European Tour's struggles at home continue

European Tour's struggles at home continue

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) The European Tour has announced a 45-tournament schedule for 2013 that reflects ongoing financial difficulties in countries like Spain and the potential for new markets in Russia and South Africa.

For the first time, there will be six tournaments in South Africa, including the season-opening Nelson Mandela Championship next month. Other new tournament venues include Russia and Turkey.

But the tour will have six fewer tournaments in Spain than two years ago and won't feature the Czech Open. It is also dropping the Singapore Open and adding the Hong Kong Open next season.

The Race to Dubai will remain in place, despite criticism this year when top-ranked Rory McIlroy won it with two tournaments remaining. It will, however, provide bonus points for those taking part in the final three events.

Juan Soto crushes a homer in the first at-bat of his first-ever start

Juan Soto, the highly-regarded 19-year-old Nationals' prospect, got his first major league start of his career tonight. 

How did it go, you ask? Surely it would take Soto - who was in Single-A less than two weeks ago - some time to adjust? 

What were you doing at 19??
