Nike Baseball Jerseys . Vonn punctuated her near-perfect season in perfect fashion Friday, earning her fourth overall World Cup title with a dominating giant slalom victory.First it was the flu and now its his neck. Its remarkable in itself that Graham DeLaet was able to complete 36 holes at the PGA Championship but even more amazing that hes within shouting distance of the lead. After getting over a raging bout of stomach flu early in the week, DeLaet added to his ailments when he tweaked his neck at the gym in his morning warm up Friday. Only a quick crunch from his chiropractor Dr. Craig Davies and a handful of Advils got him to the first tee, but the pain got progressively worse as his day went on. "I didnt think I was going to be able to hit the ball very flush at all," DeLaet admitted. "I just shortened my swing a little bit and worked with what I had. I was just kind of bunting it out there and making do." All through the round, DeLaet was rubbing his neck and turning awkwardly to avoid further pain. Davies monitored the patients progress from outside the ropes. The makeshift swing worked for him as he posted a three-under 68, making him one of just a handful of players with two rounds in the 60s over a soaking Valhalla Golf Club that was drenched early in the day and received constant sprinkles as the afternoon wore on. "It was a good day," DeLaet said. "I gave myself a number of good chances and I was able to roll a few good putts in, which was nice. I had a little hiccup there on two – well, maybe more than a hiccup – but I sttayed patient and I was really seeing the lines well and I was putting well. Soccer Jerseys 2020. " The hiccup or maybe full-on barf came when he four-putted the second hole (his 11th) from just 30 feet. After missing his second putt from just four feet, DeLaet carelessly tapped his third attempt wide of the hole before tapping in. However he managed a double bounce-back, following up the putting disaster with two birdies. "All things considered, when you take away the four-putting it was probably one of the best rounds Ive played as a pro," said the bearded wonder. "With the neck and the weather and obviously a tough golf course Im very happy with the way things went." In addition to a couple of fine rounds, DeLaet is also happy to be playing on the weekend at one of the big four. Hes missed the cut in four of the five hes played coming into this week, admitting that he may have built the events up into something bigger than they are. But with the flu and neck injury, his expectations were tempered somewhat, he acknowledged, freeing him up to simply play golf. "Its by far the best Ive gone into the weekend in a major," he stated before heading in to another session with his chiropractor, "so Im excited about the opportunity coming up." As long as the muscle relaxers dont run out and he doesnt get sick again, he may have a good chance for a high finish at Valhalla. ' ' '
TORONTO - Tyler Hansbrough hasnt played in over three weeks but his long-awaited return to the court could be around the corner. Albert Almora Jr. Jersey Cubs . The Raptors forward has been sidelined for 11 games, longer than originally expected, after aggravating a lingering left ankle injury against his former team in the Jan. 1 win over Indiana. Although theres still no clear timetable - hell be a game-time decision in Philadelphia Friday, the case for most of this month - Hansbrough has ramped up his work and believes hes made significant progress. "Today was the most Ive done on it," Hansbrough told TSN.ca prior to Wednesdays contest. "Its definitely getting better, just a few steps but its improving. I feel like Im right around the corner from playing." Participating in practice to some degree for nearly two weeks, Hansbrough continues to work with Torontos renowned training staff to strengthen his ankle. Originally categorized as day-to-day with an ankle sprain, Hansbrough was removed from the injury report altogether and is now simply being listed as inactive while the team waits for him to say hes ready to go. The 28-year-old has been hesitant to rush his return, opting to play it safe and wait until hes close to 100 per cent, according to team sources. "Obviously I want to be out there but its just one of those things where its taken a while," Hansbrough said. "But its getting better." "There was really no set schedule," he continued. "Im improving, I know that, so when Im there, Im there and Ill be ready." The team estimated he would need four-to-five days of rest after he missed his first game with the ankle ailment, and third of the campaign, in Washington on Jan. 3. The injury has turned out to be more intricate than they anticipated. "Its more of a bruise," Dwane Casey said last week. "I dont want to rush him back and I dont think he wants to rush back either," said Casey ahead of the Bucks game on Jan. 13. "If he had to go, if it was a playoff game tonight, hed probably be able to go." That was 10 days ago and still, Hansbrough and the Raptors are taking things game-by-game. "I sat down with the trainers and we kind of came up with when we thought Id be ready," said the forward. "I feel like Ill be on the court very soon." In his fifth NBA season and first with the Raptors, Hansbrough is averaging 5.5 points - a career-low - and 5.0 rebounds in 28 contests. Signed to a two-year deal last summer, his contract is only partially guaranteed for next season. With the former Pacer sidelined, a couple of newly acquired bigs have stepped up and seized the opportunity in Caseys generally strict nine-man rotation. Often the first player off Torontos bench, Patrick Patterson is averaging 9.4 points and 4.9 rebounds since coming to the Raptors in the Rudy Gay trade last month. Chuck Hayes, also acquired in that deal, has earned the trust of his coach with his veteran savvy on defence. Although he was playing well before getting hurt - even supplanting starter Amir Johnson earlier in the season - and Casey is a strong believer that you shouldnt lose your job to injury, the Raptors coach has a tough decision to make when Hansbrough is finally able to make his return. Certainly its not a bad problem for a coach to have, but what will Hansbroughs role be when hes back in uniform and how will Casey juggle his five bigs? "Well see," Casey said after practice Thursday. "Tylers a valuable part of what we were doing earlier, his intensity and what he brings to the table is important but those other guys have really set the tone for the second unit." "Im sure hes not going to be able to come in and go full-bore for big minutes but we want to get him back in the rotation at some point."
