Batesville, In. — The latest report from the analysts at WalletHub would suggest the tri-state area is not all that “green.”Researchers looked at all 50 states and compared them with 27 key metrics to make the rankings. Ohio led the area at #35, Indiana was next 40 and Kentucky was determined to be the 48th least green state in the country.A link to the full study is here.
Press Association There was the odd hairy moment in Sunday’s 1-0 win at Tottenham, but the France international is confident of kicking on next term. “It was a little bit difficult for me,” Mangala said, assessing the campaign. “I need to adapt to the Premier League. “I know the Premier League better now. I think I am used to playing each kind of game and I am very confident for the other seasons and the next season now.” Mangala’s adaptation has no doubt been hampered by City’s own struggles, with their tame title defence ended by Chelsea on Sunday. However, they can at least look forward to Champions League football next term after the win in north London all but secured a top-four finish. That was far from certain a few weeks back and now Manuel Pellegrini’s men are aiming to finish second or third, which would see them progress straight to the group stage. “We are happy because we knew yesterday Manchester (United) lost against West Bromwich,” Mangala said. “It was important for us to win this game and the most important thing is three points, so it was a good game for us. “We have three games and now the objective is that we need to finish second or third to go straight to play the Champions League next season.” Mangala knows City would not have been celebrating an eighth win in nine Premier League matches against Tottenham was it not for Sergio Aguero and a man-of-the-match display from Joe Hart. “For me, I enjoy playing with Joe,” he said. “He showed today he is a good goalkeeper. It is important to have a goalkeeper like that behind us. “I think he is a young player, he has a good career ahead of him and we need to respect what he does. “The first goal started with Joe. He recovered the ball and played it quickly to David and finished with Kun, he scored a very great goal. “It was very important for us today – thank you Joe today and thank you Sergio.” The defeat almost certainly extinguishes Spurs’ hopes of Champions League qualification and left defender Eric Dier ruing what could have been. “It was very frustrating,” the England Under-21s international told Spurs TV. “I think we played well for the majority of the game. “Obviously Man City are a good side and had spells when they were better than us, but I think we played well and obviously missed a few chances which is disappointing. “If you don’t take your chances, that’s what happens, especially against big teams like Man City. You’ve got to take your chances and we haven’t done that.” Eliaquim Mangala believes Manchester City will soon see the best of him after what has been a “difficult” first season. Arriving in a £32million deal from Porto, a lot was expected from the highly-rated 24-year-old central defender. The transition has been far from seamless, though, and Mangala has endured a fair few tough moments in his first Premier League season.

Patrick Reed made $1,980,000 as last year’s champion, and it’s not a surprise that with the purse increasing, so does the prize for first place. The winner’s share first increased to over $1 million when Tiger Woods won the 2001 Masters. For the first nine years of the tournament, the champion took home only $1,500.The Masters champ will get more money than the winner of any major last year. The $2 million prize for winning the U.S. Open was the highest in 2018. MORE: List of payouts from the 2019 MastersHistory of the Green JacketThe green jacket — given to the Masters winner — is an iconic and unique symbol of the tournament. It is awarded to the victor directly after the tournament, with the previous champion on hand for a passing of the torch. The green jacket made its debut in 1949, 15 years after the first tournament, when it was won by Sam Snead. Its origin stems back to 1937, when members of Augusta National Golf Club would wear green jackets during the tournament as a way to identify themselves and be able to answer questions from spectators. When Nicklaus won his second consecutive Masters, he simply put the jacket on himself, and Faldo and Woods received help from the chairman at the time when they repeated. Nobody is allowed to wear the green jacket except Augusta National members and tournament winners. The champion can take it off club grounds but must return it the next year.(Info via Augusta National)
