RRichard Baldotto of the many swings fame has finally hit on one that seems to work consistently and managed to top the list with his second forty-two points for the week.  Remarkably for Les Cobban, forty points was only good enough for second place on this difficult course.  Third went to Neil Carter on thirty-nine with Keith Norman and Richard Mohns filling the minor places.At the presentation we heard some bad news that one of our members, Eddie Kelly, was struck down with a serious illness while visiting Pattaya and had to be shipped back to the Emerald Isle for treatment.  We are advised that he is now on the mend and everyone at the Bunker Boys wishes Eddie a speedy and full recovery, and look forward to seeing him back on the golf course again soon.last_img read more

South Africa wins 1st test vs England after 4th-day collapse

first_imgEngland’s batsman Rory Burns bats on day four of the first cricket test match between South Africa and England at Centurion Park, Pretoria, South Africa, Sunday, Dec. 29, 2019. (AP Photo/Themba Hadebe)Centurion, South Africa (AP) — South Africa won the first test by 107 runs with a day and a bit to spare on Sunday as England fell away quickly after dreaming briefly of another miracle chase.England was 121-1 overnight facing a target of 376, raising faint hopes of a Headingley repeat, when Ben Stokes led the English to one of test cricket’s most memorable come-from-behind wins in the Ashes series against Australia in August.But South Africa struck twice in the first session of the fourth day at SuperSport Park, bided its time waiting for the new ball after lunch, and then ran through England taking the last six wickets for 46 runs in 12 overs.England was all out for 268 and lost nine wickets for 147 on the day. “We needed that,” said South Africa captain Faf du Plessis, referring to a terrible year for South African cricket that ended on a much-needed high.South Africa had lost its last five tests and had rushed in a new coaching team led by Mark Boucher to stabilize a struggling ship less than two weeks before the start of the England series.Behind the scenes, South African cricket is in turmoil with the chief executive of the national board suspended on allegations of misconduct and fellow executives resigning in protest at his leadership.South Africa was desperate to turn it around, at least on the field.Newcomer Anrich Nortje led the South African bowling attack with the key wickets of opener Rory Burns for 84 and England captain Joe Root for 48 in his 3-56.Nortje was playing just his third test.Spearhead Kagiso Rabada wrapped up the England tail for his 4-103, clattering into Stuart Broad’s stumps to end it before tea.There are three more tests to come in the series, with the next in Cape Town starting on Jan. 3.England showed signs of fight despite a contagious flu-like illness that had quickly worked its way through the squad and support staff in South Africa. At least 10 players fell ill in the buildup and during the game.Fast bowlers Broad and Jofra Archer, allrounder Stokes, Root and wicketkeeper Jos Buttler all played but were sick at stages. Broad, Archer and Stokes recovered enough from their illnesses to play, although Broad was in bed for nearly a week in the buildup to the test and Stokes left the field on the first day with dehydration. Root and Buttler got sick during the test, missed periods of play, and were put in quarantine at the ground at one point to try and stop the spread of the bug to the other players.

But credit to everyone, they stood up, tried to put in the best performance, and at no stage have they let anyone down.”Burns inspired hope that England might get the 376. But Burns added just seven runs to his overnight score of 77 at SuperSport Park despite batting for nearly an hour on the fourth morning. Tied down by South Africa front-line quicks Rabada and Vernon Philander, he lashed out at a short ball from Nortje — Nortje’s second of the day — and lobbed a catch to Rabada at mid-on.Stokes arrived with England needing 218 more runs — the same equation as when he strode in at Headingley — but the parallels disappeared when he chopped a delivery from spinner Keshav Maharaj onto his stumps to go for 14.England’s hopes effectively ended with Root’s nick off Nortje to leave the tourists 232-6.When James Anderson, playing his 150th test, a record for a bowler, walked in as the last man, he shared a joke with long-time bowling partner Broad and they both smiled widely.Their last-wicket stand lasted four balls but England appeared surprisingly positive in defeat.“I think pretty much everyone has been ill now, so hopefully that’s out of the way,” Root said. “Hopefully that’s the end of it and we can bounce back strong.”last_img read more

