MALAGA, Spain—Former Manchester United and Real Madrid striker Ruud Van
Nistelrooy retired from football on Monday. Chris Gocong Jersey . The 35-year-old
Dutchman, who played this season for Malaga in the Spanish league, said that
“yesterday I played my last game as a professional.” He scored four goals in
limited action for Malaga this season. On Sunday, the Costa del Sol side beat
Sporting Gijon 1-0 to finish in fourth place and earn its first Champions League
spot. “My big dream was to play in the Champions League with Malaga, but the
moment to say goodbye has come,” he said. “Playing at the maximum level forces
me to recognize that I have reached my physical limits.” Van Nistelrooy scored a
league-best 25 goals to lead Manchester United to the Premier League title in
2003. After transferring to Spain, he scored a league-high 25 goals for Real
Madrid in 2006-07. He won two Spanish league titles with Madrid and two Dutch
league titles with PSV. He also played for Hamburg in Germany and Den Bosch and
Heerenveen in the Netherlands. Trent Richardson Womens Jersey . The latest

Winnipeg Goldeyes how Saturday nights 4-0 loss to the Gary SouthShore RailCats
went. KIAWAH ISLAND, S.C. —In the 55 years since the PGA Championship switched
over to stroke play, there has never been a tougher round than Friday at Kiawah
Island. One score in the 60s, two in the 90s. Of the 41 players who failed to
break 80, nine of them could be found among the top 50 in the world ranking.
Through 11 hours of relentless wind, with gusts up to 30 mph that turned the
Atlantic Ocean choppy with white caps, about the one thing that looked vaguely
familiar was Tiger Woods making one putt after another. He had a 1-under 71, one
of only four rounds under par on the Ocean Course, to share the lead with
Vijay Singh and Carl Pettersson going into the weekend. Just like that, the
major known as “Glorys Last Shot” turned into one last chance for Woods to
finally win another major. “I thought going out today, anything even par or
better was going to be a good score,” Woods said. “So I went out today and I
accomplished that. It was a tough, tough day. It was blowing all day. I dont
think anyone had an advantage.” Singh turned a remarkable round, the only player
to break 70 with five birdies in his round of 69 that gave the 49-year-old
Fijian hope that four years without winning could be about to end—at a major
championship, no less. Pettersson also made big putts, most of them for par and
even one for bogey, until the mistakes caught up with him. He had a 74. They
were at 4-under 140, and while Woods and Singh are familiar faces, Woods wasnt
just trying to quell the anticipation by saying this major was a long way from
being over. Remember, he had a share of the lead at the U.S. Open this summer
until rounds of 75-73 plunged him into a tie for 21st. Twenty players were
within five shots of the lead, starting with Ian Poulter one shot back, and
including the likes of Rory McIlroy, Adam Scott, Phil Mickelson, Graeme McDowell
and even John Daly. Mickelson and Poulter also had 71. The four rounds under par
were the fewest for the opening rounds of the PGA Championship since there were
only three sub-par rounds in the second round at Oak Hill in 1980. There would
have been five rounds except for a gutsy display of honesty by Michael Hoey of
Northern Ireland. Some six hours after his round, he reported a violation on
himself. Hoey had an embedded lie in a sandy area on the ninth hole, brushed
sand away to identify his ball, and then forgot to re-create the original lie by
replacing the sand. He notified PGA rules official of his oversight. Because it
carries a two-shot penalty, Hoey was disqualified for signing an incorrect
scorecard. For Woods, the PGA Championship is yet another chance to end four
years without a major, and perhaps resume his pursuit of Jack Nicklaus record 18
professional majors. Woods won his 14th major in 2008 at the U.S. Open. “Ive
been in this position many times over my career,” he said. “Again, were just at
the halfway point. We have a long way to go.” Six players were atop the
leaderboard on this day of survival. Singh was the first to post at 4-under 140,
and it didnt look as though anyone would be able to even match that as the wind
never let up on The Ocean Course. Pettersson stayed in the lead as long as he
could until a few errant tee shots cost him at the end of his round and he had
to settle for a 74. Woods, playing on the opposite side of the course, showed
early on that he figured out something with his putter. Along with birdie putts
of 15 feet and 40 feet on the opening four holes, there was a collection of big
par saves—from 20 feet on the third hole, a pair of 8-foot par putts a few
holes later. There were even two short par putts that swirled 360 degrees around
the cup and dropped. The only disappointment was the way it ended. After hooking
a tee shot that rattled around the corporate tents and allowed him a shot into
the 18th, he ran his birdie putt about 6 feet by the hole and three-putted for
bogey. It cost him his first outright lead in a major in three years, but this
was not a day to complain. “It was fun, but it also was tough,” Woods said. “You
were getting blown all over the place. It was just a very difficult day.”
