PHIL MICKELSON stood in the hallowed halls of Merion's clubhouse, just feet from where he teed off 4 hours earlier, and was asked to describe the feeling of finishing second in the U.S. Open for the sixth time. "It's very heartbreaking," Mickelson said. "I feel like this was my best chance on a course I loved. " Merion loved Mickelson back. But it was his putter that betrayed him. Here's a look at walking all 18 holes with Lefty, during a round that was as sideways as it was up and down: 3:14 p.m.: With well more than $1 billion net worth serenading Mickelson with "Happy Birthday" from Merion's members' tent off the first tee, Phil plants his tee in the ground as the only player in the U.S. Open under par for the tournament.

DeSean Jackson, who has built a career on creating highlights, has lived much of his life in front of a camera. The by-product is a new documentary, DeSean Jackson: The Making of a Father's Dream, compiled from thousands of hours of footage taken by his brother, Byron Jackson, since Jackson was a child. "At first, being young, I used to always tell him to stop filming me," Jackson said. "But [Bryon] used to tell me, 'One day, this is all going to be needed.' " Available Sunday for Father's Day on inDemand, the film is ostensibly about DeSean Jackson.

BEIRUT - Syrian troops pushed forward with their offensive against rebels Saturday, capturing a suburb near the Damascus international airport as the U.S. warned that the alleged use of chemical weapons by President Bashar al-Assad's forces and the involvement of the Iranian-backed militant group Hezbollah in the civil war threaten to put a proposed political settlement out of reach. The United States and Russia have been pressing for a peace conference to end Syria's civil war in Geneva, but prospects for that have been dampened after a series of regime battlefield victories and hardened positions by both sides as the death toll from the more than two-year-old conflict has surged to nearly 93,000.

Sergio Garcia is already something of a polarizing figure, and his comment about Tiger Woods this week, in which he said he'd serve his rival "fried chicken" if he came over for dinner, hasn't endeared him to fans at Merion. "Look at him - he's walking behind [Rickie] Fowler so he doesn't get booed," one man scoffed Saturday as Garcia made his way to his first tee-off of the day at the 11th hole. (Fowler, who's playing in Garcia's group, received nearly as much attention for his birdie on the 13th hole as he did for his colorful attire - a bright yellow shirt and electric-blue pants.)

With the demise of the gritty, old-fashioned cop show Southland , TNT's dramatic lineup has been left with a gaping hole that may be impossible to fill - especially if the cabler's new procedural, King & Maxwell , is any indication. Starring Jon Tenney ( The Closer ) and X-Men 's Rebecca Romijn, it premieres at 10 p.m. Monday. It's one of three new basic cable shows, including Sinbad and Primeval: New World , a pair of family fantasy adventure series on Syfy that premiere Saturday at 9 and 10 p.m. respectively.

Sam Hinkie's tenure in Houston was never about Sam Hinkie, he'll tell you. It was really about the system. Now that Hinkie has become the new general manager and president of basketball operations for the 76ers, the question is: Can he bring that system to Philadelphia? Will Hinkie use the same methods he employed as executive vice president of basketball operations for the Rockets? Or will he do things his way, emphasizing some stuff the Rockets did and ignoring others? "I think we just need to be opportunistic about the things that come along," Hinkie said.
