SHANGHAI, China -- The only three Americans in the 78-man fi

Notapor carrie201918 » 10 Ago 2019, 08:24

SHANGHAI, China -- The only three Americans in the 78-man field were easy to find Thursday in the BMW Masters. Just look at the top of the leaderboard. Luke Guthrie packed a 2-litre bottle of Mountain Dew and flew halfway around the world for one week, hopeful he would at least broaden his experience by playing golf on foreign soil. He got more than he expected. The 23-year-old American took 19 putts -- one short of the European Tour record -- chipped in twice and had a 7-under 65. Not only did Guthrie have a three-shot lead, his score was more than 9.67 shots better than the course average. "It was one of the better rounds Ive ever played," Guthrie said. Even more surprising was the guy right behind him -- John Daly, playing for the first time since surgery in July to repair the torn tendon in his right elbow. After a strict rehabilitation of icing the elbow and drinking enough chocolate milk to put on 15 pounds, Daly navigated the 30 mph wind at Lake Malaren without a bogey for a 68. "I gained a little bit of weight, but when you take 15 or 16 weeks off, youre going to," Daly said. His mother once told him that Vitamin D milk was cure for any ailment. Adding the chocolate was Dalys idea. Another shot back was Peter Uihlein, the only American who didnt seem out of place at this European Tour event in Shanghai. Uihlein already has won on the European Tour this year, was runner-up twice and is 10th on the money list. He hasnt forgotten his New England roots. Uihlein watched the Boston Red Sox take a 3-0 lead in the World Series before he headed to the practice range, and perhaps it was no coincidence that upon learning of the 8-1 win, Uihlein played 5-under the rest of the way for a 69. "Its a good day," he said. Uihlein ended it with an exquisite flop shot from behind the 18th green in which he let the wind hold it up in the air, and used the slope to bring it back to tap-in range. The biggest surprise was the wind, which ripped across Lake Malaren all day and made the greens particularly fast, firm and crispy. Only 13 players managed to break par, a group that included Graeme McDowell (70) and Rory McIlroy (71). "Ive never witnessed wind like this in China," McIlroy said. Everything was new to Guthrie, who played in California and Las Vegas the last two weeks to start the new 2013-14 season on the PGA Tour. It makes little sense for him to travel all the way to China for one week before returning to America to play two more PGA Tour events. But after his debut at the British Open this year -- a missed cut -- Guthrie was determined to expand his horizons. He flew from Las Vegas to Shanghai, arriving Tuesday and never leaving the hotel. He shook off the jet lag during the pro-am on Wednesday, and he produced a score that no one imagined on such a blustery day. Guthrie drinks Mountain Dew to a fault, and he couldnt find any in Scotland. He brought his own stash to Shanghai, which makes him a quick study. "This is my first time over in China and Asia, and I just wanted to challenge myself to come travel abroad and get used to this, and just keep gaining experiences and get better at becoming a global player," he said. "And its nice to get off to a good start today." More important than the caffeine-laced soda was his short game. Guthrie had about a 25-foot putt on the 10th hole when he realized it was the longest putt he had faced all day. And then he realized he had one-putted every green on the front nine. What skewed the statistics was his three-hole stretch in the middle of the back nine that built some separation -- a routine up-and-down for birdie on the par-5 13th, pitching a 25-yard shot over the bunker and into the cup for an unlikely birdie on the 14th, and then using the wind to hold up a flop shot from beyond the green at the par-5 15th. Once it landed, the ball ran toward the cup like a putt and dropped for eagle. "The leader is 7-under, level par is 14th. That kind of sums it up, really," McDowell said. "Luke Guthrie is obviously a hell of a player. I dont know a lot about him except that hes good. And that was a great performance from him. Another windy day ahead tomorrow, so its just a case of trying to jockey for position." The BMW Masters is the first of four tournaments called "The Final Series," all with at least $7 million in prize money as European Tour members make their way to Dubai for the end of the season. McDowell is trying to chase down Henrik Stenson in the Race to Dubai. Stenson, who played with McDowell and McIlroy, opened with a 72. Paul Casey, Thongchai Jaidee and Wales Open winner Gregory Bourdy were among those at 70. McIlroy had a pair of three-putt bogeys -- one of them from 10 feet early in the round -- but was pleased with his play from tee-to-green. McDowell said he was looking like "the Rory McIlroy of 2011, 2012," alluding to when the 24-year-old from Northern Ireland won two majors, each by eight shots. "Its a bit ominous," he said of the ease in McIlroys swing. Coming off a tie for second in South Korea last week, McIlroy was pleased with the quality of his golf, and with his position. "It could have been better," he said. "But on a day like today, its just good to keep yourself there, or thereabouts." Fake Yeezy Boost 350 V3 Shoes . Or take a relaxing vacation somewhere warm.

