from four points down to win 3

Former major champion Michael Campbell believes Oakmont will provide a demanding challenge for the players at this weeks US Open. Mitch Richmond Kings Jersey . The 47-year-old, who memorably saw off Tiger Woods to win the title at Torrey Pines in 2005, finished tied-58th the last time the tournament was held at the venue in 2007.  Just six players finished better than 10 over par for the tournament that week in tough scoring conditions and Campbell expects the players to have to contend with similar problems this time around.  Campbell made the cut on the mark in 2007 before rounds of 75 and 79 over the weekend It is a brutal course and one of the toughest Ive ever played, Campbell told SkySports.com. It has the combination of fast, undulating greens like Augusta with thick rough, making it a true test for the guys to play.When I made the cut in 2007 I remember coming off after playing four rounds and feeling exhausted for a week, as its such a long and mentally draining course.I think youve got to have all departments of your golf game firing at 110% at Oakmont. The USGA always sets up their courses to be close to unplayable, to the point where the winner who holds that trophy at the end deserves it. Campbells major Michael Campbell recalls his win in 2005 A number of players have already described the challenges faced at Oakmont, with Phil Mickelson labeling the Pennsylvania course as the toughest he has ever played.The worlds top three of Jason Day, Jordan Spieth and Rory McIlroy all head to Pittsburgh off the back of wins in recent weeks, with Campbell finding it hard to pick a player to win the second major of the year.   All the players can do is try to grind every single shot and go out and give everything theyve got, Campbell added. Angel Cabrera shot five over to win the tournament when it was last held here in 2007 and youre definitely going to see plenty of guys scoring in the 80s this week.Dustin Johnson is someone who could have an advantage over the other guys, as hes powerful, long and has a great little short game. Last years runner up Dustin Johnson heads to Oakmont in good form I love his pitching and he has a wonderful touch around the greens, too, so the course should suit him.Jason Days another powerful player who is likely to do well and then theres the likes of Jordan Spieth, who plays very different to Dustin and Jason because hes much more of a scrambler. Choosing a winner is going to be very tough.Watch the US Open live from June 16-19 on Sky Sports 4 - your home of golf Also See: Relive Campbells 2005 win US Open latest news Doughertys Oakmont memories Golf live on Sky Sports Ben McLemore Kings Jersey .Simon will work with head coach Gord Dineen and associate coach Derek King behind the bench of the Toronto Maple Leafs American Hockey League affiliate for the 2014-15 season. Arron Afflalo Kings Jersey .

LOUIS - The St. Louis Rams have been very rough on Arizona Cardinals quarterbacks. It hasnt helped the bottom line.Though Drew Stanton was carted off with a right knee injury, just like Carson Palmer was a month ago, the Rams couldnt get enough done on offence.At the end of the game they were down to their third-string guy, defensive end Chris Long said after a 12-6 loss Thursday night. Theyve got enough players that they made more plays than us.Chandler Catanzaro kicked four field goals and the Cardinals overcame the loss of quarterback Drew Stanton with stifling defence, getting a sack and fumble recovery from Larry Foote.When people go down, we dont even ask how bad it is, Foote said. We just keep rolling. We definitely dont want our quarterback getting hurt. We just say on the defensive side, Lets hold them.Coach Bruce Arians said Stanton had a previous knee injury so will need an MRI exam to determine the extent of the damage. Wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald seemed to believe Stanton would be out a while, and added about Lindley, Were going to rally around him.Were a resilient group, Fitzgerald added. Weve got a great defence, too.The Rams (6-8) were held to Greg Zuerleins two short field goals and had five three-and-out series in the third quarter. Catanzaros 23-yard field goal early in the second quarter ended nine quarters of shutout defence by St. Louis, which beat Washington and Oakland by a combined 76-0 the previous two weeks.Our defence kept us in the game, tight end Jared Cook. We couldnt capitalize on them flipping the field for us.Its the third time this season the Rams were held to single-digit scoring, and first in five games since Shaun Hill recaptured the quarterback job.Just mental errors, which is the bad part, Hill said. Physical errors are going to happen. Were humans. But on a short week, we have to be dialed in that much more and not have the mental errors and the mental breakdowns.Ryan Lindley was ineffective in his first appearance since 2012 in relief of Stanton, who injured his right knee on rookie Aaron Donalds sack in the third quarter, but it didnt matter. Palmer sustained a season-ending knee injury during their 31-14 victory over St. Louis at home last month.The Cardinals (11-3) entered tied for the top overall record in the NFC and will clinch a playoff spot if Sundays Dallas-Philadelphia game doesnt end in a tie, or a Detroit loss combined with a Green Bay victory.I thought our defence played well enough for us to win, coach Jeff Fisher said, but quickly added a turnover would have been nice. In situations like this, when your offence is struggling, your defence has got to make a play. We were close.The Rams were eliminated from playoff contention.Ryan Lindley was iineffective in his first appearance since 2012 in relief of Stanton, who injured his right knee on a sack in the third quarter, but it didnt matter. Jason Williams Jersey. The Cardinals lost Carson Palmer to a season-ending knee injury during their 31-14 home victory over St. Louis last month.Kerwynn Williams was the Cardinals offensive standout with 75 yards on 15 carries. Stanton was 12 of 20 for 109 yards and Lindley was 4 of 10 for 30 yards.The Cardinals (11-3) entered tied for the top overall record in the NFC and will clinch a playoff spot if Sundays Dallas-Philadelphia game doesnt end in a tie, or a Detroit loss combined with a Green Bay victory.Rams players had no apparent protests relating to unrest in nearby Ferguson. Two weeks ago, five players did the Hands Up, Dont Shoot pose coming out of the tunnel during pre-game introductions, and last week players wrote I Cant Breathe!!! on wrist bands and cleats.Rams rookie Tre Masons fumble gave the Cardinals a short field that set up Catanzaros first field goal. Frostee Rucker punched the ball free and Foote recovered at the St. Louis 27.It was the first score given up by the Rams since Nov. 23, when San Diego scored the winning touchdown with just over 8 minutes left in a 27-24 victory.Michael Floyd 49-yard reception set up Catanzaros 44-yard field goal that put the Cardinals up 6-3 midway through the second. Catanzaro made kicks of 51 yards and 46 yards in the second halfBoth teams had key defenders active coming off ankle woes. Arizonas Antonio Cromartie and St. Louis Chris Long had been questionable.Arizona committed five penalties on its first two possessions, twice wiping out big gains. Shaun Hill was 4 for 4 with completions of 21 yards to Benny Cunningham on a screen and Cory Harkey for 16 yards to set up Zuerleins 24-yard field goal in the first. Zuerlein missed an extra-point kick and two field goals inside the 40 last week.Last month, Arizona outscored the Rams 21-0 in the fourth quarter, with two defensive touchdowns, to come from four points down to win 31-14. After that game, St. Louis benched Austin Davis in favour of Hill.Notes: Fitzgerald was held in check against a team hes dominated with seven receptions for just 30 yards. Still, at 31 he became the youngest player to 900 career catches. In 22 games against St. Louis, he has 128 receptions and 16TDs, most against any opponent. ...
