Toledo edges Watson, 66, by one shot at Pebble Beach

first_imgPEBBLE BEACH, Calif. – Esteban Toledo held off 66-year-old Tom Watson by a stroke Sunday at Pebble Beach in the Champions Tour’s First Tee Open. The 52-year-old Mexican player shot a 3-under 69, rebounding from a bogey on the par-3 17th with a par on the par-5 18th for a 9-under 206 total. He also won twice on the 50-and-over tour in 2013. ”I got a little bit nervous,” Toledo said about of his bogey on the 17th when his tee shot went wide right. ”I had no idea where I was in the tournament at the time and I just hit a bad shot.” Watson was trying to break Mike Fetchick’s record as the oldest winner in tour history. Fetchick won the 1985 Hilton Head Seniors Invitational on his 63rd birthday. Watson finished with a 67 after a second-round 65. The Hall of Famer moved into a tie for the lead at 9 under on the par-4 16th with his seventh birdie of the round, but bogeyed the 17th after hitting his tee shot into a bunker and missing a 10-foot par putt. He parred the 18th. ”It was great to be in position to win,” said Watson, winless since the 2011 Senior PGA Championship. ”I thought I was going to shoot my age again. That was really cool to break my age yesterday, especially here at Pebble Beach.” After opening with a 75 at Poppy Hills, Watson had a 65 on Saturday at Pebble Beach. He won the 1982 U.S. Open at Pebble Beach and took the PGA Tour’s Bing Crosby event at the course in 1977 and 1978. ”You remember those times and the positive shots you hit,” Watson said. ”That’s how I played today. I got off to a really good start with four birdies in a row.” Toledo shot a 66 at Pebble Beach in the second round and had only two bogeys in the tournament. ”I finished second to Colin Montgomerie at the Senior PGA this year and I learned a lot,” Toledo said. ”I learned I had to be more aggressive and make putts and I did.” Second-round leader Montgomerie closed with a 73 to tie for third at 7 under with Vijay Singh and Woody Austin. Singh finished with a 69, and Austin shot 70.last_img read more

New life, same goals for McIlroy

first_imgPONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. – Fidgeting with his wedding ring, discussing his new, long-term equipment deal, Rory McIlroy officially launched the next chapter of his career Tuesday at The Players. He is making his first start since the Masters, since he tested even more clubs, since he got married to fiancée Erica Stoll, since he finalized the deal with TaylorMade, since he shed a few pounds from his honeymoon and since he ramped up his preparation for a return to competition. A hectic April, to be sure, and yet … “With everything that’s gone on the last few weeks,” he said, “it seems like everything is very settled. There’s not many question marks going on in my life right now. I feel like everything is exactly where it’s meant to be, and if you feel like that off the golf course, then I can only imagine that it will help you on it.” McIlroy better hope for a wedding bump, because his main competition is pulling away. On a tear since last year’s U.S. Open, Dustin Johnson has opened up a nearly five-point lead in the world rankings – over the past two decades, only Tiger Woods has enjoyed such a massive advantage. “I can’t see him falling off or dropping off,” McIlroy said, “so it’s up to the other guys to try and catch him.” Since DJ’s considerable shadow has obscured the rest of the Tour, it seems like eons ago that McIlroy last won. But since the Tour Championship, he has played only seven events – Johnson has 10 starts during that span – his progress derailed by an early-season rib injury. Since returning in March, he has finished seventh or better in all three stroke-play events, including at the Masters. After falling short at Augusta, again, McIlroy suggested that he needed to make some changes with his game. That included a closer look at his equipment, and so he tested clubs for 10 days before being blown away by TaylorMade’s offerings, specifically its new ball, the TP5x. The Players Championship: Articles, photos and videos Said McIlroy: “I thought, Wow, this is what I need. This is exactly the thing that I’ve been struggling with.” Everything else fell into place, and McIlroy, after hinting at an equipment change in an Instagram post on Monday, announced the lucrative, full-bag deal on Tuesday. It’s a calculated risk, of course, switching out the entire bag. If he had enough rounds to qualify, McIlroy would rank first on Tour in strokes gained-tee to green. “But I came to the conclusion that this was the best way forward for me to try and improve, try and win more, try to get back to world No. 1, try to win more majors, so I’m really excited about that,” McIlroy said. “It’s very rare that you get really excited about your equipment, but I feel like it’s a new chapter in my life, and it’s hopefully going to take me to the next level.” That new chapter also includes his new life off the course. He married Stoll on April 22 at Ashford Castle in Ireland, a lavish wedding that included Masters champion Sergio Garcia and pop star Niall Horan and soul singer Stevie Wonder.   No, McIlroy isn’t the only Tour player to get married this year – Valspar winner Adam Hadwin tied the knot in March – but he is the most famous. And just like every newly married man, he expects a learning curve as he adjusts to a different level of contentment. “This game is what I’ve wanted to do my whole life, so I’ll always be determined, I’ll always be intense and try to get the most out of my game,” he said. “I don’t think that will change just because I’m married or not. My mentality on the golf course will just be the same. It might help me get over tough losses a little bit easier, but I don’t know – I’ll have to tell you what that time comes.” But McIlroy isn’t completely settled – at least not yet. The Northern Irishman is not a full-time resident in the States, so he can spend only 120 days in the U.S. and 90 in the United Kingdom. Now that he’s married to a U.S. citizen, however, he can establish a permanent residence here beginning on Jan. 1. “I can’t wait to have a home,” he said. “I’ve been a bit of a nomad for the past few years.” And settling down can have a significant benefit, right? “Just being centered,” he said. “Now you know what you can go back to and what you have.” And what McIlroy has is seemingly everything – an awe-inspiring golf game, a beautiful wife, a support system with family and friends, an abundance of riches. What comes next, what he achieves, is entirely up to him. “I’m in a great place in my life and I feel very settled and very lucky to be in this position,” he said. “Now it’s just about trying to make the most of the good fortune that I’ve had.”last_img read more

