In Germany, Chancellor Angela Merkel said her country is ready for Brexit, even without a deal to smooth the transition. She, too, was willing to offer a guarantee if those arrangements couldn't be agreed.

That was good news for J.T. Poston, the victor of the Wyndham Championship earlier this month, who ended up walking to the course after his auto was blocked in by emergency vehicles.

With time running out, he thanked the emergency response in an update: "I'm going to make it. Turns out my clubs acted as a fire retardant".
