TORONTO -- Toronto FC officially parted ways with English midfielder Hogan Ephraim on Tuesday while opening its doors -- if only as a temporary courtesy -- to another Queens Park Rangers player. Forward David (Junior) Hoilett, a native of Brampton, Ont., and his younger brother Jaineil, who plays in Gemany, are training temporarily with the MLS team before returning to their respective clubs training camp in Europe. "No story there," Toronto assistant coach Fran OLeary said with a smile. "Just friends of Ryans coming in to get sharp before pre-season. No story unfortunately." Ryan Nelsen played at QPR before taking over as Toronto FC manager earlier this year. It could be the closest fans here see of Hoilett in a Canadian team uniform. While Jaineil has represented Canada at the under-20 level, Junior has yet to decide his international allegiance. Hes also eligible for Jamaica and has reportedly said he would consider England if he met the requirements. Asked Tuesday about where his international future lies, the pocket-sized speedster smiled and said: "My lips are sealed right now." A polite Hoilett had little to say to reporters but spoke admiringly about Torontos practice facility ("Better than our facility back at QPR"), training and players, and said he was committed to helping QPR fight its way back to Englands top tier following relegation. "It was a difficult season, of course," he said. "We underperformed and its been a tough season. But were going to try to fight hard and get back in the Premier League where we belong." Hoilett, who turns 23 on Wednesday, plans to train with Toronto for a few weeks to prepare for QPRs pre-season, which opens in early July. The 21-year-old Jaineil plays for a lower-tier German side. Nelsen himself missed Tuesdays sunny practice. Hes in Europe, combining a scouting trip with helping move has family to Toronto. Chief scout Pat Onstad and president Kevin Payne are on the road in Argentina while OLeary is headed to Spain next. "Were trying to add some real quality in this next (transfer) window," said OLeary. "But we want to make sure we get the right ones." The club announcement on Ephraim came several hours after the player landed in London. He had tweeted on the weekend that QPR wanted to end his loan spell so he would be "refreshed" for pre-season. "Toronto it has been a pleasure - unbelievable people and treated me so well .muchlove," he tweeted. Ephraim had limited success in Toronto this season as a winger and attacking midfielder, showing some nice touches without being able to put his stamp on games. He saw action in 11 matches, starting nine. Toronto (1-7-5), winless in 11 league games, has the weekend off before visiting D.C. United (1-10-2) on June 15. OLeary, like other members of the coaching staff, was nothing but positive Tuesday despite the recent run. Torontos most recent result was a disappointing 1-1 tie with the visiting Philadelphia Union, thanks to a goal conceded in second-half stoppage time. "What do you do when youre in a difficult spell?" OLeary asked. "You just keep your head down, you keep working. "I think (from) the response of the fans, thats what they saw. They saw a team that was vibrant, was fighting for them, was fighting for Toronto FC. And I think well keep doing that and results will turn here. "Well add a little more quality. ... This thing will turn. Were a competitive team now. Well start turning these performances into points sooner than later." Striker Danny Koevermans and midfielder Terry Dunfield are both expected to play for the Toronto reserve side on Friday night in Pittsburgh against the Riverhounds, a USL Pro team. Koevermans, who was sidelined by knee surgery, got his first taste of first-team action in more than 10 months Saturday when the Dutch star came on as a substitute in the 86th minute against Philadelphia. Dunfield, meanwhile, is back after suffering a hyperextended knee. Notes: OLeary said it was too early to say how much action Koevermans would see at D.C. United. ... Captain-defender Darren ODea (Ireland) and midfielder Reggie Lambe (Bermuda) are away on international duty. Goalie Stefan Frei (hamstring) and defenders Logan Emory (foot) and Richard Eckersley (hamstring) also missed practice Tuesday. Cheap Jerseys From China . Aaron Harrison scored a 22 points for Kentucky (6-1), which has won four in a row following a Nov. 12 loss to current No. 1 Michigan State.

