Whatever else Jordan Spieth’s career yields – and expect it to be plenty – there will Michael Stone Womens Jersey never be anything as remarkable as this. The 23-year-old will go to the US PGA Championship in under a month’s time needing only that title to complete the Grand Slam. If that seems partly logical given Spieth’s talent and ferocious mental strength, hard facts do a huge disservice to a truly astonishing afternoon on Merseyside.At the end of it all, he became the youngest recipient of the Claret Jug since 1979. It is fitting that the man who prevailed then, Seve Ballesteros, had a propensity to play the central character in a drama. If a scriptwriter had delivered a script for this, the conclusion to the 146th Open Championship, the odds are it would have been rejected on the grounds of being fanciful.Spieth is the Open champion who found solace amongst equipment trucks when the watching world wondered what on earth he was doing. He is the player who, from the point of a meltdown which conjured parallels with Jean van de Velde at Carnoustie, pulled himself back from the brink. Jack Nicklaus, a man who knows enough about major victories to have sampled 18 of them, heralded Spieth’s “great display of guts, determination and skill”.Anger, desire, energy: Jordan Spieth finally silences the devil on his shoulder Majors might not come easy to anyone but Spieth triumphed here in the most bewildering manner possible. No wonder they call him the Golden Child. At times on Sunday he played so poorly that it looked impossible he could win. But win he did and win he does; now three times http://www.officialarizonacoyotes.com/Adidas-Michael-Stone-Jersey in major tournaments since the start of 2015.Sympathy is due, and huge chunks of it, for Matt Kuchar. The 39-year-old has never won a major and is now entitled to question whether he ever will, having watched Spieth defy logic on a first-hand basis. It is perhaps no exaggeration to suggest previously neutral onlookers swayed towards Kuchar as Spieth took part in the 13th-hole scene that threatened to define the tournament. Instead, it roused Spieth to the level where he was inspired. Psychologists should write theses on this young man.How easy to despair and lose concentration after such an error. But Shrubsole remained icily cool – at least on the outside. The next delivery had that deadly quality again; it was on target. The bails lit up and the celebrations could commence. Shrubsole with six for 46 was the player of a breathtaking match.This was one of the great Lord’s finals and there was a buzz around St John’s Wood before a ball was bowled. On the Wellington Road the ticket touts were out in force and they seemed more eager to buy than sell. Not even Rachel Heyhoe Flint, one of the world’s great optimists and the captain of England in the first World Cup final in 1973 – they were two years ahead of the men – would have dared to envisage this.Heyhoe Flint, a wonderful pioneer who died in January, was honoured before the start of a match that already felt like a celebration and a major landmark of the women’s game. Clare Connor, the head of women’s cricket Dennis Rasmussen Womens Jersey at the England and Wales Cricket Board, joked as she looked out at the stands filling up, that “my work is done”. In fact she never rests.The Recap: sign up for the best of the Guardian's sport coverage Soon Eileen Ash (née Whelan) who made her debut for England against Australia at Northampton in 1937, rang the bell in front of the bowler’s bar. At the age of 105 she did so with a vigour that rivalled the efforts of Henry Blofeld during the Test match against South Africa. Apparently she puts her longevity down to a combination of yoga and wine, a regime that Blofeld half understands.Goswami was inspirational in the field for India. She is one of the two http://www.officialchicagoblackhawks.com/Adidas-Dennis-Rasmussen-Jersey vastly experienced cornerstones of the Indian side along with the captain, Mithali Raj. Both of them played in India’s previous World Cup final in Pretoria in 2005; both are 34 and playing in their last World Cup. How close they came to that Authentic Brian Propp Youth Jersey trophy.Goswami could not have bowled better. Raj, who made her debut for India in 1999, was run out by a slick piece of fielding by Nat Sciver. She seemed not to recognise the danger; there was no last-minute acceleration and certainly no dive. Maybe no one fielded with such athleticism when she started playing the game.Even in defeat India’s performances may change how women’s cricket is viewed in their country. World Cup finals involving India tend to do that. In 1983 there was no real enthusiasm for one-day cricket in India, whereupon Kapil Dev’s side, against the odds, defeated the mighty West Indies in the World Cup final at Lord’s. Suddenly Kapil was king and the entire country was enchanted by the one-day game.Likewise in 2007 they were a bit sniffy about this newfangled Twenty20 idea until one September night in Johannesburg, when India defeated Pakistan in the first World Twenty20 final, after which the game would never be the same again.Somehow one senses this World Cup final at Lord’s on Sunday, which prompted a massive TV audience in India, will also have major ramifications. Anyone fancy a women’s Indian Premier League?England captain Heather Knight predicted her team’s historic world cup victory will transform the face of cricket in Britain after a pulsating finale at Lord’s in front of the largest crowd ever to watch a women’s game in this country.More than 27,000 spectators piled into the home of cricket, many of them women and young girls, to witness one of the most remarkable comebacks ever seen at Lord’s, led by 25-year-old Anya Shrubsole.With an estimated TV audience of more than 100 million watching as they capitalised on an India collapse, Knight, Shrubsole and their teammates will be propelled to new levels of fame and recognition, in the form of improved sponsorship and advertising deals.As Knight lifted the trophy and thanked a boisterous crowd, still in place 20 minutes after the finish, there was a sense that this could be a groundbreaking summer for women’s sport. Johanna Konta’s rousing run to the Wimbledon semi-finals set the tone and England’s football team are among the favourites for Euro 2017, before the rugby World Cup takes centre stage next month.
