Us open where is it being played
Sally Jenkins, The Washington Post Published 8:10 pm, Sunday, June 17, 2018 SOUTHAMPTON, N.Y. - Brooks Koepka warned everybody. Anyone who wanted the U.S. Open trophy would have to pry it out of his clenched, brawny arms. "I feel like you got to kind of take it from me, to be honest with you," he said. They tried in all manner of ways to get it from him, none more so than Englishman Tommy Fleetwood, who nearly pickpocketed it with his early record-tying 63. Koepka withstood it all to become the first repeat winner in nearly 30 years. Koepka had the swagger of a linebacker and the face of a rock formation, and he needed both to deal with the various pressures of this Open. There was that chronic ruffling wind. There was the course itself, the par-70 Shinnecock Hills, built like a series of switchbacks. There was the stress of fighting back from 7 over par, which was where Koepka found himself in the second round. There was the torment inflicted by the U.S. Golf … [Read more...] about For Koepka, US Open win is twice as nice

(USL East Bay) Stating their intentions to grow pro soccer throughout the East Bay and Northern California, USL East Bay announced today that they intend to pursue not only one but two professional soccer teams in Oakland and Concord.

MORNING MINDMELD: Poll after poll shows tightening swing states and a tied national race, which matters because it affects voter enthusiasm: People want to be with a winner, so you don’t want to be too far down; but complacency kills, so you don’t want to be too far up. One of the Playbook Rules for Living: Momentum matters – in sports, in dating, and definitely in politics. The momentum shift has been slow to sink in for Romney aides, who haven’t exactly been pessimistic, but have been “not optimistic” for weeks, even months. Looking ahead to tonight’s foreign-policy debate in Boca Raton, a Romney official told us over the weekend: “If Mitt shows that he's credible on foreign policy, looks and sounds like a leader, the President is in trouble. Things are not going his way. Nobody is writing the story that Mitt is up. … “Funny enough, a lot of people who support Mitt aren't allowing themselves to embrace the reality of … [Read more...] about ROMNEY HAS BIG MO; OBAMA HAS THE MAP — Mitt on offense; POTUS on defense — But is it spring of ’08? — Rosen, Cutter, Barbour, J.

PARIS - Europe has for 30 years allowed most of its citizens to travel freely from one country to the next, but the experiment in open borders is now facing calls for its end amid several new threats. "We face a diffuse terrorist threat trying to attack our values," French Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve told an emergency meeting of foreign ministers from France, Germany, Spain, Italy and other European nations, who met in Paris to deal with terrorism and improve security in the wake of the attack by gunman Ayoub El-Khazzani on the Amsterdam-Paris Thalys train last week. At the heart of the discussion was whether or not the European Union border policy of free travel, known as "Schengen," can survive the waves of growing attacks against civilians in Europe. The "perfect storm," as a European diplomat called it, has hit Europe: terrorism, a migration crisis, and crime. Although they are not directly connected, the perception among many seasoned Europe observers is that the free … [Read more...] about CBS News Logo Europe’s open-border policy may be nearing its end
In this excerpt from his new memoir, "What Is It All but Luminous: Notes From an Underground Man" (Knopf), singer Art Garfunkel writes of his early fascination with radio, rock 'n' roll, and a fellow classmate named Paul Simon. Watch Rita Braver's interview with Art Garfunkel on CBS' "Sunday Morning" November 5! On Saturday mornings, in 1953, in Keds sneakers, white on white, I took my basketball to P.S. 164. We played half-court ball, three on three. Or else I listened to Martin Block's Make-Believe Ballroom on the radio. I loved to chart the top thirty songs. It was the numbers that got me. I kept meticulous lists -- when a new singer like Tony Bennett came onto the charts with "Rags to Riches." I watched the record jump from, say, #23 to #14 in a week. The mathematics of the jumps went to my sense of fun. I was commercially aware through the Hit Parade, as well as involved in the music. Johnny Ray's "Cry," the Crewcuts' "Sha-boom," Roy Hamilton ballads, "Unchained Melody" … [Read more...] about Book excerpt: Art Garfunkel’s “What Is It All but Luminous”
