Justin Thomas and Jon Rahm, on the third day of the FedEx St. Jude .
A recital with the putt of Justin Thomas on the third day from the FedEx St. Jude Invitational, where he only needed the final club 26 times to dispatch the day, propelled the Kentucky golfer towards the option of reaching the world number 1 if on Sunday he traces the four strokes ahead of the current leader, his compatriot Brendon Todd.
Thomas, 66 hits, needs the win to deprive Jon Rahm of reaching the PGA, the first big of the year that begins next Thursday, at the head of the world ranking. The Spanish golfer, unsuccessful throughout the Memphis tournament, signed 71 strokes and moves at the bottom of the table. It started with a bogey and closed on Saturday with two consecutive. The second nine holes, where two more errors and three birdies fell, showed the irregularity of his game this week, a facet that the young sensation usually controls.
In favor of the current monarch he plays that between Todd, a golfer who has already won two tournaments this course and who, after overcoming three years of yips, returned from position 2,000 in the world ranking to the top 50, and Thomas there are more people. Golfers as solvent as Rickie Fowler or Brooks Koepka, as well as Korean Byeong Hun An. Rory McIlroy, the other suitor, is also in the Memphis basement.
In a day with the field soaked, Greens that ended very heavy, and that allowed to make a result -Tom Lewis scored a 61- Todd kept the type by stopping the load of all his rivals, among whom Sergio García could have gotten.
The Castellón golfer started with four birdies in the first seven holes to peek into the top ten, until the 11th hole (par 3) of the Southwind TPC was crossed, the field that will shortly reach 6,000 balls overboard on the PGA Tour, since the Circuit incorporated in 2003.
Sergio’s shot went to the lake and three putts They left him a triple bogey that was an impossible slab to climb to give him a chance. It was the only blur on a brilliant day, where García took many greens and was very in tune with the putt. Rafa Cabrera Bello signed 75 shots and closes the table in this World Cup.

Obviously, Baltimore’s backfield is loaded at this point in time, so if the team is looking at Barner, it’s likely with designs of him playing a big role on special teams as some sort of return man. Now that the team has signed Barner, he will join one of the NFL’s scariest offenses, which is an interesting prospect for any veteran player at this point in his career.Kenjon Barner Stats
During a career with Oregon, Barner got the reputation of being one of the speediest players in college football and a constant big play threat. During his career, Barner put up 3,623 rushing yards and 41 touchdowns with the Ducks. Notably, he also put up 591 receiving yards and 7 touchdowns, pointing to the overall impact he made on the field with the team.
During his NFL career, Barner’s impact hasn’t been felt as strongly as it was in college, but he’s made a few plays. In time with the Carolina Panthers, Philadelphia Eagles, New England Patriots and Atlanta Falcons, he’s put up 568 total yards and 3 touchdowns.
At 31, the Ravens are now looking at giving Barner a shot to prove he’s got a little bit of juice left in the legs to help them with regard to hitting a few home runs on special teams or for the offense.De’Anthony Thomas Opted Out From Ravens
The reason the Ravens could be in the market for Barner? The recent opt out of Thomas, who could have been in the mix as a kick returner or punt returner for the team and a speedy member of the offense, but decided to defer his contract until 2021.

Currently, the league is planning to re-start with caution, and there will be no preseason as part of the agreement. That was something plenty of players were happy to see, but it’s clear not everybody is on board with the risk of playing this season. Thomas joins players like David Price from baseball and Avery Bradley, Spencer Dinwiddie and others in basketball who opted out of their re-starts this season.De’Anthony Thomas Statistics
Thomas started his career with the Oregon Ducks where he was a standout wide receiver and one of the best players in the PAC 12. He joined the Chiefs as a 4th round pick in 2014, and has put up 509 yards and 7 touchdowns in his career as a pass catcher. Thomas has done damage on special teams with 2,334 yards there in his career.
He made the PFWA’s All-Rookie team in 2014, and before that, was a player who collected plenty of PAC 12 awards, such as being first team in the league in 2011.
Now that the Ravens have signed Barner, the team has simply gone from one former speedy Ducks standout to another, which would be interesting to note.
