Season comes to an end for Huskies

first_imgFORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The Fort St. John Huskies had their chances in game six against the Fairview Flyers but in the end couldn’t get the job done. The speed and experience of the Flyers as well as their power play efficiency were the difference in a 6-2 loss.The Huskies came out of the gate strong and had an early five on three power play but were unable to cash in. Despite having a 12-5 advantage in the shots Fort St. John was down one after the first period.Brandon Howard would tie the game in the second but the Huskies couldn’t capitalize on the momentum. Fairview potted three unanswered tallies to lead 4-1 heading to the third.- Advertisement -As the final stanza began the Flyers put the game on ice as they put up a fifth goal just over a minute into the period. Both teams exchanged a goal each the rest of the way to round out the scoring.“We’ve got if not the youngest, one of the youngest teams in the league this year,” said assistant coach Todd Alexander reflecting on the season. “I’m really proud of the boys in there. They gave a lot of fight all the way to the end and they never gave up and that’s what we ask. We never did anything stupid at the end of the game. It’s good discipline by us as well. You never want to go out looking like that and I think we went out a good, hard, honest way.”Given the youth on the Huskies roster Alexander added the post season run was a good learning experience which should only help the club come the 2016-2017 season.Advertisement “It’s huge. A lot of these guys it was their first taste of anything like that. Those are good memories. We can pull nothing but positives out of this series and this playoff run that we had this year. Sometimes you’ve got to lose to learn how to win. It stings and you don’t want that memory. I think that a lot of guys learned a lot of lessons and we’ll see what we have next year,” he said.Outgoing for the team as 21 year olds are Kody Disher, Cayle Bell, Jordan Harder, and Austin Braid. The group were counted on as leaders throughout the year leaving Alexander to tip his cap to their futures, and recognizing their contributions to the Huskies.“Those guys helped turn this program around and I’m really proud of those four gentleman. They’ve been nothing but good for this program and they’ve got nothing but bright futures going forward. Our culture is a lot better here now. It’s things like that, that you can build a good team off of and I think next year it will show,” he said.Scoring the other goal for the Huskies was Ryan McDonald.Advertisement The Flyers will advance to take on the North Peace Navigators in the NWJHL final. The two teams met in last year’s league final with Peace River winning in four games.last_img read more

Vazquez proving he’s Golden

first_imgIsrael Vazquez has come a long way since being stopped by Oscar Larios in the 12th round of a fight for the World Boxing Council super bantamweight interim title in May 2002. At that point, it appeared Vazquez might be just another one of those borderline world-class fighters who would never win a major championship. Vazquez, however, has gone 9-0 with seven knockouts since that setback, and today he is considered one of boxing’s most respected champions. In his fourth fight after the loss to Larios, Vazquez won the vacant International Boxing Federation super bantamweight belt with a 12th-round technical knockout of Jose Luis Valbuena. After two defenses, Vazquez took on Larios again and stopped him in the third round to take Larios’ WBC super bantamweight title. Vazquez has defended that belt twice and will make a third defense tonight when he squares off with Rafael Marquez at Home Depot Center in Carson. Showtime will televise. When Vazquez defeated Valbuena in March 2004 at the Olympic Auditorium, he became the first world champion under Oscar De La Hoya’s Golden Boy Promotions banner. He also became Mexico’s 100th world champion. “We have basically taken him, I think, from being a champion to a star,” said Richard Schaefer, CEO of Golden Boy. “And I think if he is going to go and win against Rafael Marquez, then I think he is on the road to being a superstar. “When the door is open, he knows how to walk through and take care of business in the ring.” center_img Vazquez actually left Golden Boy for a short time and signed with Sycuan Ringside Promotions. Vazquez has since re-signed with Golden Boy, and he is now co-promoted by the two companies. Vazquez, 29, of Huntington Park via Mexico City, remembers when few gave him a chance to make something out