Although not a native Arizonan, Rosie Jones might’ve had an important hometown advantage of sorts in Sunday’s final round of the inaugural Walgreens Charity Classic at Grandview Golf course in Sun City West, part of the 45-and-older LPGA Legends Tour.
Walgreens Charity Classic – April 28-29, 2012
Jones, who tied for the best round of the day with a 4-under 68 and overall shot 5-under to win by 2 strokes in the two-day tournament, was born in California and lives in Georgia but said returning to the Valley is always special for her.
“My dad lived in this area for many years while he was alive, and I came up here quite a few times with him and played golf,” she said. “A lot of these folks around here were his friends, and I felt like they were rooting for me and he was up there rooting for me too.”
Jones had to emerge from a crowded leaderboard to win her fifth Legends Tour event after 13 victories on the LPGA Tour. at one point Sunday, five golfers were tied for the lead at 4 under while at different stretches of the back nine.
Jones used her only birdie of the back nine on no. 14 to separate herself and eventually take the tournament after storming to the top with three consecutive birdies on Holes 6-8.
She took home $30,000 for the win.
“When I got out to the 14th green, I saw that there were a bunch of us at 4 under,” she said. “I happened to have a 15- or 18-footer (putt for birdie), so I made that one and felt like I had a little bit of breathing room.”
Elaine Crosby finished second with a 3-under 141, and Liselotte Neumann and Jan Stephenson tied for third, 3 strokes back of Jones.
Allison Finney, Saturday’s first-round leader after posting a 3-under 69, went 7 over on the front nine Sunday to take herself out of contention. She finished the tournament tied for 24th at 5 over.
With the Legends Tour looking to expand and gain recognition in its 12th season, the weekend’s event was an encouraging sign. Tournament officials estimated an attendance of 6,000-8,000 over the two days of competition, with all proceeds benefiting the Phoenix Children’s Hospital.
Valley resident Betsy King, who finished the tournament in a tie for 15th place at 3-over, said the future is bright for both the Legends Tour as well as golf in Arizona in general.
“Considering the economy, I think we’re doing pretty well,” King said. “This is such a big golf area, and I think they’re going to come back again.
“I know the players enjoy coming here, and it’s a good market for the LPGA.”

Chris Paul begged coach Vinny Del Negro to put him back into the game for the fourth quarter and not give up despite being down 21 points.
The result was another Clippers comeback — one of the greatest in NBA playoff history.
Paul hit a pair of free throws with 23.7 seconds left, and the Clippers rallied from a deficit that had been as much as 27 to stun the Memphis Grizzlies 99-98 Sunday night in the opening game of their Western Conference series.
The key, Paul said, is to keep believing.
“Unfortunately, that’s how we play,” he said. “We get killed in the first three quarters and in the fourth quarter we like to try to stand up for ourselves, and we found a way to win tonight.”
The Clippers tied the NBA playoff record for largest deficit overcome at the end of three quarters, when they trailed by 21.
“I don’t think I’ve been part of a game like that ever,” Clippers forward Blake Griffin said. “It was unbelievable.”
Rudy Gay missed a 15-footer with 0.9 seconds left after the Grizzlies squandered a lead they held for the first 47 minutes, with a 24-point cushion disappearing in about nine minutes.
“Obviously, we gave it away, and everybody’s kind of down,” Gay said. “We’re still into it. It’s a long series, and we’re ready to fight. That’s all this means. We’ve got to fight hard.”
The Clippers lost Caron Butler to a broken left hand, and he said he thinks he caught his hand in Gay’s jersey on a screen. Del Negro said other players will have to step up.
Nick Young did just that, scoring 19 points off the bench with three 3-pointers in the midst of the Clippers’ 26-1 run. Paul finished with 14 points while playing a team-high 38 minutes despite a groin injury that kept him out of the regular season finale against the Knicks. Griffin had 17 and Butler 12 before leaving the game.
Young said he didn’t even see the score, being on the court down the stretch for a change. He said he looked up late and saw they had a game when he started hitting his shots.
“It’s crazy. It’s a blessing,” Young said. “It shows how hard we fought. How we rallied together as a team, and just made stops down the end.”
Gay finished with 19 for Memphis. Mike Conley and O.J. Mayo had 17, and Marc Gasol scored 14.
Game 2 is Wednesday night.
The Clippers outscored the Grizzlies 35-13 in the fourth quarter, the most points in the final period by a Memphis opponent this season. Los Angeles also hit 13 of 17 from the floor, including 5 of 6 beyond the arc after hitting only one the first three quarters.
The Grizzlies looked ready to roll as they ran out to a 20-point lead in the first quarter and were up by 27 twice in the third, the last on a pair of free throws by Mayo with 1:34 left.
