TORONTO - The war over words over artificial turf at the Womens World Cup has become bogged down in semantics ahead of Saturdays draw in Ottawa.And that is frustrating the legal team representing a rebel faction of players as it tries to chip away at the monolithic world governing body of soccer.While a legal challenge snakes it way through the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario, lawyers for the players have gone down a number of avenues to keep their storyline front and centre.Jerome Valcke, FIFAs secretary-general, seemingly opened up a new path in an Oct. 29 fifa.com article when he said: We will again welcome open dialogue at the official draw on Dec. 6 in Ottawa.But with no players expected to be present at the draw other than Canadian captain Christine Sinclair, it appears that dialogue looks to be very limited.Most players outside North America are in season with their clubs while the U.S., China and Brazil are in Brazil for a tournament. And Sinclair, like the other Canadian players who answer to the host Canadian Soccer Association, has been deliberately kept out of the fray.Hampton Dellinger, the lead lawyer for the women, jumped on Valckes open dialogue comment and invited the FIFA executive to participate in a conference call around the draft with American Abby Wambach, Germanys Nadine Angerer, Spains Veronica Boquete, and Brazils Marta.Valcke declined the offer, telling Dellinger he was unable to meet during the time requested. But he said team representatives and FIFA officials would meet at the draw.FIFA welcomes continued dialogue with players through the competent bodies within FIFA, including the Committee for Womens Football and the FIFA Womens World Cup, wherein female players interests are duly represented, he said in his response.Valcke will be at the draw and, according to the Oct. 29 article, is willing to talk — thought it seems on his terms.Dialogue with the participating teams and, naturally, the players is very important to us and we keep open channels of communication with all parties before, during and after the event ... I, personally, will attend (the draw) alongside our pitch expert and medical teams, and I am sure that in this way we will be able to address all concerns and doubts so that all of the participating teams can focus on their preparation for the biggest event in women’s football, he was quoted in the Oct. 29 article.A FIFA spokesperson reiterated that via email.The FIFA general-secretary is already in contact with players and members associations and will meet with all the team representatives present during his stay on the occasion of the official draw.Valckes rejection drew an immediate, incendiary response from Dellinger.Mr. Valcke, please stop the spin doctoring and shoot the players (and the press and public) straight: will you or will you not speak DIRECTLY with Nadine Angerer, Abby Wambach, and other protesting players about their concerns and doubts regarding the tournament? wrote Dellinger.Awaiting your response are the 2013 World Player of the Year (Angerer), the 2012 World Player of the Year (Wambach), the 2006-10 World Player of the Year (Marta), Australias Samantha Kerr, Spains Veronica Boquete, and the rest of the now 80-member-plus player coalition.Together, they feel the actions of FIFA and CSA (Canadian Soccer Association) are wrong and unlawful. But they also believe, as do I, that there is time to make all aspects of the upcoming Womens World Cup truly world-class.The womens legal complaint argues that playing their showcase tournament on artificial turf is tantamount to discrimination because the men play their World Cup on grass.In recent weeks, lawyers for the women have also pointed the finger at tournament prize money and the use of goal-line technology as differences between the mens and womens events in a bid to bolster their different gender, different treatment argument.While lawyers for the women have been active on legal offence, FIFA has offered a minimal defence — usually via its website.FIFA argues that playing on turf is within the laws of the game, provided it meets set standards, and that artificial turf makes sense for the Canadian climate. And Valcke has said a mens World Cup on artificial turf could come sooner rather than later.FIFA says there is no decision yet on the use of goal-line technology at the Canadian event. Prize money for the 2015 tournament is expected to be announced some time after the FIFA Executive Committee meeting in mid-December.The 32-team mens tournament in Brazil this summer featured total prize money of US$476 million. The total purse of the 16-country womens tournament in 2011 was $7.6 million.The 2015 Womens World Cup, which features 24 teams, runs June 6 to July 5 in Moncton, Ottawa, Montreal, Winnipeg, Edmonton and Vancouver.Follow @NeilMDavidson on Twitter Dan Hampton Jersey .

