Manchester City are desperately short of numbers in the full back department, with Pablo Zabaleta, Bacary Sagna and Gael Clichy all departing the club so far, and Aleksandar Kolarov asking to leave the club.

The 39-year-old Kuchar is still seeking his first major title and managed to grind out a 1-over 71 to sit two shots behind Spieth. Had Kuchar stayed out of trouble, he could be even with Spieth.

perth_map

A vivid description came from Matt Kuchar , the American veteran of 46 previous majors and 2012 Players Championship victor who shared the lead at 5 under with Brooks Koepka and Jordan Spieth after Thursday. And sometimes I get down on myself. "I was four over after three holes in Boston past year and won, so I have done it before". Mentally, I wasn't engaged and I was caught between playing the golf shot I needed to and (thinking about) my swing. Read More »

Spieth three clear at Birkdale

I wrote about how Kuchar and Spieth are basically running that Henrik Stenson-Phil Mickelson duel back from a year ago, but here are nine other thoughts on Round 3 from Birkdale. Connelly shot a 66, more than offsetting two bogeys with four birdies and an eagle. Just like that, he was three shots behind.

Kyrie Irving asks Cavaliers to trade him

perth_map

Kyrie Irving is still very young, at 25 years old. Offensively, he's a better shooter and shot creator than Bledsoe. Especially with the Knicks as one of the teams occupying a slot on his preferred list of landing places. The highest value for Irving is right now. Trading for Kyrie Irving helps the Suns both in the short-term and the long-term, as long as they don't trade any of their "Big Four Core". Read More »

McIlroy's Open hopes boosted by fightback

Open champion in 2014 at Hoylake and a four-time major victor, McIlroy admitted it took some strong words from his caddy JP Fitzgerald to help him recover.

No more hanging his head. With a 20-foot birdie putt on the tough par 4 18th hole, McIlroy closed out a four-under par 32 on Royal Birkdale's back nine, making up for a nightmarish start that him saw bogey five of his first six holes. "Thankfully he's not had to do it too often". Most of the time there's at least a group that gets the worst weather, and it's nearly impossible to win in that circumstance at an Open Championship.
