Tiger Woods winning adds to Ryder Cup buzz

first_imgAllen Durham still determined to help Meralco win 1st PBA title He looked like the Woods of old by leading the final 36 holes of the Tour Championship, not letting anyone near him until it was too late, a vintage performance made all the more remarkable by four back surgeries and a future that looked bleak only a year ago.Woods was a vice captain at the Presidents Cup a year ago this week and said he envisioned a scenario where he never returned to competition. One PGA Tour event into his return, Jim Furyk selected him as a vice captain for the Ryder Cup.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSJapeth Aguilar wins 1st PBA Finals MVP award for GinebraSPORTSGolden State Warriors sign Lee to multiyear contract, bring back ChrissAnd then he picked him for the team. And then Woods won for the first time in more than five years.“It’s obviously a nice buzz for our team,” Furyk said Monday, a few hours after the American charter plane landed in Paris. Don’t miss out on the latest news and information. Japeth Aguilar embraces role, gets rewarded with Finals MVP plum NBC Sports Group said the overnight rating from the Tour Championship was 5.21, the highest-rated telecast in the 12-year history of the FedEx Cup playoffs, which cover 48 events featuring some of the strongest fields of the year.That was the highest rating of the year this side of the majors, and the highest for the Tour Championship dating to 2000.“In the end, whatever it is these 24 guys are going to do this week, the game of golf needs that boost of somebody like him that transcends the game to the masses,” Bjorn said. “So for everyone in golf, it’s brilliant.”Now that Woods is back on his game, the hope for Furyk and the U.S. team is that he’s not back to Ryder Cup form.For all that he has achieved — 80 victories on the PGA Tour, 14 majors, No. 1 in the world for 683 weeks — he has a 13-17-3 record in Ryder Cup matches, and he has played on only one winning team since his first one in 1997.“We don’t fear anyone because we’ve played against them so many times before individually,” Bjorn said. “But we respect our opponents and know what we are up against. What stands on the other side we know is one of the strongest American teams of all time. … We do what we do as a European team, and then we go out and take that on the golf course, and that’s all 12 Americans. It’s not one individual.”Europe has done it well over the years.The Americans have not won the Ryder Cup away from home since 1993, a drought Furyk has been hearing about since he was appointed captain in January 2017. The Americans have confidence from winning big at Hazeltine two years ago — Woods was a vice captain that week — and from a team that boasts nine major champions.That makes them favorites on paper. And that means little, as recent history would suggest. Even with the loss two years ago, Europe still has won eight out of the last 11 times dating to that ’93 American victory at The Belfry.“I’m not sure you really need extra motivation in a Ryder Cup,” Furyk said. “Obviously, I think there’s a thorn in their side, and it’s been that since 1993, and there’s some veteran players that have played on a number of these teams that have never won on foreign soil. It’s not anything I need to mention in the team room. They are well aware of it, and they are well aware of how difficult it is to win in Europe.” USA Captain Jim Furyk, left, and Europe Captain Thomas Bjorn look at each other during a news conference ahead of the Ryder Cup at the Golf National in Guyancourt, outside Paris, France, Monday, Sept. 24, 2018.

(AP Photo/Francois Mori)SAINT-QUENTIN-EN-YVELINES, France — Already the most intense competition in golf, the Ryder Cup doesn’t need help to boost the excitement.Tiger Woods managed to take it to another level.ADVERTISEMENT Furyk, meanwhile, did well not to add to the hyperbole over Woods winning again. Woods was trending in that direction, from the brief time he held the lead on Sunday at the British Open to his runner-up finish at the PGA Championship.How much did Woods contribute to the buzz Sunday night?The Americans had a room set aside in a hotel near the Atlanta airport for a team dinner before flying to France.“We had a whole group of guys waiting in the team room, and then a giant roar when Steve Stricker walked in the room after his victory,” Furyk said with a laugh.Stricker, a vice captain for the U.S. team, won a PGA Tour Champions event in South Dakota.“Nice to have those two guys play so well, and start us off pretty well this week,” Furyk said.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Gretchen Barretto’s daughter Dominique graduates magna cum laude from California college Tim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crown LATEST STORIES View commentscenter_img Gov’t to employ 6,000 displaced by Taal Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew Nadine Lustre’s phone stolen in Brazil Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard PLAY LIST 02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award Will you be the first P16 Billion Powerball jackpot winner from the Philippines?

