Westwood said his main priority was to finish in the top 24, rather than put pressure on himself to get a top-eight seeding. ”You’re going to need a lot of luck,” he said. ”It’s exciting for the fans and the format of the game. Golf needs something like that.” Andrew (Beef) Johnston shot 73-76 to be 4 over, and missed the cut, which was par. He was a late replacement for fellow Englishman Tyrrell Hatton, who was the highest-ranked player in the field at No. 15 before withdrawing with a wrist injury.

Harrison Burton making a name for himself that isn’t just ‘Jeff’s son’

first_imgLOUDON, N.H. — New Hampshire Motor Speedway hosts a hefty NASCAR lineup this weekend, which includes competition from the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series, XFINITY Series, Whelen Modified Tour, and the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East.Harrison Burton, a 16-year-old K&N East regular, sits in the midst of the quadruple on-track action, but feels little pressure as he heads into a busy weekend.“I like to be laid-back. I think if you get too uptight, you can kind of hurt yourself by overthinking everything,” Burton said.Burton is having a productive run in his sophomore season, and he will have the opportunity to showcase his dominance in front of experienced drivers and fans across the sport.But going into competition at New Hampshire, Harrison Burton, son of former Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series driver Jeff Burton, finds that as a driver, his image is clouded by his father’s success at NHMS. “I’m ready to try to add to my own name. Everyone always tries to relate me and my dad,” Burton said. “Everyone in the autograph line is like, ‘You’re Jeff’s son, right?’ I want to change that. I want to be Harrison.”Coming off a rough rookie season, Burton, a member of the 2017-18 NASCAR Next youth initiative class, is reeling in numbers atop the charts. This season, Burton holds an average finish of 2.9 with four wins. He’s finished in the top 10 in all eight races thus far and in the top five in all but one — he finished sixth at Berlin Raceway in Michigan. RELATED: See the entire 2017-18 NASCAR Next classThe No. 12 Dex Imaging driver was winless last season and had an average finish of 9.5. Now, Burton leads the K&N East series in points with 347, which is 22 more than second-place driver and last year’s champion, Todd Gilliland.Looking ahead, Burton says he feels comfortable heading into the latter end of the K&N season. “I’m really pumped for going into Iowa. I have truck experience there,” Burton said.“I feel like the road courses are (tracks) I feel like I’m going to perform better than last year. I feel like I’m pretty confident going into the road course races, and hopefully surprise everyone with a win.”In the meantime, Burton has his own recipe for posting a better finish than last year’s (seventh) at NHMS.“Unload fast,” he said. “Get off the trailer fast and do my job early as far as being in the right lane and having speed on my part. That makes our job so much easier as a race team to work on the car instead of working on myself.”last_img read more

Four games up in Onetouch league

first_imgDespite the country hosting two international games, the domestic OneTouch Premier League would still be on with halve the number of clubs taking to the grounds this weekend.Eight teams would be in action at four match venues on match-day-17 across the country following the decision by the Professional League Board to reschedule games involving the other eight to next week.Clubs like Liberty, AshantiGold, Hasaacas, King Faisal, Hearts of Oak and Wa All Stars would have the opportunity to consolidate their positions on the table.League leaders, Asante Kotoko would again be absent from match action – have two games in hand – this weekend and that could allow their closest challengers, Liberty Professionals to pile the pressure on them.Liberty Professionals would be away to AshantiGold at the Len Clay Stadium in a game which could go a long way to defining the Dansoman-based club’s title aspirations.Sunday’s game, the second for Mohammed Gargo, the new man at the helm of the Miners technical team, could also help the home team regain a place in the top four but they would find Liberty Professionals a rather strong opposition. At the Sekondi Sports Stadium, Hasaacas welcomes King Faisal, who are pushing for a Top Four place.A rather good start to the second round of the season has seen Accra Hearts of Oak move up the standings to eighth position from the relegation belt it held briefly during the first round.However the resurgence of the Phobians would be severely tested at Wa where they play All Stars who, with an improved squad, are hopeful of dashing the hopes of the defending champions.The last match for the day comes up at the Tema Park where the first derby of the second round would be played.Real Sportive would be at home to Tema Youth in a grudge game as both clubs attempt to lift themselves up the lower rungs of the table. Sportive are just a point richer than their rivals.Source: GFAlast_img read more

