FARMINGDALE, N.Y.— He appeared slightly subdued, and his play, in stretches, was substandard. Tiger Woods’s opening round of the 101st PGA Championship Thursday possessed more than a hint of rust that simply was too much for him to overcome. Having not competed since his emotion-laden victory in the Masters and fighting an unknown ailment that limited […]

FARMINGDALE, N.Y. — Tiger Woods’ Monday practice round finished on the ninth hole. Course cartographers will note this is one of the farthest points from the clubhouse at Bethpage Black, a byproduct of the out-and-back design and a trek that feels like it requires a sherpa. Especially in this weather, Long Island kissed with sub-50 […]

When asked “What do you want to be when you grow up?”, a common response from young students interested in animals is “a veterinarian.” Although becoming a veterinarian is a noble and valued profession, one that certainly appeals to a wide range of people, both young and old, more often than not students are simply unaware of the vast opportunities available to them in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) fields that align directly with their passions. Opportunities that can advance human understanding of complex issues, provide life-saving research or solve difficult problems.

Last summer, I took the first steps of my college journey by signing up for College Bound Academy (CBA) at the TGR Learning Lab in Anaheim, CA. Coming from the Phillipines, I grew up with no prior knowledge of the U.S. education system. As the oldest among my siblings, I often had to turn to my friends for guidance. I followed their actions in hopes that what I was doing was right, but I realized that I shouldn’t be dependent on them. From then on, I took charge of my life and made myself responsible for my future.
Within two and a half weeks, I realized the significance and impact of friendship on the other side of the globe. I have had friends back home for years, many of whom I met during my first two years at Stony Brook University in New York. However, the ones I met throughout my study abroad experience in Florence, Italy were memorable. These friends were significant because through them and my short time abroad, I came to realize something about myself and learned exactly how I was meant to live my life.

Dan Kilbridge, author for Golfweek AUGUSTA, Ga. – It was only a matter of time for Tiger Woods. He knew he could win big again as soon as he knew he was physically able to play golf again, and he won big Sunday at Augusta National. It could have happened at Carnoustie or Bellerive, but […]

Dan Kilbridge, author for Golfweek AUGUSTA, Ga. – The thing about not constantly holding a cellphone is it allows you to slap both hands with random strangers and fist pump everyone within arm’s reach. There was a lot of that happening Friday as Tiger Woods played his way into contention during a mesmerizing afternoon at […]
Bill Speros, author for Golfweek Augusta, GA – Tiger Woods showed plenty of roar during Round 1 of the Masters Thursday, crushing drives down the fairway and displaying plenty of flare from Augusta National’s crushed-marble bunkers and its “second cut.” He even held a share of the lead at 3-under on the back nine before […]
