Gordon: I’d be lying if I said derby was not a big match

first_img“It’s not. For the players it’s not. I’d be lying if I told you any different. It’s a big game, everybody knows it’s a big game.“It’s a game you never get tired of playing in. The atmosphere, everything that goes with it in the week leading up to it.”He added: “Now that it’s here we’re looking forward to it. You’re always going to look for where these games are and where they are in the calendar. “Everyone looks forward to them. The stadiums are packed out, the atmospheres are fantastic and as a player there’s nothing bigger than that.” Craig Gordon believes the Old Firm derby is like no other game in Scottish football and would be lying if he said Saturday’s fixture was not a big game. The sides meet at Celtic Park for Saturday’s lunchtime kick-off in the Scottish Premiership with the Hoops 11 points clear at the top of the table. The keeper says it is the fixture the players most look forward to because they do not come any bigger.Speaking ahead of the Glasgow showdown, Gordon said:”It’s a big game. You can try to say it’s like any other game, it’s three points, but no one’s going to believe that. last_img read more

Shubhankar becomes youngest Indian to win Asian Tour Order of Merit,Shubhankar becomes youngest Indian to win Asian Tour Order of Merit

first_img× Published on COMMENTS COMMENT SHARE Shubhankar Sharma SHARE SHARE EMAILcenter_img December 08, 2018 Shubhankar Sharma on Saturday became the youngest Indian to clinch the Asian Tour Order of Merit after a ground-breaking year of achievements. He won it even before the finish of the last two events of the 2018 season.Sharma, who has led the Habitat for Humanity Order of Merit from February this year kept his nose ahead all the time.After finishing tied sixth at the Hong Kong Open, which was his 11th start in a row and 15th in 16 weeks from the Open de France in June-July, Sharma skipped the Queen’s Cup, Mauritius Open and the South African Open, despite a late challenge being mounted by South African Justin Harding. This week as Harding missed the cut, any chance of him overtaking Sharma also ended and the Indian added another feather to his well-adorned cap.Sharma, 22, became the fifth and the youngest Indian to win the Asian Tour Order of Merit. He joins Indian golfing legends like Jyoti Randhawa (2002), Arjun Atwal (2003), Jeev Milkha Singh (2006 and 2008) and Anirban Lahiri (2015).None of the previous Indian winners of the Asian Tour Order of Merit were below 30 when they reached the top, while Sharma is just 22. Jeev is the only one in the list to win the Merit honours twice.“The Asian Tour Order of Merit was something very significant for me, as were many of the other milestones, but with this I have followed in the footsteps of golfers like Jyoti Randhawa, Arjun Atwal, Jeev Milkha Singh and Anirban Lahiri, all of whom I look up to and who have been very encouraging to me,” said Sharma. Sharma is due to make his final start of 2018 at the BNI Indonesia Masters next week in Jakarta, where he will also be officially crowned as Asian Tour’s No. 1. The latest success rounds off a superb year for Sharma, who followed up his first Asian — European Tour win at Joburg Open in mid-December, by winning the Malaysian Championships in February. The young golfer, who at one time led both Asian and European Tour Order of Merits, went on to achieve his career-best World Ranking of 64 by finishing tied ninth on his WGC debut in Mexico and then finishing tied seventh at Hero Indian Open. Sharma’s cheque of USD 500,000 from Malaysia gave him a headstart in the merit race. He went on to play all four Majors, as he was invited by the Augusta National Golf Club, and qualified for other three Majors, and also played all four WGC events. He also topped the race for the European Tour’s Rookie of Year and won the Sir Harry Cotton Award. During the year, he was also honoured with the Arjuna Award, presented to him by the President of India. Sharma’s highlights of the year included the win in Malaysia, Top-10s in WGC-Mexico (T-9); Hero Indian Open (T-7); CIMB Classic (T-10) and Hong Kong Open (T-6). golf Shubhankar Sharma 0last_img read more
