William Moll, William Mouw and Ricky Castillo were tied at 4-under after 36 holes at the U.S. Junior Amateur Inverness Club in Toledo, Ohio, and all three earned medalist honors.

The subplot to the end of the stroke-play portion of the tournament was the 8-way playoff for the final seven spots to advance to match play.

Kevin Sze, Thomas Ponder, Brett Sodetz, Matthew Garside, Tafafumi Shimoji, Yuki Moriyama, Gaven Lane and Andi Xu all finished 7-over and T-50 but there was only room for seven of those golfers.

However, there was not enough time in the day on Tuesday, so the playoff will go off first thing on Wednesday at 7 a.m on No. 10.

The tournament will then flip to match play Wednesday, with the round of 64 starting at 7:40 a.m., through the 36-hole final on Saturday.

Mouw co-led after the first round with Karl Vilips. Vilips shot a second-round 73 and is T-10 at even par.

Defending champion Michael Thorbjornsen shot a 68 on Tuesday to climb into a tie for fourth along with Luke Potter.

The low round of the day, 68, was shot by four players: Moll, Castillo, Potter and Thorbjornsen. There were 15 rounds under par, compared to eight in the first round.

“It’s pretty special knowing that you have come out on top of 156 players, with two really good friends,” said Castillo in a statement released by the USGA.

“It’s cool, but it’s not the win,” said Mouw of sharing medalist honors. “I’m not too pumped. The job’s not finished.”

Did Brooks Koepka ghost Tiger Woods – or was it simply an old phone number? http://cincinnati.sportstonews.com/2019/07/16/did-brooks-koepka-ghost-tiger-woods-or-was-it-simply-an-old-phone-number/ http://cincinnati.sportstonews.com/2019/07/16/did-brooks-koepka-ghost-tiger-woods-or-was-it-simply-an-old-phone-number/#respond Tue, 16 Jul 2019 22:34:39 +0000 http://cincinnati.sportstonews.com/2019/07/16/did-brooks-koepka-ghost-tiger-woods-or-was-it-simply-an-old-phone-number/ Did Brooks Koepka ghost Tiger Woods heading up to the British Open - or was it simply an old phone number?

“OMG! Brooks Koepka ghosted Tiger Woods! 👻 #RIP 🐯”   

That appears to be the case after what Woods said during his pre-British Open press conference on Tuesday.

Woods, never having played Royal Portrush in Northern Ireland until this week, said he asked Brooks Koepka for a practice round at the site of the 148th Open Championship this week, hoping to glean some knowledge from Ricky Elliott, Koepka’s caddie and a native of Portrush.

Woods said he texted Koepka after his near win at the U.S. Open a month ago.

“Tell you a funny story. I texted Brooksie congratulations on another great finish,” Woods said. “What he’s done in the last four major championships has been just unbelievable. To be so consistent, so solid. He’s been in contention to win each and every Major Championship. And I said, Hey, dude, do you mind if I tag along and play a practice round?”

“I’ve heard nothing.”

Boom.

Tiger roasted.

Or was he?

The internet assumption is that Koepka, who spoke prior to Woods on Tuesday, made the ultimate Alpha Dog move in not responding to Woods, a 15-time major champion who is one victory away from Sam Snead’s all-time record of 82 pro tour victories.

There is another possibility at play here – one that doesn’t match the flair and tabloid potential of Koepka flat-out ignoring a text request from the greatest golfer this side of Jack Nicklaus.

You see, Koepka changed his phone number just before the U.S. Open at Pebble Beach in June.

At the time, Koepka said he had the same number for a while, but had begun  getting several calls and text messages from unfamiliar numbers.

“I don’t know if somebody leaked my phone number, but I got a bunch of text messages yesterday from some different numbers and a bunch of phone calls. So, it was probably about time,” he said.

“I’ve had it for about three years, four years. In major weeks, and just about week now, everybody’s texting asking for different things.”

Perhaps Tiger never got the update?

Or maybe Brooks is just being Brooks.

Brittany Lincicome details scare before premature birth of baby girl http://cincinnati.sportstonews.com/2019/07/16/brittany-lincicome-details-scare-before-premature-birth-of-baby-girl/ http://cincinnati.sportstonews.com/2019/07/16/brittany-lincicome-details-scare-before-premature-birth-of-baby-girl/#respond Tue, 16 Jul 2019 21:42:38 +0000 http://cincinnati.sportstonews.com/2019/07/16/brittany-lincicome-details-scare-before-premature-birth-of-baby-girl/ Brittany Lincicome details scare before premature birth of her baby girl earlier this month.

