perth_map

I know hes up to fight everyone so lets make it happen. "That's what makes me a world champion". "I really do fight for my fans because I owe it to them for all of the support". The term "daring to be great" is too often thrown around. It's an easy fight to make. Unless Easter crumbles early, I can not see a way for Garcia to get this contest over with inside the scheduled distance. Read More »

A deafening roar reverberated around the course when he sunk a long birdie putt on the fourth to move to within three of the lead along with playing partner Francesco Molinari .

Bernal was running a close second to Alejandro Valverde at the Tour of Catalonia before crashing on the final stage. It then settled for a few seasons.

NBA.com's David Aldridge provided more clarity on the situation Monday, detailing how Toronto gambled on the DeRozan-Leonard trade.

Open result will sting for a little bit, says Woods

Jordan Spieth may not have lifted the Claret Jug on Sunday but the 2017 Open champion feels back to his best after a productive week at Carnoustie. Tiger Woods plays his second shot from a bunker on the eighth hole. For them, he is the sport. One of those instances occurred at Carnoustie's 13th hole Sunday, as Molinari was not only dealing with one of the most feared links in the world, but also the presence of Tiger Woods , who brings along a kind of commotion that is unnerving at ...

But the 32-year-old's dream of upstaging the four-time champion Froome to become the Tour's first Welsh victor is being challenged on all fronts. "I just can not believe it".

British Open 2018 Tiger Woods updates

perth_map

The 42-year-old's hopes of a remarkable comeback after a turbulent spell in his life - during which he has encountered off-course problems with the break-up of his marriage and a run-in with the law - were alive and well on the back nine. And the last two winners came from well back, Paul Lawrie starting the final round 10 shots behind in 1999 and Padraig Harrington being six off the lead in 2007, with both men eventually winning in a play-off.

Molinari won the British Open title at Carnoustie on Sunday after a final round of 69 saw him finish on eight under par. But perhaps it's no coincidence that once Woods took the lead for the first time, he frittered it away nearly immediately. Read More »

Woods' history of domination in the majors doesn't include many comeback stories, but since he has resumed his pursuit of Jack Nicklaus' record, it's worth noting that a 46-year-old Nicklaus trailed by six shots at the midway point of the 1986 Masters, his 18th and final major title. Read More »

perth_map

World number eight Rory McIlroy was an angry golfer after his British Open title charge stalled on Carnoustie's devilishly hard closing holes on Saturday.

Tiger Woods speaks out after stunning third-round Open Championship performance

But Woods admitted he was happy with his round overall. The last player to make a successful title defence was Ireland's Padraig Harrington , who coincidentally won at Carnoustie in 2007 and again 12 months later at Royal Birkdale. It took him to five-under par for the tournament and inside the top-10 with leaders still out on the golf course. But the three-time Open champion did endure some tricky final holes. Read More »

Not since Woods in 2006 has the defending champion gone into the final round with at least a share of the lead. On a British Open leaderboard full of big names, there was only one star.

I’d rather lose than dope, claims Anthony Joshua

From his perspective, after making a meteoric rise in recent years to become the sport's biggest global star, wasting time with words is below him. That's the attitude.

Alisson completes Liverpool move in world-record deal

I've seen other games where I could see the way Klopp had the team playing. "I actually think now they ( Liverpool ) have got a chance, they can win the league", Saunders told talkSPORT . It is hard to divorce goalkeeping statistics from the defences they play behind, so it is not worth stewing over clean sheets or goals conceded. Klopp's squad situation isn't as bad, but he's still agreed with Mourinho and pointed out the introduction of the worldwide competition "the Nations League" ... Read More »
