Bud Cauley, Who Not Long Ago Wondered if He Was Done With Golf, Leads After 2 Rounds at PGA National

Bud Cauley, Who Not Long Ago Wondered if He Was Done With Golf, Leads After 2 Rounds at PGA National

[ad_1] PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. (AP) — Bud Cauley is leading on the PGA Tour. That might not have seemed likely a few years ago. Cauley — who was seriously injured in a 2018 car crash and is playing a tour event for only the third time in nearly 4 1/2 years — shot a 6-under 65 on Friday at PGA National to take a one-shot lead after 36 holes of the Cognizant Classic. Cauley has 11 birdies and no bogeys over his last 27 holes. He made a 12-footer for birdie at the par-5 18th on Friday as darkness began settling in, posting 11-under 131 and giving him his first 36-hole lead on tour since the Valero Texas Open in 2017. “My expectation was to come out and compete, and I felt like my game was in a good spot,” Cauley said. “Saying it is one thing, doing it is another. I’m really happy with how I’ve played. I feel like my game has been trending in the right way. I’ve been hitting the …

UK Gardeners Urged To Take A Cotton Bud To Their Lawn

UK Gardeners Urged To Take A Cotton Bud To Their Lawn

[ad_1] As the warmer spring rolls around, gardeners might be gearing up to mow their lawns. But Timothy Greene at icanlawn.com has said that it might be a little too early for some lawns; and cutting them now can even cause some significant damage. “People might be keen to get their gardens sorted in time for spring but mowing your lawn when the grass is too short can cause damage and stop it growing back properly,” he said. There’s actually a specific height at which it’s safe to cut your lawn ― and you can find it by taking a cotton bud to your lawn, Greene says. How? “The ideal height for grass to be before you cut is around 5cm to 7cm, which is around the same height as a cotton earbud,” the lawn expert revealed. “This height means the grass is growing well and is safe to cut. But you should also make sure there’s no frost and the lawn isn’t wet either,” he says. It’s important to make sure that you have …

Super Bowl Ads Go Political with Bud Light, RFK Jr and Jesus

Super Bowl Ads Go Political with Bud Light, RFK Jr and Jesus

[ad_1] Incomprehensible MAGA-land predictions that Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce would rig the Super Bowl and endorse Joe Biden for president to 100 million American viewers as part of a massive psy-op turned out to have been greatly exaggerated. Mostly, they just kissed a lot.  But that’s not to say our nation’s fractious politics didn’t break through during the broadcast. While most of the ads involved the usual self-effacing celebrities asserting their cultural relevance — and some of them were crowd-pleasers and even funny — a number of them touched on some of the most divisive issues of the day: religion, the presidential race and Bud Light.  Going in, all eyes were on the last, the object of a polarizing 2023 boycott from conservative groups for having collaborated with trans influencer Dylan Mulvaney on an Instagram campaign to promote March Madness. Sales slumped. Kid Rock strafed at Bud Light cases with his machine gun (and actually managed to hit a few cans). The brand lost its No. 1 status, and the company made moves to capitulate, despite …

Conservatives are backpedaling on their Bud Light boycott. To understand why, follow the money

Conservatives are backpedaling on their Bud Light boycott. To understand why, follow the money

[ad_1] Last week, ten months after numerous right-leaning public figures called for a boycott of Bud Light because of the beer brand’s short-lived partnership with transgender influencer Dylan Mulvaney, former President Donald Trump took to Truth Social to say that it’s a “Great American Brand that perhaps deserves a Second Chance.”  “The Bud Light ad was a mistake of epic proportions, and for that a very big price was paid,” Trump wrote on his social media platform. “On the other hand, Anheuser-Busch spends $700 Million a year with our GREAT Farmers, employ 65 thousand Americans, of which 1,500 are Veterans, and is a Founding Corporate Partner of Folds of Honor, which provides Scholarships for families of fallen Servicemen & Women. They’ve raised over $30,000,000 and given 44,000 Scholarships.” Trump isn’t the only conservative to soften his stance on the Bud Light boycott in recent months. In November, for instance, musician Kid Rock — who infamously kicked off his boycott of the brand by tearfully shooting cases of Bud Light in a field — told “Fox …

Caitlyn Jenner says Bud Light made “a huge mistake” partnering with trans influencer Dylan Mulvaney

Caitlyn Jenner says Bud Light made “a huge mistake” partnering with trans influencer Dylan Mulvaney

[ad_1] On Tuesday, Republican commentator and reality television star Caitlyn Jenner sprung to the defense of Bud Light, saying that it was time for fellow conservatives to “move forward” from their boycott of the company. Jenner’s comments came after former president Donald Trump posted to Truth Social about the company, saying that the sponsored advertisement Bud Light made in collaboration with transgender influencer and activist Dylan Mulvaney was a “mistake of epic proportions” but that “Anheuser-Busch is a Great American Brand that perhaps deserves a Second Chance?” Jenner, who came out as a transgender woman during a “20/20” television interview with Diana Sawyer in April 2015,  jumped in to agree with Trump.  “As someone that worked for this incredible American company, and got to know them very well, I raced for @AnheuserBusch in the 80’s I agree with @realDonaldTrump,” wrote Jenner on social media. “Look at what the company does for so many Americans and their track record over the years. They made a huge mistake and have paid a large price. I think it …

Dylan Mulvaney says woman-of-the-year award ‘means so much more’ after Bud Light backlash | LGBTQ+ rights

[ad_1] After gaining Attitude magazine’s first-ever woman of the year award, US trans activist Dylan Mulvaney said receiving such recognition from the UK-based LGBTQ+ publication “means so much more” after a substantial transphobic backlash undermined her Bud Light advertisement. “No matter how hard I try or what I wear, or what I say, or what surgeries I get, I will never reach an acceptable version of womanhood by those hateful people’s standards,” Mulvaney said in social media videos that showed her accepting the award this week. “But as long as I have the queer community that sees me for my truth – I’m gonna be OK.” Mulvaney attracted a following on the social media platform TikTok, by documenting her journey as a trans woman, her reflections on coming out, building a new wardrobe and undertaking gender-affirming care. Her 365 Days of Girlhood videos resulted in two collaborations with Bud Light. The first went unnoticed. The second – a 60-second social media video on 1 April tagged #BudLightPartner that showed her sipping a beer in a …

Influencer Dylan Mulvaney condemns Bud Light’s response to transphobia | LGBTQ+ rights

[ad_1] Dylan Mulvaney has spoken out against Bud Light, criticizing the brand for not supporting her amid transphobic backlash to an advertisement featuring the influencer. In a TikTok video captioned “Trans people like beer, too”, Mulvaney, who is trans, called out Bud Light for largely abandoning her after she was bullied for posting a sponsored video to Instagram with the beer brand. “For a company to hire a trans person and then not publicly stand by them is worse, in my opinion, than not hiring a trans person at all,” said Mulvaney, adding that the lack of condemnation allowed “customers to be as hateful and transphobic as they want”. Mulvaney said that after posting the advertisement for Bud Light, she faced “more bullying and transphobia than I could have ever imagined”. Mulvaney said she wanted to make a video explaining her feelings on the situation months ago, but didn’t, fearing more anti-trans backlash. “I patiently waited for things to get better,” she said. “But surprise: they haven’t, really.” Mulvaney said that amid the bullying, the …
