeau is two back. Brooks Koepka ran off birdies on rain-softened greens for a 66 to get within three. Rory McIlroy was stunned to be only five behind the way he's hitting the ball. Rain is in the forecast for Saturday.
Bryson DeChambeau is the leading the frost-delayed PGA Championship. It's been more than a year since DeChambeau was the incredible bulk who tried to overpower golf courses. Now he's slimmer and feels healthy. That much is evident with his 66 at Oak Hill. That gives DeChambeau a one-shot lead over Scottie Scheffler and Corey Conners among the early starters. The first round is unlikely to finish on Thursday because of a two-hour delay for frost in the morning. DeChambeau warmed up nicely. He hasn't won in more than two years. He still swings hard, but he's keeping it in play.
