Jordan Spieth surges into contention with sparkling 63 in Shanghai

first_img Spieth began the day 10 shots behind halfway leader Kevin Kisner, but carded nine birdies and no bogeys to close to within three shots of his fellow American, who carded his first bogeys of the week in a third round of 70. At 16 under par, Kisner held a one-shot lead over 2013 champion Dustin Johnson, China’s Li Haotong and Scotland’s Russell Knox, who chose not to play the final hole due to darkness after earlier weather delays. Jordan Spieth has a return to world number one and a first World Golf Championship title in his sights after surging through the field with a brilliant 63 in the HSBC Champions in Shanghai. Press Association The final group of Knox, Kisner and Branden Grace were asked by a tournament official on the 18th tee if they wanted to play the par five, with Grace making a birdie to finish 12 under and Kisner a par as Knox looked on. England’s Ross Fisher played his last eight holes in five under par to card a 65 and join Spieth and his Ryder Cup partner Patrick Reed on 13 under, Reed recovering from a double bogey on the fifth to shoot 68. Spieth had expected to be rusty after his longest lay-off for 10 years, going two weeks without touching a club after helping the United States retain the Presidents Cup in Korea last month. That showed with 10 birdies and six bogeys in opening rounds of 68 and 72, but the FedEx Cup winner was close to his best on Saturday, even though he felt a number of good opportunities went begging. ” This will be the first and only time I would say this, but I was not expecting myself to be in this position come Sunday when the week started,” said the 22-year-old, who needs to finish in the top 13 to reclaim top spot from the absent Jason Day, whose wife is due to give birth to their second child. “I came in with very little confidence in my trust of what I’m trying to do in my swing. “On the range (on Saturday) I found an easier way to get the club in the position I’ve wanted it to be in the whole week. It freed me up to be able to not think about impact position and just swing through the ball. ” I’ve struggled to shoot lower than two or three under on this golf course in the past couple years, but (Saturday) was the day to do it with ball in hand, very little wind and some gettable pins. “For whatever reason (on Friday), I put some higher expectations (on myself) than what I’d said coming into this week. I shot four under the first day, figured maybe I could do that again. Yesterday’s conditions were tough and I lost a few shots because of it. “(On Saturday) I came out knowing that it was a gettable golf course. I missed four putts inside eight feet – I’m not going to complain about the round but I felt like the way I played could have been 10 or 11 (under), for sure.” Knox, who was initially seventh reserve for the event and only found out he would be making his WGC debut last Friday, believes he made the right decision not to play the 18th. “Branden and Kevin wanted to get done, but it was awfully dark,” the 30-year-old from Inverness said. “It was into the wind and I was like, maybe I’ll just wait until the morning and see if I can catch it downwind or no wind. “I was happy with my decision. My caddie didn’t want me to play the last and I think all in all, they (Grace and Kisner) maybe shouldn’t have but got away with a birdie and a par, so good on them. “I’m going to have to wake up a lot earlier, starting at 7.45 and I won’t tee off again until probably 10.45. I t’s going to take the best round of my life tomorrow, so I’m going to have to go for it. Pars are not going to win this tournament. I’m going to shoot at the pin.” Like Knox, Kisner is seeking his first PGA Tour title after losing out in three play-offs this year, including to Sergio Garcia and eventual winner Rickie Fowler in the Players Championship. ” Experience always helps,” Kisner said. “Going against the best players in the game in a few of those play-offs, it’s always going to help me in building confidence. There’s so many guys within a couple shots of the lead. It’s going to be a dogfight tomorrow no matter what.” Li lost a play-off to Kiradech Aphibarnrat in the Shenzhen International in April but played down his chances of a massively popular win on home soil on Sunday. ” This tournament is so big, it’s too big,” the 20-year-old said. “I know that on the final day a lot of people are going to be hitting a lot of birdies. But that’s why I thought that my target, my goal in this tournament would be making the top 10, because doing that will already be a highlight and a milestone for my short career.” World number three Rory McIlroy rued a number of missed chances after a 68 which left him eight shots off the lead, but at least felt better after a severe bout of food poisoning on Tuesday. ” I was glad to be back to 100 per cent healthy and could give it my all out there. I felt like I played well from tee to green. I gave myself a lot of chances but again I didn’t really make anything on the greens. That 68 really felt like a 73 or a 74. ”I needed to go a little bit lower to give myself a chance going into (Sunday), but I’ll try to finish off the tournament with a good score and get myself into the top 10 or the top five.” last_img read more

