Tiger Woods has little to offer on past accident or future in golf

NASSAU, Bahamas — Tiger Woods had nothing to say about the February car crash that shattered his right leg and even less of an idea what his future in golf holds for him except that he’s a long way from deciding whether he can compete against the best.

“I can show up here and I can host an event, I can play a par-3 course, I can hit a few shots, I can chip and putt,” he said Tuesday. “But we’re talking about going out there and playing against the world’s best on the most difficult golf courses under the most difficult conditions.

“I’m so far from that.”

Woods addressed the media for the first time since his Feb. 23 crash on a winding road in the Los Angeles coastal suburbs. Police said he was driving at least 84 mph when he crossed a median and his SUV tumbled down a hill.

Asked his recollection of the accident, Woods said curtly, “All those answers have been answered in the investigation, so you can read about all that there in the police report.” When asked if he had any flashbacks to the trauma, he replied: “I don’t, no. Very lucky in that way.”

He also felt lucky to be alive and to still have his right leg, and to be able to walk into the press center at Albany Golf Club without a noticeable limp.

Experience the best Colorado offers at the Timbers at the Pinery

Experience the best Colorado offers at the Timbers at the

Homebuyers can find the “quintessential Colorado experience” at the Timbers at the Pinery near Parker.

“People land at DIA and think they’re in Kansas,” says Trent Getsch at Timbers at The Pinery. “But then they see a place like the Timbers and say, ‘This is what we were hoping for.’”

Timbers at the Pinery offers luxurious custom homes nestled in a forest of ponderosa pine trees on large-acre lots that provide spectacular mountain views, plus plenty of open space and extensive trails for walking and biking.

With a shortage of available homes in the Denver area, the development is working to provide inventory, Getsch says. But the Timbers’ ranch homes typically sell before they’re listed.

Right now, four homes are under construction, and five custom lots are available for immediate sale. It’s not too late to select some of the finishing touches for the homes under construction, or buyers can start from the beginning and choose one of the Timbers’ 13 builders to develop their home.

If you still want to move into a new home in 2022, Getsch has a few options for you to consider.

Available homes

For example, the 4,740-foot Sterling Home walkout ranch is available now for $2,075,000. The four-bedroom, five-bath house features a main floor master suite with adjoining laundry, a chef’s kitchen, a secondary/prep kitchen, a great room, an informal dining room, and a covered deck. The lower level includes a large family room, three bedrooms, three baths, and a covered patio.

Another option for buyers to consider is a 5200-square-foot walkout ranch from Summerwood Homes for $2.4 million that will soon hit the market.

Or you could consider the 5,000-square-foot JW Luxury Homes walkout ranch on an acre and a quarter that will be ready for move-in this fall.

The Timbers’ ranch homes appeal to everyone from young families with kids to active empty nesters, Getsch says.

“One-level living is appealing and with a finished basement, you can have more bedrooms, more bathrooms, and a family room. They’re functional for entertaining and transcend any particular demographic,” he says.

The Timbers draws a mix of people relocating to Colorado and buyers who want to move away from the Denver metro’s congestion.

Appealing amenities

In addition to spectacular views and lots of open space, the Timbers is conveniently located 25 minutes from the Denver Tech Center and 40 minutes from Denver International Airport.

YouTube pulls Billy Long Senate campaign ad over election fraud claim

A week after Republican Missouri congressman Billy Long released a Senate campaign ad claiming the 2020 presidential election was rigged, YouTube has removed the ad for violating its guidelines.

Long responded late Thursday by accusing YouTube and other tech companies of censoring conservative candidates and public figures.

YouTube spokeswoman Ivy Choi says the website prohibits “content uploaded after official election results were certified advancing false claims that widespread fraud, errors, or glitches changed the outcome of the 2020 U.S. presidential election.”

Long is the latest Republican to do battle with YouTube.

Nuggets Journal: Nikola Jokic paused his game to learn of All-Star news

Nuggets Journal: Nikola Jokic paused his game to learn of All-Star news

NEW ORLEANS – The joysticks were calling, but so was his wife, Natalija.

That’s where Nikola Jokic found himself Thursday evening only moments before TNT was set to announce the All-Star starters. Like the dutiful husband that he is, Jokic caved to the marital pressure.

“I was playing the game, like, ughhh,” Jokic said at Friday’s shootaround prior to Denver’s game against the Pelicans. “I was kinda watching on the phone with Natalija, and I was playing the video game. And then after they select me, I was like, ‘Oh, bye, bye.’”

Pressed on which game could possibly take his attention away from his fourth consecutive All-Star appearance, Jokic declined to share.

“Waste of time,” he said.

But more important than the news itself?

“No, no, I mean, I was just real into the game,” Jokic said. “It was a funny moment yesterday. Today, Natalija still doesn’t talk to me.”

Jokic celebrated with an international dinner, as he called it, Thursday night in New Orleans. He was accompanied by teammate Facu Campazzo and the team’s Brazilian strength coaches, Felipe Eichenberger and Claus Souza. Jeff Green crashed the party.

The whole sequence was quintessential Jokic and yet another indication of how comfortable he is in his own skin, doing what he wants on his own time. Jokic is hardpressed to be impressed, especially by himself.

Don’t be fooled by his antics. Jokic cares a lot about the selection, even if it was a safe assumption weeks ago. It means he gets to represent the Nuggets, his family, his friends and his native country. The fan votes revealed Jokic finished fifth in the entire NBA behind LeBron James, Steph Curry, Kevin Durant and Giannis Antetokounmpo.

“Serbia loves me, seems like,” he said.

But perhaps more importantly, only three players – Durant, Antetokounmpo and James – garnered more respect from their peers in terms of the player vote. Jokic’s 167 votes barely trailed James’ 171.

Jokic was appreciative of that aspect.

Like Jokic, Nuggets coach Michael Malone wasn’t waiting with bated breath over the news. He was preparing for the Pelicans, not sitting on his phone or setting his clock to the TNT announcement.

“It’s almost getting to the point where that’s expected,” said Malone, who acknowledged it’s still something worth celebrating even if it’s become somewhat commonplace.

“It gives us a tremendous amount of pride,” he said.

Now if it would only yield a more favorable whistle, was the part he didn’t say but might’ve wanted to.

For Jokic, Thursday’s news means he gets to participate in the NBA’s banner weekend, alongside the best basketball players in the world. His goal?
