August

PGA Championship – Martin Kaymer wins PGA Championship following controversy surrounding Dustin Johnson. Johnson birdied 16 and 17 to take a one-shot lead with one hole to play. Johnson bogeyed the final hole to apparently tie for the lead, but after further review, it was decided that on the final hole, he had “grounded his club” in a bunker. He was given a two-stroke penalty and finished out of the playoff in a 3-way tie for fifth place.

September

Heisman Controversy Reggie Bush, currently with the Saints, announced that he would forfeit his 2005 Heisman Trophy after his involvement with marketing agents while playing at USC led to severe NCAA penalties against USC. The school had already returned its copy of Bush’s Heisman and the football program cut ties with Bush.

October

Post-Season No-Hitter – In Game 1 of the National League Division Series, Roy Halladay no-hits the Cincinnati Reds in the Phillies’ 4-0 win. Halladay becomes only the second pitcher to throw a no-hitter in postseason play, after Don Larsen‘s perfect game in Game 5 of the 1956 World Series.
