Brandt Snedeker’s attitude challenged by 74 at Masters

first_img-5 Leaders 1. Jordan Spieth T54. Brandt Snedeker T2. Charley Hoffman -4 To par +1 T12. Phil Mickelson T2. Ernie Els -5 -2center_img -5 T2. Jason Day T6. Sergio Garcia -8 AUGUSTA, Ga. – On Thursday morning, Brandt Snedeker tweeted a quote from author Charles R. Swindoll about attitude.By the afternoon, Snedeker found his own attitude challenged — severely.On a day that began with such promise, Snedeker encountered a five-hole stretch of bad breaks and bad golf on the back nine at Augusta National. The result: an opening 74 that leaves him 10 strokes back of the lead heading into the second round of the Masters.“A day like this tests your attitude. It really does,” he said.Snedeker left the 18th green, signed his scorecard and then went straight to the practice range for an hour of work. Afterward, he sounded more encouraged about what lies ahead than disappointed in what transpired on Thursday.“I’ve done a lot of good work to get to where I am,” he said. “I’m swinging at it really good. I just didn’t get the results. If I keep doing what I’m doing, I’ll be OK.“On a golf course like this, you’re going to have one bad round out of four days. Hopefully, I got mine out of the way early.”Snedeker seems to have taken his recent reading and studies to heart. One of the passages he quoted from Swindoll, author of The Grace Awakening, says:“I am convinced that life is 10 percent what happens to me and 90 percent how I react to it. … We are in charge of our attitudes.”Jordan Spieth shoots 64; new master in the making?Warning: Don’t misinterpret this. Snedeker is not one of those touchy-feely guys who believes a positive attitude will conquer all. He knows the pro golf tour is not all puppies and rainbows. There’s always a young gun waiting for somebody who, say, won the Tour Championship in 2012 to slip up.With that as background, Snedeker admitted his attitude was trending downward in the guts of the round when he lost five strokes to par on Nos. 12-16 as he went from 2-under to 3-over.“I hit a couple of shots left, and that’s a killer on this golf course,” he said. “I didn’t save shots. My chipping was a little bit off. My putting was a little bit off.”His troubles began on the devilish par-3 12th. He spent a couple of minutes on the tee trying to gauge the wind, which tends to swirl at the heart of Amen Corner. He aimed an 8-iron just left of the pin, but a gust caught the ball and it fell into the bunker that fronts the green.”“You never know what you’re going to get there,” he said. “You just pick a club and try to make a good swing. If the wind changes, you just have to deal with it.”After a par on No. 13, Snedeker yanked his second shot left on the par-4 14th. He hit a so-so pitch and compounded the mistake with a three-putt for a double-bogey.“I just made a dumb mistake there,” he said. “I should’ve been lying 15 feet right of that pin. I decided to go at it, and that was a mistake.”Brandt Snedeker welcomed by familiar faceHe three-putted the par-5 15th for a bogey before flying the green on the par-3 16th, where he was fortunate to escape with a bogey.He righted things a bit by knocking it stiff on No. 17 for a birdie. He had a 12-footer for a birdie on the 18th but missed to the right.After an opening 74, it’s all uphill from here. Snedeker needs a solid second round to avoid missing the 36-hole cut. Last year, the cut fell at 148, four shots over par.But he’s not fixating on the cut. He has other things on his mind.“At this point in my career, making the cut at Augusta National is nothing,” he said. “I need to contend. I’m going to go out and be aggressive and try to make as many birdies as possible.“If I can make the weekend, no matter where the lead is, you never know what’s going to happen. It’s that kind of golf course.”And it’s that kind of tournament — one that challenges your attitude. Reach David Climer at 615-259-8020 and on Twitter @DavidClimer. MASTERS -5 T41.

Leonard Fournette carried LSU through MSU’s run defense

LSU won 21-19. Mandatory Credit: Matt Bush-USA TODAY SportsSTARKVILLE – LSU attacked Mississippi State’s strength.The Tiger rushed the ball 47 times in their 21-19 win Saturday night. They averaged 5.7 yards per carry. It equated to 266 yards. MSU hadn’t allowed that many yards to a Southeastern Conference opponent since 2012 when Johnny Manziel shredded the defense. Texas A&M finished with 361 rushing yards.Another Heisman Trophy contending talent ran through Mississippi State on Saturday. Leonard Fournette rushed for 159 yards and three touchdowns.“He’s obviously a very talented back. We missed too many tackles,” Mullen said. “…Part of missing tackles is the guy that’s making you miss the tackles is a pretty good runner. You saw it.”Play VideoPlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration Time 0:00Loaded: 0%0:00Progress: 0%0:00 Progress: 0%Stream TypeLIVERemaining Time -0:00 Playback Rate1ChaptersChaptersdescriptions off, selectedDescriptionssubtitles off, selectedSubtitlescaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedCaptionsAudio TrackFullscreenThis is a modal window.