Reed vs. Spieth: Someone has to go

first_imgAUSTIN, Texas – The introduction of round-robin play to the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play was a necessary evil. It was needed to stem the tide of early exits by high-profile players, but three days of pool play has also dulled the urgency inherent to match play. There are exceptions, like Friday’s marquee match between Jordan Spieth and Patrick Reed, which is now a knockout duel with both players going 2-0-0 to begin the week in the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play. That the stars aligned so perfectly to have America’s most dominant pairing in team play the last few years square off in a winner-take-all match will only add to what promises to be must-see TV. Sport doesn’t always follow the script, but the pre-match subtext on this one is too good to dismiss. In one corner, professional golf’s “Golden Child” who has used the Match Play to wrest himself out of the early season doldrums, and in the other there’s the game’s lovable bad boy. Where Spieth is thoughtful and humble to the extreme, Reed can irritate and entertain with equal abandon. Perhaps that’s why they’ve paired so well together for the U.S. side at the Ryder and Presidents Cup, where they are a combined 7-2-2 as a team, although Spieth had another explanation. “We’re so competitive with each other within our own pairing at the Ryder Cup, we want to outdo each other. That’s what makes us successful,” Spieth said. “Tiger says it’s a phenomenon, it’s something that he’s not used to seeing in those team events. Normally you’re working together, but we want to beat each other every time.” But if that makes the duo a good team each year for the United States, what makes Friday’s showdown so compelling is a little more nuanced. The duo has a shared history that stretches all the way back to their junior golf days in Texas and into college, when Reed actually committed to play for Texas as a freshman in high school only to change his mind a year later and commit to Georgia. That rivalry has spilled over to the professional ranks, with the twosome splitting a pair of playoff bouts with Reed winning the 2013 Wyndham Championship in overtime and Spieth winning in extra holes at the 2015 Valspar Championship. Consider Friday a rubber match with plenty of intrigue. WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play: Full bracket | Scoring | Group standings WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play: Articles, photos and videos Although the friendship between the two is genuine, there is an edge to the relationship, as evidenced by Reed’s comment last week at the Arnold Palmer Invitational when he was denied relief on the 11th hole on Sunday. “I guess my name needs to be Jordan Spieth, guys,” Reed said. While the line was clearly a joke, Reed added to Friday’s festivities when he was asked what makes Spieth such a good match play opponent. “I don’t know, my back still hurts from the last Ryder Cup,” smiled Reed, a not-so-subtle suggestion that he carried Spieth at Hazeltine. For his part, Spieth has opted for a slightly higher road. He explained this week that there have been moments in the Ryder Cup when his European opponents attempted some gamesmanship, which only angered Reed and prompted him to play better. “I’ve been very nice to [Reed] this week,” Spieth smiled. But if the light-hearted banter between the duo has fueled the interest in what is often a relatively quiet day at the Match Play, it’s their status as two of the game’s most gritty competitors that will likely lead to the rarest of happenings in sport – an event that exceeds expectations. Both have been solid this week, with Speith winning his first two matches without playing the 18th hole and Reed surviving a late rally from Charl Schwartzel on Thursday with an approach at the 18th hole that left him a tap-in birdie to remain unbeaten. They may go about it different ways, but both possess the rare ability to play their best golf on command. “I’m glad the world gets to see this because it will be special,” said Josh Gregory, Reed’s college coach who still works with the world No. 23. “You have two players who want the ball and they aren’t afraid of anything. Patrick lives for this moment.”  Where Reed seems to feed off raw emotion and the energy of a head-to-head duel, Spieth appears to take a more analytical approach to match play. Although he admits to not having his best game this week, he’s found a way to win matches, which is no surprise to John Fields, Spieth’s coach at Texas. “Jordan gave us a tutorial before the NCAA Championship, we picked his brain on his thoughts on match play and how he competed. It’s one of those secret recipes that someone gives you,” Fields said. “When he was a junior golfer he came up with this recipe.” Whatever the secret sauce, it will be tested on Friday when two of the game’s most fiery competitors will prove why match play can be the most entertaining format when the stars align like they have this week. It was a sign of how compelling the match promises to be that when asked if he had any interest in the Spieth-Reed bout, Rory McIlroy smiled widely, “I have a lot of interest in that. Hopefully I get done early, I can watch it. Penalty drops everywhere.”last_img read more

