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

JFK Harassed by Thieves

first_imgLiberia’s referral hospital, the John F. Kennedy Memorial Health Center, has expressed serious concern about the recent wave of criminal activities affecting the medical facility, authorities of the institution disclosed.In a conversation with newsmen Tuesday, April 22, in Monrovia, the hospital’s Chief Administrator, Dr. Wvannie-Mae Scott-McDonald, said that despite rigid security measures instituted by her administration, stealing still remains an ongoing problem at the compound.She noted that many times, criminals invade the area and in most cases, make away with personal belongings and hospital equipment.Although she did not provide details of said allegations, Madam Scott-McDonald revealed an incident when she came in one day and later realized that a new wall clock recently procured for one of the offices had been stolen.“There are cases of theft at JFK, and this is a problem for which we are greatly concerned,” she said.The JFK boss reiterated her commitment to the modernization of the hospital and its capacity to respond to the growing demand from the general public, adding; “JFK has the ability to address most of the medical needs of the public, and as such, we encourage our people to take interest in their own hospital so that resources will remain here.”Madam Scott-McDonald made the disclosure Tuesday in hospital compound when Montserrado County Representative Edwin M. Snowe made a donation of food items to the hospital.Rep. Snowe, in a show of goodwill, donated several bags of cassava he said were harvested from his farm.According to him, the intent of the donation was to assist in the provision of meals to both in-patients and health workers at the hospital.He applauded the tireless efforts of JFK’s management for their responses to the health concerns of the entire nation, noting; “JFK remains important to all of us.”Responding to the donation, JFK’s Chief Administrator expressed gratitude to the former Speaker of the House of Representatives and praised him for his donation to the operations of the medical facility.“I would like to thank Rep. Snowe and recognize that he’s one of the users of this facility. He brings his family here whenever they are sick and he also takes treatment at this hospital,” Dr. Scott-McDonald indicated.She then encouraged other officials of government and other prominent citizens to treat JFK as their own.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
