Typically only insomniacs turn on the television to watch golf at 4 a.m. in a desperate effort to go back to sleep.
On Thursday, golf junkies were actually waking up intentionally to do just that.
The start of ESPN’s live 11-hour coverage of the first round of the British Open at Royal Liverpool just happened to coincide with the major championship return of Tiger Woods. And the man who moves golf’s needle the way The Beatles once did rewarded the diehards with an encouraging performance.
Two men told police they were robbed at gunpoint after stopping with a flat tire early Wednesday.
Rooney Dupuy, 27, of Texas, and Antwaun Fambro, 28, of Arkansas told police they were driving on Morgan Road around 1:30 a.m. to get to Gate 1 of Fort Gordon on Gordon Highway when they had a flat tire. The men had previously attempted to enter the base’s Tobacco Road entrance after returning from downtown but found it closed.