Through Domia’s Lens

first_imgAfter the Roski School of Art and Design awarded her the Macomber Travel Grant, she was able to travel to her mother’s hometown of Ardmore, Okla. as a continuation of “Journey to Salvation.”  “It was a really important thing to make sure that they would come each day and be excited that they would have something to do,” Edwards said. “Also, we tried to keep it enriching … Because a lot of the public schools in that neighborhood weren’t the best.”  “The ocean has been a really repetitive thing in my work because it’s just this unending space of just uncertainty,” Edwards said. “I find the ocean so beautiful, and it’s been a comfort for me.”  “I feel there’s no better way to really make an impact other than really investing in the future, and that’s our children,” Edwards said. Edwards’ art is mostly personal, as she incorporates fights that she considers worth fighting for. There is also a motif of water present in her artwork. “Once they get to that age … children think they’re too old [for camp], so we wanted to push them and be like, ‘OK, if you’re too old for camp, you don’t want to be with the little kids, what do you want to do in your life?’” Edwards said. The photographs themselves were images of softness brought by the presence of the ocean, waves and flowers that showcased the sensitive side of masculinity.  “I first had her in a moving image film class—that’s where you shoot analog film—and she immediately made a very beautiful and intense piece about African American kids,” West said. “The images were incredibly well-shot and composed and it was very moving … Her work is very personal and that piece was a little bit more about larger notions of the world and her community and her specific point of view and experience.’’ “I became a counselor when I was 14,” Edwards said. “I started as a site director with my older sister but [when] she graduated college … more responsibility fell onto me.”  “That town raised four generations of my mother’s family,” Edwards said. “My great-great grandparents traveled from Georgia to Oklahoma on the Trail of Tears, so representation is really important to me.’’  Despite being away from her hometown and Camp Village for most of the year, Edwards manages to incorporate her history and personal causes into her art and school projects at USC.  Being raised in such an environment not only allowed Edwards to express her creative side but also nurtured her leadership skills at a young age. Through photography, Domia Edwards has found a comfortable place to share her perspective on uncomfortable issues. The artist uses her photographs as a way to open up discussions on causes she personally believes in, such as increased representation of African Americans. That affection shows through the other side too. Caleb Griffin, a senior majoring in art and one of Domia’s closest friends, was one of the models in “Boys Don’t Cry” and considers working with Edwards an experiment in mindfulness.  One of the main aspects of her photography is the effort she puts into making her models feel at ease.  Over the last 17 years, the camp has served thousands of children between 5 and 18 years old. Beyond her friendships, Edwards has left a mark on professors like Jennifer West, an associate professor of the practice of fine arts. West, who is internationally recognized for her explorations of materialism in film, was impressed by Edwards’ artistic productions when she taught her for the first time. center_img Representation is the subject of some of her other projects as well. During her freshman year, she worked on a piece called “Boys Don’t Cry,” in which she photographed three of her best friends at USC, aiming to expose a more controversial aspect of masculinity. “I think it had a huge influence on how I was raised and just being able to be around that type of education,” Edwards said. “I’m from the southwest of Atlanta, and it’s a pretty much all-Black part of the town. There wasn’t a lot of programming that was really all-encompassing for these young Black children in our neighborhood. We just grew and grew, bigger and bigger.” “My freshman year, I started this project that’s been continuously going throughout all my years here,” Edwards said. “I call it ‘Journey to Salvation,’ where I started more of an internal practice of documenting, just questioning being away from home, moving to college.” West said Edwards’ unique perspective and artistic talent, makes her a major contribution to the USC community. Her photographic expertise or with thoughtful insights during discussions inspire her peers, West said. Edwards has already established herself as a prominent photographer and artist, and although the future is uncertain, she believes she’s meant to give back to the world. “Black men are really expected to act in a certain way,” Edwards said. “They’re not expected to do certain things and the tension on their masculinity is a lot tighter. I feel they don’t get to love as freely as they want to, even in friendships.”  “Our shoots are really casual even though sometimes they’re centered around weighted topics, but the casualness is a result of our friendship,’’ Griffin said. Our relationship is really special to me because we bounce ideas off of each other a lot and push each other to new different heights.” “She holds a very strong and important role in the Roski community,” West said.  “I always try to make sure my subjects are comfortable with me having a camera, with me being in their space,” Edwards said. “Really immersing myself into that community, making sure they feel comfortable with me and I feel comfortable with them to be able to really capture what I feel like they are.”  After that, Edwards created the Junior Apprentice Program, designed for teenagers between 10 and 18 years old who are no longer excited about children’s activities.  (Photo courtesy of Domia Edwards) “People were really diving into really disbanding, ‘What can masculinity be like?’” Edwards said. “If we really just let the reigns loose, what can all the beautiful forms they can really manifest in? … To be able to see them and have such a free and loving friendship, and them having such a loving friendship with me was really inspiring.” Edward, a senior majoring in art, has known she wanted to be an artist for as long as she can remember. Born and raised in Georgia, Edwards grew up as an active member of Camp Village, an after-school extracurricular program founded by her mother when she was 3 years old.  Edwards said she realizes that being an artist is not easy, but she is a strong believer that doing what one loves is absolutely worth doing. “Art can be stressful and hard,” Edwards said. “You gotta love it. I love this … I dream about making art. I dream about making the world a better place … That’s my No. 1 mission.’’last_img read more
