Rahm admits he needs to work on anger management

first_imgERIN, Wis. – The past month has served as a rude reminder that Jon Rahm’s pro career won’t always go so perfectly. Prior to this rough patch, many wondered if the young Spanish star would ever encounter adversity. In the past 52 weeks, he has enjoyed a meteoric rise, from the low amateur at the U.S. Open to the 10th-ranked player in the world. He has won once, contended for titles as often as any player in the world and become one of the biggest challengers to Dustin Johnson’s throne. But recently the 22-year-old has also begun to show his age. It started with a meltdown at The Players, where he shot 82 and missed the secondary cut. It continued at the Memorial, where his emotional outbursts drew attention on social media. And it came to a head at this week’s U.S. Open, where Rahm went 76-73 and joined several big names in missing the cut. Even worse, on the back nine Friday, he dropped F-bombs, slammed clubs and whacked a tee sign – all on camera. Neither of Rahm’s fellow playing competitors said the flare-ups were distracting. “I understand it,” Rickie Fowler said. “It’s tough out there.” Added Hideki Matsuyama: “I knew he’s an emotional player, and sometimes he wears it on his sleeve. I was not expecting it, but it wasn’t a problem at all.” It might be if it continues. Most observers are seeing Rahm this year for the first time, but this is the way he has always played and behaved on the course. He has always been quick-tempered. At Arizona State, the coaches would let Rahm blow off steam, knowing that he needed to let the frustration out and then he’d quickly bounce back. The only difference now: As one of the game’s rising stars, he is on TV. U.S. Open: Scores | Live blog: Day 2 | Full coverage “College it was even worse, but there was nobody looking,” Rahm said as he walked to the player parking lot late Friday afternoon. “I’ve done many worse things many times on the course, but the thing is there were no cameras.” And now that there are extra eyeballs on him, Rahm is conflicted, because the same fire that has brought all this negative attention is also what has made him great. Tomahawking a club into the turf might cause fans to snicker (and the PGA Tour to issue a fine), but it helps him move on. After his outburst on the 14th hole Friday, he birdied the next hole, nearly made another on 16, and then smoked a 331-yard drive down the center on 17. “I know golfers are supposed to internalize everything, and I wish I could,” he said. “Every time I try to keep it to myself, just imagine a Coca-Cola bottle. If you shake it once, then it comes down. But once you open it, it’s a complete mess, and that’s what happens if I try to keep it down. If I try to keep it down, at some point, I’m going to miss a shot that’s not that bad and I’m going to lose it. Sometimes I need to get mad.” Rahm admits that he needs to work on his anger management. He doesn’t want to be a distraction to the other players in his group. He doesn’t want to be a poor role model for kids. He knows there must be some healthy release, some way to channel his energy. At this point, he’s just not sure how. “I’ve always been criticized for it,” he said. “I don’t know what to say. I feel bad when I react sometimes, but it’s something I can’t control. “At the end of the day, I need to look toward my golf game, and sometimes it does help. … I need to find a different way to do it, but even if I work on it, sometimes it just overpowers me.” His frustration was apparent all week at Erin Hills, where his normally lethal driver betrayed him. At a course that should have perfectly suited his power game, Rahm spent much of the week hacking out of the fescue, only fueling his anger. “You need to get mad, but maybe not externalize it as much,” he said. “It’s just hard when I feel like I’m hitting good shots and I’m trying as hard as I can and things aren’t happening. It’s unlike me. I can’t remember the last time I played my last four competitive rounds that many over par.” It’s a shame that this issue seems destined to follow Rahm as he navigates the early stages of his pro career. Though he can be intense and aggressive when things are going poorly, off the course he remains accommodating and approachable and affable – everything you’d hope for in a generational talent. “Having an eye on you, I sometimes get mad, and then I feel bad for getting mad, and then it makes me feel worse,” he said. “It’s a very downward spiral that I go into a negative place.” His reputation might depend on whether he can escape it.last_img read more

