Top-Ranked UWF, Huizinga Sweep Titles at GolfRank Invitational

first_imgThe Argonauts opened up a 14-shot lead after Monday’s morning round of 14-under-par 274 and maintained it through the afternoon 18, using a 16-under-par 560 36-hole total to make the team title theirs for the taking. They did just that in tying the tournament record of 19-under-par 845 following a 3-under-par 285 on Tuesday. Huizinga’s score of 68-71-71=210 included 15 pars as he played the par 5s at 9-unde-par for the week. Westmoreland ended the 2-day event with rounds of 69-70-71 and Blanchet signed for three 70s. On Tuesday, both Huizinga and Blanchet birdied their final hole to force the playoff, which began on the par 3, 15th hole. All three put their shots safely on the green with Huizinga the farthest from the hole at approximately 25 feet. He proceeded to make his putt for birdie while the others were unable to match him, giving the junior from Orlando his second individual title in two events this fall. The Argos have won 10 of their last 13 team tournaments and not finished lower than third in any of them. Just about the only thing to be resolved was not if a UWF player would win the individual title, but which one would it be. After 36 holes, Westmoreland and Huizinga were tied for first at 5-under, one shot ahead of Blanchet and four ahead of Bosso. The trio of Jacob Huizinga, Henry Westmoreland IV and Chandler Blanchet all tied for medalist honors at 6-under-par 210, while Christian Bosso was just six shots back in a tie for 11th.center_img Boss, who led the tournament after the first round, tied for 11th with a 68-75-73=216 score, while Julian Otero registered his best tournament as an Argo, shooting 69-76-75=220 to post a 20th place showing. His opening round 69 was a career low and included an eagle and four birdies. UWF will return to play next week when it hosts the Copperhead Championship at the Innisbrook Resort in Palm Harbor, Florida, Oct. 16-17. Print Friendly Version “They are kind of feeding off each other and pushing each other to improve and get better,” UWF head coach Steve Fell said. “They’ve gotten to where they are at that high level of play because they are used to it, whether they are in a tournament or at home qualifying.” COMPLETE RESULTSPALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. – The fact that the top-ranked UWF men’s golf team ran away from the field en route to another team victory, winning the GolfRank Invitational by 15 shots was a good story, but how they went about it is another chapter in the recent success of the program.last_img read more

Panthers QB Kyle Allen will keep starting until he loses, report says

first_imgIf the team wins, the status quo reigns, as Allen likely keeps his job as Newton makes a slow and steady return to the field from his mid-foot sprain. If Carolina loses to Tampa Bay, it’s up in the air, but potentially it paves the way for Newton to return to his starting post when healthy.Even former Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams, who made the trip overseas as an ambassador for the team, has noticed the difference Allen has made.“Everyone is saying this team is better without Cam than (with) Cam,” Williams said, per ESPN.Luckily for Allen, star running back Christian McCaffrey has helped make his job easier. He’s averaging 29.6 touches per game over the last three games compared to 23.5 under Newton and has totaled a league-leading 587 yards rushing.“I say this: They’re not asking Allen [to do] what they ask Cam to do,” Williams added. “That’s why the team is different. This is a West Coast offense, so when (offensive coordinator Norv Turner) took this position, he knew he had to tweak his offense. With Allen, all they’re asking him to do is throw the football and hand off to Christian. Rams injury updates: Todd Gurley (thigh), Aqib Talib (ribs) out vs. 49ers Rams’ Sean McVay says it’s up to Todd Gurley if he wants to play vs. 49ers “When Cam was the quarterback they had Cam running the ball, he had the RPO he had to worry about, he had to make sure the water was cold on the sideline, he had to make sure nobody came on the field when they wasn’t supposed to. He had to control a lot of things. Literally, all Allen has to do is read defense as it relates to running the ball.”The Panthers are 3-0 since Allen took over under center and 4-0 with Allen as the starter dating to last year. On the other hand, Carolina had lost eight straight dating to last season with Newton at quarterback. He completed 50 of 89 passes for 572 yards with an interception and two fumbles in his two games this season.Carolina (3-2) and Tampa Bay (2-3) face off in an NFC South showdown at 9:30 a.m. ET Sunday. Kyle Allen will be feeling the pressure in London as he faces a sink or swim scenario.According to NFL Media, which cited an unidentified team source, the Panthers quarterback could be playing for his position when Carolina takes on Tampa Bay at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. Davante Adams injury update: Packers star (toe) ruled out vs. Lions The Panthers initially had planned to place Cam Newton back under center once his Lisfranc injury is fully healed, but Allen’s unexpected success has made the team reconsider.Per the report: Related Newslast_img read more
