Ryder cup 4 ball rules
Sal Maiorana Rochester Democrat and Chronicle Published 3:19 AM EDT May 17, 2019 When Peter Hatala, then a 24-year-old University at Buffalo dental school student, arrived at Oak Hill Country Club for Saturday’s play in the 1995 Ryder Cup Matches, he immediately became aware that the day held tremendous potential. “They were selling Guinness drafts at like 7:30 in the morning,” Hatala recalled. “It was my first Ryder Cup experience, but that was fantastic to enjoy the American-European rivalry with a pint of Guinness at 7:30 in the morning, for crying out loud.” A great start indeed, but it couldn’t come close to how the day finished for Hatala about 11 hours later when he mischievously managed to procure, at the 18th green, one of the best viewing spots of anyone in attendance for what was arguably the most memorable stroke ever played at the venerable East Course. “It was incredible,” Hatala — who had snuck inside the ropes … [Read more...] about 1995 Ryder Cup: Corey Pavin’s unforgettable chip-in at Oak Hill
Paul Daugherty Enquirer Sports Columnist Published 11:30 AM EDT Oct 3, 2018 We might find out later today what plans Cincinnati Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis has this Sunday for Vontaze Burfict. We know already what plans the NFL has for him. Burfict is coming off a four-game suspension for PED use. He’ll return to a league that would like to legislate guys like him out of professional existence. From stepping on a head to twisting ankles to diving at Ben R’s legs to decapitating Antonio Brown, Burfict is not the face the NFL wants to include in the new world of what some might call quasi-flag football. Don’t think the league won’t be looking. I used to think asking Burfict to play with less abandon would lessen his effectiveness. Take the beast out of the man, the man becomes ordinary. I don’t think that anymore. One, many of Burfict’s egregious plays had nothing to do with his abandon. They were just cheap. Ask Cam Newton, Greg Olsen and … [Read more...] about Daugherty: Can Bengals’ Burfict play within the NFL’s new rules?
By Tom Hoffarth | [email protected] | Daily NewsPUBLISHED: September 6, 2017 at 3:08 pm | UPDATED: September 7, 2017 at 4:43 pm There’ll be no more mystery for the masked maven of L.A. golf history. In a summer season in which the United States Golf Association decided to spotlight some of the Southern California otherwise exclusive gems, the otherwise reclusive Los Angeles Country Club North Course, bordered on one side by Sunset Boulevard, finally gets its Gloria Swanson close-up, whether its dress-code conscious members are buttoned up on the idea or not. Often depicted as a secret-gated garden in a highly visible area of Beverly Hills, surrounded by Century City and Holmby Hills and with a secluded turnoff to the entrance off the busy Wilshire Boulevard that barrels right through the middle of it, LACC North allows itself to be put into play for the pomp and circumstance of the 46th Walker Cup. Amateur detective work shows the site, ranked No. 23 on Golf Digest’s … [Read more...] about Walker Cup gives L.A. Country Club its first close-up in years
Click here for live leaderboardCARNOUSTIE, Scotland - The British Open wasn't at "Car-Nasty" this time around - especially for Sergio Garcia. Still trying to remove that unwanted title of best player never to win a major, Garcia took advantage of charitable conditions at Carnoustie to shoot a 6-under-par 65 Thursday in the opening round. Tiger Woods was right in the thick of things again, sinking an improbable 90-foot putt on his way to a 69 that put him solidly in contention for his third straight Open title. And 18-year-old Rory McIlroy provided a glimpse of the sport's future with a bogey-free 68. "I'll take a 68," the teenager from Northern Ireland said, "and I'll take three more to finish." This links along the North Sea, considered one of the toughest tests in major championship golf, was toned down after it haunted the world's best in 1999. That Open left the enduring image of players trying to hack out of waist-high rough and Jean Van de Velde standing barefooted in the … [Read more...] about Garcia shoots 65 at ‘Car-Nicely,’ Tiger lurking
