Senior Open appearances and he is past president from sxx123's blog

HOMESTEAD, Fla. Air Jordan Scarpe Saldi . -- A hard crash with 10 laps remaining in the Ford EcoBoost 400 at Homestead-Miami Speedway crumpled up?Carl Edwards Toyota as badly as his NASCAR Sprint Cup Series championship hopes.It also paved the way for Jimmie Johnson to claim his record-tying seventh Cup series title.Running second late in Sundays race, Edwards aggressively moved to block?Joey Loganos Team Penske Ford on a Lap 257 restart, only for the two cars to make contact as they speared toward the inside wall on the approach to Turn 1.Logano slowed but regained control of his car and continued with minor damage, while Edwards car shot backward up the track to be knocked slightly airborne by?Kasey Kahnes Chevrolet.Six other cars were swept in, including Martin Truex Jr.s Toyota, which briefly caught fire. None of the drivers were injured.The race was red-flagged for 31 minutes and 9 seconds.Edwards immediately radioed his crew to take responsibility for the accident, saying, Thats 100 percent on me.Edwards also stopped at Loganos pit to apologize to crew chief Todd Gordon and the No. 22 team.I just pushed the issue as far as I could because I figured that was the race there, Edwards said of the pivotal restart. Joey just timed it perfectly, he moved down. I was probably a little optimistic, but I thought I could clear him or force him to lift.I just thought I had just a little more time, but he drove down as far as a guy could be expected to drive down, and thats how it ended.Edwards was classified 34th, last among the four championship contenders in the Homestead race. Logano, meanwhile, pitted for repairs and fresh tires and quickly tore through the field from eighth place to third on the subsequent restart, only for the caution flag to fly again.Logano was not positioned well for the final restart, and he finished the race in fourth place, second in the championship to Johnson. Kyle Busch, the remaining title contender, ended up sixth in the race and third in championship.Anytime you put so much on the line and you have a late-race restart, you know its gonna get crazy. Then you add two or three [restarts] on top of that and its gonna get crazier, Logano remarked.I understand why he had to throw that block, and he understands why I had to make the move, because that was for the win, Logano added. Its the only move I had, and Im not going to look back at it and second-guess that move. That was the only play I had.Despite the damaged car, Logano still had a shot at winning the race and the championship thanks to quick work by his pit crew. But once out front, Johnson drove away to a relatively unchallenged victory.We just came up a little bit short, and it hurts, Logano said. When Carl and I got into each other there, it just pretty much parted the seas for the 48 [Johnson] to run through there and gain a couple spots and put himself in position to win.He was in the right place at the right time, and that was good for him. Jordan Scarpe Sconti . -- Five former Kansas City Chiefs players who were on the team between 1987 and 1993 filed a lawsuit Tuesday claiming the team hid and even lied about the risks of head injuries during that time period when there was no collective bargaining agreement in place in the NFL. Scarpe Jordan Uomo Saldi . The 18th player to shoot 60 on the tour, Jamieson settled for par on the final hole when his 15-foot birdie chip grazed the edge of the hole and stayed out. After opening with rounds of 66 and 73 to make the cut by a stroke, he had 11 birdies in the bogey-free round. . The team also announced Tuesday that the Braves will wear a commemorative patch on the right sleeve during the season. The patch, shaped like home plate, carries the number 715, Aarons autograph and a "40th Anniversary" banner. DENVER -- John Elway will trade in the gridiron for the greens when the 39th U.S. Senior Open comes to Colorado Springs in 2018. The Denver Broncos boss was named honorary chairman of the tournament at the Broadmoor Golf Club on Tuesday.The guys that are playing in this tournament are the guys that I looked up to when I was growing up, Elway said. To be involved, its truly an honor.The ever-competitive Elway also hinted he might try to qualify for the tournament itself.I might give it a shot, said Elway, a 1.9-handicap golfer, well under the requisite 3.4.To make that a reality, hed have to improve his putting.But Im like every other amateur, too, you dont go to the putting green, you go to the driving range, right? Elway said. If I went to the putting green it might help a little bit.Elway, 56, took up golf during the springs of his Hall of Fame playing career and really refined his game after retiring in 1999. But he hasnt had as much time to hit the greens ever since rejoining his beloved Broncos as their chief front office executive in 2010.He doesnt get to play much before the NFL draft in April but sneaks in as many rounds as he can before training camp begins in late July, then hits the greens now and then during September and October.Although he doesnt really have the chance to work on his game anymore, he appreciates the games difficulties.Its a game that you can play forever and I think that its a game tthat is different every single day. Scarpe Jordan Scontate. Its a game that you can never, ever get your arms around every time, Elway said. Its a different game day in and day out, so its a tremendous challenge.And I think that most importantly it gives us ex-athletes a chance to really compete.Elway guided the Broncos to all three of their Super Bowl titles, two as their quarterback and last years as their general manager and vice president of football operations.His golf resume includes two Colorado Senior Open appearances and he is past president of Cherry Hills Country Club in Denver.The 2018 U.S. Senior Open will be held at the Broadmoor Golf Clubs East Course from June 28-July 1.Those are greens that Ive never really seen anywhere else, Elway said. I think the last time I played there, I think I hit 18 greens and shot 85. It has my number. But its a beautiful setting and a great, great golf course.Elway, who counts as his golf highlight his first hole-in-one that came on his 40th birthday, said its probably easier to covert a fourth-and-2 on the road than to sink a 3-foot putt with the quietude of the course.I will say Id probably have more confidence on the fourth-and-2, Elway said. Especially at the Broadmoor.---Follow Arnie Melendrez Stapleton on Twitter: ' ' '
