Spieth (T-4) hoping for a little weekend chaos

first_imgAUGUSTA, Ga. – Compared to Thursday’s high-wire act, Jordan Spieth’s second round at his eighth Masters was as ho-hum as they come. There were five birdies, only one of which (No. 17) featured a make of more than 7 feet, and a single bogey at the old arch enemy 12th hole. He was putting for birdie on 14 of 18 greens and playing from the fairway on 11 of 14 holes. If Friday was Baskin-Robbins, Spieth’s 68 would have been a big scoop of vanilla. Most players would cherish that kind of tedium, but not Spieth. Spieth says he only wants boring rounds but that’s akin to a gambler who says he only wants safe bets. The 27-year-old relishes life in the margins and memories are rarely born from the mundane. Just look at the green jacket he won and those he’s lost. The final round of his 2015 triumph was a study in his extremes – six birdies, four bogeys over a fitful final round. The next year he birdied four consecutive holes before the turn to take the lead and then imploded with a bogey-bogey-triple bogey start to his second nine. 85th Masters Tournament: Full-field scores | Full coverage On Friday it was again the 12th hole that got him. After dumping his tee shot into the front bunker, he blasted to 6 feet from a bad lie and missed the par putt before tossing his golf ball into Rae’s Creek. “If any body of water is there, I’m going to throw it in the body of water and change to a new golf ball,” Spieth said. “I don’t want to look at that golf ball anymore, so it goes into the water and then I go to another ball.” Maybe it’s the emotion of the moment. Maybe it’s a heightened sense of accomplishment that comes with a round well-fought. Whatever it is, Spieth has always been more comfortable on the razor’s edge. Jordan Spieth just trying to build off ‘steady progress’ Even on the kind of cool and breezy Friday that reminds you of why they play this tournament in April and not, say, July or August, it was the hero stuff that he wanted to talk about. The make-it-up-as-you-go stuff like at the 13th hole after his drive sailed into the pines right of the fairway. “My 3-wood out of the trees on 13, I just kind of punch cut a 3-wood that was a really nice shot, set up a really great angle to make birdie, and if it comes out the wrong way I can make 6,” he said. “You look for moments that turn momentum; that was a good one for me.” Is that, turn momentum or ignite the imagination? It’s hard to say. Just to prove the point, Spieth was asked how he plays Augusta National differently now compared to his first tour he took around the old fruit nursery in 2014. “I think I actually play maybe even a little more aggressively now than I did then,” he shrugged. There was also a curious smirk when he was asked about the upcoming weekend and a forecast that promises to bring wind and rain and even more chaos. “I’m happy that the golf course has the opportunity to play more and more difficult over the weekend,” he said. “Personally, I’m looking forward to that kind of challenge, and I think that could be an advantage to me if I’m in control of the ball.” Had the pandemic not pushed last year’s Masters to the fall, Spieth probably wouldn’t have had the same edge. At this point last year, he was still searching for answers and something close to a repeatable swing. But all that has changed. Following months of trending in the right direction he won for the first time in more than three years on the PGA Tour last week in San Antonio and he arrived at Augusta National with a familiar swagger. He’s not all the way back, but in Spieth’s twisted formula that only makes things more entertaining. “I’m not in a place where I can say I’m standing up and just striping, but I’m in a place to where I’ve got it to where I can manage it and I can manage around this golf course,” he said. With the degree of difficulty only increasing over the weekend that puts Spieth right where he wants to be – on the edge.last_img read more

