TagsTransfersAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say Neville shocked by Alexis’ Man Utd demiseby Paul Vegasa month agoSend to a friendShare the loveManchester United legend Gary Neville is shocked by Alexis Sanchez’s failure at Manchester United.The Chilean joined from Arsenal to become the club’s highest paid player but managed only five goals in 45 games. He left to join Inter Milan on loan for the rest of this season as he was considered surplus to requirements at Old Trafford. Neville told Sky Sports: “No-one could have foreseen the disaster that was about to happen with Alexis Sanchez.”I don’t know what happened to him. That wasn’t the Alexis Sanchez that played at Arsenal.”He wasn’t old when United signed him. He’d been proven.”He added: “We knew United would get only a couple of years out of him, I know his wages were massive.”But my point is, no-one could have foreseen how bad he would be for the club.”

CURRENT RANKINGCAREER AT MAJORS PLAYERSTARTENDLENGTH (MAJORS)WON A MAJOR? Paul Azinger1990 British1990 PGA2✓ Based on how many career “major shares” a player had going into each major tournament since 1979. To be in the running, a player had to make the cut in at least half of the previous eight majors.Sources: ESPN, Yahoo Sports A chronology of the “Best Player To Never Win A Major” Nick Price1988 PGA1990 Masters6✓ Loren Roberts2004 U.S. Open2004 PGA3 Westwood, at age 44, is perhaps the most decorated English golfer in recent history — he’s racked up 23 European Tour victories and seven Ryder Cup victories and even snapped Tiger Woods’s 281-week stranglehold on the No. 1 ranking in 2010. But the majors have been painful. He’s finished in the top 10 on 18 different occasions and been runner-up three times. This has earned him close to $9 million in prize money in the majors alone, but an empty trophy case.Now on the unfamiliar grounds of Erin Hills (a Wisconsin course that’s never hosted a major before), Westwood can only hope his reign as BPTNWAM is short. He’s off to a good start, finishing Thursday 3 strokes under par — but the first three rounds are generally not the problem for the Englishman. Going into this week, Westwood’s average score in rounds 1 through 3 at the majors has been 72.0, but on Sunday, that number rises to 72.6, according to the statistical site Golfstats.The bookmakers don’t like his chances this weekend, either. Before the tournament, his odds of winning were 65-to-1, according to VegasInsider.com. Maybe they’ve been scoping out the success rate for past BPTNWAMs: Even including Garcia’s victory in April, the title-holder won just four times in 149 tries (2.7 percent) going back to the 1980 Masters. That’s a big reason why the average BPTNWAM hung onto the designation for 11.5 tournaments (nearly three years’ worth of majors) over the same time period.Westwood is also nearly outside the career phase where any golfers have ever won a major. So most likely, his BPTNWAM reign will end when he stops playing majors regularly, rather than with a championship victory. But golf has also given us a few stellar moments by players older than Westwood, including Jack Nicklaus’s Masters win at age 46 and, more recently, Tom Watson forcing a playoff in the British Open at age 59. Perhaps it won’t happen this week, but Westwood might just have enough left in the tank to shed his newfound, inglorious title in a grand way. Crenshaw would plug away for the next 18 major tournaments before finally shedding the label with a win at the 1984 Masters. (A player can leave the BPTNWAM list three ways: Winning a major; falling behind another player’s major shares; or not playing enough to qualify for the list anymore.) Among all the title-holders since 1979, Crenshaw’s streak was the third-longest — though it paled in comparison with the streak that Garcia just ended.Garcia was the modern king of the BPTNWAMs. Before his win at the Masters, he had gone 35 consecutive majors (back to the 2008 British Open) as the BPTNWAM, and before that, he’d traded the title back and forth with Chris DiMarco a few times. His 37 total tournaments as BPTNWAM are the most of any player since 1979 (eight more than No. 2 Colin Montgomerie).Now the honor falls to Westwood, whose 0.86 career major shares leads all major-less players in the U.S. Open field: Sergio Garcia2005 Masters2005 Masters1✓ Marc Leishman2735130.20 Chris DiMarco2006 PGA2006 PGA1 John Cook1994 U.S. Open1995 PGA7 Sergio Garcia2007 Masters2007 Masters1✓ Andy Bean1986 PGA1988 British8 Gil Morgan1991 PGA1994 Masters10 Sergio Garcia2008 British2017 Masters35✓ Colin Montgomerie2005 British2006 British5 Rickie Fowler169220.42 Phil Mickelson2002 Masters2004 Masters9✓ Peter Oosterhuis1984 U.S. Open1984 PGA3 Chris DiMarco2005 U.S. Open2005 U.S. Open1 Lee Westwood2017 U.S. Open—— Scott Piercy1286280.09 Greg Norman1985 Masters1986 British7✓ Matt Kuchar2815290.20 * Official World Golf RankingSources: ESPN, Yahoo Sports, Golfweek PLAYERGOLFWEEKOWGR*CUTS MADEMAJOR SHARES Steve Stricker1385540.47 Andy Bean1990 U.S. Open1990 U.S. Open1 J.B. Holmes9152150.10 Branden Grace4429140.26 Colin Montgomerie1996 Masters2001 PGA24 The 12-foot birdie putt Sergio Garcia sank to win the Masters in April had bigger consequences than ensuring him a garish new jacket. It also meant somebody else would have to take on the title of “Best Player To Never Win A Major,” a crown that Garcia had worn for nearly a decade. And according to our calculations, that player should be England’s Lee Westwood, who shot 69 in the first round of the U.S. Open on Thursday.No pressure, Westy.The golf world usually hands out the dreaded “BPTNWAM” designation by reputation and consensus, but we wanted to take a crack at it using a formula. In the past, we’ve judged the quality of a player’s performance in majors — win or lose — using “major shares,” which estimate how many majors a player would be expected to win given his scoring relative to the field average in past majors. (Fractional “shares” of wins accumulate over time for good players; also-rans garner scores at or near zero.) So for our purposes here, I’m considering the BPTNWAM to be the player who, at the time of each major, had the most career major shares without an actual major victory.1I also added the qualification that a player must have made the cut in at least half of the previous two years’ worth of majors, to make sure that he was still playing at a high level at the time of the tournament in question.According to those rules, here’s a chronology of the BPTNWAM since the great Ben Crenshaw took over the title in August of 1979: Andres Romero609798120.13 Nick Price1991 Masters1991 British3✓ Chris DiMarco2007 U.S. Open2008 U.S. Open5 Who’s the new “Best Player To Never Win A Major”?

