Imagine winning a golf tournament where a victory gets you a Tiffany & Co. crown placed upon your head.Two years ago, at the inaugural LPGA UL International Crown golf tournament in Owings Mill, Maryland, the Spanish team of Belen Mozo, Carlota Ciganda, Azahara Munoz and Beatriz Recari wore the crowns with pride after capturing all four of their singles matches on the final day to win by a total of four points.The tournament came to be with the intention of giving the best players in the world the opportunity to represent their country, since the Solheim Cup only allows qualifying players from Europe and the United States to participate.This year, the biennial tournament will take place in Chicago at the Merit Club on July 21-24. For golf fans, this is a great opportunity to see sportsmanship mixed in with national pride.To help you become acquainted with the tournament, here is a list of what you need to know about how teams qualify, the format, which team has the best chance to win and whos the underdog.How teams qualifyUsing the Rolex World Ranking system, the four top players from the top eight countries (determined by the combined rank of its top four) qualify. Countries needed a minimum of four ranked players to be eligible by the time rankings were published, which was April 4 of this year. This means even World No. 1 Lydia Ko will not have the chance to represent New Zealand.?FormatThe competition takes place over four days. The first three days are a four-ball competition where each match is worth two points for a win and one point for a halve. After the completion of the four-ball, the top four teams and one wild card team compete in singles matches. The teams will be reseeded based on how many points they earned in the four-ball competition and every team member will play in a singles match.The total points earned in the four-ball and singles matches will determine the winner.Teams playing in seed order1. South Korea: Sei Young Kim, In Gee Chun, Amy Yang, So Yeon Ryu2. The United States: Stacy Lewis, Lexi Thompson, Gerina Piller, Cristie Kerr3. Japan: Haru Nomura, Mika Miyazato, Ayaka Watanabe, Ai Suzuki4. Australia: Minjee Lee, Su Oh, Karrie Webb, Rebecca Artis5. Chinese Taipei: Teresa Lu, Candie Kung, Yani Tseng, Cheng Ssu-Chia6. Thailand: Ariya Jutanugarn, Moriya Jutanugarn, Pornanong Phatlum, Porani Chutichai7. China: Shanshan Feng, Xi Yu Lin, Jing Yang, Simin Feng8. England: Charley Hull, Melissa Reid, Holly Clyburn, Jodi Ewart ShadoffTop team pickSouth Korea has a strong team -- each of its players has had considerable success this year. Sei Young Kim has won twice this year and won three times during her rookie season in 2015. In Gee Chun is in her rookie year but has five top-three finishes. Amy Yang has five third-place finishes this year, her latest being at the U.S. Womens Open. So Yeon Ryu has played steadily all year with six top-10 finishes. All of these players are ranked inside the top 12 in the world.The underdogEngland might be last in the lineup, but the team has players experienced in match play settings. Of the four players, Charley Hull, Melissa Reid and Jodi Ewart Shadoff all have represented England in the Solheim Cup.Match play requires a different type of mental toughness than stroke play since it consists of individual holes won, not the total of strokes. So while a player might shoot 80 had she kept score, she could still win the match based on if she wins more holes than her opponent.Hull and Reid have played in two Solheim Cups, while Shadoff has played in one. Each of them have played on teams together when Europe won, so their experience of playing golf in a team setting and in match play will work in their favor.In addition, match play has seen major upsets when unexpected players rise to the occasion. Two years ago, Spain was ranked fifth going into the tournament and prevailed. Anything can happen.The International Crown is a fantastic event for the LPGA because it adds an element of surprise and drama that regular individual stroke play does not. So please, no emails chastising me if England loses and you put money on it to win! I warned you: This will be an exciting tournament. Ronde Barber Jersey .

