NFL and NBA athletes, past and present, will square off in a new charity golf tournament this June in Connecticut.

The Showdown will pit an NFL team captained by Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers against an NBA team led by Houston Rockets point guard Chris Paul. The June 27-28 Ryder Cup-style event will take place at Mohegan Sun Golf Club in Baltic, Conn., which is currently ranked seventh on Golfweek’s Best Course You Can Play in Connecticut.

The tournament was created by Turner Sports and CAA Sports, and will be broadcast on TNT on Aug. 10 at 8 p.m. Eastern, right after the conclusion of second-round coverage of the 2018 PGA Championship. The one-hour show will include the best highlights and behind-the-scenes content from the tournament.

“I couldn’t be more excited for ‘The Showdown’ this summer,” Rodgers said. “While the NFL and NBA are home to many of the greatest athletes in the world, a golf course is an entirely different battlefield. I am extremely passionate about golf, and look forward to assembling a team of the NFL’s top golfers to determine, once and for all, which league is truly top on the links.”

Said Paul: “Golf is a favorite sport of mine and I’m thrilled to be hosting this unique tournament where NBA and NFL athletes will trade the court and field for the green. Competitiveness is essential in our respective sports and I look forward to competing alongside and against the best athletes while raising money for charity.”

LPGA rookies Emma Talley, Lindsey Weaver show heart in San Francisco http://lancastereaglegazette.sportstonews.com/2018/04/24/lpga-rookies-emma-talley-lindsey-weaver-show-heart-in-san-francisco/ http://lancastereaglegazette.sportstonews.com/2018/04/24/lpga-rookies-emma-talley-lindsey-weaver-show-heart-in-san-francisco/#respond Tue, 24 Apr 2018 22:08:57 +0000 http://lancastereaglegazette.sportstonews.com/2018/04/24/lpga-rookies-emma-talley-lindsey-weaver-show-heart-in-san-francisco/ LPGA rookies Emma Talley, Lindsey Weaver show plenty of heart in San Francisco during an off-day visit.

The post LPGA rookies Emma Talley, Lindsey Weaver show heart in San Francisco appeared first on Lancaster Eagle Gazette.

]]>

SAN FRANCISCO – Emma Talley was dancing from the moment she stepped out of the courtesy car at Fisherman’s Wharf. She pointed to a white-haired grandma kicking up her heels to Frank Sinatra’s “New York, New York” to the delight of a child and announced, “Y’all, that’s me in about 40 years.” Talley shimmied and shaked her way over toward the street performer to leave a tip. “Thank you, baby,” he crooned.

Emma “Never-Met-A-Stranger” Talley had come to the water’s edge with fellow LPGA rookie Lindsey Weaver on a postcard day in San Francisco. Wearing a cream-colored sweater with a big ole heart, Talley talked to anyone and everyone she came across. It’s an unusual quality in today’s head-buried-in-the-phone society. For Talley, it comes naturally. She even stopped to help a stranger on the street parallel park.

Talley and Weaver, both 24, met as 13-year-olds at the AJGA Polo Golf Junior Classic at Reunion Resort near Orlando, Fla. The feisty Weaver and her sister were making fun of Talley’s strong Kentucky accent.

Long-time pals

“I’d never heard anybody talk like her before,” said Weaver.

On a day when plenty of rookies would’ve turned down the LPGA’s request to film a sights and sounds segment for Golf Channel’s Mediheal Championship broadcast in favor of the range, these two couldn’t wait to hit the road. Talley didn’t even have time to scrape the sand off from an early bunker session at lush Lake Merced.

NorCal gal Juli Inkster was pleased to see a couple of rookies taking in the sights rather than beat balls on a Monday.

“You can tell by the way they handle each other that golf is a high priority for them,” said Inkster, “but there’s more to life than golf. And I love to see them out there taking selfies, seeing the city because, you know, 10 years from now, their golf, wherever they’re going to be but they’re going to remember the sights and the city and the experiences they had on the LPGA Tour.”

Talley and Weaver took a more traditional road to the LPGA. They played four years of college golf, earned their cards through the Symetra Tour and are Yelp-ing their way through the LPGA schedule one bakery at a time.

