Woods missed the cut on his return from back surgery in the Quicken Loans National last month and holing from six feet on the last means he has yet to make early exits from consecutive events in his professional career. The 38-year-old’s last round in a major championship without a birdie had come on the opening day of the 2010 US Open. A round of 77 left Woods 14 shots adrift of halfway leader McIlroy, who carded a second consecutive 66 to finish 12 under par, matching Woods’ halfway total of 132 in 2006. American Dustin Johnson shot a flawless 65 to lie four behind McIlroy, whose Ryder Cup team-mates Sergio Garcia and Francesco Molinari, South African major winners Charl Schwartzel and Louis Oosthuizen and American pair Rickie Fowler and Ryan Moore were two shots further back on six under. McIlroy had made an unfortunate habit of following good rounds on Thursday with bad ones of Friday in 2014, the latest example being scores of 64 and 78 in the Scottish Open last week. A similar sequence at the Memorial at Muirfield Village even had tournament host Jack Nicklaus asking ‘How the Hell can you shoot 63 and then 78?’. In total he was 50 under par in the first round and nine over par in the second until carding seven birdies and just one bogey on Friday to boost his chances of becoming just the third player in the modern era – after Woods and Jack Nicklaus – to win three majors by the age of 25. “Hopefully I put that to bed today,” McIlroy said. “I didn’t have that in my head at all. Going out there I just wanted to play another solid round of golf, stick to my game plan, stick to doing what I do well and I went out there and executed the game plan the way I wanted to.” It is the first time McIlroy has led at halfway in a major since the 2011 US Open, which he went on to win by eight shots after rewriting the record books at Congressional. He also won the 2012 US PGA Championship by the same margin. “I don’t know if I can describe it. It’s just like I have an inner peace on the golf course,” he said of his front-running abilities. “I’m very comfortable in this position. I wish I could get into it more often. If I’m able to do it a few times a year, that’s nice. “I think it’s a combination of confidence and being mentally strong, mentally aware of everything.” McIlroy led after an opening 63 at St Andrews in 2010 before a second round of 80 in atrocious conditions and might have feared the worst when he bogeyed the first, but with the wind dropping he regained the lead with a two-putt birdie on the fifth and moved two ahead with another birdie on the sixth. Even the distraction of a pheasant wandering across the eighth green as he lined up another birdie putt failed to prevent McIlroy from picking up another shot, while he carded four more birdies on the back nine, aided by a drive of almost 400 yards on the 17th. In contrast, Woods pulled his opening drive so badly that it ended in thick rough to the left of the fairway on the adjacent 18th, from where he missed the green with his approach and ended up taking a double bogey. He also found rough on the second to bogey and a run of 14 straight pars was then followed by a wild drive out of bounds on the 17th. A triple-bogey seven suddenly dropped him outside the cut line and it took typical determination to birdie the last and make the weekend. “I was trying to be bolder, more aggressive,” Woods said. “I figured today was a chance where I could go out and be aggressive but I just didn’t drive the ball well.” Woods was left hoping he could produce something similar to Paul Lawrie’s comeback from 10 off the lead with just a round to play at Carnoustie in 1999 – and at least might have the same weather to do so. A “disruptive” forecast for a significant risk of thunderstorms has forced the R&A to use a two-tee start for the first time in championship history, with play due to start at 9am off the first and 10th tee in groups of three. Rory McIlroy exorcised his Friday demons in style as Tiger Woods almost paid the ultimate price for abandoning the tactics which previously brought him victory at Royal Liverpool in the second round of the 143rd Open Championship. Press Association Woods famously used his driver just once in 72 holes on his way to a third Open title in 2006 and was similarly circumspect in an opening 69 on Thursday. However, wayward drives on the first two holes and an even worse one out of bounds on the 17th meant the 14-time major winner had to birdie the 18th – his only birdie of the day – just to make the halfway cut on two over par.
