Jason Day defended golfs big four after their forecast heavyweight showdown failed to materialise at Royal Troon. Alexei Emelin Jersey .All the hype before the 145th British Open centred on Days bid to keep Dustin Johnson, Jordan Spieth and Rory McIlroy at bay as the superstar quartet jostled for the famous Claret Jug and golfs top ranking.Instead veterans Phil Mickelson and Henrik Stenson have stolen the show with a swag of less-heralded Americans and Europeans playing supporting roles.But Day believes any criticism of the Gen-Y dominators is unfair, citing an unfavourable draw for golfs top four players at Troon.Australias world No.1 even has the numbers to back it up.Every player in the top 10 at the Opens halfway point enjoyed the best of the conditions on Thursday morning and Friday afternoon, while Day, Johnson, Spieth and McIlroy were left to deal with the elements, including a 55kph squall that swept through the links course late in the second round.While Day struggled to a two-over-par 73 in tough early going on Thursday, Mickelson made hay in the afternoon with a major championship record-equalling 63 while third-round leader Stenson opened with 68 and 65.The pair have engaged in a two-man shootout ever since.Day said it was no great coincidence he and his big-name rivals were battling to keep pace.Rory, Jordan and myself are in the other wave, so that has a lot to do with it, Day said after his even-par 71 on Saturday.I think the best score out of our wave was two under with Patrick Reed and Rory, and obviously the (other) wave has played great golf and thats why theyre at the top of the leaderboard.So theres obviously a little bit of luck that is involved with getting to the top as well as playing good golf.But, once again, you get what you take and unfortunately thats just the way it is.Youve just got to try and get yourself into contention.Playing the brutal back nine in seven over has cost Day, but hes not the only one to have suffered.A triple-bogey on the railway hole, the punishing 11th, dashed Johnsons hopes on Saturday after the US Open champion surged to five under and within sight of the leaders.He finished at one under after his round of 72 included 39 on the back nine.McIlroy ended the third round with only 13 clubs after smashing his three wood in disgust on the 16th as the 2014 champion slumped to even for the tournament with a 73.And like Day, Spieth picked up four shots going out before giving them all back coming home to be five over and out following his third-round 72.The American then lashed reporters for expecting too much.Spieth said it seems hes become a victim of his own success after arriving at St Andrews last year with the chance to become the first player since 1953 to win golfs first three majors of the year and finishing one shot shy of a playoff.It seems a bit unfair at 22 to be expecting something like that all the time, Spieth said. Miikka Salomaki Jersey . Self was acquired from the Buffalo Bandits in a trade for Alex Hill midway through last season, and made his debut in Rochester on March 16, 2013. Yannick Weber Jersey . "It doesnt get any better than that," Giambi said. "Im speechless." The Indians are roaring toward October. Giambi belted a two-run, pinch-hit homer with two outs in the ninth inning to give Cleveland a shocking 5-4 win over the Chicago White Sox on Tuesday night, keeping the Indians up with the lead pack in the AL wild-card race. http://www.nhlpredatorshockeyshop.com/pekka-rinne-jersey/ . 1 position. The Mustangs (6-0), who beat Queens 50-31 last weekend, earned 17 first-place votes and 287 points in voting by the Football Reporters of Canada. Western was last ranked first in the country in October 2011. Western Bulldogs maestro Marcus Bontempelli has boosted his AFL sides top-four chances, helping them pip Collingwood by three points at Etihad Stadium.Bontempelli was quiet early but sparked the Bulldogs in the third quarter on Friday night, stepping up when the Magpies looked on track for an upset victory in the topsy-turvy tussle.Bulldogs Jordan Roughead and Nathan Hrovat missed chances to kick the sealer in a thrilling finish but their side prevailed 14.11 (95) to 14.8 (92).I was glad we stood up, Bontempelli told the Seven Network.Three points is pretty close but with games like that youre just happy to get over the line.Collingwood shot out to an 18-point lead soon after halftime.Darcy Moore was crashing packs, clutching marks and looking every part a match-winner for the Magpies.Bontempelli had struggled under the duress of a Levi Greenwood tag in the first half but tallied 12 touches and booted a crucial goal in the third term.The 20-year-old continued to impress in the final quarter, adding a second goal as the Bulldogs kept their cool in a frantic finish.The Bulldogs led by five points at quarter-time, one point at halftime and the scores were level at three-quarter time.They booted the opening two goals of the fourth quarter but the Magpies rallied, levelling the scores a further three times to set up a nail-biter.The Bulldogs were on the wrong end of two controversial freekicks in the final minute, including one for deliberate out of bounds, but hheld on. Dante Fabbro Jersey. Bontempelli finished with 26 possessions and seven tackles, while teammate Liam Picken did well to curb the influence of Magpies midfielder Steele Sidebottom after halftime.Moore, the young forward who fired Collingwood to a shock win over West Coast in round 19, returned from a hamstring injury and was a handful all night.The 20-year-old, who replaced veteran spearhead Travis Cloke in the Collingwood side, finished with three goals.Coach Luke Beveridge wont be content with many aspects of the Bulldogs performance.But with games against Essendon and Fremantle to follow before finals, Beveridges side should at least remain sixth on the ladder.The result means the Bulldogs join Sydney, Adelaide, Greater Western Sydney and Geelong on 14 wins - although all four of those premiership contenders are yet to play in round 21.I imagine it was a pretty good spectacle for viewers, Beveridge said.The heart was jumping out of the chest for most of the night.Collingwood threw the kitchen sink at us .. if it goes for another few minutes, who knows who gets the result.Magpies coach Nathan Buckley lamented a couple of key turnovers from his charges.The decisions were the right decisions but the execution hurt us for the most part, Buckley said.When you play against a good side theyre going to hurt you coming back the other way.
