Hideki Matsuyama absorbed historic golf win while in quarantine in Japan
Hideki Matsuyama is making his first start since winning the Masters a month ago, hoping to regain the form that saw him become the first male Japanese golfer to win a major championship.
There was brief period for Matsuyama to deal with his game as he returned home to Japan following his victory – and afterward needed to isolate for about fourteen days due to the Covid pandemic.
“After you win a tournament and you make some adjustments and you go on, but this time going back to Japan and really not picking up a club much over there, I didn’t get to practice very much at all,” Matsuyama said Tuesday through interpreter Bob Turner at the AT&T Byron Nelson outside of Dallas. “And then coming back here, really one of my goals now is just to try and find my game again and prepare for the PGA Championship next week.”
Matsuyama said he couldn’t see his wife, daughter or parents until after his isolate finished.
During the isolation, he set aside some effort to absorb the victory.
“I was able to probably read every news article and magazine and TV,” Matsuyama said. “And seeing how the Masters win was portrayed in Japan was great — really unforgettable — and that really stands out for my trip to Japan.”
Matsuyama said it was “by far” the most he had ever read about himself.
“A bit embarrassing,” Matsuyama said. “I’m not used to all that attention, but grateful that people took notice.”
Despite the fact that he didn’t watch the whole transmission of the Masters, Matsuyama said he watched features.
“I got nervous again, just like I was playing,” he said. “It was at some points difficult to watch because I was so nervous and all those nervous memories were brought back.”
Matsuyama had a sizable lead on the back nine preceding missing three of the last four openings to hang on and win by 1 shot over Will Zalatoris.
Concerning the green jacket, Matsuyama brought it home to Japan and wore it twice – during a news meeting and again while being respected by Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga.
“Very proud to be able to show it to my parents and family and friends,” Matsuyama said.
Greg Chappell encourages Australia to not view the India trip as a “sideshow” because “there is red-hot fury and embarrassment among our fans”
According to former Australia captain Greg Chappell, the team’s first two Test losses in India have left the nation’s supporters furious, perplexed, and ashamed.
After falling behind 2-0 in their four-match Test series against India, Australia has now lost the Border-Gavaskar Trophy four times in a row. Australia lost both games in the span of three days, with India mercilessly exposing Australia’s hitters’ deficiencies against spin bowling. Although the second day of the second Test was a competitive match, the Australian batters meekly gave up in the third, and former captain Greg Chappell claims that the performance has disappointed the home crowd.
According to Chappell, Australian cricket as a whole has to start ranking India trips on par with or even higher than the Ashes. The fact that our squad has displayed such little grit thus far in the series has enraged the Australian public, and rightfully so. The sight of a batsman being out on the first ball while doing the reverse sweep and acting like this series is not important for the future pisses off. Australian cricket needs to understand that taking on India is not a sideshow but rather the main event, equal to or perhaps greater than The Ashes, he said.
Australia was bowled for 177 and 91 in its two innings, contributing to India’s 400-run victory in the first Test, which it lost by an innings and 132 runs. In the first two days of the second Test, they performed well, reaching 263 runs in the first innings and nearly gaining a commanding lead before being bowled for 113 runs on Day 3. India secured a 6-0 victory and a commanding 2-0 lead as a result. Since 2015, Australia has not been able to defeat India in a Test series, either at home or abroad.
Highlights from the England vs. South Africa Women’s T20 World Cup 2023 semifinal: SA won the championship by 6 runs over ENG
Highlights from the England vs. South Africa Women’s T20 World Cup 2023 semifinal: Up until South Africa rallied and advanced to the championship game’s final three overs of the innings, England was coasting along in the chase.
Highlights from the England vs. South Africa Women’s T20 World Cup 2023 semifinal: After holding South Africa to 164/4, England was coasting when the final three overs of their innings changed the course of the match. At the end of the 16th over, England had scored 131 runs, and even though South Africa claimed the important wicket of Nat Sciver-Brunt in the 17th, England appeared to be able to continue scoring at the same pace. Ayabonga Khaka, collecting three wickets, bowled what might be remembered as the game-changing over of the tournament.
The victory was subsequently secured by Shabnim Ismail’s dismissal of England captain Heather Knight in the final over. Previously, South Africa’s powerplay inning got off to a poor start, but the openers picked up the pace and put up a stout defence. Ending with a half-century, Laura Wolvaardt’s opening partnership with Tazmin Brits produced 96 runs. With Brits’ second consecutive half-century, who had previously failed to reach 140 in this competition, South Africa grabbed control and was poised to surpass 170.
Following a sensational 19th over from Sophie Ecclestone in which she claimed two wickets, South Africa reached 164/4 after the 20th over went for 18. For the first time ever, South Africa has advanced to the T20 World Cup final, where they will take on the formidable Australia on Sunday.
The change in African soccer
African footballers are used to playing on the world’s football fields with only a handful of elite players who play in the best European leagues. What about the other lesser known players? They are trying to break through by taking side roads.
the results obtained by Morocco will have repercussions and will allow Africa to reap important gains in line with its footballing power.
I think that every African country should take an example from Morocco in the last world cup we saw Morocco go very far in the Competition.
Today we are going to speak mainly about Congo I think that they must begin by investing in the youth infrastructure construction of center there is so much talent in this country it is a pity that there is only one stadium in the capital of Kinshasa as a sports adviser all its young people have a dream is to come to play in Europe but before extinguishing this dream I think that the base must be solid a competition of age must be created for the young people so that it can evolve well from this moment there we will be able to consider to make the necessary (sports adviser, player’s agent) to go and see his young players in order to find the best talents to pass the next step
