4 ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, JULY 19, 2018 Hernandez, standing at around 5 feet in stature, said seat height was among the most important factors to her. Seriously, I dont like it when my butt is too close to the ground, Hernandez said with a smile. The top three chairs were: Seat F, a round blue chair; seat G, a second rounded chair with black trim, and seat C, a stout cushioned chair with sleek wooden arms, Pope said at the conclusion of the survey. Pope is hoping to price the chairs so that a cost-effective winner can be selected.BUTTS, from pg. 1Ten chairs were testedMiller and his fellow co-organizer, Brian Wilson, created a webpage to recruit the artists, Miller said. He was surprised at how many artists just stepped right up to the plate. When you see these mannequins, they are so stunning, he said. The whole presentation collectively could easily be in the Harn or the Chicago Museum of Art. Nobody held back. Mathia, a local muralist and elementary school nurse, regularly participates in art markets and art walks in town. Her mannequin piece is called Innerlight, which has a removable candleholder at the Rainbow Spirits neck. Mathia used a common theme in her artwork for her mannequin -colorful, acrylic-painted faces with closed eyes. The closed eyes are symbolic of not looking through lenses of difference and seeing that everyone shares similar feelings inside, she said. It was just nice to see the (art and LGBTQ+) communities come together for this because I feel like we all have a very similar goal, which is absolute expression and freedom of choice, which I think art is truly about, Mathia said. The money from the auctions will go to the Pride Community Center and Pride 2018, Miller said. The Pride Community Center provides HIV testing, support for people with AIDS and support groups for the LGBTQ+ community. Pride has a very strong presence in this community, but its very insulated, Miller said. Diversity is a strength, and thats what the entire country is founded on, and yet were just so focused on dividing each other. Thats why I think this is such a great event. RAINBOW, from pg. 1Auction will fund HIV testingDeferred salary is income set aside and paid to an employee after he or she has earned it. In Fuchs case, he will receive it UF ends. Orlando said Fuchs current base pay and additional reportable compensation are $899,087 and $215,000 respectively, totaling $1,114,087. Two hundred thousand dollars of the presidents salary comes from state funding, and the remaining balance comes from private sources, Orlando said. The $215,000 payment includes a retirement contribution as well as the taxable value of his life and disability insurances, he said. of UF, Fuchs is responsible for working with the Board of Trustees to oversee the universitys academics, research, foundations, organizations and budgeting. For me, all hes known for is wearing quirky things and (welcoming) students, Archer said. I would do more research on what he does. Knowing what he does will probably help me better understand why he gets paid that much. While Fuchs may be on the top-10 list for highest-paid public college executives, he isnt the top-earning employee of the university. Both Dr. Mark S. Bleiweis, UF Health program director, and Dr. David S. Guzick, UF Health senior vice president, earn higher wages. The Chronicle reported that Bleiweis made $1,375,043 in 2017 while Guzick made $1,499,211 in 2017 both over a quarter million more than Fuchs.

