  • McIlroy in nine over nightmare at Irish Open

    McIlroy's score left the four-time Major Champion with the embarrassment of being last among the morning starters while fellow PGA Championship and US Open winner Martin Kaymer, who played alongside McIlroy, was only marginally better with a round of eight-over 79. McIlroy's score is his poorest in Europe since a similar score of 80 on day two of the 2010 Open Championship at St. Andrews. "Off the tee I felt my game was okay and I put myself in positions but then as I got closer to the greens, the worse it got," said McIlroy.

  • Insight - All at sea: Australia's search for MH370 under scrutiny

    Nearly a year after embarking on a multi-million dollar quest to solve one of aviation's greatest unsolved mysteries, authorities and search teams are being criticised over their approach to finding Flight MH370 in the remote southern Indian Ocean. The Australian-led search, already the most expensive in aviation history, has found no trace of the Malaysia Airlines jet or its 239 passengers and crew, prompting calls for a rethink into the way the mission is conducted. Heightening concerns, Australian authorities said on Wednesday that another search vessel, the Go Phoenix, which is using the world's best deep sea search equipment and crew provided by U.S. firm Phoenix International Holdings Inc, would pull out within weeks.

  • Six-decade war secret unearthed

    For 60 years Albany man Lyall Wilkinson knew where his grandfather’s World War I medals were hiding – he had buried them deep into the soil underneath a jarrah tree on his family’s Cranbrook farm when he was seven. Mr Wilkinson, now 67, had found them when exploring as a young boy – they were sitting in a tin box inside a chest in the spare room – and as adventurous boys do, he decided he’d bury them as treasure. The medals belonged to Walter James Wilkinson, who enlisted for service at the Western Front in 1915 at age 44 and served for two years.
