Mickelson late to the course after lightning hits hotel

By Doug Ferguson, Associated Press MEDINAH, Ill. (AP) — Phil Mickelson had a wild Sunday, and that was before he showed up for the BMW Championship. Mickelson said on Twitter that lightning struck the hotel where he was staying, leading to an evacuation. One problem: He was staying on the top floor, his clubs were in his room and his tee time at Medinah was approaching. How’s this for crazy? My hotel was struck by lighting, I was on top floor,we were evacuated and the place is on fire(only thing of mine on fire this week.) I can’t get back into my room and may miss my tee time because I am without clubs and clothes. — Phil Mickelson (@PhilMickelson) August 18, 2019 "Kind of a funny deal," Mickelson said after ending his season with a 71 to fail to reach the Tour Championship. "The building got struck by lightning right above me and blew out a brick chimney and caught fire a little bit. There were 10 fire trucks. I got in my car and left and couldn't get back. The roads were closed and the hotel was closed." Mickelson didn't sound as though he were overly concerned, saying it would have meant heading home to San Diego that much sooner. "But things cleared up pretty quickly," he said. "I was able to get back in and get my stuff." Mickelson eventually got to the course in time to change shoes in the parking lot, but not after a tweet saying that his clubs served as a fire retardant. He headed to the range to warm up, pausing only to answer the phone when his wife called to check on him. He told her at one point, "I tweeted it." By the end of the day, Mickelson said everything worked out fine "except for my score." After winning at Pebble Beach in February, Mickelson had only one finish inside the top 20 the rest of the year, a tie for 18th at the Masters. His eight missed cuts were the most for him since 1995. He also failed to qualify for the Presidents Cup team and could be left off a U.S. team for the first time since 1993. U.S. captain Tiger Woods makes his four wild-card picks on Nov. 5. Mickelson has only two tournaments on his schedule before then. "If I play well I might try to add a couple in Asia to try to warrant a pick," Mickelson said. "If I'm not playing well, I probably won't." He also wasn't ready to comment on whether he would talk to Woods about being an assistant, saying he was mentally and physically tired and needed time to decompress. "I've had a rough four, five months, probably the worse four, five months stretch of my career," he said. "I'm looking forward to having a couple months off and kind of regrouping and come back fresh.".....»»

PBA FINALS: Not a troll job, just a good job for Don Trollano

TNT vs San Miguel Beer in the 2019 PBA Commissioner's Cup Finals has been as good as advertised - and all the stars of the two teams have been shining bright. From out of the shadows, however, the KaTropa have unleashed a secret weapon that has helped tilt the best-of-seven series back in their favor. Don Trollano has been the primary defender on Beermen reinforcement Chris McCullough and thus far, the former has made the latter work for each and every statistic. And with the series all even at 1-1, the unheralded swingman then made his presence felt at the other end with a career-high 18 points, Friday at Araneta Coliseum - all those key to his side's much-welcome 115-105 win. For Trollano, his breakout game was just another day in the office. "Gusto ko lang talagang manalo. Ryan [Reyes] is injured and I needed to step up," he said post-game, talking about their starting shooting guard who was out with a calf injury. Add to that the fact that TNT was oh so close to being a win away from the championship - and the four-year veteran and his teammates had all the fuel he needed for their already burning fire. "Yung Game 2, nawala pa sa amin, nasa amin na kaya ang mindset lang namin is to bounce back," he said. Indeed, the KaTropa just went back to work and came away with a convincing victory in the crucial contest. That workmanlike mentality was no more evident than in Trollano who, alongside his career-best scoring, also added five rebounds, one steal, and a whole lot of energy. "I've talked to him about just playing defense, crashing the offensive glass, and just allowing the game to come to you. He's got a role now on the team and he's earned it," active consultant Mark Dickel said. Of course, the now-27-year-old was just returning the trust given to him by their coaching staff. Asked what had been the catalyst for their glue guy's strong showings, Dickel answered, through chuckles, "It's probably us playing him more minutes, to be honest. But he's always been more than capable." And for doing his job, Trollano has not only earned the trust of the TNT coaching staff, but their American reinforcement as well. In fact, more than a few of Terrence Jones' nine assists in the game went to the 15th overall pick in the 2015 PBA Draft. "Siguro, nakikita lang niya akong open. Nagtiwala lang siya sakin," Trollano said. "E sabi naman ng coaches sa amin, kumpyansa lang. Pag-open, itira." Without a doubt, he did just that - and in doing so, proved to be a key cog for the KaTropa's title hopes. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

