(AP Photo/Peter Morrison)CARNOUSTIE, Scotland — Jordan Spieth has a share of the lead in the British Open and a big edge in experience. Still only 24, he already has won three majors and his name is the last one etched on the base of the silver claret jug.One name in the mix makes it all feel so new.ADVERTISEMENT But he’s Tiger Woods, and it felt like that again to thousands of fans who crammed along the fairways and beind the greens as Woods ran off three straight birdies around the turn and then two-putted for birdie on the par-5 14th to work his way into a tie for the lead, even if that lasted for only 20 minutes.“I’ve shown that I’ve been there close enough with a chance to win this year,” Woods said. “Given what happened the last few years, I didn’t know if that would ever happen again. But here I am with a chance coming Sunday in a major championship. It’s going to be fun.”It was every bit of that on Saturday, a rare day when Carnoustie had little defense.Justin Rose, who made the cut on the number with a birdie on his final hole, matched the Carnoustie record for the Open with a 64. Spieth set the tone in the afternoon when he decided on the way to the first tee to hit driver on the 396-yard hole. He sent it bouncing and rolling along the firm turf, down a hill and onto the green to about 10 feet away for an eagle.Moments later, Woods began his charge to get into contention at a major for the first time in five years.ADVERTISEMENT It never stopped. Seven players had a share of the lead at one point. Kisner, who started the third round tied for the lead, was never far away but had to work hard to stay there. He made a tough par save on the 17th, and then got up-and-down from behind the 18th green for a 68.Schauffele, the PGA Tour rookie of the year last season, holed a 30-foot putt from behind the 18th green for a 67.They were at 9-under 204.“We’ve got pretty much a new tournament tomorrow,” Spieth said.A dozen players were separated by four shots, which is nothing considering that the last two British Open champions at Carnoustie rallied from 10 shots (Paul Lawrie) and six shots (Padraig Harrington) on the final day.The wind is expected to be the strongest it has been all week. And then there’s the presence of Woods, playing in the third-to-last group.Woods started quietly enough with a few birdies through eight holes. He started his move with a 40-foot birdie putt on No. 9, followed with short birdie putts on the next two holes and with a two-putt birdie on the par-5 14th, he put his name atop the leaderboard.It was there for only 20 minutes. But it was there.A bogey on the 16th and a par save from short of the Barry Burn on the 18th gave him a 66. He figured it would at least keep him in range. He wound up as close to the lead as he has been in a major since he was two behind at Muirfield in the 2013 British Open.“I’m right there,” he said. “I’ve got a chance at this, which is great.” Report: Disney dropping the ‘Fox’ from movie studio names Lacson: Calamity fund cut; where did P4 billion go? Putin’s, Xi’s ruler-for-life moves pose challenges to West And he has company.Kevin Chappell, who spent most of his round watching Spieth put on a show, birdied the 18th for a 67 and was two shots behind.Francesco Molinari had a 66 and will play in the third-to-last group with Woods. They were last together three weeks ago when Woods presented him the trophy at the Quicken Loans National after Molinari shot 62 for an eight-shot victory.Twelve players were separated by four shots, a group that includes Rory McIlroy, Tommy Fleetwood and Zach Johnson. They all dropped shots on a day when there was no time to be going backward. McIlroy was within two shots of the lead until bogeys on two of his last three holes for a 70 left him four behind.Johnson, staying in the same house as Kisner, Spieth and four other Americans, hooked his approach on No. 12 and three-putted for a double bogey. He shot 72 and was in the group four behind. Joining them was Tommy Fleetwood, who dropped three shots in two holes on the back nine on his way to a 71.Of the five players separated by three shots, only Spieth has experience winning a major. He will try to become the first player since Padraig Harrington in 2008 to win golf’s oldest championship in consecutive years.His move started with a sudden decision.The opening hole is 396 yards on the card, with the fairway getting narrow between two bunkers. Spieth, who spent Saturday morning watching the Open on television, asked caddie Michael Greller on the practice range, “Do we like driver?”Greller told him no. Play short and it’s a wedge to a front pin, easy birdie chance.Spieth walked to the tee with coach Cameron McCormick and asked him, “How about I just send it on No. 1?” MOST READ “I felt good about the range session. And he’s like, ‘I put my chips behind anything you decide, always.’ And that kind of gave me that little extra boost,” Spieth said.He stuffed his approach to 2 feet on No. 4 and made two short birdie putts until he came to the par-3 16th, when his 5-iron settled 12 feet away for his longest putt of the day.This is the 16th time he has been in at least a share of the lead in the majors in the five years he has been playing them on a regular basis. And it’s the first time he has had to look over his shoulder at Woods.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew Trump assembles a made-for-TV impeachment defense team ‘High crimes and misdemeanors’: Trump impeachment trial begins LATEST STORIES In fight vs corruption, Duterte now points to Ayala, MVP companies as ‘big fish’last_img read more

