Vans Toy Story Sale . But was that really the end? Yes it was! Ive committed to that, and it is the right choice. Theres a part of me thats obviously a little sad as its the end of an era for me. Being a golfer is all Ive ever known really. Nick and his wife Di pause for a snap on the Swilken Bridge during his final Tour event But Ive been lucky over the last couple of years or so to find something else I really enjoy doing, and its been great to be part of the Sky Sports broadcasting team. There have been a few things that contributed to my decision to retire as a player. My game has not been good over the last few seasons, although I threw everything at it in trying to recapture my best form. Unfortunately, it just wasnt getting any better. Dougherty led the US Open at Oakmont in 2007, and played with Tiger Woods in the third round I also found it hard to commit so much, its difficult to retain the hunger and desire to play when youre a bit older and have a young family.

You should never say never, but my immediate future is decided and its one without golf clubs in my hand in terms of playing competitive golf on the European Tour.At least I signed off with a really fun week at the Home of Golf. It was nice to have Di up there with me, and I was very pleased with how I played. I should have made the cut, but it was ironic that my putting - the one part of my game that has been consistently good - let me down. Dougherty is now established in the Sky Sports commentary team, and starred in the Open Zone at Royal Troon My long game has been the big issue for me in recent years, but I actually hit the ball really well all week. But being realistic, with the little amount Ive played this year, I was quite happy with how it went.It was the ideal place for me to bow out, its always been a special place for me and Di as we got married in St Andrews.

It is unclear exactly when Patterson originally sustained the injury, an ulnar collateral sprain to his shooting elbow, but after aggravating it in Fridays win over Sacramento the Raptors medical and coaching staff have decided to shut him down for the time being. "Its never a good time to lose a guy like him because he has been so important to us, offensively and defensively," Dwane Casey said, just over an hour before tip-off at The Target Center.

"Patricks been a big part of that, that depth at that position," he continued. "For the second unit, the energy he brings to the table, his shooting, his defence, his rebounding, just his overall intensity it really adds a lot to that second unit, which is huge. But again, we still have some other quality guys. Tyler Hansbroughs played a lot of playoff games, Steve Novak is one of our best shooters. So we have different guys that can step in and give us something different. So now is an opportunity." ' ' '
