INDIANAPOLIS - Suzy Whaley is taking another crack at golfs old boys network.More than one decade after becoming the first woman to qualify for a PGA event in 58 years, the 48-year-old Whaley became the first female officer in the PGA of Americas history. Shes on course to become the organizations first female president in 2018, too.Whaley received 52.63 per cent of the 114 votes in a three-way race for secretary near the end of Saturdays meeting in Indianapolis. Russ Libby was second at 33.33 per cent and Michael Haywood was third at 14.04 per cent.As the final tally was posted on two video boards in the front of a hotel ballroom, Whaleys supporters pumped their fists, delegates gave her a standing ovation and Whaley hugged everybody in sight as she took a deliberate 5-minute stroll from the back of the room to one of two head tables.Its an incredibly special day for me, my family, the Connecticut section and our members, Whaley said. Our association has a long-term strategic plan and Im excited to part of implementing that plan. We have so many opportunities to bring diverse groups into the game, thats what Im excited about.The selection of Whaley, who in 2003 became the first woman to qualify for a mens event since Babe Zaharias, is just a start.She will serve the next two years as PGA secretary, then two years as vice-president before starting a two-year term as president and another two-year term as honorary president. Each promotion must be approved through a formal vote, which is usually considered a formality.For the PGA, its a chance to turn the page on one of the organizations darker chapters. President Ted Bishop was ousted last month after using social media to call European pro Ian Poulter a Lil Girl and writing that Poulter sounded like a little girl squealing during recess.Supporters made it clear that the association needed to go in a different direction and that choosing Whaley would help.Who among is more passionate about the teaching the game to every person, to show the magic of our game to every child, to every man and to every woman? Connecticut section member Gary Reynolds said in his nominating speech. Sometimes we are lucky, lucky to experience a moment where we can embrace change.Voters didnt just want to embrace change, they wanted to embrace Whaley, a mother of two and the director of instruction at her own golf academy in Croswell, Connecticut. In 2010, the Farmington, Connecticut, resident became the second woman elected to the PGAs board of directors.But the historic vote drew raves from every corner of the room — friends, supporters, board members, teaching pros and especially her new executive colleagues.Whaley was so touched that she forgot to insert her own name into the oath during the swearing-in ceremony.I am so proud to be a PGA member and so honoured to serve all of you, she said as her voice cracked.The selection of Whaley wasnt the only business Saturday.Voters approved Derek Sprague, of Malone, New York, to become the associations 39th president. They also voted to promote Paul Levy of Indian Wells, California, from secretary to vice-president. And they extended Allen Wronowskis term an additional two years. He will fill the void left by Bishops ouster.But it was the election of Whaley that could have the greatest long-term impact for an organization that has been mostly male-dominated that will celebrate its centennial anniversary in 2016.I think its great to have a woman in a national leadership position because I think it opens the door for women in other leadership positions, Sprague said. It can only inspire other women to get into leadership positions. Nate Davis Youth Jersey . The result was a game-winning, power-play goal.

Theyre hoping to use that offensive output as momentum when they meet Russia on Friday at the Bell Centre.Were just going to stick to what we did (versus Canada), American forward Alex Tuch said after the loss. Well look at some video and build off that.We just have to build off this game and take it as a positive. Were going to build off those last couple of minutes and take it to (Russia) in the quarter-finals.Russia took the third seed in Group B after a 4-1 loss to the Czech Republic on Wednesday. The Americans finished second in Group A behind Canada.Down 3-1 late in the third period against the Canadians, the U.S. hit the accelerator. With less than three minutes to go, winger Sonny Milano pounced on an errant pass by Canadian defenceman Dillon Heatherington and fed linemate Hudson Fasching with a behind-the-back pass.Fasching moved towards the goal and found Dylan Larkin alone at the side of the net, cutting the deficit to one with 2:34 remaining.With American goaltender Thatcher Demko on the bench for the extra attacker, the United States pressed on. With two minutes on the clock, Canadian netminder Eric Comrie made back-to-back saves on slapshots by Jack Eichel and Will Butcher.Perhaps the Americans best chance to tie the game came in the final minute, when Tuch fired a shot from the slot that was blocked and smothered by Canadian defenceman Darnell Nurse. The home team quickly skated down the ice and Sam Reinhart scored an empty-netter.Down 4-2, the Americans werent done. Twelve seconds after Reinhart restored Canadas two-goal lead, Larkin beat Comrie with a wrist shot from the faceoff circle.But that was as close as the Americans would come.Well be better tomorrow, said Demko, who made 40 saves against the Canadians. Just looking at video, theres a lot we can learn from that game.dddddddddddd Hopefully we can make some strides heading into the quarter-finals. It wont be too hard to refocus. We have a job to do.We have to stick to what we weve been doing this tournament. Weve had some good success so far. Nothing drastic needs to change. We just need to keep playing USA hockey.Entering the Canada game, the Americans (2-1-0-1) had outscored their opponents 11-1 overall. After a tight shootout victory against the Finns in the tournament opener, the U.S. wins became more convincing. Consecutive shutouts against the Germans and Slovaks confirmed that the Americans were among the tournament favourites.Now, its that frantic finish in the third period against Canada that the Americans want to carry over into the quarter-final. In one of its worst-ever group-stage showings, Russia (1-1-0-2) limped into the final eight after losing two in a row.Ivan Barbashyov, Pavel Buchnevich and Vyacheslav Leshenko lead Russia with four points each. Leshenko has three goals, two of which came in Russias 3-2 loss to Sweden.Goaltenders Igor Shestyorkin and Ilya Sorokin have split Russias four games — each has a win and a loss. There was no immediate word on who would start against the U.S. American head coach Mark Osiecki wants his players to stick to the game plan that worked well at times against the Canadians.We want to worry about ourselves, he said after the loss. We talked about that in the locker-room immediately after our game. Lets get better, turn the page and worry about ourselves. Look in the mirror and find a way to get better.The U.S. will hope for continued productivity from Larkin and Milano, who were key late in the Canada game. They lead the Amer