Russian boxer, 28, dies after suffering brain injury in ring

By James Ellingworth, Associated Press MOSCOW (AP) — Boxer Maxim Dadashev died Tuesday, two days after suffering a brain injury in a fight in Maryland. He was 28. The Russian Boxing Federation said Dadashev suffered a brain swelling in Friday's light-welterweight fight with Subriel Matias at the Theater at MGM National Harbor in Oxon Hill, Maryland. He underwent surgery but his heart stopped Tuesday, the federation said. Dadashev was hospitalized at UM Prince George's Hospital Center shortly after the fight, which was stopped by his corner following the 11th round after Dadashev took numerous shots to the head. Footage from the fight shows Dadashev shaking his head in his corner as his trainer, Buddy McGirt, pleads with him to stop the fight, telling him: "You're getting hit too much, Max. Please, Max, please let me do this." Shortly after, the referee stopped the bout at McGirt's request. The Russian Boxing Federation's secretary general, Umar Kremlev, said the federation would investigate whether anyone was at fault for Dadashev's death. "We need to know the truth about what happened," Kremlev wrote in an email to The Associated Press. "I believe that some human factors intervened, that there was some kind of violation." He added the federation would give Dadashev's family financial support. Both fighters were 13-0 before the bout, which offered the winner the right to challenge IBF titleholder Josh Taylor. Dadashev had been viewed as a rising star after beating two former world lightweight champions, Darleys Perez and Antonio DeMarco, last year. Before Friday's fight, he had won 11 of his 13 fights by way of knockout. In a statement, promotor Top Bank called Dadashev "a talented fighter inside the ring and a loving husband and father outside the ropes." He was originally from the Russian city of St. Petersburg but had fought exclusively in the United States since turning pro in 2016. "He was a very kind person who fought until the very end," Dadashev's wife, Elizaveta Apushkina, said in a statement issued by the hospital. "Our son will continue (to) be raised to be a great man like his father. Lastly, I would like to thank everyone that cared for Maxim during his final days." The Russian embassy in the U.S. said in a statement on Facebook it is "ready to provide any necessary assistance for (Dadashev's) repatriation to Russia.".....»»

ONE Championship: Eddie Alvarez in for a tough test against Eduard Folayang

American mixed martial arts veteran Eddie “The Underground King” Alvarez will get a shot at redemption when he takes on local hero Eduard “Landslide” Folayang at ONE: Dawn Of Heroes on 2 August at the Mall Of Asia Arena in Manila, Philippines.    Alvarez made his ONE Championship debut at ONE: A NEW ERA, but it didn’t exactly go as he had imagined. The multiple-time World Champion succumbed to Timofey Nastyukhin via shock first-round knockout. Still, Alvarez remains unfazed and as determined as ever to restart his journey towards the ONE World Title.   “Look, I got the first one out of the way. I lost, no problem. I did the same thing in the UFC [against Donald Cerrone] and I honestly almost did the same thing in my debut in Bellator. I got dropped terribly. My debut in Bellator against an Irish kid (Greg Loughran) that no one knew. I got caught pretty clean.    “I bounced back and got the win, but I’m not a big fan of my debuts, put it that way. So I got it out of the way, got it past me, and now I can go full-on, go undefeated straight to the belt,” said Alvarez.   “I go out there and I’ve given my all every time, but I think at every once in a while it’s good to take a loss and put the fire back in your belly, and I think it’s a good time to have that. Sometimes you need that fire to burn long enough to get to that World Title.”       For this upcoming bout, Alvarez will face another tough and exciting foe in Folayang, the former ONE Lightweight World Champion who has seen his fair share of success against formidable opponents and will be competing in his homeland.   “He’s incredibly tough, incredibly durable. I understand the power of Wushu, because the guys I train with, Zabit [Magomedsharipov] and a lot of the Russians that come over to spar with us in [New] Jersey, they’re all from a Wushu background,” shared Alvarez.    “So the art is for real, it applies very well to MMA. And I’m looking forward to the toughest Eduard Folayang.   “It’s in his hometown. So I’m looking forward to a tough opponent and I’m viewing the fight as one that I absolutely have to finish. I am not coming in for a decision. I expect to lose if it goes to a decision. So I have every intention to finish.”   As an exemplary athlete and mixed martial artist, Alvarez wants to show fans what he is capable of, especially against Folayang who has a ton of championship experience under his belt and will draw from the cheers of the hometown crowd.   “I’m excited. This match-up in particular, I feel like this guy’s such a hard-nosed, tough fighter. This could be a Fight of the Year. Just my attitude and my mentality going into the fight, I like to feel that my back’s against the wall. I do really well there. I don’t like to feel respected. I like when people think a certain way, whether it’s negatively or whatever, and then I get an opportunity to shock them all,” Alvarez said.   “I never want an easy fight. My only desire is for the ONE Championship title. And this guy’s held it not once, but twice already.”.....»»