Six of them were at East Lake for the Tour Championship. The first official day of practice is Tuesday.Monday was as much a time to reflect on Woods as it was to rest up for a busy week at Le Golf National.“I spent 25 years playing professional golf with Tiger Woods on the scene, and any time he does anything great, that’s a story. And that’s where we want to see him,” said Bjorn, the only player to be paired with Woods over 72 holes and beat him. That was in Dubai in 2001.“He does so much for the game of golf,” Bjorn said. “Watching that last night, I thought it was brilliant. It was great for the greater aspect of the game.”The television ratings show as much.ADVERTISEMENTlast_img read more

Willis Knuckles Has Died

first_imgThe death is announced of Mr. Willis D. Knuckles, former Minister of Public Works and former Minister of Presidential Affairs, Republic of Liberia.He died in Accra, Ghana this morning, following a brief illness. He held both positions during the administration of Liberia’s current President, Ellen Johnson Sirleaf.Mr. Knuckles was widely known for his extraordinary organizing skills, which he put to great use during the two presidential campaigns of Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, in 2005 and 2011.  These political initiatives led her to victory on both occasions.A staunch, lifelong Methodist,  Mr. Knuckles also organized fund raising drives for the rebuilding of the Seys United Methodist Church of Careysburg, Montserrado County, first in the the mid-2000s from devastation during the war,  and a few years when the newly renovated church was destroyed by a mysterious fire.Following his graduation from  Cuttington College and Divinity School in the 1967, Willis, though he graduated in Chemistry, began working for the State Department under Secretary of State J. Rudolph Grimes. Secretary Grimes immediately saw promise in Willis’ intellectual and diplomatic skills and sent him to Columbia University, where both Grimes and his Deputy,  Ernest Eastman, had studied, to pursue the Master’s in International Relations. But Willis left Columbia after a semester and returned home.In the early 1970s he became the Chief of Staff to Vice President James E. Green, President W.R. Tolbert’s first Vice President.Mr. Knuckles later became Deputy Minister of Youth and Sports, under Minister Estrada Bernard–a post Knuckles held  until the 1980 coup d’etat, when he and his family sought exile in the United States.Upon his return home in 1982, Willis, an excellent writer in  the English language, became managing editor of the Daily Observer newspaper, as well as Liberia correspondent of the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC).He reported forthrightly on many of the troubles which the Daily Observer and others encountered during the regime of Head of State Samuel K. Doe and the People’s Redemption Council.  When in 1984 the Daily Observer was closed down for the fourth time, Willis flashed a detailed story to the BBC, which was immediately aired.  Willis was immediately arrested and imprisoned at the Post Stockade, the maximum security prison.Following his release months later, Willis, an avid sports enthusiast and energetic individual, took the leadership in reorganizing the Liberia Football Association (LFA).He is a lifelong member and key organizer of the Old Timers Football Club, with whom he played every Sunday until his recent illness.He is survived by his loving wife, Mrs. Hawa Sherman Knuckles, two daughters, Hawa Ellen and  Ethel Virginia, a son, Willis III, grand children, several brothers, including Gabriel Knuckles, a sister, Bushin Knuckles and many other relatives.(For the latest news and updates, follow us on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/pages/Liberian-Observer-Online/42279623238.)Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Legacy linked to unparalleled performance, service

