England’s Scott Gregory reaches Amateur Championship final

first_img17 Jun 2016 England’s Scott Gregory reaches Amateur Championship final England international Scott Gregory will face Scotland’s Robert MacIntrye in the final of the 121st Amateur Championship at Royal Porthcawl tomorrow. Gregory played steady golf and was never behind in the semi-final as he eliminated Poland’s Adrian Meronk by 3&2 to secure his place in the 36-hole final. MacIntyre came through a tense contest with Irishman Paul McBride at the second extra hole to set up the first Anglo-Scottish final since 2004 when Stuart Wilson defeated Lee Corfield at St Andrews. Gregory, who was runner-up in this year’s Spanish Amateur Championship, seized the initiative from the outset, winning the first hole with a par four after a slightly delayed start while surface water was cleared from the 1st green following a downpour. Although he slipped up with a double bogey six on the 3rd, the 21-year-old from Corhampton in Hampshire took control of the match around the turn, winning three out of five holes from the 8th to go 4 up. Meronk, who is part of the European Arnold Palmer Cup team which will face the USA at Formby next week, struggled to find the form which had taken him to the semi-final. Gregory, who was a finalist in the English Amateur Championship in 2014, sealed the win with a half in four at the 16th. He said afterwards: “I’m pretty chuffed – my game is in good shape and I’m hitting it really solidly tee to green. If I can just maintain that, keep hitting it close, and giving myself chances, I think I’ve got a good chance of getting something good tomorrow. “I knew I had to play well. If I didn’t play well I knew I wasn’t going to win. I just had to go out there and stick to my game plan – try and hit fairways and greens and give myself putts. Fortunately I was able to do that and apply some pressure and move on from there. I got things rolling and just held onto it really. “I’ve got a job tomorrow – I just need to take it one shot at a time – one hole at a time. If I play the best golf that I can play then I’ll be at The Open. But I’m not going to think too much about it.” In the second semi-final, MacIntyre, the 2015 Scottish Amateur champion, trailed for most of the front nine but moved in front with birdies at the 11th and 12th holes and when McBride bogeyed the next it looked difficult for him to find a way back. The Irishman battled back to win the 17th, however, and took the match down the last. When the left-handed MacIntyre (19) failed to get down in two with a putt from the back of the 18th green, the match was all square. On the first extra hole, McIntyre’s 10 ft birdie putt just missed on the left and the hole was halved. On the 20th, the Scot found the green in two but McBride was short and right of the green. He chipped to 35 ft and when he failed to hole the putt coming back, it left MacIntyre with two putts for the match and he duly took his place in the final. In the morning quarter-finals, Gregory saw off the challenge of Spain’s Javier Sainz by 5&4 while MacIntyre ended the run of another Spaniard, Ivan Cantero, with a 2&1 win. Meronk defeated Frenchman Nicolas Maheut by 5&4 and McBride edged out Scotland’s Ewen Ferguson by two holes. Scott Gregory image © Leaderboard Photographylast_img read more

Lost in time

first_imgMaihar in Madhya Pradesh is not your regular tourist destination. The musically inclined would know the place for Baba Allauddin Khan, the classical music maestro who founded the Maihar Gharana, while the religious congregate there for the Maa Sharda Shaktipeeth that sits atop the Trikoota hill. For the last two years, however, this sleepy, little town has been abuzz with frenetic artistic activity and has transformed itself into a unique canvas. Since early 2016, a path-breaking collaboration has been taking place between the indigenous communities of Madhya Pradesh and fourteen Indian and international artists. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfThe epicentre of all this activity has been at Art Ichol, founded by Kolkata gallerist and art collector Ambica Beri two years ago as an artists’ retreat which has now swiftly grown into a multi-disciplinary arts centre comprising an art gallery, artist studios and an open-air sculpture park. This partnership between artists and local communities is now culminating into an experiential, collective and interactive exhibition-cum-haat in New Delhi, curated by Nobina Gupta, under the evocative title of ‘Disappearing Dialogues’ at Bikaner House, India Gate, New Delhi till November 29. The project has been supported by MP Tourism and Arts Ananda Trust. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveFeaturing a diverse range of paintings, videos, wood and iron products, textiles and garments to films, book art, photography, furnishings – all created in collaboration with village folk of Ichol in Maihar and its surrounding areas – the event hopes to bring the focus back on the lost traditions and cultural practices of the area. “My vision for Art Ichol is not merely to provide inspiring and world class-facilities for artists to work in, but also bring art out of the limiting white-cube structure of a gallery space,” says Ambica Beri, founder, Art Ichol. ” Working with the community, enhancing their skills and being able to support them in finding alternate means of livelihood has always been an important vertical of Art Ichol and through the research-based ‘Disappearing Dialogues’ project, we have been able to reach out to many collaborators, government, artists, local communities and other important stakeholders,” she added. Nobina Gupta, initiator and curator of Disappearing Dialogues says, “MP is a place of vast enrichment and of abundant resources, of lost histories, cultures, musical legacies and traditions that are hidden deep in the area. The heritage and culture of indigenous communities should be valued and preserved before it disappears. Traditional practices of organic farming, brick making, and forest rejuvenation are excellent examples of alternate techniques for modern man to learn about sustainable living. For this reason, Ambica and I collaborated to invite national and international artists, practicing in different fields to come together for an interdisciplinary research and collaborative residency focusing on environment, culture, heritage and the indigenous community at Art Ichol in Maihar. The artists used their creative and research abilities to study disappearing practices and develop thought-provoking artwork and material in response to their findings.”The participating practitioners are Clare Elizabeth Kennedy (Architect, Australia), Ulrike Reinhard (Community Service and Traveller, Germany & Madhya Pradesh), Sandeep Dhopate (Photographer, Maharashtra), Trish Bygott & Nathan Crotty (Textile Designers, Australia), Lenny Rubenovitch (Wood and Furniture Artist, Canada), Pipson Sebastian Mampilli (Entrepreneur on Sustainable Living, Karnataka), Shilo Engelbrecht (Fashion and Textile Designer, Australia), Nobina Gupta (Visual and Installation artist, West Bengal) and many more.The project was undertaken at areas of Ichol, Maihar and its periphery, Satna, Rewa, Panna, Madhai, Umaria, Ucchera, Janwaar, Bharhut, Sukhana, Khajuraho and Govindgarh.Nobina Gupta, also a visual artist, through a series of archival boxes titled Dharohar, locates her work in the vernacular language of Bagheli which is gradually losing its relevance through generations. “It is interesting how from the Bagheli folk songs and poetries emerges an excellent vision of the land, its history, mythology, bio-diversity, dynamics of socio-cultural practices, reflecting a vivid picture that craves for authentic documentation. I also conducted a series of art connect workshops on paper kandas and designs on handmade local khaprels to inspire the children,” she said.last_img read more
