N”I am excited to return to competitive golf at the Hero World Challenge,” Woods said in a story on his website. “Albany is the perfect setting and it will be great to join this outstanding field.”The tournament has no cut.A year ago, Woods returned after 15 months recovering from two back surgeries. He made 24 birdies, but finished 15th out of 18 players. The tournament is not official on any tour, although it does award world ranking points.He made his first PGA Tour start at Torrey Pines and missed the cut, and then went to Dubai and didn’t make it past the first round before his back began acting up.Woods made the announcement just three days after he pleaded guilty to reckless driving in a deal that allows him to avoid jail time if he doesn’t violate terms of his probation.The deal stems from a Memorial Day arrest on a DUI charge when Woods was found asleep at the wheel of his car, which was still running and parked at an awkward angle about 15 minutes from his home in Florida.Woods attributed it to a bad combination of prescription medicine.ADVERTISEMENT LATEST STORIES Jake says relationship with Shaina ‘goes beyond physical attraction’ It’s too early to present Duterte’s ‘legacy’ – Lacson Woods has not played since he withdrew from the Dubai Desert Classic on Feb. 3 with back spasms.

Arsenal line up v Everton: World Cup stars return for game live on talkSPORT

first_img 1 Ozil and Mertesacker celebrate winning the World Cup getty 1 Everton v Arsenal is live on talkSPORT on Saturday 23 August 2014, kick off at 17:30 UK time.Arsene Wenger will have Mesut Ozil, Per Mertesacker and Lukas Podolski involved with the Arsenal matchday squad for the first time this season as the Gunners travel up to Liverpool.Last season the Gunners were thrashed 3-0 by Everton at Goodison in the Premier League and haven’t beaten the Toffees in four league fixtures, so it will represent a stern test for the FA Cup holders.That could mean the return of Mertsesacker to Arsenal’s defence, although Wenger may deem it too soon to thrust Ozil back into action, especially considering the potentially physical nature of the Everton challenge.Ozil experienced a mixed first season in red and white, but should be brimming with confidence after Germany’s World Cup win. Wenger, though, will probably want to bed him back in to the side and may prefer to unleash the talented midfielder on Besiktas in the Champions League play-off second leg at the Emirates Stadium.Here is how Arsenal could line up. Take a look at the XI and let us know your preferred team by leaving a comment below…last_img read more


Three things we learned today at the WCup

first_img0Shares0000Russia has a nation enthralled as the 2018 World Cup hosts sail through the opening round to confound the team’s detractors © AFP / Johannes EISELEMOSCOW, Russian Federation, Jun 19 – Japan began their World Cup campaign with a 2-1 win against Colombia, Senegal saw off Poland by the same scoreline, and Russia continued to defy their critics on Tuesday.Here, AFP Sports looks at three things we learned today at the World Cup: Written-off Russia excelRussia’s coach Stanislav Cherchesov has every reason to celebrate © AFP / CHRISTOPHE SIMONMost predictions before the first ball was kicked in anger last Thursday involved hosts Russia failing to even make it out of Group A.Coach Stanislav Cherchesov had told his team to ignore media criticism as they approached the tournament in the worst possible form, going winless in seven matches stretched over a long eight months and slumping to 70th in the world.Those critics are now looking as red-faced as the 2018 World Cup hosts’ shirts. How things have changed in the space of 180 minutes on the pitch. Their 5-0 rout of Saudi Arabia followed by the 3-1 dismantling of Mohamed Salah’s Egypt has lifted a nation’s spirits and put Cherchesov’s team almost certainly into the knockout stages and a possible last 16 date with either Portugal or Spain.Which is great news for the tournament as a bold run from a host nation adds to the atmosphere. Russian President Vladimir Putin will be among the many relieved that Russia are not joining a select club of one host nation — South Africa — who failed to make it out of the group stages.Teams defy coach turmoilJapan’s second goal scorer Yuya Osako and coach Akira Nishino in high spirits © AFP / JUAN BARRETORather than being an impediment it seems a ruthless change of coach can prove beneficial at the World Cup. Spain were in turmoil off the pitch with the sacking of Julen Lopetegui 48 hours before they opened against Cristiano Ronaldo’s Portugal last week.But under Fernando Hierro the 2010 champions played their part in producing a World Cup classic in Friday’s 3-3 draw. Four days later it was Japan’s turn to show no ill effects from new management.The Japanese FA took a high-risk move in getting rid of Vahid Halilhodzic and replacing him with former technical director Akira Nishino in April. Those who made that decision will be sleeping easier Tuesday night after Nishino’s men with goals from Shinji Kagawa and Yuya Osako beat Colombia 2-1 to become the first Asian side to beat a South American team at a World Cup.Shades of 2002 for SenegalSenegal sitting pretty after surprise opening win against Poland © AFP / Alexander NEMENOVSenegal famously won their opening match at their only previous World Cup appearance in 2002, downing holders France 1-0 in a shock win en route to the quarter-finals.Sixteen years on they made a good start again, punishing poor defending to beat Poland 2-1 to become the first African team to win at the 2018 finals.The other four finalists from the continent have struggled to get off the mark. Tunisia were undone by Harry Kane in the 2-1 loss to England, Iran did it for Herve Renard’s Morocco, Croatia were too good for Nigeria, while Russia and Uruguay have toppled Egypt’s Pharaohs.So Senegal, boasting Liverpool’s Sadio Mane, could well find themselves flying the flag for Africa come the knockout stages. Just as they did in 2002, when Cameroon, Tunisia, Nigeria and South Africa all fell at the first hurdle.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more