In the show, contestants try to outsmart the famous magicians with their magic act. If the secret behind the performance cannot be determined by either of the judgtrip to Las Vegas to perform as the opening act in Penn and Tellers live show. The show will premiere Monday at 8 p.m. discuss the nature of her act and experience on the show she even stumped me with her trick. Q: Where did the idea for your magic trick come from, and how did you develop it into a performance? project for my (creative psychology) class 72 percent of our grade. We worked on it for the majority of the semester. The idea for the act came from a lot of trial and error. Because Im a psychology major, the area of magic I wanted to focus on was mentalism because I can relate it to my psychology class a bit better, and Im obviously interested in the human mind and how mentalism works. I learned one really basic one in which someone picks a card, and I guess it reading their body language. After a while, it just became way too easy, so I decided to up it. Instead of giving a person a pack of cards, I gave them a phone, and instead of picking one out of 52 cards, they pick out of 500 songs while I guess what song it is. For the show, I increased it to 1,600 songs. Q: How did you get to be featured on Penn & Teller: Fool Us? A: I was a fan of the show when ther and I really enjoyed watching it. We thought it was really funny, and it was always really entertaining. I emailed the producers actually right after my (creative psychology) class ended saying that I was a female magician. I had a trick that was original, and I wanted to see if they had an interest. They said son 4 and to email back later in the year. I emailed them in November and said, Hey, are you guys still interested in seeing this audition tape? and they said, Sure, why not? sent it in, got an email back in midDecember saying that they liked it, and they wanted me to be on the show. Gainesville airport during Spring Break to Las Vegas, I practiced for thing, and then I performed. Q: What were your emotions throughout your performance? A: My No. 1 goal was to just remain as calm as possible. A lot of people go on the show and try to fool Penn and Teller, or basically do a trick they cant guess, so a lot of people stress out beforehand. But my goal was more I just want to survive this television appearance. Q: Although you cant give spoilers, how was your overall experience on the show? A: It was overall super enjoyable. All the people were really really nice. All the people found it interesting that I had only been doing magic for a year, while a lot of them were like career magicians. Regardless of the outcome, I accomplished my goal, which is showing that women can go up and do magic and theres not a lot of women who do that and to be a presence for people, especially girls who maybe want to go into this industry to practice magic to show that they can do it. Q: What are your plans for the future after the show has aired? Do you plan on pursuing a career as a magician? A: I have an internship lined up in Orlando, and I plan on doing summer, but after that Im currently applying for Ph.D. programs. But my future plans dont really involve being a professional magilike to keep tabs on. Q: I have to ask could you tell us the secret behind your trick? A: No (laughs), Im sorry. But when it airs, Im sure someone on YouTube will blatantly guess it. This interview has been edited for length.

Editorial Column Who bears the costs? How we lost our 24/7 LibraryIt started out innocently enough. Overnight hours for libraries had been a hot topic for several years in Student Government-land before year. Keep this in mind: SG was the entity that started funding overnight library hours (this will become more important later on). As I mentioned last week, then came Newell Hall whose pretty high operating costs forced us to cut most of the money we used to boost Library Wests hours. SG simply felt that they did not have the money to keep Newell open in addition to keeping Wests overnight hours. So, SG then chose the cheaper move and adjusted Library Wests hours as noted by a past The Alligator article. Then came the controversy, then came the Provost stepping in to help fund the pilot program which measured Library Wests and Newell Halls usage in Fall 2017. During that time, the Provost helped fund Library Wests extended hours. Then, in December 2017, there was a curious platform tracker video published on the SG page. In it, former Student Body President Smith Meyers and former Senate President Ian Green appear, announcing that Library West will again be 24/7 for the upcoming spring. You spoke, and we listened. Using the data from this survey, as well as the 24/5 pilot program this past fall, we have worked with the Provost to secure funding for Library West to be open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, says Green. The rest of the video is mostly the two of them fawning over themselves for being able to have two 24/7 study spaces on campus. Watch for yourself; this video really didnt age well at all. Looks like a happy ever after ending, right? Wrong. What the video failed to provide any indication of was this funding that SG had secured with the Provost was just for an addistudy, The results from this initial (fall) study were primarily opinions provided through survey responses, so Provost Glover agreed to fund overnight hours at Library West again in spring 2018 to collect data on occupancy and utilization. Then, the study ended. SG was asked for their decision. An email sent to the Provost from the Dean of Libraries goes like so: After carefully reviewing the results of the analysis, Student Government has concluded that it will not fund overnight hours for Library West. Instead, they will make improvements in Newell Hall to address Sure sounds like it was an SG decision to me. The framing of the aftermath from President Green was a bit different, however, as recorded made their decision based on the data collected, Student Body President Ian Green said. At Senate this past Tuesday night, we heard a lot more of this shifting of blame to the Provost. There, Green talked about how Library West was an academic building that our tuition already funds; thus, students shouldnt have to double-pay for the libraries by having SG supplement the tuitionfunded libraries with student fee-funded SG money. Sounds pretty agreeable, I suppose. The stance of our SG administration, it appears, is that our university should fund Wests 24/7 hours even though SG has traditionally been the entity that has funded the supplemental overnight hours. Could SG have continued to fund Newell while funding Library West? I believe so, its just that the way I see it were not funding Library Wests overnight hours in our attempt to get our university administration to provide the funding. Its SG versus the university administration and, unfortunately, the students are the civilian casualties while neither entity funds the Library Wests overnight hours. like I said I would Maybe next week?

