Westwood too good for Spieth

first_img McIlroy holed from 25 feet for birdie on the 17th to keep the match alive and also birdied the 18th as FedEx Cup winner Horschel failed to get up and down from the side of the green. Both players then missed from 12 feet for birdie on the first extra hole before McIlroy saved par from a greenside bunker on the next and Horschel was again unable to get up and down from off the green. In reference to his putt on 17th, he told reporters: “I drew on the Ryder Cup at Gleneagles to a putt I hit with Sergio. Both were ‘Make it or go home.'” Westwood, who will face stablemate Danny Willett in the last 16 after Willett beat fellow Englishman Andy Sullivan, told Sky Sports 4: “It feels great obviously. There are no easy matches out here and I knew Jordan was going to be tough to beat. “(I was) sliding down the bannister at the start, two down after two, and just had to regroup and fight back after that. “Anything can happen (now). Getting out of the group was really one of the toughest things to do this week. Sometimes your fate was out of your hands but fortunately I won all three games and I am very excited about tomorrow morning. “I will try to come out and play as good as I played today and keep holing putts.” South Africa’s Louis Oosthuizen defeated Bubba Watson on the 19th to set up a clash with Rickie Fowler, but that was overshadowed by a remarkable row during the dead rubber between Keegan Bradley and Miguel Angel Jimenez in the same group. Lee Westwood claimed the notable scalp of Masters champion Jordan Spieth as Rory McIlroy had to produce some late heroics to reach the last 16 of the WGC-Cadillac Championship in San Francisco. Jimenez appeared to disagree with where Bradley had taken a drop on the 18th and, while trying to put his point across, told Bradley’s caddie Steve Hale to shut up. Hale took exception to this and Bradley – who had already asked Jimenez to “do me a favour” and walk over to his own ball – then stepped right in front of the Spaniard to say “Don’t tell my caddie to shut up.” The issue was finally resolved and Jimenez won the match, but although he and Bradley shook hands, the debate was still raging and Hale refused to shake hands with Jimenez on the 18th green. Justin Rose had earlier bowed out despite beating Ryan Palmer to claim his second consecutive victory, first-day conqueror Marc Leishman rendering the former US Open champion’s result meaningless by beating India’s Anirban Lahiri on the 18th to advance with a perfect 3-0 record. Leishman will face Gary Woodland next after Woodland defeated Webb Simpson on the 18th. Former champion Hunter Mahan also advanced to the knockout stages with his third win, the American defeating compatriot Matt Kuchar 5&4 in group 14. Mahan will face Australian John Senden on Saturday morning, Senden and Fowler having already booked their places in the last 16 with a game to spare thanks to victories on the opening two days against the two players who could possibly match their overall record. Head-to-head results would decide the group winner in the event of two players finishing tied, with the only play-off seeing Branden Grace defeat Zach Johnson and Charley Hoffman with a birdie at the third extra hole to set up a last-16 clash with England’s Tommy Fleetwood. Fleetwood defeated Bernd Wiesberger on the 19th and advanced courtesy of his better head-to-head record with Jamie Donaldson, who had beaten Sergio Garcia. Elsewhere, Paul Casey had recovered from four down with nine to play to beat Francesco Molinari and set up a meeting with former Masters champion Charl Schwartzel, with Jim Furyk winning group five after beating Martin Kaymer on the 20th hole. Furyk will take on JB Holmes on Saturday after Holmes defeated Brooks Koepka and Russell Henley defeated Scotland’s Marc Warren, who would have gone through with a game to spare if he had not squandered a three-hole lead with three to play against Koepka on Thursday. Spieth, Westwood, McIlroy and Billy Horschel had all won their first two group matches at Harding Park, meaning Friday’s contests would decide which players advanced to the knockout stages. And after Westwood recovered from losing the first two holes to beat Spieth on the 18th, McIlroy came from two down after 16 to beat Horschel on the 20th hole. Press Associationlast_img read more

