RIO DE JANEIRO -- Unless some unknown cellphone video shows up, we are unlikely to ever see the putt Henrik Stenson made Friday morning -- the one he may look back on as a big factor in winning an Olympic gold medal.Television cameras were focused on a ruling taking place in a bunker on the third hole at the Olympic Golf Course when Stenson, seemingly miles from the cup, rolled in his putt for an unlikely par. On the previous hole, in horrid weather to begin the second round, he made a 40-footer for birdie.By the end of the round, the sun was out in Rio and a smile was on Stensons face. He wasnt leading, but he had put himself right in the thick of the Olympic golf tournament.And he was still a bit amazed about that long putt dropping in.It was so long that tournament computer information that pegged the putt at 108 feet was deemed to be inaccurate.No, (the computer is not) broken, Stenson said. I tell you, its not broken. I mean, I felt broken at the time.Stenson, 40, is bidding to win Olympic gold a month after capturing the Claret Jug at Royal Troon. His 3-under-par 68 left him 2 strokes back of leader Marcus Fraser of Australia, with Belgiums Thomas Pieters between them.It didnt seem that things would end up so well for Stenson earlier, when he began his round in cool, wet conditions. A steady rain greeted players for the first few hours of the day, and Stenson got caught in the worst of it.Our group and the groups around us probably got three of the toughest holes in those conditions there right at the start, said Stenson, who estimated his tee shot into the wind on the second hole went just 250 yards, leaving him a 220-yard 4-wood to reach the green.And he holed a 40-footer for birdie on No. 2. Then, at the third, his drive went into the water, and after a drop he managed to get a 4-wood to the very front of the green.Youre just standing there praying for a 2-putt bogey, he said. Before I know it, I think it found the bottom of the cup. Thats the longest putt Ive made in my career, I would say. First of all, its hard to get a putt that long on any green in the world, maybe St. Andrews on a double green, you can find one.Stenson finished his round with two bogeys and three birdies over the final five holes and lamented some missed opportunities.But given some of the problems he found on an otherwise off day, he was quite pleased to be in this position.Theres a lot of golf still to play, he said. Ive said before, I always prefer to be two ahead than two behind. If youre not there at the halfway turn, youve got more to make up for the next two rounds. But 36 holes, if youre playing good, you can obviously make up quite a few shots.This has become normal for Stenson of late. He won the BMW International in Germany early last month, had a good tournament at the French Open, and then dazzled at Royal Troon, where he had the best round on each of the last three days, including a major-tying 63 in the final round to beat Phil Mickelson by 3 at The Open.Two weeks later, he contended at the PGA Championship, and then set his sights on the Olympics, never putting down the significance of a victory here.Hes the man to beat, I reckon, said Englands Justin Rose, who is tied for fourth, 4 strokes off the lead. Hes in good shape, obviously ice-cold, and we all know when he gets into a rhythm as we saw at Troon, hes a pretty special player.It doesnt hurt that hes chasing a couple of golfers who are far less accomplished. Fraser, 38, has just three European Tour victories in his career. Pieters, 24, who played college golf at the University of Illinois, has two European titles.Well, you know hes going to shoot a good score, Pieters said. Hes a top-class player, No. [5] in the world. You know hes going to make a lot of birdies, so you have to just play your own game.That has worked pretty well for Stenson of late. And its impressive -- even if that long putt was fortunate.I did my homework, Stenson said of figuring out that putt. It wasnt like you could read every break. I just had to look kind of straight, a bit of left to right, coming back at the end, and you just kind of go with that feeling and hit it.The scary thing was that it was like 30 feet out and looking like it is stone dead. My caddie was attending the pin and he felt the same. It was just like tracking. He thought it was going to be a tap-in and just, like, came up and took a little dive into the cup -- which I wasnt against. Cincinnati Reds Gear .

SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- The four-star quarterback was a three-sport star in high school, and though that versatility may have kept him out of the zip code of five-stars a few years ago, DeShone Kizer says now playing baseball and basketball was the best thing to ever happen to him.It allowed me, one, to create the athletic ability that it takes to be able to adjust on the fly when youre playing at this high level, Kizer said last week. And two, Im learning more about the quarterback position every day than I ever have.Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly echoed those thoughts, saying that a few month away from the gridiron can declutter a players mind and help him think outside the box, a trait more valued for a quarterback than perhaps any other position in team sports.It keeps you sharp in competitiveness, in team sports, competing all year-round, Kelly said. Thinking in terms of other sports, there are definitely correlations that you can bring to the game, itself, from other sports. And I just think sometimes we become a little too specialized at the position, and I enjoy seeing guys that play some other sports.So how exactly did baseball and basketball sharpen Kizers football mind? And was he actually any good on the diamond or the hardwood? The more appropriate question may be: Just how good could he have been?We couldnt hide himToledo (Ohio) Central Catholic baseball coach Jeff Mielcarek was able to resist the temptation to use Kizer on the mound, but there was no point trying to hide him in the batting order. After so much interest from college football coaches forced Kizer to shut down his pitching arm -- which Mielcarek said maxed out in the 80s -- his sophomore year, Meilcarek put him in the outfield and hit him cleanup.Kizer threw a bullpen session for an assistant during his junior year, Mielcarek said, prompting a heart-to-heart between coaches over the budding stars use.One of our [assistant] coaches came in and said, Coach, DeShone -- we need to use him, Mielcarek recalled. And I said, Seriously? And I named three schools coming in that he was going to be auditioning for to throw for football, and I said, We havent used him all this time. What are we going to do now? This is silly. So no, were not going to do that.Kizer played an integral part on Central Catholics conference championship team in 2013, hitting an RBI double in the title game. Perhaps more impressively, he returned in 2014 for his senior year, just months away from starting his college football career.That year-round commitment earned Kizer the respect of opposing prep baseball coaches, said Mielcarek, who thinks Kizer could have been drafted into the major league baseball draft had he stuck with the diamond. And though football and basketball kept Kizer from turning baseball into a 12-month activity, his attitude during his limited stay with Mielcareks squad seemingly made up for lost time.Were playing summer baseball and DeShones not playing summer baseball because hes going to football camps and hes going to this and hes going to that, and nobody ever questioned what DeShone was doing, Mielcarek said, because DeShone not only will show you that when he shows up hes going to work harder than anybody else, but DeShone will also make certain that he gets those people on his side because he just says the right thing, he does the right thing. Its amazing.When Kizer was buried at No. 3 on the Notre Dame depth chart in the 2015 spring, he contemplated a move to baseball. He put out a feeler to Irish baseball coach Mik Aoki through teammate and Irish outfielder Torii Hunter Jr. before coming to terms with his day job.I went to the batting cages a couple of times, but never really fully got it in motion, I never ended up leaving, Kizer said. It was time to lock in and play my part as a backup at the time.A 6-4 rarityLike every quarterbback who dabbled in basketball, Kizer was a point guard.dddddddddddd The 6-foot-4 Kizer maxed out height-wise early, but the anomaly of a tall freshman distributor led to analogies that bordered on hyperbole.He knows where a guy is open when the guy doesnt know hes open, said former Central Catholic basketball coach Jim Welling, now the schools admissions director. DeShone was like a miniature Magic Johnson. Now, he wasnt 6-8 like Magic was, but he had peripheral vision and the ability to find open guys, and it was really uncanny because I had never seen anything like that before.Kizers father, Derek, played basketball at Bowling Green, and Welling said he thinks DeShone couldve surpassed his father at the college level.If there was one knock on Kizer, it was a suspect jump shot that he didnt get enough time to work on.When you go from 15 football games a year and then you go to a 25-30-game basketball schedule and then you go into a 25-30 (game) baseball schedule and then you have summers where everybody wants you to do summer activities, you really dont have time for player development like DeShone really needed, Welling said. If he had gotten that, I have no reason to believe that he couldnt have been recruited by the Big Ten, ACC or Big East.Kizers Notre Dame teammates echo that sentiment, with receiver C.J. Sanders coming away impressed by the paradox of Kizers hoops game whenever they play pick-up.Hes an athletic guy for his size, thats whats most surprising, Sanders said. Hes a big guy, like (230 pounds). Being able to move like that playing basketball is crazy.As a prep sophomore, Kizer was a captain. As a senior, he was league player of the year and third-team All-Ohio thanks to a stat-sheet-stuffing line of 11 points, 5.6 rebounds and 6.8 assists per game, according to the Toledo Blade.Lines like those were all the more amazing considering he often got a late start thanks to football playoff runs that bled into winter sports.Hes a guy that had a state tournament championship game on Friday night, and Sunday evening hes practicing basketball within two days with no reps, Welling said. Thats how anxious he was to get on the floor.The later, the better?Kizer may have been good enough to sign with Notre Dame, but he was only ESPN RecruitingNations 16th-ranked dual-threat quarterback in the 2014 class. Did his well-rounded background make it more difficult to master sports signature position?To go through all three sports in high school, I never really locked into one, so theres a lot of stuff that I wasnt able to learn in high school where people have preached it since theyve been 8 years old, Kizer said. So a lot of that new stuff got put on me my redshirt freshman year when I was mature enough to learn from it, and now its kind of put me at a higher learning curve now that Im in my 20s where things are a little easier to understand.Kizer is 9-4 as a college starter and, if all breaks right, could play on Sundays next fall. More than two years after Kizers signing day, 11 of the 15 QBs ranked ahead of him have switched either schools or positions.Is all this a credit to Kizers prep approach? Or does his college success just speak to his individual makeup?That mind works like a computer, Welling said of Kizer. He can retain stuff in basketball that you had to go over and over and over things and hopefully you think theyll get it in some point in time. In his case, he didnt have to do that. If you did it once, he had it.His process-ability skills are off the charts, and I think when you throw those three different sports together and youre processing like he has the ability to do, I would agree with him 100 percent that hes probably benefited from all three sports.