Youre settling down in Jellystone National Park, preparing for a nice pic-a-nic. Your paws unfurl a checkered blanket while your date unloads the contents of your basket: Bluebeary pie with honey, some ice-cold bruins and, of course, bear claws. You begin to enjoy your afternoon lunch. The conversation takes a turn for the spiritual. Hey baby, whats ursine? You feel that question is a bit polarizing, so you change the subject. You take out your Kodiak camera and snap a photo to remember the moment. Before long, you feel your eyes getting heavier and lie down for a quick hibernation. try to fend off a swarm of bees. But it isnt working. They maul you head to toe before you wake up in a cold sweat. You look around to see that your date has abandoned you. How barbear-ic. As if things werent bad enough, you cant get your bearings about you. You look down at your map, only to discover the markings and locations have been replaced withDARTS AND LAURELSHollywood has never had a shortage of bear movies. Ted, The Revenant and Brigsby Bear are just a few movies prevalently featuring bears in starring roles. Theyve conveyed everything from family values and fart jokes to brutal attempted murder. In a world where originality is often downplayed in favor of nostalgia, a new movie set to be released in August features a grown-up Christopher Robin in need of the spark of imagination and child-like innocence. Despite the more-than-likely uplifting tale, were dishing out a dart to Christopher Robin. And it isnt just for the movie. The adult Robin is being played by Ewan McGregor, and We assign a dart to the Paddington series as a whole. It attempted to do what the Curious George series already did: crush our childhood dreams. Paddington deserves no more time in our lives than what weve allotted. By far the best of the bear-themed movies is the Yogi stant companion (but really, we all know) Boo Boo attempt to save their beloved Jellystone National Park from the seedy hands of the citys corrupt mayor. One might expect a remake of an iconic cartoon to be horseating dialogue bits and poorly computer-generated characsilly and feel good movie about the merits of protecting what is good. Of loving and caring for our environment. Yogi and the other characters numerous futile plans to save the park demonstrate the realities of bipartisanship but show us that the important things are often universal. Thus we award a laurel to the live-action Yogi Bear movie for its loving attempt at translating American values into a modern vessel. We admire its nod to the the things that will outlive us. But it has us wishing we had an endangered turtle to save all of Americas national parks.Morgan McMullen EDITOR Bailey LeFever MANAGING EDITOR Sarah Stanley UNIVERSITY EDITOR Baylie Cainas METRO EDITORZachariah The Alligator will be withheld if the writer shows just cause.

UFs campus is full of nature and, with it, sustainability efforts to protect it. Sustainability, protected natural areas and extensive major and minor studies and classes concerning environmental issues or topics like sustainability, wildlife, agriculture, reporting and more. The signature live oak trees stand alongside Albert and Alberta, Century Tower, Gothic-style brick buildings and more as key elements that make UFs campus. These trees that are perfect for hammocking can often be under-appreciated or taken for granted. Almost a year ago when hurricanes struck Gainesville, the historic tree in front the New Physics Building met its end. Riding past it on my 120 bus route down Museum Road, I noticed its missing place. That was an obvious change leaving a big empty space. But you ing Turlington Plaza and plastic bottles clogging campus trash cans if you look closely. Marjory Stoneman cate for Florida ecosystems. She once said you cant conserve what you havent got. I think Gainesville is a city that innately has this mentality. A short drive away from Paynes Prairie Preserve State Park, Gainesville is a highly ranked bike-friendly city that is also known as Tree City USA. UF has this identity too with some of its earliest education dealing with agriculture. The legacy. And its a legacy I didnt realize how connected I was to until recently. My grandma told me her aunt, who lived in Gainesville, was married to a UF professor of 30 years who worked in the soils and water science department. I couldnt believe the story since I only knew about my parents going to and meeting at UF. Thanks to family stories, I realize I am able to enjoy some of the same spaces they did because of conservation and sustainable practices. Sustainability is everywhere on campus: the notices for recycling and electricity in dorms, waand compostable paper towels in the bathof Sustainabilitys site. UF is recognized for many environmental achievements like an Audubon International includes conservation elements to preserve the unique ecosystems across campus. There are 31 conservation areas, some available to explore like walking trails or Lake Wauburg. Part of UF culture seems to be appreciating nature and community. Nature meets indoors as vines climb brick and windows overlook green spaces. Students convene at Krishna lunch on the Plaza of the Americas or study hanging in a hammock by Lake Alice. UF bucket list items include plenty of nature and should include participating in some sort of preservation project, like working in the Field and Fork