LAKE FOREST, Ill. -- Zach Johnson is having a September to remember, and theres still one very big week to go. In one tournament, he made a 25-foot birdie putt on his final hole to earn the last spot on the Presidents Cup team. In the next one, Johnson made a bunch of big putts in the final round of the rain-delayed BMW Championship for a 6-under 65 for a two-shot victory over Nick Watney. Next up? His win Monday at Conway Farms gave Johnson the No. 4 seed going into Tour Championship, giving him a clear shot at the FedEx Cup and its $10 million prize. "Its hard to grasp the last two weeks of golf," Johnson said. "Its not like you have to win every week to win that FedEx Cup. Youve just got to win at the right times, or play well at the right times. And I like the momentum I have for next week." Johnsons 10th career win came at the expense of Jim Furyk, who endured another dose of final-round disappointment. Furyk, who had a one-shot lead, has failed to win the last six times he had at least a share of the lead going into the last round. He holed a 12-foot birdie putt at No. 10 to build a two-shot lead, but played the last eight holes in 2-over and wound up with a 71 to finish alone in third. Furyk had to settle for slice of history Friday as the sixth player in PGA Tour history with a 59. Only three players in that exclusive club went on to win -- Al Geiberger is the only player to win when the 59 was not in the final round. "I dont know if I used them all up on Friday and knocked them all in or what, but I just wasnt able to get the putts to go," Furyk said. Johnson wasnt the only player who felt like a winner Monday. Luke Donald, a member at Conway Farms, was No. 54 in the FedEx Cup and was on the verge of being left out of the top 30 players who advanced to the Tour Championship. He ran off four straight birdies on the back nine, atoned for a bogey on No. 16 with a birdie on the 17th, and then saved par from a bunker on the 18th hole for a 66 to tie for fourth. That moved him up to No. 29 to get him into East Lake. Watney was at No. 34, and he went from playing his way into the top 30 to nearly winning the tournament. Watney closed with a 64 and was tied for the lead until Johnson made an 18-foot birdie putt out of the first cut on the 16th hole, and a 12-footer for birdie on the next hole. "The guys ahead of me were ahead of me for a reason -- theyve been playing well all year," Watney said. "Luckily for me, I kind of pulled everythiing together.dddddddddddd" The FedEx Cup points will be reset, meaning the top five only have to win the Tour Championship to capture the cup. Tiger Woods will be the No. 1 seed, though he doesnt go there with much momentum. Woods started the final round in cool, breezy conditions just four shots behind and was never a factor after missing a short par putt on the opening hole. He closed with a 71 and tied for 11th, seven shots behind. "It was not a very good putting week," Woods said, who was coming off a tie for 65th on the TPC Boston. "Its just one of those weeks where I just didnt have it." Henrik Stenson, a winner in Boston and angry enough in Chicago that he snapped off the head of his driver during the final round, will be the No. 2 seed at East Lake, followed by Masters champion Adam Scott, Johnson and Matt Kuchar. Steve Stricker, who played in the final group with Johnson, was one shot off the lead when he started the back nine bogey-double bogey. He closed with a 72, a round that cost him one of the top five seeds. Furyk had company in his misery. Matt Jones of Australia had a chance to get to the Tour Championship -- which, in effect, would have put him in the four majors next year -- but his 8-foot birdie putt on the last hole hit the lip. That cost him a spot in the top 30. Harris English was at No. 28 and might have caught the worst break of them all. In a driving rain Sunday, he lost the grip on his tee shot and pulled it into grass so thick the ball was never found. The horn to stop play sounded a minute later, and English went back out Monday morning to No. 8 to play his third shot on the par 5. He wound up with a double bogey, never found momentum and fell out of the top 30 by two shots. Lee Westwood also fell out of the Tour Championship with a poor week. Johnson put his post-season in jeopardy by skipping the opening FedEx Cup playoff event to attend his brothers wedding. He was at No. 27 before he arrived for the BMW Championship and started the week just wanting to make sure he was in Atlanta. He did that and more, giving him 10 wins in his 10 years on the PGA Tour. "Im going to have to forget about this week, take Atlanta for Atlanta and just play," Johnson said. "East Lake is not Conway Farms. Its a beast. Im just going to keep doing what Im doing and just be thankful." Johnson finished at 16-under 268 and earned $1.44 million, pushing his career earnings just past $30 million.
