Choi was the early clubhouse leader on eight-under-par, with Ryu and Park matching her on the 18th to send it to a play-off. They couldn’t be separated on the first hole, all sinking birdies. Ryu was eliminated after the second, with Park winning her third LPGA title on the fourth hole after Choi hit the rough and couldn’t recover. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Smyth and Fraser kept in touch while New Zealand’s Fox made a late charge with a best-of-the-day 64, including an eagle at the last to apply some pressure. Lee remained focused until the 17th when he hit his first bogey of the day. But he regrouped to birdie the last to raucous applause from the crowd. South Korea’s Ayean Cho was the overnight women’s leader, but she had a horror final round of 81, as did Sweden’s Madelene Sagstrom, her nearest challenger after round three. Loading… Min Woo Lee followed in his sister’s footsteps by winning the innovative Vic Open Sunday, earning a two-year European Tour exemption in the process, as South Korea’s Park Hee-young claimed the women’s title after a play-off. Seen as one of Australia’s most exciting young talents, 21-year-old Lee showed nerves of steel to hold on to his overnight lead with a four-under-par 68 to win by two strokes from New Zealander Ryan Fox. Australian Min Woo Lee earned a two-year European Tour exemption by winning the Vic Open “It’s amazing, I have got to think it through,” said an ecstatic Lee of clinching his first tournament. “I just played awesome and out of myself. I’m over the moon” His older sister, world number nine Minjee Lee, won the tournament, where men and women tee off, in alternate groups on the same course and for equal prize money, in 2014 and 2018. Since her last triumph at the event – the only one of its kind in the world – it has taken on added significance with the European Tour and the US-based LPGA Tour jointly sanctioning it for the first time last year. She hit a one-over-par 73 Sunday to finish tied for sixth, two behind Park. “We’ve played twice before at tournaments and I’ve come out on top on the third time, so I guess I’m the better one,” Min Woo Lee joked when asked about earning bragging rights over his sister, who was on the 18th green to give him a congratulatory hug. Lee, a US junior champion, went into the final round at the 13th Beach Golf Links in Geelong, south of Melbourne, with a three-shot buffer from fellow Australians Marcus Fraser and Travis Smyth.

Audit of GCAA likely soon – new Director

first_imgBY SHEMUEL FANFAIRAn international audit on aviation is expected to be conducted into the operations of the Guyana Civil Aviation Authority (GCCA). Soon to be appointed Director General, Egbert Field, made this revelation at the welcoming ceremony of the inaugural flight of Fly AllWays airline at the Cheddi Jagan International Airport on Tuesday.His comments came on the heels that most air carriers operating out of Guyana are unable to land at airports in North America due to the lack of international Category One aviation status. On this note, Field told reporters that immediately upon him taking office, one of the priorities will be to raise the country’s level of compliance in line with the requirements of the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO).“No airline that is registered and based in Guyana has the ability to go to airports North America because we are in Category Two,” he noted.It was explained that ICAO representatives will soon be in Guyana to carry out an assessment after which it is hoped that the country can move from a Category Two status to Category One.“After the audit, depending on our level of compliance, we may have some corrective actions to do but I can see us moving toward Category One [which] we will gain from the FAA (Federal Aviation Authority)… gaining Category One will allow airlines starting up and basing themselves in Guyana will have the opportunity to fly to North America,” the new GCAA Director noted.With his 40 years of experience in the aviation sector, including some 30 years as a Guyana Airways pilot and later a stint in Jamaica’s Aviation Authority, Field posited that this has made him suitable to lead the country’s aviation sector.“I’m a retired Colonel, also a captain… with over 30 years experience flying – over 18,000 hours, I know what I can do for this industry and we may have a return to Guyana Airways in the future,” Field expressed.The retired military officer shared the view that Guyana achieving the improved aviation status is especially timely since he believes that air traffic will increase once the oil sector takes off.Established in March 2002, The Guyana Civil Aviation Authority is guided by Civil Aviation Act (2000) which governs navigation, licensing and security regulations for air transport services in Guyana.last_img read more
