DeBaere denies Bruns Memorial challengers

first_imgSLAYTON, Minn. (July 18) – Round two of the Dominick Bruns Memorial Challenge Cup Chase Friday at Slayton went to Murray County Speedway regular Kevin DeBaere. DeBaere led all 18 laps after starting the IMCA Sunoco Stock Car feature outside Shaun Madden on the front row. The victory, DeBaere’s second this season at Slayton, paid $1,000. Derek Green, Chris Palsrok, Elijah Zevenbergen and Dan Veenstra rounded out the top five.Runner-up in the series last season, DeBaere had Derek Green on his back bumper most of the way. Restarts following cautions near midway, then with four laps to go and finally with three laps left didn’t make his job any easier. “It felt good to win this race, DeBaere said. “The bottom line was the line that was working so that’s where you had to be.” The Chase, which raises awareness about Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, concludes Aug. 10 at Redwood Speedway. Feature results – 1. Kevin DeBaere; 2. Derek Green; 3. Chris Palsrok; 4. Elijah Zevenbergen; 5. Dan Veenstra; 6. Jim Larson; 7. Jim Gregoire; 8. Gary Mattison; 9. James Richert; 10. Nick Johansen; 11. Wayne Oftedahl; 12. Dean Nething; 13. Shaun Madden; 14. Jake Bruns; 15. Shaun Bruns; 16. Jake Masters; 17. Shane Bruns; 18. David Breyfogle.last_img read more

McIlroy closes in on Scott

first_imgRory McIlroy shot a second-round 65 to give himself a chance of winning the first trophy of a forgettable year at the Emirates Australian Open. The overall leaderboard was also affected by Scott failing to seriously follow up his course-record 62 from day one, but McIlroy will not worry about that. He may well kick himself about a 17th-hole bogey but the fact that he recovered to birdie the last suggests he is in good shape. “When you see someone like that (Scott) at the top of the leaderboard already with a low score, it’s tough not to think about it,” McIlroy told the tournament’s official website at the end of his round. “It’s tough not to sort of press the issue and try and make birdies to catch up with them right away but golf tournaments are long, they’re four days, 72 holes and there’s a lot of time to chip away at those leads.” McIlroy’s bad year has been well covered but he insists he has long felt back on track. “I feel like I’m playing well. I’m hitting the ball well off the tee and giving myself plenty of chances. It was good to see a few more putts go in today,” he added. “As I’ve said for the last few weeks, the game is feeling much better and I’m much more comfortable with it.” Scott was always unlikely to match his brilliant opening-day score, but he could have wished for a more consistent round. Gunning for the ‘Aussie treble’ of this tournament to go alongside his Australian PGA and Australian Masters titles, Scott signed for seven birdies, three bogeys and one double-bogey on an up and down afternoon. In close attendance at the top of the leaderboard is Richard Green who rests on nine under par overall, with Friday’s round of 66 including a hole-in-one on the sixth. “That shot on the par-three sixth today was a flush golf shot. It’s nice to build a bit of confidence from hitting good shots again,” said Green. “I love coming to Royal Sydney. It’s my favourite course up here. I’ve done well here before. It fits my game, how far I hit the golf ball at least.” Matthew Jones trails by a shot in fourth, with four more players on six under, among them amateur Bradley Watt. The Northern Irishman will want to put 2013 to bed after an alarming loss of form cost him the world number one spot, but he could at least end it on a high. He trails home favourite Adam Scott by two shots at the midway point at the Royal Sydney Golf club after a fine round which contained nine birdies. Press Associationlast_img read more

Koeman promises St Mary’s stay

first_imgRonald Koeman has promised not leave Southampton this summer, even if Barcelona were to come calling. Press Association Eyebrows were raised by some last summer when the Dutch great took the reins of what many expected to be a sinking ship. Koeman, though, has been revelation in his first season in English football, not only steering Saints to calmer waters but new heights. center_img Only a point is needed to break the record Premier League points tally set last season under Mauricio Pochettino, who returns to St Mary’s for the first time since leaving last summer when Tottenham arrive on Saturday. The former Saints boss is unlikely to receive a particularly warm welcome at St Mary’s after jumping ship – something Koeman has told fans he would not do this summer. Asked this week at a Barclays Q&A event what he would do if Real Madrid came calling this summer, the Dutchman said: “Oh, Real Madrid? No, no, no. Not with Real Madrid. Never, never. You can trust me.” When asked what he would say if former club Barcelona came calling, Koeman said laughing: “Oh, you make it more difficult. No, I stay. “I am still young for the manager role. It is good to stay and to be the manager of Southampton. “It is a very nice experience to be part of the Premier League. It is the best competition in the world and it is nice to be part of that.” last_img read more
