Tapos kailangan lang naming sundin yung sistema ni coach, yung pina-practice namin kailangan i-apply sa game,” he said.(We have to all be healthy. We have to follow coach’s system, and the things we practice, we have to apply to the games.)ADVERTISEMENT Though Fajardo still normed his usual stats against the Elite with 25 points, eight rebounds, and two blocks in the game, what was more impressive was his season-high five assists as he admits putting a more conscious effort in finding his open teammates on the floor.“Nagdo-double yung tao ni Arwind (Santos) or yung tao ni Alex (Cabagnot) sa akin so nababakante sila (Arwind and Alex’s man has been doubling me so they are getting the open looks),” he said.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSEnd of his agony?

I like to feel like I’m always on it, I’m always … ready to go and trying to compete and I want to get back to that stage, but sometimes it’s very, very difficult.”Day also is scheduled to participate in the Zurich Classic, which runs from April 27-30 and has changed to an unusual format featuring 80 two-player teams, with player picking their own partners. Teams will alternate shots in the first and third rounds and play best ball in the second and final rounds.Day joked that he was enthusiastic about the new format as soon as Rickie Fowler agreed to be his teammate.

We’ve got to somehow be able to keep it traditional but also add some format play that makes it interesting and makes people want to watch the PGA Tour on a regular basis,” Day said. “This is kind of the first step in a direction that potentially could change the way we look at traditional stroke-play events.”The pairing of Day and Fowler will make them favorites at the par-72 TPC Louisiana outside New Orleans. Other teams of note include Justin Rose with Henrik Stenson; Branden Grace with fellow South African Louis Oosthuizen; Bubba Watson with J.B.

Buzz Nightmare to end eight-month hiatus

first_img After winning the Gold Cup, turning back Horse of the Year SEEKING MY DREAM, from whom he had received 16lb, BUZZ NIGHTMARE seemed ready to rule the world with what appeared to be a formality in November’s Caribbean Sprint. However, a combination of joint topweight 57.0 kilos and, possibly, his old bleeding problems returning to haunt him, resulting in a shock loss to stablemate CAMPESINO at 1200 metres. Brought back a month later for the Diamond Mile, an auspicious attempt with 121lb, BUZZ NIGHTMARE disputed the lead to the home turn, but had nothing in the tank when SEEKING MY DREAM pounced at his pet trip. However, the brave speedster was still third by four lengths at the furlong pole, having 13 horses behind him, before weakening into 11th place. A horse who relishes running fresh, BUZZ NIGHTMARE has been working like the grade-one animal he is renowned to be, blazing a flat 59.4 on the round earlier this month before winding down with separate half-mile (47.0) and three-furlong gallops out the straight in the last two weeks. At 1100 metres, BUZZ NIGHTMARE should be floating like a butterfly down the backstretch and stinging like a bee in the straight when asked to run by veteran jockey Ian Spence. Even with the weights against him, he is down a class from his natural level, grade one, a rating which doesn’t disappear after eight months off. Horse of the year GOLD Cup winner BUZZ NIGHTMARE returns from a near eight-month lay-up in this afternoon’s 1100-metre Betting Gaming and Lotteries Commission trophy, reporting down in class among open-allowance rivals. The speedy five-year-old h races for the first time since December’s Diamond Mile, which he led for six furlongs before defending champion SEEKING MY DREAM pounced to make it two in a row with a scintillating five-length win. With a resume which includes five straight wins last year – an overnight allowance, two open allowances and two grade-one victories, his last being in October’s Gold Cup, beating SEEKING MY DREAM into fifth place – BUZZ NIGHTMARE naturally comes into the BGLC Trophy with topweight 57.0 kilos. BUZZ NIGHTMARE’s rivals include race-fit runners such as United States-bred CHOO CHOO BLUE, ANOTHER BULLET, MR BUDGET and CHACE THE GREAT, but none with the class of the Philip Feanny-trained speed demon.last_img read more
