world championships as he
ROGERS, Ark. Tom Jackson Jersey . - Whether its because of her improved play or the reason for it, Michelle Wie appears as comfortable on and off the golf course as at any time in her career. Wie continued her season-long surge on the LPGA Tour on Saturday, shooting her second straight 5-under 66 to take a two-shot lead in the suspended second round of the NW Arkansas Championship. The performance put the U.S. Womens Open champion within a round of back-to-back wins for the first time in her LPGA Tour career, not that she showed any signs of stress after reaching 10 under overall. In fact, shortly after surging into the lead at Pinnacle Country Club, Wie joined PGA Tour pros Rickie Fowler and Keegan Bradley as part of a social media challenge in dumping a bucket of ice water on herself on the driving range. Yes, life is good at the moment for Wie. "I think it comes hand in hand," Wie said about her winning and revamped attitude. "... I played really well toward the end of the year last year ... took a lot of time off, took about a month and a half. So, I just felt really refreshed, and I think it comes hand in hand." All 72 players in the afternoon session were unable to finish on Saturday because of thunderstorms, with second-round play expected to finish early Sunday before the final round begins later in the morning. Before the rain arrived, the morning pairings were once again left chasing Wie — who earned her first major victory at the U.S. Womens Open last week at Pinehurst after winning earlier in the season in her home state of Hawaii. So Yeon Ryu, paired with Wie, was second at 8 under after her second straight 67, while Suzann Pettersen, Chella Choi and Line Vedel were three strokes back. Pettersen had a 67, Choi shot 65, and Vedel had five holes left. Top-ranked and local favourite Stacy Lewis was four shots behind at 6 under, a week after finishing a shot behind Wie at Pinehurst. The two are training and practice partners in Florida, and Wie couldnt help but challenge her friend to the ice bucket shower after her dousing. "Michelles obviously playing some really good golf," Lewis said. "Im going to have to shoot a good number tomorrow. ... At least I put a good number up today, and well see what happens tomorrow." Lewis made the early charge Saturday to close within a shot of first-round leader Alena Sharp of Hamilton, much to the delight of the pro-Arkansas crowd — where Lewis played collegiately. Sharp made it through 15 holes prior to the delay. For the second straight day, however, Wie saved her best for the back. She jumped into contention with a 4-under 31 on the back nine on Friday. After teeing off on the back nine Saturday, she once again closed with a flurry — birdieing four of her final seven holes to shoot a 4-under 32 and surge into the lead. She putted 29 times on Saturday, a day after needing 28 in her opening round using her more hunched-over style. "These days, Michelles on fire," Ryu said. "I played with her today and yesterday, and her putting was awesome. I think thats why she could win a major tournament." Wie put the finishing touch on her round — and quest for a second straight tournament victory — with a 3-foot birdie putt on No. 9 that put her within reach of back-to-back wins. "I just want to kind of get through tomorrow," Wie said. "But at the same time, it is definitely in the back of my mind ... If I can get it done, hopefully it will happen." Wie held off Lewis by a shot to win her first major title in the U.S Womens Open. Playing a group behind Lewis on Saturday, Wie bogeyed her second hole, No. 11, and recovered with a birdie on the par-5 14th. She followed that with a second straight birdie on a par 5, getting up and down off the fringe on No. 18 to reach 6 under. Her birdie spree followed on the front nine, with large galleries following both Lewis and Wie. Lewis followed a sluggish first round in which she putted 31 times by needing only 24 putts on Saturday. She stumbled with a bogey out of the greenside bunker on the par-3 fourth hole before recovering with birdies on No. 5 and 9. Shell need more of the same if she or anyone else is to catch Wie on Sunday. "Its going to have to be something pretty low," Lewis said. "The way Michelle and a lot of those girls play, theyre not really going to come back to us." John Elway Youth Jersey . Kelli Stack and Alex Carpenter also scored for the Americans, who avoided a repeat of Finlands upset at the Four Nations Cup in Lake Placid, N.Y., in November. Finnish goalie Noora Raty made 58 saves in that one, but the three-time Olympian could stop just 40 of 43 U. Shannon Sharpe Broncos Jersey . "I could have been equipment manager but nooooo" from Lisa on Ice. Season 6, Episode 8. . The 23-year-old Poland international is back as first choice at Arsenal after losing his regular spot in the team on occasions over the last three seasons.BEAVER CREEK, Colo. - Liechtenstein skier Tina Weirather cant shake the Sochi Olympics. The occasional ache in her right leg serves as a reminder.She crashed in a downhill training run last February and badly banged her shin, an injury that still lingers.I have days where I can 100 per cent attack and go to my limit, where I feel confident and strong. But I have days where it doesnt work, said Weirather, who will compete in the super-G, downhill and giant slalom at the world championships that begin Tuesday with the womens super-G race. Im working on it, having more of the good days.If I can figure that out, I can be really good.Because when healthy, Weirather is as fast as anyone. The difficult part has been staying healthy.The 25-year-old has torn the ACL in her right knee three times. In Sochi, she was among the favourites until her crash.Ive had a lot of disappointments to deal with, said Weirather, whose best finish at worlds was 13th in the downhill two years ago in Austria. I cant say that my confidence is super, super high, but I think everything is possible. The skiing is there.No question about that. She has finished third in two races this season, including a super-G in Italy two weeks ago.Ski racing is all she has wanted to do since she was 3 years old — all she ever answered when anyone asked.Not surprising, really, considering skiing runs in the family. Her mother, Hanni Wenzel, was a two-time gold medallist at the 1980 Lake Placid Olympics. Her father, Harti Weirather, won the downhill at thee 1982 world championships as he represented Austria. Courtland Sutton Youth Jersey. .This has always been my dream. Thats never changed, she said. Then, after so many injuries, of course I had to think about it.Sometimes, Weirather cant help but wonder just how good she wouldve been at her other favourite sport — tennis. She does have a mean backhand. And her serve-and-volley game isnt bad, either.Weirather said she used to train with the mother of Swiss standout Martina Hingis — the same Martina Hingis who won an Australian Open mixed doubles title Sunday — and that Weirather once was told she had what it took to be a top-flight player.She really believed in me, recounted Weirather, who also cross trains by biking, wind surfing and hopes to one day take up paragliding. But in tennis, you always have to fight against someone.Thats why I love skiing, where its just you and the mountain and when you finish, you see your time.NOTES: U.S. Alpine director Patrick Riml called Bode Millers progress from back surgery unbelievable. But his availability for the races this week still remains uncertain. Miller, who had a herniated disk fixed in November, squeezed in some super-G training Sunday in nearby Vail. ... American Julia Mancuso said shes recently been bothered by a sore hip. Not enough to keep her out of worlds, of course, but enough to affect her skiing. Shes been working with her physiotherapist and was back on the slopes Sunday for giant slalom training. Its a lot better, she said. Everything is feeling good.
