ATLANTA -- Dustin Johnson is playing better than anyone in the world, and Kevin Chappell cant wait to watch him at the Tour Championship. Cheap Giants Jerseys .Even if that means having to beat him.Johnson powered his way down the fairways and occasionally out of the brutal rough at East Lake on Friday for a 3-under 67, giving him a one-shot lead over Chappell and moving him one round closer to the $10 million FedEx Cup prize.The U.S. Open champion is on a different level at the moment.Even on a demanding test like East Lake this year -- only 10 players remain under par -- Johnson is hitting his driver long and straight. His wedge game has gone from a weakness to a strength. A new putter he put in play two weeks ago when he won the BMW Championship is giving him a better feel for alignment.Small wonder that this was his seventh straight round at 68 or better during the FedEx Cup playoffs.The game is never easy. I wish it was, Johnson said. Obviously, Im playing good right now. Ive got a lot of confidence in my game. Every week, I feel like I bring the same game, which is nice. But I put in a lot of work to get to where I am.Johnson was at 7-under 133.Chappell, one of two players at the Tour Championship who has yet to win on the PGA Tour, was just as solid, even if it doesnt look as spectacular. He has made only one bogey in 36 holes, quite a feat on a course where the Bermuda rough is so punishing that balls sink to the ground and sometimes cant be seen from a foot away.He shot a 68 and will be in the final group of a playoff event for the second time this year.Kevin Kisner (70) and Hideki Matsuyama (71) were four shots behind, while Rory McIlroy overcame another rough start on the front nine to post a 70. He was in the group five shots behind, which isnt much of a deficit at the halfway point except for Johnson being the one they have to chase.If nothing else, Johnson all but eliminated nearly everyone not among the top five seeds vying for the FedEx Cup. McIlroy is No. 6 and still has a chance, though he would have to win the Tour Championship and Johnson would have to finish third.I need to win, and I just need someone to play as good as Dustin this week, McIlroy said.Jason Day is out of the picture. The worlds No. 1 player withdrew in the middle of a round at the second straight tournament, citing the same nagging back issues that he hopes will be cured by rest.By Day withdrawing, Johnson won the points-based PGA player of the year award and is likely to win the player vote as PGA Tour player of the year because of his three victories, with perhaps another to follow.But there is still work ahead of him, and that starts with Chappell.I promise you, Ill be watching Dustin, Chappell said. Hes the best player in the world right now, and its an opportunity for me to see where my game is. Theres a golf tournament going on, and I have a chance to win that. Thats the ultimate goal. But I also have a chance to see why hes the best player in the world right now, and I look forward to taking advantage of that opportunity.Chappell has been a runner-up three times this season and keeps running into the wrong guys -- Kisner at Sea Island, Day at Bay Hill and The Players Championship. He also was in the mix at the TPC Boston until McIlroy pulled away.It seems I like going against the hot player at the time, he said.Russell Knox matched the low score of the tournament with a 66 that allowed him to get back under par at 1-under 139, along with Justin Thomas, who is still hopeful of a Ryder Cup pick at the end of the week.Thomas lost a shot when his ball moved right as he set his putter down behind a short par putt on the 11th hole. The PGA Tour reviewed it on videotape and gave him a one-shot penalty under Rule 18-2, the same penalty applied to Johnson at Oakmont in the U.S. Open.Thomas disagreed with, but accepted, the penalty. His argument was it was not a flat surface and the greens were running fastIts nothing against the rules officials. Its a god-awful rule, Thomas said. Its very fortunate it didnt cost Dustin a major championship. I hope it doesnt cost me anything. I dont feel like I did anything wrong.Mark Russell, the vice president of rules and competition for the tour, said, the wind was light and the ball had been at rest for quite some time.And the moment that Justin put his club behind the ball and addressed the ball, the ball moved, he said. In that situation, the evidence is against the player and he was penalized.That left him six shots behind Johnson instead of five. Either way, its a tall order for Thomas or anyone to catch Johnson.

Victor Moses converted a 20th-minute penalty after an Ethiopian handball, and Victor Obinna made certain of Nigerias place in Brazil with his powerful free kick in the 82nd at UJ Esuene Stadium.

Cricket Ireland has suffered another blow in its attempts to find a manager for their national academy after Toby Radford left after little more than a month in the role.Radfords departure follows Chris Adams u-turn over the job after he was initially handed the position only to change his mind two days later for family reasons. Radfords decision to leave is also down to his personal circumstances.Cricket Ireland performance director Richard Holdsworth said: We are naturally very disappointed to be losing Toby so quickly. Fortunately it is a quieter period of the year where most players are resting after the season.Clearly our experience in the few months of recruitment for this position has been a challenge, particularly in relocating. We shall look at the position again and have an in-depth review of our human resourcees around the Shapoorji Pallonji Academy in order to get to the right outcome. Giants Jerseys China. Radford said: It has been a very difficult decision for me to make. For family reasons, I feel I have no alternative but to move back to the UK to be with them. In my short time in this role with Cricket Ireland I have been very grateful for the positive attitudes, warm welcome and generosity of all the staff and players.I have written a new Academy template and Programme for next years Cricket Ireland Shapoorji Pallonji Academy intake, and would have dearly loved to be here to implement it. I wish Cricket Ireland every success with its continued drive for attaining ICC Full Member and Test Match status. ' ' '