Poulter was tied for the lead until a bogey on his last hole, though he showed
again that he can thrive in windy, demanding conditions. The last time he was in
serious contention at wind-swept Royal Birkdale in 2008, when he was runner-up
to Padraig Harrington. “The golf shots this golf course asks you to hhit time
and time and time and time again . Sheldon Brown Jersey. . you really have to
hit phenomenal golf shots,” Poulter said. “The room for error is so tiny, and
when you get it wrong, you can be 15 feet below the level of the green in a bad
lie with not much of a shot.” The course played so difficult that the afternoon
groups were delayed 20 minutes, and one player failed to finish—Joost Luiten
of the Netherlands, who was 1 over for the tournament and will return Saturday
morning to complete his round. The scoring average was 78.11. The previous
record for the PGA Championship was 76.8 in the opening round at Llanerch
Country Club in 1958. Singh stood tall in the wind, however, even as he kept his
head down. “After a while, you dont really think about your score,” said Singh,
whose last major victory was at the 2004 PGA on the first visit to Whistling
Straits. “You just think about each hole, each shot and just try not to mess up.
It was one of my better rounds. I didnt strike the ball as good, but I scored
really, really well. And I think that was the key.” There were 44 players under
par after the opening day. Going into the weekend, there were only 10. McIlroy
didnt make a birdie until his 14th hole—a tough par 3 that he has birdied
both rounds—and had a 75. He was at 2-under 142, along with Jamie Donaldson
of Wales, who had a 73 and was thrilled after his morning round. “Thats the best
I can do,” he said. Scott also had a 75 to join the group at 143 that included
Aaron Baddeley (75), Blake Adams (72) and former Masters champion
Trevor Immelman (72). “I thought 2 over today was like shooting 2 under
yesterday,” Pettersson said. “I hit some squirrely shots, which is typical when
its blowing 30 mph. But I hit some really good ones, too.” Mickelson, who is No.
8 in the Ryder Cup standings going into the final week of qualifying, came out
firing into the wind with a 4-iron to about 2 feet and then a driver off the
fairway to give himself a decent chance at birdie on the 11th. He didnt advance
any further up the leaderboard. He also didnt fall too far back, and that was
just as important. He was in the group at even-par 144, not knowing what the
weekend will hold. McDowell had a 76 and was tied with Mickelson, still only
four shots behind. “I was very happy to get off that golf course, I have to
say,” McDowell said. “Im trying to think of the last time I remember a golf
course playing this difficult, because its a links wind, blowing across a golf
course which is super soft, with some of the most difficult pins on the course
out there. Its brutal.” Daly, who opened with a 68, bogeyed his first three
holes and shot 77. Even so, he was only five shots behind. Woods was not immune
to the windy conditions. With a sand wedge in his hand on the third, he knocked
it over the green and appeared headed for bogey until his 20-foot par putt was
true all the way. He looked solid on par putts at No. 5 and No. 7, and his chip
from below the ridge on the ninth stopped a turn from falling. He never looked
as if he would miss, even rolling in a 12-foot par putt on the 17th. The only
big blip came at the 18th, his second bogey of the round. Already this week, the
PGA statisticians have Woods for 23 one-putt greens. Asked if there was a
putting performance that stood out among his 14 majors, he cited the 1997
Masters and 2000 U.S. Open at Pebble Beach. He won those two by a combined 27
shots. Then again, he had put some distance between him and the field. This PGA
Championship remains wide open, and so much depends on whether the wind
continues to blow, and the scores continue to soar. Doug Wade, a club pro from
Dayton, Ohio, had a 93. That was one shot away from the PGA Championship record
for the worst score. Michael Frye, a club pro from Sedona, Ariz., finished
par-birdie-par on three of the tougher holes for a 90. They werent alone, of
course. Hunter Mahan and Rickie Fowler had 80, Matt Kuchar an 82, and
Nick Watney an 81. It was a long list of suffering, so difficult that no one
would embarrassed or angry. Most were just happy to be off the golf course. “If
you had a golf course like this and you asked me to go and play golf in windy
conditions, Id say, No, Im not going to play. I guess nobody is going to go out
and play in conditions like this,” Singh said. “But its a major, and we have to
go out there and just struggle and manage yourself the best you can.” ’ ’ ’
