Champions League: Messi scores hat trick as Barcelona blanks PSV Eindhoven

If the World Cup had given the impression that Lionel Messi was slipping down soccer’s pecking order, the Argentine star made it clear he remains at the top of his game. Messi scored a record eighth Champions League hat trick on Tuesday in Barcelona’s 4-0 win over PSV Eindhoven as Europe’s top club competition got underway. Meanwhile, Kylian Mbappe, the teenage star widely viewed as the man capable of dethroning Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo in a near future as the best player in the world, endured a frustrating night in a 3-2 loss with Paris Saint-Germain at Liverpool. The World

Tango in Paris

From my parents’ old house, high above the White Cliffs of Dover, you could look out across the English Channel on sunny days and see the outline of the French coast. I used to imagine that somewhere beyond the horizon there was a French version of me, a bon viveur enjoying better weather, better clothes, better friends: chic, debonair, nonchalant, hanging out in cafés and brasseries, quaffing aperitifs, maybe Champagne, living with elan and panache; living une vie en rose. This alternate life could be glimpsed on family motoring holidays in the Loire Valley or the Dordogne, or cycling through

Alouettes QB Johnny Manziel to replace struggling starter Pipkin

The quarterback carousel in Montreal has spun again, and Johnny Manziel is once again the next man up. The former Cleveland Brown took the majority of Montreal’s first-team snaps at practice on Monday and will take over from quarterback Antonio Pipkin when the Alouettes (3-9-0) visit the Winnipeg Blue Bombers on Friday. Pipkin, 23, started the last four games for Montreal but threw four interceptions in a 32-14 loss to the visiting B.C. Lions last Friday. “I think Johnny deserves the opportunity to play this week based on last week,” Alouettes head coach Mike Sherman said after practice. Sherman also

POV podcast: Stephanie Labbe plays the long game

Stephanie Labbe approaches soccer like Bobby Fischer approached  chess. She’s thinking many, many moves ahead. So — when the  goal is unprecedented, like getting Canada atop the World Cup podium, Labbe takes an unprecedented approach. She joined a men’s team in the Premiere Development league so she could face an exceptional proving ground between the pipes. No one questioned her skill: she stoned the best they could throw at her. But the league played the gender card: men only. Labbe was ready for that. Plan B? Learn. Adjust. Move on. In the latest podcast, Steph and her old bud Anastasia Bucsis talk about Labbe’s next step,

Rory McIlroy angry for THIS reason despite first round 62 at BMW Championship

For Woods, it is a first time he’s shared the lead at the end of any round since leading for all four days in capturing the 2013 WGC Cadillac Championship.

McIlroy had been a shot clear of Woods at nine-under par through 15 holes when Woods headed to the clubhouse with his lowest round all season, and also a lowest score in five years.

The World No8 ranked McIlroy had raced to three-under par with a trio of opening birdies and ignited hopes of a first European-born 59 on the PGA Tour with a sizzling run of six birdies in succession from his ninth to 14th holes on the Aronimink course.

But the brakes were on when McIlroy three-putted his 16th for bogey and then did the same at the next while there was hardly any joy in two-putting his last for a 10th birdie of his day.

“What was worst was probably just not giving myself a better chance to shoot the 59,” McIlroy said.

“I can accept bogies. Definitely I can accept a bogey on a hole like on the 8th (17th) hole and the bogey on seven (16th) wasn’t good but you don’t get many opportunities to break 60 and today was one of them and I didn’t capitalize.

“Look, geez, if someone had given me a 62 on the first tee this morning I would have taken it. So, it’s a great way to start the golf tournament. My game feels obviously in really good shape. There’s a lot of good signs out there. My approach play, my wedge play has been much better. I putted well.

“Basically did everything well and looking forward to getting back out there early in the morning and trying to get it going

again.”

McIlroy and Woods had played a nine-hole practice round together on Tuesday and while Woods skipped Wednesday’s Pro-Am, McIlroy gave an indication of what lay ahead in birding eight of the opening nine holes.

McIlroy’s effort is still his lowest round all season since a pair of 64s earlier in the year, and one of those a last round 64 to capture the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

McIlroy’s lowest PGA Tour round was his third round 61 in 2015 to ride off with a second Wells Fargo Championship winning strong box.

“I was then 9-under through 14 holes today and I’ve played like a 17-hole stretch in these two days in 27-under par and that is pretty good,” McIlroy added.

“I was thinking of possibly breaking 60 after the sixth birdie in a row on 14 to get to nine-under I needed to birdie two of the last four holes, and with a par-5 being one of them.

“But the bogey on my 16th was not good while the bogey on the next I just didn’t hit a good tee shot and a bogey there was not the end of the world.

“Though I wish I had capitalised on 16 and 17 but then it’s still a great round of golf.”

Woods had ignited thoughts of a career-first 59 in producing an eagle and four birdies, and in the process recording just 13 putts, in a six-under par 29.

McIlroy bettered Woods start in birding three holes in succession from the 11th hole or the second of his round.

He then holed a seven-footer for birdie at 11, a 21-foot gem at 12 and then a similar length birdie after playing a 75-yard wedge shot from the right rough.

McIlroy then again lit-up the course with an explosive run of six birdies in succession from his ninth hole and with the longest putt of the six being an 8’ 7” putt on his ninth or the 18th hole and with the shortest a 3’ 4” at the par-4 fourth hole or the 13th of his round.

Woods credited his lowest round all season with a decision to return to the putter he won 13 of his 14 Majors and this after taking two putters into his only practice round on Tuesday in the company of McIlroy, and with one of those being the winning ‘Scotty Cameron’ he used today.

“I’ve been monkeying around with the Scotty Cameron back home and in the backyard, so it felt good,” he said.

“I’ve hit hundreds of millions of putts. I’ve had it since ’99. I’ve hit putts with it so my body just remembers it.

“I made a few putts today and also from right of the gate with birdies at 10 and 12 and 13 so that was a nice way to get things rolling.

“Then to shoot 29 on the front nine helps. It helps a lot.”