The Clippers finally got going in the fourth, as the Grizzlies looked like they shut it down way too soon. They had five turnovers in the fourth. Even though the Clippers had seven themselves, the Grizzlies looked lost as they just lost the ball going into the lane or put up shots that had no chance of going in.
“We just got careless,” Memphis coach Lionel Hollins said. “We just lost a little bit of our discipline from a defensive perspective. But offensively, we just started walking it up and trying to throw it into the post instead of running it in. we ran earlier. we attacked. we were in transition earlier. we just stopped doing that and got conservative and it cost us.”
New on the market: Bubba’s pink driver.
The scoop: Ping announced it will sell 5,000 limited-edition all-pink Ping G20 drivers, inspired by the one used by Masters champion Bubba Watson, and donate 5 percent of the proceeds to its fundraising campaign, “Bubba Long in Pink. Driven by PING.”
The drivers will have a bright pink shaft and clubhead featuring the same technology that has earned the G20 high marks for its performance from golfers of all abilities. The pink G20s are offered in 9.5-, 10.5-, and 12-degree lofts for right-handed players; 10.5-degree for left-handed. there is also a version geared for women with 12-degree loft and a Ladies flex shaft. All come with a matching pink headcover and a power-promoting high-balance-point TFC 169D shaft labeled, “Bubba Long in Pink. Driven by PING. Limited Edition 2012.”
“Even prior to his win at the Masters, golfers were requesting pink G20s. We want to satisfy that demand while bringing even more visibility to Bubba’s goal of raising $1 million,” said John a. Solheim, Ping Chairman & CEO.
What it costs: The bright-pink G20 drivers will be available June 1. MSRP is $430.
MARSHALL – Temperatures in the 70s. Clear skies. Just slight breeze.
Low scores were there for the taking during Marshall’s dual with Luverne on Tuesday at Marshall Golf Club. and the Tigers took them.
The Marshall boys golf team broke the school’s nine-hole record for its home course, firing a 2-under total of 142 to beat Luverne by 11 shots. the Tigers’ score was two strokes clear of the previous school record, which had been matched multiple times.
The Tiger girls team also had a strong day with three golfers shooting 45 or lower. Marshall finished with a team score of 184, 11 strokes better than Luverne.
Even with a double-bogey on his second hole of the day (the par-3 4th), Marshall senior Max Deutz went lower than anyone Tuesday, racking up four birdies and earning medalist honors with a 2-under round of 34. Deutz was one of eight Marshall boys to shoot in the 30s, a feat Marshall boys’ head coach Allen Lucht said he’s never seen before.
Over the weekend, the Tiger boys had to brave a squall during the last few holes on the final day of a two-day tournament at the Ridges at Sand Creek in Jordan. Marshall, last year’s runner-up at the Class AA state tournament, finished 13 strokes behind defending state champion Detroit Lakes at the weekend tournament, something Deutz said didn’t sit well with the team. when the Tigers got to Marshall Golf Club for Tuesday’s dual, Deutz said he and his teammates were ready to tear up the course.
“(The weather) can’t get any better. It’s 10 out of 10 conditions. Just ideal,” Deutz said. “Everyone came out and was ready to play. we didn’t have a great weekend in Jordan and I think everyone was just anxious to get back home and get back to shooting scores we know we can shoot.
“The guys got a little vengeance today. I don’t think this is the best we can shoot, either. I know we can still move uphill from here.”
Marshall sophomore Brent Haukom joined Deutz below par with a 1-under round of 35. Senior Marcus Holmberg added a 36, while sophomore Matt Bennett shot a 37 to round out the Tigers’ varsity team total. Other Marshall golfers to shoot in the 30s Tuesday were varsity members Matt Christianson (38) and Bo Erickson (39), and junior varsity golfers Alex Buysse (38) and Jacob Baker (39).
Lucht wasn’t happy with how the Tigers performed over the weekend in Jordan, so he worked with his golfers in a long practice session on Monday. he was more than happy with what he saw on Tuesday.
“You can see the hard work paid off,” Lucht said. “They came together today as a team and were all kind of rooting for each other. It was cool to watch.
“What I’ve always said is if you don’t have a team of at least six players, you don’t have a chance to do well at sections or anything like that. if you take a look at what we’ve done as a team, we’re going to have the last couple spots fought over until the last minute because they’re all so close.”
Because of the Tigers’ team effort, Deutz, the 2011 Class AA individual medalist, got to cross off something else on his list of goals now that he’s helped his squad break the school record.
“This is a huge accomplishment,” said Deutz, who birdied the par-5 1st and 2nd holes, his final two holes of the day. “The last couple years we’ve tied the record twice. We’ve always been trying to get it. Today, everyone just kind of had a good feeling and we got it finally.
