ST. Patrick Robinson Jersey. SIMONS ISLAND, Ga. - The McGladrey Classic will be the fourth PGA Tour event next year to use multiple courses, and the first that is not in California.Its all about timing and opportunity.The McGladrey Classic will be the last official event in 2015, taking the spot now held by Mexico. But once daylight saving time arrives at the end of October, its a scramble for even a 132-man field to finish.The plan is to use the Seaside and Plantation courses at Sea Island Golf Club. Not only will using both courses allow the rounds to finish with plenty of daylight, the field can be expanded to 156 players at a time when Web.com Tour graduates are trying to get spots. Davis Love III, the tournament host, also expects a stronger field because it will not be the week before or after the Asian swing.Some guys like it, some guys dont, Love said of the multiple courses. But if we get a better field — 10 guys better because its the last one of the year, and no conflicts going to Malaysia — then you lose 12 spots when you go down to 132 players. We want to play two (courses) so we can get as many guys in as we can.The one drawback could be the weather. It can get chilly the week before Thanksgiving, especially along the water.The McGladrey has never had the same date in its five years. Love would like to go first, though that spot is held down by the Frys.com Open. If nothing else, its critical that it not be the same weekend as the Georgia-Florida game. St. Simons Island is the home base of Georgia fans the week of the game.___MONEY LIST: The PGA Tour was ready to base all its criteria on the FedEx Cup points after making it through the first wraparound season. That was until the four players on the PGA Tour policy board stepped in on behalf of the money list.As a result, players can still keep their card by finishing in the top 125 money list this year — and maybe for following years.One of the four player-directors — Paul Goydos — made one interesting distinction in his request. Instead of the board voting each year whether to keep the money list to determine who keeps their cards, the board would have to take action to remove it.So far, it hasnt made much of a difference.Nicholas Thompson, Mike Weir, Jim Renner and Charlie Beljan kept their cards for the 2014-15 season by finishing in the top 125 on the money list. A year ago, four players who didnt make the FedEx Cup playoffs also kept their cards.___CADDIE CAROUSEL: Chris Kirk will use three caddies in his next five tournaments, and thats by design.In an era when players tend to stick with one caddie until the relationship gets stale, Kirk likes to bounce around. Laddie Cline was with him at Sea Island and will be on the bag for the BMW Masters and HSBC Champions in Shanghai. G.W. Cable, who normally caddies for Heath Slocum, will work for Kirk at the Hero World Challenge and the Franklin Templeton Shootout in Florida.Bill Harke, with whom Kirk won twice last year, will rejoin him at Kapalua.Harke is kind of my caddie now, but he takes breaks, Kirk said. Thats just how I like to do it. It keeps the conversation fresh, helps me relax and play well. Its taken me years to get the formula just right.___CINKS COMPANY: Stewart Cink hasnt won a tournament in more than five years dating to his British Open title at Turnberry. But he hasnt lost perspective on a game that takes far more than it gives.You know what you can do, he said. And when youre continually not doing it, its easy to get down on yourself. But youve got to realize youre not the only one who has a rough day or a rough hole. A lot of times you can feel like an island out there.That led to a query — is it better to spend time around those who are struggling or those who are succeeding.Its dangerously easy to hang out with the strugglers, he said. You want to commiserate, but its easy to spiral. There are plenty of guys out here who will tell you about struggles. You want names? Everybody whos ever started in a PGA Tour event.Cink has gone 30 straight events since his last top 10 — the AT&T National in 2013 — though he doesnt lack of motivation. And while he finished just outside the top 30 in his two starts this year, he is seeing enough good signs. He opened with a 64 in Las Vegas and shot a 63 in the third round at Sea Island.When you see good scores come out early in the season, it leads to a confident attitude, he said. You come out with a different set of goals. And Ive always felt if youre making a lot of birdies, its easier to iron out mistakes than to try to make birdies out of nothing.