JACKSONVILLE, Fla. Nike Air Max Online Store . -- The PGA Tour said Monday it would follow a new rule that bans the anchored putting stroke used by four of the last six major champions, asking instead Monday for a temporary reprieve for those who play the game for fun. The announcement Monday after a PGA Tour board meeting is the final piece of confirmation from a major golf organization for Rule 14-1b, which will take effect Jan. 1, 2016 when the next "Rules of Golf" is published. The rule makes it illegal for players to attach the end of the club to their body would making a stroke. Adam Scott used a long putter held against his chest when he won the Masters. Ernie Els (British Open) and Webb Simpson (U.S. Open) used a belly putter last year. Keegan Bradley in the 2011 PGA Championship was the first major champion with a belly putter. The Royal & Ancient Golf Club and U.S. Golf Association proposed the new rule Nov. 28 and allowed for a three-month comment period. It formally adopted the rule May 21. Finchem said in February the tour was opposed to the new rule because there were no data to suggest an advantage and no "overriding reason to go down that road." The tours opinion was shaped by a players-only meeting earlier that month. "In making its decision, the policy board recognized that there are still varying opinions among our membership, but ultimately concluded that while it is an important issue, a ban on anchored strokes would not fundamentally affect a strong presentation of our competitions or the overall success of the PGA Tour," Finchem said in a statement. "The board also was of the opinion that having a single set of rules ... applicable to all professional competitions worldwide was desirable and would avoid confusion." The decision to go along was not a surprise. The common ground by all sides was the importance of golf being played under one fundamental set of rules, as has been the case for hundreds of years. The wrinkle that came out of the tours meeting was asking the R&A and USGA to give amateurs more time to adjust away from the anchored stroke. PGA of America president Ted Bishop was among those concerned that banning the stroke used for long putters would force too many people to quit the game out of frustration, at a time when golf is worried about decreasing participation. "The policy board continues to believe that extending the time period the ban would go into effect for amateurs would be beneficial for golf participation and the overall health of the game," Finchem said. Finchem cited the USGA changing the groove configuration for irons in 2008. It was effective for elite play in 2010, but does not apply to recreational play until 2014. But the decision on grooves was an equipment issue. Anchoring is a change in the actual rules of golf. For the USGA and R&A, which set the rules for the 600-year-old game, to allow amateurs more time to use anchored strokes would be created two sets of rules. The PGA of America also said it would follow the new rule, while expressing concern about amateurs. "We continue to feel strongly that the amateur player needs a longer period of adjustment to this rule," Bishop said. Neither Finchem nor Bishop recommended a date for amateurs. Finchem also sounded a warning that the tour reserves the right to make its own rules for its players, and that the USGA pledged "open and effective communication" on any future discussions on the rules. "It is not inconceivable that there may come a time in the future when the policy board determines that a rule adopted by the USGA, including in the area of equipment, may not be in the best interests of the PGA Tour, and that a local rule eliminating or modifying such a USGA rule may be appropriate," he said.

