Utah’s Sue Nyhus back in the pack after first round of U.S. Senior Women’s Open

first_img Utah’s Sue Nyhus will be making golf history this week in North Carolina. Here’s why Related Utah’s Sue Nyhus shot a 14-over 85 in the first round of the U.S. Senior Women’s Open Thursday at Pine Needles Golf Club in Southern Pines, N.C., which puts her in a tie for 98th place.It wasn’t the start Nyhus was hoping for as she plays in a record ninth United States Golf Association event, the most any man or woman has played in.The 56-year-old from Orem, who is the women’s golf coach at Utah Valley University, got off to a rough start as she made double bogey at her first hole, the par-5 10th hole. She also double-bogeyed No. 15 and had bogeys at 11, 13, 14, 15 and 18 for a 45. She played better on her second nine as she made five bogeys for a 40.None of the golfers in the 120-player field could break par Thursday as Danielle Ammaccapane had the best score with a 1-over-par 72. To make the 50-golfer cut, Nyhus will likely need to shoot around 74 or 75 in Friday’s second round.last_img read more

But Juventus showed why they boast the best defensive record in the competition as Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar were blunted as the Italians gained revenge for their defeat in the 2015 Champions League final.Juventus join holders Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid and Monaco in Friday’s semi-final draw.Straight from kick-off the visitors seemed determined to learn from the French champions’ mistakes.Barcelona’s Neymar (L) and teammate Jordi Alba bend over after their UEFA Champions League quarter-final second leg match against Juventus at the Camp Nou stadium in Barcelona on April 19, 2017 © AFP / Marco BERTORELLOMassimiliano Allegri’s men pressed high to prevent Barca dominating possession and enjoyed the better of the early chances.Former Real Madrid striker Gonzalo Higuain volleyed over from the edge of the area before only a brilliant challenge from Gerard Pique prevented Juan Cuadrado’s cross providing Higuain with a tap in.Barca had to wait 19 minutes for their first clear sight of goal as they intricately worked the ball around a packed Juventus box before Messi fired inches wide.Messi then Gianluigi Buffon’s palms for the first time on the half hour mark.At the other end, Higuain threatened again when he just couldn’t get enough power on Miralem Pjanic’s dinked cross to beat Marc-Andre ter Stegen.Neymar had been Barca’s hero in a remarkable finish with two goals and an assist in the final minutes against PSG.Barcelona’s Lionel Messi grimaces during their UEFA Champions League quarter-final second leg football match against Juventus at the Camp Nou stadium in Barcelona on April 19, 2017 © AFP / Marco BERTORELLOYet, he found it far harder up against friend and former Barca teammate Dani Alves and his frustrations at a perceived lack of protection from referee Bjorn Kuipers spilled over as he was booked just before half-time.Juventus also had the first big chance of the second half as Cuadrado fired across Ter Stegen but wide of the far post.Ter Stegen was then forced to turn behind another driven effort from the Colombian.Messi was being forced to come deep in search of possession, but he briefly had Juventus hearts in mouths with a low effort that was deflected inches wide.Barca boss Luis Enrique forlornly turned to Paco Alcacer from the bench as the hosts played with four forwards for the final half hour.Messi had another big chance after a rare Buffon handling error from a corner, but unfortunately for Barca it fell on his right foot and the Argentine fired well over.Sergi Roberto was Barca’s unlikely hero with the 95th minute goal that sealed the 6-1 win over PSG six weeks ago.Barcelona’s Luis Suarez (L) is tackled by Juventus’ Sami Khedira during their UEFA Champions League quarter-final second leg football match at the Camp Nou stadium in Barcelona on April 19, 2017 © AFP / Josep LAGOHe nearly delivered another important and rare goal, but when the right-back’s effort flew inches wide 20 minutes from time so did Barcelona’s hopes.Juventus comfortably saw out the final stages to register their eighth clean sheet in 10 Champions League games this season.And the only negative news of the night for the Bianconeri was a yellow card for Sami Khedira that will rule the German international out of the first leg of their semi-final.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Readers weigh in with personal views

first_imgAll the comments conveyed the idea that regardless of how it directly affected them, Sept. 11 touched them deeply. As one young commentator who celebrated his 11th birthday on the same day five years ago wrote, “so even though it’s my day to celebrate, I will never forget September 11th, 2001.” To read all the comments in their entirety or contribute your own please go to our forum at www. whittierdailynews.com. Editor’s note: You left comments on our “Remembering 9/11” forum that ranged from uplifting to poignant. While some touched on the United States’ involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan, others revealed how different an ordinary birthday could be when it fell on that day. One commentator wrote “September 11th changed that day, not just for me but for the world. No longer unremarkable, it became a defining moment in history.” Several said they have family members in the military on active duty, and one reader “across the pond” left a brief note, writing that “my heart goes out to all.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
