PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. Rayshawn Jenkins Chargers Jersey . -- Even without Tiger Woods around, Sergio Garcia couldnt avoid reminders of a week to forget at The Players Championship. The 17th hole is where Garcia last year lost the battle, along with the war of words. After two days of verbal sparring with Woods, the Spaniard put two balls in the water to make quadruple bogey, and he put another in the water on the 18th for good measure. Garcia already was 4 under on Thursday when he came to the par-3 17th with an island green. "It did cross my mind. Im not going to lie to you," Garcia said. "I was trying to be positive. Its a new year -- lets improve on it. I pulled it a little bit there, but it was an OK shot. I was able to do much better there, and much better on 18, so I was very happy to see that." Garcia was six shots better than the last time he played those holes. He wound up with a 5-under 67 and was four shots behind leader Martin Kaymer, a good start for a past champion who has shown he can manage his way around the Stadium Course. As for those other memories? Garcia has put those behind him. Much like his golf shots, hes looking forward. Woods won The Players last year in a tournament marked by a weekend of squabbling with Garcia -- such public feuds are rare in golf -- that ended badly a few weeks later in London when Garcia made a racially insensitive comment about Woods while trying to be funny. It started in the third round, when Garcia blamed Woods for pulling fairway metal from his bag on a par 5 to stir up the gallery just as Garcia was trying to play his shot. Video doesnt support that sequence of events, but it set off a weekend of bickering -- and Woods got the last word by winning. "I think its over. I think its passed," Garcia said. "I didnt think I was a villain, but I think that weve all moved ahead of that. I certainly have. Im just looking forward to now and hopefully whats coming soon." Garcia says he is in a happier place, and it shows. He conducted a clinic for kids on Wednesday, and he is at his best in the presence of children. He played beautifully on Thursday, losing momentum with one bogey on his 14th hole, but no less satisfied with a 67. Even so, he conceded his battle with Woods last year unsettled him. He was at an awards banquet in London when asked if he would invite Woods over to dinner during the U.S. Open. "We will serve fried chicken," Garcia replied. He apologized twice, though it didnt quell the criticism that followed him the rest of the summer. Garcia spoke of the ups and downs in his career, of trying to play good golf when he feels miserable. Garcia went into a deep funk when longtime girlfriend Morgan Leigh Norman left him. He said after a poor third round in the 2012 Masters that he did not have the game to win a major. "You go through ups and downs in your life, in your career," Garcia said. "And Ive had really, really good times; really, really happy times. And then Ive had times that were a little bit more down. I think it happens to all of us. Youve got to try to enjoy those good times as much as possible and learn from the tough ones and hopefully make them as short as possible. I think at the end of the day, thats all you can really do." He said the last four years have been "pretty good," but not always. "I dont know, probably (what) comes to mind maybe last year is when everything went on with the little problem with Tiger," he said. "I think that was tough." Lately, he is on an upward swing. Garcia won in Thailand late last year. He won in Qatar at the start of this year. He is No. 9 in the world. He is thinking positively. And it probably doesnt hurt that Woods is sidelined indefinitely while recovering from back surgery. And yes, at 34, he believes hes good enough to win a major. "I think that when Im on, I can definitely win anywhere," he said. "I think Ive proven that. Its just a matter of getting that week where you feel good, where you feel comfortable, where things go your way, where everything feels relaxed, everything feels at ease and you manage to do things the way you know how to do them. Im still waiting for that particular week." Mike Williams Youth Jersey . Patrick Kane and the Chicago Blackhawks were proof of that on Wednesday night. Rayshawn Jenkins Womens Jersey . -- Scottie Wilbekin sat on the bench for the final minute, holding a bag of ice against his left knee.Loudon, NH (SportsNetwork.com) - Joey Logano has advanced into the next round of the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship by winning Sundays Sylvania 300 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, a race plagued with accidents that involved several of the Chase members. Logano took the lead from Kevin Harvick following a restart with 27 laps to go and then held off the field in a pair of restarts in the closing laps, including one for a green-white-checkered finish, before crossing the finish line 1.15 seconds ahead of second-place finisher Kyle Larson. Logano, who hails from nearby Middletown, Connecticut, scored his fourth win of the season and the seventh of his Sprint Cup Series career. His first victory in the series occurred in a rain-shortened race at this flat 1.058- mile New England track during his 2009 rookie season. Last weekend, Loganos Team Penske teammate, Brad Keselowski, won the Chase- opener at Chicagoland and assured himself of moving on into the Contender Round. Dan Feeney Youth Jersey. . Keselowski, the pole sitter in this race, finished seventh. Harvick, who led the most laps with 104, crossed the line in third, while Jamie McMurray placed fourth and Jimmie Johnson, the six-time and defending series champion, was fifth. There were 15 cautions in this race -- a season-high in the series. On lap 292, Jeff Gordon cut his right-front tire and slammed hard into the wall coming out of turn 4. Gordon managed to finish as the last car on the lead lap in 26th. He was coming off a second-place run at Chicagoland. Joe Gibbs Racing drivers Kyle Busch, Denny Hamlin and Matt Kenseth, all of whom are in the Chase, were involved in wrecks as well. Busch finished eighth, Kenseth 21st and Hamlin 37th. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys ' ' '
