In New Orleans and South Korea, the contest between Englishmen to be world No 1 resumes today. Luke Donald, the current No 3, plays the Zurich Classic in Louisiana, hoping to atone for his play-off defeat in The Heritage title. He is seeking to overtake Lee Westwood, who regained his supremacy in Indonesia last weekend and competes this week for the Ballantine's Championship in Incheon.

At 4.30 on the morning of April 12 1861 – 150 years ago this week – the newly-formed Confederate States of America opened fire on Fort Sumter, located near the entrance to Charleston Harbor, South Carolina and held by troops loyal to the Union. This was the spark for conflict, the scale of which was glimpsed by virtually no-one in 1861. By war's end four years later, some 620,000 Americans would be dead.