University of Illinois kidnapping suspect allegedly attended victim’s vigil, DOJ says

first_img Related ABC News(CHAMPAIGN, Ill.) — The man accused of kidnapping a visiting Chinese scholar at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign allegedly attended a vigil for his suspected victim, according to the Department of Justice.Brendt Christensen, 28, of Champaign, Illinois, was arrested on June 30 and charged with the kidnapping of 26-year-old Yingying Zhang on June 9, the FBI said. Zhang has not been found and the FBI said it believes the 26-year-old is dead.The Department of Justice said in a statement today, “According to statements made by the government during today’s hearing, the government alleges that Christensen attended and walked in a vigil for the victim on June 29; has made statements about the characteristics of the ideal victim; that the victim fought and resisted; and, that he made a threat to another person to whom he made incriminating statements.”A judge Wednesday ordered that Christensen be detained until his trial.While Christensen hasn’t entered a plea, his defense attorney, Evan Bruno, maintains he is innocent.The criminal complaint against Christensen, which outlines his alleged crime, does not identify Zhang by name. However, the FBI did name her in its press release.According to the complaint, around 1:39 p.m. on June 9, Zhang, who had arrived at the University of Illinois in April or May of this year, texted the manager of an apartment complex where she intended to sign a lease to say she was running late. She told the apartment manager that she planned to arrive around 2:10 p.m., according to the complaint.Surveillance video showed Zhang boarding a university bus around 1:35 p.m. and getting off about 1:52 p.m. Four minutes later, she tried to flag down another bus, but the bus did not stop, the complaint said, so Zhang walked to another bus stop.At 2 p.m., a car passed Zhang at the bus stop and circled the block, coming back to her, the complaint said. Authorities allege that Christensen was the driver.Three minutes later, the car slowed and pulled over to her, and Zhang was seen speaking with the driver through the passenger window for about a minute, the complaint said. At 2:04 p.m., Zhang got into the passenger seat and the car drove away, according to the complaint.When the apartment manager texted Zhang around 2:38 p.m., she didn’t respond, the complaint said. That night, an associate professor reported Zhang missing and authorities launched a search for her.Christensen, who authorities allege was behind the wheel of the car that picked up Zhang, initially said he could not remember his whereabouts on June 9, the complaint said. Christensen later said he must have been sleeping or playing video games at home all day, according to the complaint.Later, during an interview at the FBI’s Champaign office, Christensen “admitted to driving around the UI campus when he observed an Asian female with a backpack standing at a corner appearing distressed,” the complaint said. Christensen then claimed that he drove up to her and she said she was late to an appointment and that he offered her a ride. He said she got into his car and tried to show him where she needed to go, the complaint said.According to the complaint, “Christensen claimed that he believed he made a wrong turn, because the female became panicked, at which point Christensen claimed that he let her out of the vehicle in a residential area a few blocks away from where he picked her up.”But on June 29, Christensen allegedly was “captured on audio recording while under law enforcement surveillance explaining how he kidnapped” Zhang. The complaint said Christensen admitted to bringing her back to his apartment and holding her there against her will.According to the complaint, Christensen’s phone was used in April to visit a sexual fetish networking website called FetLife.com. The complaint said Christensen’s phone accessed a forum on the site called “’Abduction 101,’ to include sub-threads ‘Perfect abduction fantasy’ and ‘planning a kidnapping.’”Christensen, who had received a master’s degree in physics from the University of Illinois earlier this year, according to the AP, made an initial appearance in federal court Monday and was ordered held without bond.Bruno, his defense attorney, said that people should avoid jumping to conclusions until they have all of the facts.“My client is presumed innocent and he’s maintained his innocence,” Bruno told ABC News. “There is a reason why we have a criminal justice system and it’s to make sure that people have a fair process.”“A lot of the information that has been available to the media has been information that was provided in an FBI affidavit to try to establish probable cause that a crime was committed,” Bruno added. “There’s a lot more information out there that the public has yet to become aware of, and until the process has played out, I would caution anyone to [avoid jumping] to conclusions about what did or didn’t happen.”His bond hearing is set for Wednesday afternoon and his preliminary hearing is scheduled for July 14.Copyright © 2017, ABC Radio.
