The former U.S. Open champion and Antworten

PARAMUS, N.J. -- Graeme McDowell wasnt kidding when he said he had a lot on his mind at The Barclays. The former U.S. Open champion and Ryder Cup star announced Sunday evening that he was leaving Horizon Sports Management at the end of the year and will start managing his own business affairs. McDowell said Ireland-based Horizon "surpassed my highest expectations" in his seven years with the management company. "I am at a stage in my life where it feels right to move on to the next phase of my career, both in golf and business," McDowell said in a statement. "Im now involved with a growing number of exciting business ventures, many of which Horizon helped me establish, and as the landscape evolves so must I." McDowell closed with a 72 on Sunday and tied for 38th at The Barclays. He headed home to Orlando, Florida, where his wife was to give birth to their first child Monday morning. He is taking next week off during the FedEx Cup playoffs. "Ive had a lot on my mind this week," he said when he finished his round. "I dont think mentally I was ready for this tournament." He said he would get choked up if he kept talking about the impending birth of his daughter, and just at that moment, a baby began crying. "Thats how Ill be tomorrow morning," McDowell said. The 35-year-old from Northern Ireland holds the ninth and final spot for Europes Ryder Cup team with one week remaining to qualify. Stephen Gallacher of Scotland could pass him with a two-way tie for second in the Italian Open this week. If that happens, McDowell is likely to be a captains pick, though he would prefer to make the team. "I hope Stephen goes and does the job," McDowell said. "Hes had a great year. The Ryder Cup being in Scotland, I wouldnt begrudge him a spot on the team." The departure from Horizon was amicable, though there were no indications that McDowell was about to handle his own affairs. Rory McIlroy left Horizon a year ago in a split that has turned into a battle over fees and is still to be resolved in an Irish court early next year. McDowell praised Conor Ridge, the CEO of Horizon, and said they would remain close. "We wish Graeme well for the rest of his golf career and in his future commercial ventures," Ridge said. "His innate business acumen will serve him well as he manages his own affairs in the years ahead."

Comprar Salomon Baratas .com) - There may be a debate in Philadelphia about who should be the starting quarterback of the Eagles.ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Despite their inability to get a hit with runners in scoring position, the Los Angeles Angels managed to scrape together enough runs to get Jered Weaver a well-earned victory. Kole Calhoun drew a bases-loaded walk from reliever Brian Matusz in the eighth inning after a tying RBI double by Erick Aybar, and the Angels pulled out a 3-2 win over the Baltimore Orioles on Wednesday night. "Koles developed into a player thats very comfortable in the batters box against righties or lefties, and hes going to give you that tough at-bat," manager Mike Scioscia said. "Hes going to grind it out every which way, no matter what the situation is. He did a good job with the bases loaded. If he got a pitch in the zone, youre confident hes going to put a good swing on it. He didnt get one this time and took his walk. That was a great at-bat." The Angels, who came in leading the majors in runs scored, stranded two runners in scoring position in the first, fifth and sixth innings. The Angels were 0 for 12 in those situations Wednesday, and 3 for 25 during the three-game series. Weaver (11-6) allowed two runs and six hits through eight innings, striking out six and walking none before the Angels recorded their major league-best 31st come-from-behind win. The right-hander won his fourth straight decision. "My fastball command has been pretty good the last couple of games, and I feel like Im getting stronger every time out," Weaver said. "So I just want to keep working on it and keep establishing it because it sets up everything else. It was nice to keep us in it, limit the pitch count early and get deep in the game. Then the offence took care of the rest later on." Orioles right-hander Chris Tillman allowed a run and five hits over six innings, stranded seven runners in scoring position and picked off another at second base before handing a 2-1 lead to Tommy Hunter. Josh Hamilton led off the eighth with a bloop single off Hunter (2-2) and came all the way around on Aybars double to left-centre. A two-out intentional walk to Efren Navarro and another walk to Chris Iannetta loaded the bases for Calhoun, who walked on a 3-1 pitch. "I dont think it really got away from me. I thought I pitched pretty well," Hunter said. "I didnt feel like I was juust missing.dddddddddddd I felt like I was making pretty quality pitches and they just didnt swing at them. They got a hit and a couple of walks. Thats the way the story unfolded tonight." Huston Street pitched a hitless ninth for his first save since joining the Angels last Friday in a trade with the San Diego Padres. Baltimore took a 2-1 lead in the sixth when David Lough singled with two outs, stole second and scored on Adam Jones flare to short right field. Eight of the Orioles 10 runs in the series came with two outs. Ryan Flaherty, starting at third base for the second straight game because of Manny Machados stiff back, made a diving backhanded stop of Mike Trouts first-inning grounder behind the bag but couldnt get the throw to first in time. Trout scored on Albert Pujols single high off the 18-foot wall in right-centre. "Thats a do-or-die play with him," Flaherty said of Trouts infield hit. "When he hits a ball like that youve got to hope he trips in order to get him out." Pujols RBI was his 31st in his last 34 games and 66th this season. The three-time NL MVP had at least 100 RBIs in 10 of his first 11 big league seasons. The only exception was 2011, when he had 99. "Alberts important to us. We dont need him to carry us, but we need him to do what hes capable of. And were seeing it," Scioscia said. "Alberts last 50 at-bats, I think youre able to see that hes been able to use the whole field and hes finding that swing. Tonight he drove the ball to right-centre to score Mike and then hit a double down the line." The Orioles tied it in the third on a two-out RBI single by Nick Markakis after Flaherty hit a ground-rule double and tagged up on Nick Hundleys fly ball. NOTES: Pujols cousin, former major league catcher and coach Luis Pujols, currently manages the Orioles Single-A Carolina League farm club in Frederick, Maryland. ... Tillmans 32 victories since July 4, 2012 are the second-most in the majors behind reigning AL Cy Young Award winner Max Scherzer whom the Angels are scheduled to face Thursday night in the opener of a four-game series with Detroit. ... The Angels placed OF Grant Green on the 15-day DL, retroactive to July 21, because of a back strain and recalled 1B/OF C.J. Cron from Triple-A Salt Lake. ' ' '
