Amazingly Mark Hunt felt OK after his five-round war with Antonio (Bigfoot) Silva last time out. Calvin Johnson Womens Jersey . Apart from the hand broken in two places, that is. Combine Silvas renowned teak-like noggin with 103 significant strikes and something has to give. Not that Hunt, the 40-year-old heavyweight known as the Super Samoan, was complaining after the all-action fight was scored a majority draw. "I didnt feel so bad," said Hunt. "It was a great fight, I did my job and I was happy." The Australian-based New Zealander, ranked No. 6 among heavyweight contenders, takes on another big hitter in No. 8 Roy (Big Country) Nelson in the main event of a UFC event in Tokyo on Saturday. Neither fighter will win a Mr. Universe title but both can pack a punch. Hunt is a former K-1 champion who went on to fight in Pride and has become a fan favourite in the UFC for his punching power and never-say-die attitude. The 38-year-old Nelson is a former winner of "The Ultimate Fighter" who has a black belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu as well as a cannon for a right hand. And both are coming off big performances: Hunt (9-8-1) against Silva and Nelson (21-9) with a TKO win over Antonio (Minotauro) Nogueira in April. Like Hunt, Nelson broke his hand in the bout. Hunt and Silva earned the fight of the night bonus and kudos from UFC president Dana White for their Brisbane brawl. "Both Hunt and Silva win FON and both get their win bonus and I might buy them both their own private ISLANDS!!!! Sickest HW fight ever!!!," White tweeted that night. The UFC bosss enthusiasm was tempered later by news that the six-foot-four 264-pound Silva tested positive for elevated levels of testosterone. Hunt has been in the wars of late. At at UFC 160 in May 2013, his last fight before Silva, he broke his toe and needed six stitches after a knockout loss to Junior Dos Santos. He was laid low after the fight when a bruise suffered during his training camp became infected. "Its been kind of funny, one (fight) after the other," Hunt said of his ill luck. "But such is life, its part of fighting." Hunt appears to have issues of his own heading into the Nelson fight. Yahoo, quoting a UFC source, reported that the five-foot-10 Hunt weighed 284 pounds Thursday, meaning he would have to lose 19 pounds to make the heavyweight limit of 265 Friday for the Saitama Super Arena bout. The card also includes a lightweight bout between No. 9 contender Myles (Fury) Jury and Takanori (The Fireball Kid) Gomi. Welterweight Amir Sadollah, winner of Season 7 of "The Ultimate Fighter," takes on veteran Yoshihiro (Sexyama) Akiyama in a battle of two fighters who have not been in the Octagon for more than two years And second-ranked womens bantamweight Miesha (Cupcake) Tate faces Japans Rin Nakai. Hunt is no stranger to Saitama from his days in K-1 and Pride. "I have good and bad memories fighting in Japan," he said. "Im looking forward to going back to work and putting on a good show for the people that pay their money to come and watch me fight. Im going to try to move closer to that title shot." Hunt calls his combat sports abilities "a gift from God." "I never wanted to be a fighter," he said. "I just got into a fight outside a nightclub and thats how I started. I didnt go to train at some karate school for 10 or 20 years. I just stumbled upon it. Four days later I was fighting (Muay Thai)." One of the bouncers at the nightclub invited him to his gym and Hunt, who had been going down a poor life path, suddenly found himself a fighter. Years later he is the main attraction. "God saved my life and so has fighting," he said. "Fighting changed my life completely. The angry kid that was lost as a child is gone. Im an adult now -- of course I make mistakes, Im not perfect-- but Im always trying to stay straight ... Im grateful. Ive been blessed." Tahir Whitehead Youth Jersey . Villar connected off Joe Saunders (11-14), sending a drive well over the left-field fence for his first career homer. The Astros scored six times in the first three innings to chase Saunders. Marvin Jones Jr Womens Jersey . -- Josh MacDonalds second goal of the game kept his team alive as the Peterborough Petes edged the host Kingston Frontencas 6-5 in overtime on Friday in Ontario Hockey League playoff action.LeBron James reportedly decided to opt out of his contract with the Miami Heat on Tuesday. Heres a few quick thoughts of what this Decision means to me. 1. CONTROL: Hes the best player by far on the planet so its his contractual right to exercise this clause and I agree with him. Old-timers and traditionalists might not like it but its the reality of pro sports in the 21st century. Great actors/actresses set the tone and select what movies/plays they want to perform in and who they want to work with and for and LeBron is at that level in the "sports/entertainment industry" that former NBA commissioner David Stern created with the emphasis on stars over teams. This is a creation of that. Right, wrong or indifferent - it is what it is. Hes negotiated and earned the right to reconsider and re-explore what hed like to do with his career. The man is serious about his game and is a student of the game and wants/needs some space here to evaluate. 2. MIAMI HEAT: We all saw them with our own eyes in the NBA Finals vs. the Spurs. The reality is that the current team as constructed needs major improvements or they wont challenge against the superior Western Conference teams for an NBA title. In addition, if an Eastern team like the Chicago Bulls gets back a healthy Derrick Rose and is able to acquire Kevin Love and/or Carmelo Anthony who is to say that theyre even the No. 1 contender in the East anymore? Do you honestly believe that Dwyane Wade is going to give you 70-75+ regular season games and four playoff rounds at a high level at $20 million per year? Is Chris Bosh still committed to playing in all areas of the game rather than just becoming a jump shooter? If Im LeBron I have my doubts. A few smart tweaks with Wade and Bosh sacrificing some money opens up the possibility of it all working again...yet its far from a sure thing. 3. CLEVELAND CAVALIERS: Owner Dan Gilbert blasted LeBron on the way out the door after "The Decision". Does LeBBron forgive and forget? Does new GM David Griffin have the wherewithal/pedigree to pull off such a heist? He and Kyrie Irving together - not bad. Golden Tate Womens Jersey. . They have the No. 1 Pick and some talented young guys they can package to move to Minnesota for Kevin Love. How does Irving, Love and LeBron sound to you? It would be a better Big Three at this point that the Miami version even though both Love and Irving have put up "numbers", yet still havent shown me yet that theyre truly special. What a return this would be. 4. OTHER SUITORS (Chicago, Houston, LA Lakers): Youll hear about all three and more in the hunt for the King. Needless to say, you put him on the Bulls or Rockets and theyre in the hunt for a title. The Lakers? Kobe and LeBron would be an interesting pairing but what does the rest of the roster look like? How long does Kobe hold up? Lots more questions than answers in LA. The rumour mill will surely be filled with gossip from all three of these spots. 5. TORONTO RAPTORS: Not saying this because its wishful thinking on my part. Seriously, why not? They desperately need a starting small forward. You put him with a re-signed Kyle Lowry, Demar DeRozan, a re-signed Patrick Patterson and Jonas Valanciunas with a re-signed Greivis Vasquez, Terrence Ross and Amir Johnson and Ill take my chances with anyone in the East. On a league-wide scale Im not scared by anyone with that crew on my side. You want hoops to grow in Toronto and across the country - go for it. Nothing to lose. Realistic? Maybe not but honestly thats not a bad eight-man core whatsoever. Obviously, the salary cap/luxury tax always comes into play but for a player of this magnitude you explore every possibility. It would actually be a very good team if it ever happened. Why not Toronto? Its about time we stick our chests out and go for it. I like the style of GM Masai Ujiri and CEO Tim Leiweke and this fits them if its a reasonable pursuit.

