Rupert reigns in Wales

first_img Tags: Pennard, Rupert Kelock, Welsh Seniors Open 30 Jun 2018 Rupert reigns in Wales England’s Rupert Kellock claimed his first big win with a four-shot victory in the Welsh Seniors Open title in Pennard.Kellock (Sunningdale) was the only player to beat par over 54 holes on the hard and bouncy links course near Swansea, finishing on one-under, despite a triple bogey on the third in the final round.His closest challengers were English senior champion Ian Attoe (Worplesdon), fellow Englishman Tim Whittaker (Beaconsfield) and Nigel Evans of Wales.This was Kellock’s first win outside of club competitions but he finished fifth in the British Seniors last year and fourth in the English Seniors this year to show good form coming into the event.“I took the view that the secret to playing Pennard, which I think took everybody two days to work out, was that you are better off being 100 yards from the green in the rough than 150 yards away in the rough so I took driver on most holes,” said the R&A member.“That made it easier than trying to hit rescue clubs off the tee, I just belted it as hard as I could. The greens are quite small so if you could get on them, you were never too far from the pin.“I had some bad experiences in the rough, but on the whole I drove the ball very well today and yesterday.”Wales Golf championships manager David Wilson added, “Congratulations to Rupert, the only player who managed to get under par on a typical links test at Pennard.“The course was in lovely condition, hard and fast, so thanks to everyone at the club for helping to make this championship such a success.”last_img read more

OVERTIME

first_imgBILL NEAL :10—You mark my words, and my words are markable (is markable a word?) Anyway … James Dixon will right the ship and your Pitt Panther Basketball Team will finish strong in the Big East Tournament.:09—New England beats the Ravens. “Quote the Ravens never more.” I picked the 49ers to outcoach the Giants and win a close one. Right result, wrong team! As much as I hate to say it, New England wins another Super Bowl. Brady is on a mission. (However keep in mind I picked the Steelers to beat “Tee-Bow” and Denver … ok so I missed one, shut up!) :08—Speaking of “Your Pittsburgh Steelers,” don’t be surprised to see some major changes on defense. Consider this; James Farrior is 37 years old. He may have to go…leadership and all. Casey Hampton has plugged the middle of that line since 2001 but his recent knee injury and $4.89 million salary may send him packing. Aaron Smith is all broke up, Bryant McFadden may be done here and Larry Foote just might be expendable. The greater part to all this is really about the salary cap. The Steelers are about $25 million over.:07—Soon, very soon a deep voice… well not so deep… well mellow… well not mellow, kind of a soft shout if you know what I mean… anyway the powers that be here at the Courier Office are going to tell me that’s about enough plugs for Chuck Sanders and the Savoy. But for real… for real, fellas have ya’ll been to the Savoy on a Saturday Night and I mean upstairs? Well let me tell you if you have not … make it your next stop!! And do yourself a favor. If you’re married take your lawyer with you mmmmmmaaaannnnn the women are unbelievable. Now what, there it is, Bam!!! Why your lawyer? You can have him call your wife on the spot and say…hello baby…I ain’t never coming home!:06—The Pens are on a five game winning streak … Sidney Crosby who??

I give it 3 basketballs.There are three reasons you’re going to see Red Tails. #1 it’s a damn good movie, I mean corn bread, fried chicken, mac & cheese the way your grandmama made it and candied yams good! #2 it’s our history, the Black History “they” try not to tell. So we have to go see it and support it so they will keep the history coming out of Hollywood. And #3 George Lucas, the Star Wars Legend and mega billionaire is paying for this out of his pockets to the tune to $150 million!! But that’s not the real point. George is going with a “sister” you know. Her name is Mellody Hopson, the financial expert on ABC Good Morning America. First Paula Patton now Mellody. I ask you my sisters at the New Pittsburgh Courier, what’s up with all these Black women going to rich White men? Not that there’s anything wrong with it!:03—On Jan 23, 1979 the great Willie Mays was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame. That’s not surprising. What is surprising is it was not a unanimous decision … huh?
