Tiger Woods to face McIlroy in Japan

I love the way it rewards attacking play and think it suits my game quite well.“Any time I can go directly at pins to try and make birdies and eagles, I think it puts me at an advantage. The other fun thing about skins is how you find yourself rooting for the other guys if you’re not in a position to win the hole.“You’re hoping they can tie with someone else so you can play for that skin on the next hole. With the skins format, you’re always in it until the end.” Tags: JapanPhil Mickelsonlast_img read more

How to do a virtual NFL training camp tour during pandemic

first_img FOLLOW US The idea of a training camp media tour is simple: go, interview, enlighten your audience.It doesn’t work quite that way in a pandemic.So SiriusXM NFL Radio is adjusting. Rather than sitting next to Tom Brady in Tampa or Jon Gruden in Las Vegas, everything is being done remotely. For more than a dozen hosts, a handful of producers and myriad technicians charged with ensuring programming hits the air, the goal is to dig deep into all 32 teams without ever setting foot on franchise soil.And while it’s not exactly like what NFL clubs are going through preparing for a season of uncertainty, it’s a major task.So why do it?“I always look at it as a challenge, it fires up your juices,” says Nick Pavlatos, the SiriusXM channel’s senior director of programming. “I remember when we had the lockout in 2011, I had a week or two to try to schedule a training camp tour. There was talk of doing only half of them. I said, `No, our listeners expect all 32.’“I never thought we weren’t going to be able to do it this year.”It’s more than the challenge, too, says Steve Cohen, SiriusXM’s senior vice president of sports programming.“That we are able to do camp shows, there’s still so much we get out of talking to the player and coaches, and asking the right questions,” Cohen explains, “and getting the information from the teams and imparting that wisdom to our listening base. So it’s very important to find out firsthand what is going on with the teams. There’s so much to cover, and this year more so; our camp tour is invaluable in terms of doing that preparation for the season.”Normally, SiriusXM crews travel all over the map to places as rural as Latrobe, Pennsylvania and as cosmopolitan as Houston. Former NFL executive Pat Kirwan, who’s been hosting on the camp tours since they began in 2005, fondly (sort of) recalls the days of planes, trains and automobiles. More rewarding have been the spoils of being at those camps.There’s no true substitute for face-to-face communications.“There is a lot of trust by the team connected with being a successful camp tour,” says Kirwan, who works with former NFL quarterback Jim Miller on the station’s flagship show, “Movin’ The Chains.”“Over time I have been able to gain the confidence of coaches that when I see them and talk about something I have an opinion on, they know it won’t be shared with other teams and not be broken down to the level of giving away privileged information. They trust Jim and me. Even coach Belichick makes sure we have the best perch in town to watch practice. He will sit with us and if we keep asking football questions, he will answer them.”That alone is newsworthy.So was getting Bill Belichick’s former quarterback on the air for 20 minutes during the Buccaneers tour program. No, Kirwan and Miller were not sitting next to the six-time Super Bowl winner. Indeed, no one from SiriusXM was at Bucs camp, but through the work of the technical staff of Doug Mortman, VP of programming operations, all the necessary equipment was there. As well as at every other camp stop.In some ways, that was the biggest hurdle to leap over.“We sent them a high-quality mic to hook to the computer, and it will sound much better,” Pavlatos says. “We also supplied a shotgun mic — an extended mic that can be further away and still pick up the audio. That’s for health considerations; we don’t want guests sharing a mic that is close to them. They don’t have to get close to the mic now.“We also sent 10 to 15 individual earbuds for the players to keep or discard when they are done. These are considerations we thought about because these teams are going out of their way to help us. So we want to make it as easy as possible for them.”Making it easier with Brady was that Miller is his former backup in New England, and Kirwan has done many programs with Brady — including once at an eight-hour auto show.“With Brady, I brought up the question not so much with the Xs and Os, but a more general question because we know Tom is relentless on that stuff,” Miller says. “Now it is much more about getting to know his teammates. And in limited practices. Tom knows it’s not going to be pretty all the time. He’d already thrown four picks, one a pick-6, in practice, and that bothers Tom.“The practices are 20 percent over and you never get that back.”Some day, camp tours for all broadcasters and writers will come back. Maybe not entirely in the same form, but in-person and in-depth.Though they believe the current format has worked well and the information steadily has flowed to listeners, Kirwan and Miller can’t wait to be in Latrobe or Las Vegas.“A lot of coaches like when Jimmy and I come, and they let us on the field literally in the middle of the drills,” Kirwan says. “They want us there and they even ask us what we think of what we are watching.”Yep, even Belichick.

