For the first time in more than 60 years, the British Open is headed across the Irish Sea. Nike Air Max 90 Mens Trainers . The R&A announced Monday that golfs oldest championship will return to Royal Portrush in Northern Ireland for the first time since Max Faulkner won in 1951. That was the only time it was held outside Scotland or England since the Open began in 1860. "We have every confidence Royal Portrush will prove to be an excellent venue in every way," R&A chief executive Peter Dawson said. "There is passionate support in Northern Ireland and we expect there will be huge interest." Dawson said it was the "worst-kept secret," although one mystery remains -- the year. To bring the links course up to modern standards of a major championship, the R&A has recommended using the golf architecture firm Mackenzie & Ebert to create new 17th and 18th holes. Royal Portrush club members would have to sign off on the proposal, though that is likely to be a formality. The next available date is 2019. Dawson said it could be "a year or two longer than that." "It has been more than 60 years since the Open was played here, and its been too long," Dawson said. "And were very excited to be coming back." For years, there has been a quiet push to bring the Open back to Portrush and the movement picked up momentum with the success of three players from Northern Ireland. Graeme McDowell won the 2010 U.S. Open at Pebble Beach. Darren Clarke captured the British Open a year later at Royal St. Georges. Rory McIlroy won the U.S. Open in 2011 and then the PGA Championship in 2012. Throw in Padraig Harrington, and Irish golfers won seven of 22 majors during one stretch. What really caught Dawsons attention was when Royal Portrush staged a wildly successful Irish Open in 2012, which attracted some 130,000 fans for the week. And then Martin Ebert suggested the right changes to the links course to make it all work. More than just a golf course, the Open now requires room for such amenities as a television compound and a tented village. Dawson said the R&A would be investing several million pounds (dollars), without giving a more detailed estimate. "No Open venue is immune from the march of time," he said. "They all move and they all have to keep up. This isnt any different from that, except that it hasnt had an Open for a long time." Portrush also has held the Senior British Open six times, and is hosting the British Amateur this week. The British Open this year is being played at Royal Liverpool in Hoylake, which had gone 39 years until it returned to the rotation in 2006 with a popular win by Tiger Woods. Turnberry off the Ayrshire coast in Scotland went 17 years without an Open, despite a history that include the famous "Duel in the Sun" between Tom Watson and Jack Nicklaus. That required work on the roads to alleviate traffic. Dawson said the work involved to get Royal Portrush in shape for an Open "is a little bit more." "That perhaps reflects the time gap," he said. "Its over 60 years since the championship has been here. The requirements of a modern championship are very different from what they were then. But its something thats manageable."

With the Rangers already leading 2-0, Carey Price was taken down early in the second period of New Yorks 7-2 pounding of the Canadiens in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference final on Saturday afternoon. Nike Air Max 90 Sale Uk . He was attracted by the punishing defence, the strong running game and a coaching staff he trusted. The 49ers announced Thursday that Manningham had signed a two-year deal to join the team he helped knock out in the NFC championship game two months ago in their latest offensive upgrade at wide receiver. TAMPA, Fla. -- The Tampa Bay Lightning are gaining momentum entering the stretch run. Steven Stamkos and Ondrej Palat both had a goal and an assist to lead the Lightning past the Vancouver Canucks 4-3 on Monday night. Valtteri Filppula and Tom Pyatt also scored for the Lightning, who moved into a second-place tie with Montreal -- with one game at hand -- in the Atlantic Division after completing a 3-1-2 homestand. Ben Bishop extended his single-season team record with his 32nd win. "Great homestand, especially after you drop the first one," Tampa Bay coach Jon Cooper said. "Its not how you get there, you just need the points." Vancouver, 10th in the Western Conference, is 3-6-1 in its last 10 games. Alexandre Burrows scored two goals, and Jannik Hansen added a short-handed tally for the Canucks. "We know we still have a chance, but obviously we need to string wins together, and not just three, four or five," Hansen said. "We need to start winning games and a lot of them." Burrows had an assist on Hansens goal for a three-point game. He had a goal and two assists in Sundays 4-3 shootout win at Florida. After Pyatt scored midway through the third period, the Canucks got within one on goals by Burrows at 11:44 and Hansen at 15:16. "Weve still got to fix some things," Stamkos said. "You take a lead into the third we know, especially teams that are fighting for their playoff lives, theyre going to throw everything at us. We have to be a little smarter." Stamkos put the Lightning up 1-0 with a power-play goal from the low slot 17:56 into the game. Palat, who assisted on the goal, has five assists and nine points during a five-game point streak. Bishop made in-cllose rebound saves on Alexander Edler and Shawn Matthias late in the first. Nike Air Max 90 Hyperfuse Sale. After Eddie Lack stopped eight shots early in the second, Tampa Bay went ahead 2-0 when Palats pass went off sliding Canucks defenceman Ryan Stanton and into the net at 6:54. Filppula made it 3-0 with 9 seconds left in the second when his pass deflected off Stanton and past Lack. The centre has two goals and eight points during a five-game point streak. "The first one, hes in the middle of the ice, taking ice away," Canucks coach John Tortorella said. "If hes going to go down and try to take away that in the short ice in a two-on-one, hes got to be more off to the post so it cant happen that way. "The second one that goes in, its just a tough break. A little bit of puck luck there, but it doesnt matter. We didnt get points, and we need points." Burrows ended Bishops bid for a second consecutive shutout on a power-play rebound goal 5:44 into the third. Bishop got his fifth shutout this season in a 3-0 victory over New Jersey on Saturday. "You look at the checks and balances at the end of the day, it is who won and who lost. And we won," Cooper said. NOTES: The Lightning held a pregame ceremony honouring the 2004 Stanley Cup championship team. Tortorella coached Tampa Bay in 2004 and walked to centre ice to a loud ovation when he was introduced. He had dinner with his former players Sunday night. "Im not a big reminiscent-type guy, but when I sat with the guys last night and had that opportunity, it was truly a nice moment for me to be with them," Tortorella said. ... Stamkos has two goals in six games since he returned from a broken right shin. ... Filppulas goal was his 300th NHL point.
