Kim leads Lewis through 54 at ANA Inspiration

first_imgRANCHO MIRAGE, Calif. – Sei Young Kim made two late birdies Saturday to take a three-stroke lead in the ANA Inspiration. The long-hitting South Korean player shot a 3-under 69 to reach 10 under at Mission Hills with a round left in the first major championship of the year. Kim holed a downhill 18-footer from the fringe on the par-4 16th and made a 10-foot birdie putt on the par-3 17th. She two-putted for par from the back fringe on the par-5 18th. Stacy Lewis was second after a 68. The 30-year-old Texan, the 2011 winner for the first of her 11 LPGA Tour titles, bogeyed Nos. 15 and 17. The 22-year-old Kim won her first LPGA title in February in the Bahamas. A five-time winner on the South Korean tour, she’s making her 13th LPGA start. Top-ranked Lydia Ko shot a 74, her second straight over-par round after tying the LPGA record for consecutive rounds under par at 29 on Thursday. She was tied for 48th at 2 over. Ko made an 8-foot putt on 18 for her lone birdie of the round. She has at least one birdie in all 187 of her rounds in 49 career events on the tour. Morgan Pressel, Brittany Lincicome and Ariya Jutanugarn were tied for third at 6 under. Lincicome shot a 70 after driving into the water on 18 and making a bogey. Pressel had a 71, and Jutanugarn shot 66. ANA Inspiration: Articles, videos and photos Lewis birdied six of the first 12 holes to take the lead at 9 under. She ran into trouble on the par-4 15th when her drive went to the left, with a palm tree possibly saving it from going out of bounds over the property fence that runs along Gerald Ford Drive. The ball dropped into a bunker and she left her approach in the tangled rough in front of the right greenside bunker. She flopped out and missed a 25-foot par putt. Lewis settled for a par on the 16th. After her 167-yard approach ticked the cup on the way past, she pulled her 5-foot birdie try left. Lewis three-putted the par-3 17th for her second bogey, running her 20-foot downhill birdie try 8 feet past. She had a chance to get the stroke back on 18, but missed a 6-foot birdie putt. Pressel won in 2007 to become the youngest major champion at 18 years, 10 months, 9 days. Tied with playing partner Kim at 8 under with three holes left, Pressel missed short par putts on 16 and 17. She lipped out a 4-footer on 16 and missed from 3 feet on 17. Lincicome, the 2009 winner, chipped in for birdies on Nos. 9 and 16 and made a 20-foot birdie putt on 17 before her closing bogey. Defending champion Lexi Thompson was tied for ninth at 4 under after a 71. She was 7 under with five holes left, then made three straight bogeys and closed with two pars.last_img read more

Galway 0-10 Dublin 0-7 – National Camogie League

first_imgprint WhatsApp Facebook Twitter Email Galway got the defence of their Littlewoods Ireland Camogie League Division 1 title off to a winning start, coming out the right side of a 0-10 to 0-7 scoreline at TU Blanchardstown. The All-Ireland champions looked rusty but credit must go to a Dublin side that was getting the season under way under new managers John Treacy and Willie Braine without a number of key players for a variety of reasons. Scores proved hard to come by but the visitors led by three moving into the second quarter, points from Rebecca Hennelly (two), Caitriona Cormican and goalkeeper Sarah Healy from a long-distance free giving them the edge. Dublin finished the half strongly though and a couple of points from Sinéad Wylde had them well in touch at the interval, trailing by 0-5 to 0-3. The hosts got to within one of Galway twice in the second period but the experienced All-Ireland champions always put a little bit more daylight between the sides. Martha Donoghue split the posts soon after the resumption and when Carrie Dolan and Niamh Kilkenny stretched the gap to three, Wylde and Kerrie Finnegan got it back to the minimum again with 40 minutes elapsed. Healy landed her second monster point and Hennelly converted two frees for Cathal Murray’s contingent to take the verdict. After the game, Galway manager Cathal Murray spoke to Tommy Devane…last_img read more

