BELEK, Turkey—Tiger Woods hopes to captain the U. Anquan Boldin Pink Jersey .S. Ryder Cup team
someday. He still plans to play in a few more before that happens. The 14-time
major winner is coming off a disappointing performance at Medinah. He secured
only half a point in his seventh Ryder Cup appearance as Europe retained the
title Sept. 30. “One day that would be fantastic and a huge honour to be a
captain of a Ryder Cup team, but hopefully it doesnt happen in the near future,”
Woods said. “I still want to be playing on a lot more teams but certainly one
day, when my golfing life is slowing down and when its over, that would be a
huge honour to be a part of a Ryder Cup from a captaincy side.” Woods arrived
Monday for the $5.3 million Turkish Airways World Golf Finals, an eight-player
event being promoted simply as “Tiger v Rory.” Woods tied Raymond Floyd for the
U.S. record for most losses in foursomes (8) after pairing with Steve Stricker
on Friday. He also went down in the fourballs Friday and Saturday afternoon with
Stricker. After playing only once on the winning team, in 1999, Woods is
stinging at the latest loss. “It didnt set in for me for a few days as to what
happened in Medinah. I had two sick kids I had to care for and they also had to
go to school. They had fevers and I was focused on them for a couple of days,”
he said. “I then started to talk to my friends and teammates, and once it all
started to sink in—and the position we had been in and what transpired—
yes, it was tough for a couple of days. “I texted Freddie (Couples) and Steve
(Stricker) quite a bit, and like anything it is a tournament lost and you have
to move on and focus on the next event. We lose far more than we win in this
sport and you learn to move on. The next event is this week here in Turkey, and
Ive got a good matchup with Charl (Schwartzel).” Unlike Woods, Rory McIlroy has
been to Turkey before, supporting tennis star girlfriend Caroline Wozniacki for
a season-ending event. Wozniacki is here to support McIlroy this time, and the
top-ranked golfer is looking forward to getting back into the swing after the
euphoria of the Ryder Cup. “Its going to be a very exciting week with eight of
the best players in the world, and the people of Turkey are going to see an
event theyve never seen before,” McIlroy said. “I am still trying to come down
from the high of the Ryder Cup, but its just nice to be here. “I havent touched
a club since the Ryder Cup as Ive just been chilling out with Caroline, so I
will get to the golf course early tomorrow morning and see if its still there.”
Dennis Pitta White Jersey . It was the first
time the slugger really didnt know what to do. Already with two homers in the
first game back since a four-homer performance on the road earlier this week,
Hamilton no longer could suppress a smile. Ray Lewis White Jersey . “Everything came
up,” he told TSN 1050 of those indescribable feelings following a 6-1
series-clinching victory on Monday night. “Its hard to put it into words. http://www.theravenssportsshop.com/ray-lewis-jersey/
. Tampa Bay Lightning forward Teddy Purcell accepted an invitation to the
tournament on Wednesday, bringing the total number of committed players to 17.
Corey Graham Jersey . The Uruguay
international was widely criticized for failing to shake Evras hand before
Saturdays Premier League game at Old Trafford in the players first meeting since
Suarez was banned for eight matches for racially abusing the United defender in
October. Joe Flacco Black Jersey . After nearly
getting ejected in the third inning, Verlander kept his composure to pick up his
12th straight decision on the road, Prince Fielder homered and the Tigers built
an early lead before holding on for a 6-4 win over the Seattle Mariners on
Tuesday night.OTTAWA—Victor Montagliani vows to make the Canadian Soccer
Association a world-class organization with players as its cornerstone. The
Burnaby, B.C., native was elected the new president of the CSA on Saturday at
its annual general meeting and said his vision is for a new culture within the
sports national governing body. “The priority always has to be the player,”
Montagliani said in a phone interview. “Without the player, everything else
wouldnt exist.” Montagliani beat out incumbent Dominic Maestracci, who withdrew
his candidacy for re-election earlier in the day, and CSA vice-president Rob
Newman. Montagliani was a CSA vice-president for three terms, and has been a
member of its executive committee since 2005. Hes also been chair of the
national teams committee. Montagliani stressed the importance of player
development, and referred to the CSAs document Long-term Player Development,
originally written based on research conducted in 2005. “We have a cornerstone
document … that not only deals with tthe grassroots but also all the way up to
high performance,” he said. Ray Rice Purple Jersey. “I think its time
that we focus on that resource, and make sure its activated in our membership so
that we can set some milestones with respect to where we are with player
development.” Montagliani said while theres some work to do within the CSA, hes
optimistic that Canadian soccer can see better results soon. “I think where you
have some focus and you have a plan, results come a lot sooner than you actually
predict,” he said. “Its happened with other countries … the Japan womens
program, they were planning to do well in 2014. Well, low and behold with some
focus and resourcing, they won the womens World Cup last year.” Canadas three
MLS teams and FC Edmonton supported Newmans campaign, issuing a joint statement
saying Newman was committed to reforming how the sports governing body in Canada
is structured. The pro teams each had a vote in Saturdays election. Montagliani
is the CSAs 33rd president. ’ ’ ’
