Deaf golf will come into the spotlight this week when the Brabazon Trophy gets underway at Seaton Carew in County Durham.The competitors at the event – one of the Majors of amateur golf – include 18-year-old Paul Waring of Felixstowe Ferry in Suffolk, who has been profoundly deaf from birth.The host club also includes a group of deaf golfers among its members and its plans for a new practice area will include facilities for deaf golfers and those with other disabilities. Seaton Carew treasurerJim Cockburn remarked: “Everyone and anyone is welcome here, we include everyone.”Paul is a scratch golfer who secured his first appearance in the Brabazon – the English men’s open stroke play – with a two under par score and a share of second place in the Southern Qualifier.This week’s championship will be just the beginning of a high-profile month for Paul, who will go on to represent England Deaf Golf in the World Deaf Championships in Michigan, USA, from July 12-18.He is already the European Deaf Champion and his schedule reflects his ambition: “to be a successful amateur and then to play on the European Tour.”Paul’s route to the top of the game puts an extra emphasis on communication. He explains the issues created by being deaf: “It makes learning more difficult as communication with your coach has to be different, for them and you. And, if you can’t hear the difference in a good and bad strike, or how a bunker shot should sound, you have to rely on the feel of the shot.”That means lots of practice and a good relationship with the coach: “Both my previous coach, Kevin Lovelock, and my current coach Graham Walker (the England Golf men’s coach), have been brilliant with me,” said Paul.There’s also the issue of communicating with playing partners. Paul uses a combination of lip reading, signing if appropriate, and gestures.He encourages other deaf people to play golf, remarking: “Why not? It’s great fun and you get to meet lots of new people.”Paul started playing golf when he was 12, encouraged by his father, and has represented Suffolk at every level from U14 upwards. He’s been a regular at England Golf boys’ events and at other prestigious junior competitions and this year, is playing more men’s tournaments.He has an impressive record in deaf golf. As well as his European individual title, he helped England win the team event in Finland and, also last year, he won the England Deaf Golf Open, the Spring and Autumn Tournaments and the Order of Merit.Meanwhile, Paul’s focus is on the Brabazon, which starts on Wednesday and continues until Saturday. “I’m very much looking forward to it, I want to play in the best tournaments I can, and this is one of the best.”For all the championship news, reports and pictures please click here.England Golf is committed to increasing the number of deaf and disabled people playing golf.

Faced with the paralysis required throughout the world of football, the rumors about the market are of the little that can function more or less normally. Telematic meetings, mail exchanges or telephone calls will allow those responsible for the various technical secretariats to carry out part of their work. And in that sense, those of Barcelona, according to the Sport newspaper published yesterday, are doing their job of preparing a template for the next course that has a dreamy front. Sport says on its cover that Barcelona dreams of reinforcing its attack with Lautaro Martínez, Inter forward, in addition to making an attempt to repatriate Neymar dPSG. According to the Barcelona newspaper, “Lautaro is blocked” for the Blaugrana club that would have won the game to eal Madrid, which also wanted the Argentine. However, both Manchester City and Chelsea hope to convince him to go to the Premier.As for Neymar, Barça clings to the possibility that the PSG will finally let you go based on your contractual situation and the possibility that FIFA will set a price for sale.