___MILLER & SON: Johnny Miller is stepping out of the broadcast booth and onto the golf course.Miller and his son Andy, who missed the cut in the Frys.com Open earlier this month, will play in the PNC Father-Son Challenge on Dec. 12-14 at The Ritz-Carlton Golf Club in Orlando, Florida. It will be the first time since 2006 that Miller played in the event.Andy Miller played one year on the PGA Tour before going off on a mission.We will play hard, the two-time major champion said. But this will be more to have an enjoyable, relaxing weekend. He is going to have to do most of the work off the tee. I still hit my irons pretty good and Im putting better. The bottom line is it will be a good time to be with Andy and spend some days with him. It will be a lot of fun.___DIVOTS: One Las Vegas bookmaker listed Rory McIlroy as the 5-1 favourite to win the Masters, followed by Tiger Woods (12-1) and Adam Scott (15-1). Defending champion Bubba Watson is in the group at 20-1 with Phil Mickelson, Jordan Spieth, Jason Day and Rickie Fowler. ... The European Tour has another tournament in China. The Shenzhen International will be April 16-19, the week after the Masters, at Genzon Golf Club. ... Bob Ford, the head pro at Oakmont and Seminole, will start hosting a monthly radio show in January on SiriusXM PGA Tour radio that concentrates on competitive amateurs.___STAT OF THE WEEK: Zach Johnson is the only player from the top 25 in the world ranking who has not competed outside the United States in the past five years except for the British Open.___FINAL WORD: When your short game is no good, then you cant get it up-and-down. So you cant shoot 70 or 71 on those halfway days and stay in the golf tournament. — Will MacKenzie. LeGarrette Blount Jersey. The former world No. 1 Djokovic, who is the top seed here despite being ranked No. 2, snuck past 35-year-old Czech showman Radek Stepanek in four high- quality sets, 6-4, 6-3, 6-7 (5-7), 7-6 (7-5), on Centre Court. Djokovic appeared relieved when he converted on his first match point by swatting a cross-court forehand winner that just caught the line to end an affair that featured only two service breaks. Rodney McLeod Jersey.com) - The Eastern Conference-leading Toronto Raptors are back in the great white north for a brief moment and will host the Dallas Mavericks Friday night from Air Canada Centre.The Edmonton Oilers will try to build off their first road victory of the season on Sunday night as they visit the New York Rangers and Madison Square Garden. The Oilers lost their first five road contests of the season, going 0-4-1, and dropped the first two of a five-game swing before topping the Buffalo Sabres 3-2 on Friday. Boyd Gordon potted the winning goal in the late stages of the third period. Iiro Pakarinen netted his first career goal and Mark Arcobello lit the lamp as part of a 52-shot showing by Edmonton. Teddy Purcell finished with two assists to help his club halt a four-game slide overall. We were able to respond after their second goal, gave a good push-back and got the win, said Gordon. Viktor Fasth came up with 29 saves for the victory, his first in four starts this season. Edmonton may go back to Ben Scrivens in net tonight and he is 2-1-0 with a 2.00 goals against average and .943 save percentage in three prior meetings with the Rangers. The Oilers and Rangers split two meetings a season ago, with each club winninng on the road. Corey Graham Jersey. Edmonton picked up a 2-1 win at MSG on Feb. 6, with Nail Yakupov scoring the game-winner with 1:38 to play and Scrivens making 35 saves. The Rangers were bested 5-4 by the Toronto Maple Leafs last night, the first time in five games they failed to record a point. They had gone 2-0-2 before the road setback. Rick Nash netted his 11th goal of the season in the loss, tied with Anaheims Corey Perry for the NHL lead, and Derek Stepan had an assist in his season debut. He had missed the first 12 games with a broken leg suffered during training camp. Chris Kreider and Mats Zuccarello each had a goal and an assist, Carl Hagelin also scored and Cam Talbot turned aside 26 shots in defeat. We played right into their hands, Zuccarello said. We have to get into lanes and back each other up. With Talbot having gotten the start last night, Henrik Lundqvist will return to net for this contest. Lundqvist, though, is just 1-1-2 in four career meetings with the Oilers, posting a 2.53 GAA and .909 save percentage.
