Column: Thompson's year marked by no wins, painful losses

  Column: Thompson's year marked by no wins, painful losses NAPLES, Fla. (AP) — The offseason can't get here soon enough for Lexi Thompson, except that she has two tournaments left, both at Tiburon Golf Club. Only one of them can salvage a lost year. First up is the CME Group Tour Championship, the final event of the LPGA Tour season. And while the standings don't matter — whoever wins the tournament wins the Race to CME Globe and $1.5 million — that Thompson is at No. 7 is only another reminder of a forgettable year. She is the only player in the top 10 without a victory this season.

Tiger always seemed more focused on 18 majors than 82 tour wins. You could argue that Jack faced more all-time greats in his day than Tiger . Tiger 's rivals outside of Phil aren't really comparable to Player, Palmer, Watson, Seve, etc. But you can also argue that Tiger faced deeper fields where more people had a chance to win. I might go Tiger because I got to see him play his whole career live, and because he had more of an Arnold Palmer type quality of spurring mass popularization of the game. Tiger maybe has the best peak but Jack the better overall career, too.

Notice that tigers are not significantly bigger than lions even when they weigh quite a lot more. This is important because it indicates the strength of a tiger is greater due to higher muscle density. As a rule of thumb denser muscles are stronger muscles. Therefore, one can conclude that tigers are the stronger animal Equipped with pure strength and power, the tiger takes less time to tackle prey even as large as buffalo (around 5 minutes or less !), while even the lion’s teamwork is not always so helpful against big game like buffaloes; as a result, lions, with their stiff jaws and rather weak forelimbs, take

NASSAU, Bahamas (AP) — The only certainty about Tiger Woods is that he won't be playing very much golf, and that's if he decides it's worth trying to scale a mountain taller than all the previous ones.

“Making progress,” he wrote to accompany a video of his swing he posted on Twitter two weeks ago.

“I'm so far from that,” he said Tuesday when talking about taking on Jon Rahm and Collin Morikawa and Rory McIlroy in the biggest events on the toughest golf courses.

Woods walked into the room at Albany Golf Club without a noticeable limp as he climbed onto the stage and took his seat behind a microphone. He left the stage a little more gingerly, and conceded his leg and back were aching just sitting there.

Tigers though are more muscular they have a stronger bite than lions and can fight while standing on their hind legs, which lions can't do well . The largest male Siberian or Bengal tigers or even a large male lion will only be beaten sizewise, by large bears. Polar bears or large subspecies of brown bears are pretty much too big for even the biggest cats but tigers have killed adult brown bears too. Even a leopard, 1–3 the size of a large lion or tiger , is like a bunch of flying chainsaws. Just as the Ranger in Africa who pissed one off, in his truck. Never poke a stick at an angry leopard.

Eldrick Tont " Tiger " Woods (born December 30, 1975) is an American professional golfer. He is tied for first in PGA Tour wins, ranks second in men's major championships, and holds numerous golf records.

“We all want to see him back. We all want to see him healthy and playing like the Tiger Woods we’ve seen for 20 years,” Harris English said.

Those days were fading with age, and they probably are gone due to a badly damaged right leg stemming from a car crash in the Los Angeles suburbs some 10 months ago. Woods mentioned the possibility of amputation in the early stages of being hospitalized.

This is a slow road back before he can even think about the climb.

So much chatter is on the Masters in April, without consideration that Augusta National might be the toughest course to walk of any tournament he plays. Woods said he would love to return to the British Open at St. Andrews, where the steepest climb is crossing the Swilcan Bridge.

Woods has ruled out being a full-time player, and the argument can be made he already was headed in that direction. He played only 13 events on the PGA Tour in 2019, the last time he was healthy and the world wasn't in the throes of a pandemic.

Top Alouettes receiver Lewis might miss East semifinal against Ticats

  Top Alouettes receiver Lewis might miss East semifinal against Ticats As the Alouettes practised Friday with the snow falling at Olympic Park, it was difficult not to gaze at the sideline, where Eugene Lewis — not participating in offensive drills — was conducting exercises with an athletic therapist. Lewis, the Als’ leading receiver this season, is recovering from a hip injury that has sidelined him from team workouts the last two days. His participation in Sunday’s East Division semifinal at Hamilton (1 p.m., TSN1, TSN4, RDS, TSN Radio 690, 98.5 FM) is far from certain. “We’re still holding out hope that he’ll be ready to play, but have plans if he’s not,” head coach Khari Jones said.

Other subspecies like the Sumatran Tigers , Indochinese Tigers (commonly displayed in zoos and trained in circus/tamer shows) etc are not noticeably larger than lions. This is usually what causes all the confusion. But even the largest male lions pale in comparison to healthy male specimens of Bengal or Amur subspecies of tigers . The modern tigers from mainland India and Indo-Napalese borders are absolute mass monsters, and then we have the Amur tigers , which can reach sizes that are just mind-boggling.

