RIO DE JANEIRO -- Inbee Park was in the 16th fairway, only 50 yards from the hole, and couldnt imagine a worse spot to be. air max 1 schweiz .She already had lost a three-shot lead in gusts up to 30 mph Friday at Olympic Golf Course. And now she faced a shot that would punish anything just a little long or a little left. The safe play was the middle of the green and get out of there with a par.Park had other ideas.She took two months off from golf to get ready for the Olympics, and it was time to trust her instincts.Luckily, I had an uphill lie, she said. I said, `Im just going to go for this pin. I have confidence that I can stop it if I hit the distance. I played aggressive golf there, and it really worked good.Starting with that pitch to tap-in range, she birdied two straight holes and shot a 1-under 70 to take a two-shot lead into the final round.Now comes the real test.Just as difficult as the wind was seeing the name of Lydia Ko -- the No. 1 player in womens golf -- right behind her.Ko made the first hole-in-one of her career as she raced into contention with a 65, closing the gap to two shots. The 19-year-old Kiwi started the day seven shots behind and now has a solid chance at gold.We all know theres a lot on the line at the end of tomorrow, Ko said. I think Ive done a good job of putting myself in there and still having the chance to be standing on that podium.Gerina Piller, the American who narrowly qualified for the Olympics in her final event, shot a 68 and joined them in the final group, two shots behind. Piller has never won on the LPGA Tour, though there is something about playing for her country that brings out her best golf. Pillers signature moment was making the winning putt for the United States in the Solheim Cup last year in Germany.I feel like I have a chance at this, she said. Im going to try to do the best I can and represent my country with class.Shanshan Feng of China shot 68 and was three shots back.Starting times have been moved up with play starting on the first and 10th tees because of more rugged conditions in the forecast.Park was still the player to beat.The 28-year-old South Korean finally got her putter going, and shes among the best in womens golf on the greens. Her struggles were with the longer clubs, especially as the wind became fierce. Park tried to play short on the par-4 12th into the wind and hit into the sandy native area. On the par-3 14th, her hybrid went well over the green into more trouble, and she lost her lead.Those two late birdies helped alleviate one final mistake. On the par-5 closing hole, Parks tee shot found a bunker and it took three more shots to reach the green. She made one last bogey and was at 11-under 202.I feel I hung in there, and Im very happy I have a chance tomorrow, Park said. It was hard to judge the distance, and on the green it was hard to concentrate because the ball was oscillating. Im pretty exhausted.Charley Hull of Britain fell out of the chasing pack by missing three par putts inside 5 feet on the back nine. She shot 74 and was six shots behind. Brooke Henderson of Canada, the No. 2 player in womens golf, struggled even more. Henderson was still in the mix when she four-putted for double bogey on the 16th hole, taking three of those putts from 3 feet. She wound up with a 75 and was seven back.Ko is right where she wants to be and is the most seasoned of those going after the gold medal, the first for womens golf since 1900. She is a four-time winner on the LPGA Tour this year, the best player in womens golf and finally got some confidence in her putter.She used a 7-iron for her hole-in-one on the par-3 eighth hole -- the second of the day after Lin Xiyu of China made an ace on that hole -- as the highlight of a front nine in which she shot 29. Ko was stunned to hear the cheering when it dropped in.I made my first ever hole-in-one, so to do that at the Olympics, it doesnt get any better than that, Ko said. But to put myself back into good position going into tomorrow I think was a job well done going forward.Stacy Lewis went backward. The American, who began the day one shot behind, made a bogey on the easy par-5 fifth by hitting into the water, and closed out her round with a double bogey on the 18th when her third shot sailed long into the native area, and she chipped back over the green. She shot 76. nike air max schweiz . Goals from Jerome Boateng, Franck Ribery and Thomas Mueller extended Bayerns unbeaten run to a record 37 matches. "This record is incredible," Bayern coach Pep Guardiola said. air max 1 kaufen outlet . LOUIS -- Valtteri Filppula assisted on three of Tampa Bays four goals, and the Lightning beat the St. http://www.airmax1outlet.ch/ . Speaking Thursday on TSN 1050 Thursday, the Leafs GM also touched on the questions surrounding the teams leadership and the struggles of his big-name free-agent signing. “Its not from lack of effort from the coaching staff. ALLEN PARK, Mich. -- Dan Orlovsky and Jake Rudock had very similar statistics in the preseason. Orlovsky will begin the season as the Detroit Lions backup quarterback, though, and theres one number that might have been the difference.Orlovsky has 12 years of NFL experience, and thats a dozen more than Rudock, a rookie out of Michigan.Hes certainly one of those guys thats been around, understands the league, understands what he sees from a defensive standpoint, Lions coach Jim Caldwell said. Hes played in games, has experience under his belt. Theres a number of different things. Hes an outstanding leader, just to name a few.Orlovsky got the nod over Rudock even though there was little difference in their preseason performance. Orlovsky was 33-of-56 passing for 338 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions. Rudock was 30 of 51 for 333 yards, four touchdowns and one interception.We take everything into consideration, practice, games, meetings, Caldwell said. That evaluation is wide and broad, just not a couple different instances.Orlovskys experience was a leg up, but he has also seen enough to know his veteran status wouldnt guarantee the backup job.I dont ever take it for granted, Orlovsky said. I dont ever take it lightly. Its a big responsibility and it means a lot to me. I worked for it but it wasnt like a surprise or anything. It was my expectation level and like I said, getting ready for Week 1 and go about my business.Rudock, a sixth-round draft pick, was cut and then signed to the Lions practice squad, where he can practice without the pressure of having to enter the game if something happens to starter Matthew Stafford.Hell be fine, Orlovsky said of Rudock. What hes done is progress. Thats what you expect and hope him to do is progress. He just needs to continue to do that and take advantage of this year of learning how to do it. günstig nike air max store. There is a big difference between preseason and regular season.Now the onus is on the Lions young offensive line to protect Stafford.First-round pick Taylor Decker is at left tackle; Travis Swanson is entering his third season, his second as starting center; left guard Laken Tomlinson has one year of experience; right guard Larry Warford is starting his fourth season; and right tackle Riley Reiff is the true veteran with four seasons under his belt.I feel like were getting good cohesion going, Warford said. Were getting comfortable playing next to each other and Im excited for it. Were still working out kinks, thats going to be an ongoing process. But I feel really good about this line.The five played as a unit during all of training camp and the preseason.They get accustomed to working with one another, Caldwell said. Get a good feel for one another. That takes time. It doesnt happen overnight, it takes time and then you couple that with the fact that some of those guys are going to be seeing some things for the first time.The Lions begin the season next Sunday at Indianapolis.Game notes TE Eric Ebron returned to practice for the first time since injuring his ankle during an intrasquad scrimmage Aug. 6 at Ford Field. C Graham Glasgow and T Corey Robinson also returned to practice. The only player not practicing was LB Jon Bostic (foot). ... The Lions announced the signings of WR Isaac Fruechte and LB Steve Longa to their practice squad. The team now has 10 players on the squad.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP-NFL ' ' '
