Joy Ride

first_imgLOUISVILLE, Ky. – This isn’t about driving accuracy or even driving distance, although that simple statistic seems to provide a neat bow when explaining Rory McIlroy’s current run of brilliance. It’s not the Northern Irishman’s drastically improved putting or even that 3 additional kilos of muscle he’s packed on in recent months. Nor does this have anything to do with his relationship status, which publically and dramatically went from committed to carefree with his broken engagement to Caroline Wozniacki in May. McIlroy’s dominant run through the dog days is the direct result of peace of mind. A sport’s psychologist will charge $200 an hour to identify it, but at its core the world No. 1 is playing well because of a rediscovered clarity of thought. “It’s fun. It is fun,” he said on Friday after scorching a soggy Valhalla Golf Club with a second-round 67 for a one-shot lead at the PGA Championship. If Bubba Golf is an “A ticket” thrill ride filled with equal parts peaks and valleys, Rory Golf, at its best, is a joy ride. Towering drives, flawless approach shots, deft lag-putting and lots of smiles. PGA Championship: Articles, videos and photos McIlroy’s Friday wasn’t perfect, he missed five consecutive greens starting at the second hole, and he freely admitted his Day 2 “wasn’t quite as pretty as (Day 1)” but there was no mistaking the fact that it was fun. Analysts, be they armchair or otherwise, will continue to dissect the differences between 2014 McIlroy – who has won three of his last seven starts, including July’s Open Championship and his World Golf Championship tune-up last week in Akron – and the 2013 version, but what is right with Rory can’t be found on a TrackMan or in the PGA Tour’s ShotLink program. “What I really like is he’s got his emotions under control. He doesn’t look like anything is coming too fast to him,” said Dave Stockton Sr., McIlroy’s putting coach. “This time it’s, ‘Keep having fun.’ Everybody talks about swing, I can’t comprehend hitting the ball as far as he does, but I can comprehend the mental strength I saw at the British and last week at Firestone.” A case can be made that McIlroy’s newfound peace is at the least an indirect result of his split with Wozniacki. The 25-year-old seemed to suggest as much on Friday. “What else do I have to do?” he figured. “I get up in the morning I go to the course, I go to the gym. It’s my life at the moment.” And at the moment life is good. There was a foreboding feeling across Valhalla that had nothing to do with a forecast that lingered on the horrible side of bad for much of the day. If Friday was McIlroy’s “bad day” the golf world may be bound for another runaway major victory like the one he pieced together last month at Royal Liverpool. We enjoyed this show the first time we saw it, at the 2011 U.S. Open, and the encores in ’12 at Kiawah Island and this year at Hoylake. The difference this time is the careful way he has embraced greatness. All the talent in the world doesn’t assure results, look only to Dustin Johnson whose physical superiority has been undercut by off-course distractions and dubious decisions. There is no backdoor to a quiet mind, which McIlroy learned throughout a difficult 2013 when he failed to win a PGA Tour title and was questioned for everything from his decision to make a wholesale jump to Nike Golf to a series of curious legal battles with former agents. Slowly, methodically McIlroy has distanced himself from that noise and the result has been increasingly stellar results even when his game was not at its best like on Friday. After a sloppy start in increasingly sloppy conditions, McIlroy rolled in a 31 footer for eagle at the 18th hole (his ninth hole of the day) to move two strokes clear of the field. In what is becoming his signature bounce-back style, he followed another bogey at the second hole when he missed a fairway for the first time since June, or at least it seems that long, by playing his last three holes in 2 under par, including a majestic 5-wood from 242 yards at the par-5 seventh to 8 feet for a two-putt birdie. “It was very impressive and hard to beat,” said Martin Kaymer, one of McIlroy’s playing partners who knows a thing or two about impressive golf following his boat-race triumph at June’s U.S. Open. “He is by far the best player in the world.” A decade ago competitors were uttering the same words about Tiger Woods, and while comparisons to the former world No. 1 remain wildly unrealistic the like-minded singular focus demonstrated both players when they are at their best is uncanny. “Mentally I’m in a really solid place in terms of not getting ahead of myself on the golf course,” McIlroy said. “I’m just on a good run.” Or, put another way he’s just in a good place.last_img read more

