Davies heads to Mizuno final round with share of lead

first_imgSHIMA, Japan – Laura Davies of Britain shot a 5-under 67 to share the Mizuno Classic lead with Ai Suzuki of Japan and Ilhee Lee of South Korea after Saturday’s second round. The 51-year-old Davies offset two bogeys with seven birdies at the Kintetsu Kashikojima course for a 9-under 135 total. The English player won the most recent of her 20 LPGA Tour titles in 2001. ”I’ve been playing well but my results have been horrendous,” Davies said. ”If you don’t hole putts, you can’t compete out here anymore. It’s not like it’s a shock to me but it’s a nice surprise.” Davies has a chance to become the oldest winner in LPGA history at the age of 51 if she can close out the tournament for the 21st LPGA victory of her career. ”Obviously, it’s a bad thing, really, because it means I’m really old,” Davies said of the possibility of being the oldest winner. ”But it would be a nice thing too because it would mean I have a good record.” Suzuki finished with four straight birdies to record the day’s lowest score of 64 while Lee shot a bogey-free 66. Suzuki became the youngest winner of the Japan LPGA Championship in September at age 20 and is competing in her first LPGA event. ”I won’t be thinking about the win,” Suzuki said. ”l’ll just try my best and see how I can do in an LPGA tournament.” Japan’s Kotono Kozuma fired a 67 and was one stroke back with South Koreans Mi Hyang Lee (67) and Chella Choi (68). Second-ranked Stacy Lewis, the 2012 winner, shot 72 and was tied for 27th while defending champion Teresa Lu of Taiwan (67) was five strokes back. Lee Na Ri of South Korea had eight birdies against a lone bogey for a 65 and is two strokes back. Karrie Webb of Australia shot a 68 and is tied for eighth place at 6-under with Jessica Korda (67) of the United States and Japan’s Ayako Uehara (68). Overnight leader Morgan Pressel of the United States had an even-par 72 to fall into a tie for 11th place.last_img read more

first_imgAnthony Weiner reports to prison for sexting conviction Published: November 6, 2017 1:57 PM EST Author: AP AYER, Mass. (AP) Former Rep. Anthony Weiner reported to prison Monday to begin a 21-month sentence for sexting with a 15-year-old girl.Weiner is being held at the Federal Medical Center Devens in Massachusetts, a Bureau of Prisons spokesperson said.The facility in Ayer, about 40 miles (64 kilometers) west of Boston, has over 1,000 inmates at the medical center and over 100 more at an adjacent minimum security satellite camp. It’s the same prison that once housed Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.Weiner was sentenced in September by a judge who said the crime resulted from a “very strong compulsion.” At the time, a tearful Weiner said he was undergoing therapy and had been “a very sick man for a very long time.”Amid a sexting controversy involving women, the New York Democrat resigned his U.S. House seat in 2011 only to have new allegations doom his 2013 run for mayor.MORE: Anthony Weiner sentenced to 21 months in sexting caseLast year, a criminal probe into his sexting with a high school student intruded into Democrat Hillary Clinton’s bid for the White House. Then-FBI Director James Comey announced in late October 2016 that he was reopening the probe of Clinton’s use of a private computer server after emails between Clinton and Weiner’s wife, Huma Abedin – formerly Clinton’s closest aide – were found on Weiner’s computer.Two days before Election Day, the FBI declared there was nothing new in the emails. But in a recent interview, Clinton called Comey’s intervention “the determining factor” in her defeat.Abedin and Weiner are in divorce proceedings.At sentencing in Manhattan federal court, Weiner attorney Arlo Devlin-Brown said his client likely exchanged thousands of messages with hundreds of women over the years and was communicating with up to 19 women when he encountered the teenager.Devlin-Brown declined to comment on Monday.MORE: Ex-US Rep.
