Havret leads by one at Trophee Hassan II

first_imgRABAT, Morocco – Gregory Havret took the outright lead at the Trophee Hassan II in Morocco as he moved to 6 under par after the second round on Friday. The Frenchman made four birdies and an eagle at Royal Golf Dar Es Salam for his second straight 3-under 70, opening a one-shot lead over Lucas Bjerregaard and Trevor Fisher Jr. Denmark’s Bjerregaard carded a 2-under 71 and South Africa’s Fisher Jr. a 3-under 70. Havret was part of a four-way tie for the lead overnight but pushed clear and could have had more of an advantage heading to the weekend if he hadn’t bogeyed his last two holes. His last victory on the European Tour was nine years ago. Bjerregaard, who also had a share of the first-round lead, had four birdies and two bogeys. Fisher Jr. put himself in contention with six birdies, although he also made double bogey on No. 16, his seventh hole. Paul Dunne, Gregory Bourdy, and James Morrison, another of the overnight leaders, are all another shot back in a tie for fourth at 4 under.last_img read more

McCarron (64) edges Kelly in Madison event

first_imgMADISON, Wis. – Scott McCarron won the American Family Insurance Championship on Sunday, closing with an 8-under 64 for a one-stroke victory over hometown player Jerry Kelly. The 52-year-old McCarron birdied Nos. 14-16 and parred the final two to hold on for his first victory of the season and seventh in three years on the PGA Tour Champions. He finished at 15-under 201 at University Ridge. ”All week, I drove the ball really well and I was hitting a lot of good iron shots,” McCarron said. ”I hit a lot of greens. I think I made one bogey all week and that was early on Friday. Just missed a short putt, one of the par 3s and made bogey. Other than that, I really didn’t have any other opportunities to make bogeys. I just kept putting myself in play.” McCarron looked forward to the stretch of three straight major tournaments that begins Thursday with the U.S. Senior Open at The Broadmoor in Colorado. ”Obviously, my game’s pretty good, just won this week, so I’m pretty happy the way I’m hitting it.” McCarron said. ”I started putting better this week. I’ve got to work on my wedge game. I’ve got to wedge it closer. I have a lot of wedges out here.” Full-field scores from the American Family Insurance Championship Kelly shot 65, also parring the final two holes. ”I’m disappointed, there’s no doubt,” Kelly said. ”I want those putts back. I want to just go ahead and hit them hard.” Kelly joked about friend McCarron paying him back for a friendly match with McCarron’s wife. ”My caddie, Eric and I, beat Jenny and Scott over at Maple Bluff Country Club earlier this week, beat them out of five bucks,” Kelly said. ”I should have thrown that match.” Fellow Madison player Steve Stricker, the tournament host and first-round leader, had a 65 to tie for third with 2017 champion Fred Couples and Colin Montgomerie. ”The way it ended up, couldn’t have asked for anything more,” Stricker said. ”Great turnout of people, the players loved it, and we got a great field and some exciting golf down the stretch.” Couples had a 67, playing alongside McCarron. ”We all said it yesterday, with all those guys there, somebody shoots 7, 8 under will win – and I watched it today,” Couples said. ”He was phenomenal. He played a stress-free, easy round of golf and I think I lost to him by two, but I was never going to beat him.” Montgomerie followed a second-round 72 with a 64. ”I didn’t play well at all yesterday, at all,” Montgomerie said. ”So disappointing yesterday … out here, 72, get trampled on.” Paul Goydos (67) was 12 under, John Daly (67) topped the group at 11 under, and Bernhard Langer (69) was another stroke back. University of Illinois coach Mike Small, Stricker’s teammate with the Illini, birdied the final hole for a 68 to also tie for 10th at 10 under. Steve and I have been best friends for 30 years,” Small said. ”It’s great to have him get me in the tournament and validate him helping me get in and getting an exemption. That’s huge. I finished top 10 in Iowa at Des Moines two weeks ago. It was my first top 10 in a Champions event. So, to back up with this, and this was a strong field, it feels good to compete.” Second-round leader Esteban Toledo had a 73 to tie for 24th at 8 under.last_img read more

Obituary: Gordon Mayne, Maynes Coaches of Buckie

first_imgGordon Mayne, Managing Director of Maynes Coaches of Buckie, passed away suddenly on 29 July. He was 67.Mr Mayne was the third generation of the Mayne family to be involved with the family business. His grandfather Jimmy founded the Moray operator in 1947. Trained as a welder in a local shipyard, Mr Mayne took the reins in 1982 after the death of his father Donnie.Since then, Mr Mayne has driven the company’s rise to become one of Scotland’s most respected coach operators. In 1992, with the fleet numbering around 20, former premises at Cluny Lane had become inadequate and a move to the current home on Marchmont Industrial Estate took place. Since then, Maynes has expanded to operate 45 vehicles and employ over 60 members of staff while maintaining a regular fleet replacement programme.One hallmark of Maynes’ holiday programme in previous decades was trips to Blackpool and Scarborough. The group would often find themselves travelling home on a new coach collected from Duple or Plaxton, respectively.Gordon Mayne with his sons David (left) and Kevin (right) in 2017Mr Mayne was also a regular sight at coach factories further afield as he and his sons David and Kevin specified and oversaw the construction of later fleet additions.Mr Mayne was acknowledged by his peers as being a true coachman. His passion for the industry was clear to all that met him and he and was involved with trade bodies that represented it.Maynes became a member of The Guild of British Coach Operators under his watch, something that Kevin Mayne recalls was a very proud achievement for the company.Mr Mayne also took great pleasure in attending industry social gatherings and events. When doing so, he was sure to fly the flag for Scotland. Although head of the company, he still ‘kept his hand in’ by driving day trips and tours when needed, subscribing to the view that he would never ask anyone to do anything he could not do himself.Mr Mayne’s wife Sandra died in 2011. The family business remains in the safe hands of the fourth and fifth generations of the Mayne family.The funeral will be private. Details of the date and route of the procession will be announced in due course on the Maynes Coaches Facebook page.last_img read more

