With five victories, Jonathan Byrd had such a productive PGA Tour career that spending any time on the developmental Web.com Tour never crossed his mind. His only stop in the minor leagues was in 2001, so long ago that it then was known as the Buy.com Tour.A year after his playoff victory in the 2011 Tournament of Champions at Kapalua, however, Byrd had wrist surgery. He missed three months to start 2013, and his game and confidence slowly eroded to the point that he was trying to make cuts, make money and keep his job.You stop trying to bring your best and youre trying just to stay out here, and thats no way to play, Byrd said last month at the RSM Classic. The tighter you hang on, the farther you get away from what youre doing.With nothing but past champion status that would offer him limited starts, his best option to regain a full PGA Tour card was to spend a year on the Web.com Tour. That can be a tough pill for someone who had never come close to losing his PGA Tour card before the injury.Byrd, who turns 39 in January, brought with him an attitude that is worth emulating for anyone who winds up in that spot.It was humbling, Byrd said. To go back to the Web was difficult. Theres so many reminders every week that youre not where you want to be. But I tried to embrace it. ... I didnt want to be the grumpy old tour player talking about how great it is on tour and how bad it is out here and how good I used to be. I made friends out there. I enjoyed it. I focused on enjoying the competition.Byrd event turned down a half-dozen exemptions to PGA Tour events last year. He finished 48th on the money list (the top 25 get PGA cards) and he didnt earn one of the 25 additional spots from the four-tournament series at the end of the year.Even so, he was upbeat about his progress. Besides, being around a bunch of kids in their early 20s has helped.Youve got to play good to beat these guys, he said. But what Ive learned from being out here so long is that Ive got what it takes. Guys who have won five times on the PGA Tour, its a short list. Ive got something in there thats good enough. And I still think its good enough.---OH, BROTHER: Jordan Spieth is headed to Rhode Island this week to watch Brown host Maine in college basketball. His younger brother, Steven, is a senior who is averaging 15.4 points a game for the Bears.The former Masters and U.S. Open champion is doing everything he can to prepare, because this apparently involves more than sitting in the stands to cheer on little brother. Spieth suggested that there might be a little contest Thursday morning before the Brown game.Im not sure. He kind of set up something, Spieth said. We might be playing horse, and it might be videoed. At the moment, Im starting my grind in the gym, shooting a thousand shots a day so I dont embarrass myself.Asked if he knew where the public might see this video, Spieth said: Even if I knew, I certainly would not be announcing that. I think its through ESPN. Im not sure.However it turns out, perhaps Steven might consider coming out to Augusta National early for a putting contest.---POWER MEMORIES: Jim Furyk is used to players smashing it by him off the tee. One of the shorter hitters in golf, he still has managed to win 17 times, including the U.S. Open. But there was something about the 2009 Cadillac Championship at Doral that he still remembers clearly.I was paired with Adam Scott and Rory (McIlroy) the first two days, and I was hitting it real short, Furyk said. Im already short anyway, but I had a driver that I was hitting straight but real short. Were playing Doral. You know, Adam and Rory are hitting it 30 (yards) by me all day and Im like, `I need to get a new driver.It got worse. The next day, he was paired with a 23-year-old named Dustin Johnson, who was in his second year on tour. Furyk didnt know anything about him.Hes hitting it like 50 by me, Furyk said. I was like, `Who is this guy? We got paired later in the year at Boston, and he had a good event. Hes always been impressive.By the way, Furyk played that fourth round with a tall Spaniard in a straw hat named Alvaro Quiros, one of longest players on the European Tour.Didnt know anything about him, Furyk said. And hes trying to drive the second green.---MIGUELS MEMORIES: Miguel Tabuena sure had a memorable year for not having won a tournament.The 22-year-old Filipino shot 64-68 at Lake Merced and Olympic to win his sectional qualifier and play in his first U.S. Open. He qualified for the Rio Olympics. He made it to his first World Golf Championships events at the HSBC Champions. He contended alongside Jordan Spieth in Singapore. During back-to-back weeks in Asia, he played with Ernie Els in Malaysia and Dustin Johnson in Shanghai.This is my best year so far, he said.Tabuena was only 4 when the only other Filipino made it to a World Golf Championship -- Frankie Minoza, who lost in the opening round to Nick Price in the inaugural Match Play Championship at La Costa.Hes a living legend back home, someone I look up to, Tabuena said. Hopefully, I can have the half the success hes had in his career. I like where I am now at 22. The sky is the limit if I keep improving.Tabuena, who turned pro when he was 16, certainly got the attention of Johnson in Shanghai.Hes real young, but hes got some game, Johnson said. Hes not a real big guy but he hits it pretty far.---DIVOTS: The Walker Cup will be played in Florida for the first time. The amateur matches are coming to Seminole Golf Club in 2021. The USGA also said the 2025 Walker Cup will be held at Cypress Point Club on the Monterey Peninsula, where it last was played in 1981. Next years matches will be on the North Course at Los Angeles Country Club. ... Seventeen players were outside the top 100 in the world when they won on the PGA Tour this year. ...

