  • Kirk, Bowditch earn singles points for their Presidents Cup teams

    The International Team made a run at Team USA Sunday at the Presidents Cup, but came up one point short as the Americans won the event for the ninth time. The Americans are now 9-1-1 all time in the event that began in 1994 and features the top U.S. players against the top players in the world not eligible for The Ryder Cup. The format includes partner play over three days in foresomes and four ball matches, then twelve singles matches on the final day. Team USA had a one point lead moving into Sunday's final round. The two teams split those matches, winning five each and halving two. Two players affiliated with the Scott Hamilton Golf Academy (SHGA) and coached by Cartersville Country Club’s Director of Golf, Scott Hamilton, competed in the 2015 Presidents Cup in Incheon, Korea at the Jack Nicklaus Club. Chris Kirk (USA) and Steven Bowditch (AUS) were both 0-2-0 in their earlier partner matches, but both came up big for their respective teams Sunday to pick up wins. The Presidents Cup came down to the final hole of the final match. Bill Haas, the son of U.S. Captain Jay Haas, clinched the final point to hold off the International Team's push for the cup. Kirk, one of the SHGA players, defeated Anirban Lahiri 1 up for one of the American points. Both Kirk and Lahiri were 0-2 before Sunday's singles session. Their dramatic match was all-square entering the 18th hole. Lahiri hit his third shot to the par-5 within 4 feet and Kirk hit his third shot to 16 feet away. Kirk sank the putt and gave an emotional fist pump. Lahiri lipped out the four footer that resulted in Kirk's 1-up win. The other SHGA player, Bowditch, playing for The International Team, defeated American Jimmy Walker 2-up. Bowditch trailed after nine holes, but rallied on holes 10-12 to take the lead. Walker made birdie on number 17 to move to 1-down with one hole to play, but Bowditch birdied the final hole to complete the victory. Singles results: TEAM USA …......

  • Beasley working on his diet

    Atlanta Falcons' rookie, Vic Beasley, Jr., told ESPN Staff Writer, Vaughn McClure, this week he is giving up the fast food famous for beef and cheddar sandwiches with curly fries to work on improvements with his diet. That's likely good news for Falcons' fans because it appears the first year defensive end is looking for ways to raise his own ceiling and improve his physical conditioning. The former Adairsville and Clemson University Tiger has apparently been working with the team's nutritionist in efforts to improve the overall health of his diet. Vic Beasley, Jr. is one of the athletes tracked by Bartow Sports Zone via the Athletes Beyond Bartow page.

  • Updated local high school football region standings

    The top-ranked and undefeated Cartersville Purple Hurricanes remain at the top of the standings in Region 7AAAA through the games of October 9. Meanwhile, the Adairsville Tigers solidified their hold on the No. 2 spot in Region 6AAA with a 48-0 shutout victory at Murray County. With the Cass Colonels' 24-3 loss to Sequoyah, they must now win out and get some help to sneak into the Region 7AAAAA playoff games. The Colonels are idle October 16, but have games remaining at River Ridge and Rome. Cass will need wins in both of those games plus either a Dalton loss or a pair of Sequoyah losses to reach a meaningful region crossover game during the regular season's final week. The top three teams from each subregion qualify for region playoff games November 6. All the other teams also play crossover games on that date, but only the top three have an opportunity to advance to the state playoffs. Woodland fell to 1-5 and 1-2 in subregion action following a home 42-17 loss to Creekview. ************** Updated region standings for local schools.
