KNOXVILLE, Tenn. Nike Shoes From China . -- J.J. Spaun made a 12-foot birdie putt on the final hole for a record-setting victory Sunday in the Web.com Tours News Sentinel Open.Already assured a PGA Tour card as a top-25 finisher on the money list, Spaun broke through at Fox Den on his 26th birthday for his first tour victory.Spaun closed with a 5-under 66 and a one-stroke victory over best friend Sam Ryder, the third-round leader. Ryder had a chance to force a playoff, but missed an 8-foot birdie try on the par-5 18th, moments after Spaun made his go-ahead putt.I fought really hard out there and to have a putt at the last hole to win it and to bury it was a dream feeling, Spaun said. A lot of redemption in that putt.Spaun had a 26-under 258 total to break the tournament record of 23 under set by set by Tim Conley in 1993 at Willow Creek and matched by Heath Slocum in 2001 at Fox Den. Spaun broke Conleys mark of 263.Spaun won after finishing second twice this season, a run that jokingly promoted The Bridesmaid tag from his tour friends. He lost a playoff to Ollie Schniederjans in June in Wichita, Kansas, and was second behind Nicholas Lindheim last month in Lehi, Utah.Ive been knocking on the door all year, had a couple really close chances that I let slip out of my hands, and I didnt want that to happen today, especially when I had that opportunity on the last hole. I knew it was my time and I knew I was going to make it, and I buried it.Spaun earned $99,000 to jump from fifth to third on the money list with $335,432 with only the regular-season finale left next week at Pumpkin Ridge in Oregon. Last year, the former San Diego State player earned a Web.om Tour card by topping the Mackenzie Tour-PGA Tour Canada money list.Spaun opened with rounds of 66, 62 and 64 to begin the final round a stroke behind Ryder.Sam could have used the win more than I could have honestly. I wanted him to win if I didnt win, but I also didnt want it to come down to how it came down, Spaun said. I wish he would have just kicked my butt today and beat me by six shots. I would have been happy. To come down the stretch and to make a putt and force him to make it, it just felt bad. Its a tough situation. He understands, and he said I can be happy, but its just kind of a downer to be honest.Ryder closed with a 68 after opening with rounds of 64, 64 and 63. He earned $59,400 to move from 55th to 29th on the money list with $137,961.I dont feel great right now, to be honest, Ryder said. I came out solid, I was playing good all day, made two bogeys from inside 60 yards, had a couple three-putts and felt like I kind of let it slip away. I fought back, yeah, but its going to sting for a minute.Spaun was making his 19th Web.com Tour start. He has five top-six finishes in his last nine events.Ryan Brehm and Rick Lamb tied for third at 23 under. Brehm had a 66, and Lamb shot 67. Nike Shoes China . That left plenty of energy for pitching books and swatting away free agency questions. Anthony had 24 points and nine rebounds, and the Knicks avenged an embarrassing home loss with a rout of their own, beating the Boston Celtics 114-88 on Wednesday night for their third straight victory. Cheap Nike Shoes From China . - Oakland Raiders running back Rashad Jennings was speaking to a group of local high school students earlier this week when the conversation turned to the importance of being prepared when opportunities in life arise. https://www.nikeshoeschina.us/ . Dallas hasnt ruled out the star quarterback for Sunday nights game against Philadelphia, but all signs point to Romos back injury pushing Kyle Orton into the starting role after two years of limited play as the backup. Surely Ortons name isnt the first that comes to mind for fans wanting a change after years of damaging interceptions, fumbles or, most infamously, the field goal flub when Romo dropped the snap on a kick that could have won his first playoff game in 2006.Its a simple recipe: get a quality start, some timely hits and a few solid defensive plays when required. Do that often enough and you should win more baseball games than you lose.  Monday night, in front of 5,088 spectators at Shaw Park, the Winnipeg Goldeyes got a two-run homer from Josh Mazzola, a solid start from Pete Gehle and some terrific defensive plays from the likes of Josh Moesquit and Josh Mazzola, as the Fish built a 6-1 lead and hung on to beat the Trois-Rivieres Aigles 6-5 in a thriller. With the win, the Goldeyes won their third straight game, improved to 34-32 on the season and 5-2 on this 11-game homestand. By taking three-of-four from Trois-Rivieres, the Goldeyes have now won four consecutive series. "We kind of put ourselves in harms way by making two errors and allowing two unearned runs," said Goldeyes manager Rick Forney. "But the bottom line is, we got out of here with a win and another series victory and its not easy to win three-of-four against any team. Its even tougher against that team over there. Theyre pretty good. They scrap and claw, they never quit and they have some good arms over there. We were fortunate to beat them." Winnipeg opened the scoring in the first inning, as Amos Ramon singled, Ryan Scoma singled and Casey Haerther doubled to drive in both base runners. Then Mazzola hit a bomb over the left-centre field wall to give Winnipeg a 4-0 advantage.After Trois-Rivieres scored a run off Gehle in the top of the second, Winnipeg answered with a run in the bottom of the inning. Moesquit beat out an infield hit, Tyler Graham beat out a bunt siingle and Ramon drove home Moesquit with a solid single to left. Wholesale Nike Shoes From China. Winnipeg made it 6-1 in the third as Haerther led off with a single, Fehlandt Lentini singled and then Moesquit singled to drive home Haerther from second. The Aigles scored a run in the fourth, two more in the fifth on a two-run double by Cam Kneeland and one in the ninth on an RBI single by Kneeland, but Kaohi Downing and Chris Kissock came out of the bullpen to shut down the visitors in the seventh and eighth innings and then closer Patrick Keating survived a one-run ninth to give Winnipeg its third straight win and fourth straight series victory. "Right now, were doing enough to win games," said Forney. "For a month or so there, we were doing just enough to lose. But now were getting it done and until youre mathematically eliminated from the playoffs you have to keep fighting for every win." Red-hot Casey Haerther had another big game going two-for-four with two runs scored and two driven in. Kevin Moesquit, who made a brilliant defensive play in the eighth to potentially save a run, and Amos Ramon each had two hits, a run scored and an RBI. Mazzola had two hits, including that big two-run homer. Gehle (4-4, 4.13 ERA) got the win for Winnipeg, while Keating (2.90 ERA) picked up his 13th save. Starter Luis Munoz (2-2, 3.60 ERA) pitched a complete game, but still suffered the loss for Trois-Rivieres. The Goldeyes will open a four-games-in-three-nights series with the Lincoln Saltdogs on Tuesday night. It will be a doubleheader (two seven-inning games) beginning at 6 p.m. at Shaw Park. ' ' '
