Aug. 10

1900 — The first Davis Cup is held with the United States beating Britain, 3-0.

1938 — McLin Hanover, driven by Henry Thomas, wins the Hambletonian Stakes in straight heats.

1949 — Ezzard Charles knocks out Gus Lesnovich in the eighth round at Yankee Stadium in his first world heavyweight title defense.

1949 — Miss Tilly, driven by Fred Egan, wins the Hambletonian Stakes in straight heats.

1975 — Jack Nicklaus wins the PGA Championship for the fourth time with a two-stroke victory over Bruce Crampton and Tom Weiskopf.

1980 — Jack Nicklaus wins his fifth PGA Championship with a record score of 274, seven strokes ahead of Andy Bean.

1995 — Gwen Torrence, the 100-meter champion at the World Championships, wins the 200 meters, then is disqualified for running out of her lane.

1995 — Michael Bradley, a third-year pro without a tour victory, shoots a record-tying 63 in his first PGA round to lead the PGA Championship.

1996 — Cigar’s bid for a 17th straight victory ends when longshot Dare and Go passes the super horse in the upper stretch and pulls away to win the Pacific Classic at Del Mar. Cigar, 3 1-2 lengths behind Dare and Go, fails to break a tie with Citation for the record winning streak by a North American-based horse this century.

2002 — Pat Day breaks the career money record for a jockey, riding With Anticipation to victory in the $500,000 Sword Dancer Handicap at the Saratoga (N.Y.) Race Course. With the $300,000 in prize money, Day’s horses have earned $264,580,968 in his 29-year career. Chris McCarron, who retired last month, had the previous record of $264,351,679.

2007 — Tiger Woods matches the major championship record with a 63 in the PGA Championship. Woods misses a 15-foot birdie putt on the final hole that would have given him the record.

2008 — In Beijing, Michael Phelps begins his long march toward eight gold medals by winning the 400-meter individual medley in 4:03.84 — smashing his own world record. The U.S. women’s 400-meter freestyle relay team, anchored by 41-year-old Dara Torres, takes the silver behind the Netherlands’ Olympic record effort. It’s the 10th medal of Torres’ career.

2008 — Ireland’s Padraig Harrington rallies from three shots behind to win the PGA Championship, closing with a 4-under 66 at Oakland Hills to become the fourth player to win the British Open and PGA in the same year. Harrington, the first European to win consecutive majors, closes out Sergio Garcia with a 15-foot par on the 18th for a two-shot victory.

2012 — The United States wins the women’s 4×100-meter track relay in a world-record time of 40.82 seconds to give the Americans their first victory in the event since 1996. Tianna Madison, Allyson Felix, Bianca Knight and Carmelita Jeter combine for a perfect trip around the track that ends a string of disappointments for the U.S. in the marquee relay. Their final time cut more than a half-second off the old record of 41.37 run by East Germany in 1985.

2012 — Maurice Purify catches a record seven touchdown passes and the Arizona Rattlers win the Arena Bowl with a 72-54 win over the Philadelphia Soul.
