Tiger Woods and the past? Woods maintained his quest for his 82nd PGA Tour title, trailing Japan's Hideki Matsuyama by three strokes when the final round of the Zozo Championship was called off after 11 holes due to darkness on Sunday. Two other men were tied for second place.
This is not the first time that Zozo has been canceled because of rain. Last year's event was also postponed to Monday with no effect on the winner's prize money. The venue's name comes from the nickname of one of its founders, Toshiaki Zozo.
He died at the age of 102 in 2012. Today, the tournament is named after him.
The first Masters Tournament was held in 1934 at Augusta National Golf Club. It was an immediate success, so more tournaments were added in the following years. But there was no official circuit until 1968 when the PGA Tour was established. That's when things really took off for Masters Tournament. Now, it is one of the most prestigious events on the golf calendar.
In 1984, a major earthquake struck Southern California near Augusta National. The tournament went on as planned a few weeks later. And since then, it has become an annual event that is expected to draw thousands of people every year.
Masters Tournament is scheduled to be played next on April 9-12, 2014.
At the very least, Woods doesn't have to worry about the cut since there isn't one. Beginning with Friday's second round, he'll have three more runs around Sherwood to get his game in shape before heading to Augusta National. Explosive motion is one of the most significant features in football. Power and explosiveness have become two of the most desired traits in a footballer in the modern game (one simply has to look at the price tag on French speedster Mbappe). We all want our players to be as explosive as possible as coaches. That means using techniques that involve as much forward momentum as possible. This can be achieved by using moves such as spin kicks, shimmies, feints, and dribbles. Spin kicks are when you kick with your foot pointing backwards while pulling your leg towards yourself. This creates movement without using your arms which allows you to keep your momentum going forward.
As for power, this can be achieved through techniques such as drag kicks, drop kicks, and punts. A drag kick is when you kick with your foot pointed forwards while pulling your leg back behind you. This uses your leg as a rocket launcher to fire the ball into the net. Drop kicks are when you stand over the ball and then drop your foot down onto it to send the ball flying into the net. Punts are when you run with the ball and then kick it as hard as you can towards the goal. These are just some examples of how you can use your legs to gain power and score goals. As you can see, football is not only about passing and scoring but also about getting into positions where you can shoot or kick the ball!
Now, moving on to free kicks...

Zozo is the last tournament of the season and it takes place in Japan's Osaka Prefecture. The event was first held in 1992 and its name comes from the region where it is held. It is a match play championship with 32 players competing for the title. The top 16 scorers after 54 holes of play will advance to the next stage, while the rest will be eliminated. The 16 survivors will then play two more rounds of match play to determine the champion. The winner earns $1 million dollars along with the trophy they wear around their neck.
Here are this year's participants: Hideto Tanihara (JAP), Naomichi Ozaki (JAP), Kazuhiro Kokubo (JPN), Shigeki Maruyama (JPN). The list of winners here shows that Japan dominates the event with seven titles to its name. South Korea has three wins and America has one. The remaining eight countries have never won the event.
