Stenson wins LIV Golf event, gets $4 million in debut –

Stenson wins LIV Golf event, gets $4 million in debut -

BEDMINSTER, N.J. (AP) — Henrik Stenson’s decision that cost him the European Ryder Cup captaincy paid large and immediate dividends Sunday when he won the LIV Golf Invitational at Bedminster and picked up more than $4 million for three days’ work.

Staked to a three-shot lead going into the third and final round at Trump National, Stenson opened with a 20-foot birdie putt and never led anyone closer than two shots the rest of the way.

He closed with a 2-under 69 for a two-shot victory over Matthew Wolf (64) and Dustin Johnson, who birdied the last hole for a 68.

Stenson, five years removed from beating a field of more than 20 players, picked up $4 million for winning and an additional $375,000 for his team finishing second.

The big payoff — not including a signing bonus reported to be about $50 million — comes less than two weeks after he 46-year-old Swede decided to join the Saudi-funded LIV Golf series.

Stenson had pledged full support to the European tour when he became Ryder Cup captain and March, and the tour stripped him of the job four months later when he changed his mind.

“I guess we can agree I played like a captain,” Stenson said on the LIV Golf telecast.

He finished at 11-under 202.

Asked by the LIV-paid broadcaster if he felt validated by the win, Stenson chose not to engage and replied, “It’s been a good first week.”

“It’s been a busy 10 days. I’m extremely proud I managed to focus as well as I did,” he said.

Stenson won the Hero World Challenge in December 2019 in the Bahamas, the holiday event hosted by Tiger Woods with a 20-man field. Before that, he won the Wyndham Championship in 2017. And while he felt pressure in the final hour, it didn’t always look like it.

Stenson poured in an 8-foot birdie putt on the 14th that gave him a three-shot lead with four holes remaining, two of them par 5s. But he took four to get down from left of the green on the par-5 15th. Two holes later, Stenson made a 10-foot putt for par to take a two-shot lead down the par 5 closing hole.

“The putt on 17 was massive to keep the cushion coming up the last,” Stenson said.

Johnson now has finished eight, fourth and tied or second in the three LIV Golf Invitationals. His team, “4 Aces,” has won the last two times, paying $750,000 to each player. In three events since Johnson reportedly received a $150 million signing fee, the two-time major champion has made over $5.2 million on the course.

Carlos Ortiz of Mexico (68) finished fourth, while Patrick Reed (69) was fifth.

Phil Mickelson shot an even-par 71, only the second time in nine rounds of LIV Golf that Mickelson has shot par or better. He finished 35th.

The LIV Golf Invitational is off for a month during the FedEx Cup playoffs on the PGA Tour, returning over Labor Day weekend about an hour west of Boston, and then two weeks later plays in the Chicago suburbs.

Coleman narrowly wins 100-metre event with season-best effort at NYC Grand Prix | CBC Sports

Coleman narrowly wins 100-metre event with season-best effort at NYC Grand Prix | CBC Sports

American Christian Coleman won the men’s 100 metres in a season-best 9.92 seconds and Aleia Hobbs overcame compatriot Sha’Carri Richardson in the women’s 100 metres at the NYC Grand Prix on Sunday.

The reigning world champion Coleman, who returned to action in January after serving an 18-month suspension for breaching anti-doping whereabouts rules, said he was pleased after finishing under 10 seconds in the event for the first time this year.

“I felt like that was a really good race,” said Coleman, who took third at the Prefontaine Classic last month.

“I felt a lot better in the second half of my race than I did last time — and I feel like that was really all that I was missing.”

Jamaican Ackeem Blake finished second with a time of 9.95 seconds and American Marvin Bracy took third (10.03).

With throngs of young fans cheering her name outside the media zone, Richardson said she was thrilled to produce a 10.85 in her third 100m race of the season, even after Tokyo relay silver medallist Hobbs muscled her way to the top of the podium in 10.83.

“I feel phenomenal,” she told reporters. “I feel fantastic.”

American Teahna Daniels finished third.

A final tuneup ahead of the USA Outdoor Track and Field Championships, the track on Randall’s Island experienced speedy times under windy conditions.

American Devon Allen produced a world-leading 12.84 seconds to overcome world champion Grant Holloway by more than two-tenths of a second in the men’s 110m hurdles.

“I thought I was going to break the world record today, so we’ll have to wait for another race,” said twice Olympian Allen, who is juggling a career in the National Football League (NFL) with his athletic ambitions.