Happy times for Tiger Woods heading to a Ryder Cup

first_imgSAINT-QUENTIN-EN-YVELINES, France (AP) — Tiger Woods paused on his walk toward the 18th green at Le Golf National and threw his head back in laughter. These are happy times for Woods, regardless of whatever Bryson DeChambeau said to cause such a reaction Tuesday. Spectators watch above as Tiger Woods of the US plays from the 1st tee during practice at Le Golf National in Guyancourt, outside Paris, France, Tuesday, Sept. 25, 2018. The 42nd Ryder Cup will be held in France from Sept. 28-30, 2018 at Le Golf National. (AP Photo/Francois Mori) Now if he can get that to translate in the Ryder Cup.For all his amazing feats in golf — 80 victories on the PGA Tour, the most recent on Sunday at the Tour Championship after returning following a fourth back surgery that threatened to end his career — Woods has been on only one winning team at the Ryder Cup. That was nearly 20 years ago and required a record comeback on the final day. His own record is 13-17-3, a product of being on six losing teams.“Looking back on my entire Ryder Cup career, that’s not something that I have really enjoyed and I’ve really liked seeing,” Woods said. “I’ve played a lot of matches. Of those seven previous Ryder Cups, I’ve sat out one session. … My overall Ryder Cup record, not having won as a player since 1999, is something that hopefully we can change. We haven’t won as a U.S. squad here in 25 years on foreign soil. So hopefully, that will change this week, as well.”Woods used to get defensive about his mark, pointing out that no one could recite the Ryder Cup record of Jack Nicklaus (17-8-3 during an era of U.S. dominance), but that everyone knew Nicklaus had won 18 majors.One element he faced every two years was trying to be on a team of 12 players even as the golfing world saw it as Tiger Woods and 11 other Americans. He was 21 when he played his first Ryder Cup in 1997 and already was the sport’s biggest star.Back in the Ryder Cup as a player for the first time in six years, Woods is in the spotlight again.One year ago, he was riding in a cart as a vice captain in the Presidents Cup, having played one PGA Tour event in two years with no certainty there would be another. And then he made yesterday look like yesteryear with a wire-to-wire win at the Tour Championship, his first trophy in more than five years and the feeling that more was to come.Tiger Woods celebrates after picking up his putt for par on the 18th green to win the final round of the Tour Championship golf tournament Sunday, Sept. 23, 2018, in Atlanta. (AP Photo/John Amis)Woods still hasn’t grasped the significance of the victory at East Lake. He didn’t know the TV ratings because he headed straight to France on the charter flight, had a team dinner and then was out in the chill of Tuesday morning for his first look at Le Golf National.“Are they good?” Woods asked to plenty of laughter. “Sorry, I’ve been a little bit busy, so I haven’t looked.”NBC Sports Group said the final round was the highest-rated Tour Championship on record dating to 1991.U.S. captain Jim Furyk has tried to tone down the hype, though it was hard to ignore that it was a “boost for everyone, and I think for Tiger in general, it’s cool.”“The arms up in the air on 18, it looks like that’s going to be a cover on maybe about 100 magazines this week,” Furyk said. “You could tell it was significant for him. I also know how important this event is to all 12 guys and to Tiger, as well. … Being a guy with his status and that number of wins, he can flip the page and turn his attention to this week. So he’s out there grinding and trying to help this team as much as he can.”Woods and DeChambeau, one of three Ryder Cup rookies on the U.S. team, have been looked upon as a potential partnership for Le Golf National. Furyk said not to read anything into the way he sent off his players in groups of four for the first official practice round. He said Tuesday was more about learning the golf course because only six U.S. players have seen it.Phil Mickelson, who also has a losing record (18-20-7), joined Woods, DeChambeau and Patrick Reed.Mickelson then caused a small stir by saying he and Woods would welcome another chance to play together, even though their 2004 partnership at Oakland Hills resulted in two losses and plenty of ridicule in the years that followed.Will it happen?“I do have an idea of what Captain Furyk is thinking, yeah,” Mickelson said with a grin, allowing for no other detail.The best personal mark Woods ever had at the Ryder Cup was the only other time he was a captain’s pick, going 3-1 in Wales. He failed to win a match in his most recent Ryder Cup, going 0-3-1 at Medinah when Europe rallied to win on the last day.Woods, however, is more than six years removed from the Ryder Cup. He has gone through four surgeries that kept him out of 10 majors and two Ryder Cups, though he comes to France with a winning feeling — not just the Tour Championship, but his role as a vice captain at Hazeltine two years ago during a rare American victory.The next generation of Americans looked up to him as the legendary figure who inspired them when they were kids. Now he is back to being their peer, feeling as much a part of the team as ever, no matter whose picture is on the cover of magazines.last_img read more
