The BMW PGA Championship is one of a number of events set for a prize boost in 2017 as part of the European Tour’s new money-spinning Rolex Series. Deivi Garcia Jersey . The series will feature a minimum of seven tournaments in locations across the world, including the traditional season-ending DP World Tour Championship, all offering prize money of at least $7m.Beginning at Wentworth in May, the series will head back to the UK in July for the Irish Open and the Scottish Open before the Italian Open in October. The stretch of tournaments will also include the three current Final Series events in Turkey, South Africa and Dubai, with European Tour chief executive Keith Pelley confident of more events being added in the future. The BMW PGA Championship will have increased prize money on offer in 2017. We are delighted to unveil the Rolex Series today and we are committed to developing and building on it over the coming years, Pelley said.                                    Im going to caveat that by saying a minimum of seven tournaments, as we expect to have eight or nine in 2017. Were currently under discussions with some other partners as we speak.

Six months half price Upgrade to Sky Sports to watch Man Utd v Arsenal on Saturday and get the first six months half price Im very grateful for the European Tour and Rolex including the Irish Open in this Rolex Series, McIlroy said. The Irish Opens been given a great date as well. Its two weeks before the Open on a links golf course (Portstewart).Were really excited about it. It doesnt change my schedule that much but it gives guys an incentive to maybe play a little bit more on this side of the pond leading up to the Open Championship and hopefully get some great fields. Rory McIlroy has welcomed the new series Its getting more and more difficult to play two tours. With the regulations that the PGA Tour are putting upon us and with how great the events are becoming over here, its hard to jump back and forth and play tournaments.So I think you might see more guys spending prolonged periods in either/or, because jumping back and forth, you can do it for so long, but in the long run, it just doesnt work too well.

The 17-year-old native of Marystown, N.L., pulled out of Skate Canada International last month in Saint John, N.B., with the same problem. Aaron Judge Jersey . - Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco is not a fan of his teams use of the wildcat formation, saying "it makes you look like a high school offence. http:///...rsey-large-204i.html . Argentina winger Ezequiel Lavezzi and France midfielder Blaise Matuidi scored, with star striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic setting up both despite having a poor game by his high standards. Forward Eduardo gave Ajaccio the lead in the sixth minute after being set up by right winger Benjamin Andre, and the Corsican side looked comfortable in the first half, with the lively Johan Cavalli causing problems with his probing runs from midfield. No. 6 Ohio State | No. 8 Michigan | Top 25No. 7: StanfordLast Season: 12-2 (8-1 Pac-12 North)The Cardinal barely missed the playoff last year -- and are even stronger now. The reason? Christian McCaffrey. The Stanford back broke Barry Sanders record for all-purpose yards in a season (3,864), and while QB Keller Chryst (nine career passes) and top WR Michael Rector (39.9 ypg) are not rated as highly, McCaffrey should be enough to keep the offense at pace. The Cardinal D was inexperienced in 2015 -- just three returners -- but all three units on defense this year rank in my top 20. The schedule is tough, though: underdogs at Washington (+3) and Notre Dame (+3), along with toss-ups at UCLA and Oregon.IN IF... It makes it through October unscathed. In the first six games, Stanford faces four teams in FPIs top 20 (USC, UCLA, Washington and Notre Dame).OUT IF... McCaffrey somehow isnt a Heisman finalist. With a new QB, left tackle, left guard and center, Stanford will again need huge production from McCaffrey.Stanfords chances to win each game 09.02 vs. Kansas State: 85.2% 09.17 vs. USC: 47.5% 09.24 @ UCLA: 32.4% 09.30 @ Washington: 31.4% 10.08 vs. Washington State: 74.0% 10.15 @ Notre Dame: 33.2% 10.22 vs. Colorado: 83.7% 10.29 @ Arizona: 47.7% 11.05 vs. Oregon State: 90.0% 11.12 @ Oregon: 46.2% 11.19 @ Cal: 64.0% 11.26 vs. Rice: 97.4%Armed with the best player in college football, Christian McCaffrey, and led by a masterful coach, David Shaw, its a not a question of if Stanford will eventually win a national title, its a queestion of when and an 11-1 regular-season record should make it possible this year. Reggie Jackson Jersey Large. . -- Kyle BonaguraThe Cardinal enter the year with the nations longest streak of games with 30-plus points (13). Despite a quarterback TBD and questions on both sides of the ball, Stanford has earned the benefit of the doubt as the leagues top ranked team and a 10-2 record seems realistic. Having McCaffrey doesnt hurt, either.?-- Kevin GemmellChristian McCaffrey -- there doesnt need to be much of an explanation past him. A 9-3 season might not look too incredible until fully understanding how tough of a schedule McCaffrey and his team will face in 2016. -- Chantel JenningsIts important to remember that the Cardinal have lost their quarterback, their leading tackler and over half of both lines. Star power that begins with McCaffrey will help assuage some of the talent drain, but it wont be easy sledding against one of the toughest road-heavy schedules in the country, so a 9-3 finish seems solid here.?-- David LombardiThe Cardinal were picked to win the Pac-12 because theyve won the conference three out of the past four years and were never picked to win it, so sportswriters decided to hedge their bets, no matter that Stanford has big questions. Still, with Shaw and McCaffrey, the Cardinal should be able to take the conference with a 10-2 record.?-- Ted MillerNo. 6 Ohio State | No. 8 Michigan | Top 25 ' ' '
