Golf: McIlroy closes in on Kuchar, Woods lags at Riviera

first_img Woods was nine shots off Kuchar’s lead, tied for 45th, after a two-over 73 that included a double-bogey and three-bogeys. “I made some bad mistakes out there,” said Woods, who opened with a birdie at the 10th but soon found himself in trouble. “I had a wedge in my hand at 15 and made double there, sand wedge on three and made bogey there. “Three runaway shots with wedges, something I rarely ever do,” added Woods, who was in the fairway with 144 yards to the hole at 15 but found a greenside bunker on the way to a double-bogey. He clawed back two shots with birdies at the 17th and first, but was in another greenside bunker at the third and couldn’t get his seven-footer to save par to drop. Rory McIlroy, making his first start as world number one since 2015, pulled within two strokes of 36-hole leader Matt Kuchar Friday as Tiger Woods’s hopes of a landmark Genesis Invitational win dwindled. Northern Ireland star McIlroy fired six birdies in a four-under par 67 at Riviera Country Club, to share second place on seven-under 135 with Americans Harold Varner and Wyndham Clark, who both signed for 68s. Northern Ireland’s world number one Rory McIlroy is two shots off the lead heading into the third round of the US PGA Tour Genesis Invitational at Riviera Country Club Kuchar, who started the day with a three-shot lead, posted a two-under 69 that put him at nine-under par 133.Advertisement Loading… Two more bogeys in the next three holes further dimmed his chances of breaking Sam Snead’s record of 82 PGA Tour victories this week.Woods matched the record with a win at the Zozo Championship in Japan in October, and finished tied for ninth in his only other start since at Torrey Pines.The record would be extra sweet this week at Riviera – the course where Woods made his tour debut as a teenager, but where he has come up empty in 12 prior starts.“I’m going to have to make some birdies this weekend,” he said.McIlroy, playing Riviera for just the fourth time, birdied all three par-fives and while he hit just four of 14 fairways he avoided major trouble.– Playing the angles –“Most of the day I did the things that I needed to do,” he said. “I missed a few fairways coming in and it makes it very difficult to control your spin and get any spin onto the ball coming into these greens.“But I managed it well, played the angles, got a couple of really nice up-and-downs towards the end – a nice two-putt on 18.”Kuchar, however, said his lack of accuracy had him on the defensive all day.“Wasn’t driving it nearly as accurate as I did the first day,” said Kuchar, who made the first of his two bogeys at the par-five first.After an 18-foot birdie putt at the third he rolled in a 20-footer from the fringe at the fifth, but a bogey at the seventh saw him make the turn even for the day.Back-to-back birdies at 10 and 11 proved enough to give him a two-shot cushion.American Matt Kuchar acknowledges the crowd after making a par on the 12th green on the way to the halfway lead in the US PGA Tour Genesis Invitational at Riviera Country ClubRead Also: Golf : Woods mulling approach from proposed Premier League“Two-under was an awfully good score for the way I drove it today,” Kuchar said. “I better find more control.”Nineteen players were within five shots of Kuchar’s lead.Australian Adam Scott fired seven birdies in his seven-under 64 to share fifth place on 136 with South Korean Kang Sung and Americans Vaughn Taylor and Russell Henley.Sung and Taylor posted 67s while Henley carded a 69.Spain’s Rafa Cabrera Bello and American Chez Reavie were tied on 137, while world number three Jon Rahm of Spain headed a group of 10 on 138 that also included defending champion JB Holmes, Justin Rose and Dustin Johnson.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 center_img Tiger Woods says ‘bad mistakes’ were costly in a disappointing second-round 73 at the Genesis Invitational at Riviera Country Club Promoted ContentThe 18 Most Visited Cities In The WorldA Hurricane Can Be As Powerful As 10 Atomic BombsThe Models Of Paintings Whom The Artists Were Madly In Love WithWho Is The Most Powerful Woman On Earth?The Very Last Bitcoin Will Be Mined Around 2140.