The Chelsea transfer targets set to star at the World Cup

first_img GROUP B: Bruno Fernandes (Portugal) GROUP B: Goncalo Guedes (Portugal) GROUP H: Kalidou Koulibaly (Senegal) 7 GROUP G: Dries Mertens (Belgium) 7 23-year-old midfielder Bruno Fernandes has also emerged as a Chelsea target in recent weeks, though they are sure to have a lot of rivals in the race to sign him. Fernandes is one of the players to have requested the termination of his contract with Sporting, meaning he could be available for free this summer. Capped six times by his country, Fernandes is an emerging talent with enough potential to become a star. GROUP A: Aleksandr Golovin (Russia) GROUP F: Hirving Lozano (Mexico) 7 7 7center_img Fernandes’ compatriot Guedes is regarded as one of the brightest young stars in world football. Paris Saint-Germain splashed the cash on the winger in January 2017, but it was not until he joined Valencia on loan this season that the 21-year-old started to truly shine and reach an elite level. He scored five goals and created a further nine in LaLiga, and this World Cup could be Guedes’ chance to show off his talents on the biggest stage. Lozano’s debut season in Europe was a resounding success, with the 22-year-old forward scoring 19 goals and assisting 11 in 34 matches for PSV Eindhoven. The youngster was bought from Pachuca last summer, and he was being linked with Europe’s biggest teams while still playing in his homeland. Chelsea are said to hold an interest in ‘Chucky’, and a move could be on the cards if he impressed at the World Cup. The CSKA Moscow star is seen as the one bright spot in a very dark time for Russian football. The midfielder has won 19 caps for his country and represented them at Euro 2016. He was part of Russia’s Under-17 side when they won the European Under-17 Championship back in 2013, and he appears to be living up to his potential. Chelsea have emerged, along with Arsenal, as holding an interest in the 22-year-old. Belgium’s 31-year-old forward Mertens is being mooted to move to Chelsea if Maurizio Sarri is named the club’s new manager. Sarri worked with Mertens at Napoli, and the boss reportedly wants his star play to link up with him at Stamford Bridge. Mertens is set to start the World Cup alongside Eden Hazard and Romelu Lukaku, of Chelsea and Manchester United respectively, in the front three of Roberto Martinez’s 3-4-3 system. 7 GROUP H: Robert Lewandowski (Poland) 7 Lewandowski has made it clear he wants to leave Bayern Munich this summer, and only a few clubs can afford to pay both his transfer fee, and then give him the wage packet he deserves. The Poland forward is generally regarded as the best goal scorer in world football, though he is generally more effective at club level due to the lesser quality of his team-mates on the international stage. A bad tournament will not kill the interest in Lewandowski from Chelsea, but it may lower his value somewhat in this summer’s transfer window. The World Cup is here, and while most fans will watch matches just to get involved, the tournament is also the perfect example to check out those players linked with signing for the club you support.The Premier League might be supplying over 100 of the players who will feature in Russia, but if transfer rumours are to be believed, another load could be heading to England’s top flight after the tournament.talkSPORT.com take a look at who these players could be, with Chelsea’s transfer targets in focus here.Scroll down to see seven players linked with the Blues who are set to star at the World Cup… Like Mertens, centre-back Koulibaly has been linked with Chelsea because of Maurizio Sarri’s rumoured appointment as the club’s new manager. The Senegal star was a key figure in Sarri’s great Napoli side, and he was actually linked with Chelsea when Antonio Conte was appointed the Blues’ head coach in the summer of 2016. Senegal have a good chance of progressing out of Group H if they are tight at the back, and Koulibaly will be vital in achieving this aim.talkSPORT will be with listeners all day and all night at this year’s 2018 FIFA World Cup™ with over 800 hours of World Cup content and all 64 games live across the talkSPORT network.last_img read more

