Biden looks set to expand U.S. troop presence in Afghanistan

If Brooks Koepka looks a bit awkward trying to read putts on the slippery greens of Augusta National, with his right leg locked to the side or extended behind him as opposed to a traditional squat, cut him a break He had surgery to repair a dislocated patella three weeks ago

But here he is, halfway through the usual six-week recovery, trying to walk perhaps the most rugged course in professional golf

Getting out of some side lies brings pain, which is why he plans to lie down with a 3 wood off the tee at the 13th par-5 hole to prevent the extreme side slope from further down the fairway It also hurts to walk downhill, which he cannot avoid

“It puts all the pressure on the kneecap,” said four-time major champion “I have a bunch of – I don’t even know what they put in there – things going on in there that can cause pain where the corset is. more sensitive, so it will pull It will hurt downhill “

“I can’t bend over my knee is wrong” said Koepka “I mean, this is the biggest stress you are going to have on your kneecap I don’t have much movement in my Knee Down, I can bring it to about 90 degrees and that’s about it But on your way down (to read the greens) it’s going to look funny, I know that But what are you going to do? ”

Koepka needed three hours of physiotherapy just to get him ready to play a nine-hole practice round Now he has to walk 18… maybe four days in a row

But his coach says he scratched the ball and he’s still looking so good And expectations haven’t changed for a guy who won two US Openings, two PGA Championships and was a finalist in the Masters 2019

“Always the same”, said Koepka “Yeah, to win That’s the only reason I’m here If I didn’t think I could win, I wouldn’t be here”

23-year-old England fan Joe Long also plays injured this week He was in South Africa six weeks ago and thought it would be fun to try surfing for the first time

“The surf scene is big,” Long said of the Cape. “The ones I was on weren’t big It was my first time I sort of got a head start on me also I enjoyed it, but my friend took us to the deeper ones, and, yes, just a little messed up “

Augusta National President Fred Ridley didn’t wait to be asked about the controversial new Georgia voting law that forced Major League Baseball to withdraw the All-Star Game from Atlanta this He addressed it during his opening remarks at his annual Masters press conference

“I believe, like everyone in our organization, that the right to vote is fundamental in our democratic society,” said Ridley “No one should be disadvantaged in exercising this right and it is essential that all citizens have confidence in the electoral process It’s fundamental to who we are as a people

“We realize that views and opinions on this law differ and that there have been calls for boycott and other punitive measures Unfortunately, these actions often impose the heaviest burdens on the most vulnerable in our society And in this case that includes our friends and neighbors here in Augusta who are at the very center of the positive difference we are trying to make”

A day earlier, a groundbreaking ceremony was held for a new community center and the headquarters of the Boys & Girls Club in the area, which was funded by a $ 10 million grant from Augusta National

Jon Rahm arrived at Augusta National on Wednesday, four days after his wife, Kelley, gave birth to a son, Kepa Cahill Rahm

People instantly assumed that Rahm, a Spaniard, was a fan of England’s Chelsea football team. Kepa Arrizabalaga is a Spanish goalkeeper who currently plays for Chelsea; Gary Cahill is a defenseman who played there from 2012 to 2019

It turns out that Kepa is a Basque name, representative of Rahm’s heritage And Cahill is Kelley’s maiden name

“When we were looking at Basque names,” said Rahm, “we just had to find one that she could pronounce, and this is the one we found that she really liked. And we used Cahill as middle name because in the Spanish tradition you usually take your father’s last name and your mother’s last name, and I didn’t want her to lose that “

He’s played well on tour, with a pair of second places this season (including the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines) And then there’s what happened when Kevin Kisner took him from the across the border to his hometown of Aiken, SC, last Saturday to play the Palmetto Golf Club

“He made nine birdies in 15 holes,” Kisner said, “and beat my brains out on my home track”

Australia’s Adam Scott, the 2013 Masters champion, was asked about the fast and firm conditions in the practice rounds and if he hopes the rain forecast for later in the week will materialize to smooth the course

“No, not really,” said Scott “I think it would be a shame if that was the case It’s been a while since we’ve had a really dry golf course I think this will be fun for everyone. world to play but also to watch to see it play a bit dry and see some moves and some strategy It has been a few years, at least in my memory, that we haven’t had to think about this here “
