The quest for No. 16 starts now…. #PGAChamp pic.twitter.com/Ww2DJTzjaL— PGA Championship (@PGAChampionship) August 6, 2020Shot 2: Tiger goes after the ball with a 3-wood, but the shot is short and right of the green. That’ll be tough to salvage birdie from here. He’s clearly not pleased with it either:Tiger one step into the rough. Still pulls lumber. First f-bomb of the day! This must be a major. pic.twitter.com/zrCynsyfUK— Alan Shipnuck (@AlanShipnuck) August 6, 2020Shot 3: And Tiger’s shot is a beauty — he lobs it on the green 6 feet from the pin. Very makeable birdie attempt coming up.Shot 4: Birdie! Tiger sinks the shot from 6 feet out to go 1-under for the round. On to the next one.The silence is … deafening.This must be a first: Tiger Woods introduced on the tee at a major championship and … utter silence. So weird @PGAChampionship pic.twitter.com/B0oHR2y78X— Ron Kroichick (@ronkroichick) August 6, 2020 Tiger Woods didn’t play his best round of golf at the PGA Championship on Thursday, and it was still good enough for a 2-under-par 68 — good for a top-20 finish.Tiger started the day in ideal fashion, getting a birdie out of the gate on the par-5 10th hole. Three hole laters, he sunk a 30-foot birdie to go 2-under through two holes and appeared set to challenge for the top spot. He bogeyed on Holes 13 and 4, however — no thanks to an abysmal drive game — to fall back to even for the round. Yet just when it looked like Tiger would slug his way through a disappointing round, he fired off three birdies in the last six holes to go 2-under for the day. He’ll likely find several points to improve on for Round 2 (pulling on his drives, a hit-or-miss approach game and a couple of missed short putts), but Tiger at least is within striking range of leader Jason Day (5-under par through one round).Sporting News tracked Tiger Woods’ first round at the 2020 PGA Championship, including stats and highlights.

He absolutely smoked it.Shot 2: So-so approach with the iron gets Tiger about 25 feet from the pin. He has made it from this distance today and he’d love to finish the day with another birdie.Shots 3, 4: Beautiful putt lands within gimme range just short of the hole. He walks it in for par to end Round 1.Hole 8: Par 3, 251 yards (bogey)Shot 1: Tiger is short and right on the par-3 eighth, in the bunker.Shot 2: Chip shot lands Tiger 8 feet within the hole to salvage par. He’ll want to have this to maintain his momentum.Shot 3: He misses it — tough break. He’ll look to get that one back on the ninth.Shot 4: Bogey.Hole 7: Par 4, 340 yards (birdie)Shot 1: Tiger split it right down the fairway, using an iron on 7. He’s 131 yards from the hole after the 217-yard drive.Shot 2: Another iron shot gives Tiger a 13-foot look at birdie.Shot 3: Birdie! Tiger’s feeling it now — three in four holes to go 3-under for the round.Hole 6: Par 4, 472 yards (par)Shot 1: And Tiger’s back on the fairway on the sixth, blasting it 307 yards. He’s 165 yards from the hole.Shot 2: Tiger’s approach is OK: He’s sitting on the front of the green about 30, 35 feet from the pin.Shot 3: Good putt gets Tiger close, but no birdie. He’ll have par coming up.Shot 4: Par.Hole 5: Par 4, 346 yards (birdie)Shot 1: Tiger stripes it just off-center, 294 yards down the fairway — his first fairway since 15. He is 148 yards from the hole.Shot 2: And a good approach lands Tiger within 20 feet for birdie.Shot 3: Make that back-to-back birdies for Tiger! He sinks it from 13 feet out to go back to 2-under for the round. Not a bad turnaround with four holes remaining.Hole 4: Par 5, 607 yards (birdie)Shot 1: Left again on 4 (273-yard drive, 306 yards to the hole). Can’t afford to scramble here.Shot 2: Tiger has hacked his way out and is back on the fairway, 160 yards from the hole.Shot 3: A beautiful lob lands Tiger at about 4 feet for birdie. Great look coming up here.Shot 4: And he makes birdie! A much-needed shot to get Tiger back in the negative as he tackles the final five holes of the day.Hole 3: Par 3, 185 yards (par)Shot 1: Tiger is a little long and left on his approach — what else is new?Shot 2: Great chip by Tiger lands him close to the pin — gimme distance.Shot 3: And he makes par to remain even through 12 holes played. Gotta get something going on the par-5 fourth.Hole 2: Par 4, 446 yards (bogey)Shot 1: Another tee shot that’s far left, even of the bunkers. Tiger having some issues pulling it today: That’s his fifth straight.pic.twitter.com/BECCi5mQUT— Tiger Tracker (@GCTigerTracker) August 6, 2020Shot 2: Tiger’s back on the fairway, but well short of the green. Not doing himself any favors on his tee or approach shots.Shot 3: A nice pitch lot lands Tiger within 4-5 feet for par. Can’t take that for granted after 14.Shot 4: Missed it low — that’s rough. Might have made it if it were maybe 20 feet out, but that’ll send him back to par regardless.Shot 5: Bogey.Hole 1: Par 4, 393 yards (par)Shot 1: Not a bad tee shot, lands just left of the fairway. He’ll look to make up some ground here on the front nine.Shot 2: Tiger finally gets a decent approach — his first since Hole 12 — landing at 15 feet for birdie.Shots 3, 4: Tiger gets a decent look but misses it low and right. Hell settle for the two-putt par at 1.Hole 18: Par 4, 480 yards (par)Shot 1: Tiger put a little too much mustard on his tee — it’s a little left of the fairway in the rough.Shot 2: Big swing on the approach lands short and left of the green. Barring an inconceivable chip shot, he’s looking at an up-and-down for par.Shot 3: And Tiger’s chip goes well past the hole — 20 feet. Not looking good.Shot 4: Wow, Tiger manages to save par with another beautiful long putt. He turns 18 1-under, which is looking pretty good right about now.Hole 17: Par 3, 171 yards (par)Shot 1: Let’s let Tiger Tracker break down Tiger’s tee:Bad swing, hands off the club, disgusted and it’s 20 feet. Ha….— Tiger Tracker (@GCTigerTracker) August 6, 2020Shots 2, 3: Tiger two-putts from 27 feet out for par.Hole 16: Par 4, 336 yards (par)Shot 1: Tiger hits a low stinger off 16; it lands in the first bunker about 80 yards from the hole. Yikes.Shot 2: Not a great approach shot either. Lands on the green and rolls well into the rough on the other side.Shot 3: A nice chip by Tiger lands him 4 feet from the hole. Needs that to salvage this hole.Shot 4: And salvage it he does, avoiding the disaster on 14. He remains 1-under.Hole 15: Par 4, 401 yards (par)Shot 1: Tiger’s back at it with a smokeshow off the tee.Shot 2: A wedge shot from roughly 115 yards out lands short — 60 feet from the green — and backtracks. Not great after the beautiful tee shot.Shot 3: Good lag putt lands Tiger to within 3 feet. Anything other than par would be devastating here.Shot 4: Par. Onward.Hole 14: Par 4, 470 yards (bogey)Shot 1: Missed the drive left. Not ideal after a couple of beauts off the tee.Shot 2: Ball was in an awkward position off the tee, so Tiger ends up in the bunker short and left of the green. He’s likely going to need an up-and-down just to salvage par here.Shot 3: A great bunker shot lands Tiger about 5-6 feet to the hole. Needs that to salvage par.Shot 4: Oof. Tiger missed and was already walking on. Bad bogey on 14.Things you hate to see pic.twitter.com/1ImDiwJbaU— No Laying Up (@NoLayingUp) August 6, 2020Shot 5: Bogey.Hole 13: Par 4, 472 yards (birdie)Shot 1: Another great shot off the tee: 284 yards to the right fairway, 180 yards from the hole. Tiger’s picking up in that department after a couple of “meh” attempts to start the day.Shot 2: Tiger’s approach leaves him about 30 feet from the hole. Not the best.Shot 3: Birdie! A beautiful straight shot by Tiger on his fourth hole of the day. He’s got to be happy with that.A long birdie putt moves Tiger to 2-under.Full Leaderboard➡️ https://t.co/QV8fkpw4hG pic.twitter.com/b5AAmoUl3c— PGA Championship (@PGAChampionship) August 6, 2020Hole 12: Par 4, 493 yards (par)Shot 1: Tiger absolutely blisters it off the tee on the par-4 12th. Best tee off the day: roughly 308 yards and on the left side of the fairway.Shot 2: Good approach lands about 7 feet from the pin. Went right at it from 180 yards out — good luck at Tiger’s second birdie of the day coming up.Shot 3: Tiger misses it. Par shot coming up.Shot 4: Par.Hole 11: Par 3, 210 yards (par)Shot 1: Tiger’s cleared the bunker on 11, but it rolls to about 30 feet from the pin. Likely lag putt upcoming.Shot 2: Not enough break on Tiger’s putt — it falls on the low side. He should go even on his second hole of the day.Shot 3: Par. On to Hole 12.Hole 10: Par 5, 562 yards (birdie)Shot 1: And we’re off. Tiger is a little to the left off the tee, slightly into the rough, but he has plenty of room to adjust.
Deputy Pat the Cope Gallagher has today welcomed this week’s news from Abbott Pharmaceutical that they are to create up to 500 new jobs in Donegal. The Donegal Deputy said the news is a massive vote of confidence for the region, and has called on state agencies and the local authority to ‘leave no stone unturned’ in order to facilitate the growth. Abbotts have a long and successful history in Donegal Town, where they are one of the area’s main employers for many years. This week’s jobs announcement has been greeted by Pat the Cope as ‘just the level of investment the area requires’.He said: “It is now going to be essential that all state agencies and the local authority work closely together in order to put in place all that will be required to have this plant fully operational in the time scale outlined by Abbotts. “This a massive opportunity for Donegal to show how proactive and progressive we are in delivering projects from planning stage to operational level, no stone must be left unturned in facilitating this plant for the Donegal town area and surrounding regions. “These are key jobs at a critical time for us in Donegal.” Pat the Cope congratulated Abbotts for choosing to expand at the Lurganboy Donegal site, which has been in operation since 2006.“The Lurganboy site is a centre of excellence for blood glucose monitoring equipment, and this has been achieved over the years through solid investment by Abbotts and the commitment of a very dedicated workforce at the plant,” said Pat the Cope.