A pregnant Brittany Lincicome woke up on a recent Sunday morning feeling like she had cramps. She didn’t think much of it and boarded a flight to Chicago, bound for the Rockford PRO/AM.

After landing, she waited around at the airport for close friend Brittany Lang so they could ride to the hotel together and still wasn’t feeling too good.

“Of course, we Googled it,” said Lincicome.

Could it be dehydration or Braxton Hicks contractions? Lincicome thought a bath and a nap might help her feel better.

When that didn’t work, they reached out to Juli Inkster, who was on her way from the airport to the hotel. Inkster told Lang she needed to take Lincicome to the hospital immediately.

“Then I started freaking out inside,” said Lang, who is normally a pretty cool character.

Lincicome’s due date wasn’t for another two months.

They arrived at a Rockford, Ill., hospital at 4 p.m. and at 8 p.m. were transferred to a different hospital with a strong NICU (newborn intensive care unit).

Inkster and Lang sat with Lincicome throughout the day. Lincicome’s husband, Dewald Gouws, had trouble finding a flight out of Tampa, Fla. Finally, a seat opened up on a Southwest flight and he arrived at 2 a.m.

Lincicome gave birth to Emery Reign Gouws on July 8 at 3:50 p.m. local time in Rockford, Ill., exactly eight weeks before she was due. She weighed 4 pounds, 11 ounces.

“When she came out, she looked perfect and she was screaming,” said Lincicome, who’d never heard a sweeter sound.

Emery was only on oxygen for one day. Doctors tell Lincicome that Emery will likely have to stay at the Illinois hospital for another six weeks. Gouws travels back and forth weekly to St. Petersburg, Fla., for work, and keeps up with his wife and daughter via a camera in the room when he’s gone.

Lincicome’s parents drove her car up from Florida to Illinois and her mom will stay with her for the duration of the stay.

Lincicome, who is staying at a hotel, thought her days living out of a suitcase were over for a while. Little did she know that a one-day, pro-am would turn into an extended stay.

Lincicome posts copious photos and videos on social media.

She arrives at the hospital at 8 a.m. each day, staying until 9 p.m.

“I could literally stare at her all day,” said Lincicome, who hates having to leave Emery each night.

Lincicome posts copious photos and videos on social media, keeping her fans updated on Emery’s progress. Both mom and daughter are doing well. Lincicome said she’s already back to her pre-baby weight.

Inkster jokingly asked if she could play in September’s Solheim Cup. The U.S. captain and Gerina Piller came by the hospital shortly after Lincicome gave birth.

Lang and Lincicome, two major winners and Solheim Cup partners who were bridesmaids in each other’s weddings, will now be able to raise their children together on the LPGA. Lang announced this week that she’s due to give birth to her first child on Jan. 25.

SPRINGFIELD, NJ – A portion of the main clubhouse at Baltusrol Golf Club was damaged by a roof and attic fire Tuesday morning.

A portion of the building, which is more than 100 years old, sustained fire damage and water damage and has been closed until remediation work can be done, while another part remains open, according to Springfield Fire Capt. Michael Mastroeni.

According to police, around 11:16 a.m. a call was received about a smoke condition at the private golf club. When first responders arrived, they found active fire in the attic and roof of the main clubhouse.

Mastroeni said about 35 firefighters from Springfield, Millburn and surrounding towns responded to extinguish the fire. He said the fire was deemed under control after about 60 minutes.

The cause of the fire is considered accidental but remains under investigation, Mastroeni said.

This is believed to be the first time there has been a fire at the clubhouse, an old large building with a brick veneer and wood frame which includes a small hotel, wedding hall, locker rooms, restaurant and sleep quarters, according to Mastroeni.

One firefighter from Millburn Fire Department was transported to Overlook Hospital in Summit after a small section of the ceiling collapsed from pulling down wall board, Mastroeni said. The firefighters injuries are not considered life threatening, he said.

During the fire, Shunpike Road was closed to traffic between Eton Place and Baltusrol Way. The roadway has since been reopened, police said.

The golf course has been home to major tournaments.

According to the golf club’s website, in 2000, the U.S. Amateur Championship marked the 15th national championship played at Baltusrol. In addition, seven U.S. Opens have been played on the grounds.

In 2005, Baltusrol hosted its first PGA Championship, one of the most successful majors ever conducted at Baltusrol, and in 2016 the PGA returned for its centennial.
