After the successful return of the British Masters, supported by Sky Sports, last year, we sat down with this years tournament host Luke Donald to get his views on the week ahead at The Grove. Kevin Durant Jersey . The historyI remember going to watch the British Masters at Woburn a few times, and it was great to watch the likes of Bernhard Langer, Ian Woosnam and Nick Faldo back in the day, and Seve [Ballesteros] of course. Seve Ballesteros won the British Masters twice at Woburn Obviously, the field was packed with some of the games greatest players, and Im honoured to be hosting a tournament with such a rich history and a world-class list of former champions. It would be great to play my part in returning the British Masters to its former prestige. Theres a big need for more professional tournaments in Britain. They are always so well attended and last years was obviously a huge success. The fieldWith the golf season being so long now, it is more difficult to attract the strongest field possible. But well have an excellent turn-out at The Grove, and well continue to work hard to get the biggest names involved. The Grove is an ideal location and the course is a great test of golf Were a little bit hampered by having the tournament so late in the year, ideally youd want to have it as close to The Open as possible. But its also important to string a run of big tournaments together, so to have the Ryder Cup and the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship in the two weeks before this years British Masters is fantastic.The venueIm confident The Grove will be a first-rate venue and every bit as good as Woburn was last Autumn. The Grove proved a popular course with the players when the WGC-Amex Championship came here 10 years ago. The Grove will host the British Masters supported by Sky Sports next month Its a great test of golf and the players will really enjoy it, as well as the top-class facilities here. The hotel is world class and its the perfect venue for such a big event.The attendance at Woburn was really encouraging, and Im certain well see the same again this year. Access to The Grove is really easy, the location is ideal, not too far from London, and its also an area close to my roots. I was born just down the road in Hemel Hempstead and I also lived in nearby High Wycombe for a number of years. The tournament hostThis is my first time as a tournament ambassador and Im really excited by the challenge. Ian Poulter was the host last season and Ive spoken to him about exactly what the role entails. Theres obviously a lot of promotion to do, but Im also keen to put in a good performance. Luke Donald is excited to be tournament host this year Luckily, the European Tour are very sensitive to a players needs and they will make sure my workload doesnt get too heavy so I can enjoy the week and, hopefully, play some good golf and give myself a chance to win.The innovationsOne of the best things about the return of the British Masters in 2015 was the innovations brought in by Sky Sports. They did a great job in coming up with new ways to make golf as cool and interesting as possible. The live Sky Sports coverage kicks off on Tuesday Weve certainly learned from that and well look to implement a few of those ideas this week, especially the live Masterclasses, and Im sure Sky will come up with even more new ideas to further enhance the coverage, make the tournament look more fun and attract a younger audience.I really enjoyed doing the putting masterclass at Woburn, and I holed one of my best putts of the year on live TV. It must have been around 100 feet and it took a while to get there, and there was a huge noise when the ball dropped in the cup. That was a fun moment. The highlightsThe feedback from the other players was also encouraging throughout the week. The weather was kind to us, the crowds were great, the course was superb and so was the host. Matt Fitzpatrick claimed his maiden European Tour title at Woburn last season We also saw a wonderful winner in Matt Fitzpatrick, who was the youngest player in the field, and hes continued to play well this season. The whole week was a huge success and Im looking forward to more of the same at The Grove.Watch the British Masters throughout the week live on Sky Sports 4 - your home of golf.

PETERSBURG, Fla.SOCHI, Russia -- Another golden opportunity awaits Team Canada. Four years after winning gold on home ice in Vancouver, the Canadians will get a chance to make it two in a row Sunday against Sweden after beating the United States 1-0 in the Olympic semifinals Friday at Bolshoy Ice Dome. This time, though, it was made possible by a few players who werent around in 2010, namely Jamie Benn and Carey Price. Benn scored for Canada on a pretty pass from fellow newcomer Jay Bouwmeester, and Price -- chosen by coach Mike Babcock to start over Vancouver golden goalie Roberto Luongo -- had 31 saves to make it stand up. Though it didnt show up on the scoresheet, Sidney Crosby was flying up and down the ice, creating chances seemingly at will. The captain still doesnt have a goal in this tournament, but along with the rest of his teammates he has raised his level of play just in time to play Sweden for the gold medal on Sunday. The United States will play for the bronze Saturday against Finland, which lost to the Swedes 2-1 in the other semifinal. Guaranteed either a gold or silver, this is the first time Canada has won a medal in an Olympics held outside North America since NHL players began participating in 1998. Canada and the U.S. traded chances throughout the first period. Just 90 seconds in, Crosby forced a turnover that led to a quality opportunity for Patrice Bergeron in front. More than five minutes in, Phil Kessel patiently waited for John Carlson to cross the blue-line and get a one-timer off that Price snagged with his glove. Not long after that, Crosby created a chance for Patrick Sharp and Jonathan Quick made a big save on Bergeron. Quick finished with 36 saves. It took until early in the second period for Canada to get on the board, thanks to a heads-up play from Bouwmeester. The smooth-skating defenceman waited it out with the puck above the left face-off circle, allowing Benn to find open space between Brooks Orpik and Carlson, playing together for the first time at these Olympics because of a hand injury to Paul Martin. A perfect sliding pass across the ice from Bouwmeester hit Benns stick right on the tape and deflected past Quick at the 1:41 mark of the second. At that point, Canada tilted the ice and spent much of the period hemming the Americans in their own end. The result was more brilliance from Quick, who had to slide post-to-post to rob Benn and oozed confidence. Paul George Jersey. The same came from Price on the other end, as he didnt flash his glove hand as much as calmly lift it to catch the puck with ease. Canadas victory came a day after the womens team staged an improbable late comeback to beat the United States for its fourth straight gold medal. Babcock and his players said that victory taught them that "you dont give in." Of course the way Team Canada got to the gold-medal game was very different. It hasnt trailed for even one second at these Olympics. That didnt stop the women from trying to use their experience as motivation. Alternate captain Hayley Wickenheiser, starting goalie Shannon Szabados and forward Brianne Jenner were responsible for a letter posted in the mens locker-room that read: "Tonight is yours. Own the moment. We are proof that every minute matters. The podium is reserved for the brave. Earn every inch, dictate the pace. Go get em! From the girls! :)" The men are one win away from giving Canada double gold in hockey for the third time in the past four Olympics. Friday nights game was skated almost at the blistering pace of the one played Feb. 28, 2010, that Canada won 3-2 on Crosbys unforgettable overtime goal. Some of Canadas best players in the Olympic rematch were watching from home four years ago. In addition to Bouwmeester, Benn and Price, Jeff Carter looked like he was playing in another gear and defenceman Alex Pietrangelo and Marc-Edouard Vlasic quietly controlled the game. NOTES -- Canada scratched defenceman P.K Subban on defence and the injured John Tavares at forward. Tavares, who suffered a tournament- and season-ending left knee injury against Latvia, will remain with the team until after the Olympics. Matt Duchene filled his spot in the lineup. ... Russian star Alex Ovechkin was in attendance, sitting at centre ice on the suite level of Bolshoy Ice Dome. Ovechkin did not take the first charter flight back to North America after his father underwent heart surgery. He tweeted Friday night: "Thanks to all for support. My dad going to be good and he see you all again." ... Even though Russia was eliminated in the quarters, 11,172 fans filled the arena for the all-North American semifinal.