Last run: Brothers Derek, Dylan Maltz savor final season together at Syracuse

first_img Published on April 15, 2014 at 1:30 am Contact Jesse: | @dougherty_jesse Derek Maltz’s high school career was ending. Dylan Maltz’s was just beginning. The only thing either of them could do was stand at midfield and cry.Derek, a Stone Bridge (Va.) High School senior at the time, was Syracuse bound. Dylan, a freshman, didn’t know the first thing about college recruiting, but had proven to be more than just “Derek’s younger brother” in a short time.But their lone year together was slipping away in the regional quarterfinals of the 2010 Virginia state playoffs, with Wilbert Tucker Woodson High School leading by five goals and the final minutes ticking off the clock. So the brothers stood side by side as the season came to an unceremonious end. “It’s not going to be the last time we play together,” Dylan said to Derek, if not to predict the future, then to lighten the sting of the loss. “I know it’s not.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textIt only could have meant one thing, and four years later the Maltz brothers are reunited as teammates at Syracuse. Once again, Derek is a senior and Dylan a freshman, and just a handful of games separate them from another parting. And while they’re doing the most to savor that time and help the Orange back to the national championship game, they’re also closing a chapter of family history.Their father, Derek Maltz Sr., was a walk-on in the early 1980s, on the team that won the program’s first national championship in 1983 and kick-started 22 straight years of final four appearances. He didn’t push his sons to play at Syracuse, but their devotion to the program and each other are a product of his guidance. Derek has bounced in and out of SU’s starting lineup this season, and has scored 10 goals while collecting seven assists. Dylan’s minutes have been scarce, but he’s shown flashes of playmaking ability when given the chance. “Coming here and playing with Derek has been awesome,” Dylan said. “We knew it was coming, but I couldn’t ask for much more from this season with him.”Growing up, Dylan and Derek took every opportunity to be around each other. They often played sports with their friends and were always a package deal. Derek a center and Dylan his point guard. Derek a quarterback and Dylan his receiver. And above all, a duo around the lacrosse net. Dylan was just 3 years old when they first started playing “mini lax” in their basement, and Derek — whose size has allowed him to dominate around the crease throughout his Syracuse career — could always use his size against his younger brother. As they grew older they took the game outside and started regularly watching SU lacrosse with their dad. They learned the names of the players, wore blue and orange gear and absorbed the rich tradition. “They fell in love with the game when they were little,” Derek Sr. said. “I did my best to show them good lacrosse, and that just happened to be Syracuse lacrosse at the time.”But when Dylan got to Stone Bridge and the two were finally on the same high school team, Stone Bridge head coach Scott Mitchell put them on different practice lines to see what they could on their own. “Hey Coach, can I play with Derek?” Dylan asked as his line left the field and Derek’s went on. “Can I try being on a line with my brother?” Derek asked when he came off. But when games came, Mitchell paired the two like he always knew he would.“Guys like that, you can’t split them up,” Mitchell said. “They had a great chemistry and were phenomenal together.”At season’s end, Derek’s decision to attend Syracuse was an easy one. He wasn’t heavily sought after and getting an opportunity at Syracuse was always his dream. But in the three years after Derek left Stone Bridge, Dylan became one of the top players in an area not traditionally known for its lacrosse. He surfaced as the sixth-ranked attack and No. 18 player in the Class of 2013, according to Inside Lacrosse, and drew interest from a variety of programs.Then in the summer of 2011, Dylan and Derek sat on their back porch while Dylan called SU head coach John Desko. It had been a little more than a year since he promised his older brother they’d run on the same field again, and he stuck to that.“He made the decision on his own, and Derek had a lot to do with it,” Derek Sr. said. “He wanted another chance to play with his brother.”Now, after just one more season where Derek is doing his best to help a deep attack unit and Dylan is scratching at the surface as a freshman, they’ll soon part again. But Dylan will carry on the family tradition after Derek graduates, and the youngest Maltz — 13-year-old Danny — is a budding lacrosse star. “He could be the best of all three of us,” Derek said. And when he was asked if Danny could end up at Syracuse, Derek smiled and said, “With our track record, why not?”In the short term, Syracuse is chasing a national championship and the Maltz brothers are doing anything they can to win a ring, just like their dad. Derek’s collegiate career will soon end. Dylan’s is just beginning. But gratuity has replaced their tears. Derek said: “We’re just happy we’ve been able to play another year together. It’s been a blast. We’re always going to be able to look back on it and that’s what’s important.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