SAN ANTONIO - LeBron James should be used to the NBA Finals by now. Colin Kaepernick 49ers Jersey . After five trips to the championship series in eight years, it would make sense if he had a been-there, done-that attitude when stepping onto the sports biggest stage. He doesnt. On Wednesday James took a seat inside a makeshift interview area, sneaked a quick glance at the NBA Finals signage that was off to his left side, and beamed like a kid in a candy store. Just a couple years removed from being ripped for not delivering in the moments that decide championships, James seems more comfortable in these surroundings than ever. "Im blessed, man," James said. "Thats all I can say." And then, without stopping, the four-time MVP said much more. "This is my fifth appearance in a finals," he continued. "Im blessed. I was a kid who watched so many finals appearances and, you know, watched Michael Jordan and watched Shaq and Kobe ... we watched throwback finals games. ... I just wished maybe I could see the finals verbiage behind me and be a part of this." His wishes come true again Thursday night, when James and the Miami Heat open these finals against the San Antonio Spurs, the NBAs first championship-series rematch since 1998. The Heat are going for a third straight title, the Spurs are trying for their fifth crown since 1999. If Miami wins, the perception will be James came through. If Miami loses, the perception will be he didnt do enough. James knows thats the reality. He doesnt mind. "I play for my teammates, our team, the city of Miami, my friends and family, and I gave it all for that," James said. "And at the end of the day, win, lose or draw, Im satisfied with that. I dont get involved in what people say about me and my legacy. I think its actually kind of stupid." By now, the story behind James rise to a champion is no secret. He left Cleveland in 2010 because he felt Miami gave him a better opportunity to win titles. In 2011, when Miami lost to Dallas in the final round, James said he was relying too much upon proving his doubters and naysayers wrong. So the next season, he vowed to play the game the way he had in the past. Championship No. 1 came in 2012, championship No. 2 came last season in an epic seven-game series against the Spurs, and now the shot at No. 3 is here. "Hes really taken his game to a whole other level," Heat guard Dwyane Wade said. "Obviously as an individual hes grown, as a man, both on and off the court from his own experiences. So I think hes done a phenomenal job. ... If I sit back and look from afar, hes done an unbelievable job under the microscope that hes been under since he was 16 years old of doing things his way and been very successful at doing them." If James is feeling pressure right now, it doesnt show publicly. Away from the public eye, though, teammates have marveled all season about how someone who makes more than $50 million a year in salary and endorsements is working perhaps harder than ever. "Nothing he does is normal," Heat forward Michael Beasley said. "He practices wearing a weight vest. Does that sound normal?" James spent the majority of his question-answering time Wednesday laughing or smiling. Off-stage, he joked with a few other people, chatting and seeming as relaxed as he would if this was the eve of a Heat-Spurs game in January, not one in June. The Spurs are worried about stopping James, they know that wont happen. "We understand LeBron is the best player in the league and just physically hes just a monster," San Antonio forward Tim Duncan said. In 2007, when the Spurs swept Cleveland, James was still learning. In 2011, he felt like he absolutely had to win, and failed to get it done. In 2012 and 2013, he just played the game the way he felt it needs to be played. And its no coincidence that its all fallen into place since. "Every time I come up here and talk to you guys or I do something, you know, very well on the basketball floor or off the floor, my city is rewarded by that," James said. "My family is rewarded by that, my friends are rewarded by that, the kids and all the kids in the world that look up to me are rewarded by that. Thats enough to get me by. Everything else is extra credit." Deion Sanders Youth Jersey .

