Whicker: Riviera’s ill winds blow the winner’s check out of Thomas’ hands

PACIFIC PALISADES — A golf ball weighs 1.62 ounces. It can still buckle a golfer’s knees. They were writing Justin Thomas’ name on the big check Sunday morning at the Genesis Open. He was at 18-under-par and leading by five shots. Riviera’s soggy grounds and the endless days and the bone-piercing chill of the evening had not touched him all week. Then Thomas watched a birdie putt on 17 give a head-fake toward the cup at Riviera and then turn away. Thomas pointed agonizingly to his right, and the...

J.B. Holmes has strong final round to win Genesis Open

PACIFIC PALISADES — J.B Holmes is one of the longest drivers on the PGA Tour, but it was two long par putts that helped him hold off 54-hole leader Justin Thomas by one shot to win the 2019 Genesis Open title. Holmes was a shot behind Thomas when he holed a 12-foot par putt on the par-4 13th hole, bringing a fist pump from Holmes in the process. Holmes then watched Thomas four-putt from 57 feet, turning his one-shot deficit into a one-shot lead. Three holes later, Holmes managed to build his lea...

How much prize money each golfer earned at the 2019 Genesis Open

J.B. Holmes carrying off the trophy, his first PGA Tour title since 2015—which was hardly a foregone conclusion given the weather players faced this week in not-so sunny Southern California. Mind you, the last nine holes were hardly golf at its finest. Four long days at Riviera Country Club took a toll on the field coming down the stretch at Riviera Country Club, with several struggling to try to capture the title.

‘The Devil In the White City’ Movie is Now a Hulu Series From Leonardo DiCaprio and Martin Scorsese

Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio were hoping to one day adapt Erik Larson’s fantastic book The Devil in the White City into a feature film, with Scorsese directing, and DiCaprio starring as the notorious H.H. Holmes, thought to be America’s first serial killer. But now, things have changed. Instead of a movie, we’re getting a Devil in the White City Hulu show, and while Scorsese and DiCaprio will still be producing, it’s doubtful their involvement will go much further than that. And that’s...

‘Crashing’ Creator and Star Pete Holmes Discusses Last Night’s Timely Episode, “MC, Middle, and Headliner” [Interview]

Pete Holmes is more successful in season 3 of Crashing, but not much happier. The generally happy-go-lucky comedian is playing for churches and getting laughs, but he’s not performing like himself, worsening his struggle to find his voice or sense of self in the comedy world. Holmes – the character – hits some professional and personal lows this season. While the Judd Apatow-produced series often shows the joy and camaraderie in Holmes’ standup career, it’s usually about failure and not always ...

More than half of today's unicorn health startups haven't published any influential research — and some experts say that raises the risk of another Theranos

A new study suggests that many of the highest-valued healthcare startups — from buzzy health insurance companies like Oscar to biotechs with record-breaking IPOs like Moderna — are failing to publish quality scientific research. That could put us on the brink of the next Theranos, say the authors of the study, who hail from Stanford and New York University. While it isn't perfect, peer-reviewed research is a critical source of vetting for any startup whose product could put people's lives at r...

'Pioneers: First Women Filmmakers' Brings Forth a Time When, Unlike Today, Women Made Lots of Movies

A new box set is devoted to demonstrating this and attempting to explain why that gravy train ground to a halt as America's commercial industry consolidated in Hollywood. Among the many silent film packages issued in 2018, the crowning glory is Kino Lorber's magnificently curat...
