Yorkshire’s Schmidt equals record to lead Brabazon

first_img Tags: Alwoodley Golf Club, Brabazon Trophy Yorkshire teenager Ben Schmidt leads the international field in the Brabazon Trophy by three after shooting a record-equalling 64 at Alwoodley Golf Club, Leeds, today.The 16-year-old from Rotherham Golf Club is nine-under after 36 holes of the English Men’s Open Amateur Stroke Play.Meanwhile, first round leader Charlie Strickland (Ham Manor) scrambled his way to 70 today and stayed well in touch in second place. A further shot back and sharing third place on five-under are England’s David Langley and Jake Hapgood of Wales.Schmidt’s bogey free round of seven-under is his lowest score in competition and he said: “It all came together today, right from the first tee shot.” That set up the first of three consecutive birdies, which were followed by two more before the turn.“Then it was just about not making mistakes on the back nine. I hit good tee shots and iron shots, kept the ball in play and holed a few putts when you don’t expect it. That’s when you get a good score,” he said.And as for leading the Brabazon on his first appearance in the championship? “It’s nice,” said Schmidt, a member of the England boys’ squad. “But I’ve got to go away and try not to think about it. My first goal was to make the cut, because this is a big men’s event, and I’ve done that quite easily, which is good.“Now I’ve got the weekend and two more rounds, so I’ve got to restart, not think about leading, but just do what I’ve been doing for the past two days and play good golf.”Tomorrow, he’ll be paired with Strickland who added one under 70 to his opening 66. “Scrappy was the word,” he commented. “My short game saved me all day. But I’m in a good spot and I would have taken one or two under before I went out, so I’m pleased with it.”David Langley raced into a share of third place after covering the first 10 holes in seven-under. He started birdie, eagle, dropped a shot on the fourth, and then had five consecutive birdies. The rest of the back nine proved tougher, but he eventually signed for four-under 67 – and put himself right in contention.Langley, an England A squad player from Castle Royle in BB&O, said: “It was a good day’s work!”Jake Hapgood was also on the birdie train, with four in a row from the fifth thanks to good mid and long-range putts. He reached the turn in three under and parred home to hold on. “On the back nine my short game saved me, there was a lot of scrambling. But I finished strongly and when you make pars on all those holes it’s a bit of a bonus.”Scotland’s Jamie Stewart was another player who flew round the front nine, reaching the turn in seven-under 29 with the help of two eagles. Once again the back nine proved testing in the wind, but he completed his round in 65, which propelled him 32 places up the leaderboard.“It was a good round and it was nice to find a little bit of form because I’ve been struggling the last few weeks,” said Stewart, who was runner-up in the 2018 Scottish Amateur.He shares fifth place with Yorkshire’s Charlie Thornton (Fulford), who added 67 to his opening 71.After today’s round the field was cut to the leading 60 players and ties. A total of 64 will return to play the final 36 holes over the weekend.Click here for full scoresImage copyright Leaderboard Photography 31 May 2019 Yorkshire’s Schmidt equals record to lead Brabazon last_img read more