HOYLAKE, England -- The British Open packs 154 years of history on links courses that have been nurtured more by time than by tractors. Allen Robinson Jersey . It returns this year to Royal Liverpool, the second-oldest golf club in England, established in 1867 before anyone in America knew much about the Royal & Ancient game. For all its heritage, however, the charm of this major is what lies ahead. No one ever knows what to expect. Consider the landscape. Royal Liverpool was so brown and baked when The Open was last here in 2006 that the R&A asked players to take extra care if they smoked, and it had two fire engines stationed on the golf course. The ball rolled so far when it hit the ground that Tiger Woods hit only one driver over 72 holes and won by two shots. Now the grass is greener than it was at Pinehurst No. 2 for the U.S. Open. It feels like a new course this year. "Its lush. The greens are soft and very green. Fairways are pretty similar," said Rory McIlroy, who took a scouting trip to Hoylake last week. "But I think they are going to get a spell of good weather leading up to The Open, and hopefully, it will get a bit firmer." He recalled watching in 2006 when "the ball was like bouncing down a road on the fairways." McIlroy says he could hit as many as five drivers each round. "Its going to be a little different," he said. "Theres some thick spots of rough on the course, so avoiding that and avoiding those fairway bunkers ... if I can just do that, and anyone else can do that, then theyll have a good chance." A greater change might be the landscape of golf. Woods was at the height of his powers eight years ago when he won the claret jug for the third time. He was the first player in more than 20 years to repeat as Open champion. He would go on to win the PGA Championship that year, making history as the only player to capture multiple majors in successive years. Now he makes news when he can even play in a major. Woods has had three surgeries since he was last at Royal Liverpool a(euro)? two on his left knee, the most recent on March 31 to alleviate a nerve impingement in his back, which caused him to miss the Masters for the first time, and then the U.S. Open. When the British Open begins on Thursday, it will be his first major in 11 months. Woods returned earlier than anyone thought a(euro)? himself included a(euro)? three weeks ago in the Quicken Loans National at Congressional. He missed the cut, which annoyed him, and played without pain, which thrilled him. "I hate to say it, but Im really encouraged by what happened this week," Wood said. "What I was able to do physically, and the speed I had and the distance that I was hitting the golf ball again, I had not done that in a very long time." He wasnt worried about the little mistakes, mainly with his short game, because he could fix them. But how soon? Woods is 38 and without a major in six years, leaving him at 14 for his career and still four short of catching Jack Nicklaus. It might help to return to a course where he has won before, except that this is a different golf course. And he is not the same player. "We havent seen Tiger really, really play well in a while now," two-time U.S. Open champion Curtis Strange said. There hasnt been a dominant player even during his time away from various injuries and surgeries over the last five years. Golf is ruled by committee. McIlroy, with two majors by age 23, is just now starting to get his game back in order. Martin Kaymer is in the best form, having won The Players Championship and U.S. Open by going wire-to-wire in both. Adam Scott is No. 1 in the world. Phil Mickelson is the defending champion. Justin Rose is fresh off a big win at Congressional. Bubba Watson is a Masters champion again. All have had moments of greatness, none of it sustained. Nineteen players have won the 24 majors that have been held since Woods won his last one. "We have all witnessed what Tiger has been able to do over his career, whether thats come back from injury and win, come back from any sort of off-course stuff and win. I mean, win the U.S. Open on one leg," McIlroy said. "Is it foolish for people to write him off? I would say so. If hes playing and hes competing, hes got as good a chance as any." Considering the circumstances, Woods winning would be a surprise. Then again, for as long as golfs oldest championship has been around, it is still capable of delivering a few shockers. Mickelson produced one of his own at Muirfield last summer when he had his named etched on that silver claret jug for winning the one major that for years befuddled him. Only five years ago, 59-year-old Tom Watson came within an 8-foot par putt of being the oldest major champion. Ben Curtis was playing his first major in 2003 when he won at Royal St. Georges. He was the only player to break par. The Open returned to St. Georges eight years later, and 11 players had a better score than Curtis. What happened eight years ago at Royal Liverpool feels like ancient history. Perhaps that should be the adage for The Open. The more things stay the same, the more they change. Julius Thomas Jaguars Jersey . Louis Blues just continue to roll -- especially against the Nashville Predators. Yannick Ngakoue Youth Jersey . Bayern winger Franck Ribery marked his league return after recovering from a cracked rib by scoring two goals and setting up two more as the league leaders inflicted the heaviest home defeat on Bremen in the Bundesliga.Every night of the Stanley Cup playoffs, TSN hockey analyst and former NHL goaltender Jamie McLennan breaks down each goalies performance. Jamies number grades given are out of five, with five being the best mark. Tuukka Rask, Boston Bruins (3) - He was sharp on Wednesday night with big saves in the first period on Brian Gionta and Brendan Gallagher and had no chance on the backdoor goal by Dale Weise. He also had huge saves in the second on Brian Gionta twice, Rene Bourque and the Thomas Vanek/Kevan Miller deflection. He kept it close with no chance on the backdoor max Pacioretty goal and kept it at 2-1 on a huge save on Andrei Markov. There was no chance on the deflection off of Chara in the third. Carey Price, Montreal Canadiens (5) - Price was dialed in all night with good saves on Jarome Iginla and Loui Eriksson and it looked easy because of his positioning. The statement save was on Patrice Bergeron with a 2-on-1 in the second. There was nothing to shoot at and it forced him to makee a bad play. Malik Jackson Youth Jersey. And he was sharp again in third when Bruins had a big push. You could feel that he wasnt going to lose this game. He outduelled Rask head-to-head and came out on top. John Gibson, Anaheim Ducks (3) - He had no chance on the Jake Muzzin goal, as it was a backdoor play and made good saves on Justin Williams and Anze Kopitar in the first. He allowed a bad goal to Trevor Lewis in second period which may have touched Bryan Allens skate, but it still goes through the five-hole. He also had a huge save on Doughty to keep it at 2-1. He was solid, but the difference was one soft goal and we are going to a Game 7. Jonathan Quick, Los Angeles Kings (5) - He had big saves on Lindholm, Koivu and Palmieri in this game. On the Palmieri goal, he was late to get across and tried to use flexibility with no push on it. His save on Devante Smith-Pelley in the last minute was vintage Quick, as he scrambled and got to post. The last second sequence was a true battle in the crease and he held up. Outstanding.