Bio Donald Trump Jr. to host Holden campaign event – September 18, 2020 Latest Posts ELLSWORTH — With the high school squad’s youth and the middle school’s team size, Ellsworth appears to be growing another batch of outstanding cross-country runners.The Ellsworth Elementary-Middle School — which had 82 students running cross-country this season — finished the season strong, notching first-place victories for both the girls’ and boys’ teams at Thursday’s Coastal Division championships.“We had to take two buses to each away meet,” Principal Jim Newett said. “Pretty incredible.”The girls’ team won by 35 points, completing its season undefeated. The boys beat runner-up Brewer by 18 points after just narrowly defeating the same Brewer team by just one point the week prior.This is placeholder textThis is placeholder textEighth-graders Caitlin MacPherson and Matt Shea took first in the girls’ and boys’ races.“Both resounding victories for two deserving and hard-working eighth-graders,” Newett said. “Our greatest accomplishment is being at our best in our final race.”Top-10 female finishers for Ellsworth also included Abby Mazgaj (third), Layla Pickering (sixth) and Alli Dorr (10th).For the boys, Alec Leathers finished third and Nick Cormier placed 10th for Ellsworth.

The first-half points tie-breaker favored B’ville, so it went to third place in the standings. And because WG defeated F-M 25-23 on Oct. 11, it’s the Wildcats that will make the trip to AA-1 division regular-season champion Liverpool in next Friday’s opening round.Bitter as this was for the Hornets to accept, it could at least take particular pride in the way it fought back against a B’ville side that, many different times, appeared ready to put things away, but could not.Having surrendered a Braden McCard 55-yard interception return for a touchdown in the opening minutes, F-M answered with a scoring drive that Alex Dauksza finished off with a one-yard TD plunge. The second quarter featured the Hornets twice finding the end zone on runs of five yards by Jack Nucerino (who finished with 181 yards on 25 carries) and 32 yards by Will Duncanson, which B’ville answered both times, leaving the two sides 21-21 going to halftime.Pat May took over for the Bees, scoring on a 14-yard run and on passes of 20 and 37 yards from McCard, all of which bracketed Dauksza’s second TD on a three-yard run and left F-M trailing 35-27 in the fourth quarter.It was Dauksza’s 15-yard TD pass to Jake Leuze, plus a two-point run from Duncanson, that tied it 35-35, and when the Hornets finally made a key defensive stop, it drove once more to the goal line, where Duncanson’s one-yard plunge won it.That same night, CBA and Nottingham battled for fourth place in the Class AA-1 division, neither side having won a league game. With a late rally of its own, the Brothers gained a 41-35 victory over the Bulldogs and its playoff ticket.Nottingham scored 21 first-quarter points, but didn’t get away because the Brothers found the end zone twice and, despite getting shut out in the second period, still was within range, 28-14, at the break.During a tense second half, CBA proved unstoppable on offense, twice finding the end zone in the third quarter and then, still trailing 35-28, scoring two more times in the final period while its defense kept the Bulldogs quiet late.CBA is headed for a first-round playoff game at Utica Proctor, while East Syracuse Minoa, in Class A, saw its post-season dreams take a hit at Auburn when it took a 43-14 defeat to the Maroons at Holland Stadium.Having already lost league games to Whitesboro and Carthage, the Spartans could not afford another slip against Auburn, and when Tyler Bell dashed 10 yards to the end zone late in the first period, ESM had a 7-0 edge – but it didn’t last long.Less than a minute later, a 46-yard catch-and-run connection from Troy Churney to Robert Morris, plus a two-point conversion, had the Maroons in front, but even bigger was a fourth-down stop by Auburn deep in its own territory early in the second period.On the very next play after that stop, Shaheed Beal dashed 83 yards for a TD. As if that wasn’t damaging enough, Beal