Grace required a par at the last to shoot a 62, the lowest recorded in any major. Jason Day finished with a 5-under 65 to pull him at even par (210) after 3 rounds at Royal Birkdale on Saturday. Most of the day the weather was pleasant, sunshine and light wind, although light rain arrived when the leaders had three holes to go. Spieth's first shot, a 3-wood, found the left rough, while Kuchar hit his down the middle of the fairway.
Spieth shot a five-under-par 65 on Saturday, and ended the day with a three-stroke lead over his compatriot Matt Kuchar , with Canadian Austin Connelly and American Brooks Koepka both six shots off the lead. "When I got up to the green I was happily shocked, and I thought, 'This is where I normally capitalize and make a scrappy birdie, '" Spieth said. The two-time major champion teed off Sunday under sunny skies and with a three-shot lead over Matt Kuchar , his playing partner.
Froome kept his lead despite crossing the line in Salon-de-Provence over 12 minutes behind Boasson Hagen, who finished the longest stage in five hours, six minutes and nine seconds. "I think it's probably his best win". As such, they allowed a 20-man break - also including another ex-Team Sky man in the shape of Ben Swift - to go more than 10 minutes up the road.
He played the last five holes in 5-under-par. He was somehow able to get up-and-down to only bogey the hole, while Kuchar missed a birdie putt and ended up parring to lead by a single stoke. A 1-under 69 just didn't cut it on a day of flawless conditions when Branden Grace was shooting 62 _ the lowest ever score at a major _ and Jordan Spieth and Matt Kuchar were shooting 65 and 66, respectively, in the final group.
United States of America midfielder Clint Dempsey (L) battles El Salvador's Darwin Ceren (R) during their CONCACAF Gold Cup quarterfinal match at Lincoln Financial Field on July 19, 2017. Asked for his reaction to the decision after the US defeated Costa 2-0 on Saturday, Altidore responded: "Look, it's unfortunate". Luckily, the USA players didn't seem too injured after the match, and Altidore was able to joke about the whole situation, Major League Soccer reported .
Today is the day I have to say goodbye. The Serbian spent seven years at the Etihad Stadium, a period that saw the Club win two Premier League titles, an FA Cup and two League Cups. City want a permanent deal this time, and Monchi would be willing to make a transfer happen. Kolarov is a two-time victor of the Premier League with City, also adding the FA Cup to his achievements in 2010.
The Republican politician weighed in on the subject as he was making an appearance as a fill-in host on WFAN sports radio, just one day after news broke that Simpson would be set free on parole from a Nevada prison after spending almost a decade behind bars for armed robbery.
Panama , meanwhile, are in the game after finishing second in Group B, behind the United States but above Martinique and Nicaragua. TV: Fox Sports 1 (In Portland: Comcast 408/723) and Univision (In Portland: Comcast 31/802). It was just a sloppy game overall. A repeat of that versus Costa Rica would hurt the Americans. With Canada - an effective world (1: 1). Underdog teams are easily tempted to drag the favorites down to their level in search of a more even fight.
Antonio Conte praised Michy Batshuayi after the striker scored twice in Chelsea's win against Arsenal in China. But Conte suggests he won't be missed and said: "One player is not important". Based on what he successfully showed while at Juventus , Morata can play alone as a point striker, can also partner a second striker should the team need to play twin strikers and he has the faculty also to participate in a disciplined team defensive network as a striker.
Talk of a possible Neymar move to Paris Saint-Germain refuses to disappear. According to the report, last year's Copa del Rey winners have highlighted the Brazilian as a replacement for Andres Iniesta , who is still waiting for a new contract at the club despite the fact that his current deal expires next summer.
Two-time major victor Jordan Spieth said his opening round in the British Open at Royal Birkdale on Thursday was one of the finest he had ever produced in a major after he took a share of the clubhouse lead with a five-under par score of 65.
The potential trade partners for the Cavs as far as we see them are on the following pages. The talk of the offseason has been Carmelo Anthony and where he might be willing to accept a trade as the Knicks look to reboot. Kyrie Irving has requested a trade out of Cleveland . The report says that the Knicks prefer to send Carmelo Anthony and future first-round picks to the Cavaliers for the guard.
Kaur's sensational hitting in Thursday's second semi-final at Derby sent Australia packing with a 36-run loss and set the alarm bells ringing for the hosts, who are eyeing their fourth World Cup triumph. He was a good cricketer, but due to some circumstances he could not reach where he wanted to in the sport. "We're fine now." Given that it was her brilliant knock that put India in the finals of the World Cup and defeat the Aussies who thrashed them convincingly in the group stages, we ...
Sale (12-4) allowed four hits and struck out nine to push his major league-leading total to 200. "I've not been around a pitcher that's had those kind of totals". "I think any player, when they're on the field defensively, there are other ways to contribute to an overall win. Thankfully there's padding there". "It's cool.
Morata became both Chelsea's record signing and the most expensive Spaniard in history when he swapped Real Madrid for west London in a deal worth around £70 million. The club recognised me and the job I did with the players last season. "I have not received offers from either Juventus or Inter, but offers have come from overseas and are also well-suited, a club needs to understand if the player likes them or not".
Daley had an advantage of 5.7 points over the Chinese diver going into the last of six rounds. Tom Daley's eight-year wait to reclaim his individual world diving title is over after winning the 10m platform, ending the World Aquatics Championships in extraordinary style in Budapest.
Really nice to be bogey free. Suddenly he enjoyed a two-shot lead - the former Masters and US Open champion's advantage was back to one after a bogey on 14, but a bounce-back eagle extended his lead to three before a three- putt bogey on 16 gave his chasers hope.