of his prize-fighting career. “At the beginning, nobody believed in me,” he said. “And I tried to prove little by little that I could become a good fighter.” Some believe Vazquez (41-3, 30 KOs) is better than good. His manager, Frank Espinoza of West Covina, has had his share of world-class fighters. One of them is Martin Castillo, who recently lost his World Boxing Association super flyweight title. Castillo is very talented, but Espinoza said Vazquez is the best fighter he has ever managed. “He has been the most surprising,” Espinoza said. “People never really thought that he had (the goods). I always felt confident in him, but he has showed me even more, that he has the hunger and he wants to accomplish something.” Marquez, a longtime bantamweight champion who is moving up in weight, is ranked in the top half of most respected top-10 pound-for-pound polls. Should Vazquez defeat him, it would go a long way in getting Vazquez the superstar status Schaefer speaks of. Vazquez also wants to leave his stamp in other weight classes. “My manager, Frank Espinoza, and I have been talking about moving up in weight and it’s something that has been on our minds lately,” Vazquez said. “But it is something that I am going to take slowly. I want to say that I do want a shot at Manny (Pacquiao) and I do want a shot at (Marco Antonio) Barrera.” Keep in mind that Vazquez did not have to take this fight with Marquez, who is 36-3 with 32 knockouts. A lot of champions would have avoided an opponent like Marquez, an absolute vicious puncher. But Vazquez has never been into ducking anyone. When he says he wants to move up in weight and fight the likes of super featherweight stars such as Pacquiao and Barrera, he means it. “Israel and I know that if you want to be great, you have to fight the best,” Espinoza said. Fortunately for Vazquez, he will have his trainer, Freddie Roach, in his corner tonight. Roach is training De La Hoya for his May5 mega fight against Floyd Mayweather Jr. in Las Vegas. Originally, the entire De La Hoya camp was supposed to leave Thursday to begin training in Puerto Rico today. But De La Hoya said Wednesday at a Hollywood news conference that he will allow Roach to stay behind an extra couple of days to work Vazquez’s corner. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Rural Net users rely on satellite

first_imgMichael Schuppenhauer, a biotechnology consultant, lives in an idyllic canyon off the Pacific Ocean near Half Moon Bay, Calif. On the other side of the Santa Cruz Mountains, just 40 minutes away, lies the heartland of the Internet: Google’s headquarters and Silicon Valley. Yet the Internet has passed by Schuppenhauer’s ranch. It’s too far from the local telephone hub for a digital subscriber line, or DSL. There’s no cable. Even cell phones don’t work, because of the rugged terrain. He could use dial-up, but that’s too slow for much of today’s Internet; handling large files such as online video is difficult. So Schuppenhauer gets broadband Internet service through a coffee-table-sized satellite dish on the side of his house that sends his Google search requests on a 44,600-mile round trip into space. Compared with cable or DSL, it’s slow and expensive – $85 a month – but it allows Schuppenhauer to work full-time from home. “We have three horses and do competitive riding,” he said. “We moved out here and we’re going to stay here.” Schuppenhauer has plenty of company. Satellites are the only broadband Internet choice available to as many as 10 percent of U.S. households, according to the largest consumer satellite broadband provider, Hughes Communications Inc. “As people start realizing that there will be Internet haves and have-nots, they will be setting up satellite dishes,” Schuppenhauer said. HughesNet and its main competitor, WildBlue Communications Inc., are betting hundreds of millions of dollars that their lock on that market will last. They’re more than doubling their capacity this year with two new satellites. That’s good news for second-homers, farmers, long-distance commuters and others who are looking to get connected. However, the new satellites will do little or nothing to improve on the quality of service, which is handicapped by the capacity of the satellites and their distance from Earth. Schuppenhauer calls his current HughesNet service “bearable.” He tried WildBlue earlier but had problems with slow uploads. HughesNet, based in Germantown, Md., launched two-way satellite service for consumers and small businesses in 2001. It had 327,500 such subscribers in the U.S. at the end of last year, and has been signing up 11,000 a