He has become accustomed to sleeping on the lead at a major championship and has become more comfortable in doing so. The victor of the 2015 Masters and U.S. Kuchar's second straight birdie on the third hole moved him to 6 under for the tournament, tied with Jordan Spieth . Earning a place on the edge of the top 10 heading into the final round of The Open should have been a good sign, one for McIlroy to build on, especially with a favorite venue in Quail Hollow awaiting for the PGA ...
Nevertheless, according to The Sun , having missed out on Danilo to Manchester City , Conte wants Candreva to fill in the gap on the right wing, with the Italian global tipped to provide Victor Moses with serious competition. REPORT: Chelsea have opened negotiations with Italian giants Inter over £23m-rated winger Antonio Candreva. They finished in an unconvincing seventh in Serie A, which has seen them miss out on European football entirely.
However, reports suggest that, shockingly, Benzema refused to say farewell to Morata in an indication of the bad blood between the two players who often had to compete for the coach's attention and a spot in the starting lineup. Antonio Conte was forced to rethink his transfer plans and the Chelsea boss finally strengthened his attacking options on Wednesday after Morata was signed as an alternative to Lukaku.
Immediately afterwards, Conte swooped to sign ex-Real Madrid man Morata for £65m. "We have added a fantastic striker, even at a young age he has won a lot already and we are looking forward to welcoming him to the squad", Conte said of the Spain worldwide.
It's possible, too, that someone can come racing from behind the way Grace did Saturday when he became the first player to shoot 62 in major championship history. Poulter made numbers of par-saving putts to keep his hope alive in the tournament. "And I was like, 'What are you talking about?' Now it makes the day even sweeter".
Spieth separated himself from the field with a third-round 65, matching his score from the first round. Australian Day isn't anxious by the decision to deny players the aggressive approach shot down the 10th fairway. Kuchar was a popular pick to do well at The Open, and it looks like those prognostications are coming to fruition. But Spieth had a tap-in for a birdie of his own, and quickly regained the top spot at 7 under.
Austin Connelly , who grew up in Dallas and shares a swing coach with Spieth, extended his remarkable run with birdies on his last two holes for a 66. He twice made birdies that momentarily tied him for the lead, only for Spieth to pour in birdie putts on top of him to stay in front. "I've had the high and the humbling", said world number three Spieth, 23.
Jose Mourinho has ruled out a summer move for David De Gea from Manchester United to Real Madrid after claiming it is "100 percent" that he stays. "I think you can see he's very focused on Manchester United ". For me, he's the best in the world, so I want to keep him here at United. "They have no chance of being fit for the beginning of Premier League ", Mourinho said.
I'll try to keep those in my head going forward the next couple of days. It would also put Spieth one leg away from the career Grand Slam of all four majors with just the U.S. But it really is just an outside chance, for him and the rest of the chasing pack, after Spieth built on his two-stroke overnight lead to shoot a bogey-free 65 and climb to 11 under par for the championship.
Following 31 scores of 63 in men's majors, Grace became the first man to go lower, shooting an eight-under 62 to etch his name into the record books. It came on a gentle day when Grace said par was more realistically 67 than 70 as the scorecard said.
In the trailer, Bernthal as Frank Castle/The Punisher is seen playing the guitar with his daughter. His upcoming series was teased just yesterday on the official Luke Cage Twitter account. What's it going to change if I'm dead?" In the final shot of the footage, Frank leaves the NYC bathroom in a typical outfit for the comic book character: black hooded sweatshirt, leather duster, and his vest with the Punisher logo.
I had a few friends out. "But again, all it takes is one week for those odds to go back". The 60-year-old, who won the tournament when it was staged on the course in 1998 and is playing his 30th Open, sent his opening drive well wide of the fairway as play started promptly at 6:35 a.m.
But with all of last season's top seven facing European commitments this time round, Mourinho believes this will have an affect on the race to see who is crowned champions. "I'm very pleased, I'm very happy that they have joined Manchester United , they are very good football players and it is not just like that they are here".
