Lingmerth refuses to lose, outlasts Rose at Memorial

first_imgDUBLIN, Ohio – David Lingmerth kept telling himself it was his turn to win Sunday in the Memorial, even amid so many signs that suggested otherwise. He thought his 3-under 69 would be enough when Justin Rose shanked a shot from a fairway bunker, plunked a spectator in the head and had to get up-and-down from 55 yards on the final hole to force a playoff. And he did. Lingmerth was looking at a 10-foot par putt for the win on the first extra hole until Rose made a 20-footer for par that fell in from the right side of the cup, and suddenly the Swede’s putt was simply to stay in the game. Lingmerth made them all until he was shaking hands with tournament host Jack Nicklaus to celebrate a victory he won’t soon forget. He ended the three-hole playoff – the longest in 40 years at Muirfield Village – with a par putt from just inside 5 feet. But it was that first extra hole and his 10-foot putt to match Rose’s par that showed his resolve. ”I was thinking to myself that I’d probably have a putt to win the tournament right there,” he said. ”And then he drops it in … and this big, huge roar. Crazy feeling. So I took a few moments just to let the crowd and myself calm down because I knew how big that next putt was going to be. I’ve been in a few playoffs. You win some, you lose some. But I didn’t feel that it was my turn to lose this time. I was telling myself that I was going to make that putt.” Memorial Tournament: Articles, videos and photos Stoic through all the pressure, the most emotion he showed was after it was all over. His first PGA Tour victory came on the birthday of his father, Thomas, and his parents’ anniversary. Lingmerth’s wife used FaceTime for the father to watch the press conference, and when it ended, Nicklaus spoke to him as Lingmerth smiled wider that he did all day. There were a few other gifts. Lingmerth is headed to the Masters for the first time, but not the U.S. Open. He has a qualifier on Monday, as if 21 holes on Sunday wasn’t enough. The victory also gets him into the PGA Championship, two World Golf Championships and gives him a three-year exemption on the PGA Tour. Rose, who closed with a 72 with that superb par save on No. 18 in regulation, looked like a winner when he made the bending 20-foot par putt in the playoff. Nicklaus threw his hands up. Rose’s son, 5-year-old Leo, shrieked with delight. ”When I made that putt on the first extra hole, I thought, ‘Wow, I’m going to steal this one.’ But it wasn’t to be,” Rose said. He lost a three-shot lead at the start of the final round and closed with a 72. And on the third extra hole, he went from right rough to left gallery, chipped 18 feet by the hole and still had more than 4 feet for bogey when Lingmerth ended it. ”He needs to look back at that putt that kept it going on the first extra hole,” Rose said. ”He did everything he needed to.” Masters champion Jordan Spieth closed with a 65 and wound up two shots behind in a tie for third with Francesco Molinari of Italy, who was tied for the lead until hitting into the water on the 16th for a double bogey. He shot 71. Tiger Woods showed improvement – it was hard not to after a career-worst 85 on Saturday. He shot 74 and finished last, 29 shots behind, with his worst 72-hole score (302) in his PGA Tour career. ”I did not win, and I wasn’t even close,” Woods said. ”So hopefully in two weeks’ time, things will be a lot better and I’ll be ready to try to win a U.S. Open.” Spieth was nine shots behind going into the final day and could not have imagined having to spend an extra three hours in Ohio. He chipped in twice – for birdie on the par-5 seventh and for eagle on the par-5 15th – and closed with a birdie. He posted at 13-under 275 and stuck around all afternoon to see if it would be enough. Lingmerth made sure it wasn’t with a solid finish – a short birdie on the 15th to reach 15 under, and pars the rest of the way to reach 15-under 273. He did not make a bogey over the last 11 holes he played. Rose had the wild finish. A fan yelled in his swing from a tough bunker shot on the 14th, where he made bogey. He made birdie on the par-5 15th. He three-putted the 16th, only to make a 12-foot bending birdie putt on the 17th. And right when it looked like he was in trouble after the shank, he saved par with a pitch out of deep rough to 3 feet. DIVOTS: Patrick Rodgers earned special temporary membership with a tie for 40th, meaning he gets unlimited exemptions the rest of the way. But it wasn’t easy. He made bogey on the 15th and triple bogey on the 16th, only to finish birdie-birdie to lock it up. … Kevin Kisner withdrew from the U.S. Open qualifier on Monday because he tweaked his back on the range Thursday. He felt better Sunday, closed with a 70 and tied for eighth. That moved him to No. 57 in the world, and if he can stay in the top 60 after next week, he’ll be in the U.S. Open.last_img read more

Developer ditches plan for South Fork wind farms, Southampton estate sells for half its initial ask & more Hamptons real estate news

first_imgClockwise: A two-home Water Mill compound’s ask is cut down to $17.5M, a developer scuttles its plan for wind farms off the South Fork, a modern East Hampton home with a “wellness center” lists for $8.5M and a developer-turned-speedboat racer’s Sag Harbor estate hits the market at nearly $17M.Developer nixes bid to build wind farms off the South ForkNew York Gov. Andrew Cuomo may have big plans for offshore wind power as part of the Empire State’s climate change action plan, but Bill White, managing director of the developer East Wind LLC, said his company will withdraw its plan to built a wind farm 20 miles off the South Fork, Newsday reported. The developer, a subsidiary of Germany-based EnBW Energie Baden-Württemberg AG, instead plans to build farther west and urge federal authorities to bar turbine construction from the East End’s waters. East Wind bowed out of its bid for offshore wind power in the Hamptons due to concerns about how wind farms might impact the local fishing industry. The federal government has been finalizing proposed lease sites for such farms despite local and state opposition them. East Wind officials have their eye on six sites off Long Island where they hope to build. One is directly off East Hampton and Southampton. The others stretched from Patchogue to Long Beach. Meanwhile, a plan touted by Cuomo on Thursday could bring offshore wind turbines to an area 30 nautical miles southeast of Montauk, although it remains unclear where a cable that connects to the wind farm will come ashore.

[NYP]Owners eye replacing Westhampton Beach building with bigger versionStephen Matri and Lance Farlow, the owners of 115 Main Street in the Village of Westhampton Beach, have applied for permission to demolish the structure and replace it with a two-story building, 27east reported. Matri and Farlow, operating under the limited liability company SKL Realty Holdings, are working with a partner whose name hasn’t been publicized. In the new building’s ground floor, SKL hopes to create two retail spaces, a restaurant and a bar. Atop that the property owners want to place an apartment and an office unit. The next building on the site would be 3,400 square feet, larger than the current 2,974-square-foot structure. SKK needs to get a variance in order to install a new septic system. The retail store Shock, which has operated on the site for years, will have a place in the next building. In the meantime, Shock may temporarily move across the street to a unit at 128 Main Street, which Matri and Farlow’s company recently bought from Simon Jorna, the onetime owner of Beach Bakery Grand Cafe, the latter of which was recently sold after listing last year for $5.75 million.