ANAHEIM, Calif. Harrison Smith Jersey . -- For the first 8 minutes of the Ducks return to Anaheim, coach Bruce Boudreau thought he saw the residual effects of an eight-game, 15-day road trip. For the rest of the night, the Ducks dug deep -- and demonstrated why theyre on top of the NHL. Hampus Lindholm scored his first career goal, Corey Perry got the tiebreaking goal right before the second-period buzzer, and the Ducks stayed perfect at home with a 5-2 victory over the Phoenix Coyotes on Wednesday. Ryan Getzlaf, Lindholm and Cam Fowler each had a goal and an assist in Anaheims triumphant return from a 5-2-1 road trip. With six wins in their last seven games, the Ducks (13-3-1) lead the league with 27 points despite playing alongside Phoenix and San Jose in the competitive Pacific Division. "It didnt look like we had a lot of energy or jump (early)," Boudreau said. "Then it seemed like it all kicked in again." Shane Doan put the Coyotes ahead in the opening minutes, but the Ducks eventually responded with the same aggressive play and balanced goal-scoring theyve used to climb up the standings -- and the NHLs worst power play even chipped in twice. "We knew tonight was going to be difficult, but we cant use being tired as an excuse for not doing what we have to do," said Perry, fourth in the NHL with 10 goals. "We learned a lot from the way we started last year, and we have to continue to do what we did." Even with largely awful special-teams play, the Ducks are off to their second straight outstanding start under Boudreau after opening 22-3-4 last winter. Anaheim moved to the top of the league table this season amid a brutal schedule that includes yet another East Coast road trip after the current three-game homestand. The Ducks are 6-0 at Honda Center, maintaining the only perfect home record in the NHL. "We were definitely treating this game with tons of importance," said Fowler, who matched his goal total from last season. "We knew the type of roll Phoenix was on, and it seems like nobody seems to be losing in our division right now. We understood how important these two points were." Perry tipped home Lindholms shot during a delayed penalty with 1.1 seconds left in the period, and Fowler provided a cushion with the second man-advantage goal of the night for the Ducks, whose power play had scored just four times all season. Jonas Hiller made 24 saves for the Ducks, and Andrew Cogliano added an empty-net goal with 1:02 to play while limping to the bench after Doan levelled him with a big hit along the far boards. Michael Stone scored a power-play goal for the Coyotes, who had won five straight. Mike Smith stopped 24 shots, but Phoenix failed to earn a point for just the second time in 14 games. "We were in a back-to-back, and they were coming off a long road trip, so it was a pretty even playing field," said Doan, who has five goals in his last seven games. "But we know we gave it to them." After Doans early goal in his 1,262nd regular-season game, Lindholm evened it in his 15th NHL game. The 19-year-old rookie defenceman, whose surprising emergence has catalyzed Anaheims fast start, converted a pass from Mathieu Perreault in the slot. After Stone put Phoenix back ahead, Getzlaf evened it moments later with a shot off Martin Hanzals stick during a two-man advantage for his seventh goal. Anaheims power play went 1 for 28 on the road trip. Perry then put the Ducks ahead in the waning seconds, lightly deflecting Lindholms shot from the blue line. "You cant win a game in this league if youre going to turn the puck over and be undisciplined," Phoenix coach Dave Tippett said. "We knew it was going to be a hard game, and it was a good test for our team to see how wed react. When youre chasing in the game -- especially when youre playing back-to-backs -- you look tired. But we just didnt play smart enough or execute well enough." Teemu Selanne returned to the Ducks ahead of schedule after missing the final three games of the trip for oral surgery. The Finnish Flash, who was expected to be out for two weeks, lost four teeth and needed 40 stitches after taking an inadvertent high stick from Philadelphias Luke Schenn. Phoenix played without defenceman Derek Morris, who incurred a lower-body injury in Tuesdays win over Vancouver. The Coyotes then lost right wing Radim Vrbata to a lower-body injury during the game. NOTES: Anaheim D Luca Sbisa played his second game of the season after missing the first five weeks with an injury. ... Phoenix D David Schlemko missed his fourth straight game with a lower-body injury. ... Sami Vatanen, who has the only other goal by a Ducks defenceman this season, was scratched. Cris Carter Jersey .

And go through him, he did.Dos Anjos (22-7 MMA, 11-5 UFC) stunned Benson Henderson (21-4 MMA, 9-2 UFC) in the main event of UFC Fight Night 49, scoring a first-round knockout at the 2:31 mark.Dos Anjos, from Brazil, traded kicks and punches early with the American. But soon he found a way to get inside and landed a pair of jumping knees. The second put Henderson on the canvas along the fence.Thats when dos Anjos pounced. As Henderson got back to his feet, dos Anjos leveled him with a left hand that may have had Henderson out. When he again hit the floor, it only took two punches from dos Anjos to convince referee John McCarthy to stop the fight.I have no words, dos Anjos said. I was training for everything and worked a lot on my striking. I knew my striking was better than him. My plan was to be patient in the first round, and thats what I did.Dos Anjos was near a title shot this past spring, but a loss to Khabib Nurmagomedov seemed to send him back to the middle of the pack. This win over Henderson, though, widely regarded as the best lightweight in the world outside of champion Anthony Pettis, may have him right back in the mix.Im always the underdog. But tonight, I think I proved to everyone. Ben Henderson is a great champion, and I respect him a lot. But now is my time. Im doing my job. Whoever the UFC puts (in front of me) to fight, Ill fight.Henderson said he wasnt a fan of the stoppage, believing he was still with it enough to continue.I thought I was clear-headed. But it is what it is. Youve got to take the good with the bad. Thats the way it goes sometimes, Henderson said.In the co-main event, Jordan Mein, from Lethbridge, Alta., put an absolute exclamation point on his likely ascension from welterweight prospect to welterweight contender. Meiin (29-9 MMA, 3-1 UFC) stopped Mike Pyle (26-10-1 MMA, 9-5 UFC) in just 72 seconds courtesy of a vicious left hand that had Pyle stiff and falling backward. Vikings T-shirts. Once on the canvas, Mein finished him off with five quick punches.Im very happy to get the win over a tough veteran guy like Mike, Mein said after the fight. The game plan was to go out there and not overcommit to any strikes. I wanted to throw hard shots, but not open myself up for any easy takedowns. It didnt go very long but, everything went to plan. Im ready for whatever the UFC has next for me and Id love a top contender.The victory for Mein came after some controversy as his father and chief cornerman, Lee Mein, was arrested in Tulsa on Friday afternoon and charged with sexual battery. The UFC issued a statement saying Lee Mein was barred from cornering his son at the event.Also on the main card, Montreal-based Francis Carmont (22-10 MMA, 6-3 UFC) dropped his third straight match after an 11-fight winning streak when he was shut down by Brazils Thales Leites (24-4 MMA, 9-3 UFC) just 20 seconds into the third round.UFC Fight Night 49 results:Rafael dos Anjos def.

