Round 4 recap
In the final round of the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals Classic from Walt Disney World Resort, Charlie Beljan shot a 3-under 69 to win his first PGA TOUR event.
Norwegian strawweight Celine Haga should have won her Invicta FC debut just before the bell rung at the end of the third round Saturday night, but despite rendering opponent Amy Montenegro unconscious with a choke, Haga lost the fight via decision. Seconds before the bell sounded, Haga applied a choke and appeared to have Montenegro knocked out. The referee did not stop the fight, however, and it was ruled that Montenegro became unconscious after the bell - meaning the fight would go to the scorecards. Montenegro earned the victory via a unanimous decision, as all three judges scored the fight 29-28. A number of fighters tweeted in disbelief at the decision. Don't agree with that. If your out
Tom Brady wants you to know he put the Houston Texans to sleep on Saturday night. Brady posted the cartoon after the Patriots’ 34-16 playoff win over the Houston Texans on Saturday night. It’s an odd tradition the New England Patriots quarterback seems to have going on his Facebook page.
Back during the Winter Meetings, Orioles general manager Dan Duquette said that the Orioles weren't interested in signing free agent slugger Jose Bautista because "our fans don't like him," but it seems that might not have been 100 percent true. Bautista has been sitting around unsigned for long enough this offseason that he could likely be had at a bargain price by now, so it would be really stupid for the Orioles to totally ignore him, especially based upon the fan base's feelings of a player who used to play on an intra-division rival. You know all those Orioles fans who hate Bautista? Right now the Orioles' designated hitter to start the season would be someone like Trey Mancini or Joey Rickard.
Bill Belichick stood, as he always does after Patriots homes games, stone-faced at the interview-room podium late Saturday night wearing a pair of jeans and an expression that told you he’d rather be locked in a closet with his ex-wife. His Patriots had just dispatched the flawed Texans, 34-16, in an AFC divisional playoff game to advance to their sixth consecutive AFC Championship game, a remarkable accomplishment that should have had the venerable coach euphoric. Yet there was angst on the face of Belichick. Because there always is. But this time, that familiar look of disdain was fake, because the perfect night had just unfolded for Belichick, who had to be beaming on the interior of that
John Daly + Country Music Star Jake Owen = Magic. OK, not exactly a newsflash, but a reminder before we show you this video. Both are onsite this week at Tranquilo Golf Club in Lake Buena Vista, Fla., for the Diamond Resorts Invitational, a combination charity event that includes PGA Tour Champions and LPGA players as well as celebrities. Daly is a noted musician, actually having released his own albums. Bob Dylan’s “Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door” is undoubtedly among the songs he’s performed the most. So naturally, when Daly and Owen decided to perform together in a concert at the Diamond Resorts Invitational, that was the song of choice. And this duet was magical… Awesome. But was it better than
A third NFL team in a year might be on the move. Following in the steps of the Rams and Chargers, the Raiders are set to file relocation papers to move from Oakland to Las Vegas, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. Long anticipated as a distinct possibility, the move will become official in the coming days once the Raiders file relocation papers, Rapoport indicated.
Latest Update... Jan. 15 | 4:15 PM The Mets are looking to acquire two prospects in exchange for Jay Bruce, reports CSNPhilly.com's Jim Salisbury. According to Salisbury, the Phillies are interested in Bruce but are wary of dealing their prospects as they rebuild. Previous Updates and Backstory... Bruce is aware of rumors that the Mets may be looking to trade him, which is expected to happen once the team re-signed Yoenis Cespedes, he told NJ.com's Matt Ehalt. "I don't expect anything from anybody. It's a business and they should do what's best for the team," Bruce told Ehalt. "I would love to come back, start fresh and have a full season in New York. I think it would be a blast. It's a great
ESPN SportsNation host Michelle Beadle is calling for someone to knock Grayson Allen out? It’s no secret that Duke’s Grayson Allen is probably the most hated college basketball player in America right now. According to Michelle Beadle of ESPN someone needs to do something about this and knock the Blue Devils’ guard out.
