fox5sandiego.com

LA JOLLA, Calif. — Australian Jason Day parred the second hole of a four- man sudden death playoff today to win the $6.3 million Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines Golf Course.

Day began the round among five golfers two shots behind co-leaders Harris English and J.B. Holmes. He earned a spot in the playoff with English, Holmes and defending champion Scott Stallings by shooting a two-under-par 70.

Day and Holmes prolonged the playoff with birdies on the par-5 18th, while English and Stallings were eliminated with pars.

The playoff then moved to the par-3 16th.

Holmes took the first shot, hitting his drive over the green.  Day’s drive landed next to the pin and rolled out to 15 feet. Holmes bogeyed the hole, while Day two-putted for the par and his third victory on the PGA Tour and first since last year’s Accenture Match Play Championship.

ProWomen's Cycling

I think my heart-rate has just about slowed down after Saturday’s race.  It was AMAZING!!!  It feels like after most of the women’s 2014/5 World Cup season races, I was saying « best race EVAH! » but Worlds took it to another level yet again, one of those races with continual changes at the front, duels for the win and for third, and….  If you don’t believe me, here’s the replay, and below the highlights…

This Shimano video made me very happy – love that post-race hug!

Unofficial Networks

Congratulations to Hannes Reichelt. This is his run that took home gold yesterday at the Super G World Championships in Beaver Creek, CO.  If Bode had stayed on his feet the result may well have been different but when you attack the course like he does, you leave yourself exposed to all kinds of complications…he leaves it all on the hill and thats why we love him.

Miller underwent surgery and is done for the worlds. Bode spoke out via Twitter after the operation… « Feeling lucky since things could have been way worse. »

Get well soon!

Final day of FIS JWSC 2015 Almaty. Relay races

nzerk

There were only two competitions on final day, Ladies 4×3.3km relay and men 4x5km relay. That didn’t took too much time. All major competitions were already completed, results were verified, points added, medals awarded. Yet I saw more people than during any other day, and were louder than during any other day.

Stephen Hendry- A snooker great

stevenb96

Midway through the 1980s, a decade dominated by snooker greats such as Ray Reardon, Steve Davis and Dennis Taylor, it would have been incredibly difficult to imagine anyone challenging such players for major titles during that era- let alone a boy that was yet to turn 18. Stephen Hendry emerged onto the world snooker scene during the 1985 season as the youngest ever player to turn professional at the age of just 16 and claiming his first professional title in the Rothman’s grand prix just 2 years later.

Born in South Queensferry, Edinburgh, on 13 January 1969, Stephen Hendry first began to play snooker at the age of 12 after his dad bought him a child-sized snooker table as a Christmas present in 1981. Quite remarkably, just two years later he was crowned the Scottish under 16 champion. An appearance on the BBC show Pot black was soon to follow…