Pantry garden or participating in a Sustainability UF event so future students can continue to enjoy the natural spaces that give UF its name: The Swamp. As the tune goes, in all kinds of weather people across campus work to sustain campus and its natural history and environment through education, conservation and clean-ups. Sophie Feinberg is a UF journalism junior. Her column comes out Tuesday and Thursday. THURSDAY, JULY 19, 2018 ALLIGATOR 7 TM rfn tbtrb trr Florida State University President John Thrasher announced this week that the university will be removing a controversial statue of one of its founders, Francis W. Eppes. Eppes was the grandson of former President Thomas Jefferson and owned up to 91 slaves. He was on the side of the Confederacy at the time of the Civil War and has been called especially racist by Thrasher. He was a mayor of Tallahassee and donated money and land, which led to the creation of Florida State University. A student referendum in 2016 shot down plans to remove the statue with 71 percent of students voting to keep the statue in place. Thrasher, advised by his Advisory Panel on University Namings and Recognitions, decided the statue will be removed because, in addition to his racism, Eppes role as founder is overstated. College Republicans of FSU released a statement regarding this decision. They claimed the president had ...(caved) to the whims of a loud minority... and simply ignores (Eppes) generosity. The issued statement has some logical in the otherwise shining history of Florida State University, but then goes on to say we dont condone Mr. Eppess ownership of slaves... This doesnt make sense because it was directly Eppes ownership of slaves and the land that he owned as a plantation that allowed him to form the university. Calling this history a shining one seems like a reach. Then the letter quotes George Santayana saying Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it. We can only pray likely futilely that we will be an exception to this rule. Likely futilely? What does that mean? Are they saying they see some kind of slavery comeback in the future? In this statement, they have indirectly acknowledged certain members of the country are open to returning to a state of discrimination and oppression. The College Republicans of FSU have failed to understand the importance of context in history. By removing the statue, Thrashers intentions were not to erase history. There is a difference between remembering and honoring. In this country, a statute is reserved as a symbol of honor. We raise memorials to people who should be example citizens. Choosing not to honor someone doesnt equate to forgetting history. In 2017, only 8.3 percent of students at FSU were black. This makes the fact that only 29 percent of students voted for the removal unsurprising. Black students make up a minority of the school, but I think their say in the matter should be considered equally if not more than non-black students because their ancestors could have been directly oppressed by Eppes. Not to mention the hostile on-campus environment that could be created because of an intimidating statue that almost encourages racism. There are plenty of ways to acknowledge Eppes good deeds while providing context. When we talk about how he contributed to the creation of FSU, we have to tell the story from all angles. Explaining the fact that he owned slaves puts the story into the true context and allows people to make up their own minds as to his character. Accurate history is taught through honest textbooks and museums not by glorifying individuals with icons. Layla Soboh is a UF advertising junior.

Once Kylie Jenner beauty enthusiasts alike knew that this was the summer of a healthy, natural appearance. Here are a few of the unpleasant effects of the sun and how to combat them naturally with some items that can be found around the house. Oily Skin: Typically, oil coming from the skin means your skin is moisturizing itself. However, time in the sun can cause your skin to produce excess oil and lead to acne breakouts. To prevent excess oil from clogging your pores, use apple cider vinegar as a great natural cleanser that also provides its own moisture. Wrinkly Skin: Too much sun exposure overtime can cause the skin to lose elasticity. To get the spring back in your skin, use aloe vera and lemon. Both ingredients and the lemon, with its vitamin C, helps the skin produce collagen, giving skin back its natural plumpness. Discoloration: Sun spots, redness, hyperpigmentation; this type of discoloration of the skin can be caused from sun exposure. Lately, a lot of make-up videos have shown the use of what seems like just fancy water, but rose water has a lot effective, light toner to keep your complexion even and clear. Dry or dehydrated skin: Its summer, which means its hot and you sweat. Sweating can cause you to lose a lot of water. The most natural way to regain moisture is, of course, drinking water. However, sometimes that isnt enough. For a deep overnight hydrating treatment, rinse your face in cold water, and then use coconut oil. The oil penetrates the skin to restore moisture, and as a bonus, it restores collagen to make you look like youve never dealt with stress in your life.Natural remedies for the natural summer look LIFESTYLE By Lindsey BrenemenAvenue WriterFour Florida bands rocked High Dive last Friday for its seventh birthday party.

