U.S. Open 2019: Tiger Woods enters Friday’s Round 2 trying to ‘hang in there’

first_img U.S. Open 2019: Justin Rose closes round with 3 straight birdies to take solo lead Among the less-heralded players who were already on the course, American Aaron Wise offset an early bogey at No. 2 with back-to-back birdies at the fifth and sixth holes to move to 6 under, tied with Rose momentarily, before a double bogey at the par-3 seventh dropped him back to 4 under. Meanwhile, American Chesson Hadley, starting on the back nine, birdied No. 10 and No. 12 to get to 5 under.According to Friday’s forecast, breezes again were expected to be relatively tame, taking away one of Pebble Beach’s main defenses and making it a second consecutive day ripe for scoring. Thirty-nine players were under par after the opening round, the second-most in U.S. Open history, after the 44 who broke par at Erin Hills in 2017. Tiger Woods, who clawed his way to a 1-under 70 in Round 1 Thursday at the U.S. Open, is back on the course Friday at Pebble Beach with an eye toward putting things together for a run at a 16th major tournament victory.The key Friday, as always at Pebble Beach, is to strike early on the front side. U.S. Open 2019: Co-leader Rickie Fowler encouraged by start “The first seven holes you can get it going,” Woods said Thursday, “and you can be 4 to 5 under through the first seven holes.”But Woods, playing alongside overnight leader Justin Rose and Jordan Spieth, teed off at 8:24 a.m. local time Friday on No. 10 and squandered an early opportunity when he let a birdie putt inside 10 feet slide to the low side of the hole. Related News Still, despite not playing his best Thursday, Woods managed Thursday to stay within five shots of Rose.“It’s just fighting it out and grinding it out,” Woods said of staying in the mix. “You just kind of hang in there.”Lowest first-round score at a Pebble Beach U.S. Open …@TigerWoods, 65 (2000)@JustinRose99, 65 (2019)Who goes lower on Friday? pic.twitter.com/gfySyb3iZu— PGA TOUR (@PGATOUR) June 14, 2019Two-time defending U.S. Open champion Brooks Koepka, who went out some 20 minutes ahead of Woods’ group, was doing exactly that: He opened with a pair of pars to stay at 2 under, four shots off the early Round 2 lead.Woods entered Friday’s play tied for 28th, with a mix of the world’s top players, including Rose, Rickie Fowler (5 under), Rory McIlroy (3 under) and Koepka (2 under), ahead of him.The vast majority of the 27 players ahead of Woods after Round 1 will tee off after him in Round 2.

Opinions Sought at Sandy Hook Open House

first_imgBy John BurtonSANDY HOOK – The National Park Service is asking the public to offer its input about what should happen at Sandy Hook and other Gateway National Recreation Areas during the next two decades.An open house has been scheduled for 3 to 7 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 18, at Fort Hancock, the former U.S. Army facility.The purpose of the event is “to get community and public feedback about what should be done for the next 20 years,” as the park service drafts its general management plan, park service spokesman John Harlan Warren said.The park service is developing plans for its Gateway National areas, including those pertaining to recreation, preservation and one that would look at “the coastal nature of the park,” Warren said. They are also looking at making no changes at all.“So, each of these (ideas) would steer our money, our planning, our resources, in some different direction over the next 20 years,” he said.The public can offer its take on the plans. “We think the people who use Sandy Hook or use Gateway Area are the best experts to help determine the future of the park,” he said.The National Park Service is establishing a Fort Hancock 21st Century Advisory Committee for Sandy Hook, under the Federal Advisory Committee Act (FACA). The group will take a long-term look at the future of the historic former military installation, located on the northern tip of Sandy Hook, Warren said.The last large-scale proposal for the fort was for the park service to form a partnership with a private developer to renovate and lease about 36 of the approximate 100 aging structures on the site for a variety of not-for-profit and for-profit uses. That plan, however, became mired in controversy and legal battles and NPS officials eventually terminated the relationship with the developer.Along with Sandy Hook, the park service will hold open houses at Gateway locations at Great Kills Park, Staten Island, N.Y., and Floyd Bennett Field, Brooklyn, N.Y.The U.S. Congress established the Gateway National Recreation Area in 1972 with more than 26,000 acres in Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island, N.Y., and at Sandy Hook, for recreational opportunities for a densely populated urban area.last_img read more
