    The Premier League of Darts is north of the border on night four, so Rod Studd has selected his five favourite Scottish throwers. Pánské Pharrell x Adidas Human Race NMD HU Trail Blank Canvas Boty Jádro Cerné/Nejhlubší Fialová AC7033 . Defending champion Gary Anderson heads back to his homeland for the Premier League on Thursday night, live on Sky Sports.Studd has witnessed a string of successful Scotsman through the years and he picks out his top five... Jocky Wilson Jocky Wilson is considered the finest Scottish player of all Jocky, you have to say, is the greatest Scottish arrow-smith of them all and part of the first golden era of darts. He was a member of the holy trinity of darts, along with Eric Bristow and John Lowe. The three of them went at it hammer and tongs between them.Twice the world champion, Jocky firstly beat Lowe in 1982 and then he defeated Bristow in a tremendous final in 1989. Jocky raced off into a 5-0 lead and Brissy came back, and then Jocky just about scrambled over the line. It was a classic final and probably the last hurrah for Wilson. A smile comes across the lips of anyone that knew him, once they mention the name Jocky. Rod Studd He will always be fondly remembered for that period in the 80s. Eric quite aptly described Jocky as a one-off and that is exactly what he was. A smile comes across the lips of anyone that knew him, once they mention the name Jocky. Some of the antics and great stories they could tell about him. Everyone remembers him so very fondly, that idiosyncratic throwing action, and he is of course sadly no longer with us.Gary Anderson Gary Anderson collected his second world title in January A two-time Scottish world champion, Gary indeed may become the first Scotsman to win the tournament on three occasions to surpass the great Jocky Wilson. He of course has taken the title in 2015 and 2016 and we have witnessed the blossoming of Anderson in the last 12-18 months.In the BDO, he never got beyond the Lakeside semi-finals, and fell short in the 2011 PDC final before finally ending his wait for a first World title in 2015. But now he is fulfilling that potential and has become one of the main players in the PDC world of darts. Anderson produces the first perfect nine dart leg of the World Championship against Jelle Klaasen in the semi-finals Twice a Premier League winner as well and undoubtedly taking his place in the list of great Scottish dartists, but now among the greatest players to have ever played the game. Hes gone from being Dream Boy back in the early 2000s to The Flying Scotsman and he really has been flying.Les WallaceMcDanger Wallace is famously the first ever left-handed player to win the World Championship, beating Marshall James in 1997. Only Mark Webster has followed since then as a left-handed champion, and he remains the only darts player to this day to win the tournament while wearing a kilt. Les Wallace was the first left-hander to win a world title To be honest, people look back at Les as a bit of a cartoon character. I think they forget that he beat Raymond van Barneveld and Mervyn King on the way to the final, the two aces in the BDO pack at that time. He won the 1998 World Masters too, beating Alan Warriner-Little, which was another big scalp. But after that, he didnt really have a lot of luck really. He only won two more matches at the Lakeside and disappeared off the darting scene.Les just edged out Ronnie Sharp and that maginficent moustache, which earned him the Pancho nickname.Jamie HarveyBravedart Harvey was one of the founder members of the PDC when the split came in 1993-94 and really for many years was one of the most colourful, engaging characters. You would get The Bonnie Banks O Loch Lomond as he came on - and the fans loved it. Harvey was a fans favourite during his entertaining spell in the sport Jamie was just an entertaining player. His level of success never reached the heights of some of the players weve got on the list. In fact, the best he ever did was reach the semi-finals of the World Matchplay and the World Championship in 1996. But if you ask someone to name a player from the mid 90s then Jamie Harvey will come up quite a lot.My favourite memory was a particular darts promo featuring Jamie. It was at the same time as the Mel Gibson film Braveheart in 1995. They recreated the scene when Gibson sprinted towards the camera, screaming like a madman, with a Saltire painted onto his face. Jamie had his face painted exactly the same, but then the camera panned out to reveal Jamie running through a forest, armed only with a single dart. I still chuckle about that from time to time.Peter WrightI toyed with the idea of Robert Thornton, who of course defeated Michael van Gerwen in last years World Grand Prix in Dublin. But Im going to pick Wrighty as the final Scottish player and partly to emphasise that he is Scottish. He was born just outside Livingston to Scottish parents and this accusation of being a plastic Scot is grossly unfair, just because he moved south of the border when he was very young. Peter Wright has become a serious contender despite his light-hearted image Lets not forget he partnered Gary Anderson to the final of the World Cup of Darts last summer when they were only beaten by Adrian Lewis and Phil Taylor, representing England. I know he was very proud to represent Scotland and was hoping to put one over the Auld Enemy.Peter Wright has not just become one of the great characters, but one of the great stars of the game in terms of his playing ability. He reinvented himself from 2010 onwards. That wild hair, which his wife Jo cultivated for him, then the flamboyant shirts and trousers to produce this character Snakebite. The way he milks the crowd, its great theatre. Wright brought the house down in Dublin after checking out on 161 in his match against James Wade Away from the oche, hes quite shy, and is quite literally all trousers and no mouth. But hes actually become a very serious darts player which people shouldnt forget as well.    Watch night four of the Premier League this Thursday, from 7pm on Sky Sports 1.  Or watch for £6.99 without a contract, on NOW TV.

