Ogilvy holds lead at Doral; Tiger’s win streak in jeopardy

first_imgUnless he pulls off a stirring comeback, all those streaks will end, meaning he’ll be a winner in only nine of his past 11 events worldwide heading into the Masters.For anyone else, that’s a superhuman clip. For Woods, it’s become practically expected.Ogilvy’s bogey-free streak for the week ended after 60 holes, when he left a 35-foot par putt short on the seventh hole. He was forced to scramble at times and said he was exhausted after the long day, but he’s still in the best position entering Monday.“It’s a good leaderboard,” Ogilvy said. “That’s what the whole point of these golf tournaments was, I guess, to get fields like this, get everyone playing each other. I guess the idea is to have everyone have a chance with nine holes to play or 18 holes to play.”If Woods has a chance, it’s a slim one, because up-and-down trends plagued him all weekend.Woods’ chances took a serious hit in the third round, when every other contender seemed to go on birdie sprees while he remained stuck in the Doral mud. Singh and Storm shot 63s, Goosen and Furyk had 64s, while Woods could only manage a third-round 72. Ogilvy holds lead at Doral; Tiger’s win streak in jeopardyMarch 24, 2008Jump to CommentsShare on FacebookShare on TwitterShare via EmailPrint>DORAL, Fla. (AP) – Tiger Woods’ unbeaten streak lives another day. Barring a big comeback, it’ll live for only one more day.Geoff Ogilvy got to 17 under through nine holes and held a two-shot lead over Jim Furyk and Vijay Singh at the soggy CA Championship, which won’t finish until Monday because of a three-hour weather delay during the final round.Furyk was 15 under through 10, while Singh played nine holes. Retief Goosen and Graeme Storm were three shots back and Steve Stricker made a huge charge, shooting a final-round 63 to finish at 13 under, four shots back of Ogilvy and tied with Adam Scott.Play was scheduled to resume Monday at 8:30 a.m., when most intrigue will be pointed toward Woods – who was five back with seven holes remaining.“In his own mind, he probably still thinks he has a chance and I’m sure we’ve seen him to do crazy things before,” Ogilvy said. “But Jim and Vijay have won a fair few tournaments and Adam’s won a fair few tournaments. … He doesn’t have to only catch me.”World Golf Championship events are some of Woods’ favorites, given his 15 wins in 26 previous WGCs entering this week. But somehow, at Doral, he’s looked mortal. He hasn’t lost to anyone in six months, yet when play was halted, he was tied for ninth.Ogilvy’s last win was the 2006 U.S. Open. Woods missed the cut that summer at Winged Foot and has been on an absolute tear ever since, winning 16 of his last 26 official PGA Tour events and carrying winning streaks of seven straight appearances worldwide and five tournaments on tour into at Doral, a track where he’s prevailed each of the past three years.last_img read more

High Performance GNSS Chipset for Demanding Automotive and UAV Applications

first_imgu‑blox has announced its new ultra‑robust meter‑level M9 global positioning technology platform, designed for demanding automotive, telematics, and UAV applications.Based on high performance GNSS chip, UBX‑M9140, the M9 technology platform and the NEO‑M9N, the first module based on the platform, can receive signals from up to four GNSS constellations (GPS, Glonass, Beidou, and Galileo) concurrently, in order to achieve high positional accuracy even in difficult conditions such as deep urban canyons. The u‑blox M9 offers a position update rate of up to 25 Hz, enabling dynamic applications like UAVs to receive position information with low latency.The u‑blox M9 also features special filtering against RF interference and jamming, spoofing detection, and advanced detection algorithms that enable it to report fraudulent attacks quickly so that users’ systems can react to them in a timely fashion. The NEO‑M9N module has an integrated SAW (surface acoustic wave) filter combined with an LNA (low noise amplifier) in the RF path, which guarantees normal operations even under strong RF interference, for example when a cellular modem is co‑located with the NEO‑M9N.The u‑blox M9 is developed as a follow‑on from u‑blox M8 GNSS platform, offering even more robust meter‑level positioning technology and security features to protect the integrity of applications in the automotive, telematics, and UAV markets. Users of the u‑blox M9 will, therefore, benefit from it being part of the wider u‑blox product family, which means that developers will be able to design a single PCB and then migrate to a different positioning technology, such as dead reckoning augmenting GNSS technology, with very little change to the board design.u‑blox is supporting the introduction of the u‑blox M9 by releasing the Explorer Kit M9 (XPLR‑M9), a development board for designers who want to assess the technology. The miniature plug‑and‑play device is supplied with user‑friendly u‑start software, which includes a number of preset scenarios to enable users to explore the performance of the new device.The u‑blox M9 technology platform complies with the ISO/TS 16949, ISO 16750, AEC‑Q100 standards. Engineering samples of the NEO‑M9N , the first module based on the M9 platform, the UBX‑M9140 high-performance chip, and the Explorer Kit are available now.The company will be showcasing its new M9 at Mobile World Congress 2019 in Los Angeles, from October 22 to 24.last_img read more

Two Moose Killed On Peninsula Roads

first_imgDuring the last week in October, six moose were killed in one 24-hour period. FacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享Two moose accidents have been recorded on Kenai Peninsula roads so far this week, and it’s only Tuesday. On Sunday at 7pm, Troopers responded to the intersection of Moose Range Rd. and Robinson Loop for a report of a motor vehicle collision between a vehicle and a moose. The moose was gone when officers arrived. The vehicle sustained light damage and was operational. The driver, Beverly Burden, age 51 of Sterling, was able to drive the vehicle from the scene and reported no injuries. On Monday at approximately 6pm, Troopers responded to single vehicle crash with a moose near mile 105 of the Sterling Highway. Investigation revealed 52-year-old Theresa Ann Holman of Kasilof struck a moose while driving a silver 2013 Honda car.center_img Between the two crashes, no injuries were sustained. Holman’s and Powell’s vehicles received minor damage. Martin’s vehicle received substantial damage and was disabled as a result. While Troopers were en route to the crash, two separate vehicles, a silver 1999 Honda car, driven by 55-year-old Frances Ellen Martin of Soldotna and a red 1994 Dodge pickup driven by 25-year-old Olivia Sue Powell of Sterling, approached. Martin took evasive action to avoid the moose Holman had previously struck. Powell took evasive action as well, colliding with Martin in the process.last_img read more