Both place high value on their college experiences. Talley, an NCAA and U.S. Women’s Amateur champion, only competed in two stages of LPGA Q-School as a senior so that she’d have a chance to finish up her senior year at Alabama. Weaver, a Gamma Phi Beta and finance major, posted 16 top-10 finishes in three years at Arizona. (She transferred from Notre Dame after her freshman year.)

Both say they took it for granted how easy, and good, they had it in college. Weaver even appreciated the pack lists coaches supplied.

“I thought I played a lot of golf in college,” said Talley. “No, we did not play that much. Looking back I’m like ‘Wow, that was living. We were living the high life.’ ”

Fresh off a career-best T-5 in Los Angeles, Talley received a text from Alabama assistant athletic director Kevin Almond. But it wasn’t the congratulatory kind.

“His wife made a pie and he knows that I love pie,” said Talley, who particularly enjoys Mrs. Almond’s chocolate chip recipe.

Back on the San Fran tour, Weaver and Talley made their way up to Ghirardelli Square, where Talley and Weaver ordered the Crissy Field, an enormous concoction of Cookies ‘n Cream ice cream, hot fudge, whipped cream and Ghiradelli Chocolate Chip Cookie crumbles. After Talley put a fine dent in the sundae, she announced to the group that she’s lactose intolerant and will later pay the price for this indulgence.

“It’s my favorite thing in the world,” she said of ice cream.

Talley pulled up the “Full House” theme song on her phone while she waited for one of San Francisco’s iconic trollies to come available. Weaver noted that her best friend fakes her way through most songs and has a habit of mispronouncing words.

“Right now we’ve really been working on Acai bowls,” said Weaver. “She says ah-see-uh bowls.”

Talley, a woman who never runs out of words, actually went to speech therapy as a child.

“In high school my (golf) lessons were 45 minutes away and me and dad would practice ‘cinnamon’ and ‘certificate’ all the way back and forth,” she said. “’Skull’ and ‘dull’ I still can’t pronounce.”

A deep-South spin on things

Acai, and the other words Weaver tries to help her on though, aren’t physical constraints, they’re Talleyisms. Her deep-South spin on things.

Talley likened each new week on the road to a maze of confusion. On Monday, Weaver had to help her find the locker room. Every day there’s a to-do list that extends far beyond golf. Whether it’s booking travel plans, writing thank-you notes or attending a function.

Weaver relies on her mother, her “momager,” to book most of her travel. Talley’s dad helped her too for a while until they booked two different hotels in the same week and didn’t realize until halfway through their stay.

“In terms of a personal life,” said Weaver, “a social life outside of golf is tough. Maintaining relationships outside of golf is tough.”

Neither has a place of her own to call home. Most of their possessions are in boxes in their parents’ house. Every time they go home, they pick out clothes they’ll rotate through for months at a time.

“I’ve worn this sweater way too many times,” Talley said, tugging at the heart.

The rookies love their new job. Wouldn’t trade it. Talley ranks 40th on the money list; Weaver checks in at 85. They’ll need to finish inside the top 80 by season’s end to keep their full cards for 2019. Weaver, who once shot 59 in a junior event, got off to a slower start on the Symetra Tour, winning the Guardian Championship late in the season to finish seventh on the tour money list and earn her card. She’s hoping to have a similar trajectory this season.

“Every week you learn more about yourself, more about your game,” said Weaver. “It’s all a learning curve.”

 A curve that this week took them down Lombard Street and up Nob Hill, where the view from the top is, as Inkster well knows, unforgettable.

Golf club that called police on 5 black women members now defends itself http://lancastereaglegazette.sportstonews.com/2018/04/24/golf-club-that-called-police-on-5-black-women-members-now-defends-itself/ http://lancastereaglegazette.sportstonews.com/2018/04/24/golf-club-that-called-police-on-5-black-women-members-now-defends-itself/#respond Tue, 24 Apr 2018 21:16:30 +0000 http://lancastereaglegazette.sportstonews.com/2018/04/24/golf-club-that-called-police-on-5-black-women-members-now-defends-itself/ Golf club that called police on 5 black women members defends itself

The five African-American women who say they were discriminated against Saturday at Grandview Golf Club in Dover Township, Pa., — in terms of both race and gender — said Tuesday a second statement from the club signifies a “backpedaling” and “backtracking” by the club.