Dayna Finn was brilliant, she had a double-double with 17 points and more than 10 rebounds, and Deirdre O’Shea was just fantastic too. Everyone just played so well, they all did their job and we finally got the win.“The second half of the season is hugely important, and after losing by so much in the Cup against DCU we knew we needed to regroup and we worked all week on it and we got the win, that’s the main thing – it means a lot.”Elsewhere, Pyrobel Killester bounced back strong to win out against top of the table DCU Mercy on Saturday evening. The game was neck-in-neck throughout and with 9 seconds to go, Killester drew level at 65 points apiece and a lay-up from Hannah Thornton saw them win by two in the end.“We’re delighted,” said head coach, Karl Kilbride. “We’ve had a rough couple of weeks, we trained really hard over Christmas and we got two poor results in the Cup and League against Glanmire so we’re delighted we were able to come out and give that performance. I’m really proud of the girls for how hard they worked and how well they played.”Portlaoise Panthers meanwhile secured a big win on the road against Maxol WIT Wildcats on Saturday evening, with Stephanie Poland pitching in with a 33-point performance, while Ambassador UCC Glanmire had too much for IT Carlow Basketball on Sunday, winning out 85-58 in the end.In the Men’s Super League meanwhile, UCC Demons and Black Amber Templeogue played out an overtime thriller for the second time this season, with Templeogue managing to win out 105-103 in the end.A superb display from Demons’ Kyle Hosford, Lehmon Colbert and player/coach Colin O’Reilly drew the game level at full time at 92-92, but strong shooting from Luke Thompson down the stretch saw Templeogue home to victory.Elsewhere, Maree almost caused a major upset for league leaders UCD Marian in Galway on Saturday evening, as they ran the table toppers extremely close. A 25-point game from Conor Meany and a strong finish from Neil Baynes kept the leaders in their place though as they ran out 83-79 point winners in the end.Pyrobel Killester made it a double-header of wins at home for the club on Saturday evening as they won out 89-58 against Belfast Star.“It was a good win, we performed quite well for long periods,” said coach, Brian O’Malley. “Defensively I think in the first half we did a good job to limiting them to tougher shots and we were able to get out and run. The scoreline is a bit flattering, as there are definitely areas we need to work on for the next game.”There was big scoring between DCU Saints and Garvey’s Tralee Warriors on Saturday evening, and though Dee Proby bagged 43 points for DCU, Tralee’s Trae Pemberton pitched in with 41 points and good scoring from Darragh O’Hanlon at the other end to give them enough to run out 110-74 point winners over the Saints.Griffith College Swords Thunder also won out over KUBS, while Moycullen won out 74-62 against Éanna in Dublin.Basketball Ireland Results: January 20th-21stBasketball Ireland Men’s Super League: Pyrobel Killester 89-58 Belfast StarDCU Saints 74-110 Garvey’s Tralee WarriorsÉanna 62-74 MoycullenMaree 79-83 UCD MarianKUBS BC 66-86 Griffith College Swords ThunderUCC Demons 103-105 Black Amber Templeogue (after overtime) Hula Hoops Senior Women’s Cup finalFr Mathews v Meteors, 14.00 Hula Hoops NICC Women’s National Cup FinalKillester v St Mary’s Castleisland, 12.00 Basketball Ireland Detailed Results: January 20th-21stBasketball Ireland Men’s Super League: Éanna 62-74 MoycullenTop scorers Éanna: Mlynue Reeves 17, Conor Gallagher 15, Aidan Dunne 10Top scorers Moycullen: Brandon McGuire 27, Dylan Cunningham 10, Patrick Lyons 9, James Loughnane 9Half time score: Éanna 34-33 Moycullen Hula Hoops Under 18 Men’s National Cup finalNeptune v Templeogue, 14.00 Basketball Ireland Women’s Super League: NUIG Mystics 68-65 Singleton SuperValu BrunellTop scorers NUIG Mystics: Dayna Finn 17, Deirdre O Shea 16, Jade Johnson 15Top scorers Singleton SuperValu Brunell: Breana Bey 23, Danielle O Leary 14, Amy Waters 8Half time score: NUIG Mystics 33-38 Singleton SuperValu Brunell Thursday 25th January 201810:30am U16A GirlsCrescent Comprehensive (Limerick) v Scoil Chriost Rí Portlaoise (Laois)12:15pm U19A GirlsChrist King (Cork) v Colaiste Chiarain Leixlip (Kildare)1:45pm U16A BoysSt Mary’s CBS The Green, Tralee (Kerry) v St Malachy’s Belfast Fixtures below include – Hula Hoops National Cup Finals, SUBWAY Schools Cup finals and regular season Basketball Ireland Men’s Division One: Paris Texas Kilkenny 86-76 EJ Sligo All-StarsLIT Celtics 93-82 Dublin LionsKeane’s Supervalu Killorglin 90-66 Ulster University ElksNeptune 101-74 IT Carlow BasketballFr Mathews 80-91 BallincolligGameFootage.net Titans 69-113 Scotts Lakers St Paul’s Killarney Session 4Sunday, January 28th, 2018Hula Hoops Under 20 Men’s National Cup finalMoycullen v KUBS, 10.00 NUIG Mystics are celebrating this weekend as they finally secured their first Women’s Super League win of the season, with a 68-65 point win over Singleton SuperValu Brunell in Galway on Saturday evening.

