USPGA: Brooks Koepka sets records, Woods goes down, MLV 18th – news feed – Major tournaments

Brooks Koepka continued his festival in the second round of the PGA Championship to lead with the lowest score in the history of the Majors (128) and the biggest margin on the second after two rounds (7 shots)! This is already the third record in two days for Koepka, after his 63 opening card. With a score of -12 after 36 holes, the world number three pushes Jordan Spieth and Adam Scott to seven lengths. Daniel Berger, Kelly Kraft, Matt Wallace, Luke List and Dustin Johnson are at the foot of the podium at -4. Justin Rose (9th) and Tommy Fleetwood (10th) are right ahead of Mike Lorenzo-Vera who clings to the top 20 under par (-1) with a card of 71. Phil Mickelson and Francesco Molinari are in the total (26th ). But the surprise came from Tiger Woods. The winner of the Masters last month did not pass the cut after a day too rough with his driver and putter.

America's Nines Tournament appears to show off the rugby league

TORONTO – Lamport Stadium has become a paradise for both rugby league and union in Toronto late, hosting both Wolfpack and Arrows.

On Saturday, Lamport will host another form of rugby league in the first America Nines Tournament with Canada, taking on the United States, Jamaica and an "Emerging Nations" page called Latin Heat.

Nines is to rugby league which sevens is to rugby union. It is played with nine players on each side within two nine minutes half.

For Canada Wolverine's coach Ben Fleming, it is a rare chance to get his players together – at least some of them – together.

"It is always challenging to come together with players at best," said Fleming, who took talent from Canada, Australia, England and New Zealand to World Cup qualifiers in November last year.

"When tournaments come together and games come together, it's great to get the team back together. They are always rejuvenated when they come together again."

Canada's Captain Eddie Bilborough is one of five recurring players from the Wolverines team who missed the World Cup qualification. The others are Emil Borggren, Scyler Dumas, Michael Mastroianni and Jason Park.

Lack of funds has prevented Fleming from bringing players abroad.

Like seventh, fewer players mean more space with teams who want to get the ball to speedsters.

"It will be full of fitters and faster individuals," Fleming said.

The hope is that the tournament will show continental talent and open more doors to the sport.

Jamaica defeated Canada 38-8 and US 16-10 in US Rugby League World Cup qualifiers – with the 13-man version of the game – last November in Jacksonville.

"America is probably the team to beat," said Fleming, who himself played for Wolverines. "They have a couple of players who have played at a high level abroad."

Jamaica will also have some speedsters.

But he also likes what he sees in his side.

"We just have to play the right footie. We've been trying to prepare as much as possible with the obstacles we have in front of us. The team looks pretty sharp."

The tournament is a round-robin format in which the two top players play for the title.

Wolverines Roster

David Astley, Scyler Dumas, Jason Park, Ray Bissonette, Steve Piatek, Michael Mastroianni, Danny Tupou Kaloudonu, Nick Hails, Emil Borggren, Mikkel Borggren, Steven Adu, Ethan Langs, Andrew Porter, Eddie Bilborough, Andrew Giguere, Charles Curran, Tony Felix.

rainbow armbands and an action plan against homophobia

SCAN SPORT – The captains of the Ligue 1 and Ligue 2 teams as well as the referees will wear armbands in the colors of the LGTB community to join the World Day Against Homophobia.

The Professional Football League has decided to join the World Day against Homophobia scheduled Friday, May 17 on the occasion of the 37th day of Ligue 1 and the 38th of Ligue 2. In solidarity with the LGTB community ( Lesbians, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender), team captains, coaches, match delegates and referees will all wear rainbow armbands, emblematic of the LGBT community. In 2014 and 2016, the L1 and L2 players had worn laces with these colors. Several professional clubs have also decided to change their logo for this cause.

But the support of French football is not limited to these good symbolic intentions against discrimination on the ground. Fighting homophobia "does not mean simply sending a press release when things go wrong, fighting is finding and above all setting up a complete system (…) to permanently eradicate" the negative attitude "of a few individuals, "Nathalie Boy de la Tour, president of the LFP, told the press.

