A few decades later, Drew Gordon became one of college basketball’s best power forwards, starting his career at UCLA before transferring to New Mexico and dominating the Mountain West Conference on his way to a pro career. To say basketball is in Aaron Gordon’s bloodlines may be a bit of an understatement.

He managed to bring Tiger Woods into the conversation at a major he’s not even playing. Kaymer opened with a short birdie and rolled his way to a second straight round of 5-under 65 — this one without a bogey. He set the 36-hole scoring record at 10-under 130 and left the rest of the field wondering if the 29-year-old German was playing a different course, or e...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="#license-580668122014-06-13T22:18:03.342-06:00" id="#license-2014-06-13T22:18:03.342-06:00"> Copyright 2013 The Associated Press.
