It’s not often in college sports that a team gets to return to the scene of its greatest failure for a shot at redemption.But that’s exactly the opportunity the No. 17 USC men’s golf team got this week at the NCAA championship at Karsten Creek Golf Club in Stillwater, Okla.The Trojans placed last in a field of 15 at the same course in September, finishing 70 strokes out of the lead at the Ping/Golfweek Preview.Summer Trojan file photoUSC’s performance this week, while much improved, left the team six shots short of qualifying for the match play portion of the tournament and ended its season with a tie for 12th at 31-over-par (303-289-303).“It was a super challenging golf course,” USC coach Chris Zambri said. “They put a huge premium on driving the ball in the fairways. It was something we knew we had to work on throughout the year. We didn’t accomplish what we wanted to accomplish, which certainly was to get to the match play.”No. 8 Augusta State claimed its second straight national championship by defeating in-state rival No. 14 Georgia 3-2 in the match play final. LSU’s John Peterson won the individual title with a 5-under-par week.The Trojans’ improved play at Karsten Creek demonstrated their growth over the season. After failing to post a top-three finish in the year’s first six events, USC finished in the top-three in all five of its tournaments leading up the national championship. The Trojans also captured the program’s first Pac-10 team title since 2007.“We had that Pac-10 victory and we’ve been playing absolutely solid golf for the last three months,” junior Steve Lim said.Freshman Jeffrey Kang led the Trojans on the week with a tie for 20th individually, posting rounds of 72-73-75 to finish at 4-over-par for the tournament.“He did most everything pretty well,” Zambri said. “He bogeyed the last two holes or he could have had a top-15 finish, which would have been pretty special for a first year kid. But in the end he had a great performance for us.”Lim, the team’s most experienced player, recovered from a disappointing opening round 78 to post 72-75 and finish in a tie for 56th at 9-over-par.“It was championship time: You have to play well, but I wasn’t able to do it,” Lim said. “I actually played quite well the last two rounds. I turned my game around, but a little too late after a bad start.”Pac-10 individual champion, sophomore Martin Trainer, had posted four straight top-seven finishes coming into the event. He struggled in Oklahoma, however, shooting 75-75-76 and tying for 66th at 10-over-par.“I didn’t really play well the entire tournament to tell you the truth,” Trainer said. “I kind of struggled a lot with my ball striking. It was just a tough, tough course and we really needed to play well to make it and we just didn’t get it done.”Sophomore T.J. Vogel, a freshman All-American a season ago, finished a disappointing year with his worst score of the campaign — a final round 82 that included nine bogeys and two double bogeys. His total of 17-over-par (78-73 in the opening two rounds) earned him a tie for 113th.“I know he’s going to turn it around,” Zambri said about Vogel’s prospects for next season.Sophomore Sam Smith was disqualified from individual contention after signing for an incorrect score after his first round. His second round 71 was a big part of USC’s turnaround day, but he could only muster a 77 in the final round.After the tournament, Zambri and his players decided to focus on the team’s progress over the last three months and what promises to be an exciting 2011-2012 season.The incoming freshman — top-ranked junior golfer Anthony Paolucci and Daniel Lee — will add depth to the squad, while the returning Trojans have committed to a strenuous summer schedule of amateur golf events.“I feel like we’re going to be great next year,” Zambri said. “It’s not just that we’ve got five kids coming back that were starters, but some of them are playing the best golf they’ve ever played and really turned a big corner within the last couple months. If you throw in our two incoming freshman, one of which is the No. 1 player in the country, I think we’re going to have a fabulous year.”

