RIDGEDALE, Mo. Willie McGee Cardinals Jersey . -- Jeff Sluman and Fred Funk teamed to win the Champions Tours Legends of Golf on Sunday, and Jim Colbert and Jim Thorpe topped the Legends Division for players 65 and older. Sluman and Funk finished with a 6-under 48 at rainy Top of the Rock, the first par-3 course used in a PGA Tour-sanctioned event, to beat Jay Haas and Peter Jacobsen by a stroke. Sluman holed a 6-foot par putt for the victory on the final hole. "For some reason Ive always done well in these team-type events," Sluman said. "I dont know what it is." The winners finished at 20-under 159. They opened with an 11-under 61 in better-ball play on the regulation Buffalo Ridge course and had a 50 on Saturday on the par-3 layout. Sluman also won last year, teaming with Brad Faxon in Savannah, Georgia. "Maybe Ive got a good eye for partners," Sluman said. Funk was quick to return the complement. "Hes the common denominator," Funk said. Sluman won for the sixth time on the Champions Tour, and Funk for the ninth. Haas and Jacobsen, the second-round leaders, shot 50. Haas missed an 8-foot birdie putt on the 17th hole of the day. "Im disappointed because I hit a beautiful iron in there and it was as easy a putt as you can get, straight up the hill, and I just pulled it a little bit," Haas said. "Were mixed emotions right now. Were very happy to have finished second, but we had an opportunity. You just dont get that many, so its nice to take advantage of them when you do. Sluman and Funk had a 1-under 26 in the opening alternate-shot nine and closed with a 5-under 22 in the best-ball nine. "It seemed like they kept hitting it to three feet. The first five or six holes they hit it to three feet and made birdie," Jacobsen said. "Youre not going to get more clutch than those two guys." Craig Stadler and Kirk Triplett closed with a 52 to finish third at 14 under, the Kentucky duo of Russ Cochran and Kenny Perry was 13 under after a 49. In the nine-hole Legends finale, Colbert and Thorpe had a 4-under 23 in better-ball play for a three-stroke victory over Bruce Fleisher and Larry Nelson. Colbert and Thorpe finished at 11 under for 45 holes. Colbert won the then-Demaret Division for players 70 and older, teaming with Bob Murphy. "I couldnt ask for a better partner because I know hes a fighter," Thorpe said. "This guys got so much fire, so much fight in him." Jack Nicklaus and Gary Player were fifth at 5 under. "I think Gary played reasonably well. I didnt," Nicklaus said. "I got worn out yesterday and I didnt play very well and I played very poorly today. I dont think we played particularly well in total. We felt like we could both play better than that, but we just didnt." Sluman and Funk each earned $230,000, and Colbert and Thorpe got $60,000 each. "The tournament was a lot of fun," Funk said. "It was just a real treat. It turned out to be really fun and a real treat to play this par 3. And it is a little nerve-wracking, like yesterday, with the alternate shot because it just seems to put more pressure on you." Carlos Martinez Cardinals Jersey . Alfredo Simon lowered his ERA to 0.86, and the Reds beat the Chicago Cubs 4-1 Friday for their 16th win in their last 17 games at the Friendly Confines. Chris Carpenter Cardinals Jersey . -- Barry Bonds is all set to return to the San Francisco Giants. http://www.baseballcardinalsauthority.com/Whitey-Herzog-Jersey/ . Kerr said he had dinner with Jackson, his former coach with Chicago and the new Knicks team president, on Friday night and they talked again Saturday. Kerr is in New York to work the game between the Brooklyn Nets and Toronto Raptors for TNT.As Hull and Sheffield Wednesday prepare to do battle for a place in the Premier League, we bring you the ultimate guide to the Sky Bet Championship play-off final - live on Sky Sports. Saturdays Wembley showdown has been billed as the £170m match with a spot among Englands elite, as well as unrivalled riches, waiting for the victor at the end of the 90 minutes or more.Steve Bruces Tigers will be looking for an instant return to the Premier League after being relegated at the end of the 2014/15 season while Carlos Carvalhals Owls have been absent from the top flight since the 1999/00 campaign. So how did they make it