eyes starter Justin Garcia (5-1, 3.86 ERA) gave up six runs on nine hits Antworten

NASSAU, Bahamas -- If there was any trepidation about hitting full, powerful shots or spending too much time doing so, Tiger Woods wasnt letting on Sunday afternoon as the wind whipped across the driving range at Albany Golf Club -- where he was the only player practicing.With his return to competitive golf after a 15-month absence looming this week at the Hero World Challenge, Woods was busy testing equipment -- and looking pretty good doing so.Im not dead, he quipped. Woods, 40, arrived in the Bahamas on Saturday and played nine holes, then spent some two-and-half hours Sunday on the driving range and in a testing center using a device called TrackMan to gauge various distances and launch angles -- a process he said is more daunting now that his longtime sponsor, Nike, is no longer making golf clubs, and Woods has an array of choices.So many manufacturers sent Woods clubs to try that my head was spinning. For now, he is sticking with his Nike irons and experimenting with various woods -- it was a TaylorMade driver, 3-wood and 5-wood and Sunday -- and he dropped a bit of news when he said hes using a Bridgestone golf ball this week.?The most important thing is the ball, he said. Once you find a ball, then you can work around everything else. The ball is No. 1. The most important club in the bag is the ball.Woods had no trouble carrying drives over 300 yards, shaping shots in both directions with his various clubs while showing no pangs of discomfort. Of course, its Sunday, not the opening round on Thursday of an otherwise low-key, 18-player tournament that benefits the Tiger Woods Foundation. Its a year-ending cash grab for many stars of the game, and how they fare here is of little consequence. There are world ranking points at stake, and a $3.5 million purse with $1 million going to the winner.But for Woods -- who in his absence has slipped to 879th in the world -- this is a big deal. The 14-time major champion has not competed since August 2015 at the Wyndham Championship, where he tied for 10th. Earlier he had missed cuts in three consecutive major championships. And he would later undergo two back procedures that forced him to the sideline, causing all kind of speculation about his future in the game.According to the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook, Woods has the worst odds to win the tournament, at 40-1, of anyone in the 18-person field.Woods admitted he will be nervous.But Im nervous for every tournament I play in, whether its after a layoff, or six in a row, or a major, he said. I care. If I care, Im nervous. And its good to be that way. To have that nervous energy and channel it into aggression, into focus, concentration, thats good stuff. If I wasnt nervous, that would mean I didnt care. I dont want to be out there flat.Woods said he understands the thinking that he shouldnt care, that just being back after an extended absence is enough.I get that, and that part is great too, he said. Im out here playing and competing. That part is really neat. Then there is that part of me that is the competitor who wants to beat these guys. I want to compete.Some seven weeks ago, Woods announced he was not ready to do that. He at first committed to the Safeway Open in California, then three days before the tournament decided to pull out because he described his game as vulnerable and not ready to compete against the best in the world. That set off a new wave of doubts about his game and his future, and while Woods said he badly wanted to play that week, it was a good decision in the end. The competitor inside me wanted to go so badly and was itching to go. I had been playing at home. I thought only if I have a few shots, its good enough to get it around. I had played feeling worse. But whats the point in rushing back when Ive waited over a year to begin with?Ive waited this long, its not going to hurt to wait just this much longer.Woods caddie, Joe LaCava, who was walking the Albany course on Sunday, twice went to Florida to work with Woods since the Safeway withdrawal, mostly to get Woods in tournament mode and off a golf cart. His instructor, Chris Como, has also been there. Two weeks ago, Woods and LaCava played rounds on four consecutive days, walking -- which seems simple enough until Woods explains he had not been doing that enough.Its weird to say, but I have to get my walking legs, he said. Its a 5-mile walk. You forget what it feels like to be in golf shoes versus tennis shoes. To be on an uneven lie versus a flat lie. I can walk for two or three hours on a treadmill and its not the same as walking on a golf course. Its so different, the standing around (between shots).The rhythm of playing in a golf cart versus walking and playing. I had forgotten that because I had been away for over a year. Joey really helped me ... normal tournament talk, I had to get used to that again.This is a big week for Woods every year. The event began in 1999 at the urging of his late father, Earl, and is a big fundraiser for his foundation. There are numerous sponsor obligations -- Hero has one more year on its deal after the 2016 event -- as well as all the attention his game is going to receive.Im ready to go, he said.

Zach Sieler Super Bowl Jersey . With his new coach and six-time Grand Slam singles champion Boris Becker watching him during an official match for the first time, Djokovic appeared tentative early against the Slovakian player, who often appeared content to keep the ball in play.The Winnipeg Goldeyes pounded out 18 hits in a 14-7 drubbing of the St. Paul Saints on Friday night at Shaw Park. For manager Rick Forney, the bats could not have boomed at a better time. Once again, the Goldeyes fell behind early, as the Saints scored four runs in the top of the first. But, Winnipegs bats just boomed, as the Fish put up at least a run in the first seven innings, including six runs in the seventh. Amos Ramon finished with four hits in six at-bats, with two runs batted in and two runs scored; Ryan Scoma had three hits a walk, two runs scored and an RBI; Josh Mazzola went two-for-three with a homer, two walks, two runs scored and an RBI; Mike Coles had two hits, a walk, three runs scored and an RBI; Fehlandt Lentini had two hits, a runs scored and an RBI; and Luis Alen had a single and a double, a walk, a run scored and three RBI. “Weve been longing for that,” Forney said with a smile. “That was a good night of offense for the club. “We gave up four in the first and if you have to give up four runs in an inning, its a good thing you do it in the first.” With the victory, the Goldeyes won their third straight game, took the series from St. Paul, improved to 24-21 and moved to within three games of first-place Fargo in the American Associations North Division. “Were beginning to get some big hits and produce some RBIs,” Forney said. “Amos (Ramon) had four hits, Mike (Coles) had a big night, (Ryan) Scomas hitting the ball well, (Fehlandt) Lentini had a couple of hits, Luis (Alen) knocked in three more runs. It was a good night for the guys. Im proud of the guys. Theyre working hard and staying positive.” After St. Paul took a 4-0 lead after the first half inning – Ole Sheldon hit a three-run homer for the Saints off starter Justin Garcia – the Fish started to chip away.dddddddddddd Winnipeg put up a run in the bottom of the first, as Ramon drive home Coles with a single. Winnipeg added three runs on five hits in the second; got a solo homer from Mazzola in the third; picked up another run in the fourth; another in the fifth; one more in the sixth and then blew it open in the seventh. Leading 8-6, heading into the bottom half of seven, Nick Liles grounded out to lead it off, Coles walked, Ramon singled and then Ray Sadler lined out for the second out of the inning. But Haerther doubled in both Coles and Ramon, Mazzola walked, Lentini singled home Haerther, Scoma walked and then Luis Alen cleared the bases with a double. “The guys are having good at bats and good at bats are contagious,” Forney said. “The guys are playing with a lot of confidence. Theyve got some fight in ‘em right now.” Goldeyes starter Justin Garcia (5-1, 3.86 ERA) gave up six runs on nine hits over six complete innings, but he still got the win. Former Goldeyes lefty Aaron Correa (0-1, 19.29 ERA) started for St. Paul and took the loss. The Goldeyes will open a four-game series on Saturday night at 6:05 p.m. against the Gary SouthShore RailCats. Ryan Sasaki (2-3, 5.16 ERA) will start for Winnipeg, while another former Goldeye, Billy Spottiswood (4-3, 4.52) will take the mound for Gary.
