perth_map

So numerous expectations of Spieth now are measured against that season. Turning his attention to Royal Birkdale and The Open , Spieth's theory is that the weather often takes half of the field out of the tournament. "Today is my day". "If someone told me, 'You're going to be a four-time major victor and you won the Open and you're one leg away from the career Grand Slam, you've played on three winning Ryder Cup teams, you've won the Order of Merit three times in Europe, you've won ...

The Raiders forward's late swinging arm to Slater's head was not enough to convince referee Matt Cecchin to give Soliola his marching orders early in the second half of Saturday's clash at Canberra Stadium. Slater is thought likely to be sidelined for at least a week but Australia captain Smith, who left the field with a pectoral injury, might miss more of Melbourne's run-up to the playoffs.

Antonio Conte praises Chelsea's Michy Batshuayi after double in Arsenal win

Conte was always doubtful of Lukaku's signing because he had concerns over the Belgian's work ethic when he is not on the ball. "In Singapore, Rudiger and Morata will arrive, maybe someone else, I hope". The striker completed a £70 million move to Chelsea, having largely played second fiddle to Madrid's forward line of Gareth Bale, Karim Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo last season, though he missed much of the campaign through injury.

The Open, Jordan Spieth Has An Electric Day 3

Thirty-one players had previously shot 63, the latest Justin Thomas in the third round of the U.S. Open in June. Grace, who began the day one stroke inside the cut line, was at 4 under. "I'm excited about it". While Kuchar finished with an impressive four-under 66, Spieth now held a three-shot edge after posting a five-under 65.

British Open tee times, pairings: Complete field for Round 4 on Sunday

I started to take out my book and saw the 18th hole and I'm like, 'I can't.' This is not worthy of this.

"He's got a day tomorrow where not only can he win a major championship , but it can do a lot for him in a lot of different areas". "It's really a dream come true", he said after signing his card.

Spieth's 65 stretches Open lead to 3 shots

The next closest pursuers - U.S. Open champ Brooks Koepka and Spieth's fellow Dallas resident Austin Connelly - are six shots back. His playing partner, Matt Kuchar , had joined him in the lead on 10-under after rolling in a birdie putt at the 15th, but, after matching that by making amends for a awful first attempt, the final few holes turned the tide back Spieth's way.

His playing partner, Matt Kuchar, had joined him in the lead on 10-under after rolling in a birdie putt at the 15th, but, after matching that by making amends for a bad first attempt, the final few holes turned the tide back Spieth's way. He's a amusing guy. Aside from the 3-shot lead, whom do we trust more on a Sunday at a major (with no Rae's Creek in sight)? "[Sunday] will be a day that will be emotionally draining and hard to stay very neutral in the head, " Spieth said. Read More »

Kuchar in strong position at Open as McIlroy emerges

The weather really won the day, but Jordan Spieth may now be in position to win the weekend and most importantly the Claret Jug at the 146 Open Championship. Perhaps more surprisingly, Poulter - who's never been accused of lacking confidence - has displayed a newfound humble approach this week. "We've been here before and we're not going for the first major, but it is the first Open and I'd be lying if I said I won't feel plenty of nerves", added Spieth, who missed out on a play-off at ...
