NCAA Women’s Golf Championships 2015: Daily Results, Leaderboard Updates, More

The 2015 NCAA Women’s Golf Championships are officially underway from Concession Golf Club in Bradenton, Florida. Leading the field are a slew of Pac-12 powers, including Washington, UCLA and Stanford. 

Duke is the defending national champion and coming off another fantastic season with a 71.55 team rating, per NCAA.com, which was sixth in the nation. Leona Maguire leads the Blue Devils charge, as she’s currently ranked first in the world amateur rankings and was named ACC Freshman and Player of the Year. 

Here’s a recap of all the daily action from Concession Golf Club, as well as full team results for the NCAA Women’s Golf Championships. 

 

Day 1 Recap

The story on Friday’s opening day was weather. Lightning caused a delay just before 5 p.m. ET, though teams would get back on the course for nearly two more hours before it came back and forced play to be suspended with just half the field completing their round.

Play will resume on Saturday, per Steve Carp of the Las Vegas Review-Journal:

Duke has the best score among teams that were able to finish on Friday, shooting a five-over 293. Maguire led the Blue Devils with a one-under 71, which is more than one full stroke higher than where she has been in her last five tournaments, via Beth Ann Nichols of Golf Week

It’s hard to blame Maguire for “underperforming” given the tricky weather conditions in Florida on Thursday. Her rise in the United States has been meteoric, making an instant impression as a freshman coming from Ireland. 

Maguire talked about where her game is at and improvements she’s made since the season started with Josh Sens of Golf.com.

“It’s hard to single out just one thing,” Maguire said. “My iron game has been pretty strong of late. I’ve given myself a lot of good opportunities. But I’ve also been spending a fair amount of time in the gym, and I’ve gotten a lot longer.”

However, the round of the day was being put up by Stanford’s Mariah Stackhouse before lightning forced her off the course. She was at four under par through 12 holes before Mother Nature decided it couldn’t stand seeing someone dominating the course.

Stackhouse wasn’t the only player on pace to shoot in the 60s, as Jason Dill of the Bradenton Herald noted Alabama’s Emma Talley was one off the pace:

Thanks in large part to Stackhouse’s efforts, the Cardinal were on pace to be in the lead at the end of Round 1 at plus-three for the foursome. Shannon Aubert (even through 13) and Lauren Kim (one over through 11) were posting solid rounds behind the All-Conference star. 

Duke has been one of the NCAA powers in women’s golf since its inception in 1982, winning six championships. Stanford is looking for its first title, so this was a good starting salvo even if it was incomplete due to bad weather. 

Baylor is also right in the mix at seven over par before its round was halted, and USC is just four strokes behind Duke with all of its players in the clubhouse. There will be a lot of action taking place on Saturday to get 12 teams caught up, so expect a lot of moving on the leaderboard before it’s all said and done.

Selfie, Bacon, and Avocado Among Emoji Proposed for Inclusion in 2016’s Unicode 9

The Unicode Consortium today released a list of 38 emoji characters that are candidates for inclusion in Unicode 9.0, which is set to be released in the middle of 2016. These represent emoji that could be available on iOS and Mac devices in the future.

Candidates include a range of different character emoji, from “face with cowboy hat to “drooling face” and “lying face.” “Selfie,” an emoji represented by a hand holding a camera, is also on the list, as is “shrug,” and “handshake.” As for food, emoji proposals include croissant, avocado, cucumber, bacon, potato, and carrot. There are also several proposed animal additions: fox face, eagle, duck, bat, shark, and owl.

emojicandidates
According to the Unicode Consortium, these emoji have been chosen for several reasons. Some are proposed based on expected high frequency of use or due to requests from online communities. Others on the list fill in gaps in existing emoji sets or are compatible with emoji characters in existing systems.

Emoji candidates are not finalized so it’s possible that some of the characters on the list could be removed before Unicode 9 is released in 2016, and it’s also possible that additional characters could be added to the list.

The emoji proposed for inclusion in Unicode 9 are separate from the emoji that will be included in Unicode 8. Unicode 8, which includes specifications for the emoji modifiers that Apple introduced with iOS 8.3 and OS X 10.10.3, is set to be released in mid-2015 and is currently in beta testing.

Emoji additions proposed for Unicode 8 include zipper-mouth face, nerd face, thinking face, robot face, hugging face, hot dog, burrito, taco, cheese wedge, popcorn, and unicorn face, among others.

It is not known if and when Apple will adopt the Unicode 8 and Unicode 9 emoji as it still has not added the Unicode 7 emoji that were finalized in June of 2014.

How One Boy’s Superhero Wish Inspired the World and the Documentary ‘Batkid Begins’

Back in 2013, Miles Scott was chosen by the San Francisco Make-A-Wish foundation to get his wish granted. Like many children his age, he wanted to be Batman. What no one could have expected was the outpouring of love and support for his wish and how large in scale it would become. On November 15, 2013, twenty-five thousand people descended on San Francisco to help put a smile on Miles’ face as he raced around town fighting villains and ultimately saving the day. Batkid Begins chronicles the journey of turning his childhood desires into a reality – and how “going viral” has the potential to make a large impact on the world around us. Batkid Begins opens in theaters on June 26.