Elsewhere at the World Athletics Continental Tour Gold event, twice world bronze medallist Ajee Wilson won the women’s 800m in 2:00.62.

Charl Schwartzel wins LIV opener, securing $4.75M US from golf’s richest event | CBC Sports

Charl Schwartzel wins LIV opener, securing $4.75M US from golf's richest event | CBC Sports

Former Masters champion Charl Schwartzel banked $4.75 million US on Saturday by winning the richest tournament in golf history, while the event’s Saudi backers faced renewed backlash after a 9/11 victims’ group called for American players to withdraw from the rebel series.

Schwartzel held on for a one-shot victory at the inaugural LIV Golf event outside London to secure the $4 million prize for the individual victory — along with another $750,000 from his share of the $3 million purse earned by his four-man Stinger team for topping the team rankings.

Schwartzel, the 2011 winner at Augusta National, collected more prize money from winning the three-day, 54-hole event than he had from the last four years combined. It came at a cost, though, having resigned his membership of the PGA Tour to play on the unsanctioned series without a waiver.

“Never in my wildest dreams did I think we could play for that much money in golf,” Schwartzel, who had not won a PGA or European tour event since 2016, told the crowd.

Pressed in the news conference, he dismissed criticism of the windfall coming from the Saudi sovereign wealth fund.

“Where the money comes from is not something … that I’ve ever looked at playing in my 20 years career,” the South African said. “I think if I start digging everywhere where we played, you could find fault in anything.”

Fellow South African Hennie Du Plessis, who was selected for Stinger by team captain Louis Oosthuizen in the draft, earned $2.875 million by finishing second at Centurion Club, located between Hemel Hempstead and St. Albans.

Schwartzel entered the final day with a three-shot lead and did just enough to hold off Du Plessis despite finishing with a 2-over 72 for a 7-under total of 203.

It is the first of eight events in the first year of LIV Golf, which began against the backdrop of the PGA Tour banning players who signed up. The European tour has yet to comment on any sanctions for players who jumped to the series without its approval.

WATCH l Saudi-funded golf league poaches top talent from PGA tour:

Saudi-funded golf league poaches top talent from PGA tour

The LIV Golf league funded by the Saudi government is poaching some of the world’s top golfers, including Dustin Johnson, to leave the PGA Tour.

Twenty players have now defected from the PGA Tour, with Patrick Reed the latest former Masters champion confirmed on Saturday as signing up to LIV Golf as the final round was being completed.

However, the lucrative rewards for joining the Public Investment Fund-backed series have not been enough to entice any players ranked in the world’s top 10.

Reed, who has won almost $37 million in a decade on the PGA Tour, is ranked 36th. The 31-year-old American’s only major win was the 2018 Masters.

Having appeared at three Ryder Cups, where he has been one of the brashest characters on the American team, Reed’s decision could see him ineligible for selection in the future.

Reed said he would make his debut on the second stop of the LIV Golf series in Portland, Oregon, on June 30-July 2.

Pat Perez, the 46-year-old American who is ranked 168th in the world, also joined the breakaway on Saturday, saying he wants to travel less after 21 years on the PGA Tour. He made no mention on the LIV live broadcast about the riches on offer.

Criticism towards players

Saudi Arabia’s track record of human rights violations has sparked criticism from groups, including Amnesty International, that the country is “sportswashing” its image by investing in signing up sports stars.

LIV Golf CEO Greg Norman, who would not speak to the media at the event, called the series a “force for good” in a speech at the victory ceremony, without addressing criticism of the Saudi project.

LIV Golf plays up the financial largesse. Yasir Al-Rumayyan, governor of PIF, said on stage that there would be a prize of $54 million for any player who could hit an implausible 54 at a LIV event.

For many in the United States, Saudi Arabia will forever be associated with the collapse of the World Trade Towers and the deaths of nearly 3,000 people on Sept. 11, 2001. All but four of the 19 hijackers on 9/11 were Saudi citizens, and the Saudi kingdom was the birthplace of Osama bin Laden, the head of al-Qaida and mastermind of the attack.

Terry Strada, the national chairperson of 9/11 Families United, has sent a letter to representatives of LIV Golf stars calling on them to reconsider their participation in the series. Her husband, Tom, died when a hijacked plane flew into the World Trade Center.

“Given Saudi Arabia’s role in the death of our loved ones and those injured on 9/11 — your fellow Americans — we are angered that you are so willing to help the Saudis cover up this history in their request for ‘respectability,”‘ Strada wrote, accusing the players of betraying U.S. interests.

