DUBLIN, OHIO – 70-year-old Jack Nicklaus had a blast playing with the best golfers in the world in Wednesday’s annual Skins Game at the Memorial Tournament at Muirfield Village Golf Club. He was greeted with very loud applauses by the gallery.

The players used the Skins Game as a final tuneup for the tournament. They each had microphones and their comments and interviews with The Golf Channel were heard on loud speakers on the course.

Nicklaus is a very proud man but does not like playing in pro-am events  because he can’t play the way he did in the 60′s, 70′s, 80′s and early 90′s when he was dominating at times. But everybody in the Skins Game enjoyed being on the course with him.

Jack doesn’t mind playing on his course and in his hometown area of Columbus, Ohio. After all, he designed and built Muirfield Village Golf Club and created the Memorial Tournament which is highly regarded as one of the PGA Tour’s most popular stops by all the players.

Nicklaus did not win any skins, those honors went to Phil Mickelson (9), Tiger Woods (6) and Zach Johnson (3) won all of them that were available.

The Golden Bear from Upper Arlington played well, but he was on the course with four of the world’s best players: Phil Mickelson, Sean O’Hair, Kenny Perry and Ernie Els. They were competing for $25,000 which benefits The First Tee. Also competing in the other group were: Zach Johnson, Rory McIlroy, Jim Furyk and Steve Stricker.

“The Kid,” Ken Griffey, Jr. retires after 22 seasons and age 40

compiled from staff and wire reports.

Ken Griffey, Jr. unexpectedly retired on Wednesday from baseball on his own terms but still held in the highest regard by teammates, umpires, fans and opposing players.

At age 40, he was relegated to part-time duty and had little pop in his bat and he hadn’t played in a week.

Junior never went to Safeco Field on Wednesday. He simply released a statement through the Seattle Mariners media relations department, that he was done playing. The Mariners were getting ready to play the Minnesota Twins.

So after 22 seasons, 13 All-Star appearances, 630 homers (fifth all-time) and 1,836 RBI’s. He is a certain Hall of Famer.

Griffey was a star player when he was Seattle’s number 1 pick in the 1987 draft. Junior also played for his hometown Cincinnati Reds and the Chicago White Sox. This was his second tour of duty with the Mariners.

Griffey played in 1,685 games with the Mariners and hit .292 with 417 homers, most coming in the homer-friendly Kingdome, and 1,216 RBI’s. He won the AL MVP in 1997 and basically saved the franchise that was very much in danger of relocating when he first came to the majors.

The Seattle Mariners organization put Griffey’s uniform number 24 in the dirt behind second base and showed a 5-minute video tribute to a standing ovation before the game. The players said that winning the game on Wednesday for Griffey was a must, which they did 2-1 in 10 innings over Minnesota.

The Columbus Crew rebounded from its lone loss of the season last Saturday to secure a 2-2 draw with San Jose Wednesday night in a very lively match at Buck Shaw Stadium in Santa Clara, California.

Columbus came out strong and in the fourth minute, right back Jed Zayner’s cross fell at the feet of Guillermo Barros Schelotto, who held off two defenders and put a shot on goal. Joe Cannon pushed the rebound aside, but the ball scooted to Jason Garey in the goal area, who centered the ball to his right to an uncovered Eddie Gaven for the easy tap in.

The Earthquakes would equalize leass than a minute later. San Jose’s Andre Luis came up with the loose ball on the right side and push a pass to midfielder Arturo Alvarez, who hit a low, hard shot that just beat Crew goalkeeper William Hesmer at the near post.

In the 70th minute, the Crew regained the lead when Schelotto’s corner kick found the head of Chad Marshall, who jumped above a crowd of players and headed home his first goal of the season.

In the 79th minute, San Jose would again respond with a tying goal when Bobby Convey’s corner kick found Scott Sealy, who then headed the ball across the goal to Chris Mondolowski, who headed it home for his sixth goal of the season.

The Crew is now 6-1-3 (21 pts) on the season and is still unbeaten on the road (2-0-3).

Phoenix just came off a very controversial season with Wayne Gretzky leaving  just before the season and the team’s future in Arizona in doubt.

Under new head coach Dave Tippett, who was hired by Maloney, set franchise records with 50 wins and 107 points and made the playoffs for the first time since 2002.