FBI offers $10K reward for information leading to the arrest of an alleged killer dad

first_imgRaghu_Ramaswamy/iStock(ROSWELL, N.M.) — More than two weeks after the body of a 27-year-old Roswell, New Mexico, woman was found strangled to death inside her home, the FBI has offered a $10,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of her boyfriend.Jorge Rico-Ruvira allegedly fled the state on Jan. 7 with his 3-year-old son Osciel Ernesto Rico, in tow, after Isela Mauricio-Sanchez was found by family members dead inside her home on the 600 block of East Forest Street.An Amber Alert was issued for the child, Chaves County Magistrate Court and the FBI each issued warrants for his arrest. Prosecutors charged the 32-year-old fugitive with first-degree murder and the feds filed charges for unlawful flight to avoid prosecution or giving testimony.The feds believe Rico-Ruvira is “involved” with the 27-year-old woman’s death, according to the agency’s press release issued on Wednesday. The couple had a history of domestic violence where Rico-Ruvira was charged in October 2019 with aggravated battery against a household member for allegedly choking her.Authorities believe Rico-Ruvira may be driving a maroon, four-door, 2003 GMC Yukon with New Mexico license plate MNF-231 and is heading to Mexico, where he has ties to the areas of Zacatecas and Jalisco, the FBI said.Anyone with information on Rico-Ruvira’s whereabouts is asked to immediately contact the FBI, (505) 889-1300, Roswell Police Department, (575) 624-6770 or the New Mexico Department of Public Safety Missing Persons Clearinghouse 1-800-457-3463.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

City council votes to ask California’s attorney general to investigate police-involved shooting at Walmart

first_imgSteve Taylor, 33, was shot and killed by a San Leandro police officer on April 18 during a mental health crisis, the family’s attorney said. – (Courtesy The Taylor Family)By CHRISTINA CARREGA, ABC News(SAN LEANDRO, Calif.) — A California city council unanimously voted this week to ask the state’s attorney general to step in and investigate the police-involved shooting death of Steven Taylor.Taylor, 33, was seen on video being repeatedly hit with stun guns by two San Leandro police officers and fatally shot by one inside a Walmart on April 18.The incident was captured on cellphone videos and the unidentified officers’ body cameras. About 30 seconds after the first officer reported to the store, Taylor was shot dead as several frantic shoppers were nearby.S. Lee Merritt, who represents Taylor’s family, previously told ABC News that Taylor was experiencing a “mental health crisis” while wielding a bat inside the store when a store’s worker called 911. Taylor’s grandmother said he was diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, since he was a preteen.The officers involved were placed on administrative leave — standard protocol in any officer-involved shooting, police saidThe San Leandro Police Department and Alameda County District Attorney are conducting separate investigations, but city council member Corina Lopez has been advocating for an independent investigation for a month.“I think it is important that there is transparency and that people feel confident that the process of the investigation has integrity. My aim is to have public trust and I believe an independent investigation can accomplish this,” Lopez, who represents Alameada, Oakland and San Leandro, told ABC News on Wednesday evening.The San Leandro City Council had a closed door session on Monday where Lopez’s motion — to send a letter to the state’s Attorney General Xavier Becerra requesting them to do an independent investigation into the police department’s use of deadly force against Taylor — was put on the table.Council member Victor Aguilar Jr. said he “quickly” seconded the motion and the rest of the council agreed to send the letter.“I want the public to know that we hear them, and that for some, having the district attorney investigate is not a direction they want this to go,” said Aguilar in a statement to ABC News on Thursday.“I am very happy that this vote was unanimous and there is a lot of leadership in this city behind this,” said Lopez.It’s unclear if the letter was written or sent to Becerra’s office as of Wednesday. However, if Becerra agrees to take on the case, the investigation will happen parallel to the other law enforcement agencies’ probes.“Our investigation is ongoing in this matter,” said Alameda County Assistant District Attorney Teresa Drenick in an email to ABC News on Wednesday.A spokesman with the San Leandro Police Department confirmed to ABC News on Wednesday that their investigation is still ongoing, but they have already started taking steps to change with “refresher courses on mental health training.”Lopez says she hopes that if all the investigations return with the same conclusions it will show the Taylor family and the community-at-large that their local representatives are being responsive and are honoring them.“This was a tragedy for the community … very difficult and painful,” said Lopez.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

