PGA Championship are coming to Bethpage B
« on: February 01, 2019, 07:15:19 AM »
FARMINGDALE, N.Y. -- The Ryder Cup and PGA Championship are coming to Bethpage Black. The PGA of America announced Tuesday that Bethpage Black will host the rowdiest event in golf in 2024, and the 2019 PGA Championship. The public course at a Long Island state park has developed a well-earned reputation for loud and boisterous fans, having played host to two U.S. Open championships in 2002 and 2009. Last year, the Barclays was held there as part of the FedEx Cup playoffs. PGA of America President Ted Bishop says players have asked for years about playing the Ryder Cup at Bethpage. He said he was watching Phil Mickelson and Rickie Fowler during a practice round at the 2010 Ryder Cup, when Bethpage Black came up. Bishop says Fowler mused, "Can you imagine what a great home field advantage and how intimidating a Bethpage Black Ryder Cup would be?" "This venue, this course, this city is going to take the Ryder Cup to a place that its never been before," Bishop said. "The PGA Championship and the Ryder Cup tournaments will also provide a tremendous boost to the Long Island economy and put the beautiful, world-class Bethpage State Golf Course on an international stage," said Gov. Andrew Cuomo. He noted the PGA Championship held at Oak Hill near Rochester this summer brought 200,000 visitors to the region, and added $75 million to the local economy. Officials at Tuesdays press conference noted that New York also hosted to the first PGA Championship in 1916 in Bronxville. "To combine the energy of the Ryder Cup with the energy of Bethpage State Park and the state of New York and New York sports fans is really exciting to think about," PGA CEO Pete Bevacqua. Bethpage Black first held a big tournament at the 2002 U.S. Open won by Tiger Woods. It held another U.S. Open in 2009, and The Barclays in 2012 as part of the FedEx Cup playoffs. Woods will be 48 when the Ryder Cup is held at Bethpage Black. Authentic Free Run Shoes .com) - Bayern Munich winger Xherdan Shaqiri is expected to miss the next two weeks because of a thigh injury.

The 26-year-old Sobotka injured his left leg playing for the St. Louis Blues in a 3-1 loss to the Carolina Hurricanes on Friday. The Blues said he would not recover from the injury in time for the Olympic tournament.MONTREAL - Boxing legend Roy Jones Jr. says hes to blame for Jean Pascals big mouth.Jones said Wednesday that Pascal is part of a generation of fighters who copied his style in and out of the ring, including the pre-fight trash talk.I understand that in Quebec, you like silence — people that come off a little bit lower key than how Mr. Pascal comes off, Jones said. Thats partly my fault because a lot of guys grew up watching me.I didnt have good sense, so I said everything and did everything. But I always aimed for the sky.The 44-year-old Jones will pull double duty on Saturday night when Pascal (28-2-1) takes on Lucian Bute (31-1) in a light heavyweight grudge match between former world champions from Montreal.He will work as colour commentator for the HBO broadcast of the co-feature pitting Cuban heavyweight Mike Perez (20-0) against Carlos Takam (28-1) of France, then work in Pascals corner for the main event.A full house of more than 20,000 is expected at the Bell Centre for what it billed as one of the biggest boxing events in Canadian history. The fighters will reportedly earn $2 million each.It pits former WBC light heavyweight champ Pascals speed and athleticism against the heady technique of the southpaw Bute, the former IBF super-middleweight champion.It will also establish who is best between two local fighters and two local boxing promotion companies — Pascals Groupe Yvon Michel and Butes InterBox.The Romanian-born Bute is a quiet guy, not given to trash talk, but his recent assertion that he will shut Pascals mouth was all the fodder the decidedly vocal Pascal needed.At a press conference on the covered Bell Centre ice, Pascal challenged Bute to stand up and say that to his face. He didnt, and Pascal scoffed.If someone said the same thing to me, Id come and say yes, Im going to shut you up, said Pascal. When you talk, you have to face the music.Im always ready to face the music. Im going to bring Lucian Bute to The Hood on Saturday night.Bute shrugged at Pascals taunts.I worked very hard, I feel good, strong and confident, he said of the bout. I know what I have to do.Many fans find Pascals flashy style and boastful talk distasteful, but it was music to Jones ears.The Pensacola, Fla., native who dominated boxing and won world titles in four weight classes through the 1990s and 2000s says trash talk is good.dddddddddddd He says it will make for a better fight, and make Pascal a better fighter.Theres always a danger — theres another guy on the other side that you might (make angry) — but thats a chance you have to be willing to take because we want to give people more than what they pay for, said Jones.We want to bring some attitude to this match and to do that we have to put ourselves under extreme pressure. If we dont talk, when we come (to the ring), we wont have anything to back up. Jean puts pressure on himself by talking, so he has to perform. You guys should embrace it.Pascal, his trainer Marc Ramsay and the rest of his entourage had Jones at his high altitude training camp at the Big Bear resort in California. It was a thrill for Pascal, who idolized Jones as a youngster.Its inspirational to him because having your idol in your corner means you dont want to let your idol down, said Jones.It was Pascal who approached Jones. That may be a sign that Pascal has finally understood he needs world class help with his fight preparation.The 31-year-old won the WBC belt in 2009 but was brought down to earth in a pair of bouts with veteran Bernard Hopkins, who dodged Pascals haymakers, let him blow himself out in the early rounds, and then took over at the end.Pascal escaped with a draw in their first meeting in 2010, but lost a clear decision to the then 46-year-old Hopkins a year later.He approached me, said Jones. He said he had to fight a southpaw and he always liked how I fought southpaws. He has no disrespect for Bute. If he did, he wouldnt have called me.When he turned pro after the 2004 Olympics Pascal would mimic Jones style in the ring, including keeping his hands at his waist and pot-shotting opponents. He has become a better defensive fighter since then, but still likes to throw bombs.Last week I was in Big Bear and I was saying wow, I was watching this guy when I was 14 on TV and now hes next to me and hes helping me for my next fight, said Pascal. This is incredible.Its a dream come true. Id watch him and I was trying to imitate him, but now I know why he was doing it and when to do it, so this is a big difference to me.And he doesnt want to let Jones down.I dont want to look like a fool in front of my idol, so whatever happens, Ill try to dig down and win this fight.
