The former top-ranked amateur mixed an eagle, four birdies and a bogey for a five-under-par 66 in windy conditions at El Camaleon Golf Club where he and Argentine Emiliano Grillo were a shot clear of Norway's Viktor Hovland. "Took me a couple holes to like figure it out a little bit with the wind and stuff, but I'm really happy the way I played and the way I finished," Niemann said. World number three Justin Thomas, the highest-ranked player in the field, carded a one-over-par 72 that included a double-bogey at the par-four 14th.
Iran is unlikely to retaliate over the assassination of a prominent nuclear scientist before the inauguration of Joe Biden in case it jeopardizes any future sanctions relief, the top U.S. envoy on Iran told Reuters on Thursday. Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, who had little public profile in Iran but had been named by Israel as a prime player in what it says is Iran’s nuclear weapons quest, was killed on Friday when he was ambushed on a highway near Tehran and his car sprayed with bullets. Elliott Abrams, Washington's special representative on Iran and Venezuela, said in an interview that Tehran was "desperately" in need of sanctions relief from the United States and that would be a key calculation in their decision-making as President-elect Biden takes over from President Donald Trump on Jan. 20.

NASA has selected four companies to collect material on the moon and store it up as the space agency’s property, for a total price of $25,001. And one deal stands out: a $1 purchase that may rely on Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos’ Blue Origin space venture. Although this sounds like the sort of deal Amazon might have offered on Cyber Monday, neither Seattle-based Amazon nor Kent, Wash.-based Blue Origin is directly involved in the purchase. Instead, NASA accepted a $1 offer from Colorado-based Lunar Outpost, based on the expectation that the venture can set aside a sample for NASA when… Read More

Investors sent BT shares up after the communications regulator reaffirmed its support for upgrading the nation to gigabit-speed broadband. The telecoms giant rose 8.1p to 134.45p in the wake of a speech by Ofcom boss Melanie Dawes, who promised not to introduce price control on fibre broadband “until at least 2031”. Ofcom is laying the groundwork for a new regime from March next year, which will allow BT’s broadband builder Openreach to increase wholesale prices for rivals. That will hand Openreach certainty it can make a return on the £12bn it plans to sink into kitting out the nation with gigabit-speed broadband. Ms Dawes said “every investment carries some uncertainty” and it was right that broadband builders were “compensated for accepting that risk”. The jump left BT as one of London’s biggest blue-chip risers on a day of moderate gains for the FTSE 100, which outperformed as bourses across the continent registered narrow losses.

For the second year in a row, China has landed an ambitious robotic explorer on the moon. This mission, called Chang’e 5, will make the first attempt to return samples of lunar soil to earth since Russian robots and NASA’s crewed Apollo missions did so more than four decades ago. Technologically, a successful sample return will demonstrate China’s capacity for sophisticated systems engineering.
Nearly 65 million people globally have been infected by the disease and the worst affected country, United States, is currently battling a third wave of coronavirus infections.

U.S. appeals court judges appeared skeptical on Thursday of voiding a 2007 deal that shielded Jeffrey Epstein from child sex charges that one of his alleged victims says prevents her from talking to prosecutors about possible co-conspirators. The agreement shields unidentified alleged accomplices and nullifying it could impact the criminal case in New York against Ghislaine Maxwell, who stands accused of luring girls so Epstein could abuse them. Maxwell has pleaded not guilty.
