Private companies step in to help SEA Games hosting “But it is what it is.”It looked like Molinari might run away with his second major in two years during the first part of the round. He made six straight pars as others faltered. When he walked to the No. 7 tee box, he had a three-shot lead, looking unfazed by what was happening around him.He made bogey on No. 7 to end his par-or-better streak at 49 holes, but recovered with a birdie on No. 8. At the turn, he was still two shots ahead.But the first double bogey on 12 dropped him into a tie for the lead. The second on 15 sent him tumbling out of contention.“You cannot open the door to those kids of great players,” Molinari’s caddie Pello Iguaran said. “So you see what happens.”By the time 18 approached, the roars from the crowd had turned toward Tiger. The opportunity for his second major title had disappeared.“I’m really happy of the way I felt out there,” Molinari said. “I was calm, collected, never panicked — even after the first double bogey. I learned a lot of things today.“I did a few things I wish I had done differently now, but I learn from my mistakes.” SEA Games hosting troubles anger Duterte Francesco Molinari, of Italy, takes a drop on the 12th hole during the final round for the Masters golf tournament, Sunday, April 14, 2019, in Augusta, Ga. (AP Photo/David J. Phillip)AUGUSTA, Ga. — Francesco Molinari was gracious in defeat, despite losing control of the Masters following a wet and disappointing back nine.Just two bad shots, that’s all it took.

But a couple of bad swings erased all that good work in a hurry.“From my point of view, it’s just a step along the way,” Molinari said. “I think it wasn’t my day today. That ball on 12, if it is one yard further left it goes in the bunker (instead of the water). The third shot on 15, it could easily have not clipped the tree.“Sometimes it’s your day. Sometimes it isn’t.”Molinari said he hit an 8-iron on the decisive 12th hole. Last year’s British Open champion said the wind was difficult to judge on Sunday and he didn’t always have the control he wanted.“We picked the right shot.” Molinari said. “I just didn’t hit it hard enough. Simple as that. It was tough today with the wind gusting. I managed to scramble well on the front nine.

The Duke of Cambridge gave a passionate speech about the illegal wildlife trade at the World Bank in Washington DC earlier this week.During the speech, the Duke announced that a taskforce, chaired by former Foreign Secretary William Hague, would be established to examine the transport industry’s role in the illegal wildlife trade and identify ways “the sector can break the chain between suppliers and consumers”.“The task force will bring together key partners and representatives of the transport sector, underpinned by expert legal advice,” he said. “It will draw together existing evidence and information about the illegal wildlife trade, identify gaps in knowledge, and commission research to plug those gaps.“The taskforce will call on companies to implement a “zero tolerance” policy towards the trade. Criminals are able to exploit weak and corrupt standards, so we must raise those standards, collectively.“I am delighted that William Hague, the former British Foreign Secretary and chair of the London Conference on the Illegal Wildlife Trade held earlier this year, is here today and has agreed to chair an international taskforce.“Within a year, the taskforce will work with the transport industry to develop recommendations for how it can play its part in shutting down wildlife trafficking trade routes; with the sole intention that the implementation of these recommendations will lead to a tangible and significant reduction in the illegal wildlife trade.“Cooperation is our greatest weapon against the poachers and traffickers who rely on evading individual national initiatives. By taking a truly international approach, we can get one step ahead of them.“Our collective goal must be to reduce the wildlife trade by making it harder: denying traffickers access to transportation, putting up barriers to their illegal activities, and holding people accountable for their actions. Those who look the other way, or spend the illicit proceeds of these crimes, must be held to account.“Some people may say that this is an impossibly difficult task. It is true that like any organized crime, the illegal wildlife trade is a many-headed hydra. Tackling it will be a complex challenge.”To read the full speech, click here.