They supplied LSU with a 14-point cushion that MSU was never able to erase.At halftime Fournette had gained 60 yards. The pounding continued in the second half with a 47-yard third quarter and a 52-yard fourth quarter.“He did his damage where we thought he’d do his damage, not between the tackles but out in the perimeter,” Mullen said. “That’s where he is – size and speed – he’s a better runner. I thought we were pretty stout inside.”Fournette finished with seven carries for 38 yards in last year’s matchup with Mississippi State in Baton Rouge. As a sophomore he totaled seven carries against MSU in the first two offensive series of the game.“I felt like he runs a lot harder than last year,” junior defensive tackle Chris Jones said. “Last year, he was a freshman. He got the kinks out. But he’s a hard runner. He’s a good running back. I told him that.”Behind Fournette, LSU flipped the script from last year’s loss to Mississippi State. The Tigers jumped out to an early 14-0 lead then allowed the rushing attack to provide the offense for the rest of the game.LSU attempted 14 passes Saturday night while starting quarterback Brandon Harris for in only second time in his career. Dak Prescott threw a career-high 52.Prescott finished with 335 yards passing, but MSU netted 43 yards on the ground.Last year, the Bulldogs gained 341 rushing yards on 49 attempts, which more than doubled its 24 passing attempts. The Tigers on the other hand threw for 341 yards, but averaged 2.5 yards per carry on 36 attempts.“I don’t know that we tried to run the ball a lot the second half,” Mullen said. “We tried to comeback. I thought we could throw the ball on them.”Last year, Prescott ran for 105 yards while running back Josh Robinson totaled 197. In two prior games against the Tigers, Prescott eclipsed 100 yards. He finished with minus-19 in the third outing. It’s only the second time the quarterback has been held to negative rushing yards. The only other time came in 2012. Ole Miss stopped the redshirt freshman for a one-yard loss on one carry.“We’re going to watch the film and see some little miscues in some things that didn’t allow us to get into a rhythm running the football,” Mullen said.Mississippi State limited Southern Miss to 102 yards on the ground last week. Forty-four yards came on one carry.LSU had three backs finish with at least 45 rushing yards and average better than 5 yards per carry.Most of the time, LSU coach Les Miles leaned on Fournette.“I think that he is a dominant back, a kind of guy that can make you miss and bring power,” Miles said. “He can be a difference in the game.”Saturday night, he was.Contact Michael Bonner at mbonner@gannett.com.

QPR youngster told to go ‘pedal to the metal’ by Holloway

first_imgSee also:Holloway will give chances to Furlong and DoughtyQPR lose to Tottenham in FA Youth CupQPR complete loan signing of Brighton’s LuaLuaQPR announce new kit maker after Dryworld debacleAinsworth snaps up QPR youngster on loanQPR get second opinion on Caulker and consider loan signing Ian Holloway has warned that Eberechi Eze will need to work on the defensive side of his game if he is to establish himself as a first-team player under him at QPR. The teenager made his senior debut in Saturday’s FA Cup defeat against Blackburn and looked bright before going off with an Achilles injury during the first half. AdChoices广告Holloway regards Eze as a number 10 – an area the manager believes Rangers are overloaded.And with Tjaronn Chery having agreed a move to China, Holloway is keen to introduce a more workmanlike approach in which certain players, including Eze, will have to adapt. “I like his talent – he can produce all sorts of things. But what I’ve got to do is get him in the right blend and balance,” Holloway explained. “Again, he’s a number 10. There’s no such position in my world; you have to learn how to defend, and if you are a number 10 and the ball goes to a (opposition) centre-half you’ve got to go and press it, and he didn’t get that right.“He’s trained (with the first team) a couple of times and I’ve thought ‘wow. He has got unbelievable ability, it’s just about whether can he produce it out here.”Eze, 18, was signed in the summer after leaving Holloway’s former club Millwall.He has impressed for Rangers’ development side this season and the club recently extended his contract. Holloway said: “Millwall let him go, being a number 10, and he’s got a lot to learn defensively, but going forward he’s got all sorts of ability.“I’ve got to teach him the game, because you cannot be a luxury. Mr Chery cannot be a luxury who takes set-plays and gets us things.“In the Championship you’ve got to have everybody doing a shift, pedal to the metal.”  Ads by Revcontent Trending Articles Amazon Shares: with Only £250 You Can Get a Monthly Fixed Income x This Bizarre Photo Caused Mayhem, Try Not to Gasp when You See Why x Easy Way to Generate Extra Income x Last Nights Episode Left Viewers Speechless! x Remember Her?