first_img– Police Commissioner says ahead of retirementBy Vahnu ManickchandWith just a few months remaining before his retirement, Police Commissioner Seelall Persaud said the legacy he will leave behind is reflected in the work he had done for over 30 years in the Guyana Police Force.The Top Cop, who is expected to retire sometime in April, made this comment on Wednesday when asked about his legacy.“I’m not into making a legacy, my entire work in the Force was to address to issues to meet the objective of the Force and I never really consider (making a) legacyPolice Commissioner Seelall Persaud talking to media operatives on Wednesdaybut what is there you all know,” he told media operatives in his first public interview since his return from an accumulated six-month leave.Since his appointment to the office of Commissioner of Police, Persaud has spearheaded several projects, including the highly successful Social Crime Prevention Programme – all aimed at boosting public trust in the Police Force.However according to the Top Cop, he is most proud of the establishment of the Fallen Heroes Foundation.“The Fallen Heroes Foundation (is) providing welfare and education assistance to children of Police Officers who were killed in the line of duty,” the Police Commissioner stated.Further asked whether he would be accepting the customary farewell parade upon his retirement, Persaud said, “There are traditional things that happen when senior officers in the Force retire and they’re under consideration.”Persaud returned to work last Monday after being sent on a two-month “special leave” when he turned up for work back in November following a four-month annualised leave.There were uncertainties over his return in light of recommendations made following a Commission of Inquiry into the Guyana Police Force’s handling of allegations of plans to assassinate President David Granger.On March 29, 2017, Andriff Gillard reported to the Police that his friend and neighbour, Nizam Khan, had offered him $7 million to assassinate the President. He said the offer was made during a conversation between Khan and himself after he had approached Khan to borrow $6 million to purchase a property.Following the allegation, President Granger commissioned an inquiry to investigate how the Police had done their investigation of the allegation, and to make recommendations to address flaws and shortcomings of the Force.Retired Assistant Police Commissioner Paul Slowe headed the CoI and, in his recommendations, suggested that disciplinary actions be taken against Police Commissioner Persaud and that he be made to resign and investigated for perjury.The Commission found that a proper investigation was not conducted into the allegation made by Gillard, owing to the interference of Persaud. Slowe reported that the response by the Police was conditioned by the fact that Imran Khan, brother of the accused, has a close relationship with Persaud and other senior ranks of the Police Force.“The Commission recommends that Commissioner Seelall Persaud should be made to resign his position as the Commissioner of Police for the Guyana Police Force, under such terms and conditions that His Excellency considers appropriate. Failing which, proceedings should be initiated in accordance with Article 225 of the Constitution of the Cooperative Republic of Guyana to have him removed from the office for misbehaviour,” the report stated.It was also recommended that Persaud be investigated for perjury since he told the CoI that he first knew about the allegation after 16:00h on March 29, in spite of Assistant Police Commissioner Clifton Hicken testifying that he informed Persaud of the allegation around 10:00h that morning.However, Public Security Minister Khemraj Ramjattan had stated that he was not in agreement with all of the recommendations of the report, which would have to be deliberated at the level of Cabinet.In fact, when asked whether Commissioner Persaud will remain on the job until his retirement or will be asked to resign in keeping with recommendations made, the Minister told this newspaper almost two weeks ago that, “He is going to resume duty tomorrow until he retires.”last_img read more

Cricketer gets five-year rape sentence

first_imgProsecutors said the former Worcestershire all-rounder had been “fired up” by a contest to sleep with the most women, before carrying out the rape at his flat in Worcester, central England, in April 2017.Judge Jim Tindal, jailing Hepburn at Hereford Crown Court, said the “immature” cricketer and a former teammate had agreed a “pathetic sexist game to collect as many sexual encounters as possible”.He added: “You probably thought it was laddish behaviour at the time. In truth it was foul sexism.“It demeaned women and trivialised rape — a word you personally threw around lightly. Only now do you realise how serious rape is.”Hepburn’s lawyer, Michelle Heeley, said her client had expressed remorse.In what the judge said was a “brave” victim impact statement, the woman Hepburn attacked described her ordeal as “evil” and a “heinous crime”.A jury had found Hepburn guilty of oral rape at a retrial earlier this month, but cleared him of a further count of rape relating to the same victim.The four-day trial at Worcester Crown Court heard the woman, who cannot be named for legal reasons, wrongly thought she was having sex with Hepburn’s then county teammate Joe Clarke, a batsman who has played for England’s second-string Lions, after meeting him at a nightclub.She told jurors she had consensual sex with Clarke, who left his bedroom in the early hours to be sick in a bathroom, where he passed out.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000An Australian-born cricketer was convicted following an attack that took place during the first night of a sexual conquest “game” he helped set up on a WhatsApp group © AFP/File / NICOLAS ASFOURILONDON, United Kingdom, Apr 30 – An Australian-born cricketer who raped a woman he found “dozing” in his teammate’s bedroom was jailed for five years by an English court on Tuesday.Alex Hepburn, 23, was convicted following an attack that took place during the first night of a sexual conquest “game” he helped set up on a WhatsApp group.last_img read more

