Masters: Five-way tie for lead late in final round

Sun, 04/14/2019 - 09:09

AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) — The Latest on the final round Sunday at the Masters (all times local):

1:45 p.m.

The leaderboard is changing so fast on the back nine of the Masters it's hard to keep track of the leaders.

There's a five-way tie for the lead in the final round with Dustin Johnson, Xander Schauffele, Brooks Koepka, Francesco Molinari and Tiger Woods all at 12-under.

Augusta National has stayed dry, but rain is bearing down on the course and could play a factor on the final holes.

Jason Day and Rickie Fowler are one shot back.

___

12:45 p.m.

Four contenders hit their tee shots at No. 12 into Rae's Creek. Xander Schauffele and Tiger Woods stayed dry and are now tied for the lead with Francesco Molinari.

Molinari, Tony Finau, Ian Poulter and Brooks Koepka all hit the water on the 155-yard par-3. The wind has picked up at Augusta National over the last few hours with potential thunderstorms bearing down on the course.

All four made the same mistake, leaving their shot short and watching it roll down the hill into the water.

That left an opening for Woods, who put his tee shot on the green. He made par and is now in a three-way tie for the lead with Schauffele and Molinari.

___

12:10 p.m.

Tiger Woods remains in contention to win his first Masters since 2005 with nine holes left to play in the final round.

The 43-year-old Woods is one shot behind leader Francesco Molinari, who is trying to win his second major title.

Woods played the front nine in 1-under while Molinari is at even par for the day.

Brooks Koepka and Tony Finau are two shots back.

Augusta National has remained dry though the wind has picked up. The weather forecast calls for possible thunderstorms to roll through by mid-afternoon.

___

11:30 a.m.

Francesco Molinari's lead has been sliced to just one shot over Tiger Woods.

Molinari made a bogey on No. 7 and Woods had a birdie for a two-shot swing. Molinari had gone 49 straight holes without a bogey before missing the 15-foot par putt.

Molinari is now at 12-under for the tournament and Woods it at 11-under. Brooks Koepka is also within one shot of the lead at 11-under.

___

10:50 a.m.

Steady Francesco Molinari has made par on his first five holes and now has a three-shot lead during the final round of the Masters.

Tiger Woods briefly pulled one shot behind Molinari after a birdie on No. 3, but fell back to three behind after bogeys on Nos. 4 and 5.

Tony Finau, who is playing in the final group with Molinari and Woods, also bogeyed No. 5. Finau, Woods and Brooks Koepka are all three shots back.

Patrick Cantlay and Ian Poulter are four shots back.

___

9:30 a.m.

Bryson DeChambeau has made a hole-on-one on No. 16 in the final round at the Masters.

DeChambeau was one of the co-leaders after Thursday's first round after shooting a 66, but fell way off the pace with a 75 and 73 over the next two days.

His shot on the 170-yard hole hit the green well to the right of the hole, but had some backspin and slowly rolled left until it fell into the cup .

It's DeChambeau's first hole-in-one on tour.

The tournament's final group — Francesco Molinari, Tony Finau and Tiger Woods — teed off at 9:20 a.m. All of them made par on the first hole.

___

8:25 a.m.

The final round of the Masters will be a race against the rain.

A powerful line of thunderstorms has swept across the South over the past few days and the rain has already made it to the outskirts of Atlanta, which is approximately 145 miles to the west of Augusta.

Conditions on Sunday morning at Augusta National weren't bad, with overcast skies and relatively calm winds.

But the weather is forecast to deteriorate as the day progresses, with wind building and a line of storms approaching by mid-afternoon. The leaders — Francesco Molinari, Tony Finau and Tiger Woods — are scheduled to tee off at 9:20 a.m.

Molinari has a two-shot lead over Finau and Woods at 13-under 203.

___

7:45 a.m.

Tiger Woods waking up early Sunday morning to play the final round of the Masters ordinarily would mean he is at the bottom of the leaderboard.

That wasn't the case this year.

Francesco Molinari takes a two-shot lead over Woods and Tony Finau into a first-ever Sunday morning start — threesomes off the first and 10th tees — with hopes of finishing the Masters ahead of severe storms in the forecast.

Floodlights cast shadows on the practice range as players warmed up in darkness. Woods, trying to end 14 years without a green jacket, said he would be up by 4 a.m. to start stretching a body that has been slowed by four back surgeries.

Woods, Brooks Koepka and Dustin Johnson were among 10 players within five of the lead.

