Lahiri slips in third round, but stays in contention at Greenbrier

first_imgWhite Sulphur Springs (US), Jul 8 (PTI) Anirban Lahiri staged a terrific fightback after a disappointing front nine to bring home a card of one-over 71 in the third round of the Greenbrier Classic here. Lahiri who bogeyed first, second, seventh and ninth on front nine, stopped the leakage of shots in the back nine as he birdied 12th, 14th and 17th to take his total to 11-under 199. The Indian golfer slipped from overnight T-2 to T-6 but is still within striking distance at just three shots behind leader, Harold Varner (66). With the Old White TPC dried out on a sunny Saturday the scores weren’t as low as the first two days when rains softened the course. Yet there were no less than eight rounds of 63 or better. Lahiri, who holed a lot of long putts on second day, missed at least three inside six feet and another one from under nine feet. Varner is tied with second-round leader Kelly Kraft (69). Varner had four back-nine birdies after 10 consecutive pars. Kraft led by as many as four strokes but bogeyed two of the final three holes and shot one-under 69. Both were at 14-under 196. Fifteen golfers were within five shots of the lead. Defending champion Xander Schauffele and Kevin Na were at 13 under. Both shot 65. Kraft and Varner are looking for their first PGA TOUR wins in their 85th starts. Since this tournament debuted in 2010, there have been four first-time champions, but no third-round leader has won. The tournament has been decided by two or fewer strokes every year and has gone to a playoff three times. The 2016 tournament was cancelled after devastating floods.advertisement Sam Saunders was alone in fifth place at 12 under after a 67. Bubba Watson shot 65 and was among three players at 11 under. Watson hopes to add this tournament to his three other wins this season. Watson wants to honor his late father, Gerry, a Green Beret who fought in the Vietnam War. Watson also owns a vacation home at The Greenbrier Sporting Club. The top four players not already exempt among the top 12 finishers will earn spots in the Open Championship at Carnoustie starting July 19. PTI Cor ATKATKlast_img read more

British Columbia to eliminate medical service plan premiums in 2020

first_imgVICTORIA – A premium long viewed as a financial irritant in British Columbia that is paid by individuals and families for health care will be eliminated on Jan. 1, 2020.The provincial government had already announced it was cutting medical service plan premiums in half on Jan. 1, 2018, and in the provincial budget it took the next step to eliminate them.The government says once the premiums are eliminated, an individual will save up to $900 a year and families up to $1,800 annually.To cover the loss of revenue, the government will introduce a new payroll tax on Jan. 1, 2019.That means businesses with a payroll of more than $1.5 million will pay a tax of 1.95 per cent, those below $500,000 will be exempt, and employers whose payrolls fall in between will pay a lower rate.The Chartered Professional Accountants of British Columbia said the new tax will be a concern for businesses.“While this tax may not impact the coffee shop around the corner, it will impact many businesses within British Columbia,” said Lori Mathison, the organization’s president and CEO.The government says it collected $2.6 billion in premiums in the 2016-17 fiscal year, and the new payroll tax will provide $1.9 billion in revenue in 2019-20.Finance Minister Carole James said by eliminating the premium, it is falling in line with the other provinces.“B.C. is an outlier in Canada as the only province that levies unfair, regressive MSP premiums that penalize families and individuals,” she said in her budget speech to the legislature on Tuesday.The government says the premium cost a person earning $45,000 a year the same amount as someone making $250,000 annually, and the 1.95 per cent tax rate on payroll to help recover the loss of revenue is the lowest in Canada.James said the premiums were “complex and expensive” for businesses to administer.Eliminating them, she said, “will take some pressure of people’s pocketbooks. And it will make our tax system more fair and progressive.”last_img read more
