Na cruises to win at Charles Schwab Challenge

Monday, May 26, 2019 | Associated Press

FORT WORTH, Texas — Kevin Na always believed he could win at Colonial, so he paused to visualize his name on the Wall of Champions at the first tee before making another run at it.

The South Korean-born American will get to read his name on that wall next year.

Na birdied four of the first eight holes and shot a 4-under 66 for a four-shot victory over Tony Finau on Sunday on the cozy course made famous by Ben Hogan, securing his third career PGA TOUR win and second in 10 months.

“On the first tee, I saw that wall, looked at the names, right below Justin Rose,” Na said, referring to the defending champion. “And in my head, I engraved my name on it. I was just trying to visualize success before I teed off.”

Daniel Hemric idolized Dale Earnhardt as a kid. Now he wants to drive like him


When Daniel Hemric was growing up in Kannapolis, dreaming of becoming a NASCAR driver, Friday afternoons were hard. A long week of school would be nearly over, but the last few minutes of his final class seemed to last forever.

“I couldn’t wait to get out of school on Friday,” Hemric said, “to go back to the track on Friday night.”

Hemric was in kindergarten at the time.

Hometown kid Hemric looks to fulfill All-Star race dream

Associated Press | By Steve Reed

CONCORD, N.C. (AP) — The idea of having even a slim chance to race his way into the NASCAR All-Star race this weekend at Charlotte Motor Speedway seems surreal for Daniel Hemric.

After all, this is the track where it all started for the 28-year-old rookie Cup Series driver.

He grew up a few miles down the road in Kannapolis, North Carolina, and raced go-karts at CMS when he was 7 years old. He watched Jimmie Johnson win the All-Star race here from the grandstand. And this is where he ultimately put himself on the auto racing map by winning the Legends Million in 2010, collecting a $250,000 first place prize — the largest paycheck at the time in Legends car racing.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (MAY 9, 2019) — PROSPORT Management has signed a marketing representation agreement with New York Jets running back/wide receiver Ty Montgomery, who becomes the agency’s first NFL client. Montgomery signed with the Jets in April after spending three-and-a-half seasons with the Green Bay Packers and a half-season with the Baltimore Ravens.

Montgomery took the NFL by storm in 2016 when he moved from his drafted position of wide receiver to become the Green Bay Packers starting running back in the middle of the campaign. He went on to rack up over 800 total yards from scrimmage, while averaging 5.9 yards per carry. Shouldering the workload in the Packers backfield, the 2015 third-round draft pick also set an NFL record for most yards after contact (5.1) during a single season. Montgomery’s ability to switch positions mid-year helped the Packers reach the NFC Championship game.

Versatility has always been Montgomery’s forte. He was named to the 2013 NCAA All-American team as a kick returner, as a junior at Stanford. In the NFL, Montgomery has started and produced at running back, wide receiver and kick returner—amassing a total of 2,618 all-purpose yards in four seasons.

Off the field, Montgomery has formed his own 501(c)(3) charitable foundation titled My 10 Percent, that supports and empowers the forgotten youth in society by giving them hope for a future that they desire and faith that what they desire is possible. His charitable works include supporting foster care initiatives, working to fight the epidemic of human trafficking, and various other programs that support forgotten youth.
