FORT MYERS, Fla. – South Korea’s Min Seo Kwak won the inaugural Patty Berg Memorial on Sunday at Cypress Lake for her first Symetra Tour title. The 23-year-old Kwak had four consecutive birdies early on the back nine and finished with a 3-under 69 for a three-stroke victory over Australia’s Stephanie Na. Kwak won in her 65th start on the tour. ”It’s really nice to win this week. I’ve worked harder this year than I did last year,” Kwak said. ”I wish my mom was here to see my win, but it feels great to win.” She earned $15,000 to jump from 37th to fourth on the money list with $19,556. The top 10 at the end of the season will earn 2015 LPGA Tour cards. Na finished with a 71. Cindy Feng and Demi Runas tied for third at 2 under. Feng, the money leader with $41,407, had a 71, and Runas shot 69.
PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. – If Ernie Els keeps playing this well, he may have a big problem. If he keeps turning back the clock at the Honda Classic, he may find himself with a lot more work on his hands when he captains the Internationals against the Americans at Royal Melbourne in Australia. If Els finishes what he started Thursday at PGA National, he may find a bunch of players who idolized him at his door, lobbying for him to tee it up with Tiger Woods as dueling playing captains. Hey, if Els can win his 20th PGA Tour title this week, why not? Els didn’t look like a guy slogging toward his 50th birthday in the first round. He looked like the guy so many of these international players grew up admiring. He looked as good as he was when he won the Honda Classic in ’08. “Oh my God, I’ve looked up to him,” Venezuela’s Jhonattan Vegas. Vegas could have meant that literally. Off to his own hot start, Vegas kept seeing Els climbing the leaderboard with him. “You feel like you had to push harder to keep up with him,” Vegas said. Vegas took the early lead with a 6-under-par 64. Els shot 66. Full-field scores from the Honda Classic Honda Classic: Articles, photos and videos “Ernie played fantastic,” fellow South African Charl Schwartzel said after opening with a 67. “With the success he’s had at Royal Melbourne, he can pick himself, the way he’s playing.” OK, OK, it’s just one round. It’s easy to get carried away. Nobody knows that better than Els, but while he continues to insist he is not interested in being a playing captain, there’s a gleam in his eye when he talks about Royal Melbourne. “I have won there three times, and I do have the course record there,” Els said as he walked to his car after the round. Uh, huh. “Maybe if I magically find a lot of form, if I win another major, if I can win three more times, yeah, absolutely I’ll do it,” Els says with a laugh. Maybe if his putting stroke, a source of frustration as he has aged, continues to look as solid as it did on Thursday . . . But Els quickly catches himself. “It’s just not in the equation,” he said. “There’s so much to do, especially on my side of the captaincy. Tiger could be a little bit more comfortable doing it. He’s got a team of guys who have played Ryder Cups and Presidents Cups and who have been around it for many years. “I can see doing it from their point of view, but, from my point of view, I have a lot of work to do. I have to educate the guys around the golf course, how it sets up, how to play it. There’s a lot of things on my mind. It would be a difficult decision.” Yeah, but if he keeps outplaying the Internationals he is supposed to be scouting . . . Els was paired in the first round with Adam Scott and Kiradech Aphibarnrat, two players expected to make his team. Els put up a score six shots better than Scott in the first round, and nine better than Aphibarnrat. Els was asked what reaching 20 PGA Tour wins would mean to him. “It’s late in my career, but I’ll take any win now,” he said. “I’m not thinking about it. I’m just thinking about tomorrow’s round and so forth. “But it would be magic.”

Keysight Technologies has announced the U2040 X-Series of wide dynamic range power sensors, consisting of four USB models for wireless and radar applications, and a dedicated LAN model for satellite testing. This series of sensors have an extremely wide dynamic range and high measurement speeds that enable them to make accurate and repeatable power measurements.The U2040 X-Series has a 96 dB dynamic range, spanning -70 dBm to +26 dBm enabling accurate power measurements of very small signals, critical for applications such as wireless chipset and power amplifier module manufacturing. With the new average mode time selectivity feature, users are able to make both average and time selectivity average power measurements across the full 96 dB dynamic range. This is a significant improvement when compared to conventional power sensors, which often limit time-gated dynamic range measurements at around 50 dB.One of the most notable features of the U2040 X-Series is its measurement speed of 10,000 readings per second in fast/buffer mode. This speed enables the sensors to measure continously in real time. Conventionally sensors only provide a snapshot of continuous pulses, leaving dead time where glitches can slip by unnoticed. This speed is almost 10 times greater than existing power sensors from Keysight and other companies, enabling continous measurement.The U2040 X-Series provides broadband coverage for any modulated signal, and covers all common wireless signal formats such as LTE, LTE-Advanced with 100 MHz bandwidth, and WLAN 802.11ac with 80/160 MHz bandwidth. Built-in radar and wireless presets allow faster test set up, and for data capture and analysis, engineers can use the Keysight BenchVue software, which is bundled free of charge with each sensor.U2049XA LAN Power Sensor:The U2049XA LAN power sensor achieves a number of industry firsts: 1) it is the world’s first thermal vacuum compliant (TVAC) power sensor; and 2) it is the first power sensor to come with LAN/Power over Ethernet (PoE) connectivity.U2049XA sensors with the thermal vacuum compliance option are subjected to temperature cycling in a vacuum chamber, and are created using components with minimal outgassing properties. The LAN-based sensor overcomes the cable length limitations associated with USB connectivity and is suitable for distances up to 100 meters. Together with best-in-class long term drift performance and a frequency range of 10 MHz to 33 GHz, the U2049XA is ideal for fault detection and long distance, remote monitoring of satellite systems.
