SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. Glenn Hubbard Jersey . - Bernhard Langer robbed the Charles Schwab Cup Championship of some of its usual drama when he wrapped up the points title a week before the Champions Tour finale.Tom Pernice Jr. and Jay Haas made up for it Sunday at Desert Mountain.Two holes after slashing out backward from a rocky wash channel in the desert, Pernice finally finished off Haas with a birdie on the fourth extra hole. The 55-year-old Pernice got up-and-down from the left bunker to end it on the par-5 18th, holing a 6-foot birdie putt after Haas made a 12-footer for par.I just said, Hes going to make it, so you need to be prepared to play it on the right edge. And it rolled right in, Pernice said. It was pretty scrappy. I hung in there. Short game is part of it as well and my short game held up and carried me through.Pernice closed with a 3-under 67 — also making a 6-foot birdie putt on 18 — to match Haas at 11-under 269 on the Cochise Course. The 60-year-old Haas had a 66.Jay and I have become good friends, Pernice said. Ive gone back and played in his charity event in Greenville. I hate for anybody to lose.Pernice earned $440,000 in the event limited to the top 30 on the money list. He also won a playoff in Iowa in June and has four career victories on the 50-and-over tour after winning twice on the PGA Tour.I was just thinking last night, its such a privilege to be able to be out here, first and foremost, to be out here playing with Freddie Couples and Jay Haas and Kenny Perry and Bernhard Langer and Hale Irwin and Tom Watson, Pernice said. To be able to do that and compete and do what we do at our age is pretty amazing that this is here for us.Langer closed with a 65 to tie for fourth at 9 under. The 57-year-old German star won his second Charles Schwab Cup points title last week to earn a $1 million annuity and made $158,000 on Sunday to break Hale Irwins tour record with $3,074,189. Irwin earned $3,082,304 in 2002.Langer topped the money list for the sixth time in seven years. He led the tour with five victories, two of them majors, and had 12 top-three finishes in 20 starts. He also won the season points title in 2010.Its still mind-boggling just to reflect on my year, Langer said. When you think about it, you play golf from January until now, its 10 months, and to have played as consistently well as Ive done in 20 tournaments is hard to believe really.Haas had birdie chances to win on the second and third playoff holes, but missed both to the right.It was a long day, longer for the team that loses in extra innings, Haas said. Toms such a beautiful bunker player and pitcher of the ball and everything. I knew I was going to have to make a birdie to beat him.On the par-3 17th on the third extra hole, Haas missed a 15-foot birdie putt. Pernice made a 6-footer after missing the green to the left and hitting a flop shot.On 18 on the second playoff hole, Haas 8-foot birdie also slid right, and Pernice made a 4-footer for a scrambling par. He drove right into a narrow wash channel in the desert, gouged the ball backward to the fairway, hit his 246-yard approach to the right of the green and set up the par putt with a long pitch.Just hit a bad drive, Pernice said. I had been aiming down the left side and kind of cutting with the wind and came up and out of it and blocked it and so the wind got it. .... Luckily, I had a shot, but I had to go backwards quite a ways because I was going in the direction of the washout.Haas made a 6-foot birdie putt on 18 to stay alive on the first extra hole after Pernice two-putted for birdie.In regulation on 18, Haas holed a 35-foot birdie putt from the fringe to take the lead at 11 under. Pernice — playing a group behind — forced the playoff with his 6-foot birdie putt.Haas opened with rounds of 66 and 62 to take a four-stroke lead and break the tour record for consecutive rounds of par or better at 38, then shot 75 on Saturday to fall a stroke behind Pernice and Perry.Haas won two weeks ago in North Carolina to become the 18th player to win a Champions Tour event at 60 or older. He has 17 Champions Tour victories after winning nine PGA Tour titles.Its been a wonderful year and, you know, just a shot here or there, Haas said. Yesterday just was pretty awful, but today came back on a pretty tough day to have a chance there.Perry eagled the final hole for a 68 to finish a stroke back.Colin Montgomerie had a 67 to match Montgomerie at 9 under. Dave Henderson Jersey . -- With Tony Allen back, the Memphis Grizzlies were able to turn up their defence pressure and hold off the Los Angeles Clippers down the stretch. Stephen Piscotty Jersey . 