AUGUSTA, Ga. — A victory at the 2024 Masters seemed inevitable for Scottie Scheffler.

The Texan has been ranked No. 1 in the world for more than 80 weeks during his short career. He’d won eight times on the PGA Tour since February 2022, a stretch that saw him become the first golfer ever to win the Players Championship in back-to-back years.

Scheffler is regarded as perhaps golf’s best ballstriker since Tiger Woods in his prime, and Scheffler’s magical hands around the greens also have drawn comparison to you-know-who.

Until Sunday, Scheffler had only one major championship victory, the 2022 Masters, which might have been the only reason anyone would doubt his status as the game’s next generational star.

After entering Sunday’s final round of the 88th Masters at Augusta National Golf Club in a three-way tie for the lead, Scheffler ran away from the other contenders on the second nine to win a second green jacket in three years.

Scheffler carded a 4-under 68 over the final 18 holes to beat Sweden’s Ludvig Aberg by 4 strokes. Aberg, who was an amateur at Texas Tech a year ago, was attempting to become the first golfer to win the Masters in his debut since Fuzzy Zoeller in 1979. Aberg posted a 3-under 69 in the final round.

Max Homa, Collin Morikawa and Tommy Fleetwood tied for third at 4 under.

“I did my best to stay calm out there,” Scheffler said from Butler Cabin before 2023 champion Jon Rahm gave him the green jacket. “I did my best to stay patient on the course. And I was able to make some key shots and key putts today to keep my round going.

“Ludvig played great today. He made a move on me on the back nine, and I was fortunate to hold him off there toward the end.”

At 27, Scheffler became the fourth-youngest golfer to win multiple green jackets; only Jack Nicklaus (25 years, 81 days), Woods (25 years, 100 days) and Seve Ballesteros (26 years, 2 days) were younger.

Scheffler claimed his second Masters title in only his fifth start at Augusta National, which is the second-fewest starts needed to accomplish the feat in the tournament’s history. Horton Smith won two of the first three Masters, in 1934 and 1936.

Scheffler also became only the fifth golfer in Masters history to win multiple green jackets by 3 strokes or more, joining Woods (1997 and 2002), Ballesteros (1980 and 1983), Nicklaus (1965 and 1972) and Sam Snead (1949 and 1952).

“Obviously, Scottie is an unbelievable golf player, and I think we all expect him to be there when it comes down to the last couple holes of a tournament,” Aberg said. “He’s proven it again and again, and I think he makes us better. He makes you want to beat him, obviously, and that’s the same for me and the same for everyone else in this field.”

In the past 35 days, Scheffler has won three times against elite fields at the Arnold Palmer Invitational, the Players and now the Masters.

“It’s just what he’s been doing,” said Xander Schauffele, who finished eighth at 1 under. “It’s been a while since we’ve had a guy out here that tees it up and he’s supposed to win and he wins.”

What is Scheffler doing so well?

“I mean, everything,” Morikawa said. “He drives the ball plenty, plenty long, well past me. Hits his irons obviously spectacular, keeps it simple, makes the putts when he needs to. If he doesn’t, still has plenty of chances, and just never put himself in trouble.”

The final two pairings of Aberg-Homa and Scheffler-Morikawa made their way to Amen Corner (hole Nos. 11 to 13) shortly before 5 p.m. ET. By the time they left, only one of them — Scheffler — still had a prayer to win.

Aberg made the first big mistake when his sweeping shot from 216 yards went too far left and bounced into a pond at the par-4 11th. He made a double-bogey 6 and fell 4 shots behind Scheffler.

A short while later, Morikawa hit his approach shot from nearly the same spot as Aberg. He yelled, “Damn it,” after his ball took flight and watched it bounce into the pond. The result was his second double bogey in three holes — he couldn’t get out of a greenside bunker on No. 9 on his first try — as he fell 5 shots behind Scheffler.

“Greed got the best of me,” Morikawa said. “Nine, can’t miss it over there and can’t leave it in the bunker. Eleven, just tried to hit too perfect of a shot. It’s not like at that point I was trying to press. I knew where I stood. Yeah, it’s just can’t do that.”

Then on the 12th hole, where swirling winds, a narrow green and the intimidating Rae’s Creek have spoiled many Masters hopefuls’ dreams over the years, Homa’s chances took a devastating blow. He didn’t hit a bad tee shot on the shortest par-3 on the course, but his ball leaped high off the sunbaked green and settled in vines on a bank.

After watching his ball bounce hard off the green, Homa asked his caddie, Joe Greiner, “Where did it go?”

After a couple of minutes, Homa found it in the thick ground covering, but he had to take an unplayable lie and a 1-stroke penalty. His chip shot got caught up in the fringe, and he two-putted for a double-bogey 5 to drop to 5 under.