Pánské Pharrell x adidas NMD Human Race Fear of God Boty Bílé/Cerné Prodej . -- Derrick Rose shook off poor shooting early to hit clutch shots late and Carlos Boozer had 20 points and 13 rebounds to lead the Chicago Bulls to a 104-95 preseason victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder on Wednesday night. . I cant pinpoint a date, but I do remember a player from my youth. Brian Downing was with the Chicago White Sox at a time when I listened to every game I possibly could on the radio. That particular season the late great Harry Caray was calling the White Sox games. RIO DE JANEIRO -- Inbee Park could tell right away Wednesday that this was not an ordinary golf tournament.Walking onto the practice range, the South Korean flag on her red shirt and the Olympic rings just about everywhere she looked, the jangled nerves made her realize that playing in the Olympics -- the first for womens golf since 1900 -- brought the kind of pressure she doesnt usually feel.On the golf course, Park was as unflappable as ever.Facing top competition for the first time in two months, Park was flawless in a round of 5-under 66 that left her one shot behind Ariya Jutanugarn of Thailand.Seiyoung Kim of South Korea also shot a 66.I was able to feel a lot of the players nerves when I was on the range and when I was playing out there, Park said. I havent played in a while, but this is not what I usually get all the time. I was able to tell -- everybody was quite proud to represent their country and quite excited and quite nervous at the same time.Jutanugarn, a four-time winner coming off her first major at the Womens British Open, kept her calm during a wild ride.She pulled a 6-iron into the native area left of the green on the par-3 fourth hole and made double bogey, quickly erasing birdies on the previous two holes. Jutanugarn followed with another 6-iron to 8 feet for eagle on the next hole, and she was on her way.I had one double, but I felt OK, Jutanugarn said. I want to play my game and not worry about it.A short birdie putt on the 16th gave her a one-stroke lead after an opening round noted for the heat and laborious pace of play. It took the final threesome just over 5? hours to complete the opening round.For the second straight week, a Brazilian native opened the golf competition. Miriam Nagl was picked to hit the first tee shot.Being in my home country and golf being back in the Olympic Games ... its just very special to me, she said. Nagl and Victoria Lovelady, the two Brazilians in the 60-player field, each shot 79.Womens golf was last part of the Olympics in 1900 in Paris, and then it was only a nine-hole competition among 10 wommen. Adidas NMD R1 CZ. These games are all about the South Koreans, who have dominated womens golf for the last generation. The maximum four players who qualified are among the top 10 in the womens world ranking, and there has been talk back home about sweeping the podium.Being a Korean womens golfer, I think we always have that kind of pressure on our shoulders, Park said. Its hard, because we play 30 events a year, and there isnt many weeks where all Korean golfers finish 1, 2, 3. Being able to do it in the Olympics would be something unreal, but obviously its going to be something thats very, very hard to do with all the great competitors around the world.At the same time, it is pressure for a lot of us, she said. It is a really hard one. But you know, we really cant help it.Spain got off to a strong start behind Carlota Ciganda (67) and Azahara Munoz (68), and Lexi Thompson led the three Americans at 68. Lydia Ko, the No. 1 player in womens golf, got into the picture only late in the day when she holed out with a 9-iron from 135 yards for eagle on the par-4 15th hole.It was my first eagle at the Olympics, Ko said after a 69. So I think its great.Park, 27, last competed on a big stage two months ago at the KPMG Womens PGA Championship, where she became the youngest player to qualify for the LPGA Hall of Fame. Park missed the cut and skipped the next two majors because of a thumb injury that has been bothering her all year.The time off allowed her to get ready for the Olympics. Park felt good in practice and carried that to the course, looking much like the player who has won seven majors.Park never came seriously close to bogey. Her bid for a fourth straight birdie spun out on the 13th hole, and she missed a 6-footer on the next hole. Park missed six birdie chances from 10 feet or under, though that presented more hope than frustration.I always like to deal with missed opportunity than not even having an opportunity, she said.