Head coach Lindy Ruff confirmed on Sunday that his starting goalie has a head injury and the team will take it day by day.WATERLOO, Ont. -- Shanshan Feng is alone at the top but she has one goal in mind after the third round at the Manulife Financial LPGA Classic. "Im still going for 25 under," said Feng, not particularly worried that she has just a two-shot lead at Grey Silo Golf Course. Feng shot a 4-under-par 67 on Saturday to go to 15 under after 54 holes, a couple of shots ahead of Inbee Park and Michelle Wie, who finished at 13 under. Park came out of nowhere with a 65 to get into mix, while Wie struggled through her round but managed a 68. Feng, who said once again that she ignored the leaderboard throughout the day, admitted she put some undo pressure on herself after going 4 under though the first six holes. "Maybe that actually made myself to think a little more that I wanted to do better and I missed a lot of birdie putts, plus one bogey," she said. Feng added though, that coming into the tournament, she didnt stress about winning. "Last year, I missed the cut, so this year Im here just to have fun and try and play better than last year. I guess I did. I think tomorrow I will have no pressure. If youre leading in the tournament, I dont think you have pressure." The pressure did seem to get to Hee Young Park, who was tied with Feng after the second round but bogeyed three of the last four holes to shoot 1-over 72 and drop to 10 under. That opened the door for Inbee Park, who started off hot with five birdies on the front nine. "I played really well on the front nine. I holed a lot of putts," said Inbee Park. "I feel like I hit the ball great today. I had a lot of opportunities on the back nine also, but just missed a couple putts. I gave myself a chance for tomorrow." Just two shots behind, Inbee Park, the worlds second-ranked player, feels that Grey Silo lends to putting up a good score and making a run at her 10th career LPGA victory. "I dont know where Shanshan is going to finish, but I know there are a lot of opportunities on this golf course. There is a possibility we can go really low and Im just happy to be in contention for the final round." Wie, who had three bogeys to go along with six birdies on thhe day, is hoping that going 2 under on the final three holes will give her some momentum into the final 18 holes.dddddddddddd "I think I tried to go too low in the beginning today. Im just going to go out there and you know theres birdie holes, if I just hit the shots I need to hit, birdies will happen. Nothing good will happen out of me forcing anything," Wie said. Despite the shaky round, Wie was in a good mood afterwards. "I broke a nail out there as well too, which I think I was more pissed about that than bogeys," she joked. There are still several players in the hunt, with Christie Kerr in fourth place after shooting 65 to go 12-under par. Lydia Ko (64) and Anna Nordqvist (69) are at 11 under. Four players round out the top 10 tied at 10 under. Hamiltons Alena Sharp is leading the Canadian contingent in the third round, playing a bogey-free round of 65 to move to 6 under and sit in a tie for 23rd place. Sharp credited her low score to changing her putter after the second round. "I brought the one out I putted with last year and won the Symetra Tour event at the start of this year with," she said. "I just put it in the closet for a little while and I was tired of my other putter, so I brought it out this morning and made a putt on my first hole and I was off to the races. The confidence was right there right away." She added that the weather also factored into her score. On Thursday, high winds wreaked havoc on scores, while crosswinds during the second round made players grind out lower scores. "Its really calm and it makes a big difference. The wind is a little bit different in direction and I think it makes some of the holes a little bit easier. Im just hitting it really well right now and driving it well, so I dont have a lot of long irons into the greens," Sharp said. Sue Kim of Langley, B.C., is right behind her today at 5 under after shooting a round of 67, while Jennifer Kirby of Paris, Ont., and Brooke Henderson of Smiths Falls, Ont., sit at 3 under after identical scores of 69. Nicole Vandermade of Brantford, Ont., shot an even-par 71 to sit at 1 over heading into the final day. ' ' '
