DUBAI, United Arab Emirates -- Victor Dubuisson showed his ability to compete in big tournaments when a sparkling 8-under 64 on Saturday gave him a one-shot lead in the World Tour Championship after three rounds.The Frenchmans two European Tour wins so far came at the 2013 and 2015 Turkish Airlines Open -- a $7 million Final Series event.Now 13 under after 54 holes, Dubuisson leads big-hitting Belgian Nicolas Colsaerts (66) and the English duo of Matthew Fitzpatrick (66) and Tyrrell Hatton (67).I like to play well in the big tournaments. There is more focus, Dubuisson said. Id rather win big tournaments than finish in top-10s in smaller ones.Overnight joint leader Francesco Molinari (70) was among a group of three players two shots behind Dubuisson. Also at 11-under 205 were Englands Lee Westwood (69) and Spains Rafa Cabrera Bello, who shot the best round of the tournament with a 9-under 63.After the start of the round was delayed by 50 minutes due to early-morning fog, the 26-year-old Dubuisson holed a wedge shot for an eagle two on the par-4 fifth hole, apart from seven birdies. His only blemish of the day came on the par-3 sixth, where he made a bogey.Its my best score to date. Ive played well, made the good putts at the right time, said Dubuisson, who improved to No. 93 after a third-placed finish last week in South Africa, his only top 10 on the European Tour in a difficult season.Fitzpatrick overcame a stretch in the middle where he made a bogey on the ninth and a double bogey on the 13th, while Colsaerts had two eagles in his round that also featured four bogeys.Defending champion Rory McIlroy shot a 4-under 68 and was frustrated he could not go any lower after a superb round of ball-striking.McIlroy, who closed with a bogey after hitting his second shot into the water on the par-5 18th, called it one of those days.He said: I think I turned a 62 into a 68 somehow ... I hit a lot of good shots and didnt really hole many putts.Race to Dubai leader Henrik Stenson (70) turned it around after being 3 over without a single birdie on the first 11 holes to close with five birdies in his last seven holes.The Swede improved to 5 under overall and managed to keep his nearest rivals within sight. Compatriot Alex Noren, third in the Race to Dubai, shot a 69 and was two ahead of him, while Danny Willett slipped to tie 51st at 1 over, virtually going out of the race.I didnt get off to a great start I would say, but came back quite nicely, Stenson said. Ive got to be pretty pleased with the way we managed to play on the way home. Cheap Air Max From China .

The flanker, who has played 65 times for France, is expected to be out for up to four months.Expect the revolving door at Toronto FC to keep turning. Manager Ryan Nelsen says he has not finished pruning the MLS team roster even in the wake of Darren ODea, Luis Silva and Danny Califf leaving the building. The three had a combined hit of US$726,650 against the salary cap of $2.95 million, but actually cost Toronto more since allocation money was used to pay down the wages that counted against the cap. "Obviously were a lot more healthy but no, theyre still a couple of situations that might have to happen because of salary cap and that," Nelsen said Tuesday from Los Angeles where Toronto plays at Chivas USA on Wednesday night. "But it was always going to happen, were having to break down the scars of the past, to put us in a position where we can move forward. We just cannot move forward under the old situation with the salary cap." While the salary cap surgery is not finished, quality is expected to come in the door. It seems likely Toronto will soon announce a marquee acquisition. While TFC officials have not publicly commented on reports that Uruguayan World Cup star Diego Forlan is a target, Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment CEO Tim Leiweke has talked of a "significant signing." The club is also taking another shot at landing young Argentine striker Maximiliano Urutti, among other signings. "We thought it potentially could take longer," Nelsen said of the salary cap relief. "But were actually now in a position now, very soon from now, where well be in a very healthy situations, with some really good up-and-coming players but with the financial situation where we can bring in players that can obviously help the team." A glance at Torontos salary figures suggests that fullback Richard Eckersley ($310,000) and backup goalie Stefan Frei ($200,000) are the next two pieces of the salary cap puzzle. While both are quality players, moving their contracts will be a challenge, especially given Frei has not played a league match since 2011 due to injury and stellar play of Joe Bendik this season. Torontos current big-ticket players are Dutch striker Danny Koevermans, who makes $1.663 million but only counts $368,750 against the salary cap as a designated player and Argentine midfielder Matias Laba, whose salary cap hit as a young designated player is $200,000. At 34 and coming back from knee surgery, Koevermans may not be a long-term factor. Money