Sky Sports golf pundit Gary Christian reflects on a clinical win for Branden Grace at Hilton Head Island, while Luke Donalds performance can mark a turning point in his PGA Tour career. Morgan Brian Jersey . There are some that feel the RBC Heritage deserves more of a prime slot on the PGA Tour calendar rather than the week following the Masters, particularly as it is played at one of the more picturesque locations and is a firm favourite among the players.But I think its a terrific spot for the tournament on the schedule and the strength of the field every year proves that. And, after after the pressure cooker atmosphere at Augusta National, its kind of on a gentle simmer at Hilton Head. Branden Grace closed with a superb 66 to claim a two-shot victory Obviously the tournament would attract a few more star names if it wasnt the week after a major, but I think the organisers - and the PGA Tour - will be happy with the turn out. The awareness of golf among the general public is so high after the Masters, and viewers cant wait to tune in and see Hilton Head Island in all its glory.It was Branden Grace who took the title after a testing four days in blustery conditions on the South Carolina coast, and his final-round 66 was clinical. He played the best on the final day and won the tournament, and thats how it should be. Grace played clinical golf on the final day and was a worthy champion Branden was the stand-out player from the last five groups, and his mindset was particularly impressive. He played aggressively to get the lead, and once in front, his course-management was superb on the back nine. He birdied 11 and 12 and made a number of sensible, stress-free pars - his only blemish coming at the 17th when he bunkered his tee shot and missed a six-footer for par.The Harbour Town Golf Links is a tough course when the conditions are firm and fast like we saw, and its even tougher when you have to chase. But defending a lead by playing cautiously is also easier said than done, so what Branden Grace achieved certainly consolidates his credentials as a world-class golfer. Luke Donald made a welcome return to form and led after 54 holes Luke Donald led after 54 holes on one of his favourite tracks, but he looked a little uncertain at times during his final-round 71 and finished two behind Grace. Maybe that was down to Luke not having been in that situation for some time. When you havent contended on the PGA Tour for that length of time, it doesnt matter who you are - theres going to be an element of doubt when youre trying to get over the line.And when your swing is based on rhythm and tempo like Lukes is, it makes it that much more difficult to maintain down the stretch. He didnt hit the ball as well as he could on Sunday, but he hung in there and a tie for second place will do his confidence the world of good. Donald battled hard in the final round, but he came up just short Luke kept scrambling pars to keep himself in contention, but once Grace was in the clubhouse on nine under, everyone else was effectively playing for second. Luke managed to grind it out despite not being at his best, and that result will go a long way to helping him climb back up the world rankings.His chipping and putting were in good order, and he will take a lot of positives out of the week. Theres nothing like contending for titles on the PGA Tour, and Luke will be better prepared for next time hes right in the mix. The challenge for him now is to keep that momentum going over the next few weeks, and this could be a big turning point in his career. Bryson DeChambeau was hugely impressive as he finished tied for fourth in his first tournament as a pro Bryson DeChambeau finished tied for fourth in his first tournament as a professional having been the leading amateur at the Masters, and I believe this kid is the real deal. He plays with a huge amount of confidence, and he has the chance to do something really special.And his impact on the game could be significant as well. Weve not seen many like him before in terms of his scientific approach to golf, and it has certainly attracted a lot of attention. Having all of your irons the same length is something new in the professional game, and it might not be long before we see others exploring that set-up. DeChambeaus confident and scientific approach to the game has generated huge interest Bryson is fascinating to listen to when he talks about the science and mechanics of his game, and the way he conducts himself is refreshing. He has a huge belief in his methods and his ability, and he clearly feels its only a matter of time before he is one of the leading players on the PGA Tour.He pocketed $260,000 for finishing fourth, and retaining his card for next season is a mere formality. I truly think he can win this year and lock up his playing rights in one go! He has the full array of tools, and he appears to be more mentally prepared for success than most rookies.Grace, Donald and DeChambeau are all in action again this week as we head to San Antonio for the Valero Texas Open, and the TPC San Antonio can be a brutally difficult golf course. When the wind gets up there, its one of the toughest courses on the PGA Tour. Next stop is the Valero Texas Open, played at one of the toughest tracks on the PGA Tour Its not as tight as Hilton Head but, unlike most courses in the United States, theres a lot of trouble to be found if you miss the fairways. Theres scrubland, thick bushes and plenty of trees on both sides, as well as thicker rough than the players are normally used to.At just under 7,500 yards long, its also one of the longer courses on Tour, and if the wind starts gusting at 20mph - which is highly likely - its a really tough test. I played it twice and it was just too much for me. There is much trouble to be found if you stray offline at TPC San Antonio It has been softened a little as a lot of players found it too difficult when it first appeared on the schedule, but it is still a supreme test of ability. Having said that, it is a great mix, with a couple of short par-threes and a few par-fours that can be attacked. Accuracy off the tee is going to be a huge advantage this week, and with the course being so long, well see a lot more drivers hit than at Hilton Head. But if youre going into the greens from the three-inch rough too often, it will be very difficult to be competitive. Also See: How does Brysons debut compare?