SALT LAKE CITY -- Turnovers got the Utah Jazz off to a rough start Saturday night.Sacramento raced to big leads in the first and third quarters, but behind Gordon Hayward and Rudy Gobert, Utah rallied both times for a 104-84 victory over the Kings.The Jazz had 22 turnovers but won for the eighth time in 10 games after holding Sacramento to just eight points on 3-of-22 shooting in the fourth quarter. It is the fewest points allowed by Utah in the fourth quarter this season.We guarded, Hayward said. They got nothing easy. It seemed like a lot of the shots were contested. Thats just what happened. Then we were able to get the ball up the court and they werent set. We got some good looks. People knocked down timely 3s.Gobert had 17 points, 14 rebounds and a season-high six blocks for the Jazz and is one of only five NBA players to block six or more shots in a game this season. Hayward scored 26 points after sitting out with an injured finger in Thursdays loss to Golden State, and Trey Lyles added 14 points and five rebounds for Utah.Rudy Gay scored 20 points and DeMarcus Cousins had 16 points and 10 rebounds to lead Sacramento. Darren Collison added 17 points and Omri Casspi chipped in 12 for the Kings, who lost for the seventh time in nine games.The Kings were undone by their lifeless fourth quarter.We scored eight, Sacramento coach Dave Joerger said. We shot 37 percent (in the game). Its tough. They do a great job of clogging the paint. You got to make shots if youre going to get them.The Kings took an early lead thanks to Utahs mistakes. The Jazz turned the ball over four times in the first 2:20 of the game, leading to an 11-0 Sacramento run. Gay highlighted the spurt with layups off back-to-back steals, and Kosta Koufos banked in a hook shot to finish it off.After a quick timeout, Utahs offense got back on track with baskets from Boris Diaw and Dante Exum on consecutive possessions. The Jazz took their first lead a couple of minutes later after Joe Ingles buried a 3-pointer. Hayward then capped a 22-5 run with back-to-back baskets to give Utah a 22-16 lead.The third quarter felt llike a rerun of the first.dddddddddddd After clawing back for a 52-50 halftime lead, Utah fell behind again after committing a pair of turnovers to spark a 10-0 Sacramento run. The Kings went ahead on two baskets from Collison and took a 60-52 lead on a pull-up jumper from Gay.Much like the first quarter, the Jazz rallied, and then Utah used a 20-4 run to slam the door on the Kings early in the fourth quarter. Hayward capped the stretch with a 3-pointer to give the Jazz a 98-80 lead with 5:31 remaining.They were unforced, just sloppy play, Utah coach Quin Snyder said. The guys sorted it out, which was good to see.TIP INSKings: Sacramento scored a season-high 36 points off turnovers. ... The Kings are 0-12 this season when trailing after three quarters. ... Cousins averaged 30.0 points and 13.0 rebounds in three games against Utah last season.Jazz: Hayward became the first Jazz player with 10 straight 20-point games since Karl Malone in 2001. ... Gobert registered his fourth straight double-double and his 15th overall this season. Gobert has averaged a double-double through Utahs first 25 games.CORRALLING COUSINSUtah tried to limit Cousins to low-percentage shots, keeping him out of the paint and off the free-throw line.Mission accomplished. Cousins shot just 7 of 22 from the floor and attempted just three free throws in 34 minutes. It became obvious Cousins was in for a long night when Gobert swatted back his dunk attempt on Sacramentos first play of the game.For Cousins, hes one of the best players in the league at his position, Gobert said. So you cant give him any space and you also have to make sure you move your feet because hes pretty quick and pretty strong.UP NEXTKings: Monday they return home to host the Los Angeles Lakers for the final time this season. Last time against the Lakers, poor second-half shooting led to a home loss for Sacramento.Jazz: Wednesday they host Oklahoma City. The Thunder swept the season series 4-0 with Utah a season ago.

A cricket club in South London has launched an appeal to save one of their youth team players, an Afghan refugee, from deportation. Nike Air Max 2016 Kopen .Ashoquolla Sultankhil, affectionally known by his team-mates as Shuk, arrived in the UK as a 14-year-old in 2014 following a perilous journey via Pakistan, Iran, Turkey, Bulgaria, Hungry, Serbia, Italy, and France.At the age of 10, Shuks mother and elder brother had been killed in a Taliban attack, and so he made the brave decision to follow in the footsteps of his father, with whom he has never had any contact, who left Afghanistan to seek work in Europe when Shuk was a baby.Despite an initial language barrier, Shuk successfully claimed asylum and was placed in Foster care in Eltham with a school place at Woolwich Poly. His passion, however, was cricket, and having researched the local clubs, he arrived at BHCC at the end of the 2014 season.Shuk turned up at the club speaking very little English, though he was able to make his point quite clearly, said Michael Barker, the clubs second-team captain. He loved cricket and wanted to play and we welcomed him with open arms.Shuk joined the Under 15s colts side in 2015, and went on to be selected for The Bexley District Academy. Educationally he managed to pass five GCSEs this year, including a C in English Language, the result of many hours spent learning in the local library.However, he recently failed in an application to remain in the UK and is now on his final appeal to stay in the country.All of us down at The Heath are desperate to have Shuk stay in his new home here in the UK, added Barker.

GREEN BAY, Wis. Cheap Air Max China UK . -- Clay Matthews and Julius Peppers are awaiting direction from the NFL Players Association before they talk to anyone from the league office about the Al Jazeera America report that linked the Green Bay Packers defensive stars to performance-enhancing drugs.Both linebackers said Tuesday theyre looking forward to being cleared just as Peyton Manning was on Monday, when the NFL released a statement announcing it found no credible evidence against the former Denver Broncos quarterback.Its bogus, but its kind of annoying that I have to continue to deal with this, Matthews said after the Packers first training camp practice of the year. But the truth will come out, and everything I said when the allegations came out I still stand by, so I just try to kind of put that in the rearview mirror and focus on the season.Peppers would only stand by his original denial from when the report surfaced in December.Im just trying to focus on camp and getting ready to play games, Peppers said. Not nonsense.Matthews said that it was good to see Manning cleared and that he hoped the rest of the players named in the report would receive the same treatment.Im just kind of waiting for the NFL to conduct its investigation, in which case the truth will come out, and itll just be another thing Ive had to deal with in my career, but theres nothing I can really do now, Matthews said. Its kind of ridiculous. Its good to see Peyton, at least, cleared in some regards, and I hope the names will go down the list.But, in the meantime, Im just obviously focusing on the start of the season, and well take it from that. Im going to let the NFL and NFLPA kind of figure it out and be advised on what kind of the next step is. Its been a long, drawn-out process, but well see once that time comes. Like I said in the past, I have nothing to hide, so its not an issue for me one way or the other. Cheap Air Max 90 Womens UK .

Louis Blues. Shane Hnidy joins Brian Munz for the broadcast on TSN 1290 Radio at 7pm ct. http://www.cheapairmaxwomensuk.com/womens-air-max-90-jade-cheap.html .ca looks back at the stories and moments that made the year memorable. The Lords Test was one of those matches that makes you feel slightly sorry for those uninitiated into, or unpersuaded by, the wonders of cricket. For example: all those ancient Romans, Incas and suchlike born tragically in the wrong place and at the wrong time; the elephants, sharks and stick insects cursed by being created as non-cricket-watching species; most Americans; my brother; N Srinivasan; and certifiable buffoons.They missed a sinuous drama of ever-cranking tension, burst in the end by a thunderously stump-clattering denouement, and scenes of glorious, infectious Pakistan delight. As all great cricket matches are, it was speckled with individual and collective brilliance and bloopers. Unlike most great cricket matches, it also featured a 42-year-old scoring a century, a legspinner taking ten wickets at Lords, a player taking 11 wickets and batting for almost five hours before being out, but still finishing on the losing side, and Nigel Farage, UKIPs quitmeister general, being roundly booed whenever he walked up the steps at the side of the Mound Stand on Friday. In every respect it was a magnificent, unforgettable occasion.It was the fourth great Test match that Lords has hosted in the past four years, after similarly captivating contests last year against New Zealand, in 2014 against India, and two years prior to that against South Africa. The latter two were similar to this years game. All featured tightly contested first innings with scores around 300 (339-272 this year; 295-319 in 2014; 309-315 in 2012). Bowlers held the balance of power, but batsmen were able to score. South Africas second-innings 351 was the highest innings in these three matches, Englands 207 on Sunday the lowest.The almost identical run rates - 3.05 in 2012; 3.03 in 2014; 3.09 in 2016 - have been unspectacular by modern standards, and only four sixes have been hit in a total of 1138 overs - three in 2012, one in 2014, none in this years Test. In fact, excluding the 88-over Bangladesh v South Africa Test in Dhaka last summer (reduced to one days play by a prolonged splattering of entirely scheduled seasonal rain), this was the first six-less Test anywhere since England and West Indies failed to clear the ropes at Lords in May 2012.Nevertheless, each game has utterly gripped the minds and souls of those who have watched them; each has made you want to dig up the Romans and the Incas, shake them by the scruff of whatever is left of their necks, and shout: Dont you realise what you are missing? Or dive into a shark tank and gloat about how much better a good Test match is than swimming around in an ocean trying to find your next helping of