month since then, according to marketing head Arunas Slekys. HughesNet has been leasing capacity on a few different satellites, but in August, it will launch its first own satellite, the Spaceway 3. WildBlue, which is based in Greenwood Village, Colo., serves about 160,000 customers. It has been using spare bandwidth on a Canadian TV satellite, but in March, it turned on a new dedicated broadband satellite that will boost its potential total capacity to a million subscribers, according to chief executive Dave Leonard. A third service, StarBand, has about 30,000 home and small-business satellite broadband subscribers in the U.S. It’s a subsidiary of Gilat Satellite Networks Ltd., an Israeli company. Part of the problem with satellite Internet service is that the users are all competing for time on the satellite. When WildBlue service launched in 2005, the first users were often ecstatic about it, because they weren’t so many as to slow each other down. “It was really neat, because everything just worked. I would really call it `real broadband’ back then,” said Jeff Cashman, who uses the service to edit the Beaver Beacon monthly newspaper and to update Web sites from Beaver Island in Lake Michigan. The sandy island, a little more than two hours by ferry from Charlevoix, Mich., has about 600 permanent residents. But WildBlue’s satellite started filling up, and in November last year, the company changed the way it divided the satellite’s capacity. The move allowed the satellite to accommodate more people, but slowed down response times. “That’s when I stopped recommending it,” said Cashman. “If you look at this industry 10 years from now, there’s still a good chance consumers will still be unhappy. And the reason is that satellite bandwidth is extremely expensive,” said Randy Scott, manager at VSAT U.S., a Monument, Colo., company that installs satellite dishes for commercial customers. HughesNet is one of the companies he works with. The new satellites, Scott said, could be used to improve the speed of the service, but the companies are choosing to increase capacity instead. With its new satellite, WildBlue appears to be careful not to raise expectations the way it did with its first satellite in 2005, Scott said. People got used to the service and were disappointed as the satellite filled up and response times were throttled back. “Guess what? They’ve learned their lesson,” Scott said. HughesNet has made enough capacity available “to keep the customer happy enough that they won’t quit ’em, but not so happy that they’re delighted,” Scott said. (Hughes CEO Pradman Kaul said, “Our goal is to provide all of our customers with a high-quality Internet experience which meets their requirements.”) The other big limitation of using satellites is the speed of light: It takes at least half a second to send a signal like a Google search request to a satellite and get the results back. Because of congestion on the satellite, the time can run to three times that. That’s not a big problem for Web surfing, but videoconferencing and online banking are hampered. Cashman is hoping Beaver Island will leave the limitations behind with its own wireless data network, which so far only covers a portion of the island’s main settlement, St. James. Cellular broadband is stealing away some satellite users in other areas, but WildBlue and HughesNet believe that the expense of building out these networks means they will never reach everybody who wants them. In the meantime, the faraway WildBlue satellite does the job of bringing Beaver Island closer to the rest of the world. “The Internet has been a nice link to make everything more accessible,” Cashman said. “For me, it really feels like I can compete with people on the mainland.” On the Net www.hughes.com www.wildblue.com www.starband.com160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Argentines caught between love and indifference for Maradona

first_imgHow to take his attention-grabbing outbursts is a recurring theme back home in Argentina.“He thinks that the love that Argentines lavish on him is so great that when he behaves badly we’ll look the other way,” said 55-year-old businessman Bruno Sollner.Daniel Carballo, 56, agreed that Maradona “is not an example, at least not for me and most of my friends and my family, no.” “There are things that are not acceptable, but well, he’s like that,” Carballo added.Other South Americans tend to perceive Argentines as arrogant, and Maradona’s cockiness and public anguish seem to personify a nation’s suffering at its team’s stuttering performance in Russia.