Max Lesoine ascends a boulder at the recently opened Moab Boulder Park, located within Lions Park at the corner of U.S. 191 and state Route 128. Now open for use, representatives say the boulder park provides a “safe, free, and bike-accessible opportunity” for the Moab community to practice rock climbing. Moab resident Christina Sloan spearheaded the effort to raise funds to create the boulder park. Approximately 80 percent of the more than $300,000 raised for the project came from contributions by local businesses and individuals. The Grand County Recreation Special Service District and the Governor’s Office for Outdoor Recreation contributed the remaining 20 percent of the funding. The community is invited to attend a grand opening ceremony and ribbon cutting on Friday, May 13 at 2 p.m. Photo by Molly Marcello

    BMW PGA ChampionshipBy Tony Jimenez VIRGINIA WATER, England (Reuters) - Scott Hend came close to punching two drunk fans who heckled him as the Australian was plotting his way to the top of the BMW PGA Championship leaderboard, he said on Saturday. Hend featured in the last two-ball of the third round at Wentworth with home favorite, U.S. Masters winner Danny Willett of England. "Danny was getting all the crowd support and I had no problem with that but there were a couple of guys out there who were really over the top and it wasn't very nice what they were saying," the 43-year-old told reporters.

    Australia's Scott Hend plays a tee shot on the 16th hole during the third day of the PGA Championship at Wentworth, on May 28, 2016Australia's Scott Hend had the backing of Masters champion Danny Willett in confronting a drunken spectator on route to eagling the last for a second day running to take a one shot lead into the final round of the EPGA Championship at Wentworth. Hend, 43, had just a virtual tap-in eagle 'three' in a round of 73 for a nine under par tally as he seeks to end a 26-year Australia winless drought at the European Tour's flagship event. Willett, who shared the lead with Hend heading into day three of the 4-million euros ($4.4 million) event, went ahead with a birdie at the fifth but stumbled with five bogeys over his remaining 10 holes in an eventual 76 for a five-way share of fifth place at six under par.
