Wilson’s late heroics lift Seahawks over Packers

After a shaky beginning, Russell Wilson got hot in the fourth quarter, Bobby Wagner and Seattle’s defense stymied Aaron Rodgers and the Seahawks stayed in the middle of the NFC playoff race. “We’ve been through so much throughout this season it was time to get over the hump,” Wagner said. “We’ve been down, we’ve been up, we’ve lost close games, we’ve won close games. It was time.” Wilson threw for 225 yards and his 15-yard touchdown pass to Ed Dickson with 5:08 left was the difference in the Seahawks’ 27-24 victory over the Green Bay Packers on Thursday night. In

Red Sox’s Mookie Betts caps off winning year with MVP award

Mookie Betts is ready to become an ambassador for baseball, now that he’s won a batting title, World Series and Most Valuable Player award with Boston. “I enjoy being kind of a face around the game. I’ve kind of used this pedestal or whatever you want to say to spread knowledge that the game is fun,” he said Thursday after his runaway victory for the AL MVP award. Milwaukee’s Christian Yelich was close to a unanimous pick for the NL honour. A 26-year-old outfielder just like Betts, Yelich also won a batting championship and led his team to a division

Matt Wallace FINED £3,000 for slow play despite back-to-back Dubai birdies

This season’s triple Tour winning Wallace was adjudged to have taken too long to putt out for par on the ninth hole and this after bizarrely being timed in birdying both the seventh and eighth holes on the Earth Course. The Tour’s Chief Referee, Andy McFee, was waiting for Wallace as he headed to the scorer’s hut having ended his round by also birding four of his closing five holes. His round of 68 saw him share fifth place in the closing Rolex Series event. Wallace had been advised by McFee he was ‘on the clock’ during the time he

Ian Poulter looking to secure Ryder Cup spot early at US PGA Championships this week

The world No.31 only pitched up in St Louis on Wednesday after spending the start of the week at his Florida home.

But after playing only nine practice holes, Poulter shot a 67 to trail his playing partner and clubhouse leader Rickie Fowler by only two shots.

The hero of Medinah is currently 10th in the Ryder Cup rankings and his form this season has a strong case to get a wildcard from captain Thomas Bjorn.

Poulter has one more event after the US PGA to force his way into the top eight but wants to get the job done here.

“I’m close, but I need a push,” he said. “I could have got it done last weekend at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational. That’s why I’m a little frustrated that I didn’t get it done, but I think I can squeeze in if I play well here. If I can have a strong week in New Jersey as well and edge in, it would be fantastic.”

After his final round 74 in Akron at the end of five consecutive tournaments, Poulter headed back to his Florida base for the first time since May 20 – and stayed till Wednesday morning.

“I have never arrived the day before a Major before,” he said.

“But I saw the weather forecast and saw the storm possibilities on Tuesday, and Katie and the kids were arriving home 5:00 on Tuesday afternoon from England. So for me it made sense to go home.”

It was good to get back, have a rest, unpack, fill the fridge full of food, and a couple of nights sleep in my own bed and come up early Wednesday morning. It has worked so far.”

“I played the back nine and then I walked around the front nine and hit some chips and putts. You can see everything. You can see the bunkers, landing areas. And especially when it’s as soft as this it’s not like you need to know too much about how the ball is going to land into the greens.”

Masters runner-up Fowler took inspiration from the late Jarrod Lyle as he switched his shirt to yellow to remember the Australian – and shot a superb 65 in the sweltering heat.

Lyle passed away this week after a long battle with leukemia with many players wearing yellow cancer ribbons. The American, who is seeking an elusive first Major title, said: “I was scripted to wear some sort of dark blue shirt, so luckily I had a version of yellowish. I was lucky enough to be able to talk to him last Friday, so one thing that did help is hearing kind of from him how he felt.

“It was tough news so definitely happy that we could be here and supporting Jarrod. It’s been fun to be thinking about him while we’re out there playing and we’ll continue to do that.”

South African Louis Oosthuizen withdrew from the Championship with an undisclosed injury yesterday, announcing his decision just prior to his opening round tee time.

Oosthuizen’s place in the field was taken by American Kelly Kraft.

The PGA of America refused to comment last night on reports that hackers had targetted their computer servers earlier this week and demanded a ransom.