“… It helps when you’re on your own course where you feel so comfortable and you know all the shots. we still have to improve our game away from Marshall, a lot.”
Although they didn’t break any records, there were a lot of smiles around the clubhouse from the Marshall girls, too.
Freshman Jessica Blanchard earned medalist honors Tuesday with her score of 44, which she said is her lowest nine-hole round in competition this season. She said she has been working on distance with her shots, but it was her short stick that helped her go low during Tuesday’s dual.
“I was putting well, that was the thing going best for me,” she said. “And I was hitting my woods pretty well, too.”
Junior Allie Pogatchinik and freshman Hanna Peterson were also in the 40s for Marshall, each posting a 45. Sophomore Kirsten Webskowski tallied a 50 to round out the team’s top four. Counting varsity and junior varsity golfers, Marshall had seven girls under 55 on Tuesday, something Marshall girls’ head coach Nancy Blanchard said she was happy to see.
Blanchard has been pushing for her team to get four rounds in the 40s, and the Tigers are almost there. She was pleased with how her golfers capitalized on ideal scoring conditions Tuesday, but said she knows they still have lower rounds in them.
“We don’t get very many days like this with very little wind and nice, warm weather,” she said. “They played well and you can’t fault them too much. a lot of them, that’s their best nine-hole score this year.
“There are shots out there yet. They’re still not where they could be on a day like today. they all had some shots they’d like to take back, but all in all, it was a very good day for us.”
The Luverne boys team was led by junior Matthew Sterrett, who fired an even-par round of 36. Kirsten Olson led the Cardinal girls with a 47.
The Marshall golf teams resume Southwest Conference dual action at home on Friday against Pipestone Area.

Answer by Wellington JonesThe Heat is a young team for the future,right now Wade is all they have.
Answer by Anthony E. M.Wellington I hate the Heat w. every fiber in my body cause I am a Knicks fan that saw that rivalry art its most head, but D.Wade is not all they have. JO has proved to be Miami’s only consistant player this series not D.Wade and James Jones has come up big not only in this playoff, but in Phoenix, and Haslem has always been a solid player. they have good players and need to know how to fit them together.
Atlanta will dig their talons in them though. Atlanta is a very good team and they are stopping D.Wade proving there is no such player in the NBA impervious to great defense and the Hawks have Bibby who is up there w. Billups as the best performer at their position in the playoffs of the last decade. The team is athletic and playing off their near success against Boston a year ago.

Answer by wayfaroutthereThat’s the thing with golf. It’s just a guy hitting a ball at a target without anyone trying to stop him, yet it needs nothing else to make it more exciting–there is plenty of excitement at most tournaments.
But if you were looking for crazy ideas, I like the extra-long rough from the US Open–it makes missing the fairway a serious penalty. I also think that a side event of speed golf (take as many strokes as you like, but get from the tee to the bottom of the hole in the shortest time possible) would be an interesting variation to see once a year, unless that turns into solo field hockey.
Baltimore — – Brandon Inge, an All-Star third baseman in 2009, has agreed to sign with Oakland days after receiving his unconditional release from the Tigers. he is expected to join the A’s in Boston on Monday.
The A’s made no announcement Sunday, but two sources confirmed that once the usual formalities are concluded (paperwork, physical), Inge will be cleared to play Monday evening.
Inge, who will be 35 next month, hit 21 homers in the first half in 2009, but his numbers have tailed off since then. he was 2-for-20 with one homer and two RBIs with Detroit this season.
The A’s found their answer at third base with the Tigers last year, trading for second baseman Scott Sizemore and converting him to third with great success. Sizemore tore a knee ligament during the spring and is out for the season; A’s third basemen are batting a league-low .122 with two homers and six RBIs, plus a league-high eight errors.
Luke Hughes, 1-for-13 since the A’s claimed him on waivers April 22, is likely to be designated for assignment to make room for Inge on the roster.
One A’s player who knows Inge said that he will fit into the clubhouse well and could be a “Mark Ellis-type” influence on younger players.
Reddick’s return: When Josh Reddick was traded to the A’s during the offseason, many Boston fans took to Twitter to express their sadness because the young outfielder had become a Fenway favorite.
This past week, with Reddick about to return to Boston on Monday, he said, “I’m getting blown up on Twitter. People are saying, ‘Get ready for a standing ovation!’ “
Reddick loved playing in front of the Boston fans.
“It was great,” he said. “It’s sold out every night, and you’re on the same field that Ted Williams, Babe Ruth played on, in the same batter’s box. It was always a blast.”
Initially upset to leave Boston, Reddick is happy in his new uniform, especially because he is playing every day. “I feel fine with where I’m at right now,” he said. “It’s all about the opportunity, and I’m getting that here.”