Jumlah Penumpang Turun, JR East Kirim Produk Hasil Laut dari Miyagi ke Tokyo dengan…

first_imgKarena menggunakan kereta shinkansen, produk seafood ini tiba di Stasiun Tokyo sekitar dua jam setelah keberangkatan atau sekitar pukul 12.48 waktu setempat. Kemudian seafood segar ini disajikan sebagai makanan sashimi yang dilengkapi cuka di restoran seafood di tempat itu setelah jam dua siang. Menurut para nelayan yang ikut serta dalam inisatif tersebut, dalam hal transportasi kereta shinkansen menjadi yang tecepat karena bila menggunakan truk makanan seringkali seafood ini sampai ke Tokyo esok harinya.“Karena shinkansen kuat dalam kecepatan dan ketepatan waktu, kami ingin berkontribusi kepada masyarakat dengan membawa produk lokal,” kata Tsuyoshi Hamada dari proyek manajemen rantai pasokan JR East.Penumpang Tohoku Shinkansen telah turun secara signifikan di mana jumlah penumpang di bulan Mei ketika keadaan darurat di umumkan turun menjadi sepuluh persen dari periode yang sama di tahun lalu. Namun, keadaan penumpang berangsur pulih, tetapi di minggu sebelumnya penurunan hingga 30 persen dari periode yang sama tahun lalu.Bahkan situasi ini diperkirakan akan berlanjut untuk waktu yang lama. Inilah yang kemudian menjadi alasan JR East dengan mempertimbangkan langkah-langkah untuk mengkompensasi penurunan pendapatan dari bisnis kereta api, dan sebagai salah satunya, telah memulai eksperimen untuk mengangkut produk-produk khas lokal ke Tokyo dengan Shinkansen. JR akan terus memverifikasi waktu yang dibutuhkan untuk transportasi dari area produksi dan bertujuan untuk menerapkannya secara praktis sambil juga mengamati reaksi penumpang di kereta.“Karena kesegaran adalah kunci produk kelautan, saya pikir ini adalah hal yang membuat zaman yang akan merevolusi logistik,” kata Hiromitsu Ito, presiden industri perikanan Kaiyu.Baca juga: Tahan Gempa, Ini Kereta Berkecepatan Tinggi yang Baru di JepangUntuk diketahui, ini bukan kasus pertama bahan makanan yang diangkut oleh jaringan rel kecepatan tinggi, karena ikan segar, buah, dan sayuran telah dipindahkan dengan kereta Joetsu shinkansen antara Niigata dan Tokyo sejak 17 Januari. Kereta berangkat dari Niigata pukul 10.17 setiap hari Jumat, dengan membawa ikan mencapai toko Hoodison di stasiun Shinjuku sekitar pukul 14.30. Layanan ini tidak menggunakan akomodasi penumpang, tidak seperti program uji coba terbaru JR East di mana gerbong Nomor 1 ditutup untuk penumpang sehingga joknya dapat digunakan untuk mengangkut kontainer ikan.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Like this:Like Loading… RelatedShinkansen Pacu Kecepatan Antara Tokyo ke Sapporo, Namun ‘Terhalang’ Terowongan Seikan07/01/2020In “Darat”Terkendala Sistem Pengereman, Ratusan Ribu Penumpang Shinkansen Padati Stasiun02/01/2019In “Darat”Antisipasi Bencana Alam, Tiga Operator Shinkansen Gunakan Sistem Keselamatan Baru!03/12/2017In “Darat” Seafood produk lokal dari Prefektur Miyagi dikirim dengan kereta shinkansen ke Tokyo (istimewa) Jumlah penumpang kereta peluru shinkansen selama pandemi virus corona baru atau Covid-19 ini telah turun secara signifikan.