“The honest answer is it didn’t feel fair,” Homa said. “I hit a really good golf shot, and it didn’t feel fair. I’ve seen far worse just roll back down the hill. Yeah, the professional answer is these things happen.”

Scheffler made a bogey of his own at the 11th when he missed the green, chipped to 9 feet and missed a par putt. He played it safely on the 12th and made par.

Scheffler ended any doubts about winning again when he made back-to-back birdies on Nos. 13 and 14. On the par-5 13th, he reached the green in 2 shots and two-putted for a birdie to move to 9 under. Then on the par-4 14th, he spun his approach shot to a foot and tapped in to go to 10 under.

By then, Scheffler’s lead was 3 over Aberg and 5 over Homa and Morikawa.

Scheffler added another birdie on the par-3 16th, and what had seemed inevitable for so long was now reality.

سایت طوفان بت : Why Texans won the trade

Why Texans won the trade

سایت طوفان بت
سایت toofan bet

It’s amazing how quickly a Stefon Diggs trade analysis reveals the state of mind of both the Houston Texans and the Buffalo Bills. While Diggs has some work to do if he wants to be considered among the greatest WRs of all time, he’s been to the Pro Bowl in four straight seasons and is in the prime of his career.

Including free agents, he could end up being one of the best players to change teams this offseason.

Who Won the Stefon Diggs Trade?

As always, only time will tell how this trade will play out. But what side appears to be the winner of the Diggs trade to the Texans?

At first glance, Houston is the obvious winner because they’re acquiring a great wide receiver and a couple of late-round draft picks for a second-round pick that wasn’t even theirs in the first place. However, let’s conduct a deeper Stefon Diggs trade analysis that looks at each team’s perspective.

Why the Texans Won

The obvious reason why the Texans won the trade is that they got a great player. Diggs has gained over 1,000 receiving yards in six straight seasons, averaging just under nine touchdowns per season during that stretch. He’s currently five yards shy of 10,000 career receiving yards and has rarely been hurt during his career. 





However, aside from the obvious, Diggs is a perfect fit for what the Houston offense needs. Coming off their promising 2023 campaign, the Texans are still young offensively. Despite his brilliant rookie season, C.J. Stroud can still benefit from having a veteran wide receiver at his disposal, especially one who’s proven to be as consistent and reliable as Diggs.

Josh Allen was entering his third season in the NFL when the Bills acquired Diggs, so this should be a familiar situation for him, enabling Diggs to help Stroud take another step forward.

On top of the intangibles he brings to the table, the look of Houston’s offense has changed with Diggs in the picture. Rather than Nico Collins being the no. 1 receiver coming off a breakout season, Diggs will take that role, freeing up Collins to face each team’s second-best cornerback. Meanwhile, the Texans still have Tank Dell in the slot with the likes of Robert Woods and John Metchie in the picture as depth. 

The Texans are also in excellent shape at running back with Joe Mixon and Dameon Pierce with Dalton Schultz giving Houston a proven tight end. Having Diggs figures to make all of those players because of the attention he warrants from opposing defenses.

In a way, Diggs adds legitimacy to a team that hopes to compete for the AFC crown next season. He represents a missing piece of the puzzle that makes that goal more realistic as long as Stroud can replicate his performance from last season.





Why the Bills Lost

By trading away Diggs, the Bills’ offseason plans were revealed to the rest of the league – just in case there was any doubt left. Due to their salary cap situation, the Bills have already parted ways with several key players on both sides of the ball. Buffalo will have to lean heavily on Allen and the team’s offensive playmakers in 2024, even more than the Bills have in recent years.

Without Diggs, that set of playmakers has been significantly weakened. Curtis Samuel is currently projected as Buffalo’s top wide receiver. That’s not going to inspire a lot of confidence, especially with questions about other parts of the roster. Any hope of being able to ride Allen to a Super Bowl in 2024 has been greatly diminished with this trade.

In fairness, with or without Diggs, the Bills were going to have a long road to the Super Bowl this season. If trading Diggs can help them get under the cap for the 2025 season and add an early-round draft pick to gear up for a serious run two years from now, this trade may not look so bad. But in the immediate future, the Bills are big losers and the Texans are big winners of this trade.

Arguably the biggest match this Tuesday is a London derby between rivals West Ham and Tottenham at the London Stadium.

Both teams are still in the fight for a spot in Europe next season, with Spurs eyeing a return to the Champions League for the first time under Ange Postecoglou.

The Hammers are hoping to secure their third Premier League double over Tottenham, having done so in the 1998-99 and 2013-14 campaigns.

Current Form

West Ham’s current form

Tottenham’s current form

Spurs have earned a huge 22 points from losing positions in 2023-24, which is three short of a club record in a Premier League season. They achieved the feat at the weekend again as they came back from behind to defeat Luton 2-1, with Heung-min Son scoring in the 86th minute.