took an ESM punt deep in his own end and brought it back 80 yards for six more points.By the time Churney had found Owen Spearing on a 49-yard scoring pass and Connor Mahunik had returned a Spartans fumble 63 yards for a TD, Auburn had rendered 36 unanswered points, all on big plays. ESM never recovered, only scoring again in the fourth quarter on Bell’s 32-yard pass to Nolan Palmer.Like CBA, Jamesville-DeWitt was winless heading into this week, but finally broke that skid against PSLA-Fowler, the Red Rams earning a 35-16 victory over the Falcons.Short scoring runs of one yard by Carter King and two yards by Evan Dougherty had J-D up 15-0 by the end of the first quarter. King then struck deep for a 58-yard scoring pass to David Stewart that made it 22-0 going into halftime.PSLA-Fowler did score twice in the third period, including a remarkable punt return where Bryant Delavega took the Rams kick on his own two-yard line, found a seam and dashed 98 yards the other way.But J-D was able to get clear with two more touchdowns of its own late, Dougherty getting free for a 34-yard scoring dash and Caleb Smith finding the end zone from 28 yards out.Share this:FacebookTwitterLinkedInRedditComment on this Story With a 3-4 overall record, the Fayetteville-Manlius football team will miss the Section III Class AA playoffs, but with a 1-6 mark, Christian Brothers Academy will see post-season action.Absurd as this seems, especially since F-M defeated CBA 40-16 in mid-September, that’s how things worked out in the wake of Friday night’s regular-season finales, despite the Hornets making a stirring fourth-quarter comeback to defeat Baldwinsville 42-35.As the final Class AA-2 division standings shook out, F-M, B’ville and West Genesee (who defeated Rome Free Academy 27-14) all finished with 2-3 league marks, tying for third place behind Utica Proctor (5-0) and Cicero-North Syracuse (3-2).

Scott Longley – Confusion reigns over FDC’s second betting rights deal July 14, 2020 888 calls for Betgenius sportsbook makeover June 25, 2020 Related Articles Share Share StumbleUpon Submit Altenar: Supporting expansion plans in Denmark and Portugal August 20, 2020 Genius Sports has won a Danish injunction order against rival data supplier FirstPlay A/S related to the duplication of its business model, poaching of staff and theft of business-sensitive information.The Copenhagen filed injunction accused FirstPlay of unethical business practices, poaching Genius Sports talent to acquire IP secrets and further business-sensitive data in order to establish a new sports data enterprise.The Copenhagen court had been asked to preside over whether FirstPlay had purposely targeted poaching Genius Sports staff based in Sofia (Bulgaria) working in the firm’s data processing centre.During 2018, Genius Sports had expanded its Sofia systems capacity by acquiring ‘InPlay Sports Data’ – a unit it believes was purposely targeted by FirstPlay seeking to poach staff in order to secure sensitive business information related to its sports portfolio and pricing models.Genius Sports backed its accusations by presenting emails sent to its Sofia staff seeking ‘knowledge of trade secrets/business-related sensitive data’.Ruling in favour of Genius Sports, the Copenhagen court judged that FirstPlay’s actions had deliberately resulted in a ‘talent drain’, breaching the business code of the Danish Marketing Practices Act.As a result, the Copenhagen court deems that FirstPlay a Denmark registered enterprise cannot ‘directly or indirectly to carry on activities that involve collection, processing and distribution of sports data’ for a period of 18-months.Genius Sports has praised the court’s judgement detailing the result as a vindication for ‘ethical business practices’ and transparency of services. Furthermore, the sports data supplier has confirmed that it will undertake similar court injunction proceedings against FirstPlay within Bulgarian courts.Meanwhile, FirstPlay management has confirmed that it will launch an appeal against the injunction which it believes is unnecessary and overstated as only six employees had been recruited from Genius Sports.