Women and Girls’ Golf Week 2019 was a soaring success

first_img3 Sep 2019 Women and Girls’ Golf Week 2019 was a soaring success England Golf is delighted to announce that the second staging of the Women and Girls’ Golf Week has proved to be an outstanding success, both from a social media perspective and in terms of raising engagement and participation at club level.The recent awareness week, timed to coincide with the AIG Women’s British Open at Woburn, generated over 12 million Twitter impressions through its #WhyIGolf hashtag, surpassing the number generated during the 2018 campaign.Women and Girls’ Golf Week was again delivered by England Golf, Scottish Golf, Wales Golf and The Irish Ladies Golf Union, and was designed to unite the industry and promote and grow women and girls’ golf. The R&A, the European Tour, the Ladies European Tour, The Professional Golfers’ Association and the Golf Foundation were also among the bodies supporting the activity.The campaign told stories of women and girls involved in different areas of the sport, celebrating their successes and challenging perceptions. Online content featured a theme for each day, including careers, volunteers, health, participation and performance.Over 800 people contributed and were involved from across Great Britain and Ireland, as well as further afield in Australia, Canada, the USA and throughout Europe, most notably in Germany and The Netherlands. Campaign video content generated over 274,000 views, while the most popular day for engagement was the one dedicated to health and wellbeing.The campaign was highlighted on Sky Sports during the AIG Women’s British Open, while other notable supporters included broadcasters Sarah Stirk and Naga Munchetty, and leading Tour professionals such as Georgia Hall, Catriona Matthew and Lexi Thompson.Nick Pink, chief executive at England Golf, said: “Women and Girls’ Golf Week again proved a great success online, as we all look to inspire more females into the sport at all levels.“From an England perspective, we saw a rise in the number of clubs engaged in the week – both from a supporting standpoint and those who ran specific women and girls’ activity during the week.”Clubs across the home nations were heavily involved, promoting participation activities they were running for women and girls.At Exeter Golf and Country Club in the south-west, a series of #WhyIGolf social media video clips raised engagement, while a dedicated #WhyIGolf event was led by the club’s up-and-coming junior girl members. Placing an emphasis on fun in a non-competitive and relaxed format, it saw 26% of participants take out an academy membership.Darren Everett, director of golf at Exeter who oversees a 160-strong female membership, said: “The young girls were brilliant and acted almost like ambassadors for us. We have a slightly ageing membership so for the girls to help encourage more women to enjoy golf here – perhaps to meet new friends or achieve a release from work – is great.“We work hard at promoting female and family golf and our #WhyIGolf event was another example.”Meantime, at Ingestre Park Golf Club in Stafford, 36 girls have been involved in the club’s Girls Golf Rocks programme over the last two years and they recently held a fun-filled girls camp together with Whittington Heath Golf Club.Women and Girls’ Golf Week helped the club to place renewed focus on their activity, achieving strong early interest for their forthcoming We Love Golf taster sessions for women and girls in conjunction with The PGA.Ben Smith, assistant professional at Ingestre Park, said: “We have been pushing women and girls’ golf strongly and Women and Girls’ Golf Week sat nicely for us to promote what we have coming up.”The R&A’s Women in Golf Charter was launched last year with the aim of inspiring an industry-wide commitment to a more inclusive culture, enabling women and girls to flourish and reach their potential at all levels of the sport.This year’s Women and Girls’ Golf Week also built on the first ever Golf and Health Week held in April, which again saw various golfing bodies working collaboratively to highlight the sport’s health benefits and reach an audience of over 20 million on social media.Women and Girls’ Golf Week also drew attention to the 2019 Solheim Cup, the match between the top women professionals of Europe and the USA, which takes place at Gleneagles next week.Read the stories featured in Why I Golf here; www.englandgolf.org/whyigolf Tags: Women and girls’ golf, Women and Girls’ Golf Weeklast_img read more