is not a problem at MLSE so stars can be had at a price. But there needs to be a quality supporting cast whose wages are not out of whack. The club could sign two more designated players and possibly slip in another young star if the league is so inclined to help with the red tape. ODeas wages were a salary-cap killer, well above the cap cost of a designated player. "To put it in perspective we could got Cristiano Ronaldo and Matias Laba on for less money," said Nelsen. The MLS salary cap cost of a DP -- Ronaldos current salary at Real Madrid is a reported $19 million a year -- and young DP is a combined $568,750, suggesting ODeas actual salary was even more than advertised. "The whole of Kansas Citys backline was on the equivalent of Darrens money," added Nelsen. "This is common sense kind of stuff here we have to do this to move forward." The ODea move to a team in Ukraine is "99 per cent done" pending a medical, according to Nelsen. ODea has not spoken publicly of his departure other than to tweet that he was discussing terms with another team. "Not what I want! Not got a choice! Ill update you when things are clearer!" Nelsen had a different view. "If you were getting the exact same amount of money to live in Toronto or Ukraine, where would you live? Of course its not what he wants, its not what most people want," Nelssen said.dddddddddddd"But the difference is that we couldnt re-sign him on the money he wanted -- nobody would -- and the Ukraine (team) ended up signing a deal that her was very happy with." Nelsen also said the team had not chased its captain. "If it wasnt his desire to leave, he wouldnt have left. But he got a really good contract. But as I said to Darren, were not going to force you out the door, Im not going to not play you or anything like that. We dont run like that. Hes making out very well on the deal and were making out very well on the deal. So its just a win-win situation." But it was clear to ODea, who was free to leave come January, that any new deal with Toronto would contain a significant paycut. "No MLS club in their right mind would go even near that contract," Nelsen said. But in Europe, where there is no salary cap, ODeas market price is higher. Nelsen also made a point of linking production to money. "The great thing in MLS and American sports is that if you get the money, you have to produce and you have to be as effective to be worth that money, And thats in any sport in America, thats just how it is." The inference was ODea was not worth it to TFC. Asked about why anyone would sign ODea to a contract that size given the leagues salary limitation, Nelsen said: "Youre asking the wrong person." The only other TFC players currently listed at $100,000-plus are forwards Robert Earnshaw ($155,150) and Justin Braun ($114,700) and midfielder-defender Darel Russell ($109,875). Striker Jeremy Brockie is not listed on the May 1 MLS Players Union salary list. Defenders ODea (listed at $456,250) and Califf ($165,000) and midfielders Silva ($105,400), Terry Dunfield ($120,000) and Hogan Ephraim ($180,000) have all moved on. Defender-midfielder Michael Thomas has arrived via trade from Sporting Kansas City on a more modest $60,715 salary. Defender Mark Bloom came via the NASL club Atlanta Silverbacks and so is likely an even bigger bargain. Nelsen calls them common sense acquisitions. "Theyre good players for the salaries theyre on," said Nelsen. "It just makes cap sense in terms of value." Its probably no coincidence that ODeas departure came in tandem with Eckersleys return from a three-money injury layoff. Two dozen players have left the club since the end of last season. The clubs attempts to upgrade the roster have been restricted by salary cap constraints, forcing a string of patchwork loans and signings while officials looked to do major surgery to remove unwanted contacts. All this has not helped the product on the pitch in the short-term. A short-handed Toronto was exposed in a 3-0 loss at Sporting Kansas City on Saturday, a game that saw the home side string a dozen passes together in constructing the attack that led to the final goal. Toronto (2-9-7) came into the game without ODea, who had flown back to Toronto the day of the game. Nelsen agreed that the sudden changes in the team might have affected his players but insisted the upheaval was necessary. "If this club wants to get in a position where the players want to potentially win games, then these moves have to be made. They have to be done. And thats life." Toronto is 2-19-11 since July 18, 2012, the last time it registered a league win at BMO Field. Chivas (3-11-5) is playing its fourth game in two weeks, returning home after an 0-1-2 road trip that included a 1-1 tie in Montreal. Toronto will get Canadian internationals Jonathan Osorio, Doneil Henry, Ashtone Morgan and Kyle Bekker back from the Gold Cup. But midfielder Reggie Lambe is suspended after his red card in Kansas City. Toronto continues a busy portion of the schedule Saturday when it entertains Thierry Henry and the New York Red Bulls (9-7-4). ' ' '
