substance list for next year
World No.1 Jason Day and former Masters champion Adam Scott have fallen two shots short as Patrick Reed claimed the opening US PGA Tour Playoff event at Bethpage Black.Day shot a two-under-69 and Scott could only manage an even par round of 71 as the pair finished at seven under in a tie for fourth in The Barclays.Reed, who started the final round one behind Rickie Fowler, was able to put together a round of 70 to finish at nine-under, one clear of Sean OHair (66) and Emiliano Grillo (69).Reed claimed his fifth US Tour win and first since January 2015.Day was left to lament another week of wayward driving off the tee, finishing last in accuracy of the 79 players who made the cut.I dont think there was a tee shot that I felt comfortable over to be honest, Day said.Every time I was standing over the ball, I couldnt feel like it was going to be a good shot. I was fighting a left shot and I was fighting a right shot.With everything done, stats-wise, I didnt give myself an opportunity off the tee.If I give myself more opportunities to the green, if Im in the fairways, I might have had a good chance.Even though I did hit a lot of greens today, I didnt hit them close enough.Day did provide one highlight in the final round, making a curling 71-foot birdie putt on the 15th to give himself a chance at a late run.But a three-putt for bogey from a similar distance on the next hole ended his hopes.Scott started poorly with back-to-back bogeys but found three birdies in his next seven holes to get back into contention.But two bogeys early on the back nine had him swimming upstream.John Senden ensured he will survive at least one more week in the playoffs with a final round three-under-68 moving him back to even par for the tournament and a tie for 31st.The playoffs are now down to 100 players heading to the Deutsche Bank Championship next week with Day, Scott and Senden to be joined by Marc Leishman and Aaron Baddeley at TPC Boston.Reed ended a frustrating run when he survived two late bogeys.Fellow American Sean OHair (66) and Argentine Emiliano Grillo (69) were joint second on eight-under.Reeds victory was his fifth PGA tour title and first in 19 months. It also secured a spot on the United States team for next months Ryder Cup.He also vaulted to the top of the FedExCup points list after the first of the four playoff events.I have worked pretty hard with my coach for the past couple of weeks, the 26-year-old said in a greenside interview.The game shows Im moving in the right direction but there are some things I need to work on. Bobby Massie Jersey . Bryzgalov stopped 25 shots on Saturday in the Oklahoma City Barons 4-1 victory over the Abbotsford Heat. The Oilers signed Bryzgalov to a one-year $2 million contract last Friday after shedding payroll by dealing defenceman Ladislav Smid to the Flames. Gary Fencik Jersey .Y. -- Jayna Hefford scored the winning goal Friday as Canada survived a scare with a 4-3 win over Sweden at the Four Nations womens hockey tournament. . -- Eastern Kentucky thrives off creating havoc for others. Mike Singletary Jersey . -- Arizona raced out to a big lead and did not back off, hitting the accelerator instead. Nick Kwiatkoski Jersey . -- Bryant McKinnie came out of his stance and lowered his shoulder into a practice squad player, causing a crisp thud to reverberate in the Miami Dolphins practice bubble. MONTREAL -- The World Anti-Doping Agency has released its 2017 list of prohibited substances for athletes, adding a drug used for treating attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and eating disorders to its catalog of banned stimulants.The substance, known chemically as lisdexamfetamine, is part of a family of drugs that stimulate the central nervous system.Nicomorphine, an opioid analgesic drug available in parts of Europe and which is converted to morphine following administration, was added to the list of banned narcotics.WADA noted in the list it released early Friday that it was putting codeine on its monitoring program so that researchers could establish patterns of use for possible performance enhancement.All athletes around the world are held to these standards and there can be no tolerance for people who intentionally break the rules, WADA President Craig Reedie said in a statement. Updated annually, the list is released three months ahead of taking effect so that all stakeholders -- in particular athletes and their entourage -- have ample time to familiarize themselves with the list and its modifications.The most-discussed addition in 2016 remained on the prohibited substance list for next year.Meldonium was added to the list from last Jan. 1 and resulted in a two-year ban for Russian tennis star Maria Sharapova, who was among hundreds of athlletes who tested positive at the start of the year in results that forced WADA to conduct more research on the substance and extend no-fault findings to athletes who tested positive for low concentrations of the drug.dddddddddddd.Sharapova tested positive for the endurance-boosting drug at the Australian Open in Melbourne in January and is appealing her ban.The Latvian-made drug was used in parts of eastern Europe to treat heart conditions but was not approved for use in the United States. It increases blood flow, which improves exercise capacity by carrying more oxygen to the muscles. There is significant debate among doping experts over whether meldonium, also known as Mildronate, actually enhances performance.Olivier Niggli, WADA director general, said the latest list was published after nine months of reviews.Experts examine such sources as scientific and medical research, trends, and intelligence gathered from law enforcement and pharmaceutical companies in order to stay ahead of those that wish to cheat, Niggli said. It is vital that all athletes take the necessary time to consult the list, and that they contact their respective anti-doping organizations if they have any doubts as to the status of a substance or method.
