not enough following an opening 76 that ultimately cost
PINEHURST, N.C. -- Masters champion Bubba Watson avoided major mistakes, putted well and seemed more comfortable in his second run through Pinehurst No. 2 at the U.S. Open. Too bad it came a day late. Watson shot an even-par 70 on Friday, not enough following an opening 76 that ultimately cost him a shot of playing on the weekend. "Its easy today," Watson joked. "After youre out of it, its kind of easy just to go around and play golf." Watson finished at 6-over 146 to miss the cut by a stroke. Jason Dufner, Luke Donald, Charl Schwartzel and Hunter Mahan -- -- done in by a two-shot penalty for playing the wrong ball on his ninth hole -- also dropped out after finishing at 6 over. Dufner has missed the cut in two straight majors after winning the PGA Championship. Watson won his second green jacket in three years in April -- his second PGA Tour victory this year -- then led late at the Memorial before faltering and finishing third. He arrived at Pinehurst hoping to become the first player since Tiger Woods in 2002 to win the years first two majors. But he never gave himself a chance, his stay cut short by Thursdays miserable round of five bogeys and one double-bogey -- a performance that had Watson lamenting that the course "is better than me right now." He got off to a better start Friday on a layout softened by overnight rain with birdies on two of his first three holes. He was more accurate hitting fairways and greens while also making more putts than a day earlier, but three bogeys in four holes just before the turn did him in. Watson tied for fifth at the U.S. Open in 2007 at Oakmont, but has missed the cut three times since. "The greens are very difficult," Watson said about Pinehurst. "For me personally, I dont like the look of it. The targets are really small to try to hit the greens. Youve got to hit the ball really straight I believe to hit it in the 10-foot circles on each green. So for me, its just a very difficult course." Donald was worse off than Watson after a 7-over 77 in his first round. He was much better Friday with only one bogey and a 69, but missed the U.S. Open cut for the second time in three years. Meanwhile, Schwartzel -- paired with Watson and top-ranked Adam Scott -- went the opposite direction. After an even-par 70 on Thursday, he had five bogeys and two double-bogeys en route to a 76 on Friday. Dufner, who missed the cut by six shots at the Masters, had 11 bogeys over two rounds and shot 74 on Friday. He had tied for fourth in the past two U.S. Opens. Then there was Mahan. A year after playing in Sundays final group, Mahan was penalized when he and Jamie Donaldson each mistakenly played the others ball in the 18th fairway following their tee shots. That two-shot penalty dropped Mahan below the cut line. John Wood, Mahans caddie, took the blame because he was the first one to reach the ball. "You cant imagine yourself doing something colossally as stupid as that, but I did it," Wood said. "I wont forgive myself very soon after this." Donaldson also missed the cut, shooting 81 on Friday after an even-par first round to finish at 11-over 151. Cullen Gillaspia Youth Jersey .m. on Friday.

The whole deflation of New England Patriots footballs is like a murder mystery without the violence or significance. On one side, this is a ridiculous issue.Gareth Southgates first game in interim charge of England ended in victory as Malta were beaten 2-0 at Wembley on Saturday. Daniel Sturridge and Dele Alli did the damage with two goals inside nine first-half minutes as England enjoyed a second successive victory in World Cup qualifying and moved to the top of Group F.The evening was as comfortable as Southgate might have expected against a side ranked 176th in the world, and the result, which comes 11 days after Sam Allardyce left the England job, will come as a welcome relief after a turbulent period for the national team. Should England drop Rooney? Alan Smith does not believe Wayne Rooney is good enough to play in midfield against Slovenia Southgate has taken over as caretaker England boss for four matches and made a big call by handing Manchester United forward Jesse Lingard his international debut in an attack that also featured the recalled Theo Walcott and Sturridge, with Wayne Rooney playing in a midfield role.Ryan Bertrand was selected at left-back but his afternoon came to a premature end in the 19th minute when he pulled up injured and was replaced by Danny Rose, who himself had only just recovered from a hamstring strain. This was the first England XI selected by Gareth Southgate That blow came during an opening spell in which England were frustrated by the minnows of Malta who played five at the back and had a goalkeeper, Andrew Hogg, in inspired form.After Rooney had tested his reflexes early on with a curling drive from the edge of the area, Hogg produced a good close-range save from Allis header before Sturridge volleyed the rebound into the stands with the goal at his mercy. Daniel Sturridge celebrates Englands first goal However, England found the breakthrough on 29 minutes when the impressive Jordan Henderson collected the ball from Walcott 30 yards from goal and crossed for Sturridge to divert a precise header into the bottom corner from eight yards. England-Malta talking points We pick out five talking points as England beat Malta 2-0 in Gareth Southgates first game in charge Hogg produced another fine close-range save four minutes later to keep out Lingards header, but he could not deny Alli as England doubled their lead seven minutes before half-time. Dele Alli was on target with Englands second Henderson and Sturridge exchanged passes in a patient England build-up and while Hogg kept out Allis initial effort from just inside the area he could do nothing to stop him poking the rebound into the net.dddddddddddd Watch NOW TV Watch Sky Sports for just £6.99. No contract. England continued to dominate after the break, but Hogg frustrated their attempts to improve their goal difference as he tipped a Rooney free-kick over the bar and rushed out to block Walcotts shot from an acute angle after the Arsenal forward had been slipped into space by Lingard. Wayne Rooney was deployed in a midfield role once again Walcott was replaced by Marcus Rashford on 68 minutes and two of the 18-year-olds Manchester United team-mates almost carved out a third as Rooneys quick free-kick resulted in Lingard fizzing a shot narrowly wide.Jamie Vardys introduction with 17 minutes remaining was met with warm applause from most of the 81,781 supporters inside Wembley, but England laboured as the game wore on and Joe Hart was forced into a rare save from Andre Agius volley with 10 minutes left. Southgate celebrated a comfortable evening at Wembley Alli should have scored his second and Englands third when he blasted Rashfords low cross over the bar from six yards with five minutes left - but Malta could not avoid a second defeat in as many World Cup qualifying matches.
