Alabama men, Arkansas women hold Blessings leads entering final round

We’re two rounds through the Blessings Collegiate Invitational, and here’s where things stand entering Wednesday’s final round in Fayetteville, Arkansas:

Men’s team leader: Alabama. The Tide have reentered the chat. Four players shot under par Tuesday as Alabama fired a 6-under 282 to take a two-shot lead over first-round leader Tennessee. Sophomore Tyler Lipscomb led the way with a 3-under 69 that pushed him into a share of 15th individual. Sophomore Thomas Ponder and senior Wilson Furr, the U.S. Amateur medalist two months ago, sit T-4 and T-9, respectively. But the big story this week has been senior Davis Shore, who has missed much of the past two seasons because of a hip injury but fired one of three 1-under 71s for Alabama in Round 2.

Amazon to hold Prime Day in October, aiming to kickstart holiday shopping season early

NEW YORK — Amazon is aiming to kickstart the holiday shopping season early this year.

The company is holding its annual Prime Day over two days in October this year, after the pandemic forced it to postpone the sales event from July. It’s the first time Prime Day is being held in the fall, and Amazon is positioning it as a way to get people to start their holiday shopping.

Even before Amazon’s announcement Monday, major retailers have said they plan to push shoppers to start their holiday shopping in October and offer deals earlier, hoping to avoid crowds in their stores in November and December.

Prime Day, which will run from Oct. 13 to Oct. 14 this year, is sure to put pressure on rivals to offer deals around the same time. In past years, Walmart, Best Buy and Target have offered their own online discounts during Prime Day.