CWI Regional U-19 3-Day…An all-round exhibition of cricket by defending 3-Day champs Guyana saw them secure a stylish 10-wicket win over Leewards in the opening round of the 2018 Cricket West Indies (CWI) Regional U-19 tournament.Kevin SinclairResuming on 58 for 2, Guyana were lifted to 229 all out in their first innings at Arnos Vale Stadium, with Kevin Sinclair top-scoring with 51. Opener Sachin Singh chipped in with 49 while skipper Bhaskar Yadram struck 35 and Javid Karim, 30.Singh and Yadram extended their overnight third-wicket stand to 51 before being separated, to give Guyana a solid start to the day. Singh faced 97 deliveries and struck three fours and two sixes while Yadram belted five fours and a six in his 45-ball innings.Once the partnership was broken, Sinclair arrived to control the innings for Guyana, putting on 32 for the fourth wicket with Singh before adding a further 48 for the fifth with fellow Berbician Kevelon Anderson (17).Sinclair faced 68 balls in nearly 1-1/2 hours at the crease and struck five fours and a six. New-ball bowler Javin Spencer finished with five for 70 while Zawandi White took three for 16.Trailing by 113 runs, the Leewards reached the close on 22 without loss facing a deficit of 91 after making 116 all out batting first. Sinclair first snapped up 4-19 while left-arm spinner Kelvin Umrao grabbed 3-28 to keep Leewards at bay.Their second innings was also a nightmare after Windies youth spinner Ashmead Nedd terrorised the order with returns of 6-30 with Umrao and Sinclair again amongst the wickets with two each, as the Leewards fell for 114.At Sion Hill, Kadeem Alleyne made a half-century as Barbados had the better of the exchanges on a rain-shortened day. Alleyne, unbeaten on 35 overnight, made 54 to get his side from 175 for five at the start to 223 all out in their first innings.He faced 74 deliveries and counted three fours and a six among his runs, but Barbados lost their last five wickets for 20 runs as left-arm spinner Raewin Senior picked up seven for 58.In Jamaica’s reply, leg-spinner Camarie Boyce claimed three for 15 to limit the side to 61 for four – still 162 runs adrift of a first innings lead.There was no play at Park Hill in the contest between Trinidad and Tobago and Windward Islands owing to a water-logged outfield.
It was a frustrating evening for Chelsea, who dominated possession but lacked any cutting edge, maintaining a worrying sequence for Sarri.His side failed to score for the third time in their last five Premier League games at Stamford Bridge, raising more questions about Chelsea’s need for a top-class striker in the January transfer window.“The club knows my opinion. I think we need something else for our characteristics,” Sarri said when asked if he would consider recalling on loan forwards Michy Batshuayi and Tammy Abraham.Quizzed on the possibility of signing a new forward, he made it clear the responsibility lies with owner Roman Abramovich as he said: “It depends on the board, not on me.“I have to think of my responsibility with the training. I have to try to improve my players in the offensive phase.“We played a good match for 80 metres, then we were in trouble in the last 20 metres.“We have to try to solve the problem. We were in control of every match recently, but it was not easy to score the first goal.”With Olivier Giroud sidelined after suffering an ankle injury in Sunday’s win at Crystal Palace, Sarri opted to recall misfiring striker Alvaro Morata.Morata has played so badly this season that Sarri had used Belgian winger Eden Hazard in the central forward’s role recently rather than turn to the Spaniard, who had managed only seven goals this term and none in the league since November 4.But, once again, former Real Madrid star Morata looked completely bereft of touch and confidence.It was no surprise Morata wasted a golden opportunity to open the scoring when he met Cesar Azpilicueta’s long pass with a tame header straight at 22-year-old Angus Gunn — the son of ex-Norwich goalkeeper Bryan Gunn.Having announced the signing of Borussia Dortmund midfielder Christian Pulisic earlier in the day, Chelsea are planning ahead following a season of inconsistent displays from Willian and Pedro on the right flank.United States international Pulisic will return to Dortmund on loan before completing his move to Chelsea in the close-season.For the moment, Sarri continues to use Willian, but the Brazilian’s bid to prove his worth was ruined when he was forced off with an injury late in the first half.