There was little fanfare, though, when the Yankees captain was taken out of his final regular-season Subway Series game in the eighth inning. Jeter watched the last four outs from the bench, pulled off the field during a double switch Thursday night as the Yankees held off the Mets 1-0. Megan Rapinoe Jersey .The Toronto Raptors guard, who will represent the Eastern Conference at the All-Star Game in New Orleans on Sunday, says he doesnt complain in the face of adversity "because I know this little girl is just happy for anything. http://www.uswntproshop.com/c-22-jaelene-hinkle-usa-jersey.aspx .Y. - Through three quarters, the Brooklyn Nets could not shake the NBAs worst team.CHICAGO -- About the only pitch that Chris Sale wouldnt make Monday night was his case for the American Leagues Cy Young Award. Then again, if he keeps pitching like he has so far this season, he wont have to say much. Sale pitched seven effective innings in his first outing since the All-Star break and Adam Dunn had two RBIs and scored a run to lead the Chicago White Sox to a 3-1 victory over the slumping Kansas City Royals on Monday night. Sale (9-1) wasnt at his best, allowing seven hits and a walk in seven innings, but he worked out of jams in the fourth and sixth innings. He struck out eight and now has allowed three runs or less in 14 of his 15 starts this season. Those certainly appear to be Cy Young-worthy numbers, right? "Like Ive always said, I dont pay too much attention to that," Sale said. "I have a job to do and I have to focus on doing that and playing games. Were right in the hunt right now, so these are the dog days and you have to bear down now. Nows not the time to be thinking about yourself or some trophy or whatever." Chicago manager Robin Ventura, though, didnt hesitate to respond when asked if Sale was a legitimate candidate for the award despite missing a month earlier in the season. "Oh, yeah, absolutely," Ventura said. "Theres no reason why he shouldnt be in the discussion. I dont care if he missed a month or not. Hes good." Dunn went 1-for-2 with a pair of walks as the White Sox for the third time in four games since the break. Danny Valencia went 1-for-2 with a RBI for Kansas City, which has dropped four straight and seven of eight. The Royals had a team meeting before the game, but couldnt turn around their fortunes as they dropped two games below .500 (48-50). Royals starter Jeremy Guthrie (5-9) gave up three runs on five hits in six innings to get the loss. He had been 4-0 against the White Sox with the Royals before Monday. "I thought Guthrie threw the ball all right," Kansas City manager Ned Yost said. "The first inning they had some well-placed groundballs. He was a little off command-wise in the first inning. Ended up hitting two guys by mistake but still kind of limited tthe damage there. Sam Mewis Jersey. " The White Sox took a 2-0 lead in the first inning as the first four batters reached base and then Dunn singled up the middle against the shift -- essentially hitting the ball to the normal shortstop position -- to score both Adam Eaton and Alexei Ramirez. The Royals trimmed the lead in half in the fourth. Alex Gordon singled with one out, stole second and then scored on a two-out single by Valencia. The next batter, Alcides Escobar, doubled down the left-field line, but Valencia was nailed at the plate as left-fielder Alejandro De Aza and Ramirez got the ball to catcher Tyler Flowers for the putout to end the inning. "Thats huge," Sale said of the play at the plate. "Thats a game-changer, a game saver, just gives us momentum. It was awesome." The White Sox regained the two-run edge in the sixth as Dunn scored on a sacrifice fly by Gordon Beckham to make it 3-1. That was plenty of a cushion for Sale, who has allowed a total of three runs in 23 ? innings in his last three starts. Ronald Belisario pitched and eighth and Jake Petricka worked the ninth for his fourth save. "I think Im just trying to get better day in and day out," Sale said. NOTES: Royals 1B Eric Hosmer was scratched about an hour before game time with a right hand contusion. He was hit on the hand with a pitch by Boston Red Sox pitcher Jon Lester in Sundays game at Fenway Park. . White Sox pitching coach Don Cooper is suffering from vertigo and missed a second straight game on Monday. Bullpen coach Bobby Thigpen took his place. ... K.C.s Salvador Perez was back in the lineup after sitting out Sunday with a groin strain. He originally was going to catch but switched to DH when Hosmer was scratched. "He feels much better," manager Ned Yost said. "Hes not a speed demon to begin with. Its still probably going to affect him a little bit running, but he can catch and swing and do everything else." ... Abreu doubled in the seventh to extend his hitting streak to 12 games. ...
