Ewan sprints to a Pol­ish stage win

Townsville Bulletin - - SPORT -

NBA su­per­star Stephen Curry has his sights on mak­ing the cut when he de­buts on pro­fes­sional golf’s Web. com Tour in Cal­i­for­nia this week.

The Golden State War­riors sharp­shooter is rated a 3000- 1 chance of win­ning the se­condary tour’s El­lie Mae Clas­sic at TPC Stone­brae af­ter ac­cept­ing a spon­sor’s in­vite to com­pete.

Golf has long been a pas­sion for the War­riors guard, who plays off an im­pres­sive two hand­i­cap.

Curry, a two- time NBA MVP, said mak­ing the cut would be akin to win­ning the tour­na­ment in his view. “I’m stay­ing re­al­is­tic,” Curry told ESPN. “The cut would be - if I can just give my­self a chance, like go into Friday with a re­al­is­tic chance to make it - that would be amaz­ing.” EMERG­ING Aus­tralian cy­clist Caleb Ewan has sprinted to vic­tory on the fourth stage of the Tour of Poland.

The 23- year- old Ewan ( pic­tured), who also won a stage at this year’s Giro d’Italia, was vic­to­ri­ous on the Pol­ish tour’s long­est sec­tion ( 238km) between Zaw­ier­cie to Zabrze yes­ter­day.

The Orica- Scott rider fin­ished in 5: 38: 49 in 35C heat, ahead of Team Sky’s Danny van Pop­pel and BORA- hans­grohe’s sprint star Pe­ter Sa­gan, who main­tained the yel­low leader’s jer­sey.
