RIO DE JANEIRO -- Justin Rose delivered a gold-medal performance in golf that was worth a 112-year wait.In a final round that was tense from the opening hole, Rose hit a pitch to 3 feet for birdie on the par-5 18th hole at Olympic Golf Course for a 4-under 67 and a 2-shot victory over Henrik Stenson to win the first gold medal in golf since 1904 in St. Louis.And the 36-year-old from Great Britain showed how much it mattered.As the final putt fell into the cup, Rose thrust his fist into the air and popped the British crest on his shirt before turning to embrace Stenson.Stenson already made it through one big duel this summer at Royal Troon to win the British Open. Along the back nine, the 40-year-old Swedes back began to act up, and Stenson had a physiotherapist work on it on the 14th hole. He kept firing away, however, hitting a tough pitch to 4 feet for birdie on the 16th to tie for the lead.They remained tied playing the 18th, with fans lining both sides of the fairway and crammed into the grandstands. Stensons pitch from 50 yards came up short, just over 20 feet away. Knowing that Rose was tight for birdie, Stenson rammed his birdie putt some 7 feet by the cup and missed the par putt, giving him a 3-under 68.The bogey wasnt enough to take the silver away from Stenson.Matt Kuchar of the United States, starting the final round seven shots out of the lead, provided his own thrills. Kuchar went 6 under during a six-hole stretch that he capped off with a 15-foot eagle on the 10th hole to get him in the mix, and his wedge to 2 feet for birdie on the 17th put him one shot behind.He failed to birdie the 18th, however, and his 63 was good enough for the bronze.I cant explain the pride to you thats just busting out of my chest, Kuchar said.Australias Marcus Fraser, playing with Rose and Stenson on the final day, failed to go with the two major winners and dropped out of contention with four bogeys on the front nine.He steadied late and birdied the last hole for a one-over 73 to tie for fifth on eight-under, a shot behind Belgian Thomas Pieters.The clubhouse leader after two rounds, Fraser started Sunday three behind Rose at -9 but never challenged.Not in my wildest dreams did I think I had the chance to be here, let alone mixing it with those guys over four rounds at such a big event, he said.It was very pleasing, I just didnt have much in me on the weekend. My game was pretty scrappy and I didnt deserve to have a medal but I felt I fought as hard as I could.Rose is the first gold medalist in golf since George Lyon of Canada won against a field of mostly Americans. Golf organizations lobbied hard to get the sport back into the Olympics, only for some of the biggest stars -- including the top four in the world -- to withdraw in the month leading up to the Rio Games for reasons that ranged from fears over the Zika virus to security.The lasting memory of its debut was Rose and Stenson going at it for more than five hours, neither with more than a 1-stroke advantage the entire round. And there was Rose at the end, pumping his fists as the fans waved the Union Jack around the 18th green. John Carlson Jersey .25 million option on reliever Jose Veras.

INDIANAPOLIS -- Caleb Swanigan wanted to change Purdues image. So after losing their first two games against ranked opponents this season, the sophomore forward took matters into his own hands.Swanigan scored half of his 26 points in the second half to lead No. 15 Purdue past No. 21 Notre Dame 86-81 on Saturday.We were tired of losing to good opponents, Swanigan said. The second half, I knew it was time to win.Swanigan, who finished with 10 rebounds, had all four of his blocks in the second half. Vincent Edwards finished with 20 points and 10 rebounds, and the Boilermakers won for the first time in the Crossroads Classic since it began six years ago.Id say it speaks for itself, Edwards said. We really dont have to say much. We always know were a capable team, and the coaches call what they see, so I feel like our performance today just showed that and I feel like it speaks for itself.Swanigans three-point play at the end of a 13-2 run gave the Boilermakers a 70-67 lead with 9:41 to play.The Boilermakers (9-2) opened the second half with a 12-2 run to cut the deficit to four and then went on a 10-0 run midway through the half to take a lead.Swanigan caused matchup problems for the Fighting Irish (9-2) and the Boilermakers went with the 6-foot-9 big man over 7-2 Isaac Haas, who played just 2 minutes in the second half.Notre Dame didnt have any answers.If youre going to help on Swanigan, youre going to give up a 3, Notre Dame coach Mike Brey said. And we finally decided to help because he was crushing us in there.Bonzie Colson had 23 points and 10 rebounds and Matt Farrell finished with 22 points, 10 assists and five rebounds for Notre Dame, which has lost two straight.We didnt do enough in the paint, so tough one to swallow for us, Brey said. For us to beat really good teamss like weve had the last two Saturdays, we need our big four to play really well.dddddddddddd.Purdue struggled to make baskets in the first half while Notre Dame jumped ahead and led by as many as 17 points when Martinas Geben made two free throws to put the Fighting Irish ahead 48-31 with 1:45 remaining in the first half.Notre Dame led 52-38 at halftime.BIG PICTURENotre Dame: After slipping into the AP Top 25 two weeks ago, the Fighting Irish have lost two straight. Notre Dame lost to top-ranked Villanova a week ago.Purdue: The Boilermakers needed this win after their only two losses this season came against ranked opponents -- No. 11 Louisville on Nov. 30 and No. 1 Villanova in the second game of the season. The victory over Notre Dame was the first against a ranked team.BOILERS FROM LONGPurdue entered the game shooting the ball well from 3-point range, especially on the road making 55.2 percent. The Boilermakers came in No. 4 in the nation shooting 44.1 percent overall on 3-point field goals, but struggled against Notre Dame, especially in the first half. Purdue finished 7 of 18 from 3, but shot just 28.6 percent (2 of 7) in the first half.A RERUNWhen Purdue started to chip away at the 14-point deficit to start the second half, it seemed eerily familiar. Notre Dame blew a 16-point lead against Indiana in the Crossroads Classic a year ago and lost that game 80-73. This time the Fighting Irish gave up a lead of 17 points.UP NEXTNotre Dame will look to get back on track at home against Colgate on Monday.Purdue will take the momentum into a home game against Western Illinois on Monday.---More AP college basketball: Jerseys NFL Cheap Cheap Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys NFL Cheap Cheap Jerseys Jerseys Wholesale Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale ' ' '
