Essex 601 for 5 dec (Westley 254, ten Doeschate 109*, Bopara 99, Cook 66) beat Worcestershire 230 (Cox 63, Rhodes 59, Masters 7-52) and 210 (Napier 5-59) by an innings and 161 runsScorecard Id be lying if I said I werent checking the scores, admitted Essexs head coach Chris Silverwood.Every interval - virtually every moment of peace - at Chelmsford over the last three days had been broken by an update of scores from around the country, both in the stands and the players balcony.News of Kents emphatic victory over Sussex, taking them level on points with Essex at the top of Division Two, filtered through as the players were walking off the field for tea. Just over an hour later, Essex had completed their demolition job of Worcestershire. This victory by an innings and 161 runs will have registered down the road in Kent, too.A three-day finish was on the cards when Worcestershire were reduced to 64 for 5 by lunch, in their first innings on day one. That Essex were able to fulfil expectations was ultimately down to Graham Napier, who picked up his fourth five-wicket haul of the season, after Ryan ten Doeschate had brought up his third century of the season before declaring 371 runs ahead.It was not the cleanest mornings work from Essex. They lost Tom Westley run out for 254: his innings ended at 506 minutes after ten Doeschate dropped the ball into the off side and ran instantly. Westley gave up the run about halfway down, as Brett DOliveira swooped from point to throw down the stumps.Still, the Essex skipper remained calm and brought up his century from 114 balls. His innings also took his seasons tally past 1,000 first-class runs for the first time in his career.Essex should have struck in the first over of Worcestershires second innings. Jamie Porter got his fourth delivery to lift off a length and take Daryl Mitchells edge, only for Nick Browne to put down a simple catch at third slip. Browne would make amends later with a stunning one-handed catch at point, off the bowling of Will Rhodes, to remove Tom Fell.Mitchells reprieve allowed him and DOliveira to survive until the last over before lunch. It was then that David Masters, in his first over from the Hayes Close end, where he nabbed all seven of his first innings wickets, sent Mitchell on his way with a delivery that kept low as it moved in, knocking into middle and off stump.With the fourth ball after lunch, DOliveira was accounted for - becoming the first of Napiers three afternoon-session wickets when he edged through to James Foster. The second came when Joe Clarke played on, looking to continue on an enterprising innings that was cut short at 22.At this point, George Rhodes, the only bright spot for Worcestershire at Chelmsford, seemed to be on his way to a second half-century in the match.It was at this point that ten Doeschate decided to throw the ball to Westley. Despite the change in regulation, spin has played little part at Chelmsford. In fact, Westleys first over, the 39th of the second innings, was the first sight of spin from the hosts. It took just four balls to come good, as Ross Whiteley was trapped in front from around the wicket. In Westleys next over, he drew Rhodes out of his crease to give James Foster his first Championship stumping of the season. The wicket of Leach, bowled by a full Napier delivery that moved late into the right-hander, took the teams to tea.There was a carnival feel to the evening session, as the floodlights were superseded by the sun, which found a gap in the clouds as Essex pushed for a day off. Ed Barnard, caught by Westley at second slip off Napier and then Ben Cox, flicking Masters tamely to Jamie Porter at mid on, gave Napier four in the innings and Masters nine in the match (he had never taken 10). And so the game within a game began - who would get the final wicket? In the end, it went Napiers way, as Jack Shantry, having stroked a couple of boundaries, offered a high leading edge that ten Doeschate caught brilliantly, sprinting in from mid off.Essex now have a round off, while Kent host a revitalised Northamptonshire at Beckenham. In the meantime, the Essex players will be given some time off before they return to Chelmsford on September 12 to play Glamorgan, before a potential winner-takes-all clash with Kent at Canterbury in the final round of the season.Essex will play their remaining two matches without Alastair Cook, hence the acquisition of Adam Wheater on loan. With Hampshire happy for the wicketkeeper batsman to court opportunities elsewhere ahead of next season, Essex are thought to be interested in bringing him back to the club he left in 2013 on a more permanent basis. Silverwood, though, was keen not to comment on the matter just yet.

CHASKA, Minn. -- Its not the noise thats so jarring on the first tee of the Ryder Cup. No, you expect that. Even without the familiar U-shaped bleachers surrounding the perimeter, you know its going to be loud.On this brisk Minnesota morning, it started predictably early. The American fans were just behind the tee, leading chants in their red, white and blue hockey jerseys and Viking-horn hats.The European fans, down the left side, were singing songs and dancing, head-to-toe in blue and gold outfits, topped by tam-o-shanter caps and completed with matching socks pulled to the knees.More frenzied than a football game, more anticipatory than a rock concert, more rollicking than a roller coaster, the atmosphere on the first tee resembles no other.The underlying tone for each faction of fans is something to the effect of: We want to beat you, but, really, were just here to have a good time; but no, seriously, well only have a good time if we beat you.And so they sing and chant, and chant and sing. Back and forth, like a tennis rally of vigorous hopefulness bouncing from one end of the tee to the next.On Friday, they even cheered together. With the Ryder Cup golf bag of the late Arnold Palmer standing alone on the ground below, the supporters from both sides saluted their fallen hero in unison: AR-NOLD PAL-MER! AR-NOLD PAL-MER! It was enough to give your goosebumps the chills.But that wasnt the most jolting part of the festivities. None of the noise was. No, it was the silence.For the 10 seconds before each of the eight tee shots in the opening foursomes session, the noise didnt lessen. It didnt die down or dwindle. It stopped.Dead silence. From raucous bellowing to not a single trickle of sound floating through the air, as if it was all swallowed up by a vacuum. It was like stepping out of a keg party and into a church.Thats why Justin Rose, who hit the very first tee shot of the morning, said beforeehand: Its a moment to try and enjoy the best you can.dddddddddddd Its clearly nerve-wracking and its not a moment you can really prepare for. Just expect to be nervous, get it airborne and forward.Ryder Cup year after Ryder Cup year, player after player, this opening tee shot is considered the most harrowing, stressful shot in tournament golf.The dichotomy between the boisterous celebration before each drive and the deafening silence during them, combined with the enormity of the moment, is enough to make the surest ball-striker start shaking. At some point, though, they have to swing.And as soon as the clubface makes contact, as soon as the ball starts its ascension into the sky, the party starts up again.The American fans, borrowing an anthem from their soccer brethren, chanted Friday: I believe; I believe that we; I believe that we will win.To which one of the blue-and-gold-clad European fans invariably responded as a solo: I believe that WE will win.Then there are the songs -- and lets make one thing very apparent: When it comes to lyrics, the Europeans have already closed out the match.They sang individual songs for every single player. Kaymer Chameleon (parodying Culture Clubs Karma Chameleon) for Martin Kaymer. To the tune of Thats Amore, they sang, Thats Garcia. And Hey Lee for Lee Westwood, mimicking The Beatles Hey Jude.Even Darius Rucker, who was hanging out inside the ropes at the tee, smiled and acknowledged the phrasing, if not the melody.From keg party to church and back again. Eight times Friday morning, as the foursomes matches made their way to their first tee, each player battling some level of nerves.It was wild. It was raucous. It was eerily silent, then wild and raucous again. As we witnessed once again, there isnt another scene like it in golf.