Prior to Saturday, Tottenham suffered a surprising 3-0 away defeat at Fulham.

West Ham’s recent form has been up and down as they have won two out of their last five, with none of those wins coming in the last three.

Morale will certainly be downbeat after they surrendered a 3-1 lead to lose 4-3 against Newcastle.

Team News

Alphonse Areola was taken off injured in the loss against Newcastle and he has been ruled out of this one with a groin problem, so Lukasz Fabianski will start in goal. Edson Alvarez remains unavailable due to suspension.

Fraser Forster, Ryan Sessegnon and Manor Solomon are the only Spurs absentees.

Scoreline Prediction

There has been inconsistency from both teams recently but Spurs should have enough to overcome a West Ham side in a likely high-scoring game.

The 54 goals they have conceded in the current campaign is only one fewer than they did in the whole of last season.

West Ham 2-3 Tottenham

For all of the analysis of the match as it happens live, check out our Preview and Live Update page for the game.


What time does the match start? The match kicks off at 20:15 on the 2nd of April, 2024.

What was the score the last time West Ham played Tottenham? At the start of December, West Ham defeated Spurs 2-1 away thanks to goals from Jarrod Bowen and James Ward-Prowse.

What is West Ham’s next match? After Spurs, West Ham face Wolves.

What is Tottenham’s next match? After West Ham, Spurs face Nottingham Forest.

Who is West Ham’s top scorer? Jarrod Bowen has scored 15 Premier League goals this season.

Who is Tottenham’s top scorer? Heung-min Son has scored 15 Premier League goals this season.

سایت طوفان بت : Max Jorgensen mulls Roosters and Waratahs contract offers

سایت طوفان بت
سایت toofan bet

D-Day is fast approaching for NSW Waratahs whiz kid Max Jorgensen as he decides whether to stick with rugby or follow Mark Nawaqanitawase to the Sydney Roosters.

Nine’s Danny Weidler reported that this week would be critical in determining the future of the gun 19-year-old, who comes off contract with Rugby Australia at the end of 2024.

The Roosters have reportedly offered Jorgensen a $1.8 million, two year deal from 2025.

“I think there’s going to be an answer pretty soon,” Weidler told Nine’s 100% Footy.

“He’s meeting his manager, I think it’s this week, to work out whether he’s going to play rugby league. And if he does it will be the Roosters or he’ll stick with rugby union.

“So he’s got a big decision to make and I think decision time could come as early as this week.”

Jorgensen told the Sydney Morning Herald last week that he had not received a contract offer from the Roosters.

The outside back also doubled down on a Wide World of Sports report in February he wanted to play for the Wallabies against the British and Irish Lions in 2025 and at the 2027 Rugby World Cup in Australia before a potential NRL switch.

Jorgensen was picked by Eddie Jones to play at last year’s World Cup but he broke his leg in training before making his Test debut.

“I obviously love the game,” Jorgensen said last month.

“I want to make my mark here, play for the Wallabies and obviously British and Irish Lions comes around every 12 years. So it’d be pretty cool to play in something like that… that’s a dream, playing at a World Cup for the Wallabies and obviously with the British and Irish Lions. If you miss that, you don’t really get another opportunity to do it again.

“That would be awesome.”

The Jorgensen tug of war continues the cross code niggle between the Roosters, Waratahs and Wallabies as new coach Joe Schmidt surveys the competitive landscape.

Joseph Suaalii is joining NSW and RA on a multi-million dollar deal at the end of the season while Wallabies star Nawaqanitawase is going the other way.

Jorgensen’s father, Peter, played for the Wallabies, Roosters and Penrith Panthers.

سایت طوفان بت : Jaylen Brown’s defense on Damian Lillard displays ‘powerful’ Celtics leadership

Jaylen Brown’s defense on Damian Lillard displays ‘powerful’ Celtics leadership

سایت طوفان بت
سایت toofan bet

On Wednesday night, Damian Lillard scored 32 points, shooting 11-of-21 from the field and 6-of-10 from behind the three-point line. He was efficient, and he almost led the Milwaukee Bucks to an impressive comeback over the Boston Celtics.

A box-score glance at his stat line would conclude that he picked the Celtics apart. And in the last few minutes of the contest, he played well.

That doesn’t tell the whole story.

Not seen on the stat sheet is the full-court press Jaylen Brown played against him. The ball denial on inbounds plays. Brown’s chase-down, unrelenting defense hounded Lillard all night.

“I thought Jaylen’s mindset and intensity to start the game was kind of what kept us connected throughout the game,” Joe Mazzulla said. “And he set the tone as far as our defensive intensity for the game. And the rest of the guys picked up on that.”