Watch: Conan Spoofs Apple’s New U2 Removal App

first_imgApple recently pulled a controversial marketing stint by buying the rights to U2’s latest album Songs of Innocence for $100 million and placing it in your iTunes, without your knowledge or consent. The bold move has caused hoards of backlash from the Apple community, who apparently do not like having their phones raped by Bono. In response, Apple quickly put out a link to remove the album with one click. But what if once you’ve heard the album, the removal device just isn’t enough?

Tyler, The Creator Banned From Entering The UK

first_imgRapper Tyler, The Creator, co-founder of Odd Future, has been banned from entering the UK for 3-5 years due to the nature of his lyrics. The lyrics in question, however, are from 6-7 years ago, from his albums Bastard and Goblin.Tyler The Creator Says Odd Future Is No MoreAccording to a letter from the UK Secretary of State, Tyler’s material “encourages violence and intolerance of homosexuality” and “fosters hatred with views that seek to provoke others to terrorist acts.” A Tumblr post from his manager Christian Clancy ensures that he’s steered away from this type of subject material for years, and that he was just 18 when those controversial albums were written.Tyler will be forced to cancel four tour dates in the UK and Ireland, including an appearance at Reading and Leeds.The UK Home Office issued a vague followup statement, saying, “Coming to the UK is a privilege, and we expect those who come here to respect our shared values. The Home Secretary has the power to exclude an individual if she considers that his or her presence in the UK is not conducive to the public good or if their exclusion is justified on public policy grounds.”While several other rappers have experienced similar prohibitions from entering the UK, such as Snoop Dogg and Busta Rhymes, in those cases it was for criminal offenses, not song lyrics.Many of Tyler’s early lyrics were indeed controversial, but should someone be beholden to something they did or said when they were 18? Moreover, is this a violation of free speech?[Via The Guardian]last_img read more

Playoffs Pulse: Analyzing the field after Martinsville

first_imgAfter the opening race of the Round of 8 in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Playoffs at Martinsville Speedway, here’s a brief look at the playoff picture. There are two races remaining in the Round of 8 before the field is whittled to the Championship 4, with four drivers eliminated from the postseason following the race at ISM Raceway near Phoenix on Nov. 10.WinnerMartin Truex Jr. dominated Sunday at Martinsville, claiming his seventh win of the season. The victory also adds five playoff points to his total (along with two more he got for winning Stage 1 and Stage 2) and locks him into the Championship 4. He is the first driver to clinch a spot in the championship race at Homestead-Miami Speedway.RELATED: Official race resultsWho’s hotRyan Blaney. Blaney was not pushed around at the .526-mile track. The driver of the No. 12 looked every bit like a short-track veteran during the frenetic closing laps, using his chrome horn when appropriate and showing restraint when necessary. He finished fifth and gained a bit of ground in the process.Denny Hamlin. Hamlin won the Busch Pole Award, and although the No. 11 team lost the point early on a slow pit stop, the Virginia native drove his way back through the field, even as track conditions changed and his car lost some of its bite. A fourth-place run puts him comfortably ahead of the cutline.Who’s notChase Elliott. A horrible turn of events ruined Elliott’s hot start at Martinsville. Whether or not it ruins his entire Round of 8 remains to be seen. An apparent broken axle on the No. 9 Chevrolet put Elliott from running in the top five early in Stage 2 — after starting from the rear, no less — to behind the wall, in last place. His day ruined, Elliott must win one of the next two races to advance to the Championship 4.Kyle Busch. He’s above the cutline, but this seven-race playoff stretch has not been kind to Busch and the No. 18 team. Something seems off with this group. Busch had finally started to move up into the top five midway through the final stage when he was ensnared in a wreck with Aric Almirola — who later said “I’m going to make it hell for him” in reference to Kyle Busch’s race for the championship.BUBBLE WATCH —————CUT-OFF LINE————— 7.Kyle Larson-24 3.Kyle Busch+17 5.Kevin Harvick-14 RankDriverPoints to cutoff 8.Chase Elliott-44center_img 2.Denny Hamlin+24 6.Ryan Blaney-15 Next raceThe Monster Energy Series travels to Texas Motor Speedway for the second race in the Round of 8 at the 1.5-mile facility on Nov. 3 (3 p.m. ET, NBCSN/NBC Sports App, PRN, SiriusXM NASCAR Radio).Who it favorsKevin Harvick. There have been five races at Texas since its repave and reconfiguration, so we’re only looking at the last five races there. And the driver of the No. 4 Stewart-Haas Racing Ford emerges as the clear favorite. He has four top-five finishes and five top 10s during that stretch, with an average finish of 3.2. He’s the favorite next weekend.Who it hurtsKyle Larson. Texas has been a total boom-or-bust for the 27-year-old since 2017. Larson has one runner-up finish, another fifth-place finish … and then three finishes of 36th or worse due to wrecks. Truth be told, most of the playoff drivers have been good at Texas. Larson’s average finish of 23.8 is easily the worst, but he’s also capable of winning the race outright. 1.Martin Truex Jr.WIN 4.Joey Logano+14last_img read more
