Durant’s movie debuts in OKC

Basketball: Kevin Durant is going from representing the red, white and blue to walking the red carpet.

Durant was the star as his movie “Thunderstruck” premiered in Oklahoma City on Sunday night. It opens in other theaters Friday.

Durant strolled down a red carpet in a black T-shirt, grey vest, white jeans and black sneakers to answer questions about his acting skills instead of the amazing shooting ability. Durant said the film was an opportunity to show there’s more to him that simply being a basketball player.

Fox rallies for U.S. Amateur win

Golf: Steve Fox made an 18-foot birdie putt on the 37th hole Sunday, completing a remarkable underdog run to win the U.S. Amateur at Cherry Hills in Cherry Hills Village, Colo.

The 21-year-old Fox, from Hendersonville, Tenn., was 2-down with two holes to play against Michael Weaver of Fresno, Calif., before rallying to force the deciding extra hole.

Fox, like Weaver, survived a 17-for-14 playoff to qualify for the 64-player match play field. Fox entered match play as the No. 63 seed.
