COMMENTATOR: Knocked up towards Diego Costa, that is far too simple a golfer Chelsea to score! There were a lot of rumours about Diego Costa. How much are you looking forward to having him back in the squad? It is good to have him back. When he was suspended, we were able to win that game, but we need from everybody, the strength of the squad is really important because you want to play with the same players the whole season.

Some called into Trump Tower hoping to be transferred to the president-elect’s office. Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull got Trump’s cellphone number from golfer Greg Norman. Trump’s accessibility can create headaches for his aides, who can’t always control who he’s speaking to or what he’s saying. After actress Meryl Streep blasted Trump during a Golden Globes speech earlier this month, a New York Times reporter called the president-elect at midnight to get a response. Trump’s criticism of Streep dominated the news the following day, overshadowing his team’s planned agenda. For Obama, getting to use a Blackberry in office was considered a victory. He later switched to an iPhone that allowed him to send and receive email from a limited group of people, surf websites and read the news. But Obama wasnt known to use his cellphone to make or receive telephone calls, according to individuals familiar with his technology use.

After 17-year-old protester Qusay al-Umour was killed by Israeli soldiers in occupied territory on Monday, friends waited to see how the American papers would cover it. The Times didn't do a story on Tuesday. They did get to it Wednesday : Video of Fatally Wounded Teenager Sparks Palestinian Rage. The Washington Post hasn't covered the story in its print edition (though it has run two AP stories online ). But yesterday the Post bizarrely ran this story instead, a feature story without any news peg about a blind golfer named Zohar Sharon who has won several international tournaments. Reporter Ruth Eglash went golfing with him: We are playing a round in the affluent coastal town of Caesarea, which has one of just two 18-hole courses in all of Israel... Sharon lost his eyesight in his early 20s during compulsory service for the Israel Defense Forces.

-- a little stun. Good cueing. That's exactly what he got. That was beautifully struck as well. He did the right thing, a bit like a golfer. He hadn't quite make his mind up and he got back up off the shot and got back down again. The worst thing you can do is change your mind when you are down on the shot and continue. It was a lot better than it looked.

" It was one of those days where I could not hit the ball. I had taken a minimum of 256 swings at a ball that looks like a hard-boiled egg! I was not a bad golfer. I was just a 22 handicap on that sunny day, but I would not give up. My hardship continued for more than two hours. I was so frustrated I could have cried. I tried everything my instructors had taught me. I looked at my grip, thought about my stance and posture, eyed my target and continuously missed the shot. It was not a laughing matter for me or for the friends I was playing with that day. Though I got to my ball on time, I was holding them up. Again, I would not give up. I kept my cool and smiled through the tears without complaining. I wished I could scream, walk off the course and quit. My father, a six handicap golfer, taught me that golf is a gentleman's game. I never forgot his words and I remained true to his teachings.

I have just beaten a golfer who is the best in the world right now." Gracious loser McIlroy said: "Obviously it is disappointing to finish runner-up, but Graeme has played well all week and what a story it is for him. "He thought he had lost his card at the end of last year and now he is standing with a trophy in his hands after the first event of this year. I am delighted for him. "I wish I could have done a little more, but it is not a bad way to start the season and gives me something to build on in the weeks ahead." Storm, whose only other European Tour triumph came 10 years ago in the French Open, won with a par four at the third extra hole when McIlroy missed a seven-foot putt. It was the third time McIlroy, who trails Australian Jason Day in the world rankings, had been involved in a European Tour play-off, and the third time he failed.

For Swiss Olympic golfer Fabienne In-Albon, competing in the Olympic Games had been a life-long dream -- one she'd been training for since she was just 10 years old. Here's the way she describes her big moment: "At the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio when I walked to the first tee on the first day of competition, I was very nervous, I felt sick, and I wasn't quite sure how I would be able to hit this first tee shot as my entire body was shaking from all the nerves. I was [finally] standing there, just about to tee off, and the emotions that went through my body in that moment were overwhelming. I had to find a way of calming myself down and making sure that I could hit a good first tee shot." Fortunately, Fabienne had prepared for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and knew just what to do. A different kind of training For world-class athletes, even the most rigorous and advanced physical training is no guarantee of success in a high-stakes competition.

Rather like working on the sports desk, the Ryder Cup captaincy is one of those eat, sleep and breathe it roles … just with not as much eating or sleeping. The all-consuming nature of being a skipper in the modern era just about overwhelms everything else. If you’re not constantly peering at the automatic qualifying points list or worrying about your wildcards, then you’re fretting about the soft furnishings that will add ambience to the team room. Ask some of the recent incumbents of the position on either side of the transatlantic divide about the one thing that was affected most by the trials and tribulations of being captain and they’ll probably say their own golf. It probably left them tearing their hair out. At least Jim Furyk doesnt have to worry about that. The glabrous golfer, who was named as the USA’s captain for the 2018 match in Paris, remains convinced that the hoopla surrounding his appointment will not impact on his game.