My First #SHRMLead Experience!

first_imgMy next session was with Karlyn Borysenko on tapping into your unique leadership style. She started with going over how you can be a leader no matter what your title is! Creating a vision, gaining buy-in, executing in stages and building momentum, etc. I learned so much! Then she went into different leadership styles based on the DiSC profiles and how you should really understand your style, and your strengths and weaknesses when it comes to leading those with other styles. There is no “right” leadership style, and we should all be mindful and aware of our styles and how we can adapt.The final session of the day was with Val Grubb on moving from tactical thinker to strategic leader. This was really helpful for someone with my level of experience. I know I’m a great executor. I love checking things off of my to-do list. Val shared attributes of strategic HR leaders such as being willing to take risks, being forward thinking, making plans to track deadlines and prioritize how to get there. Being forward thinking, and thinking long-term was something I hadn’t thought much about. She gave us actionable “homework” assignments such as do you know how people directly impact financial performance? Are you keeping up with industry trends? Do you know your company’s 5 to 10 year goals and what you can start doing now to get there?Seeing my blogger friends again, Carlos and Jazmine (and Mary of course!) was the highlight of the trip. Conferences are more fun with friends! I always felt apart of something bigger and it was fun to catch up in between sessions on what we learned and what we were excited about. Can’t wait to see you all again in Vegas for #SHRM19, but hopefully sooner!  If you have any questions about the conference or interested in more information on the sessions I attended, please reach out to me!Originally published on Claire Petrie blog. All I can say is… 2018 has been my year! Before this year, I had only been to company conferences. Between #SHRM18 and #SHRMlead, my perspective on networking and professional development has completely changed. I’ve been missing out on so much all of these years!My first #SHRMLead experience was a great one. This year the conference was October 2-3 at the Sheraton Boston. It was interesting having #SHRM18 as my first conference, because it set the bar and expectations high! #SHRMLead was so nice because it was smaller and more laid back. I just assumed that all conferences were like #SHRM18 since that was my first one! There are definitely pros and cons to both big and small conferences. What I loved about #SHRMLead was that there was more time for intimate conversations and networking. For lunch on Tuesday, we were grouped by industry. I was at a great table of eight other HR pros in manufacturing where we discussed recruiting and retention struggles and ideas. We used LinkedIn’s “find nearby” feature at our table so we could all connect and continue the conversation after the conference. On Tuesday night, there was an awesome happy hour which I talk more about below. Read on!Day 1On Day 1, I wasn’t really sure what to expect! I was seeing four speakers who I had not been familiar with in the past – Claire Shipman (keynote), Heather Christie, Olivia Fox Cabane (keynote) and Michael Lyons. I quickly realized that I was in the right place. Whether you’re a new or more experienced leader, I think we all need to be inspired and reminded of what makes leaders great!As a relatively new leader, I was excited to chose my sessions and learn more about more strategic topics such as coaching and facilitating. Heather Christie talked about her 7 step coaching model, which was all new information for me. Her main theme was how to get people from off the court (blaming, excuses, negativity) to on the court (personal accountability. Reminded me of Cy Wakeman a little bit – no drama and  no ego!) by being a coach!Michael Lyons presented on “connecting the dots” and how to grow your career. These dots consisted of leadership skills, continuing education, values, career plan, time management, passion, communication, etc. and incorporating all of them into your leadership style and how you define success.After the sessions for the day, I was fortunate enough to meet up with Callie Zipple, Field Services Director for SHRM to record TWO episodes for the HonestHR podcast! Twitter brought us together through a mutual friend Drew Cherry, and it was great to meet her for the first time in person and do the podcast! (You can always find all episodes of the podcast here) We talked about building credibility as a young professional and the war for talent.After recording the episodes, we went back down to the conference area and joined most of the other staff, attendees and speakers for a happy hour. It was the size happy hour I was used to! Easy to navigate around the room, and people were chatting in small groups of 4 to 5. It was easy and stress-free to join into another group and introduce yourself. Everyone I said hi to for the first time seemed excited to see me, and this was a great feeling. The speakers were floating around as well introducing themselves, and it was so nice to have conversations with them and get to know them better!Day 2I knew Day 2 was going to be a great day because I knew all of the speakers already for the concurrent sessions I was attending! Plus Phil Jones was an engaging keynote and taught us the magic of word choices when trying to influence people to take action and move through change.I started my day at “Facilitating for Results” with Angelina Darrisaw Cheeks. I had reached out to Angelina to do a pre-conference blog post (you can read it here!) and she got back to me right away and was excited to promote her session. Because we did the blog post, she recognized me at happy hour the night before and came over to say hi! I was so excited that a speaker was coming over to chat with me. Angelina is a great presenter and has a lot of energy. Her session taught me to think differently about training and facilitating – what is the outcome of this training?  Who’s the best person to deliver it? Should the speaker or attendees be doing most of the talking?last_img read more

