SYDNEY -- Jordan Spieth feels fresh and healthy after a six-week break, and is ready to add another Australian Open crown to his collection of titles. Nike Air Max Zero Essential Blue .The No. 5-ranked Spieth won the Australian Open by six shots in 2014, becoming the first American in 20 years to win the tournament, and finished tied for second with Adam Scott last year.Spieth hasnt played a competitive round since helping the United States regain the Ryder Cup Sunday at Hazeltine National Golf Club on the first weekend of October.I feel very fresh. I feel as strong and healthy as Ive felt ... probably ever to be honest, he told the Australian Associated Press during a practice round at Royal. Sydney on Monday. It was really nice taking a few weeks off, just training and only start getting back into golf the last couple weeks. Really trying to make it an off season.Having played at The Australian Golf Club the past two years, Spieth will face a new challenge at Royal Sydney, abutting Sydney Harbour.Tree-lined, different green styles and types of grass but what a cool piece of property this is! he said of the Royal Sydney course at Rose Bay in the citys east. The scores are just going to be dependent on weather, I think -- how hard the wind blows. If it doesnt blow you can tear this place up and if it does then you can get into some trouble quickly.Spieth said his game plan wouldnt change much, although he may have to think a little bit more.Nothing really changes, other than less drivers most likely, Spieth said. I still plan on being pretty aggressive, so Ive just got to try and figure out where all these slopes are, so when the pins are in their locations for the tournament you understand which sides to miss it on.The Australian Open starts Thursday. Matt Jones is not defending the title he won in 2015, but Scott, Geoff Ogilvy and Aaron Baddeley will be leading the local charge. Nike Air Max Zero Essential Grey . -- Gus Malzahn finally had his day in Fayetteville. Nike Air Max Zero Essential White . There are some early surprises in the race for the Hart Trophy, but two of the contenders are the leagues biggest stars over the past decade. There are many more players in contention for the awards than just the three that Ive named, and a good or bad week can easily alter the landscape, but through the first 20 or so games of the NHL season, this is how the awards races look to me. http://www.airmaxzerosale.com/ . At a Manhattan federal court hearing, attorney Jordan Siev said his law office has gotten more evidence nearly every day to support its lawsuit accusing MLB and Selig of going on a "witch hunt" to ruin Rodriguezs reputation and career. He said the defendants went "way over the line. RIO DE JANEIRO -- Michael Phelps sat alone, thoroughly exhausted. He put his head in his hands and then motioned at his neck as though he had nothing left to give.No need.His work was done.He had his 20th and 21st gold medals.Phelps made up for one of the rare losses in his brilliant career by winning the 200-meter butterfly, a triumph that sent him climbing into the stands to kiss his 3-month-old son Boomer. An hour later, he returned to take what amounted to nothing more than a triumphant victory lap in anchoring the 4x200 freestyle relay, the crowds deafening roar growing louder with every stroke.This was another performance for the ages, but Phelps has done it so many times that nothing else would have been fitting. It came on a night that American teammate Katie Ledecky picked up her second gold of the Rio Olympics on the way to what could be a historic run of her own in the pool.Phelps now has 25 medals in all, and three more races in Rio to add to his almost unimaginable total.The 200 fly was the one he really wanted, and it showed.With challengers all around, Phelps simply wouldnt be denied.After touching the wall first -- by a mere four-hundredths of a second -- he held up one finger. Then he sat on a lane rope, egging on the roaring crowd at the Olympic Aquatics Center with both hands, before emphatically pumping his fist.Tears welled in his eyes during the medal ceremony -- until somebody in the crowd cracked him up. Then, during the customary stroll around the pool to pose for photographers, Phelps broke ranks and bounded into the stands to plant a kiss on Boomer, the son who symbolizes just how much Phelps life has changed since a second drunken-driving arrest two years ago.Phelps held off Japans Masato Sakai with a time of 1 minute, 53.36 seconds, but that number was of little concern.The only thing that mattered was getting to the wall first.Four years ago, Phelps mistimed his finish in the wind-milling stroke he does better than anyone, gliding to the wall a little too long after his final whirl of the arms. That allowed Chad le Clos of South Africa to stunningly win gold in an event that Phelps had dominated for the better part of a decade.Phelps retired after the London Games, so it looked like he wouldnt get a chance to make up for his defeat. But when he decided about a year later to sstart competing again, the 200 fly was clearly the title he sought more than any other. Nike Air Max Zero Mens Sale. Le Clos was in the final again, thoroughly inspired himself by his mother and father, both battling cancer and in the stands cheering him on.But the South African could only manage fourth this time, also finishing behind bronze medalist Tamas Kenderesi of Hungary.The relay was much less dramatic.Conor Dwyer, Townley Haas and Ryan Lochte went out ahead of Phelps, handing off a commanding lead to the most decorated athlete in Olympic history.Phelps essentially spent the next 100 seconds or so soaking up the cheers. He was only the third-fastest swimmer on his team, but he was a full body length ahead of Britains James Guy when he touched in 7:00.66.The British claimed silver in 7:03.13, while Japan took the bronze in 7:03.50.Sure, Phelps hogged the spotlight on this night, but lets not forget two other very impressive swimmers.Ledecky took the most challenging step toward a feat thats only been done one other time, holding off Swedens Sarah Sjostrom to win the 200 freestyle and give the American star her second gold of the games.Debbie Meyer is the only female swimmer to capture the three longest freestyle events at a single Olympics, winning the 200, 400 and 800 at Mexico City in 1968. Ledecky looks like a lock to match Meyer, having already won the 200 and 400 titles and an overwhelming favorite in the 800, where shes the world-record holder and far faster than anyone else in the world.Katinka Hosszu is having quite an Olympics, too.The Hungarian known as the Iron Lady earned her third gold medal of these games with a victory in the 200 individual medley.This has been an Olympic of redemption for Hosszu, a long-time star at the world championships who always seemed to come up short on the biggest stage.Not anymore.Hosszu added to her wins in the 400 IM and 100 backstroke with a time of 2:06.58. Siobhan-Marie OConnor of Britain challenged Hosszu all the way but had to settle for silver. Maya DiRado of the United States held on for the bronze.---Follow Paul Newberry on Twitter at www.twitter.com/pnewberry1963 .