The South African overcame a three-shot deficit during his final round at Harbour Town to post a five-under 66 and finish two shots clear of Luke Donald and Russell Knox.Victory is Graces first ever on the PGA Tour and his second of 2016, following his triumph on the European Tour at the Qatar Masters, with the 27-year-old now hoping to replicate the run he managed after last years appearance in this tournament.   Grace mixed seven birdies with two bogeys during the final round Ending tied-seventh in South Carolina last year sparked a run of form which saw Grace finish inside the top-20 a further 12 times worldwide during 2015, including top-four finishes at the US Open and PGA Championship, giving him plenty of encouragement for the months ahead.Its awesome and is something I have dreamt of, Grace told Sky Sports. Ive been out here over the past couple of years and have given myself some chances, so this is great. Graces Heritage glory Final round report from the RBC Heritage I played some flawless golf, even with two bogeys, but it was a tough day out there and you just had to grind it out.This is pretty much where it (form) started last year for me, as I had my first top-10 here on the PGA Tour last year and then it just kicked off. Graces win followed a missed cut at last weeks Masters I was in a really good frame of mind coming in to this event and Im now excited to see how the year turns out.Donald, who has now made six top-three finishes since 2009 in this event, was joined in a tie-for-second by Knox after the Scot posted a final-round 67.Knox broke in to the worlds top 50 with victory at last years WGC-HSBC Champions and was also a runner-up at the OHL Classic, with the 30-year-old delighted with his form ahead of a potentially busy year.Today I was thrilled, I played great all day and hit some nice putts at the end there, Knox told Sky Sports. I was happy with the way I conducted myself and the shots over the last few holes. Russell Knox now has three top-two finishes on the PGA Tour this season I played beautifully on the first day, but I just made a mess of the first couple of holes which turned a good round in to a terrible feeling.Of course winning again and the Ryder Cup are goals of mine now, but Im just trying to enjoying it. Im so fortunate to be playing in these great tournaments, so Ive just go to soak it all in and go for it.The next event on the PGA Tour is the Valero Texas Open , which youll be able to watch live throughout the week on Sky Sports 4 - your home of golf Also See: Grace claims Heritage title RBC Heritage highlights Harbour Town leaderboard Golf live on Sky Sports 4 Washington Huskies Jerseys . "Ive got a lot of work to do on this team and the sooner that I can get back to my office and start that work, itll be better," he said straight-faced as the rest of the room erupted in laughter. LaMichael James Oregon Jersey . His head snapped back from the impact and hit the floor. The All-Star power forward was all right afterward, a relief for the Minnesota Timberwolves. SAN DIEGO -- Tim Lincecum doesnt pitch like the two-time Cy Young award winner from five years ago. Hes just beginning to get similar results. The right-hander struggled after winning the honour in 2008 and 2009, but a retooling of his game has begun to pay off and has the San Francisco Giants thinking about the Lincecum of old. After throwing a no-hitter against San Diego 11 days ago, Lincecum took a shutout into the seventh inning Sunday to lead the Giants to a 5-3 win over the Padres. Lincecum (8-5) extended his scoreless streak to 23 1-3 innings before Brooks Conrad hit a solo homer in the seventh to knock him out of the game. The streak started with his second career no-hitter against San Diego on June 25. Lincecum followed that with eight scoreless innings in a 5-0 win over St. Louis on Tuesday. Although this is not the overpowering Lincecum who won the Cy Young in consecutive years, the results are impressive. "Im not going to overpower teams with my stuff," Lincecum said. "Im just going to have to mix my pitches and locations. Im doing a good job of that. Im not missing in big spots with pitches." He allowed one run on three hits, walked four and struck out six. Lincecum has won all three starts this season against San Diego and improved his mark against the Padres to 16-6 in 29 career starts. Lincecum threw his first no-hitter at San Diego on July 13, 2013. "Timmys just been on a good roll," Giants manager Bruce Bochy said. "How poised hes been, how easy his delivery has been." The Giants have been down this road before with Lincecum since he began struggling after his last Cy Young season and lacked the consistency that had marked the early part of his career. Bochy thinks this recent stretch may last. "Hes reinvented himself," Bochy said. "I think he has a better idea of what he wants to do as far as pitching. Hes become more of a pitcher. It was pure stuff early on in his career. Hes gotten more cerebral with the pitching side of it." Lincecum also believes he may be able to sustain his most recent success as compared to other stretches when it didnt last. "Its just a feeling I have right now," he said. "I look for consistency and this is about as consistent as I have been in the last few years. Hopeefully, this is the start of something good. John Elway Stanford Jersey. " The Giants, who had dropped 18 of 22 games after they lost the opener Friday, won two straight to win only their second series in nearly a month. Brandon Belt drove in two runs for San Francisco and Hunter Pence had three hits, extending his season-best hitting streak to 11 games, and scored three runs. Rookie Joe Panik and Michael Morse each had an RBI. Three relievers combined with Lincecum on a four-hitter. Santiago Casilla pitched the ninth for his third save in six chances. The Padres did not get their first hit off Lincecum until there were two outs in the fourth. Yasmani Grandal hit a two-run homer, his seventh, off former closer Sergio Romo in the eighth inning to cut the Giants lead to 5-3. Rookie Jessie Hahn (4-2) lost his four-start winning streak, allowing three runs on five hits over seven innings in his sixth major league start. The left-hander struck out five and walked two. "In the early innings, they were sitting on my curveball, so I had to make some adjustments," Hahn said. Hahn retired 11 straight batters after he allowed Morses RBI single to fall behind 3-0 in the third. "The second half of his outing was outstanding," Padres manager Bud Black said. "I was really impressed with how Jesse hung in there." Belt singled in a run in the first and had a sacrifice fly in San Franciscos two-run eighth. NOTES: Lincecums career best for scoreless innings is 29 in 2009. ... Giants 3B Pablo Sandoval, who left Saturday nights game with a left elbow bruise after he was hit while swinging at a pitch, did not play. ... The Giants 5-3 win Saturday night in 10 innings was just the clubs third victory since moving to San Francisco in 1958 in which the team won a game with a game-tying homer in the ninth inning and a game-winning home run in the 10th, according to information provided to the Giants by the Elias Sports Bureau. ... Giants RHP Ryan Vogelsong (5-5, 3.86 ERA) is scheduled to face As RHP Jesse Chavez (6-5, 3.23) in the opener of a three-game series at Oakland on Monday. ... The Padres travel to Colorado with RHP Ian Kennedy (6-9, 3.87) going against Rockies LHP Tyler Matzek (1-2, 4.25) in the opener of a three-game set.