“He is arrogant, he gets out of control because of arrogance,” said Sollner. Maradona got adoration for his goals against England in the 1986 World Cup, both the cheat goal he scored with his hand — he called it the “Hand of God” — and another, when he danced past five English players to score what is widely acknowledged as one of the greatest goals of all time.In Buenos Aires that day, he became a god. It was almost as if he had avenged with a football Argentina’s painful defeat in the Falklands War against Britain four years earlier.– Idol of a new generation –Maradona raising his middle fingers to fans during Argentina’s World Cup match against Nigeria in Saint Petersburg on June 26, 2018 © AFP/File / OLGA MALTSEVAIrreverent, charismatic and provocative, Maradona remains an idol in Argentina, even for a generation too young to have seen him play, when his name became synonymous with footballing genius.Paula Garcia Paz, a teacher, was six when Maradona lifted the World Cup in 1986.“I’ll never forget it, that goal against England is something so memorable for Argentines,” she said.Sollner said “we love him because he has stood up to the powerful, because on the pitch he never gave up, and you can see how much defeat hurts him.“That devotion for a soccer fan is vital, it’s called sweating for the shirt,” he added.The antics at the World Cup have been amusing and disturbing by turns, but for Argentines a distracting sideshow to the main event on the pitch.Carried out of his seat in the VIP box after the match, he was forced to deny rumors he had been hospitalized, saying the next day that he was “very alive.”“In Russia he’s caused a stir, he’s a guy who retired decades ago and who won things 30 years ago, but if he sneezes. we’re all on tenterhooks, waiting. That’s unique. That’s Maradona,” said Sollner.– Diego, to the Nth degree –Maradona remains an idol in Argentina, even for a generation too young to have seen him play, when his name became synonymous with footballing genius © AFP / EITAN ABRAMOVICHThose who know Maradona describe him as having an explosive personality while keeping his feet on the ground, despite having reached a sporting Olympus.“Diego was a kid in the slum, with a kite, on which he wrote the name Maradona. He started to run and the kite took flight, but he stayed on the ground,” is how biographer Guillermo Blanco puts it.Blanco said Maradona “just like everyone else has goodness, badness, ego, solidarity… but when he does something, he’s unlike others who are considered ‘balanced.’ He does it to the Nth degree.”Angry with his daughters, in a legal battle with his ex-wife, scammed by a relative or banned for doping at the 1994 World Cup, Maradona’s turbulent front-page life makes him a figure of pity for many Argentines, particularly the middle class.They still deride him for flaunting his friendships with late leftist leaders Fidel Castro and Hugo Chavez.Angry with his daughters, in a legal battle with his ex-wife, scammed by a relative or banned for doping at the 1994 World Cup, Maradona’s turbulent front-page life makes him a figure of pity for many Argentines © AFP/File / Giuseppe CACACEHe insists he no longer takes cocaine, a habit that began in his heyday with Italian team Napoli, but his behavior during the Nigeria match has given rise to some concern.“He needs to continue getting attention like in former times, but by giving an even worse example,” said Laura Orsi. “He is an icon of another time, but he erased all the glory with his behaviour: drugs, alcohol and fame went to his head,” said the 56-year-old systems analyst.– More than Messi –Former Argentina forward Diego Maradona (C) celebrates the opening goal during the Russia 2018 World Cup Group D football match between Nigeria and Argentina at the Saint Petersburg Stadium in Saint Petersburg on June 26, 2018 © AFP / Giuseppe CACACEThere are inevitable comparisons between Maradona and Lionel Messi, but until the younger man wins a World Cup, Maradona remains a cut above for most Argentines.“Messi is a phenomenon, but the world of football, until now, has not seen a player like Maradona,” his old teammate Claudia Caniggia said recently.Another contemporary, Julio Olarticoechea, agreed: “Seeing him, not only in games, but in training, was something else. Diego was magic. That’s the word.”“Messi still hasn’t managed to give us the happiness Diego did,” said Garcia Paz, the teacher.“He thought he was a god and made many mistakes, but I know that the day he leaves this world, Argentina will be paralyzed.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000A museum in Buenos Aires is dedicated to Diego Maradona © AFP / EITAN ABRAMOVICHBuenos Aires, Argentina, Jun 30 – Argentine legend Diego Maradona is a controversial idol, worshipped as a god for his World Cup-winning exploits but whose life of excess has left a tormented public back home torn between veneration and derision.The 57-year-old hit the headlines in Russia this week when he was filmed making two-handed middle-finger gestures to fans during Argentina’s narrow win over Nigeria in their final World Cup pool game.last_img read more

