Tiger Woods shoots 65, his lowest score ever at Players

first_imgJury of 7 men, 5 women selected for Weinstein rape trial Don’t miss out on the latest news and information. Jiro Manio arrested for stabbing man in Marikina Woods shot a 7-under 65 in the third round Saturday, besting his previous low score on the Stadium Course by a stroke. He honed in his iron shots, fine-tuned his putter and was so hot through 12 holes that it looked as if he might challenge the Stadium Course record at TPC Sawgrass.“I wish I could repeat it more often, but honestly it was just a better start,” Woods said. “I got off to a much better-quality start.”FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folkSPORTSTim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crownWoods took advantage of warm temperatures, soft greens and little wind by making birdies at three of the first four holes . He drained putts of 15, 5, 10 and 17 feet, regaining a scoring touch that eluded him last week at the Wells Fargo Championship and in the opening two rounds in Ponte Vedra Beach.“Eventually I was going to put all the pieces together and today, for the most part, I did that,” he said. “I hit a lot of good, quality shots. I hit some shots in the correct spots, which was nice. I hit probably three of the best long irons I’ve hit all week.” Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Woods will be paired with Jordan Spieth for the final round Sunday and will start the day 11 shots behind Webb Simpson.No one has ever overcome such a deficit to win on the PGA Tour.Nonetheless, Woods likes how his game is coming together.He pointed to his tee shot at the 242-yard, par-3 eighth, which landed a little more than 30 feet from the hole; his second shot at the par-5 ninth, which stopped on the fringe from nearly 270 yards out; and his towering approach shot at the par-5 11th, which carried two bunkers and part of a pond before landing on the putting surface and leaving him a lengthy eagle putt.His only complaint was not keeping it rolling. He cooled off down the stretch, making five pars and a bogey over the final six holes.ADVERTISEMENT Cavs, Celtics ready for Eastern Conference finals rematch Dave Chappelle donates P1 million to Taal relief operations He pushed his drive into thick rough at the difficult par-4 14th and ended up with his lone bogey of the day. He had a chance to get it back two holes later, but lipped out a 10-footer following a stellar bunker shot.“To be 8-under there through 12, realistically I probably could have got a couple more out of it and got to 10 (under) for the day,” he said. “But I’ll take it.”He hit 11 of 14 fairways and 15 of 18 greens in regulation.But the biggest different was his putting. He needed just 27 putts, his fewest of the week. A day after making just one putt longer than 6 feet, he missed only one inside 13 feet in the third round.“It was nice. I made some putts today. That was basically the difference,” he said. “I’ve hit quality irons before and I was able to convert today and got rolling early. This golf course, as humid as it is right now, these greens are going to be holding all day and I knew that going in and I knew I had to be a little bit more aggressive in there and put the ball in these sections, and I was able to do that.”Woods started the day tied for 68th, but moved into fifth after getting to 9 under at No. 12. His jump was the talk of the course, and the already huge gallery following his every move really started growing at the turn. By the time Woods and playing partner Mackenzie Hughes got to 16, the frenzied crowd was dozens deep and craning for a glimpse of golf’s biggest star.Spieth matched Woods for the best score in the third round. They were at 8-under 208.Woods figured his stay near the top of the leaderboard would be a short one, but the wind picked up in the afternoon and no one matched the low score of the day.“It’s nice to kind of somewhat be up there,” he said.

