JOHNS CREEK, Ga. Dries Mertens Voetbalshirt . -- Not long ago, Gunn Yangs game was such a mess that his college coach took away his scholarship. Might want to reconsider that decision. The 20-year-old South Korean never trailed while completing an improbable run to the U.S. Amateur title Sunday, beating Canadas Corey Conners 2 and 1 at Atlanta Athletic Club. "I had not won a tournament in a long time, maybe like five or six years," Yang said. At No. 776, he became the lowest-ranked player in the world amateur standings to capture the countrys biggest title for non-professional golfers. Along the way, he beat five players inside the top 100, including the 44th-ranked Conners from Kitchener, Ont. Yang, who lived in Australia for five years and now plays at San Diego State, pushed his lead to 2 up with four to play by rolling in an 18-foot birdie putt at No. 14. He closed out the match with a tap-in par at No. 17, the 35th hole of the grueling day. The afternoon round was halted by a rain delay of 1 hour, 37 minutes. "I had never heard of him before," Conners said. "He obviously had a great week." Indeed, Yang was one of the most unlikely champions in the history of the 119-year-old event. A redshirt sophomore, he has played in just four college events, his career sidetracked by a herniated disk that required laser surgery. Just three weeks ago, he withdrew from the California State Open after playing the first nine holes at 6 over. Now, at the home club of Bobby Jones, the greatest amateur of them all, Yang hoisted the Havemeyer Trophy. Does he think hell get that scholarship back, too? "Better," Yang said, breaking into a big smile, "or else Im going to transfer." Conners had a chance to push the match to the limit with a 15-foot birdie attempt at No. 17. It slid by the right side of the cup. Yang, whose 18-footer to win the match caught the right lip and spun out, knocked in what was nothing more than a gimme par to wrap up the title. He pumped his fist, hugged his caddie and let out a scream. "He didnt really have any weaknesses out there," Conners said. "He didnt give me any openings to climb through." The loss came one week after another Canadian, 16-year-old Brooke Mackenzie Henderson, was beaten in the final of the U.S. Womens Amateur. This was the second straight U.S. Amateur final featuring two international players. The 22-year-old Conners, who played at Kent State, reached the semifinals last year and again came up short of becoming the first Canadian winner since 1971. Instead, it was Yang joining Byeong-Hun An from 2009 as the only winners from South Korea. Yang jumped ahead right away when Conners bogeyed the first hole. But the margin was never more than 2 up, the match tight all the way. Heading into the midday break, it was Conners with the momentum. He birdied the par-5 18th even after his drive wound up some 75 yards behind Gunns and in a fairway bunker. Conners laid up short of the water and put his third shot about 4 feet away. Gunn reached the green in two but three-putted from 60 feet for par, reducing his lead to 1 up. Conners tied the match when they returned to the first hole for the afternoon round. Yang drove into the trees, had to punch out, and hit a poor flop shot into a bunker to take bogey. Yang pulled ahead again at the sixth, where the tee box was pushed way up to create a 298-yard par 4. Both players went with driver, Yang sending his ball over the green while Conners came up short in a front bunker. Yang chipped up and made par; Conners failed to get up and down. At the par-3 seventh, the Canadian found himself in the sand again. The result was the same -- another bogey that gave Yang a 2-up advantage. Conners cut into the lead with a 10-foot birdie at the 10th as ominous clouds rolled over the course, thunder rumbling in the distance. After both players teed off at the 11th, a downpour halted the match and sent fans scurrying for cover. When play resumed, Yang missed a couple of chances to stretch his lead. He finally converted at No. 14, and protected his advantage with a brilliant up-and-down over a pond at the par-3 15th. Not bad for a guy who didnt even bring enough clothes to make it through the week without washing. "I took three shorts and four shirts," Yang said. "That was it." Axel Witsel Shirt . The best round belonged to Pat Perez. Tiger Woods didnt come close to claiming either Thursday in the Farmers Insurance Open, where the seven-time champion failed to break par in the opening round for first time in his career. Shirt Michy Batshuayi .com) - The Chicago White Sox have officially announced that the club has agreed to terms with utilityman Emilio Bonifacio on a one-year, $4 million contract that includes a team option for the 2016 season. http://www.voetbalshirtwinkelbelgie.be/ … laini.html . A police inspector told The Associated Press the crane operator is not yet suspected of any wrongdoing but is considered a key witness to the accident at the Arena Corinthians.New Orleans, LA (SportsNetwork.com) - Arron Afflalo and Ty Lawson were both instrumental down the stretch to help the Denver Nuggets snap their seven-game losing streak. Afflalo had a team-high 20 points and Lawson distributed 13 assists in the Nuggets 93-85 win over the New Orleans Pelicans on Wednesday night. Lawson had just five points on 2-of-12 shooting, but his basket late in the fourth along with a pair of assists to Afflalo aided to the win. I thought defensively that we were active, Nuggets coach Brian Shaw said. We didnt turn the ball over a great deal. Tyreke Evans scored 15 of his 25 points in the third quarter to pace the Pelicans, who had their four-game winning streak halted. Anthony Davis, who temporarily left the game in the third after suffering a leg injury, supplied 24 points and 12 rebounds in the setback. New Orleans trailed by six with under four minutes left in the fourth when Davis converted a runner through the lane before Eric Gordon, who went 4-of-15 shooting for 11 points, knocked down a 3-pointer to cut the deficit to one. The Nuggets countered as Lawson found Afflalo for a trey, then Lawson made a layup after a nifty drive on forwards Dante Cunningham and Omer Asik, increasing the advantage to 91-85 with 1:34 remaining. We had a few defensive miscues. We gave up some timely (3-pointers). That one from Afflalo was a tough one to come back from, Pelicans coach Monty Williams said. Ryan Anderson was off the mark for the Pelicans and Denver gained an extended possession at the other end after a missed jumper from Lawson went off Davis out of bounds. Afflalo made it count, hitting a jumper on a feed from Lawson to make it an eight-point game, and the Nuggets got back in the win column. Shirt Rode Duivels Kevin De Bruyne. Evans 3-pointer gave the Pelicans a 55-54 lead, then he capped an 18-5 surge to open the second half with a jumper the next trip down the floor. Lawson and Afflalo each connected on 3s, however, to move Denver back in front. Late in the third, New Orleans got a scare when Evans went up top to Davis for an alley-oop, but Kenneth Faried was there to intercept the pass and Davis landed awkwardly. Davis gingerly walked off the floor and was helped into the locker room by the Pelicans staff. After receiving medical attention, he came out of the locker room early in the fourth after what was diagnosed as a groin injury and was immediately inserted back into the game. Both teams went into the fourth tied at 70-70. The Nuggets made five straight shots during a 13-2 run in the first quarter, with Faried and Afflalo each alternating a pair of baskets to help the visitors grab a 24-13 lead. Denver preserved its 11-point margin after the first, then Danilo Gallinari dropped in a 3-pointer over four minutes into the second, extending the lead to 39-23. New Orleans responded with an 8-0 run that Davis capped with six straight points. Gallinari missed a 3 in the closing seconds of the half prior to Faried scrambling for an offensive rebound over Cunningham and making a mid- range jumper for a 49-39 Nuggets lead at the break.