seal carpaccio. England, after recovering from three bad fourth-innings starts to force their way back into contention three times, have lost all three. How we have sacrificed ourselves for the greater good of the Test game.Looking ahead to what should hopefully be a better series than the one-sided clouting that followed Indias illusory win in 2014, there are weaknesses for England to exploit, straws at which to clutch - an unconvincing opening pair, a weak tail (Pakistans last three wickets added just 36 runs in the match, the joint third-lowest by a winning side that has batted two complete innings in a Test this millennium), and a less-than-Olympian fielding unit. Not that Pakistan needed an Olympian fielding unit. They took only seven catches in the match. There now follows a List of the Six Teams Who Have Beaten England Whilst Taking No More Than Seven Catches in Test Matches Since 1990.1. Pakistan 2. Pakistan 3. Pakistan 4. Pakistan 5. Pakistan 6. PakistanTruly, Pakistan cricket is a unique phenomenon. (Pakistan also beat England in Sharjah last winter with seven catches, in Abu Dhabi in 2011-12 with six, at Lords in 1996 with seven, and at Lords and The Oval in 1992 with six and seven respectively.)Another potential vulnerability is that they have no back--up bowling in the current XI. Womens Air Max 90 Brown UK. This was only the third time in the last ten years that a team has beaten England using only four bowlers; Australia did so in Leeds in 2009 and Perth in 2010-11. (England themselves beat Pakistan at Lords in 2010 using only four bowlers, a fact largely overlooked in most histories of that Test match.) If England can neutralise Yasir Shah, none of the remaining seamers, though they were impressive collectively at Lords, has a recent record of major Test wicket-taking.However, that if is one of ample, almost Inzamamic proportions. And those seamers looked like they are quite likely to embark on some major Test wicket-taking quite soon.There was some talk before Sundays play of how England would have to be ruthless with any loose ball bowled by Yasir. This plan they executed impressively. The only problem was that there were only about six loose balls in his 31 overs of probe (England managed three fours in his last 25 overs). Yasir is a magnificent cricketing jewel. He does not seem to have the whirling mystery and intermittent mercurial unplayability of Abdul Qadir or Mushtaq Ahmed. He just bowls good balls almost all the time, and very good balls quite often. Cricketing history suggests this is a Good Plan. Especially against a team with a historic vulnerability to (a) good legspin, and (b) very good legspin.Grand statistical conclusions are risky this early in his career, but his numbers are eye-popping. He is on course to break George Lohmanns 120-year-old record for fewest matches required to reach 100 Test wickets. He has been the leading wicket-taker in five of Pakistans last six Test victories, and joint-leading wicket-taker in the other (he and Shoaib Malik both took seven against England in Sharjah). He has taken seven or more wickets in a staggering nine of his 13 matches. By way of a few comparisons (and bearing in mind that Yasir is unlikely to maintain quite such a staggering success rate), Murali took seven or more in 59 of 133 Tests, a statistical miracle; Warne 42 in 145 (ditto); Abdul Qadir 13 in 67; Mushtaq Ahmed 9 in 52; Danish Kaneria 9 in 61; Stuart MacGill 13 in 44.As a bonus stat, on Sunday, Yasir became the first bowler ever to hit the stumps of Englands Nos. 5, 6 and 7 in the same Test innings. And this was the first Test in which England have lost eight batsmen bowled out since the drawn match in Port Elizabeth in 1999-2000 (when seven were castled by the South African pacers in the first innings alone).The relentlessness of Yasirs excellence was one of the principal factors in another recurring English problem - a failure to convert. In this match they struggled to convert 20s into fifties. Englands batsmen had nine scores of 20 or more, but only Alastair Cooks drop-assisted 81 breached the half-century mark. In Tests in which they have posted at least six scores of 20 or more, this represents their worst conversion of 20s to fifties since the 2005 New Years Test in Cape Town, when all 11 English 20s went un-half-centuried. This highlights the unceasing pressure applied by Pakistans bowlers. Pakistan, for their part, only converted two of their 11 scores of 20-plus into half-centuries. Highlighting the almost unceasing pressure applied by Englands bowlers.More on Englands ropey conversion stats later in the week. And their relative weakness against left-arm seamers. James Andersons return should prove influential. Whether it proves decisive will depend on Englands ability to stop getting out, having got themselves in.

