Lowry books US Open spot

first_img The Irishman finished runner-up to Rory McIlroy at Wentworth over the weekend, but put any disappointment to one side by carding an eight-under-par overall score in heavy wind and rain at Walton Heath Golf Club. He recorded a 69 on the new course on Monday morning before bettering that with a 67 on the old course to clinch one of the 14 qualifying places from the 105-man event. “It was really tough out there,” Lowry said on www.europeantour.com. “I played okay and putted really, really well. I holed a lot of six to eight footers for par and carried a lot of momentum in from yesterday to get the job done. “I just tried to play steady from there and not lose my head. It was tough last week and then 36 holes in this weather was very tough. “Majors are where I want to be playing. Last week I was comfortable competing down the stretch with the likes of Thomas Bjorn, Rory McIlroy and Luke Donald, so I’ve got a lot of confidence and I’ll take that with me to Pinehurst.” English duo Simon Griffiths and Graeme Storm and Scotland’s Chris Doak were among the nine players to automatically qualify alongside Lowry, with Niclas Fasth, Marcel Siem, Max Kieffer, Garth Mulroy, Shiv Kapur and Brooks Koepka also earning their place at the second major of the season. But six other players had to compete in a play-off for the four remaining spots. English duo Oliver Fisher and Tom Lewis, plus Andrea Pavan and Lucas Bjerregaard sealed their spots, meaning Morten Madsen and Danny Willett had to be content with alternate places. Among those who missed out was Harrington, who was tied for fourth at the 2012 US Open and is a two-time champion of the Open as well as the 2008 US PGA Championship winner. He carded a 75 and a 71. The Irishman remained upbeat, however, telling Sky Sports: “Definitely it wasn’t good, but I’m certainly putting that down to just a little bit of fatigue, it’s been a long couple of weeks. “I’m really positive about things, trying to to stay confident. Probably the most important thing is trying to stay upbeat and let it happen.” Ryder Cup-winning captain Jose Maria Olazabal, himself a two-time major winner, also finished outside the top 14 after finishing level with Harrington on a two over par overall score. Shane Lowry maintained his excellent form from the BMW PGA Championship as he booked his spot at next month’s US Open by winning the 36-hole qualifying event, but three-time major winner Padraig Harrington missed out. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Hit, run surge cited

Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Alicia Villarreal kept returning to the spot where a crossing guard was hit by a truck and dragged about 45 feet down the street – still shocked that someone could run down a human being and then just walk away. “I was yelling, `Stop! Stop!’ I don’t know if he didn’t see Jaime or what, but he just kept going,” said Villarreal. She was just feet from crossing guard Jaime Meza on Wednesday morning when the 50-year-old Whittier man stepped off the curb at Greenstone Avenue in Norwalk and was instantly hit by a red Toyota pickup. “\ got out, then got back in and pulled the truck over, then he left. I couldn’t believe he just walked away,” she said. Meza had to be airlifted to Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center with serious head wounds. He was released on Saturday from the hospital. Investigators are still looking for the suspect, a 30- to 40-year-old man identified as Jose Francisco Velez Serrano of Artesia, who had just purchased the truck. The incident and thousands of others have given California the dishonorable distinction of having the nation’s highest rate of hit-and-run collisions, according to the Insurance Information Institute. Last year, 8,250 hit-and-run collisions involving injury or death were reported on the streets of Los Angeles County. The figure makes Los Angeles the third highest-ranking county for hit-and-runs in a survey of 58 counties statewide, according to the state Office of Traffic Safety. Locally in 2004, La Habra ranked 12th out of 97 cities with populations between 50,000 and 100,000 surveyed for hit-and-runs crashes by the state office. Whittier was not far behind, ranking at 25th. Montebello ranked 32nd in the state; Pico Rivera ranked 42nd; and La Mirada was 52nd, according to the state agency’s statistics. “I really think juries have no sympathy for these people,” said Joe Zizi, public affairs officer for the California Highway Patrol’s Southern Division. “They forget that if the CHP officer gets their license plate number, they’ll be getting a visit at their house, followed by a ride to jail.” Under California law, a driver involved in any accident resulting in injury or death must stop immediately and report the crash, or else face a felony violation that can lead to up to four years in county jail and a fine of up to $10,000. Hit-and-run drivers who damage property can be charged with a misdemeanor, leading to up to six months in jail and $1,000 in fines. Zizi said many people run because they are scared of getting in trouble. Others often grossly underestimate the damage they inflict. “People think they only tapped someone, so they take off. But they may have caused major injury,” he said. “Then it becomes much more than just a traffic collision, because you risk being sent to jail. If there are injuries, you’ll be booked. It’s not worth it to hit and run.” Another primary reason people run from a collision scene is a lack of a driver license, said Montebello Police Department Chief Garry Couso-Vasquez. “In most of my 35 years in the police force, it’s the lack of a driver’s license that causes most hit-and-runs,” he said. “Other top ones are uninsured or unregistered vehicles, suspended licenses and DUI’s.” To reduce hit-and-run crashes in the city, Montebello police check for driver’s licenses during DUI check points. Drivers found violating license laws have their vehicles impounded for 30 days. Violators also pay an impound fee and a fine in order to get their vehicles back, Couso-Vasquez said. “We want to increase accountability, because people will use it as an excuse,” he said. “They’ll let someone drive their car and say, `Oh, I didn’t know he didn’t have a license.’ Well, if you let someone drive your car, you better know if they have a license.” Staff Writers Susan Abram and Molly R.