€40m Arsenal summer transfer being set up, two players out, one…

first_imgOne of the clubs being edged into place in the Sanchez race is Juventus, and Turin newspaper Tuttosport is getting excited. In a big article in their Wednesday edition, Tuttosport say Juventus could raise €40m from two player sales and reinvest that money in Sanchez.The hope would be that Simone Zaza to Valencia is made permanent, and that Bayern Munich take their option on Kingsley Coman, the latter scenario seeming likely.The Turin newspaper believe Sanchez is set to say ‘Goodbye London’ and is looking for a big contract. Juventus have good spending power and may be encouraged to compete on wages if they can get a good fee. Alexis Sanchez: Juventus setting up €40m summer transferThe longer Alexis Sanchez goes without renewing his Arsenal contract, the more transfer claims will be encouraged. There’s a validity in that, because the longer Sanchez goes without a renewal, the more clubs will be enthused to consider signing him in the summer window. Arsenal would scoff at the idea of receiving €40m for Sanchez, but the one year left on the player’s contract is a problem. Should Sanchez decide that Juventus is the place he wants to be then a bidding war would become diluted.Arsenal’s situation with Sanchez is vulnerable and increasingly so. As the months without a renewal go by, baseless rumours will morph into genuine interest and eventually turn into approaches to the player’s entourage. A troubled renewal process is getting to the stage which sees timing slowly turning the difficulty up.Juventus can offer competitive wages, near guaranteed domestic glory, and a good record in the Champions League in recent seasons. The club have built up a very impressive squad, and with the addition of Sanchez it would be further cemented as one of the best on planet football.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this Strategy Game is a Must-HaveForge of Empires – Free Online GameUndoRaid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadEven Non-Gamers Are Obsessed With This RPG Game (It’s Worth Installing!)Raid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadUndo聽多多 Hearmore.asia1969年前出生的香港居民現可免費試戴頂尖的歐洲助聽器聽多多 Hearmore.asiaUndoMisterStocksThese Hilarious Photos Were Captured On The SubwayMisterStocksUndoSingles50Hong Kong: A 40+ Dating Site That Actually Works!Singles50Undo美術寶1對1香港媽媽們注意了,速來領取適合4-12歲孩子的繪畫課,手慢無美術寶1對1UndoDating.comWhere do attractive singles find each other in Tung Chung?Dating.comUndoTheTopFiveVPNEnjoy Netflix Now Without Any RestrictionsTheTopFiveVPNUndo熱門話題生髮率無敵高!96%的禿頭都獲得改善!←這會不會長太多?熱門話題Undolast_img read more

WI eyes series win as historic Day/Night test commences

first_imgThe Caribbean side will need at least a draw to win the test series against a ‘shell shocked’ Sri Lanka side in the historic day/night test in Bridgetown, Barbados starting today. This match will be the first day/night test in the Caribbean and only the 10th of its kind with Sri Lanka winning their sole match and West Indies losing their two outings in the conditions.West Indies currently lead the series 1-0 after winning the first test in Trinidad and holding on for a draw in the second test which was affected by the weather and bad light. Autoplay Autoplay1 of 4Denish ChandimalKeemo PaulShane DowrichShannon GabrielThe home team has seen Shannon Gabriel unsettle the Sri Lankans through brutal fast bowling reminiscent of the glory days of the past while the visitors have been plagued with fitness problems, injuries and not to mention a ball-tampering issue in what could be deemed a horrid return to the Caribbean in 10 years.  By virtue of the ball tampering fiasco, Sri Lanka skipper, Dinesh Chandimal will miss the test as penalty for the ball tampering. He lost the appeal which was held yesterday. Sri Lanka has been heavily dependent on Chandimal as one of their leading batsman who averages 76 in the series.He scored an unbeaten 119 in the first innings of the second test and his batting will be sorely missed.Meanwhile West Indies’ fans have a lot to cheer for with Gabriel averaging just 13 runs per wicket and already getting his best bowling figures as well as 17 wickets in just two matches.  Gabriel has found support in Kemar Roach with eight wickets. With Shimron Hetmyer despite not playing a match in the series heading home due to illness, his replacement, Keemo Paul is a very handy pacer and could be in line for a test debut.Paul was recently named West Indies emerging player of the year and has already featured in the One Day and T20 teams.The 20 year old averages just over 17 and could find himself in the team at the expense of Miguel Cummins who went wicket-less in three of the four innings he has played in the series. Paul could also add depth to the batting as he has proven to be capable, already notching up a first-class century.With the likes of Jason Holder, Devindra Bishoo, Paul and Roach the bottom order looks even stronger should they be needed to spend a lot of time at the crease.Lahiru Kumara has been the stand out bowler for Sri Lanka with 11 wickets and is likely to lead the attack with Suranga Lakmal as the other bowler Sri Lanka will look to in search of 20 wickets to level the series. The batting for the West Indies is also in good form with Shane Dowrich one of three batsman to score a century, while Devon Smith scored 61 in his last innings despite just 28 total in his previous three on his return to the test side.Kraigg Braithwaithe will be pressured to perform with only 100 runs under his belt in the series so far and with only one fifty at this venue, his home, the pressure increases.  Roston Chase averages 77 at Bridgetown, the best amongst West Indies in the squad while Holder has found it better, averaging 30 with the bat and taking 13 wickets in three matches.Apart from Chanidmal, only Kusal Mendis who has scored 238 runs in the series so far has over a hundred runs with Niroshan Dickwella being the other batsman with over 50 runs. The first ball bowls off 15:00h.last_img read more
