Former US Open champion Graeme McDowell will avoid reaching for the panic button when he competes in this week’s Alstom Open de France. McDowell did win the Volvo World Match Play crown in Bulgari, but his missed cut in last week’s Irish Open was the fifth in his last six strokeplay events and left him spending the weekend at Carton House on the practice range, alongside compatriot Rory McIlroy, looking for some form ahead of the upcoming Open Championship. “Obviously that Volvo World Match Play offsets some really average golf for me I suppose,” McDowell admitted in his pre-tournament press conference at Le Golf National. “I feel like I went into the US Open a bit under golfed to be honest with you; (with) a few missed cuts here and there and playing a slightly reduced schedule this year.” Press Association He added: “I really just haven’t had enough course time the last couple of months and that was highlighted at the US Open – he shot rounds of 76 and 77 at Merion – and it was highlighted a little bit last week in Ireland, missing by one there. “I thought I had snuck in for the weekend and I could have done with a couple of extra rounds of golf under my belt, but used the weekend constructively, hit a lot of balls. “I feel like, thankfully, I’ve got a couple of victories under the belt this year to offset maybe the panic button being hit. It is a good thing to be coming into this run of golf fresh I suppose, I’ve got a lot of golf coming up here the next few months. “The game’s not in terrible shape to be honest with you. It’s been a fine line here and there. The motivation’s there and I’m feeling hungry and ready to go this summer. “I’ve worked very hard the last 10 days or so and I’ve probably hit as many balls in the last 10 days as I have in a couple of months really. I could do with a weekend here where I compete and play four rounds, get the old juices flowing.” McDowell is one of three players in the world’s top 10 competing in Paris, the world number nine being joined by eighth ranked Luke Donald and number five Matt Kuchar.

Shelburne later reported that center JaVale McGee will re-sign with the Lakers for two years and $8.2 million, with a player option.George’s departure raises deep questions about the Thunder, in particular whether the team will entertain the possiiblity of trading point guard Russell Westbrook, who has three years plus a player option for 2022-23 remaining on his supermax contract.George, at least in a Twitter response to ESPN’s Jalen Rose early Saturday, made it seem that Westbrook was not the reason he left OKC:At all 😤 RT @JalenRose: I am not accepting any Westbrook slander!!!!— Paul George (@Yg_Trece) July 6, 2019 Kawhi Leonard is LA-bound, but to the Clippers instead of the Lakers. He’s being joined by a fellow native Angeleno, to boot.The Clips pulled off the most shocking transaction combo off the NBA offseason late Friday night when they agreed to a contract with free-agent forward Leonard, this year’s Finals MVP, and acquired forward Paul George from the Thunder in a blockbuster trade, ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported . MORE: 2019 NBA free agency trackerPer Wojnarowski, Leonard will sign a four-year max contract worth $142 million. Oklahoma City, meanwhile, will acquire Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, Danilo Gallinari and five first-round draft picks, four of which will be unprotected. Marc Stein of The New York Times reported that three of those unprotected picks will be the Clippers’ selections in the 2022, 2024 and 2026 drafts. The other one will be a pick the Clippers acquired from the Heat.Stein added that the fifth first-rounder will be the Heat’s 2023 pick (protected from first to 14th), and that the Thunder will be able to swap first-round positions with the Clippers in 2023 and 2025.The moves should become official Saturday after the league’s moratorium on transactions is lifted at noon ET. Leonard and George will join a Clippers team that won 48 games last season and made the playoffs. LA took the eventual Western Conference champion Warriors to six games in the first round. Golden State fell in the Finals to Leonard and the Raptors.🗣”We coming home.”Safe to say PG is excited about being traded to the Clippers.

George’s agent asked Thunder general manager Sam Presti for a trade in recent days, sources told Wojnarowski.The Clippers’ rotation will now include Leonard, George, Lou Williams, Patrick Beverley, Montrezl Harrell, Maurice Harkless, Rodney McGruder and Landry Shamet. Pat Bev and Lou Will’s reactions to becoming teammates with Kawhi and PG… 😂🤣(via @patbev21) pic.twitter.com/fGpAllMauT— NBA on TNT (@NBAonTNT) July 6, 2019The duo will be playing in the same building as the Lakers, who reportedly were finalists for Leonard. The Lakers were trying to form a big three of Leonard, LeBron James and Anthony Davis. With no other star on the free-agent market, they will likely fill their available cap space with multiple veteran free agents.The first free-agent additions appeared to be wings Danny Green (two years, $30 million, per Wojnarowski) and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, per ESPN’s Ramona Shelburne. Green, 32, played alongside Leonard during the Raptors’ run to a championship. Caldwell-Pope, 26, played in all 82 games for the Lakers last season, averaging 11.4 points and shooting .430/.347/.867.