If not, well, the already dark road the Lakers are traveling might take a sharp turn into a ditch so deep it’ll be years before they safely emerge.Russell, all of 20 years old, thought it would be a funny prank to tape teammate Nick Young while asking him some leading questions about his personal life. Young, unaware he was being filmed, fell into the trap. And in the process, disclosed some titillating tidbits about his life off the court.Two major problems: First, Young is currently engaged to be married. Second, the video ended up surfacing on a gossip site for everyone to see.Including Young’s fiancée, pop star Iggy Azalea.And of course, Russell’s teammates are reacting as anyone might after such an egregious breach of trust occurs among friends, family members or co-workers.By throwing up the one-finger salute in Russell’s direction and telling him to take a hike.His Lakers teammates want no part of him, and have sentenced him to isolated confinement in the locker room and everywhere else.This goes beyond just anger and dislike.Russell broke all sorts of rules — and not just professional athlete rules, either.No matter what you think about a co-worker or friend’s lifestyle, you simply don’t publicly air their laundry. It’s not your business, place or duty. Period.And no matter how innocent or funny you might think a prank is, you damn sure better be careful enough keep it between you and the intended target.Russell is wrong on all levels. And he deserves the repercussions.But there is another issue in play, and it has to do with making sure the stupidity of youth doesn’t derail the future of the Lakers.Which is where Kobe Bryant comes in.It would be different if Russell was some seasoned veteran who should know better. The reality is, he’s just an immature kid.That doesn’t excuse him for what he did, but it should buy him a little bit of wiggle room as he attempts to regain some of the trust he’s lost.No one knows more than Bryant the fine line that exists in the confined work environment of a professional locker room. He’s been both the victim and the culprit of breaches of trust — both in airing a teammate’s infidelities and having his own laundry exposed by his head coach. But he eventually survived the locker room rift he created by disclosing some details of Shaquille O’Neal’s personal life to a couple of Colorado police officers — and won back the trust of his teammates in the process.He forgave Phil Jackson for throwing him under the bus in an infamous book and went on to win two more NBA titles under Jackson.These are life lessons Bryant can point to in paving a path of forgiveness, on which Russell can walk back into the good graces of his teammates.Bryant can’t entirely squash what happened — it’s much too soon for that — but he can call upon the young Lakers to see the bigger picture. Russell is a huge part of the Lakers’ future, as are at least three of his teammates. They need to move past this. They need to coexist. On and off the court.They don’t have to like each other. But they do have to function with one another.Russell made a stupid mistake, but if it was one of pure ignorance in a silly attempt for a laugh, it shouldn’t be his Lakers death sentence.Only one person in the Lakers family has enough clout and respect to deliver that message, and make sure it’s heeded.If Kobe has one last big shot in him, it has to be this. At the risk of interrupting Kobe Bryant’s touching and nostalgic farewell tour, or heaping one last assignment on his desk before he dribbles into a blissful retirement, it looks like we have to lean on him one final time to save the day.If the stakes weren’t so high or the long-range implications not so daunting, we wouldn’t bother him so close to the finish line.Kobe should be eyeing some private island right now. Or a lush golf course. Or his beloved Italy.Not being asked to clean up the mess of the bunch of adolescents with whom he shares the Lakers locker room. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error But I’m not gonna lie, Mamba. The Lakers need you in the worst possible way.So if you have one last big shot in you, right about now would be the time to launch it.The would-be future face of the franchise dove head-first into a vat of hot water, and the seething eyes of every one of his teammates stare angrily at him hoping he boils in his own ignorance.At this point, you are probably the only person in the Lakers family with enough clout and respect to reach an arm out and pull D’Angelo Russell from the mess he’s created.• RELATED: D’Angelo Russell losing Lakers teammates’ support amid video controversy
The Belgian, As Real Madrid pointed out, he spends weeks at his home in Spain. Surrounded by his family, he works from a plan designed by the club’s medical and fitness specialists with the aim of recovering after having surgery in Dallas on March 5. His purpose is to be back by the time the competition resumes. For example, this is how you have analyzed your debut scorer with the Belgian Red Devils, On October 7, 2011, Belgium’s 2-1 4-1 win over Kazakhstan: “Great pass from Dries (Mertens). Hand in hand with the goalkeeper, I think I’m doing very well for him. I did very well. Also, it was the first time I played with the ’10’. Great moment in history. “ It was in his 23rd encounter with his country, and now he already exceeds a hundred internationalities: “It is a large number, 100 games with 28 years … But we owe even more to ourselves in the sense of being an example for young people who come, trying to do things in the best possible way. “Hazard has also recalled his promotion to Belgium captain: “It was Marc Wilmots who gave me the bracelet for the first time. I was very proud. At first I said to myself ‘you’re kidding me’ because I never thought I would be a captain. But it was something that helped me because it allowed me to be a gentleman, also off the field. ” “For me it is important to be the leader of a team with so much talent. It is something really fantastic. I hope that this group still has great things ahead “, Eden finished. Belgium has taken advantage of the confinement to broadcast a video of Eden Hazard (29 years old), its captain and great star. In it, the Madrid player reviews the milestones that have marked his career with his selection, as his first goal or wearing the bracelet.