Hollywood producers make new offer to striking writers; guild calls it a rollback

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREPettersson scores another winner, Canucks beat Kings “The entire value of the New Economic Partnership will deliver more than $130 million in additional compensation above and beyond the more than $1.3 billion writers already receive each year,” the statement from the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers said. The $130 million sum appeared to be an annual figure, but the brief statement did not clarify whether the amount was per year or over the three-year life of a proposed new contract. No details of the terms were released in the first statement since both sides imposed a media blackout Monday. The guild countered with a lengthier response, saying the producers’ proposal only dealt with advertising-supported programs streamed for free and jurisdiction over shows created for the Web “and it amounts to a massive rollback.” The writers said their plan, presented Thursday, would cost producers $151 million over three years. “That’s a little over a 3 percent increase in writer earnings each year, while company revenues are projected to grow at a rate of 10 percent,” the statement said. “We are falling behind.” Hollywood studios presented a new contract offer to striking film and TV writers Thursday that the studios said would pay writers millions of dollars extra for shows created for the Internet. But writers said some of the proposals amounted to rollbacks and said studios should adopt their counteroffer. The Writers Guild of America said it asked for a recess in the talks until Tuesday to consider its options, but it called on members to continue picketing Friday and Monday. The producers said the new offer, dubbed the “New Economic Partnership,” included payments for work shown on the Internet, the key sticking points in the talks. The conflicting details and tone of the statements is confusing, said Jonathan Handel, an entertainment lawyer who served in the 1990s as an associate counsel for the writers guild. “None of this computes,” Handel said. “It’s very difficult to analyze this in any rigorous way.” Handel noted that, on the surface, the two sides seems to be only $20 million apart if the producers’ statement is read to mean $130 million over three years. The tone of the writers’ statement seems angry, Handel said, while the producers’ statement seemed more upbeat. Handel said both sides should end the confusion by publishing the full details of the proposals. David Kidd, a screenwriter from Glendale, said he was hopeful, but not overly optimistic, about what he described as an apparent “sweet offer” from producers. “I don’t know what sweet is until I taste it,” Kidd said. “Nobody wants to go in and accept a bad offer.” Meanwhile, protesting writers converged on NBC’s studios in suburban Burbank to rally against restarted production of the late-night show “Last Call With Carson Daly.” Several people said Daly circled the Burbank lot before entering a gate with no pickets. Adam Waring, who has written for the sitcom “Two and a Half Men,” said he and two other writers dashed around a corner to intercept Daly. “We stood in front of his car, and he told his driver to keep going,” Waring said, adding that protesters had to move out of the way. “Last Call” was the first late-night show to resume production since the strike began Nov. 5. The walkout has also idled production on many scripted television series. Daly has defended the move, saying he still supports the writers but did not want to see all 75 members of his staff and crew lose their jobs because of the work stoppage. Protesters at NBC carried signs reading, “Carson Daly Please Don’t Cross” and “Carson Daly Please Support Us.” Among them was Joe Medeiros, 56, head writer on the “Tonight Show with Jay Leno.” He said union members were disappointed with Daly’s break in solidarity. “All the other late-night hosts are holding firm,” Medeiros said. “That’s what they need to do to solve this in a timely manner.”— Associated Press Writer Solvej Schou contributed to this report.

