Bellerive’s history will be linked forever to 9/11, even with a new generation of players ushering in

Bellerive Country Club in St. Louis was hosting the WGC-American Express Championship on September 11, 2001. This week, as it hosts the  PGA Championship, many professional golfers shared their memories of the day with Tod Leonard of the Los Angeles Times. This is the first time since the 2008 BMW Championship that many of them have played the course.

On 9/11, play halted when news of the terrorist attacks came through and players watched in the locker rooms. The tournament was then cancelled.

Padraig Harrington told the press, “A journalist asked me a few weeks ago to talk about the golf course. Even what little I remember, I can’t even talk about that, because it all relates to September 11. How can I talk about the golf course when it’s all so insignificant?”

Drone attacks are essentially terrorism by joystick

Terrorism by drone is a new threat, illustrated recently by the assassination attempt against President Maduro of Venezuela and the terrorist claim that they sent armed drones to attack Abu Dhabi’s airport.

Drones, also known as unmanned aerial vehicles are easy to obtain and use, and are largely unregulated. They pose a serious risk to the traveling public, as most can fly lower than can be easily detected. New detection methods are a very high priority, reports Bernard Hudson of the Washington Post.
