When constructing a decision in fantasy golf and you encounter a crossroads, it’s important to remember the tenet that helped get you there.

Class is permanent.

The Barbasol Championship 2017 is the third of four additional events in the 2016-17 season. Each rewards its winner with 300 FedExCup points, berths into THE PLAYERS Championship, the PGA Championship, the SBS Tournament of Champions and many other exemptions. And in addition to a handsome direct deposit, PGA TOUR status through 2018-19 will be granted.

Despite the attraction for rookies, non-winners and the rank and file, the simplicity of the opportunity also captures the attention of the golfers for whom class is permanent. In our world, I like to label these guys as “One & Done-worthy.”

Jim Furyk is No. 3 in my Power Rankings and I’m stunned that none of my constituents are matching me in selecting the 47-year-old. Not that I’m entirely dismissive of their choices. Daniel Summerhays (Jonathan) and Chesson Hadley (Sean) are also in my Power Rankings at No. 4 and No. 6, respectively, and Scott Stallings (Mark) was a tough omission.

For me, I love that Furyk committed when it became apparent that he wasn’t going to qualify for The Open Championship. Sure, he’s not yet exempt next season, but he could burn consecutive career exemptions that would take him a few months into his age-49 season, if absolutely necessary.

Here’s where I remind you that top 10s are my goals. Seriously, I don’t expect wins. They are bonuses and infrequent at that. It’s a discourse in which I engage with gamers occasionally. Setting a baseline for a wider acceptable dispersion of results enables the decision-making process to work more organically.

Others in the field for whom this thinking can apply include Chad Campbell (No. 2 in the Power Rankings) and David Hearn (No. 7). Depending on your situation, either is One & Done-worthy.

If you’re of the mind to treat this event as a swing for the fences, then look no further than the rookie who sits atop my Power Rankings, Trey Mullinax. That’s what excites me most. Two-man gamers should plug him in immediately.

Elsewhere, I don’t tend to get giddy about up-and-coming talents because experience has persuaded me otherwise, but if Robby Shelton (No. 8 in the Power Rankings) was a stock, he might be my No. 1 tip. Also a product of the Crimson Tide, he carries himself with that confident swagger beholden of special athletes. He’s already been stockpiling results as a pro, too. And with a decent performance at Grand National – he placed T3 as an amateur here two years ago – he’ll qualify for the Web.com Tour Finals as a non-member. He’s in the fast lane, but the machine is a-purrin’ and under control. News Source

UFC on FOX 25: Weidman vs Gastelum Live

Weidman vs Gastelum Live

Chris Weidman begins the long road back to relevancy on Saturday in Long Island. The Ultimate Fighting Championship heads back to New York for UFC on Fox 25 on Saturday live from NYCB Live, Home of the Nassau Veteran’s Memorial Coliseum.

New York native and former UFC middleweight champion Chris Weidman is in a must-win bout in the main event against former Ultimate Fighter winner Kelvin Gastelum.

UFC Fight Night: Weidman vs Gastelum Live

It’s not quite as jam-packed as the UFC 214 card on July 29, but it could be a filling appetizer as the promotion heads toward its biggest event of the year. Here are the 10 things you should know about UFC on Fox 25.

The event will be the first that the UFC has hosted on Long Island. Team Jones vs. Team Sonnen middleweight winner Kelvin Gastelum. On May 12, the bout was confirmed for UFC 214. Weidman vs Gastelum Live

UFC on Fox Long Island Main Card

Kelvin Gastelum -175, Chris Weidman +145, Middleweight, Dennis Bermudez -210, Darren Elkins +170, Featherweight, Gian Villante -160, Pat Cummins +130, Light heavyweight, Jimmie Rivera -200, Thomas Almeida +160 Bantamweight

Prediction

The key for Weidman will be eliminating mistakes and playing to his strengths. For Weidman, the optics are not great. Obviously. It’s been more than two years since his last win, and he’s suffered back-to-back-to-back knockout losses. Not a good look for anyone, let alone a former champion.

But as far as Weidman is concerned, that’s all it is: A bad look. It’s not a real indication of his place in the division or an indictment on his future.

“If you watch my last three fights, I was winning all of them,” Weidman said. “I feel the same way now as I did when I was on top, as far as pressure and anxiety. I’ve had a couple bad nights. That doesn’t dictate who I am.

“It’s not like I’ve been getting blown out, where these guys are just on a different level than me. If anything, you could swing the other way and say I’ve showed that I was on a different level, but the fight ended up working out in their favor.” It certainly is possible to argue Weidman’s skid looks worse on paper than it’s really been.

Attempting to play it safe in MMA is far from a smart strategy and can open the door for opponents to outwork you. But Weidman needs to focus on securing the victory in any form he can, even if that means employing a “lay and pray” strategy to limit Gastelum’s avenues to victory. Watch Weidman vs Gastelum Live Stream.

