INDIANAPOLIS – Meg Mallon, who made the clinching putt when the Americans won the Solheim Cup, was released from a hospital Wednesday after being treated for a rapid heart rate.

Mallon, 42, was taken by ambulance to The Heart Center of Indiana after closing ceremonies Sunday afternoon when her heart rate increased to as many as 290 beats per minute.

Dr. Richard Fogel said she was diagnosed with supraventricular tachycardia, a cardiac rhythm disturbance that results in a racing heartbeat. Mallon went through a procedure Tuesday in which heat distributed through a catheter destroyed a small piece of tissue where the rhythm arises.

Fogel, who lives a mile from Crooked Stick and was in the gallery when Mallon won her singles match, said she is expected to make a full recovery and should be able to return to the LPGA Tour next week in Los Angeles.

Ratings up 100 percent for U.S. Open’s men final

NEW YORK -The ratings for Roger Federer’s win over Andre Agassi in the U.S. Open men’s final Sunday were up 100 percent from last year, which saw the lowest-rated championship match ever.

Federer’s 6-3, 2-6, 7-6 (1), 6-1 victory Sunday over Agassi earned a 6.2 overnight rating with a 12 share for CBS. That’s up from the 3.1 with a 16 that Federer’s 2004 win over Lleyton Hewitt received. The rating is the percentage of all homes with TVs, whether or not they are in use. The share is the percentage of in-use televisions tuned to a given show. Overnight ratings measure the 55 largest TV markets in the United States, covering nearly 70 percent of the country.