France draw with Switzerland to top group as woodwork denies Payet third goal

first_imgThere was no late goal for the French to celebrate this time, but it didn’t matter.Didier Deschamps’ side had already booked their place in the last 16 before this 0-0 draw and now progress to the knockout stage as Group A winners, while Switzerland escape the group stages for the first time at a European Championship.It didn’t seem like it would end goalless, though, going on the first half displays.From the very beginning in Lille, Paul Pogba seemed intent on crushing the opposition and showing the class many have been hoping to see him produce at these Euros.The 23-year-old had three opportunities to open his Euro 2016 account, but he was denied by goalkeeper Yann Sommer twice and the crossbar on the other occasion.France were in control, Switzerland countered well with the likes of Man United transfer target Breel Embolo, while Granit Xhaka was excellent in the middle.But neither side’s final ball was good enough.Any hope of seeing goals died in the second half and it was Dimitri Payet – on for Kingsley Coman on the hour mark – who came closest to scoring.The West Ham star’s volley from Moussa Sissoko’s cross cannoned off the bar, but as the game neared full-time, both teams appeared happy to settle for a point.However, Switzerland were denied a penalty when Bacary Sagna fouled Haris Seferovic in the dying moments. 1 Dimitri Payet hit the woodwork as France drew 0-0 with Switzerland last_img read more

Feeling Dodger blue

first_img 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Here’s your 2005 Dodgers season in a capsule: They’re not good, not getting any better and there’s no reason to expect that they will. They’re not good at anything. There’s not one thing about them that’s special. Not hitting, not power, not speed, not fielding, not pitching. Nothing that’s distinctive. After another dismal offensive and defensive game Saturday in a 5-1 loss to the Mets, the Dodgers fell to an embarrassing 12 games under .500. Forget the deceiving “pennant race” in the NL West, the Dodgers currently have the 13th best record in the National League. How far have they fallen since last season? Their current 52-64 record would put them 17 games back of the Dodgers from a year ago at this point in the season (69-47). That’s a hard fall. That’s a lot of bad baseball. A lot that has been camouflaged by playing in the worst division in baseball; they entered the weekend six games back of the Padres. This is a pennant race the way your typical Hollywood starlet is big busted. Sorry, it’s fake. It is not real! The Padres keep bumbling about, giving false hope to an organization that should be embarrassed. Smoke and mirrors masquerade a seriously flawed team and allow weak optimism when reality should be setting in. They’re ready for toe tags, not a dramatic comeback. Ready to slink into September, not to knock at history. The Dodgers seem utterly incapable of putting a winning streak together. They just can’t do it. Since winning 11 of 12 at the start of the season, they’ve never won more then three consecutive games, and they’ve managed to do that only three times. Yet a miserable division continues to give them counterfeit hopes, deceive them into believing that if they could only put a nice streak together they’d be right back in the thick of things. “If there’s ever a time to do it, this would be the perfect time,” Dodgers manager Jim Tracy said before Saturday’s 5-1 lost to the New York Mets. “A run of 10 out of 13, or 12 out of 14 or something like that would take you down toward the end of August and it would be pretty interesting to see where the situation would be as you enter the month of September.” Then the Dodgers went out and committed four errors and managed only five hits against Jay Seo, a right-hander making his second start since being called up from the minors Aug. 6. Note to Tracy: The cavalry is not on the way. The Dodgers are actually relatively healthy now. J.D. Drew remains out, but it’s not like he was hitting the cover off the ball before breaking his wrist. Jayson Werth is back, and still hitting a disappointing .234. Jose Valentin, the failed Paul DePodesta experiment at third, is back and hitting .173. Hee-Seop Choi remains a one-week wonder. Things are so bad, Tracy batted Oscar Robles — who started the season in the Mexican League — third on Saturday. That would be the spot normally reserved for your best hitter. They’re so bad that last week DePodesta strangely acquired Jose Cruz Jr., who’s already failed with two other teams this season. A desperate move. The killer is, the biggest difference between this season and last isn’t the hitting, but the pitching. The .257 batting average is close to last season’s .262 mark, but the 4.55 ERA is well over last year’s 4.01 ERA. The rotation is filled with the average and the disappointing. Brad Penny deserves better than his 5-7 record, but doesn’t appear to be a dominating starter, with just 83 strikeouts in 131 innings. The bullpen, riddled with youth, has been less than average. Yhency Brazoban has converted 21 of 25 save opportunities, but is also 2-7 with a 6.46 ERA and has now lost his closer role. The biggest loss of the season, of course, has been Eric Gagne. Without the game’s best closer, dominoes fell in the bullpen and with the team. “That has a lot to so with it,” Tracy said. “Probably everything to do with it.” Throughout all this, the region’s love affair with the Dodgers has gone undiminished. The team continue to lead the league in attendance at over 46,000 per game. But the stadium feels dead. It feels a world away from the place that rocked last season. A stadium that often appears almost half empty. The fans deserve better than a team 12 games under .500. Deserve better than excuses, cursing the fates and blaming injuries. In Los Angeles the Dodgers are not expected to be mediocre, let alone bad, a team headed toward its first losing season of the new millennium. As the Dodgers walked off the field after Saturday’s loss, organist Nancy Bea Hefley’s rendition of “Tomorrow” blasted through the loud speakers. Bet your bottom dollar, it will look a lot like Saturday. A bad team, not getting any better. Steve Dilbeck’s column appears in the Daily News four times a week.

