The purse increased from its total of $10,500,000 last year, while Molinari collected $1.44 million for his win in 2018. It is still the smallest of the four majors, however. The U.S. Open is the largest at $12.5 million, while the Masters and PGA Championship both amount to $11 million.Odds to win the British OpenThe golfers with the four best odds are among the top five in the World Golf Rankings, and all 10 who check in at +2500 or better are ranked in the top 20. McIlroy’s longstanding relationship with Royal Portrush and overall familiarity with links-style golf make him an early favorite, while Koepka and Johnson have generally struggled more with British Open courses compared to the other majors.GolferOddsRory McIlroy+800Brooks Koepka+1000Dustin Johnson+1600Tiger Woods+1600Jon Rahm+1600Justin Rose+2000Francesco Molinari+2500Patrick Cantlay+2500Tommy Fleetwood+2500Xander Schauffele+2500(Odds via Bovada) It’s hard to believe the PGA Tour’s slate of majors in 2019 is coming to an end, but here we are. The British Open, the final of the four major championships on the 2019 calendar, takes place from Royal Portrush in Northern Ireland, and if it’s anything like the first three majors, the quest for the Claret Jug shouldn’t disappoint. last_img read more

She was playing off 19 handicap and returned a net score of one-under 71.The 10 qualifiers for the Grand Medal Final to find England’s top woman handicap golfer, are: Becky Wyatt (Penn, Staffordshire), Kelly Morley (Astbury, Cheshire), Hannah Golding (Brocton Hall, Staffordshire), Laura  Morrison (Garforth, Yorkshire), Holly Langford (Perton Park, Staffordshire), Barbara Suffolk (Lingdale, Leicestershire), Wendy Kerry (Ruddington Grange, Nottinghamshire), Judi Downward (Belton Woods, Lincolnshire), Tracy Lane (Staverton Park, Northamptonshire) and Emma Sirrell (Bridgnorth, ShropshireThey’ll play off with qualifiers from five other events at the Grand Medal Final at Frilford Heath in Oxfordshire on Thursday, 13 August. It will be a feature of the new Golf Week festival, staged by England Golf to create a national grand finale for a host of handicap and team championships.All the regional finalists had returned the best four scores at their club in the England Golf Medals during 2014.Becky first played golf as a child, but was never grabbed by the game. Then, three years ago she decided to have another go and “fell in love with it.” She’s made rapid progress, cutting her handicap from 26 to 18 last year, when she qualified for this competition. This season she quickly came down to 16 and, after the regional medal final, is now playing off 15.She played steadily at Rothley Park, helped by an early birdie and by holding her nerve after a triple bogey on the 13th – over the remaining five holes she managed three consecutive pars.This is her first taste of national competition and she said: “It’s been a really amazing experience, just seeing the scoreboard and the set-up. It’s really good and I can’t wait to get to Frilford Heath.” 26 May 2015 Becky leads 10 players into national final last_img read more

Appsfire Tracks Hot Apps with AppTrends

first_imgTags:#Product Reviews#web A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Related Posts Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… It’s been 75 silent days since iPhone app sharing service Appsfire submitted version 2.0 to Apple for entry into the App Store, but in the meantime, the company has released a new way of finding apps. Instead of solely relying on recommendations from friends, Appsfire now offers recommendations on your next downloads with a popular app tracker called AppTrends. The introduction of AppTrends comes alongside announcements that ex-Jaiku co-founder Jyri Engestrom has joined on as an adviser and that the company has received a new round of funding from Lerer Ventures. AppTrends is the first live ranking of iPhone apps outside of the App Store, according to the company. The rankings are determined by looking at Twitter and seeing what apps people are talking about most. The service looks at iTunes URLs (even those shrunk using URL shorteners like Bit.ly) contained in tweets, ranking not only by the number of mentions but also by the influence of the Twitter user. The list of apps, which currently sits at 20 but will soon expand to 100, updates every hour and shows how apps have moved up or down in the listing in the last one, 12 and 24 hours. In addition to the listing, clicking on each app will show what people are saying about it on Twitter. For each, a link is provided to preview the app, read a description and download or buy the app. mike melanson Aside from offering a list of what’s hot to the consumer, AppTrends also looks to provide insight to app developers on why their app is moving up or down in the listing, by seeing what people are saying about the app. According to the company, the App Store ranking is “updated at best once a day” and AppTrends has shown trends quicker than the App Store on several occasions. For now, the site is just a list of 20 top apps, but soon it will include localization with rankings by country, rankings by category (such as games or health and fitness), access to a history of app rankings and notifications for developers. Part of what we like most about this new service is that it offers some insight behind why something is popular, beyond Apple says so. Looking at how apps move up and down within the rankings, and being able to see why, is a step beyond a simple list of top downloads. Beyond that, we hope that looking at tweets might move past those simple app rankings provided in the App store, which we can’t help but look at with suspicion. AppTrends is live as of today and already showing the hot of the hot. At the top of today’s list? The just-released Hulu Plus, of course. last_img read more

Teck Resources lowers Q1 coal sales guidance works to complete Elkview repairs

first_imgVANCOUVER – Teck Resources Ltd. lowered its guidance for steelmaking coal sales for the first quarter as it worked to finish repairs to its coal drying complex in B.C. that was damaged earlier this year.The company says steelmaking coal sales volumes for the quarter are now expected to be about six million tonnes compared with earlier guidance for 6.3 million to 6.5 million tonnes.The coal dryer at Teck’s Elkview operations was damaged in January in what a union executive described as an explosion.Teck says the coal dryer has been recommissioned after a “pressure event” and full commercial production is expected to resume early next week.Production lost due to the incident was estimated to be about 200,000 tonnes of clean coal and repairs were estimated at less than $10 million, in line with earlier estimates.Teck says coal sales continued to be hurt by logistics issues during the quarter, particularly ongoing poor performance at Westshore Terminals.Companies in this story: (TSX:TECK.B)last_img read more

Serie A is harder than Ligue 1 Pastore

first_imgThe new Roma signing spoke after the 3-3 draw between his team and Atalanta on Monday’s Lega Serie A fixtureFor newly signed Javier Pastore, the differences between the Italian Serie A and the French Ligue 1 are big.His Roma team fought back to be able to tie 3-3 against Atalante on Monday’s fixture.But for the former Paris Saint-Germain, this was a very crazy match.“It was a good goal, Cengiz Under gave me a smart cross and the finish went well. Fortunately, we were able to equalize eventually,” Pastore told Sky Sports Italia as reported by Football Italia on Monday night.Rick Karsdorp, Roma, Serie AKarsdorp reveals he had too much stress at Roma Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 The Dutch defender has been with the Gialorrossi since 2017, but he has not enjoyed his time in the Italian Lega Serie A.“I think after our goal, we got a bit too relaxed and allowed them to have the ball, but that is something we shouldn’t do.”“We came out for the second half with more intensity and managed to get it back on track. We could even have won it at the end,” he said.“My position is up to the coach, I came here happy to play wide midfield, but well aware that I had often played in a trident attack before.”“It’s certainly harder in Serie A than Ligue 1, the first two games have been such a struggle!” Pastore concluded.last_img read more