Blaze Spikers escape HD Spikers in five

Sisi Rondina came up big to power Petron to a come-from-behind 17-25, 21-25, 25-11, 25-17, 15-10 win over Cignal in the 2019 Philippine Superliga All-Filipino Conference Thursday at the Filoil Flying V Centre in San Juan. After missing their previous game against Generika-Ayala, Rondina went full blast as she lit the scoreboard with 23 kills, two blocks and ace off the bench to lift Petron to its eighth win in nine games. Remy Palma chipped in 12 points while Bernadeth Pons put up 10 markers and 22 digs as the Blaze Spikers avoided the upset ax of the HD Spikers after losing the first two sets. Petron stepped on the gas late in the fifth set for a 13-9 lead before Rondina delivered back-to-back hits to finish off the HD Spikers. Mylene Paat and Jovelyn Gonzaga tallied 17 points apiece while Rachel Anne Daquis had 12 markers for Cignal, which fell to 3-5 win-loss card. Meanwhile, F2 Logistics brushed off a rusty start before catching fire in the second set to massacre Sta. Lucia Realty, 25-22, 25-3, 25-12. With Kalei Mau anchoring the offense, the Cargo Movers turned a 10-19 deficit in the first set into a rout to remain flawless in eight games. Mau finished with 13 points while Ara Galang had 11 points and 15 digs and Majoy Baron asserted her might at the defensive end with five blocks for nine markers for the Cargo Movers. Dawn Macandili was also instrumental with 24 digs and seven excellent receptions for F2 Logistics, which committed only four errors in the entire ballgame. After trailing by nine, 10-19, F2 Logistics stepped on the gas and captured the first set at 25-22. Then, it was all Cargo Movers from there as they destroyed the sluggish Lady Realtors on both ends to finish the second set with 25-3 count – the biggest margin ever tallied in the six-year history of this tourney. Sta. Lucia’s three points in the second set came from an ace by Andrea Marzan, a successful challenge by head coach Babes Castillo and an attack from skipper Pam Lastimosa. Andrea Marzan and Roselle Baliton came through with eight and seven points, respectively,  for the Lady Realtors, whose lone win in nine matches came from rookie team Marinerang Pilipina.  .....»»

Finally, Blackwater stands among PBA s elite

Before the 2019 PBA Commissioner's Cup, Blackwater only had one winning record to show in the 13 conferences it has seen action in. With a well-earned win over Alaska, Sunday at Araneta Coliseum, however, they finally got to celebrate another winning record. Not only that, their seventh win in 11 games clinched for them the third-seed for the next round - by far, the upstart team's best-ever finish in the eliminations. For the players, making franchise history was all the extra fuel they needed for their already burning fire. "Basta gusto lang talaga naming manalo para maka-stay kami sa third kasi ngayon lang din nangyari sa amin na third kami," Roi Sumang said after dropping eight of his 18 points in the last four minutes. He then continued, "Lahat, masaya. Lahat, gusto maglaro." Of course, Blackwater is only cherishing the fact that, for the first time in its five-year history as a franchise, its fate is in its own hands. "Masarap sa feeling yung ganitong number three kasi 'di katulad before na lagi lang kaming umaasa sa kung sino yung mananalo (sa taas ng standings). Ngayon, kami yung may hawak kung aonng pwedeng maging spot namin," Sumang said. In three of the four times it has qualified for the playoffs, it was the lower-seed and was booted out right away. Now, the Elite are the third-seed - and are the ones watching the likes of Magnolia, Rain or Shine, and San Miguel fight over playoff positioning. For this breakthrough, they are nothing but grateful. "We all know that we were dead-last last conference and we thank our proud owners, Dioceldo Sy and Silliman Sy for their unwavering support. Also, the players, congratulations to them for really sticking with each other," head coach Aris Dimaunahan said. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»