Coronavirus live updates: US reports over 200,000 new cases for second time since pandemic started

first_imgSamara Heisz/iStockBy MORGAN WINSOR, ERIN SCHUMAKER, IVAN PEREIRA and EMILY SHAPIRO, ABC News(NEW YORK) — A pandemic of the novel coronavirus has now infected more than 64.5 million people and killed over 1.4 million worldwide, according to real-time data compiled by the Center for Systems Science and Engineering at Johns Hopkins University.Here’s how the news is developing Thursday. All times Eastern:Dec 03, 3:52 amUS reports over 200,000 new cases for second time since pandemic startedThere were 200,007 new cases of COVID-19 confirmed in the United States on Wednesday, according to a real-time count kept by Johns Hopkins University.It’s the 30th straight day that the United States has reported over 100,000 newly diagnosed infections, and only the second time since the start of the pandemic that the figure has exceeded 200,000. Wednesday’s count is just under the country’s peak of 205,557 new cases recorded last Friday, according to Johns Hopkins data.An additional 3,157 fatalities from COVID-19 were also registered nationwide on Wednesday, marking a new all-time high. It’s also the first time that the United States has reported more than 3,000 deaths from the disease in a single day. The latest daily death toll shatters the previous record of 2,609 new deaths on April 15, according to Johns Hopkins data.COVID-19 data over the past week and in the coming days may be skewed due to possible lags in reporting over Thanksgiving followed by a potentially very large backlog from the holiday.A total of 13,924,956 people in the United States have been diagnosed with COVID-19 since the pandemic began, and at least 273,835 of them have died, according to Johns Hopkins data. The cases include people from all 50 U.S. states, Washington, D.C., and other U.S. territories as well as repatriated citizens.Much of the country was under lockdown by the end of March as the first wave of pandemic hit. By May 20, all U.S. states had begun lifting stay-at-home orders and other restrictions put in place to curb the spread of the novel coronavirus. The day-to-day increase in the country’s cases then hovered around 20,000 for a couple of weeks before shooting back up over the summer.The numbers lingered around 40,000 to 50,000 from mid-August through early October before surging again to record levels, crossing 100,000 for the first time on Nov. 4 and reaching 200,000 for the first time on Nov. 27.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

NC police warn LGBTQ community after transgender women shot dead in hotels miles apart

first_imgkali9/iStock(CHARLOTTE, N.C.) — Two transgender women were found shot to death in hotel rooms just 11 days apart in Charlotte, North Carolina, prompting police to issue a warning that a suspect, or suspects, may be targeting other members of the LGBTQ community.The Charlotte-Mecklenburg police said at a press conference on Thursday that it’s unclear if the cases are connected, but both killings are similar.“Both of those victims … were transgender women, both of them were sex workers, both of them shot to death in hotels,” Charlotte-Mecklenburg police spokesman Rob Tufano said.On Easter Sunday, police discovered the body of Jaida Peterson, 29, in a hotel room in west Charlotte.Loved ones said she had been a sex worker for some time.“You’re so used to hearing about trans violence everywhere else,” Brittany Johnson, who was close to Peterson, told the Charlotte Observer. “But when it happens to your own sister, it brings another type of perspective to you. … That’s the hardest part for me — the person who took her life didn’t understand who she was.”Her funeral was held in South Carolina on Tuesday. According to the Human Rights Campaign, Peterson is the 14th transgender person killed nationwide in 2021.The second transgender woman was found shot to death on Thursday at a hotel about 10 miles away from where Peterson was found. Authorities are trying to reach that victim’s family before releasing her name.Tufano said the police department has been in contact with leadership from the city’s LGBTQ community.Trans women involved in sex work in the Charlotte area “have to know there has probably been never a more vulnerable time for them,” Tufano said. “They have to be hyper cautious, hyper vigilant.”Copyright © 2021, ABC Audio.
