Golfer Wies­berger wins French Open

Cape Breton Post - - SPORTS -

PARIS - Bernd Wies­berger of Aus­tria came from three shots back to win the French Open on Sun­day, mak­ing five birdies on the front nine to take com­mand as overnight leader Jaco Van Zyl fal­tered. Wies­berger fin­ished with a 6un­der 65 to win by three shots ahead of James Mor­ri­son of Eng­land, who shot a 67. Van Zyl only man­aged a 73 to fin­ish five shots be­hind Wies­berger's to­tal of 13un­der 271. Wies­berger found him­self in the lead af­ter four straight birdies from the fourth hole, and picked up another shot on the ninth. Af­ter eight straight pars, he fin­ished with another birdie on the 18th. Martin Kaymer, the 2009 cham­pion, fin­ished fourth af­ter a 70. It was Wies­berger's third Euro­pean Tour ti­tle. Na­tion­als put Stras­burg on dis­abled list WASHINGTON - The Washington Na­tion­als have put pitcher Stephen Stras­burg back on the 15-day dis­abled list, this time with a strained left oblique. The NL East lead­ers made the move Sun­day be­fore play­ing San Fran­cisco on Stras­burg bob­ble­head doll night at Na­tion­als Park. Right-han­der Tay­lor Jor­dan was re­called from Triple-A Syra­cuse. Stras­burg left Satur­day's game against the Giants af­ter 3 2-3 score­less in­nings be­cause of tight­ness in his left side. He had an MRI on Sun­day. “It's un­for­tu­nate be­cause he felt food and was pitch­ing great,” man­ager Matt Wil­liams said. Wil­liams said he didn't have a sense of how long Stras­burg would be out. “Not re­ally. We know it's 15, so we'll do what we can in those 15 and see where we're at,” he said. “It re­acts dif­fer­ently with ev­ery­body, and 15 days from now we'll have a bet­ter an­swer. I know that.” Over­all, Stras­burg is 5-5 with a 5.16 ERA in 13 starts.