1. AMIR JOHNSON: Nice to see him back in the lineup Tuesday night in Washington DC. Played with great energy and purpose. Its amazing when a guy gets those few precious days to recover what it does to the bounce in their step and overall game/confidence.INDIANAPOLIS -- Indiana already had the leagues No. 1 defence. The Lakers discovered Tuesday that the Pacers offence is becoming just as potent. Paul George had 20 points, seven rebounds and six assists, newcomer Evan Turner and five other Pacers reached double figures, and the top team in the East blew out the worst team in the West, 118-98. "Were probably one of the deepest teams in the NBA, where one through 15 can actually really play," Pacers guard George Hill said after scoring 14 points. "It shows that if we continue to move the ball and share the ball like that, it can be anybodys night." This is precisely what Indiana (43-13) envisioned when it pulled the trigger on the biggest deal before last Thursdays deadline. Team president Larry Bird spent most of the off-season reconstructing a bench that didnt quite get the job done against Miami in last years Eastern Conference finals. So hes continued tweaking it throughout the season, signing former All-Star centre Andrew Bynum 3 1/2 weeks ago and then sending former All-Star Danny Granger to Philadelphia for Turner and Lavoy Allen. The Pacers looked like a more explosive team in the second half of Turners first game. He finished with 13 points and six rebounds and was 6 of 12 from the field, leading the Pacers bench to a season-best 50 points. "Hes on this team and Im on the same page as him," George said. "Hes a player who can make shots and make things happen. Hes a huge talent for us and its great to have him here." The addition of Turner certainly helped the Pacers maintain their grip on the leagues best record and best home record (27-3). Indiana is now two full games ahead of Miami in the chase for home-court advantage in the East. Indiana appears to have all the pieces in place, too, though Tuesday nights big game came against a reeling team that has lost six of its last seven while playing without Kobe Bryant. But the Pacers didnt change the blueprint. In addition to the big games from George, Hill and Turner, Indiana also got 13 points from Lance Stephenson; 11 points and 12 rebounds from David West; 10 points, six rebounds and four blocks from Roy Hibbert and 11 more poinnts from C. Rollie Fingers Jersey. J. Watson, who missed only one shot all night. Ian Mahinmi and Luis Scola each scored nine points, too, and Stephenson was the only Indiana player to log more than 28 minutes. There was no defensive letdown, either. Los Angeles (19-38) shot 43.3 per cent from the field, 34.8 per cent on 3-pointers and got demolished on the glass, 62-42, as Indiana grabbed a season-high 21 offensive rebounds. Newly acquired guard Kent Bazemore finished with 23 points, the third straight game hes had a career high since he was traded to the Lakers from Golden State. Wesley Johnson added 15 points, while Pau Gasol and Jodie Meeks each had 13. But it was an abysmal night for the Lakers, who managed only 16 points in the decisive third quarter and half of their 44 second-half points during the final seven minutes, after they trailed by 33. "Well go back and watch the film and get a better idea of how badly we played," coach Mike DAntoni said. For 2 1/2 quarters, things didnt look so bleak for the Lakers. They trailed just 57-54 at halftime and closed to 59-58 when Gasol knocked down a 15-foot jumper early in the third quarter. The Pacers didnt let it get any closer. West answered with a tip-in and Hill followed with five straight points to make it 66-59. Then George accounted for 10 quick points in a 14-5 run that pushed Indianas lead to 80-66. After a layup from Chris Kaman, the Pacers closed the quarter on an 11-2 run that included Watsons 3 with two seconds left to make it 91-70 after three. Indianas 12-6 run to start the fourth quarter gave them a 103-76 lead and the Lakers couldnt get closer than 19 the rest of the way. "Its good to have another guy out there that can put the ball on the floor, get in the paint and make plays," George said of Turner. "I think we are kind of perfect for his game." Notes: Indiana has the NBAs top two single-game rebounding totals this season, both against the Lakers. They outrebounded Los Angeles 63-43 on Jan. 28. ... Los Angeles had won its previous three games in Indy. ... Turner received polite applause when he entered the game for the first time with about 4 1/2 minutes left in the first quarter. Youth NFL Jerseys Cheap Disocunt Football Jerseys China Jerseys Wholesale Authentic Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Free Shipping China NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Wholesale ' ' '
