SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. Lamar Jackson Ravens Jersey
. - Francesco Molinari of Italy had to return Saturday morning to finish his second round at the Phoenix Open, and he couldnt believe the number of people who filed into the grandstands at the par-3 16th hole just as the sun was rising over the TPC Scottsdale.A few hours later, Molinari made it worth their while.He made a hole-in-one on the largest, loudest area in golf for a par 3 and got a reaction unlike any other in golf.Something you dont see in golf every day, Molinari said after his 7-under 64.Maybe he was talking about more than 15,000 fans crammed onto one hole, packed into bleachers and sky boxes. More likely he was talking about how dozens of fans began heaving plastic beer bottles around the 16th green out of sheer euphoria of seeing such a big moment.It was his third hole-in-one, this one unlike the others. He once made one in Malaysia while returning the next morning from a rain delay, and its safe to say there was in neighbourhood of 15,000 fewer fans that day than in Phoenix.And it was the first time he had seen so many beer containers rain down from the stands.First and last, hopefully, he said with a smile. Brian Davis had to play after me, unfortunately. So he had to wait to let the guys clear the green and the bunkers. I dont know how to describe it. You have to see it. And it was obviously amazing for me to be there and have a hole-in-one in that scenario.Even more bizarre, was what happened to his golf ball. Molinari, caught up in the moment, heaved it into the grandstands. Surprisingly, someone threw it back.They nearly hit Brian Davis again, Molinari said. A volunteer just raked it out of the bunker and gave it to me at the end of the round. It was nice to get it back. I dont know if I will keep it or give it to someone. I wasnt expecting to see it come back from the stands.In his first trip to the Phoenix Open, Molinari doesnt know its like to get booed for missing the green. He made two-putt pars the first two days, and on Saturday, he didnt have to putt at all.Theres still Sunday.I guess tomorrow I will hit it to 2 feet and I will be booed, he said.___RAHM-BO: Even more amazing than Arizona State junior Jon Rahm being in the hunt at the Phoenix Open is doing it while being under the weather.He has been dealing with a stomach virus the last few days, and it didnt help to wake up at 5:30 a.m. to finish his first round on Friday.It was hurting all the time, Rahm said. I felt like I was going to vomit all the time. And when I got here, I got a headache, my body started feeling bad, and I finished those two holes. Then I went to the doctor. They gave me something for my stomach to calm me down and something for the headache. I played through the round.Adrenaline took over from there, so he feels fine on the golf course. Its when he finishes that he starts to ache.Im just trying to drink a lot of liquids and get the virus out of me, he said.___WELCOME BACK, ZACH: Zach Johnson isnt sure why he had not played the Phoenix Open in five years, but he has no regrets.Johnson shot a 67 on Saturday and was tied for second, three shots behind Martin Laird.Its one of those situations I didnt know if it would be good for me, he said of the TPC Scottsdale. I think its a good golf course for me. Obviously, three days in its pretty clear that its not a bad course for me.___SUPER TEE TIME: Keegan Bradley, so uptight about his beloved New England Patriots that he wears receivers gloves when he watches on TV, already has his tickets for the Super Bowl in nearby Glendale between the Patriots and the Seattle Seahawks.And now he wont have to worry about rushing to get there.Bradley shot an even-par 71 on Saturday and was at 4-under 209. That puts him in the middle of the pack, and with the final round going off both tees, it was an ideal position for a guy who wants to watch some football on Sunday.He is in the second group off at 9:15 a.m. The game starts at 4:30 p.m. local time.___DIVOTS: Kevin Chappell, who lives in Scottsdale during the winter, had reason to think it might be a short week when he opened with a 75. Chappell bounced back with a pair of 65s and goes into the final round just five shots out of the lead. ... Justin Thomas has played all 15 rounds in 2015 at par or better. ... Rahm is the fifth Arizona State player to compete at the Phoenix Open while still on the golf team. The best finish of the other four was Phil Mickelson, who tied for 32nd in 1991.

. Miralem Pjanic dribbled through the defence to score an extraordinary goal in the 43rd minute at the Stadio Olimpico and Gervinho added another from a rebound in the 65th for Romas ninth straight victory — ending Milans five-match winning streak.TORONTO -- In coach Randy Carlyles estimation, the Toronto Maple Leafs have had to make last-minute lineup decisions much more this season than usual, and the health of David Clarkson forced them into another one. With Clarkson deemed "questionable" by Carlyle to play Saturday night against the Philadelphia Flyers, the Leafs recalled tough guy Frazer McLaren from the AHLs Toronto Marlies. McLaren, who cleared waivers before the trade deadline, would be playing in his fifth post-Olympic break game if he takes Clarksons spot in the lineup. That Clarkson was still bothered by a pulled muscle in his leg which seemed to start during Fridays practice came as a surprise to Carlyle. Following the morning skate at Air Canada Centre, the veteran coach left open the possibility the Leafs could dress 11 forwards and seven defencemen or make a recall, as they did with McLaren. "Its always tough when youre missing quality players, and nobody wants to do that, but in the situation if the player is not deemed healthy by our medical staff and himself, then we have no other choice other than to make decisions," Carlyle said. Clarkson has four goals and six assists in 43 games for Toronto after starting the season with a 10-game suspension. Those 10 points are good for 14th on the team and tied with Dave Bolland, who hasnt played since November. Captain Dion Phaneuf will play against Philadelphia as Carlyle said Friday. Phaneuf took part in the morning skate, his first time on the ice this week witth teammates outside of game action. Willie Snead IV Ravens Jersey
. "I feel good," Phaneuf said. "Obviously when youre not on the ice for a couple days, you want to get back, feel the puck a bit before you go right into a game." Phaneuf, who leads the Leafs in average ice time at 24:19 a game, has played in every game this season except the two he was suspended for boarding Kevan Miller of the Boston Bruins. That included games this week against the Columbus Blue Jackets and New York Rangers. Taking some time off between games is a matter of preservation for Phaneuf. "Sometimes when you have the opportunity to rest certain things, you want to take the time to do that," he said. "You weigh how much hockeys going to be played. "For me, it was good to be able to get those couple days to recharge and to rest a couple bumps and bruises." More than bumps and bruises have kept Bolland and tough guy Colton Orr out. Bolland hasnt played since having a tendon on the back of his ankle sliced Nov. 2 while Orr has been out the past six games. The Leafs open a five-game road trip Monday in Anaheim, and Carlyle hopes Bolland and Orr will be available by the end of it, March 17 at Detroit. "Orrsy skated again today, so Orrsys getting close," he said. "And with Bolland, its a situation as weve talked about before where were just waiting and biding our time and hopefully rebuilding that ankle, that area. "Hell give us the green light when he says hes ready."