UFC Fight Night: Penn vs. Rodriguez saw lightweights Joe Lauzon and Marcin Held battle in the co-main event. In the end, Lauzon disagreed with the scorecards ... for a fight that he won. Lauzon tagged Held with a right hand over the top early. Held tried to take Lauzon down but ate a series of elbows to the side of the head that had him hurt. Lauzon briefly attacked an arm and then backed out of Held’s equally dangerous ground game. Held was able to take Lauzon down midway through the opening round. The former Bellator contender advanced to side control. Lauzon took his time and wall walked back to his feet. Held slipped on a spinning backfist and got drilled with a right hand while on his back
The offense has led this team all season long and simply could not afford a slow start. After going field goal, punt, punt, the Cowboys offense was dynamic the rest of the day -- scoring 28 points on their final six possessions. But the hole proved to be too deep. Dak Prescott was impressive all day, including a host of third-down conversions that kept the team alive. Ezekiel Elliott was as advertised as well, dominating on the ground. In the end, it seemed the game might have required one less field goal and one more touchdown. DEFENSE: C- All game long, it felt like the Cowboys were chasing Aaron Rodgers around, trying to come to a different conclusion than any of Green Bay's defensive opponent
Clemson's national championship seems to sparked a fire in Columbia, at least inside the football offices of South Carolina coach Will Muschamp. Muschamp sent a mass two-word text message to Gamecock players after Deshaun Watson's game-winning touchdown according to Summerville High School head coach Joe Call, who confirmed to The Post and Courier he heard about the note from former players and current Gamecocks Zack Bailey and Chandler Farrell. "Game on." : Steve Spurrier Jr. sheds light on HBC's exit at South Carolina The Tigers' first national title in 35 years capped Clemson's redemption year and was the storybook ending Dabo Swinney envisioned when his interim tag was removed as head coach
Ever wondered how good today’s PGA Tour stars would be if they used old equipment? Well, thanks to Rickie Fowler and his coach Claude Harmon III, we can get an idea. And here are his stats alongside video of him testing the persimmon driver. As you can see, Rickie’s clubhead speed drops about 3mph with the older clubs — almost certainly because the older model is heavier — and combined with the lack of technology elsewhere on the club, contributes to about a 10 yard loss on his average drives. Though, considering the number below is padded with almost 20 yards of roll, it’s probably a fair estimation that loss would be greater in competition.
For a journeyman such as the 132nd-ranked Polansky -- his average prize money per year entering 2017 was a shade under $70,000 -- pocketing $37,500 gives him breathing room in the next few months, if not longer. "I've never really had to think in my career, 'OK, if I don't win this match, I can't play,'" Polansky told CNN. "It's never been that bad but it's always a bonus when you have these weeks and get a big paycheck and you have some comforts for a few months. "At least you feel like you've earned something as a professional tennis player and as a pro athlete whereas I feel if my ranking was between 200 and 250 the rest of my career, things would be a bit different. Like, 'I've been grinding
With a thrilling Sunday's worth of action coming to a conclusion, we have four teams remaining in the hunt for the Lombardi Trophy and, rather terrifyingly, only three football games left this season. It's a little trope-ish to start to wonder about the legacy of each team and the players involved before the Super Bowl matchup is even set, but there's a remarkable number of quality teams and storylines up for grabs at the moment. So let's take a gander at the importance of the next three weeks for the four teams remaining, in order of their Super Bowl odds. There's not that much left for Bill Belichick and Tom Brady to achieve. They are secure in their places in history at this point, having
With the football world's eyes on Arlington, Texas this weekend for a premier NFL playoff matchup between Green Bay and Dallas, much of the pre-game conversation is on the man set to announce it — Joe Buck, who remains one of the most hated sports broadcasters on television. Fans loathe the Fox play-by-play man so much, in fact, that they created a petition to ban Buck and on-air partner Troy Aikman from announcing Green Bay Packers games. SEE ALSO: The San Diego, er, Los Angeles Chargers epitomize the rotten scam that is pro sports "This is a petition to get Joe Buck and Troy Aikman banned from announcing/commentating on the Green Bay Packers," the petition reads. "On behalf of the Green