10 ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, JULY 19, 2018 By Emma McAvoyAvenue WriterAccording to recent UF graduate Nicole Cannon, vintage is back and better than ever. Cannon has expressed her love for vintage clothing since she was 16. She developed this unique sense of style in her sophomore year of high school, when she began to realize that none of frame quite right. The clothes Id buy werent appropriate for school or auditions because I was just starting to get into theater, Cannon said. My theater teacher, who was really into costuming and vintage clothing, referred me to thrift wardrobe. Cannon explained how she stumbled upon really unique pieces for really cheap. I was able to assemble a wardrobe so much faster because it was so much cheaper than buying retail, Cannon said. As her style journey began, Cannon said she found many unique pieces at thrift stores and began to put them together in different ways to create her own wardrobe. Cannons inspiration for her style stemmed from her research on old movies from the golden age of Hollywood. Most of this inspiration came from the women of the 1940s and 1950s, such as Grace Kelly, Rita Hayworth, Betty Grable and, of course, none other than the iconic Marilyn Monroe. I just think (Monroe) wore clothes so beautifully and had such a beautiful style. It was simple but sexy but not overly provocative, Cannon said. Cannon maintains a belief that there is still a place for vintage clothing in todays fashion. She is most excited by the blast from the past that is the highwaisted trend, as well as the classic little black dress, pant suits and rompers. I also love the high-waisted cigarette pants. high-waisted skinny jean, only less skinny at the ankle. I love a good pencil skirt always a classic! Essentially, she believes that there is a less-is-more quality of style making a comeback into fashion with classics such as the one-piece. Looks that leave a little more to the imagination are a returning trend. Its less about what you wear and actually about how you wear the clothes that makes your style stand out, said Cannon. She incorporates her vintage inspiration into her everyday style by working parts and pieces, like vintage accessories cessories may include a vintage scarf, purse or pair of shoes. Cannon will peruse stores like Target and Old Navy for items with a vintage-styled silhouette or pattern, and go from there with her more special pieces. Ill use that as a base for the tage accessories on top of it to give it a much more understated, casual, but still vintage look to it, said Cannon.By Tranelle ManerAvenue WriterKerry Washingtons run on TV may have ended with hit show Scandal, but that doesnt mean shes taking a break from television altogether. On June 4, Facebook premiered Five Points on their Facebook Watch platform, a series that Washington produces. The series tagline during all promotion has (Madison Pettis), Lexi (Hayley Kiyoko), CJ (Raymond Cham Jr.), Eric (Spence Moore II) and Wallace (Nathaniel Potvin). Though it took a while to build up, this series provided a decent amount of storytelling for such a short series. The 10 episode season only adds up to about an hour of content, leaving little room for extraneous scenes or details. released online June 4. Based on those initial episodes, it seems like the show will have one day that is focused on for the week of release. However, the events of that day will be told from the perspective of each main character. Interestingly, the series information and promotional snippets say the teens are going to be talking about a day that drastically changed their lives; yet, the audience has no idea what that event is or when it will occur. The mystery of what this grand event is should entice viewers to keep watching. Besides the often alluded to life-changing event, huge things have already happened to the plot development for the individuals even more intriguing. dramatic build-up, without giving away spoilers, the episodes following do provide much drama or answers to the basis of the series. added to the story to uncover the truth behind all of the events that have occurred and disrupted the lives of these high school students. Press for the Adam Giaudrone-directed show began in late 2017 and piqued the interests of many TV enthusiasts due to this unique platform of Facebook Watch. Watch is the social networks attempt to get into the video streaming and on-demand service industry. The service premiered in August 2017. The programming plan includes drawing from Facebooks byproducts like Instagram. It will also include elements from YouTube, Twitter and live traditional television. Right now, Facebook is only allowing certain people to make shows through the service by way of application process, but after some time they will eventually let anyone create their own content. While there is no word on a second season, many fans are hoping that there is more story to tell as the show continues. There is so much room to further develop. I would recommend the show in order for people to experience the new Facebook Watch, which is executed very well, but I dont think the storyline is anything to run to your friends about.UF graduate rocks vintage style all day, every day Series review of the week: Facebook Watchs Five Points STYLE/FASHION TELEVISION Facebook WatchFive Points is Facebook Watchs newest series, helping to launch the platform into the spotlight.

