The PGA Tour has the opportunity to show other sports how it is done



The PGA Tour has the opportunity to show other sports how it is done

FORT WORTH, Texas – For all 148 players on the pitch at this week’s Charles Schwab Challenge at Colonial Country Club, their responsibility as a golfer is what is always there in the tournament: Making more birdies than bogeys.

Their responsibility is to post the lowest possible score every day and, at the end of the week if it is the lowest score of 148 players, it is a win, check seven points, a trophy and a group of world rankings and FedExCup points.

The responsibility for the players – and the PGA Tour itself – goes much deeper than birdies and bogeys this week.

This is the first major sporting event since the COVID-19 pandemic took over our lives about three months ago, there is a responsibility to do this right, because the world is watching.

And, based on conversations with the players during Tuesday’s training round, they took that responsibility as seriously as trying to shoot 65.

“I think we need this week to go without mistakes,” Ryan Palmer said. “We have to make sure this week is great, not only for the world of sports but also for our tour. I think if we go out this week and the fans get a good show or not [COVID] kasing, I think it will be a big success for the tour, for our fans, for the sports world. ’

Jordan Spieth, who likes Palmer as a Texan, makes this event a home game, saying, “I really think that all of us as players have the responsibility for it to run very smoothly considering this is the first sport that started, and with that this other [sports] rather pay attention to how things are. ‘

The world of sports pay close attention. RBC Heritage, which will be played next week, is watching. So, also, is the Travelers Championship, which is the third PGA Tour event out of the box, and the Rocket Mortgage Championship, which will be played a week after Travelers.

Other sports will also be watched. The NBA and Major League Soccer will try to create “bubbles” that are similar to what the PGA Tour is trying to do here as the two leagues prepare to play at Disney World.

The PGA Tour has the opportunity to become a standard bearer for sports moving forward in this pandemic era.

Keith Argenbright, from the University of Texas Southwestern, has worked with the PGA Tour with his testing and medical plans in the Colonial, and said the event was “burning to restart professional sport in America.”

“There are several tournaments scheduled after this, Hilton Head, Hartford and Detroit, so we always know that what we do at Fort Worth will be replicated in other tournaments,” Argenbright told The Post. “We always know that golf will go before hockey and basketball, and that other sports leagues will look for golf to see how they do it.

“I think there is a lot of pressure on the tour and there is pressure on the city of Fort Worth. We want to do this right. We don’t want to disappoint the PGA tour. We don’t want to disappoint other cities or sports leagues because we turn their toes out of their gates. ’

Justin Thomas, who is a member of the PGA Tours player advisory board, said “his level of curiosity was much higher maybe the last few months’ about how this would work” because everyone had lots of questions. “

“It will be different,” Thomas said. “You can’t get into this thinking it will be normal because it isn’t. I would say 2020 is beyond a strange year, and especially in the sport it will only be different.

“If we all want to go back and play the game we like … we just have to forget the fact that it will be different and strange. But this is a good opportunity for golf to grow more and reach a better level than now.

“Hopefully, people who might not normally watch golf see that we are the best players in the world and the best in our expertise, and we can do things that are very hard to believe with golf balls. So, hopefully everyone will enjoy. ‘

Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.



Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.

Maestro Filipe Cunha, Artistic Director of the Philharmonic Orchestra of Braga, has been invited to conduct the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra, as announced today.

According to a statement sent by O MINHO, “he will be the first Portuguese conductor to conduct this orchestra in its entire history.”

In addition to this orchestra, the maestro will also work with the Lyceo Mozarteum de la Habana Symphony Orchestra.

The concerts will take place on 4 and 12 March 2023 at the National Theater of Cuba in Havana.

In the words of the maestro, quoted in the statement, “these will be very beautiful concerts with difficult but very complex pieces” and therefore he feels “very motivated”.

From the very beginning, Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2 will be performed by an Italian pianist (Luigi Borzillo), whom the maestro wants to bring to Portugal later this year. In the same concert, Mendelshon’s First Symphony will be performed.

Then, at the second concert, in the company of the Mexican clarinetist Angel Zedillo, he will perform the Louis Sfora Concerto No. 2. In this concert, the maestro also conducts Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony.

“This is an international recognition of my work. An invitation that I accept with humility and great responsibility. I was surprised to learn that I would be the first Portuguese member of the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra. This is a very great honor,” the maestro said in a statement.

“I take with me the name of the city of Braga and Portugal with all the responsibility that goes with it, and I hope to do a good job there, leaving a good image and putting on great concerts. These will be very special concerts because, in addition to performing pieces that I love, especially Rachmaninov and Tchaikovsky, I will be directing two wonderful soloists who are also my friends. It will be very beautiful,” concludes Filipe Cunha.
