Brad Bryant will hear the words “defending champion” umpteen times this week. He’ll never get sick of them. When those words have described you only three times in your golf career, you appreciate them more than most. When you’ve come within a stroke of hearing them time and time again, you cherish them when they’re uttered. Bryant will be a happy camper as he defends his title in the Toshiba Classic, a Champions Tour event at the Newport Beach Country Club this week. For threerounds, his first tee shot will be accompanied by those precious words. “As for last year, there is absolutely no question in my mind that the Toshiba tournament was the diving board that sprung me through the year,” Bryant said. “Something happened on those last eight holes – I made fivebirdies on those last eight holes. It was like my world changed. Last year was by far my best year. Both my banker and my wife really liked it, so that was good.” Bryant knows he let a couple more chances to be the defending champion of tournaments slip away, not that he let it consume him. “I had a couple of chances where I could have done better,” Bryant said. “Kansas City is one that stands out. I finished third there, and I made a couple of mistakes there on Sunday with my ball-striking and I got a little impatient. “Last year could have been a little better. However, when you make one million-seven, don’t complain. It was a great year. For me, it was a banner year.” Of course, every year is a fun year for Bryant. His younger brother, Bart (who already has a pair of top-10 finishes on the PGA Tour this year), is eightyears younger. They’ve inspired one another to do well. Bart has battled through injuries, as has Brad. Brad loved winning at the Toshiba Classic, but nothing felt better than watching his brother win on the PGA Tour. “The three victories I’ve had were amazing, but I don’t know if I’ve ever had quite the experience I had watching my brother win at Texas (2004),” Brad Bryant said. “After all he had been through, I got to be there and stand there and congratulate him as he came off the 18th green. It was amazing. “You won’t find anyone who will say a bad thing about Bart, so in that regard, we’re very different,” added Brad Bryant, laughing. When Bart won for the first time in 2004, at age 41, he inspired Brad, then 50, to find his groove on the golf course again. Brad Bryant has a sense of humor, too. That’s why he went with the flow when former PGA Tour player Gary McCord, who also plays on the Champions Tour, gave him the nickname “Dr. Dirt.” McCord said he thought Bryant looked like a guy he saw on a gas commercial, hence the name. Other players began to use the nickname, too, so Bryant embraced it. How could he not? A locker room attendant once told him he respected him so much that he was going to call him “Dr. Dirt” too. He even had “Dirt” stitched on his golf bag, where a player’s name belongs. But not everyone thought it was funny. A California doctor with a landscaping business known as “Dr. Dirt” threatened to sue. That was OK. He liked the sound of “defending champion” better anyway. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Bryant, 52, said his kids liked it, too. All of a sudden, his 15-year-old didn’t mind hanging out with him again. He turned pro in 1976 and played his first full season on the PGA Tour in 1980. Fifteen years later, he finally won the 1995 Walt Disney Classic. Bryant won on the Champions Tour in just his 27th start. Not even two months after winning the Toshiba, he won the Regions Charity Classic. Toshiba set the stage for a splendid year of golf, the best of his career. He was in contention to win several more times, too. He had four second-place finishes, a third-place finish and 10 top-10 finishes in all. Three of his second-place finishes followed the Toshiba victory.
Morelos’ dismissal got Rangers off to a dreadful start Latest Scottish Premiership News Tavernier’s penalty appeared to be enough to give Rangers all three points Gerrard launches furious touchline outburst as horror tackle on Barisic sparks chaos Rangers fans will have been encouraged even further by the club’s progress through the Europa League qualifying rounds, however, this game was Gerrard’s biggest test as Rangers boss to date.They started well and should have taken the lead on four minutes when Jamie Murphy latched onto a through ball but fluffed his lines.On eleven minutes, Gerrard was forced to reshuffle his team’s set-up after Morelos was given a harsh straight red for kicking McKenna after the two clashed off the ball.However, this did not seem to deter Rangers for too long as they took the lead on the half hour through captain Tavernier’s penalty after Windass was hauled to the floor by Ball. 2 2 scrap Allan McGregor needed to tip Niall McGinn’s searching cross away from danger as the visitors went into half-time a goal to the good.The second-half saw Aberdeen have more possession but they failed to penetrate their opponents back line until the third minute of stoppage time when substitute Anderson struck low into the bottom left corner as both sides shared the spoils.LINE-UPSAberdeen XI: Lewis, Ball, Devlin, McKenna (Forrester 31), Considine, Gleeson (May 52), Shinnie, Ferguson, McGinn, Cosgrove (Anderson 71), Mackay-StevenSubs not used: Wright, Campbell, Harrington, CernyRangers XI: McGregor, Tavernier, Katic, Goldson, Flanagan, Arfield, Jack (Ekaria 82), Coulibaly, Murphy (Kent 70), Windass, MorelosSubs not used: Umar, Halliday, McCrorie, Candeias, Alnwick Things got off to an appalling start for Gerrard and co. when Alfredo Morelos was sent off for a kick out off the ball on Dons defender Scott McKenna.Gers managed to regroup from the initial shock and took the lead through Tavernier’s spot-kick after Josh Windass was pulled back by Dominic Ball.The home side improved after the break but failed to create any real clear-cut chances until right at the end when Dons debutante Anderson latched onto Andrew Considine’s knock down to earn Derek McInnes’ men a draw.There has been a great deal of excitement since Gerrard was appointed manager of the Glasgow-based side in the summer. A stoppage-time Aberdeen equaliser prevented Rangers boss Steven Gerrard from getting off to a winning start in his first Scottish Premiership game in charge of the club.Substitute Bruce Anderson’s neat finish cancelled out James Tavernier’s first-half penalty in a game where the visitors played most of the game with ten men.

Chelsea and Manchester City are battling to sign Napoli’s Argentine striker Ezequiel Lavezzi, according to The Sun.Lavezzi, apparently rated at £20m, has been strongly linked with Paris St-Germain, while Inter Milan are also believed to have shown an interest.But it is claimed that the player’s representatives are holding out for offers from the Premier League’s big spendersThe Sun also pick up on comments attributed to Yaya Toure’s agent by the Spanish media, which appeared to suggest the Ivorian is looking to quit City and that Chelsea are one of the clubs that could sign him.Following reports in the Italian press that former England boss Fabio Capello is in the frame for the Chelsea manager’s job, the Daily Mirror suggest he could be installed at Stamford Bridge as early as next week.Capello, 66, is said to be looking for a three-year deal worth around £6m per season and could lay the foundations for Pep Guardiola to succeed him in 2014 – although Guardiola is also reported to be a target for Liverpool.The Sun say Capello would be prepared to accept even a one-year deal with Guardiola then taking over.The Daily Telegraph suggest Italian media reports that Capello is odds-on to become Chelsea boss are wide of the mark, but that he is pushing himself forward for the job as well as weighing up a highly-lucrative offer to be the head coach of the United Arab Emirates.The Daily Express also report that Capello, who still has a house in London, wants the Blues to appoint him.Meanwhile, The Sun report that Salomon Kalou is keen to rejoin his former club Feyenoord.Kalou, whose Chelsea contract expires this summer, is quoted as saying: “Feyenoord can call me any time — they are the first name on my list.“Let me win the Champions League final and then I will think about Feyenoord. Yes, I’m serious.”Video: Will Chelsea be crowned European champions?See also:Chelsea are not like Arsenal and shouldn’t leave Stamford BridgeA move to the ‘Battersea Bridge’ make sense for ChelseaFollow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebook
