Pettersen apologizes for actions

Europe's Suzann Pettersen has apologised for her controversial behaviour at the Solheim Cup on Sunday.
 
Pettersen said that a putt on the 17th green had not been conceded when the USA's Alison Lee picked up her ball, meaning the Americans lost the hole.
 
She was widely criticised and has now posted on social media  to say "sorry for not thinking about the bigger picture in the heat of the battle".

National junior golfer Sabrina Mitchell defied the elements to win the 2015 Agostini Insurance Brokers Ltd Ladies Open Championships on Sunday at St Andrew’s Golf Course, Moka.
 
Torrential downpours on Saturday and Sunday produced two-hour mid-round breaks and testing conditions for the golfers, but 16-year-old Mitchell held her nerve to produce rounds of 80 and 78 to win the title.
 
Mitchell was one of three teenagers who claimed the top prizes in the event. 
 
Sarah Ramphal, 14, won the B Flight by six shots and South Korean teenager Ye Ji Lee, 13, dominated the C Flight on both days to comfortably take her first title.
 
In a wide-open A Flight, Mitchell trailed Pauline Figuera-Raynor (78) by two shots after the opening day with Karina Matabadal (81) a further shot behind. 
 
The trio was trapped on the back nine for two hours at Moka after heavy showers drenched the St Andrew’s Golf Course.
 
On the second day, Mitchell outscored her rivals on the front nine in the midst of another lengthy thundershower to forge a two-shot win.
 
Mitchell’s 76 on the second day, was not matched by Figuera-Raynor’s 80 and Matabadal’s 81.
 
In the B Flight, Ramphal trailed Jennifer Granger after the opening day by a shot but took a slim one-shot lead coming into the final hole.  
 
Granger’s drive on the 18th hit a tree and her challenge ended when she was hit with a two-shot penalty after playing the wrong ball during her approach.
 
Ramphal birdied the hole to claim a six-shot win.
 
Zoe Correia, who celebrated her 14th birthday on Friday, finished third, just a shot behind Granger.
 
Ye Ji Lee was absolutely dominant over the two days in the C Flight. 
 
The South Korean, 13, produced 28 points on the opening day in the Stableford-scored competition for the high-handicappers.
 
On the second day, Lee amassed 44 points to finish with 72 points over the two days.
 
Lisa Schultz was a distant second with 57 points with Gillian Quesnel third with 50 points.
 
Lee is the sister of Trinidad and Tobago national senior golfer Wan Ju Lee.

Sir Viv supports Holder

Sir Viv Richards has supported Jason Holder's promotion to the West Indies Test captaincy, saying the allrounder had the ability and was not too young for the job. 
 
Richards' endorsement came days after Brian Lara also approved of the new West Indies captain, who replaced Denesh Ramdin in the job.
 
Holder, 23, is West Indies' second youngest Test captain, and has led the ODI side in 12 matches. 
Former West Indies captain Sir Richie Richardson will join the ICC's elite panel of match referees as a replacement for the retiring Roshan Mahanama.

Sammy captained West Indies in 30 of his 38 Tests before retiring from the longer version of the game last year.