Avon Lake Defeats St. Edward’s On The Pitch With 3-0 Hard Fought Effort

first_img Related Topics Avon Lake played host to the St. Edward Eagles tonight and earned a tidy 3-0 victory in a non-conference matchup.The game began with chances for each team. In the third minute senior Edison Lemanowicz tested the Eagles’ goalie with a powerful shot that he had to palm away, and it fell to junior Spencer Chippi, whose driven shot sailed wide high and to the left.A few minutes later St. Eds has a ball drop at the back post that they poked towards the goal, but freshman Zach Glesius made a great leaping save to keep it out and the defense cleared.Ten minutes into the game the Shoremen struck, off a lovely free kick. The Eagles had just given up a careless foul on a ball that looked like it was going out for a St. Eds throw in, and paid for it. Junior Drew DelGiudice hit a ball to the near post that Lemanowicz flicked to the back corner and in. The goal was his fourth on the season.Avon Lake almost doubled their lead ten minutes later after a long through ball played in by junior Derek Stepak, playing center back tonight, found its way to fellow junior Danny Lambert, who cruised in on goal and hit a nice near post strike. The Eagles keeper made a great save to get down to his right and push it out for a corner kick.The Shoremen also generated a dangerous opportunity with just under a minute to go in the first off a well taken corner kick from senior Cam Salco, who forced the St. Eds goalie into another quality save as he had to fly off his line and make a full extension punch to stop what looked like an almost certain goal at the back post.The second half looked like it would be more pressure from the Shoremen as two minutes in they were knocking on the door step once again. Sophomore Zach Ramsey used some nifty footwork to free himself and find senior Joey Caputo, who played a diagonal cross that snuck past the Eagles’ defense and made it to Salco. Unfortunately his effort went just barely wide left despite sending the keeper the wrong way.Five minutes later junior Josh Lawniczak picked up a ball in the middle of the field and found himself free to launch a shot from 30 yards out, which seemed to dip as it tailed away from the keeper, who did well to knock it away for another Shoremen corner kick.About a minute later St. Eds almost caught the Shoremen off guard as their forward found some space behind the defense and was about to hit his shot when a last ditch effort from Stepak managed to stifle the threat.In the 55th minute another Shoremen free kick looked dangerous as DelGiudice hit one to the top of the six yard box that senior Andrew Jacobson beat the keeper to but could not turn home.About ten minutes later Avon Lake finally broke through off a nice sequence. Lawniczak flicked a header at midfield that Lambert picked up before playing a centering pass to DelGiudice, who chipped a pass to the right corner of the 18 yard box that Lemanowicz then dummied back to Lambert.Lambert’s expertly taken cross was met and finished by a nice lefty shot from DelGiudice, who had continued his run into the box. His fourth goal of the year made it 2-0 Avon Lake.The final score was assured after senior Kristof Nieschwitz made a knifing run with the ball through the Eagle 18 yard box and took a shot that was blocked by an Eagle defender. Sophomore Logan Allemeier took the deflection and hit a shot that was saved by the hand of a different St. Eds defender, earning a clear penalty kick. Nieschwitz stepped up and buried his shot leaving no doubt, and making it 3-0.“Solid performance for us this evening,” said head coach Pete Klepek. “We took an early lead and then had to play much of the game protecting that lead. Our back line, led by Andrew Jacobson and Derek Stepak, and our goalie Zach Glesius, did outstanding work to keep us in control.Colin Radca, Joey Caputo, Josh Lawniczak, even guys off the bench like Charlie Krause, Aidan Miller, and Ryan Smith were great tonight.”With the win Avon Lake improves to 3-2 on the season. JV also was victorious in the first game, beating a big and strong Eagle’s JV squad 1-0 off a goal by freshman Andy Neipp that was assisted by fellow freshman Nick DelGiudice. JV moves to 3-1-1 on the year.Both teams will be back in action on Wednesday September 5th as they host SWC rival Lakewood, games are at 5 and 7pm.  Vince McKeelast_img read more
