The Masters: Rory McIlroy has no concerns over where golf is going and expects Augusta National to pass test | Golf News

first_img “But I don’t mind this. This is nice. It feels like everything this year, it’s more subdued, it’s more relaxed. That’s the feel for me, anyway.“Obviously Bryson is going to be feeling a little different because the attention is on him and deservedly so coming off the back of a major win and basically disrupting the game of golf over the last few months. It’s a big story, and I’m just as intrigued as everyone else to see how that unfolds.” Rory McIlroy on Augusta National: “I still think this golf course provides enough of a challenge to challenge the best players in the world”; watch The Masters live on Sky Sports’ dedicated channel from Thursday to Sunday with Featured Group coverage from 12.30pm on Thursday Last Updated: 11/11/20 6:16am McIlroy, who is once again chasing a career Grand Slam this week, admits he has not been at his best playing with no crowds since the restart, but was encouraged by his performance last time when he tied for 17th place at the ZoZo Championship.“Look, the game feels pretty good,” added the Northern Irishman. “Before the world changed in March, I was playing pretty good. I got to No 1 in the world, was playing pretty consistent golf, and then after we came back out of the lockdown, there’s been really good stuff in there, but there’s been some lacklustre stuff, too, lapses of concentration. You know, sometimes feeling like you’re out there and it doesn’t really count. McIlroy tied for eighth place at the US Open in September McIlroy tied for eighth place at the US Open in September

Djourou makes Hamburg switch

first_imgHamburg have signed Switzerland defender Johan Djourou on loan from Arsenal. Djourou said on Hamburg’s official website: “I’m very happy now that everything is sorted. HSV are a big club, with a lot of quality and great fans. “I am convinced that this is the right step for my career.” Hamburg’s director of sport Oliver Kreuzer said: “Johan was a priority as the defence is a very important part of our team. He has leadership qualities but is also fast, good in the air and very good on the ball.” The versatile Ivory Coast-born defender joined Arsenal as a 16-year-old in 2003 and has made 144 appearances for the Gunners. Press Associationcenter_img The 26-year-old has moved to Hamburg on an initial one-year loan deal with the Bundesliga club having the option to make the move permanent next summer. Djourou, who undertook his medical with the northern Germany club on Monday morning before putting pen to paper on his contract, spent the second half of last season on loan with Hamburg’s Bundesliga rivals Hannover after joining during the January transfer window. last_img read more

Mark Hughes dismisses claims of complacency

first_img There have been various examples of that sort of mix of results for the club since Hughes took charge in the summer of 2013 – the opening months of his first season saw a 3-2 win over Chelsea come not long after a 1-0 home defeat to Norwich. Stoke on Wednesday host the Canaries – who are just above the relegation zone – for the first time since that fixture, before entertaining present league leaders Arsenal on Sunday. And Hughes said on Tuesday about losses against sides like Norwich: “I don’t think it’s through complacency or underestimating the challenge of different teams. “We know every Premier League game gives you problems and you have to have the answers. “In certain games we’ve been unlucky, other times we’ve not performed and you also have to give credit to the opposition. “Teams have come here, frustrated us and at times got breaks to take games away from us. “For the most part we’ve been okay, ideally we want to be solid in the top half for the rest of the season now, and this game will hopefully help us create that gap between us and the bottom half.” Hughes is set to recall a host of first-team regulars for Wednesday’s match after resting them last weekend. The Potters, currently 10th in the Barclays Premier League, have enjoyed some notable victories against major opposition this term, beating Chelsea, Manchester City and Manchester United. But they have also lost a number of games they might have expected to win, with the likes of West Brom, Watford and Crystal Palace all triumphing at the Britannia Stadium. Press Association Stoke boss Mark Hughes insists his players have not been guilty of complacency when suffering unanticipated slip-ups this season. The attacking quartet of Bojan Krkic, Xherdan Shaqiri, Marko Arnautovic and Ibrahim Afellay sat out Saturday’s 2-1 FA Cup win at Doncaster and are poised to return. Arnautovic, whose contract ends in the summer of 2017, is currently in negotiations with the club over a new deal. And Hughes has scoffed at reports of the Austria international demanding £100,000-a-week wages, saying: “Figures being bandied about are just supposition by people taking a stab in the dark who really have no real idea. “Negotiations are ongoing and it is not affecting him adversely, so there is no issue with it.” Meanwhile, in terms of the transfer window Hughes has reiterated his hope of keeping hold of striker Peter Crouch – who netted on what was only his eighth appearance of the season on Saturday – while also not dismissing talk of being interested in West Brom frontman Saido Berahino. When asked about the Berahino link, Hughes said: “I can’t really comment on players at other clubs. “We have an interest in a number and if we are in a position to progress deals we’ll try to do that.” Hughes also confirmed Stoke’s Steve Sidwell is receiving interest. The midfielder is being linked with his former clubs Fulham and Reading. last_img read more

This camping becomes necessary as we want to select the best hands among the junior players so that they can also test might with their foreign counterparts at the world juniors. With the experience of Toriola and Michael Oyebode, who were both in Rio Olympic Games, I am confident that camping would have impart on the players and prepare them for the championship,” Oshodi said.He added: “The selected players will later go into close camping before the championship in November and they will continue to train in readiness for the competition.Toriola will surely depart to his base after the camping and we hope the coaches around can continue to sharpen the skills of the players before the tournament which has Egypt, Nigeria, Algeria and Tunisia representing Africa in Cape Town, South Africa.”The invited players are Abayomi Animasahun, Azeez Solanke, Amadi Umeh, Michael Abayomi, Augustine Emmanuel, Jamiu Ayanwale, Ololade Oyenekan, Tobi Falana, Etim Orok, Babafemi Babatunde and Umar Ibrahim for boys and the girls include Tosin Oribamise Agnes Onoja, Ajoke Ojomu, Alimot Ayinla, Rofiat Jimoh, Iyanuoluwa Falana, Vivian Akpan and Sukurat Aiyelabegan.NTTF will cater for the players’ feeding and accommodation while their states are expected to offset their transport fare.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

first_imgBusiness owners and the public around Letterkenny have been warned that fake €50 notes are in circulation around the town.The notes are of good enough quality but do not have good watermarks.The bogus notes first came to light when a local taxi-driver went to pay his car tax and found a fake €50 in his wallet. “I had a number of €50 notes in my wallet to pay my tax and I noticed this one did not look good.“I took it to the Garda station and they told me it was fake,” he said.A Garda spokesman said there could be a number of the notes in circulation.“It was a busy weekend in the town and people might have been in a rush and did not check these notes. “We believe there could be a few in circulation.“WE are asking the general public and business owners to check when they receive €50 notes. If they suspect there is anything wrong with them, then they should contact us immediately,” he said. PUBLIC WARNED AFTER FAKE €50 NOTES PUT INTO CIRCULATION AROUND COUNTY was last modified: February 6th, 2012 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:fake €50 notesGardailetterkennylast_img read more