From the moment he birdied the first to a huge cheer from the excited crowd that followed his every step around the links, he was reminding everybody else, as well as himself, what all the hype over the years had told us McIlroy was about. "They're both huge rounds for very different reasons", McIlroy said. "(I've) just got to be patient with myself and understand that it's been a while since I've been in a position to contend other than the Byron Nelson this year.
Mr Trump wrote in one of his 10 messages: "While all agree the U. S. President has the complete power to pardon, why think of that when only crime so far is LEAKS against us". "There is NO basis to question the integrity of Mueller or those serving with him in the special counsel's office", said former attorney general Eric Holder.
Spieth turned a bogey or worse into an unlikely par by chipping in from just short of the 10th green. "That was awesome", were his next words to his caddie. Strong, steady winds reaching 30 miles per hour will emerge from the Irish Sea, heavy rain will fall from the sky and temperatures will dip into the 50s.
England's Ian Poulter , runner-up here to Padraig Harrington in 2008, and current US Open champion Brooks Koepka are both three-under. "If every golfer in the world plays their absolute best, Rory's best is better than anyone's". "But when you post a score like I did today, you're kind of out of the tournament already". "I doubt you'll see a dominance like that maybe ever again in the game".
Conte said: "I think he made a good step (over the last three years) and now he is one of the best strikers in Europe". He's a good striker, a player with the right prospects for Chelsea . Physically he is a good player and for sure I need to work with him to ask him what I want from his job in the game. Before now, Chelsea have always preferred a goal poacher with a lot of strength to bully defenses once the ball is flung into the box from the attacking midfielders, making it easy for the ...
It was around that time, midway through his first round, when McIlroy's caddie, JP Fitzgerald, took matters into his own hands. Yesterday he carried on where he left off as he went out and attacked the Southport course. He said: "The wind was as strong as I thought, but how we didn't get wet". I saw a lot of quality out there which was good. The quality shone all the more after what the snarling sky over the Irish Sea chose to throw over here, and what that meant even to people playing ...
Weidman then lost to Yoel Romero by knockout and to Gegard Mousasi by technical knockout in a controversial stoppage last April in Buffalo. Weidman won the middleweight title in 2013 when he knocked out Anderson Silva, and then went on to defend his title against Silva, Lyoto Machida, and Vitor Belfort .
Mendy's arrival would push City's spending up to just over £175m for the window, with "three of four" more to come according to an evidently greedy Guardiola . He played 39 matches in his first season in the principality after arriving from Marseille last summer. Mendy has been high on their wanted list since impressing in Monaco's two-legged victory over City in the Champions League's round of 16.
Their opponents, England , have been the stand-out team after stumbling at the beginning of the tournament. Having finished seventh in the last edition of the Women's World Cup , India will fancy their chances of emerging champions of this edition when they face England in the final at Lord's in front of a sellout crowd here on Sunday.
Having already claimed the 2015 Masters and 2015 U.S. Open , Spieth can win the third leg of the career grand slam . South Africa's Branden Grace carded the first 62 in men's major championship history as Jordan Spieth took a step closer to his own place in the record books at Royal Birkdale.
Jordan Spieth shelters from the rain under an umbrella during the second round of the British Open on Friday. In any conditions, Birkdale is not a course that leads to low scoring, certainly not like what Henrik Stenson had a year ago at Royal Troon when he set the major-championship record of 264 in his brilliant duel with Phil Mickelson .
But four birdies coming home dragged him back to one over, six behind the lead set by American trio Jordan Spieth, US Open champion Brooks Koepka and Matt Kuchar , and with the weather set to worsen on Friday the 28-year-old Northern Irishman is confident he can turn things around.
They had a one-shot lead over Paul Casey and Charl Schwartzel on a day that started nasty and ended with 39 players breaking par. But JP kept me positive out there, so that was very much appreciated. "I$3 was really happy with my performance last week at the Scottish Open", he said, having finished joint-fourth there. "And I felt that out there today, just because of the lack of self-belief I had going out".
And I don't think the feeling for him [towards Madrid] is very, very good. Senior figures at United have been confident in their ability to keep the Madrid-born De Gea, believing that Real lack the finances this summer to launch a bid. Mourinho still hopes to add a further two players to his squad before the end of the summer transfer window, despite describing the market as "very hard".
At five-over, Spieth and Koepka were expected to confront the worst of deteriorating weather later in the afternoon, leaving Kuchar well placed to be the halfway leader. Poulter, seeking to become the first Englishman to win the British Open since Nick Faldo at Muirfield in 1992, also handled the tough conditions with aplomb as he shot 70.
The trio finished a shot ahead of England's Paul Casey and South African Charl Schwartzel. Justin Thomas , sporting a classic collar-and-tie, produced golf to complement his stylish outfit and an eagle at the 17th lifted him alongside Poulter , and they were later joined by English journeyman Richard Bland, rising Canadian star Austin Connelly, Charley Hoffman and Rafa Cabrera Bello.
It was his first missed cut at an Open since 2012. Five of the past six winners have been 39 or older and so what better time and place for Kuchar, who has won $40 million on tour, to shed his tag as highest earner without a major. England's Ian Poulter , runner-up in the 2008 Open on this course , Spaniard Rafael Cabrera-Bello and Americans Justin Thomas and Charley Hoffman were among a group of players a stroke further back following rounds of 67.
With American Jordan Spieth the clubhouse leader on -6 the cut was set at +5. Often one half of the draw - early or late starters on the first two days - suffers more than the other. "It won't stop me from trying to win it, though". Spieth will be paired Saturday with Kuchar, a Ryder Cup teammate who hasn't won a major in 46 tries.
