Men’s Amateur Championship Final: Cope’s joy at trophy success

first_img2 Aug 2020 Men’s Amateur Championship Final: Cope’s joy at trophy success Tags: Callan Barrow, Jack Cope Jack Cope has revealed a deep sense of pride at adding his name to an illustrious list of winners at the English Men’s Amateur Championship.Gloucestershire golfer Cope today lifted the famous trophy thanks to a 4&3 victory over Lancashire’s Callan Barrow in a 36-hole final that produced some outstanding moments of golf in the Lincolnshire sunshine.Around the Hotchkin Course at Woodhall Spa Golf Club, Cope showed skill and nerve to fend off his friend and rival.After 18 holes of morning match play, Cope was five up helped by shooting a seven under round of 66 without a blemish on his card.Barrow – a member at Royal Lytham and St Anne’s Golf Club – can consider himself unlucky to shoot two under par in the morning and find himself with a mountain to climb.However, Cope’s ball-striking and his touch on the greens proved decisive and after racing six holes clear with nine holes to play the Players Club member was finally able to shake off his friend with three holes to spare.View the full tournament scores onlineCope, who celebrated his 21st birthday on Friday, was clearly emotional at the end of six days of competition.Over two rounds of strokeplay, only Joe Long of the 222 male competitors carded a lower two round total than Cope.And in the match play, the former England boys’ international was superb and deserved to end the week as national champion.“I’m absolutely thrilled to hear it,” admitted Cope after being announced as the winner.“It’s been a gruelling week, but I’m thankful and proud.“The morning round was very good. I was seven under and bogey free and this afternoon I kept my wits about me as Cal is an exceptional golfer and he made it a very good game.”Cope now joins the likes of Sir Nick Faldo, Tommy Fleetwood, Danny Willett and Paul Casey as a winner of the title and the significance of the win has yet to sink in.“It feels fantastic – I’m very honoured to be alongside the names on the trophy,” added Cope who had a spell away from the game after breaking his arm.“The last two years have been exceptionally tough on and off the golf course and I have to thank my parents, coach Russell Covey and Gloucestershire County Union and I hope this a big leap in the right direction.“I always knew I had ability, but it’s about producing it when it counts.“I played the West of England fourball at the weekend before this and was asked about my form.  I said a big win was close the way I was playing. I finished second in the stroke and won the match play.”In the morning, Barrow and Cope racked up a total of 10 birdies between them.Cope was quick out the traps and was four up through seven holes of the morning round thanks to birdies at the third, fifth, sixth and seventh.Barrow had barely put a foot wrong, but the quality on show from his 21-year-old opponent was impressive.A quality iron into the par three, eighth hole allowed Barrow to roll home a birdie putt from 15 foot and he followed that up with two more on the ninth and 10th holes to peg back Cope’s lead to just one.But Cope won both the 13th and 14th to restore his grip on the match and he never let it go.Barrow’s 10-footer down the slope at 18 grazed the hole, while Cope knocked his in from eight feet to take a five hole lead into lunch.Yet the Lancashire man (pictured above) refused to give up. He birdied the first hole of the afternoon to get one back, but then lost the next.A birdie two at the fifth offered hope again, but Barrow couldn’t quite reel in his man.Even when he found himself six down with nine to play in the afternoon his fighter’s instinct took over.A birdie at 10 and then another 14 kept the match alive. But a par four on the 15th sealed with a tricky six-foot putt down the slope clinched the title for Cope.Cope will now look to carry his form into the Brabazon Trophy later this month at Sherwood Forest after appearing to play all this week without nerves.“I’m glad it looked like that but it didn’t feel like that,” he said with a smile.“My attitude was the main thing.“I just kept plugging away and tried to keep hitting good golf shots.”“Cal’s a great guy and a great golfer. That’s the way it goes. I just played exceptionally well.”Catch up on all the videos from the 2020 English Amateur Championships herePhotography: Leaderboardlast_img read more

