Elliott tied for 6th; in position to advance to Finals

first_imgElliott will be in the final group to tee off on Wednesday at 10:04 on hole No. 1, joining Spencer Ralston of Georgia and Rice’s Mario Carmona. Texas A&M’s Chandler Phillips and Brandon Smith are tied atop the leaderboard, both at 8-under par, while Braden Thornberry of Ole Miss, and Doc Redman and Turk Pettit follow all at 7-under. Elliott, a Texas native from Liberty Hills which is 100 miles from Bryan, is currently the top individual on the leaderboard that’s not associated with one of the top five teams, meaning if he stays ahead of those individuals that are not on one of the top five teams, he’ll become the first Cowboy golfer to advance to play in the NCAA Championships. At 6-under par for the tournament, Elliott is two strokes ahead of Rice’s Mitchell Meissner who is also playing as an individual. The next closest individual not a member of the top five which is currently Texas A&M, Clemson, Baylor, UCLA, and Ole Miss, is Kentucky golfer Chip McDaniel who is 1-under for the tournament. BRYAN, Texas – Blake Elliott had another productive day for the second round of the NCAA Men’s Golf Bryan Regional as the Cowboy junior shot a 4-under par 68 and will head into Wednesday’s final round in a tie for sixth place at 6-under par through 36 holes and just two strokes off the lead. The penalty was a touchy one. The ball moved in its lie and then he hit it, which is a stroke, and because he didn’t replace the lie, he was hit with a second penalty. So instead of getting a birdie 3 on the hole, he scored a bogey 5. Had no penalty been allocated, he would be sitting in a tie for first place on the individual leaderboard. The Aggies and Clemson are in a battle for the top spot – Texas A&M at minus-18 while Clemson is at 17-under par. Baylor is third on the team leaderboard at minus-6, followed by UCLA at even-par and Ole Miss at 3-over. Elliott played near-flawless golf on Tuesday, sinking six birdies and only two bogeys. He was 5-under for the round before he was hit with a two-stroke penalty on the par 4 17th hole to finish with a bogey 5. He rebounded with a par on the final hole to close with a 68. Elliott is tied with Baylor’s Cooper Dossey at minus-6.last_img read more

Waiting for Carrasco

Faced with the absolute breakdown of the negotiations for Cavani, Carrasco was the final red-and-white option as he was a footballer capable of playing across the attack front, not just up front. Since last summer, Cholo has insisted on one thing: goals. That is what, for the coach, the campus has lacked since its construction. The parties proved him right. In the Champions League, he qualified for the quarterfinals after alighting the current European champion, Liverpool of Klopp that before measuring the rojiblancos seemed impossible, In the league he is currently sixth, with the lack of goals and draws like a stone in the foot.

Forever three moments: his match at the Camp Nou where Simeone first placed him as a striker and shone, all the compliments comparing him to Maradona, his three goals against Granada at 7-1 and his goal in the Champions League final in Milan.