Mourinho lauds Tottenham youngster Oliver Skipp

first_img Loading… Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho has praised youngster Oliver Skipp and admitted the ambition is to make him a regular first-team player in the future.Advertisement 20-year-old defender Tanganga is another success story to come out of the academy and he’s been able to become a regular in the starting XI in recent weeks under Mourinho.“He (Tanganga) is already in the dressing room, with Skipp. Both fantastic kids, both kids we believe in a lot. The difference with Japhet is that his opportunity appeared, but Skippy has not had the opportunity to play many matches. But both are in the first-team dressing room and our objective is to make them Tottenham players for many years,” Mourinho said, as quoted by Football.London.Skipp has played 18 first-team games in his young career so far and has shown enough to suggest he can have a big future.But given the amount of options in the centre of the park within the Spurs squad, it may have been better to send the midfielder out on loan in January.Read Also:Mourinho backs Alli for apologising after coronavirus jokeThey sent Kyle Walker-Peters to Southampton on loan in January for the rest of the season to help his development and star centre-forward Harry Kane is a prime example of how effective the loan system can be.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Promoted Content7 Worst Things To Do To Your PhoneWho Is The Most Powerful Woman On Earth?Which Country Is The Most Romantic In The World?Couples Who Celebrated Their Union In A Unique, Unforgettable WayDisney Princesses Reimagined As “GoT” Characters14 Hilarious Comics Made By Women You Need To Follow Right Now7 Ways To Understand Your Girlfriend BetterHere Are The Top 10 Tiniest Mobile Phones On The Planet!2020 Tattoo Trends: Here’s What You’ll See This Year5 Of The World’s Most Unique Theme ParksYou’ve Only Seen Such Colorful Hairdos In A Handful Of AnimePortuguese Street Artist Creates Hyper-Realistic 3D Graffiti The 19-year-old midfielder is a product of the Spurs academy and has been around the senior group this season.But he’s only played in six games across all competitions, with no starts yet in his three Premier League appearances.He’s a ball-playing defensive midfielder that is extremely efficient in possession and has plenty of composure, as well as being an enforcer that breaks up play.Mourinho has spoken about rising talent in the same breath as teammate Japhet Tanganga, stating that they both have big futures ahead of them.last_img read more

Barcelona confidence unaffected by fan frustration, says Setien

Read MoreThe 10 Best Secondary Education Systems In The World18 Cities With Neverending Tourist-Flow7 Universities In The World With The Highest Market Value Messi’s 24th goal of the season, and fifth in four games, was enough to save Barca, despite a drab display that threatened to bring more disappointment following last weekend’s loss against Real Madrid.As tension grew inside Camp Nou, some of the home fans whistled to express their dissatisfaction, which Jordi Alba then seemed to confront when celebrating a late goal, ruled out for offside, by putting his fingers in his ears.“We have not lost confidence in what we are doing,” said Setien. “The fans sometimes don’t expect the opposition to restrict you but you have to take into account that Real Sociedad are a great team.”On his own reaction, Alba said: “I respect the fans but the fans have to respect me. Nobody likes to be whistled, and even less after 15 minutes at 0-0.”Madrid drop to second in the table but can restore their one-point advantage at the top by winning away at struggling Real Betis on Sunday night.Their Clasico victory at the Santiago Bernabeu put the pressure back on Barcelona, whose response was hardly resounding, with Setien’s side ultimately reliant on VAR to spot a handball in the 81st minute from Robin Le Normand.The lack of appeal and the chunk of play that passed before VAR intervened made the decision all the more surprising and la Real’s players were still shaking their heads at the final whistle.Yet the win was all-important for the Catalans at the end of another week dominated by headlines surrounding problems off the pitch.Setien said he had apologised to the squad after his assistant Eder Sarabia was recorded launching into a number of foul-mouthed rants against his own players during the game against Madrid, even if there were chants in support of Sarabia before kick-off.“When the club is in a moment of weakness, these kinds of things come out,” said Gerard Pique. “It’s normal for an assistant coach, with the adrenaline high, to express himself. We see it as normal.”– Braithwaite causes trouble –Barcelona created a handful of openings during the first half and Martin Braithwaite, making his first start, was at the heart of most of them, with his willingness to run in behind offering a good alternative in attack.Twice Messi sent Braithwaite free early on but his lung-busting runs ended in tame shots. When he did hit one into the net, he was pulled back for offside.Messi created a chance of his own by hunting the ball down in the corner before retrieving a chipped Sergio Busquets pass, only to scuff the finish.The chances came more frequently in the second half as Barca turned the screw. Messi slid one past the post and then sliced another over from Antoine Griezmann’s cushioned header.Ivan Rakitic’s drive was parried, Pique’s header too straight and Alba’s ball across the face of goal just too far ahead of the diving Rakitic.As chances went begging, la Real sensed an opportunity. Nacho Monreal flashed wide and Alexander Isak hammered over.But just as the tension was growing, Barcelona were leant a helping hand, with VAR reviewing a handball from Le Normand and referee Juan Martinez Munuera persuaded to point to the spot. Messi made no mistake.Atletico Madrid will hope for a tighter contest against Liverpool in the Champions League on Wednesday than their frantic 2-2 draw earlier on Saturday against Sevilla.Joao Felix looked as sharp at the Wanda Metropolitano as he has done all season and completed a four-minute comeback for Atletico after Alvaro Morata’s penalty cancelled out Luuk de Jong’s opener for Sevilla. Read Also: Messi named La Liga Player of the Month for FebruaryBut Lucas Ocampos levelled with another penalty at the end of a pulsating first half, again with the help of VAR after a foul by Kieran Trippier, who took treatment after a heavy challenge from Nemanja Gudelj in the second half.Trippier was able to finish the game and coach Diego Simeone insisted afterwards his discomfort was due to cramp.The draw will be more gratefully received by Sevilla, who sit third in La Liga and two points ahead of Atletico, who stay fifth after missing an opportunity to close the gap.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Quique Setien insisted Barcelona have not lost their confidence, despite needing a dubious late penalty, converted by Lionel Messi, to scrape past Real Sociedad 1-0 on Saturday inside a frustrated Camp Nou.Advertisement Loading… last_img read more

