Miguel Tabuena edged Angelo Que in a gripping high-noon shootout and captured the Aboitiz Invitational crown with another impeccable display of shotmaking and putting, becoming the first winner of the inaugural PGT Asia Tour at the Manila Southwoods in Carmona, Cavite on Friday.

In a brief stretch, Andrew looked headed to spoiling the country’s top guns’ impending mano-a-mano, wresting control after four holes. But he stumbled with a bogey on the next and Tabuena hit three straight birdies from No. Michael Bibat rallied with the day’s best 64 – and one of the tournament’s three eight-under cards, including five straight birdies from No.

Thursday’s tweet also suggested Trump actually believes a story that many historians say is apocryphal. Trump first sent out a tweet offering aid to Spain after Thursday’s van attack in Barcelona that left at least 13 dead and more than 50 wounded. About an hour later, Trump tweeted: “Study what General Pershing of the United States did to terrorists when caught. “You heard that, right?” Trump said as a candidate during a rally in February 2016 in South Carolina, alluding to the pig blood part. Twenty-five years, there wasn’t a problem,” Trump said.
SEOUL: After North Korea and the United States traded bellicose threats of nuclear conflagration, all eyes will be on an annual war game in the South next week that could send tensions spiraling back upwards, analysts say. The North’s reaction to the “Ulchi Freedom Guardian” (UFG) joint military exercise that starts Monday will be key to determining what happens next. The annual drills—named after a general who defended an ancient Korean kingdom from Chinese invaders—involve about 50,000 South Korean and 25,000 US troops practicing to protect the country against a North Korean attack. ‘Drive a wedge’North Korea has repeatedly called for an end to large-scale joint military exercises between the allies in exchange for a freeze on its nuclear and missile programs. North Korea appears to have left open some room for a quid pro quo, added Narang.
TOKYO: The United States’ most senior military officer on Friday said North Korea understands that any attack on Japan is equal to one on the US itself—and vice versa. Tokyo remains on alert against potential military provocations by Pyongyang after North Korea threatened to fire missiles towards the Pacific island of Guam, US territory, which would have flown over Japan. “And that’s very, very important for deterrence,” added Dunford, who visited South Korea and China before arriving in Japan. The US and Japan, adversaries in World War II, have forged a decades-long defense alliance and the US stations tens of thousands of troops in the country. Washington has long encouraged Japan to take on more defense responsibility even though the country is militarily constrained by a US-written constitution imposed after the end of World War II.

Carrion’s projection looked modest compared to the 63 gold medals heads of the 37 national spots associations had predicted. Triathlon association president Tom Carrasco, chair of the join Philippine Olympic Committee-Philippine sports Commission task force had, to his estimates is more doable. Rio de Janeiro Olympian silver medallist Hidilyn Diaz would have also taken KL by a storm, but weightlifting, like women’s boxing, isn’t also in the calendar. Eight gold medals ang nawala agad sa atin di pa man tayo nakalilipad,” Carrasco told this writer by way of allaying fears that the national delegation’s campaign is doomed. “We still have something like 19 gold medals though left and there’s a strong possibility what we lost will be replenished.”The TRAP president was referring to his own triathletes Nikko Bryan Huelgas and Ma.
It wasn’t Alora’s first time to lead the athletes’ march. “I’ve been to a lot of SEA Games and this is the first time I saw the athletes in an up mood. They really want to win something; their really fighting hard to put the Philippines up there.”But Friday’s results were as gloomy as the Malaysian weather. The best thing that happened was when Cojuangco formally broke the news before the SEA Games Federation council that the country’s hosting of the 30th SEA Games in 2019 is already a go after Department of Foreign Affairs Sec. Alan Peter Cayetano took the lead and agreed to chair the powerful SEA Games Organizing Committee.