A report card to report a homophobic act in a stadium

The Professional Football League (LFP) has therefore announced a real "action plan" to fight homophobia in stadiums. In collaboration with several associations such as SOS Homophobia, Foot Ensemble, PanamBoyz United and DILCRA, a report card will allow any spectator to report "a discriminating act or insult, whether racist, sexist or homophobic According to its president.

A repressive component

This action plan will also include a repressive component. "At some point (it is necessary) to know whistle the end of the recreation and to pronounce sanctions against those who continue to rot the atmosphere in the stadiums", where one still hears "fags or enc … permanently" , pleaded Bertrand Lambert, president of PanamBoyz & Girlz United, an "inclusive" Parisian football club.

In May, the disciplinary committee of the LFP imposed a fine of 10,000 euros to the club of Grenoble (L2) for an "insulting banner", while Lens (L2) was sanctioned by a private session suspended for "Homophobic songs" and a 50,000 euro fine, a record amount. "These fines do not fall into the void, they serve to do prevention work behind", including funding training for fans, said Lambert.

Tennis: Toni Nadal names the three favorites to win the French opening

Toni Nadal has named his French open favorites (Image: Getty)

Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic and Dominic Thiem are the three favorites to win the upcoming French opening, according to Toni Nadal.

The Spanish big Nadal will try to defend his title and win a 12th French opening at Roland Garros, starting at the end of the month.

But Nadal didn't seem as invincible as he once did on clay and he suffered a semi-final defeat to Stefanos Tsitsipas at the Madrid Open last week.

Djokovic won that event and Uncle Toni sees the Serbian as a favorite to win the French along with his nephew Rafael and the consistent Thiem.

Asked if Nadal would win a 12th French Open title, Toni told Tennis World USA: "I don't know Rafael hasn't played perfectly on Madrid, Monte Carlo or Barcelona.

"I think he's favorite with Novak Djokovic and Dominic Thiem. Roger Federer has also won a record 20 Grand Slam titles, so it's normal for him to be one of the competitors.

"Less (so) than Djokovic and Rafael, but if he plays well, he can beat one of the best men."

Toni Nadal also discussed tennis & # 39; next generation and said there are more talented youngsters ready to break through winning the Grand Slams.

Asked which young player would be the first to win a major, he added: "Some time ago I thought Alexander Zverev, but he hasn't played well in Slams.

"But he beat Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic in the London ATP Finals, he won in Madrid last year and he has the chance to be the next.

"Anyone can win, there are many who play well: Tsitsipas, Shapovalov, Felix Auger-Aliassime … Kyrgios, if he is focused, especially at Wimbledon, he can do it."

At 22-year-old Spanishman Jaume Munar, Toni Nadal said: "He's good, but he needs to improve. In the coming years he will be among the best men.

A "b'offene G'schicht": This is how Austria reacts to the Strache video – politics

The Austrian Vice-Chancellor Heinz-Christian Strache is said to have promised state orders to a supposed Russian oligarchic niece – against electoral aid. This is shown by secret video recordings, which the "Spiegel" and the "Süddeutsche Zeitung" unveiled on Friday. The Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz (ÖVP) has not commented yet and announces a press conference for Saturday. The FPÖ politicians themselves speak of a "purely private" meeting in a "relaxed, informal and humid holiday atmosphere". We have summarized some reactions from Austrian media.

The standard: "No one can be so drunk"

"Soberly: For how drunk Strache and Gudenus actually think their coalition partner ÖVP, that they can assume that after all the boycalls and brush strokes that have moved the country in the past 500 days of the FPÖ government participation, this story How drunk do they feel about their voters who have always assured them that they are the only cleanmen in the nation?

That they would ensure that orders would be awarded only very clean? That party donations would be accepted only after meticulous examination and only by ordinary ordinary people? Or that the evil media would just report the most vicious thing about the FPÖ, where the blues would be the purest innocence bubbles? ", Conrad Seidl comments "Standard" – and hopes for an exciting election campaign.