to Wembley, who is available for the game and what does Sky Sports Football League expert Ian Holloway have to say? Read on to find out...How did they get here?The two sides had differing seasons, with Hull sitting pretty in the automatic places until as late as February before slipping into the play-off spots while Sheffield Wednesday surged into sixth and held off the likes of Cardiff and Ipswich to seal sixth place and a shot at promotion. Andrew Robertson, Jake Livermore and Tom Huddlestone celebrate after the first-leg at the iPro Stadium. The Tigers faced Derby in their semi-final and stormed into a 3-0 lead during the first leg at the iPro Stadium with goals from Abel Hernandez, Andrew Robertson and a Jason Shackell own goal. And though the Rams came storming back into the tie at the KC Stadium, taking a 2-0 half-time lead after Johnny Russell and Robertsons own goal, they failed to find an elusive third. Highlights of the Sky Bet Championship play-off semi-final second leg between Hull City and Derby County. It was a similar story for Wednesday, who dominated Brighton in the first leg thanks to great strikes from Ross Wallace and Kieran Lee but were given a scare early on by their opponents during the return fixture at the Amex Stadium. Ross Wallace set Sheffield Wednesday en route to victory against Brighton The Seagulls controlled the opening period but though Lewis Dunk finally pulled one back to raise hopes of a fightback, Wallace restored Wednesdays two-goal aggregate cushion nine minutes later and it proved enough. Highlights of the Sky Bet Championship play-off semi-final second leg between Brighton and Sheffield Wednesday. Play-off previous Hulls last play-off appearance came in the 2007/08 season where they were promoted to the Premier League following a 1-0 victory over Bristol City at Wembley after Tigers legend Dean Windass scored his now-famous 38th minute volley. Highlights of the 2008 Championship play-off final between Bristol City and Hull. Prior to that, Hull had lost in the 2001/02 Division Three play-off semi-final to Leyton Orient, but will be making their fourth visit to Wembley in the last eight years - their last being the 3-2 FA Cup final defeat against Arsenal in May 2014.Sheffield Wednesday are yet to play at the new Wembley, but are unbeaten in their last five appearances in the play-offs. Their previous campaign came in the 2004/05 season where they were promoted to the Championship after beating Hartlepool 4-2 in the League One play-off final at Cardiffs Millennium Stadium. Head-to-headThese two could not be separated in the regular season, with both league meetings ending level. The sides drew 1-1 at Hillsborough in October with star strikers Fernando Forestieri and Abel Hernandez on the scoresheet - the latter accidentally injuring referee Keith Stroud - while the reverse fixture at the KC Stadium produced a stalemate.Saturday will see the 50th meeting between Hull and Sheffield Wednesday and the Owls edge the overall record, winning 20 games to the Tigers 11, with 18 draws. Highlights of the Championship play-off semi-final first leg between Derby and Hull at the iPro Stadium. Roger Maris Jersey. The managersSteve Bruce could become the first ever manager to win four promotions to the Premier League, having previously done so twice with Birmingham - once via the play-offs - and having steered Hull to automatic promotion at the end of his first season in charge in 2013.But the former Manchester defender is sure his own experience - and that of his players over the last few seasons - will stand them in good stead. Steve Bruce could win promotion for the fourth time in his managerial career - more than anyone else. Ive been fortunate, near enough to 1,000 (games) as a player and something like 800 as a manager and in among that lot Ive had a few big games, Bruce said.Weve got a squad that has been there (Wembley) before in the last couple of years; lets hope thats a bit of an advantage. Weve got some good players and lets hope we can achieve what we want to achieve.That is in stark contrast to Wednesday manager Carlos Carvalhal - whom Bruce admitted he had not heard of ahead of his appointment in June 2015 - but the Owls boss has had play-off success in his