CARMEL, Ind. Willy Caballero Jersey . -- The journey started in Rio de Janeiro, where Rickie Fowler played for the United States in the mens Olympic golf tournament. From there, he went to Greensboro, New York, Boston and Indianapolis in search of FedEx points and brownie points.He didnt earn enough of the former to secure a place in Atlanta in two weeks for the PGA Tours season-ending, 30-man field at the Tour Championship.Whether he got enough of the latter will be determined Monday -- or perhaps not until Sept. 25 -- when captain Davis Love III makes his at-large selections for the U.S. Ryder Cup team.Playing in his fifth straight week, Fowler admitted he was running out of energy. The result was a lackluster performance at the BMW Championship, in which he tied for 59th and was forced to watch the wildly fluctuating projections that had him in and out of the top 30 all afternoon.As it turned out, when J.B. Holmes parred the final hole to shoot 2-over-par 74 -- making a testy 3-footer -- he secured the 28th position. Fowler was bumped to 31st, just behind Charl Schwartzel,?who shot a final-round 64 to move into a tie for fourth and jump up from 43rd in FedEx Cup points.Theres nothing I can do, Fowler said after finishing with an even-par 72; he was long gone when those on the golf course determined his fate. Im not going to go heckle the ones that I need to miss or anything like that. I want to see guys play well, and theyre all my buddies. You never root against anyone.And like I said, all I can do is go play golf today and Im done. So whatever happens, happens.Fowler can point to a nine-tournament stretch that began at the Players Championship that led to his inability to qualify for the Tour Championship.Starting at the PGA Tours flagship tournament, Fowler missed three straight cuts and had just one finish inside the top 10. While competing at the mens Olympic golf tournament, in which he finished tied for 37th, Fowler decided to add the Wyndham Championship to his schedule in an effort to make the U.S. Ryder Cup team on points.The following weeks Barclays was the last qualifying event, and Fowler was in good shape to make the team, only to falter on the last day and tie for seventh after holding the 54-hole lead. That tournament ultimately cost him his spot at East Lake; had he finished one place higher, he would have easily advanced.Now he may or may not have put his place on the U.S. Ryder Cup team in jeopardy.There are arguments for and against Fowler, to be sure. He is ranked ninth in the world and has played in two Ryder Cups with a 0-3-5 record; but he did little over the past six months in which he could have easily wrapped up a spot.Ive done basically everything I can do as far as schedule and playing, and obviously it would have been nice to play better to make the pick a lot easier on him, but whether he has his mind made up or is still thinking, thats up to him, Fowler said. Im just looking forward to having an off week at home this coming week.Hell have the week of the Tour Championship off as well, but Fowler can take solace in knowing that others being considered for a pick didnt exactly distinguish themselves, either.Holmes tied for fourth, but it came after a five-tournament stretch in which he missed three cuts; Bubba Watson tied for 20th and has just two worldwide top-10s going back to March; Ryan Moore won the John Deere Classic last month, then had two top-10s in the playoffs, only to tie for 64th at Crooked Stick this week.There are arguments for and against just about every player who is in the running for one of the four picks.As for the Tour Championship, it will play on without Open champion Henrik Stenson, who was bumped out of the top 30 because he took this week off to rest his ailing knee. Sergio Garcia didnt make it to East Lake, either, leaving Rory McIlroy as the only European Ryder Cup team member to play in Atlanta.BMW championship winner Dustin Johnson, Patrick Reed, Jordan Spieth, Jimmy Walker, Brandt Snedeker and Phil Mickelson are the U.S. team members who will be in Atlanta, as will several of the potential at-large picks in the field, including Justin Thomas, Moore, Matt Kuchar, Watson, Daniel Berger and Holmes. Thibaut Courtois Jersey . Hamelin, who triumphed in the 500 on Saturday, edged out Victor An of Russia by 0.021 seconds to maintain his lead in the World Cup standings. Russias Vladimir Grigorev was third. In the relay, Canada took control six laps from the finish line to beat Russia and the Netherlands. Olivier Giroud Jersey .

Ronaldo produced a spectacular individual performance on Tuesday, scoring all three goals and guiding Portugal into the next years World Cup in Brazil with a 3-2 victory in Sweden. The Real Madrid forward has scored 66 goals in 2013, but the last three may be the boost he needs to upstage Messi after FIFA unexpectedly extended the voting period for the Ballon dOr to Nov. NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- DeMarco Murray ran for a 71-yard touchdown and rookie Derrick Henry also scored and the Tennessee Titans new-look rushing attack delivered an impressive debut Saturday in a 27-10 preseason victory over the San Diego Chargers.Murray, seeking a new start in Tennessee after struggling with Chip Kellys offense in Philadelphia last season, had six carries for 93 yards. Henry, the 2015 Heisman Trophy winner from Alabama, had 10 carries for 74 yards and a touchdown.Id love to see that all season, Titans coach Mike Mularkey said. Thats what theyre capable of doing.Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota played three series and went 5 of 5 for 45 yards, including a 31-yarder to rookie Tajae Sharpe. The Titans had a field goal on Mariotas first series and capped his final drive with Murrays touchdown.Murray credited receivers Dorial Green-Beckham and Harry Douglas for delivering quality blocks on his big run. Murray easily broke safety Adrian Phillips attempted tackle on his way to the end zone.Murray rushed for an NFL-leading 1,845 yards with the Dallas Cowboys in 2014, but flopped last season after the Eagles signed him to a five-year, $40 million contract with $21 million guaranteed. Murray averaged 3.6 yards per carry and was benched late in the season.The Titans acquired Murray by swapping fourth-round picks with the Eagles and giving him a new contract.At the end of the day, you go through ups and downs in your life and career, Murray said. Its all about how you bounce back and how you have perseverance through things that dont go your way. Ive been blessed and lucky to be here as a Titan.Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers played just one series and connected with Melvin Gordon on a 44-yard touchdown.Rivers was 2 of 3 for 64 yards. After overthrowing Isaiah Burse deep, Rivers delivered a 20-yard completion to Keenan Allen on third-and-15. On the next play, Gordon caught a pass around the Tennessee 40 before running into the end zone.POSITION BATTLESChargers: Kellen Clemens and Zach Mettenberger are competing for the backup quarterback spot. Clemens played most of the firsst half and went 9 of 16 for 96 yards. Victor Moses Jersey.

Wide receivers Travis Benjamin and Tyrell Williams also didnt play.Titans: Sharpe was evaluated for a possible concussion late in the first quarter after catching two passes for 35 yards. .... Cornerback Perrish Cox didnt play because of a twisted ankle.QUOTABLEChargers: As the game went on offensively, we had too many penalties, coach Mike McCoy said. Little penalties. Wed move the ball and then have a play and have something hurt us so were playing first-, second- or third-and-long. And defensively weve got to do a better job of stopping the run.Titans: We definitely want to be a physical team, especially running the ball, Henry said. We want to be smash-mouth. ...
