McIlroy shares first-round lead at BMW Championship
Rory McIlroy shot a 3-under-par 67 to tie for the lead at the BMW Championship at Cherry Hills Country Club on Thursday.
Jordan Spieth and Gary Woodland also shot 67s to grab a share of the lead after the first round.
Play was suspended because of inclement weather that moved in late in the afternoon. A few players were waiting to finish their rounds, including Henrik Stenson, who was on the 18th hole when the horn blared. Stenson is one of nine players a shot back.
The event is the penultimate event in the FedEx Cup Championship chase.
Auriemma’s call to Mo’ne Davis violates NCAA rule
The NCAA determined Thursday that UConn women’s basketball coach Geno Auriemma violated a secondary rule when he made a congratulatory phone call to pitcher Mo’ne Davis after the Little League World Series.
Auriemma was told that Davis, who said her dream in life is to play point guard at UConn, is not defined by the NCAA as a prospective student-athlete because she has not begun classes at the high school level and that the call was permissible.
After a rival coach reportedly raised an issue bout the call, UConn officials opted to self-report it as a potential violation.
Davis, 13, is in eighth grade.