Share140TweetShare20Email160 Shares“public middle school lunch” by woodleywonderworks.April 16, 2017; New York Times, Ridgefield Press, and U.S. News & World ReportThe troop numbers for Girl Scouts of Greater New York are determined by the city’s five boroughs, with the 1000s in the Bronx, 2000s in Brooklyn, and so on. Giselle Burgess is the leader for Troop 6000, the newest addition, but you won’t find Burgess’s troop on a map of the boroughs. Troop 6000 is the first in New York City designated solely for homeless girls.Currently, the troop’s members—21 and growing—live at the Sleep Inn, where the city has taken over all 10 floors to accommodate about 100 homeless families. The New York Times reported that the new troop is among several programs supported by the city to meet the needs of children, who make up nearly 40 percent of the roughly 60,000 people in the city’s primary shelter system. Of 287 people housed at the Sleep Inn, 155 are under 18, according to homeless services.Troop 6000 emerged from a collaboration between Girl Scouts, the homeless services department, and Councilman Jimmy Van Bramer of Queens, who himself experienced homelessness as a child in the 1970s. The city has been trying to move away from a well-criticized history of haphazard patchwork of placement for homeless families. Families are sometimes placed far from the zip code where they lived for years, leaving families without support systems and saddled with impossible commutes to school and work. Such moves also sever children from social activities.Burgess, the community engagement specialist for the Girl Scouts, moved the idea forward and set up the first meeting. She is herself homeless and has an all-too typical story of modern housing insecurity. Her affordable rental house was sold to make way for an upscale condo project; she found herself employed but unable to afford housing for her family. They landed at the Sleep Inn. Studies and client feedback have shown that hotel living for the homeless is not as ideal as a traditional house or apartment. Living without kitchen facilities makes it nearly impossible to eat healthy on a budget, and lack of privacy leads to other concerns. The troop has been a positive experience for Burgess’s daughters and may others at the hotel turned homeless shelter.Meanwhile, in Connecticut, the United Way of Western Connecticut (UWWC) announced they have directed $100,000 in funding this year to assist qualifying families in offsetting the cost of out-of-school enrichment programs for their children. The ALICE (Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed) Enrichment Fund came about after the board acted on extensive stakeholder feedback. “We heard overwhelmingly in our conversations with parents that a top concern is their inability to pay for enrichment activities for their children—such as sports, music and the arts,” said Kimberly Morgan, CEO of UWWC.The ALICE Enrichment Fund provides families who fall within its income category with scholarships for their children to participate in skill-building extracurricular activities. Relieving the stress from parents who feel guilty about not being able to provide afterschool enrichment to kids while keeping school-aged children busy, engaged, and mentally stimulated is clearly a win-win for the community, who will see the benefits in reduced teen pregnancy and drug use, if the statistics bear out.Finally, in New Mexico, the scrappy and young New Mexico Appleseed Foundation, founded in 2009 and part of a national network, has protected the sacred childhood rite of passage of being able to eat lunch with your peers without having to first publicly mop the lunchroom floor. New Mexico became the first state to outlaw the “lunch shaming” tactics schools sometimes employ upon students whose families have fallen behind on school lunch bills. The New York Times reported that in Alabama, a child short on funds was stamped on the arm with “I Need Lunch Money.” Children in other schools were forced to clean tables or mop floors in front of their peers to work off the debt. Other students saw their hot lunches thrown away due to unpaid debt. Jennifer Ramo, executive director of New Mexico Appleseed, told the New York Times, “It sounds like some scene from ‘Little Orphan Annie,’ but it happens every day.”The nonprofit found an all-star advocate in State Senator Michael Padilla. The New Mexico Democrat and State Senate majority whip said he introduced the bill because he grew up in foster homes and experienced shaming tactics as a child. He still remembers the names of school lunch ladies who were kind to him, Mrs. Ortiz and Mrs. Jackson, but told the New York Times he still had to do things like mop the school cafeteria floor. “It was really noticeable that I was one of the poor kids in the school,” Padilla said.On April 6, 2017, the governor, Susana Martinez, signed the Hunger-Free Students’ Bill of Rights, which directs schools to work with parents to pay their debts or sign up for federal meal assistance and puts an end to practices meant to embarrass children. It applies to public, private, and religious schools that receive federal subsidies for students’ breakfasts and lunches.With the legislation prohibiting “lunch shaming” on the books in New Mexico, the group hopes to work on using the state legislation as a model for federal law. Locally, New Mexico Appleseed is working in the Navajo Nation and across New Mexico to secure access to healthy meals for children outside of school hours and will continue their work to educate the public on the rights of homeless youth under the McKinney-Vento Act.—Carrie Collins-FadellShare140TweetShare20Email160 Shares