The Chicago Blackhawks made a move, dealing with former GM Dale Tallon to re-acquire a member of their 2010 Stanley Cup team. Chuck Bednarik Jersey . Numbers Game looks at the deal sending Kris Versteeg to the Blackhawks for a couple of prospects. The Blackhawks Get: RW Kris Versteeg and LW Philippe Lefebvre. Versteeg, 27, is off to a relatively slow start this season, with two goals, seven points and a minus-9 rating in 18 games, but there are reasons to actually be positive about his play, even as he is coming back from reconstructive knee surgery. First off, Versteeg has relatively strong possession stats, and was horribly unlucky, particularly on the defensive end, where Panthers goaltenders provided an abysmal .871 even-strength save percentage with Versteeg on the ice. In the offensive end, Versteeg has scored on a carer-low 4.3% of his shots. Since he has scored on 11.9% of his shots over the course of his career, its reasonable to expect that rate to go up. Additionally, it could be troubling if Versteegs low point production was a function of not getting opportunities, perhaps indicating that he cant even get into scoring position, but thats not the case. Versteeg has a career-high 2.61 shots on goal per game despite playing a career-low 15:42 per game for the Panthers. Versteeg also hasnt had a great deal of consistency in terms of linemates in Florida. His most common linemates have been C Scott Gomez and LW Jonathan Huberdeau, but has also spent time with rookie C Aleksander Barkov, LW Tomas Fleischmann, LW Scottie Upshall and C Marcel Goc. In Chicago, Versteeg can slide into a third-line role, but has the skill to work on the power play and move up the lineup if need be. Hes a four-time 20-goal scorer who finished the 2011-2012 season with a career-high 54 points. Since leaving Chicago in the summer of 2010, Versteeg has played for Toronto, Philadelphia and Florida. The Panthers will eat half of what remains on Versteegs contract (and cap hit) through the life of the deal, which runs through the 2015-2016 season. Half of his four-year, $17.6-million deal counts as $2.2-million per year against the cap, with a slightly higher cash outlay over the next couple seasons. Lefebvre is an undrafted 22-year-old winger who has split his time between the AHL and ECHL in his first two pro campaigns. He has 18 points in 92 AHL games, so hes a longshot to be anything more than a minor-league contributor. His inclusion in the deal is likely more about giving the Panthers flexibility since they have 48 (of a possible 50) players under contract. The Panthers Get: RW Jimmy Hayes and D Dylan Olsen. Hayes, who turns 24 next week, is a 6-foot-6 winger who hasnt been able to stick as a regular with the Blackhawks, but has 13 points and relatively unimpressive possession numbers in 43 career NHL games, though he has tallied 29 goals and 53 points in 80 AHL games since the start of last season. It could be an interesting fit if the Panthers were to pair Hayes with 6-foot-6 C Nick Bjugstad, a mix of towering collegiate forwards who have some skill to go with their size. Even if Hayes fits lower on the depth chart, he should get a legitimate opportunity to prove that hes capable of handling an NHL job. Olsen, a 22-year-old who was a first-round pick in 2009, played 28 games for the Blackhawks in 2011-2012, finishing with one assist and minus-5 rating. He has 30 points in 152 AHL games since leaving the University of Minnesota-Duluth and needs to play a steadier game if hes going to be anything more than a fringe NHLer. Its understandable that the Panthers, in a rebuilding mode, dont necessarily see the value in a 27-year-old winger who is on the wrong end of percentages early this season, not viewing Versteeg as part of the solution to their current problems. But even if that is the case, its fair to question a process that brings two Tallon draft picks (from his time as Blackhawks GM) as the return, particularly when the Panthers were willing to take on half of the financial obligation due to Versteeg over the next two-and-three-quarter seasons. Maybe Hayes and Olsen are going to make it as NHLers in South Florida, but it appears that what made them most qualified for this trade is that they were familiar commodities to the Panthers general manager.

7) Who is the NHL scoring leader? (No, its not Sidney Crosby. Markus Golden Womens Jersey . Its Jakub Voracek of the Philadelphia Flyers. Philly has never had an NHL scoring champion.)8) Speaking of the Flyers, their fans welcomed back Scott Hartnell with signs and loud applause when he returned last week as a member of the Columbus Blue Jackets. Why did the Flyers trade Hartnell, anyway? (Dont know.)9) If hes the NHL Star of the Week, we should be very familiar with him, no matter who he is, right? Okay, Jori Lehtera. (To say the St. Louis Blues have waited for him is to say they could have forgotten about him. Hes a 26-year-old from Helsinki, Finland who was drafted in 2008 and has been in the KHL for the past four years. His stats say he has never scored 20 goals in a season since he was 15. Hes on a pace for about 35 in his first NHL season.)10) Are there two Adam Silvers? (Well, more than two, obviously, but I looked it up because I couldnt believe that NBA commissioner Adam Silver was the one who came out in favour of legalized betting on pro sports. Amazingly, Twitter found me an Adam Silver who says he loves to bet on sports. He lives in Melbourne. Not sure if thats Australia or Florida, but Id bet on Florida.)11) I know nobody pays attention to batting average anymore, but shouldnt the guy with the richest contract in baseball history (Giancarlo Stanton, Miami Marlins, $325 million) have had at least one .300 season? (Well, shouldnt he?)12) At the end of the CFLs regular season, did Toronto Argos owner David Braley prefer to be known as the owner of the British Columbia Lions, and at the end of the CFL East semi-final in Montreal, did Braley prefer to be known as the owner of the Argos?

(Not unless his name is Dominik Hasek, or his game is as great as Haseks was in 1997 and 1998 for the Buffalo Sabres.)14) Can you do more for the team/franchise that picked you number one overall in the NHL draft than Mike Modano did for Minnesota/Dallas? (No. Modano holds franchise records for seasons and games played, goals, assists and points scored and he won the Stanley Cup. The only other number-one draft pick to do that was Mario Lemieux.)15) Once you learned that Pat Burns used to be a cop, didnt you want to find other hockey coaches who used to be cops? (His former profession always served coach Burns well, I thought.)16) Is it true that hockey referees are doing a good job if, when the game ends, you cant remember who they were?

