Tiger looks to stretch win streak

first_imgJim Furyk is the No. 2 seed and will play Brett Quigley. Third-seeded Adam Scott faces Shaun Micheel, and Phil Mickelson has the No. 4 seed and will play fellow lefty Richard Green of Australia. The most compelling matches feature Ryder Cup teammates – Sergio Garcia against Darren Clarke in one match, Padraig Harrington against Lee Westwood in another. And in a reminder that anything goes in this event, Geoff Ogilvy plays Steve Stricker in a match of past champions who were seeded No. 55 (Ogilvy) and No. 52 (Stricker) when they won. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

He has won those seven tournaments by a combined 22 shots, is 109 under par and has posted 24 of his last 28 rounds in the 60s. The math is much more simple at the Accenture Match Play Championship, which begins today. The 64-man field assembled in the high desert of The Gallery Golf Club represents the best in the world from 17 countries. The only guy Woods cares about today is Ryder Cup teammate J.J. Henry, his first opponent. How fickle is this tournament? Woods won in 2004 during his worst season on tour, when he went through another overhaul of his swing. He was in top form two years earlier, winning the Masters and U.S. Open, yet he couldn’t get past Peter O’Malley in the first round of the Accenture. “You can shoot 65 and lose. You can shoot 73 and win,” Henry said. “You never know what you’re going to get. Of course, I know if I play Tiger and shoot 73, I might as well pack my bags.” Henry is fortunate to even be in the field. He was expecting to be the first alternate until Charl Schwartzel of South Africa decided to withdraw on Sunday and play at home in Telkom PGA Championship on the Sunshine Tour, where he has a chance to win the Order of Merit. center_img To make it eight in a row, he has to win six in a row. “This has always been one of the tougher events to win just because of the nature of the format,” Woods, the No. 1 seed, said. “Match play, anything that happens is unpredictable. Sometimes, it takes a great round to advance. Sometimes, you can shoot over par and advance. All I know is you have to beat one guy at a time. You don’t have to beat a whole field. Just six guys.” last_img read more

Google launches Datally data saving app for Android

first_imgGoogle launches Datally data saving app for Android by Martin Brinkmann on November 30, 2017 in Google Android – Last Update: May 22, 2018 – 5 commentsGoogle launched its new data saving app Datally: mobile data-saving & WiFi app for the Android operating system today.Datally requires a device running Android 5.0 or higher, and is available globally. While Google hopes that Datally will help Android users save data when using mobile data connections, it is not a compression or proxy type of solution.Datally is an analytics application that supports some features — blocking of data use by certain applications in real-time and connecting to suggested public WiFi networks — that help save mobile data.The company ran a limited beta test of the app earlier this year and notes that users saved about 30% of mobile data on average when using the application.DatallySo, it is not an extension of Data Saver for Chrome on Android for instance. Google designed Datally with three core things in mind:Help Android users better understand data usage.Help Android users better control data.Save data.Datally keeps track of mobile data that is used on the Android device it runs on. It records the data and which program uses the data, and provides users with information on that.Google added a Data Saver feature to Datally that utilizes public wireless networks. If enabled, Data Saver will block background data usage and monitor it in real-time at the same time.The app displays a bubble in the notification area of the device that informs you about the apps that used mobile data, and lists an option right there to turn it off.Datally informs you about public WiFi networks on top of that and helps you locate those to use WiFi instead of mobile data.The last option does not pick up public wireless networks that the phone’s sensors pick up, but suggests publicly known wireless networks. The closest in my case was 300 meters away from my location, the farthest away 1 kilometer. You can get directions to those which will open Google Maps on the device. You can rate wireless networks from within the application, and it appears that Google uses the information when it makes recommendations to users.Setup is not super straightforward unfortunately. Datally requires permissions to the phone, SMS and location. If you deny these, it won’t run.It also needs access to certain other features on the device before you can make use of its full functionality.Closing WordsDatally is an analytics and data saving application for Android. It displays information on mobile data use to you when you run it, and may be used to control the mobile data use of applications, and to find and connect to public wireless networks.Now You: What’s your free mobile data quota?Summary12345 Author Rating2 based on 9 votes Software Name DatallyOperating System AndroidSoftware Category AppsLanding Page https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.google.android.apps.freighter Advertisementlast_img read more
