17 November 2018 6:45 AM Hole-in-one hero An falls back to earth – with a thump

Around the same time that Cameron Percy was hitting bogeys on the third and fourth holes, a horse he part-owns, Yogi, was saluting in the $150,000 Sandown Cup. Still on the nags, John Walter, who manages top Sydney jockeys Josh Parr and Tim Clark, caddied for Aaron Pike. That's the reason Pike planned on spending the afternoon with a few beers and backing 36

16 November 2018 6:47 AM Smith confident of staging another late Open charge

Cameron Smith, the early Australian Open favourite, will look to take full advantage of the fresh greens early Saturday and stage another late charge at the Australian Open. Just as he motored home in the Open two years ago to force a play-off with Jordan Spieth - not to mention belted a blazing final-day 66 at the US Masters earlier this year - Smith 32

15 November 2018 8:42 AM 'Legs like jelly': Davis' Open defence stalls after nervous start

"I was trying really hard, probably a little bit too hard. I was a little bit nervous obviously. As soon as I heard my name on the first tee the legs were a little bit like jelly and I tried a little too hard probably. "I was fine up until that point and it's something I need to get used to I guess. Other than that start I played a pretty good round 13

15 November 2018 7:50 AM Uber driver left almost bankrupt stakes Open claim

"You get sore backs [driving all the time]. You know what, it's been great. You meet really good people. [I] haven't had any bad people, which is good." Stephens was forced to rise at 4.30am – a time he could be forgiven for ferrying passengers home – to help prepare for his 6.45am tee time, but found himself bashing the snooze button a couple of times 17

13 November 2018 7:00 PM David Barlow, Craig Moller join Boomers for home qualifiers

With two wins the Boomers would lock in their place at next year’s FIBA World Cup in China and one win could also see them safely in depending on other results. NBL form has been the driver for all three selections as the Barlow and Gliddon among the most consistent performers in the NBL in the opening five weeks of the season while Moller has regularly 14

11 November 2018 7:39 AM Federal winner flags golden link with Canberra track star

Corey Lamb produced a stunning final hole to win the men's, pinching the title by one shot from Charlie Dann. For Kim it was a far more comfortable win, leading from the opening round to add to her victory at the Youth Olympics in Argentina. That gold medal earned her the right to carry the Australian flag at the closing ceremony. "[Keely] was the opening 17

9 November 2018 11:08 AM City win ugly, bounce back from Sydney humiliation

Frenchman Florin Berenguer had his most productive game for City so far, but still has room for improvement, while Lachie Wales and McGree showed why Joyce has given those two youngsters so much responsibility. Kearyn Baccus, meanwhile, continues to surprise in the middle of the park. Luke Brattan and Anthony Caceras were dropped from the squad with no suggestion 10

9 November 2018 10:44 AM Heavyweights collide as Smith-Warner square off at Coogee Oval

But the presence of Smith and Warner in Sydney grade cricket has been a welcome shot of vitality for the lower tiers of cricket, which rarely see the likes of Warner and Smith, who have both found a way to embrace the upside of their exile. "I can’t remember two current players that have been captain and vice-captain of their country, still playing the game, and playing 10

7 November 2018 7:32 AM Newnham hopes for a group 1 and a Ladies Day surprise

“You look at the Derby winner and he was very impressive at Flemington then disappointing at Caulfield before winning on Saturday,” Newnham said. “Hopefully she can do the same.” Back at Hawkesbury the Spring Provincial Series continues with its third heat where Bobbing will be looking for a hat-trick this time in. Trainer Bernie Kelly has decided to take a shot at the rich series 14

6 November 2018 3:05 AM Shraaoh toughs it out in the mud, long term aim is Sydney Cup

Shraaoh has had a rather more low-key preparation than that pair, having got through quarantine and then been kept ticking over at Waller's Flemington stable until the right opportunity presented. That came on Cup Day in the supporting staying race, the Ronald McDonald House Charities Plate, where the $6.50 shot proved too good for 13 rivals under Kerrin 12
