You've really got to be creative. Poulter insists the lack of a major title from his resume will not haunt him, though he's not quite ready to pass the mantle to 13-year-old son Luke - who will leave Birkdale as a victor with money in his pocket, whatever Dad achieves this weekend.
However, no pre-tournament favorite has won the British Open - or the Open championship as Britons call it - since 2001. "So that speaks a lot to the ball-striking of the day". By the time he arrived for his second round on a blustery day at Royal Birkdale, he had a good idea what this British Open is all about, and somewhat of an idea what he is all about.
Follow along for live coverage on Golf Channel and NBC as the best in the world compete for the coveted Claret Jug. "But I enjoy it because as long as I approach it positively and recognise that this is what you want to feel - because you're in a position you want to be in - then the easier it is to hit solid shots and to create solid rounds".
He played in 64 games for Chicago in 2015-16 and 64 for NY last season, all of them as a starter. If Rose joined the Cavaliers , it would mean that between them, Golden State and Cleveland would have every NBA MVP from 2009 through 2016.
It is no secret, of course , that five of the last six Open winners used the Scottish Open as a warm-up and Kuchar was the only player out of the three leaders who was at Dundonald Links last week , finishing joint-fourth behind Cabrera Bello.
Later it was noted that if he were to leave OH, he would prefer to play for the San Antonio Spurs , Miami Heat , New York Knicks and the Minnesota Timberwolves . ESPN , citing National Basketball Association sources , on Friday was the first to report Irving's trade request. A four-time All-Star, Irving has spent six seasons with the Cavs, who selected him with the No.
It took him to one under but three bogeys around the turn dragged him back and he goes into the weekend at two over. That put him within three shots of the lead held by Matt Kuchar , a seemingly unthinkable prospect at the same point yesterday.
The Knicks want to land him , but they won't give up everything. Sources told ESPN , Irving wants to play in a situation where he can be more of a focal point. Whether or not you're of the belief that Anthony can be a No. 1 scoring option, it stands to reason that the 10-time All-Star could help James and the Cavaliers contend.
Chris Froome is set to win his fourth Tour de France title after increasing his lead in Saturday's penultimate time trial in Marseille . A day after the final mountain test, the organisers threw the longest stage of the entire Tour at the riders as they rode 222.5km from Embrun.
His shot out of the rough barely rolled into a pot bunker to the right of the 16th green, leaving the ball on a slight slope near the back edge. And I had a couple of putts that were within 10-12 feet that missed. Masters champion Sergio Garcia overcame a shoulder injury which had him fearing he would be unable to complete his second round, but the Spaniard lifted his spirits with a superb eagle-two at the sixth and birdies at 15 and 17 got him back to one over before he dropped his third shot ...
His first birdie of a turbulent day provided the catalyst for a robust fix job and further gains at the 15th, 17th and 18th had him fist-pumping with a sense of gritty satisfaction. However, the world No.6 concedes his golf diversion scratchy, and he's only planning to compete instead of hoping to win. There's work to do before he can win ugly this week, and scope of course for him to win pretty.
I felt that today. Poulter played just 13 tournaments last year but underlined his potential with a second place in the Players' Championship , the unofficial fifth major, earlier this year. It's easy to get down when golf seems to be pretty hard. And it's easy to get down when golf seems to be pretty hard. But a Poulter victory, though highly improbable given the likes of multiple-major winners Spieth, McIlroy, and Bubba Watson populating the top of the leaderboard, would make for a much ...

Irving, who also recently told Sports Illustrated the Cavs were in a "peculiar" place this offseason, was chosen by Cleveland with the No. 1 pick in the 2011 NBA Draft. Then James decided he wanted to go back to northeast OH, and the plans involving Irving were understandably thrown out the window. The Knicks will have to throw in a couple more pieces to make this deal work, but short of trading Kristaps Porzingis , they should do whatever it takes.
But in an eventful back nine, he produced back-to-back birdies at 11 and 12 despite some wayward play at times, before a bogey at the par-3 14th and then an eagle three at the next hole. A birdie putt at the 15th lipped out but Grace responded by holing a long effort at the par-four next, before getting to eight under with a two-putt gain at the par-five 17th.
Only Boasson Hagen and Nikias Arndt took the shorter route . Primoz Roglic burst away to win a fearsome stage 17 of the Tour de France and Chris Froome extended his lead to 27 seconds on a gruelling day on which Marcel Kittel was a notable casualty.
Chelsea's Michael Emelano spoke ahead of the move, and the Express carry the following quotes: "It is fantastic Kurt has chosen to commit his future to Chelsea".

Malignaggi said his code is for sparring details to stay in the gym and they both did their share of sh*t talking and showboating. I don't have many people who can match my trash talk, but Conor definitely can. There's a method to his madness. Conor posted a photo early Friday showing his first sparring session with Malignaggi and he can be seen taunting the former boxing champion with his hands behind his back, and while wearing Gucci trunks nonetheless.
Spieth missed the green just twice in his round, his putting was solid and when he did get into tricky rough, he retained his composure. Kuchar finished joint fourth in last week's Scottish Open to prepare for Royal Birkdale. He called the par save "massive".

As those two victories testify, his putting is back to where it was when he won the The Masters and US Open two years ago and that makes him unsafe on any course.

McIlroy, the four-time major victor, confessed that he felt "anxious" and "timid" heading to the first tee but admitted that some encouraging words from his caddie, JP Fitzgerald, helped spark a resurgence.
