LOS ANGELES -- Steve Stricker is likely to miss the Match Play Championship next week because his older brother is awaiting a liver transplant at home in Wisconsin. Ryan Carpenter Jersey . Stricker said his 50-year-old brother, Scott Stricker, has been in the hospital since Jan. 6 and was transferred to the intensive care unit three weeks ago. Stricker said his brother has a history of health problems, but took a sudden turn for the worse after the holidays. "Hes walking a tightrope is what theyre telling me," Stricker said Tuesday after his daily visit to the hospital. "He needs a liver. Hes holding his own, but this cant last forever. Hopefully, we get one soon." He said the family thought his brother had a liver donor over the weekend, but the timing didnt work out. Stricker said his brother caddied for him when he qualified for the Canadian Tour in 1989, and soon after had colitis that turned into Crohns disease. Scott Stricker had emergency surgery last Thursday, and Stricker said he has been stable since then. If he were to miss the Match Play Championship that would mean four of the top 12 players in the world ranking are not in the 64-man field at Dove Mountain. Tiger Woods, Adam Scott and Phil Mickelson already have said they would not play. Stricker won the Match Play in 2001 in Australia, and he reached the quarterfinals a year ago. He has not officially withdrawn -- players have until Friday to commit -- but said it was not looking good for him to play. "I was going to leave today to go to Phoenix for a few days, but thats not going to happen," he said. "Its going to be a long shot if I come and play. Im practicing every day, but in the back of my mind, I feel like Im not going to be there -- unless something happens rather quickly, and they say it can. But if one comes available, I wanted to be around for the surgery." Stricker has competed only once since the Presidents Cup last October -- he played the unofficial World Challenge the first week in December -- though he said he played a few rounds in Naples, Fla., after the holidays. Last year he began a limited schedule to be at home more often. Stricker played only 13 times last year and finished No. 3 in the FedEx Cup.

Bond terms typically include not taking any illegal drugs.In light of this statement, and the fact that it was made during the urinalysis testing process, and the term weed is a common slang term for marijuana, the state argues that the defendant has smoked marijuana while on bond, the district attorneys office wrote.Peterson is currently free on a $15,000 bond after he was indicted last month on a felony charge of injury to a child for using a wooden switch to discipline his 4-year-old son earlier this year in suburban Houston. Peterson has said he never intended to harm his son and was only disciplining him in the same way he had been as a child growing up in East Texas. He faces up to two years in prison and a $10,000 fine if convicted.Peterson is on paid leave from the Vikings under a special exemption from the NFFL commissioner until the legal case is resolved. Brandon Bollig Jersey. . Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said he had no comment when asked about it after Thursdays practice.In an email, Phil Grant, the first assistant district attorney for Montgomery County, said no action on the motion will be taken until the resolution of a separate motion seeking the recusal of state District Judge Kelly Case, who is presiding over Petersons case.Prosecutors are accusing Case of bias for calling the lead attorney for each side a media whore and for various legal disagreements Case and the district attorneys office have had in recent years. Grant said a hearing on whether to remove Case has not yet been scheduled.Mary Flood, a spokeswoman for Rusty Hardin, Petersons attorney, wrote in an email that the motion to revoke Petersons bond will come up only when we know which judge will hear the case and then the defence will respond.During Petersons first court appearance, Case had set a tentative trial date of Dec. 1. But he added that might not hold if he is removed from the case.Peterson did not enter a plea during the hearing, but Hardin has said his client intends to plead not guilty.___Follow Juan A.