Dreamers Uneasy, But Hopeful, About DACA

first_imgBy John Burton |RED BANK — President Donald Trump’s action last week, laying the groundwork for the possible repeal of what is commonly called DACA, has its supporters. But it has others fearful for their future.“We’re not a whole load of bad people,” said 19-year-old Red Bank resident Javier Veliz, a self-described “dreamer” who now faces an uncertain future given the president’s move. “We’re here like everybody else, to acquire the American Dream.”Veliz has been living in the United States for 18 years, since his family entered the country without documentation from their native Guatemala. Because of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), President Barack Obama’s 2012 executive order, Veliz was able to get a valid driver’s license, work a job on the books paying state and federal taxes, and begin studying mechanical engineering at Brookdale Community College. “All these things that people take for granted,” he said.U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced on Sept. 5 that the president would be rescinding President Obama’s executive order within six months if Congress fails to act upon it. Should Trump carry through on his repeal, these young people could face the loss of employment and educational opportunities and possibly deportation for them and family members, since federal officials have access to their personal information from their initial DACA applications.No one who is not currently participating can enroll, and for existing participants everything is now on hold.Faced with congressional inaction on the long-languishing DREAM (Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors) Act, Obama in 2012 signed his executive order creating DACA. The order allowed those who came as minors (younger than 16) to the U.S. illegally with their families, to legally work, pursue higher education and apply for financial aid, and serve in the military, giving them access to the “American Dream,” hence the name “dreamers.” Proponents saw this as a humane way to help those who really had no part in violating immigration law lead productive lives.Opponents, such as Sessions when he was a U.S. senator, and Trump, called it a violation of the rule of law. Trump who, when he was on the campaign trail, criticized it as unconstitutional and an attempt to usurp Congress’ role in the immigration debate.Trump was facing pushback for not fulfilling his campaign pledge to repeal DACA, resulting in nine Republican state attorneys general bringing suit against the president. And Trump’s decision to repeal the Obama-era order met with approval from stalwart Trump supporters.Barbara Gonzalez, co-founder of the Bayshore Tea Party Group, a conservative grassroots organization operating in the Bayshore area, voiced support last week for the president’s action. In an email message Gonzalez said, “What President Trump is doing, by giving it to Congress to come up with a better plan, is the way it should be done and should have been done in the first place.”Gonzalez went on to say: “We must take care of our own country in order to be helpful to anyone else. We must fix the immigration system so it works better, but we cannot just allow people to come to our country illegally and act like it never happened…”But there was loud and substantial criticism for Trump’s move. It came from some fellow Republicans and political opponents, civil rights and advocacy groups from around the country, from the Catholic Church and other religious groups. “I don’t believe this decision represents the best of our national spirit or the consensus of the American people. This decision reflects only the polarization of our political moment,” said Archbishop Jose H. Gomez, Los Angeles, chair of the U.S. Council of Catholic Bishops’ Committee on Migration, in a released statement.Steve Bannon, former Trump chief strategist, criticized the Catholic groups for their criticism on the Sept. 10 episode of CBS’s “60 Minutes,” alleging the Church has “an economic interest in unlimited immigration, unlimited illegal immigration.”Frank Argote-Freyre, director of the Latino Coalition of New Jersey, a Freehold-based advocacy group, said this measure has the potential to disrupt the lives of approximately 22,000 in New Jersey who are participating in the DACA program. According to some sources, as many as 800,000 are registered nationally with the program.Argote-Freyre called DACA, “A lifeline, a thread of hope,” for many. Looking to repeal it, he added, “It just feels like a betrayal of American values…It’s heartbreaking, really.”Jocelyn Rojas is a 21-year-old Red Bank resident, a “dreamer” who, along with other area students from immigrant families, started the Del Otro Lado Club in the borough, which seeks to offer support and facilitate resources for the Latino community, hoping to build a bridge between Hispanics and the established community. Rojas said she knows of approximately 100 dreamers in Red Bank alone. “We’re all definitely worried about what could happen,” she said.“It’s improved my quality of life all around,” said Monica Urena, 21, a Red Bank resident, of DACA. She’s been able to get her driver’s license, which allowed her family to have a car and transportation; it’s allowed her to get a work permit and get a job; and as a Rutgers University student, majoring in international business, she was able to obtain an internship with a New York City financial firm. “I wouldn’t have been able to do any of that without it,” she said.Urena said a lot of her friends are worried the administration will repeal DACA. Urena’s concerns sometimes lead her to ask herself, “Why am I getting a degree if I’m not going to be able to get employed?”This is a work in progress and the last chapter is far from written. Trump himself, despite the strong rhetoric during his campaign, has lately moderated his words and tone on the Dreamers. “I have a great heart for the people we’re talking about, a great love for them,” he said last week during a White House meeting on tax reform. The president also maintained he would revisit the issue should Congress fail to address it legislatively.Argote-Freyre doesn’t hold out much hope for congressional action, given the lack of movement on the issue during both the George W. Bush and Obama administrations.  “Given that paralysis,” he said, “I don’t see what magically will change now.”For those young people in the Two River area who fear for their future, the strategy now is to make their voices heard and force Congress’ hand in finally addressing immigration issues.“I see these kids. They tell me they want a life, they want a future,” said Alvaro Aguilar, speaking of the younger generation he comes in contact with as he coaches soccer in his hometown of Red Bank. “And that’s why I will fight for this.”Alvaro Aguilar of Red Bank, right, and other members of the immigrant advocacy group Movimiento Cosecha demonstrated outside Trump Tower on New York’s Fifth Avenue last week and were arrested for failing to disperse.Aguilar, 29, has taken advantage of DACA to work and is involved with Movimiento Cosecha, a loose-knit, nationwide immigrant advocacy group. Aguilar and other members demonstrated out side Trump Tower on New York’s Fifth Avenue last week and were arrested for failing to disperse. “I wanted to do this for them, to let them know they’re not alone,” he said. “We’ve got to do this together.”The thought of DACA ending is upsetting to Urena. “DACA is an amazing program and it’s given me so much. But the reality is it’s a Band-Aid on a really big issue that needs to be addressed,” she said. “I’m hoping instead of this being a negative thing, it’s actually going to be the push we need for Congress to finally change and reform the immigration system.”On the legal front, Democratic state attorneys general from 16 states, led by New York’s Eric Schneiderman, have filed a lawsuit looking to block the reversal of Obama’s executive order establishing DACA. As part of their legal argument, the attorneys general allege, among other assertions, Trump has displayed in his public comments a racial animus toward some ethnic groups that have relied on the program, Schneiderman has told media outlets.They expect to make their initial arguments before a federal judge within the coming weeks, Schneiderman added.This article was first published in the Sept. 14-21, 2017 print edition of The Two River Times.last_img read more

