Woods hasn't played in his Washington event since 2015 because of back issues, but recalls wondering past year if he might ever play again. "I've done some things I haven't done in over a decade", Woods said Wednesday. But here's hoping that a switch to a mallet putter will have a positive impact on his game, and allow him to properly compete again. That he might use a different model putter in the middle of his season shows a little of the frustration.

You can keep up with the schedule and all of the results of the World Cup as they happen here. Joachim Löw believes there must be "big changes" in Germany after the nation's shock group-stage exit at the World Cup . Pegged as +190 underdogs on Saturday, Portugal has looked ordinary at times during their 3-5-1 run, and in the group stage relied heavily on Cristiano Ronaldo, who scored four of the squad's five goals to remain a +450 bet on the World Cup top goalscorer odds.

England's defeat to Belgium meant they finished runners-up in Group G. If they had held the Red Devils to a draw, as winners they would be facing Japan - ranked 61 in the world, six places below Panama - as opposed to one of the best 20 teams on the planet.

The last time Jordan was a free agent, in 2015, the three-time All-NBA standout re-signed with the Clippers after an intense back-and-forth between L.A.

Last season with the Clippers, Jordan averaged 12.0 points and a career-high 15.2 rebounds as the Clips finished with a 42-40 record for the year.

Germany qualified for Russian Federation with a ideal record of ten wins and as Mats Hummels admitted after defeat to South Korea , the last time the team played well together was late 2017. From numbers one to 23, Germany were lacklustre throughout the entire tournament, and gave off the vibe of a side who believed that merely turning up would see them progress.

The 30-year-old, whose previous deal was due to expire on 30 June, had been expected to leave Old Trafford . Fellaini, 30, joined United in 2013 and has made 156 appearances and scored 20 goals.

As of Friday morning, he deserves credit for way more than that; by coming out as a gay professional athlete, the only active one in American sports, Martin's "assist" numbers are running into the millions. "In light of my experience as a professional athlete, I want to take this moment to encourage others who play sports professional or otherwise to have confidence that sport will welcome them wholeheartedly", he said.

The question is whether Ronaldo has it in his locker to tear down Uruguayan walls regardless and add to his tally of four goals, with Portugal's supporting cast hoping their record scorer can dazzle once again in Russian Federation. Since the format of the World Cup changed in 1986 to include a round of 16, Uruguay have been eliminated on three of the four occasions they have reached that stage, losing in 1986, 1990 and 2014, but progressing in 2010 against South Korea.

One implication of James opting out is that it likely removes Houston as a possible destination. The four-time MVP reportedly declined his $35.6 million player option for the 2018-19 season ahead of Friday night's deadline, making him an unrestricted free agent.

We'll have to talk about it calmly and I think it's premature for me to say something. That result turned out to be irreverent, however, as Joachim Low's team suffered a shocking 2-0 defeat to South Korea on Wednesday. I'm shocked, I'm shocked because we didn't manage to pull it off. It happened to other nations before. "We need far-reaching measures, we need clear changes".

This tournament was held in Brazil and the Italians had elected to sail over the Atlantic after Superga air disaster of May 1949 that decimated the great Torino side of the time.

Tunisia: Mathlouthi (6), Meriah (6), Haddadi (7), Bedoui (6), F Ben Youssef (7), Khazri (8), Sassi (7), Skhiri (6), Chaaleli (6), Naguez (6), Sliti (7). Still, they pushed hard for an equalizer and caused anxious moments for Tunisia as the clock ticked away but lacked the killer instinct. Instead, they wound up just about edging a team whose joint-top scorer at this World Cup is "own-goal".
