Frost Crowned Carolinas PGA Professional Champion

(Mooresville, NC) – Charles Frost, PGA Head Professional at Old Town Club in Winson Salem, NC has won the 2017 Carolinas PGA Professional Championship. The tournament, hosted by Trump National Golf Club of Charlotte, concluded this afternoon after 54 holes of play began on Tuesday. Frost emerged as the victor after posting rounds of 69, 74 and 70 for a 3-under par total of 213 on the 7,183-yard par 72 Trump National.

With Frost’s victory comes a $9,000 first-place check and two added perks. He earns a spot in the 50th PGA Professional Championship to be held June 17-20, 2018 at Bayonet Black Horse in Seaside, CA. That championship field includes 312 of the best PGA Professional players across the country who will be attempting to finish in the top 20 and earn a bid to the 100th PGA Championship in 2018 at Bellerive Country Club in St. Louis, Missouri. Additionally Frost, as CPGA Professional Champion, will get his choice of an exemption into the PGA Tour’s Wells Fargo or Wyndham Championship. Interestingly, it is very likely that whichever of those he does not choose, he will get into anyway as the 2017 Bob Boyd CPGA Player of the Year, as he currently leads the points standings. The Player of the Year receives the other PGA Tour exemption, so if Frost wins that award, he would play in both the Wells Fargo & Wyndham Championship.


Along with Frost, eight other Carolinas PGA Professionals qualified for the 50th PGA Professional Championship, as the Carolinas Section received nine total qualifying spots into the field. The nine total professionals are:

·          Charles Frost, PGA

·          Matt Bova, PGA

·          Neal Lancaster, PGA

·          Matt Vick, PGA

·          Josh Webb, PGA

·          Scooter Buhrman, PGA

·          Chris Haarlow, PGA

·          Steve Isley, PGA

·          Andrew Bateman, PGA

Scot given three-month jail sentence for touching Dubai man's hip

Scot given three-month jail sentence for touching Dubai man's hipA British man has been sentenced to three months in prison in Dubai for touching a man's hip in a bar, according to campaigners. Jamie Harron, from Stirling, was arrested in July over the incident in which he said he put his hand on a man's hip to avoid spilling a drink in a crowded bar. The 27-year-old electrician had been working in Afghanistan and was on a two-day stopover in the United Arab Emirates at the time. After his arrest for public indecency he lost his job and was told he could have faced up to three years in jail. Campaign group Detained in Dubai (DiD) said he was sentenced to three months imprisonment at court on Sunday but lawyers plan to appeal. The group said Mr Harron is "angry, disappointed, and dreads what may happen next". He is not currently in custody while the appeal is considered, DiD chief executive Radha Stirling said. Mr Harron has already been sentenced in absentia to 30 days in prison for failing to appear at a court hearing for making a rude gesture and drinking alcohol during the same July incident. Unusual laws that tourists should be wary of DiD said the 27-year-old was not told about the court date in advance and that sentence is also being appealed against. In relation to the alleged public indecency charge, Mr Harron is said to have been holding a drink, moving through a crowded bar and held a hand in front of him to avoid spilling it on himself or others. He then "touched a man on his hip to avoid impact". He was initially jailed for five days and then released on bail with his passport confiscated. Ms Stirling said: "Now Jamie has been sentenced to three months; there is no telling whether a judgement on appeal will be better or worse. "He has already suffered tremendously as a result of these allegations, and now faces the likelihood of incarceration. "His family was unable to visit him during this critical time because they faced a very real risk of imprisonment themselves under the UAE's cyber crime laws which forbid criticism of the government. "At this point, Jamie will definitely be pursuing civil action against his accusers when he does eventually return home, as it appears that he will not be able to find justice in the UAE." She added: "He feels betrayed and exploited by the system, which did not investigate the reports of key witnesses in his defence and led him to believe that the case would be dropped." A spokeswoman for the Foreign Office said: "We have been in contact with a British man following his arrest in Dubai in July. We are providing consular assistance."

White supremacist saved by black protester after being punched at anti-Nazi march

White supremacist saved by black protester after being punched at anti-Nazi marchWearing a white T-shirt emblazoned with swastikas, Randy Furniss, hands in his pockets, walked slowly through a crowd Thursday that had largely gathered to protest white nationalist Richard Spencer, who was delivering a speech at the University of Florida. Days before Florida Gov. Rick Scott, R, had warned in an executive order that a "threat of a potential emergency is imminent" in Alachua County, where the University of Florida is located, noting that prior speaking engagements involving Spencer have sparked protest and violence. The event was Spencer's first public speech on a college campus since he led hundreds of torch-bearing white supremacists, white nationalists and others through the University of Virginia in a far-right rally in August that preceded a weekend of violent protests in Charlottesville.

The Fighter that Replaces the F-35 Could Be Armed with Lasers and Hypersonic Missiles

The Fighter that Replaces the F-35 Could Be Armed with Lasers and Hypersonic MissilesSmart skins with distributed electronics means that instead of having systems mounted on the aircraft, you would have apertures integrated on the skin of the aircraft, analysts have said. Some of these characteristics may have been on display earlier this year when Northrop Grumman's SuperBowl AD revealed a flashy first look at its rendering of a new 6th-generation fighter jet. The new aircraft, engineered to succeed the 5th-generation F-35 Joint Strike Fighter and explode onto the scene by the mid 2030s, is now in the earliest stages of conceptual development with the Air Force and Navy.

Politically charged murder trial of Mexican immigrant starts in San Francisco

Politically charged murder trial of Mexican immigrant starts in San Francisco(Reuters) - The trial of a Mexican man accused of murdering a woman while illegally in the United States began in San Francisco on Monday, a case that President Donald Trump has cited as an example of the dangers posed by lax border security. Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez, also known as Jose Ines Garcia Zarate, has said he shot Kate Steinle by accident on a pier in the California city on July 1, 2015. "He did not know the object in his hand was a gun," Matt Gonzalez, an attorney for the defendant, was quoted as saying by NBC Bay Area before he headed into the courtroom.