Jeremy Lin missed his 28th game this season — and his own Bobblehead night. When informed the Nets were giving away Bobbleheads in the likeness of his former guard, Houston coach Mike D’Antoni quipped: “With the hairdo? Can [they] change the hairdo any way they want?” As the Knicks coach during Linsanity, D’Antoni looked back on that time fondly. “It wasn’t kind of fun. It was really fun. As a coach, it was fun doing it. Was really proud of him and what he’s done; and it couldn’t happen to a better person. It goes deep. That’s why you coach, for moments like that and people like him,’’ said D’Antoni, adding that Lin’s injury has hamstrung the Nets. “That’s your brains, and he’s the one who’s
National Signing Day is approaching quickly. Some college football prospects have already enrolled at their new schools for the spring semester, and the 2017 players who haven’t, can put pen to paper for next fall on Feb. 1. We’ve reached the point where the vast majority of the country’s top 2017 prospects are already verbally committed to some school or another. Most of those commitments will stick, though not all will. This post is a rundown of the 11 highest-rated prospects who don’t have a current verbal commitment to any school. The players featured here are ordered by their ratings on the 247Sports Composite, which aggregates industry player evaluations. SB Nation Recruiting’s Bud Elliott
CHICAGO -- Don't tell Chicago Cubs slugger Kyle Schwarber he can't catch, but ultimately he knows his position is mostly in the outfield where he'll return to action in 2017 after recovering from a serious knee injury last season. "I'm not stupid," Schwarber said on ESPN 1000 in Chicago on Friday. "We have a really good catcher up here. We have Willson (Contreras) and we have Miggy ( Miguel Montero). I can contribute in a different way. I don't have to be the guy that throws out runners. But I can guide a pitcher through the game." The Cubs and Schwarber have yet to sit down and plan out his spring, but the 23-year-old has every intention of reporting with pitchers and catchers next month when
Michail Antonio sends a cross into the box that finds Andy Carroll who connects with an overhead kick and scores to give West Ham a 2-0 lead over Crystal Palace.
With every passing week, Dallas Cowboys rookie quarterback Dak Prescott seems to get better and better. While having a rookie fourth-round draft pick emerge as one of the best young signal callers in the National Football League is undoubtedly a great thing for “America’s Team,” it also signifies the end of the Tony Romo era in Dallas. When you consider Romo’s lengthy injury history, bloated contract (he’s scheduled cap hit for 2017 is $24.9 million), and diminishing physical ability, Then it’s clear that the Cowboys will have a hard time justifying keeping Romo on their roster beyond the 2016 season if Prescott continues to perform well and win games — even if the 36-year-old is one of the best players in franchise history.
In what should have been the prime of his career, J.B. Holmes spent almost three years in various forms of injury rehabilitation, after two brain surgeries and a broken ankle. Did you finish the round?
Shelby Rogers thoroughly dominated the No. 4 player in the world, Simona Halep. A teary-eyed CoCo Vandeweghe battled nausea to outlast another top-20 veteran, Roberta Vinci. And the grande dame of the women's tour, 36-year-old Venus Williams, refused to cede the spotlight for at least another match at the Australian Open, beating Kateryna Kozlova in the first round of her 73rd career Grand Slam tournament, an Open-era record. It's been a fast start for many of the 32 Americans in the men's and women's singles draw in Melbourne — both the old guard and the unproven youngsters of the next generation. Ten won their first-round matches on Monday, with several yet to play at night. The power-hitting
Things got heated on Sunday between Real Madrid and Sevilla in La Liga. Playing for the third time in a span of two weeks, Real Madrid was awarded a penalty kick after Sergio Rico took down Dani Carvajal in the box in the second half, and Cristiano Ronaldo went to take it. But before that, Sevilla's Vitolo tried to mess with the penalty spot by kicking up some of the paint and grass. Ronaldo didn't like that, so he threw the ball at him and hit him. He then escaped punishment and put away the penalty kick. Talk about everything going your way. Real gets the penalty kick, gets in a cheapshot and scores a goal. As for Sevilla, it couldn't have gotten much worse.
American speed queen Lindsey Vonn finished 13th on her return from injury as Austrian Christine Scheyer claimed a shock maiden victory in Sunday's World Cup downhill on home snow at Altenmarkt-Zauchense. The 22-year-old Scheyer benefited from a quickening piste for the later starters to clock 1min 21.15sec and finishing 0.39sec ahead of Liechstenstein's Tina Weirather, with American Jacqueline Wiles completing the podium, at 0.54. "I was fast in training, but this is amazing," said Scheyer, who started with bib number 25.
