Phil eyes another record at site of first Tour win

first_imgPhil Mickelson made history 30 years ago in Tucson, becoming one of seven amateurs to win a PGA Tour event since 1940. Lefty is back in Arizona this weekend and he has a chance to stand alone in the record book. A winner in his first two PGA Tour Champions starts, Mickelson could become the first player to win his first three starts on a PGA Tour-sanctioned tour this weekend in the Cologuard Classic at Tucson National. “I think it’s going to be a tough challenge for me here because the course allows you to play it a lot of different ways,” Mickelson said Thursday. “Although I’m going to play it pretty aggressively, I’m going to bring in a lot of trouble, too. If I can kind of eliminate some of the big misses, I think I’m going to make a lot of birdies.” Mickelson had no trouble at Tucson National and TPC Starr Pass in 1991, overcoming a triple bogey in the final round to win the Northern Telecom Open as a 20-year-old amateur. The former Arizona State player is still the last amateur to win a PGA Tour event. Mickelson returns to the desert with a chance to make it 3 for 3 on the senior tour. He won at Ozarks National in Missouri last August in his first start after turning 50 and followed that up with a win at the Country Club of Virginia in October. Full-field tee times from the Cologuard Classic Should he win in Tucson, the quest to make more history might have to wait a while. The five-time major champion still believes he can compete on the PGA Tour and his upcoming schedule includes The Players Championship, Honda Classic, Masters and possibly the Valero Texas Open. Mickelson, who has 44 career PGA Tour wins, has made four cuts in eight events this 2021 season. “I haven’t really looked at Champions Tour schedule,” he said. “I want to start playing on the regular tour with a little bit less stress. I’ve been really hard on myself when I make some mistakes and I’ve got to kind of ease up and play a little bit more free and a little bit lighter. If I can do that, I think I can shoot some pretty good scores out there.” Mickelson will have to put up some low numbers on Tucson National’s Catalina Course with a deep field set to tee it up starting Friday. Schwab Cup money leader Bernhard Langer is still going strong at 63 and is the defending champion after coming from four strokes back to win last year. Four-time major champion Ernie Els is second in the points standings. Major champions Davis Love III and Mike Weir also are in the field, as is former University of Arizona player Jim Furyk, who won his first two senior starts last year. “The guys are still competitive and they are still hungry, and that’s what we all enjoy,” Furyk said. “We enjoy the competition and maybe I don’t have to hit 320 yards anymore to do so. I’m enjoying it.” They’re all vying to win the unique Conquistador helmet awarded to the winner in Tucson. Mickelson first put the trophy on his head after winning as an amateur — he cut himself in the process — and did it twice more after consecutive wins in 1995-96. “It looks cool. I’ve got three of them that are wanting a fourth, they want a nice even number,” he said. “They want a foursome. They don’t like to go out as three, they’re always looking for a fourth, so that would be a nice fit.” So would doing something no other golfer has done.last_img read more

Banks, business partners cut Trump Org ties after Capitol attacks

first_imgPresident Donald Trump (Getty)President Donald Trump’s family business is facing mounting challenges after last week’s violent attack in Washington, D.C., as banks, business partners and political allies seek to distance themselves from the president.New York City said it is “reviewing whether legal grounds exist” to exit its business deals with the Trump Organization, the Washington Post reported. The Trump name is on the carousel and two ice-skating rinks in Central Park, as well as the Ferry Point golf course in the Bronx.A spokeswoman for Mayor Bill de Blasio said the city is reviewing its business relationships after a mob of Trump supporters stormed the U.S. Capitol.The Trump Organization removed the president’s name from the two ice-skating rinks in 2019, though it did not provide an explanation for the change.ADVERTISEMENTThe fallout from Wednesday’s mob attack is also affecting Trump personally: Signature Bank said on Monday that it would close Trump’s personal bank accounts, which held about $5.3 million, the New York Times reported. In a statement, the bank also called for Trump’s resignation.Trump Organization also faces pressure from its longtime lender Deutsche Bank, which has said it will not do business with the president in the future. The lender holds about $340 million of the firm’s debt.In the wake of last week’s attack, the e-commerce company Shopify shut down online stores tied to the president. On Sunday, PGA of America said it would not allow the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey, to host the 2022 PGA Championship.The commercial brokerage JLL also dropped its involvement to sell Trump’s Washington, D.C., hotel, although it was not clear if that was connected to the events in D.C.Day-to-day operations of the Trump Organization were handed over to his sons Donald Jr. and Eric in 2016, after Donald Trump was ushered into the Oval Office. Since then, the company has mostly been focused on selling its assets.In addition to the financial fallout, the company also faces an investigation by Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance, who is probing Trump and his company for potential crimes. New York Attorney General Letitia James is conducting a civil investigation into Trump’s business, exploring whether it overvalued its assets to secure financing and tax breaks.[Washington Post, NYT]  — Keith Larsen This content is for subscribers only.Subscribe Nowlast_img read more

Ministers to cut funds for satellite navigation project

first_imgBut finance ministers plan to grant only 100 million euro, or about 3% of the public funds requested, insisting that no more can be released until the Commission provides more information about its plan. They will give the institution until December 2000 to supply details of the additional funding needed and exactly what technical specifications the programme would entail.“A number of member states are not yet willing to hand over the money for a formal project,” said an EU diplomat “We need to clarify the technical, organisational and financial aspects further before we make any real decisions on whether to fund it.”Currently, the American and Russian military own and control the only satellites which transmit signals for navigation, although they do offer a second, less reliable set of signals for civilian users such as commercial airlines.Kinnock has repeatedly argued in favour of an independent European-based system to both avoid dependence on the US and Russia, and to ensure European firms get a slice of what is expected to become a 50-billion-euro-a-year global market over the next few years.“If you do not have a role in the satellite signal and in the technology, then you are going to be left behind in trying to compete in this market,” said one Commission official.Germany, which has made the programme a key priority of its presidency, is confident that transport ministers will sign up to a general statement of support for the initiative at their meeting next Thursday (17 June). “We want to give the Commission the security to go ahead with this,” said one official. They will insist on holding back the rest of the money until the Commission produces a detailed blueprint fleshing out its plans.Acting Transport Commissioner Neil Kinnock has repeatedly sought the member states’ support for his proposal to deploy European satellites in space to help aeroplanes, trucks and ships pinpoint exactly where they are. The Galileo project aims to boost safety and fuel efficiency by helping transport operators to select the fastest routes.Kinnock has called for 2.2-2.9 billion euro from the public and private sectors for the first phase of the project from 2000-2008, and has suggested that about h1 billion of this would come from private companies.last_img read more
