eir Wallabies walloping when they tackle Argentina on Antworten

CROMWELL, Conn. -- Daniel Berger says hes healthy again and hoping to regain the form that helped him to his first PGA Tour title two months ago.Last years rookie of the year followed his first-round 66 with a 67 on Friday for a share of the lead in the Travelers Championship.He matched 2012 Travelers champion Marc Leishman, Russell Henley and Tyrone Van Aswegen at 7-under 133. Leishman shot 68, Henley shot 65, and Van Aswegen 66.Berger strained his shoulder at the U.S. Open after winning in Memphis at the St. Jude Classic, his fourth top-10 finish in seven starts. The injury forced him to withdraw after hitting his opening tee shot at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational and he didnt return until last week at the PGA Championship.I definitely played better than I thought I would, he said. This is my seventh round in six weeks and for a professional golfer thats not a lot.Four players, including 49-year-old University of Hartford graduate Jerry Kelly, were a shot behind. Kelly had a 70 after sharing the first-round lead with a 64.Blayne Barber had the best round of the day with a 64 of his own to top the seven players two strokes back.The wind got up a little bit today, so you had to be playing good golf to shoot a really good number, Leishman said.U.S. Olympians Bubba Watson, Patrick Reed and Matt Kuchar remained in contention. Kuchar shot a 67 to move to reach 4 under. Reed, who turned 26 on Friday, also shot a 67 and was tied with Watson at 3 under. Watson, the defending champion, had a 70.Seventy-three players made the cut by shooting even par or better.If youre close to the lead, youre close to missing the cut, said Paul Casey, who lost last year in a playoff and was among those tied for ninth place at 5 under.Henley, who is playing this tournament for the first time, joined the leaders by sinking a 20-foot birdie on his final hole, the par-4 ninth.It was just a little bit tricky, he said. I think with no wind on this course we would have seen double digits (under par) by now.Van Aswegen put up an early 66 and led most of the day as the wind picked up and the greens dried out.The 34-year-old, who is looking for his first PGA Tour win, followed up on his 67 Thursday with a second straight bogey-free round. His four birdies included a 45-foot putt on the par-4 10th.You make a birdie on 10, youre gaining a stroke on the field there, he said. Im hitting the ball quite well and putting really well.Kelly had five birdies and five bogeys. He won the last of his titles in 2009.Im tired, he said. Im going to watch a movie and see if I can rest a little bit and see if the old bones will work for two more days.Reed, one of six Olympians playing in the tournament, turned 26 on Friday. He was presented with a cupcake on the first tee, and blew out the birthday candle on top with a practice swing. Watson then led the crowd at several holes in rousing renditions of Happy Birthday.Half the people were chanting `Happy Birthday and the other half chanting for all of us, `USA, so it was cool, he said.Andrew Loupe, among the leaders after the first round, held a brief one-stroke lead Friday before on his fourth hole of the day, the par-4 14th. He hit his drive out of bounds left, overcompensated right on his next drive and finished with a seven on the hole and missed the cut after shooting a 76.The most unusual play of the day came from Vaughn Taylor, who put his tee shot on the par-4 17th hole in the courses signature lake. After conferring with a rules official, he was allowed to take a drop from the opposite shore near the 16th tee, because it was no closer to the hole. That gave him a better angle at the green. After a long cart ride around the lake, he was able to make bogey, despite clipping a corporate tent with his approach shot.Matt Jones shot a second consecutive 69, despite suffering from what officials described as nausea and dehydration during his round. He took a 15 minute break at the turn and received three Intravenous bags of fluid.After two days of sun and temperatures in the mid-80s, the forecast for Saturday afternoon include the possibility of severe thunderstorms. Because of that, tournament officials will have the players going out early in threesomes off both the first and 10th tees.Cheap NFL Jerseys Outlet . Fellow centre Pavel Datsyuk remains out because of a concussion. Zetterberg has 11 goals and 19 assists for a team-high 30 points, and Datsyuk has a team-high 12 goals and 11 assists. Discount Jerseys Near Me . -- Its been a long road back for Sean Bergenheim. . -- James Young couldnt wait to apply those tweaks to his jump shot, and the first one he made against UT Arlington told him it could be a good night. Authentic NFL Jerseys Cheap . -- PGA TOUR Canada member Steve Saunders took a three-stroke lead Saturday in the Web. Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys . Bjorn, who had a 36-hole total of 8-under 134, made a testing six-foot putt to save par on the 16th and a birdie on the 17th before bogeying the final hole after a misjudged approach shot. American Kevin Streelman was in second place after shooting a 69.Dan Biggar believes that public criticism is part and parcel of the game as Wales look to bounce back from their Wallabies walloping when they tackle Argentina on Saturday.But the Wales fly-half has also cited a famous number 10 from another sport - England football captain Wayne Rooney - as an example of when he feels things can go too far.Rooney has unusually been a substitute for Manchester United several times this season and was also on the bench for England in their World Cup qualifier against Slovenia - a combination of events which sparked sometimes fierce critical comment about him.Biggar and company also faced headlines of the wrong type this week following a 32-8 defeat against Australia that was Wales heaviest home defeat for 10 years.I am not on social media, but of course you pick up little things and what people say in articles and that, but for me, its just part and parcel of the game, said Biggar, who wins his 50th cap this weekend.The way I look at it, Im in a great position.Imagine being someone like Wayne Rooney over the last three months and the press, their disgusting treatment of one of Englands better players. If I think Im having a tough time, just look at him.Living and playing in Wales can be very much a goldfish bowl. Sometimes, it can be nice to be outside of that and get on with your day-to-day life.But I dont take any notice of the criticism and, ultimately, everyone wants Wales to do well and get better.If everyone had gone out there and not tried (last Saturday) and rolled over, been lax and not hurt by it, fair enough, but it is not as if we werent trying.Its always easier to slow the tape down and criticise after the event.We were hugely disappointed, weve spoken very honestlly about it, but now its about focusing on Argentina, putting a better performance in, enjoying ourselves a bit more and taking a little bit of pressure off ourselves.ddddddddddddWhat Ive learnt over the years is that you cannot change peoples opinions.I watched a little bit of the football last Sunday, went out for food with my wife and did normal things. Was it going to change the result if we stayed in hiding for two days? Is it going to change what people say?Its not going to change a thing. You have just got to be mature about it. A couple of years ago, I would have probably stayed in the house and drawn the curtains.Biggar will be key to Wales hopes of posting a first Test match win since March, aiming to pull the tactical strings for a much-changed team that sees no Jamie Roberts, but Roberts fellow British and Irish Lions Test players Sam Warburton and Alun Wyn Jones both returning.Recent history in the fixture favours Wales, having beaten Argentina in four of the countries last five meetings, but Biggar knows a powerful Pumas challenge awaits.Argentina have got a Super Rugby franchise now, they were semi-finalists and finished fourth at the World Cup last year and they have got some world-class players, he added.We will have to put in a very good performance - certainly better than last week - to pick up a result.The way they play the game, there is going to be plenty of off-loads, and I wouldnt have thought there would be too much kicking from them. I am sure it will be an entertaining game and a real challenge for us - we are being prepared for a full-blooded Test match. ' ' '
