PGA champion Collin Morikawa shook off an early mistake and played a steady hand on a Concession golf course known for calamity, closing with a 3-under 69 for a three-shot victory in the Workday Championship. Morikawa picked up a few short-game tips from major champions — Mark O'Meara on his putting, Concession member Paul Azinger on the chipping — and he says it carried him to another big win. “We don't say ‘Thank you’ enough,” Morikawa said, referring to how much Woods has raised the profile and prize money in golf.

VILA-REAL, Spain (Reuters) - Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone heaped praised on Joao Felix after the 21-year-old responded to being benched for Sunday's match at Villarreal by scoring as a substitute to seal a badly-needed 2-0 win in La Liga. Atletico's 126-million-euro ($152 million) forward was excluded from the starting lineup for the second time in three matches and had been largely ineffective when he did start in Tuesday's 1-0 defeat to Chelsea in the Champions League. He was introduced at the start of the second half with his side a goal up against Villarreal and settled their nerves with an instinctive volley, scoring for the first time since late January.

Qualifying for next season's Champions League remains AC Milan's main focus even though they are also in the running to secure the Serie A title for the first time in a decade following a 2-1 win at AS Roma on Sunday, coach Stefano Pioli said. The Rossoneri topped the league standings until two weeks ago, and Sunday's thrilling win in Rome made sure the gap with Inter, who lead by four points, did not get any wider. Pioli suggested that moving eight points clear of Roma in fifth place could be more significant for his side in the final few months of the season.
Japanese companies are ramping up the use of artificial intelligence and other advanced technology to reduce waste and cut costs in the pandemic, and looking to score some sustainability points along the way. Disposing of Japan's more than 6 million tonnes in food waste costs the world's No.3 economy some 2 trillion yen ($19 billion) a year, government data shows. With the highest food waste per capita in Asia, the Japanese government has enacted a new law to halve such costs from 2000 levels by 2030, pushing companies to find solutions.

Former President Trump said Sunday that he may run for president a third time in 2024, and said the Supreme Court “should be ashamed of themselves” for refusing to overturn President Biden’s victory. Trump spoke for well over an hour, after arriving more than an hour late, at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Orlando, […]
Donald Trump returned to the spotlight Sunday telling enthusiastic conservatives that he may run for president again in 2024, as he sought to reassert his dominance over a Republican Party that is out of power. The 74-year-old addressed the Conservative Political Action Conference in Orlando in a highly-anticipated keynote speech.But while he teased his future plans, he left the crowd guessing about whether he will challenge President Joe Biden in a rematch."Actually you know they just lost the White House," Trump said of Democrats, again promoting the falsehood that Trump was denied a second term because of election fraud."But who knows -- who knows?" he boomed. "I may even decide to beat them for a third time, OK?"Banned from Twitter and other social media, Trump has maintained a low profile at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida since he left the White House on January 20. At the CPAC event, he walked out on stage to revel in a lengthy standing ovation by cheering loyalists, the vast majority maskless despite the coronavirus pandemic."The incredible journey we began together... is far from being over," Trump said of his populist movement. "And in the end, we will win."Trump also put to rest the rumors that he might take his base of support to create a new political party."I am not starting a new party," Trump said. "We have the Republican Party. It's going to unite and be stronger than ever before."Trump as expected took swipes at Biden, saying the Democrat just concluded "the most disastrous first month" of any modern president.But he also painted America as a land divided."Our security, our prosperity and our very identity as Americans is at stake," he said, in a rambling speech that attacked immigrants, slammed "cancel culture," and criticised Biden policies on climate change, energy, and election integrity.'Cautionary note' US political parties usually face a reckoning after a string of setbacks such as those the Republicans saw under four years of Trump: losing the White House, the Senate and the House of Representatives.The party is also marked with Trump's repeated lies about his election loss, his impeachment over inciting the US Capitol riot on January 6, and the faultline his actions have caused between establishment Republicans and pro-Trump populists.But, instead of jettisoning its troubled leader and charting a new path to claw back relevance, much of the party still sees Trump as retaining a vice-like grip on its future. It is a perception he has encouraged, setting himself up as a vindictive Republican kingmaker. On Friday he endorsed an ex-aide against an Ohio congressman who voted to impeach him.At least at CPAC, enthusiasm for Trump remained sky high. Attendees posed next to a shiny gold-colored statue of the former president, and cheers rose up whenever panelists praised him.In a straw poll conducted at the conference and released just before Trump's speech, nearly seven in 10 respondents said they want him to run again.On future direction for the party, support for Trumpism was rock solid, with 95 percent of respondents wanting to continue Trump's policies and agenda.But when asked who they prefer as the party's nominee in 2024, a moderate 55 percent chose Trump, with Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, the de facto CPAC host, was a distant second with 21 percent.Respected Republican strategist Karl Rove said he would have expected a stronger result for Trump, especially at a confab that appears so supportive of the ex-president."I'd take that as a cautionary note," Rove said on Fox News."He needs to refresh his act."For some Republicans like Senator Bill Cassidy, who voted to convict Trump in the impeachment trial, moving on from the brash billionaire is critical."We've got to win in two years, we've got to win in four years," Cassidy told CNN's State of the Union."We'll do that by speaking to those issues important to the American people -- and there's a lot of issues important to them right now -- not by putting one person on a pedestal."(AFP)
