Stefan Logan and the resurgence

Golf took another stand against video evidence Tuesday by announcing a new decision that would not penalize a player whose ball moves at rest if the movement is only detected by enhanced pictures. LaMarr Woodley Cardinals Jersey . It was the second time in the last two years that the U.S. Golf Association and Royal & Ancient have established new guidelines involving video. The next edition of "Decisions on the Rules of Golf" effective Jan. 1 will include three new decisions, the most significant being 18/4. It says that when "enhanced technological evidence" shows that a ball moved, it will not be deemed to have moved if not "reasonably discernible to the naked eye at the time." The new decision did not stem from Tiger Woods being penalized two shots in the BMW Championship in September. His ball moved barely a dimple as he tried to remove a twig from in front of the ball. The movement was captured by a videographer, and the violation was detected by an editor going through the film. Even after watching video after his round, Woods said he thought the ball only oscillated. At the time, rules officials already had gone through multiple drafts of the new decision. Decision 18/4 instead was an offshoot of Decision 33-7/4.5 in 2011. Under that decision, officials can waive disqualification for an incorrect scorecard if a player was unaware of a rules violation. The example was Peter Hanson, who double-hit a chip shot. The violation was only detected through HDTV played in super slow-motion. Thomas Pagel, the USGAs senior director of rules and competition, said an example of Decision 18/4 would be a player addressing his ball in the rough, and only a camera zoomed in on the ball showed it moving fractionally based on the blades of grass around the ball. In that case, the player would have no idea it had moved. The "Decisions" are updated every two years. The Rules of Golf are updated every four years. The latest decisions were part of a movement by the USGA and R&A to deal with increased advances in video technology. In a joint statement, they said the Rules of Golf committees continue to look at other issues related to video. That includes the precision in marking, lifting and replacing a golf ball; estimating where to take relief; and the appropriate penalty for returning an incorrect scorecard when the player was unaware of a violation. "As is true of the rules in many other televised sports, adapting to developments in technology and video evidence is an important ongoing topic in making and applying the Rules of Golf," the statement said. What remains unaffected is television viewers reporting potential violations. Golf officials say it is important to consider all evidence from any source. The only change is that a player might not be penalized if the only clear evidence is from enhanced video. The other chances to the 2014-15 edition of "Decisions:" --Decision 14-3/18 allows players to use smart phones to access weather reports. The new decision also clarifies that players are permitted access to information on the threat of an approaching storm for their own safety. --Decision 25-2/0.5 was revised to clarify when a golf ball is embedded. Officials have noticed an increased in tour players asking for relief, and a debate on whether the ball has broken through the soil. The revised decision will be accompanied by illustrations. --Decision 27-2a/1.5 was revised to allow players to go forward 50 yards without losing their right to return to play a provisional ball. The new edition of "Decisions" includes three new decisions and 59 revised decisions, while 24 decisions were taken out. Pagel said this done for the sake of clarity. Daryl Washington Youth Jersey .9 seconds left, lifting Switzerland to a 1-0 win over Latvia on Wednesday in the Olympic mens hockey opener for both teams. D.J. Humphries Jersey . Calvert and his team of Kyle Kurz, Lucas Van Den Bosch, Brendan Wilson, alternate Matt Dunstone and coach Tom Clasper earned their spot in the playoffs by finishing in third place in the round robin with a 6-3 record.VANCOUVER - B.C. Lions defensive back Dante Marsh has seen the weather forecasts ahead of Sundays CFL West Division semifinal. It doesnt faze him one bit. "If weve got to play at two in the morning on the Moon, Jupiter, Neptune ... then thats where weve got to play," the 10-year veteran said this week. "Im not going to let peripheral things sidetrack me mentally to take me away from the job at hand." While that job wont be taking them out of this world, the Lions (11-7) travel to chilly Regina to meet the Saskatchewan Roughriders (11-7) on Sunday for a playoff game that could see temperatures drop as low as -15 C. Despite the frigid conditions in this years Grey Cup host city, neither team expects the cold to be much of a factor in the contest to decide the Calgary Stampeders opponent in the West final. "Once youre out on the field and running around, a lot of times you dont feel it. Thats not to downplay it," said Lions quarterback Travis Lulay. "(But) a lot of times you can mentally block out the weather. "I dont foresee cold being too big of an issue." Roughriders head coach Corey Chamblin said the conditions could give his team a slight edge, but noted it could also have the opposite effect. "If we start to prepare in our minds that Oh its going to be huge. They cant do this, they cant do that, thats when it becomes a disadvantage," said Chamblin. "Theyve played in this league long enough to understand that its going to be cold this time of year. "Were not looking for advantages, were just looking to do what we need to do, execute and win a game." Whats more likely to be the difference on Sunday is both teams ability to run the football. Saskatchewan running back Kory Sheets finished No. 2 in the league in total yards with 1,598 to go along with 12 touchdowns despite missing two games because of injury. He suited up for two of the Roughriders three games with the Lions — Saskatchewans only victories against B.C. — compiling 228 yards and three touchdowns. "I think hes a very special running back," said Lions defensive end Keron Williams. "For somebody that size to be that nifty ... his centre of gravity is not that low and he can bounce it and go the distance — thats a special player. "Hes definitely circled in our books." Lions head coach Mike Benevides, himself a big proponent of the passing game, said stopping Sheets will be crucial for the No. Sean Weatherspoon Jersey. 1-ranked B.C. defence that was second against the run. "Thats their DNA. Its been that way since Day 1. When they get up ... they really manage the clock well that way by running the football," said Benevides. "The run and the line of scrimmage — its said all the time, the game is won and lost — and thats not going to change on Sunday." Meanwhile, B.C.s ground attack took a nose dive mid-season, failing to register a 100-yard rusher for 11 straight games. But the addition of former NFLer Stefan Logan and the resurgence of Andrew Harris has the Lions back on track after back-to-back 200-yard rushing games to close out the regular season. Harris, who finished third in the CFL this season with 998 yards on the ground, said he expects to find holes against a Saskatchewan defence that finished third overall and third against the rush. "I think we can run the ball against them, I think we can pass against them," said Harris. "Especially with some healthy quarterbacks coming back now, it will be a different game for us." The question of who will play quarterback for the Lions was asked all week, with Benevides refusing to name his starter until he got a better sense of Lulays health. Coming of an injury to his throwing shoulder, Lulay saw his first action in six weeks with a cameo appearance in the regular-season finale against Calgary. The other option is veteran backup Buck Pierce, who rallied the team off the bench against the Edmonton Eskimos in the second last game of the season before starting last week. Benevides said he will decide on his starter by Saturday but added that Lulay has looked good this week. "Hes made those throws that he needs to make," said Benevides. "I just want to see how he feels." Also on the injury front, Roughriders quarterback Darian Durant will be without slotback Chris Getzlaf (knee), but still has plenty of weapons, including fellow 1,000-yard receivers Weston Dressler and Taj Smith. Despite having homefield advantage and the benefit of practising in the elements on a daily basis, Durant said the Roughriders will need a full 60-minute effort to move on against Calgary. "We know that theyre going to come in hungry," said Durant. "If we overlook them at all then we will be going home." cheap nfl jerseys cheap jerseys cheap jerseys cheap jerseys cheap nfl jerseys wholesale jerseys ' ' '
