Daniel Berger wins Charles Schwab Challenge at Colonial as PGA Tour returns

Daniel Berger was playing some of the best golf that no one noticed. Three months away because of the COVID-19 pandemic didn’t slow his momentum, and he made it pay off Sunday with a victory at Colonial.

The PGA Tour made a healthy return to golf at the Charles Schwab Challenge with a somewhat sickly finish. Berger saved par from behind the 17th green on the first playoff hole and won when Collin Morikawa missed a 3-foot par putt.

Berger closed with a 4-under 66, his 28th consecutive round at par or better dating to Oct. 11 at the Houston Open.

Even over the final hour, a half-dozen players were still in the mix. All that was missing was the sound and energy of a gallery, with the PGA Tour not allowing spectators for the opening five events in its return.

Berger won for the third time — all victories

Finally the curse is lifting. As of this week, travellers can once again move freely between most of the 22 EU countries in the Schengen area. But despite the fact that thousands of flights are scheduled to most of those countries over the next few weeks, and ferries and the Eurostar are operating, we Brits remain shackled. The Foreign Office continues to advise against all but essential travel, even though all those Schengen countries have a significantly lower rate of Covid-19 infection than the UK. And if we decide bravely to go anyway, we will have to submit ourselves to compulsory self-isolation for 14 days after we return.

Here’s the situation on the continent. Last week, the European Home Affairs Commissioner Ylva Johansson, urged Schengen members to lift as many restrictions as possible so

  • Molly-Mae and Tommy Fury recently moved into a new home and Molly gave fans a tour over the weekend.

Love Island’s Molly-Mae Hague returned to social media over the weekend after taking a break following the death of her puppy Mr Chai. The Islander was left heartbroken after the Pomeranian, who was imported from Russia, died due to a series of health issues six days after she got him as a present for her 21st birthday.

After Molly-Mae revealed the sad news online, she faced a backlash from some critics who questioned whether importing a dog was necessary travel during the coronavirus pandemic, and said there are plenty of dogs without homes in the UK. The criticism eventually led her to take a break from social media.

However,

With majors later, Woods should be in no hurry to return

HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. (AP) — When it comes to Tiger Woods returning to the PGA Tour, it’s all about the calendar.

Nothing raised hopes that he would be at Hilton Head like a website tracking yachts that showed his Privacy on its way to Sea Island off the Georgia coast, about 80 miles south of the RBC Heritage, this week.

Woods played Hilton Head only in 1999 (he tied for 18th), but this is a different kind of year.

Then again, it’s also the 13th birthday of his daughter on Thursday, and that’s likely what Woods was doing around Sea Island.

But there’s more to the calendar, and there’s no need for Woods to be in any rush.

True, the PGA Tour has been shut down since March 12 because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Everyone at Colonial was eager to get back to the competition, and some mentioned a