Dodgers on wrong end of shutout in Cincinnati

first_img Dodgers’ Max Muncy trying to work his way out of slow start Things went further awry in the third after leadoff singles by Tucker Barnhart and Nick Senzel. Joey Votto bounced a ground ball to Corey Seager at shortstop but Seager’s throw to second baseman Chris Taylor was wide of the base and sailed into right field.“I know with Votto we have the infield obviously shifted over so it took some time for CT to get over there,” Roberts said. “Softly-hit ball, trying to throw to a guy who’s in motion, trying to get the forceout there. I really couldn’t tell how much of a misfire it was, if it was, or if CT just couldn’t get to the bag.“It was just one of those things that we just didn’t execute.”Buehler was almost out of the jam with no more damage when he got Eugenio Suarez to pop out and struck out Winker. But Yasiel Puig (who struck out in all three at-bats Friday) dropped a full-count single into center field to drive in two runs.Center fielder Alex Verdugo started to charge the softly-hit single but pulled up to play it one the hop instead, throwing too late to get Votto at home.“It looked like it was off the end of the bat, weakly hit,” Verdugo said. “Off the bat, I took a couple hard steps in, running in hard. I felt I had a better play getting it on the bounce and throwing the second runner out. Now seeing what I see, obviously both runners scored, I think I probably would have just gone there and gone for the dive.“Just one of those things, fastball down, end of the bat, big swing but off the end of the bat. I felt like I had the right read, the right jump. … Even if I did dive I think it would have been bang-bang. It would have been one of those with a very low catch percentage on the play.”All three runs in the inning were unearned and Buehler allowed no more over the next three innings, retiring 10 of the 11 batters he faced after Puig’s two-run single.But the Dodgers’ offense never came to life against Mahle or three Reds relievers, spreading out their six hits and not getting a runner past first base after the third inning. CINCINNATI — It defies proper spelling but Cincinnati’s Great American Ball Park leaves the space between ‘Ball’ and ‘Park.’ But it does provide another way for baseballs to leave the yard.Even in this age of home runs, the Reds’ home field annually ranks among baseball’s most accommodating venues. It turned stingy Saturday afternoon, however, as the Dodgers were shut out by right-hander Tyler Mahle and the Reds bullpen in a 4-0 loss.After hitting four home runs Friday night, the Dodgers managed just six hits Saturday, all singles.“Mahle just had our number really. We just couldn’t get anything going,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Dodgers hit seven home runs, sweep Colorado Rockies “I thought early the fastball — he was running it in on our guys and beating us in. Then I thought we started getting the handle on him. He wasn’t striking his breaking ball. I thought we took some good swings. I thought (Matt) Beaty had some good at-bats today.“Outside of that he just found a way. Not a bunch of punch (five strikeouts in six innings). We just didn’t get a whole lot of good swings off against him.”It was only the 12th time in their first 47 games that the Dodgers didn’t get off any home run swings — but they lost eight of those 12 games (while going 26-9 when they hit at least one home run). It is an unsurprising split in baseball’s powerball era.“The homer — that’s in our mix offensively. It is,” Roberts said. “I do think that getting on base by way of walk and situationally I think we’ve been pretty good this year. But, yeah, you look around the league teams that don’t homer don’t win a lot of games. So I think that definitely applies to us certainly.”The Dodgers have hit 74 home runs this season, second in the National League behind the Milwaukee Brewers. But their pace has slowed considerably from the unsustainable early barrage of 24 in their first 10 games (a franchise record).center_img Cody Bellinger homer gives Dodgers their first walkoff win of season “It’s hard to go into a game where you say you’re trying to homer,” Roberts said of the losing record without homers. “You understand it, that we’re better when we do homer. We win more games. But our approach, our plan is still our plan and that’s to put the barrel to it, swing at strikes. When we do that, yeah, we do homer. But to go into it trying to homer, I definitely advise against that.”Coming into Saturday’s game, it had been Dodgers pitchers putting up the zeroes. But a 24-inning scoreless streak ended when Jesse Winker hit a solo home run on the ninth pitch of his at-bat against Dodgers starter Walker Buehler in the second inning.“The Winker homer, I take my chances on that pitch really to anybody,” Buehler said of the 2-and-2 fastball. “It was at the top of the zone, kind of my strength.”Related Articles How Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling topped the baseball podcast empire Fire danger is on Dave Roberts’ mind as Dodgers head to San Francisco last_img read more

Guessing game on LeBron James at its peak

first_imgLeBron James becomes a free agent soon. So where is he headed next?Will he surprise everyone by staying on the range in Cleveland with the Cavaliers? Or will he leave home for the bright lights of Houston or Hollywood?ADVERTISEMENT Viray zooms ahead by three at Malarayat Anyway, speculators about King James’ prospects include two of the biggest American daily newspapers—USA Today and the Los Angeles Times.USA Today said chances are grim for LeBron to stay in his home state.But with former NBA Finals MVP Kawhi Leonard wanting out of San Antonio and wishing to play for his hometown team—the Los Angeles Lakers—conversations about LeBron coming to LA now have “an entirely different decibel level.”If the Lakers trade for and land Leonard, who grew up in Moreno Valley outside LA and attended San Diego State, another superstar of his caliber would be reason enough for LeBron to relocate “to the place where his business empire is already headquartered and where he could be seen as the savior of a fallen franchise,” USA Today said.LeBron’s many business interests include television production companies in Hollywood, not to mention two mansions in the $20 million plus range each in the fancy LA neighborhood of Brentwood.ADVERTISEMENT Taal victims get help from Kalayaan town Jury of 7 men, 5 women selected for Harvey Weinstein rape trial Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew LATEST STORIES 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 Your guess is as good as mine.