Jennifer Rocha is leaving her associate head coach job with UF softball for the same position at Oklahoma. She spent the last 13 seasons at Florida. MACHADO IS A DODGERThe Baltimore Orioles traded All-Star shortstop Manny Machado to the Los Follow us for updatesFor updates on UF athletics, follow us on Twitter at @alligatorSports or online at, JULY 19, 2018 Staff ReportIn the 2017-2018 season, UF had several athletes who shined seemingly out of nowhere. We, at letes for Most Improved Player of the Year: Volleyball outside hitter Shainah Joseph, football defensive lineman Taven Bryan, baseball third baseman Jonathan India, golfer Andy Zhang and soccer doesnt appear to be in agreement, as you can see here: Andrew: I was a beat writer for the 2017 volleyball team and saw the standard of excellence that Mary Wises team adhered to, day in and day out. Shainah Joseph So allow me to shine a light (or should I say, Shainah light) on a name many outside of the UF volleyball following may be unfamiliar with. Shes a Canadian-born, 6-foot-1 outside hitter with a 40.5-inch vertical jump, who developed into a formidable offensive threat, as well as the teams emotional leader. Josephs talent, grit and athletic ability crescendoed into a memorable end to her Gators career. Unlike other stars on that team, like teammates Carli Snyder and Rhamat Alhassan, Joseph waited patiently for the spotlight and did not disappoint once she found it. She set career-highs in virtually every statistical category last year: offense, defense, you name it. But her improvements werent just from 2016 to 2017. Joseph turned it up to another level midway through last season. Her scoralmost doubled during the last 16. She was another legitimate threat to score on a team that already most around. She became someone irreplaceable, largely responsible for the teams best season in a while: a 30-2 record, SEC title and a national championship appearance. @AndrewJHuang Brendan: Im going to have to go with Taven Bryan here for a couple reasons. First, he went from round pick in the NFL seemingly overnight. Secondly, his path just to make it this far is truly remarkable. After being buried on the depth chart behind the likes of Caleb Brantley, Joey Ivie and Jon Bullard nally became a starter last season. In 10 games, he more than doubled his tackles total from 16 to 37, doubled his tackles for loss (3.0 to 6.0) and his four sacks, up one from the year before, were second on the team. In one season, Bryan went from pick in the 2018 NFL Draft. If thats dont know what is. Since 1921, only 38 players from Wyoming have ever made it 2001 (Adam Archuleta). Not to mention, Bryan was only a threestar prospect coming out of high school and was originally recruited to be an offensive tackle before being moved to defense. Simply put, people from Bryans background dont become bluechip prospects and NFL starters. If there was a bright spot on the football team last season, it certainly has to be the emergence of Taven Bryan. @Bfarrell727 Chris: Jonathan India, not a doubt in my mind. From a relatively obscure prospect to the No. 5 pick in this years MLB Draft, India dominated this season. The third baseman touted a .350 batting average, a .497 on1.214. Those are three RIDICUally stop there. He went on a 24-game hit streak and mashed 21 home runs and 52 RBIs as well. But why were his numbers such a surprise? Lets rewind to the 2017 season. year, his batting average was almost the same as his on-base perwent up over 140 points and his most 450 points. India helped carry Florida through the Gainesville Super Regional and into the College World Series. His 2018 accolades speak for themselves. He was a First-Team All-American, First-Team All-SEC, and made the SEC All-Defensive Team. India also won the SEC Player of the Year award and was Award, which honors the top player in college baseball. The now-Cincinnati Red also smoked some home runs that had during the Gainesville Regional and Super Regional where he run, I wondered if it was the farthest hit ball Id ever seen at McKethan Stadium. This kid raked, and hell continue to do so in the pros.