Roach leaves tour after grandmother dies

first_imgDUBAI, UAE (CMC): West Indies have suffered another setback before next week’s first Test against India after frontline seamer Kemar Roach was forced to return home due to the death of his grandmother. The 30-year-old Barbadian, who has formed a formidable new-ball partnership with Shannon Gabriel over the last 12 months, was scheduled to leave yesterday for Bridgetown, Barbados. A Cricket West Indies statement said Roach would not be replaced but would rejoin the squad in India following the funeral. The first Test bowls off in Rajkot next week Thursday with the second match carded for Hyderabad from October 12-16. Roach is the unit’s most successful seamer, having played 48 Tests and taken 163 wickets. He is one of five pacers in the touring party along with Gabriel, captain Jason Holder and the uncapped pair of Sherman Lewis and Keemo Paul. Only last week, speedster Alzarri Joseph was forced out of the squad with fitness concerns, leaving the Windies short of a bowler with Test experience. On Monday, Windies players were also hit with the news of head coach Stuart Law’s resignation effective year end.last_img read more

Midterm Elections Pick Up Speed On Social Media

first_imgA Comprehensive Guide to a Content Audit Guide to Performing Bulk Email Verification Flickr https://www.flickr.com/photos/ejchang/2985127273/Midterm elections are historically less popular than their presidential counterparts, but they’re gaining speed on social media, reports the Pew Research Center. Pew’s latest study indicates that more than twice as many registered voters have been active on social media regarding the 2014 midterm elections as compared to 2010 midterms. For example, about 16% of voters now follow candidates, political parties or elected officials on social media, compared to just 6% four years ago. Granted, 16% is a pretty small slice of the pie, but it’s still a 10% hike. According to a Pew Research tweet, voters are most likely to follow political figures on social media in order to learn about political news first (41%) and feel more connected to candidates and political parties (35%). However, votes don’t necessarily believe they’re getting the least biased news from political figures—40% find it to be “less reliable” than traditional news.

NRC Future tense for the stateless

first_imgNew Delhi: People who have been excluded from the final list of NRC will have to appeal against it at Foreigners’ Tribunals (FT) — a quasi-judicial court and subsequently in the high court or Supreme Court.Meanwhile, the BJP-led Assam government has already ruled out the detention of people who do not figure in the list ‘in any circumstances’ till the time an FT doesn’t declare them foreigners. The Centre has said people whose names don’t appear in the final NRC cannot be declared foreigners till all legal options are exhausted. The government has given 120 days time to those excluded from the NRC to appeal in the court.

At present, there are 100 FTs in Assam and 200 more will be functional soon. Suppose, someone who loses his or her case in a Foreigners’ Tribunal as well as in higher courts, he or she will face a possible arrest and the prospect of being sent to a detention centre. Those excluded from NRC will have to prove that they or their ancestors were living in Assam on or before March 24, 1971.last_img read more

School blocks ChickfilA as dining option cites values

first_imgLAWRENCE TOWNSHIP, N.J. — Students at a private university in New Jersey can eat more chicken as long as it’s not Chick-fil-A.Rider University removed the restaurant from a survey of dining options “based on the company’s record widely perceived to be in opposition to the LGBTQ community.” The fast-food chain was included in previous surveys.Chick-fil-A says it has supported Christian values. Its corporate purpose is “To glorify God by being a faithful steward of all that is entrusted to us.”Rider says it understands some may view the decision as a “form of exclusion.” But the school says it wanted to be “faithful to our values of inclusion.”The university plans to hold a campus forum so that all voices can be heard.Chick-fil-A has not returned a message seeking comment.The Associated Presslast_img read more
