Englishman leads the way at Ja Golf Open

first_imgWestern Bureau: Englishman Paul Eales holds the early lead at the 2017 Jamaica Open Golf Championship, taming the field at the picturesque Half Moon Course with a superb 4 under-par 68 to sit atop the leaderboard after day one in Montego Bay. His score was one stroke better than James Hazen of the United States, who fired a 3 under-par 69 to complete the round in second position, while three-time champion Johnny Bloomfield and Kenny Goodykoontz are tied for third after stroking 71. Eales, Hazen, Bloomfield and Goodykoontz were the only golfers to break par on a challenging opening day. Eales had three birdies on the front nine and added three more on the back nine for the one-stroke lead. Four others were tied for fifth, including Barbadian Alex Sandeman at Even-par 72, while Orville Christie ended the day as the best-placed Jamaican with a two over-par 74. Two other Jamaicans, Michael Rowe and Wesley Brown, are tied in fourth place on 4 over-par 76 heading into today’s second day. But on another windy day, it was Eales who found his touch early to move away from the field on the front nine before making three birdies on the last six holes to post best score of the round. “The course is in great shape … and I realised that after I birdied the first three holes and although the wind was making it really difficult. I managed to putt well on the green and finish well,” said Eales. “And, of course, the last six holes were something special, and to have round things off with three birdies was just dream stuff,” the 1991 Audi Open winner said. Eales made his move early with two quick birdies and never relinquished the lead. The course record at Half Moon is 7 under-par 65 by two-time Open winner Ross Cochran. Cochran won back-to-back titles in 2011 and 2012. Not concerned about the record, Eales told The Gleaner that he hopes to carry his fine putting form through the championship, while hoping for another fine day on today’s penultimate day. Meanwhile, in the amateur section, Jamaican Owen Samuda had a difficult time on the greens to finish the day with 3 over par 75, holding a three-stroke lead over compatriot Oshae Haye at six over for 78, the same as Canadian Robert Sterling. The championship continues today with the first tee-off time set for 7:30 a.m. Eales will be among the last to tee-off at 11 a.m.last_img read more

No need for lengthy border exam of Meng Wanzhou before her arrest

first_imgVANCOUVER — The defence team for a Huawei executive whose arrest at Vancouver’s airport sparked a diplomatic crisis between Canada and China says there was no good reason for border officials to detain her for almost three hours before her arrest. Scott Fenton, a defence lawyer for Meng Wanzhou, told the B.C. Supreme Court that border officials already knew that Meng was facing charges in the United States by the time she got off her flight from Hong Kong.He says that means officials also knew she would be arrested and taken before the courts, that they had no power to remove her and that they could already report her as inadmissible because of the allegations she faces in the U.S. Instead, Fenton says she was held for three hours and a border official questioned her about her business in Iran before she was informed of her arrest and read her rights.Meng was arrested Dec. 1, 2018, at the request of the United States, which is seeking her extradition on fraud charges in violation of sanctions with Iran.Both Meng and Chinese tech giant Huawei have denied any wrongdoing and none of the allegations have been tested in court.Fenton says border official recorded that passwords to her phones and relayed them to RCMP along with her electronic devices as evidence that her detention was not a routine border check but a “covert criminal investigation.”He argues the provisional arrest warrant calling for her “immediate” arrest should have taken precedence over an immigration examination.“There was no need for this lengthy examination of the applicant,” he told the court.Meng, who is the chief financial officer of Huawei and the daughter of the company’s founder, is free on bail and living in Vancouver.Meng’s legal team is asking the court to further documentation to support its argument that her arrest at Vancouver’s airport was unlawful ahead of her extradition trial, which is scheduled to begin in January.Canada’s attorney general has not yet presented its response in court, but documents show it will say officials followed the law when they detained Meng and the defence has no proof to substantiate its “conspiracy theory” that she was illegally arrested.This report from The Canadian Press was first published on Sept. 25, 2019.The Canadian Presslast_img read more