IPL 2019 Auction: Sachin Tendulkar excited as class of 2011 reunites at Mumbai Indians

first_imgFormer Mumbai Indians captain Sachin Tendulkar was one of the first cricketers to express his happiness after Yuvraj Singh’s got signed in the IPL 2019 Auction on Tuesday.Tendulkar, who is the team Icon at Mumbai Indians, was excited to have Yuvraj on board for the 2019 season after he was bought at his base price of Rs 1 crore by MI at the auction in Jaipur.Mumbai wasted no time in making the first bid for Yuvraj but much to the surprise of many, the first bid turned out to be the only bid for the 2011 World Cup-winning India all-rounder.Sri Lankan fast bowler Lasith Malinga, who has played 10 seasons for MI and is the league’s most successful bowler, was also bought by MI and will return to the IPL as a player after a gap of a year.Both Yuvi and Malinga found no takers in the first round before being brought back in the accelerated bidding process later in the evening.Malinga was not bought by MI in the 2018 auction in January but had turned up as a mentor at Mumbai after he went unsold at last year’s auction. The Sri Lankan pace great had even hinted earlier this year that he was mulling retirement and that his IPL career was over.However, after an impressive comeback to international cricket in September 2018, the 35-year-old is back as a player in the IPL.”A perfect mix of experience and youth picked up at the #IPLAuction by @mipaltan! Glad to have Lasith Malinga and @yuvstrong12 in the MI team along with the likes of @sranbarinder, Anmolpreet Singh, Pankaj Jaswal & Rasikh Dar,” Tendulkar welcomed Yuvraj and Malinga along with the young new recruits.advertisementThe Class of 2011 reunites #CricketMeriJaan @sachin_rt @YUVSTRONG12 @ImZaheer https://t.co/hrB7VFqr94Mumbai Indians (@mipaltan) December 19, 2018Yuvraj and Malinga had played against each other in the 2011 World Cup final which India won to lift the trophy after 28 years. Yuvi was the adjudged Man of the Tournament for scoring 362 runs and taking 15 wickets in the campaign.Yuvraj also tweeted to thank the MI franchise and is looking forward to playing for his sixth franchise in the IPL.I am glad to be part of the @mipaltan family, looking forward for the season to begin.

We were fortunate to get those two players. To be honest, I was thinking on the basis of experience, we retained a lot of young players. And then entering this auction, we wanted to buy a few young players but the agenda was to focus on experience a lot,” MI owner Akash Ambani told Star Sports.After fetching a record price of Rs 16 crore at the 2015 auction, Yuvraj’s price dipped to Rs 7 crore in 2016 when he was snapped up by Sunrisers Hyderabad. He was bought at his base price of Rs 2 crore during January’s auction earlier this year by Kings XI Punjab. He was eventually released by the Punjab-based franchise in the lead up to to the recently-concluded auction.Meanwhile, head coach Mahela Jayawardene, who had the company of recently-appointed bowling coach Zaheer Khan at the auction on Tuesday, said the decision to buy Malinga was not taken at the heat of the moment but was a well-thought-out one.”We realised after 12 months of hard work, he [Malinga] has come back. He is performing really well. We needed a senior bowler who could guide this young group of bowlers we had. So it’s easier for us to relate to Lasith,” Jayawardene said.Also Read | IPL 2019 Auction: 8 teams spend Rs 106.80 crore on 60 playersAlso Read | Didn’t expect to get Yuvraj for Rs 1 crore, says MI owner Akash AmbaniAlso Read | IPL 2019: Zaheer Khan appointed Mumbai Indians’ Director of Cricket Operationslast_img read more
