The Masters 2021: third round – live!
Hole-by-hole coverage of the action at Augusta NationalOfficial Masters leaderboardRose holds on to Masters lead but has Spieth in rearview mirrorAny comments? Email Scott your thoughts 3.10pm BST Good morning, patrons. There’s only one way to ease ourselves into the third round. Crank it up! 1.39pm BST It’s Moving Day at the 2021 Masters. The leader Justin Rose, who suffered yesterday before salvaging a level-par 72, will be hoping to channel his Thursday self, when he shot a marvellous 65. Pretty much everyone else in the chasing pack, with the possible exceptions of Tyrrell Hatton and Patrick Reed, will be hoping to repeat yesterday’s performances.The early starters could have an advantage, with winds set to pick up later in the day. There’s also the threat of rain, which would at least soften the course, and thunder, which would take everyone off it. But the forecasts haven’t been totally accurate so far this week – predicted rain didn’t materialise yesterday, for example – so fingers crossed. Continue reading...

Kintsugi helped me to understand my brother's death
The Japanese artform, based on a belief that a repaired pot can be stronger, taught me about tragedy and the ability to overcome itMy brother died at the age of 10, when I was eight. When I was nine, I shushed my best friend for mentioning him. At 11, I forced myself to stop turning my head away when we drove past a cemetery. And at 16 I spoke his name aloud for the first time, although it was many more years before I could actually talk about him.“The world breaks everyone and afterward many are strong at the broken places,” wrote Ernest Hemingway. Decades after my brother died I found a way to understand this, and that way was through the metaphor of kintsugi (kin=gold + tsugi=joining), the Japanese repair technique that puts a broken pot back together but reveals the breaks and scars by highlighting the seams with pure gold. A shattered pot becomes a new entity, one that says out loud: I was broken, but now, even though I am not perfect, I am more beautiful and stronger than ever. Continue reading...

Palm Springs review – Groundhog Day with wedding bells on
This sharp time-loop romcom juggles fun and fatalism and resonates powerfully in the age of lockdownIt’s an unexceptional wedding. Perhaps the cocktail bar aesthetic is a touch on the cheesy side. Perhaps there are a few sexual misadventures. Certainly a lot of beer is consumed, most of it by Nyles (Andy Samberg, excellent in a role that harnesses his comic talent but hones it into a performance of unexpected depth). But what is unusual is the location, next to a portal that leads to what Nyles nonchalantly describes as “one of those infinite time loops you might have heard of”. It’s a sly nod to the fact that cinema has been caught in this particular high concept before. But surface similarities to Groundhog Day are relegated to background noise, thanks to the crisp writing and the nihilistic bite of the humour.When we join the wedding, Nyles has already been caught in the loop for long enough to have relinquished hope and any pretence of giving a damn. But the endless inevitability is disrupted when Sarah (Cristin Milioti), sister of the bride and a velvet-eyed car crash of a woman, is sucked into the same repeated day. And the infinite grind of repetition suddenly takes on an element of fun. Continue reading...

A YouTuber goes wild fishing and camping in the Cascade mountains washington state
A lone fisherman goes into the wilds of Washington state in search of giant alpine trout in pristine turquoise lakes. The results are spectacularThere it was again – an all-too-familiar splash in the shallow, rocky portion of the lake, maybe 200 feet along the shore from where I was standing. I had heard it twice already, and seen nothing but circular ripples on the glasslike surface of the water. But this time, I was watching. Just as I’d identified the torpedo-shaped, thrashing object launching from the surface of the water as a massive trout, a second one leapt into the air and snatched at an unfortunate insect.I was backpacking and fishing deep in the Cascade mountains of Washington state, in search of alpine trout to catch and eat, and to film another adventure for my YouTube channel, NW Fishing Secrets. I’d started my fishing show as a hobby in April 2019, filming instructional videos on how to catch local fish, but as the audience grew rapidly, I realised viewers wanted more than that.