2 children dead, many homes damaged as storms pummel South

Sat, 04/13/2019 - 17:41

DALLAS — Powerful storms that rolled across the South on Saturday spawned at least two suspected tornadoes, damaged homes and killed two children in Texas, authorities said.

The Angelina County Sheriff's Office said an 8-year-old and a 3-year-old died when strong winds toppled a tree onto the back of their family's car in Lufkin while it was in motion. Capt. Alton Lenderman said the parents, who were in the front seats, were not injured.

Lufkin is about 115 miles northeast of Houston. Additional information was not immediately available.

In Central Texas, Robertson County Sheriff Gerald Yezak told The Associated Press a tornado hit the small city of Franklin, overturning mobile homes and damaging other residences. Franklin is located about 125 miles south of Dallas.

The National Weather Service said preliminary information showed an EF-3 tornado touched down with winds of 140 mph. Crews will continue to survey the damage over the next few days.

Two people were hospitalized for injuries not thought to be life-threatening, while others were treated at the scene for minor injuries, Yezak said. Some people had to be extricated from their homes.

Weather service meteorologist Monique Sellers said they've received reports of downed trees, as well as damage to buildings and a transmission tower.

The storms are part of a large system moving through the southern United States, knocking out power to thousands and causing some flash flooding. The weather service said the system is expected to shift to the Ohio Valley and the Southeast on Sunday.

Meteorologist John Moore said a possible twister touched down Saturday in the Vicksburg, Mississippi, area. No injuries have been reported, but officials said several businesses and vehicles were damaged.

Winds of up to 60 mph were reported in Cherokee County, Texas, damaging two homes in Alto but not injuring anyone. Alto is situated about 140 miles north of Houston.

Potential for severe weather in central Ohio on Sunday

Sat, 04/13/2019 - 15:58

There is potential for severe weather in central Ohio on Sunday.

The NOAA National Weather Service Storm Prediction Center has parts of the area under an Enhanced Risk for stronger storms.

Right now the biggest threat for central Ohio is damaging winds but some hail and possibly an isolated tornado (likely a spin-up along a line of storms) cannot be ruled out.

The SPC gives Southern and SE Ohio a 30% chance for significant weather within 25 miles of a given point.

The timing of the event looks tricky.

That is because some showers and storms will be possible early in the day with another batch redeveloping in the afternoon.

If the sunlight is low, that will limit our chances but any clearing we get will destabilize the atmosphere enough to spark off some stronger storms.

As of Saturday evening, it looks like the best chance for any stronger storms will likely be in the 2 p.m. to 8 p.m. time frame.

Sunday tee times for the Masters changed due to possibility of severe weather

Sat, 04/13/2019 - 15:42

AUGUSTA, Ga. - The tee times for the final round of the Masters on Sunday have been adjusted due to the possibility of severe weather.

The Masters said players will be in groups of three and start at 7:30 a.m. on the first and tenth holes.

The leaders will start at 9:20 a.m., which is about six hours earlier than a normal final round at the Masters.

CBS will broadcast the final round live and coverage will start at 9 a.m.

CBS said CBS Sunday Morning and Face the Nation will be preempted.

Assuming there are no delays, the final round should end about 2:30 p.m.

“The safety of everyone on our grounds is paramount,” said Fred Ridley, Chairman of Augusta National Golf Club and the Masters Tournament.

“We also believe the earlier start will give us the best opportunity to complete the Masters on Sunday. This decision should benefit everyone – the players, our patrons and our fans watching around the world. Given the competitiveness and drama of this year’s Tournament, we look forward to an exciting conclusion tomorrow.”

Sat, 04/13/2019 - 13:59

PAINESVILLE, Ohio — A man who struck and killed an Ohio police officer directing traffic and then fled the scene has been sentenced to 11 years in prison.

A judge on Friday handed down the maximum sentenced to 25-year-old Brian Anthony, of Kirtland.

Authorities say Anthony struck 41-year-old Mentor police officer Mathew Mazany around 1 a.m. June 24 as Mazany assisted with a traffic stop on a Lake County freeway.

Anthony surrendered to police later that day. A Lake County assistant prosecutor said Anthony tested positive for alcohol and heroin.

At his sentencing, Anthony apologized to the officer's family.

His defense attorney said Anthony bought what he thought was cocaine, but it turned out to be fentanyl.

Babysitter convicted in Ohio toddler's 2018 death

Sat, 04/13/2019 - 13:33

HAMILTON, Ohio — An Ohio babysitter charged with murder in a 3-year-old girl's death has been convicted of the child's death.