Strada’s letter was sent to agents for Reed as well as Phil Mickelson, Dustin Johnson, Bryson DeChambeau and Kevin Na.

“When you partner with the Saudis, you become complicit with their whitewash, and help give them the reputational cover they so desperately crave — and are willing to pay handsomely to manufacture,” Strada wrote.

“The Saudis do not care about the deep-rooted sportsmanship of golf or its origins as a gentleman’s game built upon core values of mutual respect and personal integrity. They care about using professional golf to whitewash their reputation, and they are paying you to help them do it.”

Victims’ families are trying to hold Saudi Arabia accountable in New York, despite its government’s insistence that any allegation of complicity in the terrorist attacks is “categorically false.”

LSU track and field wins six events at SEC championships; Tiger women take third, men seventh

LSU track and field wins six events at SEC championships; Tiger women take third, men seventh

The LSU women’s track and field team came up just a little short in the race for the team title Saturday night at the Southeastern Conference outdoor championships.

But if coach Dennis Shaver could have somehow squeezed just one more race out of sprint sensation Favour Ofili, the Tigers probably would have come away with the biggest trophy from the meet held in Oxford, Mississippi.

Ofili scorched the Ole Miss track in winning the 100 and 200 meters and ran second leg on the Tigers’ winning 4×100-meter relay.

The sophomore’s gallant effort came up just short, however, when Florida came from just off the pace in the final two events to take the women’s title with 107 points.

Arkansas was third with 103 points and LSU was third with 96½, while Kentucky (85) and Texas A&M (84) rounded out the top five.

Arkansas won the men’s title with 121 points and Alabama was second with 116. Tennessee (84), Florida (78) and Georgia (75) completed the top five. LSU finished seventh with 70.

With Ofili scoring 22½ points by herself, LSU held a scant 1½-point lead over Florida with 19 of 21 events in the books.

But the Gators got a second-place finish from Parker Valby in the 5,000 meters and clinched the title with a fifth-place effort from its 4×400 relay team to hold off Arkansas.

Ofili was one of the big stars when she outdueled Kentucky’s Abby Steiner in the two short sprints and teamed with Alia Armstrong, Tionna Beard-Brown and Thelma Davies to win the 4×100 relay over Kentucky.

After running the second leg on the relay that got the baton around in a season’s-best time of 42.59 seconds, while Kentucky ran a 42.63.

It was the sixth consecutive win for LSU in the event at the SEC meet.

Ofili later came back to win the 100 in 10.93 seconds while running into a slight headwind. That tied her personal record she set in the LSU Invitational on April 30.

It was the 21st title in the event for the LSU women in 41 SEC championship meets. Steiner was second in 11.02 seconds.

Later, Ofili got the best of Steiner once again in the 200. Ofili, the collegiate record holder at 21.96 seconds, won with a 22.04 while Steiner nearly caught Ofili at the finish line in running a 22.07.

Armstrong provided the fourth win of the day for LSU in the 100-meter hurdles when she won with a slightly wind-aided time of 12.46 seconds.

Rival Grace Stark of Florida, who won the NCAA indoor 60-meter hurdles, fell going over the sixth of 10 hurdles, but Armstrong had a clear lead by then and coasted to the victory.

The men’s team had two wins Saturday as Eric Edwards Jr. made it a sweep for the Tigers in the hurdles and Sean Bodie-Dixon took the triple jump crown.

Edwards won the 110 hurdles with a PR of 13.28 seconds and Bodie-Dixon took the triple jump crown with a best of 53 feet, 8¼ inches.

Teammate Apalos Edwards gave LSU a 1-2 finish in the triple jump when he popped a personal-best 53-3½ on his final attempt to better his old PR by nearly 2½ feet.

Bush Wins Four Events at Rhodes 7-Way Meet - Harding University Athletics

MEMPHIS, Tenn. – Sophomore Dakarai Bush had a hand in half of 16th-ranked Harding’s eight event victories Friday at the Rhodes 7-Way Meet.

The Tatum, Texas, native won the 400 meters in 48.28, won the 110 hurdles in 14.27, ran the second leg of the victorious 4×100-meter relay (41.89), and ran the anchor leg of the winning 4×400-meter relay (3:12.16).

16th-Ranked Harding Somen's Track Wins 12 Events at Rhodes 7-Way Meet - Harding University Athletics

MEMPHIS, Tenn. – Harding women’s outdoor track and field team, ranked 16th nationally in NCAA Division II, won 12 of the 19 events Friday at the Rhodes 7-Way Meet.