That tiger will be moving anywhere from 30-40 miles per hour during said lunge, and it's more or less designed to catch things that try to dodge its lunges. The only way I can maybe picture Mike doing that is by throwing himself headlong to the side, Diving out of the way. Simply hopping to the side won't work anywhere close to 7/10 times. Even diving headlong to avoid the rush, I still don't think Mike would be able to avoid the lunge 7/10 times. Much less be able to get up off the ground before the tiger is on top of him.

The best-case scenario is a schedule geared around the majors, similar to Ben Hogan's in the 1950s after his near-fatal car accident. Hogan was 37 when he won the 1950 U.S. Open. Woods turns 46 at the end of next month.

Would it be enough to satisfy his legion of fans for him to play only a few tournaments a year?

The short is yes. Because even a little Tiger is better than no Tiger at all.

Serena Williams hitting a ball with a racket: Serena Williams has dominated tennis for much of the past two decades, winning 23 major titles and four Olympic gold medals. She began playing tennis at age 5 on public courts in Compton, Calif., alongside her sister Venus, who would also become one of the world’s best tennis players. She won her most recent major title, the 2017 Australian Open, while pregnant. Now, at 39, she is still ranked seventh in the world. Teen phenom Coco Gauff is one of a long list of players to call Serena an inspiration.

“The PGA Tour is in such a good spot with these young guys. Tiger is only going to help draw more fans to the game when he's playing,” English said. “We haven't had him for the last year and it's been doing great. He got us to where we're at. Any time he can play just adds interest and adds intrigue and puts golf in the national media.”

Abraham Ancer might become a footnote in history as the last player to face Woods in match play. It was Sunday singles at Royal Melbourne in the 2019 Presidents Cup, and Woods hit the ball as crisply as he did all year and won on the 16th hole.

Siberian Tigers (the largest tiger subspecies) usually stand about 3.5 feet at the shoulder, which is comparable to the average African Lion. This means that most tigers are on average shorter than lions, which would make them be (somewhat) less intimidating out of the two. The Geographic range of lions and tigers has had a great affect on their cultural perception. Tigers , as can be seen in the picture above, have been relegated to asia as far as their geographic distribution goes also with the notable exception of India (and to a lesser degree China) the Tigers have lived in places where there were

In a loss, it was a special memory for Ancer.

"I was happy I got to experience him at a high level in a high-pressure match. It was cool for me and I learned a lot,” Ancer said.

Equally memorable was the first time Ancer played in the same tournament as Woods, at Torrey Pines in 2018, and he wound up in the group behind him starting the final round on the back nine. Ancer recalled seeing “mayhem.”

“Any time Tiger shows up at an event, it's completely different, no matter how he's playing," Ancer said. "He transforms events.”

Think of what now is the John Deere Classic, a sleepy Midwestern tournament until Woods played in his third event as a pro in 1996 and had a chance to win. The Quad City golf community has been buzzing ever since, even though Woods never returned.

Woods made one appearance at the Valspar Championship, and the gallery was standing 12 rows deep around some of the tees. He finished one shot behind. The Innisbrook crowd remains robust. Some who went for the first time must have liked what they saw.

“Anyone who's moved the needle or changed the game so much, to still be a part of the game, will bring people to it,” Xander Schauffele said. “Whether it's once, twice or three times a year, there's just a level of excitement. I was lucky to play with him a few times. I can see what he does to people, and to venues.”

Tiger Woods explains why he won't play golf full time 'ever again' in latest recovery update

  Tiger Woods explains why he won't play golf full time 'ever again' in latest recovery update Tiger Woods sat down for his first interview post-car accident to give updates on his recovery process, along with clearing up any rumors about him returning to golf soon.Woods — whose interview with Golf Digest is the first since his car crash in February — posted a Nov. 21 video on social media of himself hitting golf balls. That caused fans to get excited about Woods' potential return to the PGA Tour. Fans now have their answer about his return to professional golf.

It's the concept of a rising tide lifting all ships, and there's no tide like Tiger Woods.

The first step is getting him back in the water, and that's no small task.

He has been down a similar path before, most notably the progress he made from four back surgeries in a span of three years. He contended at tournaments (Valspar), then at majors (British Open at Carnoustie, PGA Championship at Bellerive) and then he won the Masters.

“I don’t see that type of trend going forward for me,” Woods said, another sobering comment from his news conference. “I won’t have the opportunity to practice given the condition of my leg and build up. I just don’t. I’ll just have a different way of doing it and that’s OK and I’m at peace with that. I’ve made the climb enough times.”

At this point, no one should be looking for another Mount Everest. They just want to see Tiger, even if for just a little while.

Blow for Tiger-Cats as star defensive lineman Ted Laurent treated for appendicitis .
HAMILTON — Ted Laurent, a key cog in the Hamilton Tiger-Cats' defensive line, has undergone a procedure for appendicitis, the club confirmed Friday. With Sunday's Grey Cup game against Winnipeg looming, Laurent missed practice for the second straight day with the cause initially listed as a non-COVID illness. "I'm totally waiting on the (medical) reports," Ticats coach Orlondo Steinauer told reporters after a morning training session at Tim Hortons Field. "We're going to exhaust anything we can to let Teddy play. We'll also be prepared if he doesn't." A club official later confirmed it was appendicitis.
