He might not be the most consistent golfer on earth, but he moves the needle more than anyone else now playing, and he's the one golfer who can inject adrenaline into any major with a string of birdies. But, yes, he's had to do it a few times and he's never afraid to do that. McIlroy has been struggling on the greens in recent weeks and even resorted to using three different putters during one tournament at the Travelers Championship , but he is a lot more comfortable with the short stick ...
That's all fine and well, but what should have Giants fans feeling good that their former World Series MVP is going to be his old self again is the fact that the first thing he did after putting pen to ink was head back to his old stomping grounds: The AT&T Park batting cages next to the Giants dugout.
Japan's world No. 2 Hideki Matsuyama is also four-under after shooting a 66 in his third round. Spieth was 6 under through two rounds after an opening 65 followed by a 69. "That's just what you have to do to try to win The Open Championship ". "That's just what I've always done". "We certainly had a great round of golf", Kuchar said.
Chris Weidman pried his way back into the conversation in the Ultimate Fighting Championship middleweight division. The action took place inside Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum in Uniondale, New York. After momentarily climbing back to his feet, Gastelum was sent right back down, courtesy of an outside leg trip. They tied up and Weidman pushed his opponent against the fence.
The gallery will be there for the Englishman, on every hole, with every shot. Spieth was among seven players who shot 65 or better. "I'm always more nervous playing in these four (major) tournaments than I am anything else", McIlroy said.
But, for the moment, it is especially important to prepare for the season. Dybala, 23, has emerged as one of the candidates to replace Neymar at the Nou Camp should the deal go through. "I've spoken with some players who've had the chance to play here, and they have all had a really good experience". Catalunya Radio believed the move is "95%", based on "an authorized source of the French club".
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.
