Fowler Leads The Barclays Going Into Final Round

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York By John DundonThrough three rounds of the Barclays at Bethpage Black, Rickie Fowler holds the outright lead at 9-under par.Fowler’s weekend at The Black has been the epitome of consistency. At a course where the mental aspect of the game is just as important as the physical aspect, Fowler’s yielded just one bogey through his first three rounds—54 holes of golf at or under par. A big part of that? Remaining positive through adversity.“The putter’s starting to show up a bit. I’ve always been a very good putter, I mean, you have to have the confidence and belief in yourself to be a good putter.” Fowler said.“I enjoy that part of the game. Especially when you are making putts and it’s been bad, the past few months, just seeing myself hit good putts and not go in. To see it starting to come around, it’s definitely helped out the rest of the game,” Rickie professed.Fowler, 27, like all of the golfers spending the weekend on Long Island, places the stash of FedEx Cup points up for grabs in high regard. If you didn’t know any better, you’d think the crowd out at Bethpage State Park had an investment in the standings themselves, as they’ve been a factor.“It’s a lot of fun playing in front of loud crowds,” Fowler said. “We’re going to take care of our business and hopefully I’ll give myself a chance to celebrate with them tomorrow late.”One of those who spent the day chasing Fowler (-9) was former world number one golfer Adam Scott.Scott sits at 7-under heading into championship Sunday. The tour-veteran’s third round was one of the tournament’s best as he made up six strokes today alone. Scott’s been satisfied with his performance away from the greens, where, like Fowler, putts finally began to fall today thanks in part due to keeping a level head.“When you’re not making them and they are always a little bit short, you start thinking about too many things, stroke, line, speed, all that kind of stuff,” Scott said after his round. “I just freed my mind up a little with the putter today and just thought, we’ll see what happens, and they went in.”In a game as humbling as golf, there are sure to be ups and downs. Phil Mickelson’s round was encouraging—at one point he found himself 3-under—until he got to the 17th tee box.“I had a good round going. I played a good front nine, and hit some good shots. The back nine, I didn’t play my best but I was fighting.” Mickelson told members of the media after the round. “Unfortunately the last two holes weren’t very good.”That would be the understatement of the century.Mickelson hit his tee shot on 17 fat. After chipping out of the front-left bunker, he missed a par putt that would’ve gotten the crowd so loud people would’ve been woken up in Montauk. On 18, disaster struck in the form of a double bogey. Again, this gaff originated in trouble off of the tee. The lefty had an opportunity to save bogey and missed a 15-foot putt, again forcing the grandstand into an audible groan.The 18th hole would go on to be more of the same. Mickelson found himself in the sand off the tee. From there, another bunker. Mickelson, a noted master at saving par and getting himself out of trouble, couldn’t save himself when he needed it most.Other notable names, including Jason Day, 5-under, and Jordan Spieth, 3-under, squandered opportunities to get back to the top of the leaderboard throughout the day. Conventional wisdom says they may have run out of time with just one round left to play.Then again, anything can happen at Bethpage Black.last_img read more

No further charges over Kahui twins deaths

first_imgNZ Herald 18 oct 2012Police have confirmed no further charges will be laid over the deaths of babies Chris and Cru Kahui. Their father Chris Kahui was charged with murder after the twins died from head injuries six years ago. He was acquitted by a High Court jury after 10 minutes of deliberation in 2008. Mr Kahui again came under the spotlight after a coroner’s report in July placed the blame with him, noting he was the only person near the three-month-olds when their fatal injuries happened. Police at the time said they would consider the new evidence given at the coroner’s inquest before deciding if they would press any other charges over the deaths. But police have now confirmed no further charges would be laid following a comprehensive review, One News reported.http://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=10841435last_img read more

Cricket News Test championship is coming at a right time for cricket: Virat Kohli

first_img New Delhi: Virat Kohli’s Indian cricket team was touted as one of the favourites in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019. After losing only one out of the nine league games in the tournament, Kohli’s India took on a determined New Zealand side led by Kane Williamson in the semi-final. However, India ended up on the wrong side of the result as they lost by 18 runs to be eliminated in the knock-out stages for the fifth consecutive time. Brushing aside the disappointment of the World Cup exit, Kohli’s side embarks on a tour of West Indies which will feature three T20Is, three ODIs and two Tests. The two-Test series will be the second in the new World Test Championship, with the first being the Ashes contest between England and Australia. In an exclusive interview to Times of India, Virat Kohli has said the Test championship is coming at a right time for cricket as it gives every series more importance and relevance. “It’s very exciting. I think it’s happening at the right time for Test cricket. Although you are going to play a bilateral series, the meaning and importance are way more. You have to plan for every series. I was excited about something of this sort and now it is coming to life,” Kohli said. With India now looking ahead to future challenges in a post-World Cup scenario, the focus will be on building the team for the next few ICC events. With the seniors now playing the role of mentors, the focus will be on youngsters. Kohli had nothing but praise for the new crop of youngsters in Rishabh Pant, Shreyas Iyer and Shubman Gill. Pant is the No.1 choice keeper for the West Indies series across formats while Iyer and Gill will be aiming to consolidate their position in the No.4 spot, something that has troubled India for the last couple of years. “They are amazing. The level of confidence that they have is amazing to see. As I have mentioned so many times before, at 19-20, we were not even half the players these guys are. Skills have developed because of exposure to tournaments like the IPL. It’s the best thing that can happen to a cricketer. They are so confident by the time they come here (national team) that they learn very quickly from their mistakes,” Kohli said. The skipper also spoke about the current dynamics of the dressing room and highlighted the friendly atmosphere, stating there was no shouting between members. “Daantne wala mahaul ab toh change room mein hai hi nahin (the culture of scolding people isn’t there in the change room now). As friendly as I am with Kuldeep, I am friendly with MS Dhoni. The atmosphere is such that anyone can say anything to anyone. I am like walking up to people and telling them, ‘dekh, maine yeh galtiya kari hain, tu mat kar’ (Look, I have committed these mistakes, make sure you don’t do them),” Kohli said. highlights For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps.center_img India will embark on a tour of West Indies in August.India were eliminated in the semi-final of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 by New Zealand.The World Test Championship will begin with the Ashes series between England and Australia.last_img read more