DOHERTY’S ANGER AS HE CLAIMS PERSONAL INSOLVENCY PRACTITIONERS CAN ‘CHARGE HUGE SUMS’

first_imgSinn Féin Finance Spokesperson Pearse Doherty TD has called on Minister for Finance Michael Noonan to respond with urgency to statement by a Personal Insolvency Practioner on RTE’s Drivetime this evening regarding how people will be dealt with by PIPS.Deputy Doherty said: “The government needs to clarify immediately if these Personal Insolvency Practitioners are working on the basis that an insolvent solicitor would need a larger home than an insolvent PAYE worker, because of their “status in society”, as this person said on RTE radio this evening.“People listening to Drivetime tonight and hearing the first interview with a member of the state’s woefully under capacity Personal Insolvency Practioner service must surely have thought they needed their ears checked. “People have been waiting desperately for this service to come into operation since last year and have suffered disappointment after disappointment as its many flaws, such as banks retaining a veto, then the multiple delays in establishing it, came to pass.“Today they were completely underwhelmed when it was revealed that only 37 PIPs are in operation when the government itself says it’s expecting thousands of applications. Whole swathes of the state are unserviced and where is serviced, PIPs can cherry pick clients and charge huge sums.“Now we get an insight into how some of these PIPs think and it will be extremely frightening to people. The Minister needs to respond with absolute urgency to this statement; set out exactly what kind of training the PIPS are getting and whether what this man said is true. He needs to reassure people that this process is going to be fair and equal.”  DOHERTY’S ANGER AS HE CLAIMS PERSONAL INSOLVENCY PRACTITIONERS CAN ‘CHARGE HUGE SUMS’ was last modified: September 9th, 2013 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:DOHERTY’S ANGER AS HE CLAIMS PERSONAL INSOLVENCY PRACTITIONERS CAN ‘CHARGE HUGE SUMS’last_img read more

Nyamityobora welcome under performing Kirinya to Wankulukuku

first_img Tags: kirinya jssNyamityobora FCStarTimes Uganda Premier Leaguetop Kirinya JSS have won only one of their first six games (file photo)StarTimes Uganda Premier LeagueNyamityobora FC vs Kirinya JSS Mutessa II Stadium, WankulukukuTuesday, 06-11-2018 @04:30pmWANKULUKUKU – Kirinya JSS will have a chance to kick-start their league campaign when they take on Nyamityobora at Wankulukuku on Tuesday afternoon.Charles Ayieko’s side have started the season in disappointing fashion, winning only one of their first six games.The Students have also endured to heavy defeats already this season including the 3-0 loss at home to Onduparaka and losing 4-1 away to Bright Stars in their last outing.Despite scoring as many as seven goals in their first six games, Kirinya has let in 12 at the other end, an average of two per game.Their recent poor showing at the back can easily be attributed to the loss of Livingstone Mulondo who left for Vipers in the summer but with Isaac Isinde in their ranks, it is just a matter of time and the issue is sorted.For Nyamityobora, they head into Tuesday’s game on the back of an inspiring 0-0 draw away to URA on Friday in which their goalkeeper, Hillary Jomi saved a late penalty.The point gained at Namboole is part of only four that James Odoch’s side have accumulated this season.With relegation looking more and more of a possibility for them this season, they will need to start winning games as soon as possible.Match Facts:This will be the first ever top-flight meeting between Nyamityobora and Kirinya JSS.Nyamityobora have lost a league-high four games already this season (W1 D0). The single victory came in the 1-0 defeat of Mbarara in the Ankole derby.At home, James Odoch’s side have lost two of their first six games of the season (W1 D0). In those three games, they have scored five goals and conceded six in the process.For Kirinya, they have won only two of their last 13 league games dating back to last season (D6 L5).Away from home, the Students have been performing fairly well lately, winning four of their last 10 league games (D 3L3).Comments last_img read more