LOUIS -- Roman Polak was celebrating even before Alexander Steen scored the winning goal in Saturdays 4-2 win over the Carolina Hurricanes. Justin Evans Jersey . White came in fourth place in the event. He was the two-time defending gold medallist. The gold medal went to Swiss snowboarder Iouri Podladtchikov. England beat Argentina 27-14 but that scoreline tells little of a match which was packed with incident, controversy and ultimately, courage. Here we look at the key moments in the match and assess their significance as England stretched their winning run to 13 matches.Elliot Daly is red carded in the fourth minute as Senatore lands on his neck and backThere was an eerie silence as the TMO went through the various angles to show referee Pascal Gauzere Dalys poorly timed challenge on the Argentina No.8. Gauzere took his time, talked through how Senatore landed on his neck and head and then made his call: red card.Based on the recent directive from World Rugby which sees greater protection than ever given around any contact with a players head, Gauzere had no option but to send Daly off. It was the correct call.It meant England had to play 75 minutes - it ended up being 82 with the first-half carrying on for what seemed an eternity - with 14 men and meant their gameplan had to shift as they were barely breaking sweat.England train for these eventualities, also playing 13 men versus 15 so they are ready but even the most prepared team would struggle to envisage playing almost an entire match a man down.Jonathan Joseph had to cover Dalys wing and his own outside centre position while Mike Brown slotted into the defensive line on occasion, leaving England without a sweeper at the back.Argentina should have exploited this with more frequency but Josephs work, along with an astonishing work-rate from Englands back-row, meant they covered Dalys absence.Estelles takes out May in the air, May lands on his front, but the referee and TMO say just a penaltyAgain Gauzere got this call correct. May originally landed on his feet after Estelles outstretched arm caught the airborne May. Gauzere again went to the TMO, talked through the various motions in the tackle and awarded England a penalty.Vunipola takes it on, Robshaw puts the ball out wide towards Wood, but its slapped down by OrlandoGauzere shows Orlando a yellow card and awards England a penalty try. The outstanding Chris Robshaw made this try. Robshaws work-rate was through the roof as he chased every kicked ball and what looked to be the odd lost cause.But his pressure with Tom Wood and Billy Vunipola meant Argentina conceded a turnover close to their tryline. Vunipola forced the turnover, Robshaw got the pass away to the waiting Wood who would have had a walk in for the try but Matias Orlando slapped the ball forward.Gauzere went for the penalty try and yellow carded the Argentinean winger - again he got this call correct.What was so impressive here was Englands work-rate and communication.Robshaw was heroic for England as was the superb Wood while the clarity of their systems meant they knew howw to stretch Argentina, a man up, to create the overlap which would have seen Wood score but for the knock-on from Orlando.ddddddddddddAnother penalty for Argentina and Dan Cole is sin-binnedThe scrum is reset for the seventh time and Facundo Isa scores. The Pumas should have perhaps been awarded a penalty try as England dragged the scrum down time and time again.Cole was eventually yellow-carded after the sixth reset and 13-man England then conceded to Isa who ducked under flailing arms to score.As the clock ticked on to the 48th minute in the first half, one which lasted an hour in total, Englands fitness and focus were stretched and eventually the Pumas punished them.TRY-- 50 seconds into the second-half and Argentina are back to their bestThis was the most delicious of tries. The Pumas went down the left flank, with wonderful passing and eventually Santiago Cordero goes over under the posts. It was a joy to watch and proof that when Argentina get into their stride, they are a terrifying prospect.But having seen them stretch the numerically disadvantaged England, you have to ask why Argentina did not adopt this approach more often. England were there for the taking out wide but this was the only time that the Pumas punished them.At 16-14 it could have been the turning point in the match but instead England re-found their composure and focus.England make no mistake as they take Argentina apart. May runs in to score down the left. Ben Youngs, George Ford, Wood and Joseph all played their part in Mays game-clinching score. The try was testament to the work Eddie Jones has done with Englands attack.His role as attack coach, along with his head coach duties, do not get the same praise but when England had their opportunities, they punished Argentina and Jones deserves praise for his part in turning the team into a side capable of turning opportunities into points.Pieretto sent off for a stamp while Joe Marler is yellow carded for holding. Gauzere had no option here but to red card the Pumas reserve tight-head for the ugliest of stamps. Marler also correctly yellow carded for his part in holding back Pieretto.But by this stage the game had finished as a contest and ensured England stretched their winning run to 13 games, 12 coming under Jones.When England reflect on this match at the end of the year, they will remember a game where this was as much a test of their physical capability as it was mental. Despite having the man down , they stayed together and played brilliantly to see off the Pumas.This may prove to be the defining match of a year which has already seen them win a Grand Slam and a series in Australia.