It’s a key matchup for both of their respective careers. Here’s everything you need to know about Saturday’s main event, via ESPN’s Cheat Sheet.

In total, they will play seven mid week matches on Tuesdays and Wednesdays against all of New Zealand’s Super XV teams – the Blues, Crusaders, Highlands, Chiefs and Hurricanes.

The British & Irish Lions will play 10 matches on their tour of New Zealand – including three Test matches against the All Blacks. On their first tour to New Zealand since 2005, the next generation of Lions will begin their tour on Saturday 3 June against a PU Team at the Toll Stadium, Whangarei. Here’s all you need to know about All Blacks vs Lions live, including teams, TV channel details, latest odds.

The British and Irish Lions will have the chance to make history on Saturday if they win the decisive third Test against New Zealand at Eden Park, Auckland.The Lions bounced back from an opening defeat to the All Blacks with a 24-21 win last time out, and victory on Saturday would represent their first series win over New Zealand since 1971.

The Lions, who were coached by Warren Gatland to a 2-1 series win over Australia in 2013, will have six games before the first Test against the All Blacks at Eden Park, Auckland on Saturday 24 June. They will then face the Hurricanes before the final two Test matches on Saturday 1 July at the Westpac Stadium, Wellington before a potential series decider back in Auckland on Saturday 8 July.

The Lions will also travel to Dunedin, Christchurch and Hamilton. The kick off times have yet to be confirmed for what is expected to be the most anticipated Lions tour ever.

The Lions have named an unchanged side ahead of the contest on Saturday:
His side will need to put in an even more Herculean effort than the one that beat New Zealand in Wellington last Saturday if they’re to win. ESPN’s Tom Hamilton demonstrated just how hard they worked to prevent their opponents breaching their line: Their efforts prevented New Zealand from scoring a try for the first time in 39 matches, but they still came close to losing.

New Zealand have not lost at Saturday’s venue Eden Park in Auckland, dating back to 1944, and are still the firm favorites. But will Warren Garland’s Lions be able to take the momentum and beat the odds? Here’s all you need to know about their iconic showdown against All Blacks.

The All Blacks had to play for almost an hour with 14 men after Sonny Bill Williams was sent off, and they still led by nine points with 20 minutes remaining. It could have been a different story if Beau den Barrett, who scored seven penalties because of the Lions’ indiscipline, had not also missed three kicks.

Even in defeat the All Blacks looked deserving of their status as the world’s best, and they’ve not lost at Eden Park since 1994. It’s not beyond the Lions to win, as they showed last time out, but doing so will be a phenomenal achievement and require the performance to match.

If they are to beat the All Blacks again, they will need to give away fewer penalties, and they will also need another outstanding performance from Maro Itoje. Rugby journalist Murray Kinsella hailed his work at the lineout and his all-round excellence: A similar outing from the 22-year-old is a must if the Lions are to win, but it’s no guarantee.

Stage 3 will finish in Longwy, where the peloton will tackle the Cote des Religieuses, a short but fierce hill that should weed out the sprinters. On paper, the finish is perfectly suited for the Classics riders, while the contenders for the general classification will also be active.

The 2017 Tour de France will finally cross into the Grand Est region via Luxembourg on Monday, giving the punches a chance at a stage win.That’s made even more so by the weather forecast. If this is the case, then 90-degree turns are going to be less than appealing.

Preview

La Grande Boucle has frequently included a stage like this in the first week of racing for years now, in an attempt to emulate the popularity of the one-day Classics in Belgium and Italy. The handful of short climbs the peloton will face isn’t long enough to do any major damage in the GC, although the contenders can take some time via bonus seconds and if their rivals have a bad day. Tour de France Live Stream

This early in the race, it will be hard for breakaways to gain enough time over a fresh peloton and grab the win. The many contenders for Monday’s stage will only complicate matters, per the Inner Ring:

Tour de France 2017 Live Live Stream

Michael Matthews, Peter Sagan, and Philippe Gilbert are three riders fans will keep a close eye on, especially now Alejandro Valverde has abandoned the race. The Spaniard would have been the clear favorite for Stage 3 thanks to his unique blend of climbing ability and explosive sprinting, but his 2017 Tour lasted just a few kilometers.

Per Movistar’s official Twitter account, Valverde’s injuries as a result of his crash in Stage 1 were serious: World champion Sagan has taken plenty of wins in races similar to this stage, thanks to his excellent sprinting ability. The Slovak is gunning for his sixth straight green jersey and should be able to distance his main rivals on the final climb.

The top contenders for the yellow jersey will likely test each other’s form on Monday, but don’t expect anyone to take too many risks this early in the Tour. You can’t go past Tony Martin on home soil. The more intriguing battle is for the general classification and who will be able to pull the first punch.