As neuroscientist Henry Markham summarized at the end of a TED Talk, “I hope that you are at least partly convinced that it is not impossible to build a brain. We can do it within 10 years, and if we do succeed, we will send to TED, in 10 years, a hologram to talk to you. Thank you.” If he had asked anyone now gathered at Discovery Institute’s Walter Bradley Center, I think they would have advised him not to go out on that particular tree branch.As Ed Yong points out at The Atlantic, Dr. Markham recorded his talk in July 2009, now just past a decade ago. “It’s been exactly 10 years,” Yong notes, adding perhaps superfluously, “He did not succeed.”The Brain as a SupercomputerThe title of the talk was, “A brain in a supercomputer.” Well, maybe the prophecy failed because the brain is not just a computer, super- or otherwise, and because nothing like real consciousness will be available to a machine, now or perhaps ever. Sure, a machine can give a TED Talk — as you would have guessed if you’ve seen the Hall of Presidents attraction at Disneyland, introduced in 1971 — but whether it would understand what it was saying is the real question.Another AnniversaryOver at Mind Matters, Walter Myers has an excellent post reflecting on another anniversary, this one the publication of an iconic book, Gödel, Escher, Bach: An Eternal Golden Braid (1979), 40 years old next month. I’d never read it and, out of curiosity, I picked up a copy for myself and started in on this huge work, which won a Pulitzer Prize for author Douglas Hofstadter. As Dr. Myers recalls, many readers got to the end and completely misunderstood Hofstadter’s point.It’s not really about Kurt Gödel, M.C. Escher, or J.S. Bach, or about math, art, and music and their interplay. As Hofstadter clarified in a preface to the 20th anniversary edition, he was arguing in much the same vein as Henry Markham, that the brain can be understood in rules-bound machine terms, with consciousness dancing on top as an “emergent” property.The book was intended to ask the fundamental question of how the animate can emerge from the inanimate, or more specifically, how does consciousness arise from inanimate, physical material? As philosopher and cognitivist scientist David Chalmers has eloquently asked, “How does the water of the brain turn into the wine of consciousness?”Hofstadter believes he has the answer: the conscious “self” of the human mind emerges from a system of specific, hierarchical patterns of sufficient complexity within the physical substrate of the brain. The self is a phenomenon that rides on top of this complexity to a large degree but is not entirely determined by its underlying physical layers.In the 1999 preface, he notes an apparent contradiction. When we look at computers, we see inflexible, unintelligent, rule-following beasts with no internal desires, which he describes as “the epitome of unconsciousness.” Is it a contradiction that intelligent behavior can be programmed into unintelligent machines? Is there an “unbreachable gulf” between intelligence and non-intelligence?Hofstadter believes that through large sets of formal rules and levels of rules generated by AI, we can finally program these inflexible computers to be flexible, thinking machines. If so, we were wrong in thinking that there is a marked difference between human minds and intelligent machines.The Culture of MaterialismOr to put it another way, a brain is a supercomputer. Forty years later, that assertion remains just that, an assertion. Walter Myers concludes:[T]he view that human consciousness is something unique is the most tenable philosophical position unless we learn definitively otherwise.There is, quite simply, no mechanical explanation of how the human mind has emerged from brawling chimpanzees over the course of millions of years of evolution.The idea of the mind as a “meat machine” retains its hold on smart people for reasons other than neuroscience. It’s not science but the culture of materialism speaking. Read the rest at Mind Matters.

When Maties captain David Brits scored his second try at the start of the second half, with flank Gift Dlamini adding to the lead, the Eastern Cape side were left with a mountain to climb.To their credit, the Madibaz kept fighting and got their first try when substitute Khakalethu Bophi sprinted clear down the touchline for a seven-pointer. Likhona Dywili added further respect to the scoreline with a try in the last couple of minutes.Player That Rocks: Juan Mostert (Maties).Maties – Tries: Thys Kitshoff, Juan Mostert (1×5, 1×7), David Brits (2), Gift Dlamini (1×7).

Paul Treu’s team can be proud of the fighting spirit they showed throughout the match. Unsurprisingly, speedster wing Lundi Msenge again displayed his talent with a well-taken brace, while No 8 Tinotenda Mavesere also scored two tries. ‘ 熱門話題對肚腩脂肪感到後悔!試了在萬寧賣的這個後…熱門話題|SponsoredSponsoredUndo GoGoPeak10 Most Beautiful Cities You Should Visit Once In Your LifetimeGoGoPeak|SponsoredSponsoredUndo Loans | Search AdsLooking for loan in Hong Kong?

Unfortunately for them, they conceded a breakdown penalty, for which Du Plessis made them pay.UP-Tuks had looked set for a comfortable win after taking a 20-point lead, with prop Dewald Donald and centre Louritz van der Schyff crossing for tries, and Du Plessis adding two conversions to his two earlier penalties.But Burger’s first try – a seven-pointer – was followed by Uys’ first just before half time, and when Burger scored again early in the second half it set up a thrilling battle that would be decided in dramatic fashion.
