On some of the challenges of the course and how the team played…
“The golf course plays tougher in the afternoon. It firms up and dries up a little bit. For the most part, I think we handled it really well. We were still in the lead at the turn and leaked a little bit of oil in the middle of the back nine, but we ended well. The team is a little disappointed, but I will take a team that is disappointed with being where we are now. We will flush today out and get ready for tomorrow.”

Spain Grants Nationality To ‘stateless’ Girl
June 08, 2022 – 8:54 AM
MADRID (AP) — A Spanish court has upheld the decision to grant Spanish nationality to the daughter of a Cameroon woman who was born while they migrated to Europe.
The girl had been residing in Spain without any official documents that granted her a nationality since she and her mother arrived in 2018.
In a ruling seen by The Associated Press on Wednesday, the provincial court in Gipuzkoa in northern Spain took the measure to ensure that the girl no longer remained “in a stateless limbo” and “in inequality respect to other minors.”
Both the court’s press office and Spanish Commission for Refugees said this is the first case of its kind in the European Union country. The ruling upheld a previous decision by a lower court in 2021 to grant the girl nationality. It had been appealed by the government.
According to the court ruling, the mother and daughter crossed the Mediterranean and arrived in Tarifa in southern Spain in May 2018. The mother sent a request to the Cameroon embassy in Madrid for a Cameroon passport for her daughter, but they told her that she would need a birth certificate from Morocco or must return to Cameroon. She then asked Morocco officials for a birth certificate and a Moroccan passport for her daughter but never heard back.
The daughter was unable to be registered with city officials in the northern city of San Sebastián where she lives. That stopped her from getting full access to the public health system.
According to Program Ödos, a Spanish charity dedicated to women and children in migration, 550 children accompanied with their parents arrived to Spain in 2020 without any documentation to prove their birth.
Thousands of people have died in recent years trying to use flimsy, unseaworthy crafts to cross the Mediterranean Sea to the European continent or the stretch of the Atlantic Ocean that separates Africa from Spain’s Canary Islands.
Another four people were found dead by Spanish maritime rescuers on Wednesday when they saved eight passengers from a small boat off the southeastern coast, according to authorities.

Paris Champions League Final Was ‘nightmare’ For Liverpool Mayor, CCTV Evidence Lost
Key CCTV video evidence no longer availableLiverpool mayor says he was robbed at the gameMay 28 final was marred by crowd disorder and crimeLiverpool mayor gave evidence to French SenateMinister has blamed Liverpool fans without genuine tickets
PARIS, June 9 (Reuters) – Liverpool mayor Steve Rotheram told the French Senate on Thursday how the Champions League soccer final became a “nightmare” as France continued its probe into disorder at the match and it emerged that key CCTV footage had been deleted.
The May 28 final, which Liverpool lost 1-0 to Real Madrid, was delayed after police officers forcefully held back people trying to enter the ground. Riot police sprayed tear gas on fans, including women and children.
French Interior Minister Gerald Darmanin has said large numbers of Liverpool fans turning up without valid tickets caused a crowd crush at Paris’s Stade de France, but that has been denied by Liverpool officials and supporters.Register now for FREE unlimited access to Reuters.Com
Rotheram said problems began as fans arrived at the ground, only to find routes blocked off by police vans.
This contributed to a crowd build-up that got so bad that people had to climb over grills to get into the ground – which in turn attracted local criminals who sought to take advantage of the chaos by pickpocketing people, said Rotheram, who saidhe was robbed of his possessions during the evening.
“The day gradually transformed from a dream into a nightmare,” Rotheram told the Senate via videolink.
Erwan Le Prevost, from the French Football Federation (FFF), said “violent” video footage from the evening had been deleted and was no longer available.
Paris police chief Didier Lallement had told the Senate he might have been wrong when he said up to 40,000 Liverpool fans tried to enter the final with fake tickets, and that there was no scientific evidence to support the claim.
Lallement said police tactics at the match were a “failure” because fans were harmed and the image of France was degraded, and Rotheram criticised police for seeking confrontation and lashing out at fans with their batons.
“I saw police who were, in a way, looking to find a problem,” said Rotheram.
The crowd trouble has caused a political headache for President Emmanuel Macron’s minister Darmanin since France is hosting the 2023 Rugby World Cup and 2024 Olympics, although the government says Darmanin has the backing of Macron. read more
It has also caused diplomatic tensions between Britain and France, with Darmanin sticking to his line that large numbers of Liverpool fans without valid tickets contributed to the problems. Liverpool have said the majority of their fans were well-behaved but were treated roughly by French police.
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has expressed his disappointment at how Liverpool fans were treated, while European soccer’s governing body UEFA has commissioned an independent report into the trouble. read more
Yann Bastiere, a senior official with the Unite SGP Police union, told Reuters his colleagues had not reported problems with Liverpool fans but instead had to tackle local criminals. Read more
Darmanin has defended the police tactics, including the use of tear gas, saying they prevented deaths, but Rotheram criticised them.
“Indiscriminate use of tear gas, that is not how you control a crowd, on the contrary that is how you lose control of the crowd,” he said.Register now for FREE unlimited access to Reuters.Com