Brown guarded Milwaukee’s star guard for a team-high 6:16 of game time, yet only four of Lillard’s 21 shots were against him. He shot 2-of-4. One make was directly off a Brook Lopez screen, and the other, Brown got punished for playing too high up in the pick-n-roll and Lillard blew by him.

Instead, Lillard did his best to avoid going up against Brown. He took 15 shots against Al Horford and Kristaps Porzingis combined. The Bucks looked to get him switched onto a big anytime they could.

Lillard’s efficiency was impressive, but in the case of Brown, his importance goes beyond the opponent’s shooting percentage. His eagerness to guard the best players on opposing team sends a strong message to his Celtics brothers.

“It’s powerful. What that does for our team,” said Jayson Tatum. “How much better it makes us. Seeing him take the challenge of guarding the best guard on the team, picking them up full court, [and] chasing him around all night, it has an impact on the rest of the team and really gives everybody else no excuses, right? If he can do that all night while still trying to be effective on the offensive end. It’s nothing short of special.”

Brown spent the entire night finding Lillard in the backcourt after a Celtics bucket and trailing him all the way up the floor. He didn’t give Lillard any space to breathe.

At the beginning of the season, Brown made it his mission to make the All-Defensive First Team. All year long, he’s embraced the challenge of guarding opposing stars every night. It gets him fired up.

Asked about his matchup with Lillard post-game, Brown cracked a smile.

“It’s fun. It’s like a game of chess,” Brown said. “A guy has it going on, they want to be aggressive, they’re going to him every possession. Pick him up, be aggressive. Sometimes you got to be back. It’s good. Always gives you good information.”

With all the new additions Boston made this summer, sacrifice was inevitable. Rather than taking a step back, Brown simply adjusted his focus.

He’s still a top scoring options on the Celtics. Since the All-Star break, he’s been one of the most dominant scorers in the league. But he’s put more effort into the defensive end this year than ever before.

“Our guys are not just defined by one thing, and we understand that, in order to win, we have to play well-connected basketball, and it starts with intensity and physicality,” said Mazzulla. “Jaylen has done a great job of that.”

The Celtics love defense. That breeds winning. And Brown is at the forefront of that charge.

Gareth Southgate gives update on Reece James' Euro 2024 hopes

Gareth Southgate is hopeful that Chelsea right-back Reece James will have a chance to prove his fitness ahead of Euro 2024.

The England boss has refused to rule out James, who has remained out of action since sustaining a hamstring injury against Everton back in December.

After undergoing surgery, James is now in recovery but is yet to return to training with the Blues.

The race against time is now on for the 24-year-old, who hopes to earn his spot in the England squad and travel to Germany in June.

Despite his lack of game time, Southgate is eager to remain hopeful around James. When asked if he was out of contention for the tournament, Southgate said: “No, we don’t have an exact date for him coming back but we would hope he would have some games before the Euros.

“Could he play seven games in the Euros? His record over the last few years would suggest no. But is he a top level player who could provide something important, no question.

“So yeah again he is another one who the first step is get back into training, get back into the team and build that physical resistance as quickly as possible.”

James’ surgeon, Dr Lasse Lempainen, told The Telegraph that he would be back in shape before the European championship. However, club boss Mauricio Pochettino has been reluctant to put a date on his return.

With friendlies on the cards against both Brazil and Belgium, all eyes will now be on Southgate as he looks to cement his final choices ahead of the Euro 2024.

49ers reportedly lose out on LB Eric Kendricks to Cowboys

سایت طوفان بت
سایت toofan bet

The Dallas Cowboys have reportedly agreed to a deal with former Los Angeles Chargers linebacker Eric Kendricks.

The 32-year-old was reported as having agreed to terms with the San Francisco 49ers early Wednesday, but it seems nothing was set in stone.

Kendricks will have a reunion with new Dallas defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer, who was his head coach in Minnesota for his first seven years in the NFL. Kendricks spent nine seasons with the Vikings before playing for the Chargers in 2023.

Linebacker is among the biggest offseason needs for the Cowboys after Leighton Vander Esch was sidelined in 2023 by another neck injury, a possibly career-ending setback this time.

Kendricks was recently released by the Chargers in an effort to free up $6.5 million in salary cap space. He originally signed with the team ahead of the 2023 season on a two-year, $13.25 million contract.

The 6’0, 232-pound defender has topped 100 tackles in each of the past eight seasons to tie for the fourth-longest streak of at least 100 tackles since 2000, according to Sportradar. His 1,036 tackles rank third in the NFL in that span, trailing only Bobby Wagner and Lavonte David.

Kendricks had 117 tackles, seven tackles for loss, 3 1/2 sacks and six passes defensed last season for the Chargers.

Terms of the deal between Kendricks and the Cowboys have not yet been released.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