Wiener Zeitung: "Without pants, on video"

"The situation was obviously a purposeful trap, with the scenery so covertly cliché – along with the allegedly heavy-handed Russian oligarchs niece – that it is almost the most painful realization that two who feel themselves called to highest office do not There is no trace of a thought that goes beyond the ego, "writes Walter Hämmerle, editor-in-chief of the Wiener Zeitung in the editorial. And regarding Kurz: "The Chancellor is about to make a decision that will shape his own personal political future, one way or the other."

OÖNachrichten: "Short has to act"

"Images do not lie, they can not be denied, relativised or diminished. Therefore, the usual defense machinery of the FPÖ will not be able to do anything against these images, these pictures are not preceded by a hostile "lying press" (a common justification), they are not a "fake" and nothing will help, depending on the momentum of the situation To talk out evil forces or the alcohol that might have been involved in the game. HC Language, today vice chancellor of the republic, formally the country's third highest official, has maneuvered himself – at that time in the election campaign – into a situation that every reasonable citizen in this country who sees this video will find inexcusable, "commented the Upper-Austrian-News-Editor-in-Chief Gerald Mandlbauer the "Ibiza affair" of the Vice Chancellor.

He is reminiscent of an Austrian interior minister who had to leave after being seen as commercially available to journalists: Ernst Strasser. "What Spiegel and Süddeutsche have now published about HC Sprache and Johann Gudenus is Strasser square," writes Mandlbauer.

Crown: "Attack on Crown planned!"

And what is the newspaper writing about which it was finally in the affair that was to be bought up in part by the supposed Russian investor? The "Kronenzeitung" sees itself as a victim: "The independence of the crown should therefore be sacrificed so that the Freedom Party wins the election", the newspaper writes.

"With courage, attitude and her critical attitude towards the powerful, she (the Kronenzeitung, Anm.) Has always warded off all influences and written a success story.Only committed to her readers, she will continue to do so – in defiance of all powers!", the newspaper comments.

Daniel Berger has tennis in his blood, but has become a top golfer

By nature of his genes Daniel Berger should play tennis.

Of the character of his passion, he plays golf.

On Friday he played a really good golf and shot a four-under-par 66 in the second round of the PGA Championship at Bethpage Black and moved well on the leaderboard on the strength of five birdies, a single bogey and a pair of strong up-and-down pars.

Berger's father Jay was once a prominent player in the 1980s (reaching No. 7 in the world), who became the director of men's tennis for the USTA's development program, which included two stints as an American Olympic coach.

And while Daniel grew up on the tennis courts, he had a sister who took golf lessons. As the story goes, she couldn't get it a couple of times, and Daniel took his place. At age 11, he was stuck on the hook, so to speak, and he soon found himself performing more on the court than the courts.

After two seasons in Florida State, where he was a first-class all-American, Berger began his professional career. He won FedEx St. Jude Classic in 2016 and 2017, climbing as high as 18 in the world rankings. But a finger tip injury sidelined him last season, and he's about to get around to playing well and joining in Puerto Rico in February.

He had taken a month before resumed play at the beginning of the year, an eternity in the life of a 26-year-old player. He needed to fill the time. "I bought a boat. The first month was great," Berger said. "I haven't taken a month off competitive golf in ten years. And then I was so sad."

Bethpage Black got his attention in the PGA this week, and for at least one round he got the sort of attention.

"It's a great championship and you have to perform and you have to play 72 big holes of golf," Berger said. "And halfway through, I've done it. So the challenge will be the next 36 holes, and it won't be easier."

The perfect shot of Pello Bilbao

Since the earthquake of 2009 the city of L'Aquila lives on its knees. Broken and frightened on the crest of a hill in Abruzzo. Two kilometers from the finish, the five escapees were also kneeling on their pedals, with their calculations and their fears. How to manage those final thousand meters in rise after a whole day at runaway pace? Formolo had spent to tie Hamilton and Cattaneo. Gallopin came with the reserve on. The fifth was the Biscayan Pello Bilbao, the one who best knew how to play hide and seek. The one who won.

