Wie is main attraction at Sony

first_img 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! The first full-field event of the 2006 PGA Tour season kicks off Thursday, when the Sony Open gets underway in Honolulu with plenty of major winners in the ranks, including defending champion Vijay Singh, reigning U.S. Open titlist Michael Campbell and former No. 1 in the world David Duval. But the biggest attraction might be a 16-year-old Hawaiian schoolgirl who is making her first professional appearance in a PGA Tour event. Michelle Wie, who turned pro in October and is in the field as a sponsor’s exemption, is no stranger to pro golf tournaments, having played in a dozen of them – against men and women – as one of the most precocious amateurs ever to take up the game. The smooth-swinging six-footer first played on the PGA Tour as a high school freshman in the 2004 Sony – also on a sponsor’s exemption. She came within a stroke of making the cut after wowing the field of men’s professionals with her 300-yard drives and the 68 she shot in the second round, the lowest round ever by a female on the men’s tour. Wie, who at 13 in 2003 became the youngest winner of the U.S. Women’s Amateur Public Links championship and was a top-10 finisher in her first LPGA major – the Kraft Nabisco Championship – will be making her third consecutive appearance in the Sony, each time on a sponsor’s exemption. She shot 75-74-149 in missing the Sony cut at Waialae Country Club last January, then shot 70-71-141 in missing the cut at the PGA Tour’s John Deere Classic last summer, again as a sponsor’s exemption. Wie has earned her share of criticism at past professional events for taking a berth that might otherwise have gone to a pro player. But PGA tour vice-president Ric Clarson addressed that by stating the obvious after Wie accepted her Sony berth for this week: “We’re in the entertainment business,” Clarson told the Associated Press in October. “It’s more than just a golf tournament. So when a player like Michelle plays in the Sony Open, it creates national and international attention on, ‘Can she do it?’” Whether doing it involves outdriving tour players or outshooting enough of them to make the cut, Wie – who has helped attract record crowds at the past two Sonys – seems destined again to be one of the event’s biggest attractions this week. !arrow!Local watch:!off! The afterglow of Jason Gore’s best year of professional golf is such that even in an off week, he can be impressive. Although the 31-year-old Valencia resident averaged 80 in finishing last at the season-opening Mercedes Championships in Kapalua on the Hawaiian island of Maui, he wound up leading the young 2006 tour in driving. The one-time Hart High of Newhall phenom blasted a 406-yard drive in the opening round and finished the week with a 279.4-yard average off the tee on the designated-for-measurement holes at the 7,411-yard, par-73 Plantation Course at the Kapalua Resort. Such, perhaps, is the residual burn of his sizzling season of 2005, when Gore packed more highlights into his eighth professional summer than can be reasonably prioritized. What, for example, ranks higher on a golfer’s satisfaction scale: Shooting 59 in a professional tournament? Winning a record three consecutive Nationwide Tour starts? Earning midseason promotion to the PGA Tour? Winning on the PGA Tour for the first time? Sharing the midway lead in the U.S. Open as a qualifier? Playing in the final U.S. Open twosome on Sunday with the defending champion? Gore accomplished all of that in 2005, and if it didn’t make his 2006 tour-opening numbers of 80-80-81-79 easier to take in stride at wind-buffeted Kapalua, there was also the nicety that last place in that 2005-winners-only field was worth $70,000. The good-natured ex-Hart and ex-Pepperdine golfer, who led Pepperdine to the 1997 NCAA team title, kept on smiling throughout a week when he couldn’t remember the last time he had three consecutive rounds in the 80s. He was hardly alone in inner frustration. Eight PGA Tour players shot rounds of 80 or higher at Kapalua, and only six men in the field of 28 finished under par for the tournament. Gore will try again this week at the Sony Open, where he will be joined by seven other area or former area golfers, including Occidental College alumnus Olin Browne, who also shot 59 this year – in the final round of his U.S. Open qualifier. Browne, who started the 2005 season on the Nationwide Tour, was another early leader at the U.S. Open as a qualifier, then went on to win the Deutsche Bank Championship and wound up being named the PGA Tour’s Comeback Player of the Year. Former UCLA golfers Corey Pavin and Tom Pernice Jr., ex-USC player Craig Stadler, Pepperdine alumnus Brent Geiberger, past state amateur champion Charlie Wi of Westlake Village and Tom Lehman – the one-time Wood Ranch of Simi Valley assistant pro who will be U.S. Ryder Cup captain this year – also are in the Sony field.

Vancouver Police Department welcomes new K9 officer

first_imgNot all dogs can be police canines.Those were the words of Vancouver Police Department Special Operations Sgt. Mark Blaisdell spoke to a group of kids at a local dog-oriented 4-H group. The group was donating money to the police department’s K-9 unit, and the children were expecting to see two new police dogs in action on the morning of Aug. 2.Unfortunately, police and the K-9 unit were busy dealing with a standoff. The 4-Hers were instead given the opportunity to ask questions about the special officers and their four-legged partners. The major takeaway? The specialized unit undergoes rigorous and continuous training to build strong bonds between officer and animal.Back in August, the unit was in the middle of training two officers and two new canines. The police department was reluctant to give access to that training; police dogs are popular with the public, but they don’t all make the cut.With the training now finished, Officer Rocky Epperson and canine Koa have been patrolling together for about two weeks, although they’re still accompanied by a veteran officer in the unit and will be for some time.Epperson and Koa responded to numerous calls in their first week on the job. Their partnership would have been impossible without a significant amount of time to build trust, Epperson said.last_img read more
