Sergio wins first Tour event since ’17 Masters

first_imgJACKSON, Miss. – Sergio Garcia delivered two key shots on the back nine, the last one an 8-iron to 30 inches on the final hole for birdie and a one-shot victory in the Sanderson Farms Championship. Garcia closed with a 5-under 67 and won for the 10th consecutive year worldwide, and the first time on the PGA Tour since the 2017 Masters. Peter Malnati, whose lone PGA Tour victory came at this tournament five years ago, closed with a career-best 63 and waited nearly two hours to see if it would hold up. It almost did. Garcia was two shots behind when he hit 5-wood on the par-5 14th that narrowly cleared a bunker, hitting in the top collar, onto the fringe and rolling out to just inside 4 feet for eagle to tie for the lead. He had to save par from a bunker with a 5-foot putt on the 15th after a poor tee shot, and then he delivered the winner with a big tee shot on the 18th and an 8-iron from 171 yards. Garcia immediately began walking after the shot, and it dropped down next to the hole and settled right behind it. Golf Central Watch: Garcia’s clutch approach sets up winner BY Brentley Romine  — October 4, 2020 at 7:20 PM Sergio Garcia stuck his approach shot at the par-4 18th hole to set up a winning 2-foot birdie putt to win the Sanderson Farms Championship. Closing his eyes right before the stroke, a habit he returned to this week, he made it and clenched his fist with a grin not seen on the 40-year-old Spaniard lately. One week after falling out of the top 50 in the world for the first time since 2011, Garcia won for the 11th time on the PGA Tour and the 31st time worldwide. He finished at 19-under 269. Sanderson Farms Championship: Full-field scores | Full coverage J.T. Poston, who started the final round in a three-way tie with Garcia and Cameron Davis of Australia, was one shot behind when he missed the 16th fairway to the right, went into a bunker and failed to save par. He finished with two pars for a 70 to finish alone in third. Davis had three bogeys on the front nine and was never a factor, closing with a 72.last_img read more

US study questions if pets make owners healthier

first_imgTaipei Times:Pet owners have long been encouraged to think that they are happier, healthier and live longer than people without pets, but a new US study claims they might be barking up the wrong tree.Howard Herzog, a professor of psychology at Western Carolina University, says studies conducted in the past to determine whether having a pet improves health and longevity have “produced a mishmash of conflicting results.”“While pets are undoubtedly good for some people, there is presently insufficient evidence to support the contention that pet owners are healthier or happier or that they live longer” than people without pets, Herzog wrote in the August issue of Current Directions in Psychological Science.Read more: Taipei Times More of our Members in the Media >last_img read more

We all need to be mindful of the words and actions we use and how they can be perceived by others.”England international Alli has been thriving in an advanced role under new Spurs manager Jose Mourinho, having scored seven goals across all competitions since the Portuguese coach took charge in November.He will now miss Tottenham’s first match back, the visit of Champions League qualification rivals Manchester United on June 19.($1 = 0.7901 pounds)Relatedlast_img read more

SeaLife Center Announces The Hatch Of Giant Pacific Octopus’ Eggs

first_imgThe center said giant pacific octopuses usually lay a clutch of between 20,000 to 80,000 eggs, from which about 1 percent of the young survive in the wild. Success rates are even lower in captivity due to hatchlings’ fragility. For about a year, the hatchlings will remain afloat, translucent except for their large eyes and the colored spots of their chromatophores — cells that octopuses can open and close to change color. Gilligan, the eldest female giant Pacific octopus at the ASLC began laying her eggs May 2017. About 2 weeks ago ASLC aquarists noticed tiny cephalopods floating around the tank. Gilligan encourages them to hatch by blowing water from her mantle onto the egg bundles. ASLC Aquarium Curator, Richard Hocking, expects all the eggs to hatch by the end of May. FacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享The Alaska SeaLife Center in Seward is getting a shot at raising thousands of octopus hatchlings. The center’s octopus named Gilligan, has raised about 100 eggs into hatchlings with more to come. Gilligan is around 30 pounds (13 kilograms) now, but weighed about 50 pounds (22.6 kilograms) when she laid her eggs. Gilligan, her eggs, and the hatchlings are on public display in the SeaLife Center’s “Octopus Grotto” exhibit.last_img read more

SA steady on governance levels

first_img13 July 2007South Africa performed steadily in the World Bank’s latest Worldwide Governance Indicators report, showing improvements in all but one of the categories.The 2007 report, the sixth of its kind, covers 212 countries and territories, building on research on the importance of governance and its impact on development from 1996 to 2006.The indicators measure voice and accountability, political stability and absence of major violence and terror, government effectiveness, regulatory quality, rule of law, and control of corruption.The lowest reading on South Africa’s report is that of 44% for political stability, though it has been steadily rising from a low of 13% in 1996. The highest score is almost 77% in the effective governance category, just shy of the 78% high set in 1998.Though performance in the control on corruption category, at 71% is down from the 1996 high of 76%, South Africa’s performance has been on the increase since 2003.The best performer for South Africa over the decade has been the regulatory quality category, which has risen from 51% in 1996 to 70% in 2006. It has also risen by almost 4% over the past year.The only category where South Africa’s performance declined was in the voice and accountability category, which slipped from 71% in 2005 to 67% in 2006.Percentage rankings indicate the percentage of countries worldwide that rate below the selected country, so a higher value indicates better governance ratings.‘Significant improvements’ in AfricaA statement issued by the World Banks states that “significant improvements” have been made over the past decade in Africa, particularly in countries like Niger, Sierra Leone, Angola, Democratic Republic of Congo, Liberia, Tanzania and Rwanda.Though the report’s co-author and the World Bank Institute’s director of global governance, Daniel Kaufmann, said this was hopeful news, he acknowledged that there was no evidence that governance in the world at large improved markedly over the past decade and that results varied.“The good news is that some countries, including some of the poorest ones in Africa, are deciding to move forward, and are showing to the world that it is possible to make substantial inroads in improving governance over a relatively short period of time – in less than a decade,” he said.Kaufmann states that such improvements in governance are critical for aid effectiveness and for sustained long-run economic growth.“Bribery around the world is estimated at about US$1-trillion, and the burden of corruption falls disproportionately on the bottom billion people living in extreme poverty,” he said.The report shows that between the period 1998 to 2006, African countries like Kenya, Niger, Sierra Leone have shown marked recent improvements in voice and accountability, while Algeria and Liberia have strengthened their rule of law.Also, countries like Algeria, Angola Libya, Rwanda and Sierra Leone have made improvements in political stability and Tanzania has recorded gains on control of corruption.The report also shows, however, that other African countries still face enormous governance and development challenges, with declines in the governance indicators for Cote d’ Ivoire and Zimbabwe.However, Kaufmann warns that it’s not only developing countries that face governance challenges, stating that new data shows that a number of emerging economies rate better in governance and control of corruption than some rich industrialised economies.SouthAfrica.info reporter Want to use this article in your publication or on your website?See: Using SAinfo materiallast_img read more
