Lucy Li, 11, shoots 78 and misses U.S. Women's Open cut

 

PINEHURST, N.C – Lucy Li started her second round on Friday in the U.S. Women's Open a shot inside the cut line and had everyone on this massive property at Pinehurst No. 2 hoping for the incredible.
Unfortunately, the 11-year-old sixth grader, who is the youngest player ever to qualify for the U.S. Women's Open, did not become the youngest player to ever make the cut in the tournament's history.
Not that she's heartbroken.
"It was a lot of fun," Li said as she stood on a box to reach the microphone for her post-round interview. The 5-1 Li shot rounds of 78-78 to miss the cut, with each round consisting of two birdies.
"I guess that it was fun because I had two great playing partners. They were really nice," she said of Catherine O'Donnell and Jessica Wallace. "It was fun I guess because I did a good job of staying patient and going to the next shot and not caring about what happens.
" … You have to be patient. That's what I learned. Definitely. Because I did a good job of that this week and it really helped because I got triples and I came back with birdies. That's what's really important."
While Li didn't get any autographs from the players – "I'm not really big on autographs," she said – she signed a couple hundred during the week. She filled up on ice cream bars. And she got e-mails from her friends.
"They have been really excited," she said. "They thought I played really well. They're like, 'Oh, you're famous now."
Li won the crowds over with her carefree attitude and just plain cuteness. Plus a game that astonished elders helped, too.
Li's caddie Bryan Bush, who is a professional caddie at Pinehurst and the Maroon Creek Club in Aspen, Colo., said he's been impressed from the first day he met the tiny girl one month ago.

World Cup 2014: France Defeats Switzerland, 5-2

France truly blitzed Switzerland — midfielders, forwards, wing backs all surging downfield together. Winning 5-2, the French got their five goals from five different players: Olivier Giroud, Blaise Matuidi, Mathieu Valbuena, Karim Benzema and Moussa Sissoko.
The Swiss had moments of possession, but they did seem like mere moments. In the final 10 minutes of the game, Switzerland managed to score two goals — by Blerim Dzemaili and Granit Xhaka — which will help them if goal difference becomes a factor in deciding who goes through to the next round. But they shouldn’t need that. Their final opponent is Honduras, and if the Swiss win that game, they are likely to be safe.
France, now on top of the group with 6 points from two games, only need to tie Ecuador in their final match, next Wednesday, to get through.
An optimistic omen for the French is that the last time they won their two opening games (as they’ve done here) was in 1998 — and they went on to win the whole tournament, in Paris. Although no European team has ever won the World Cup in South America, France looks like a fine candidate to try to be the first.

Jason Momoa News | Pictures | Videos

 

Joseph Jason Namakaeha Momoa is an American actor, model, director, writer, and producer. He is known for his television roles as Ronon Dex on the military science fiction television series Stargate.

Born Joseph Jason Namakaeha Momoa in Honolulu, Hawaii, on August 1st, 1979, Jason was raised in Norwalk, Iowa by his mother. After high school, he moved to Hawaii where he landed a lead role out of thousands of hopefuls in the TV series, Baywatch (known as "Baywatch Hawaii" in its tenth season). When the show ended, he spent the next couple of years traveling around the world. In 2001, he moved to Los Angeles where he continued to pursue an acting career.In 2004, after the short-lived TV series North Shore, he was cast as the popular character "Ronon Dex" in the TV series Stargate: Atlantis, which achieved a cult-like following. In 2010, he appeared in the Emmy-nominated HBO series Game of Thrones playing the Dothraki King, "Khal Drogo". To illustrate to the producers he was Khal Drogo, he performed the Haka, a traditional war dance of the Maori of New Zealand. The audition was with the same casting director who was casting the titular role in the reboot of Conan the Barbarian. Four weeks after he was cast as the popular Robert E. Howard character, he began shooting in Bulgaria. His approach, like the filmmakers, was to pull from the eight decades of comics and stories as well as the Frank Frazetta images rather than the hugely popular 1982 movie.Jason has a production company, "Pride of Gypsies", in which he is expanding his career from actor to filmmaker. He has directed a couple of short films and is working on his feature film debut "Road to Paloma" which is pulled from a series of stories he's been developing over the years which he calls the Brown Bag Diaries: Ridin' the Blinds in B Minor.Jason lives with actress Lisa Bonet with whom he has two children: Lola and Nakoa-Wolf.  See full bio on IMDb »
