Marshawn Lynch's return to Raiders reportedly hinges on groin injury

Marshawn Lynch's return to Raiders reportedly hinges on groin injury The Raiders are still waiting to see how veteran running back Marshawn Lynch recovers from his groin injury to decide if they bring him back in 2019, the San Francisco Chronicle’s Eric Branch writes. Lynch, who will turn 33 before the 2019 season kicks off, is expected to have more of an interest in returning to his hometown team now that the Raiders will be playing their games in the Bay Area. Head coach Jon Gruden said the decision is one that will likely play itself out before the draft. “I think the coming weeks will give us a better indication where he is physically,” he said. “That’s the No. 1 agenda. We have to find out officially how he has responded to the injury.

PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. - Jim Furyk has been competing at the Players Championship longer than some kids in the field have been alive. He made his debut here in 1995, but his lengthy relationship with TPC Sawgrass can't be described as a love affair.

"You know, it's not that I dislike the golf course, it's just I have a lot more that I like on Tour," Furyk said after signing for a second-round 64 that vaulted him into the upper echelon of the leaderboard. It was his lowest ever score in 80 tours around Pete Dye's infamously demanding course.

"If you asked me to rank it, is this one of your three, five favorite courses on Tour, I'd say absolutely not because I've never won here and my track record. We're all selfish, my track record is not that great around this golf course."

It seems like Furyk was born to play golf; his father Mike as an assistant pro at Edgmont Country club, and young Jim was raised into the game. Jim Furyk 's only golf instruction came from his father; and many note that might account for his unusual—yet effective—swing.

ENCOURAGE YOUR CHILD TO COMPETE AGAINST HIM/HERSELF The ultimate goal of the sport experience is to challenge oneself and continually Children should be encouraged to compete against their own potential (i.e., Peter and Patty Potential). That is, the boys should focus on beating

Furyk lives near TPC Sawgrass but treats it as one would an irritating neighbor. Twenty-two Players starts have yielded only four top 10s for the 17-time PGA Tour winner, who was second to Martin Kaymer five years ago. In the last year he has played only six holes here (for a photo shoot) and admitted the course keeps him on edge.

"Pete Dye has a very good way of making things look awkward, intimidating. He makes fairways that have ample room look narrow and greens that have ample size look very small. That's his architectural style," Furyk explained. He wasn't showing signs of being intimidated Friday, hitting all 14 fairways and 15 greens, and needing just 25 putts.

Furyk has just one PGA Tour win in almost nine years and turns 49 in May. And on a course like TPC Sawgrass, the wily veteran knows there is a fine line between the value of experience and the cost of scar tissue. It's a place where painful memories can accumulate rapidly. "I think when we get courses that have a lot of scar tissue we tend to just not go and play there, but we don't have that option in this event," he said. "I'm sure folks have that at Augusta. But if a player gets to a point where he's uncomfortable for too long, you take that one off your schedule and find another place to play."

This season proves the NBA must shorten its schedule

This season proves the NBA must shorten its schedule More so than any of the other four major North American professional sports leagues, the NBA regular season seems to drag on. The time from the NBA All-Star break to the start of the playoffs is dull. Sure some teams are battling for postseason relevance. Others are tanking it big time to earn a better draft spot. But, by in large, most of the teams are playing out the string and resting players for when the spring comes calling. This has been ramped up big time during an otherwise ho-hum 2018-19 campaign. Here’s why the NBA must set into motion a shorter regular season. Keep fans captivated: What we see in February and March does nothing to build up the brand.

James Michael Furyk (born May 12, 1970) is an American professional golfer who plays on the PGA Tour. In 2010, he was the FedEx Cup champion and PGA Tour Player of the Year. He has won one major championship, the 2003 U.S. Open.

Coaching your own kid , while deceivingly very difficult to do is very commonly done. Many parents get into coaching their kids because they end up spending so much time at the sport between driving the child to practice and games and then waiting around endlessly.

In six starts this season, Furyk has found a vein of form. He finished T6 at the Mayakoba Golf Classic and T9 at the Honda Classic two weeks ago. He acknowledged that he wasn't sure what to expect after several years plagued by injuries and time devoted to his captaining the U.S. Ryder Cup squad last year in Paris.

"No lie, it takes a lot of time, and I hate to use the word work because no one ever really associates that as fun. It's a labor of love being the Ryder Cup captain. But it did take a lot of time and pulled me away from golf at times," he said. "Being with the best players in the world on both sides really, I don't know, kind of reenergized me a little bit. I wanted to get out there, and I kind of had an open mind. Three or four years removed from really playing my best golf, and I kind of wanted to see what I was capable of."

Rory McIlroy pulls off spectacular win at Players Championship

Rory McIlroy pulls off spectacular win at Players Championship Rory McIlroy kept his composure under pressure, finishing with a final-round 70 to win the Players Championship on Sunday at TPC Sawgrass. McIlroy had four birdies on the back nine to pull off his first victory in a year, putting an end to Jim Furyk's bid at making Player Championship history. The 29-year-old from Northern Ireland finished the tournament at 16 under Sunday, finishing with a par on the 18th. Furyk birdied the final hole to cap a spectacular 5-under 67 in his bid to surpass Fred Funk as the oldest champion in Players history at age 48.

Furyk turns 50 in 14 months, but a 64 on the Tour's most exacting venue can give a man pause about joining the cart-riding senior set. "If I'm competitive and I feel like I'm knocking on the door and having opportunities to win, I'd like to play some out here," he said. "If that's not the case, I'll go to the Champions Tour and see if I can be competitive out there."
