By Peter Rutherford SEOUL (Reuters) - The road to U.S. LPGA Tour riches is one well traveled by South Korean golfers but the domestic KLPGA circuit is looking to stem the annual exodus by boosting prize money and world ranking points on its increasingly lucrative schedule. A host of major winners, not to mention Park In-bee's Rio Olympic triumph, have cemented Korea's status as the gold standard of women's golf, but there is no doubt the local tour loses a little sparkle when top players set off for the LPGA. The last couple of seasons have been particularly rough on the KLPGA with the loss of several top drawcards including Chun In-gee, the most popular player on the tour for years.

The Philadelphia Eagles brought Minnesota back to earth with a thud on Sunday, handing the Vikings their first defeat of the NFL season and spoiling ex-Eagle Sam Bradford's return to Philadelphia. Bradford, traded from the Eagles to the Vikings before the season-opener, was harried all day by an Eagles defense that forced his first three turnovers of the season and keyed Philadelphia's 21-10 victory.
By Luciana Lopez and Emily Stephenson CHARLOTTE, N.C./NAPLES, Fla. (Reuters) - Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton called Donald Trump a "sore loser" on Sunday because of his refusal at their debate last week to commit to accepting the results of the Nov. 8 election. Clinton, a former secretary of state, said Trump's comments were more consistent with what dictators in non-democratic countries might say about their opponents. "To say you won’t respect the results of the election, that is a direct threat to our democracy," Clinton told a rally at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte.