City League Roundup…1989 Perry state champs honored

first_imgAllderdice has not won a game since late in the 2007 season, when they finished with a 7-5 record.“I talk to my players and encourage them,” said Hazlett. “I tell them to pick their heads up and just play the game. It was obviously hard for them to have gone through some of the adversity that they have in the past, especially going 0-9 last season. We are a young team and it won’t be long before we get ourselves back together again.”Along with Pfleger’s rushing touchdown, he also passed for one other score—a seven-yard pass to Duke Mulhilll in the first quarter. Marlon Brown led the Dragons on offense, finishing with 17 carries for 100 yards on the ground. 20TH ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION—Members of the Perry 1989 State Championship team that upset heavily favored Berwick 20-8 to win the Class AAA title, pose for a photo on the sideline at Cupples Stadium Oct. 15. SHUTOUT—The Perry “D” swarms all over Ronald Tyler of Westinghouse. The talented defensive unit didn’t allow the Bulldogs a single point all evening. “It was a good win,” said Allderdice head coach Jerry Hazlett. “It should’ve never even gotten to that point. We should have closed it out a long time ago, which shows you the effort on Langley’s part.”center_img The winning points came off of the legs of Allderdice (1-6, 1-5) quarterback Mike Pfleger—literally. He scored on a four-yard run in triple overtime and tacked on the extra point to bury conference opponent Langley (0-6, 0-6) by the final count of 33-32. Langley, however, was not going down without a fight. Quarterback Jaquan Green completed 17 of 39 passes for 231 yards with 5 touchdowns and no interceptions. They fought back from a 14-0 deficit to get an opportunity to send it to overtime. That effort was capped off by a 30-yard touchdown pass from Green to Louis Helms with 2:09 left in regulation. Langley scored first in the third overtime on a 2-yard Helms pass from Green, but Pfleger responded with a touchdown and extra point to win the game.Next week, watch the two first place teams in Oliver and Brashear do battle at Cupples Stadium on Saturday afternoon. Kickoff is scheduled for 12 p.m.Other games:Perry (5-2, 5-2) 31, Westinghouse (1-6, 1-5) 0On an evening when the 1989 AAA state championship team was honored with a special ceremony, Richard Lowry, who leads the City League in rushing, ran for 144 yards and a touchdown to help Perry shut out Westinghouse, 31-0. Aaron Patterson ran for 106 yards and two touchdowns, and Greg McGhee passed and ran for scores for the Commodores.Oliver 14 (5-1, 5-1), Carrick 12 (2-5, 2-4)Carrick almost pulled off another upset as they gave first place Oliver a game that would go down to the wire. Both teams scored in the first quarter. For Carrick, quarterback Ryan Roeper took the ball in for a score from nine yards out. Also, Oliver’s Shakil Brown scored on a five-yard run. Both two-point conversion runs failed.In the second quarter, Oliver’s Phillip Upsher-Ferguson scored on a 20-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Dante Jeter. The winning points would come on the following two-point conversion by Martise Smith.Carrick would score again in the third quarter on a 16-yard run by Rasheed McKamey but the two-point conversion failed which rounded out the scoring.Brashear 20 (6-1, 6-1), Peabody (3-4, 3-3) 6Peabody is right in the toughest part of their schedule. They could not register a win in bad weather as Brashear had established a game plan and stuck to it.The game plan would be executed through its running attack.Senior tailback Bruce Patterson carried the ball 24 times for 100 yards to lead his team on offense. He was the only player in the game who had over 100 yards of individual offense.“The weather was ugly so we had decided that we were going to keep it on the ground,” said Brashear head coach Rick Murphy. “We understood that they also had a weapon in the tailback so we wanted our defense to contain him and force them to pass.”For Peabody, Shannon Binion scored on a 74-yard pass from quarterback DeVaughn Jemison in the second quarter.Patterson scored on a 14-yard touchdown to add to his 100-yard game. Brashear also scored on a 24-yard touchdown pass from Henri Chatman to Ricky Gay.

Crunch Time…Can the Steelers seal the deal against Eli, Giants?

