Recording a hole-in-one in a tournament round is one thing, but what 54-year-old Anna Shultz managed to accomplish during her second-round match at the USGA's Senior Women's Amateur at Hershey Country Club is just a little more impressive.
Shultz, who was 2-up in her match with two holes to play, closed out Corey Weworski on the par-3 17th with a hole-in-one to move on to the next round. I don't know about you, but I can't think of a better ending to a match than watching the ball roll into the cup from the tee.
Even though Shultz went on to lose in the third round to Lisa Schlesinger, there's no question she'll remember the tee shot on the 17th at the Senior Women's Amateur for the rest of her life.Read More »

Maroney landed badly on a dismount and was carried off by medical personnel. Raisman then mounted the same set of bars, and fell when moving from the low bar to the high bar. She banged her legs on the cement.
Raisman is bruised and scraped, but won't have to undergo any other testing. Maroney, who battled a toe injury throughout the Olympics, will undergo further testing to diagnose her left knee.
Both gymnasts tweeted their thanks to fans who flooded their Twitter timelines with good wishes.
THANK YOU so much for all the kind words & support. I'm so thankful that I am OK, just some bruising on my knees and the rest of my legs!

For Bob Ewing and Antonie Hodge Ewing, a rocky future is alright with them.
Bob Ewing, 32, was introduced to both his loves, Antonie and rock climbing, through his job as a director of communications for a public interest law firm in Washington, D.C. He was introduced to the sport by a co-worker and introduced to his future wife three years ago by summer law clerks who were rooming with his now-bride, 30, a network relations marketing coordinator for the Institute for Humane Studies.

But it's also a time to recall the positives that came out of that day -- the kindness among strangers, the estrangements mended, the way a nation and a planet came together if only for a short time. In the midst of the confusion and despair, small happinesses came to mean more than ever. It was the worst of humanity; it was also, in some ways, the very best.
Some good things did in fact happen on this date. Let's reflect and remember the events of September 11, 2001 -- but if we have to cheer ourselves up with a few milestones from the world of sport, that's okay too. We're only human.
Do you agree with the decision to shut down Nationals pitcher Stephen Strasburg?
