Wholesale Air Max 97 China . Nordqvist and Ryu played in the same group. "Im always really happy to play with Anna," Ryu said. "We have so much fun always, so I love it. We pretty much played so well, especially on the back-nine. We hit a really great shot and she made every birdie putt. I was really excited to see her, to see how she is playing." Nordqvist is winless on the tour since the 2009 LPGA Tour Championship. "Were only halfway through and, obviously, the best golfers in the world are here so you cant really think about winning or leading the tournament right know," Nordqvist said. "We have two more days, so you have to try to play your game and put low scores out there." Phatlum, the first-round leader in the 36-player event, had a 69. "Im very happy with my score, but the putting not very good," Phatlum said. "I just missed a few short putts." South Koreas Inbee Park was a stroke back along with Americans Lexi Thompson and Gerina Piller. Thompson had a 64 for the best round the first two days. Piller shot 65, and Park had a 68. The 18-year-old Thompson won the LPGA Malaysia last month for her second tour title. "I just went into today playing fearless and just committed to my lines," Thompson said. "I dropped a few more putts today, and that always helps." The top-ranked Park swept the first three major championships of the season and has three other LPGA Tour wins this season. Shes winless in eight starts since the U.S. Womens Open in late June. Second-ranked Suzann Pettersen and No. 3 Stacy Lewis were tied for ninth at 6 under. Pettersen had a 68. The Norwegian player is coming off a successful title defence in the LPGA Taiwan, her third victory in her last five starts and fourth of the season. Lewis shot a 66. Michelle Wie had a 73 to drop into a tie for 20th at 2 under. She won the 2009 tournament for the first of her two LPGA Tour victories. Defending champion Cristie Kerr was 27th at 2 over, following a 77 with a 67. Tournament host Lorena Ochoa won 27 LPGA Tour titles before retiring in 2010. "Its been great. I love Mexico," Piller said. "Most people dont know this, but my maiden name is Mendoza. I dont speak much Spanish, but I love the food, love the people and its just a great tournament. I never got to play with Lorena, but shes been a huge inspiration." Under Armour Outlet Clearance . -- The Chicago Bears have agreed to terms with safety Brock Vereen and QB David Fales on four-year contracts. Cheap Air Max 95 Wholesale . According to TSN Hockey Insider Bob McKenzie, the deal will pay Schenn $2.25 million in the first year and $2.75 million in the second year.

Neither side would publicly confirm or deny any discussions were taking place, until the near unexpected happened. On Saturday night sources confirmed to TSN, the league and players agreed to terms on a new, tentative CBA, pending ratification by the unions players. A league source confirmed the CFLs board of governors must also ratify any potential agreement.Drew Willy may have been named the CFL Offensive Player of the Week following his clubs 45-21 victory over the Toronto Argonauts, but the quarterback got strong support from both his offensive line and another eye-opening surprise in the Winnipeg Blue Bombers offence. Nic Grigsby was superb in his CFL debut in Week 1, and the 25-year-old feels hes just getting started. "As the game went on my game started to come back," said Grigsby, who ran for 122 yards on 21 carries and added a pair of catches for 17. "It got a little slower. I still got a lot of stuff to get better on — just some little things and detail that coaches got on me about to be a better player and have a better game." The Bombers O-line opened up some wide lanes in the run game against the Argos. Winnipegs young tailback has history with one lineman in particular, who pulled from the right tackle spot to be the lead blocker on a couple big Grigsby gains up the middle. "Me and (Dan) Knapp, we went a long way (back)," said the University of Arizona product of his new favourite blocker. "We played against each other in college. He went to Arizona State, my rival, so when we got here in camp we bumped heads a little bit — not bumped heads — but just, you know, the rivalry-type stuff. But now were on the same team. Were in the same boat, and hes pulling for me and everything. I love them guys up front." The head coach isnt taken aback by Grigsbys impressive debut in the slightest. "Nope, didnt surprise me. Hes been steadily getting better all the way through camp," said Mike OShea. "My concern maybe early on was, he might not have taken advantage of every hole that was there, and now hes through it. It was just a matter of him getting comfortable with his vision, with his reads, and the CFL field — the size of it, I think. But hes done well." OShea is enamoured by Grigsbys ability to adapt and pick things up quickly. That goes double when youre protecting a lead late in the game. "One of the things thats impressive is, when were running that last three minutes and we have the ball and youre asking a guy to stay in bounds and slide, you know? For years and years and years American tailbacks come up here, they get in their first game and run out of bounds when we want that clock to run. You tell them and they still do it. But right away, I tell (Grigsby) once, he was sliding in bounds all the time making sure that clock kept running. Obviously hes an intelligent football player and took that instruction, basically in a three-second conversation, and applied it." With running back Will Ford still working to get back into game shape after a hamstring pull, and Paris Cotton out for a few weeks with a knee injury (hes been wearing a heavy brace in light on-ffield workouts during practice), Grigsbys fight to stay healthy enough to play has also impressed the coaching staff.

Nobodys at 100 per cent, I dont care who you are, (even) if youre a quarterback. Its day-to-day of getting better. Get your body in the cold tub, getting the therapy, and come ready to play. "You know youve got to be durable in this league. Its all about growing and depending on yourself to actually do the extra little things thats going to keep you on the field." This week sees another challenge, in that the Blue Bombers will try to prepare for their Week 2 opponent — the expansion Ottawa Redblacks — having minimal game film to study. Ottawa had a bye in Week 1. "Were going out there blind to the eye other than what the base preseason games are. And a lot of teams keep preseason really base," said Grigsby of the "vanilla" offence the Redblacks have shown. "Our coaching staff did a great job putting (video) cut-ups of the (Redblacks) coaches that they have now and what they did in the past, so were going to use that to our ability. Come game time there is that adjust-on-the-fly and be ready to go." NOTES: Eleven-year CFL veteran Korey Banks asked the team for his release this week after not securing a job in the teams starting lineup. The club has placed him on the suspended list indefinitely and flown him home to Atlanta... Mike OShea says he doesnt want to tinker too much with a lineup that looked pretty solid in Week 1. National cornerback Donovan Alexander may be ready to return following a calf injury, but Matt Bucknor will continue to start at field corner... Tailback Will Ford (hamstring) may be ready to go as well after missing both preseason games, but Nic Grigsby will start with the ball... Defensive backs Alex Suber (hamstring) and Marty Markett (high-ankle sprain) both still need time to recover and are again out this week... Slotback Cory Watson suffered a hamstring injury in the first half Thursday night and didnt return to the game. The 30-year-old will miss a week, at least, and it appears fellow national receiver Julian Feoli-Gudino, who hauled in a touchdown pass in Watsons second half absence, will start in his place... Defensive tackle Zach Anderson has missed some significant practice time this week with a heel contusion. OShea says he should be ready for the game... Another defensive tackle, Bryant Turner, has been excused from practice this week for the birth of his daughter. The 2013 Eastern All-Star is expected to play against Ottawa. If either Turner or Anderson are unable to go Thursday night, Kashawn Fraser is an option to come off the practice roster and dress. ' ' '