OLYMPICSRIO DE JANEIRO -- IOC President Thomas Bach defended the decision not to ban Russias entire team from the Rio Games, declaring that the doping crisis wont damage the Olympic bodys credibility and taking a swipe at global anti-doping officials for failing to act sooner against state-sponsored cheating in Russia. Vapormax Flyknit Triple Black .Speaking at a news conference five days before the opening of the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Bach said a total ban on Russia for systematic doping would not be justifiable on either moral or legal grounds.Bach was peppered with questions about the International Olympic Committees handling of the Russian scandal, including the decision to give international sports federations the authority to decide which Russian athletes should be cleared to compete in Rio.Bach said the IOC had set a very high bar by imposing strict conditions on the entry of Russians, including a ban on any athletes with prior doping sanctions.RIO DE JANEIRO -- Brazilian police said they rescued the kidnapped mother-in-law of Formula 1 chief Bernie Ecclestone from two men on the outskirts of Sao Paulo.According to police, 67-year-old Aparecida Schunck, who had been held since Friday last week, was not harmed in the operation conducted by Sao Paulos anti-kidnapping division.Schunck is the mother of Fabiana Flosi, married to Ecclestone since 2012.Sao Paulo, Brazils largest city and the center of commerce, for decades has had problems with people being kidnapped and held for ransom, but a dedicated police task force has reduced the crime drastically over the last 15 years.The incident came just ahead of the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro. Authorities say they will be deploying 85,000 troops and soldiers during the Aug. 5-21 competition.RIO DE JANEIRO -- A laptop and team shirts have been stolen from Australias accommodation at the Olympic athletes village while the building was being evacuated because of a small fire, the head of the teams delegation at the Rio Games said.Kitty Chiller said other computer equipment was rifled through but was left behind during the theft on Friday.She said security seems to have improved, but called the theft concerning.Security is high on a long list of many problems -- including the Zika virus, water pollution and slow ticket sales -- that are confronting South Americas first Olympics.RIO DE JANEIRO -- The main ramp of Marina da Gloria, the sailing venue of the Rio de Janeiro Olympics, partially collapsed. Organizers said no one was injured in the incident that raises further questions about the quality of construction in the Olympic host city.Philip Wilkinson, a spokesman for the Rio 2016 organizing committee, placed the blame on high tides and a stormy sea. The collapsed structure, which is temporary, is the main access point for boats to reach the water.Wilkinson also said the construction company responsible for the project has been contacted and is expected to make the repairs within four days. Sailing competitions begin Aug. 8.Training will not be affected as the boats can use the permanent ramp to the side of the damaged structure, the Rio 2016s spokesman said.COLLEGE FOOTBALLAUSTIN, Texas -- The sexual assault scandal that took down Baylor Universitys president and revered football coach also found a problem with a bedrock of the schools faith-based education: a student conduct code banning alcohol, drugs and premarital sex that may have driven some victims into silence.Investigators with the Pepper Hamilton law firm who dug into Baylors response to sexual assault claims determined the schools rigid approach to drugs, alcohol and sex and perceived judgmental responses to victims who reported being raped created barriers to reporting assaults. Some women faced the prospect of their family being notified.A number of victims were told that if they made a report of rape, their parents would be informed of the details of where they were and what they were doing, said Chad Dunn, a Houston attorney who represents six women who have sued Baylor under the anonymous identification of Jane Doe.The nations largest Baptist university is a notably conservative place in one of the most conservative states in the country. Dancing on campus was banned until 1996. Fornication, adultery and homosexual acts were included in an official list of misconduct until May 2015, and the current policy stresses that physical sexual intimacy is to be expressed in the context of marital fidelity.PRO FOOTBALLWASHINGTON -- The NFL and the Commission on Presidential Debates rejected Republican Donald Trumps claim that Democrats rigged the debate schedule so that two of the three debates