Cheap NFL Jerseys China . -- Brandon Jennings made the most of his first game with the Detroit Pistons on Sunday night. This time last year, two golfers -- Lydia Ko and Inbee Park -- commanded most of the attention going into the CME Group Tour Championship with LPGA season honors on the line.For the last event of 2016, which starts Thursday at Tiburon Golf Club in Naples, Florida, Ko, No. 1 in the Rolex Rankings, again is a main part of the plot. But Park, bothered much of the season by a thumb injury, isnt in this weeks field. The gold medalist in womens golf at the Summer Olympics and a seven-time major champion, Park is taking an extended break in hopes of getting healthy again.Ko has another very formidable foil at this years CME Group Tour Championship in the form of Ariya Jutanugarn. The 20-year-old from Thailand burst into prominence in the spring with three straight victories -- she was the first LPGA winner from that increasingly golf-loving country -- and has added two more since, including a major title at the Ricoh Womens British Open.Jutanugarn arrives on Floridas southwest coast with one more victory in 2016 than Ko, whose four wins are topped by a a major triumph at the ANA Inspiration. The 19-year-old from New Zealand took advantage of a late-Sunday swoon by Jutanugarn, who had a two-stroke lead before a crushing bogey-bogey-bogey finish that opened an avenue for Ko to win her second straight major.That was seven long months ago, and the uncertainty with which Jutanugarn played those closing holes at Mission Hills Country Club has been replaced with a relaxed confidence.As the LPGA concludes its global schedule in the United States after six tournaments in Asia and last weeks Lorena Ochoa Invitational in Mexico, Jutanugarn, not Ko, has the mojo of the moment.Although Jutanugarn hasnt won since the Canadian Pacific Womens Open in late August, she has played well of late, racking up five top-10s in seven events since her fifth victory. Ko, on the other hand, hasnt won since July and has experienced an indifferent fall with only one top-10 in her last six starts, with three finishes outside the top 40. Her game has been uneven, and she fired caddie Jason Hamilton, with whom she had a lot of success the last couple of years. Ko is still No. 1 in the world, but Jutanugarn is an ascendant No. 2 after a major attitude adjustment.This year, I have so much fun, more than last year, Jutanugarn said during the Sime Darby LPGA Malaysia in late October. This year, my only focus is I really want to be happy on the course. Thats the change for me from last year.Its hard to fathom that a year ago Jutanugarn missed the cut in 10 consecutive events.dddddddddddd. But she began to play better late in the 2015 season and in 2016, following her collapse at the ANA Inspiration, began working with performance coaches Lynn Marriott and Pia Nilsson of Vision54. With an improved mindset, Jutanugarn was poised to capitalize on her talent, evident since she won the 2011 U.S. Girls Junior at age 15.Powerful (she is ranked 18th in 2016 in driving distance despite rarely ever using a driver) with good touch (she is No. 3 in putts per green in regulation), Jutanugarn has the lead over Ko in a couple of season races. Jutanugarn tops the money list with $2,475,218, less than $20,000 ahead of the South Korea-born New Zealander. She has a 14-point advantage over Ko for Rolex Player of the Year and leads the Race to the CME Globe with Ko in the second position. Ko (69.611) has a narrow lead over Jutanugarn (69.632) in scoring average.The path to victory this week for either Jutanugarn or Ko could be blocked by Shanshan Feng of China, who won back-to-back events (Sime Darby LPGA Malaysia and Toto Japan Classic) within the last month. The bronze medalist at Rio, behind Park and Ko, Feng has climbed to No. 4 in the world, trailing Ko, Jutanugarn and South Korean In Gee Chun, the winner of the seasons final major, The Evian Championship.One honor that isnt in the balance at Tiburon: Louise Suggs Rolex Rookie of the Year. Chun, who wasnt an LPGA member in 2015 when she won the U.S. Womens Open, already has captured that award easily over Mexicos Gaby Lopez, American Megan Khang and Su Oh of Australia.Besides Park, notably absent from the season-ender, for which 72 players qualify, is Michelle Wie. The 2014 U.S. Womens Open champion, Wie finished 115th in the Race to the CME Globe and has tumbled to 160th in the Rolex Rankings after missing 12 cuts in her first 20 events of 2016. She played better in Asia -- picking up a top-10 at the Blue Bay LPGA -- but the upswing couldnt make up for her poor play earlier in the year.At the end of a disappointing season, Wie, 27, can look at Jutanugarn as an example of how things can turn around drastically. When youve been mired in a slump and hobbled with injuries, you look for any available inspiration. The womens game is now in the hands of young stars who will have the stage, trying to end a season in style.