Theo: ‘My European Milan dream’

first_img Watch Serie A live in the UK on Premier Sports for just £11.99 per month including live LaLiga, Eredivisie, Scottish Cup Football and more. Visit: Theo Hernandez explains why he took a pay cut, believes he can achieve his dream of “winning the Champions League at Milan” and has more “freedom” under Stefano Pioli. The former Real Madrid full-back joined this summer after face-to-face talks with club legend and current director Paolo Maldini. “I did some silly things in Madrid, but I have matured as a person since then,” he told La Gazzetta dello Sport. “It was an honour for me to be chosen by Maldini, a man who wrote history not just with Milan, but of football in general. He was very convincing and I didn’t need long to accept the offer. “I even talked to my agent about taking a pay cut for Milan and we immediately agreed. Milan is a club with great history, one of the sides with the most trophies in the world. It was worth making a sacrifice for that. “I’m still only 22 and have a lot to learn. Milan is a fundamental step in my career and I want to stay here for many years, to write my place in the history books. “My dream is to win the Champions League with Milan, but first we need to qualify. I don’t know how long it’ll take to get back to the top, but I believe we’re on the right track and can finish in the top four this season.” It was a rough start, as coach Marco Giampaolo was sacked just seven games into his tenure, while Pioli made his debut with a 2-2 draw against Lecce. “Giampaolo said I was tactically undisciplined, but I did come to Italy with the idea of improving that aspect of my game. It’s true that I like to attack and push forward, but I do know that I have to do more defensively,” noted Theo. “We have more freedom under Pioli and I really like his new tactical system. The important thing is that I help the team and I know that in the end I am a defender and must work more covering the spaces. Pioli gives us some freedom, but not too much, as in Italy it’s important to have a clearly-defined tactical organisation. “We’re learning a great deal with Pioli, he knows what he’s talking about and we will slowly climb back up the table.” Theo Hernandez never quite delivered on his promise at Real Madrid and freely admits he could’ve done better off the field as well as on. “I did a few silly things, but I am still young. I consider myself a calm and fun person to be around, I like nothing more than staying home with my family and my dogs. “I do need to be careful that I don’t put on weight, because being in Italy I do love pasta, pizza and risotto…”last_img read more

