NCAA Men’s Golf Championships 2015: Winner, Leaderboard Standings and More

The LSU Tigers claimed their first national championship since 1955 with a 4-1 win over the USC Trojans on Wednesday. The win snapped the longest drought between titles in history. It was LSU’s fifth in the history of the golf program and 43rd national title for the athletic program. The NCAA’s official Twitter account tweeted its congratulation:

Here’s a look at the scores of each head-to-head match:

  • Brandon Pierce (LSU) defeated Rico Hoey (USC), 2 and 1
  • Ben Taylor (LSU) defeated Bobby Gojuangco (USC) 1-Up
  • Zach Wright (LSU) defeated Sean Crocker (USC), 3 and 2
  • Eric Ricard (LSU) defeated Jonah Texeira (USC), 1-Up
  • Eric Sugimoto (USC) defeated Stewart Jolly (LSU), 1-Up

This was the third year in a row that a SEC team took home the crown. Ben Taylor clinched the win with a six-foot putt that defeated the Trojans’ Bobby Gojuangco. Here’s a look at the putt:

That wasn’t the only big shot the senior from England contributed to his team’s cause. On the 17th hole, Taylor set up the win with a great approach shot that put him in an excellent position to sink a huge eagle putt. Michael Bonnette of LSU caught that putt on video as well:


While it was Taylor who sank the putts most will remember, it’s only right—no pun intended—to acknowledge Zach Wright’s contributions.

He was a perfect 3-0 in match play this season and the junior is 5-0 in the format in his collegiate career. Only Patrick Reed has compiled a better record in match play. The current pro was 6-0 in his days at Augusta State.

The team and head coach Chuck Winstead spoke about their accomplishment via Golf Channel after their victory:

Obviously, the loss was a disappointing one for the Trojans. While this year’s team advanced further than any previous one in the program’s history, the Trojans still haven’t won a national championship in golf in 56 appearances.

On the bright side, the team has just one senior. Head coach Chris Zambri will only lose Eric Sugimoto to graduation. Thus he should have a strong bunch returning for the 2015-16 season. Sugimoto can take some solace in the fact that he was the only member of his team to win a match in the clash with the eventual national champions.

Perhaps a professional career is on the horizon for he and the other seniors involved, like LSU’s Taylor and Jolly. Whether they continue to play competitively or not, all can say they were a part of a memorable tournament and piece of college golf history.

Redesigned Apple TV Not Ready for WWDC Debut

Despite early rumors suggesting Apple would introduce a redesigned Apple TV set-top box at its Worldwide Developers Conference in June, it appears the device will not be ready to debut at that time. In a report covering what to expect at WWDC, The New York Times’ Brian X. Chen writes that Apple has postponed its plans because the product is “not ready for prime time.”

Yet one much ballyhooed device will be absent from the conference: a new Apple TV, Apple’s set-top box for televisions. The company planned as recently as mid-May to use the event to spotlight new Apple TV hardware, along with an improved remote control and a tool kit for developers to make apps for the entertainment device. But those plans were postponed partly because the product was not ready for prime time, according to two people briefed on the product.

Apple has not introduced a revamped version of its Apple TV since 2012, leading to years of rumors and speculation about the company’s plans for the device. Since 2013, nearly every Apple event has been targeted as the venue where we’ll see a new version of the Apple TV, but no product has materialized as of yet.

According to the most recent rumors, Apple is currently working on a new version of the Apple TV that will include ambitious additions like a full App Store that supports apps and games, Siri support, and an SDK for developers. It is also said to include an A8 chip, an increase in internal storage, and a touch-based remote.

There is no word on when the Apple TV might debut, but it’s possible that it could be introduced later this year alongside Apple’s rumored subscription television service. Apple was said to be targeting a WWDC launch for its TV service, but those plans were also delayed as the necessary deals are not yet in place.

With its subscription television service and set-top box off the table for the Worldwide Developers Conference, the event will focus on iOS 9, OS X 10.11, and the company’s new Beats-based streaming music service. The Apple Watch will also be a major focus, with Apple planning to debut native Apple Watch apps as shared by Jeff Williams last week.

Scientists come a step closer to “regrowing” limbs

The decellularized rat forelimb is injected with muscle and vascular cells

Currently, recipients of arm or leg transplants need to take immunosuppressive drugs for the rest of their lives, in order to keep the donated parts from being rejected. If we could grow our own replacement limbs, however, that wouldn’t be necessary. And while we do already possess the progenitor cells needed to grow such parts, what’s been lacking is a method of assembling them into the form of the desired limb. Now, however, scientists have created a shortcut of sorts – they’ve stripped the cells from one rat’s forelimb and replaced them with live cells from another rat, creating a functioning limb that the second rat’s immune system won’t reject.
