PYEONGCHANG, South Korea (AP) — President Donald Trump has congratulated the U.S. women’s hockey team on winning Olympic gold. Trump tweeted his congratulations “on behalf of an entire Nation.” The American women defeated Canada 3-2 today to win the gold medal at the Pyeongchang Games.

PYEONGCHANG, South Korea (AP) — The United States will compete for a gold medal in men’s curling after knocking out their Canadian opponents 5-3 in a tense semifinals showdown at the Pyeongchang Olympics. The U.S. victory is a remarkable turnaround for a team that hasn’t made the Olympic podium in curling since the 2006 Turin Games, when they won a bronze medal. The US team will face Sweden, which beat Switzerland in the other semifinal.

PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. (AP) — The Tampa Bay Rays have traded All-Star designated hitter Corey Dickerson to the Pittsburgh Pirates in exchange for relief pitcher Daniel Hudson, minor league infielder Tristan Gray and cash.

He’ll be assigned to Double-A Trenton.

PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. (AP) — In windy conditions where par felt like good work, Tiger Woods got just that at the Honda Classic in Florida today. Alex Noren was even better.

He wound up with an even-par 70.