homeland, winning promotion to the Portuguese top flight with Vitoria Setubal in 2003/04. Sheffield Wednesday manager Carlos Carvalhal was relatively unknown when he arrived at Hillsborough. Carvalhal has certainly made himself known after a stellar season with the Owls and has - in his own words - awoken the giant. We have achieved something. I remember we was in 19th in the league, so we have grown together - me, the staff, the owner and the fans like a team, Carvalhal said after the semi-final second leg.The self-confidence of the club is much higher this season. The club was sleeping and we have woken up the giant. The final is something that we deserve but its not finished yet.Team newsBruce has confirmed goalkeeper Allan McGregor (back) will not recover in time to feature with Eldin Jakupovic the man to take his place, but every other outfield player is fit and in contention.Manchester United loanee Nick Powell remains an absentee due to a thigh problem with David Meyler, Sam Clucas, Harry Maguire and Arsenal loanee Chuba Akpom among those pushing for recalls to the starting line-up. Eldin Jakupovic is set to start between the posts for Hull Carvalhal says his players are fresh and ready to go - but the Owls boss faces a midfield dilemma.Alex Lopez partnered Kieran Lee at the Amex but was substituted at half-time in the second leg, with Sam Hutchinson catching the eye. On loan Aiden McGeady has been deemed surplus to requirements and has already met up with the Republic of Ireland squad to begin preparations for Euro 2016.Ian Holloways key menHull City - Moses Odubajo Moses Odubajo is Hull Citys key man, according to Ollie He was sensational in the first-leg against Derby and is progressing into a top-class attacking full-back. He reminds me of Seamus Coleman, who I had at Blackpool. The way he flies up and down the wing will give Sheffield Wednesday all sorts of problems.Sheffield Wednesday - Fernando Forestieri Fernando Forestieri could be key for Sheffield Wednesday, thinks Ian Holloway He links the play between midfield and attack. Hes so crucial to the way Sheffield Wednesday play. Theres so much talent in his boots - Premier League level. I cant believe Watford let him go. Ive thoroughly enjoyed watching him play this season and the crowd love him. Its a match made in heaven.Match stats Sheffield Wednesday players celebrate after the Sky Bet Championship Play Off semi final at Brighton. It is the first time the second tier play-off final has been contested by two Yorkshire clubs.It is 5,859 days since Sheffield Wednesdays last Premier League game - a 4-0 final day win v Leicester at Hillsborough on May 14, 2000 (relegation had been confirmed in the previous game).Hull go into the game having won five of their last eight games (D1 L2).Sheffield Wednesdays only defeat in last seven games was 2-1 to Wolves on the Championships final day, having made 10 changes from their previous game.Sheffield Wednesday are making their first appearance at Wembley since the 92-93 season, when they played at the stadium on four occasions (W1 D1 L2), including losing both the League Cup and FA Cup finals to Arsenal.BettingHull are 5/4 favourites with Football League sponsor Sky Bet to secure promotion within 90 minutes as Sheffield Wednesday are rated 12/5 outsiders, while the clash is 21/10 to go to added time. With both league meetings ending in draws, promotion to be settled in extra-time is a 6/1 chance while a penalty shoot-out is considered a real possibility at 7/2.Abel Hernandez, who has four goals from his last five appearances, heads the first goalscorer betting at 4/1 while Fernando Forestieri and Gary Hooper are considered the Owls main threats at 6/1 apieceOllies verdictWill it be the experience and strength in depth that Hull City have in abundance that will shine on the day or will it be the surprise package in Sheffield Wednesday, who have a little bit more flair about them? I cant wait to find out. Its going to be a fascinating game. Sheffield Wednesdays Ross Wallace celebrates scoring the opening goal against Brighton at Hillsborough. Ive just got a sneaky feeling Wednesday, who believe theyre on the way back, will be celebrating in the Wembley sunshine on Saturday after a dramatic extra-time victory.
