On what is called “moving day” in golf, Tiger Woods moved the wrong way at the British Open. After posting 67 in consecutive rounds, Woods got off to a slow start and shot an even par 70, which left him five shots off the lead going into Sunday’s final round.Adam Scott, after a 68, is 11-under for the championship and leads Graeme McDowell and Brandt Snedeker by four shots, Woods by five and Ernie Els and Zach Johnson by six.The weather at Royal St. Lytham for the third straight day was benign, leaving plenty of scoring opportunities. Tiger Woods, however, did not take advantage of the lack of wind and rain. He missed two putts the he rued and generally was unable to gain any kind of momentum.“I just didn’t make anything,” Woods said simply.Did not win any of his 14 majors while trailing in the final round. He also held the lead or shared it with someone else.Having to play from behind Sunday, Woods said he has “to make birdies” to apply pressure on Scott, who has been virtually flawless. On his bag is Steve Williams, the caddie Woods fired. Woods will be playing in the group behind Tiger Woods.Weather also could be a factor. If the forecast of wind and rain happens, it could help bring Scott back to the pack. Even still, Woos has to hold his round together, unlike Saturday.Woods got off to a sluggish start with a couple of bogeys, but he made the turn at 1-under 33 after closing the front side with three birdies in four holes. He hasn’t won a major title in more than four years, the last of his 14 championships coming at the 2008 U.S. Open, before his personal life imploded and his body was wracked by injuries.Tiger Woods couldn’t keep it going on the back side, a couple of misread putts costing him two crucial strokes.

As much as I respect the original intent of the holiday (which became official back in 1894), to most of us, it’s just a bonus day off — one that’s blissfully tacked onto a weekend. So, yeah, stores; go ahead, run your sales. I’m listening. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Labor Day doesn’t bring out bargains to compete with the likes of Black Friday (which will be here before you know it), but there are definitely some sales worth your time.For example:We’ve rounded up the best Labor Day mattress deals.We’ve also gathered the best Labor Day laptop deals at Best Buy.The 2019 Vizio P Series Quantum is back under $999.Be sure to check out Amazon’s roughly three dozen Labor Day deals on TVs and audio.

New Galaxy owners could also get six months of free Spotify Premium. Spotify noted that you’re ineligible if you’ve already used Spotify Premium or its Unlimited service or previously had a free trial. The offer is another piece of Spotify’s partnership with Samsung. The two companies started working together in August, and Spotify was deemed Samsung’s go-to music provider. The Spotify app will also come preinstalled on the Galaxy Fold, set to debut April 26, and the Galaxy S10 5G, set for release in the summer. See It CNET may get a commission from retail offers.

That makes for a mighty slow Windows experience. This Lenovo model features a 128GB solid-state drive, so it should be pretty quick to boot and load software, even with its basic processor. Plus, it has a DVD-burner! That’s not something you see in many modern laptops, especially at this price.

Just add any Fire TV Edition to your cart, then add a third-gen Echo Dot, and presto: The latter is free. $59 at eBay Turo is kind of like Uber meets Airbnb: You borrow someone’s car, but you do all the driving. I’ve used it many times and found it a great alternative to traditional car-rental services — in part because you get to choose exactly the vehicle you want (not just, say, “midsize”) and in part because you can often do pickup and dropoff right outside baggage claim.Between now and Sept. 1, the first 300 people to check out can get $30 off any Turo rental with promo code LDW30. I thought this might be a mistake, but, no, the weirdly named HP Laptop 15t Value is indeed quite the value at this price. Specs include an Intel Core i7 processor, 12GB of RAM, a 256GB solid-state drive and a 15.6-inch display. However, I strongly recommend paying an extra $50 to upgrade that display to FHD (1,920×1,080), because you’re not likely to be happy with the native 1,366×768 resolution.

Also, BTI Consultants has been approached by some few Flipkart executives whose salaries are over Rs 1 crore per annum, the daily said.More churn in the industry, as well as in the job market, is expected as Walmart is going ahead with key acts of restructuring at the company. The US headquarters has already said Flipkart group companies Myntra and Jabong will be rolled into one, a move that will lead to the layoff more than 200 people at Jabong. Chief Operating Officer and Co-Founder of Flipkart, Binny Bansal speaks during the launch of Flipkart’s Largest Fulfillment Centre on the outskirts of Hyderabad on October 30, 2015.NOAH SEELAM/AFP/Getty ImagesIBTimes UKSeveral senior executives at Flipkart have stated looking for jobs outside following the abrupt exit of co-founder Binny Bansal from the Indian e-commerce giant that was acquired by Walmart earlier this year.Bansal, the group Chief Executive Officer at Flipkart, resigned after the Walmart management concluded that there was “a lack of transparency, related to how Binny responded to a charge of “personal misconduct”.Sachin Bansal, the other co-founder, had exited the company earlier this year after the US retail behemoth took a 77 percent stake in the Indian company for $16 billion. With both founders out, Flipkart CEO Kalyan Krishnamurthy became the highest ranking executive at the conglomerate overnight.The rapid ascend of Krishnamurthy in Flipkart had set alarm bells ringing among the senior professionals at the company. The comeback of the former Tiger Global executive to Flipkart in 2016 had caused the exit of more than a dozen senior C-level executives from Flipkart.Krishnamurthy ad joined Flipkart the first time in 2013 as interim sales chief and finance head. According to reports he had fallen out with the then CEO Sachin Bansal and left the following year. [Left to right: Kalyan Krishnamurthy, CEO, Flipkart, Jerry Shen, CEO, ASUS TEK Computer Inc.] Asus Zenfone series phones will be available exclusively on Flipkart in IndiaAsus Press KitIncidentally, it was Krishnamurthy who spearheaded the move to tie Flipkart in the stable of Walmart. Sachin Bansal had reportedly wanted a deal with Amazon, not Walmart.When Flipkart was bought over by Walmart eventually, Sachin quit the company he founded along with Binny more than ten years ago in a Bangalore apartment.As the news of Binny’s resignation spread, there were speculations that Krishnamurthy would be the next in line to become the group CEO. The Walmart management also announced that the CEOs of group companies Myntra and Jabong would report into Krishnamurthy.Soon it was clear that Myntra CEO Ananth Narayanan was on his way out as his equations with Krishnamurthy weren’t great either. Even as reports about his resignation spread, Narayanan clarified on Friday that he hasn’t put in papers. Rush to exit According to a report by the Economic Times, more than ten senior Flipkart executives have refreshed their CVs and started discussions with executive placement agencies.While Delhi-based placement firm GlobalHunt got 10 resumes from Flipkart executives, Bengaluru-based Head Hunters has also intimated discussions with a handful of executive, ET reported.Separately, Mumbai-based executive search firm Hunt Partners has also got feelers from high-ranking Flipkart executives.
