Adam Scott will attempt to win his third Australian Masters title in a row on yet another renowned Melbourne sand-belt course, and with a tryout caddie on his bag. Eric Hosmer Jersey .Scott went close to winning Australian golfs so-called Triple Crown last year but Rory McIlroys birdie on the 18th hole at the Australian Open relegated Scott to second place at that tournament.On Thursday, Scott begins play at Metropolitan, which is hosting the Masters for the first time. Last year, Scott beat American Matt Kuchar by two strokes at Royal Melbourne, successfully defending the Australian Masters title he won at Kingston Heath in 2012.No. 2-ranked Scott, with U.S.-based Englishman David Clark as caddie, will then renew his rivalry with No. 1 McIlroy in the Australian Open next week at Sydney.Scott will also aim to defend his Australian PGA title next month at Royal Pines in Queensland state.I am very happy with where my game is coming in, Scott said Wednesday. I had a good summer here last year, so to keep that momentum would be great. Im hoping to make it three in a row.Scott said he always intended to play in Australias three biggest tournaments of the year. The only other event that attracts international players in Australia is the Perth International, a joint European Tour event which was held in October.If all I have to do to help the game in Australia is play these events, then it is a pretty easy role for me, he said.Others in the Australian Masters field include Americans Kyle Stanley and Boo Weekley. Weekley is also entered in next weeks Open at Sydney, joining Scott, McIlroy and Jordan Spieth at The Australian Golf Club. McIlroy won by a stroke last year at Royal Sydney.The Masters first appearance at Metropolitan, which hosted the world match play in 2001, comes with some controversy. Recently, a betting agency was confirmed as the primary sponsor of the event, which was first played at nearby Huntingdale in 1979.At the same time, the word Australian was deleted from the tournament masthead and replaced with the betting agency name, a move that didnt sit well with anti-gambling groups. It was also too much, it seems, for the website of the century-old Metropolitan club, which continues to refer to the tournament as the Australian Masters and makes no mention of the new sponsor on its site.The Australian PGA, scheduled for Dec. 11-14, will include Scott, Weekley and former champion Robert Allenby, who is the only golfer to win Australias Triple Crown in 2005.Scott was expected to have Clark, who first caddied for him two weeks ago at the HSBC Champions in Shanghai, working all three Australian tournaments in the absence of Steve Williams, the veteran former caddie of Tiger Woods.Williams and Scott parted ways after the caddie said he only wanted to work a part-time schedule next year.On Wednesday, Scott suggested he might use a couple different guys after this week and kind of see where things are at and who is going to fit in best next year in a more permanent position.Scott will take a lengthy Christmas break after the Australian PGA and might not return until late January or early February. Alcides Escobar Royals Jersey . Dwyane Wade took over in the fourth quarter. Salvador Perez Jersey . -- The Orlando Magic finally are showing the patience in critical moments that coach Jacque Vaughn has been waiting for all season. http://www.authentickcroyalsprostore.us/Joakim-Soria-royals-jersey/ . City, fielding a depleted team having already qualified, was twice pegged back by the plucky Czech champions but substitute Negredo tapped home in the 78th minute and Dzekos header made sure of victory in the 89th. The result kept City three points behind Bayern Munich ahead of their meeting in Germany in two weeks.HOUSTON -- The Houston Rockets are heading to the playoffs for the second straight year and believe wins like the one they picked up Friday night will help them when they get there. James Harden scored 39 points and the Rockets ended a three-game skid and clinched a playoff berth with a 111-107 victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder "It was a great win for us ... just to give ourselves confidence, especially going into the playoffs," Harden said. "We might see them. It was a big win for us. It shows the resilience we have." Kevin Durant scored 28 points and grabbed 12 rebounds for his 40th straight game with at least 25 points, the longest streak since Michael Jordan also did it 40 consecutive times in 1986-87. But he was in no mood to talk about matching the feat after the game. "We lost the game thats all Im worried about," he said. "I dont care. We lost." The normally mild-mannered Durant, who leads the NBA with 32.1 points a game, talked a little trash afterward when asked if he was frustrated by the physical defence Houstons Chandler Parsons and Francisco Garcia played on him. "Those dudes cant check me 1-on-1," he said. "They know that. I aint afraid to say it either. They know that. So I was playing the double-teams, triple-teams, but you still got to find a way to do it. Theyre physical just like everybody else and Ive been playing against physical players my whole life, so its nothing different." The Thunder, who had already secured a playoff berth, clinched their fourth consecutive Northwest Division title with a loss by Portland later Friday. Durants 3-pointer cut Houstons lead to one with 1:01 remaining, but Houston answered with four straight free throws. He made another 3 with 16 seconds left, but Harden made two free throws to push the lead to 111-107. Harden was 17 of 20 from the line and had nine rebounds and seven assists. The Rockets were playing without Dwight Howard and Patrick Beverley, who both missed their fourth straight games. Howard has missed seven games recently because of a left ankle strain and Beverley is out indefinitely with a torn meniscus in his right knee. "Theres all kind of adversity in playoff games and playoff runs," coacch Kevin McHale said. Kansas City Royals Hoodie. . "Youve got to be resilient and thats what Ive been preaching with the guys and the coaching staff. Youve just got to stay in the fight and keep swinging. When we do that, were OK." Serge Ibaka tied a career high with 27 points in a game that Russell Westbrook didnt play because the Thunder were playing the second night of a back-to-back. Parsons added 23 points for Houston and Terrence Jones had 16 points and 11 rebounds. Oklahoma City was up by one before Houston scored seven straight points to take a 104-98 lead with less than three minutes left. The Rockets made four free throws before a 3-pointer by Garcia. The Rockets started the fourth quarter with 3-pointers by Jeremy Lin, Isaiah Canaan and Harden for a 9-2 spurt which gave them a 91-86 lead with about 10 minutes left. Durant scored the next four points to get Oklahoma City within 91-90. Houston scored the last six points of the third quarter to cut the lead to 84-82 entering the fourth quarter. The Thunder scored 39 points in the third quarter to take the lead after trailing the entire game. They opened the second half with a 9-0 run punctuated by a dunk by Ibaka to make it 54-52. Houston went right back on top with a 3-pointer by Parsons, but a 9-2 spurt by the Thunder gave them a 63-57 lead with about seven minutes left in the quarter. The Thunder trailed through the first quarter and cut it to three points early in the second quarter on a 3-pointer by Caron Butler before an 11-0 run by Houston pushed the lead to 43-29 about five minutes before halftime. Harden scored the last seven points in that span and capped it by making a 3-pointer with Derek Fisher right in his face. Durant scored Oklahoma Citys final five points to get the Thunder within 50-45 at halftime. The first three points of that run came when Durant was fouled on an off-balance layup he made with his back to the basket and then made the free throw. NOTES: The 39 points the Thunder scored in the third quarter were the most anyone has scored against Houston this season in the quarter. ... Hall of Famer Hakeem Olajuwon watched the game from a courtside seat. ... The win was Houstons 50th, giving them the 10th 50-win season in franchise history.