Despite losing one of its top players to graduation last fall, the Ohio State women’s golf team will rely on plenty of experience heading into the spring season. The seven-player team, consisting of two seniors, a junior, three sophomores and a freshman, will look to build on a solid fall season that included a tie for second place at the Branch Law Firm/Dick McGuire Invitational and a sixth place finish at the Susie Maxwell Berning Classic. Coach Therese Hession said the experiences of the fall, as well as those of past seasons, will make a big difference for the spring season. “If they were all young and (had) never been through a Big Ten experience in regionals, I would probably be a little more concerned right now, but these players have all been to regionals every year that they’ve been here,” Hession said. “So they know what’s going on and they know what we need to do to get it done.” The women’s golf team will be without Rachel Rohanna, one of its top players from 2012 who had two top-20 finishes in the fall, including a 2nd place finish at the Branch Law Firm/Dick McGuire Invitational in September. Rohanna graduated Fall Semester 2012. “(Rachel’s) a really good player and we count her score almost all the time, but it just gives the other players an opportunity to step up,” Hession said. “They’re capable of stepping up and it’s just a matter of them rising to the occasion.” Along with experience, team unity will be another pro for OSU. Senior golfer Amy Meier said having teammates provide help in a primarily individual sport is beneficial. “Because it is an individual sport, we all have to focus on our own games, but it’s nice to have four other teammates that are there to cheer you on and pick you up and we just kind of rally around each other,” Meier said. OSU practiced indoors at the Woody Hayes Athletic Complex during its three months without competition. However, the team was able to take advantage of the warm weather last week, not only in Ohio but also at the Alumni Match in Naples, Fla., on Feb. 3. “It was great,” said sophomore Claudia Lim. “It was so warm and just being able to play on grass again was good, so I think that’s going to help us so we get a bit of a feel to be back on grass for next week.” Visit www.thelantern.com for the rest of this story Senior golfer Susana Benavides agreed, adding that the warm weather helped ease the transition back to playing outside. “It’s really hard to take everything from practice indoors to outdoors, but I feel like the transition doing that was OK now because we had all last week to practice here (in Ohio), too,” Benavides said. “I think we’re ready to go.” The team’s mindset is changing as well heading into its spring season. “Because we’re practicing basically for two months without competition, you’re focusing more on mechanics,” Meier said. “We’re finding that our mindsets have to change in the couple weeks leading into competition so we can get more in that playing mindset as opposed to practicing mindset.” OSU will begin its season hosting the Northrop Grumman Regional Challenge in Palos Verdes, Calif., on Monday. The three-day tournament consists of 16 teams, 10 of which are ranked top 25. Hession said the tournament is “probably the deepest field it’s ever had” in its 18-year history, so “even a top-10 finish out there would be fantastic.” “Our tournament in California has really grown and it has an outstanding field, so that makes it even more difficult starting out with some really good teams,” Hession said. Meier and Benavides will lead OSU. Between the two of them, they compiled three top-20 finishes in the four fall events. “We’re just really excited to get the ball rolling and see where this spring’s going to lead,” Meier said.

Fiorentina will visit Lazio at Stadio Olimpico tomorrow afternoon, as part of Matchday 8 in the Italian Lega Serie AFor Fiorentina coach Stefano Pioli, the chance to continue climbing in the Italian Lega Serie A is real.But there’s an obstacle: the team has to beat Lazio at Stadio Olimpico.“Our away performances this season have taught us we must never give in. We’ve especially got to be on our toes against an opponent with such quality, as every ball could be decisive,” the manager told reporters as quoted by Football Italia.“Kevin Mirallas is not making the trip, as he had an ankle problem in the final training session. Marko Pjaca is in good shape, but I wish he’d be more relaxed and enthusiastic, not weighed down by the desire to prove something.”“I don’t know if other teams are getting scared of us, but our growth process must be a gradual and continual one because we are still young,” he added.Serie A Betting: Match-day 3 Stuart Heath – September 14, 2019 Considering there is a number of perfect starts so early in the Serie A season, as well as a few surprisingly not-so perfect ones….“Our ambition is to improve upon last season and be dangerous in every game. Our future will be decided by results, so let’s not put the horse before the cart.”“The important thing is to rely on our philosophy, which is to play good football and create chances.