Boy, I was a control freak, he said. I was paranoid. I had to do everything myself.

THURSDAY, JULY 19, 2018 ALLIGATOR 15 GOLFThe Associated PressCARNOUSTIE, Scotland (AP) The eve of exam, a multiple choice one with no obvious answers. The wind that blows off the North Sea across the exposed links of Carnoustie has not been the primary concern during practice rounds. Players have a reasonable idea how far the ball travels in the air. They just dont know how far it goes on the ground. If you get it downwind and you hit that pretty much until it runs into something, Justin Thomas said. Thats not entirely true. Thomas hit a tee shot on the third hole Wednesday afternoon that rolled across the humps in the fairway and kept right on rolling. It looked as though it would run into a bunker, or maybe even the handle of a rake leaning on the left edge of the bunker. It missed both and eventually came to a stop 232 yards away. His club off the tee was an 8-iron. Tiger Woods doesnt see many occasions to hit driver because of how far the ball is rolling across tight links grass that looks dead. It hasnt been this dry since Hoylake in 2006, when Woods hit only one driver all week and captured the Open for the third time. This might not be much different. Its just hard to keep the ball in play, he said. Its going to be an interesting test to see which clubs were going to be using off the tees, and a lot of it is dependent on which way the wind blows. So the whole idea of these practice rounds is just to get a good feel for what Im going to do, and then adjust accordingly. Others are coming to a different conclusion. Because while the links are as fast as ever, the rough is too thin, too wispy to wreak havoc. Dustin Johnson, the No. 1 player in the world, the 15 holes that are not par 3s. Two-time U.S. Open champion Brooks Koepka also is bullish on the big stick, saying the driver will come out on about eight or nine holes. Defending champion Jordan Spieth was practice. On the 415-yard fourth hole, with a bunker on the right side of a dogleg left and another bunker farther out on the left side, he hit a fade over the right bunker. The other option is a long iron that splits the bunker. And then Spieth had another idea. Aim for the 4? he asked his caddie, Michael Greller. He then motioned to the gallery about 60 yards off the tee to scoot back a bit, and Spieth blasted a shot over their heads toward a yellow patch of rough that separates the right side of the fourth green from the 15th tee. Theres not enough deep grass to get into trouble. The answers will start arriving on Thursday when the 147th edition of the British Open and the eighth edition at Carnoustie gets started. I think theres not going to be one player in night and is going to stick to that game plan the whole way around for 72 holes, Rory McIlroy said. Its just not going to happen with wind conditions, with pins. You start to feel a little bit more comfortable with a few shots, and you might start to take some on. and fast ... theres some guys that will see it completely different than the way I see it, and vice versa, he said. Its going to be really interesting to see how it all plays out. Sandy Lyle of Scotland, who won the Open in 1985, gets it start with the opening tee shot Thursday morning. Spieth, who will try to beback-to-back in the British Open, plays in the morning side of the draw. Among those playing in the afternoon are since 2015, and Koepka, who will try to bementous summer of 2000 to win golfs two oldest championships. Carnoustie is regarded as the toughest of the links in any conditions, though it rarely sees this kind of yellow-and-brown conditions. The ball still rolls on brittle ground into the wind. Put the breeze at their backs, and some holes will have no more than a wedge into the greens. Johnson hit a 3-iron and a wedge into the par-5 14th hole, which measures 513 yards, during one practice round. He hit driver into the burn the one by the green on the 499yard closing hole when he arrived Saturday. The next day, he scaled back and hit 3-wood and sand wedge. Even so, there is respect for these links. If it blows, its going to be tough, Johnson said. And with the ball running, it runs right into the bunkers. So youre still going to have to hit good shots, and youre still going to have to play well. The golf course is tough. The par 3s are tough. Even with the ball running so far, the golf course is not playing easy.British Open presents tough test with no clear answers Many scientists say that dinosaurs were wiped from the face of the Earth by an asteroid. The Toronto Raptors are about to meet their asteroid. Im referring to the Raptors newly acquired