The Hamilton-Middletown News-Journal reports that a jury convicted Lindsay Partin late Friday of murder, involuntary manslaughter and child endangering.

The 36-year-old Partin had pleaded not guilty and her attorney argued that detectives bullied a confession out of her and then stopped investigating other leads.

Sentencing was set for May 9. Partin faces life in prison with the possibility of parole after 15 years.

Emergency crews responded March 8, 2018, to Partin's Hanover Township residence for an unconscious child. Authorities say they found Hannah Wesche unresponsive with bruises.

Court documents say Partin told dispatchers the girl had fallen recently and "just passed out." The girl died March 18, 2018.

Group asks gov't to probe Nissan automatic emergency braking

Sat, 04/13/2019 - 11:20

DETROIT — A U.S. auto safety group wants the government to investigate automatic emergency braking on some Nissan Rogue SUVs, alleging that the safety feature makes the vehicles brake even when there's no emergency.

The nonprofit Center for Auto Safety filed a petition with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration seeking the probe. The group says about 675,000 Rogues from the 2017 and 2018 model years should be recalled.

Nissan says it has notified all customers of a software update that improves the performance of the automated braking system. But the center says the campaigns don't acknowledge the seriousness of the safety problem and give owners little incentive to get the SUVs fixed.

In a letter posted Friday by the government, center Executive Director Jason Levine says it found 87 complaints about unintended braking in the safety administration's database. "Many complaints indicate that braking is abrupt or forceful, endangering both the Rogue occupants as well as people in the vehicles nearby who are forced to avoid a collision with a suddenly stopped vehicle," the letter says.

Automatic emergency braking uses cameras and radar to slow or stop vehicles when drivers don't take action. The technology has great potential to save lives, but it also can develop glitches. Twenty automakers representing 99 percent of U.S. new-car sales signed a voluntary agreement with the government to make the feature standard on all light vehicles by Sept. 1, 2022.

In its petition, the center said that according to the complaints, the Nissan braking system can be triggered by railroad tracks, traffic lights, bridges, parking structures "and other fixed objects that do not pose a threat to the vehicle."

In an email, Levine said a recall is needed rather than Nissan's service campaign because false activation of the braking system is a safety hazard. He wrote that some drivers are turning off the technology because of the problem.

NHTSA said in documents that it will evaluate whether to grant or deny the center's petition. Safety advocates and vehicle owners can petition the government to open safety investigations.

Nissan said it will continue to work with NHTSA and Canadian safety regulators on all matters of product safety.

Endangered whale experiencing mini-baby boom off New England

Sat, 04/13/2019 - 11:06

An endangered species of whale is experiencing a mini-baby boom in New England waters, researchers on Cape Cod have said.

The North Atlantic right whale is one of the rarest species of whale on the planet, numbering only about 411. But the Center for Coastal Studies in Provincetown, Massachusetts, said Friday its aerial survey team spotted two mom and calf pairs in Cape Cod Bay a day earlier. That brings the number seen in New England waters alone this year to three.

That's big news because the whale's population has been falling, and no calves were seen last year. In all, seven right whale calves have been seen so far this year.

The whales give birth off Georgia and Florida in the winter and travel to feeding grounds off New England in the early spring, including the Gulf of Maine, a body of water that touches Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Maine and Canada.

Cape Cod Bay is part of the Gulf of Maine and is a critically important feeding ground. The animals often feed close to shore, providing watchers on land "unbeatable views of one of the rarest of marine mammals," the Center for Coastal Studies said in a statement.

It's illegal to get within 1,500 feet (457 meters) of the animals without a federal research permit, so boaters are discouraged from attempting to get close to the whales.

Cut melon sold in Ohio linked to US salmonella outbreak recalled

Sat, 04/13/2019 - 10:56

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — An Indianapolis-based company has issued a recall for melon products sold in 16 states after being linked to a salmonella outbreak.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration said Friday that the recall includes cut watermelon, honeydew and cantaloupe produced by Caito Foods LLC. The fruit has been sold under various brands or labels at Kroger, Walmart, Trader Joe's, Target and Whole Foods.

The affected states are Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, West Virginia and Wisconsin.

Health officials advise consumers to check packaging to determine if the melon was distributed by Caito Foods, and, if so, not to eat it. They advise stores to pull the products from shelves.

Authorities say 93 people have been sickened, 23 of whom were hospitalized. No deaths have been reported.

Salmonella Carrau is described as rare. Symptoms include diarrhea, fever and abdominal cramps.
