‘Beware the sick golfer’ is the age-old golfing adage and it was never more appropriate when Jordan Smith won the Hampshire Hog, the biggest title of his young career, at North Hants. The England International shot rounds of 69, 67 for a four under par total of 136, finishing a shot clear of English champion Harry Ellis. A week ago, Smith pulled out of an England training get-together after going down with a virus. So his victory was something of a surprise to the Wiltshire 20 year old. “The virus laid me low last week so this win is a bit of a surprise,” he said. “I didn’t play that fantastic, just steady, but I holed a few birdies.” He also eagled the par five 17th in his opening 69, holing from 12 feet, and almost repeated it in the afternoon but his 20-footer for another three left him with a tap-in birdie, one of four ne accumulated before spending over a hour waiting to see if anyone would catch him. Ellis, bidding to become the first Hampshire player to win the title since Justin Rose in 1995, also opened with 69 and was on track until he double-bogeyed the par four 14th. He had the chance to repair the damage and catch Smith with an eagle at 17. But he had to settle for birdie and 68, which left him a shot short. Three players, England internationals Jack Hiluta, Callum Shinkwin and Josh White, all scheduled for this weekend’s match with Spain, and British Boys champion Matthew Fitzpatrick, shared third place on 138. So Smith adds his name to an illustrious honours board that includes former Open and Masters champion Sandy Lyle, Sir Michael Bonallack as well as Rose. “When you see the likes of Justin Rose and Sandy Lyle as previous winners, these players are legends and you aspire to what they have done. If you start by winning events they won you know you are heading in the right direction,” added Smith. Defending champion Callum Shinkwin once again showed his liking for North Hants with a course record 65 in the afternoon to win the Hampshire Salver, with an aggregate of 273 from the Hampshire Hog and the previous day’s Selborne Salver at Blackmoor.

Facebook35Tweet0Pin0Submitted by Thurston County Board of County CommissionersThe deadline for citizens to submit a project application requiring the on-site gopher review screening process is 4:00 p.m. next Friday, September 13. This date takes into consideration the review season ending on October 31 and the requirement of two site-visits, 30 days apart. County staff will schedule site reviews for new permit applicants until the schedule is filled. Applications submitted after the deadline are not guaranteed an on-site review in 2019.If applicants used a consultant for the review, they must submit an application and the consultant’s report by 4:00 p.m. on Friday, October 18. This allows staff time to review and field verify the report, if necessary, before the review window closes on October 31, 2019.The Board of County Commissioners has taken steps to address the Mazama pocket gopher review process, including submitting a draft of the Habitat Conservation Plan to U.S. Fish and Wildlife Services (USFWS). Each year, the Board has implemented key changes to the gopher review process resulting in a more streamlined and efficient reviews, including the option for applicants to hire their own qualified consultants to conduct reviews.The application deadline does not apply to all building permit applicants. Gopher reviews only apply to building permit applicants who plan to build on properties mapped with gopher soils and are within the county’s permit jurisdiction. In a typical year that’s about 10 percent of the county’s 4,000 total applications.Why the County conducts gopher reviewsThurston County is home to the threatened Mazama pocket gopher species. The federal Endangered Species Act protects these animals and their habitat. That means property owners who build on protected habitat may have federal requirements to address before they break ground. The county adopted a gopher review process to help permit applicants deal with the federal listing. Without the review process, every county permit applicant with a building project on a gopher soil would have to work directly with USFWS. This would increase the cost significantly and add an estimated 24 to 36 months to the process.To learn more about the County’s 2019 Gopher Review Process, visit www.ThurstonPermitting.org and select ‘Gopher Review Process’.