“I don’t know why they changed their story,” Carolyn Dow, one of the five women, told the York Daily Record.

In the second statement on Monday, the club references conversations staff had with the women about pace of play, stating “During the second conversation we asked members to leave as per our policy noted on the scorecard, voices escalated, and police were called to ensure an amicable resolution.”

However, a statement released by co-owner JJ Chronister on Sunday has what the women have said is a vastly different tone, stating in part, “We are disappointed that this situation occurred and regret that our members were made to feel uncomfortable in any way.”

“They are spinning this story,” said another of the group, Sandra Harrison. “They’re grabbing at straws. That’s not how to get a resolution … all it’s going to do is cause more contention.”

The women — Sandra Thompson, 50; Myneca Ojo, 56; sisters Harrison, 59, and Dow, 56, and Karen Crosby, 58 — said Tuesday they are experienced golfers and that they were in fact keeping the pace of play.

On Saturday, they said they were at first told they were not keeping the pace of play by former York County Commissioner Steve Chronister, who they said told them he was the club’s owner.

Later, they were confronted by Steve Chonister and son and co-owner Jordan Chronister, who is married to JJ Chronister, who told them they had taken too long of a break between the first and second halves of the course. They were then asked to leave, offered their membership money refunded, and the police were called.

“It definitely sounds like they’re backtracking,” said Crosby. “I don’t apologize to people I don’t think I’ve wronged. All of a sudden, the message is changing, because we did not consent to the meeting on Sunday.”

Northern York County Regional Police Chief Mark Bentzel said Monday no charges were filed against two women who stayed to play the remaining nine holes of the course.

Redvanly makes another statement with new line http://lancastereaglegazette.sportstonews.com/2018/04/24/redvanly-makes-another-statement-with-new-line/ http://lancastereaglegazette.sportstonews.com/2018/04/24/redvanly-makes-another-statement-with-new-line/#respond Tue, 24 Apr 2018 20:29:55 +0000 http://lancastereaglegazette.sportstonews.com/2018/04/24/redvanly-makes-another-statement-with-new-line/ Redvanly, a modern athletic wear line founded in 2013, released its latest collection of men's and women's golf apparel earlier this year.

Andrew Redvanly called it “a second coming out party.”

Redvanly, a modern athletic wear company founded in 2013, released its latest collection of men’s and women’s golf apparel this year – and even debuted a fresh-looking website recently.

“This is a collection that we wanted to stand out and grab attention,” said Redvanly, the company’s founder. “We started small, and we’ve been around for a little growing organically. This is a second coming out party for us. We are putting out a line that we’re really excited about. Each year we’re trying to become a little bit bigger.”

Highlights of the new line include men’s polos named Thatcher, Henchman and Stillman – all made with Redvanly’s unique polyester-tencel blend and listed at $92. The Thatcher has received a lot of attention, Redvanly said, standing out with modern prints on the sleeves. The Henchman features a small-dot print throughout the garment. And the Stillman is reminiscent of some of Redvanly’s past polos, just with a new progressive design.

“Our goal with this line was to keep our look but add a few different modern prints,” Redvanly said. “So far people have been loving it.”

In all, the line includes 22 polo options and six outerwear options for men, and 31 options for women between polos, bottoms, dresses and outerwear. Shipping of the line started after the PGA Show in January, and Redvanly has begun focusing on developing strategic partnerships and increasing the brand’s exposure online.

Looking back, Redvanly has certainly found its place in the ever-changing, ultra-competitive landscape of golf apparel.

“This was always the plan,” Redvanly said. “Starting is hard and finishing is even harder. We started by keeping things tight – doing very little, being smart with finances, allowing ourselves to breathe. Now we’ve had enough time to learn all facets of the business and how to separate ourselves.

“And we’re not there yet, either. This is just another step in the road.”