Indonesian Hobbit No Numbskull

first_imgWhoever Homo florensiensis was (see 10/27/2004 entry), it was no dumb half-ape.  This miniature human packed a lot of brains into a small skull, says Michael Balter in Science1 (see also EurekAlert, National Geographic and BBC News).  A cast of the brain made from the skull shows complexity: convolutions in the frontal lobe suggest an intelligent mind, a revelation corroborated by the presence of stone tools and evidence of fire nearby.  Balter quotes an evolutionary anatomist on the implications: the new study “upsets one of our main concepts of human evolution, that brain size has to increase for humans to become clever.”  Another calls the finding “a real stunner.”    All the same, News&Nature is claiming this silences the critics, like Teuku Jacob (who took possession of the fossils till recently returning them) who claimed the creature was only a modern human suffering from the disease of microcephaly (small brain).  Yet with so few microcephalic skulls available for study, others are not sure Jacob’s claim has been discredited.  Because the fossil doesn’t resemble that of a pygmy or a microcephalic individual, many are ready to call it a new species of hominid.  But then, because its skull showed evidence of “advanced development of the front lobes of the brain, where reasoning occurs,” ([email protected]), it is hard to consider it primitive.  Paleoanthropologists are divided between explaining H. florensiensis as a degenerate form of modern human, or a case of “a small-brained, small-bodied, pre-erectus hominid managed to get to Flores in the distant past, and then, in a case of parallel evolution with modern humans, evolved a relatively advanced brain on its own.”    Balter quotes Fred Spoor (University College, London) giving the bottom line: “The real take-home message here is that advanced behaviors, like making sophisticated stone tools, do not necessarily require a large, modern, humanlike brain.  It can be done by reorganizing a small brain, with convolutions and rewiring, and this goes to the heart of our understanding of human evolution.”1Michael Balter, “Small but Smart?  Flores Hominid Shows Signs of Advanced Brain,” Science, Vol 307, Issue 5714, 1386-1389, 4 March 2005, [DOI: 10.1126/science.307.5714.1386a].Any evolutionists thinking they have an “Aha!” case of a missing-link fossil to discredit creationists have a slippery object to try to hang onto.  If brain size does not correlate with intelligence, then a century and a half of human-evolution storytelling goes down the drain.  Fine measurements of skull capacity were a staple of human phylogenetic studies; some, like Paul Broca (now considered a racist), made a career out of it.  It should have been obvious that even modern human “small people” like Tom Thumb could be smarter than local fatheads.  And didn’t we learn that birds, with much smaller brains, outwit chimpanzees? (see 02/01/2005 entry).    If hobbitkind were degenerate modern humankind, there is no evolution story to tell.  But if they evolved smart brains independently, in parallel with other upwardly-mobile hominids, then human evolution has been falsified twice (see 12/30/2004 entry).  Take your pick, Darwin Party.  If indeed “this goes to the heart of our understanding of human evolution,” it whacks it with a sharp stone tool.(Visited 15 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more