Hideki Matsuyama (No. 6) had the most with five victories worldwide. ... Thongchai Jaidee is playing an Asian Development Tour event this week in Thailand, needing a victory to get into the top 50 and assure a spot at the Masters next year.---STAT OF THE WEEK: Only two PGA Tour events in 2016 were won by the No. 1 player in the world -- Jordan Spieth at the Tournament of Champions and Jason Day at The Players Championship.---FINAL WORD: Thats a very, very difficult hole that he made look very, very easy. -- Jordan Spieth on Dustin Johnsons birdie on the 18th hole at Oakmont. Tigers Jerseys 2020 .com) - The Edmonton Oilers and Vancouver Canucks both take aim at their first wins of the season on Saturday, as the Canucks open their home slate at Rogers Arena. Detroit Tigers Store . After a lengthy wait, persistent rain finally forced the postponement of the Nationals game against the Miami Marlins on Saturday night. The teams, and a few thousand fans, waited nearly four hours from the 7:05 scheduled start time before an announcement was made shortly before 11 p. https://www.cheaptigers.com/ . -- Vincent Lecavalier got everything but the desired result in his return to Tampa Bay. Detroit Tigers Pro Shop . Varlamov made 33 saves and Ryan OReilly had a goal and scored in the shootout as the Avalanche beat the New Jersey Devils 2-1 on Thursday night. Detroit Tigers Shirts . Bjorn, who had a 36-hole total of 8-under 134, made a testing six-foot putt to save par on the 16th and a birdie on the 17th before bogeying the final hole after a misjudged approach shot. American Kevin Streelman was in second place after shooting a 69. Its been nice, hasnt it? All that quiet without Greg Hardy in the NFL. Sure, there have been issues this year, but most havent been accompanied by photos of a woman allegedly battered at the hands of the 6-foot-4 defensive end.?But instead, Hardy is redirecting his athletic career and training to become an MMA fighter, he told MMAFighting.com Tuesday.?Its a desperate attempt to stay relevant after the NFL put his football career on hold. Hardy was a toxic presence on the Cowboys and, before that, on the Panthers. In May 2014, he was arrested on charges of assault and communicating threats, and a North Carolina judge found him guilty in a bench trial. He asked for a jury trial instead, and when the alleged victim declined to cooperate and prosecutors dropped charges instead of proceeding, he was cleared of all wrongdoing.?While the NFL was investigating the alleged incident, he missed all but one game with the Panthers. After the investigation, the league initially suspended him for 10 games, but then reduced that punishment to four games, and Hardy made his return to the football field with the Cowboys in Week 4 of the 2015 season. But he fought and feuded with coaches and teammates on the sideline.?And last month, he was arrested after a traffic stop and search turned up cocaine in his wallet. He claims it was planted.?So then it isnt surprising that Hardy, 28, hasnt been picked up by another NFL team and needs a Plan B. (Even if a team did become interested in Hardy, he wouldnt be able to play until the NFLs conduct division investigated the most recent arrest).dddddddddddd And a declaration that he wants to take up MMA gets Hardy some attention.But while it reminds teams that hes an athlete, it also brings forth memories that he was accused of inflicting damage on another person.MMA has dealt with these issues before. Bellator, an MMA promotion company, immediately ejected Jon Koppenhaver, aka War Machine, after seeing the near-lethal injuries onetime girlfriend Christy Mack posted to social media after the 2014 attack.?His decision isnt linked to a particular MMA league, but unfortunately, all Hardy needs is one promoter to see a payday in Hardy and stoke his violent image and NFL association for a gate and TV package.Its the worst kind of sports story, wrenching one last spotlight from the yawn of troubled irrelevance. It almost doesnt matter if he can fight -- hell be big and imposing, and its perhaps even better for the fans if he gets pummeled.But let me offer Hardy some free advice. The part of your personality thats geared toward violence? That shouldnt be the part you try to cultivate. And those parties where, as you said in your defense, someone puts a bag of cocaine in your wallet as youre passing it around? You should probably avoid those as well.Hardys opportunity has so far come to a dead end in the NFL, but he has a long life ahead of him. He could make some different choices that might help set him on a better path instead of stoking the worst of his impulses. ' ' '
