McIlroy shoots stunning round of 61

first_imgRory McIlroy shot a stunning 11-under-par round of 61 to storm to the top of the leaderboard at the Wells Fargo Championship in North Carolina. Press Association It was the Northern Irishman’s lowest round on the PGA Tour, beating the 62 he made here in 2010 – the previous course record at Quail Hollow. McIlroy had looked on target to shoot a sub-60 round – only six players have ever scored 59 in a PGA Tour event – but he had to settle for pars on the final two holes Despite that, McIlroy’s remarkable display left him with a four-shot lead heading into the final day, with Webb Simpson his nearest challenger after the local hope carded a 68. American Robert Streb, who led after the first round and was joint-top with Simpson at the halfway stage, is a further three shots back in third place. McIlroy told Sky Sports of his round: “It was incredible, it was nice just to get on a run like that. “I felt like every shot I looked at, I was comfortable over it and I really putted well today, that was the thing that pleased me most. “I rolled the ball really really nicely, and I don’t think I’ve rolled it like that in quite a while, so it was nice to see a lot of putts drop. “And to break my own course record here is pretty nice.” The four-time major winner, who felt he played too conservatively in the second round and felt he was rewarded for going for more pins today, is now clear favourite to become the first two-time winner of the event. He is also on course to smash the existing overall tournament final record of 16 under, set by Anthony Kim in 2008. And McIlroy insists he has no intention of letting up on the final day. He added of his hopes for Sunday: “More of the same would be nice obviously! But just keep it going. “Even though I’ve got a lead there’s no reason why I shouldn’t go out there and be aggressive and try make as many birdies as I can. “I’m obviously playing well and I feel like this is a course where I can shoot another low score on. ” In joint fourth place are Brendan Steele (68) and Patrick Rodgers (70) on 10 under, while Phil Mickelson, who shot a 66 on Friday, is back in a group on eight under after after a damaging treble-bogey seven on the 18th left him with a 71. The world number one started the weekend three shots off top spot but he produced a record-breaking display in his third round to overhaul all his rivals. McIlroy parred his first two holes before going on to pick up 11 birdies – including nine in 10 holes at one stage – in a second successive blemish-free round to move to 18-under par for the tournament. last_img read more

Patriots gear up for opener with Gillette simulation

first_img LIVE TV Associated Press Television News FOLLOW US On what would have been the day of their preseason finale, the New England Patriots held a game simulation walkthrough on Friday afternoon inside Gillette Stadium.It was the first time during training camp the Patriots practiced on their game-day field. New England was scheduled to visit the New York Giants for its fourth exhibition game Friday night before the entire preseason was scrapped due to COVID-19 concerns.“It’s all about mentally preparing ourselves when we’re out there on the practice field to get that game feeling that we had out there today,” third-year running back Sony Michel said.The atmosphere mimicked what many NFL games might look like when the pandemic-altered regular season begins in less than two weeks.No fans were present and only a handful of stadium employees and media members were scattered throughout the stadium. Music was blasted over the loudspeakers, and a recorded murmur of fans provided background noise.“A little bit of crowd noise, some of the exchanges that we had — you know, going from first, second, third down to punt, to kickoff, different situations,” Michel said. “Kind of getting in that mood helps a lot.”Players were divided into two groups, with offensive first-teamers wearing the Patriots’ home blue jerseys while offensive second- and third-stringers were in white. Defensive starters were split between the two.The teams played to a 13-13 tie in the non-tackling, non-padded simulation that spanned three quarters — the first, second, and fourth — and lasted about 1 1-2 hours. Plays and downs were not always sequential as the team practiced different scenarios.Cam Newton appears more firmly in the lead for the Patriots’ starting quarterback job after taking all of the snaps for the blue team. Jarrett Stidham and Brian Hoyer split reps for the white team.Newton completed 18 of 21 passes, including a 30-yard strike to Mohamed Sanu to set up a potential winning field goal.“Cam did a good job getting calls to us, making sure we could hear everything,” second-year wide receiver N’Keal Harry said. “It’s definitely different. It’s definitely not going to be like a regular game day without the fans.”Rookie kicker Justin Rohrwasser, who was working with the blue team, missed a 49-yarder wide right as time expired. Rohrwasser was 2 of 4 on kicks, while veteran Nick Folk made 2 of 3 attempts for the white team.Stidham took the first series of snaps for the white team, but went 0 for 4 and finished 9 of 13 for the day. Hoyer completed his first 12 passes before an incompletion to Gunner Olszewski on his final attempt during a fourth-quarter, two-minute drill.“It was good just for us to be able to get out there and kind of simulate what it’s like to be in a game, especially for the rookies,” Harry said.New England begins the season at home against Miami on Sept. 13, and hosts the Raiders on Sept. 27 after a visit to Seattle.The Patriots had proposed filling Gillette Stadium to 20% of capacity in light of COVID-19 restrictions. However, Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker said in mid-August that no fans would be allowed to start the season.“We’ve played when it’s quiet at home, we’ve played when it’s loud on the road, and vice versa,” coach Bill Belichick said before practice. “So, I think we’re ready if it’s somewhere in between, which is probably what it will be, then we’ll adjust to that.”Some teams plan to allow a limited number of fans into their stadiums based on varying state guidelines.“All that’s out of our control,” Belichick said. “I mean, that’s all governed by local laws and ordinances and so forth. So, nothing we can do about that.”NOTES: WR Will Hastings was released. … LB Cassh Maluia, RB Lamar Miller and DL Chase Winovich did not practice. … OL Joe Thuney had his left hand wrapped after leaving practice Thursday with an injury. WR Jakobi Meyers also participated, but was wearing a red no-contact jersey. … CB Michael Jackson watched from the sideline after also being injured in Thursday’s practice.Image credits: AP COMMENT Written Bycenter_img First Published: 29th August, 2020 08:54 IST Last Updated: 29th August, 2020 08:54 IST Patriots Gear Up For Opener With Gillette Simulation On what would have been the day of their preseason finale, the New England Patriots held a game simulation walkthrough on Friday afternoon inside Gillette Stadium SUBSCRIBE TO US WATCH US LIVElast_img read more
