Adam Scotts decision to skip the Olympic Games in Rio later this year has been criticised by greats from the world of sport. The world No 7 has decided not to represent Australia in Brazil, citing a busy schedule for his decision to miss the tournament as golf makes a return to the Olympics after a 112-year absence.Reaction to Scotts decision was swift and, in the main, negative with golfing great Jack Nicklaus among those critical of the 35-year-old. I think thats sad. I think its sad for the Olympics and for the game of golf, Nicklaus said.I dont know Adams circumstances, so I couldnt comment on what hes dealing with. Obviously, he felt like he couldnt play, and if he felt that way, I understand. But its unfortunate. Jack Nicklaus feels it is sad Scott is not going to the Games Johnny Miller was also critical of Scott, adding: Playing for your country is a lot bigger than playing for yourself.I would say I dont care how tired you are, and I wouldnt even care where you place in the tournament, but you need to be there to represent your country.The reaction from Australian swimming great Dawn Fraser, a gold medal winner at three Games from 1956 to 1964, was more savage. Triple gold medalist Dawn Fraser was savage in her criticism of the world No 7 Well done Adam great to put your country on hold so that you can fulfil your own schedule, Fraser, 78, wrote on Facebook.How much money do you want in life. I guess working three jobs a week to secure my place as a Olympic swimmer has given me the strength to say what I feel about sportsmen and women that do this.I am still trying to survive at 78 years of age but a very proud Australian. Fraser also accused Scott of not showing much for your country. Also See: No Olympics for Scott Bruce reviews 25 years on Sky PGA Tour Schedule World Rankings Nike Vapormax Miehet .

Nike Vapormax Kengät . -- Augusta James of Bath, Ont. Vapormax 2019 Suomi . -- The Chiefs have signed seven players to reserve/future contracts, including running back Joe McKnight, a former fourth-round pick of the New York Jets.ARLINGTON, Texas -- Martin Perez kept his pitches low in the zone and got plenty of help from the Texas defence. Perez threw eight scoreless innings with the benefit of four double-play grounders, plus two runners thrown out trying to steal a base, and the Rangers got a series-clinching 1-0 victory over the Houston Astros on Sunday. "That happens when you throw all your pitches down and you get a lot of groundballs," Perez said. "If you can throw strikes with runners on base, you can get a win, you can get the outs. You have to make a pitch and trust your stuff." The lone run came on a sacrifice fly in the sixth by Donnie Murphy, who was in the game only because shortstop Elvis Andrus got ejected at the end of the third after taking a called third strike. Andrus tossed his bat away from the plate and then said something to home plate umpire Alan Porter. "As soon as I saw (the ump) point at him, I automatically threw off the hoodie and got loose, so I didnt really have much time to think about it," said Murphy, who joined the Rangers at the end of spring training. "Its always nice when you dont start the game just to come in and contribute like that." Perez (2-0) struck out two while scattering five hits and three walks. Catcher Robinson Chirinos threw out would-be base stealers in the third and fifth innings. Alexi Ogando worked a perfect ninth to convert his first save chance. Murphys deep flyball to the left-centre gap in the sixth sent home Josh Wilson against Brett Oberholtzer (0-3), who had a career-high seven strikeouts with no walks. "Oberholtzer was outstanding. Our starters did a tremendous job this whole series. The starts put us in a position to win every game," Astros manager Bo Porter said. "Weve got to get (the offence) going. If you dont score, youve got zero chance of winning." The Astros, who have scored only four runs in Oberholtzers three starts, scoreed in only two of their 31 innings against Texas.ddddddddddddThey had a five-run fourth inning Saturday before the game-winning run in the 10th. It was only the 10th 1-0 victory for the Rangers in their 1,601 regular-season home games since moving into their current ballpark 20 years ago. It was their second in three games against the Astros, the first time Texas has ever had multiple 1-0 wins in the same series -- home or away. Texas won the series opener 1-0 in 12 innings Friday night after Yu Darvish was perfect thru five innings. The Astros won 6-5 in 10 innings Saturday to snap their 12-game losing streak to their instate AL West rival. Houston has scored only four runs in the three games started this season by Oberholtzer, who struck out a career-high seven in seven innings against Texas. Texas has won its last 15 series against the Astros since dropping two of three at Houston in June 2008. Andrus struck out in both of his at-bats, ending his season-opening 11-game hitting streak that was second-longest in team history. Al Oliver had hits in the Rangers first 13 games to start the 1979 season. Prince Fielder finished 0 for 3, dropping his average to .149 through his first 12 games with the Rangers. The Astros used a drastic shift against him this weekend that took away several hits, including a sharp liner caught by second baseman Jose Altuve in shallow right to end the sixth Sunday. Altuve fielded a ground near that spot in the fourth. NOTES: It took only 44 seconds in the first inning for replay to overturn first base umpire Joe Wests call that Shin-Soo Choo was safe at first base. West had ruled that Altuves throw had pulled Jesus Guzman off first base. Porter came out, and replay showed that Guzman had stayed on the base and Choo was out. ... Murphy played second base, and Wilson moved from second base to shortstop. ... Rain was falling when the game started, but the sun was out when it ended 2 hours, 15 minutes later. ' ' '