Defensor on 1st 100 days: Good despite challenges

first_imgGov. Arthur Defensor Jr. PNA Defensor requested a P100-millionsupplemental from the Sangguniang Panlalawigan to fund a loan scheme foraccredited farmers’ cooperatives. “We want to create opportunities forour people not only to survive but to live good, comfortable lives,” addedDefensor. This was how Gov. Arthur “Toto”Defensor Jr. described his first 100 days in office. ILOILO – Good despite the manychallenges. Defensor said he was thankful thatdengue cases have started to dwindle. From Jan. 1 to Sept. 21, theProvincial Health Office (PHO) recorded 19,929 dengue cases with 77 deaths. “It was a good 100 days despite damo challenges,” he said. District hospitals overflowed withdengue patients resulting to shortages in rooms and beds. One big challenge his administrationfaced was the surge in dengue cases. As of Thursday last week, Oct. 10, thePHO reported a drop in dengue patients admitted in district hospitals – 180, ofwhich only 21 were new cases, said Defensor. “It’s not easy but we are doing well,”he told Panay News. Defensor, a lawyer, succeed his fatherand namesake, Gov. Arthur Defensor Sr. Another test to Defensor’s leadershipwas the adverse effects of the Rice Tariffication Law on small farmers ofIloilo. A deluge in imported rice resulted to a drop in local rice prices. Ensuring the efficient delivery basicsocial services is a given, he said, but “those who have less in life shouldhave more in law, and more in the administration of the province of Iloilo.” Then the threat of the African SwineFever (ASF) emerged. To protect the province, Defensor issued Executive OrderNo. 159 temporarily banning on hogs, pork, pork products and by-products fromASF-hit areas. Defensor officially started histhree-year term on July 1. He said good governance won’t be enough; hisadministration would also focus on social justice. Defensor declared a dengue outbreak onJuly 5 and 18 days after placed the province under a state of calamity. The cooperatives must use their loanto buy rice from small farmers at premium prices, said Defensor. One way of delivering social justice,he said, is achieving food security in the province and creating an environmentconducive to the growth of businesses and other economic activities that createemployment for the Ilonggos. According to Defensor, his first 100days in office was instructive. Eight hours of work each day is not enough, hesaid, but he managed his time well. Achieving social justice, however,would be difficult without everyone’s support, he said, thus he appealed foreverybody’s cooperation. “I cannot do it alone. Theadministration of social justice needs more than just me.  It needs us all,” he stressed./PNlast_img read more
