Jason Day holds on to win Wells Fargo Championship (Associated Press) - May 7, 2018 - 11:24am CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Jason Day birdied two of his final three holes Sunday (Monday Manila time) for a 2-under 69 and a two-shot victory over Aaron Wise and Nick Watney in the Wells Fargo Championship, his second victory this year. After squandering a three-shot lead on the back nine, Day rolled in a 20-foot birdie putt on the 16th hole and then effectively won the tournament when his tee shot on the 230-yard 17th hole crashed into the flagstick and settled 3 feet away. He was the only player to make birdie on No. 17 at Quail Hollow in the final round, and it staked him to a two-shot lead. Wise, a PGA Tour rookie, saved par on his last two holes for a 68. Watney made a 59-foot birdie putt on the last hole for a 69 and his best finish in three years. Day finished at 12-under 272 and returns to the top 10 in the world. Tiger Woods was … [Read more...] about Jason Day holds on to win Wells Fargo Championship
It is a startling statistic which beggars belief, but the truth is there are more tigers living in captivity in the US than survive in the wild in their natural habitat in Asia -- several sub-species are already extinct, and those that remain cling on in their last bastions. They have some prominent champions -- including the Russian President and the governments of Cambodia and Kazakhstan -- and there are some positive signs with India reporting an increase in numbers. There is no room for complacency. Far from it. The tiger's closest and most famous cousin, the African lion, is the subject of sad news, setting alarm bells ringing. Lion numbers are reported to have fallen by 40 per cent in just two decades, with the lion now only occupying 17 per cent of its historic range -- and the "King of the Beasts" faces the prospect of being dethroned. And even if some tiger populations are recovering, they are a long way from the levels seen at the start of the 20th century -- before … [Read more...] about World Wildlife Day 2018: Tigers, lions under threat?
The survey of more than 100 tiger conservation areas, where an estimated 70 per cent of the world’s wild tigers live, found that only 13 per cent of them are able to meet global standards. This is according to a joint statement from the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) and Conservation Assured | Tiger Standards (CA|TS), an accreditation system designed to measure and improve the management of tiger conservation areas, issued yesterday. At least one-third of the areas are severely at risk of losing their tigers. Alarmingly, most of these sites are in Southeast Asia, where tigers have suffered the most dramatic decline in the past decade. Reassuringly, two-thirds of the areas surveyed reported fair to strong management. Yet, basic needs, such as enforcement against poaching, engaging local communities and managing conflict between people and wildlife, remain weak for all areas surveyed. “Ineffective management of tiger conservation areas leads to tiger … [Read more...] about Tigers at risk in SE Asian reserves, says survey