Guardiola will hope England forward Raheem Sterling can maintain his prolific form at Bournemouth after starting the season with five goals in City’s opening three fixtures.Including the final game of last season, Sterling has scored seven times in his last four City matches.“He’s a better player than when we first arrived but it’s all his credit, desire to be better,” Guardiola said.“Every player is good when understanding what we want to do as a group and after his desire to be better and to improve his skills. I think he has incredible reception to our talks, like when (coach) Mikel (Arteta) or myself talk with him.“That’s nice when they don’t get that feeling like: ‘oh why is he always pushing or criticising me’. That how he improved, he’s open, from the day when we arrive more than three seasons ago and that’s why he is becoming one incredible, exceptional player.“After that his physicality –- so he plays every three days, no injuries, he runs a lot –- he is so strong, so it’s good.”Sterling returns to Bournemouth almost exactly two years to the day after scoring a memorable 96th-minute winning goal for City at the start of a run that saw City win 18 consecutive league games on their way to taking the title.“Sometimes in the beginning of the season there are moments that are important for the mood, rhythm,” Guardiola said.“I remember we came from a draw with Everton and you know what happens with the rumours and talk and the doubts in the minds of the players –- it was so important that goal, definitely.”Share on: WhatsApp ‘He has a special quality’: says Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola of Benjamin MendyManchester, United Kingdom | AFP | Pep Guardiola believes Manchester City left-back Benjamin Mendy can still make a strong contribution for the Premier League champions, but only as long as he wins his on-going fitness battles.The 25-year-old French international has had a disappointing time with last season’s domestic treble winners, starting just 14 league games in 25 months since signing for £52 million ($63.8 million) from Monaco.Mendy has been hampered by a series of injuries but has also been criticised on occasions by City manager Guardiola for his approach to rehabilitating after those problems.However, Guardiola has been encouraged by the manner in which the defender recuperated from his latest knee injury at City’s medical base in Barcelona.“If Benjamin is fit he will have success. He has a special quality,” Guardiola said.“I am happy, but I don’t want to say too much. But I am satisfied because it has been two weeks and his recovery after training has been good. He doesn’t feel any pain and that is good.“These kinds of traumatic injuries are a bit unlucky. One after another. He couldn’t take the rhythm for even half season or a long time. That is a concern but he’s now training good.“The people from Barcelona are telling me that he is working incredible like an animal and hopefully he can maintain that because it is not about one day or one week, it is about every day doing that.”Mendy returned to training with City’s first team squad this week, but is well short of match fitness and won’t feature at Bournemouth on Sunday.– Prolific form –Oleksandr Zinchenko has emerged as City’s first-choice left-back, having successfully converted from a midfield position, while £60-million signing Joao Cancelo, mainly a right-back, can play on the left.
“Trafficking survivors and other experts had previously warned us that our community would attract human traffickers that look to take advantage of the economic impact and influx of visitors produced by the Super Bowl itself,” State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle says. “That is why we joined forces with local, state and federal agencies and community organizations to tackle this threat successfully as one team”.Out of the five human trafficking charges filed against individuals, three of them were filed as federal crimes, while the other two were filed as violations of Florida law, the Miami-Dade State Attorney says. Eight buyers, or “Johns,” as well as 34 accomplices were also arrested on human trafficking charges. Law enforcement officials were prepared to address the human trafficking issue during Super Bowl week, and those efforts paid off.According to the Miami-Dade State Attorney, authorities recovered 20 suspected human trafficking victims during Super Bowl LIV. Four of those victims said they lived in Miami-Dade or Broward counties, although the remainder said they were from other states and four foreign countries.The Miami-Dade State Attorney’s Human Trafficking Task Force, the U.S. Attorney’s Office, the FBI, Homeland Security Investigations, the Miami-Dade, Miami Beach and City of Miami Police Departments, as well as other local law enforcement agencies, the local Super Bowl Host Committee and the Women’s Fund Miami-Dade partnered in order to prevent potential human trafficking activities in the days leading up to and after the big game.

Charles Leclerc, who will be joining Formula One team Ferrari at the end of the ongoing season, has insisted that he is not moving to the team to learn but to challenge.The 20-year-old, however, added that there is a lot to improve but his focus would be on performing after joining the leading F1 team.”I need to deliver – I’m not going to Ferrari to learn. I’ve had a very good season this year where I could learn most of it and next year is to perform where I should be once you are going in a big team,” Sport24 quoted Leclerc, as saying.Ferrari doors always open for Michael Schumacher’s son Mick”I’m not saying I will not learn anything anymore, as I have so much to learn still and I can still improve a lot, but I will be a lot more ready than I was at the beginning.”Reflecting on his position in Ferrari, Leclerc hoped that the team would allow him to race German driver Sebastian Vettel.Ferrari’s Kimi Raikkonen to join Sauber in swap with Charles Leclerc”It’s more or less like this in every team. You have two drivers who start the season on equal status and then at one point in the season, you see some team orders because probably one driver is playing for the championship and the other is not. This is normal, in every team it’s happening. But I believe they will let us race at the beginning of the season,” Leclerc said.advertisementFerrari’s Kimi Raikkonen sets the pace in Singapore ahead of Lewis Hamilton”Experience is always a plus obviously, but if you are good enough on one seat, you are good enough [for a top seat] from the first year you arrive in Formula 1. And if next year I don’t have the results good enough to stay in Ferrari, then it would be normal that I downgrade, but then I don’t deserve a Ferrari seat. This is how I see things,” he added.Ferrari had replaced Kimi Raikkonen with Monacan driver Charles Leclerc after former announced that he would leave the team at the end of the ongoing season.Leclerc has become the youngest driver after late Ricardo Rodriguez to compete for Ferrari.(With ANI inputs)
About the authorFreddie TaylorShare the loveHave your say Lampard delighted with Chelsea academy after Grimsby victoryby Freddie Taylora month agoSend to a friendShare the loveFrank Lampard was delighted with Chelsea’s 7-1 win over Grimsby Town to book their place in the Carabao Cup fourth-round.Academy graduates Reece James, Marc Guehi and Billy Gilmour all started, while back-up Michy Batshuayi took his chance by scoring a double.Lampard said: “It was pleasing on a lot of levels. It was not complete. “But I’m pleased some players who have not been playing so many minutes played, some debuts, and the young lads who came on improved the team which was nice. It’s nice to get that first home win.”I thought Gilmour ran the game from midfield, and Guehi was solid. They’ve been outstanding this year.”And the young subs showed how comfortable they are on the ball. Now the hard work starts to get in the team regularly.”It says a lot about the academy, and nights like this give the opportunity to mix the team up and give them a chance, it gives good recognition to the academy.”
WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump confirmed Thursday that he has picked CNBC contributor Larry Kudlow as his top economic adviser and said the country is in line for a long run of upbeat financial news.The United States “will have many years of Great Economic & Financial Success, with low taxes, unparalleled innovation, fair trade and an ever expanding labour force leading the way!” the president tweeted.Kudlow is succeeding Gary Cohn, a former Goldman Sachs executive, at the White House. Cohn is leaving after a dispute over Trump’s decision to impose tariffs on imported steel and aluminum.Kudlow served in the Reagan administration and has emerged as a leading proponent of tax cuts and a smaller government.Kudlow told The Associated Press on Wednesday that he has accepted the offer and said the U.S. economy was poised to take off after Trump signed $1.5 trillion worth of tax cuts into law.“The economy is starting to roar and we’re going to get more of that,” he said.Kudlow will join an administration in the middle of a tumultuous overhaul, with a number of White House staffers and top officials departing in recent weeks. Trump on Tuesday dumped his secretary of state, Rex Tillerson.Trump seems increasingly determined to tax foreign imports, a policy that Kudlow personally opposes. Kudlow said he is “in accord” with Trump’s agenda and that his team at the White House would help put in place policies set by the president.Trump has promised to reduce the trade imbalance with China and rewrite the North American Free Trade Agreement with Canada and Mexico. Kudlow declined to say what advice he would give the president on trade issues, saying instead that Trump is “a very good negotiator.”Kudlow, 70, has informally advised the Trump administration in the past and he has spoken with the president “at some length in recent days,” so he is ready “to hit the ground running.”Kudlow told CNBC on Wednesday that he was going to Washington on Thursday to meet with Trump. White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said the administration “will keep everyone posted” on when Kudlow officially assumes the job.
Gurugram: Mohammad Sajid and his family that was subjected to physical violence on the day of Holi in Gurugram’s Bhoop Singh area, has now threatened to commit mass suicide over police inaction. The family has accused district police and civil administration of favouring the goons and have claimed that they are being pressured to withdraw the FIR. “The matter is in public domain. Everyone knows how goons have deliberately attacked us in a preplanned manner. Still, the district police are not helping us and allowing alleged attackers and their family members to threaten us to withdraw the FIR,” said Mohamad Akhtar, one of the victims.”They come to our house and abuse our women and girls. If the district administration and police will not help us to bring justice in this case, we will go for mass suicide,” Akhtar said. The victim’s family has submitted a memorandum to Sohna SDM for a speedy trial. “The local police have registered FIR against two youths of our family in a bid to put pressure on us,” Akhtar said. Meanwhile, Gurugram (South) DCP Himanshu Garg said that both the groups were involved in the altercation. The police had arrested 10 persons for attacking the family on March 21. There was a change in events when there was a cross-FIR was filed against the family. This riled the family to an extent that even planned to leave the city till they were stopped in doing so by the top police officials. The Muslim family in Gurugram that was attacked by a mob of 12-20 people on the day of Holi (March 21) with rods and sticks. The family had been living in Gurugram for the past 15 years. According to the FIR registered at Bhondsi police station, the incident took place when Sajid’s relatives had come to visit on Holi. In the complaint, Sajid’s nephew, Dilshad, alleged that they were playing cricket in a vacant plot near the house when some boys confronted them and said, “What are you doing here? Go to Pakistan and play.” When Sajid intervened, one of the two men on the bike slapped him, Dilshad alleged. In the moments that followed, the duo was joined by several others, allegedly armed with sticks, rods and swords, who barged into the family’s home, attacked them and stole their valuables. Videos recorded by the victims show them trying to close the door to the terrace, even as the accused try to break it down. In the video, a group of men can be seen beating up a man with rods and sticks, while another lies in the corner, even as two women plead with the attackers to stop.