MAN BANNED FROM DONEGAL UNTIL SENTENCING FOR HARASSING DOCTOR AND FAMILY

first_imgJohn McGrotty leaving Letterkenny courthouse after being barred from Donegal until his next appearance in June. (North West Newspix)A deaf man has been ordered to stay out of Co Donegal until he is sentenced for harassing a doctor and his family.John McGrotty, 65, appeared before Falcarragh District Court yesterday just days after a Judge told him to stay away from Dr Dara McEniff, his wife Eimear and their children. The court had heard how McGrotty had subjected the family from Dungloe to a five year reign of terror.As well as standing in his front lawn naked, McGrotty is accused of throwing rusty nails onto the McEniff’s driveway, using a hose to spray their cars with water, using obscene finger gestures to the couple’s children and shouting obscenities at them.McGrotty, of St Peter’s Terrace, Chapel Road, Dungloe, had pleaded guilty to harassing the couple when he appeared at Dungloe District Court on Wednesday last.The court heard Mrs McEniff at one stage saw stalker John McGrotty standing naked in his front room as she had to pass his house going to and from her own.The family’s baby-sitter Anne O’Donnell also saw him naked in his front room.Garda Dermot Gallen told Judge Paul Kelly he could not say why McGrotty, of St Peter’s Terrace, Chapel Road, Dungloe, was stalking the family.Dr Dara McEniff and wife Eimear leaving Letterkenny courthouse. (North West Newspix)The original charges to which McGrotty pleaded guilty there were up to 35 instances of alleged harassment still being considered by the Director of Public Prosecutions and court action could follow.Future charges could include two of the McEniff children, an 11-year-old and a six year-old, being frightened by McGrotty when he stared at one of them and put a finger up in front of anotherDr Dara McEniff kept a log-book of incidents between July 11 and December 11, 2014 which showed that on different occasions he pointed his finger at Mrs McEniff and walked directly in front of Dr McEniff as he drove through the estate.Judge Kelly: “This family has suffered horrendously since July 2013 almost up to last October. That is way out of the type of thing you might expect.”He added: “It’s terrible that young children on the way to school are afraid to walk past a neighbour’s house. That is intolerable.”McGrotty admitted harassing and stalking Dara and Eimear McEniff and their family at Pairc Naomh Anna, Chapel Rd, Dungloe, between July 7, 2014 and December 11, 2014.He also admitted harassing and stalking Eimear McEniff at St Peter’s Terrace between August 1, 2013, and July 24, 2014.Judge Kelly said he was anxious to ensure the harassment wouldn’t continue while he awaited a probation report and a victim impact statement.He instructed McGrotty not to pass the McEniff children’s school when it is open.Through an interpreter, McGrotty swore he had stopped the harassment and that all he wanted was a peaceful and calm life.Judge Kelly then adjourned the case until September 13th and warned McGrotty that if he breached his oath he would be in contempt of court and could face a custodial sentence.But McGrotty was brought to court again yesterday after Mrs McEniff complained that she had been harassed by the accused yet again on Friday last.She revealed how she was driving towards her house in Dungloe when McGrotty stood in front of her in the roadway and began to shout at her with his fist clenched as a funeral cortege was passing by.Gardai revealed how McGrotty had now regularly taken it upon himself to direct traffic at funerals even though the local priest had asked him to stop.Mrs McEniff revealed how she was shocked to see the accused standing in the middle of the road beside her house last Friday.” I was really shocked to see him on that road. You had instructed him to stay off the road as it is the road the children’s school is on.  He got very aggressive and was waving his arms and making all sorts of gestures.