India v Australia, 1st Test Day 4: as it happened

first_imgDavid Warner had scored 145 in Australia’s first innings.Hello and welcome to the coverage from day four of the first Test between Australia and India at Adelaide.ScorecardAustralia (2nd innings):Stumps: It’s stumps at Adelaide as Australia reach 290 for 5 with a lead of 363 runs. The three sessions belonged to Australia with a hundred from Warner and useful knocks from Steve Smith and Mitchell Marsh. Thanks for tuning in and see you tomorrow.Steve Smith brings up a brilliant half-century after Mitchell Marsh scored a quick-fire 26-ball 40. Australia’s lead now past 350. 62 overs: Expensive one from Karn Sharma, Smith takes him on by slamming two boundaries. 10 from the over.59.1 overs: Out. Warner goes for the switch hit but the legspinner Karn Sharma wins the battle by castling him through the legs. Australia four down.58.5 overs: Four. Steve gives the charge to Rohit Sharma and carves the ball through the extra-cover fence. David Warner made the best of the reprieve he got earlier by notching up his 11th Test hundred, his second in this match. He also becomes the second Australian to score hundreds in both the innings against India after Sir Don Bradman. 48 overs: Maiden. Good comeback by Ishant Sharma after spraying the ball all over in the last session. Warner batting on 90 and lead extends to 248.46 overs: Out.  Varun Aaron gets his first wicket by getting Clarke caught behind for 7. Short and wide from Aaron and Clarke goes for the cut but gets an edge.45 overs: In the third session, Mohammad Shami looks to have found the right line and length. Maiden over from him, Australia lead by 235 runs. advertisement40.5 overs: Four. Length ball from Mohammad Shami and Michael Clarke drives it through extra cover. Australia 149 for 2. 38.5 overs: Out. Mohammad Shami gives India crucial breakthrough in the first over after tea by castling Shane Watson for 33. Hint of reverse swing and the ball crashes on to the stumps after brushing his pads. Tea: The session was dominated by Australia with Warner getting a fifty. The hosts extend their lead to 212 runs. The incident has got Aaron all charged up, but not going his way as he concedes three boundaries off the over. Maybe Kohli needs to have a word with him. Australia now lead by 209 runs. 33.3 overs: Varun Aaron had success by cleaning up David Warner, but unfortunately the bowler had overstepped. Few words also exchanged, Kohli, Dhawan also join in forcing umpire Ian Gould to take control of things. Till now everything was all nice in the Test match. Varun Aaron finally gets the ball, Kohli should have brought him on earlier considering Ishant’s wayward bowling this morning. Australia 117 for 1 and lead by 190 runs. 24.5 overs: Fifty up for David Warner, his 14th in Tests off 63 balls. The left-hander is just carrying on the momentum from first innings as Australia now lead by 166 runs. 21 overs: Another expensive over and this time the bowler Ishant Sharma conceding 10 runs, which included two boundaries. Australia 87 for 1 (Warner on 45).20 overs: Four. Shane Watson after spending quiet moments at the crease, goes to the pitch of the ball and plays past mid-on. Australia lead now past 150.David Warner doesn’t allow Karn Sharma to settle down and scores nine runs off the over, which included two fours. India missing a regular spinner here.16.3 overs: Four. Warner comes down the track and hits Vijay straight down the ground. Australia lead by 128 runs now. 12.1 overs: Out. Karn Sharma gives India first breakthrough by getting rid of Chris Rogers for 21 caught by Rohit Sharma at short midwicket. Australia 38 for 1 and lead by 111 runs. Lunch: David Warner and Chris Rogers guide Australia to 32 for 0 at lunch with a lead of 105 runs after India were all out for 444 in the morning session of day four. Nathan Lyon claimed five wickets as Australia bowled India out for 444 on day four to hold on to a lead of 73 runs. Openers Chris Rogers and David Warner have started well with Kohli throwing the ball to spinners early on a  turning Adelaide track.Day 3 round-up: A century by stand-in captain Virat Kohli and threehalf-centuries lifted India to 369 for 5 at stumps on Thursday on thethird day of the first Test, leaving them 148 adrift of Austalia whodeclared overnight at 517 for 7.Kohli made 115, battingmost of the last two sessions of an extended day’s play, sharingpartnerships of 81 with Cheteshwar Pujara (73), 101 with Ajinkya Rahane(62) and 74 with Rohit Sharma (33 not out) to steer India towards parity in a match impeded by Wednesday’s rain.He was out fewer than four overs from the end of the day on which bowlers mostlylaboured on a pitch at the Adelaide Oval which is taking turn but isprobably too batsman-friendly to produce a result without bolddeclarations. Kohli was also involved in an incident Thursday whichreflected cricket’s new mood since the recent death of Australia Testbatsman Phillip Hughes. He was hit first ball on the helmet from a Mitchell Johnson bouncer.advertisementlast_img read more