He is already 29 years old. It is already a cyclist with a past, with experience. The last cartridge had been reserved. He stroked that bullet with the tips of his fingers. Cold blood of accurate sniper. He pointed. And two steps from the banner of the last kilometer he pulled the trigger. He ordered his lungs to carburize. Butt. Without turning. And when, already in the crumbling center of L'Aquila, he looked back, he saw that the victory was his, that it was the others who came up with their legs in ruins. Under the banner he spread his arms and hit his chest so hard it could have been recorded on the Richter scale.

"I was not the one in charge of getting into the leak, but things have turned out that way. In an improvised way »he counted. But once in the breakaway, the Gernika corridor put its mental machinery to work. He had a companion in Astana, Zeits, who was the one who maintained the pulse with the platoon in the port of Svolte di Popoli. Zeits was immolated by Pello as Pello so many times by 'Superman' López or Jon Izagirre. He is a complete cyclist. Good time trialist, resistant in the mountains and with speed in leaks as well. «I lack that final drive to be with those who dispute a great return», He says. It is your challenge. Cross that border. It is close, but it is the step that distinguishes the good from the best. That's it.

Methodical, he has not stopped progressing since he was a kid of the cycling society of Gernika. Entered as Fellow at the Euskadi Foundation and reached the Euskaltel-Euskadi by a shortcut, by the injury of Koldo Fernández de Larrea. The closure of the orange team in 2013 forced him to go down and make merit in the Caja Rural. He made them and the Astana opened the door for him. He has not stopped thanking him with work and triumphs like the stages he has won in the Tour of the Alps, the Dauphiné and now in the Giro, the race that a year ago saw him occupy the sixth final place. Another step In L'Aquila, Pello Bilbao said aloud what cycling already knew. He is a good auctioneer. A cyclist with a goal.

The echo of the earthquake

On the beaches and palm trees of Vasto, starting point, the name of the goal, L'Aquila, reverberated. The echo of that earthquake. More than 300 dead. The wound is still open on that earth shaded by the bulk of the Gran Sasso. It was going to be a fast-paced stage, a fast madness capable of cracking the peloton. In the first two hours it flew over 48 kilometers per hour. At the UAE, the team of the happy leader, Valerio Conti, his work accumulated, so much so that Vincenzo Nibali's Bahrain had to come to his aid. Only thus they hunted the leak in which they went Pello Bilbao, Izagirre, Plaza, Rojas, Nieve, Gallopin and Madouas.

By then the Giro had claimed two more casualties, that of Gaviria, an injured sprinter, and that of De Plus, the best gregarious on the mountain of Roglic. I will miss you. The Giro does not wait. And less for the broken road to L'Aquila, heart of the Apennines. Pello Bilbao and his partner Zeits, Rojas, Pedrero, Gallopin, Formolo, De Gendt, Cattaneo, Hamilton and Henao mounted another wagon loaded with quality. The Bahrain moved away. Yel UAE burst on the first ramp of the port of Svolte di Popoli. The pink jersey of Conti frayed. Rojas, fourth overall, began to dream about her. Their hope dissipated when they accelerated the Trek, the Jumbo and the Mitchelton. They saved the leadership of the orphan Conti. Rojas was going to settle for being second. And the escape was only going to discuss the stage. Of gold, yes.

Pello's patience

They say that the earthquake moved L'Aquila 15 centimeters on the maps. After a day in stampede, the key was to hit the moment of attack. Not an inch before. On the run, he had only five numbers left. Hamilton, so young, was the most impatient, the one who moved the most on the steep slopes. Formolo, the most prestigious, took command. He wanted to prevail and win by demolition. He left portodos, even for Rojas, who came back. But Formolo did not have as much energy as he thought.

L'Aquila is a good example of fragility. A tremor at dawn and goodbye. The five looked at each other between gasps. Pello Bilbao had been silent until the entrance to the old city. He saved everything he could. He had more patience than Formolo. He let him do, wear himself out. And, noticing a break, he chose the best moment. Dry. The ground shook. Earthquake. Neither Formolo nor Cattaneo, who tried it, closed the gap. The Giro wanted to reward the growth and patience of Pello Bilbao. «Today is a very important day for me. It took me a long time to achieve my first stage victory in a great lap, "he said at the finish line. He already has it. And there are still steps and auctions to give.