ANAHEIM, Calif. Tyrell Williams Womens Jersey . -- The Los Angeles Angels have requested waivers on 19-year veteran outfielder and designated hitter Raul Ibanez for the purpose of giving him his unconditional release. The highlight of his brief stay with them was on April 12 when he hit a tying three-run homer with two out in the bottom of the ninth inning against the New York Mets Jose Valverde for his 2,000th career hit. The Angels also optioned right-hander Cam Bedrosian to Double-A Arkansas, after he gave up nine runs, eight hits and seven walks in 5 2/3 innings over his first six big league appearances. Infielder Efren Navarro was recalled from Triple-A Salt Lake, and right-hander David Carpenter was added to the major league roster. Ibanez, the second-oldest player in the majors behind Jason Giambi, batted .157 with three homers and 21 RBIs in 190 plate appearances for the Angels after signing a one-year deal for $2.75 million during the off-season. "Rauls going to be tough to replace in the clubhouse. He brings so many intangibles," manager Mike Scioscia said. "Weve got some young kids, but its a tough day for us. Rauls a great competitor and a terrific person, and well definitely miss him. Like anybody, there was disappointment. Hes very accountable. He knows he didnt do what he wanted for us. He took it with what youd expect for a guy with his class." Ibanez career has included three stints with the Seattle Mariners. He also played for Kansas City, Philadelphia and the New York Yankees. His career average is .273 with 303 homers and 1,202 RBIs.

PHILADELPHIA -- The Milwaukee Brewers are feeling right at home on the road and gaining more confidence with each win. Ryan Braun hit a two-run triple during a three-run eighth inning rally to lead the Brewers to their fifth straight win, 9-4 over the Philadelphia Phillies on Wednesday. Carlos Gomez and Mark Reynolds homered and Jean Segura doubled and drove in a run for Milwaukee, which has won all five games during the streak on the road beginning with a sweep of the Red Sox at Fenway. Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said winning on the road can be a huge boost for a club. "When you win on the road, and not just winning but against the teams that were playing, then it becomes really important," Roenicke said. The Brewers snapped a 4-all tie in the eighth when they scored three runs on one hit off Antonio Bastardo (0-1). Reynolds scored the go-ahead run on an error by first baseman Ryan Howard, who let Logan Schafers grounder go into right field. Braun, who hit three homers Tuesday, broke the game open with a two-run triple to the wall in left-centre that made it 7-4. Tyler Thornburg (2-0) pitched two scoreless innings of relief to earn the victory. Braun, who served a 65-game suspension for violations of major league baseballs drug agreement and labour contract, was booed during each of his four putouts and every at-bat - none louder than when he reached third in the eighth. Reynolds hit a two-run homer in the ninth. "Were just getting hit after hit and its fun to be a part of," Reynolds said. "Offences go through this, they just click. Guys get big hits. You go through these streaks where its fun to be a part of and tough to get us out. Were just going to ride this streak out as long as we can." Philadelphia starter Roberto Hernandez allowed four runs - three earned - on seven hits in five innings while coming within one strikeout of matching his career high with nine. "Hernandez threw the ball well," Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg said. "He was mixing his pitches and did a nice job." Brewers starter Matt Garza gave up four runs - three earned - on eight hits in six innings with four strikeouts and two walks. "I couldnt really find a groove," GGarza said. Joey Bosa Youth Jersey. "I fought myself for six and am happy to keep my team in there. All that matters is the W. We stack as many as we can and see what happens at the end of September. Thats what you play for." The teams combined for five runs on four hits and two errors in a shaky first inning where both teams looked in early season form. Milwaukee scored a pair of the runs in the top half, bolstered by four-time Gold Glove winner Jimmy Rollins rare error at shortstop. It was a continuation of a problem for Philadelphia, which upped its total to nine errors in eight games. Sandberg, in his first full season as a manager after taking over for fired Charlie Manuel last Aug. 16, has stressed getting back to fundamental baseball. "We definitely have to straighten things up," Sandberg said. "Were working on it." Philadelphia took the lead with three runs in the bottom half that included a Garza balk and second baseman Scooter Gennetts throwing error. Seguras second-inning RBI double tied it at 3 and the Brewers went ahead 4-3 on Gomezs solo homer to left in the fourth. As is his custom, Gomez eschewed the traditional home-run trot for an all-out sprint around the bases. Marlon Byrds single to centre in the fifth tied it at 4. Ben Revere, criticized in Philadelphia on Wednesday for making an error and misplaying another ball in Tuesdays 10-4 home-opening loss, made a spectacular, diving catch to rob Gennett of a hit in the second inning. Roenicke successfully challenged a first-inning out call by second base umpire Adrian Johnson, who incorrectly ruled that Revere beat Garzas throw to second. Replays, though, showed that Segura tagged Reveres leg before he reached the bag. The replay caused a delay of 1:29. Notes: Phillies 3B Cody Asche didnt start due to a minor hamstring injury but entered in the ninth and doubled off the wall in right-centre. .