StarTimes secures Uganda Premier, Big League rights in whopping Shs 28 Billion deal

first_img Tags: FUFAStarTimes Uganda Premier Leaguetop StarTimes and FUFA officials during the launch on Thursday morning (photo by Racheal Tebandeke)PayTv Company StarTimes has secured rights for both title and broadcasting rights of the Uganda Premier league and FUFA Big league.The deal will see StarTimes invest a whopping $7.24 Million (Shs 28 Billion) in the two leagues for a period of 10 years.This is the biggest investment in Ugandan Sports history, surpassing the $3 Million that Sports Broadcasting had paid for the same rights earlier this year.FUFA and Sports Broadcasting are understood to have terminated their contract by mutual understanding a few months ago to pave the way for StarTimes.Speaking at the launch of the partnership at Hotel Africana on Thursday morning, StarTimes CEO Andy Wanga explained that the rights secured also include distribution of all audio and visual transmissions.“The media and commercial rights also include public viewing, distributing all content media and commercial rights including public viewing broadcasts, distributing all content relating to audio, visual and audio-visual transmissions of matches through all platforms and in all forms of distribution, said Wang.“We took the decision to give back to the people of Uganda through football because of their passion for the game, added Wang.“It touches a lot of people from the grass roots so it is our way of thanking the public for supporting our business and making us the leading pay television with 70% market share after only eight (8) years.FUFA President Eng. Moses Magogo (left) and StarTimes CEO Andy Wang (right) at the launch on Thursday morning (Photo by Racheal Tebandeke)It is also worth noting that StarTimes are the official sponsors of reigning Uganda cup holders KCCA FC and their stadium, the StarTimes stadium in Lugogo.The PayTv Company has already invested Shs 4.5 Billion for a period of seven years in those two projects and is also a former sponsors to troubled side, SC Villa.FUFA President Eng. Moses Magogo expressed his delight that a deal between Ugandan football and StarTimes had been struck.“We are so grateful that today we enter into a huge partnership with StarTimes, said Magogo.“The deal with Startimes is in line with our target of making Ugandan football the best on the continent.“We are aware that we still have a lot to do in order to achieve that but we are confident we are on the right path.With StarTimes broadcasting in over 38 African countries and up to six on the Asian continent, the move to acquire rights for the two biggest leagues in Ugandan football will clearly benefit both the local clubs and players as they get a chance to attain much craved exposure on the continent.The games will be broadcast live on StarTimes but it is still unclear which channel will harbor the Ugandan games as the PayTv has four football channels-World Football, Sports Premium, Sports Focus and Sports Life.Aldrine Nsubuga, the Vice President in charge of branding and Marketing summed up the whole sponsorship saying;“The legacy we want to leave behind in the Ugandan local community is the support towards the development of football-the game that unites the whole country without bias.“A strong top division league reflects on the strength of our national team, the Cranes.The now newly branded ‘StarTimes Uganda Premier League’ will kick off in three weeks’ time while the ‘StarTimes Big League’ begins in a month.Comments last_img read more

What Advantages Does Your Startup Really Have?

first_imgWhen describing some of the common mistakes he’d seen in recent pitches for the incubator Capital Factory, Smart Bear Software founder Jason Cohen listed “invalid unfair advantages” as something that many startups needlessly tout. These include having a certain feature, having a team full of PhDs, being passionate and hard-working, and having strong SEO skills.Today, Cohen wrote a post describing “unfair advantages” that actually do make a difference. Unlike the “invalid” advantages, these “unfair” ones are not easily copied. While your competitor can add the same features as you or hire more PhDs and SEO gurus, the things that give you a substantive advantage are not as readily attainable. “The only real competitive advantage is that which cannot be copied and cannot be bought,” writes Cohen.Cohen lists the following as real advantages:1. Insider information: Although the phrase is linked to the illegalities of Wall Street insider trading, there are obviously many (legal) ways in which having deep and intimate knowledge of an industry, along with an understanding of what the “specific pain points” within that industry can boost your advantages.2. Single-minded, uncompromising obsession with One Thing: Cohen points to Apple’s obsession with design, Google’s obsession with search, 37signals’ obsession with simplicity as examples. “To remain un-copyable,” he contends, “your One Thing needs to be not just central to your existence, but also difficult to achieve. Google’s algorithm, combined with the hardware and software to implement a search of trillions of websites in 0.2 seconds, is hard to replicate; it took hundreds (thousands?) of really smart people at Microsoft and Yahoo years to catch up.”3. Personal authority: Akin perhaps to having insider information, personal authority is more than having expertise in a particular field. It’s about being recognized as a leader, and while it takes both time and effort to develop, the advantage is gives is almost unrivaled.4. The Dream Team: Having a Dream Team doesn’t guarantee success, but for a startup, having well-established, well-networked, reputable players on board can help mitigate some of the risks associated with startups. (The disadvantage to the Dream Team advantage, of course, is that members can always be hired away.)5. (The right) Celebrity endorsement: Cohen doesn’t mean here that it’s important to shell out big marketing bucks to have sports celebrities or rockstars endorse your product. Rather, he means having celebrities within the tech community – well-known investors or CEOs, for example – announce their support for or promote the use of your service.6. Existing customers: Cohen argues that every customer – even those who only took the trial offering, but abandoned your product – can offer insights and information that will be invaluable to you. Researching customers will help you continue to innovate and stay ahead of the competition.Don’t despair if you don’t have an unfair advantage, Cohen concludes, admitting it took him time to develop these advantages for his own company.
