This year's focus is on changes to legal regulatory regimes in the Caribbean, both actual and
potential, as a result of, of inter alia, international assistance and/or restructuring programmes.
We will attempt to highlight a wide range of topics in this general area, including the effects of
regulatory changes to: corporate law, anti-money laundering, bribery and corruption rules,
insolvency law, rules related to mergers and acquisitions, competition law, international
commercial arbitration and litigation, law governing letters of credit, security interests, venture
capital, international trade law, international business law, employment law and energy law.
The Cave Hill Faculty of Law has assembled a team of distinguished academics and legal
practitioners from the Caribbean and North America to make presentations on topics of
immediate interest, including on: Transforming Tax and other Regulatory Regimes; Moving
Commercial Regulation into the 21st Century; Harmonising ICT Policies, Legislation and
Regulatory Procedures in the Caribbean.
In addition to the high level of the intellectual content of this year's CCLW, the event continues to
provide a unique and rare networking opportunity for Caribbean Commercial lawyers to meet and
exchange information and ideas among themselves and with their counterparts from the
Caribbean, North America and Europe.

DUBLIN---Tiger Woods hit a new low with a career
Right when it looked as though Woods was slowly
making some semblance of progress, he posted an 85
yesterday at the Memorial for the worst score of his
career. It was three shots higher than the 82 he shot
in the second round of the Phoenix Open in January,
which led to him taking a two-month break from
competition until he could get his game in order.
Woods ended his front nine with back-to-back
double bogeys for a 42. Needing a par on the 18th
hole to avoid his worst score, he hooked his tee shot
into the water, flubbed two chips from short of the
green and took a quadruple-bogey 8.
It was his third round in the 80s as a pro.
Woods, who had to make a 6-foot par putt on the
final hole Friday just to make the cut, declined interview
requests, walking out the door to sign a few autographs.
About 20 minutes later, his coach and caddie were
sitting at a curb waiting for a van to come by to get
He was in last place, meaning he would play as a
single Sunday for the first time in his career.
The broader question is where this leaves him with
a full summer of majors ahead. Woods showed remark-
able improvement when he returned from his break
at the Masters with a tie for 17th, though he was
never seriously in contention. And while he had to
make putts on his final hole just to survive the cut
in his last two tournaments, it still was the first time
in more than a year that he made the cut in three
And now this.
He missed a 4-foot par putt at the par-3 fourth
that was above the hole. He three-putted for bogey
on the par-5 fifth with another 4-foot putt above the
hole that he barely tapped. His round unraveled on
the par-3 eighth when he caught a tough lie in the
bunker, hit it thin over the green into another bunker
and made double bogey. And then he made another
double bogey when his approach to a front pin came
short and into the water.
He shot a 70 on Friday in the second round, with
two late bogeys, though his putter atoned for medi-
ocrity. He made two putts from the 30-foot range,
another from 20 feet and two others from about 15
Yesterday, he missed three putts from the 5-foot
range on the front nine alone. And in the end, all that
mattered was how big the number was going to be.
And it was big.
Woods shoots worst round of career at Memorial
Woods had only one round in the 80s
over the first 14 years of his PGA Tour career
---the 81 at Muirfield when he was caught
in a Saturday gale at the British Open. He
now has two scores in the 80s in his last 12
It spoiled a big day for Zac Blair, the baby-
faced rookie from Utah who was so fired up
about his first pairing with Woods that his
father flew in overnight to watch. Dad is
James Blair, who played on the PGA Tour
in 1984 and now is a golf director in Ogden.
The elder Blair played the PGA Champi-
onship at Valhalla in 2000, and 10-year-old
Zac came along. All he cared about was get-
ting Woods' autograph, which he did.
Blair was standing on the first tee as Woods
was finishing up on the putting green, and
the kid smiled and stuck out his hand to
greet his idol. Then he hit driver down the
opening fairway---Woods hit 3-wood right
of the bunkers---and played a nice round of
70.He always dreamed of playing with Woods.
He never dreamed he would shoot 70 and
beat Woods by 15 shots.
Even as Woods was headed toward the
worst score of his career, Blair said he was
"super nice, super friendly, was always willing
After the round, Blair posted a note to
Woods on Twitter: "Nice to meet you. I'm
sure we will tee it up again!" He ended with
the hashtag "goat"---greatest of all time.
Woods was at his absolute best when Blair
was a 10-year-old kid at the Valhalla club-
house trying to get his autograph. Woods
went on to win that PGA in a playoff on his
way to becoming the only player to sweep
the four professional majors.
Woods hasn't won a major since his 14th
at Torrey Pines in the 2008 US Open. He
hasn't won a tournament in his last 20 events
dating to August 2013.