Social cohesion is like a kith and kin affair

first_imgDear Editor,I read your editorial of December 6, 2019, titled “Purpose of Social Cohesion Dept” with interest and felt compelled to share an observation hereto: Any Guyanese with a clear understanding of social cohesion should look no further nor anticipate any fulfilment of national unity under the APNU/AFC regime, as it was well-exhibited from the onset at Mr David A Granger’s presidential inauguration at Providence National Stadium in 2015. A country of six peoples; the entire ceremony was dominated by one ethnic group (like a kit and kin affair). Undoubtedly, anyone can draw his or her conclusion on the APNU/AFC position on social cohesion as it is clear as crystal for all to see.Sincerely,Paul Ramrattanlast_img read more

UL Places 10,000 Students on Probation

first_imgTo streamline its academic activities in order to produce higher calibre graduates, authorities at the University of Liberia (UL) have with immediate effect, notified more than 10,000 undergraduate students that they have been placed on probation due to their “poor academic performance,” a UL Relations official has confirmed. The probation list was released a few weeks after the UL announced the names of its “good academic standing list,” which showed that more than 1, 400 students acquired cumulative Grade Point Averages (GPA) of at least 3.0 and above, while 16 students had perfect GPAs of 4.0.            In a statement issued yesterday, UL authorities said the probation notice serves as a strong warning for students to perform better during the current semester. “When grades are tabulated for the current semester, those on double probation will be suspended from school for one semester, while those in the category of three successive failures (semester GPA below 2.0) would lead to academic expulsion in keeping with the UL Student Handbook,” the UL statement stipulates.The lists were compiled by the office of Enrollment Management.  The first list showed that 5,349 students are on single probation after failing to maintain a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0 or scored grade “C” for the 2nd semester of academic year 2012/2013. Names of students on probation are being concealed.  Instead, the public will identify them by their identification numbers or their major courses of study that are already posted on the UL bulletin board.    According to the UL Student Handbook Chapter IX, “A student is placed on Probation…, if his/her GPA for any semester falls below 2.0 or scores “C” at the end of the semester.” Therefore, for students on double probation, the Handbook says, “…he/she may remain at the university if the cumulative average is not less than 2.0 at the end of successive two semesters.” The double probation list shows that the Business College, with an enrollment of 11,242 students, has 1,955 or 17 percent on probation. The College of Agriculture and Forestry with an enrollment of 3,551 accounts for 755 or 21 percent on double probation; while out of the 8,000 in the Science College, 1852 or 23 percent of them are being placed on double probation.  Liberia College has a total enrolment of 5,524, but 598 or 10.8 percent of them are on double probation.As for Teachers’ College with 1, 993 students, there are 186 or 0.9 percent on double probation.  A further breakdown by departments shows the double probation affects 819 representing 15.33 percent of students from the Accounting Department; General Agriculture has 342 students, representing 10.14 percent; Biology Department has 533 students representing 10.35 percent, and Geology Department shows 532 students or 9.9 percent. However, based on the rules, students on the double probation list are likely to be suspended for one semester, but after serving the suspension, they will have the opportunity to apply for re-admission. Additionally, the Handbook states that a student is dropped from the university when at any time following the readmission after serving the suspension, his/her cumulative GPA remains less than 2.0 at the end of the semester.   That student will be dropped permanently from the university. The UL statement, signed by the vice president for UL Relations, Noris Tweah, added that presently, the university has more than 35,000 students on five campuses. Following the outbreak of the Ebola Virus Disease, the university reopened on March 17.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

International return for Neuer in Austria friendly

first_img“These are matches he needs, it’s a real test. Afterwards, it will be up to us to decide if it’s all OK.”Germany coach Joachim Loew has already said that Neuer would only travel to Russia for the June 14-July 15 World Cup as the number one goalkeeper.Loew has taken 27 players with him for their training camp, including four ‘keepers, with four to be cut before the list of the official 23-man squad is delivered to FIFA on Monday.Neuer, 32, took to the field for the first time since his injury on Monday, playing 30 minutes in a friendly against the German under-20 side. He was to repeat that against the same opposition on Wednesday.“Manuel needs these matches to once again be on 100 percent top form. They’ll help him to refind his confidence,” said Koepke.The assistant coach added: “In training, you can’t see any difference (with Neuer), it’s as if he’s never had a break.”Should Neuer come back, Barcelona ‘keeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen will find himself relegated to the bench after a year of filling in at number one.“He knows the situation,” Koepke said of Ter Stegen, with whom he and Loew have had talks over potential selection issues.“Manu is our captain, a world champion. We’re trying everything so it works out for him. Obviously Marc-Andre would love to play, but he can manage the situation.”0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Manuel Neuer hasn’t played competitively for club or country since September due to injury © AFP/File / MIGUEL MEDINABERLIN, Germany, May 29 – Germany’s captain and goalkeeper Manuel Neuer will return to international action in Saturday’s World Cup warm-up match against Austria after more than eight months on the sidelines because of a fractured foot.“Manuel will play, there’s nothing against that,” said goalkeeping coach Andreas Koepke from Germany’s training base in Eppan, Italy.last_img read more
