Senate Minority Leader Asks USDA to Extend Hemp Comments Period

The Senate Minority Leader, Chuck Schumer, has requested the USDA (United States Department of Agriculture) to prolong the public comment duration for the newly released draft hemp rules. He said the reason for his request is because he is concerned about some prohibitory rules included therein.

On Wednesday, Schumer visited a hemp farm in New York, Miller Organics; while there, he discussed the economic potential of industrial hemp and its derivatives. In the month of October, the USDA released draft rules for the crop and although some stakeholders believe they are headed on…

Close call in majors can lead to some major recovery time

Jul 2, 2020

KAPALUA, Hawaii — J.B. Holmes played only two rounds in four months leading into the new year. He expected some rust at Kapalua, and it showed when he managed only two birdies in his opening round of 78. He can recover from that, especially in a 34-man field with no cut in the Sentry Tournament of Champions. Far more difficult was getting over his shot to win a major. For two days at Royal Portrush, Holmes played some of his best golf and shared the 36-hole lead. Even after Shane Lowry began to pull away with a 63 in the...

Jul 2, 2020

GOLD COAST, Australia — Adam Scott birdied two of his final three holes to take a one-stroke lead after three rounds of the Australian PGA championship on Saturday. Scott had a 54-hole total of 10-under 206 after a 3-under 69 at Royal Pines. "I made a good move at it (on the 18th) and it all worked out — you'd hope for that tomorrow to happen but you just never know," Scott said. "This golf course can bite you so it's important you execute your shots well when you're down in the valleys of sin around these greens." Former U.S....

Jul 2, 2020

LAS VEGAS — Kevin Na matched his career-low Saturday with a 10-under 61 on a day of low scoring in Las Vegas to build a two-shot lead over Patrick Cantlay in the Shiners Hospitals for Children Open. Na was pumping his fist after every putt down the stretch at the TPC Summerlin, which yielded six scores of 63 or better. Na, who lives in Las Vegas, set the tournament's 54-hole record at 22-under 191. Cantlay was staying with him until he failed to get up-and-down on the reachable par-4 15th and made bogey from the bunker on the par-3 17th....
