‘One of those weeks’: Woods doing well except with putter

first_imgTiger Woods reacts to his shot on the fourth hole during the third round of the Northern Trust golf tournament, Saturday, Aug. 25, 2018, in Paramus, N.J. (AP Photo/Mel Evans)PARAMUS, N.J. — Tiger Woods has shown he can put together a series of sub-par rounds.Contending in consecutive tournaments has been more difficult.ADVERTISEMENT 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 Woods missed six birdie putts from about 12 feet or closer. He has hit nine out of 14 fairways all three rounds, and he rarely was out of position when he did miss the greens in the third round. He’s just not seeing many putts go in, mainly because he says he can’t get the right line with the right speed.On a few occasions, he’s asked caddie Joe LaCava to help read the putts. It hasn’t mattered.“I’m just not seeing the lines this week,” Woods said. “Just the way it goes. I’ve called Joey in a few times this week. ‘Joey, I see three different breaks here.’ He said, ‘Yeah, so do I.’ I’m hitting in these spots where I’ve had double-breakers, if not triple-breakers, and I’m just not seeing or feeling correctly through those areas.”Such is golf. Woods chalked it up on more than one occasion to “one of those weeks.”But it extends a peculiar pattern this year of looking as though he were on the verge of winning, and then taking a step back.ADVERTISEMENT LATEST STORIES Gretchen Barretto’s daughter Dominique graduates magna cum laude from California college View comments Palace OKs total deployment ban on Kuwait OFWs Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew He had two straight weeks at the end of the Florida swing where he got within one shot of the lead on the back nine, and then he showed up at the Masters and finished in the middle of the pack. Woods showed plenty of momentum at The Players Championship (65-69 weekend) and the Memorial (67-68 in the middle two rounds), and then he missed the cut at the U.S. Open.One week after he briefly had the lead in the final round at the British Open, he tied for 31st at Firestone on a course where he has won eight times. He was runner-up at the PGA Championship in his most recent start, and now is playing for little more than pride or FedEx Cup points.His 68 at least allowed him to sleep in a little more on Sunday for the final round, though Woods all but conceded he was out of it. His hope was to finish at 10 under, which would mean a 64 in the final round. That would at least give him some good vibes going to the TPC Boston, where he won 12 years ago.“I think that would be a nice way to end the week,” he said. “It’s not going to win, but at least I can get some good momentum going into Boston.”He started the FedEx Cup playoffs at No. 20, and with only 30 players advancing to the Tour Championship, he still has some work left.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Gov’t in no rush to rescue animals in Taal ‘High crimes and misdemeanors’: Trump impeachment trial begins Will you be the first P16 Billion Powerball jackpot winner from the Philippines?