first_img— delivery truck held upGunmen on Wednesday carried out brazen robberies on two West Bank Demerara business places within a 24-hour period. According to reports, the first robbery was committed at Murphy’s Shop in Murphy Street, Good Intent Village, where Massy delivery workers were held up at gun point and robbed by a lone gunman.Guyana Times was told this attack occurred during afternoon hours when the proprietor’s daughter and niece were about to receive goods from the Massy delivery truck.The Murphy Street business where the delivery truck was reportedly robbedThe proprietor of the shop related that she was not at home at the time of the robbery, but related that she is very upset over the entire ordeal. The woman also pointed out that the business is well secured and that the gunman was unable to steal from the shop. However, persons in the area are said to be afraid of going there.According to reports, the gunman carted off with, not only the personal belongings of delivery truck workers but, the company’s (Massy’s) money as well. While in her distress, the owner of the Murphy Street shop appealed to would-be bandits to think twice before entering a life of crime.“I would tell them don’t even think about it, think twice, they are jobs out there, at different levels you can get, people need people to clean and weed their yard [or] help them to do something, you might not be the Minister or the President but there are jobs,” she noted.Meanwhile, the second robbery, which was initially reported by Guyana Times, occurred around 21:10h, when two gunmen stormed a Sisters Village roadside shop and bar.This publication was told that the two bandits forced several persons to lie face down while they relived them of their belongings. The bandits reportedly approached the shop posing as customers, but quickly carried out the robbery.One victim of the attack, who preferred to remain anonymous, told this newspaper that he was at the time purchasing phone cards, when the bandits came up, whipped out a hand gun, forced him to the ground, and made off with his mobile phone and money.Guyana Times was also informed that as one of the gunmen held up persons in the shop, the other reportedly ransacked the home of the shop’s owner. This publication understands the Police are closely pursuing one of the prime suspects in the reported West Bank attacks, while other individuals were questioned.It is not clear if both attacks were related, but police are continuing their investigations.last_img read more

first_imgVice President Joseph N. Boakai has pledged to help end violence against women and children and ensure that they enjoy equal rights in the Liberian society.Speaking on Wednesday during a program held by the Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity Incorporated near Fish Market in Monrovia, he called on Liberian men to recognize women as major contributors in society, declaring that “dehumanizing women is not part of Liberian culture.”“We the men in Liberia want to sincerely apologize for the misconduct against women, and I am calling on men to realize that women comprise 50% of our society, and are also our partners,” the Vice President said.Liberian men must make the commitment to protect their female counterparts by doing away with gender based violence, he admonished.The president of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity Incorporated, T. Nelson Williams, said the purpose of the gathering and the walk was to inform the world and Liberians that gender based violence and rape is not necessary in Liberia.“We the brothers of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, UN Women and Ministry of Gender have planned to speak out against this hideous crime that is committed against young girls and women in this country,” Mr. Williams said.He said, last week, the brothers of Alpha Phi Alpha and Servants of All Prayers Assembly worked together in various ways to engage and inform men about the need to end violence against women.“We also visited the prison compound in Bomi and the Monrovia Central Prison because they need to be counseled before coming out. We realized that when men commit these crimes and go to prison, if they are not rehabilitated, they come out and continue to commit these crimes. For the brothers, this is 365 Days of Activism, not just the 16 Days of Activism,” he added.National program manager of UN Women, Ghoma Karloweah, called on the legislature to speedily pass the Domestic Violence Bill into law. “We need to mobilize more people, including lawmakers, to work to pass the Domestic Violence Bill into law to be able to protect our sisters, daughters and mothers,” she said.
