first_img England Golf is seeking talented youngsters from across the country to form 30 regional coaching squads for training over the winter months of 2014/15.Young golfers should apply now for the boys’ and girls’ U16 regional coaching programme and the mixed U18 AASE regional coaching squads.If their initial application is successful, they will be invited to one of the regional squad selection weekends in September which will include skills tests, player profiling and on-course ability assessment.Players selected for the squads will receive 20 days of squad coaching, individual sessions and match days plus an equivalent of 10 days of physical development. This mirrors the pattern of the successful 2013/14 coaching programme.“The regional squad structure continues to go from strength to strength” commented Stephen Burnett, Performance Manager for the England Golf men’s programme.“The mix of squad time, individual coaching and then the opportunity to compete against neighbouring regions has been very well received. Add to that the opportunity to further their physical training and England Golf is providing a sound foundation for the development of our young players.”Nigel Edwards, England Golf’s Performance Director, added: “We aim to give our talented young players the best golf development experience available.“In return, we expect the players to commit themselves to a programme of golf coaching and physical training that will set them up for life.

Anton Haig: golf’s next big thing?

first_img7 February 2007Twenty-year-old South African Anton Haig moved into the top 100 of the official world golf rankings by winning the prestigious Johnnie Walker Classic at the Blue Canyon Country Club in Phuket at the weekend.His victory saw him join the likes of Ernie Els, Retief Goosen, Greg Norman, Tiger Woods and Nick Faldo as winners of the event. His impressive performance also captured the attention of many of the game’s top players and commentators, including Sky Sports’ respected Ewen Murray.Murray says he puts Haig in the John Daly class for driving distance. That’s quite a statement, but it is the kind of statement that will draw golf fans to take a look at the young South African’s game. After all, powering drives way, way down the fairway is the most eye-catching aspect of golf.European Ryder Cup star Darren Clarke, a regular visitor to South Africa, is equally impressed, if not more so, by Haig. He reckons Haig hits the ball “miles” and has “a great short game”.A future major winnerIn fact, Clarke feels Haig has it all and is a future major winner in the making.He’s not the only Ryder Cup player to laud the rising star. Both Lee Westwood and David Howell expressed the opinion that Haig will become a top-10 ranked player.Haig’s win in Phuket, the most prestigious of the four he has so far claimed in his short career, was as much a victory for his parents as it was for his Haig. While he was growing up his father took a job managing a farm so as to raise the funds to send young Anton to amateur tournaments. That kept dad away from home, but today he surely feels the sacrifice was worth it.Both Haig’s parents were in Thailand to witness him sink the birdie putt that won him the tournament. It also secured him a much sought after European Tour exemption until the end of 2009.Inspired by Els and GoosenIf Westwood and Howell are correct in their assessments that Haig will become a top-10 player, then he will be venturing into an area currently occupied by Ernie Els and Retief Goosen. The 20-year-old says he draws inspiration from the two South African major winners.Speaking after his victory at the Blue Canyon Country Club, he told reporters: “Ernie and Retief have been my heroes. They are awesome players and put a bit of ‘oomph’ for me to get to the top. They have great fighting spirit and never give up.”Growing up, says Haig, he eagerly followed their exploits, taking every opportunity to see them in the flesh when they played in South African events.Prior to the Johnnie Walker Classic, he had the opportunity to play a practice round with Els and Goosen, “What an experience!” he said. “I had never played with them before.”Els and Goosen impressedIt appears both the Big Easy and the Goose are equally impressed with Haig. After the Johnnie Walker Classic, Els predicted a big future for him, remarking on his booming drives, which he said are among the biggest in the game.“He’s very young, 20, and a big guy, even bigger than me. He hits it longer than I do. It’s a matter of getting experience and just playing,” said Els.Goosen, too, praised Haig’s driving ability, reckoning the young man powers the ball 20 to 30 yards further than he does. Goosen went on to remark that golf today is about length, and said once Haig gets that under control, “he’ll be good”. Coming from a man who is known for understating things, that is high praise.Goosen also commented on Haig’s positive, friendly approach to golf, noting that it is good for the game. The irony is that Haig described both Els and Goosen as down to earth. Yes, down to earth and brilliant golfers, much the same as he is.By breaking into the top 100 of the official world golf rankings, Haig became the seventh South African to crack the barrier, behind Els, Goosen, Trevor Immelman, Tim Clark, Rory Sabbatini and Charl Schwartzel.

You’re the Backup: Pirate Bay Archive Available for Download

Gujarat Cong. starts Gandhi Sandesh Yatra

first_imgThe Congress in Gujarat began the Gandhi Sandesh Yatra from Porbandar and Dandi to Sabarmati Ashram on Friday to commemorate the 150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi.Porbandar is the birthplace of the Father of the Nation while coastal village Dandi in Navsari district is associated with the Salt March led by Gandhi in 1930 against the British regime.“These marches, under a week-long ‘Gandhi Sandesh Yatra’ have been launched on Friday and will culminate at Sabarmati Ashram in Ahmedabad on October 2,” said State Congress president Amit Chavda, who led the march from Dandi. Another march from Porbandar was led by leader of the opposition Paresh Dhanani and other senior party leaders.“Dandi to Sabarmati is 368 km while Porbandar to Sabarmati is 412 km. Participants of both marches will first converge at Kocharab Ashram in Ahmedabad, started by Mahatmma Gandhi, and from there they will hold a 8-km-long foot march to Sabarmati Ashram,” said Gujarat Congress-in-charge Rajeev Satav. “Our idea is to spread the message of Mahatma Gandhi while celebrating his 150th birth anniversary at a time when the ruling dispensation is making all efforts to impose the ideology of Bapu’s assassin Nathuram Godse,” he added.Mr. Chavda charged the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh and Bharatiya Janata Party of trying to destroy the ideology of non violence and communal harmony that Mahatma Gandhi had propagated during the freedom movement. During the marches, Congress members will organise ‘satsangs’ (discourse) and bhajans to spread the message of communal harmony and social unity. The party’s Gujarat unit will also organise seminars, debates and essay competitions in schools and colleges on topics related to Mahatma Gandhi and his life.“During the British Raj, the country faced the problem of social inequality, communal polarisation, poverty, atrocities on women and weaker sections. There were attempts to target a certain section, and keep the poor and farmers out of the mainstream. The rulers of today are acting in a manner that will even put the British Raj to shame,” Mr. Chavda said.last_img read more



BC Oil & Gas Commission completes aerial survey on decommissioned wells

first_imgFORT NELSON, B.C. – The B.C. Oil & Gas Commission has recently completed an aerial survey that looked at 104 decommissioned gas wells east of Fort Nelson.As part of a mandate to ensure the integrity of decommissioned wells, the Commission says they have been conducting aerial surveys for the past three years using a laser-based methane detector mounted on the underside of a helicopter.By using the detector, it allowed for easy access to sites in difficult and inaccessible terrain, in a fast, cost-effective manner. The OGC says the long-term goal of this program is to obtain a representative sampling of decommissioned wells throughout Northeast B.C.During a survey in July, the OGC says they were able to identify four well sites where methane was detected. Following the detection, the OGC took the required actions to ensure that they are not leaking.The Commission says it intends to continue the aerial inspection program annually,focusing on different areas throughout the Northeast.last_img read more