would occur during football games.In a statement, the commission said it started working more than 18 months ago to identify all religious and federal holidays as well as baseball and football games and other major events. The commission said it was impossible to avoid all sporting events.On Sept. 26, the night of the first debate, ESPN will carry the Monday night game featuring the Falcons vs. the Saints. On Oct. 9, the second debate will air opposite the Sunday night game featuring the Giants vs. the Packers on NBC.On Friday, Trump accused Clinton of trying to rig the schedule. Unacceptable! he wrote. In an interview on ABCs This Week, Trump said he got a letter from the NFL calling the conflict ridiculous.NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy tweeted on Saturday: While wed obviously wish the Debate Commission could find another night, we did not send a letter to Mr Trump.BASEBALLCLEVELAND -- Serious about winning the World Series, the Indians batted .500 in making a pair of major trades on Sunday.Going all in for October, the AL Central leader acquired All-Star left-handed reliever Andrew Miller from the New York Yankees for four minor leaguers.The deal came less than 12 hours after the Indians had reached agreement on the parameters of a swap with Milwaukee for Brewers All-Star catcher Jonathan Lucroy. However, that trade was stopped by Lucroy, who refused to waive his no-trade clause and turned down a chance to join a contender.Lucroys decision would have been a huge blow to the Indians if not for the addition of Miller, who will help Cleveland manager Terry Francona shorten games and gives the Indians a legitimate shot at winning their first World Series title since 1948.The Indians sent four minor leaguers, including highly touted outfielder Clint Frazier, to New York for the 31-year-old Miller, who was expected to arrive in Cleveland on Sunday night and could be ready to join the bullpen when the club opens a four-game series against Minnesota.In another trade, the Orioles bolstered their rotation by acquiring left-hander Wade Miley from Seattle for Triple-A lefty Ariel Miranda.

None of them made global headlines except for Conor McGregors,?on Wednesday.Its obvious that a UFC lightweight champion obtaining a license to box is of great interest.

Boxing license or not, there remain very tall hurdles between this fantasy fight and reality.But if McGregors rise has taught us anything, its that doubting him doesnt always work out. Thatll never happen are risky words when talking about Mystic Mac, whose words get a lot of attention because, as he has stated literally hundreds of times, his actions tend to back them up.And lately, he has been talking a lot about Mayweather and a $100 million payday.McGregor made history at UFC 205 on Nov. 12 by becoming the first fighter to hold two UFC titles simultaneously. Afterward, he laid out his expectations.Since the UFC sold for $4 billion earlier this year, McGregor says he has had no business discussions with new ownership WME-IMG. He expected that to change.Theyve got to come talk to me now, thats all I know, said McGregor, shortly after UFC 205. Both belts, chunk of money, little family on the way -- you want me to stick around and keep doing what Im doing? Lets talk. I want ownership now. I want the equal share.

There was, however, the UFCs recent announcement that?he had relinquished one of his titles -- the 145-pound belt he won less than a year ago.That announcement took place during last weekends televised UFC event. McGregor didnt appear on the broadcast and wasnt involved in the news at all. He has yet to even publicly comment on it.In order for McGregor to use that newly acquired boxing license, he would need to either obtain the UFCs blessing or challenge certain aspects of his contract. The first seems unlikely, and the second requires money and time.But looking back at his UFC 205 comments, which include his intention to take time off until at least May for the birth of his first child, wasnt McGregor suggesting he now has both? Hes 28 and coming off a year in which he says he netted $40 million.He has a carrot -- or at the very least, the perception of a carrot -- in this mysterious Mayweather fight (or any boxing match, for that matter). As a boxer, he would also be entitled to various protections of the Muhammad Ali Boxing Reform Act, which currently does not extend to mixed martial artists.Does this license show hes actually headed in that direction? Or is it entirely symbolic, to create more leverage with the UFC?The best bet is the latter, but its hard to be sure of anything when it comes to McGregor and his plans. Right now, thats a troubling reality if youre the UFC.