– Mounting frustration –Hazard hinted several times that he preferred to play wide rather than up front during Sarri’s experiment with the Belgian as a ‘false nine’.Looking more vibrant back in his favoured role, Hazard made a fine run that opened up the Southampton defence, yet his fierce drive was well saved by Gunn, making his Premier League debut after his close-season move from Manchester City.But Hazard couldn’t do it all on his own and, while successive away wins at Watford and Palace made it a happy Christmas for Chelsea, their first home game of the new year was a lot like their last in 2018.Despite dominating against Leicester, Sarri’s team were beaten 1-0 as they paid the price for lacking the incisive passing and movement needed to break down the visitors’ obdurate defence.It was exactly the same story against Southampton.Although they controlled the game, chances were few and far between for Chelsea until Hazard burst down the left for a shot that Gunn beat away at his near post.Morata’s luck was out when he slotted home from a Cesc Fabregas pass, only to see a tight offside decision deny him a goal.And the hapless Spaniard endured more misery when his took Ruben Loftus-Cheek’s pass and shot straight at Gunn to groans from the crowd.Capping a forgettable game for Chelsea, Marcos Alonso had a strong penalty appeal turned down in the closing moments.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Chelsea’s Eden Hazard showed his frustration in their goalless draw against Southampton © AFP / Ben STANSALLLondon, United Kingdom, Jan 3 – Maurizio Sarri admitted Chelsea need attacking reinforcements after they wasted a chance to cement their place in the Premier League’s top four with a 0-0 draw against struggling Southampton on Wednesday.Sarri’s team remain in fourth place, but they are now just three points ahead of fifth placed Arsenal in the race to qualify for next season’s Champions League.

A GAA fan has paid a staggering and simply ludicrous €11,900 for a ticket to the All-Ireland Football final between Dublin and Kerry.Traditionally Dublin V Kerry deciders have been classic affairs and Sunday’s offering promises to be another cracking encounter. The sides met last met in the final in 2011 and a late, late free from Stephen Cluxton ended Dublin’s 19-year wait for another All-Ireland title.However, it’s absolutely scandalous that someone would pay that much money for an All-Ireland final tickets – and it’s also a disgrace that someone is allowed to make that much of a profit from selling their ticket.GAA executives promised to crack down on shameless ticket touts but so far there solution to sort out the problem clearly hasn’t been effective.It is unknown whether the supporter is from Kerry or Dublin. The ticket was bought on E-BAY earlier today and it has sparked a massive reaction on social media.What are you thoughts on this, should the GAA do more to prevent this scenario from happening on a recurring basis?CRAZY!

AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREThe top 10 theme park moments of 2019 Aram is on an official visit to California on the 10th anniversary of his ascension to the head of the Lebanon-based branch of the Armenian Apostolic Church. This week he will visit the Armenian-American community in Fresno, then come back to Los Angeles on Friday to meet with Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa. Aram said the United States has a role to play in promoting peace in the Middle East, and he said conflicts in the Middle East are more than just political. “I think we should go beyond politics in the strict sense of the word,” Aram said. “The question is how we can we live together.” Rabbi Yosef Kanefsky, president of the Board of Rabbis of Southern California, has a different view. A political solution to the conflict must come before religion can play a positive role. The United States has a big role to play in establishing peace in the Middle East, where Christians are awaiting peace as eagerly as are Jews and Muslims, an Armenian church pontiff said Sunday during his visit to Southern California. His Holiness Aram I, Catholicos of the Great House of Cilicia, is based in Antelias, Lebanon, and speaks Armenian, English, Arabic and French. More than 500,000 Armenians live outside Armenia in the Middle East in such countries as Iran, Lebanon, Syria and Israel, along with other Christians. “You can imagine that the peace process … for us (is) something of profound importance,” Aram said. “This is the only way to bring the region out of what I would say is its centuries-old conflict.” “It’s the folks with the weapons and the oil who are calling the shots, not the people inside the house of worship,” he said. Dr. Maher Hathout, spokesman for the Islamic Center of Southern California, said Christians living in the Middle East have an important role to play, especially in Israel. “By virtue of their message and their long history of good relations with Muslims and the fact that (orthodox Christians) and the Muslims and Jews were victims of the Crusade(s), will give them that historical role to act as mediators for peace,” he said.