first_imgby Aubrey BruceAfter the Pittsburgh Steelers defense manhandled the Washington Redskins and their All-World rookie phenom, the multi-talented Robert Griffin III or RGIII as he is more commonly known, they seem to be back in the saddle again. Now a few of the “chicken hawks” have again sanctified their Heinz Field prayer beads and re-ordained the Steelers defense, gray hair and all as the ones. ANOTHER HUNDRED YARD GAME—Steelers running back Jonathan Dwyer (27), left, gets a handoff by quarterback Ben Roethlisberger (7) in the third quarter Oct. 28, in Pittsburgh. (AP Photo/Don Wright) Well Tonto say; “not so fast Keemosabe, the drought still not over here in the middle of the AFC North desert.”Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin had this to say about the victory at his weekly news conference on Tuesday; “[It was] our most complete performance to this point this year; obviously not perfect but we played sixty minutes in all three phases. There were errors [but] there were a lot of positives, contributions from a lot of people just a great overall team effort one that I hope we can build upon moving forward. With the challenges that await us this week hopefully it’s a good spring board for us as we continue to grow and work and prepare on a day to day basis with the men that were working with.”I agree with Tomlin that the win was Pittsburgh’s most complete and decisive win this year but there are a few components that are a bit troubling to me. Yeah, they kept RGIII in the pocket and tightened up their coverage but this week they have to face Mr. “pocket passer” himself, NY Giants QB Eli Manning. Senator I know Eli Manning. RGIII is no Eli Manning. The front three of the Black and Gold, Brett Keisel, Casey Hampton and Ziggy Hood accounted for 2 tackles, 4 assists and nary sack, not one. The front three of the Black and Gold had better get some serious pressure on Manning forcing him into multiple “hot” reads and check downs because if they don’t force him to alter his play selection, the Steelers secondary are going to be in a “hot mess” you diggg….. Furthermore safety Ryan Clarke had four tackles and three assists, not a good sign especially when any and all of your safety patrols better be in cover two or manned up on the slot receiver or Giants running back Ahmad Bradshaw and/or the alternate G-man running back or tight end exiting the backfield or the Giants line of scrimmage.The Pittsburgh Steelers have to win this game not just to put them in a position to win the AFC North but to be postured for an extra week of “R&R” when the postseason tier is decided. That extra time off is something that they will sorely need being as though their bye week was so long ago it seems like it was part of the preseason.The Steelers next trifecta of competition is; at the NY Giants, facing the KC Chiefs and the B-More Ravens both at Heinz Field. If the Steelers can miraculously win all three contests and Baltimore in light of their numerous injuries happens to succumb to the Cleveland “Brownies” in Cleveland, then it is going to get “funkified” over in the North Shore house that the “Chief” built. The Ravens at that point and time will be talking to themselves saying; “it’s like a jungle sometimes it makes me wonder how I keep from going under.” That being said the Ravens have to face Pittsburgh, Cleveland and the Oakland Raiders at M&T Bank stadium in Baltimore. Theoretically the “Dirty Birds” could win all three games so the Steelers had better keep their fingers on the pulse of the division because one slip up could, oh well you get the picture.A win against the NY Giants is a must win because this is only the second real test that the Steelers have faced since facing Eli Manning’s sibling Peyton earlier this season. The elder Manning made them look a bit silly when they traveled to Denver to face him for the first game of the 2012 campaign. They are again facing a quality offense that includes a premier quarterback, running back and a decent corps of wide outs.The Steelers seemingly played 60 minutes of when they defeated the Redskins. To beat the talented Giants with their ferocious defensive front four and “high octane” offense the Steelers are going to have to play sixty one minutes in order to “seal the deal.”(Aubrey Bruce can be reached at: abruce@newpittsburghcourier.com or 412.583.6741.

Jay Z sells his portion of Brooklyn Nets

first_imgIn case you have not yet realized, there is no stopping Mr. Shawn Carter in his attempt to dominate every aspect of the entertainment industry. After much speculation that Jay Z would be forced to sell his 0.067 share of ownership in the Brooklyn Nets to pursue his Roc Nation Sports Agency, the music mogul decided Jason Kidd was the perfect person to sell his small stake to.A source shared with the New York Post,“Other owners want to give Jason a part ownership of the team, and urged Jay to sell his shares to him.”The deal comes months after Jay started his Roc Nation sports agency. By selling his share of ownership, Mr. Carter has successfully avoided the ‘conflict of interest’ talk he was bound to hear due to his personal and professional investments. Roc Nation has signed New York Yankee Robinson Cano, Oklahoma City Thunder’s very own Kevin Durant and WNBA newcomer Skylar Diggins.Kidd has signed on as the coach of the Brooklyn Nets for this forthcoming season. Unlike Jay Z, Kidd’s ownership will not be seen as a conflict of interest.What can we say? Jay knew about these new rules!for more visit:theurbandaily.comlast_img read more

