PARAMUS, N.J. (AP) — Cameron Tringale began the FedEx Cup playoffs with a 66 and a clear conscience.

Tringale decided to disqualify himself from the PGA Championship several days after the final major ended. He was uncertain whether he whiffed a tap-in for bogey on the 11th hole of the final round at Valhalla. Tringale decided to leave nothing to chance, so he called the PGA of America and was disqualified.

DENVER (AP) — Goaltender Jean-Sebastien Giguere is retiring after 16 NHL seasons in which he won 262 games, a Conn Smythe Trophy and a Stanley Cup championship.

The Colorado Avalanche say Giguere made the announcement in Quebec on Thursday while with the Blainville-Boisbriand Armada hockey team. He's part owner of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League squad.

Avs executive Joe Sakic calls Giguere a "top-notch goalie." Giguere served as Semyon Varlamov's backup last season in Hall of Fame goaltender Patrick Roy's first season behind the bench.

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) — Adrian Peterson missed Minnesota Vikings practice for the second straight day, but the team does expect the star running back to make the trip to Kansas City this weekend.

Peterson missed practice on Wednesday and Thursday for what the team called personal reasons. He has not played in the first two preseason games and coach Mike Zimmer hinted earlier that he didn't really see a need to play him much at all for the entire exhibition season.

The Vikings have been giving more work to Peterson's backup, Matt Asiata.
