Playing with a heavy heart

Shaun Micheel shot his second straight 65 Saturday to move to 8-under-par for the tournament, currently 6 shots behind leader Justin Rose.
The 2003 PGA Championship winner, Micheel has played well of late a tie for fourth place in the St. Jude's Classic and a tie for 22nd at the U.S. Open after being a co-leader after the opening round. Micheel is doing it while his mom battles cancer.
Donna Michhel's lung cancer has spread to her liver and brain among other places. Herson said her last chemotherapy session is Tuesday - then it is about making her comfortable for the rest of her time left.