All-NBA forward, former Spur Kawhi Leonard. I supCasey, Torontos coach of seven years fresh off of leading the team to a franchise-record 59 wins and the top seed in the Eastern Conference also counts. Raptors star DeMar DeRozan, along with rotation player Jakob Poeltl and a protected 2019 San Antonio while Leonard and shooting guard Danny Green have been shipped to Toronto. Neither Leonard or DeRozan, by far the best players in the deal, seem very happy about it. DeRozan took to Instagram to express his frustration with how Toronto handled the situation and I dont blame him. Then theres Leonard, who apparently isnt thrilled about playing in Toronto. Leonards contract expires in a year and he has made it clear that the Lakers are his preferred destination via trade or as a free agent. I highly doubt that he stays with the Raptors past the 2018-19 season, but theres also no guarantee that Leonard ends up in Los Angeles. Theres buzz about the Lakers picking up All-NBA guard Damian Lillard to pair with LeBron James, and we have no idea if another Alister will join James in L.A. before Leonard hits the market next summer. But this got me thinking: If Kawhi didnt go to Los Angeles, where could he end up? He could stay in the weaker Eastern Conference, where less competition stands in the way of a Finals run. Boston has the assets to make it happen, but how much would making room for Kawhi gut the Celtics depth? Id imagine Gordon Hayward would be out. He plays the same position free agent a year ago before signing with Boston. Both Hayward and Leonard are Kawhi with his quadricep, which limited him to nine games last season, and Hayward, who suffered a gruesome leg injury in Bostons season opener against Cleveland the postseason. And what about Kyrie Irving, who left Cleveland to escape the shadow of LeBron James? Irving might not appreciate adding another player of similar caliber to the team. He would no longer be the best player on the team, and it would only fuel speculations that he already wants out of Boston. I wouldnt be surprised if Kawhis arrival signals Irvings departure. The Celtics would still be the best team in the East, but is adding Leonard a necessary step in their progression toward an NBA title? I could also see him joining Philadelphia. Whether or not the Sixers were actually close to signing LeBron before he chose the Lakers, nabbing Leonard would be the next best thing. They both play the same position and while the 33-year-old James is the superior player today, he will eventually age out of his prime. Leonard, on the other hand, is just 27 and before last years turbulent season appeared to be entering his prime. Also, hes less ball-dominant than LeBron, chemistry with Philadelphias star point guard Ben Simmons. On top of that, Leonard brings a championship pedigree to a team sorely lacking playoff experience. Leonard, Simmons and Joel Embiid would run the East and in short time contend for an NBA title. Another team in the East to keep an eye on is Indiana. The Pacers already have a young star who can double as a lockdown defender in Victor Oladipo. Adding Leonard to that squad would help provide leadership and stability to the post-Paul George Indiana. Of course, theres a chance he ends up back in the Western Conference. Dont count out the Spurs. I know that sounds ridiculous trying to lead an underachieving, rebuilding Toronto team through the East. He realizes how good he had it in San Antonio, how stable things were within the Spurs organization and how lucky he was to have a legendary coach in Gregg Popovich. Hell have time to gain the necessary perspective in order to clear the air with his former team. And then the jokes really on Toronto, because hed go back and line up alongside DeRozan, a scary-good dynamic duo. I also like New Orleans. A team led by Kawhi and Anthony Davis would sport one of the NBAs best defenses and would ooze star power each time the two shared the court together. With DeMarcus Cousins gone, theres another spot for a star in the Big Easy and Leonard could be that guy. Finally, dont count out Utah. Leonards desire to play in Los Angeles suggests his preference of being out of the spotlight may be overblown, but I dont think that means he doesnt enjoy it. The Jazz offer another chance to lay low and just play ball, as well as a budding star in Donovan Mitchell and the reigning Defensive Player of the Year in Rudy Gobert. @AndrewJHuang ahuang@alligator.orgLooking into the NBA crystal ball: Kawhi and the Toronto RaptorsHuang Story Short / OpinionThe Associated PressDespite his prefernce of going to Los Angeles, the San Antonio Spurs traded Kawhi Leonard (left) to Toronto Wednesday.
