Tiger Woods Withdraws From PGA Championship After One of the Worst Rounds of His Career

Tiger Woods withdrew from the PGA Championship on Saturday following one of the worst rounds of his career at a major, carding a nine-over 79.

That left the 46-year-old 12 over par and tied for last among the 79 players to make the halfway cut and his subsequent withdrawal came as no surprise.

Tournament officials had announced while Woods was still on the course that he would not conduct a full slate of post-round interviews.

When asked by a designated pool reporter if he would play on Sunday, the 15-time major winner said: “Well, I’m sore. I know that for a fact.

“We’ll do some work and see how it goes.”

Woods had clearly been in pain from the right leg which was injured so severely in a car accident in February last year that he feared it might have to be amputated.

He remarkably returned to action 10 months later and finished second with son Charlie in the PNC Championship, before making his top-level return in last month’s Masters.

Here We Go: Transgender Skateboarder Takes Top Spot in Women’s Red Bull Competition – as Real Woman Skater Who Came Second Says ‘I Deserved to Be First’

Video shows transgender skateboarder Lillian Gallagher standing triumphantly atop the winner’s podium at last year’s Red Bull Cornerstone skating competition – a victory that saw the female runner-up slam the contest as unfair.

Footage taken from the 2021 final of the event – which sees top skaters from the Midwest compete at the region’s best indoor skateparks – shows Gallagher gladly accepting her trophy at the top of the stage, as the second- and third-place winners stand on.

The victory at the final in Lincoln, Nebraska, held in December, saw Gallagher awarded $5,000, after sealing wins in both the event’s main competition and its ‘Best Trick’ contest.

Now, however, runner-up Taylor Silverman – who was awarded just over half that sum – says that award should be hers.

‘I am a female athlete,’ Silverman, a 27-year-old professional skater from Kalamazoo, Michigan, wrote in a scathing post published to Instagram Tuesday, in which she slammed Red Bull for allowing a trans woman complete in an all-female competition.

‘I have been skateboarding for eleven years and competing for several years. I have been in three different contests with trans women, two of which I placed second,’ Silverman said

‘At the last contest series I did for Redbull, I placed second.’

Silverman, who says she has been skateboarding for 11 years, proceeded to break down the winnings split amongst the three contestants whom had medaled, while appealing to Red Bull to rescind Gallagher’s win.

Another Shameful Night for Soccer: Palace Boss Patrick Vieira Attacks Fan After Being Taunted During Pitch Invasion at Everton While Swindon Players Are Punched at Port Vale – Just Hours After Nottingham Forest Fan Was Jailed for Headbutting Striker

More fan violence broke out in a series of pitch invasions last night where Patrick Vieira was seen kicking an Everton fan who repeatedly taunted him and Swindon Town players were attacked by Port Vale supporters celebrating their playoff semi-final victory on penalties.

The Everton supporter involved in the skirmish had filmed himself abusing Mr Vieira and giving him the middle finger before the Crystal Palace manager eventually kicked out, sending the moron tumbling to the ground.

Thousands of people had ran on to the pitch a Goodison Park last night after Everton’s extraordinary 3-2 win over Crystal Palace helped Frank Lampard’s team avoid relegation. But Palace’s players and manager were left totally exposed and were not properly protected by stewards or police.

It was another shameful night for football in a week where Nottingham Forest fan Robert Biggs was jailed for 24 weeks for headbutting Sheffield Utd striker Billy Sharp on Tuesday night.

And Sharp’s fellow Blades striker Oli McBurnie has now been told to speak to police after he was accused of stamping on a Forest fan during the same pitch invasion.

As the football season comes to a crescendo, there was also violence at Wednesday’s Northampton’s playoff clash with Mansfield where a Cobblers fans threw a flare at opposition players after confronting them on the pitch when they went through. Luton Town boss Nathan Jones said he had been abused as Huddersfield fans ran on to celebrate their team’s win on Monday. And Everton fans were also accused of racially abusing the families of Brentford players when they lost 3-2 on Sunday.

As clubs were told to get a grip on invasions – and a police officer was even seen playing football with fans on the pitch at Goodison Park last night – it emerged:

Patrick Vieira faces an FA investigation after kicking out at a fan on the night Everton celebrated securing their Premier League status. He was taunted by several fans. After initially walking away from one supporter, who had been waving a phone in his face, Vieira turned back and made a grab for the youngster before kicking him to the ground;
Port Vale beat Swindon Town in a topsy-turvy penalty shootout in the League 2 playoff semi-final last night. But in the pitch invasion that followed, the unprotected Swindon team was surrounded by fans and a melee broke out;
Brentford are preparing the biggest police operation in their history for Sunday’s final Premier League game of the season at home to Leeds amid fears that travelling fans will go on the rampage if relegated. The club’s special operation includes increasing the number of Met Police officers on duty from about 100 to 800;
The week’s events have led football bosses to threaten clubs with sanctions in an effort to curb the disgraceful behaviour which has plagued multiple tiers of the game this week. Clubs could face stadium closures as a result of the violence.

In the Premier League, Crystal Palace manager Patrick Vieira is facing an FA investigation after appearing to kick out at a fan on the night Everton celebrated securing their Premier League status.

Footage emerged of Vieira seeming to lash out at a home supporter who was part of a mass pitch invasion following the Toffees’ 3-2 comeback win on Thursday night.

The fan who was involved seemingly posted a video of the incident on Twitter with the footage showing someone putting a middle finger in the face of Vieira, who then reacts.

Asked about the incident after the match, Vieira said: ‘I’ve got nothing to say about that.’ Thousands of jubilant Everton supporters who had seen their side secure Premier League survival invaded the pitch following the match.
