Myrtle Beach based airline Direct Air announced Tuesday that it has suspended all flights until May 15th. “The decision was made to address operational matters. We are currently evaluating strategic alternatives for Direct Air...Direct Air is committed to our passengers, employees, and the communities we serve.” according to a statement posted Tuesday on the company’s website, Direct Air. This statement was issued a day after all flights were halted because of unpaid fuel bills. Two of the carriers that fly planes for Direct Air filed notices with the U.S. Department of Transportation that they would stop all Direct Air flights because bills haven’t been paid, DOT spokesman Bill Mosley said. “They said they notified the operator, Direct Air, that they would cancel all future flights effective immediately...They cited non-payment.” Mosley said. Direct Air marketing officer Ed Warneck blamed the suspended flights on skyrocketing fuel costs. "Direct Air missed a fuel bill, which led to not being able to fuel up the planes." Warneck said. He said “It’s temporary,” he said of the suspended flights. “We will have this fixed.”

Yoshio Yamamoto has been a regular this past month at Barefoot, winning the final event of the "Barefoot Swing" on the Norman Course at Barefoot Resort & Golf. He has been close the last two events, however couldn't seal the deal on the final day. Going into the final round he was three shots back of Brock Elder who carded a tournament low 67 in the second round. Facing strong winds in the the final round, Yoshio carded a final round 70 which gave him the overall title and the only player to shoot under par in the final round.The irony to all this is Yoshio during the winter months, worked on his game with coach Scott Schobe, at the Greg Norman Champions Golf Academy. It was only fitting he recorded a win on the newly renovated Norman Course.