MINSK, Belarus - When Troy Brouwer returned from a vacation during the NHLs Olympic break, he tuned in to the final few games of Team Canadas run to gold in Sochi. Joe Montana Womens Jersey . Understandably, he liked what he saw. "I think the Olympic team did an absolutely amazing job at showing how Canadians play hockey," said Brouwer. Brouwer wasnt the only one. Phoenix Coyotes coach Dave Tippett saw not just a winning style of hockey but something to emulate. As coach of Canadas team at the world championship, he wants to follow the path blazed by Mike Babcock and the stars who went undefeated at the Olympics. "I look at the blueprint from a few months ago in Sochi, the way Canada played: A hard, Canadian style of hockey," Tippett said in a recent phone interview. "If we can go and try to continue that mindset for our team, I think that would be something that would be crazy not to look at." It would be crazy to think any team can duplicate that effort in perfect fashion. Canadas team for the IIHF world hockey championship wont have any players from Sochi and this is a different tournament altogether. Most of the other countries are in the same boat, absent the top-end NHL talent from the Olympics, save for Alex Ovechkin and Sergei Bobrovsky returning for Russia after its disappointing run and others like Jaromir Jagr of the Czech Republic and Gustav Nyquist of Sweden also going to Minsk. But that doesnt change Canaadas plan for this tournament, which begins with Fridays opener against France. Kyle Turris isnt Sidney Crosby, Morgan Rielly isnt Shea Weber and neither James Reimer nor Ben Scrivens is Carey Price, but the hope is that talented NHL players in their own right can get the same job done. "I think your team has to have its own identity, but you look at what that team did and the success it had on the big ice and with NHL players, theres certainly some things that you can use on our team," Tippett said. "The team that played in Sochi, you could say was one of the best teams in the history of the game, the way they played. You realize we dont have that same team, but the way they played and their commitment to playing as a team was as strong as anything weve seen in a long time. That part of the game can certainly translate into our team." The first steps are there. General manager Rob Blake along with assistant GMs Ron Hextall, Brad Treliving and Brad Pascall, like Steve Yzerman and his management team several months ago, looked for forward pairs to put together. Tippett, like Babcock, believes in having a left- and a right-handed shot on each defensive pairing. In terms of selecting the roster, Blake reiterated the obvious: that unlike the Olympics, an event every healthy player called wants badly to play in, the world championship is more selective. It has been a long NHL season and its too much of a grind to expect Sochi Olympians to jump at the chance to play three extra weeks in Minsk. "You go down to the tier of the younger guys and you get your commitments," Blake said in a phone interview. "You kind of work around. But Ron Hextall, Brad Treliving and Brad Pascall, the one thing they were pretty passionate about from the beginning is the guys that want to be there, those are the ones that you want." That group includes three Maple Leafs: Reimer, Rielly and centre Nazem Kadri, who played on the wing in Canadas exhibition game Tuesday in Zurich. It also includes in defenceman Braydon Coburn and forwards Brayden Schenn and Matt Read, three Flyers who just wrapped up a seven-game series loss to the Rangers. The crown jewel of the roster might be one of the final additions: Colorado Avalanche rookie Nathan MacKinnon, the likely Calder Trophy winner who impressed in his first season and first Stanley Cup playoff series. MacKinnon is on the team at age 18 like Crosby was in 2006, when the Penguins star had eight goals and eight assists in nine games. Even before MacKinnon it was a young team thanks to defencemen Erik Gudbranson, Ryan Ellis, Tyler Myers and Rielly and forwards Jonathan Huberdeau, Sean Monahan and Mark Scheifele. Jason Chimera of the Washington Capitals, who won gold at the 2007 worlds in Moscow, is Canadas oldest player at the age of 35. Chimeras Capitals teammates Brouwer and Joel Ward are also on the roster. Chimera, a candidate to be captain, is important to Tippetts plan for the tournament because he knows what its all about. "The importance of the players who have been over there before and their experiences, especially relating that to our younger players that havent had that experience, is going to be a very important part of our preparation," Tippett said. The one thing about Canadas relative international inexperience is that its not a rarity here. Aside from Norway, Switzerland and Latvia, which feature national teams with major Sochi flavour, most teams have significant turnover from the Olympics. Tippett didnt see that as something Canada can take advantage of. From his experience as an assistant in this tournament, he knows what it means for European players and countries. "For the players that play in those leagues over there, this is their Stanley Cup playoffs," Tippett said. "If they win, their country puts a lot of onus on this tournament, and even though the players on our team would look at the Stanley Cup as the greatest thing to play for, you almost have to have that mind-set that the world championships, for a lot of these players over there, thats their Stanley Cup. "Well make sure that our players know the importance it is to those other teams to win and our competitiveness should be at the same level if were going to have a chance to win." --- Follow @SWhyno on Twitter Christian Okoye Womens Jersey .com) - The Tampa Bay Buccaneers quickly found themselves a new offensive coordinator, and one thats quite familiar with the NFC South.

Haden signed a five-year, $68 million extension with Cleveland on Monday, the total value of the contract surpassing cornerback Richard Shermans four-year, $57 million agreement last week with the Seattle Seahawks. Hadens contract runs through the 2019 season and includes $45 million guaranteed, agent Drew Rosenhaus told The Associated Press. The package also contains a $14 million signing bonus. One of the AFCs top defensive backs and one of Clevelands most popular athletes, Haden made his first Pro Bowl last season, his fourth with the team. The Browns selected him with the No. 7 overall pick in 2010. "Joes a good, young player whos made a commitment to our organization, and hes somebody with whom we want to move forward in order to advance our football team," general manager Ray Farmer said in a statement. "Hes a great person. Hes the right guy to both build with and build around as we attempt to become an elite football team. "When we talk about identifying talent, building through the draft, developing solid players and retaining them, Joe Hadens at the top of the list." Haden posted a photo on Twitter of him signing his new contract. Signing Haden to a long-term deal was a priority for Cleveland this off-season. During the draft, the team selected Oklahoma State cornerback Justin Gilbert early in the first round to play opposite Haden. Last season, Haden had four interceptions, recorded 60 tackles and was credited with 21 passes defenced. He had his first career multiple-interception game and scored his first touchdown, returning an interception 29 yarrds at Cincinnati on Nov. Dee Ford Chiefs Jersey. . 17. According to STATS, Hadens 21 passes defenced in 2013 tied for third in the NFL and his 67 since joining the Browns four years ago are second in the league during that span. Haden averages 1.19 passes defenced per game, the second-highest average among players with 50-plus PBUs since at least 1994. For the most part, Haden has been an exemplary player and citizen since joining the Browns. His only major misstep was the four-game suspension he received in 2012 for violating the leagues substance abuse policy after he tested positive for the stimulant Adderall. First-year Browns coach Mike Pettine is thrilled to have Haden for several years. "Its important for us to extend our core players and continue to grow with guys that represent everything we want this team to be: tough, hard-working and passionate," Pettine said. "Joe obviously loves his teammates, and he loves this city. I know he wants to keep growing and improving as a player. Thats what we need, and thats what we want." With Hadens contract situation resolved, the Browns are expected to focus on getting Pro Bowl tight end Jordan Cameron signed to a long-term deal. Cameron had a breakout season in 2013, making 80 catches for 917 yards and seven TDs. Cameron is in the final season of his contract and has reportedly turned down two offers from the Browns. At Clevelands recent voluntary minicamp, Cameron said hes blocking out any discussion about negotiations to improve. "Ive got a lot of stuff to work on," he said. "Im not anywhere near where I can be. I still have a lot to prove to myself, and Im willing to work."
