Experience of playing over Augusta National counted for much, the German said. “Theres different ways of getting there, and obviously its a lot easier for these young guys, hitting a lot less club into some of the greens,” he said. “But when I play really, really good, when I bring my A-game, I can still compete, and even on a very long golf course like this.” The 24-year-old Kaufman, who was playing in the developmental Web.com tour last year, came in with a 69, the only sub-70 round since Thursday. Playing in just his second major tournament after the 2014 US Open when he missed the cut, Kaufman admitted that he is still staying with his parents back home in Alabama. Against all odds, he will now play with close friend Spieth in the final pairing of the Masters on Sunday afternoon. Explaining his mindset for that he said: “You know, Im going to hang out with my buddies and friends and family, do the same things weve been doing all week, just hang out and try to keep it pretty casual and hopefully I sleep good.” Matsuyama was the first Japanese player to finish top amateur in the Masters in 2009 and he is aiming to become just the second Asian man to win a major after Yang Yong-Eun of South Korea in the 2009 PGA Championship.advertisement He came close to dislodging Spieth from the top position, getting to within one shot of him down the back nine, but bogeys at 16 and 17 pulled him back.

Former England boss Hoddle in serious condition after heart attack

first_imgLondon, Oct 28 (AFP) Former England manager Glenn Hoddle remains in a serious condition in hospital after suffering a heart attack, a spokesperson for the former Tottenham midfielder confirmed on Sunday. Hoddle collapsed on his 61st birthday on Saturday shortly before he was due to go on air as a pundit for BT Sport. “Glenn remains in a serious condition in hospital after suffering a heart attack yesterday. He continues to respond well to treatment,” said the spokesperson. “The family are grateful to everyone in the football family – and beyond – that have sent kind messages of support, they are very much appreciated. “In particular, Glenn and his family would like to publicly thank the BT Sport staff that treated him immediately on set following his collapse.” England manager Gareth Southgate was among the well wishers for Hoddle, who made 53 appearances for the Three Lions as a player before managing his country between 1996 and 1999. “My thoughts and prayers are with Glenn Hoddle and those closest to him following today’s distressing news,” said Southgate on Saturday. “Everybody across the game is right behind one of English football’s greats and we are willing him to pull through.” Widely considered as one of the best English players of his generation, Hoddle won two FA Cups and the UEFA Cup in 1984 during a 12-season career with Tottenham. He later moved to Monaco, winning the French title in 1987-88 under future Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger. Hoddle ended his playing career with two player-manager spells with Swindon and Chelsea before being handed the role as England boss.advertisement After a last 16 exit to Argentina in the 1998 World Cup, he lost his job the following year after controversial remarks he made suggesting disabled people were paying the price for sins in past lives in an interview with The Times. Hoddle went onto manage Southampton, Tottenham and Wolves for short spells before opening a football academy and moving into punditry. (AFP) ATATlast_img read more
