But the Australian siblings, who teamed up to lead their country to gold in the 4x100 freestyle relay, couldnt hang on.Bronte faded to fourth, and Cate dropped all the way to sixth at the finish.Instead, it was Manuel -- her fingernails painted red, white and blue -- who touched at the same time as 16-year-old Oleksiak, the youngest swimmer in the field.Manuel broke down in tears when she recognized her historic achievement in a sport that still has few African-Americans.Kevin Mchale Jersey .com) - The Calgary Flames aim to bounce back from their first regulation home loss of the campaign on Friday night when they host a Detroit Red Wings club that they swept in three meetings a season ago. Boston Celtics Jerseys . Louis Blues absence from top spot in the TSN. .4 million title. Ryan Riess emerged with the title after a session in which he started behind, but used expert skill to gather the chips to his side amid the unpredictability of no-limit Texas Hold em.

So are 20 club pros, who for one week of the year get treated on equal ground as the best golfers in the world.They drive the same model Mercedes-Benz as courtesy cars. Lockers are in alphabetical order, and it doesnt matter if they give lessons or make millions in PGA Tour earnings. Club pros will have the same tee times as tour players when the PGA Championship starts Thursday.When I go back next week to work Ill be a club pro again, but this week Im out here playing these guys and thats how you have to look at it, Ryan Helminen, a club pro at Ridgeway Country Club in Neenah, Wisconsin said. Im another player in the field.Helminen is competing in his third straight PGA Championship, qualifying with the other 19 club pros through the PGA Professional Championship in June. The club pros will join the 136 tour players for the final major of the season, which has the strongest field of the year.Only when the championship begins are the club pros at a disadvantage at Baltusrol.They spend most of the year teaching golf, not spending hours working on their own games or competing against the best from January to December. And it shows. No club pro has ever won the PGA Championship, and the best finish was third place in 1971 by Tommy Bolt, who once played the tour and won the 1958 U.S. Open.The last top 10 by a club pro was another former player -- Sam Snead -- in 1973. Not since 1994 has a club pro finished in the top 30.Making the cut is no easy task. Only one club pro has managed that in the last two years. That was Brian Gaffney, who finished 71st out of the 77 players who made the cut last year at Whistling Straits. He earned $17,900 for the week and provided inspiration for the others.The club pros are very good players and I think youd be very surprised how well club pros have done, and theyve had good showings in the past, and so hopefully we can build on that. And hopefully as time goes on more club pros can make the cut and be competitive, Helminen said.One golfer who has made the transition from club pro to tour regular is five-year PGA Tour player Jim Herman.Herman, 38, was a club pro for about four years before he earned a spot on the Tour in 2008, and was financially backed by Donald Trump. Herman was an assistant pro at TTrump National in New Jersey, moved up to the big tour in 2011 and won his first PGA Tour event this year at the Houston Open. Gordon Hayward Jersey. Every year it was a struggle, Herman said. You can make it here, but are you good enough to stay? Are you good enough to win? But I put in my time and worked really hard and Ive been able to ring out a pretty good career so far.Herman acknowledged that there was a little bit of a divide between the club pros and the tour players in terms of talent, but everyone on the tour feels indebted to the club pros who helped them grow their own games.Obviously were looked at differently than the PGA member here, the host clubs, and at every club around the country, and they have a different role and a different job. We are the players, but they are the teachers and they are the ones who are growing the game, Herman said.Rob Labritz, PGA director of golf at GlenArbor Golf Club in Bedford Hills, New York is a club pro and recognizes the distinct line between his level and a tour player. But Labritz said he understands his place and is just happy to be out on the course playing his game.Would I like to do this day in and day out and be treated like a rockstar like Mick Jagger? Oh yeah, Labritz said.And while Labritz is getting the top-level treatment at Baltusrol, he said the fans who line the fairways arent there to see him. They might not even know who he without seeing his name on his bag or on the back of his caddies bib.They are here to see Jason Day, Labritz said.Labritz played on the Canadian Tour full time from 2003 to 2005 before the passing of his father and going through a divorce made him rethink his career path.Sure I would love to practice 8 to 10 hours a day, but I cant because that doesnt pay the bills for me, Labritz said. Running the club does. I dont know if I could ever be a full-time player because I truly enjoy teaching my clients and being at the club.The 45-year-old is now a husband as well as a father to two. Labritz was the only club pro to make the cut at the PGA Championship in 2010.You got to keep telling yourself its just another shot and its OK what happens, Labritz said. If I miss one or two its OK, because Im a club pro. Wholesale NFL Jerseys Wholesale Nike NFL Jerseys NFL Jerseys From China Cheap Nike Basketball Jerseys Wholesale Hockey Jerseys China Nike Baseball Jerseys Cheap College Jerseys ChinaCheap Football Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Canada Wholesale NHL Jerseys Canada Wholesale Nike MLB Jerseys Canada Cheap NBA Jerseys Authentic Canada Stitched Soccer Jerseys Canada Cheap Jerseys Canada NFL ' ' '