NFL fines Steelers coach Mike Tomlin $100,000

first_imgIn this Nov. 28, 2013 file photo, Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin watches his players warm up before an NFL football game against the Baltimore Ravens, in Baltimore. Tomlin says he’s embarrassed about his unintentional but inexcusable foray onto the field in last Thursday night’s loss to Baltimore. (AP Photo/Gail Burton, File)PITTSBURGH (AP) – Here’s another adjective Pittsburgh Steelers coach Mike Tomlin can call his ill-timed two-step onto the field last Thursday night against Baltimore.Expensive.The NFL fined Tomlin $100,000 on Wednesday for interfering with Baltimore’s Jacoby Jones on a kickoff return in the third quarter of a 22-20 loss to the Ravens on Thanksgiving night.The fine is the second-highest ever levied by the league on a head coach, behind only the $500,000 the NFL docked New England’s Bill Belichick in 2007 for spying on an opponent’s defensive signals.There is also the chance the Steelers have a draft pick taken away “because the conduct affected a play on the field.” Though he was not penalized, the league said the Steelers should have been flagged 15 yards for unsportsmanlike conduct.All that from what Tomlin called an “embarrassing, inexcusable” case of being “mesmerized” while standing in a restricted area that separates the sideline from the playing field and staring at the video board during Jones’ 73-yard return.Jones had to swerve to avoid running into the coach and was tackled during a return that might have gone for a touchdown if not for the obstruction. Tomlin briefly stepped onto the field before he jumped back.Tomlin insists the “blunder” was not intentional but has no plans to appeal the ruling.“I apologize for causing negative attention to the Pittsburgh Steelers organization,” Tomlin said in a statement Wednesday. “I accept the penalty that I received. I will no longer address this issue as I am preparing for an important game this Sunday against the Miami Dolphins.”Jones didn’t blame Tomlin for his own inability to score on the return, but his teammates believe the move put the coach and the league in a difficult position.“I’m not going to lie, it’s tough,” Baltimore wide receiver Torrey Smith said. “I can’t say he did it on purpose because I don’t know what he was thinking. It definitely sends a message across the league. He stepped across the line, which definitely threw it off.”Tomlin said he was following his normal routine on the play and said standing on the 6-foot wide strip is common practice.New York Giants coach Tom Coughlin didn’t disagree. Coughlin drew a 15-yard flag during the preseason for stepping onto the field during a field goal attempt.“You find yourself sometimes running down the sideline on the white, but nevertheless, you’re not even supposed to be even on the white because the officials have to have access there,” Coughlin said. “That is a most difficult thing to absorb.”Tomlin’s players leapt to his defense in the immediate aftermath, and safety Ryan Clark allowed he is “always on the field.” The 12-year veteran, however, is hardly surprised the NFL is considering taking an extra step of stripping the Steelers of a draft pick.“It’s not supposed to be fair,” Clark said. “It’s Roger Goodell, so when has he been fair?”Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger doesn’t believe Tomlin’s near-trip will serve as a distraction for Pittsburgh (5-7), which remains in the playoff hunt as December begins despite an 0-4 start.“If anything, guys joke about it more,” Roethlisberger said. “They’re the ones pulling up the pictures online and joking with coach about something. If anything maybe it’s a light-hearted fun thing.”The league will not determine whether to take a pick away from Pittsburgh until after the draft order has been set. It would be an unprecedented move for a coach getting involved during a live play.The NFL fined the New York Jets $100,000 in 2010 when cameras caught strength and conditioning coach Sal Alosi tripping a Miami player on the sideline. Alosi was suspended by the Jets and eventually resigned after the season.Tomlin is hardly in danger of losing his job, and said Tuesday he had not spoken to team owners Dan and Art Rooney II about the situation.“I would imagine if the Rooneys thought that I was capable of that or they thought my intentions were that, I wouldn’t be sitting at this table talking to you guys,” he said.Tomlin makes $5.25 million a season and the fine constitutes less than 2 percent of his annual salary. He can absorb the relatively small financial hit. He’s far more concerned about the uncomfortable position he put the league and the Steelers in after failing to get out of the way with any sense of urgency.last_img read more
