Silver Medal joy for Niebrugge

first_img Niebrugge, the 2013 US Amateur Public Links champion, rated it as his biggest achievement so far. “I would rank it up for sure the top accomplishment I’ve had so far: the Silver Medal in a major championship, especially at St Andrews, is definitely a dream come true,” he said. “I played in the Masters last year and the John Deere Classic (on the PGA Tour) this last summer and both of those experiences definitely made this a little easier. “There is nothing like coming down the last hole, though. It’s just an awesome amphitheatre – I was a little nervous.” Niebrugge will not be turning professional, as so many do after a good performance in a major, as he wants to complete his studies. That means he will be in contention for September’s Walker Cup. “I’ve still got one more year left at Oklahoma State,” added the American, who came through final qualifying at Hillside Golf Club in Southport. “I study entrepreneurship and sports management, basically just typical business classes, with a sports management major. The 21-year-old shot a final-round 70 at St Andrews to post 11 under and overtake Ireland’s Paul Dunne, who had begun the final round with a three-stroke lead over his rival. Five amateurs made the cut and with three finishing in the top 12, it was the most competitive challenge for the Silver Medal for some time. Amateur Jordan Niebrugge made it an United States double at the 144th Open Championship after walking away with the Silver Medal. Press Association “If golf doesn’t work out, I’d still like to stay in the golf field and do something business-wise that way.” He beat compatriot and former number one-ranked amateur Oliver Schniederjans, who is wasting no time in joining the paid ranks and will be teeing it up at this week’s Canadian Open on Thursday having already played in two majors. “I really wanted these experiences in two majors and I’m absolutely thrilled that I decided to do that,” he said, having made the cut in last month’s US Open. “I feel like I’m ready to be out here.” England’s Ashley Chesters could find himself competing against Schniederjans again in September after finishing alongside the American on nine under with a final-round 69. “I’ve got to go back and defend the European Amateur again,” he said of his immediate plans to win a third successive title in Slovakia in August. “I’ll probably wait and play the Walker Cup now and hopefully this will do me no harm in getting picked for that and then possibly turn pro after that.” Dunne finished on six under, having gone into the last round as joint leader in the final group on 12 under, after shooting 78 with Frenchman Romain Langasque two-over after a 74. last_img read more

In the double-six he plays really well.”He can play all three positions in midfield and that’s really nice. All the boys are really versatile, to be honest.”Hendo came in on Saturday and played the half-space and helped so much with how we defended. He was really lively.

Law society clarifies allegation against Kenora lawyer

first_imgBy Paul BarnsleyAPTN InvestigatesThe Law Society of Upper Canada (LSUC) has amended an allegation it made against Douglas Keshen, a Kenora-based lawyer with an extensive First Nation practice.On June 10, the law society’s tribunal hearing division released a notice of application informing Keshen an investigation into complaints made by 17 Independent Assessment Process (IAP) clients about him had convinced them there was grounds for a professional misconduct hearing. A hearing date has not yet been set.The IAP was established under the Indian Residential Schools Settlement Agreement to compensate former students who suffered serious physical and/or sexual abuse in the schools.Six allegations were made by the law society.On June 22, almost two weeks later, the tribunal hearing division released a revised notice of application with a significant change to the sixth allegation.“The notice of application was amended so as to avoid any confusion as to which attorneys the law society was referring in paragraph six. The amendments did not change the law society’s position,” the LSUC told APTN Investigates in an emailed statement.The wording of that allegation was open to misinterpretation. It originally read that Keshen had transferred the client’s money to “his attorneys.”The word “his” could mistakenly be understood to refer to attorneys at Keshen’s firm when it fact the word referred to other attorneys working for the client.The amended allegation makes it clear the law society is saying that Keshen transferred the money to a person holding a power of attorney over a survivor’s financial affairs “when it was apparent that all of the monies transferred were not for the benefit” of the client.Daniel Naymark, a Toronto lawyer acting for Keshen, in a letter to APTN, said the law society has misread the situation.“The law society does not allege that Mr. Keshen or any other lawyer with whom he is affiliated ‘pocketed’ the funds in question. Rather, the law society apparently alleges that relatives of the client in question misused a power of attorney authorizing them to direct the spending of the client’s IRS settlement funds by spending the money on themselves, and that Mr. Keshen should have noticed this theft and stopped it,” he said. “The relatives whom the law society accuses of stealing the client’s money include a very prominent member of the Treaty 3 community. Mr. Keshen has the utmost respect for this individual. He does not doubt that he and the other relatives accused by the law society spent the settlement funds with their vulnerable relative’s interests at heart. He believes the law society’s allegations against these respected community members reflect a lack of understanding of Ojibway culture.”But the law society disagrees with that reading of the amended allegation.“The law society is concerned with Mr. Keshen’s conduct and not the conduct of the individuals appointed under the power of attorney,” the LSUC email states.last_img read more

Ohio State womens lacrosse falls to Penn State

The Ohio State women’s lacrosse team can’t seem to top Penn State. Coming into Sunday’s game, OSU had not beaten the Nittany Lions since 2008. Despite OSU being the higher ranked team, nothing changed in the two teams’ most recent meeting, and the No. 10 OSU squad fell to No. 13 Penn State, 15-12. “We didn’t come out strong, we came out pretty flat,” said OSU senior attacker Alayna Markwordt. “Penn State has always been one of our biggest rivals, so this is a frustrating one to lose.” Markwordt, Ohio State’s leading scorer, was held without a goal but did contribute two assists and had two groundballs. The Buckeyes (9-4, 1-3) struck first on sophomore attacker Katie Chase’s unassisted goal two-and-a-half minutes into the game. From that point, it was a back-and-forth battle, with the two teams trading sets of goals for the rest of the first half. OSU jumped out to a 4-2 lead with 10 minutes remaining in the half, but the lead would turn into a 5-4 deficit after Penn State freshman attacker Maggie McCormick ripped off three straight goals in less than two minutes. The two teams went into the locker room tied at 6-6 after a goal from OSU sophomore midfielder Cara Facchina, which came after an assist from freshman attacker Jackie Cifarelli with 24 seconds left. Penn State (10-4, 2-2 Big Ten) had 13 fouls compared to OSU’s four in the first half. “The heat of the game builds up ’cause you know you’re playing your rival that you come out against every year, and it’s always a battle,” said freshman goalie Tori DeScenza. She finished the game playing all but the last three minutes and had seven saves, including five in the second half. The next 30 minutes started much like the first except Penn State struck first. Sophomore attacker Mackenzie Cyr scored with McCormick chipping in on one of her team-leading four assists. Cyr and McCormick lead the team with four goals and four assists apiece, and were responsible for teaming up on five of the teams 15 goals. The back-and-forth battle continued as OSU’s Kirsten Donahue tied the game at 7-7 on a free position shot. The senior midfielder went on to score three of her team-leading four goals in the second half. The game was tied at 11-11 with 17:34 to play when once again, Donahue scored. But that would be the last time OSU would stay tied with Penn State as the Nittany Lions jumped out to a 13-11 lead with 15 minutes to go. Penn State would go on to score the last two goals, the final one coming on Cyr’s fourth of the game. “They just kind of took it at the end and we just couldn’t be there with it,” DeScenza said. The team has two regular season games left, including a home match-up against American University 2 p.m. Saturday. read more
