RANCHO MIRAGE, Calif. [url=https://www.cheapspurs.com/1256j-jakob-poeltl-jersey-spurs.html]Jakob Poeltl Jersey[/url] . -- Michelle Wie and Lexi Thompson know exactly whats at stake Sunday at Mission Hills -- for themselves and the attention-starved LPGA Tour. "I think its great for the tour and its going to be a lot of fun," Wie said Saturday after tying Thompson for the third-round lead in the Kraft Nabisco Championship. "I think Lexi is a really entertaining golfer. I like to think Im somewhat entertaining as well. So, I think the both of us paired together is great." Theyre each trying to win their first major title, a victory that would be a big boost to the tour that felt slighted and upstaged this week when Golf Digest put model Paulina Gretzky on its cover after long ignoring the top female players. "I know people will be really excited about tomorrows pairing, but Im not really going to worry about it," Thompson said. "Im just going to go out and have fun." The 24-year-old Wie shot a bogey-free 4-under 68 to match the 19-year-old Thompson at 10-under 206. The popular Americans were teammates last year in the Solheim Cup. "I really like Lexi," Wie said. "I think shes a really good girl." The two 6-footers are power players, though Wie has sacrificed some distance for control and has been hitting low-flying 3-wood stingers off a lot of tees. "Thats kind of always been in my bag," Wie said. "Kind of reintroduced it back into my game the last couple of months. Its just something that Ive always felt comfortable doing and Ive played well on this golf course." Brooke Henderson of Smith Falls, Ont., topped the amateur leaderboard with a 2-under 70. The 16-year-old is in 19th spot at 1-under for the tournament. Thompson, already a three-time winner on the tour, settled for a 69 after missing a 3-foot par putt on the par-5 18th. She also missed two short birdie putts on the front nine. "Im getting looks at birdies and just waiting for a few more to drop," Thompson said. Charley Hull, the Englishwoman who turned 18 last month, was two strokes back along with five-time major champion Se Ri Pak. Hull birdied the 18th for a 66, the best round of the day. Pak shot 71. Both leaders said they were nervous. "I probably wont sleep that well," Wie said. "Its just the chance. You want something so badly. I dreamed about this all my life, so Im just trying to not think about it so much. Im just trying to think its a normal Sunday. ... But I think thats a good thing. Its a sign that Im really excited and I really want this." Thompson agreed. "But its a good nervous," Thompson said. "This is what Ive been waiting for and what Ive worked my whole life for." Wie is making her 12th start in the tournament. She was ninth in 2003 at age 13, fourth the following year and tied for third at 16 in 2006. She also was sixth in 2011. "I just go out there and I think I just really know what I need to do," Wie said. "I think that came with experience of playing so many rounds in my life." Wie has two victories, winning the 2009 Lorena Ochoa Invitational in Mexico and the 2010 Canadian Womens Open. She has been in the top 16 in all five of her starts this year, finishing a season-best fourth in Thailand. On Saturday, she birdied four of the first 11 holes and parred the last seven, leaving an 8-foot birdie putt short on 18. "Im really happy that with my placement," Wie said. Thompson struggled with her putting after a great day on the greens Friday in a bogey-free 64. She missed a 2 1/2-foot try on No. 4 and a 4-footer on No. 7. "I would say I had a few mis-reads," Thompson said. On 18, she drove close to the face of a right-side bunker and blasted out, leaving her 145 yards on the water-guarded hole that she would normally reach in two. Her approach went long and right, and her 80-foot birdie putt broke about 15 feet right to left, setting up the short par miss that cost her the outright lead and ended her bogey-free streak at 36 holes. "Not the ending I wanted," Thompson said. Hull birdied six of the last holes. She played in the Solheim Cup last year and won her first pro title last month in Morocco in a Ladies European Tour event. "I hit it quite well," Hull said. "My irons were pretty good and I hit some good drives. When I got myself in trouble, I was able to get out of it. Im pretty happy." Hull turned 18 on March 20 and could become the youngest major champion in LPGA Tour history. Morgan Pressel set the record at Mission Hills in 2007, winning at 18 years, 10 months, 9 days. "It would be the best feeling ever," Hull said. Pak birdied the par-4 16th after bogeying three of the first six holes on the back nine. The 36-year-old South Korean player won the last of her five major titles in 2006 and the last of her 25 LPGA Tour victories in 2010. "Theres nothing to complain about it," Pak said. "Of course, I mis-hit it there a little bit, but that will happen on this golf course." [url=https://www.cheapspurs.com/1196j-chimezie-metu-jersey-spurs.html]Chimezie Metu Jersey[/url] . The judge sternly instructed the prosecutor to restrain himself and he apologized -- then went right back to trying to pick holes in the testimony of the double-amputee runner. It was a harsh day of cross-examination for Pistorius, challenged relentlessly about his account of the moments just before he killed Reeva Steenkamp, as well as circumstances related to several firearms charges against him, including the firing of a gun in a crowded restaurant.

His fellow Finn, 21 years his junior, had just arrived in Anaheim and was hoping to stick with the Ducks.

Hoffman, the former star closer, will evaluate and help co-ordinate all pitchers at Double-A, Triple-A and the big league team. Byrnes says Hoffman "will be a key part of finishing the development of our younger pitchers.Each day throughout the World Junior Championship, TSN Director of Scouting Craig Button brings important issues and topics surrounding the tournament to the forefront. Today, Craig looks at the storylines heading into the gold medal game between Canada and Russia. HBI 1. Russians comfortable in Canada USSR/Russia has won gold by beating Canada on Canadian ice in 1986 (Hamilton), 1999 (Winnipeg) and 2003 (Halifax), plus recorded an epic comeback just across the border in 2011 (Buffalo). Canada has beaten USSR/Russia twice on home ice: in 1995 (Red Deer) and 2006 (Vancouver). HBI 2. Shestyorkin faces criticism Igor Shestyorkinn may not have the respect of Sweden – Gustav Forsling said, “He’s not a very good goalie” – but Shestyorkin is battle-tested.

He has faced 57 more shots than Zach Fucale along the way to beating a formidable American team and the defending silver medallists to reach the deciding game. HBI 3. Offence Must Produce Team Canada’s offence has largely failed in semi-final and medal games over the last two tournaments, producing just one goal in three of the four games. The Canadians enter the gold medal game with a tournament-leading 34 goals (to Russias 20) and the confidence of five goals against Slovakia. ' ' '