MORE FANDUEL LINEUPS: Sunday | Single gamesNFL DFS Wild Card Saturday: FanDuel GPP Lineup PicksQB Josh Allen, Bills @ Texans ($8,200). Houston allowed the fourth-most FanDuel points to opposing QBs in the regular season, by far the worst of the four teams playing Saturday. Maybe everyone will be on Allen, but he still seems like the best play.RB Derrick Henry, Titans @ Patriots ($9,500). The pricing on this slate probably means that Henry will be highly owned, but it’s not worth fading such a high-volume player. We’ll set our lineup apart with some of the other picks.RB James White, Patriots vs. Titans ($6,200). My action in this game goes along the path that it will be Tennessee leading and New England trying to come back, thus the use of the pass-catching White. That could be wrong, but it’s the kind of chance you have to take to win a small-slate GPP.WILD CARD WEEKEND LINEUPS: Yahoo | DraftKings | FanDuelWR DeAndre Hopkins, Texans vs. Bills ($8,700). Pick your poison among the top WRs — you can have Hopkins against Tre’Davious White or A.J. Brown against Stephon Gilmore. I’ve opted for the veteran against the maybe slightly worse cornerback rather than the rookie.WR N’Keal Harry, Patriots vs. Titans ($5,200). With Julian Edelman continuing to battle a knee injury, Harry keeps getting on the field and getting the occasional red-zone target, too. WR Isaiah McKenzie, Bills @ Texans ($4,600). Our cheapest play will go to Buffalo’s gadget player whose role as No. 3 WR has grown as the season has gone on. He’ll be involved, which is more than you can say with a lot of guys priced this low. The first round of the NFL playoffs gets underway Saturday, as the Bills play the Texans and the Titans play the Patriots. It’s been a long time since New England played on Wild Card weekend, but that just means their stacked defense will affect FanDuel DFS tournament lineup picks.In the hopes that most people fade Titans, we have three in our lineup, as the Pats look as vulnerable as they’ve ever been. We match our Tennessee stack with a Buffalo stack, though with some top corners in action, the tricky small-slate pricing is even tougher to navigate. TE Jonnu Smith, Titans @ Patriots ($6,300). Hopefully Smith’s disappointing Week 17 will have people punting the TE position, but he’s by far the most talented at the position.FLEX John Brown, Bills @ Texans ($6,800). If someone is going to get open deep against Houston’s defense, it’s Brown, and we need that stacking potential on a small slate with Allen.D/ST Tennessee Titans @ Patriots ($4,000). New England should have a good gameplan, but it’s more likely the Pats win by scoring 20 rather than 40. There are a lot of scenarios where Tennessee dictates this game and limits the Patriots, and those scenarios aren’t really reflected in the Titans having the lowest D/ST price.
A report that ranks the states on how prepared they are for emergencies now places Iowa in the highest tier of best-prepared state, up from the middle tier in 2019. Rhea Farberman, spokeswoman for Trust for America’s Health, says Iowa is doing very well in the ten main categories, including things like infection control, vaccination rates, access to safe water and public health funding. She notes 60-percent of Iowans who work have access to paid leave.“When someone has access to paid time off, be that personal time, vacation time or sick time, they tend to stay home when they’re sick and that helps control the spread of infectious disease,” Farberman says. “When someone does not have access to paid time off, they tend to go to work when they’re sick, and that spreads infectious disease.” One category where Iowa lagged behind was in the percentage of hospitals that are part of a health care coalition. About 80-percent of Iowa’s hospitals have such alliances, while the national average is 89-percent. Farberman says those compacts are vital as resources are often taxed during an emergency, whether it’s a disease outbreak or a weather-related disaster.“They might need help from a neighboring county or a neighboring state,” Farberman says. “They might need more doctors or more nurses or more epidemiologists. Participating in these compacts and coalitions allows one jurisdiction to borrow medical personnel from another jurisdiction so the community needs are met during an emergency.” There is growing global concern over the spread of coronavirus and officials from the Iowa Department of Public Health are already working to educate the public about the facts and the risks.“Coronavirus is just the latest example of why these indicators are important, why measuring preparedness is important, and why a standing, ready public health infrastructure is so important,” she says. Iowa joins 24 other states in the high performance tier. There are 12 states in the middle tier and 13 in the low tier.
