Sergio Garcia wasn’t having any of it. Sure his opening-round 64 at the Nedbank Golf Challenge in Sun City, South Africa was the best first-day score the 38-year-old Spaniard has posted in a European Tour event since November 2015. And the four-stroke advantage over a trio of golfers at the Gary Player Country Club matched the biggest first-round lead of any tournament during the 2017-’18 season. Oh, and Sergio has won twice before on this course before the event joined the European Tour’s Race to Dubai playoff event. But in no way, shape or form was Garcia going to hint that the tournament was over after just 18 holes.

Rams' Gurley: 'Forget fantasy and forget Vegas'

Rams' Gurley: 'Forget fantasy and forget Vegas' Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurley is a leading MVP candidate, but he doesn't care about your fantasy football team. With his team holding a 29-27 lead over the Green Bay Packers on Sunday, the Rams recovered a fumble on a kickoff return and looked poised to score again with just over a minute remaining. On third-and-10 from the Packers' 21-yard line, Gurley had a clear path to the end zone on an outside run. But he stopped running and was tackled, and then on the next play the Rams took a knee to run out the clock. Gurley's decision to stay out of the end zone proved costly for some, as the Rams entered the game as 7.

Sergio Garcia was going to blow the Masters, just like he 'd blown a half -dozen majors before this. How will you remember the 2017 tournament? I'll remember it, perhaps strangely, for the unplayable It was hard not to get emotional for Garcia when he trickled in a birdie putt on the first playoff hole.

A 64 at the Nedbank Challenge was Sergio Garcia 's lowest Day 1 score on the European Tour in 3 years but comes on heels of a win and recent Ryder Cup success. GolfDigest.com. November 8, 2018 , 6:55 PM GMT.

“It’s nice, but it’s still the first day,” Garcia said. “There’s still a lot of golf to be played and a lot of tough days to come around. Obviously it's nice to start like that, I’m not going to lie, but there’s still a lot of golf to be played.”

Even so, there was plenty for Garcia to be proud of in his bogey-free round. Three of his eight birdies were rolled in from outside 12 feet. “I managed to keep the ball in play nicely,” Garcia said. “I hit a lot of greens, which is important to do here with the little spots that you can put the pins in, and I managed to roll some nice putts.”

Garcia arrived with momentum having won the Andalucia Valderrama Masters in his previous European Tour start. And before that, Garcia won three points for the Europeans in their Ryder Cup victory in France, becoming the competitions all-time leading scorer.

Indeed, arguably Garcia ’s biggest moment in 2017 was his July wedding to Angela Akins. During his victory at the Masters, Garcia talked about the include his new bride had in helping put golf in Sergio Garcia is making folks forget how much he struggled the first half of 2018 - Golf Digest.

Sitting in 30th place in the Race to Dubai standings starting the week, Garcia has no mathematical chances of winning the year-long points race; his slow start to 2018, with just one top-10 finish in a stroke-play event during the first six months of the year, was too big of an anchor to float back to the top. And then there was his play on the PGA Tour, in which he missed cuts in seven of his first 12 starts.

But Garcia has already altered the narrative of a disappointing season with his recent play—in his last eight stroke-play rounds on the European Tour he’s now 35 under par. Another solid tournament will only further change people’s perceptions of what 2018 was all about.

Raptors have the best record in the NBA. They could be better..
Another above average road trip is in the books for the Toronto Raptors – an overtime loss in Boston the only blemish on a four-game trip that ended Wednesday in Atlanta — and they return home toting the best record in the NBA. But even after all that success, a 15-4 record, three straight road wins, another back-to-back series swept, there remains this nagging feeling there could be more. More good health. More killer instinct. More efficient three-point shooting.