Sergio Aguero scored a controversial opener he appeared offside but conceded an equaliser, by Vurnon Anita, and are now 12 points behind leaders Leicester City with four games and 12 pointsavailable left to play.However, Stoke City arrive on the back of a poor run which has seen them lose their last two games while conceding eight goals, including last Monday’s 4-0 home thrashing by title-chasing Tottenham.And away from home they have scored just 18 goals. However, when they met City in December at the Britannia Stadium they won 2-0 with a brace from Marko Arnautovic, a win sufficient to topple Manuel Pellegrini’s men off the top of the Premier League.It was the first time Stoke had scored more than one goal in a Premier League game against City. However, last season, Stoke won 1-0 at the Etihad Stadium with a goal from Mame Diouf.That shock win ended a run of six Premier League visits without a win or a goal. In those previous six visits, Stoke had conceded 15 goals, including three on four occasions.City’s home record is not as impressive as in recent campaigns. They have lost five games, more than at any time since the 2008-09 campaign (six), with two to go there. But they have scored 41 home goals, the most in the Premier League.The home side recalled Vincent Kompany at Newcastle while Gael Clichy and Bacary Sagna undergo tests for this game and ahead of next week’s Champions League semi-final against Real Madrid.Stoke, meanwhile, miss Jack Butland, Glen Johnson, Jonathan Walters and Marc Wilson through injury while Erik Pieters serves the second of a two-game ban for collecting 10 yellow cards.

Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window) The Bong University Students Union (BUSU), has volunteered the services of its membership in the fight against Ebola.BUSU groups Bong County students from all universities across the country and constitutes the umbrella organization of the county’s higher education student community. It leadership has therefore expressed the hope that the county administration and Ebola Taskforce would take advantage of the students offer.“Since the outbreak of Ebola, you have not seen us as sons and daughters of this soil, but as of today, September 27, you can begin making use of our volunteerism in whatever meaningful way you want us to serve in the fight against the Ebola menace,” BUSU President, Germue Kwenah declared.According to him, the fight against the dreaded Ebola virus disease (EVD) is the responsibility of all Liberians, and henceforth, the student union decided to contribute its human resources to obtain victory over the virus.Kwenah made the statement when BUSU donated an assortment of anti-Ebola materials to the county’s Ebola Taskforce at the weekend. Items donated by the BUSU leadership included 20 kg of chlorine, two hand-washing buckets and 1,000 pieces of flyers containing anti-Ebola messages.Bong County Development Superintendent, Anthony Sheriff, who received the items, thanked the students for the donation, which he described as “a worthy gesture.”He then promised to turn over the items and convey the students’ pledge to volunteer their services to Bong County Superintendent, Selena Polson Mappy.Sheriff observed that the students would be better placed in the areas of awareness and mobilization as there continues to be Ebola-related situations that must be addressed through awareness, sensitization and mobilization.