Darlow is now one of four goalkeepers at Newcastle fighting for the number one spot with Rob Elliott, Tim Krul and Freddie Woodman all looking to impress manager Rafael Benitez this summer in order to get a regular place in the side. He follows Norwich City winger Jacob Murphy into the squad, with the Under-21 international's signing set to be announced today. A centre-forward to provide competition for last season's top scorer, Dwight Gayle, is said to be the club's next priority.
Spieth's effort was his lowest score in 17 rounds in this event, though a 66 on day three at St Andrews two years ago was better in relation to par . It was Grace who brought The Open 2017 to life earlier in the day, however, with the first ever 62 in Open history. "Last year on Friday at Troon was worse; it came down in sheets", said Spieth.
Jordan Spieth has overcome insane cross-winds, squalls and a 25-minute rain delay to seize the outright halfway lead at the British Open . Unprompted, the 23-year-old two-time major champ said that he would give himself "9s across the board" in terms of grades for his tee balls, ball-striking, short game and, most importantly, putting.
Although Bardet , who finished as runner-up to Froome a year ago, is closer at the start of the day, Froome has admitted it is the ex-Sky rider Uran who worries him more in a battle against the clock. Team Sky's Luke Rowe was the first to complete the course. Froome will be braced for more attacks from his rivals on Thursday, when the riders tackle a 179.5km route from Briancon to Izoard in what is the final mountain stage.
Bardet slipped to third position, 2:20 down on the yellow jersey, with the Frenchman narrowly holding onto his podium place as Spain's Mikel Landa lies 1sec adrift. Tour organizers said tailors working with race sponsor Le Coq Sportif met with Froome at his hotel on Friday evening to take his measurements, in order to make a fitting skinsuit.
The World No.16, who ended Thursday one shot off the lead after a first-round 66, carded eight bogeys in a second-round 77 that saw him fall to three over par at Royal Birkdale . Koepka's preparation is extraordinary but he was in control of his golf ball. The ball came out low, left and neck-y after being mis-hit but carved its way back toward the fairway and bounded to inside 20 feet of the flag.
Midway through the third round, Jordan Spieth still has the same two-shot lead he began the day with. That tends to be advantageous on most courses because it takes time for the stronger wind to show up. The Claret Jug is there for the taking. Garcia was two shots worse off after a 73. The storms arrived about the time he teed off 40 miles per hour wind, rain and a severe drop in temperatures and Woods shot 81.
He said the turnaround had stemmed from "a couple of little mental thoughts" and "a couple of little keys", something "very simple but obviously quite effective over the last 27 holes". But if Fitzgerald's tough love was the turning point, it may be McIlroy's own internal dialogue that saved his title chances. The four-time major victor arrived at Royal Birkdale after having failed to make the cut in three of his past four competitions, and got off to a miserable start with bogeys at five of ...
McIlroy remains in hot pursuit after continuing his spectacular fightback with a superb 68. McIlroy fell out the blocks and was quickly 4-over par for his opening five holes at Royal Birkdale. It definitely helped. It kept me positive. You can play 10 different shots from the middle of the fairway and I think that's so cool. The weather felt like it was going to be a lot worse on Friday afternoon, but the heavy wind on Friday morning actually meant that it was the tougher side of the draw ...
And he did it in atrocious conditions for golf . Here's a look at some of Spieth's highlights from the first round. The world number three is in a three-way tie at the top of the leaderboard with fellow Americans Brooks Koepka , the US Open champion, and Matt Kuchar , but there are plenty of players under par and Spieth, a two-time major victor, knows there is a long way to go yet.
However, the 24-year-old has 53 goals in 110 Premier League games, and once he continues that scoring rate, Jose Mourinho and United fans won't mind a few stray touches here or there. There are no better players to emulate at Old Trafford than Nistelrooy for Lukaku, and he will do well to take his candid advice if he wants to be successful at The Theatre of Dreams.
Pre-tournament pick, Ian Poulter , made the very early running but he was soon hauled in by world number three, Spieth, whose iron-play and putting was superb. Oddsmakers have him at 20-1 to win this week, meaning he's in the unfamiliar position of being a relative longshot. "Anytime you put something on the line like that, I get up for it", he said.