GUMH Needs US$150K

first_imgThe Ganta United Methodist Hospital needs about US$150K to revamp its laboratory in order to provide all required medical examinations.Speaking to the Daily Observer in an exclusive interview recently, administrator Mr. Patrick Martor said when the laboratory is improved, nearly all tests will be done at the hospital, and patients will no longer be referred to other hospitals for diagnostic testing.He said presently, the hospital is not able to carry out all the essential laboratory tests.“Even though we do a small portion of the parasitology examination here, it needs to be improved,” he said. “We need to make the lab a more functioning laboratory.” Mr. Martor said the US$150k will enable the administration to standardize the building, equip the hospital and train personnel.The Ganta United Methodist Hospital is one of the oldest referral hospitals in Nimba County. It was established in the late 1920s by Dr. George Way Harley, a Methodist Missionary.Since Mr. Martor took over as administrator of the hospital last year, many developments have been taking place, including putting tiles on the hospital floor, improving the sanitation and the record system.The hospital has been recently fenced, and patients have to pass through what is known as a “triage” for temperature and other tests, before entering the main hospital.The management anticipates an increase in the size of the pediatric and adult wards.“We want to make the delivery ward a very decent place to encourage those who want to deliver in the hospital to have safe deliveries,” he said.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Response to Rufus Berry on Gender Ministry’s Handling of MTM Rape Saga

first_imgDear Editor,My attention was brought to a callously irresponsible and reckless accusation made in an article written in the Liberian Observer by Rufus Berry on October 16th  titled: “Bystanders Katie Meyler (More Than Me CEO), Ministries of Education and Gender are Just as Guilty as the Molesters.” In that article Berry suggested that as the Minister of Gender, I was “a bystander” during the rapes at the More Than Me Foundation.Berry wrote this article out of either mischief, spite, or the combination of both. What the lazy-minded critics like Berry and others forgot to realize, was that when the incident at MTM occurred in 2014, the country was in the throes of the devastating Ebola epidemic. As Minister of Gender at the time, my responsibility included, but was not limited to liaising with our foreign partners, including the World Health Organization (WHO), the International Committee of the Red Cross (IRC) and other NGOs to provide the emotional, psychological, and psychosocial support to our women who bore the brunt of that epidemic… up to 75 percent of the Ebola deaths were females.Even in the midst of this human catastrophe, our caseworkers investigated the More Than Me rapes, the victims identified and were provided welfare relief services. A complaint was made to the line agencies, the National Police Force and the Ministry of Justice, which led to the arrest of the predator. Of course, Rufus Berry wouldn’t know that, because the cowardly Berry did an Ebola Run; he fled Liberia to the safety of the US during the Ebola epidemic; additionally, a casual research on his part would have educated Mr. Berry to the statutory responsibilities and functions of the Ministry of Gender; that the Ministry of Gender does not have the power to arrest or prosecute child predators. The Ministry of Gender and Child Protection works in conjunction with other line government agencies such as the Ministry of Justice, the National Police Force, Ministry of Health, etcetera.If Berry is so interested in expanding the functions of the Ministry of Gender and Child Protection, this is an opportunity for him to petition his senators and representatives to give more powers to the aforesaid agency, instead of launching attacks out of ignorance.RegardsJulia Duncan-CassellShare this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Tullis’ body still at office of coroner

first_imgThe body of Florence “Rusty” Tullis is still at the county coroner’s office, nearly three months after she died. Los Angeles County officials said the 70-year-old Glendora resident, portrayed by Cher in the 1985 movie “Mask,” is expected to be cremated within the next two weeks. “The family contacted us and asked the county to dispose of the remains,” said Capt. Ed Winter. The family can claim the remains after the body has been cremated, Winter said. She wanted to be cremated, said Cunningham, “She didn’t want any dirt on her.” Tullis died Nov. 11 from injuries she received in an Oct. 14 motorcycle accident in Azusa, coroner’s officials said. She was recuperating from two broken legs and other injuries at the Rio Hondo Convalescent Hospital until Nov. 10, when she was rushed to Beverly Hospital after complaining of stomach pain, disorientation, and other symptoms. She died there the next morning, Winter said. The coroner’s examination was completed in January.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

The movie “Mask” was about Tullis’ son, Rocky Dennis. He was born with craniofacial disease, which made his head grow to twice its normal size. He died in 1978 at age 16. Her other son, Joshua, died at 32 from AIDS. Tullis’ niece, Helen Cunningham, said she plans to pick up the remains when the coroner makes them available. Cunningham said she was pleased to learn that her aunt will finally be cremated, and her wishes carried out, she said. last_img read more
