SOUTHPORT, England -- Bernhard Langer and Mark Wiebe were tied after two playoff holes Sunday night in the storm-delayed Senior British Open when darkness suspended play at Royal Birkdale. Custom Arizona Cardinals Jerseys . They will finish the playoff later tonight, and you can see the action on TSN2 beginning at 3am et/Midnight pt. Wiebe shot a 4-under 66 to match Langer at 9-under 271. Langer had a 70. They each parred the par-4 18th twice in the playoff. "Playing in the dark was a new one for me," Wiebe said. "Hopefully, well figure it out tomorrow." Langer, the 2010 winner at Carnoustie, blew a two-stroke lead with a double bogey on the final hole of regulation after hitting into a greenside bunker. Minutes earlier, Wiebes birdie putt at No. 18 came up short. "I gave it away," Langer said. "I could bogey the last hole and win. I thought I hit a decent shot in the bunker, but it came out too low. "But I made two good pars in the playoff in the dark, so what can you say. Im sorry to keep you all hanging round tomorrow." Corey Pavin, Peter Senior and David Frost tied for third at 6 under. Pavin shot a 65, Senior had a 66, and Frost a 70. Langer seemed in control most of the afternoon, making the turn in 2-under 32 and picking up another birdie at the 12th. But he dropped a shot at the 14th, before needing two shots to get out of the bunker and two putts on the green at the last. Wiebe made five birdies and one bogey in his round. In the first hole of the playoff, Wiebe two-putted from just off the green. Langer did the same from 4 feet closer. They were offered the chance by tournament referee Andy McFeeto to call it a day, but opted to try again. With the clubhouse lights trying to brighten the gloom, the players were driven back to the tee. Wiebe put his second shot almost exactly on the same spot where he hit to on the first playoff hole, while Langer was 20 feet away on the green. Wiebe putted up to 6 feet, Langer to 3. They sank their putts, shook hands and made plans to return Monday. D.J. Humphries Jersey .J. Jefferson has been charged with assaulting his girlfriend. Kurt Warner Jersey .

LOUIS -- Rookie Tavon Austin has missed another day of practice, lessening the odds hell be ready for the St.Got a question on rule clarification, comments on rule enforcements or some memorable NHL stories? Kerry wants to answer your emails at! Hey Kerry, would love to hear your explanation that distinguishes Andrew Shaws goalie interference in Game 3 (not enough to warrant a penalty, just enough to erase the goal?) from the entire body of work of Tomas Holmstroms career scoring goals in the blue paint.  Not to mention the nudge Shaw gets from the Detroit defenceman and he still doesnt even contact Howard!?!  That was a real momentum swinger in the game. How do you see it? Campbell Mayer Kerry, Was the disallowed Blackhawks goal that would have tied the game the right call or do you see it more as a makeup call for blowing a possible boarding call on the Patrick Kane goal? Thanks man. Keep it up! Ryan Morrill Campbell and Ryan: The Referees decision to disallow Andrew Shaws goal could be supported under the "letter of the law/rule"! As I looked at this play (video link), the only contact between Jimmy Howard and Shaw was initiated by the Wings goalkeeper when he chopped at Shaws skates a couple of times once the Hawk ventured into the top of the blue paint and in advance of the shot on goal. It is also true that there was minor contact between Shaw and the Detroit defenceman as the two players entered the goal crease. It might be worth noting that the Detroit defenceman sealed off any backdoor exit potential for Shaw if the Hawk considered this as an option; which is likely a reach for us to consider but none the less remotely plausible. Since no contact was initiated or resulted from Andrew Shaw on Jimmy Howard, the single thread under which goalie interference could be determined (again the letter of the rule) is found in 69.3—If an attacking player establishes a significant position within the goal crease, so as to obstruct the goalkeepers vision and impairs his ability to defend his goal, and a goal is scored, the goal will be disallowed. For this purpose, a player "establishes a significant position within the crease" when, in the Referees judgment, his body, or a substantial portion thereof, is with the goal crease for more than an instantaneous period of time.  I dont really believe that Jimmy Howards vision was obstructed but it could be said that Andrew Shaw did establish a significant position within the crease. SSince you mentioned Tomas Holmstrom, once he was flagged and put on the Refs radar screen, I have seen more than one goal disallowed when Tomas had his skates clearly outside the blue paint but established a significant portion of his rear end inside the crease and stuck in the face of the goalkeeper! Those calls surprised me at the time they were made. Chandler Jones Jersey. I felt they were an overreaction to the spirit and intent of the interference on the goalkeeper rule. I was likewise surprised by the decision last night to disallow Andrew Shaws goal last night when Jimmy Howard made the initial save and the rebound deflected off Shaw and into the net. I wont speculate as to whether the Referee was still thinking about a potential boarding call against Niklas Hjalmarsson nor whether the whistle could possibly have been blown prior to Patrick Kanes goal as Johan Franzen lay on the ice in a heap in the Chicago end zone until well after Kanes goal. Those potential questions could only be answered in the private thought process of the Referee. What I will offer is that when Niklas Hjalmarsson struck Johan Franzen directly on the numbers of his back from close proximity to the end boards, a boarding infraction occurred. Since Franzen was able to put his hands up as protection against a full face-plant into the boards only a minor penalty for boarding was deserved. This series is certainly turning nasty. Several battles in front of and behind the net resulted in hard slashes, cross-checks and punches to the head between combatants. Sometimes unsportsmanlike conduct penalties even resulted. Holding on the other hand was always called whenever a player used his free-hand to gain an advantage or momentarily detain his opponent! I cite the last game played in the San Jose—Los Angeles series as one that was very well officiated. The game had great intensity throughout with hard hits being allowed throughout and a consistent standard of enforcement was adopted. The players were allowed to play on the edge throughout the entire game but when infractions occurred there was no reluctance to call them. The two penalties called in the dying minutes of regulation with the score tied were "must call" infractions that were not avoid by the Referee. That standard, my friends, is the model that I hope all the Refs will follow throughout the balance of these playoffs.     Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