“I pulled car in and put my head down. He walked towards the car and was ver aggressive. I put my head down and I saw him at the side of my eye. I moved off and went home. It’s about 50 metres from school playground and it was midday,” she said.She pleaded with Judge Kelly to act on the matter as her family had been through a living nightmare for the past five years.Judge Kelly was told that a sign language interpreter could not be made available for yesterday’s (WED) court sitting and McGrotty’s solicitor Patsy Gallagher said he needed an interpreter for his client to give evidence.Judge Kelly said he had made a decision to order McGrotty to live outside of Donegal with his daughter in Glasnevin in Dublin.He asked that a letter be written by the court service instructing McGrotty of his decision.“I will remand him on bail for sentencing. I want it made clear to him that he is to leave Donegal and not to come back under any circumstances apart from a meeting with the mental health services. If he is Donegal he will be lifted and remanded in custody,” he said.He adjourned the case until June 14th.And he warned that if McGrotty does go anywhere near Dungloe –  “Gardai bring him back to me if he does.”MAN BANNED FROM DONEGAL UNTIL SENTENCING FOR HARASSING DOCTOR AND FAMILY was last modified: May 19th, 2016 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:donegalDonegal Eimear McEniffDr Dara McEniffdungloeJohn McGrottyJudge Paul Kellylast_img read more

Wie DQ’d in debut as pro

first_img It was a rude welcome less than two weeks after the 16-year-old phenom from Hawaii turned pro. First, she was helpless watching Annika Sorenstam send an emphatic statement with an eight-shot victory to clinch the LPGA Tour money title and her eighth LPGA Player of the Year award. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week Then, after Wie finished her round at 74, she was escorted by two rules officials to the par-5 seventh hole at Bighorn Golf Club to show them her drop from a desert bush the day before. Nearly two hours later, she was disqualified for signing an incorrect scorecard, a decision that cost her $53,126 in prize money. Because she dropped the ball closer to the hole by 3 inches according to her, by about a foot according to the rules officials she should have added two strokes to her third-round 71. “I learned a great lesson,” Wie said. “From now on, I’ll call a rules official no matter where it is, whether its 3 inches or 100 yards. I respect that.” Wie hit a 5-wood into a Gold Lantana bush Saturday and was barely able to find it. She told her playing partner, Grace Park, she was taking an unplayable lie, dropped away from the bush, then chipped to 15 feet and made par. Michelle Wie was expecting her first paycheck. She wound up in a rules dispute that got her disqualified Sunday from the Samsung World Championship for taking a bad drop in her professional debut. “I don’t feel like I cheated,” Wie said, her voice choked with emotion nearly two hours after she walked off the 18th green in Palm Desert with a respectable fourth-place finish. center_img Michael Bamberger, a reporter for Sports Illustrated, told tour officials Sunday afternoon that he was concerned about the drop. Rules officials Jim Haley and Robert O. Smith reviewed tape from NBC Sports before taking Wie and caddie Greg Johnston to the seventh green after the tournament ended Sunday. “If I had to make the ruling based on the videotape, to me it was inconclusive,” Smith said. He had Johnston and Wie show him where the ball was in the bushes, then where they dropped. They paced it off, then used string to measure the distance and determined it to be slightly closer. Even after her disqualification, Wie she felt she did nothing wrong. “I was honest out there,” she said. “I did what I thought was right. … But I learned my lesson.” Sorenstam started with a four-shot lead over Gloria Park, built her lead to nine shots at the turn and led by as many as 10 shots before making double bogey on the last hole for a 3-under 69. It was Sorenstam’s eighth victory of the year. She finished at 18-under 270 to finish eight shots ahead of rookie Paula Creamer. In other events … Wes Short Jr. hit his bunker shot within a foot of the pin, then tapped in for a par on the second hole of a playoff with Jim Furyk to win the Michelin Championship in Las Vegas for his first PGA Tour title. Mark McNulty closed with a 6-under 66 for a one-stroke victory over Gil Morgan in the Champions Tour’s Administaff Small Business Classic in Spring, Texas. France’s Raphael Jacquelin won the Madrid Open for his first PGA European Tour title, closing with a 2-under 69 for a three-shot victory over Paul Lawrie. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