US$22,000 Call Center Donated to LNP

first_imgThe United Nations Police in Liberia (UNPOL) has turned over a fully equipped call center to the Liberia National Police (LNP) under UNPOL’s Quick Impact Project (QIP). The dedication of the call center, named the National Operation Center, took place yesterday at the LNP headquarters on Capitol Hill.Speaking at the turning over ceremony, UNPOL Commissioner   Gregory Hinds said the project was a result of the realization that the LNP needs a strong and effective National Operations Center (NOC) that would play a critical role in decision making at the highest level of the LNP. The UNPOL Commissioner stressed that the National Operations Center                                                                                                                          will serve as a ‘one stop shop’ for all collected and organized information and communication regarding the LNP operations countrywide. He said activities of the center will place special emphasis on the 990, 911 and 9955 emergency response lines in order to foster public confidence in the LNP and to ensure timely response to crime scenes and other emergencies.The QIP, valued at US$22,903, includes three desktop computers, 13 handheld radios, two office desks, one printer and other requisite supplies and comes with training for 30 LNP officers.Commissioner Hinds cautioned the police leadership to guard the facility jealously it will be of long term benefit to the LNP.In response, LNP Director, Col. Clarence Massaquoi thanked the UN Police for the project indicating that it will contribute to the LNP’s decentralization drive.Director Massaquoi said the QIP donated clearly demonstrates UNPOL’s willingness to enhance the capacity of the LNP, as the UN Mission gradually pulls out of the country.The Liberian police chief said  the call center will now afford the police the opportunity to communicate with its officers deployed in others parts of the country.He said the LNP will push for more funding in the National Budget to maintain the center, promising that the equipment will be used for their intended purposes to benefit the Liberian people.He called on the public to make use of the center by providing needed information to the police for the benefit of the citizens.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_imgLonestar Cell MTN Deputy CEO Roberts: “We have used the campaign to impact the lives of our young students…” The management of Lonestar Cell MTN on Thursday, June 1, 2017 officially launched its annual flagship corporate volunteering initiative “21 Days of Y’ello Care.”The ‘21 Days of Y’ello Care’ campaign was inaugurated in June 2007 by the MTN Group for staff in all the 22 African countries where it operates to dedicate their resources and time (between June 1 and 21) towards supporting education initiatives in their local communities.This year’s ‘Y’ello Care’ campaign was officially launched at the Monrovia Elementary Demonstration School under the theme “Investing in Education for All.”The deputy Chief Executive Officer of Lonestar Cell MTN, Louis Roberts, said during the course of the 21-day period, employees will work to make the learning environments of many young people more conducive by improving infrastructure and facilities, promoting digital learning and teaching, as well as donating equipment and learning materials.According to him, six schools in Monrovia will benefit from the ongoing ‘Y’ello Care’ campaign.He named the institutions as Loma Quarter Elementary School, A. Glenn Tubman Elementary School, Monrovia Demonstration Elementary School, C.D.B King Elementary School and the Gaye Town Elementary and Junior High School.Mr. Roberts disclosed that the initiative will also cover a school in each county where the company has a service center, including Grand Bassa, Nimba, Bong, Lofa, and Margibi.“Over the past years, we have used the campaign to impact the lives of our young students. We have set up computer labs, libraries, donated school materials, teaching and refurbishing schools among others,” he said.In response, the principal of the Monrovia Elementary Demonstration School, Madam Maryann Gongbay, lauded the mobile communications giant for its swift intervention.“We are so glad to be part of this initiative. For what you have done, there is nothing that you will do that will not succeed,” principal Gongbay added.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window) – Advertisement –last_img read more

West Brom set to send loan star back?

first_img Silvestre Varela 1 West Brom could send on-loan star Silvestre Varela back to Porto as it likely the midfielder will require surgery on his nagging groin problem.Baggies boss Alan Irvine has confirmed the club have contacted the Portuguese giants over the 29-year-old’s condition, which has restricted him to just 15 minutes of playing time since arriving at the Midlands club.The winger, who starred for Portugal at the World Cup in Brazil, will miss Saturday’s away trip to Liverpool and is expected to be assessed to find out the reason for his ongoing injury.Varela’s situation is still unclear and Scot Irvine explained Albion are in talks with Porto over the season-long loan player’s fitness.“He has got a groin problem which we are assessing at the moment and we are talking to Porto about that as well.“It’s difficult for me to say exactly where he is at this time.“He is their player, anything involving medical assessment of a player who isn’t your player it is common courtesy to talk to the parent club.”last_img read more

Last year, Bridget competed in the All-Ireland Track and Field Athletics Competition in Tullamore in Co. Offaly and she had barely finished her event when she made a dash to Clones for the Ulster Final.She literally wears her heart on her sleeve as nearly every outfit has the Donegal crest on it, she prides herself on wearing the county colours and all through her state exams Bridget wore a different Donegal jersey each day to bring her luck!Speaking about winning the competition Bridget said “I am delighted to have won ‘Donegal’s Biggest GAA Fan’ because my life revolves around the team and I never miss a game!“When I looked at the other nominees on the Daisi Facebook page, I saw that I am not alone with the love for Donegal GAA!

I hope some of my luck rubs off on the Donegal team now as they progress through the championship- that would be the ultimate prize!”As the winner of ‘Donegal’s Biggest GAA Fan’, Bridget has received an amazing VIP package which included an overnight stay for two people in the team’s hotel the night before the Ulster Final. A meet-and-greet and photo opportunity with Jim McGuiness and some of the players ahead of the Ulster Final and a pair of tickets to all of Donegal’s remaining matches of the 2014season.
